PA leaders celebrate American deaths in Iraq

The only thing that's dumber than America supporting the PLO is Israel supporting the PLO. That said, Bush and company's continued diplomatic, financial and military assistance to these filthy, despicable insects is beyond the pale.

JERUSALEM – Members of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah militias are celebrating a suicide car bombing that killed nine U.S. soldiers in Iraq earlier this week, stating the attack bolsters their belief the U.S. will soon be defeated and retreat from "Muslim lands."

"It was a very happy day for us Palestinians to hear nine American dogs were killed in Iraq. We feel encouraged and we feel great solidarity with our brothers in Iraq, and we consider this heroic operation, which aims to humiliate the Americans, as proof that the will of the our resistance is more powerful than any [big] American war airplanes," Abu Ahmed, the northern Gaza commander of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror group, said in a WND interview today.

The Brigades is the declared military wing of Abbas' U.S.-backed Fatah party, which American policy largely considers moderate.

America, of all nations, should be leading the charge to have these terrorist vermin crushed, not propped up to power and offered the keys to Jerusalem. This world is completely upside down.

Ishmail Ax a moslem? Media cover-up exposed

It's looking more and more like the media and police really are covering up that Cho was a moslem and the murders an act of islamic terror.

Hat tip: TMW

Christian Worldview Network - ... I also spoke this morning, right after this meeting with a peace officer here in Virginia who had access too and has read some of the transcripts of the other ten videos that are not being shown on the news. The shooter (Cho) was quoting verses from the Koran and had Ishmael written on his arm and as his return address on the package sent to NBC. It appears that he did not randomly pick his targets but rather chose classes that had high concentrations of Christians and Jews in them-he was targeting Christians and Jews!!!!!

This may never come out in the media and some may tend to disregard this but my source is a solid believer and a trustworthy officer who has personally read some of the transcripts. What adds to this is that the press is not mentioning that a very high percentage of the victims were believers. The names of the victims can be misleading and don't indicate who they really are!

The speaker's account is not officially accepted as material fact yet, so read it with an open mind. Still, I think there is enough reason to believe he is being honest, especially in light of the media's historic whitewashing and apologizing for islam, to at least consider it being the truth. I know I am.

Summation of Ismail Ax connection with islam

The media has completely shut down reporting of connections with Seung Cho Hui, the Va Tech killer, and Ismail Ax. The silence is deafening, and very conspicuous, so here's a final summary of ties between the killer and Islam for your personal consumption.

Hat Tip: Free Republic

1. Cho’s father lived in Saudi Arabia as a young, single man. His sister works for a State Department contractor which oversees billions of dollars of aid for Iraq. Previously, she worked in Bangkok.

2. Both of Cho’s plays are about sexual abuse. Bangkok is a city famous for its sex trade, which caters especially to Muslim businessmen.

3. Cho’s rampage was on Holocaust Remembrance day. Although probably a happenstance, one of the professors he killed was a Jewish holocaust survivor.

4. Cho used the pseudonym Ismael Ax. Ismael (or, Ismail) is the son of Abraham who became the ancestor of all Arabs, as opposed to Israel who became ancestor of all Jews. Although there are many Western references to this person, and many literary characters named “Ishmael,” that spelling is Hebraic. “Ismael” or “Ismail” is uniquely Arabic. Ismaili is also a branch of Shiite Islam.

5. In each play, Cho’s characters rant about the horrible decadence of American life. Targets include McDonalds, the Roman Catholic church, Michael Jackson and the NFL.

6. Cho is from Fairfax County, Virginia. This is also the home of 1 in 8 Virginians, but it is also the home of Yong Ki Kwon, a 29-year-old graduate of Virginia Tech, who, like Cho, is also from South Korea. Kwon was convicted of terrorism, one of the so-called “paintball Jihadis,” who practiced massacres with paintball guns.

Draw your own conclusions, but for me the answer is clear: he was inspired by islam, pure and simple.


Hamas attacks Israel on Yom Hatzmaut

As Israel celebrates the 59th year of her modern independence today, they were reminded of how fragile their future really is as Hamas declared the bogus "ceasefire" over and fired a barrage or mortar and rockets into Israel from northern Gaza launchpads where Jewish homes used to stand.

