Dore Gold: Still bickering over Balfour
Nabil Shaath wanted his British readers last year to believe that the process that began with the Balfour Declaration in 1917 and ending up with the British Mandate in 1922 created the Jewish claim to a homeland. For him the Jewish homeland was entirely invented by British imperial interests and had no historical roots. In short, it was an illegitimate claim.
But that is a distortion of what happened for what was involved at the time was a British recognition of a pre-existing right.
Moreover that British recognition was fully accepted by the international community by 1922, through the League of Nations.
'Sovereignty' - Israeli Right's Answer to a 'Two State Solution'
While speakers at the "One State for One People" conference earlier this month emphasized the need for the immediate annexation and full application of Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria - despite the area's large Arab population - an earlier conference discussed an alternative "Two-State Solution", which involved the empowerment and recognition of Jordan's Palestinian Arab majority.
Within that context, the new Sovereignty journal "aspires... to take another step toward conceptual and practical implementation of the Zionist alternative to the failed two-state vision that the Left has been presenting for decades," according to a statement by the Women in Green.
JPost Editorial: The boycott folly
Legal experts are split on whether it is illegal for individuals to live in such territory of their own free will, particularly when they displace nobody. Furthermore, the West Bank did not come into Israel’s possession as an occupying power, because the land did not belong to any sovereign power. The Jordanian annexation of the area in 1949, which many Palestinians consented to – including those who rejected the 1947 UN Partition Resolution, which would have created a Palestinian state – remained unrecognized by the rest of the world. After its victory in 1967, Israel had as good a claim to the West Bank as anyone, if not a better one, considering that the 1922 League of Nations Mandate for Palestine recognized the Jews’ deep ties to Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem.
J Street, New Israel Fund slam ADL for Top 10 anti-Israel list
Two major left-wing groups issued a stinging denouncement of the Anti-Defamation League’s list of “Top 10 Anti-Israel Groups in America” Wednesday, arguing that the lineup “exacerbates unnecessary confrontation” in an increasingly polarized Jewish community and that the choice of organizations cited was “shortsighted and unproductive.”
Why is the Upper West Side JCC Supporting Israel’s Enemies?
Extreme behavior like this represents a minuscule percentage among Israelis – or Jews anywhere in the world – but for the JCC to provide them with a forum is really absurd.
Zionist leader Berl Katznelson once asked, “Is there another People on Earth so emotionally twisted that they consider everything their nation does despicable and hateful, while every murder, rape, robbery committed by their enemies fill their hearts with admiration and awe?” Could anyone imagine an Italian Cultural Center showing movies that mock and harm their people?
The tiny State of Israel has enough enemies and challenges. This Upper West Side resident says shame on the Jewish Community Center.
Mens rea at Ha’aretz
Were this the first attempt by Ha’aretz’s writers and editors to shoe horn Palestine into a story and some how politicise a totally apolitical event, some of us in “unhinged corners of the Internet” might buy this explanation
Reporters make mistakes. Editors fail to catch the mistakes of reporters, and can introduce new errors of their own.
However we don’t. We can remember when Ha’aretz came up with a false land grab story, retracted a story about a ban on Arabic at a hospital or moved Israel’s capital from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv. Or any of the other 570 results CAMERA has for Ha’aretz. We remember damaging and malicious mistranslations of Hebrew and their lies about forced birth control on immigrants.
India 'Briefed Israel on Danger to Rajasthan Tourists'
Israel was briefed last month about a possible Indian Mujahideen attack against its citizens who visit the Rajasthan region of India, Indian home ministry and Israeli sources told the Hindustan Times Wednesday.
"The threats against Israelis are being seen as further evidence that a section of the Indian Mujahideen has adopted the pan-Islamicist agenda of al Qaeda," the newspaper reported.
Israeli Arab Woman Loses Nazareth Mayoral Bid in Landslide to Christian Incumbent
Israeli Arab politician, Haneen Zoabi, lost her bid to become Nazareth's first new mayor in 20 years. Zoabi, who ran against incumbent, Ramiz Jaraisi, who has been the city's mayor for almost two decades, only won 3,812 [10.4%] votes. Jararisi, a Christian, received 43.37 percent of the total.
Some of Zoabi's detractors said her Tuesday night loss was down to the fact that she is out touch with the people that she represented.
"PLO's Zoabi loses mayoral race in Nazareth because Israeli Arabs know she doesnt care about them," tweeted IsraelRadioGuy, a pro-Zionist blogger.
"Hanin Zoabi's crushing defeat in Nazareth to incumbent mayor proves Arab Israeli city not interested in her politics of hate and division," tweeted YaakovLappin, a journalist for The Jerusalem Post. (h/t Yoel)
BBC WS programme on women in military combat roles ignores one country
The synopsis of a BBC World Service radio programme titled “Women on the Frontline” which was broadcast on October 22nd 2013 informs audiences that its presenter Emma Barnett:
examines which countries in the world do allow women to serve, and contrasts the experiences of these three women to present a picture of life for women on the military front line.”
Whilst the list of countries in which women serve in combat roles as provided by Barnett is extensive and numbers some fourteen states, the only country in which women are conscripted and in which 92% of positions are open to them is excluded from her list.
Sharpton Compares Himself to Holocaust Survivor Elie Wiesel
Only the deeply self-obsessed and delusional Sharpton would compare himself to Wiesel, and his race-baiting to Wiesel’s legacy of anti-genocidal activity -- especially given Sharpton’s own record of anti-Semitism.

Boston Area Schools Called Out Over Anti-Israel Materials
The Boston-based nonprofit Americans for Peace and Tolerance (APT) took out the ads in the Boston Globe, Boston Herald,Newton Tab, Boston Metro, and Jewish Advocate. The ads cover research by concerned parents and students that has revealed the presence of anti-Israel texts in Newton schools including “The Arab World Studies Notebook,” which claims that Israeli soldiers murdered hundreds of Palestinian nurses in Israeli prisons; “A Muslim Primer,” which claims that astronaut Neil Armstrong converted to Islam, but that the anti-Muslim U.S. government warned him “to keep his new religion to himself or he could be fired” from his government job; “Flashpoints: Guide to World History,” which asserts that Tel Aviv, not Jerusalem, is the capital of Israel, and that Jerusalem is the capital of “Palestine”; and other materials.
An Open Letter to Jerry Seinfeld and Jon Stewart: Boycott Roger Waters

Turning toilet trash into toilet paper
In addition to benefiting from the savings on processing, the city also saved money on energy costs because it used the resulting Recyllose as a biofuel to power the treatment plant. In addition, the study showed, the city realized significant environmental benefits, including a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, a reduction in the use of chemicals to treat wastewater, and a drastic decline in noxious odors from the plant.

IDF Blog: 40 Years Since the Yom Kippur War #4: The Ceasefire
