Arlene from Israel: Fate of America.

Pity the anti-Zionist Snowflake.

One of the most pathetic and hypocritical aspects of contemporary western campus politics is the Crybully / Snowflake phenomenon. University administrations throughout the West have brought back en loco parentis in a manner that would have absolutely disgusted – in its treacly infantilization of young adults in “safe spaces” – college …

Red-flagging November 8th.

Voting for Israel – a rough guide Like most of us, I guess, Five Minutes for Israel has been obsessing about the upcoming American Presidential election. I concede, something that partisans on both sides seem to find impossible, that there are genuine Israel advocates and it-is-politically-convenient-for-me-to-appear-to-support-Israel advocates on both sides. There …

On Myopia and Dismissiveness.

MYOPIA. Some time ago one of our participants at Israel Thrives suggested that my focus on Israel, and the rise of Political Islam, is myopic in terms of the forthcoming US presidential election. I take such criticisms seriously and even though I might not respond immediately – or at all …

Dear American Jews voting for Hillary.

Dear American Jews voting for Hillary. If you could go back in time to Germany, at what point would you have woken up to realize that the leaders in Germany were not quite right for the Jewish people? They may have been perfect for everyone else. Obviously the German leaders …

Arlene from Israel: A Different Sort of Posting.

My friends, it is the middle of Sukkot – what we call Chol Hamoed, a semi-holiday.  I am bent on doing the good stuff – being with family, going into the Old City, etc.  I do not have time for a full “regular” posting, which takes hours beyond counting. But …

FrontPage Mag Says “Hello” to San Francisco State University

fighting antisemitism

Whatever anyone might say about David Horowitz he definitely does not pull punches in his piece in FrontPage Magazine. I always think of the guy as a general marshalling his troops and setting them forth to ideological warfare. But I feel reasonably certain that he, himself, would agree with that …

Israel, Multiculturalism and the Decline of Universal Human Rights.

The great unspoken tension within the progressive-left, today, is the ongoing ideological conflict between the dominant multicultural ideal and the declining ideal of universal human rights.

Into the Fray: Obama at the UN – Why he was right…almost

Obama’s UN address was an eloquent concoction of soaring rhetoric & banal platitudes, of statements of the obvious & of the obviously false, delivered with impeccable polish and panache.  …a nation ringed by walls would only imprison itself…Israelis and Palestinians will be better off if Palestinians reject incitement and recognize …

The Breezy Academic Left’s Hypocrisy & their Fashionable Acceptance of Calls for Judeocide

Imagine, if you will, a fictional organization called Students for Justice in the United States that focuses on African-American urban crime. Imagine that this organization suggested that black misbehavior is undermining the United States economically and educationally, socially and culturally. What if thirty, or so, of such students were to …

Time to put fear-mongering away.

The West is in danger, but we can still prevail. We begin the struggle by standing up for our values and telling the truth about Islam. Even when we are insulted, even when we are harassed and intimidated, even when we are marked for death just for stating an opinion—we …

HGSS, Jewish News & Yachad, shutting mouths of London Zionists.

A Jewish newspaper in the UK smears a Zionist movement in a badly researched hatchet job, a London synagogue bows down to pressure and cancels a Zionist event.  A scene from an antisemitic horror movie?  No, this is the actual state of affairs of Jewish London in 2016. Read on …

Mortem – Death.

I was going to name this piece “The Death of American Politics” but American politics has been dying since it was born. That is, American politics has been so partisan and so toxic for so long that it has become virtually impossible to separate fair assessments of truth from media-driven propagandistic …

Germans have “Schadenfreude” Jews have “Alemtzev”.

Schadenfreude.  It’s a fascinating word.  It means “a feeling of enjoyment that comes from seeing or hearing about the troubles of other people.”  If that sounds quite mean, consider an example. Imagine a person treats you poorly, perhaps cutting your car off on the road.  Should that person subsequently run over …

How Trump SHOULD have answered the Khans.

If one judges by the continuing media reaction the one and only thing worth remembering from the Democratic National Convention was the mother and father of a deceased Muslim soldier coupled with Donald Trump’s tone-deaf, self-centred response. Did Hillary Clinton say anything, remotely memorable or even jeerable? The bottom line is …
