It is our duty to be provocative

From Israel: Obscenities!!

Second Israeli-Arab terror attack in a week

Last week 4 innocent Israelis were killed, brutally butchered by a knife-wielding Israeli Bedouin terrorist.  No, not a Palestinian, an Israeli-ID holding Bedouin.  In his rampage he killed Laura Yitzhak, Rabbi Moshe Kravitzky, Doris Yahbas, and Menahem Yehezkel.  Between them they left 10 orphans and fathomless depths of grief and …

From Israel: Sad, Scary, and Spurious!!

First matters first.  And so I begin with news of a major terror attack that took place in Be’ersheva, in the Negev, yesterday (Tuesday) afternoon.  It is the worst attack that Israel has endured in some time.  Four people, two women and two men, are dead. Two women were wounded; …
