I walked down the street in Barcelona, and suddenly discovered a terrible truth - Europe died in Auschwitz.

We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world.
The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world. These are the people we burned.

And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.
They have turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime.
Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.
And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition.

We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for hoping for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and theirs.

What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe.

The Pope says that jihad violence is against God's nature, and officials fear that in response, Muslims enraged by this insult will commit... jihad violence.
  • Muslims murder 3,000 innocents in New York and expect no criticism.
  • Muslims murder 202 tourists in Bali and expect no criticism.
  • Muslims murder 333 schoolchildren and their teachers in Beslan and expect no criticism.
  • Muslims murder 292 innocents, mainly Kenyans and Tanzanians at two US Embassies and expect no criticism.
  • Muslims murder 241 US and 58 French peacekeepers in Beirut and expect no criticism.
  • Muslims fire 4,000 Katyusha rockets into Northern Israel killing over 50 innocent civilians and expect no criticism.
  • Muslims murder 52 in London and 191 in Madrid and expect no criticism.
  • Muslims murder 200 in Mumbai and expect no criticism.
  • Muslims behead Western hostages in Iraq , Buddhist monks in Thailand and Christian schoolgirls in Indonesia and expect no criticism.
  • Muslims murder 500,000 in Darfur and expect no criticism.
  • Muslims regard Jews as 'sons of pigs and monkeys', and vow to nuke Israel and expect no criticism.
  • Muslims force women to wear hideous sacks, stone to death women for getting raped and for leaving the home unescorted, engage in honor killings of sisters and daughters for unapproved dating, and expect no criticism.
  • Muslims danced in the streets and handed out sweets to their kids to celebrate the 9/11 atrocity, and still expected no criticism.
  • Since 9/11 Muslims have killed over 26,000 and wounded over 50,000 in terrorist attacks worldwide and expect no criticism.
  • Since 9/11 Muslims have committed terrorist attacks in Afghanistan, Algeria, Bangladesh, Belgium, Chad, Chechnya, Dagestan, Denmark, East Timor, Egypt, England, Eritrea, Ethiopia, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Ingushetia, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Iraq, Kabardino-Balkans, Kenya, Kosovo, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Mauritania, Morocco, Netherlands, Nigeria, Pakistan, Gaza-Palestinian Authority, Philippines, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Scotland, Somalia, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Syria, Tajikistan, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Arab Republic, United States, Uzbekistan and Yemen, and still expect no criticism.
  • Muslims have carried out over 5,800 fatal terrorist atrocities since 9/11, and countless thousands since Islamic conquest began in 623 AD and expect no criticism. 

But if a Pope dares to tell the truth about Islam or Danes publish cartoons about Mohammed, then let the outpourings of Islamic hate and outrage begin.
And, by some twisted reach of logic, the arrogant Muslims demand the Pope issue an apology.

A Hesped for Rav Treger - the Rosh Yeshiva of Eitz Chayim

Press release (DRAFT)

London, Date: 9 June 2015

A Hesped for Rav Treger - as the Rosh Yeshiva of Eitz Chayim, Wilrijk, near Antwerp in Belgium was known - was held on Monday evening 21 Sivan at the Pardes Wiznitz hall on Lampard Grove, North London.

The event was attended by his many Talmidim, some whose grandchildren are now of Yeshiva age and many who only knew the Rosh Yeshiva from his many Shiurim that he delivered in Antwerp proper, having settled there in his later years.
Listening with rapt attention . . . .
HaRav Moshe HaLevi Hoffman
Wilrijk old-timers, who left the Jeschiwa (=Yeshiva) many decades ago sat alongside Yungeleit and listened as one eulogy after another highlighted the sterling characters that this Godol beTorah demonstrated throughout his very productive life.

Also in attendance was Dayan HaRav Yosef Padwa Shlita, whose sons attended Wilrijk Yeshiwa under Rav Treger Ztz"l. 

Following Minchah, the chairman Rabbi Moshe Halevi Hoffman opened the evening by describing his own feelings of loss, reminiscing on the many tranquil, learning filled years that he spent under the Rosh Yeshiva's tutelage.  

He echoed the sentiments of many, when he described the electrified air that permeated the Yeshiva walls, as if charged with Torah-power. 
HaRav Eliyohu Aftergut 
Rabbi Moshe Hoffman then introduced the guest speaker Rabbi Eli Aftergut who came specially from Antwerp to be Maspid his mentor, emphasising the many facets by which the Rosh yeshiva was uniquely famous: his breadth and depth of analysis, his concentration power and how he moulded each and every Talmid into a Ben Torah.  

He made us aspire to greatness and opened up vistas of learning that enabled us - his Talmidim, whom him dearly loved - to blossom in their adult years, long after they left the Yeshiva.

