The Shamrak Report produced by
Steven Shamrak is a 'Pro-Israel' report that brings together various
pieces of news from a variety of sources to demonstrate the inherent
racism involved in the politics of the Middle East. (Comments in brackets are made by Steven Shamrak)
Pesach and Hanukkah, Purim is the third major Zionist holiday. It is
not just about the readings of the Book of Esther. It teaches us that
when united and determined Jews can defeat any enemies, even living as a
minority in hostile exile. Our spiritual and political leaders need to
learn this lesson in order to make progress in uniting Jewish people and
Purim Message from a Holocaust Survivor
by Solly Ganor
when we are under threat of annihilation from the same old country of
Persia, Iran, we should tell the story again! Do we need an Esther
Hamalkah and Mordechai to come and save us from the new Haman? Perhaps
our Prime Minister Bibi Nathanyau will dress up like Esther Hamalka and
our defence minister Ehud Barak as Mordechai. The two of them are all
fired up to preempt and strike. After all we did it already twice: Once
in Iraq and the second time in Syria without any dire consequences.
Sadam Hussein, who threatened to burn Israel to the ground, if he had
A-bomb he wouldn't have hesitated to use it against us.
Rules of War!
(from a list of the 613 Mitzvot)
before the War of Independence enemies of Jewish people were conducting
genocidal war against Jews in Europe and Palestine! Israel is still
fighting this war!
That those engaged in warfare shall not fear their enemies nor be panic-stricken by them during battle (Deut. 3:22, 7:21, 20:3).
To anoint a special kohein (to speak to the soldiers) in a war (Deut. 20:2).
Not to destroy fruit trees (wantonly or in warfare) (Deut. 20:19-20).
a permissive war (as distinguished from obligatory ones), to observe
the procedure prescribed in the Torah (Deut. 20:10 - "When thou drawest
nigh unto a city to fight against it, then proclaim peace unto it.")
Not to degrade a beautiful woman (taken captive in war) to the condition of a bondwoman (Deut. 21:14).
Always to remember what Amalek did (Deut. 25:17).
That the evil done to us by Amalek shall not be forgotten (Deut. 25:19).
To destroy the seed of Amalek (Deut. 25:19).
laws of Torah stated it clearly - Jews can forgive and make peace with
enemies who want peace, but not with murderous and unrepentant haters of
Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak
- There are many mitzvahs, commandments, in Judaism. Two of them
direct us to live a happy and purposeful life. Unfortunately, most
branches of Judaism mainly promote tzdoka, donation. There are other
important mitzvahs - Jewish unity and re-unification of the Jewish land,
as Jews of all political affiliations used to sing "Eretz-Israel on
both side of Jordan river" are imperative for Jewish survival!
Israelis are Leading Innovators of Water Technology
advances water solutions for the global market. The projects include
500 water schemes in Rumania, preventing water leakage in Moscow,
irrigating sugar cane plantations in South Africa, recycling wastewater
at the Beijing Olympics, fish farm hydroponics in Turkey and
desalination in Cyprus. So the great news is that Israel will have
surplus water within a decade. Even by the end of next year , 75% of
Israeli households will be using desalinated water.
Israel is Good Investment
under threat of war from its neighbors since being founded in 1948,
produced better risk-adjusted returns than all other developed stock
markets in the past decade as the technology-driven economy attracted
global investors. The Israeli gauge returned 161 percent including
dividends over the last decade, the third-best performance among
developed markets after Norway's OBX Index and the Hang Seng.
Arab MKs Deliberately Spread Dangerous Libel
two lawmakers, both of whom draw salaries supported by Israeli
taxpayers, are listed as representatives of 'Palestine' at the
International Conference for Defence of Jerusalem in Qatar. Both
Israeli-Arab MKs made statements to the Qatari media claiming that
Israel is an occupying power in the holy city. El-Sana warned that
Israel is threatening the existence of the al-Aqsa mosque, located in
Jerusalem's Old City .
- (Israel is the only country which gives employment to mortal enemies! Isn't it time to have self-respect?)
Israeli Scientists Discover 'Life Gene'
researchers from Hadassah Medical Center have discovered a gene that
increases the lifespan of mice, and may do the same for humans.
Moreover, the scientists discovered a rise in life expectancy among
males, based on calorie restriction.
Why does the UN Keep Them Hidden?
believe access to long-forgotten UN World War II archive could shine
new light on the Holocaust and bring modern-day war criminals to
account. Locked inside UN headquarters is a huge but largely unknown
archive documenting 10,000 cases against accused World War II criminals.
"It's outrageous that material which could help bring today's war
criminals to justice and improve our understanding of the Holocaust is
still secret," said British academic Dr. Dan Plesch.
