Rosh Hashanah Service in New York

President Obama extends warm wishes for Rosh Hashanah.

Rosh Hashanah marks the start of a new year – a time of humble prayer and joyful celebration. As members of the Jewish faith here in America and around the world gather to celebrate, President Obama extends his warmest wishes. The President said:

"[T]his sacred time provides not just an opportunity for individual renewal and reconciliation, but for families, communities and even nations to heal old divisions, seek new understandings, and come together to build a better world for our children and grandchildren.

"At the dawn of this New Year, let us rededicate ourselves to that work. Let us reject the impulse to harden ourselves to others’ suffering, and instead make a habit of empathy – of recognizing ourselves in each other and extending our compassion to those in need.

"Let us resist prejudice, intolerance, and indifference in whatever forms they may take – let us stand up strongly to the scourge of anti-Semitism, which is still prevalent in far too many corners of our world.

"Let us work to extend the rights and freedoms so many of us enjoy to all the world’s citizens – to speak and worship freely; to live free from violence and oppression; to make of our lives what we will."

Read translations of the President's remarks here. Languages include Arabic, French, Hebrew, Persian, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish.

Thanks, Secretary Clinton. President Obama's words are true and provide the direction we must go in to see Middle East Peace. But, it will still take very hard negotiation. We wish you the very best in this endeavor.

Hi..

The Islam society characteristic act the point of sameness the name comes to seem near rule method in the dictatorship in compliance with the power person of the decimal in compliance with this religion is,the nation where the underground resources which is represented with oil is abundant the west world in compliance with a black capital the majority knows almost all power own house type and support of intangibility Is receiving, yet the nation which is poor in order with support of the oil-producing country to profess an Islam logic in the international community sometimes the method which is radical, Uses isn't used there is thought which is personal.

And the oil production nation thinks personally that probably "the Republican Party" and there is relationship which is considerable. Is quite personal. A more serious problem bifurcation recently and plants put thinks the numerous followers in the whole world and to problem. Undergoes the influence of the quality which that area is geographic and natural environment and comes to make, uses the religion which is originated from tradition and governs the people case

To former times the now when hits but is not a possibility of saying that anti-is right, them the amendment is necessity the thing knows but to think repelling which existing influence is strong, yet that to flowing, that is following, sees. The method which exacts the method of democracy absolutely from like this situation like now oil becomes the weapon, that does not hit, sees from the point of view which does.Now them, unreasonably, takes out at the outside, thinks probably only the obligations which strengthens an Islam internal solidarity more the thing which will provide.

Opposes recently thinks that quite trivial alternative must present.

Already is in the process of executing, but The Islam society the biggest victim is poor as ever and cannot have the benefit of education and (nation which is not like that is but thinks decimal is to problem,). Among the rest specially the social participation degree of the women that almost is not, thinks that sees to is accurate.

When enforces the policy for only the like that women? Thinks that promotes only an internal disruption rather. Is like that but does not rest and not to be uses a press, the women must do to make work from the work, sometimes many veterinarian women and children the candle confronts to the nation where the social participation of estrangement class is many periodically,

Provides an "education or a site experience" and thinks that must endeavor the continuation which changes their recognition. And, them to after returning home them. "The area or organizes community from the Internet" not being and does to make contact always, makes reception meet with which is unjust and when becoming, network of communication leads, each other receives a help, or, does to make a help receive in the foreign nation, end in case that evasion possibly must make what kind of plan of preparation which does in the foreign nation, sees. Changes the way where the millennium goes over any sacrifice or damage does not think will not be. Is many with being difficult, the sacrifice without ,this problem is thought the thing which will not be solved.

And, case the report thinks the release of the terrorist of Libya a while ago (fact from former times moderate to think as it is says for some reason a little),

"The great waterway" of the size which is a national does to make "the replacement of salt water by fresh water facility of cough equip" in the Islam nations of the minimum Middle East to will be how? They a while ago, earns the many money from the outside and admits and will hang with is knowing. Uses the funds and if in the space where the tree grows that area a little makes, the many change will happen from the nation where the water is the resources will not become the help where this reforms the society and peels? Possibly when is a technique of State of Israel? how about you? i think it`s, can and it make a little bridge for peace.

and continue.....

Historically change of social stratum the development thinks that according to economic bringing up for discussion fluctuation the case which happens is many. The Islam world from their inside, about democratization and Western influence of specific influence overcome of damage ceremony, about the citizen enlightenment without is many to be been difficult, when again also the Islam influence unites, thinks that the near work will can occur in oil shock.

P.S. The change of hasty policy now that the wisdom which disperses a pain and seeks a new consuming market to is necessary sees. The development which is unilateral knows and who to present the alternative will be able to sympathize, persuading leads and with the plan which induces the participation which is voluntary. Thinks the thing which "will do well".
