Turkey and Yemen co-sponsored the UN draft resolution, which called on the anti-Semitic world to stop it from recognising Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish state and stop the US and other member states from moving their embassies to Jerusalem.
The innovation and technology department of the Czech car manufacturer, Skoda (a division within the Volkswagen Group), concluded an agreement with Israel’s Champion, aimed at identifying Israeli groundbreaking autonomous car technologies (Globes, December 18 ).
Between 2012 and 2015, “the UN adopted 97 resolutions criticizing one specific country – and Israel was the target of 83 of them. You have to ask, is Israel truly deserving of 86 percent of the world’s condemnation, or possibly is something else afoot at the United Nations, something that allows the representative of the Assad government to lecture the US for moving its embassy? But listening to these countries, including North Korea and Myanmar and Turkey and China lecturing the United States in any way about human rights and peace might seem a bit much.” said CNN reporter, Jake Tapper.
Apparently, Trump does not embrace the myth of the Palestinian issue as – supposedly – a core cause of regional instability, a crown-jewel of Arab policy-makers, nor the crux of the Arab-Israeli conflict. According to Trump, apologies, appeasement and multilateralism have been replaced by America-first patriotism, the independence of unilateral US military action, the resurgence of the US posture of deterrence, an expanded defense budget and peace-through-strength.
Thousands of infiltrators have been detained since a surge in illegal immigration less than a decade ago. The bill, which passed 71 to 41, would also empower the government to deport illegal immigrants who refuse to self-deport in exchange for compensation.
Ever since Donald Trump rode down the gold stairs in his golden tower cable news has been a staple must see TV. It is stressing many of us out and has not improved the quality of our lives. In the back of most of our minds we had an understanding we were still being governed under Obama’s Administration. This time has passed because this is now Trump’s New Year.
UNRWA launched a global campaign showing the picture of an 11-year-old girl, “Aya from Gaza,” in a bombed-out building—portraying Israel as a cruel oppressor of Palestinian children—but UN Watch exposed it as a fraud: the photo was actually from Syria. The story went viral online. UNRWA suffered massive embarrassment, and was forced to remove the photo worldwide.
Nearly 35 years ago, President Reagan first called for a way to render the threat of ballistic missiles “impotent and obsolete.” Yet today, thanks in part to opposition from those who consider missile defense both unworkable and destabilizing, we have only one system capable of shooting down long-range ballistic missiles headed for the U.S. homeland: the Ground-Based Midcourse Defense (GMD) system.
Lebanon’s Prime Minister Saad Hariri told the French newspaper, Paris Match, that Lebanon won’t respond to Israeli attacks against Iranian or Hezbollah forces located in Syria. (Facing life ‘extinction’ from Hezbollah, Hariri has changed his tune about Israel’s right to defend itself against threats of the enemies!)
“And I waited for my country to do something. I waited for more than just a press release. More than just a U.N. resolution.” But his wait was in vain. “And I was embarrassed. I was ashamed. I was angry. And I resolved at that point that I would do whatever I could for the rest of my life to oppose communism and to help those who were resisting it as well.”
In 175 BCE, the Seleucid Emperor Antiochus (IV) Epiphanies of Syria (1/3 of the disintegrated Greek Empire) wished to exterminate Judaism and forcibly convert Jews to Hellenism. He suspected that the Jews were allies of his chief rival, Egypt. In 169 BCE, upon returning to Syria from a war against Egypt, he devastated Jerusalem, massacred Jews, forbade the practice of Judaism and desecrated the Temple.
Recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and relocating the US Embassy to Jerusalem - as prescribed by the 1995 Jerusalem Embassy Act - represent President Trump’s resolve to focus on US interests, defy Arab pressure/threats, and overrule the politically-correct bureaucracy of the State Department.
The international legal basis was established on another date, which we do not celebrate and do not mention at school. This is when the League of Nations adopted the British Mandate in a vote in which all the League members unanimously accepted the Mandate and thus the Mandate became international law, and in this Mandate the rights of the Jewish people to establish a national home in the Land of Israel are recognized."
The other day my wife and I made our yearly excursion to the many Christmas Craft Fairs that are located throughout New England. Our first stop was at a high school in Eliot, Maine. In past years the baked goods were remarkable and the multitudes of small craft booths were awe inspiring. If you ever wanted to find the Christmas spirit all you had to do was visit one of these fairs.
Propaganda is the tool of the manipulative and is easily used on the stupid and in the USA it seems that ‘stupid’ is not a rare commodity. Democrats and others on the left (including alleged Republicans) would have you believe that all the political activism against TRUMP (which started before he took his Oath of Office) is all related to their righteous and just causes as they uphold the Constitution of the USA and the principles of Democracy and Freedom. Unfortunately for them the facts demonstrate something different as one can read in this following tidbit.
In 1947, and since then, none of the Arab countries have considered the Palestinian issue a primary concern. Therefore, upon the conclusion of the 1948-49 war, Egypt, Jordan and Syria, occupied Gaza, Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) and the Golan Heights’ al-Hama, but never considered transferring it to the Palestinians. Furthermore, in 1949, the Arab League established the Palestinian Desk, which was summarily abolished in 1951-52. None of the ensuing Arab wars against Israeli was launched on behalf of the Palestinians. Also, the Arabs have never intervened, militarily, in any of the Israel-Palestinian conflicts.
Half of the fake, multigenerational “Palestinian refugees” have emigrated abroad from Lebanon. Hamas official fears the phenomenon will affect the “right of return”. Some 260,000 “Palestinian refugees” had left the refugee camps in Lebanon to various countries. “The Zionist enemy is working in this way to empty the refugee camps and to destroy the foundation for the right of return,” Hamas’s representative in Lebanon Ali Baraka said.
Whitford tells the story of Jon, a former addict who’d been homeless and was preparing to graduate from Watered Garden’s yearlong recovery and work-ready program. Asked what helped him most, Jon said it wasn’t the classes, the job training, or the physical wellness. “It’s my mentor that made the biggest difference for me.”
British Telecom selected Israel’s AudioCodes to provide communications solutions, which raised the NASDAQ value of AudioCodes by 9% (a 56% surge in a year), its highest in 3.5 years. The Kansas-based Sprint expanded its contract with Israel’s satellite networking technology Gilat, including a 3-year-multimillion dollar project, triggering a 4.3% rise in its value (Globes, October 18 ).
They sincerely believe the new justices would make the Evangelical Movement the law of our land. In other words, the ends of their type of conservative agenda totally overwhelm their moral and ethical beliefs. They don’t care if their basic beliefs are ignored as long as their political beliefs are realized. The Evangelical Christians now clearly understand the ends justify the means.
Israel was on high alert Monday night and deployed Iron Dome anti-rocket batteries at key points in the center of the country as well as the south, following intelligence that two Palestinian terror groups, Hamas, and the Jihad Islami, are preparing missile strikes against towns in southern and central Israel. Jihad has vowed to avenge the destruction of the tunnel it excavated between Khan Younis and the Israeli village of Kissoufim.
“The big problem is that the Right does not advance, with full force, its political plan, the plan of the application of Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria, and thus a vacuum is created in which irresponsible political plans are initiated by the American administration, the Israeli left and the European countries.
Since the 1993 Oslo Accord, the documented track record of the Palestinian political, religious and media establishment has featured K-12 hate-education and religious incitement. This constitutes the most authoritative reflection of the worldview, state-of-mind and strategic goals of the proposed Palestinian state. Moreover, since the 1930s, the Palestinian track record has highlighted close ties with the enemies and adversaries of the US and the Free World.
These same media types – the ones now screaming to have their voices heard in the media concerning improper sexual advances made by media moguls and powerful media personalities, KEPT QUIET for decades about the abuse of young male and female actors in Hollywood.... he had taken clippings from a newspaper which showed a photograph of two beautiful women - both mothers of children - now living in a Lesbian relationship... Men are to blame for women turning into lesbians... Women don't need men anymore because men are useless... If women are becoming lesbians because men can't satisfy them (in a myriad of ways) then it [homosexuality] must be a choice... The story, far from indicating that MEN ARE AT FAULT, clearly told me that the women's marriages failed because they couldn't be honest with themselves or their husbands.
One particular article claimed that the Saudis had run tests on bringing down air defense systems to provide the Israeli Air Force a path of least resistance to Iran. Just this summer, former Defence Minister Moshe Ya’alon said that Sunni Arab countries and Israel face the same threat of a nuclear Iran. News of a secret visit by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to Israel in September suggests that the need for stronger ties is ever increasing…
Consider what the Air Force recently did. It’s facing a shortage of fighter pilots. By year’s end, defense expert John Venable writes in the National Interest, “the service is projected to have fewer than 2,643 of the 3,643 active-duty fighter pilots it needs to execute its mission.” So President Trump issued an executive order authorizing the Secretary of Defense to recall up to 1,000 retired Air Force pilots to make up for the shortfall.
מהפך דמוגרפי by Ambassador (ret.) Yoram Ettinger Nov 15, 2017
מודרניזציה מואצת של ערביי ישראל, ובמיוחד שדרוג מעמד האשה, מאיצים את התמערבות שיעור הפריון: מ-9.5 לידות לאשה בשנת 1960 ל-3.11 ב-2016 (בדומה לערביי יו”ש). לדוגמא, כמעט כל נערה ערביה בישראל (וביו”ש) מסיימת תיכון, ומספר גדל ממשיך במסלול אקדמי. לכן, תהליך הפריון נדחה לגיל 20+ וסיומו הוקדם לגיל 45, גוברים שיקולי חינוך הגבוה, תעסוקה, קריירה ונוחיות, ומתרחב השימוש באמצעי מניעה. כמו כן, המעבר מהכפר – המעודד ילודה ככח עבודה – לבתי דירות ותעסוקה בעיר, מוביל לצמצום הילודה.
In 2017, in defiance of demographic conventional “wisdom,” there are 6.8MN Jews in the Land of Israel (including Judea and Samaria), a 66% majority, benefitting from a robust demographic tailwind. In 2017, the total number of Arabs in Judea and Samaria is 1.8MN, not 3MN as claimed by the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics. The latter includes in its count over 400,000 Palestinians who have been away for over a year; over 300,000 Jerusalem Arabs, who are doubly-counted (by Israel and by the Palestinian Authority); and 100,000 Palestinians who married Israeli Arabs and received Israeli ID cards, who are also doubly-counted.
One hundred years ago this month, Bolsheviks under the leadership of Vladimir Lenin overthrew the Russian government and established a communist dictatorship. “The world has never been the same since,” writes foreign policy expert Kim Holmes in a recent article for the Richmond Times-Dispatch. How many perished in the wake of this “revolution”? It depends on which historian you ask. According to Richard Pipes, it was nine million. Robert Conquest says at least 20 million, and likely as many as 30 million, died in the “Great Terror.”
Two Israeli women, members of the leftwing Machsom Watch, which monitors and documents the conduct of Israeli soldiers and policemen at checkpoints in Judea and Samaria, were attacked and robbed by Arabs in the village of Azzun. Arabs began to attack the women’s vehicle with cinder blocks and stones, until IDF forces were rushed over and the women were rescued from a lynching quite miraculously.
Gov. Larry Hogan of Maryland, fortunately, has vowed to fight what he rightly called an “outrageous” decision: “The idea that memorializing our soldiers killed in battle on foreign lands to make the world safe for democracy is somehow unconstitutional goes against everything we stand for as Americans. Enough is enough.”
“Before the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration) when the Ottoman rule ended (1517-1917), Palestine’s political borders as we know them today did not exist, and there was nothing called a Palestinian people with a political identity as we know today, since Palestine’s lines of administrative division stretched from east to west and included Jordan and southern Lebanon, and like all peoples of the region [the Palestinians] were liberated from the Turkish rule and immediately moved to colonial rule, without forming a Palestinian people’s political identity.”
