Israel: The first modern indigenous state
Just as black people struggled for their rights and basic human dignity during the American Civil Rights Movement, so the Jews continue to struggle for our rights and basic human dignity within our 3,500 year old national home. Just as native peoples everywhere seek to free themselves from the negative influence of hostile conquering populations, so the Jews of the Middle East seek to free themselves from the never-ending hostility of their former masters in that part of the world.
The so-called “Palestinian national movement” is not a national movement of an indigenous people. It is a national movement designed specifically to overthrow the indigenous people and replace that people with the very people who conquered them and held them in something akin to servitude (dhimmitude) for thirteen long centuries.
Like indigenous peoples throughout the world, the Jewish people, too, are worthy of self-determination and self-defense.
Actress Meryl Streep Blasts Walt Disney as Anti-Semitic; ZOA Condemns Actress Emma Thompson
Hollywood actress Meryl Streep blasted Walt Disney as an anti-Semitic misogynist in an unusually long and scathing speech at a film awards dinner on Tuesday night, Variety reported on Thursday.
Ironically, Streep’s nine-minute speech was to honor the actress who portrayed ‘Mary Poppins’ creator P.L. Travers in The Walt Disney Company’s ‘Saving Mr. Banks,’ Emma Thompson, who the Zionist Organization of America denounced on Thursday for her letter in the Guardian advocating for a boycott of Israel’s Habima Theater troupe, which is to perform later this year at Shakespeare’s Globe Theater, in London.
Nelson Mandela: Co-opted, Re-mixed and Re-delivered
Anti-Israel activists deliberately manipulated footage of Nelson Mandela, speaking at a 1990 Town Hall meeting anchored by Ted Koppel on ABC Nightline in New York, in an effort to eliminate his declaration "The support for Yassir Arafat in his struggle does not mean that the ANC has ever doubted the right of Israel to exist as a state. We have stood quite openly and firmly for the right of that state to exist within secured borders"
Lies. Manipulation. Selective editing. Could these ethically bankrupt anti-Israeli propagandists stoop any lower?

Former head of pro-Palestinian student group accused of hate speech over violent martyrdom posts on Facebook
A pro-Israel group says it has complained to Calgary police over Facebook comments made by a former university student group president who urged Palestinians to ‘‘spill blood.’’
“My body and soul are ready to fight and die,” wrote Ala’a Hamdan, former president of Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights, a University of Calgary student group. “This land will be proud that Palestinian babies are born men and women ready to spill their blood.”
In a battle hymn written to a son, Ms. Hamdan wrote: “I will soak a koffiah with your blood and save it to show to your siblings … I will be named the mother of the martyr.“
Hussein Ibish Bashes Columnist Jeff Jacoby as He Searches for Missing Son
Twitter was alight on Thursday with angry reactions to American Task Force on Palestine Senior Fellow Hussein Ibish, who bashed Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby, as the writer works to mobilize the city of Boston to search for his 16-year old son Caleb, who went missing on Monday.
“Jeff Jacoby is a hateful fanatic, but I very much hope his son is quickly found safe and sound,” Ibish tweeted, linking to an article about the search for Caleb.
Max Blumenthal Showing Compassion
The entire world was praying for Caleb’s return. So was Max Blumenthal. He was praying he could use a much-awaited news story to further his aim: the destruction of his own people and his own land.
A really strange way of showing compassion.
Dutch FM: We are opposed to divestment, sanctions
Dutch Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans said in a television interview Friday that the Netherlands opposes divestment from Israel, as well as sanctions against the Jewish state.
“That has been the policy for years,” said Timmermans, according to the Dutch News website.
The announcement came on the same day that Israel’s Foreign Ministry summoned the Dutch ambassador to Jerusalem for a clarification on the PGGM pension fund’s decision to divest from Israel.
BBC promotes unverified claims from terror groups as news
In that 124 word report, ninety-two words are used to present assorted versions of the story of the death of Mohammed al Ijla (also Ijlah or Ejlla in other reports) put out by the spokesman for the Hamas-run Gaza Health Ministry, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (to which al Ijla belonged as a member of the Al Quds Brigades) and the family.
Thirty-two words are used to present the statement made by the IDF clarifying that there was no Israeli activity in the area at the time.
Mein Kampf ebook surging in popularity
Various ebook English-language editions of Adolf Hitler’s magnum opus, “Mein Kampf,” first published in German in 1928, have over the last year become among the most downloaded political science tracts online.
On Amazon alone, there are over 10 different e-versions of the book, with one of them, a $.99 version, holding the #1 spot in the “Propaganda & Political Psychology” category. On Archive.org, a free ebook version has been downloaded over 100,000 times. The book has also been popular on iTunes.
