  • Elder of Ziyon
From Ian:

Intellectuals and Terrorists
"It should be understood that the entire purpose of Chomsky’s visit to Gaza is to support the Hamas government as he intends to speak against the faltering international blockade of the terrorist state they govern. In doing so and by speaking at the Islamic University, the former MIT professor will be lending his prestige to some of the most brutal thugs in the world whose goal is not merely the destruction of Israel but the suppression of the human rights of their own people.
Though Chomsky will, as he has in the past, disclaim any responsibility for the brutish behavior of his hosts and other Palestinian friends, it is clear that this son of a great Jewish scholar is lending his seal of approval to both attacks on Jews and Israel. This is not the first example of the ongoing infatuation between leftist intellectuals and thugs who attack institutions and people those leftists abhor. But it is no less despicable for being so predictable."

Sarah Honig: Felicitations for banana-unbenders
The Nobel Peace award has finally been equated in stature and gravitas with the Napoleon prize satirically contrived in the BBC sitcom ‘Yes, Minister’.
"The Norwegian Nobel Committee, apparently out to prove that real life can rival the most side-splitting spoof, had already bestowed its peace accolades on frustrated genocide-promoter Yasser Arafat, as it did on Al Gore for scorning the ecological sins of other folks and on Barack Obama for... Well, we haven’t figured that one out yet."

Anti-Israel’ Prof. no Longer Listed as Northeastern Jewish Studies Faculty Member
"A Northeastern University professor has been removed from the online faculty list of the school’s Jewish Studies Department following the release of a video by Americans for Peace and Tolerance (APT) revealing the anti-Israel measures he took in the classroom."

Palestinians across West Bank vote for the first time in six years
Civilians cast ballots for mayors and local councils in 93 communities; Abbas hopes election will revive Fatah while Hamas boycotts the vote

BBC Watch: BBC makeover: from Terrorist to Celeb
"Does the BBC really believe that trying to create an impression of moral equivalence between a self-confessed convicted terrorist and a kidnapped conscript from a regular army does not represent a value judgement?"

Richard Millett: Former BBC Middle East correspondent Tim Llewellyn: “Zionists are scattered at strategic points throughout British business.

Belgium’s local elections cause ‘anti-Semitic flood’
On Oct. 8 Belgian Health Minister Laurette Onkelinx complained to police about a pamphlet naming Yves Goldstein, a Jewish member of her party who contended for a seat on the city council of Schaarbeek, an “enemy of Islam.” The Turkish-language pamphlet called him “an active Zionist and an enemy of Islam,” Onkelinx said at a news conference.

Drip, Drip, Drip
Daniel Hillel talks about how he helped revolutionize the way farmers water their crops
“Decades ago, the Israeli-American scientist helped develop and spread an idea called micro-irrigation agriculture. Rather than flooding the land at infrequent intervals, crops are exposed to small amounts of water in frequent or continuous doses. The result: much more efficient use of a tight water supply in arid climates.”

Keeping cyberterrorists out of our ‘digital Pearl Harbors’
Israel’s RADiFlow, a part of the RAD group, is developing equipment and software to keep utilities and infrastructure safe
“With America on the verge of experiencing a “digital Pearl Harbor” and Israel facing daily attempts to destroy its infrastructure – as described by US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described in separate speeches in recent days – it’s just a matter of time before cyberterrorists are able to reach a critical target: the systems that control basic infrastructure.”

Israel Daily Picture A Cave under the Temple Mount's Foundation Stone?
“For centuries, the Temple Mount in Jerusalem has been the focus of worshippers, scholars and explorers. But few archaeologists have explored history's secrets hidden in the caves, tunnels and cisterns beneath the Hiram el-Sharif -- controlled by the Muslim Waqf.”


Also, Bruce Bawer reads "pinkwashing" activist Sarah Schulman's book, and she's even more vacuous than we thought. (h/t Sophie44)

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون
This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 11 years and over 23,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