Another issue concerning which most people pay little attention – if they are even aware of it – is the ‘Law of Unintended Consequences.’ This little universal law often makes mush of our fantastically righteous ideologies. In Catalonia, Beersheba, The Ottomans, Tibetans and Palestinians which I published on October 30th. 2017, I pointed out that the whole issue of Catalan independence is a can of ideological worms for all of those whose hearts bleed for Palestinian Independence.
The NYC bicycle-path-terror was carried out by a member of the Islamic "pack of wolves" - not by a "lone wolf" – which has been systematically brainwashed and molded by the most effective production-line of Muslim terrorists: hate-education and incitement conducted by Islamic leaders, educators, social media and imams in mosques (and in US prisons!) in Muslim countries as well as in the US.
Rules that affect the way an agency does business, especially ones that could saddle Americans with significant costs, are intended to be proposed and debated openly. The public is supposed to have ample opportunity to comment before being subjected to new rules that can affect their livelihoods. But under “sue and settle,” that’s not the case. Agencies simply caved, unable or unwilling to fight the lawsuits. Worse, they would agree to make changes that went beyond what the law required, paying out tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars to cover the plaintiff’s legal bills.
Of course, using terms like “conspiracy theory” and “far right” are a direct attempt to bias the reader from the start. It’s a common tactic in political advocacy, but has no place in legitimate journalism. In truth, I actually spent considerable time at the beginning of my talk producing official government documents showing that specific government programs clearly claimed to be implementation of Agenda 21. Each of these documents used the exact same description for the purpose of Agenda 21 as a “comprehensive blueprint” with the intention of reorganizing human society.
To say that there is no connection between Islam, Muslims and terror is a denial of truth and the constant refusal to acknowledge the truth is suicidal. When mad cow disease hit England they destroyed whole herds of cattle to stop the spread of the disease. Many were undoubtedly not infected. They did the same in China to the chickens when bird flu hit. The mentality in the west toward Muslims however is that we must protect the guilty in order not to cause pain and suffering to the innocent. (And of course this ultimately leads to Islamic oppression of the decent or secular or non radical Muslim).
In recent weeks, some 130 Israeli companies and another 60 international corporations have received letters from the current UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Jordan’s Prince Zeid bin Ra’ad Zeid al-Hussein, warning them that they are being “blacklisted” for “acting contrary to international law and UN decisions.” While the blacklist has no immediate operational or legal consequences, it can have the long-term effect of deterring investment in the companies in question, providing fuel for the BDS movement and damaging the State of Israel economically.
The British took the land from the Ottoman Turks and eventually divided it between Jews and Muslims. They either had that right or they did not!... The difference between Catalonia and Tibet on the one hand and the Palestinians on the other, is that neither Catalonia nor Tibet have called for, nor stated their desire for the destruction of Spain or China, whilst the Palestinians via their leaders in Hamas and Fatah have made it quite clear that there will never be peace with the Jews until every last one of them has been thrown into the sea.
President Trump’s non-certification provides Congress with an opportunity to reclaim its constitutional role as a co-equal and co-determining branch of government, while exposing the inherently rogue Ayatollahs, who have intensified instability, unpredictability, subversion, terrorism and wars in the Persian Gulf, the Arabian Peninsula, the Middle East at-large, Africa, Asia and other parts of the globe.
The US Army approved the installation of Israel’s Trophy Active-Protection System (APS) – developed jointly by Israel Aircraft Industries and RAFAEL – on a number of its MIA2 Abrams tanks, designed to detect and neutralize incoming projectiles in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. The Trophy ($350K per tank) is the world’s only fully operational and combat-tested APS, possessing four radar antennae and fire-control radars.
Oct 17th to 20th, 2017 Muslims kill Muslims – 72 people were killed (40 in Kabul alone) - 33 worshippers in Ghor Afghanistan, 30 Egyptians dead in shootout with armed Muslim Brotherhood operatives southwest of Cairo - 43 Afghan soldiers at a local base killed and 9 injured - Suicide bombers kill 52 and injure 158.
In Canada meanwhile, free speech is under threat from anticipated legislation in relation to Hate Speech laws which will, if they are introduced, make it impossible to criticize anything about Islam or Muslims. Muslim human rights activist and Clarion Project board member Raheel Raza however has appeared before the Canadian Parliament to oppose this effort to stifle free speech; an effort which she sees as promoting all sorts of social injustices.
Egypt bulldozes at least 140 homes along its border with Gaza to expand buffer zone, in a combined effort with Hamas to prevent weapons and ISIS and other militants from crossing over. *********(No international 'outrage'!)
The 2018 Index of U.S. Military Strength editors take a hard, detailed look at all the facts, and using the scale mentioned above, rate the Navy and the Air Force as “marginal” and the Army and Marines as “weak.” How is this possible, you may ask? It’s simple. For years now, we’ve been asking our military to do more with less. They’ve taken on more work and more missions, all while enduring budget cuts that eat into their ability modernize and equip themselves properly.
A delegation of members of South Carolina’s legislative body is visiting Israel during these Intermediate Days of Sukkot. The delegation has dedicated a large part of the visit to Judea and Samaria, with a special emphasis on the area of Gush Etzion.
While suicide is frowned upon in Palestinian society, attacks on Israelis, especially security forces or those residing in the West Bank, enjoy widespread support, and anyone killed in a clash with Israelis is seen as a “martyr.” On a practical level, their families are eligible for financial packages from the “martyrs’ fund,” which provides stipends to relatives of people killed or imprisoned by Israel. The Israelis have long claimed this provides an incentive for Palestinian violence.
The immediate pain did not hurt as much as what it felt like minutes later. Actually, I thought my leg was on fire. Then I felt another stab on my arm, neck, leg, and even my butt. I was obviously under attack. I ran away from the army of wasps whose main existence was to protect the nest. A swarm followed me around my property and all I could do was attempt to swat them away with my hat and wounded arms. I must have looked like a very bad dancer in a very bad ballet.
In 2010 Dr. Carson wrote a book about taking risk. “I wanted to send a message to Americans that we’ve become a nation of yellow‐bellies,” he said in an interview. “What we’re buying, and what everyone is selling us, is the promise of security.” Here was a man capable of showing courage and compassion, exactly the mix of spine and support that low‐income families in America need. Yet, today, Dr. Cason sounds more like the salesman than the risk‐ taker.
There could be more trouble than we ever imagined headed our way on November 4th when a bunch of folks who aren’t happy about Trump and Pence attempt to overthrow the government in a Communist revolution. Groups like Antifa, Resist Fascism, and the Revolutionary Communist Party have been meeting for months to openly plan sedition and organize what they promise will be massive protests all over the country. Don’t be surprised if things become violent... A disturbing Antifa website is calling for physical violence against supporters of President Donald Trump and capitalists. The site “It’s Going Down,” which has become a resource for self-described “anti-fascist” activists, encourages violence against anyone it labels a “fascist.”
The American Policy Center (APC), has produced a comprehensive special report entitled “Sustainable Development and the Control of Energy (The growing battle over Smart Meters).” This report details the real reasons behind the government’s enforcement of the Smart Meters, the health and privacy violations, and the political agenda behind it all. I urge every concerned American to get a copy.
The holiday of Sukkot (the Feast of Tabernacles) is dedicated to the study of the Book of Ecclesiastes, which was often quoted by the late Senator Robert Byrd, the longest serving Senator and Member of Congress in US history, who was known to quote Biblical verses. For example, on November 7, 2008, Senator Byrd announced his retirement from the chairmanship of the Senate Appropriations Committee: “’To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven.’ Those Biblical words from Ecclesiastes 3:1 express my feelings about this particular time in my life.”
The 2030 Agenda is nothing more than a reboot of Agenda 21. The UN uses such updates of plans to keep their people excited and involved. The 2030 Agenda simply goes in to more detail as to how and what they intend to do. Remember, Agenda 21 was introduced as the “comprehensive blueprint for the reorganization of human society.” The 2030 Agenda gives more detail on how that is to be done, along with providing a more specific date for its full implementation. In reality there’s nothing new here. It’s still Agenda 21!
Israel has failed to convince the Interpol Executive Committee to postpone a debate on membership for the Palestinian Authority. The PA is not legally an independent sovereign state. The greatest concern lies within the realm of international espionage and intelligence in the war on terror. Israel is deeply worried that sensitive counter-terrorism information it has already shared, and any it might share in the future with other member states, could be compromised were the Palestinian Authority to share access.
President Trump would be wise to suspend the Jones Act for a longer time period. As Puerto Rico begins to rebuild its shattered infrastructure, demand for fuel, concrete, steel, copper wire, vehicles, and building machinery will soar. As long as the Jones Act is in place, though, access to American suppliers will be limited, meaning less income for stateside workers and businesses and higher costs for Puerto Ricans.
Furthermore, the Oslo Accord doomed Arabs in Judea and Samaria to be ruled by one of the most ruthless, intolerant Arab regimes. In May 2000, Prime Minister Ehud Barak retreated, hastily, from Southern Lebanon, indicating that Israel could not sustain the average annual loss of 24 soldiers in Lebanon. It was perceived as a symptom of vacillation, which was reinforced by the July 2000 Camp David Summit between Barak, Arafat and Clinton, when Barak conceded unprecedented Israeli ground on the issues of Jerusalem and Palestinian refugees.
Someone who writes under the name Old Woolfy at i.Patriot.com wrote on Sept 29, 2017 that not all of those on the left agree with all of the rubbish currently being pumped out on the left in the USA. He writes in Liberal Downfall: Lunacy Right Before Our Eyes! ... Timothy Meads (Oct 01, 2017) in an article titled British Professor Shows “Sex Change Regret” is Rising, University Takes Away His Funding points out that once the preliminary research report demonstrated that many transgendered people had later come to regret their decision, the research was rejected. Honestly, whilst all the ‘feel good’ people are busy virtue signaling their support for young people who believe that they are living in the wrong body, the reality is that their support may one day come home to bite them in the ass.
And don’t get me started on all those pro forma sections on websites that REQUIRE you to fill in your details. They want your home number – which is fine, but your mobile number which is currently for a different country IS NOT ALLOWED and so you can’t proceed with whatever you needed to do. Once again the expectation that you pay $5 per day to have phone roaming while you are living overseas or on holidays.
The Hebrew/Biblical synonym for “fast” צם) and (צום is תענית, a derivative of the Hebrew words ענה and עני, which means to torture one’s body through soul-searching and fasting, to respond to spiritual needs, and to identify oneself with poverty during the cleansing process. Yom Kippur concludes ten days of genuine, heart-driven atonement, repentance and soul-searching, which began on Rosh Hashanah, the first day of Tishrei, which commemorates the Creation.
There are some also in the USA right now trying to redefine the American political process by insisting that the American Electoral College is a national security threat or so it was reported by Luis Orozco in his September 21st article “The Electoral College Is A National Security Threat”: Liberal Politico Now Pushing For COLLAPSE". God only knows what will happen if it is abolished and republicans still win the presidential election. Perhaps they will just ban middle Americans from voting, or at very least the Christians.
“Across the U.S., corporations employ 54.8 million hard-working individuals who create products for global and domestic markets,” writes tax expert Adam Michel. “Corporate profits also are ultimately claimed by people. More than half of Americans invest in the stock market, and almost 40 percent of corporate stock is owned through retirement plans.”
Population transfer is a legitimate approach for conflict resolution! In 1922 two guys received the Noble Prize for this idea, after almost 2 million were transferred b/w Greece and Turkey. In 1947 12 million were transferred b/w India and Pakistan. In 1949 the 4th Geneva Convention was adopted to stop Israel from doing the same to its hostile Arab population, who remained in Israel after the War of Independence. Since then only Israel is forced to abide by it! Jews need to stop being ‘holier than the Pope’ and regain our self-respect!
