The (Ugly, Distorted, Hateful, Violent) Truth About the Palestinians

Friday, March 18th, 2016

The Israeli-American Council (IAC) has produced a polished and concise audio-visual summary of “Palestinian” “history” — about a fabricated, supposed ethnic group with a phony and badly-manufactured history (shown below). Indeed, the Arabs whom the Israelis have been forced to manage don’t even call themselves “Arabs.” The word “Palestinian” refers to peoples of Aegean or Anatolian origins — literally, the biblical Philistines — who invaded Israel and harassed the indigenous Jews. It was the despicable Roman Emperor Hadrian who murdered 600,000 Jews and then “renamed” the Jewish homeland as “Syria Palaestina.” Hadrian sought to permanently punish Jews by renaming their sacred homeland after the traditional enemies of the Jewish people, the Philistines. Sane people know that Jews have CONTINUOUSLY lived in Israel for AT LEAST 3,000 years. You can hardly take a step in Israel without turning over some Jewish archaeological evidence. Arabs, Mohammad’s ruffians, didn’t conquer Israel until the 7th century AD. Most “Palestinians” immigrated to Israel during the 19th and 20th centuries. The UNITED NATIONS mandated the birth of “modern” Israel. Finally, for Pete’s sake — as in Saint Peter — Jesus was a Jew, not a Philistine. He was called Rabbi, Amen, Messiah, Christ, and Mar.

Passover Guide for the Perplexed 2014

Saturday, April 12th, 2014

By Yoram Ettinger, The Ettinger Report

1. The Passover legacy constitutes the foundation of Judaism, and is therefore included in most Jewish blessings (“in memory of the Exodus”). Passover symbolizes the rejuvenation of nature and mankind, spiritually and physically, individually and collectively/nationally. Passover stipulates that human rejuvenation – just like the rejuvenation of nature – must be driven by memory/history/roots. Therefore, parents are instructed to educate their children about the lessons of Passover. Passover was an early – and much more successful – edition of the (19th century) Spring of Nations. It is celebrated in the spring, the bud of nature. The biblical scroll of Song of Songs, which highlights spring, is read during Passover. Spring, Aviv in Hebrew (אביב) consists of two Hebrew words: Father – אב – of 12 – יב – months/tribes. Spring is mentioned 3 times in the Torah, all in reference to the Exodus. Passover – which commemorates the creation of the Jewish nation – lasts seven days, just like the creation of the universe.

Op-Ed: Anti-Semitism, Old and New

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014

by Phyllis Chesler

And so, twelve years after I started writing my now out-of-print book, “The New Anti-Semitism: The Current Crisis and What We Must Do About It“; eleven years after I published it in 2003, I am counted as one of the experts on the subject.

My words are joined by those of Irwin Cotler, Hasia Diner, Michel Gurfinkiel, David Mamet, Cynthia Ozick, Alvin Rosenfeld, Charles Small, who are grappling with the question of “Anti-Semitism. Where Does It Come From and Why Does it Persist? What are its New Forms? Will It Ever Go Away?”

Our answers vary. Jews have always been “outsiders and enemies;” Judaism has been viewed as an “antiquated” or as a “corrupting” religion. Anti-Semitism is a way of “externalizing evil,” explaining “economic patterns,” provides a “convenient scapegoat,” is “misdiagnosed in America,” is “complex and contentious,” is a “politically correct disease, “an example of “Holocaust inversion,” of “state-sanctioned hatred,” is due to “Radical political Islam,” and remains “an omnipresent threat.”

Terrorism redux: My thoughts after Boston

Monday, April 29th, 2013

By Gary Gerofsky

The Jewish Daily Forward published an article on April 17, 2013, soon after the Boston terrorist bombings entitled “Jews Warn Against Rush to Judgment on Boston Marathon Terror Bombings: Security Experts Say History of Mistakes Teaches Caution.” It contained the usual cautionary tripe and left-wing warnings not to presume anything about the bombings and not to jump to conclusions. The article did not, however, avoid musing about connections to Hitler’s birthday, the Oklahoma bombings, and the low-tech nature of the attacks — all conjecture used by the author to obscure the true nature of the terror act and to pin blame on the unobvious. The carnage was actually carried out by obvious culprits and the usual suspects: Muslim terrorists.

The Book of Esther: A Political Analysis

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

By Barry Rubin

The Book of Esther, which is read on Purim and to which that holiday is dedicated, has been interpreted many ways. Yet there is much to be understood by analyzing the story in terms of political ideology and strategy.

Ahasuerus is the powerful king over Persia and much more. He holds a banquet and invites the leaders of all of the provinces to come in order to wield together his diverse empire by showing his wealth, strength, generosity, and bringing together his political elite in terms of fellowship and equality with each other.
