Jews and our “Special” Obligation.

A recent opinion piece for the Washington Post by Rabbi Jill Jacobs, author of Where Justice Dwells: A Hands-On Guide to Doing Social Justice in Your Jewish Community, and Daniel Sokatch of the allegedly pro-Israel New Israel Fund, is entitled, “Why Jews have a special obligation to resist Trump.” Jacobs and Sokatch claim that: …

OK, so I said yesterday that my posting was the last before the election.  And now here I am again.  With good reason.  Most importantly, I want to share the link to Trump’s fantastic video finale for the campaign.  I urge you to view it and then consider sending it …

Arlene from Israel: Fate of America.

“Since a new FBI probe was announced by FBI Director James Comey a week ago, concerning the discovery of possible additional emails connected to Hillary Clinton, she has stepped back in her campaigning.  Instead, in some measure, she has been relying on others, including the president, to campaign for her. …

Red-flagging November 8th.

Voting for Israel – a rough guide Like most of us, I guess, Five Minutes for Israel has been obsessing about the upcoming American Presidential election. I concede, something that partisans on both sides seem to find impossible, that there are genuine Israel advocates and it-is-politically-convenient-for-me-to-appear-to-support-Israel advocates on both sides. There …

Into the Fray: The elections are for President—not Pope

Arlene from Israel: Hope Grows.

Hope for a strengthening of the US, as Hillary may be headed for defeat.  Hope that America may not implode. I’ve had a suspicion for some time that the polls showing her ahead were not accurate, and that many more intended to vote for Trump than the numbers indicated.  But …

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 …

For the SIN of American JEWS SILENCE AND INDIFFERENCE

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. Both in tone and in content, it marks a new hostility and plenty of sheer ignorance. The comment, titled “Recent Israeli Settlement Announcements,” ran as follows: “We are …

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 …

Arlene from Israel: Looking Up.

When Hillary Clinton announced her running mate – Virginia Senator Tim Kaine – on Saturday, she declared that he “is everything Donald Trump and Mike Pence are not.” http://www.marketwatch.com/story/hillary-clinton-describes-tim-kaine-as-everything-donald-trump-and-mike-pence-are-not-2016-07-23 Well.  It’s very rarely indeed that I agree with Hillary.  But here I do, saying Baruch Hashem (Thank Heaven) for the …

Obama’s Ongoing Friendship with the Muslim Brotherhood .

In a recent piece entitled, The Pathos of Jewish anti-Zionism, I referenced Obama administration support for the Muslim Brotherhood and wondered aloud how any Jewish person could possibly stand behind a president of the United States that offered moral, military, and financial support to an organization devoted to a genocidally …

Into the Fray: Bennett at Saban:What he should & shouldn’t have said

Naftali Bennett gave a spirited performance at the recent Saban Forum, but was far more convincing on what should not be done, than on what should be done.  You know, I just think you live in another reality. It’s what Steve Jobs called distorted reality thinking. – Martin Indyk to …