Ynet News - Hamas gunmen fired a barrage of rockets and mortar shells at Israel from the northern Gaza Strip on Tuesday morning, security officials said.

Hamas's military wing, the Izz el-Din al-Qassam Brigades, claimed responsibility for the attack, saying that a five-month ceasefire with Israel along the Gaza border "no longer exists," the French news agency AFP reported. A statement issued by the brigades in Gaza City said the attack was in response to "Israel's crimes in the West Bank."

The army and the police said ten Qassam rockets and over a dozen mortar shells landed in open fields in the western Negev.

No injuries were reported but police said damage to property has been reported by residents of an unidentified community. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert consulted a number of his military advisors about a possible response to the attack.

A Qassam rocket hit a house in the southern city of Sderot on Saturday evening, leaving six people in need of treatment for shock. Two other rockets landed in open fields outside the city.

It's safe to say Olmert will respond as he always does, declaring Israel will offer more "far-reaching, painful concessions" to the vermin in an effort to promote peace. His being the Prime Minister is the very embodiment of what is wrong with Israel

Sheryl Crow's cure for global warming: Stop wiping your ass!

(Sheryl Crow showing us how to save the trees)

OK, I don't normally post on matters relating to the entertainment industry, but this story is just priceless:

Worldnet Daily - Singer Sheryl Crow, fresh from a confrontation with Karl Rove at the White House Press Correspondents Dinner, has some unique ideas about saving the planet from "global warming."

In a blog chronicling her thoughts during a college tour with Laurie David, producer of Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth," she suggests "a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting."

"Now, I don't want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where 2 to 3 could be required," she writes.

OK, America, it's time to take Sheryl's advice so we can save the planet. I am so thankful to know that we can make the earth cleaner simply by keeping our asses dirty. Where would we be without liberal celebrities proposing such critical legislation?

PA rockets destroy Sderot home

The arab filth of New Judenrein Gaza again launched Kassam rockets into the Green Line town of Sderot - for about the 7 millionth time since Ehud and Ariel ethnically cleansed the Jews from Gaza to "bring peace" - and this time they directly nailed a Jewish home, smashing it to a pile of rubble. Thank God, the rocket hit the opposite side of the house from where the family was gathered so nobody was killed in the blast.

( Palestinian Authority terrorists in Gaza fired four rockets into the Negev city of Sderot Saturday evening, injuring two people lightly. Six members of a single family were treated by emergency services for shock, after one of the rockets slammed into their home, causing extensive damage.

A Magen David Adom (MDA) first response unit reported that the two physically injured civilians were evacuated to Ashkelon's Barzilai Hospital. Itzik Alfasi, of MDA, told Arutz Sheva Radio that the family whose house was struck was miraculously spared, as the rocket demolished the western side of the house at a moment when the entire family was on the eastern side.

Of course, this occurs just two days after Ehud Olmert met with Holocaust denier Mahmoud Abbas on Holocaust Remembrance Day, promising the vermin gifts of weapons and money so that they will be able to more efficiently murder Jews.

Honestly, how is it possible that Israeli's are still willing to put up with this guy? Why aren't there protests by millions of Jews all over Israel demanding his immediate resignation after all the corruption and cowardice and Jewish lives needlessly lost to islamic turd chunks? How are the Israelis not demonstrating outside the Knesset, barricading Olmert from entering the building and rioting accross the country?

The apathy of the average Israeli is mind-boggling to me. Liberalism has simply killed Zionism.

Harry Reid: "This war is lost"

Has there ever been a time when the Senate majority leader pronounced America's defeat in war while we are still engaged in battle? This can't be good for anybody.

Newsmax - U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said on Thursday he told President George W. Bush the Iraq war was lost and the recent U.S. troop increase had accomplished nothing.

Reid, the Senate's top Democrat, described part of a meeting with Bush at the White House on Wednesday - the same day bombs killed almost 200 people in Baghdad in the worst day of violence since a U.S.-backed security crackdown was launched there earlier this year.

"This is the message I took to the president," Reid said at a news conference.

"Now I believe myself . . . that this war is lost, and that the surge is not accomplishing anything, as indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq yesterday," said Reid, of Nevada.

