On the 'Tikkun Olam' FetishJews are nowhere commanded to "repair the world." in Judaism it is the job of Jews to repair the Jews - a not inconsiderable task - not to repair the world.
Would-Be Book BurnersSince when is it the job of the government in a democracy to arrest or indict people for exercising their freedom of speech? That is what the Supreme Court seems to be demanding.
Lincoln a Leftist? He Would Have Been a "Settler"!The Israeli Left has embraced Lincoln because it is convinced that, if Lincoln is regarded as a moral champion, clearly identification with Lincoln must lead one to support the political agenda of the Israeli Left.
Protect the Palestinian ArabsHow to protect uninvoled Palestinian Arabs from being killed when the IDF is engaging terrorists and, possibly, lower the level of terrorist acts.
Maybe They Will Wishful thinking is not the way to run a country - if we want to survive, that is.
About Those Africans Most Eritrean illegal infiltrators to Israel are Moslems and there is suspicion that terrorists enter the country among them. And if 50 African countries won't have them, are they also anti-black racists, as Haaretz painted Israel?
A Just Verdict in the Corrie CaseCorrie entered Gaza to be a human shield for Hamas mass murderers. On March 16, 2003 she decided to play chicken with a large Israeli earth mover. The most lasting image of Corrie was of her face contorted with rage as she burned an American flag.
The Iran Lobby in IsraelA sarcastic look at the Israeli left's campaign to keep Israel from doing anything about Iran's nuclear plans.
Bibi PeresyahuThe writer suggests that the prime minister change his name to Binyamin Peresyahu.
A Mediterranean Barbary WarThe fight against the Gaza bound flotilla is the third anti pirate Barbary War. The writer has suggestions for the next phase.
About RacismYou would be forgiven, if you have been reading the Israeli press, if you were under the impression that Lieberman and his entire party are little better than Russian-born Ku Klux Klansmen.
The Olmert DoctrineSo, let us see if we have this straight. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is outraged that a Russian millionaire paid for the vacations to Eilat for residents of Sderot because such vacations were, in Olmert's "mind," escapism, fleeing from the front, and abandoning their homes in the face of terrorism.
A Canaanite PatriotismThe Left has been denouncing the proposal for a "loyalty oath" as yet another form of blatant Jewish racism against Arabs. After all, we all <I>know</i> that many Israeli Arabs - and also many Arab members of Israel's parliament - are disloyal enemies of their own country, seeking its destruction and cheering on genocidal terrorists.
Professors for the Appeasement of Terror200 lecturers and professors from Israeli academia (and some PhDs not in academia), are demanding that the Israeli government stop preventing Palestinians from the Gaza Strip moving freely to the West Bank for purposes of studying and attending classes.
When Will It All End?The Israel of today is not the same country as the Israel of a month ago. The metamorphosis in the media illustrates it better than anything else.
Why the Katyushas Are FallingPeople have very short memories. Most Israelis do not even recall the events that have led up to the rain of Katyushas and other missiles on Israeli civilians this past week.
Leftist Indoctrination at the University of HaifaThe course outline is crawling with postmodernist Newspeak and gibberish, about conflicting "narratives" in the Middle East and about "colonialism". The course outline by Yonay makes little attempt to hide the fact that Zionism will be represented in the course as a form of colonialism and imperialism.
Tough!Don't want Palestinian civilians killed when Israel shoots back? Simple. Stop the rocket attacks on Sderot. Don't like Israeli reprisals? Simple. Stop the terror atrocities committed by Palestinians against Jews.
A Master Plan to Defend SderotI hereby propose the organization of the Sderot Defense Forces (SDF). The SDF will be a militia entirely operated by and manned by the residents of Sderot. Its function will be to retaliate whenever Sderot is attacked.
Holocaust Remembrance Day at Tel Aviv UniversityJust before Holocaust Remembrance Day began this year, a group of leftist and "post-Zionist" radical professors at Tel Aviv University decided that the time was apt to show their own solidarity with Iran and defend it from American "imperialist ambitions". Really.