I have in the past been asked why I write the things I do since it is unlikely to change any person’s opinions and I have replied that it is not my intention to change people’s opinions but to provide alternative perspectives for young people inundated with media lies and political propaganda. That is why the concept of democratic freedom of speech is so important. When society stops allowing people the right to express their opinions, true Democracy ceases to be.
Others will reach for any objection, no matter how false or ludicrous. For example, right after the election, the Atlantic published an op-ed claiming that Trump’s desire to donate his presidential salary bucked “historical and constitutional precedents.” Not true. Sure, most presidents have kept their salaries, but not all of them. Herbert Hoover and John F. Kennedy, both very wealthy, donated their salaries as well. Even George Washington initially refused to accept a public salary.
There are so many different shades of Christianity, but many of them quite often only care how to recruit more Jewish souls, to prove that roots of Christianity are in Judaism. Mormons even do it to dead Jews – PATHETIC!
In today’s edition we commence with another belly laugh. Recently the Dems have been working with Trump on the DACA issue and undoubtedly many Dems have been preening their feathers but as Nancy Pelosi has discovered, the ‘Dreamers’ couldn’t care less.
Rosh Hashanah was conceived by Jewish sages, during the Second Temple period, referring to the Biblical “day of blowing the shofar” and “the day of commemorating the blowing of the shofar” (Leviticus 23:23-25, Numbers 29:1-6). Commemoration is a central Jewish value – a prerequisite for national cohesion, survival, an enhanced future and refraining from past critical errors, while forgetfulness spells ignorance, loss of critical values and lessons, and therefore the repetition of past errors.
While engaging in endless military conflicts, Israel proudly announced that it trucks supplies to the enemy during the conflicts – aiding and abetting the enemy! Israeli military gave advance notice to enemies in Gaza of its next military action, and even provides details about immanent targets. It is irrational behaviour – no army in the world acts like this during a military conflict!
In other world shattering news, that great unknown world unfamous and politically incorrect writer, author and ESL teacher – MOI – has changed merchant banks. He is no longer selling his book Finding Myself in China: A Politically Incorrect Story for US$8.99 via WorldPay. The book now sells for AUD$5.99 through PAYPAL.
“Nearly every day seems to bring a new horror to the streets of Western Europe…. Death and injury have been dealt out by truck, ax, handgun, kebab knife and bomb….” 11 million Muslims have been killed since 1948, of which 35,000 (0.3%) were killed during Arab-Israeli wars. Over 90% were killed by fellow Muslims. This background – which is consistent with inter-Muslim relations since the rise of Islam in the seventh century – begs the following questions..
We will bring the vision of sovereignty to the People, we will engage in friendly debate and demonstrate that the application of Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria is the only Zionist, ethical and secure plan, combining the Biblical promise with international law and is, in fact, the only realistic plan”.
Sometimes I just don’t get the stupidity of the human race. In the following article there is a report that some nurses were suspended after it was discovered that they had been peeking at a dead man’s penis....Honest to God I sometimes wonder if Americans are the dumbest people on earth. Their political correctness and bleeding hearts cloud all judgement thanks to what Lloyd Marcus refers to as media slime-balls who sell their lies to the public.
We will also mention the Federation Movement, headed by Emanuel Shahaf and the political proposal of Dr. Mordechai Kedar calling for the establishment of local “emirates” for the Arab residents of Judea and Samaria instead of an independent state. We must of course also mention the detailed program of Rav Beni Alon, of blessed memory: “The Israeli Program” (the regional peace framework).
Some 300 Greek Orthodox Christians demonstrated Saturday in the Old City of Jerusalem against the Greek Orthodox Patriarch Theophilus III, over his decision to sell a large part of the land and property owned by the Greek Orthodox Church in Israel.
This is the first of what is hoped to be a series of articles commenting on world news. These articles will be decidedly ‘anti-leftist’ (because I find ‘them’ to be quite insane) but the articles will not automatically be ‘pro-rightest.’...Google is an active participant in the suppression of free speech, or rather, in any speech which offends its political ideology. I personally say ‘screw Google,’ but then again I usually say ‘Screw the USA’ as well. Australia is always a couple of years behind the USA and from what I see in the USA, the future of Australia is bleak. I’m glad I will not live long enough to witness it at its peak.
Israeli export of goods and services grew by 6% during the first half of 2017 – higher than the first half of 2016 – totaling $50BN (Globes, August 31). The petrochemical giant, MexiChem, acquired 80% of Israel’s smart irrigation, Netafim, for $1.5BN. Netafim employs 4,500 persons in 110 countries (1,000 in Israel), owns 17 production plants and 29 subsidiaries (Globes, August 8, 2017).
“Our commitment to academic freedom means that we do not support so-called trigger warnings, we do not cancel invited speakers because their topics might prove controversial and we do not condone the creation of intellectual safe spaces where individuals can retreat from ideas and perspectives at odds with their own,” Ellison wrote.
The criminal alien — 22-year-old Erick Raudales-Raudales, a/k/a Gerson Reiniri Raudales-Acosta — was immediately arrested by Honduran law enforcement authorities and charged with homicide. ICE officials say that Raudales unlawfully entered the United States, prior to 2012 when he was 18-years-old, but they claim how and where he entered the U.S. remains a mystery.
After Latest Islamist Terror Atrocity in Europe, Israel Touted as Example to Emulate on Security. In the view of numerous observers, European nations have something to learn from Israel when it comes to keeping their citizens safe. British journalist David Patrikarakos wrote in The Spectator, “We are fighting 21st century terrorism with 20th century methods. Nonetheless, more can, and must, be done. One country, above all, has the method and the solution: Israel.” (Will the European anti-Semites ask Jews for help?)
UNscrupulous and UNspeakable. According to UN Watch, the 2017 membership of the UN Human Rights Council – elected with a mandate “to uphold the highest standards in the promotion and protection of human rights” – includes systematic, grave violators of human rights such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Iraq, United Arab Emirates, Venezuela, Cuba, Burundi, Eritrea, Bangladesh and China.
When I look at the news and see the LIES, the crass stupidity, the blatant hypocrisy, hatred masking itself as love, totalitarianism calling itself anti-fascist, and the intentional program of deceiving an entire nation and future generations, it makes me sick to the stomach and I am reminded of The book of Romans Chapter 1 around verse 28/29 which talks about what happens to people who refuse to acknowledge truth but call truth lies and call the lie truth.
You can show annoyance but inside remember these are young men and women who don’t need or deserve any more anger in their lives. In other words, never really get angry. Also never yell at anyone because all that does is intensify the problem. Talk with a stern voice but never yell and again, never get angry.
Those 700,000 jobs were stolen from America the moment that Obama signed his executive order. This was done without the authorization of Congress, as the Constitution requires. President Trump can reverse Obama’s amnesty — but H.Res. 198 prevents it from ever happening again!
Romina Boccia and Adam Michel point out in a recent op-ed for The Hill, CBO treats spending cliffs and tax cliffs differently: “When spending expires, as in when the Social Security trust fund runs dry, for example, the CBO assumes Congress really intends for this spending to continue. When tax provisions expire, the CBO assumes Congress really intends for them to expire. This practice biases the budget in favor of tax hikes and spending increases.”
The fascist liberals try to disguise their hatred with words like human rights and freedom and consequently many people get sucked into their rhetoric, including many fake 'rabbis' who think that "as Jews" they must side with them and those Jews who flock towards them are considered nothing more than "useful idiots." They consist mainly of people with equally bad haircuts, self-loathing issues and pants that are way too loose. They are far more numerous and very much infiltrated in universities across the country.
The 1641 Massachusetts Body of Liberties – the first modern day compilation of civil and religious liberties – which inspired the 1791 US Bill of Rights, “drew heavily on the Pilgrim Code of Law proposed by John Cotton in 1636, which was based on Mosaic principles….”
I have never experienced an ever-campaign filled with rallies expounding hatred toward everyone from the media to our Congress. I, and many like me, am pleading with you to end this insanity and start to govern. Also stop blaming everyone except yourself for the problems you encounter. You are the President. Presidents take responsibility.
Unfortunately (and even today in the Christian world this still applies), people mistakenly believe that they can ‘earn the grace’ of God by doing those things which a righteous man does. The fallacy in this type of thinking is obvious when you consider how many (self-proclaimed) righteous, loving, tolerant, non-discriminatory, immigrant welcoming, anti-Trump’s wall, anti-homophobic and anti-islamophobic people there are in the world who would not for a moment hesitate to beat you up, shout you down, hound you, stalk you, curse you, call for your death, seek to have you fired from your job and generally act like nazis toward you simply because you voted for Donald Trump.
This isn’t the first time the IRS has been criticized for doing this. Indeed, early in 2016, four Republican senators introduced a bill designed to keep the IRS from rehiring former employees with disciplinary records. “Common sense would suggest that an employee who was fired for misconduct or poor performance shouldn’t be hired back, but the IRS’s outrageous and bewildering behavior continues to defy logic,” said Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.).
While the US has dealt a severe blow to ISIS terrorists in 2017 – without clipping the wings of Iran’s Ayatollahs – it has, therefore, provided a tailwind to Iran’s entrenchment in Syria, and increasingly in Lebanon. It has advanced the Ayatollahs’ domination of the critical area from the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean, which is a prelude to their megalomaniacal vision of denying the US “modern-day-Crusader” regional and global preeminence.
Catalan police reported that they had killed five terrorists wearing suicide belts in a shootout, after they drove their Audi A3 into pedestrians in Cambrils, two hours’ drive south of Barcelona. When Israel does it, “neutralising” terrorists, Spain and other western international anti-Semites used to always condemn the Jewish state!
When counter protesters set out to impede, provoke and confront an opposing ideological group, what results is what one would expect to result and only the idiotic, mindless, anally retentive and just plain stupid person would claim that it is not their fault that the protesters got upset or took action against them. But who are we kidding here? Counter protesters don’t believe in righteousness or otherwise. They are just rabble – SS troopers – sent in to do their master’s bidding. Give them all a baton and gun and see how quickly they will turn into killing machines to rid society of all its evils – starting with Donald Trump of course!
Zionist Boulevard was inaugurated as part of the events marking the third anniversary of the establishment of Oz Ve’Gaon, the fiftieth anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, the liberation of Gush Etzion and the heart-land of Israel, and the 120th anniversary of the First Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland. A joint venture of the World Zionist Organization, the Zionist Council of Israel, the Jewish National Fund, the Gush Etzion Council and Women in Green, the event was attended by hundreds of people from all parts of the country, and culminated in a panel discussion addressing the challenges confronting Zionism in the coming decade.
S&P held Israel’s debt rating stable at A+, it improved the outlook to “positive” from “stable”. The agency praised the government for “measures that restrain future expenditure growth” which in turn “could enable the government to resist ongoing spending pressures,” even amid recent tax cuts.
Focusing on a task has always been difficult. From school projects to work projects. I will be deep in thought working on a proje …. “Squirrel, did you see that squirrel run by! That was amazing! It had a bushy tail and was holding an acorn in its mouth” … what was I doing? It’s annoying, frustrating but I’m learning to manage it.
The problem is, we have a tax system so incredibly complex that even the people in charge of enforcing it can’t always agree on what it means. It’s loaded with so many exemptions, deductions, exclusions and other complexities that many Americans are afraid to prepare their own tax returns. We need, as the saying goes, a tax system that looks like it was designed on purpose. One that is as transparent and simple as possible.
