If a leader is incapable of fulfilling his duties effectively yet fails to pass on those duties to someone who can do so; who is to blame?  Just as it may be unfair to blame the last Czar for his "inability" to fulfill his duties, it is just as unfair to blame Marx for the actions of those who used his theory to promote their on barbaric agenda.  That is like saying that Frederick Nietzsche or Wagner was responsible for the Nazi regime.  No one can control how others chose to manipulate their theories, philosophies or even music (short of simply not publishing them in the first place) as a means to propagate their own propaganda and agendas.   Although Marx's theories may have been utilized as a means to help push the masses into action which gave rise to what later became the USSR, doesn't mean Marx is some ugly vile creature worth spiting on.  And by no means can we say that his "slightly Jewish" heritage would have anything to do with that even if it were true that he was a vile man.  How many who tout such a harsh view of Marx has actually read his works?  Regardless of what people think, Marx was a humanitarian with a true desire and longing to create a better life for others.  However, his short sightedness was that he believed it was "humans" that would do that when in truth, only Allah can bring about such change.  But to completely discount his work and his theory is unjust.  If it weren't for Marx’s theory the world may not have the benefit of some of the more wonder “social” programs that are available.  The concept of social welfare program and social health care are very much a part of Marx’s view of a good society.  I know that Marx did not believe in Allah or bow to Him; however, if we truly believe in Allah we know that there is some measure of good in all things.  I can see the good in Marx’s theory, can you?  This doesn’t mean I have to embrace him or his theory, but I can thank Allah for the good that came from his work.

PAZ, Khadija

Daniel, I found these picture that say they are of Atlit.  Is this where you live?  What a blue, blue ocean and sky!

The water colour is about right but those pictures seem twelve
kmeters.south shy of Atlit. Those planes are used by the sky diving
school near Habonim.
Why people choose to leave a perfectly good plane while 10 thousand feet
in the air several times a day never ceases to amaze me/

My mother Zipora Bedrock (Dworsky) passed away the night of Dec 19 at
Nofeh Hasharon in Nathanya surrounded by a few of her children Baila
Rafi and myself Danny Dworsky.
Mom was 80 and had announced 5 days prior to her death that she was
"done and" had "No intention of living out the week."

Her last words were in answer to my daughter Maya's whispered comment
into her grandmothers ear, "I love you " To which my mother answered, "I
know"

Her last conscious act before her death was to laugh.

Bismillah,

Daniel, Allah Yarhamha, In Shah Allah.

You never had the urge to sky dive?

Regarding the urge to Sky dive... I got over it.
My sister Baila sky dives and many of my friends do. My cowardice often
outweighs my sense of adventure.   I like this about myself.

Two days ago I was taking the garbage out to the wheel bin at the end of
the drive way I share with my neighbours -both the wheel bin and the
drive way - there can't be any confusion about these important details...
Where was I? Right.
I froze at the end of the common driveway because when I looked up
there was the most spectacular rainbow I had ever seen. People on their
way to work were stopping and getting out of their cars to look at this
thing and photograph it which was a relief to me. I'm standing there with
my mouth open straight arming a bag of garbage and wearing PJ's and
Fuzzy snoopy slippers. I'm 5'7'' and weigh around 250

There's a point here somewhere-
Yes.
The point is: Life is amazing and precious. Why take the risk of
shortening it unnecessarily? My Mom - as sad as I am about her dying I
am also angry at her for deciding her time and place of departure into the
next world. At once and the same time I admire and resent her arrogance
and pride.

So many people aren't through with me yet. And when it's my time to go
I hope that I have the courage to leave the details of when and how up to
Allah. My wife asked me what arrangements I wanted in the event that I
died and I said "surprise me"

There's nothing like a good Joke and that was nothing like a good Joke.

Thank You for your letters and condolences. They mean a lot more than I
may seem to let on.

Things will be back to the normal level of craziness in a few weeks I
suspect.

Right now I'm a little confused and overwhelmed by life in general


Love, Good health,
Peace,
Good stuff,
Danny
