    Heinz tomato ketchup is a household name around the world, including in Israel. But now, thanks to a court ruling, that's about to change... sort of. Osem, Israel's leading food brand and top producer of ketchup, has succeeded in its bid to knock out its lead rival, by banning it from being called "ketchup." In its petition to the courts back in January of this year, Osem claimed Heinz's product did not have enough tomato content to be called "ketchup." Now, after a long legal battle, the court has ruled in Osem's favor, and Heinz will henceforth be known as...

    Dear Editor, I am Jewish, and therefore forbidden by my faith to rejoice in someone’s misfortune, even for individuals like Jimmy Carter, the worse (sic) president in the history of our beloved country. This peanut-grower sold his rotten soul to the enemies of the United States and Israel, Carter is an avowed anti-Semite who has no love for me or my people. By my own admission, I’m a fair man who hates no one (although I may dislike some people) but I will take this opportunity to remind the cancer-stricken Carter to follow through with the boycott of Israeli products....

    Reuters Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen, left, and Sen. Richard Shelby Congress kept Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen busy during the month of May, as Republicans demanded more details on a criminal leak investigation and introduced measures to revamp the central bank. Yellen met with lawmakers or spoke with them over the phone 11 times that month, according to her calendar, which was obtained under a Freedom of Information Act request. That’s nearly twice as many meetings with lawmakers as she held in March, her second-busiest month for Hill outreach since taking the Fed’s helm in February 2014. Of the...

    Real-estate mogul and GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump called for a boycott of Macy's on Wednesday after the retail company said it would drop Trump's products. Earlier in the day, Macy's said it was snubbing Trump because of the "disparaging characterizations" he made about Mexican immigrants during his campaign launch. Among other things, Trump accused Mexico of sending its "rapists" and drug dealers to the US. In addition to blasting Macy's in an official statement, Trump attacked Macy's in a series of tweets for being "weak on border security" Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/trump-boycott-macys-2015-7#ixzz3ergFOT2w

I created a petition on change.org to call for them to remove all material related to Che Guevara, the Cuban Communist activist/terrorist. I personally don't care for the Confederate flag, but as a conservative, I don't think it's my place to decide what people fly in their yards, or wherever they want. That's not the American way. So if we are going to ban the Confederate flag, we should ban works that are far more destructive, like T-shirts and posters glorifying...

In an interview with the San Antonio Express-News this week, Van de Putte says that in conversations with manufacturers and suppliers, they have all decided to stop making or shipping the controversial flag. “My official opinion is now that it is an offensive item and we...

Exactly 379 corporations and employer organizations urged the Supreme Court to strike down state bans on gay marriage, according to a friend-of-the-court brief obtained by The Huffington Post. The document was expected to be filed late Thursday morning. “Employers are better served by a uniform marriage rule that gives equal dignity to employee relationships,” reads the brief, filed by global law firm Morgan Lewis. “Allowing same-sex couples to marry improves employee morale and productivity, reduces uncertainty, and removes the wasteful administrative burdens imposed by the current disparity of state law...

"This is one way we as Christians can speak out," Graham said. "We have the power of choice. Let's just stop doing business with those who promote sin and stand against almighty God's laws and His standards."

    From a distance, the reservoir appears topped by a flotilla of rubber duckies. On closer inspection, the water’s surface is packed with thousands of free-floating, 13-inch plastic balls, clustered to form an undulating cover. Developed by the Israeli startup Neotop (formerly known as Top-It-Up), the mass of balls serves as a floating cooling tower, reducing surface temperatures, algae and evaporation up to 95 percent. It’s one of many potential water-saving solutions to come out of Israel’s high-tech dream factory. This could make a difference in California.

    Germany has rejected a definition of anti-Semitism that labels the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS) as anti-Semitic. Responding to a legislative questionnaire released Thursday by leading Green Party MP Volker Beck, the Merkel administration wrote that “there does not exist a general academic definition” of anti-Semitism. Beck, who heads the German- Israel parliamentary group in the Bundestag, sharply criticized the Merkel administration: “Here the federal government has cowered,” he said. “There is no doubt of the anti-Semitic motivation within the spectrum of the BDS campaign. BDS aims essentially against Jewish Israelis and is therefore anti-Semitic. Whoever aggressively boycotts Israeli...