A Palestinian state west of the Jordan River, on the mountain ridges of Judea and Samaria, would undermine regional stability, eroding Western interests. It would provide a decisive tailwind to the current attempts to topple the pro-US Hashemite regime east of the Jordan River. During the Israel-Jordan peace treaty ceremony, Jordanian military leaders pleaded with their Israeli counter-parts to not allow the establishment of a Palestinian state west of the river, lest it would topple the Hashemite regime east of the river.
In September 2016, the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority used taxpayers’ money to reduce the monthly rents to $75 for HUD residents who visited relatives overseas for up to 3 months. The agency felt it was unfair that East Africans should have to save for so long to take an international trip most working Americans will never be able to afford.
The State Department has in fact provided Ramallah with over $357 million in financial assistance in the past year, 2016. Additionally, in 2016 alone, the US contributed $355,177,827 to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNWRA), of which $95 million was earmarked for the West Bank and Gaza. UNWRA also operates Palestinian refugee camps in Jordan, Syria and Lebanon. In total, therefore, the US gave around $712 million in aid to Palestinians in 2016, and is the world’s largest supplier of such aid.
In 1948-49 – as was the case in succeeding Arab-Israeli wars – Arab countries did not fight Israel on behalf of Palestinians. Therefore, Syria, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt did not share the spoils of the 1948-49 war with Palestinians, prohibiting Palestinian activities in Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) and Gaza. In fact, a Palestinian Department was established, by the Arab League, in 1949, to be dissolved in 1959.
Walking through the entrance to my chapel, firing my water supplying weapon of mass construction, I walk by a round school house filled with children each wearing a red cap surrounding giant sea green stalks reaching up to the sky to become giant yellow faces of knowledge that lean down in order to keep track of their students.
After a contentious meeting with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, President Donald Trump instructed a group of trusted White House staffers to make the potential case for withholding certification of Iran at the next 90-day review of the nuclear deal. The goal was to give Trump what he felt the State Department had failed to do: the option to declare that Tehran was not in compliance with the contentious agreement.
William D. McEachern’s latest offering, “New Caledonia: A Song of America,” is his third historical novel and the second in the Caledonia series. This book engages the reader in a time of relationships and events much different than our modern era. I would heartily recommend the reading of McEachern’s novel for the history buff, as well as the family history sojourner, and indeed anyone who appreciates the unfolding of time past on the printed page.
Although the notion that government can solve, for example, the problem of poverty has been disproved in the United States and throughout Europe, this concept persists in the minds of many people. Optimism is the fuel that feeds our dreams. It provides us with the hope necessary to innovate, invent and aspire, and the willingness to take the risks essential for achievement. Robbed of optimism, people will languish and wallow in self-pity. Their lives, and the lives of their children, will stagnate.
The most calamitous day in Jewish history. The 9th Day of Av (the 11th Jewish month) is first mentioned in the book of Zechariah 7:3. One of four Jewish fast days, it commemorates dramatic national catastrophes (related to the destruction of Jerusalem), in an attempt to benefit from history by avoiding – rather than repeating – critical, moral and strategic missteps. It concludes the 21 days of predicament and lamentation, which began when the walls of Jerusalem were breached by Nebuchadnezzar (1st Temple) and Titus (2nd Temple), launching a seven-week period of consolation, ingathering and renewal.
During Shabbat dinner a 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist stabbed four Israelis, killing three and wounding one. They were eating Shabbat dinner! Three Jews were killed and another was seriously wounded in a stabbing attack in the Israeli settlement of Halamish in Samaria on Friday night. But the UN Secretary General condemned Israel for killing 3 jihadists in self defense and kept silent about 3 innocent Jews killed by Palestinian terrorists!
According to an officer from the Rockaway Township Police Department, Mallory Grossman was found dead after she was allegedly tormented on the Snapchat social-media website. It’s been classified a suicide, but a criminal investigation is still being conducted. The Morris County Prosecutor’s Office is investigating the girl’s tragic death, according to Fredric Knapp, chief prosecutor.
One day my father said they needed my help with the clambake. Wow! I could tag along with the men because they needed my help. I can’t tell you how important that made me feel. At first I didn’t know what to make of it because what had become a tradition in my short life was about to change. The clambake was held at a small airport called Roosevelt Field. Today it is a gigantic mall of stores but back then it was an open field that went on forever.
According to Forbes Magazine, Israel has become a cybersecurity powerhouse, creating more than 300 cybersecurity startups, exporting in 2016 $6.5BN in cybersecurity products, convincing more than 30 multinationals to establish local research & development centers in Israel and attracting foreign investors.
The three terrorists, all of whom were residents of Umm el-Fahm, were praised at a special memorial ceremony held at the local mosque they attended. “All we know about them is that they served the religion of Allah faithfully,” the preacher said. “…The Prophet taught us that one who goes out to worship Allah and is killed is considered a martyr.”
Declining Marriage Rate and religious attendance rates and drug use is up. Temporary Assistance for Needy Families is down, teen sexual abstinence is up and there are fewer abortions. After ballooning in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the rate is now lower than it was in 1973 - the year of Roe v. Wade
Political-correctness resembles a surgeon, who focuses on the spot of the surgery, ignoring the complex medical history of the entire body and its bearing upon the surgery. For instance, the sustained Arab war against the Jewish State has taken place in the Middle East, which has featured a systematic, regional state-of-war, terrorism, subversion, provisional one-bullet-regimes, tenuous policies and agreements, short-lived ceasefires and the lack of civil liberties since the seventh century appearance of Islam.
I sincerely believed this was the end of the evolution of shopping. Then came on-line networks like Amazon that eliminated the concept of going anywhere and talking to anyone unless you had a problem, which at this point, you were transferred to talk to someone far away with an impossible accent to understand.
Our own military has been struggling for too long now, thanks to arbitrarily low levels of funding imposed by the Budget Control Act of 2011. All the while, we’ve been asking it to do more. But a high tempo of operations with a shrinking, aging and less-ready force is an unsustainable combination.
Hours after UNESCO declared the Tomb of the Patriarchs, in the Old City of Hebron in the West Bank, an endangered Palestinian world heritage site, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said the move was both “tragic” and an “affront to history,” and that the US would review its ties with the world body.
The library is trading its 20,000-volume collection for a database of millions of digital books. ..... Printed books can be dangerous as they can’t be changed. If allowed to remain they can be discovered by future generations. In printed version, their message remains intact, ready to spark questions to a hungry mind.
I was finally forced to use a professional spray to poison every inch of my home. I did this late at night in the hopes the smell would dissipate before my wife woke up. This worked for a couple of days but a few hours ago I observed one of the creatures actually attempt to arise from my drain. I will win. I may not survive into my seventies but I will win.
The grand design of the Ayatollahs is to coalesce territorial continuity from Iran in the Persian Gulf, through Iraq and Syria to Lebanon (and its 30%-40% Shiite component) on the Mediterranean, proceeding to topple the pro-US Sunni regimes in the Arabian Peninsula and the Persian Gulf, Jordan and Egypt, gaining control over the paramount, strategic straits of Hormuz and Bab-el-Mandeb, much of the Indian Ocean and the Red Sea, the Muslim World and then the world at-large.
Mao Wenwen reminded me that when she was my student I would often refer to her as Mao Zedong. I do that sometimes – calling students by the names of famous or infamous people. Paying honor to me as her English teacher Mao Wenwen provided me the coffee free of charge (courtesy of the management). She also invited Johnny and me to come inside and take a look around, and once I did, I decided that I wanted to come back to take photos. Receiving permission from the owner, all I needed was the chance to get back.
During the campaign Candidate Trump promised to end AFFH. Rackleff’s appointment to oversee this dangerous program would be a disaster. That’s because he is a partner in a Houston law firm that is a major force behind promoting such HUD grant schemes. In short, Neal Rackleff is the swamp that President Trump promised to drain!
Israel needs to regain self-respectful and deduct immediately from collected funds all remaining debt, as well as $303 million which Israel can use as compensation to victims of terror and additional expenses Israel accumulated while combating terror attacks sponsored by the PA and Hamas. By not doing it, Israel is supporting terror against its own people! Not long ago, Israel paid $20 million in ‘compensation’ to Turkish terrorists – it is time to collect compensation for the Jewish victims and to the state from the enemies!
Our last attempt to give a young family a start in their lives and the lives of their children centered on the Maine Community Services. I got this information from the hospital that again told me they were unable to accept anything that had to do with babies or even children. I always thought they were the same thing. Our last hope ended like the others began. They couldn’t allow us to give.
If nothing changes, the swamp will end up costing more than two million prospective jobs over the next decade. Elites argue that piles of regulations and special rules keep everyone safe. But most Americans understand that these policies serve mainly to enrich special interests and keep up-start entrepreneurs from gaining a foothold.
Contradicting the architects of US pressure on Israel, the defiance of US pressure since 1967 transformed Israel from a supplicant to a strategic partner of the US, bolstering the vulnerable pro-US Arab regimes, sparing the US the mega-billion-dollar requirement to expand its naval, air and land military presence in the Middle East, Indian Ocean, Red Sea and Mediterranean.
According to a senior Palestinian official, US Pres. advisor Kushner said that Trump will decide whether parties ready for peace process or whether initiative should be cancelled based on Kushner’s assessment.
When government tries to help people in need, it often crowds out entities that could provide them with better-quality assistance. And in its zeal to prevent injury and remedy injustice, our government swims ever deeper in the riptides of overregulation. We have partly ourselves to blame. For too long, Americans have expected government to heal even minor hurts. “There ought to be a law,” we cry, and politicians quickly enact yet another curb on our lives. How does this affect prosperity? All too heavily.
I’m sure if you understand what Sociology is that you would find my statement rather strange for it leads to the question of what impact the King’s Calendar Research Result has on society and societal problems. But before we go look at that aspect, I want to talk about the personal aspect – MY aspect.
One attack at Damascus Gate outside Old City. 22 year old female security officer seriously injured. 2 policemen injured. 3 terrorists killed. Weapons used: Carl Gustav rifle and knives. The terrorists were not from Jerusalem but from El Bireh and Hebron in Judea & Samaria (West Bank). They were ages 18 and 19. They exploited the humanitarian freedom given to Arabs by Israel security to come to pray in Jerusalem during Ramadan.
If President Trump wants to make any headway at the EPA and other federal agencies, he needs to do more than appoint good people to run them. He needs to make sure that the people behind the curtain aren’t working to undermine him.....“This is a government employee using taxpayer funds to gather political activists on government grounds to plot — let’s not kid ourselves — ways to sabotage the Trump administration,” Strassel writes.
In defiance of the jagged cutting edge of the Middle East, the inherent regional unpredictability, uncertainty, instability, violence, brutal Islamic intolerance of the “infidel” and the lack of formal diplomatic relations with most of its neighbors, Israel has displayed a unique level of resilience, steadfastness, stability and creativity.
Palestinian culture is all but defined by our devotion to uncompromising opposition to Israel, and that finds it most quotidian expression in the allocation of funds to those heroes and their families for purposes of glorifying their acts. Demands from Norway, the US, the EU, and now maybe even the UN… the institutions or individuals who issue those demands will face unwavering, possibly violent, resistance. You cannot define our culture for us! …Killing Jews is an ancient element of our culture, and the one thing we should be able to agree on.” – Mustafa Massiqr
The demolition came as row between the church and government escalated over allegations the church refused to pay a £450 arbitrary road usage fee. Pastor Zhang Di was summoned for questioning last month and accused of assaulting police officers and attacking a village official. So when I read reports as in the link you sent and see the ACTUAL TRUTH in the middle of the article, I know that there is a lot more going on than is being reported.
North Korea considers its ties with the Palestinians compatible with its paramount strategic goal: the erosion of the US power projection in the Korean Peninsula, the Middle East and throughout the globe. Therefore, Pyongyang has attempted to destabilize pro-US regimes, while forging cooperation with regimes, which are rivals of – or hostile to – the US and its allies, such as Israel.
