I can’t stress enough the importance of reporting the bullying you suffer if you’re a target. Yes, speaking out is scary and yes, it involves taking a huge risk of being retaliated against.
But understand that anytime your bullies retaliate against you for reporting them- anytime they seek to punish you for daring to open your mouth, it only goes to show that they’re only scared to death!
It also shows that they’re desperate, but, more than that, it shows that they’re guilty! Because if they weren’t guilty, they wouldn’t need to retaliate and they wouldn’t need to try and silence you.
Most people still haven’t caught onto this yet, but behind every bully’s retaliation for a target’s reporting their abuse is the fear of being exposed and the knowledge that they’re guilty.
Understand that, though members of authority and bystanders you speak out to may not want to listen to your pleas for help, the truth is that they can never unhear what you’ve told them.
And though they all may cover for the bully and deny they saw any bullying take place, they can still never unsee it. The important thing is for it to reach their eyes and ears.
Think about this. Warplanes always get bombarded with the most flack any time they’re flying over their target- this is when the battle is at it’s absolute worst! You see, the closer the plane gets to the target, the more the enemy will escalate their defensive attacks.
It’s the same with bullies, any time you’re over the target and pegging them on their BS, any time the bullies suspect that you’ve got their number, they will hurl all kinds of insane attacks on you. So, expect it, accept it, and, most importantly, prepare for it.
And if you ever find yourself in this kind of situation, don’t let them shake you. Always remember the warplane analogy and you’ll better withstand the onslaught. Even better, you’ll be able to call it out when it happens.
You’d be surprised how much easier it is to fight against something once you can put a name on it and explain it. A problem that you can put a name on and explain clearly is a problem you can more easily solve.
With knowledge comes empowerment!

bullying is so rampant
Sadly yes. 💯😥
The k’vanna of the Rif’s halachic commentary to ראש השנה
Power, tends to cause leaders to make toxic assumptions, and even worse political decisions. Power, brings the collapse and destruction of empires. Nothing more contains the expression of power that the use of a nations’ military. The military “invests” the lives, it gambles the life of the youth of a particular generation. The British empire, after exhausting the youth of an entire generation, never recovered from the disaster of the first world war. The 2nd European general Civil War permanently knocked Europe from its perch as the elite of the 1st world Great Powers.
G’lut Jewry, prior to the Rambam Civil War, enjoyed no such expressions of power. Stateless Jewish refugee populations scattered in isolated tiny communities across Western Europe and North Africa – Sephardic Jews within Arab and Muslim countries – struggled with anti-power. Anti-power: the expression of political leadership which gambles the lives of the youth of a particular “class”, the extension of which includes more than one generation, which encourages assimilation to the dominant cultures and customs of host societies and civilizations, by our OWN leaders. Stateless refugee populations usually lack the ability to project the Will of military power.
Yasser Arafat, the collapsed empires of Europe simply adore. A stubble faced refugee pretended to project power; in 1974, a year after the latest Arab defeat before Israeli arms, Arafat addressed the UN sporting a holster. The leader of the PLO declared: “Today I have come bearing an olive branch and a freedom fighter’s gun. Do not let the olive branch fall from my hand.” Yet, in point of fact, anti-power plagues the Arab refugee youth scattered across the Middle East and the world.
Post 1948 Arab refugee populations, despite being Arabs, remain to this day in Apartheid refugee camps. They live in Apartheid refugee camps in countries scattered across the Middle East. Yet European propaganda, those disgraced & collapsed empires, they promote a rhetoric ‘blood libel’ against Israel. These trash barbarian hypocrites accuse Israel of practicing racial Apartheid. European governments arm the youth of Arab refugee populations with weapons, their political agenda promotes Arab hatred of the Jewish State in the Middle East. The UN excludes Israel as a member of the Middle East community of nations.
Nothing shocked and surprised the fallen empires of Europe more than the victory of Israeli arms in the first and second Israeli wars of Independence – the 1948 and 1967 wars. Just 3 years after defeated France regained its national Independence, Israel and India witnessed the collapse of the British empire. The Sétif massacre in May 1945 served as the foundation of the Agerian revolt against the French empire. France too sacrificed their youth upon the altar of the First World War. The 5th of Wilson’s 14 points for peace, many ‘aalimath‘ (guardians, transmitters, and interpreters of religious knowledge in Islam) perceived Wilson’s opinion as applicable to themselves. It read: “A free, open-minded, and absolutely impartial adjustment of all colonial claims, based upon a strict observance of the principle that in determining all such questions of sovereignty the interests of the populations concerned must have equal weight with the equitable claims of the government whose title is to be determined.” Many Algerians, and not just Germans, abhorred the final results of the Paris Peace Conference.
The leader of France, de Gaulle, lacked the power to oppose Jewish Independence in 1948. But the founder of the 5th Republic and author of the new French Constitution, 2 years before his death, adamantly opposed the Israeli victory of Independence in the 1967 Six Day War. France, no friend of the Jewish State, having witnessed the collapse of their African empire, co-authored UN Resolution 242 in an effort to negate the growing Israeli nation state. From then to today EU and Russian governments have pursued a united foreign policy rhetoric propaganda which favors the dismantlement of the Jewish state – ‘piece by peace’.
