# Note: Chanukah is the traditional spelling. Hanukkah is the most widely used spelling. Also known as ‘Festival of Lights’.
# This Jewish Festival commemorates the Rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem, at the time of the Maccabean Revolt (167 BCE – 160 BCE) when Jews rose up against against Greek-Syrian oppressors in the Seleucid Empire (312 BCE – 63 BCE) – a Hellenistic State.
“Jerusalem belongs to Israel and not to anti-freedom Islam.”
Kirk Douglas a dedicated Jew served in World War II 1941-1944 against the oppression of tyranny.
And I remember many great classic movies in which Kirk Douglas starred. One important film part fact, part fiction 1966 ‘Cast a Giant Shadow’ dramatises Israel’s heroic struggle for independence.
After a career with the U.S. army, WWII Jewish American Mickey Marcus is called to the new state of Israel to build an army capable of withstanding its Arab foes.
Also starring, Senta Berger, Angie Dickinson, Yul Brynner, John Wayne and Frank Sinatra. All of whom amongst many others, are my favourite actors.
Sadly, Kirk Douglas opposed Donald Trump in 2016 months before his 100th Birthday.
Allan Ivarsson comments… “Whilst Kirk Douglas concerns seemed valid, I believe Donald Trump has proved that he stands for ‘Freedom Values’ and is a great leader who also supports Israel.”
“Donald Trump is the most Pro-Israel President in U.S. history. His father Fred Trump was a Lutheran from Bavaria and was disgusted by what the Nazis did to the Jews during World War II, and Donald learned to feel that same disgust.”
“Donald’s mother was a Scottish-born Presbyterian.
“Fred Trump became friends with Netanyahu while he was the Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations in Manhattan. And thus Fred Trump was dedicated to Israeli Causes.”
“Benjamin Netanyahu later became Prime Minister of Israel and is a strong long-time friend of Donald Trump founded by Fred Trump.
“Donald Trumps older brother joined a Jewish fraternity, ‘Sigma Alpha Mu’, chapter, open to all men, while attending Lehigh University, even though he was not Jewish.”
“Sigma Alpha Mu’ was founded in 1909 at the City College of New York as a Jewish Organisation, however in 1953 the fraternity dropped its religious affiliation and became open to men of all faiths. Today its headquarters are located in Indianapolis, Indiana.”
“Ivanka, Fred’s daughter, converted to Judaism in 2009 before marrying an orthodox Jew, Jared Kushner. Trump’s first visit to Israel was in May 2017 when he became the first sitting U.S. President to visit the Western Wall. I remember seeing the photograph of Donald Trump facing the wall in a sign of respect.
Donald Trump grew up in New York and had a lot of Jewish friends even though he was not Jewish. He has been falsely called by Socialists (the left) as being anti-Semitic. That blatant claim is a deliberate unscrupulous lie.
Donald Trump’s wife Melania, First Lady, has given Donald Trump loyalty and complete dedication in support of Trump, albeit she is many years younger. Melania is the first Catholic to live in the White House since President John F. Kennedy and his wife Jacqueline. Melanie is the second Catholic First Lady of the United States.
Many foolish Jews in the American Jewish Community criticize Donald Trump ignoring his pro-Israel Policies. Many politicians including Jewish Politicians are cautious in supporting Israel true to their cowardice. Whereas Donald Trump is not afraid to support Israel, even though he is not Jewish.
Donald Trump recognises that the Jewish People are entitled to live in a secure state, true to their ancient history. Donald Trump recognises Israel as an important ally and asset to the security of the United States. And Australian Politicians should be equally as smart and recognise likewise, that Israel is an ally of Australia.
“Donald Trump donated heavily in the 1980’s to help build new infrastructure for the Israelis removed from the Northern Sinai as part of the peace agreement with Egypt.”
“Donald Trump during his term of office has done a significant amount of improvement for Americans increasing American financial strength and prosperity in Industry and Jobs and equally has improved the strength of America’s Military Forces which previous President Barack Obama ripped down.”
“Trump has also recognised the foolishness of Climate Change activists and their false knowledge insecure ideas and has opposed Iran and its Nuclear Weapons obsessions head-on. Which Obama failed to do.”
Consequently thanks to the great commitment and efforts by Donald Trump, Australians have a great ally. I trust Aussies appreciate the importance to us of that significant achievement. I look forward to the day when we have an Australian Political leader with the strength and character to build Australia up to the equal standards of American Military, and Primary Industry and Manufacturing strength, thereby creating greater financial strength and prosperity for the next generation of Australians. Let us work towards Aussies becoming smarter in self-sufficiency and upgraded self-development.
