‘Israel accepts Jews only; and American Jews do not object to it; they do not compare Israeli leaders with Hitler or Trump…’
[ Ed. note – Israel Shamir is a noted author and commentator on Middle East issues. His books include Galilee Flowers, and Cabbala of Power. He is also a former Israeli and a Jewish convert to Christianity. In the article below he argues that the attacks on Trump we are seeing today, and particularly the strident protests over the president’s immigration ban from seven Muslim countries, are in reality a continuation of the war against Christianity, though under a different guise.

Caroline Glick is an editor at the Jerusalem Post. In the talk above, she seems to have forgotten who is occupying whom. Glick obviously believes it is Palestinians who are discriminating against Jews, rather than the other way around.
Starting in the year 1990, large numbers of Jews began leaving Russia and immigrating–primarily to Israel, but also to Europe and the US. If we focus in on the time period 1989-2006, the total number of Jewish emigres leaving Russia is believed to be about 1.6 million, and Russia’s Jewish population, as of the year 2014, made up just 0.13% of the total.

Israeli rabbis have approved the practice of polygamy to counter what they believe is a demographic threat posed by Arab populations living in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories.
I have posted a number of previous posts about Ahmed Dawabsha, the young Palestinian boy who lost his mother, father, and younger brother in an arson attack carried out by Israeli settlers on the night of July 31, 2015. But this the first time I’ve seen an interview with his grandfather, who, as you’ll see in the video above, provides a graphic account of what took place that night–and afterwards.
The program features other interviews as well that are quite good and that offer disturbing insights into the extent of Israeli settler terror, its impact on the lives of Palestinians, and the complacent attitude toward it all exhibited by the Israeli government.
‘Not Behaving Like a Normal State’
[ Ed. note – The life of a Palestinian school child is not easy, as the above video makes clear. Equally difficult can be the problems faced by Palestinian families attempting to hold funerals for loved ones slain by Israeli forces. As I have noted in previous posts (see here and here and here), the Jewish state seems to have a predilection for holding onto corpses–for days, months, sometimes even years. ]
A recent study on patriotism, as measured in the 50 states of the US, has turned up some rather remarkable findings. Published by WalletHub, the study ranks states from the “most patriotic” to the “least patriotic” using such criteria as military service (veterans as well as active duty), voter turnout percentages, and volunteerism.
