December 2, 2012 / 18 Kislev 5773

www.aish.com/jw/s/Bubba-the-Anti-Semite.html

In an unintentionally amusing video being e-mailed around, a large-boned, jowly man with a droopy mustache and hair parted down the middle sits at a desk and reveals a secret scam that Jews have been levying on unsuspecting Gentiles for years. Behind him hang an American flag and a banner featuring a large swastika.

The short “program” is billed as “White Nationalist News” and our trusty correspondent is identified as “Mich Bubba.” Heavy metal guitar introduces and ends the spot; the refrain of the tune (if it can be called a tune) is “Tricky, Tricky Yid.”

The conspiracy Mr. Bubba proudly exposes is the “Jewish tax” that hides in plain sight from unsuspecting non-Jews in secret code on food packaging. Long familiar to Hebrews of traditional bent, the various kosher symbols (the popular U inscribed in an O that is a trademark of the Orthodox Union – which Bubba calls the “United Rabbinical Council” – as well as myriad graphic riffs on the letter K) are indications that the product so marked was produced under the supervision of a rabbi expert in the intricacies of both kosher law and food science. Bubba hews to the belief that such foods are simply “blessed by a rabbi” and identifies one product as carrying a second sinister rabbinical group’s certification – “parve” – which he pronounces “parVEY” (French rabbis, probably).

In his essential point, of course, Bubba’s right. Companies do indeed pay for kosher certification.
As they also do, of course, for the right to display, say, the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval (for which manufacturers must purchase advertisement space in Good Housekeeping magazine). Or as they indirectly do through increased manufacturing costs for the right to call their products “organic” or “natural.” To Bubba, however, the Jewish arrangement is singularly unkosher; it smacks, to his fuzzy lights, of a Jewish “shakedown.” If companies pay for a rabbi’s service, he unreasons, the cost must surely be passed on…secretly, of course…to “Gentile” consumers.

The risible accusation is nothing new; it resurfaces almost every time logic-challenged anti-Semites manage to catch their breath between rants on the Middle East and “Jewish control of the media.” As to inconvenient facts, the New York Times reported in 1975 that the cost to General Foods for rabbinical supervision of its Birds Eye line of products worked out to .0000065 of a cent per item. A Heinz company representative maintained that its own kosher labeling actually decreases the cost of items, by increasing the market for them – the only rational reason, of course, a company would choose to pay for such a service in the first place.

Nor is Bubba compelled to buy one brand of corn dogs or beer over another. If the kosher item in fact proves more expensive, he can simply opt for one that hasn’t been supervised by a rabbi (which, he makes quite clear, he prefers in any event).

If there is anything Jew-haters don’t like, though (besides Jews), it is having to deal with pesky facts. There are more important things to do, like sowing hatred and suspicion.

Most folks even loosely connected to reality know that there are no Elders of Zion (at least none who aspire to world control), and no Jews who murder Christians to mix their blood into matzos, that such things are (forgive me) Bubba-maisehs. And yet, millions keep even those myths alive (not to mention create new ones, like Jewish recruitment of Arab innocents to fly planes into buildings). So it should hardly be surprising that there are people accusing us Jews of less obvious, more insidious crimes…like kosher certification.

The persistence, ubiquity, and sheer creativity of anti-Semitism rightfully concern us. But there is also something curiously invigorating about it all.

Because it points to what underlies Jew-hatred: the suspicion that the Jewish People are special.
However odd it might seem of God, He did indeed choose the Jews. In other words, yes, Bubba, there is a plot (though not exactly a conspiracy; there’s only one Plotter).

But Bubba needn’t panic. What anti-Semites like him don’t realize is that the Jewish mission isn’t to subjugate but to educate. Keep it under your hat, Bubba, but what we Jews are charged with is living lives of holiness and service to God and man.

That includes prayer, charity, and acts of kindness, study of holy texts and meticulous honesty in all our dealings – as well as a multitude of ritual matters, including eating kosher food. But no, Bubba, undermining society and levying hidden taxes aren’t on the list.

One day, God willing – likely when we Jews shoulder our mission with more passion and determination – those who labor so hard to hate us will suddenly be stopped cold in their tracks and made to meet a reality they never considered: that Jewish specialness was never a threat to them at all, but a gift.

Kazimiera Mika, a ten-year-old Polish girl, mourns the death of her older sister, who was killed in a field near Jana Ostroroga Street in Warsaw during a German air raid by Luftwaffe.
………………………..
.