Even at the height of the ‘Cold War’, the hostile Johnson Administration, sought to extend the US empire to both Vietnam and the Middle East, it too favored a 2 State Solution, despite the fact that no Arab state of Palestine had ever existed in history. It too challenged the unification of Israeli rule over Jerusalem, despite the fact that President Truman condemned the illegal nationalization, by the king of Jordan, of the territories of Samaria in 1948. In 1967, suddenly Washington wanted to restore the prewar status quo, a situation wherein Israel held weak and easily invaded borders. To this day, Western cartographers rhetoric propaganda fantasize Samaria as the ‘occupied West Bank’; conveniently oblivious to the fact that Britain, as the mandate government of “Palestine” separated mandate “Jordan” at the Jordan river in that dying empires attempt to “contain” the Jewish state.
The Truman Administration, set the US military foreign agenda upon the two feet of the Marshal Plan and the Containment Policy; foreign aid in exchange for US military bases, and determining the borders of foreign countries like Korea, Vietnam, and Israel. Western Great Power attempts to shape and determine the borders of nation states did not limit itself to the Treaty of Versailles mockery. European powers fight wars, the racial Will of narcissistic megalomania European leadership, generation to generation, the pornographic military power of empires – to draw up and determine the national borders of foreign countries, not adjacent to their own borders.
The British empire divided India from Pakistan. The Allies likewise divided Korea and Vietnam into 4 separate countries. The Allied victors previously broke up the Austria-Hungary and Ottoman empires. Determination of the borders of nation states has shaped ‘Great Power’ politics throughout history. And herein lay the root of destruction for ‘Great Power’ projection of its empires upon lessor states; like the division of China into spheres of influence – late in 19th century. All successful military campaigns require assured supply routes. The horrid barbarism exemplified by the SS during Operation Barbarossa, guaranteed that Ukrainians would attack German supply lines. The Nazis surrendered at Stalingrad due to their incompetent inability to resupply their invasion forces.
Empires invest huge capital resources to attain military superiority. A strong Air Force for example: great when an army employs the tactics of ‘Shock & Awe’. But over time, the enemy learns the ‘habits’ of invading soldiery. The Vietnamese knew at what times the B-52s would drop their bombs. The tactic of ‘Shock & Awe’ lost a lot of its shine and glimmer.
Confronted by ‘Peoples’ War guerrilla tactics – which effectively countered US static military dogmatism – ‘Peoples War’ rhetoric propaganda encouraged and promoted domestic American opposition to the war. Pictures of Hanoi Jane Fonda – operating a ‘Charlie’ anti-air craft gun – disgraced home front America. Americans expressed an irate growing opposition to US imperialism; they despised both Johnson and the corrupt industrial military complex. That hated fool did not run for re-election in 1968; disgraceful political assassinations defined American politics during that election cycle. Fragging Officers destroyed military order within the ranks. Drug addicted soldiers, turned back to the United States totally humiliated.
Corruption within the US military industrial monopoly resulted in more expensive yet inferior weapons reaching the front. America as an empire suffered total military defeat, as witnessed in the US withdrawal from chaotic Hanoi under Nixon; that President did not complete his term of Office with honor. Huge deficits defined all post war governments in Washington; America transformed itself into a debtor nation, which owed billions to foreign governments from Britain, an ally, to China, a mortal enemy. After Germany lost its war of imperialism, it too owed billions to enemy countries. Which caused inflation to undermine the confidence of the German people in the ability of the Weimar Republic to maintain both the economy, and stable rule.
US imperialism fought the Korean, Vietnam, Iraqi, and Afghanistan Wars. All these countries shared long borders with countries hostile to US strategic and tactical interests. A defining quality of US generals, they loathe to send US soldiers to invade neighboring countries. Despite Nixon’s attempts to bomb Vietnamese supply routes, air superiority has its limitations. To curtail a supply route requires troops on the ground. Johnson used the excuse of an attack by whales on a US destroyer to justify his illegal invasion of Vietnam. Nixon could not pull a similar false flag stunt to excuse the invasion of Cambodia and Laos. American military adventures abroad began a repeating series of defeats which include Iraq and Afghanistan. All these military defeats share the common denominator, US military forces failed to conquer and control enemy supply lines.
How does this assessment logically infer to the disastrous error made by the Rambam code? That code, like Hanoi Jane, divided and disgraced assimilated g’lut Jewry. Just as bureaucratic corruption in the industrial military complex produced a marked inferiority of US weapons systems during the Vietnam war and thereafter, Jewish exiles lost our ability to correctly study the Talmud; the latter defines and establishes classic Judean culture and customs that prevailed prior to the Jewish exile from Roman “Palestine”. G’lut Jewry lost all knowledge that avodat HaShem requires the dedication of tohor middot, דאורייתא ודרבנן. G’lut Jewry abandoned the Cohen nation tohor status & identity. Generations of Jewish youth assimilated and embraced foreign cultures and customs, and thereafter became lost to the Jewish people. Especially after the Muslim invasions of Spain, and the resultant rediscovery of ancient Greek philosophy; which had earlier provoked a Jewish Civil War during the times of the Maccabees.
