riddle

Dov who is a diabetic couldn't control himself when he saw the chocolate danish. 

He decided to cheat and eat the whole danish. The Rov told him to make a Brocho Rishono (Mezonos) but not to make a Brocho Achrono. (Al Hamichya) Why?

  1. My guess: because we don’t recite a blessing on foods that violate Torah law or because “we don’t recite a blessing on a curse”.

    “It is true that the American legal system derives much of its content from the Old Testament [also known as the Jewish Bible or Tanach]…

    When we were growing up, my friends and I would take great pride in discovering the Jewish sources of American laws, such as: the privilege against self-incrimination, the requirement of two witnesses for certain types of crime, and the very idea that punishment must be proportionate to the crime committed.”

    “…Zecharia, like so many of his contemporaries,
    worked for a time in a sweatshop.

    The shop he worked in, making pocketbooks, was located in a building just east of Washington Square [in Manhattan],
    site of the ill-fated Triangle Shirtwaist Company.

    On the Saturday of the great fire in [March 25,] 1911 [CE] that engulfed the building and killed 145 workers, Reb Zecharia was at home. It was the Jewish Sabbath.

    He learned two lessons from this: he vowed that his children would never become factory workers and he vowed that they would never work on the Sabbath.”

    CHRONOLOGY:
    Zecharia Derschowitz moved from Galicia to
    the USA in 1888 CE. He was the great-grandfather
    of Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz.

    The Grand Mufti [Islamic leader] of Jerusalem, in addition to becoming Hitler’s ally during World War II, adapted Nazi genocidal theory to Islamic theology.

    He called on his Muslim brothers to:
    “Murder the Jews! Murder them all.”

    Other Islamic leaders used Nazi words like “extermination” in referring to the goals of Arab victory [against Israel].

    “My father was once rudely ordered to remove his cap by a federal judge, when he came to court to watch me argue.

    The judge quickly apologized when he learned
    it was my father he was yelling at.

    But the fact that he yelled at all shows how intolerant and ignorant a judge can be of a minority religious practice, even in a city as Jewish as New York.”

    Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

    “Palestinians have learned the political value of invoking human rights rhetoric. Indeed, Former U.S. State Department official Alan Keyes has argued that by changing the terms of the Mideast debate from a political issue between Israel and the Arab states into a human rights complaint by occupied Palestinians, the PLO has won an undeserved political and diplomatic advantage.

    Palestinian political organizations now present themselves as human rights organizations, and the media fall for it.”

    Ida Nudel said this to Alan M. Dershowitz
    in year 1974 in Moscow:


    “The Jews are blamed for everything.

    Even in the current context of reform in the Soviet Union and throughout Eastern Europe, there is finger-pointing at the Jews and the Zionists.”
