    as everyone has heard today, a suspect was apprehended in Israel today for making threatening calls to JCCs around the country. Unlike the Muslims, I will not argue for leniency or mercy for him on account of colonialism/imperialism/Zionism, nor will I do what a lot of blacks do by blaming bad behavior on slavery/Jim Crow. Whatever his motive, rape him, do whatever to him in prison and I'll laugh at him. What likely IS the culprit is the plague of Jewish self-hatred. I've seen it from the time I was a kid to the present, and this loser is an...

    For the second time in the past month, the Forward has chosen to sully the reputation of Dr. Sebastian Gorka — a key member of White House staff — weaponizing its platform in favor of an innuendo-laden assault upon an individual with whom it disagrees politically. The Forward piece is a display of naked political purposes: Gorka, it seems, is guilty not only as a collaborationist with the Trump regime — the Forward published a puff piece about “the Jewish couple leading the Trump resistance” the day before it first slandered Gorka - but of the presumptive hate crimes of...

    Israel’s national baseball team upset Cuba 4-1 in the World Baseball Classic, continuing its unlikely run in the tournament. After falling behind 1-0 in the second inning Sunday, Israel took control of the game, driving in four consecutive runs and holding the heavily favored Cuban team to just five hits. The game was the first of the second round and gave Israel a 4-0 record in the international tournament. Israel was the lowest-ranked team to qualify for the showcase tournament, coming in at 41st in the world. But last week in the first round, the team squeaked past third-ranked South...

If he is elected, I will quit the party after 60 years of loyal association and voting.

  • Muslim Immigration is a Serious Danger to American Jews

    Islam is a threat to both Jews and Christians. But Islam is a greater threat to Jews, than it is to Christians. The Muslim holy books known as the Hadiths, call on Muslims to wage genocidal war on Jews, even when Jews hide behind rocks and trees. See Sahih al-Bukhari Vol.4 Book 56 No. 791, Book 52 No. 176 & 177, Sahih Muslim book 41 No. 6981 & 6983 and etc. The instructions to wage genocidal war on Jews are repeated in several Hadiths, and Christians are not specifically targeted for genocide in the Hadiths in the same manner.

But they were sure if Trump did not do it, then some of his supporters did and everyone knows that. The further from St. Louis you get, the less insane that sounds. Because in St. Louis, large-scale vandalism and criminality is a black thing -- not a political thing.   The Trump tombstone desecration was just the warmup. Chris and the Goofy Looking Dude said Trump...

    Something new is happening before our eyes. Radicals are completing a takeover of the Democratic Party. Sure, there’s been a lot of mockery among conservatives about hyperventilating Democrats. Pundits point out the obvious: that Democrats screaming that Trump is illegitimate deliver no positive message for working class voters who want jobs and that mobs in black masks are not appealing. Such analyses fall short. After 8 years of exploiting and enflaming the grievances of identity politics, the Democratic Party is being eaten by the monster they rode to power. Radicals don’t need to be a majority – they never are....

    Steve Feinstein’s recent article, “Why American Jews Are Overwhelmingly Liberal,” omitted a crucial part of the story: its conclusion.  While I do not take issue with the article’s facts, the truth is that a wave of conservatism, based on religious values, has been deeply cultivated and is robustly emerging on a major scale in the most vibrant and enduring segments of American Jewry. Studies have demonstrated that America’s secular and mostly liberal Jewish population is shrinking and disappearing, as a result of intermarriage and abandonment of Jewish identity and tradition.  Liberal Jewish congregations are dwindling and shutting down, and...

    Washington President Donald Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court on Tuesday night, fulfilling his campaign promise to nominate a documented judicial conservative to the nation's justiceship. Gorsuch currently serves as a judge on the US Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. If confirmed by the Senate, he will take the seat of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, considered a lion of the law and a hero of the political Right. Scalia died over a year ago, leaving a vacancy on the nine-judge court. But Republican Senate leadership refused to entertain then-president Barack Obama's choice for...

