The Seattle Mideast Awareness Campaign would be better off making the American public aware that $3.9 billion of their tax dollars are going to support the Palestinian Authority, which is just the PLO masquerading as a government incase nobody has noticed and which continues to teach Jew-hatred and hatred of America and the West in its schools. It incites violence against Jews, praises suicide bombers, and lionizes murdering terrorists by naming public streets, squares and sports arenas after them.
The Forward Defends Rutgers Anti-Zionist Event, Denigrates Holocaust Victims and Slanders Israeli Troops
There is an article in this week’s edition of the Forward that should leave the pro-Israel students and supporters at Rutgers University feeling encouraged about their recent protest of a pro-Palestinian event that was designed to denigrate the Holocaust.
But the Rutgers students should also reserve some energy for a tinge of outrage.
I don’t know what else I was expecting from Code Pink, the group so inane its members interrupt their own interviews. When they’re not expressing their patriotism by crashing naturalization ceremonies, they unwind by targeting Israeli products for boycott. Boycotting is an easy, do-it-at-home form of activism for the Code Pinker whose boas are all at the dry cleaner.
The boycott in question is the Code Pink campaign against AHAVA beauty products. The embarrassing misstep? Listing, in their trove of media clips surrounding their efforts, an article from The Jewish Week about a mother whose 7-year-old daughter’s birthday party was spoiled by anti-Israel sentiment stirred up by the boycott. Code Pink, why would you list this among your PR victories
Unable to defeat Israel on the battlefield or intimidate her by decades of terror her Muslim tormentors have anxiously turned to a different strategy. In defiance of the mountains of historical and archeological facts, let alone the biblical evidence, they have embarked on a strenuous effort to turn history upside down and wage a campaign to prove that Israel and the Jews have no legal right to the Land of Israel and that it should always have been a land over which Islamic supremacists hold dominion.
Actually far from being isolated, my country is actually more economically entwined with Europe than we’ve ever been – the story of a tiny nation with little in the way of natural resources outperforming not only its neighbors, but some larger European nations as well. That Arab countries on our borders don’t wish to share in our relative prosperity, that 62 years after our birth those same Arab states continue in their self-defeating (either de facto or de jure) economic boycott of our country is not a reflection of our values, but rather of theirs. In nearly every measurable social, educational, and economic category, my country often wildly exceeds the performance of our oil rich neighbors. That my Israeli passport makes me persona non-grata in most of the Arab world is an indictment of their intolerance, their intransigence, their bigotry, not mine.
News about Israel and the Jewish community from around the world.
Over the last hundred years there have been similar situations when longtime, seemingly entrenched regimes were set upon by a myriad of disparate forces focused on immediate change. What can we expect to emerge in Cairo after Mubarak’s fall in light of historical patterns?
Analysis of the chaos in Egypt since January has consumed much of the talking head time on American television and yet almost none of these pundits has properly discussed the context of this process compared to the great revolutions of the twentieth century. How are these events similar to the Russian Revolution? How is the flow of these events mimicking the history of the ouster of the Shah?
The 7 Lamest Charges of Anti-Semitism Directed At Glenn Beck By Media Matters and The George Soros Left
From their perspective, Media Matters’ targeting of Glenn Beck is almost understandable, after all the radio host/TV commentator has been warning people how the progressive agenda is a danger to American freedom for a long time. He has also been exposing, George Soros, also known as “Spooky Dude” who is the Sugar Daddy for much of the progressive movement, including Media Matters.
These photos are not something independent of the protest movement that started these demonstrations. The group commonly known as the April 6 youth movement ovement originated on Facebook and generated the initial excitement for the current protests. A year ago the New York Times profiled the university students behind the April 6 organization and reported that the movement’s first large-scale public action was a protest against the Mubarak regime during Israel’s incursion into Gaza in late 2008/early 2009. These demonstrators criticized Mubarak for not intervening on behalf of Hamas and against Israel. “(M)ore than 2,000 protesters marched through the streets of downtown Cairo, carrying Palestinian flags.” In today’s Islamic world being pro-democracy has no impact on whether you hate Israel or buy into dark anti-Jewish conspiracy theories.
And all of this–the rest of the Egypt story–is now being ignored by the press here and in Europe.
Controversy simmers nearly a week after Rutgers students hosted Never Again for Anyone, an international speaking tour that compares modern Israel to the Nazi regime. Hundreds of protesters were turned away from the event, and one student subsequently received violent threats in response to his account of the evening.
Never Again for Anyone will visit DePaul University this Friday. Scheduling an event purporting to “honor” Holocaust victims on a day when most Orthodox Jews can’t attend (or protest) is a glaring example of the tour’s thinly-veiled true intent of minimizing and exploiting the Holocaust in an attempt to delegitimize the Jewish state.
