Hannah Szenes in a Hungarian army uniform as a Purim costume

Hannah Szenes (often Anglicized as Hannah Senesh or Chana Senesh; Hebrew: חנה סנש‎; Hungarian: Szenes Anikó; July 17, 1921 – November 7, 1944) was one of 37 Jews from Mandatory Palestine parachuted by the British Army onto Yugoslavia during the Second World War to assist in the rescue of Hungarian Jews about to be deported to the German death camp at Auschwitz.

Szenes was arrested at the Hungarian border, then imprisoned and tortured, but refused to reveal details of her mission. She was eventually tried and executed by firing squad. She is regarded as a national heroine in Israel, where her poetry is widely known and the headquarters of the Zionist youth movement Israel Hatzeira, a kibbutz and several streets are named after her.

“There are stars whose radiance is visible on Earth though they have long been extinct. There are people whose brilliance continues to light the world though they are no longer among the living. These lights are particularly bright when the night is dark. They light the way for humankind.” -Hannah Senesh, poet, playwright, and paratrooper (1921-1944)

THE FOLLOWING IS MY SYNDICATED COLUMN THAT WAS PUBLISHED July 4, 2006. OBVIOUSLY NOT ALL OF THE PEOPLE NAMED THEN ARE LIVING AND/OR IN OFFICE TODAY BUT THE NAMES OF THE ELECTED POLITICIANS ARE INTERCHANGEABLE WHEN IT COMES TO THEIR NOT HAVING OUR BEST INTEREST IN MIND AND THEIR LEVEL OF CORRUPTION. AS I SAID, CHANGE THE NAMES I REFERENCED THEN WITH THOSE IN OFFICE TODAY AND THIS PIECE IS EVEN MORE PRESCIENT THAN WHEN FIRST PENNED SEVEN YEARS AGO.

John Kerry’s idea of freedom may be marrying uber-wealthy heiresses. Ted Kennedy’s idea of same has been to live off his gangster father’s bootlegging money. Howard Dean, D-Vt., Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., view freedom as bullying and intimidating any Democrat congressman who gets out of line (especially if he is black) and bashing the president at every opportunity.

I am extraordinarily happy to be able to provide this to all the readers here at TMQ2 in this dark age of ignorance called “Political Correctness”.

THIS IS A BIT EARLY PERHAPS, BUT… IT NEEDS TO CIRCULATE ….

Snowy Christmas scene

I will be making a conscious effort to wish everyone that I come into contact with for the next full week a Merry Christmas whether they’re Christian or not… and especially to Muslims.

This is my way of saying that I am celebrating the birth Of Jesus Christ.

So, I am asking everyone who views this post, if you agree with me, to please do the same.

And if you’ll pass this on to everyone you meet, at your place of work (or in the unemployment line whichever the case may be), at the shopping malls and the grocery market, on the street, and so on…

Maybe we can prevent a priceless tradition that is such a joy to so many from being lost in the sea of repression and denial that is sponsored and supported by so few.

Merry Christmas

To One and All!!!

Merry Christmas~ Merry Christmas~

Merry Christmas
