It’s good to know that Secretary of State John Kerry’s ideal multi-faith model is a country that seized 20,000 Christian bibles, banned Ahmadis from praying and destroys a Hindu temple every 3 weeks.

Let’s hope his boss doesn’t intend to introduce this multi-faith model in the United States.

Kerry said, “We meet in Kuala Lumpur because this is a multi-cultural city at the heart of a multi-ethnic, multi-faith country, and history has proven time and again that diversity is one of the most important catalysts for discovery.

“Here in Malaysia, people of different heritages have been in conversation for a long, long time. You see it in the open houses that you host during holidays, welcoming people of different faiths into your living rooms.”

How has that conversation been going? Let’s look at some highlights.

Authorities in Malaysia have seized more than 20,000 Bibles in recent months because they refer to God as “Allah,” Christian leaders said Thursday.

The seizures have fed fears among minority groups, which see signs of encroaching Islamic fundamentalism in the predominantly Muslim but multi-racial country.

And some more highlights of multi-cultural and multi-faith and multi-ethnic Malaysia.

HUMBERTO FONTOVA: A LESSON ON CUBA’S HEALTHCARE FOR BILL DE BLASIO “I have a huge critique of the current government there [in Cuba] because it’s undemocratic,” snapped de Bill de Blasio to a Cuban-American radio interviewer two weeks ago. “I also think it’s well known that there’s some good things that happened — for example, in health care.” Does it occur to people nowadays that […]


The anniversaries of the Yom Kippur War and the Rabin assassination have come and gone. Both historical events are national traumas laden with ambiguous meanings.

The Yom Kippur War destroyed the political fortunes of Golda Meir and Moshe Dayan and moved Rabin into the big chair. Rabin couldn’t hold on to power as Labor corruption ended the unbroken rule of the left commencing what was effectively fifteen years of rule by the right.

Rabin’s return to power was an equally brief window for the left. Since Peres’ loss to Netanyahu, there has only been one Labor prime minister and he barely lasted two years in office.

From one angle, Israel has emerged out of the shadows of the left. Under conservative governments, it has modernized and innovated. The Israel of the startup probably would not exist if the kibbutz was still a viable proposition. From another angle, Israel is a conservative country in the grip of an unelected left.

The peace process, a desperate attempt by the Labor Party to become relevant again, is headed into its third decade. The casualties of the endless Peace War and the expansion of the enemy’s capabilities to the point that Tel Aviv and Jerusalem have been shelled are all terrible, but they are not the real threat.

The terrorist war against Israel is a war of nerves. It is meant to drain Israel’s energies, to tie it down and make its people and soldiers feel futile and desperate in the face of a threat that can’t be pinned down. These are the same exact tactics being used against the United States. Terrorists are proxy armies. They are not the ultimate threat. They are a strategic means of disabling an enemy before the real attack.


THE REVIEWER OPINES: “The Family” is a very emotional book. It has no overt message, but the lesson of its narrative is hard to miss: The survival of the Jews has hinged in some sense on the establishment of the state of Israel. Yet it is the U.S. that has given the Jewish people the secure homeland they have sought since the destruction of the Temple, where Mr. Laskin’s ancestors may well have been inking in Torah passages in days lost to memory.”

No one will dispute the security Jews have found in America….but…and this is the very troubling and important “but”- only Israel can secure Jewish continuity….rsk

The modern history of the Jews is encompassed in the saga of one family spread across Europe, the U.S. and Israel.

The unspeakable tragedies and improbable triumphs of the European Jewish diaspora in the 20th century have been told many times but rarely quite so compellingly as in David Laskin’s “The Family.” Mr. Laskin’s chronicle could have been written in tears—of torment and scarce joy—and it is at once anguishing and inspiring.

The story begins in 1835 with the birth of Mr. Laskin’s great-great-grandfather in the forlorn shtetl of Volozhin in the Pale of Settlement on Russia’s western edge. It ends in the second decade of the 21st century with 101 descendants in America, 32 in Israel and only a few gravestones left in Europe. In between are tales of piety amid privation, immigrant courage and industry, Zionist pioneering, Nazi brutality, and the precarious salvation of the Jewish people.

Remarkably, the modern history of the Jews is encompassed in the saga of a single family. One restless daughter, fired by revolutionary socialism, sets off alone for America, where she winds up the millionaire czarina of a brassiere empire. Another goes south and becomes a founding mother of Israel. An uncle journeys from the Pale to the Bronx and then on to Israel, where he dies just short of his 92nd birthday. Others, less intrepid, never leave home and are literally incinerated in the Holocaust. “History,” writes Mr. Laskin, “made and broke my family in the twentieth century.”

Netanyahu: Stand Alone And Tell Them To Go To Hell! A Response to the New York Times Slanted and Vicious Column

Ze’ev Jabotinsky said it first in 1911, but it is the only appropriate answer to the slanted and vicious NYT attack on the Israeli PM. Ronn Torossian

For a long time, the world complained about Israel’s harsh vow to protect themselves from Iran’s building of nuclear arms. Israel – so far – hasn’t yet acted in a defensive strike, yet the Iranian enemy remains at Israel’s doorstep devoted to her destruction.

