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 …

For the SIN of American JEWS SILENCE AND INDIFFERENCE

We stand on Holy Ground between the day that was and the one that must be – There are about six million Jews in America.  Almost the same number who were murdered by the Nazis with the collusion (ignorantia affectata) of Christian Europe and America – a country that was …

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. Given the racialized nature of World War II it is not the least bit surprising that American liberalism shifted from a primary concern with …

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 …

Last April students from the San Francisco State University (SFSU) chapter of the General Union of Palestine Students (GUPS) called for “intifada” directly in the face of Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat.

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 …

Obama’s Racism and Counterproductive Stupidity.

Writing in Israel Hayom, conservative thinker Elliot Abrams tells us: “This week the State Department engaged in a remarkable assault on Israel.

Facebook. A pipeline for funding Hamas terrorism?

Arabs in Gaza are swarming social media platforms and sending private messages to pro-Palestinian activists looking for donations. Is it just one massive scam?  Or are Hamas utilising social media platforms, not just to spread propaganda, but as a pipeline to raise funds for their terrorist activities? Hamas are one …

Arlene from Israel: Do Not Repeat the Mistake!!

At the beginning of Barack Hussein Obama’s first presidential campaign, I had enormous unease about who he was and where he would take the country. I wrote about this unease in a posting, in terms that were quite mild.  Back shot a furious response from someone I had known in …

Jews, Cops, and Black Lives Matter.

#BlackLivesMatter co-founder Patrisse Cullors, and over 1,000 black “social justice” activists, including other leading #BlackLivesMatter activists and allies, signed a vicious antisemitic, anti-Israel manifesto called the “2015 Black Solidarity Statement with Palestine,” falsely accusing Israel of “ethnic cleansing,” “brutality,” “massacres,” “apartheid,” “theft,” and “one-sided slaughter.” The “Black Solidarity with Palestine statement” also “wholeheartedly endorsed” …