Ban on French anti-Semitic comedian may be start of long legal drama
A French comic who is considered anti-Semitic was banned from performing Thursday night just hours after a court in Nantes said he could go ahead with his show.
As conflicting rulings by French authorities over Dieudonne M’Bala M’Bala’s act sowed widespread confusion, riot police carrying shields blocked access to the Zenith theater in the western city of Nantes.
Thousands of stunned ticket-holders in the nearly sold-out show chanted and hissed.
Who are these people?
As an American I can’t imagine a disgusting “comedian” like Dieudonné, who gets laughs from mocking the near-extermination of Europe’s Jews, appealing to any more than a psychologically-damaged fringe of neo-Nazis.
So who (sociologically speaking) are these young French fans of his who have turned out for his performances in their thousands– until his shows were banned on Thursday?
The Race-Baiting Antisemite Amiri Baraka’s Death, and How the Obits Treat Him
The African-American poet Amiri Baraka (born Everett Leroi Jones) died yesterday. Already, the press is whitewashing — or should I say, in deference to the deranged late race hater, blackwashing — his real record of obscenity.
Leading the charge, naturally, is NPR, whose obituary tells us that he was “controversial,” and that he “co-founded the Black Arts Movement of the 1960s. His literary legacy is as complicated as the times he lived through, from his childhood — where he recalled not being allowed to enter a segregated library — to the 2001 attack on the World Trade Center. His poem about that attack, ‘Somebody Blew Up America,’ quickly became infamous.”
‘Let Him Burn in Hell’: Sharon’s Deteriorating Condition Celebrated on Polish Websites
In Poland, the story of Sharon’s worsening condition is being covered extensively. Several heavily trafficked Polish websites reporting on the Sharon story have been deluged with anti-Semitic remarks, aimed at the former Israeli premier in particular as well as the entire Jewish people, Ma’ariv said.
German movie on boy's Holocaust survival premieres in Poland
A German-French co-production featuring mostly Polish actors, "Run, Boy, Run" is the true story of 10-year-old Yoram Friedman who escaped the Warsaw ghetto in 1943 and -- hunted by the Nazis -- hid in the forest near the city. The boy fed on snails and mushrooms, braved snowstorms and hid in water to avoid Nazi sniffer dogs.
He received the occasional help of farmers, but also faced indifference, hatred and betrayal. By posing as a Catholic named Jurek Staniak, he was able to find lodgings in exchange for farm work.
Israeli high-school kids build life-saving satellite
In a first for Israel, a one-of-a-kind a satellite is set to be launched in April that will provide a much-needed boost to an aging emergency alert system for hikers and travelers around the world who can’t use phone or wifi connections to send distress signals.
Even better – the nano-sized satellite measures just ten centimeters square; once in orbit, it should last for several years, providing services for users of Automatic Packet Reporting System (APRS) compatible devices who need help and are unable to connect with rescue services.
Why Israel's Richest Woman Is Promoting The Business Benefits Of Doing Good
Shari Arison, a petite woman with a calm demeanor, has learned that to get the message out, it helps to simplify things. The billionaire businesswoman and philanthropist told FORBES during a recent visit to San Francisco that at one point her vision was to “secure the human existence.” But, she says, “It was hard to instill it all the way down.”
In other words, not everyone got what she meant. In 2009, she reworked her vision to “Doing Good.” Or more specifically, “think good, speak good, and do good.” That has proved easier to translate.
Israel’s TinyTap snags million-dollar Verizon prize
TinyTap, an Israeli start-up that has developed an easy to use platform allowing parents and teachers to design games for kids, is a million dollars richer Thursday, after having been chosen as one of the winners of the Verizon Powerful Answers award. TinyTap was one of three chosen for the million-dollar award, winning the award for best education idea.
The award, given out by the cellular giant to companies that came up with “powerful solutions to the world’s toughest challenges,” was distributed Wednesday night in Las Vegas, as part of the festivities surrounding the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Hundreds of companies from around the world participated in the contest, which gave away $10 million to 15 companies in three categories (Education, Healthcare, and Sustainability). TinyTap was one of the three winners of the top prize, while four other companies in each category won lesser sums of money.
Canada’s important support for Israel
Under the leadership of Prime Minister Stephen J. Harper, who is to visit Israel in nine days, Canada has emerged as Israel’s staunchest ally in the world.
Yet many observers dismiss Canada as a bit player on the international scene, and write off the relevance of its interventions on behalf of Israel.
They couldn’t be more wrong.
The Palestinians are Jews, apparently
Back issues of the New York Times are available online. Skimming through the articles, I've learned something fascinating. Years ago, the term "Palestinians" as often as not, referred to Jews.
This 1948 article promotes a "Palestinian Music Program", entitled "Melodies of Zion".
