Netanyahu in Washington: An Eleventh-hour Plea for Sanity

netanyahu-congress-1

On Tuesday, March 3, Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu laid out in an address before a joint meeting of Congress, a compelling rebuttal to the President’s case for the phased deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran.  He diplomatically paid court to President Obama for supplying both known and secret support for the Jewish nation of Israel, and thanked him for his continued friendship.

We didn’t need Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to come tell us how big a threat a nuclear enabled Iran will be. Well-informed Americans already know that Iran’s acquisition of a nuclear weapons production capability in the hands of their apocalyptic regime will fan the flames of war in the Middle East and put the entire world at risk.

No Room in America for Christian Refugees

What can be more tragic than to lose everything in a war that has no redeeming value.
Such a war is that in Syria, where warring terrorists – from Hezbollah to ISIS – battle each other
and have declared open season on the indigenous inhabitants of once beautiful cities now in ruins. They have particularly targeted Christians, Alawites, and other minority groups, as well as local Muslims.
Yet, in the latest move by the administration to bring more immigrants to the US from Muslim countries, remaining Christians, who have been through unimaginable suffering are now being ignored in favor of their Muslim compatriots. “No room at the inn” takes on new and tragic meaning as we make way for 9,000 Muslims from Syria but not one Christian. Shame, Mr. President. Shame.  Continue reading

“Our conflict has never been about the establishment of a Palestinian state. It has always been about the existence of the Jewish state.”

Speech by Israel’s Ambassador to UN Ron Prossor at General Assembly,  November 29, 2014 with introduction by Editor

The United Nations, once the hope of nations to create an international forum based on democratic principles that would serve as a resource for peace. Instead, the UN has become an agency riddled with corruption and promoting the ideologies of nations who neither understand nor wish to comply with democratic principles.

Rabbi Fought with Terrorists, Died While Saving Others

Rabbi murdered J'm synagogueEditor’s note: You may not understand all the words (in Hebrew or Yiddish) interspersed throughout the following article, but the underlying story is deeply moving. Aryeh Kupinsky was one of the victims of the vicious massacre at a Jerusalem synagogue last week. His courage during his last moments of life saved the lives of many others and his story is a testament to his life, which in itself was an inspiration. May his memory be blessed.
____________________
At the shiva house today for R’ Aryeh Kupinsky, I heard from his brothers that Aryeh fought with the terrorists during the terror attack last week in Har Nof. He threw everything at them — shtenders/lecterns, chairs, books — everything he could get his hands on, and he physically fought with them. They said when the terrorists were finally killed by the police, there were many other injuries on the terrorists besides the gunshots which killed them — inflicted by R’ Aryeh. R’ Aryeh yelled at people to get out — while he fought with the terrorists it allowed others to escape. He did not go down without a fight, and he saved people till the end.

‘Terrorism = National Security’ as Policy: A Bad Idea

The savage attack on worshippers at a Jerusalem synagogue this week demonstrated in the most horrible and graphic manner the futility of America’s obsession with ‘peace talks’ between Israel and the so-called ‘Palestinians’. Although it has been demonstrated countless times before, in terrorist attack after terrorist attack, every American administration in recent years has adopted the flawed policies of previous administrations, creating a moral equivalence between the terrorism of non-state actors and a nation’s right to self-defense. America has built its foreign policy around it.

What they don’t seem to get is this: there is no moral equivalence between the Palestinians and the Israelis.There can be no moral equivalence between non-state terrorists who murders civilians in violent terror attacks and a sovereign state with the responsibility to provide security to it citizens. In just the last fourteen years, 1,246 Israelis, most of them civilians (including the elderly, women, and children) were killed at the hands of Palestinian terrorists. These attacks have been brutal and unprovoked. They have ranged from random attacks on individual Israelis to a mass murder at a Passover Seder in 2002, in which a suicide bomber killed 28 Israelis and injured 140 more.

Israel’s response was massive then, as it should be now, and America should be standing shoulder to shoulder with Israel, fighting the scourge of Islamist terrorism that threatens both countries. Continue reading

The Lessons Learned from Jerusalem Synagogue Attack

The attack by two Palestinian terrorists from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) early today at 7:00AM Israel Standard Time at the Kehillat Yaakov synagogue in  Jerusalem sent a shock wave through Israel and the Jewish diaspora.
Rabbi murdered J'm synagogue
The perpetrators shot and slaughtered four rabbis; three Americans and one  Briton, dual citizens,six other worshipers were wounded  at early morning minyan prayers   CNN reported:

The four killed were all rabbis: Avraham Shmuel Goldberg, 58; Aryeh Kopinsky, 43; Moshe Twersky, 59; and Calman Levine. Goldberg was a dual British-Israeli citizen, and the other three were U.S.-Israeli citizens — which is why the FBI is investigating the attack, according to a U.S. law enforcement official.

An arm of a Jewish worshipper wrapped in tefillin (phylacteries) was chopped off by one of the two assailants. Blood according to one of the eyewitnesses was splattered over the pews, prayer books and prayer shawls or tallit of the dead and wounded. Continue reading

To the Students for Justice in Palestine, a Letter From an Angry Black Woman

The student organization Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) is prominent on many college campuses, preaching a mantra of “Freeing Palestine.” It masquerades as though it were a civil rights group when it is not. Indeed, as an African-American, I am highly insulted that my people’s legacy is being pilfered for such a repugnant agenda. It is thus high time to expose its agenda and lay bare some of the fallacies they peddle. Continue reading

Was Assad Responsible for the Sarin Gas Attacks in 2013? Or Was It ISIS?

Was Assad Responsible for the Sarin Gas Attacks in 2013

Victims of Sarin Gas attack in Ghouta, Syria vicinity, August 21, 2013 Source: Reuters

In a recent special MERIA report, Jon Spyer reported on the probable ISIS Chemical Weapons  (CW) attack that killed Kurdish YPG fighters in the village of Avdiko near Kobani, Syria, It was reminiscent of the mid-2013 gas attacks on civilian population centers in Syria, one of which killed 1,500 in the suburbs of Damascus. The attacks were generally considered by world leaders and analysts to have been perpetrated by the Assad regime.  There is, however, considerable evidence indicating that those horrific attacks may not have been perpetrated by Assad at all, but, in fact, they were most likely the work of ISIS.

Recent experience with ISIS demonstrates their willingness to behave far beyond the capabilities of any other terrorist organization. Moreover, the situation in Syria is extremely complex, to the point of being bewildering to the Western mind. To oversimplify the events that take place in this strange and deadly war is both foolish and dangerous. Continue reading
