Latma Satire Star Survives Rock Terror Ambush
Ronit Avrahamof Shapira, known to many as Ronit the newscaster from Youtube political satire Latma, survived a road ambush by rock-throwing terrorists Sunday night. She was in the family car that was being driven by her husband, Eliezer (“Leizi”), and their small children.
Shapira told the tale on her Facebook page.
"The rock terror has reached us, the Shapira family, too. An Arab terrorist tried to murder us too, tonight.
"We were traveling in our car in Samaria, at 10:00 p.m. Leizi identifies rocks on the road, understands what is happening. He shouts to me, to protect our babies in the back seat, and as fast as the speed of light, a stone (Not just any stone. Think of a large rock, and now think bigger. Something the size of a nice grapefruit) smashes the window next to me.
Barry Rubin: As Slander and Hatred Mount: Where is the Rallying for Israel
Melchett concludes with a story about his father when they visited Babylon in the 1920s. In referring to the battle that was still being engaged in, the senior Mond said:
“You see, had it not been the case centuries ago, that some small proportion of our people were prepared to return to [the land of Israel], to be the Zionists of that day, we should all have perished in the civilizations that perished with Babylon. It is only because of those few who returned at that time, that you and I are able to stand here and look upon these ruins. And where are those that took us into captivity in Babylon?” (h/t Norman F)
The Saga of Ancient ‘Palestinian Susiya’ – The Town That Never Was
The Arab strategy: An Arab family erects a tent, illegally, near the archaeological site of the ancient town of Susiya. As time passes, the tent becomes a makeshift structure, which expands into several structures. With the support of extreme left-wing activists, the ‘ancient’ town of ‘Palestinian Susiya’ is invented, reported the Tazpit News Agency.
“This makes for a great human interest story, but for one setback – the ‘ancient Palestinian Susiya’ never existed. It shows up on no records,” Tazpit wrote.?
Claire Berlinski: The Gezi Diaries: Can We Still Call Turkey Civilized?
Some see it as a modern democracy with an Islamic tint, an improving, reforming country. But if you were in Istanbul during the last month and a half, you’d have seen something completely different: a violent, authoritarian, increasingly suppressive and brutal regime. Tales from the Dark Side, Turkish style.
Jordanians Protest Imports from Israel, But Amman May Import Gas
Jordanians in Amman have been protesting against imports from Israel, but may not be aware their government has quietly been discussing the option of taking on another new import as well: the purchase of Israeli natural gas.
Protesters in Jordan gathered in Amman’s central vegetable market on Saturday calling on the government to ban imports from Israel.
The Jordanian Higher Committee to Protect the Homeland and Resist Normalization had organized the demonstration, gathering activists and members of professional associations and political parties.
Jewish history, saved one frame at a time
When Barbra Streisand needed visual inspiration to create shtetl sets for “Yentl,” there was only one place she could call.
Since 1976, the National Center for Jewish Film (NCJF) has bridged the divide between a lost Yiddish world and contemporary Jewish filmmaking. In addition to restoring and distributing forgotten classics of Yiddish cinema, the center represents Jewish filmmakers in the US, Israel and elsewhere.
WATCH: The film that saved the wall
This film (nineteen minutes in) depicts the first-ever scenes of Jews praying at the Western Wall in Jerusalem, according to the Spielberg Jewish Film Archive.
On July 1, 1930, three League of Nation’s commissioners watched the above footage. The evidence it presented acted to formally mark Jewish rights to the Western Wall, redrawing boundaries that had been maintained since Ottoman times and cementing the wall in its place as the epicenter of today’s conflict.
This historic and rare footage of Palestine depicts men and women at the Western Wall, the women covered in head-scarfs and long dresses, praying freely next to pious men - with no separator in between them.
Herzl’s ties to the red, white and blue
Wednesday, July 3, marks the 109th anniversary of the death of Theodor Herzl. In the US the Yiddish newspapers’ headlines rang out in 1904: “Our Prince has Fallen.” In seven brief but intense years of activity, Herzl fashioned the building blocks upon which the Jewish state, Israel, became a reality.
Previously unknown in Jewish circles in Europe and America, until his first book, AltNeuland, “OldNew Land,” appeared in 1894, he went about weaving a coalition of secular and religious Jews together with noted world leaders and committed Christians so that his project, a homeland for the Jews, could get off the ground. In his feverish period of activity, he proved that “if you will it, it is no dream.”
Israel Daily Picture: The Amazing Portraits of Shlomo and Sonia Narinsky
Jewish Photographers Exiled by the Turks, Swept Up by the Nazis
Born in the Ukraine in 1885, Shlomo Narinsky studied art in Moscow, Paris and Berlin before moving to Palestine where he set up a studio.
In 1916, Shlomo and his wife were exiled to Egypt by the Turkish rulers.
They returned to the Land of Israel after the British captured the territory in 1918.
A vision for Eye from Zion
Founded in 2007, Eye from Zion provides free medical treatment to needy populations around the world, specifically oculoplastic, cataract and cross-eye corrective surgeries. To date, delegations have worked in Vietnam, Myanmar and Ethiopia. The organization’s mission is “to give the best medical aid, and at the same time, deliver a message of mutual humanitarian aid in the spirit and values of the State of Israel and of the Jewish Heritage.”
Claire visits robotic suit creators in Israel
PARAPLEGIC London Marathon hero Claire Lomas has travelled to Israel to visit the company that made her amazing feat possible.
The 32-year-old, who is paralysed from the chest down, was able to complete the London Marathon last year over a period of 16 days, thanks to a robotic ReWalk suit.
In February Claire, of Eye Kettleby, got to meet the suit’s inventor Amit Goffer and after explaining the difference it had made to her life, was invited to Israel to find out more about it.