The Jihad of the Israeli LeftRecent campaigns are in some ways more outrageous and far worse than the earlier boycott initiative. The newest campaigns are directed against individual Israelis in their private capacity and are being promoted by some of the most openly anti-Semitic of Israel's academic extremists.
The Political Lessons of PurimHaman, the villain of Purim, is thought to be descended from Agag, the evil king of the Amalekites, captured by King Saul. The Biblical injunction to "remember what Amalek did to you" is considered particularly timely in proximity to Purim.
Why the Hamas Victory is a Good ThingThis may strike you as bizarre, but I have been arguing that the best thing that could happen in the Palestinian Authority "election" would be a strong Hamas victory. Let me explain.
Same DifferenceAt this point, there are three contenders for prime minister. Each of them has a track record of endorsing Oslo appeasement, Israeli capitulation and Israeli self-abasement. Having noted this, there are nevertheless significant differences among the three, and the results of the next election do matter.
Got That "Ooo La La, Intifada" Feeling?Well, there are very few things as amusing these days as watching the French grapple with their backyard <I>intifada</I>. The suburbs of Paris are now more dangerous than Jenin and the French are getting their comeuppance....
The Politically Incorrect Nobel LaureateAlas, the academic Left was in for a surprise. Prof. Aumann is not only politically incorrect, he is strongly opposed to the entire Oslo "peace process", he believes Ariel Sharon's Gaza "disengagement" was the height of folly, and - Marx protect us! - he actually believes in God.
The Outing of the Noisy Professor BeininBeinin has long turned his classroom into a propaganda bully pulpit from which he bashes Israel and promotes the causes of the jihadniks. He has been photographed by the <I>Stanford Daily</I> carrying placards on "Nakba Day" (the "catastrophe"), a day devoted to mourning Israel's creation and hoping to see that Israel is annihilated.
Sharon Renews the RRH DoctrineI've long suspected that it is the Israeli grand strategy to defeat the Palestinians by forcing them to laugh themselves to death.
Jihad at Tel Aviv UniversityYou will be interested in learning that Tel Aviv University now offers a course in one-sided, far-leftist Israel-bashing indoctrination, dressed up as a course in psychology.
Disengagement and DemonizationAriel Sharon had evidently reached the conclusion that a military victory was needed, and since he was incapable of directing or unable to order a military victory over the Palestinians, he ordered a military victory over the Jewish "settlers".
Syrian Fascism Strikes AgainA few days before his disappearance, the Canadian <I>Globe and Mail</I> correspondent Paul Koring interviewed Mr. Alkhaznawi in Damascus for a story about Syria's newly emboldened political dissidents. "Either the regime will change, or the regime must go," he said in the interview. That sealed his fate.
Phantoms of the OprahYes, Oprah, the waddling guru of the bored middle-class at-home housewives, has repeatedly taken time off from teaching her followers about closet organization and thigh reduction, in order to promote the Palestinian cause. She has run one-sided articles about the Middle East conflict on her show and and in her O Magazine.
Former Israeli Leads Anti-Semites in EuropeThe Arabs, declares Eyal Sivan, were in the right when they attacked Israel in 1948, because the Arabs were seeking a nice Rwanda-style bi-national state with an Arab majority in which the Jews would be treated almost as well as are the southern Sudanese Christians and animists today.
The Second City's Twin Academic NeonazisNorthwestern evidently did not know about Butz's psychotic Nazi agenda when it hired him, but DePaul knew exactly what it was getting when it hired Finkelstein. Finkelstein had earlier been fired from two adjunct jobs in New York due to his lack of any scholarly credentials...
UCLA's Anti-Israel Woman in BlackWho exactly is this Yael Korin? Korin may be the most visible of the
ex-Israeli far-leftists comprising a small Bash-Israel Lobby in the Los
Angeles area, ex-Israelis working for the destruction of Israel...Yael Korin is a co-founder of the Los Angeles branch of "Women in Black",
an anti-Jewish and pro-terror propaganda organization.
