BBC: Neocon Zionist Jews, Christians Behind Bush

Posted by Avi M on January 3, 2007

I finished watching this 45 minute documentary and felt it was worth sharing with readers. It seems to have been filmed during the first year or six months of the US led war in Iraq.

I found a few things interesting.

  1. According this video most Neo-Con’s were once political leftists. I had no idea that this was the case (or if it is the case) but I sure hope that’s not where I am headed!
  2. Also according to this video a high percentage of Jews are/were part on the Neo-Con movement behind the war in Iraq and Bush White House.
  3. Lastly looking back at this time period, its absolutely amazing just how wrong these Neo-Con’s seem to have gotten it.

Anyhow check it out and let me know what you think.

Ima Wisdom “ Men are BIG babies”

Posted by Avi M on January 2, 2007

The other day I was talking to Ima about life, love and all of that when she decided to let me in on a little secret of hers and it was that I was lucky because Tamara was a really nice because she balanced me out in a great way. She then went on to inform me that I was not going to be a cake walk to live with so it was a good thing that Tamara was a strong person because its what I needed. Oh also that actually all me were, are and will always be big babies.

Note: I may or may not have taken artistic taken when writing the above.

A Tale of Two Friends

Posted by Avi M on January 2, 2007

Over the last several days I’ve done some growing and learning in the old friendships department. And it has included a combination of the frightening, depressing and illuminating but before I get into what happened let me give you a bit of background information. Throughout most of my life I’ve been fairly needy and insecure in terms of my worthiness as a friend and companion and that being the case many awkward and unfortunate situations have arisen in terms of my various friendships. I won’t go off in to any cathartic diatribe here but suffice it to say that historically my limiting self-perceptions have made me vulnerable to other people’s mistreatment and more importantly has allowed me to sell myself short in all sorts of social settings. I don’t think I’m that person anymore but a shadow still lingers and on some level I always fear his return.

And with that on to my story.

Over the past year I’ve blogged about my conversion process and how it has impacted my life in various ways. Some of you may remember me posting about how I feel that some of my Buddhist friends have bailed on me, I’m guessing because of my rejection of Buddhism and conversion to Judaism. It is however completely possible that they see me as having bailed on them but I feel that I’ve made enough effort to maintain relationships that this should not be the case.

The Beatles explain ‘ Tomorrow Never Knows’

Posted by Avi M on January 2, 2007

Although I’m not a huge fan of everything especially the earlier stuff the Beatles did, I do enjoy their later more psychedelic offerings. This track “Tomorrow Never Knows” is by far my favorite and so I thought I would share it with you.

Also here is an interesting discussion about the origins and technical aspects of the song.

Photo Post: Fear of God

Posted by Avi M on January 1, 2007

This shot was taken in one of the Jewish districts of Los Angeles although I can’t remember which one at the moment. It was on the outside a of the rundown orthodox shul and struck me as something worth remembering.