The vote at one of the United Kingdom’s top universities was conducted over the course of a week, and after the announcement late Friday afternoon, partying broke out on the central London campus—along with a request for university authorities to cut their ties to Jerusalem’s Hebrew University.

    There are understandable differences of opinion between the American and Israel leaders on the issue of Islamist terrorism.

It is therefore painful that some honorable Democratic members of Congress should be so misguided as to declare that they will not attend the Israeli leader’s address. John Lewis (Georgia), a hero of the civil rights movement, G.K.

    There are plenty of people listening to talk radio. But over the past three years, it has become increasingly difficult to make money off it. Many national advertisers have fled from such stations in recent years, seeking to avoid associating their brands with potentially controversial programming. Radio executives said the erosion of ad dollars from talk stations was driven in part by a series of organized social-media campaigns by liberal activists in early 2012 that scared away advertisers.

The national program, called “Welcoming Schools”, skillfully works on the minds of young children in three ways: (1) Introducing the concept of homosexuality to children. (2) Telling them that homosexuality is normal and natural. (3) Telling them that their parents or friends who portray homosexuality in a less than positive way...

    In an amazing breach of sworn neutrality, to say nothing of civility, a UN spokesperson on social media attacked the Jerusalem Post and its editor and called for a boycott of the paper. Chris Gunness, a spokesman for the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Arab refugees posted the following on his UNRWA Twitter account: Link to Twitter Gunness lost his cool over an op-ed written by a Palestinian Arab and published in the Jerusalem Post which blamed UNRWA for prolonging the suffering of his people in order to justify its existence and deepen its coffers.

    CHICAGO (CBS) – Dozens of activists staged a demonstration Friday morning at the Historic Chicago Water Tower on Michigan Avenue, calling for a boycott to protest the controversial grand jury decision in Ferguson, Missouri. With anger still simmering over the grand jury’s refusal to charge Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson with any crime for fatally shooting Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, protests have continued throughout the week across the U.S. Protesters have called for a boycott of Black Friday shopping, in an effort to call attention to what they called the inherent injustice of capitalism. “We’re in a system...

    CNN ^ | November 27, 2014 | Soledad O'Brien and Rose Arce
    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Once again, the streets are electric with anger after a white police officer evades charges for fatally shooting a black man. Sirens screech and wood batons push back marchers protesting from Missouri to New York to Los Angeles. This time the cadence of "No Justice, No Peace" has been replaced with "Hand's Up. Don't Shoot." But there was another sign raised above the crowd in a recent protest in New York: "Doing Nothing with Saying Nothing. Changes Nothing." The mathematics of this one are clear. Something's gotta give. A loose network led by African Americans in the film and arts...

    Momentum is building on social media to boycott the Black Friday sales in order to hit corporate America "where it hurts" over the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown. The Justice for Michael Brown Leadership Coalition is organising the 'No Justice, No Profit' boycott campaign on Thanksgiving Day (27 November), through to Sunday. Black Friday is traditionally the day that kicks off the Christmas buying period with retailers across America offering big discounts to jump-start the busiest shopping days of the year.

    Though it hasn’t been well-publicized, Walgreens has been donating a substantial amount of money to the LGBT movement. In 2006, the drugstore was a Platinum-Level sponsor of the Chicago “Gay Games,” which are also know as the “Gay Olympics.” The event touts itself as the “world’s largest sporting and cultural event organized by, and specifically for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT). The Wikipedia description of the “Gay Games” reveals that they were started in 1982 in San Francisco, CA, and are held every four years. Unlike the real Olympics, there are no qualifying requirements to compete, so literally anyone...

    Construction of a Coca-Cola factory in Gaza is set to begin this week after being green-lighted by Israel’s defense establishment. A major advantage of the new factory is that it will create jobs for thousands of Palestinians—first for construction builders, and then some 3,000 factory workers.The factory is to be built in the Karni industrial area. The construction period will take six months. …

    Over the past few years, General Mills has positioned itself as something like the anti-Chick-fil-A, celebrating LGBT pride and vehemently opposing Minnesota’s proposed gay marriage ban. All of that is very nice—but come on, this is 2014. If you’re a food company and you haven’t made an adorable ad featuring a gay couple with their children, you’re just another face in the pro-gay corporate crowd. Luckily, General Mills has now decided to get with the program, releasing a commercial with a gay couple, their adopted daughter, and a bowl of Cheerios. And the ad is just as impossibly cute as...