Photographer Julien Bryan described the scene: "As we drove by a small field at the edge of town we were just a few minutes too late to witness a tragic event, the most incredible of all. Seven women had been digging potatoes in a field. There was no flour in their district, and they were desperate for food. Suddenly two German planes appeared from nowhere and dropped two bombs only two hundred yards away on a small home. Two women in the house were killed. The potato diggers dropped flat upon the ground, hoping to be unnoticed. After the bombers had gone, the women returned to their work. They had to have food.

But the Nazi fliers were not satisfied with their work. In a few minutes they came back and swooped down to within two hundred feet of the ground, this time raking the field with machine-gun fire. Two of the seven women were killed. The other five escaped somehow.

While I was photographing the bodies, a little ten-year old girl came running up and stood transfixed by one of the dead. The woman was her older sister. The child had never before seen death and couldn’t understand why her sister would not speak to her…

The child looked at us in bewilderment. I threw my arm about her and held her tightly, trying to comfort her. She cried. So did I and the two Polish officers who were with me…" [Source: Bryan, Julien. "Warsaw: 1939 Siege; 1959 Warsaw Revisited."]

In September 1959 Julien Bryan wrote more about it in Look magazine:

In the offices of the Express, that child, Kazimiera Mika, now 30, and I were reunited. I asked her if she remembered anything of that tragic day in the potato field. "I should," she replied quietly. "It was the day I lost my sister, the day I first saw death, and the first time I met a foreigner – you." Today, Kazimiera is married to a Warsaw streetcar motorman. They have a 12-year-old girl and a boy, 9, and the family lives in a 1 1/2-room apartment, typical of the overcrowded conditions of war-racked Poland. She is a charwoman at a medical school (she told me her biggest regret is that her education ended when the war began), and all of the earned each month by her husband and herself goes for food. Kazimiera and her husband, like most Poles, supplement their income with odd jobs, and are sometimes forced to sell a piece of furniture for extra money. But they celebrated my visit to their home with that rare treat, a dinner with meat.

When you suffer from panic attacks, they are both terrifying and exhausting. These attacks can have lasting effects that may interfere with such everyday things like work, family and even going outdoors. Here are some effective ways to manage panic attacks so you can live your life again.

Get past a panic attack by speaking positively to yourself and thinking calming thoughts. Keep in mind that it’s just temporary. Reinforce the idea that you are in control.

To begin your plan against your panic attacks, you need to first assess the situations that trigger your anxiety. When you know all your signs, you’ll have the ability to know when you’re starting to have an attack. Knowing ahead of time can make a big difference.

When a panic attack starts to begin, stop what you are doing, sit back, and start taking slow, deep breaths. Breathe in through your nose making your torso rise, and try counting slowly to five when you breathe inward and then again when you breathe outward. Count how many times you do the breathing until you hit 10 and you should feel better.

One thing you can do to help calm your panic and thoughts is to simply accept the way you are feeling, even if it’s bad. Trying to subdue these thoughts can just make your anxiety worse. Let your thoughts teach you about the potential cause of your anxiety, instead. By facing your thoughts and fears, you can work through them. It may take some time, but eventually you can accept them, move past them and be happier.

Seek out a way to cool your body down. Some ways to do this include drinking some ice water, standing in front of an open fridge or placing ice packs on your body. The cold sensation will shock your system into focusing on something else besides teh stress you are feeling.

Keep a close eye on your level of stress, if you desire to reduce the chances for a panic attack. Doing so is vital because it makes you accountable for the levels of stress you permit yourself to be subjected to. This self-awareness may afford you the advantage of preempting attacks by enacting control as you sense anxiety rising. If you do suffer a panic attack, the increased awareness will help you end it more quickly.

Panic attacks are symptomatic of a variety of problems. By learning how other group members cope with their own problems, you may pick up some valuable techniques for dealing with your panic attacks.

The adrenaline you release during an attack gives you energy. Focus this energy on a task, for instance cleaning your house. This will release some of that energy, and improve your calm because you will have decreased your clutter.

To help keep panic attacks at bay, sleep at the minimum six hours every night. If you are sleeping the proper amount, you will wake rested and refreshed. The more rested you feel, the easier it will be for you to control your emotions. In essence, if you feel you have control, you will be less likely to panic.

If you have panic attacks it is important that you avoid isolating yourself. If you put yourself around more positive influences you will be able to lift your spirits and get through some tough times. Try to reconnect with family and friends as often as possible!

These practical tips will offer help in your battle with panic attacks. Try to remember that negative thoughts can trigger an attack. You can put your mind to it and learn to control them. The hard work and effort it takes to treat your panic disorder is well worth it.
