22.07.2015 A few days from now is Tish'a b'Av, the saddest day on the Jewish calendar. Many catastrophes befell the Jews on that day, the Ninth of Av, including the destruction of the two temples in Jerusalem. Each of these tragedies, by itself, could have led to the disappearance of Judaism. But none did. Why? What made the Jews survive as a distinct people, when so many other civilizations have disappeared? [captions available -- click on "cc"]
21.07.2015 A new version of martial arts is being taught to and practiced by Orthodox Jews in Brooklyn. CBS2’s Scott Rapoport talked to a man who has been called the “most dangerous Jew in NYC” — Although you wouldn’t know it by looking at him. Former NYC probation officers and Washington Heights native Steve Isaak, 67, has developed a personalized style of martial arts called Shima Juijitsu. He’s been teaching it for more than 40 years to a devoted following of the city’s most observant, Orthodox Jews, in a Brighton Beach studio. Part of his mission is for it to be self-defense from anti-semetism. “Everyone need self-defense but they need it more than most, based on the history of Jewish people,” Isaak said. His students come in all shapes, sizes, ages and sexes. There are women, too, who want to learn to defend themselves — like Chavi Charlap. And what does she get from the class? “I get confidence,” Charlap replied. Because they are Orthodox, the women train separately from the men. And though touching is traditionally verboten, some of his female students permit it during training, saying Isaak’s classes are conducted with respect to their Orthodox values. “If I’m in a life threatening situation and because of this I can save my life and other lives then it’s definitely worth it,” Charlap said. Isaak turned to martial arts as a young, 12-year-old boy after he says he was beaten up by two older kids. By the time he got to college, he was teaching self-defense. He opened his own martial arts school shortly after that. Isaak says the secret and power of Shima Juijitsu is that you don’t have to be athletic or powerful. That it is based on efficiency, not strength, Rapoport reported. The cerebral Sensai says he teaches his students a series of moves that can deflect and derail an attacker. His student Rabbi David Goldshyn with the Jewish Center Of Brighton Beach says it’s effective and necessary. “You don’t want to get into a fight every two seconds,” Goldshyn said. “But you also want to have the confidence that if something happens you can protect yourself.” Through the years, Isaak says he’s taught Shima Juijitsu to cops, prosecutors, judges and even some in Israel’s defense forces. Isaak says he now now lives in Myrtle Beach, but comes back to Brighton Beach every two weeks for 5 days at a time to teach his Orthodox students. He says his students demand it.

21.07.2015 “Le retour du peuple juif sur sa terre est un premier niveau de Teshuva collective de la nation” (Rav Kook, “les lueurs du retour” 27,2) Habiter en Israel, y travailler la terre, risquer sa vie dans l’armée de défense du pays, revenir à sa propre culture et se détacher des influences négatives de l’exil, peuvent être également un prélude de Teshuva. Tout n’est pas parfait, mais peut constituer un sacré commencement! Dieu n’abandonnera jamais son peuple : Son alliance est un mariage pour l’éternité. La nation sera finalement purifiée et réhabilitée et l’éternité d’Israël jamais démentie.

King David Hotel bombing From Wikipedia, The King David Hotel bombing was an terrorist attack carried out on Monday July 22, 1946 by the militant Zionist underground organization, the Irgun, on the British administrative headquarters for Palestine, which was housed in the southern wing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem. 91 people of various nationalities were killed and 46 were injured. The hotel was the site of the central offices of the British Mandatory authorities of Palestine, principally the Secretariat of the Government of Palestine and the Headquarters of the British Armed Forces in Palestine and Transjordan. The attack initially had the approval of the Haganah (the principal Jewish paramilitary group in Palestine). It was conceived as a response to Operation Agatha (a series of widespread raids, including one on the Jewish Agency, conducted by the British authorities) and was the deadliest directed at the British during the Mandate era (1920–1948) Photo by Wikipedia read more... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_David_Hotel_bombing
The King David Hotel bombing (July 22, 1946) was a bomb attack against the British Mandate government of Palestine and its armed forces by members of the Irgun, a militant Zionist organization, which was led at the time by Menachem Begin, a future Prime Minister of Israel. Members of the Irgun, commanded by Yosef Avni and Yisrael Levi  and dressed as 'Arabs' and as the Hotel's distinctive Sudanese waiters, planted a bomb in the basement of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, part of which was being used as the base for the Mandate Secretariat, the British military headquarters and a branch of the police Criminal Investigation Division. The ensuing explosion caused the collapse of the south-western corner of the southern wing of the hotel. 91 people were killed, most of them staff of the secretariat and the hotel: 28 British, 41 Arab, 17 Jewish, and 5 others. Around 45 people were injured. Some of the deaths and injuries occurred in the road outside the hotel and in adjacent buildings. The attack on the hotel was the deadliest attack against the British in the history of the Mandate and is often credited as being a major factor in the British decision to relinquish the Mandate. If classed as terrorism, the attack was the most cowardly & deadliest of that kind anywhere in the world. Prime Minister Clement Attlee commented on the attack to the House of Commons: Hon. Members will have learned with horror of the brutal and murderous crime committed yesterday in Jerusalem. Of all the outrages which have occurred in Palestine against the Arabs, and they have been many and horrible in the last few months, this is the worst. By this insane act of terrorism 93 innocent people have been killed or are missing in the ruins. The latest figures of casualties are 41 dead, 52 missing and 53 injured. I have no further information at present beyond what is contained in the following official report received from Jerusalem: "It appears that after exploding a bomb in the street, presumably as a diversionary measure — this did virtually no damage — a lorry drove up to the tradesmen's entrance of the King David Hotel and the occupants, after holding up the staff at pistol point, entered the kitchen premises carrying a number of milk cans. At some stage of the proceedings, they shot and seriously wounded a British soldier who attempted to interfere with them. All available information so far is to the effect that they were Jews. Somewhere in the basement of the hotel they planted bombs which went off shortly afterwards. They appear to have made good their escape." The Zionist Irgun issued an initial statement accepting responsibility for the attack, blaming the British for the deaths due to failure to respond to the warning and mourning only the Jewish victims. A year later, on July 22, 1947, they issued a new statement saying that they were acting on instructions from "a letter from the headquarters of the United Resistance, demanding that we carry out an attack on the British at the King David Hotel as soon as possible." In July 2006, Israelis including former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and former members of Irgun attended a 60th anniversary celebration of the bombing, which was organized by the Menachem Begin Centre. The British Ambassador in Tel Aviv and the Consul-General in Jerusalem dissented, saying "We do not think that it is right for an act of terrorism, which led to the loss of so many lives, to be commemorated." They also protested against an Israeli plaque that claims that people died because the British ignored warning calls, saying it was untrue and "did not absolve those who planted the bomb." The plaque read "For reasons known only to the British, the hotel was not evacuated." City officials agreed to amend the wording on the plaque?