- (The UN, called the League of Nations at the time, like the Red
Cross, was the main Genocide Facilitator of the Holocaust. Ugly Nothing
did nothing when China occupied Tibet, and when Pol Pot killed millions
of his own people. It then appointed Koffi Annan, facilitator of
genocide in Rwandan, its General Secretary!)
Welcome to the 'Spring' - No Apology Necessary?
furious mob has desecrated dozens of Commonwealth War Graves in a
Libyan cemetery amid continuing fury in the Middle East over the
(alleged) burning of the Koran by US soldiers. Headstones commemorating
British and Allied servicemen, killed during World War II campaigns in
the Western Desert, lay smashed and strewn across Benghazi Military
Israel could End Iranian Nuclear Development for Years
leading European analyst has determined that Israel could destroy
Iran's nuclear weapons infrastructure. A former senior German defence
official has asserted that the Israel Air Force was capable of
destroying key Iran's nuclear facilities within hours. Hans Ruhle,
planning director of the German Defence Ministry from 1982 to 1988, said
Israel could torpedo Iranian nuclear weapons development for years by
bombing only six of up to 30 Iranian sites.
- (The problem is not with Teheran, but Washington. US governments
have been restricting Israels right to defeat her enemies, using
political and economic blackmail, since the inception of the Jewish
'Useless Nothing' is at Its Best
governments of Venezuelas Hugo Chavez and Pakistan are slated to run
unopposed for seats on the UNs 47-nation Human Rights Council this year.
"These are hypocritical candidacies. Chavez throws judges and critics
in jail, bullies young student activists and uses his UN vote to shield
the atrocities of others," said Hillel Neuer, executive director of the
Geneva-based UN Watch.
Arab Supreme Court Judge Refused to Sing Anthem
Arab judge of Israel's Supreme Court caused an outrage when he refused
to sing Israel's national anthem. "There are citizens who demand rights
and government positions, but who scorn their national obligations with
insolence and arrogance... Whoever does not like the national anthem
should find a country with a suitable anthem and go there" said MK
Michael Ben-Ari (National Union).
Even 'Peace Now' Fed up With Arab Officials?
for Peace Now's Director of Policy and Government Relations, Lara
Friedman, has expressed her discontent and dissatisfaction with the
failure of Arab officials to acknowledge Jewish rights to Jerusalem.
"This is a serious problem," Friedman proclaimed. "If President Abbas
cannot acknowledge Jewish claims in Jerusalem, he should not be
surprised if it is more difficult for Israelis and Jews, wherever they
are, to believe that he can be trusted in a peace agreement that leaves
Jerusalem sites precious to Jews under Palestinian control."
- (More and more delusional Jews are coming to the realisation that
Arabs do not want peace with Israel, but destruction of the Jewish
Fake Integrity Failed Again
The French Constitutional Council struck down a draft law that would have criminalised the denial of the genocide of 1.5 million of Armenians by the Ottoman Turks, legislation that has soured relations between France and Turkey.
Despicable Attempt at Spiritual Genocide
Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl was baptized into The Church
of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints nearly a decade after his death.
Pearl, who was Jewish, was killed by terrorists in Pakistan in 2002
after being kidnapped. The practice of posthumous baptisms intends to
provide members of other religions a (unsolicited) chance at (Christian)
salvation after their deaths. In 1995, it said it would stop baptizing

Quote of the Week:
When will the Western leaders learn
that Islamists, and Arabs in general, consider an apology as weakness?
It only inspires more Islamic violence and terror!
- "Look, you apologize when you've done something wrong and you want
to make amends. You don't apologize when someone makes you admit to a
mistake that you haven't made, and in fact, in this case incites the
people to do some of these things, because they think the apology is an
admission of wrongdoing."
- - John Bolton, former US ambassador to the United Nations - An angry mob is an effective terror weapon of Islam!
Wishful Thinking or Plain Stupidity?
Isaac Herzog, member of Foreign Affairs and Defence Committee, said
that the Syrian opposition want to "be friends" with Israel. He refused
to name his sources because he said they fear retribution by Assad. He
said they are aligned with the main rebel factions. (Why are so many
Jews always eager and ready to be fooled and used by Israel's enemies?)
The opposition Syrian National Council is willing to work with
Hezbollah, the council's leader said Wednesday, provided the extremist
group does not interfere with democratic change in Syria.
- (They say "democracy", but scream "All'hu Akbar"! There is not
united Syrian opposition, just some gangs of Islamic thugs. Do we really
need to replace another Arab egomaniac dictator by a lawless Islamic
