Grant Smith and the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy (IRmep) have released a report on efforts by Israel advocacy groups to effect changes in textbooks used in public schools in Virginia. According to IRmep, the requested changes include:
Nikki Haley–always at the service of Israel. In a Security Council session held last night, Haley, for the second time in a week, blocked a resolution calling for an investigation into Israel’s killing of Palestinian protestors in Gaza.
In the video below, featuring a news/talk show on Russian TV, one of the guests makes a stunning revelation–that Israel has not expelled any Russian diplomats. The entire program is worth viewing, but I call your attention especially to the comments on Israel, which begin at about 7:51:
While the US, Britain, and other European countries all expelled Russian diplomatic personnel over the Skripal poisoning affair–in the case of the US, 60 officials from the Russian embassy in Washington were declared persona non grata and ordered to leave–not a single Russian diplomat has been expelled from Israel, according to the guest on the show.
Departing US National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster believes the Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C. is holy ground. He said so in a recent speech there.
“We are gathered together this afternoon on holy ground,” he proclaimed.
Russians are truly fortunate people. They don’t have to shield their eyes from the embarrassing spectacle of their leaders bowing and prostrating themselves before the Israel lobby. The protest in the above video took place yesterday, on day one of the AIPAC convention. There’s a lot of anger expressed in it. You can kind of understand why.
The media can’t seem to stop blathering about “Russiagate.” Perhaps it’s a convenient way of deflecting attention from the real elephant in the room: Israelgate.
A few days ago I posted an article about children’s books by Jewish authors, a disproportionately high number of which were found by Andrew Joyce, the writer of the article, to have been included on a list of “banned and challenged books” that is yearly maintained by the American Library Association (ALA).
Not long after I posted the article, a friend sent me an email about the children’s book you see above.
