To all of my Jewish friends, l’shanah tovah! May this upcoming year of 5780 be a sweet and happy one!
And to all my non-Jewish friends, may the coming lunar year be a sweet and happy one too!
Happy New Year!!! Let’s hope that the year 5773 is an exceptional year in all ways that are good for Jews, Americans, Israel, and America. I wish the year’s blessings on the rest of the world’s citizens today, but they’ll earn it only if they play nice with us.
Obama is having a bad week when it comes to Joo . . . janitors. After his mispronunciation faux pas (which was probably the innocent act of a mental stumble bum, but which sounded appalling coming from Obama, who has proven hostile to Israel and the Jews), he’s now issued a Rosh Hashanah message that’s sure to offend. Here’s the message:
And here’s Keith Koffler explaining why, peculiar accent aside, Obama put his foot in his mouth again:
The insult is this:
Around the world, a new generation is reaching for their universal rights.
By this he means the “Arab Spring.” Just as he did in his Passover greeting, Obama is using a Jewish holiday to tout the struggle of people who, by and large, hate Jews.
It’s a tribute to how little this supposedly worldly man understands about other cultures that he could possibly place the Arabs and the Muslims into a Jewish New Year greeting.
You should read Koffler’s entire post, ’cause it expands on this point.
I’ve said it before of Obama, and I’ll say it again: What a maroon.
Sadie sent me quite possibly the best New Year email I’ve ever received, and I share the email, and the good wishes, with all of you:
May you enjoy your applies and honey
Have a wonderful 5772!! Health & Happiness!
I knew President Obama would approve of this New Year’s message from the janitors of the world:
Shanah Tovah! May you be inscribed for a sweet (and, since this is janitors talking, clean) New Year!

Wishing my friends, Jewish and non-Jewish alike, all the best for the upcoming New Year.