Despite its frequent denials, the regime has kept tight control on Al Jazeera’s messaging. That messaging has been unchanging since the network’s founding. The pan-Arab satellite station which reaches hundreds of millions of households in the region and worldwide, opposes the US’s allies in the Sunni Arab world. It supports the Muslim Brotherhood and every terrorist group spawned by it. It supports Iran and Hezbollah.
Well obviously I am misrepresenting the meaning of the protester here. What they mean is that they support the right of one section of society to have and to hold their own culture and beliefs and they do this by protesting against another section of society’s right to have and to hold their own culture and beliefs.
After months of investigating President Donald Trump’s unproven conspiracy with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin to derail the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton, some lawmakers are turning their attention to the alleged deception by President Barack Obama...a full-scale investigation into the Obama administration’s activities getting a nuclear deal many believed was a farce at best, a deadly mistake at worst. They are also probing last year’s controversial prisoner swap with Iran for over a billion dollars.
“The goal in Afghanistan is to get the forces to a level where they can handle the insurgency themselves, without tens of thousands of Western troops on the ground. If the West continues to mentor, train, and fund the Afghan military, the Afghans will eventually be able to take on the insurgency themselves.”
The UN agency responsible for so-called Palestinian refugees is accused of dishonest tactics for claiming a photo of a girl in a bombed-out house in Syria was actually of a child in the Gaza Strip, while running its appeals.
As for a non-Muslim who posits that Islamic Terrorists do not truly practice Islam or truly believe in Allah, they are speaking either from complete ignorance, or subjective rationale relative to whatever it is that they have been told, or heard, or read. The word subjective relates a personal position relative to a particular situation. That does not of course mean that the subjective perception is ABSOLUTELY / ULTIMATELY incorrect. It may well be correct – the ultimately provable fact of the matter.
Mr. Trump can you tell me what my grandchildren’s lives will be like? Education has always been a window into all of our futures. Teaching our children the beauty of art and music was thought to be a mainstay in their educations so they can enjoy their futures. History was important because we all wanted for our children to not make the mistake we made and that our fathers and mothers before us. Is it true that building a workforce is becoming more important than building a life? Has the economy of our nation become more important than having my grandchildren enjoy their short time alive?
Schwartz is also president of the Manhattan Young Democrats and the downstate region vice president of the New York State Young Democrats. A photo posted last year on Twitter shows him with Robby Mook, then the campaign manager for Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign.
A Hamas Islamist terrorist blew himself up outside a nightclub on the beachfront in Tel-Aviv, Israel, killing 21 Israelis, 16 of them teenagers! (NOW THEY ARE ATTACKING YOU! When people in Europe and North America are killed by terrorists, it’s covered as a big deal. When Jews in Israel are murdered the world treats it as if Jews just deserve it.)
As a Morris County tax payer, I, like the rest of you, am faced with Average annual taxes per resident of $10,077, earning us a spot among only nine counties in the entire nation- that’s right, the nation- with average annual property taxes over $10,000. With taxes being so high and the penalties for paying late being so low, many people, myself included, whether they own a business, have kids in college, are doing major home improvements, have serious medical problems and a host of other reasons will choose to pay taxes late which amounts to a form of low interest loan.
The chirping continued even though I checked the batteries to make sure they were installed correctly. I sat on my stairs staring up at the noisy alarms not having a clue as to what the problem was. Since my wife was getting annoyed at the prospect of having a chirping sound stay with her forever I decided to take all the alarms down.
Shavou’ot is celebrated on the 50th day following Passover and has seven names (Pentecost is celebrated on the 7th Sunday after Easter): The holiday of the Jubilee/fiftieth (çîéùéí); the holiday of the harvest (÷öéø); the holiday of the giving of the Torah (îúï úåøä); Shavou’ot (ùáåòåú); the holiday of the offerings (áéëåøéí); the rally (òöøú) and the assembly (ä÷äì). The Hebrew acronym of the seven names is ç÷ú ùáòä, which means “The Constitution of the Seven.”
And so I began using the LIKE button. Ah such freedom! New sunrise photo – LIKE! Second day of school award for my granddaughter – LIKE! My 98 year old grandmother passed away yesterday – LIKE! But then the weirdest thing happened. Someone posted an article about two homosexuals who were given a public flogging in Indonesia. So I hit LIKE! Bloody hell! 23 threats of physical violence upon my person, and 17 announcements that I was about to be defriended. WTF?
Within hours after PMW reported that a Palestinian youth center built with Norwegian and UN money was named after terrorist murderer Dalal Mughrabi, Norway condemned it and demanded their money be returned. “‘We will not enter into any new agreements with either the Palestinian Election Commission or UN Women in Palestinian areas until satisfactory procedures are in place to ensure that nothing of this nature happens again,’ said [Foreign Minister] Mr Brende.”
Furthermore, a September 1970 Syrian invasion of Jordan – during the September 1970 civil war between Jordan’s King Hussein and the Palestinians – was withdrawn after three days due to the US mobilization in the Mediterranean, the effective Jordanian military performance, and the deterring deployment of Israeli troops to the joint Israel-Syria-Jordan border, as well as Israel’s readiness to activate its air force (at the request of the US and Jordan).
The U.S. House of Representatives and Senate should pass legislation to increase cyber security — in both public and private sectors — since the country is involved in a “type of cyber Cold War,” former U.S. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said during a congressional presentation. It’s the classified military and intelligence networks that keep us safe, and the World Wide Web that has made us more interconnected than at any time in human history. We must secure our cyberspace to ensure that we can continue to grow the nation’s economy and protect our way of life, stated officials with the National Security Council
It is not better than physical one committed by Inquisition and Nazis! In the beginning Martin Luther was nice to Jews, but 20 years later, when they did not convert, he said burn their synagogue and kill Jews. In a way, any messianic work outside of your own culture is a sign of aggression, superiority or at least disrespect. By doing so one says “I am better than you, join me or burn in hell”! Flash news – Jews do not believe in hell.
The interview may have sent a message of US procrastination on the relocation of the US Embassy to Jerusalem, the ancient core of Judaism and Jewish history, which inspired the early US Pilgrims and Founding Fathers. Procrastination would be interpreted by Arabs as US retreat in the face of Arab pressure and threats, eroding the US posture of deterrence, triggering further pressure and emboldening anti-US Islamic terrorism.
The US president is a man of many talents, and he might believe that his lack of in-depth knowledge of the history and the fault lines of the standoff between us and the Palestinians is actually one of them. He is not burdened with the details of the past, but looking at a blank canvas, on which he believes he can paint the picture of a viable peace deal.
I warned Lauder repeatedly that he was being conned by the duplicitous Abbas who is an inveterate antisemite but speaks with a forked tongue, portraying himself as a man of peace and moderation to the outside world while continuing to encourage religious hatred and antisemitism among his own people.
An Arab hospital in Jerusalem has been forced to stop receiving patients after the Palestinian Authority failed to pay tens of millions of shekels it needs to purchase new medicine. The PA continues to pay an estimated $10 million each month to terrorists in Israeli prisons and a further $15 million a month to the families of terrorists who have carried out attacks against Israelis.
To call this a flawed deal is the understatement of the year. It’s all pain, no gain. No wonder President Obama didn’t submit the deal to the Senate for approval (as he should have). He must have known lawmakers would reject it.
Is it any wonder that there are millions of Americans who don’t vote or participate in our nation’s debate because they think it doesn’t matter anyway? The “average voter” increasingly feels that the decisions have been made for them. Those who hold conservative points of view that our nation should live within the Constitution now believe socialism is inevitable, so why bother going to the polls.
Dogs carry disease and ticks that carry disease. I am now reading articles that a new tick has evolved that can carry a disease we have yet to figure out how to cure. At the end of every day I find myself checking out my body in order to find a tick that was delivered by a dog I do not own. Dog owners argue that a dog is a wonderful companion. I am told they talk to their dogs and they get the feeling the dog understands what they say and even soothe emotions and feelings. I tell these people to buy a plant.
Heavy regulations on higher education is bad policy in general, but no one should be singled out. Regulations should at least be sector-neutral in their application. Regulations place an undue burden on for-profit institutions that limit their ability to grow and improve.
One day after the UN’s cultural agency, UNESCO, passed a resolution disputing Israel’s claim to Jerusalem, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel would cut another $1 million from its payments to the UN, bringing the total cuts since December 2016 to $9 million. From now Israel will pay $2.7m only out of a required $11.7m.
Regulations on coal mining. These Obama-era rules, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said, “threatened to put domestic extraction companies and their employees at an unfair disadvantage.” Repeal, he added, could save U.S. businesses as much as $600 million annually.
155 Israeli hightech companies raised $1bn during the first quarter of 2017, compared to $1bn during the 4th quarter of 2016, $933mn – 3rd quarter, $1.7bn – 2nd quarter and $1.1bn – 1st quarter of 2016 (Globes, April 29). For example, China’s BOE invested $50mn in Israel’s medical equipment startup, CNoga (Globes, March 6); the Dallas-based LS Health Science Partners invested $30mn in Israel orthopedic equipment Active Implants, in addition to $10mn invested by the Dallas-based View Capital and the Memphis-based River Street Management (Globes March 14);
The Gaza power plant cannot afford to pay the heavy tax the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority in the West Bank has imposed on the fuel. Hamas spends millions on weapons/rockets and digging terror tunnels, but does not care about providing clean drinking water and working hospitals! Fatah and Hamas are playing a political game, disregarding the welfare of the people they represent, but Israel will be blamed!
The exodus from slavery to freedom via Mount Sinai, where we received the ethical code according to which we must act in the Land of Israel, to the destiny of bringing divine morality to the entire world, is exciting and heavy; it is laden with responsibility, but also a great challenge. These lines are written between the blasts of the sirens of Holocaust Memorial Day and Yom Hazikaron for the soldiers, by members of the second generation of Holocaust survivors.
“The lesson is that we must be able to defend ourselves by ourselves, in the face of any threat and against any enemy,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, and that is very true. But it’s not enough. The other lesson of the Holocaust, which burns as brightly as the eternal flame, is the great call that should be heard ringing across the nation: Jews, come home.
Our nation is obviously split apart into two political camps. We’ve been suffering through this reality for too many years. On the left are people fighting for a large government that will take care of its people. On the right are people fighting for a smaller government whose primary task is “America First”. This is obviously simplistic but it is the basis of everything that is wrong with our nation.
Unlike the simplistic view of the Middle East, Arab policy-makers are well aware of their priorities, especially when the radical Islamic machete is at their throats. They are consumed by internal and external intra-Muslim, intra-Arab violence, which have bled and dominated the Arab agenda, prior to – and irrespective of – the Palestinian issue
So there you have it. The Patriarch Joseph was born in 1683BC. He was set over the Kingdom of Egypt in 1656BC. The Israelite Sojourn in Egypt commenced in 1648BC. Joseph died in 1582BC. The Hyksos were expelled in 1554BC. Moses was born in 1523BC.The Exodus commenced in 1449BC. The Israelites entered Caanan in 1412BC and 480 years later in the 4th year of Solomon the first temple commenced construction in 970 BC.
In video broadcast by Egyptian opposition TV, men in uniform interrogate suspects, then shoot them dead at point-blank range. Uniformed soldiers can be seen pulling two detainees out of military vehicles, briefly questioning them, and then shooting them. Several other dead bodies can be seen in the area where the two are shot. (No international ‘outrage’! No investigation and no conviction. Who cares – it is not done by Jews!)
The Jewish community in the US has provided a robust tailwind to the deeply-rooted affinity (since the 1620 “Mayflower”), by the American people, toward the Jewish state. Congressional legislation, enhancing US-Israel cooperation have been introduced, almost exclusively, by Christian legislators.
