Another scandalous session of the UNHRC By Anne Bayefsky
It is opening week of another session of the UN’s top human rights body, the UN Human Rights Council, and anti-Semitism will once again be promoted around the globe via an organization built on the ashes of the Jewish people and sworn to hatred’s eradication.
Fighting anti-Semitism with subtlety - and vision
Analyzing this soft anti-Semitism, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, the former US ambassador to the UN and New York’s liberal Democratic Senator for 24 years, lamented decades ago that “anti-Semitism has become a unifying global ideology of the totalitarian Left. An intense propaganda campaign, begun in the Soviet Union in the 1970s... was designed to undermine the legitimacy of the State of Israel by explicitly compar[ing] Zionism to Nazism.”
PM lashes out at ‘anti-Semitic’ Israel critics
“What is fashionable today is to say: ‘Well, I don’t hate Jews – I just don’t think they should have a state’ or, effectively, that their state is an illegitimate one that doesn’t have a right to exist,” said Netanyahu, asserting that to deny the Jewish people’s right to a state was anti-Semitic.
France arrests six in connection to Toulouse shooting
French police on Tuesday arrested six men suspected of being accomplices of Islamist terrorist Mohammed Merah.
Four of the suspects were arrested in Toulouse, where last March the 23-year-old radical shot and killed a rabbi and three Jewish children outside their school, just days after killing three French soldiers
French university slammed for play featuring Goldberg, the greedy money dealer
She was reacting to a statement by Richard Prasquier, former president of the CRIF umbrella organization of French Jewish communities, who said a theater play entitled “Your Children’s Role in the Global Economic Recovery” was “grossly anti-Semitic.”
“How else would one describe a play in which a greedy money dealer called Goldberg presses a family to invest their life savings in repugnant causes,” Prasquier wrote. He added that the play included a reference to two Nazi-hunters named “Cohen 1 and Cohen 2,” who abandon their cause for cash.
Robert De Niro to visit Israel in June
Robert De Niro, considered one of the greatest American actors of all times, will arrive in Israel next month to attend the Israeli Presidential Conference and take part in President Shimon Peres' 90th birthday celebrations, Yedioth Ahronoth has learned.
Anything’s possible
Yityish “Titi” Aynaw was crowned this year as the first Ethiopian-born Miss Israel.
She was also picked by The Jerusalem Post last week as one of the 50 most influential Jews in the world. Aynaw joins a list that includes Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, the US Treasury Secretary, the founder of Google, and supermodel Bar Rafaeli. The fact that Aynaw appears on this list is proof that immigrants are successfully integrating into Israeli society.
University of Haifa to mark Christian, Arab holidays
The University of Haifa will become the first Israeli university to give days off to the student body for Christian and Arab holidays.
The university senate voted Sunday to give off for Christmas; Eid al-Fitr, the end of Ramadan; and Eid al-Adha, the Druze Feast of the Sacrifice, Haaretz reported. A special committee with student representation had recommended the action.
Righteous Gentile Honored Following Work of Kansas Teens
A walkway in Warsaw has been named in honor of a Polish woman who is credited with saving 2,5000 Jewish children during the Holocaust, after students in Kansas succeeded in bringing the story of the righteous gentile to the attention of Polish officials.
Jewish Writer Howard Jacobson Presented with a Pig at Literary Festival (VIDEO)
Jacobson, who is British, was presented with a pet pig at the Telegraph Hay Festival as part of his winnings for the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse prize for comic fiction.
Speaking to a reporter, Jacobson said that as a Jew, he took no umbrage with the Festival’s choice of gift.
Top 12 new fruit and vegetables species developed in Israel
Since the first half of the 20th century, Israeli agricultural wizards have been partnering with Mother Nature to bring new fruit and vegetable varieties to the global market, from vividly colored squash to seedless peppers.
Every year, Israel exports more than $2 billion worth of produce – tomatoes are its fourth-largest commodity — and is among the world’s top developers of better-looking, better-tasting, disease-resistant and more nutritious varieties.
Qatar seeking to bolster trade ties with Israel
Coming to promote high-tech cooperation, Prince Khalifa Al-Thani’s upcoming visit will mark the first official stopover in Israel by Qatar royalty.
Controlling Emergency Relief from the Sheltered War Room
However, there is another side to air raid drills, and that is a practice session for the emergency services that would be needed in case the drills turned into reality.
Magen David Adom (MDA), Israel's national emergency rescue service, relied upon for ambulance and cardiac emergency needs, took the opportunity to practice their war routines very seriously. Arutz Sheva went to MDA's sheltered war emergency control room to see how the preparation for response to ABC - atomic, biological and chemical - attacks is organized.

Israel Daily Picture: Journal Article Abstract: The Zionist Message Hidden within Antique Pictures of the Holy Land
A 110-year-old trove of pictures taken by the Christian photographers of the American Colony in Jerusalem provides dramatic proof of thriving Jewish communities in Palestine.
Hundreds of pictures show the ancient Jewish community of Jerusalem’s Old City and the Jewish pioneers and builders of new towns and settlements in the Galilee and along the Mediterranean coastline. The American Colony photographers recorded Jewish holy sites, holiday scenes and customs, and they had a special reason for focusing their lenses on Yemenite Jews.
