A Tree Living Without a Forest.

I have in the past been accused of conflating the State of Israel with the Jewish people and very much hope to get so-accused heading into the future for a long, long time to come. While it is true that Israel is not directly synonymous with the Jewish people – …

An Open Letter to a Jewish Friend in England

I don’t know, Kate. Sometimes it just seems pointless. Sorry to be downbeat, but I feel like I am glaring into a howling thunderstorm. In California we could use the weather, but I worry about my friends elsewhere. You may be aware that the Washington Post just published an infographic …

The Genocidal 72 Percent.

This is the contemporary Ku Klux Klan. As with the Klan they feel it necessary to wear masks. They are worse than Night Riders because they feel free to carry out their violence in the daytime because they know they have Arab-Palestinian society, as created by Yassir Arafat and the …

If Israel will not stand up for the Jews…?

Judenrat: Beinart.

UPDATE:    I made a mistake.  The term “Judenrat” is not appropriate.  I should have gone with “Kapo,” instead. ==== Peter Beinart is a Judenrat. This is to say, he acts as an agent and intermediary of the enemies of the Jewish people while claiming to be a friend to the …

Eyeing Temple Mount Terrorists.

This should prove interesting. As I write, The Algemeiner is reporting that Israel and Jordan will cooperate in the installation of video surveillance cameras on the Temple Mount, perhaps within days.  The Palestinian-Arabs do not like it because they know such footage will show the world who the aggressors are on …

Netanyahu and the Nazi Mufti .

I feel reasonably certain that there is not a single individual on the planet today under more intense political pressure than Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Jihad and the Destruction of History

Islamists and Jihadis love to blow things up. Islamic Jihad just called for a return to suicide bombings against Jews in Israel, but when they aren’t blowing up Jews they just love to blow to smithereens the ancient antiquities of other cultures. Anyone who follows the chaos which is the …