In one way, Reid is actually right. Bush's failure to address the real enemy, islam, instead of his safe war against a specific regime, has created a no-win situation. Still, it is treasonous for Reid to come out in the media and proclaim America's defeat. What should be done is nothing short of total annihilation of the moslem infrastructure, and iron-fisted Marshall Law outlawing the practice of islam in public. Since that won't happen, an untenable war will continue with false pretenses and a hidden agenda to defeat islam with democracy promotion and "hearts and minds" policies that will never, ever work.

ISMAEL AX the VT killer! Media cover-up in effect

This just in from Fox News: the VA TECH KILLER, Cho Seung Hui, LOOKS TO BE A MOSLEM AS I SAID ALL ALONG!! In his suicide note, where he complained about rich kids and debauchery, he signed his name ISMAEL AX!!! The terrorist organization of islam is culpable for this crime and I will immediately begin demanding that our lawmakers declare islam to be a TERRORIST ORGANIZATION!

More to come...

UPDATE - 4/18/07, 2:06pm:

According to the Washington Post, Ismail Ax was not written in ink on Cho's arm: IT WAS TATTOOED! This takes the connection to a much deeper level. Here is one explanation of the meaning in a verse from the Koran. Hat tip: Bangkokker blog:

After making sure that nobody was left in town, Ibrahim went towards the temple armed with an ax. Statues of all shapes and sizes were sitting there adorned with decorations. Plates of food were offered to them, but the food was untouched. "Well, why don't you eat? The food is getting cold." He said to the statues, joking; then with his ax he destroyed all the statues except one, the biggest of them. He hung the ax around its neck and left.
--The Koran

Now,according to the Koran it was Ismail, not Isaac, who was to be sacrificed by Abraham (Ibrahim in Arabic) with an ax (according to islam), and it was through Ismail, not Isaac, that the covenant from God was passed, and eventually given to mankind through mohammed in what the vermin call the koran.

Also, here is the psychopathic play that Cho Seung Hui wrote in his English class that got him referred to a councilor. There are many in the blogoshpere who have surmised that the hostile references to pork eating and the violent hitting with a shoe are possible references to islam. Personally, I think that is vague and maybe a reach, but it is worth noting that the buzz on the blogoshpere is red hot with suspicion that Cho was indeed influenced by islam.

I also suspect that Ismail Ax could be a play on Malcom X, the violent Nation of Islam leader from the 1960's.


4/19/07 UPDATE: As of 11:06am there has STILL been not a single mention on the news anywhere about what Ismail Ax might have to do with the killer. With every passing hour the likelihood of this being a mass cover-up rises exponentially. Of course, what would they be covering up you ask? You pick it.

1. The media doesn't want to discuss the story of Moby Dick because they are afraid of all the penis jokes that would follow.

2. The media doesn't want to reveal that it has to do with the novel "The Prarie" because they are afraid people will start reading books instead of watching the news.

3. Ismail Ax has to do with Cho being inspired by islam and the media is afraid of the moslems.

This is a toughy, huh?


UPDATE: 1:10pm, 4.19.07

Fox news has a worthless talking head on now, Pat Brown criminal profiler, who says Ismail Ax could be either a Jewish or moslem reference and we don't know which version Cho was thinking about when he took the name.

No, I'm not joking...she really said this!

Wait, there's more. She then added that there is "NO RELIGIOUS CONNECTION WHATSOEVER"! How does she know this? Why does she come to this conclusion? Because she JUST KNOWS, that's why.

Unbelievable. The media cover-up is still in full effect, and now it's clearer than ever what terrorist organization/religion they are protecting.

UPDATE: 4/19 9:45 PM

Finally! Sean Hannity came out tonight on his show and started hammering his guest William Bennett with the many uncanny connections that Ishmael Ax has to islam and wondered aloud why that is being ignored. Bennett, whom I almost always agree with politically, chickened out big time and said we shouldn't look into that possibility. Sean, let me be the first to virtually shake your hand.

Yom Hashoah

Today was Holocaust Remembrance day, or Yom Hashoah. It is a blindingly sad and horrific day of remembrance for us Jews, but for me the prevailing emotion I feel strongest is raw, guttural anger and rage at how the filthy moslems are doing everything in their power to finish the job Hitler had brutally executed during his evil reign as fuhrer.