The main source of the Franco-Amerindian (Kebekois) people hatred was one Abbe (Canon) Lionel-Adolphe Groulx the apostle of hatred and vituperation who used every opportunity to revile anything done by members of the English-speaking community. Groulx even went to the point of writing a book in which he openly declared that a marriage between a Joual-speaking (French patois) Kebekois and an English-speaking person was null and void.
I am going to make some statements about the USA as might be found in the newspaper of a mythical communist country called, ‘The Democratic Marxist Republic of Californication.’ In doing so, I am going to be making statements that a casual world news observer or internet savvy foreigner might actually consider to be factual based on extensive exposure to western media.
I first read George Orwell’s ”1984” when I was at school in the late 1960’s. I enjoyed it because it was an easy read whose premise was fiction. I knew we lived in the land of the free and even though we were involved in what I thought was an illegal war we were still allowed to protest it. I also thought “1984” had more to do with east block communist countries or banana republics that were destined to fail because democracy was the bridge to freedom and equality. I liked my world back then and was looking forward to an even better one.
Disciplining yourself to pay attention to the actual words used and the actual meaning of the sentence is very important, especially so since so much of what purports to be news is little more than the writer’s opinion about the facts of the news. Unfortunately, people easily succumb to emotive language such as ‘Donald Trump demonstrates his stupidity again!’ Such a headline is designed to reinforce in the minds of those who don’t like Trump, that he is an idiot. Another thing of which to be careful when reading is the inclination to ‘interpret’ what we read within the context of our religious, cultural and political worldviews.
It is a fact it is for sure, that no matter who is president, one half of the country speaks nothin but bad of him; while the other half thinks that the sun shines out his ass, while the other half pontificates on Presidential suitability without ever having voted at all.
Tax reform should strive to make that cost explicit to taxpayers. Once taxpayers know how much of their hard-earned income goes to the federal government, they will be more willing to reduce the size of government since they will better understand how it negatively affects them.”
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Israel remained committed to treating war wounded from Syria. Israel has treated more than 3,000 war wounded from Syria in what it describes as a humanitarian gesture. In defiance of the United States, which is demanding that the Palestinian Authority completely stop financial rewards to families of terrorist “Martyrs” (Shahids), the PA is now raising the payments to the “Martyrs’” families.
Egyptian-born Prof. P. J. Vatikiotis, from the London University School of Oriental and African Studies, an icon of Middle East history, wrote in Arab and Regional Politics in the Middle East (Croom and Helm, 1984): “The use of terrorism by [Arab] rulers…has been for domestic, regional and international political purposes…. There is an unbridgeable gap between them and all other social and political arrangements… The dichotomy between the Islamic and all other systems of earthly government and order is clear, sharp and permanent; it is also hostile.”
It’s broken down by income quintiles, and guess what? Government data show incontrovertibly that it is the poor who pay the biggest percentage of their income for things such as housing, food, clothing, electricity and gasoline. So when regulations and other government policies jack up the cost of these items, the poor are the ones hit the hardest. Not those of us who are fortunate enough to have done better and moved up the income ladder.
Israel unveiled the latest addition to its multilevel missile defense system with David’s Sling. The two-stage radar and electro-optic guided system’s range is three times that of Iron Dome. The system is designed to shoot down incoming rockets with ranges of 25 to 190 miles (40-300 kilometers), targeting mostly the missiles that were fired by the Lebanese Hezbollah organization toward Israel in recent years.
When you stand to speak you are doing more than reciting words. You are in fact engaged in communicating with an audience your opinions, ideas, feelings, passions and/or knowledge on a subject. They expect you to express yourself with feeling and passion and to actually know what you are talking about. Therefore it is essential that you KNOW what you are talking about – and – show the appropriate body language, gestures, actions and emotions associated with your topic.
Before the Patriot Act probable cause was needed for search warrants and a suspect had to be notified. Today, secret searches are permissible without notice, the federal authorities have more power to track Internet activity and phone calls, and grand-jury testimony may be shared with federal agencies.
Passover is the oldest Jewish national liberation holiday, highlighting the mutually-inclusive aspects of Judaism: religion, nationality, culture/morality, language and history. Passover highlights individual and national liberty and optimism, which have played a critical role in preserving Judaism, Jews and the yearning to reconstruct the Jewish Homeland, in defiance of the 40 years in the desert and the 2,500 year of exile, destruction, pogroms, the Holocaust, boycotts, wars, terrorism and anti-Semitism.
The kids used to turn up repeatedly throughout the day just to look at the foreigner, touch him, feel the hair on his (the monkey’s) arms and generally just gawk. China has changed a lot over the years but there have been times when a foreigner in a small town or village would attract huge crowds. Sometimes people would be known to suddenly come upon you, look up at your face and just plain scream! I’m not joking!
The moral of the story, of course, is that Miss Solomon turned out to be one of the best teachers I ever had. She taught me to love books and she taught me to love good writing. She taught me the importance of good grammar and sentence structure. She showed me how the written word carried within it the magical ability to become power.
Many there are who delight in bringin shame to their country and heritage, and all in the name of some blessed cause or other, but when there be no difference at all between their words and behavior and those of our worst enemies, how be it that such folk can think of themselves as ‘decent, patriotic or right-minded’?
Article 1, Section 8 lays out the specific powers vested in Congress. Self-reliance characterized the first settlers in this country, and the U.S. Constitution exemplified that spirit by creating a federal government of separate and limited powers — one strong enough to represent a new nation to the world, but weak enough to allow states and individuals to thrive.
The Jews had no choice but to agree and the Palestine Mandate was signed in 1922. This territory amounted to 78% of what was promised to the Jews and it ultimately became Jordan. The deletion of the east bank became permanent contrary to Article 5 which prohibited any removal of land from the Mandate
This conviction is revealed by the fact that 76% of Israeli Jews want Israel to permanently retain sole responsibility for security in all of Judea and Samaria. Eighty-eight percent say that Israel must permanently control the territory bordering Ben-Gurion Airport. Eighty-one percent insist that Israel must permanently control the land that bordering the Tel-Aviv-Jerusalem highway Route 443.
“Occupier” is a legal term that does not apply to Israel. Israel’s legal title and rights to its present territory were established in the San Remo resolution, an agreement adopted by victorious Allied Powers after World War I, confirmed by the League of Nations, and incorporated into the U.N. charter. None of the Jewish people’s rights to live, emigrate to and settle the land of Israel have ever been revoked, nullified or superseded by a subsequent act of international law.
The increasingly boiling Arab Street accentuates Israel’s unique role as the only stable, reliable, effective, democratic and unconditional national-security-producing-ally of the US, whose posture of deterrence – in the face of Islamic terrorism and Iran – is a life insurance policy for pro-US Arab regimes in the Middle East.
Unfortunately, the West does not know what every Muslim scholar knows; that the worst enemies of Islam are from within. The worst of these are the khawaarij who delude others by the deeply dyed religious exterior that they project. The Prophet, peace be upon him, said about them, “When you see them pray you will consider your own prayers insignificant. They recite the Quran but it does not exceed the limits of their throat.” In other words, they don’t understand the true meanings.
The first attempt at Obamacare repeal may well have failed, according to Haislmaier, because lawmakers lost sight of the “why.” We need to remind ourselves why many people are having a bad experience with Obamacare: Its basic construct is untenable. Its purpose, he writes, was to “take control of private health plans and convert them into off-budget extensions of federal programs.”
The Trump administration will not be satisfied with verbal statements by Palestinian leaders condemning acts of terror, but insists on aggressive practical steps: Palestinian media must stop broadcasting anti-Israel materials, Palestinian school curricula must be purged of hate Israel propaganda, and the PA must give up naming streets and squares after dead terrorists, thereby treating them as martyrs to a holy cause.
When I see the news on the ‘idiot box’ as we liked to call it when I was younger, or read the news, I sometimes feel a little sick in the stomach. There is an old sayin that ‘No news is good news’, and given the choice between what is presented as news and havin no news, I’ll take the latter thank you very much.
Both of them understand what Sima Kadmon wrote in her latest political column: “After all, Religious Zionists are a bunch of suckers, you’ve been treading on them for four years, and a month before the election, you suck up to them and the voters come storming in droves.” So right. So true. So sad.
President Trump will learn that the so-called Palestinians will not become rational. They are not going to give up their dream of destroying Israel. Creating a new Arab Muslim state may not even be their intention. They will not submit to his powers of persuasion or will agree with Jared Kushner that Jews have a history and affiliation with the land. They do not care about the concept of sharing the land, and living side by side in peace with anyone. It is not in their blood – Muslims are not even able to do it among themselves, forget about Jews!
The Muslim Brotherhood – not the Palestinian issue – has plagued Egypt since 1928. The Muslim Brotherhood, and its ideology, nurtured the Taliban, Al Qaeda, ISIS and other Islamic terror organizations. Therefore, President Al-Sisi has followed in the footsteps of President Sadat, who resisted President Carter’s pressure to place the Palestinian issue at the center of the 1977-79 Israel-Egypt peace process.
Below is a one minute 43 second youtube video featuring Muslim Human Rights Activist Raheel Raza from the Clarion Project, in which she says of Donald Trump that though he is politically incorrect, he won the election ‘with a mandate among other things to call radical Islam what it is’ and she invites people to stop being politically correct and begin talking about radical Islam.
If Trump has his way, people will have to rely on ingenuity and hard work to succeed in life, and will be expected to be decent, moral citizens. God forbid that he succeeds in getting control of the judiciary! It will be back to the dark ages of Constitutional Limited Government and common sense!
Adversaries and potential adversaries have chosen to exploit U.S. vulnerability and invested heavily in ballistic missiles, as well as programs researching and developing lethal payloads for them. As Heritage has continued to emphasize, the threat from ballistic missiles is only 33 minutes away.
The Egyptian army has destroyed six underground tunnels connecting the Sinai to the Gaza Strip, from Feb. 21 to March 13. In 2014, Egypt established a buffer zone along its border with the Hamas-governed Gaza Strip, to prevent it from collaborating with ISIS-affiliated Islamist gangs which have been attacking Egyptian army and police in the Sinai.
Where were these PC (expletive) when I and others were writing years ago about the Syrian crisis? Did they care about the Syrian people? No they didn’t! Do these same sociopathic western political activists who would call me a racist support Muslim and other cultures similar practices such as female circumcision? – polygamy? – arranged marriages? No they don’t! They outlaw it! So don’t talk to me about how I am a racist!
In 2011, the Department of State welcomed the Arab Tsunami, which has displaced millions of people and murdered hundreds of thousands – and keeps raging – as an Arab Spring, youth revolution, Facebook revolution and a transition towards democracy. The failed track record of the State Department, in the Middle East, does not warrant adherence to its proposals.
In the final days of Obama’s presidency two rules slid under the radar that drive explosive local planning and building costs, transfer control of certain grant-related planning to the government, and render local officials helpless to combat them.
Years later, when my daughter hit the wonderful teenaged years, she didn’t accept my advice as she did in the past. In fact, she obviously dreaded it. However, I gave it to her anyway because I wanted her to survive her teenaged years.
“Minister Liberman is mistaken and misleading when he says that the application of sovereignty would lead to a crisis with the American administration,” say Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar, leaders of the Women in Green group. “We do not know who Minister Liberman has been talking to, but from our sources, it is clear that the policy of the Trump administration has not changed,” Katsover and Matar wrote in an email release.
Consider what the distinguished liberal historian Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr. had to say in his book “The Disuniting of America.” He argued that a stress on ethnicity has benefits, but that “its underlying philosophy is that the United States is not a nation of individuals at all but a nation of groups, that ethnicity is the defining experience for Americans.” This dogma, he warned, “replaces assimilation by fragmentation, integration by separatism. It belittles unum and glorifies pluribus.”