Rabbi Moshe Hoffman then introduced Rabbi Sholom Tzvi Englander, who kept the audience spellbound with his description of the Rosh Yeshiva's pedagogic prowess, retelling a number of anecdotes to illustrate this rare quality, for which our generation of Mechanchim is sometimes left wanting.  The Rosh Yeshiva invested much thought into how to present a novel idea of Mussar and Hashkofo, so that even the most recent arrival should be able to absorb it.

Rabbi Moshe Hoffman then introduced the youngest son of the Rosh Yeshiva, Harav Yitzchok Treger of Har Nof, Yerusholayim, author of Halichos Shlomo and other Seforim. 

Reb Yitzchok dwelled on the manner in which his great father the giant in learning who delved into the depths of the most intricate Sugyos of Shas, managed to explain his Shiurim to the young saplings that were under charge and how a variety of Torah movements and worldviews found a place in his large heart, by which he managed to unify such a diverse collection of Bochurim, many who were poles apart from each other - into a cohesive and happy Chaburah. 

HaRav Yitzchok Treger, son of the Rosh Yeshiva
His early Chasidic upbringing was augmented by the Lithuanian Derech HaLimmud in his formative years and found meaning after his wedding to the daughter of Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Auerbach Ztz"l, who was the epitome of Halocho in his days. 

With his typical warmth and natural way with people, coupled with his trademark humility, afforded him a route straight into the hearts and minds of his pupils, many of whom regard him as their life mentor - as was evident at this gathering.

The Talmidim agreed to perpetuate his memory in a Torah Way: using the end of the twelve-month period as a goal, the whole Shas (Gemorro Bavli) will be completed by dividing it into 30-folio portions each - לעלוי נשמת מורנו הרב י-הודה ארי-ה בן ר' אברהם.  

The Siyum is planned for the 27th of Adar II 5776, when a dinner is to be held in London in memory of Rav Treger and in support of the Wilrijk Yeshiva.  For more details, contact 07974160252

The organisers wish to extend their heartfelt thanks to Mr Gershon Leitner and his able team, who laboured unflinchingly to guarantee the success of this auspicious event.  The large turnout surely is credited to his effort, for which we wish him success in all his private as well as communal endeavours.

A German's View on Islam - worth reading

This is by far the best explanation of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read.  His references to past history are accurate and clear.  Not long, easy to understand, and well worth the read.  

The author of this email is Dr. Emanuel Tanya, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist.  A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates.  When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.  'Very few people were true Nazis,' he said, 'but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care.  I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools.  So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. 

Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything.  I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.'  We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is the religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. 

Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant.  It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectre of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.  The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history.  It is the fanatics who march.  It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide.  It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave.  It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honour-kill.  It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque.  It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals.  It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.  The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the 'silent majority,' is cowed and extraneous.  Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people.  The peaceful majority were irrelevant.. China 's huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.
The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist.  Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet.
And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery.  Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were 'peace loving'?  History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence.  Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany , they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun..  Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.
As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts--the fanatics who threaten our way of life.  Lastly, anyone who doubts that the issue is serious and just deletes this email without sending it on, is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand.  So, extend yourself a bit and send this on and on and on!  Let us hope that thousands, world-wide, read this and think about it, and send it on - before it's too late.  Now Islamic prayers have been introduced into Toronto and other public schools in Ontario, and, yes, in Ottawa too while the Lord's Prayer was removed (due to being so offensive?).  The Islamic way may be peaceful for the time being in our country until the fanatics move in. 
And we are silent...

זה היום

זה היום שכל אנ"ש מכונסים בכינוס
מכל קצוי תבל עלו בדימוס

מחול לצדיקים - נאה להם ולחסידים
כשפוגשים חברים משכבר וידידים

לנסות ולהשתדל ביותר
שיהיה אחד מהם לא נותר

כי ישבו אחים יחדיו בדיצה
לטכס ולחשוב תשועה ברוב עצה

מה אפשר לעשות ולעשות אחרים
שנוכל להביא לגמר בין שני עברים

מצד אחד הבחור המבוגר עתיק יומין
עם העלמה הנעלמה ששערה מלבין

ומי יתן שנהיה מאלה שזכו
לשמוח בשמחתם כמו שבכו

לבקש מיושב מרום ומזווג זוג
שכבר יראו ביחד א גוט'ן טאג

בעת הזאת עדנא דחדוותא החתונה הגדולה
נא לזכור את אלה שעדין לא זכו ליום גילה

גש לחבר, לשדכן או אפלו לבדחן
מני ומנך תסתיים השידוך ויהיה לחתן
