New Video Shows Palestinians, Left Wing Activists Cutting Down Olive Trees
"A new video entitled “Harvesting Incitement” released by the Shomron Regional Council today on YouTube purports to show Palestinians and left-wing activists cutting down olive trees in a tactic meant to frame West Bank settlers as the perpetrators according to an unnamed witness in the video. “They cut down these trees to start a fire in the media or in their ovens. It’s suspicious because it comes close to the Jewish settlements. They get close enough it becomes a security problem as well,” the witness says."

Jordan: King Abdullah Losing the Support of Tribes? by Khaled Abu Toameh
The Jordanian tribe is now planning a huge rally against Israel, with whom it has a peace treaty. Other tribes have been invited to join the rally, posing a major and unprecedented challenge to the monarchy.

EU Wins ‘Nobel Appeasement Prize’
"There is nothing that I can think of that would recommend giving this honor to a bunch of unelected bureaucrats sitting in Brussels. All too often, the EU’s foreign policy interventions have been marked by cowardice."

France as a Palestinian Camp - Old Fuhrer, New Furors
"More important is that French mainstream is also guilty for what is happening to the Jews. Palestinian terrorists are daily called “militants” and Flotilla jihadists are turned into “humanitarians” by the intellectuals, while the tribunals easily pardon the Jew-killers, who are always labelled as “youths”. To quote Pierre-Andre Taguieff, they "dissolve the anti-Jewish acts in a rising tide of delinquency".

French Jews denounce 'anti-Semitic' flood on Twitter
French anti-racist and Jewish organisations on Monday condemned what they called a wave of anti-Semitism sweeping over the micro-blogging site Twitter using the hashtag #unbonjuif (a good Jew).

European satellite axes Iran's anti-Semitic channels

Iran cracks down on underground 'illegal' churches
Iranian media reports blame "Zionist propaganda" for targeting vulnerable Muslims, converting them to Christianity.

Do you Support Arab Progress? Then, Listen to Genuine Arab Liberals & Reject Guardian’s Analysis
"If you want to know how best to advocate for hundreds of millions of Arabs – at least those genuinely supporting a real democratic “Spring” – you can begin by reviewing the Guardian’s coverage of the region and adopting a political persuasion based on the complete opposite of what you read."

Washington Should Play the Funding Card on PA’s UN bid
"UNESCO director Irina Bokova griped publicly last week about how much her organization is suffering from the U.S. funding cutoff sparked by its admission of “Palestine” last year. That provides Washington with real leverage to foil the Palestinian Authority’s planned bid for UN General Assembly recognition as a nonmember observer state later this fall. Incredibly, however, the administration doesn’t seem to be making use of it."

Israelis in south told to stay close to bomb shelters
Al-Qaida jihadists in Gaza and Sinai vow to avenge Israel's killing of their chief. Egyptian military on alert for booby-trapped cars approaching security installations. IDF raises alert level near Egypt border area and along major southern highway.

The Attacks on Israelis You Won’t Read About Anywhere Else, October 7-12

Depeche Mode, the legendary British synth-pop band, will perform in Israel next year.


Henry Clifford's deceptive ads return to Metro North. CAMERA demolishes them. Years ago, CAMERA also showed how the Dayan quote had been taken out of context.

New iPhones snapped up in Gaza despite high prices, poverty
Prices ranged from 4,500 Israeli shekels ($1,170) for the 16 gigabyte model to 5,700 ($1,480) for 64 gb.

"I ordered 30 and I've sold 20 so far," said one dealer. "We can order as many as we want."
HuffPo has a terribly titled but very good article that sums up the huge amount of archaeological and historic evidence that Jews lived in ancient Israel, unlike how Arabs like to pretend they didn't.

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 12 years and over 25,000 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.