You see, I don't want to use "the power of love" to fight terrible evil. I don't want to offer pacifism with the hope it may generate mercy from my enemies. No, I want these hideous enemies utterly and completely crushed, and nothing less than their unconditional defeat should be tolerated.

I will keep this post short because ranting is probably a disrespectful way to honor the 6 million dead, but I do want to leave you with this one solemn vow: Islam IS the ultimate threat to civilization, and particularly the Jewish people, and I will not stop yelling at the top of my lungs for the eradication of that terrorist organization as long as I live.

Never again? That's turning into more of a hopeful statement than a defiant one for far too many Jews if you ask me. Time to get the fire in the belly back!

TMW and OMIN have been going at it for weeks now, as many of you may have noticed. TMW is a Christian Zionist friend of MZ while OMIN is an Orthodox Jewish friend of MZ. MZ doesn't want any theological blood to spill on his floor, as I see the CZ's as friends doing their part to help the Jewish people reclaim all of the Holy Land and remove the insipid vermin who are trespassing on the ground God gave to us as an eternal heritage. OMIN is taking a harder line.

Therefore, TMW has invited OMIN - and the rest of us - to an open thread discussion at her site where she will try to see if her and OMIN can find enough common ground to become allies. This should be interesting, so check it out.

Go to The Merry Widow to see all the action.

If Imus had to be fired, how about these bigots?

OK, I so am annoyed with the "Imus" controversy I could puke. He makes a joke and he's fired? Ridiculous political correctness run amok. That said, I thought I would chime in to see if some other prominent broadcasters and media personalities also need to be fired for racially insensitive remarks - remarks that WERE NOT said in jest, mind you!

Let's see who else is a racist...

"So try not to laugh when someone says these are the world’s greatest athletes, despite a paucity of blacks that makes the Winter Games look like a GOP convention."
-Bryant Gumbel, broadcaster, on the Winter Olympics

"Before he cleans out his office, have Paul Tagliabue show you where he keeps Gene Upshaw's leash. By making the docile head of the players union his personal pet, your predecessor has kept the peace without giving players the kind of guarantees other pros take for granted."
-Bryant Gumbel, broadcaster, on black NFLPA leader Gene Upshaw

He doesn't look like he's that type of an athlete. But he is. He is, man. I don't know ... some brother down in that line somewhere ... I don't know who saw what or where, his great-great-great-great-grandma ran over in the 'hood or something went down."
-Michael Irvin, ESPN analyst, on white Dallas QB Tony Romo

"The world will tell us he was killed by accident. Yes, it was a social accident... It's an accident to allow an apartheid ambulance service in the middle of Crown Heights... Talk about how Oppenheimer in South Africa sends diamonds straight to Tel Aviv and deals with the diamond merchants right here in Crown Heights. The issue is not anti-Semitism; the issue is apartheid... All we want to say is what Jesus said: If you offend one of these little ones, you got to pay for it. No compromise, no meetings, no kaffe klatsch, no skinnin' and grinnin'.
-Al Sharpton, talk show host, on the Jews after a black boy was killed in a car accident

Ok, let's await the big fallout! I'm sure those bigots are about to lose their jobs any minute now!

Vermin again call for extermination of the Jews

No, you are not going to be surprised to read this, and, no, you will not be reading this in the MSM, and, no, this will not change anything, and, no, Israel will not do anything about it. Still, it is important for those of us who have a shred of common sense to realize how there is no other answer to the moslem problem (no accident that rhymes, eh?) except to completely and entirely remove them from Eretz Israel.

Arutz Sheva - Hamas spokesman, Dr. Ismail Radwan (PA TV, March 30, 2007): “The Hour [Resurrection] will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews and the Muslims kill them, and the rock and the tree will say: ‘Oh, Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, kill him!’

“We must remind our Arab and Muslim nation, its leaders and people, its scholars and students, remind them that Palestine and the Al Aqsa mosque will not be liberated through summits nor by international resolutions, but it will be liberated through the rifle. It will not be liberated through negotiations, but through the rifle, since this occupation knows no language but the language of force…

“O Allah, strengthen Islam and Muslims, and bring victory to your Jihad-fighting worshipers, in Palestine and everywhere… Allah take the oppressor Jews and Americans and their supporters!” feels good to be back at the vermin, denouncing their religion as a death cult, calling them filthy murderers and criminals, crapping all over the koran, urinating on the scum who follow islam... it's like Chicken Soup for the Zionist soul!

