New Version of 'Four Questions' Celebrates... Obama (barfin' time)
Arutz Sheva ^ | 11/4/12 | Rachel Hirshfeld

Posted on 04/11/2012 5:28:36 AM PDT by Eleutheria5

This year the National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) has published a new version of the “Four Questions” traditionally recited at the Passover seder. Instead of commemorating the liberation of the Jews from Egypt, the NJDC has chosen to take this opportunity to hail, what they see as, the achievements of President Barack Obama.

As Commentary Magazine’s Jonathan Tobin poignantly notes, “One of the most disturbing aspects of modern American Jewish life is the almost obsessive desire of many Jews to universalize every aspect of Jewish belief while downplaying the original meanings of customs and ritual.”

Following a video of President Obama’s Passover greetings, the NJDC states, “As Jews in the United States and around the world gather together to celebrate Passover, it is important that we reflect on the blessings and freedoms that we have as Jews living in a free society. One of those blessings is that we have a President deeply committed to the safety and security of Israel, and the welfare of all Americans—including the needy among us.”

They then go on to list their new version of the ‘Four Questions,’ which include: “Why has President Obama provided record amounts of military aid to Israel?”; “Why has President Obama worked so hard and succeeded at uniting the world against Iran’s illicit nuclear weapons program?”; “Why has President Obama achieved the historic passage of ‘Obamacare’”?; and, “Why has President Obama fought to strengthen Medicare and Medicaid?”

They claim that the “answers to all of these questions are: President Obama cares deeply about the safety and security of the Jewish state. He has been Israel’s leading advocate from day one and has done more than any other President to meaningfully bolster its defenses and provide for its future. He also cares deeply about the welfare of all....”

Pharaoh Obama is the 11th Plague.

A president doesn't do it alone. He is helped by his party from ALL over the country and is helped by the MILLIONS who voted for him. He's even helped by the GOP who go along with some of his ideas...

God help us.

That's quite true of course. But this time, we need to stop voluntarily helping to build their pyramid (schemes) for them, even if Moses fails to appear.

In November, Obama will be gonif the American people come to their senses.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the construct a copy of Solomon’s Temple with a pair of Obama’s used underwear in the “Holy of Holies”. They have chosen their god and it isn’t Jehovah...

With deep sadness, I have come to the conclusion that the Republican party would rather have Obama in than someone that would REALLY put an end to corporate welfare and the DC gravy train.

Obama is far less frightening, than, say, a Palin or a Paul or ANYONE that would say the government (you and I, the taxpayer) should stop financing connected people’s wealth.

I can do it too!

See:

The first plague of blood - Obama’s refusal to really stop participlating in the Middle East Wars (in fact, by destablizing Egypt and Libya, he’s causing more bloodshed than every before)

The 2nd plague of frogs. -I’m going to be mean here and just mention Michelle, Sonia, Elena, and Hillary. (For their loud, irritating croaking.)

The 3rd plague of gnats and lice - the MSM, for their chewing away at America’s foundation with their love affair for this radical.

The 4th plague of flies - Jesse Jackson, Sharpton, and the racebaiters, for their rapid flight to the carrion.

The 5th plague of diseased livestock - The destruction he has wrought to our industry, including cash for clunkers.

The 6th plague of Boils - The “Affordable Healthcare Act”, of course. The damage he has done to our health is incalculable. Already. Ask any elderly person who recently has had their therapy cut off.

The 7th plague of Thunder and Hail - the hatred coming out of the left towards people of Faith.

The 8th plague of Locusts - inflation, destroying the storehouse of people’s lives. And anyone that tells you it isn’t purposeful has total blinders.

The 9th plague of darkness - Obama’s war on our energy supply, of course.

The 10th plague of the death of the firstborn - Dr Death, Obama, marches on to destroy as many lives as he can through abortion.

You know, I need more plagues. There wasn’t one for the destruction of our allies, of Israel, the scorn he has set us up for throughout the world, his power hungry czars, his runs around the Constitution, etc - he’s worse than Egypt. And mine are Far more based in fact than these fantastical “Four questions” are.

Does Obama qualify more as a putz, a schmo, a schlemiel, a schlimazel or a schmendrick? Or all of the above?

