  • Israel Not Such a Haven for Christians

    We hear very little about the treatment of Christians in Israel. Among the terrible persecution that Christians face in Muslim countries in the Middle East and elsewhere, Israel is usually portrayed as a beacon of tolerance where Christians are free to follow their faith without fear of being killed. Everything is relative. Looking at what happens in Israel's neighbouring countries, where Christians are forced to convert to Islam, humiliate themselves by becoming second-class citizens and paying the extortionist jizya tax, die or flee, Israel may indeed seem a good place for them to live. Israel has no policy of...

    The Economist removed a cartoon from an article on its internet edition that has been characterized as anti-Semitic. The cartoon was removed Tuesday from the weekly publication, where it ran alongside an article published on Jan. 18. The cartoon appears in the print edition of the magazine. An editor’s note appended at the end of the article titled “Negotiating with Iran: A Big Gap to Close,” about the difficulties between the United States and Iran over negotiating changes to Iran’s nuclear program, read: “The print edition of this story had a cartoon which inadvertently caused offense to some readers, so...

    Rising Turkish Menace: U.S. and NATO Ally Wants Islamic Advance in Latin America By Julio Severo The president of Turkey has re-written history by claiming Muslim explorers, not Christopher Columbus, discovered America. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan Recep Tayyip Erdogan, chief of America’s NATO ally, said November 15 that Islamic sailors found the New World in 1178. He said, “Muslims discovered America in 1178, not Christopher Columbus.” Turkey is the only Islamic nation in the NATO. His theory — which is supported only by Islamic historians — came to light in a televised speech during an Istanbul summit of...

    In an unbelievable display of stupidity, Ferguson protesters are now blaming "the Jews" for the unrest in Ferguson, the grand jury decision not to indict Darren Wilson, and even the death of Michael Brown. How the Jews are involved at are is not really mentioned; these protesters just assume that other people think the same way they do: that Jews control everything, from the government to law enforcement.

The reading of holy books in cycles that take a year (the Torah) or seven and a half years (the Talmud). And just as reliably, there’s the ritual of presidential candidates sniffing around for dough right after the midterm elections. That last one got going in earnest yesterday and today, with Senator Ted Cruz of Texas making a whirlwind tour of power Jews in New York City.

The dig, being headed by Dr. Yael Abadi Rice, found a fortified town and a military tower, from approximately 2,100 years ago. This time period was when the Second Temple was standing in Jerusalem. "It seems this was a military outpost", Dr. Rice told Tazpit News Agency. "Besides for the army stationed there, people were sent there to work the area on the road from Ashkelon to Gaza." The outpost had the military...

The rising animosity between Jordan and Israel, whose governments are tethered by a peace treaty, could undermine U.S.-led efforts to fight Islamist extremists. It also threatens a multi-billion dollar natural gas deal that is important to both countries. Jordan took the extraordinary step this month of recalling its ambassador to Israel to protest police incursions, provocative visits by Israeli politicians and the treatment...

So it's not a surprise either that John Tummon (of Left Unity) has also gone way beyond defending Muslims to now embracing all sorts of Islamic ideas and causes; including the Caliphate, the Islamic State (IS), the Ottoman Empire, the Ummah, sharia law, Islamic legal traditions and so on, although he stops short of actually quoting from the Koran or...

With good reason. Jordan was the original “Palestine”.After the brutal murder of four Rabbis, this story via Elder of Ziyon comes as no surprise at all. On Wednesday, Jordan’s parliament offered a prayer in honor of the spirit of Ghassan Abu Jamal and Uday Abu Jamal – the terrorists who slaughtered five people.The prayer was held as the House of...

    The IDF has confirmed that Hamas fired yet another rocket from Gaza towards the Red Sea Thursday morning. It is the fourth such launch in the past two days alone, part of a series of tests by the Islamist terrorist group to improve its rocket capabilities. "Moments ago, #IDF Active Defense system identified a rocket launch from central #Gaza into the sea for the 4th time in the past 24 hours," the IDF announced on its Twitter feed earlier this morning. "Indication suggests #Gaza terrorists are experimenting in order to increase rocket launching capabilities." Since the end of Operation Protective...

    Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem Jobs In The Bible Soldier (New International Version (NIV) 10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to...

    In Ferguson, Missouri, where the facts of the police shooting that killed Michael Brown have yet to be presented by the grand jury, an entire community braces for violence if the “wrong” decision is announced. While waiting, the Obama administration huddled with those who have a history of inciting racial violence and are heading to Ferguson.In Jerusalem, where the bloody trail of Jihad streams from a synagogue, the response of the Obama administration is to play the moral equivalency card between Palestinians and Israel.[SNIP]What are we seeing here? It’s very clear and utterly unsurprising. On the one hand, in Ferguson,...

    Justice Minister Tzipi Livni on Wednesday said that Israeli society is becoming more and more right-wing and religious. Speaking at a conference of the leadership of the Kibbutz movement, Livni said that while she served as foreign minister, one of her colleagues told her that in the past there were only a few countries that were not sympathetic to Israel, but in the present there are only two or three European countries that are still ready to stand up for Israel, but are finding it difficult to do so...
  • Egypt takes aim at Hamas' terror tunnels

    Critics who think Israel is taking a heavy-handed approach in destroying Hamas terror tunnels should see what Egypt has in mind. Facing the same type of underground routes out of Gaza that allowed terrorists to mount attacks on Israel, Egypt is considering creating a huge, 1,000-meter buffer zone in the Sinai Peninsula – they have already evicted 10,000 people in the process of clearing the first 500 meters -- and digging a deep-water trench that would flood any future efforts to carve subterranean routes for smuggling weapons and terrorists in and out of Gaza. And unlike the fierce resistance and...

    President Barack Obama on Tuesday strongly condemned the attack at an Israeli synagogue that killed four people, including three U.S. citizens. He called the attacks “horrific” and without justification. He said too many Israelis and too many Palestinians have died in recent months, and he urged leaders and ordinary people from both sides to work “cooperatively” to lower tensions, reject violence and seek a path forward towards peace. …

    It is hard to envisage an attack more horrific or more calculated to push Jerusalem – a city already taut with tension – to a new level of fear and antagonism. Two Palestinians, armed with meat cleavers and a gun, burst into a synagogue in west Jerusalem and slaughtered four Jews at morning prayer.

    First of all, Israel must say emphatically: the Palestinian Authority established on the basis of the Oslo Accords is an enemy entity, an enemy whose goal is establishing an Arab state in place of Israel, not alongside Israel, but on its ruins. That is the reason the Oslo Accords were violated so blatantly and thoroughly by the other side, resulting in them being declared null and void.. In addition, Israel must cease funding the PA on the basis of economic agreements derived from the Oslo Accords. There is no other country that funds an enemy entity, and there is no...

    Vienna - The United States is disappointed with Iran's failure to engage with a U.N. nuclear agency investigation into suspected atomic bomb research, a U.S. envoy said on Monday. "We've been disappointed in their failure thus far to constructively engage on this issue," Ambassador Laura Kennedy, the U.S. envoy to the Vienna-based IAEA, told reporters. Kennedy said she would convey "our concerns with Iran's failure to engage substantively with the agency on the possible military dimensions issue" in a statement to the IAEA's 35-nation Board of Governors, which convenes on Thursday.

    It should also be pointed out that the large scale airplane hijackings used by Al Qaeda on September 11 were pioneered by the PLO, though Al Qaeda received direct training in the techniques from the Iranian-backed Al Qaeda.As ABC’s Jake Tapper and a number of others have pointed out, this year Arab Muslim terrorists who operate under the “Palestinian” brand name have killed more Americans than ISIS. (via David Gerstman)While ISIS beheaded three American hostages, seven Americans have been killed ranging in age from 3-month old Chaya Zissel Braun who was a victim of Car Jihad, hurled out of...

    Syria no longer exists. The tyrannical regime of Bashar al-Assad governs parts of what’s left of it. The psychopathic Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) controls another large swath. Small scraps of territory are ruled by sundry other militias which, more likely than not, will eventually be absorbed by Assad or ISIS. Up north the Kurds have carved out a proto state of their own which they call Rojava. It is being violently squeezed by ISIS from the south, and it’s jammed up against the wall of the Turkish border to the north. It is split into three besieged...