Thinking Blogger Award Winner: MZ!

Zelda over at Urban Grind has been kind enough to award (tag) me as a Thinking Blogger Award winner! She is already linked up here, so if you haven't already had the pleasure of checking out her site, please be sure to give her a visit and add a comment. Her blog has that Jewish New Yorker theme, and combines elements of her city life with some fierce Zionism. Gotta love it.

Anyhow, this is what she said about little old me.

Mad Zionist is a proud, intelligent right wing Orthodox Jewish man who never minces words when it comes to Israel and her Arab fifth column population. I admire him for having the guts to speak out on subjects that many so-called religious Jews avoid like the plague, and also for being so right wing. (In fact, I feel like less of an oddball for being Jewish and right wing as a result.) MZ also has a dedicated group of visitors. I enjoy reading their comments along with his excellent responses.

Not bad, eh?

Here's how it works...

Should you choose to participate, please make sure you pass this list of rules to the blogs you are tagging. The participation rules are simple:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think.
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme and know you thinks so highly of you!
3. Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote.

So, without further delay, allow me to tag the following five Thinking Blogger Award winners (in no particular order)!!

Hammer - This dude has an amazing non-political site, the only a-political blog that I visit on a daily basis, and let me tell you, it is a real scream. He's got stories about life that must be read to be believed. Ever think the people in your life are totally insane? Think again. Go visit Hammer's world and see what a real mess is all about. Enjoy the wild stories about how he's endlessly trying to clean up the unbelievable messes all the lunatics he's got to deal with leave behind.

Zion Truth - A fantastic Jewish historian who rights in an educational style. Go to this sight if you want to learn something - you will not be disappointed. He is one sharp Zionist.

In Russett Shadows - A very bright Christian Zionist blogger who is an expert in the field of computers when not slaying liberals with his top shelf writing. Pay him a visit and see for yourself how he's not your average ranter, but a man seeking truth.

American Crusader - His site is a rightwing, Christian Zionist ranting zone with a good deal of research to back up is arguments. He offers well prepared posts and is completely unafraid to say it like it is. His fearless approach, as you might suspect, is a trait MZ digs in a blogger.

Kahane Was Right - This site offers the graduate course for advanced Kahanism and Jewish religious nationalism. He's a true Torah scholar and a Kahanist to the core. I love it, and always learn something every time I visit his blog.

Pesach has finally ended, and now I can get back to trashing the vermin in my usual charming and delightful manner. Beginning tomorrow it's business as usual here at MZ central.

Passover with MZ, Part 2

OK, so here is the long anticipated continuation of Passover with the MZ's. Since I left you we had our two Seders at my inlaws house, where we slept the first two nights of Pesach. It was wonderful, as we shared great food and meaningful discussion of our exodus from Egypt over 3,000 years ago.

At their house I had the rare opportunity to sneak in some serious afternoon napping. WOW, was it nice to make up for some of my long running sleep deprivation! I must have slept two hours each afternoon.

Unfortunately, for some strange reason my daughter decided to go into anti-Daddy mode for the first and second nights, but got over it by day three. She's only two years old, so at this stage she's either pure love and kisses or hell on wheels. Those of you who've had kids undoubtedly understand exactly what I'm talking about. Fortunately, my 5 month old boy loved me the whole time.

The Seders are an incredible concept, and among of my favorite nights of the year. The primary purpose of the Seder is to teach the kids about our being led out of Egypt and slavery by God's hand. Everything is designed for the kids to participate, with many fun songs, props, and of course the four questions. Of the four questions, the first one is what it is all about. That is, "Why is this night different from all other nights?" That is the whole reason why we do the get the kids to ask what's going on so that we may tell them the story of Pesach.

Anyway, I was so proud of my daughter (yes, even though she was not in daddy mode at that moment) because she actually knew the first question (mostly) in Hebrew! Not bad for a two year old, eh?

Oh, did I mention that according to Jewish tradition we are obligated to drink at least 4 full glasses of wine during the Seder dinner? It certainly helps take the edge off.

