Republicans can’t rely on anti-Obama sentiment alone.

A flotilla of weapons-grade defeatism


Notice how quickly the meme formed?
I expected our outright enemies (and our wobbly allies) to grasp hold of the “Gaza flotilla” story like a life preserver, and they didn’t disappoint. The only thing missing was Dennis the Peasant chirping, “Come and see the violence inherent in the system! Help, help! I’m being repressed!”

Toronto Muslim: ‘We need another Holocaust’ (video)


Last Friday, my husband and I joined about one hundred others to document a Jewish Defense League (JDL)/ Yidden on Wheels protest outside Palestine House, just outside Toronto.