I do apologize for the singing – mine – and by way of explanation, the reason that you hear me saying ‘hello’ (twice) is that a man told his son to say hello and when I decided to say ‘hello’ a lady walking passed me thought I had said it to her and so she also greeted me with ‘hello!’
The question shouldn’t be what the comment was but did he have a right to express his views. Should he have been censored and ultimately censored from his show? I don’t agree with what he said but why should other people demand he stop discussing his beliefs. If it offends then the people it upsets should simply stop listening.
The 586 BCE destruction of the First Jewish Temple (on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount), and the expulsion of Jews from Judea & Samaria, by the Babylonian Emperor, Nebuchadnezzar, triggered a wave of Jewish emigration to Babylon and Persia, which eventually replaced Babylon as the leading regional power.
Everyone is so concerned to be politically correct and so worried about being perceived racist, that they fail to see that in fact the true racists with the truly incorrect political agenda are the ones pointing the finger and doing the name calling. (In psychology it would be called reaction formation; the suppression of one impulse by the promotion of a counter impulse.)
Egyptian airport security denied entry to senior Palestinian Authority (PA) official Jibril Rajoub and deported him. Rajoub is a confidant of PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas and a high-ranking member of the central committee of Fatah movement, who in the past called for use of nukes against Israel. No reason for the deportation was given.
Ambassador (Retired) Yoram Ettinger has produced a mini-seminar video on United States, Israel and Middle East Policy and Security, and the seminar has also been produced as a series of separate Six Minute Videos, some of which have appeared embedded in their text format published here at Kingscalendar. Below is provided for you the links to The YouTube 6 minute video series
While Minister Lieberman speaks of 2.7 million Arab Palestinians in Judea and Samaria, the actual data that has been validated by senior demographers is that there are 1.8 million Arab Palestinians, and this figure has been trending continually downward for the past twenty years along with the most rapid westernization of any other area.
Political correctness is not a new invention. According to the unofficial codex of intelligencia of Tsarist Russia, “A member of the intelligencia must not admit or show his anti-Semitic tendencies.” It was never about not having them!
In keeping with the news media’s tradition of denigrating and maligning Republican appointees to key White House positions including those related to national security and counter-terrorism, famed military and law enforcement strategist Dr. Sebastian Gorka is being targeted and accused of being Islamophobic without any credible evidence.
According to a November 15, 2001 Department of Justice memo to the White House National Security Council, irrespective of international law and consistent with the US Constitution, the President has the constitutional, discretionary authority to terminate, or suspend, unilaterally, fully or partly, the 1972 USA-USSR ABM Treaty – the limitation of anti-ballistic missile systems – without seeking coordination with Congress, and certainly not with the USSR, whenever the President determines that it is in the national interest to do so.
Impoverished East Palo Alto, CA has practiced a similar HUD program for over 30 years. In 1987, their students began attending classes in tony Menlo Park, home to Silicon Valley, and more recently Facebook. At best studies show mixed results.
Having met up with my pen friend we went ‘somewhere’ and there was this big open paved garden type area and there were platforms going nowhere which you ascended by climbing stairs. Through the middle of the paved courtyard-garden ran a little pond. I was fully aware of its existence but so focused was I on taking a good photo that I was walking while looking through the viewfinder of the camera. I fell straight into the pond.
Such sweeping statements often come from lack of facts. It is part of a new rhetoric to frighten people and motivate the purported evil of immigration. Here, the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs clarifies the facts about migration and crime in Sweden. (Facts about migration and crime in Sweden)
In August 2013, through a secret warrant and with no warning, the federal government seized Carole’s entire bank account—nearly $33,000. She was not charged with any crime, nor did the government claim that her money was earned through any illegal activity; however, she was told by two IRS agents that they seized her account because she had made several cash deposits of slightly less than $10,000.
How wonderful it would be if supermarket separator bars really did have magical powers to extend beyond the checkout line, out of the building and into the parking lot and make human beings everywhere respect each other and each other’s property.
After the US received intelligence that both the Palestinian Authority and Jordan’s King Abdullah II were planning a massive intifada against the State of Israel in order to prevent the Americans from relocating their embassy to Jerusalem, the Donald Trump administration warned both regimes, thus assuring that such attempts “would open hells gates for them.” This American response proves that US President Donald Trump is tough on terrorists and dictators.
We have the same economy this year. We lead the world in spending to the point many economists state the world’s economy was saved because of the American need to have more. Of course this also means many of the people of the world are still struggling to survive. Some say that trying to change this reality is like throwing a gate to the wind.
Given the new American President’s desire to actually cause the USA to prosper, and given the number of calls for breaking the regulatory strangle hold that some political bodies have on business and the community, I thought it might be worthwhile republishing this litte tale.
Israel is a rising power with a growing impact on world affairs. The American Interest, stated on January 24: “This is there is a new name on our list of The Eight Greats, Israel.." Never has Egypt-Israel security cooperation been as close as it is today…. The rise of Iran has made Israel critical to the survival of the Sunni Arabs, including the Gulf States…. Israel begins 2017 as the keystone of a regional anti-Iran alliance
HUD’s upward mobility programs are bound to fail because they contain no mechanism for helping people build economic success. Rather than accept the fundamental truth that mental attitude and job opportunities are key to financial advancement, the agency instead uses its own circular logic.
The number of federal regulations has increased substantially, raising total annual compliance costs to more than $100 billion in just seven years. (Thanks, President Obama.) Ballooning deficits are fueled by federal welfare programs, farm subsidies, “green” energy programs, corporate welfare and other special-interest spending.
“Peace for us means the destruction of Israel. We are preparing for an all-out war, a war which will last for generations… We shall not rest until the day when we return to our home, and until we destroy Israel.” - Yasser Arafat (El Mundo, Venezuela, February 11, 1980; The Times, UK, August 5, 1980)
“The effectiveness of a guarantee depends upon the willingness of the guarantor to react to a threat, and upon his ability to react with sufficient force…. [For instance,] fear of disrupting American relations with Arab states was a factor in the 1967 US decision not to force open the Red Sea Straits of Tiran to Israeli ships [contrary to the US commitment in 1957, in return for a full Israeli withdrawal from the Sinai Peninsula]..
The point in providing these videos on behalf of the Clarion Project is to hopefully assist in getting the word out that the extreme liberal progressive ideology does not represent REALITY when dealing with the politically motivated fundamentalist Islamist plan.
If you want to know what will happen to your hometown if Trump allows the Department of Housing and Urban Development to continue its devastating control of local rule, look at Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania. It is the latest community to surrender to HUD’s aggressive tactics.
In 2017, conventional “wisdom” maintains that the Palestinian issue is the crux of the Arab-Israeli conflict, a core cause of Middle East turbulence and a crown-jewel of Arab policy-making. However, conventional “wisdom” was trounced on the rocks of Middle East reality, as it was when: the State Department appeased Egyptian President Nasser (1950s); facilitated the toppling of the Shah of Iran by the Ayatollas (1977-7; embraced Saddam Hussein, and inadvertently encouraged his August 1989 invasion of Kuwait;
But let’s focus for now on how the EITC discriminates against married couples. In most cases, the EITC benefits received by unmarried parents who cohabit are significantly higher than those received by similar couples who are married.
The assumption that inherently tenuous, intangible, open-ended and reversible US security commitments constitute an effective compensation for critical Israeli land, tangible, irreversible concessions – such as a retreat from the strategically and historically critical mountain ridges of Judea and Samaria – reflects detachment from the Washington constitutional labyrinth and recent precedents, engendering a false sense of security, thus compromising the existence of the Jewish state, transforming Israel from a robust national security producing asset to a frail national security consuming liability, undermining US interests and US-Israel relations.
Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing requires EVERY community that applies for HUD grants to perform massive demographic analyses locally and regionally to determine if there are enough low income and minority people living in every neighborhood. HUD will search the records of every person in each neighborhood for income levels, race, color, religion, national origin and much more. If there aren’t enough of each category to satisfy HUD’s vague rules, HUD will claim that the community is in violation! Next, HUD will file law suits against the community to enforce its will. HUD is already doing this in many communities across the nation.
According to independent estimates, regulation costs us more than $2 trillion annually. Yes, “trillion” with a “t” — 12 zeroes. That’s more money than the IRS collects in income taxes each year. In just the past eight years, the Obama administration issued more than 22,700 rules, with just the biggest ones increasing the annual regulatory costs by some $120 billion.
These days, final preparations are being made for the fourth Sovereignty Conference, which will be held on Sunday, the 16th of Tevet, February 12th, in conjunction with the periodical Basheva (and will be broadcast live on Arutz 7). In this conference as well, in which ministers, members of Knesset and public figures will take part, the various ideas of how to promote sovereignty will be presented. However, in contrast to previous conferences, in this conference, Matar and Katsover intend to outline a plan that will offer a first response to the challenges of sovereignty.
Supreme Court Justice Yoram Danziger who rejected the government outline by which the Amona residents would be evacuated peacefully in return for alternative housing nearby, on the same day ruled against the evacuation of Arabs from their illegal houses built on private land belonging to Jews in Beit Hanina, in Eastern Jerusalem.
Today our nation’s Constitution is under attack in the name of keeping us safe. Both Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin warned us when our nation was brand new. They taught us not to let fear change what we believed in. They explained we can’t protect our society by taking its freedoms away.
Despite all the hysterical accusations made by the sociopathic ideologues, the reality is that REAL everyday Muslims who have left their homelands to settle in democracy loving western lands DON’T WANT to be controlled by Islamists. They more than anyone else know what living under Islamic (theocratic) political and social control means.
Politically Correct Ideologues are people who become so trapped inside fundamentalist thinking, that they lose contact with the real world and see nothing other than their ideology. In short, they are totally focussed on what is inside their own heads, which is why I constantly refer to such people as ‘sociopathic.’
A regime change in Jordan would exacerbate Palestinian terrorism, possibly forging a radical bloc from Iran to the Jordan Valley, posing a clear and present danger to the relatively pro-US regimes in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the UAE, Oman and Egypt.
Fight 2 Fight (F2F), a worldwide movement where music and boxing collide as a catalyst for positive change, officially launched on January 1 and has already begun it’s global impact through appearances in Nashville, Pittsburgh, Miami and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
Palestinian leaders preach nonstop hatred of Jews and continually incite murderous violence against them. Palestinian schools teach children of every age that suicide martyrdom must be their highest goal. These attitudes are deeply ingrained in their culture, and getting their own state won’t change them. In fact, any Palestinian state would almost certainly be taken over by Hamas, whose charter explicitly calls for the death of all Jews everywhere.
It is little understood by the general public how Public/Private Partnerships are actually used, not as a way to diminish the size of government, but in fact, to increase government’s power. In truth, many PPPs are nothing more than government-sanctioned monopolies. These privileged few businesses are granted special favors like tax breaks, free use of eminent domain, non-compete clauses in government contracts, and specific guarantees of return on their investments.
The government of Israel has evacuated Amona – Does the Left or the world like us any better? Do they respect us more? Isn’t it better to apply the law in Judea and Samaria, to absorb exactly the same condemnations that we get in any case, but to do it to rescue the Land of Israel and Amona as part of it?
It is impossible to achieve anything without setting an objective. We need to revive, re-ignite and be clear about the Jewish National Goal and aspirations. We can’t afford to waste time anymore. Our enemies declared their intention clearly, recently and in the past. Our ambiguity is just inflaming their hate!
In China, the rights of society take precedence over individual human rights. This, we Westerners call totalitarianism and from an ideological perspective, desire to destroy it right? But ask yourself this: “What does MY country promote?”
