‘Protective Edge’. So, What Did We Win?

So, What Did We Win? Operation Protective Edge is apparently over. Terrific. In a recent piece for Israel Thrives and Jews Down Under entitled, Netanyahu and the West Doom Israel to Perpetual War, I argued that US and western pressure to let up on Hamas in Gaza inclined Netanyahu to accept …

Netanyahu & the West Doom Israel to Perpetual War.

With the recent alleged conclusion of Operation Protective Edge, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, along with the western powers, has doomed the Jews of the Middle East to perpetual war.

And Cries of “Genocide” Rang Out Across the Land…

Last week I discussed how the blood-libel has adapted to the current political moment and is growing within progressive-left discourse around the Arab-Israel conflict. The function of the blood-libel is to create hatred toward Jews for political reasons.  Just as the Nazis used hatred toward Jews as a uniting rallying-cry …

The Jews Kill Children

The purpose of the medieval blood-libel was to justify political violence against Jews through the claim that Jews kill children. Typically it was said that Jews use the blood of Christian babies for use in the making of matzoh… however anti-intuitive that may sound.  The blood-libel is an exceedingly primal …

This is Dana Bar-on and Hamas Wants Her Dead

Please watch and distribute. The last five minutes, by the way, are probably more important than the first five, so you should watch it through. The enemies of the Jewish people have for centuries claimed that we just love to kill children and innocents. This is the basis of the …

Jewish Monsters and the Horrible Rings of Hatred.

They honestly think that Jewish people are monsters. It is the only final explanation that I can come to. Hamas and Islamic Jihad, and other such affable neighbors blanket Israel in bombs – thousands and thousands of bombs over the course of years – ruining the lives of tens of thousands …

So, Just What is a “Palestinian,” Anyways?

The Philistines, of course, were a seafaring people of the Aegean islands. They were one of the rivals for regional dominance competing with the ancient Israelites along the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea over one thousand years before Jesus of Nazareth walked the land.