I’m surprised those Obama-worshiping, Leftists at the NJDC didn’t ask, “Why is this Mashiach different from all other Mashiachs?”

A schlemiel is the traveler who spills his coffee on a fellow passenger. A schlimazel is the fellow he spills it on.
Obama is the schlemiel. America is the schlimazel.

But each plague was, according to one sage, comprised of four totalling forty, and according to another was comprised of five, totalling fifty, and at the Red Sea there were thus 200 plagues according to the first opinion, and 250 according to the second. Follow the sage of your choice and go on to list Plage 1a, 1b, 1c, etc.

So the real 11th plague is the terminal stupidity that infects the electorate. Obama may or may not be gone on 20/1/13, but the plague will still be there, even if in remission.

Or how about: “why is this idol different than all idols we worship? For all the other idols, we don’t dip into our pockets even once, but for this idol, we dip at least twice. For all the other idols, we get what we get, but for this idol, we get flattened like matza. For all the other idols, we promote other green projects, for this idol, only the projects that embitter the taxpayers. For all other idols, we either sit up as if we’re moderates or lean to the left, but for this idol we must only lean to the left.”

I’m on a roll tonight. Here’s more:

“We were slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt with universal health coverage and fleshpots, leeks and garlic and fish that we ate for free, and everything. But then that mean-spirited interloper Moses came and stirred up trouble, and took us out in the dessert for forty years because a Bush told him to draw us into his risky schemes. Afraid of people who are different than us, we allowed him to bring plagues down on the heads of those piece-loving African sun people, and clung to our spears and Bibles in our indifference to those less fortunate than ourselves as we joined the unemployed and relocated to the aforementioned dessert without an extra six months of unemployment benefits. Then Moses used a cheap ventriloquist trick to make us think that some Supreme Being was talking to us from a mountain, and we murdered three thousand innocent golden calf worshipers and the indigenous Amalekites we met on the way...”

'Fraid so.
What is MORE scary is that THIS country is the best in the whole world. Imagine living in some third world sewer. WE are the lucky ones, not smart, necessarily, but lucky.

True. You don't have to look very deep into the Dem strategy of frightening people (elder, welfare, etc.) to see how well scare tactics do work.
I used to sneer at the Dem strategy of taxing the wealthy COMING FROM Dems like the Kennedys. THEIR wealth, OF COURSE, like other wealthy Dems, would somehow be protected.

I think the GOP would love a Republican Obama. Santorum is gone now and I know I can't vote for Bishop Romney, future leader of some distant planet. How can I vote for ANY person who believes that kind of garbage?

The ironic thing is that some of those less fortunate third world countries have rulers who acknowledge G-d's laws and oppose homosexual "marriage."

Yes, they do. It is ironic.
I sometimes believe that WE Americans think we know all the answers and that OUR system of government is the best for everyone ELSE.
I don't think our system of government WOULD work for some of those "less fortunate third world countries" OR those oil-rich countries whose cultures are sometimes called "backward" by us--not me or thee necessarily, but by others.

When Moses split the ocean, it caused untold environmental damage, and for forty years we were fed nothing but high carbohydrate manna which was artificially flavored to taste like anything we wanted, except for leeks and onions. Then we entered the land of Canaan by splitting a river, causing even more environmental damage, and annihilated all the indigenous inhabitants, destroying their rich culture of Baal worship, bisexual orgies, and human sacrifice.

If he didn’t take us out of Egypt, it would have been enough for us.
If he had to take us out of Egypt, but at least didn’t confiscate the Egyptians’ money, it would have been enough for us.
If he had to confiscate the Egyptians’ money, but at least didn’t split the ocean, it would have....

If this is the face of modern American Judaism, it may be time to rethink religion. Although, if my father-in-law’s Chasidic sister is any indicator of that part of the religion’s feelings towards the Kenyan interloper, we may have hope. What she says about nObama makes some of the FReepers here sound mild! Then again, she and her family barely escaped the Nazis in ‘37, and her husband has the tatoo on his arm to show that he was one of the fortunate survivors, so they have first-hand knowledge of this stuff.
