Obama Manages To Bring Racism Into His Official Statement Marking Passover…

The bridge he talks about Civil Rights leaders marching across into the “Promised Land” in his Passover statement just happens to be the one featured in the White House Twitter feed(and out of which he cut George W. Bush who was walking on the right hand side):

Statement from the President on Passover

Michelle and I send our warmest greetings to all those celebrating Passover in the United States, in the State of Israel, and throughout the world.

Tonight, for the seventh year, I’ll hold a Seder in the White House, and we’ll join millions of Jewish families as we retell one of humanity’s great stories of liberation. The Exodus was neither easy nor quick. The Israelites’ journey to freedom required them to choose faith over fear and courage over complacency. Above all, it required the works of an awesome God, who led them out of bondage with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm.

The story of the Exodus – the signs and wonders that appeared when hope seemed lost, the Jewish people’s abiding belief that they would one day reach the Promised Land – has inspired countless generations over the years. It inspired Jewish families to hold fast to their faith, even during times of terrible persecution. It inspired young Civil Rights leaders as they marched across an Alabama bridge in search of their own Promised Land, half a century ago.

And it continues to inspire us today. Tonight, my family will read the passage of the Haggadah that declares we must see ourselves as though we personally were liberated from Egypt. The Exodus reminds us that progress has always come slow and the future has always been uncertain, but it also reminds there is always reason for hope.

Like the Israelites who Moses led out of slavery long ago, it is up to us to never lose faith in the better day that lies ahead. In our own country, we can continue our march toward a more perfect union. Around the world, we can seek to extend the miracles of freedom and peace, prosperity and security, to more of God’s creation. And together, we can continue the hard but awesome work of tikkun olam, and do our part to repair the world.

He has to continue acting like he cares for the blacks. They’ve been used up and thrown away, and they don’t even know it.

The phrase “Tikkun Olam” literally means “world repair.” It is commonly used to refer to the pursuit of social action and social justice. However, few realize that the phrase and the concept behind it originate in kabbalah, in the teachings of the 16th century mystic Isaac Luria.

How nice that Obama would associate the garbage of a mystic with God’s plan for the world. It is written in God’s holy word and it will happen only as God has told us.

we can seek to extend

At heart every liberal is a tyrant. Worse, it's no miracle. Just get government out of the way. Wherever you find government you lose liberty and the innovation that comes with it.

With the tikkun olam, every liberal thinks they're our Savior. I wish they'd stop repairing the world so much.

Don’t blame Arizal for Hussein Obama.

As for kabbalah, there is “kabbalah” and there is the modern misuse of kabbalah. If your exposure is that it is occultic or somehow related to Madonna, then you really don’t know much about it.

“Kabbalah” simply means “received.” Anyone who thinks the Bible is a sacred book, accepts that it is “received revelation.”

Obama is playing out the role of the modern day Pharaoh in siding with Iran against Isreal.

Sounds to me like he’s keeping the atheistic Jews out of trouble with the religious Jews, by patronizing religious Jews (Don’t you know they’ve been getting some flak for supporting his deadly policies and anti-Semitic culture).

This way, the atheistic Jews could say to the religious Jews, “See, he really doesn’t intend to destroy Israel and our relatives and start WWIII and destroy the USA’s exceptionalism...it is not so bad we support him and his atheistic Marxist political party, they’re still our allies.”

Yes, the atheistic are in truth just dead nothings, it is plain to see. Just take a look at atheist Jews George Soros or Saul Alinsky or how about atheist Americans Clarence Darrow or Jesse Ventura for God’s sake. Of course they don’t, by themselves’, make the case, but they are fine examples of just what atheists are capable of believing...just about anything that gets them noticed and nothing that really means anything in the grand scheme of things.

What do atheists believe? Just about anything their little wandering hearts desire and I do mean little.

...Interestingly, the Reform trajectory is almost indistinguishable from that of liberal Protestant denominations, which also jettisoned Tradition for Good Works in the name of a G-d Who reinvented Himself as “Love”...

...The problem isn’t so much that Mayor Bloomberg’s [or Obama’s] usage differs from the way centuries of Jews understood it, but that his understanding is the polar opposite of what the phrase always meant.

Let’s start with the a familiar phrase from davening “to perfect the universe through Hashem’s sovereignty”, with the emphasis on “through.” Klal Yisrael understood that no amount of human effort or enterprise will ever cure the world of its flaws and faults.

This does not devalue every small contribution to making life a bit better for an individual, a community, or a continent. It does mean that all such efforts are band-aids relative to the big fix, which is bringing the Shechinah closer to the world.

Perhaps it is not inaccurate to suggest that to a serious Reform Jew, one brings Hashem closer to the world by making it a better place; to a traditional Jew, bringing Hashem closer is what will make the world the place He and we want it to be...

Uh-huh. Suuuuuuuure they will.

Like the Israelites who Moses led out of slavery long ago

Whoops, Baraq. Feminists claim that it wasn't Moses, but his sister Miriam, who is the real force behind the Exodus. Politically incorrect.

And candles. Safed in Galilee is a very cool little town. In Israel it is known as “Tzfat” so you know I like it.