And on Sunday, The New York Times ran a profile filled with venom for Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Calling him a “shrill” voice on a one-man “messianic crusade” against Iran’s nuclear weapons program and saying he is “taking a lonely stance”, indeed may actually prove he is the one sane man in a world filled with delusional fools. More likely, it may mean that, like so many times in the past, the Jewish people stands alone in times of danger.

Worldwide, anyone concerned with the safety of the West should hope Netanyahu and Israel remain on their crusade to stop Iran from reaching nuclear capacity. With a fool in the White House, it is even more vital.

The New York Times profile states “His office wall is dominated by a map, Iran looming large at the center. Iran has been Mr. Netanyahu’s priority — many say obsession — since 1996.”

A country on Israel’s border who openly declares its intent to destroy the Jewish state is definitely worthy of obsession for that nation’s leaders. Sane people respect and envy those who defend and protect their people.

The fact that Netanyahu has held off, so far, from striking Iran should earn him praise from liberals – but, of course, since he is Prime Minister of Israel, that didn’t happen

A former Muslim Brotherhood terrorist who turned to love unveils an administration’s Islamist odyssey.


NOTE FROM VICTOR SHARPE: Insanity and Humiliation are, indeed, the twin plagues Israel is enduring under the present government and under too many of its predecessors. The dance macabre, as I call it, between Israel and the terrorist cesspool called the Palestinian Authority must end. As we know, as soon as pressure is again imposed upon the Jewish state to enter into “peace” talks with the Muslim Arab barbarians, there is no peace but pieces of Jewish flesh. It is a zero sum game and there must be an end to the fraudulent entity known as the PA, which obscenely sits astride the very biblical and ancestral Jewish heartland of Yehuda and Shomron (Judea and Samaria).

There can never be true and lasting peace for the Jewish state with those who follow Islam. Period.

This is what a Christian Tea Party activist and American immigrant from India, Mario Goveia, wrote to me as the latest Palestinian crime against an Israeli civilian was perpetrated; this time by a Palestinian Arab sniper who shot a 9-year-old girl. Since then, yet another Israeli has been struck down – Seraya Opher – in the Jordan Valley.

My Christian friend wrote:

“It has bemused me for years that here you have an implacable adversary that has been honest enough to put their nefarious objectives and principles IN WRITING. They have never tried to hide their objectives. They even make maps that show no Israel, and no one in the US, UN or even Israeli leadership, takes them seriously, even when they have been acting on their principles for 65 years now.

“Thus emboldened, these Arabs, especially the so-called Palestinians, keep making demands as if they have the power and have been the victors in the various conflicts that have taken place. I have never seen anything like it in history, where the victors are the ones making concessions, and the vanquished intractably and consistently try and call the shots and make demands.”

Many supporters of Israel express utter bewilderment that the Jewish state, alone among the nations of the world, allows this murderous aggression by Palestinian Arab brutes to proceed day after day, week after week, month after month and year after year. We heard Transportation Minister, Yisrael Katz, warning that “the attack does not bode well for diplomatic talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.“


It’s time for American Jews to say thank-you to evangelicals—and to act accordingly.

Robert Nicholson’s “Evangelicals and Israel” should worry any Jewish supporter of Israel, for three major reasons.

The first is that ingratitude is a great sin—though one with deep roots in Jewish history. The story of the Jews in the Bible is replete with incidents of their ingratitude to God for His gifts to them: incidents that just as repeatedly merit and receive punishment. Here we go again: today’s American Jews are spectacularly ungrateful toward a huge community of evangelicals whose enthusiasm for Israel may become critical to its very survival and certainly to America’s continuing support of the Jewish state. The American Jewish population is dwindling, from a height of nearly 4 percent of the U.S. population to under 2 percent now. As Nicholson explains, Christian support, already enormously important, will become only more so.

The second reason for worry is the anti-Israel trend in the evangelical world: as Nicholson puts it, evangelical support for Israel may already have peaked. This shouldn’t come as a surprise: powerful currents in American culture, including the control of most university faculties (even in some evangelical colleges) and of the mass media by the voices of the liberal Left, are pushing young evangelicals away from the beliefs of their parents. Yet few American Jews know much about the evangelical community, let alone about the swings Nicholson lists and analyzes. Most will never have heard of the Palestinian Christian groups whose anti-Israel activities he describes, and are unaware of their growing influence among American evangelicals. For this reason alone, his article, providing new and valuable information, is an important wake-up call.

Paying Illegals to Stay IRS Gives Out Billions Each Year !!!! To crib from Caesar, all immigration policy is divided into three parts: you can enforce the law and deport the illegals, you can ignore them (and there is a lot of that going around), or you can pay them to stay in this country. Not even the White House is publicly advocating the third […]
