Note on Netanyahu’s greeting: “Shana Tova” means “A good year,” traditional greeting on the Jewish New Year.

And note to Obama: Your opening greeting was totally mispronounced; were you talking Esperanto?

We don’t really appreciate your lecture on the meaning of this, or any of the other holidays.

And yes, observant Jews *will* be praying…to soon be rid of your disastrous Regime.

Via Times of Israel:

In an English-language message for Rosh Hashanah, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu railed against the “bigoted and prejudiced” critics of Israel who level “slanderous charges against the one and only Jewish state.”

The short video message, posted to the prime minister’s Facebook andYouTube accounts on Sunday just hours before the start of the Jewish new year, hailed Israel as a “beacon” in the ailing Middle East and called for a united front against Israel’s detractors.

“Since last Rosh Hashanah, it’s become evident to all but the most bigoted and prejudiced that Israel stands out like a beacon of progress, of modernity, of democracy and of human rights in a region plagued by fanaticism, by terror, by unbelievable savagery,” Netanyahu said….

“And I ask you this Rosh Hashanah to join with all Israelis, with all the friends of Israel, with the Jewish people everywhere, in wishing for a better future for the world, for the Middle East, and most importantly, for the one and only Jewish state. [May we have] a good year.”

Via Jerusalem Post:

U.S. President Barack Obama released a recorded message to the Jewish community on Friday, wishing it a happy new year as it prepares to ring in Rosh Hashana.

“Jewish tradition teaches us that, for the next ten days, the Book of Life is open,” the president said. “As millions of Jews ask God to inscribe their name in that book, we recognize how much lies beyond our control. Yet during these Days of Awe we also recognize our tremendous power to make a difference, in our lives and in our world.”

“As human beings we’re not required to be perfect, but we are required to atone where we’ve fallen short, and to do whatever we can to avoid repeating the mistakes of the past,” Obama said.

“Faith is hard, hope is hard, peace is hard, but right now the book is open, not just for God but for us. As a community bound together by shared values, side by side with friends and allies like the State of Israel.”

    It is a shame we can’t have a real president like Netanyahu!

    Lecturing is not saying, good wishes.
    “bound together by shared values” – ‘shared values’ is the buzz phrase for Muslims are just like us. In 1980, Jimmy Carter gave statement on Islam and our shared values. Ditto for Bush 41 in 1991 and the Archbishop of Canterbury in 2003.

      Alain, I am impressed that you could actually read and “digest” Obama’s babbling. Honestly, I have no idea what he is talking about: “right now the book is open, not just for God but for us.” So, God is also being judged?? :/ Who wrote this “message” for him? Needs to be fired, pronto.

        Bomfog is hard.

        He actually said, ‘community bound together by shared values’. Community organizers got to community organize.

        My cynical distrust is so high with Obama that I question why he’s meeting Bibi on 119, the opposite of 911. It is a Monday, so that’s the plausible explanation, but I have concern that in ME it will be viewed in a negative symbolic manner.

    Abraham Lincoln- Who knew? But we all are surely aware now, thanks to our President and Constitutional scholar: “Here in America, Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding”.
    I for one will be forever grateful and will never forget the sacrifice and contributions of men like Patrick Muhammed Zawahiri Henry, or Sheik Benjamin Ibrahim Franklin among many others…

    In other Compare and Contrast news, when we had a Democrat President who defended freedom instead of supporting terrorism; Sept. 15, 1950, Marines landed at Inchon.
