“Palestinian” Cartoons

We have to somehow make it clear that the malice within the Arab-Israel conflict is not equivalent on both sides. That is, there is no morally equivalent “cycle of violence” between Arabs and Jews. The far larger Arab nation, which gobbled up the entire Middle East shortly after the death …

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 …

The parameters of the discussion.

Most westerners – left, right, and center – think of the never-ending conflict between Israel and the “Palestinians” as one between a country with one of the most prestigious and effective armed forces in the world versus a small and hapless, but plucky, indigenous population. What we need to do …

I Have Been Radicalized!

I confess. I have been radicalized! I am a radicalized westerner. I am a staunch supporter of the morals, values and ethics that underpin my country Canada: ethical monotheism-the Judaeo/Christian ethic that tells us we are all intrinsically equal and must care for the other.  I am so radicalized that …

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 …

Please prove me wrong.

For once, I had thought we would see a mutual condemnation, for once, I thought I would see the morality of people standing strong against bigotry and hatred. In the past week, as I watched those claiming to represent my people, Jews, and Israelis, brutally stab LGBTQA* activists, and firebomb …

Paula says : “I Am So Disgusted.”

I am disgusted that any Jew, especially one who claims to be religious, especially one who claims to be “ultra” religious, can stab innocent people not in defense, which may be allowed according to our laws, but simply because those people choose to live their lives according to rules that …