Then we had a relaxing day on Wednesday, (my daughter loved me again!) and just took it easy trying to recover from all the craziness. We finally came home after candle lighting on Wednesday night and were just completely shot. It was no rest for the weary though, as Shabbos was around the corner on Friday and we were to be hosting 18 adults plus 4 little children/babies for dinner! Thursday was a back breaker for the MZ's - making a big turkey, meatballs, mashed cauliflower, sweet potato casserole, etc, etc...

Anyway, it came together wonderfully. The food was incredible and the evening was big fun. After dinner, we had an especially lively singing of our grace after meals prayers (bensching). The MZ family also was fortunate enough to have been provided a blessing in the way of a hired server that made our clean-up a breeze. Everyone went home around 11:00 and we were ready to just collapse by that time into bed.

Not to think that was it for our hosting, mind you. Today, Saturday, we hosted two couples and their kids for Shabbos lunch. We served mostly leftovers from the night before, plus a chicken dish and a farfel kugel that my wife had prepared in advance. After lunch, one of my friends hung out with me and played a couple games of was very nice. Oh, we also drank 3 or four shots of a special Pesach liquor and had a couple glasses of wine, too, for good measure.

Anyway, that's enough for now. We have another Yom Tovim (Holy Days of rest) on Sunday night through Tuesday night when Pesach finally ends. Monday night we host our inlaws again for dinner and on Tuesday we have neighbors coming over for lunch...gotta get ready again soon!

Whew...I'm tired just thinking about it.

Chag Semayach!

Passover prep at MZ's house, Part 1

Shalom, all! I know many of you are not 100% familiar with all that goes into Passover for an observant Jewish family, so let me invite you into my levin-free home for some wine, matzos, and a little story about what it's all about and what we have got to do to be ready for Pesach.

First of all, a husband and wife somehow need to eliminate all chometz (levin) from their house before Pesach actually begins on the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Nissan without killing each other first. This is no simple task, and I am proud to announce that Mrs. Z and I have somehow gotten through yet another year, thank God.

You think it's easy, do you? I can tell you do. You're just sitting back laughing thinking, "big deal, you dump the bread and go about your day. What's with all the pissing and moaning?"

Bah! You have no idea what you are talking about. We need to get rid of all the dishes that we normally use since they've been exposed to chometz, we need to eliminate all the grain products, get rid of every table cloth that had chometz served on it during the course of the year, every fork, every dish, every glass, every can of beer, every bottle of scotch, every box of cereal, every bit of meat in the freezer and fridge, every crumb on the floor, and every Cheerio on the counter. All of it goes, and this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Starting to see how this could be a bit of a challenge?

Of course, the reason that this is done dates back to the time in Torah when the Jews were led out of Egypt and had been required to eliminate all levin from their homes if we hoped to keep safe from the plague of the first born God placed upon the Egyptians. Of course, God doesn't always intervene when a stressed out wife is on the verge of going postal trying to be prepared for Pesach, but that's another issue.

Now, you may be asking yourself how we are able to empty our home of all our kitchen utensils, pots, pans, dishes, liquor, glasses and everything else we must nullify if we are to be properly kosher for Pesach. The answer is that we actually sell our chumetz in order to renounce our claim to the forbidden. This is done by giving the Rabbi of the community a donation to be the broker who sells our chometz with the intention in mind that after Pesach it would be bought back by the original owner. Real contracts are used to insure that the sale is a legitimate, legal, at risk transaction that cannot be viewed as a scam or loophole. It is a very real and sincere deal, and we do it every year out of necessity.

You see, perhaps in isolated ghetto communities under Arab rule there was no need to worry about tremendous quantities of expensive dishware, liquor and silver, because no possessions of great monetary value existed in the 3rd world homes the Jews had to suffer in. People lived like dirt. However, when we became prominent merchants and businessmen, and had vast quantities of valuables, it became virtually impossible to transfer our Chumetz, so we needed to find a halachically legal solution that would allow for a transfer of chumetz to take place - thus, the Rabbi selling the chumetz became the eventual preferred method.

Anyway, we are now Chumetz free, having gutted the house of levin and then selling all that we could not throw away. I must confess to being exhausted and relieved, so it is time to get a little shut eye...

Stay tuned for more...