The European Union is funding dozens of projects that are dedicated to the destruction of Israel, according to a new report by the NGO Monitor. The EU is the “single largest donor to non-governmental organizations (NGOs) active in the Arab-Israeli conflict, accounting for NIS 28.1 million in 2012-2014 to politicized Israeli NGOs alone.
There is no doubt that the immediacy of Trump’s order has caused inconvenience for many people, like the one I read about today of an Australian woman who arrived in the US only to be told that she had to leave because of her unacceptable dual citizenship. And I quote the illusion of truth:
Most of them came to Palestine after Zionists started reclaiming Jewish land. The goal of their masters, Arab and British, was to prevent the creation of the state of Israel. There are 22 Arab countries. It is time for them to return home. The message must be clear: Their sinister plan has failed!
Israeli <strong>Arabs strongly oppose Defense Minister Liberman’s land – not population – swap proposal, which stipulates the transfer of Arab-majority land in Israel to the Palestinian Authority, while Jewish majority land in Judea & Samaria (the West Bank) would be transferred to Israel. They are determined to remain Israeli citizens, rather than become subjects of the Palestinian Authority.
Right now you are probably asking, ‘What the heck is the Seder Olam Rabbah?’ So here is a little information gleaned from a variety of online sources. Seder Olam Rabbah is Jewish literature of second century A.D. dated to about 160 AD. and first printed in 1514. It is a Midrashic chronological work generally regarded as a work of the tanna Jose b. Halafta. [The “tannaim” were the masters of the “oral law,” i.e. the men who wrote the Talmud.]
Religious Aliens. Say we find life on another planet. How might the world’s religions respond? Perhaps you consider that a good question, but I’m hoping you agree that NASA’s Astrobiology Program had no business giving more than $1.1 million to the Center of Theological Inquiry to find an answer.
That there are probably many errors and circular arguments in relation to ancient history is attested to by many, including Colin Renfrew, Professor of Archaeology, Cambridge University (James Et. Al. 1991 : foreword pages.xiii-xv)
AFFH is a 2015 HUD rule that expands the definitions of what constitutes discrimination and creates an application process that greatly exposes grant recipients to compliance reviews, lawsuits, and other legal actions for failure to comply with HUD’s increasingly dictatorial demands.
Immediately begin the process of reigning in the power, over reach, and illegal policies of every federal agency. One of the worst offenders of federal overreach and intimidation is fully represented in the day to day operations of the agency for Housing and Urban Development (HUD.)
Israel is now officially capable of shooting down ballistic missiles in space. Arrow-3 is capable of shooting down intercontinental ballistic missiles fired from thousands of miles away, neutralizing the threat outside of Earth’s atmosphere where it will harm no one.
Former US ambassador to the UN John Bolton, who reportedly had been a candidate for deputy secretary of state, published a poignant article in The Wall Street Journal last month in which he dubbed the two-state solution a deadend vision. Bolton claims that such an imaginary state with zero economic viability will harm not only Israel, but also the Palestinians themselves.
In order to avoid the failed Middle East track record of all US Presidents, since 1948, President Trump should refrain from – rather than repeat – the systematic errors committed by his predecessors. They were misguided by the political correctness and conventional “wisdom” of the US State Department, which courted...
We see an extremely important deviation from all that has gone before in the ‘King’s Calendar.’ For the First time, we are encountering the artificial construct in relation to the tabulation of the reigns of non-Jewish kings. Someone has gone to the trouble of researching non Jewish history and converting that solar history into the artificial construct, and as has been pointed out previously, Josephus was ignorant of the artificial calendar.
The election is over. The arguments, disagreements, and horrible insults with both ideas and words have made the past eighteen months discouraging and depressing. It is now over. It is now Donald J. Trump turn to take our nation to a better place for our children, grandchildren, and yes, great grandchildren.
An Israeli public opinion poll, released on the eve of President Trump’s Inauguration, shows an overwhelming majority of Israelis are ready for sovereignty – now. The vast majority of the Israeli population would like to see Israeli sovereignty being applied over Judea and Samaria. Only seven percent of the public is interested in establishing a Palestinian state in these areas.
After the presidential election there came a point when I, along with so many others in the world, just looked upon the USA as a big joke; a laughing stock. But as time has gone on, that joke has turned sour and right now I can’t help but think America is about to go through – and I apologize for sounding religiously self-righteous – a shaking judgment.
No archeological discovery has ever controverted a single biblical reference. Scores of archeological findings have been made which confirm in clear outline or exact detail historical statements in the Bible. And, by the same token, proper evaluation of Biblical descriptions has often led to amazing discoveries. Almost 100% of The King’s Calendar reconstruction of Ancient Israelite History fits into currently acceptable historical chronological perspectives.
The truth is, today, fifty years after the inception of the United Nations, the international community is a dangerous place. Today the world has more wars, more poverty and more suffering that anytime in human history. Obviously, the United Nations is irrelevant as a body to deliver world peace. Just as obviously, the UN is more interested in meddling in the sovereign affairs of nations, seeking to impose its own agenda over development, production and what it calls social equity in a drive to set itself up for global governance.
The mass evacuation of the snowbirds of the coasts of New England begins as soon as the lights and the celebrations of the holidays end. They flock to the warmer weather of the southern states in order to escape the cold and snows of the winter months.
Moroccan Burqa manufacturers and retailers were issued written warnings this week of their obligation to cease making and/or selling the garment. Representatives of the Moroccan Interior Ministry visited markets to hand-deliver the written notices to vendors and tailors.
Standing on the Levee road looking at the Yangtze River was not quite the thrilling and exotic experience of a lifetime. The Yangtze River is only exotic in tourist dreams. Lotus square is immediately behind me in this photo and that land in the distance on the other side of the river is not actually on the other side of the river but is a floating island (apparently). My guess is that it is primarily a sandbar which keeps shifting appearance and location.
The female technician took one look at me and said she would have to shave my chest so the electrodes would stick. Body hair is a consequence of coming from Italian stock and, is considered a sign of virility by some women. Except, when she had finished with me, I would be going into the summer season with more hair on my back than on my chest.
We look at an issue in relation to Queen Athaliah of Judah in which the Bible alleges that she killed all the heirs to the throne to steal the throne for herself. That this picture is perhaps not correct is alluded to later in the Bible records of the reign of King Joash when reference is made to advice he received from his royal relatives.
The July, 2015 agreement between Iran’s Ayatollahs and the Permanent Members of the UN Security Council and Germany has not moderated the Ayatollahs, according to a June, 2016 study by Prof. Eldad Pardo of Iranian K-12 school textbooks, which are the most authentic reflection of the mission, strategy, tactics, character, worldview and general direction of rogue regimes
Now there are rules and regulations on who must be treated and what procedures must be used. Of course, like all things government, these rules and regulations haven’t been written by doctors, but by bureaucrats serving various special interests who stand to gain financially. Eliminate them.
Terrorist drives truck into Israeli soldiers in Jerusalem, 4 killed and 15 injured. Terrorist shot dead. Who shot the driver? Not the soldiers. They were too scared to shoot, so a civilian shot the terrorist dead. It looks like we have just paid dearly for the court case of Elor. Another report claims that the soldiers were asking for permission to open fire from their commander while their friends were being killed… This is just too sickening!
The Ayatollahs’ pursuit of nuclear capabilities – irrespective of the July 2015 agreement with the US – aims to achieve a mega capability, in order to remove the mega US obstacle to their 2,500-year-old mega goal of dominating the region and the globe
He jumped on the globalist bandwagon; Climate Change and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership – or TTIP between US and Europe. These were issues he never compaigned for during the election but nonetheless relentlessly pursued with ado and confusing urgency.
The asterisk is a symbol that represents that something has been left out. Today’s modern use for the * is that a title or representation does not completely mean what it is supposed to mean. In other words, there is a reality associated with the title.
There are exactly 482 sanctuary cities and towns in California and 58 sanctuary counties. That is because California is a sanctuary state. The state passed a law that mandates a a minimum sanctuary status. All municipalities and counties in California are sanctuaries. It is not necessary for cities to declare themselves sanctuaries any longer.
Western media and policy-makers try to seduce Israel to misread Palestinian and Islamic terrorism, to make-believe that “one’s terrorist is someone else’s freedom fighter;” that Palestinian terrorism is a reaction to occupation; that Palestinian terrorists are “lone wolves” not institutional….
I did it to demonstrate that the political feminist agenda is warped in the way it represents both men and women. It has fostered the idea that it is men and men alone who are the violent ones in society; it is men who are the abusers. This is plainly not true and legitimate research proves it to be untrue, but since it offends so many sociopathic politically correct ideological feminist minds to give proper recognition of the facts, we don’t often hear any public discussion on the topic of female violence.
It then became my granddaughter’s time to open her gift. She tore open the holiday wrapping as if it never existed, tore open the box of which the on-line service sent the special doll and reached through the bubble wrap in order to finally own what she has wanted for a long time. Her face immediately became ashen and her eyes immediately watered instead of showing excitement and love of the moment. She pulled out a small package that contained a shower curtain.
I cry for America for two reasons. The first is that the light of honesty and decency – the hallmarks of democracy – are being extinguished by puerile and apparently sociopathic people. But perhaps the more important reason for my tears is that I believe that what we are seeing now is the death throes of the American Republic. If America falls, then so too does democracy, and if democracy falls, what hope do any of the peoples of the world have?
Our federally controlled education system collects sensitive, personally identifiable data on every public school student in America. Even their most guarded medical history no longer bears privacy. We are raising generations of children to whom personal property rights have no value. When property rights lack value, human rights vanish.
Nebuchadrezzar’s campaign against Jerusalem dated here to 596 BC (not 597 BC) whilst a fact, poses some difficulties, not just in relation to biblical chronology or biblical narrative for that matter, but with the details provided in the Babylonian Chronicles. Since it was not possible for Nebuchadrezzar to have accomplished everything necessary between Kislev and Adar 2nd, it has been determined that Jehoiachin had succeeded Jehoiakim prior to Nebuchadrezzar’s forces leaving Babylon.

This article is devoted to demonstrating that pieces of the historical jigsaw in relation to Ancient Near Eastern History that were thought to fit the jigsaw have actually been forced to fit; and many pieces thought by historians to have been superfluous and which were consequently thrown away, actually do belong. You will find nothing in this article by way of chronology or narrative, that contradicts the Egyptian, Assyrian or Babylonian Records of events that transpired during the period from 609 BC to 562 BC, the period covered in this article.
If the dates calculated for Kandalanu, or the understanding of ‘the year in which there was no king’ (after Kandalanu’s death), or the understanding or interpretation of various business contracts is incorrect, then the reigns of Kandalanu, Nabopolassar and Nebuchadrezzar, from 648 BC to 587 BC will be incorrect.

BenDedek originally created the site to publicize his research results into the Chronology of Ancient Israel. Those results were published under the title: 'The King's Calendar: The Secret of Qumran.' Whilst there have been many attempts to solve the chronological riddle of the Bible's synchronisms of reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah and their synchronism with other Ancient Near Eastern Nations, no other research is based on a simple mathematical formula which could, if it is incorrect, be disproved easily. To date, no one has been able to dismiss the mathematical results of this research.

Definition: King's Calendar Chronological Research
The Premise: Between the 5th and 3rd centuries BCE (but continuing down to at least 104 BCE), Sectarian redactors transcribed the legitimate 'solar year' chronological records of Israel and Judah, into an artificial form, with listed years as each comprised of 12 months of 4 weeks of 7 days, or 336 days per year, thus creating a 13th artificial year where 12 solar years existed.
When the Synchronous Chronological Data provided in the Books of Kings and Chronicles for the Divided Kingdom Period are measured in years of 336 days, the synchronisms actually align. [Refer to Appendix 5. to see how it synchronises the Divided Kingdom Period]