    Should the mainstream media lead, to borrow a term from religion, a great awakening? Yes, in a sense, suggested longtime journalist Steven Waldman in a Thursday Washington Monthly piece. “Donald Trump and his campaign have pushed the idea that each of us has our own truth, or ‘alternative facts,’” wrote Waldman. “Suddenly I feel like journalists are the most religious people in America. I don’t mean that journalists are suddenly enamored with the supernatural, but rather that we’ve re-embraced the idea that there’s a thing called ‘truth’ — an absolute value that lives above and apart from the world of...

A regional court has upheld the decision of a lower court, also agreeing that the actions of these Muslim men were not antisemitic.

Each of these questions is important when it comes to understanding the ongoing conflict in the Middle East and the centuries of hate and suffering endured by the children of Israel.

Staffers, journalists and other officials were gathered in the ornate Benjamin Franklin salon at the State Department on Dec. 14 for early Christmas festivities. But the secretary of State was nowhere to be seen. Kerry was on the telephone to various world leaders, trying to find out about a major diplomatic meeting — from which the United States had been excluded. The gathering, which sought to broker a resolution to the devastating Syrian conflict, took place six days later in Moscow and involved the foreign ministers of Russia, Iran and Turkey.

Today, there are a similar number of Jews and Palestinians living between the Jordan river and the Mediterranean Sea. They have a choice. They can choose to live together in one...

    Netanyahu: "Israel has national pride. We do not turn the other cheek" NEW YORK - With President Barack Obama's direction, last Friday the United States departed from its long-held position of vetoing a United Nations resolution that condemned Israel's settlements. The action outraged lawmakers on both sides of the aisle. Prime Minister Netanyahu strongly condemned the United Nations resolution and expressed disappointment that the United States abandoned its previous support. Monday he said "Israel has national pride. We do not turn the other cheek." He suggested over the weekend that Israel may consider pulling out of the U.N. U.S. Senator...

    The Jewish Festival of Lights will commence at sundown on Saturday. But even for those who will be lighting the candles on the menorah there may well be some confusion over just how to spell the name of the holiday. Is it Hanukkah or Chanukah? The truth is there is no right or wrong answer. They are both translations of a Hebrew word meaning “dedication” or “consecration.” The holiday was given that name because of its celebration of the rededication of the Holy, or Second, Temple by the Maccabean Jews after it had been desecrated by the Hellenistic Seleucid Empire...

John Kasich and urge him to veto a bill that would ban almost all abortions after an unborn baby’s heart begins to beat, the Cleveland Jewish News reports. The Ohio state legislature recently gave final approve to legislation that would ban all abortions after an unborn baby’s heart begins to beat. The Ohio House and Senate also approved the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (S.B. 127), landmark legislation which poses a historic challenge to Roe v. Wade. The bills now head to the desk of...

Based on news reports, you would think that blacks were 4.5 times more likely than Jews to be the...

    This is the post-election lecture by Rabbi Yosef Mizrachi. It's long but very important. There are some statements made regarding various Jewish movements. Don't let that deter you, as you may agree with the other 98% of what he says. Mashiach is mentioned. Many American rabbis are having a similar conversation with their communities. This is a Jewish caucus thread. If you don't consider yourself a Jew, don't post in this thread. No 'witnessing' will be tolerated, so if you aren't a Jew and wish to participate in this thread, send me a FReepmail and I'll ping you to the...

    Francois Fillon, a leading contender in the upcoming French presidential election, suggested Jews do not respect French law. Fillon, a former prime minister who this week won the first round of the presidential primary in France’s center-right Republicans party, made the assertion during an interview Wednesday with Europe1 radio, in which he cited Jews as proof that Muslims may become better integrated. “I think that sectarianism is increasing today within the Muslim community and that the sectarianists are taking that community hostage,” said Fillon. “We need to combat this sectarianism and we need to do it as we have in...

    (RNS) Tackling a delicate issue as it begins its yearlong celebration of the Reformation’s 500th anniversary, Germany’s main Protestant church has officially renounced its mission to convert Jews to Christianity. In practice, the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD), made up of 20 regional Lutheran, Reformed and United churches, mostly gave up efforts to convert Jews in the decades after the Holocaust, and closing that chapter should have been a formality. But officially abandoning the “Judenmission,” or Mission to the Jews, turned out to be theologically complicated. In Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus gave his Apostles the Great Commission to “make disciples of...
