In response to the SFSU story, Geoffff has a few words: Can you imagine the fury if a campus Jewish group did this? “My heroes have always killed invaders”. T-shirts with the face of Baruch Goldstein on sale” “. the only ‘peace’ I’m interested in is the head of this …

Arab Anti-Zionists Call for Murder at San Francisco State University

On December 3 of last year I published a piece entitled “State Funded Incitement to Murder at San Francisco State University.”  This article concerned itself with the fact that a number of university funded student political organizations, including the General Union of Palestine Students (GUPS), called for murder during an event …

Not One Israeli Killed

Joshua Levitt of the Algemeiner reports that at the Munich conference on Saturday, American Secretary of State John Kerry claimed, “Last year, not one Israeli was killed by a Palestinian from the West Bank.” Leaving aside the question of what, exactly, is a “Palestinian,” or where the “West Bank” is …

Tom Wilson in an article for Commentary entitled, Clapper: Iran Ready for Nuclear Breakout,  points out that immediately after Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address, in which he patted himself on the back for allegedly halting the progress of Iran’s nuclear program, Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, claimed otherwise in …

The Zionist Organization of America Comes Out Swinging

I have to say, I am developing an increasing appreciation for Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) chief Morton Klein.  He is one of the very few establishment Jewish leaders in the United States willing to face the truth about the Obama administration and face that truth head-on. The cultural environment …

“ZioNazi” Thesis Statement and a Synopsis of Chapter One

People familiar with Israel Thrives will find the below redundant. I believe that I have said pretty much everything that I want to say and am at this point consolidating ideas and organizing thoughts.  What we have below is merely the beginning of an attempt to do so. It is …

The Obama Administration’s Opposition to Jewish History

Those of you who follow the Jewish press and pro-Israel blogosphere are probably aware that UNESCO has cancelled a long anticipated exhibit created by the Simon Wiesenthal Center, and co-sponsored by Israel, Canada and (strangely enough) Montenegro, to have been titled, People, Book, Land – The 3,500 Year Relationship of the Jewish People and the …

Settler Sushi!

Did you know that sushi was gaining popularity among Jews in Judaea and Samaria?  I sure did not until I read the below, but as with so many things Israeli, or perhaps Jewish, even a story as simple as this one quickly becomes something less simple. The tidbit below was …

A Native-American Zionist Has Some Words

I find the recent dust-up with our friend Ryan Bellerose to be instructive. Bellerose took exception to a comment by Trudy suggesting that the very notion of “indigenous” is nonsense.  I am actually not heavily invested in that word, but the Jews have as much right to what I am calling “indigenous status” as …

Israel: The First Modern Indigenous State

I have been arguing for some time that we need to place the long Arab war against the Jews of the Middle East within the modern western civil rights paradigm. If the west, or at least the western-left, honors the struggle among people of color for national liberation, or if …

The Obama-PLO Assault on Israeli Sovereignty

The tidbit below was written by Caroline Glick and published in the Jerusalem Post: Netanyahu reportedly agreed to release terrorists from prison because Kerry told him that he had to make a big concession: either release murderers or effectively surrender Israel’s national rights to Judea and Samaria and Jerusalem by abrogating Jewish …

Incitement to Murder at San Francisco State

It has been a number of weeks since I have discussed the situation at my alma mater, San Francisco State University, in which a number of political student organizations, including the General Union of Palestine Students (GUPS), called for murder. The signs read, “My heroes have always killed colonizers.” It …

Language and Lenses: “West Bank” versus “Judaea and Samaria”

The language that we use to discuss a conflict in some measure predetermines how we will view that conflict because it represents the lens.  This is obvious.  Thus it is equally obvious that when discussing the Arab-Israel conflict whether one uses the term “West Bank” or the terms “Judaea” and …

Quote of Note: PLO Leader Zahir Muhsein

Zahir Muhsein told the following to the Dutch newspaper Trouw in a 1977 interview: The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, …

Giving San Francisco State University the chance to do what is right

  After consulting with a number of people for whom I hold respect at San Francisco State University, I have decided to back off the General Union of Palestine Students (GUPS) story until the university has the time to go through its procedures, come to its conclusions, and take whatever …

The Death of the Left

The tidbit below was written by Allan Goldstein and published in the Algemeiner. Israel is fighting for its right to exist with one hand tied behind its back. The left hand. Conservatives strongly support Israel. We have won that battle. Only on the extreme right wing, the lunatic fringe of fascists and …

Quote of Note: Auni Bey Abdul-Hadi (1937)

Between 1936 and 1939 the Arabs of the British Mandate of Jerusalem went on a rampage that became known as the “Arab revolt.”  The Mufti of Jerusalem, Amin el-Husseini, cried to the heavens that the Jews were destroying the al-Aqsa Mosque and agitated his easily agitated people into bloody rampages that lasted for …

SFSU Responds to Arab Calls for Violence Against Jews

San Francisco State University (SFSU) president, Les Wong, has responded for the second time to criticisms that calling for the murder of Jews is perhaps something less than educative.  And for the second time he refuses to address the central issue, which is a call to violence against Jews by the General …

Screeching for Jewish Blood at San Francisco State University

I find it fairly remarkable that my alma mater, San Francisco State University (SFSU), funds a student organization that calls for the killing of Jews. The great irony, of course, is that SFSU is among the foremost universities in the United States dedicated to social justice and human rights, which is …
