Antisemitism: A Specific Phenomenon by Clemens Heni….a review by Asaf Romirowsky The study of antisemitism has taken many turns and twists over the years. The goal remains: understanding where this hatred emanates from and how it continues to cascade throughout the generations. While the scholarship has differed on exact definitions, the signs and trends have been voluminous. Leon Poliakov, one of the early scholars of […]

DR. MORDECHAI KEDAR:Radicalization and Escalation

  The crisis in Egypt is deepening, and both sides of the conflict are becoming increasingly entrenched in their positions. The fatalities that have occurred among Mursi supporters as well as among the military people causes both sides to act on the basis of their hearts and emotions, and not from logic. Both sides think […]

ISRAEL’S ENMITY? THE NEW YORK TIMES DOES IT AGAIN “President Rouhani is sending strong signals that he will dispatch a pragmatic, experienced team to the table when negotiations resume, possibly next month. That’s when we should begin to see answers to key questions: How much time and creative thinking are he and President Obama willing to invest in a negotiated solution, the only […]

NOAH BECK: INDIA AND ISRAEL, DEMOCRACIES THAT SHOULD DEEPEN TIES At first glance, Hindu-majority India, with approximately 1.2 billion people and an entire subcontinent, would seem to have little in common with Jewish-majority Israel, which has only about eight million people living on territory that’s just roughly 15 times the size of India’s capital city. While full diplomatic relations were established between Jerusalem and […]


Colin Powell recently attacked election integrity and claimed there was no voter fraud. That’s dishonest and false, but it was good enough to get a spot on CBS’s Face the Nation this Sunday. His ticket to the show:

You can say what you like, but there is no voter fraud.

Colin Powell should learn a bit about people like Melowese Richardson, Lessadolla Sowers, Sonia Solis, Eric Haynes, Linda Wells, Giancarlo Sopo, John Moretina, Clara Moretina, Ernest Johnson, Kaarbo (aka Shawn Marie Melton), Jose Antonio Ramirez-Velasquez, Michael Marshall, Marguerite Kloos, Dilsa Maria Saddler, Rep. Stephen “Stat” Smith (D-Mass.), Leonard Brown, Chad Gigowski, Andrew Shepherd, Brittany Rainey, Caitlin Haycock, Brian Uecker, Fozia Nawaz, Bill Di Giorgio, Anna Nicole Nelson, Carlton Kaarbo and Richard Alverson.

And these are just charges and convictions over the last few months. But I’ll bet Colin Powell never heard of any of these criminals. He’s simply in service of the Democratic Left now, and that gets him a spot on CBS’s Face the Nation

P. DAVID HORNIK:Israel: Leper or Light Unto the Nations? Part 3: From Woodstock to the Promised Land ****

“From there it was a long journey to the people that dwells alone, for whom the bombers are background noise. The Woodstockers didn’t know that in this world nothing of any real value — like a restored homeland — comes easy. That you may have to guard it 24/7 and make sacrifices — not for peace, but to survive at all.Israel dwells alone in having almost no margin to indulge dreams and fantasies. Yes, it too has indulged some —and always paid quickly for it. Meanwhile we hear the din and chatter out there about peace and solutions — not far removed, in its grasp of reality, from the Woodstockers.”

And I dreamed I saw the bombers
Riding shotgun in the sky,
And they were turning into butterflies
Above our nation.

Thus sang Joni Mitchell in “Woodstock,” a song of haunting beauty that she wrote in 1969 at the height of Vietnam War protest. Like all peaceniks, she assumes that “our nation” (technically, she was Canadian) is responsible for the hostilities, and if its bombers would just turn into butterflies, peace would reign.
In many places in Israel — a small, cramped country — you can hear the bombers in the sky on training flights. It most piques your interest when you hear them at night. Usually they’re just practicing night flying, but it could mean there’s been—or is going to be—an incident somewhere.

Obama Administration Covers up Missile Theft: Jack Kelly By Jack Kelly / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette The Obama administration is covering up the theft of 400 surface to air missiles by “some very ugly people,” the lawyer for a Benghazi whistleblower told WMAL Radio in Washington D.C. last week. Joe DiGenova, a former U.S. attorney, represents Mark Thompson, who was Deputy Coordinator for Operations in the […]


After a great deal of fuss about national security and terrorism, sentence was passed and Bradley Manning, the man at the center of the storm who used a Lady Gaga CD to smuggle out classified information, announced that what he really wanted was to live as a woman.

Posting a photo wearing the least convincing wig outside of clown college, Manning announced that from now on, his name will be Chelsea.

Life might have been simpler for everyone if Manning had just gone straight to the bad wig. In the age of Obama, his right to pretend to be a woman would have been protected with more vigor than the lives of American soldiers serving in Afghanistan.
But that’s not what Manning really wanted.

In 1974, Jerry Dean Michael, a mentally ill ex-con and con-artist, put on a wig and pretended to be Liz Carmichael, the widow of a NASA engineer with a car that could 70 miles to the gallon.

“I’ll knock the hell out of Detroit,” Michael declared, in his persona as Liz Carmichael. “I’ll rule the auto industry like a queen.” That last line was a joke that it took a while for anyone to get.

Liz Carmichael and his plans to rule Detroit, now a place filled with feral dogs and politicians which probably would have been better off ruled by a lunatic queen with a fiberglass car for a throne, received nearly as much attention then as Bradley Manning did now. Unfortunately Liz’s car, that was going to revolutionize the automotive industry could no more run, than Michael or Bradley could become women.

Michael fled, was arrested, released on bail, fled again and was arrested living, once again, under a female name.

DR. MOSHE DANN: THE CRITICAL TIMETABLE FOR NEGOTIATIONS Since, as most predict, Arab-Israeli negotiations will fail, why try again now?  Overlooked is the timetable: nine months, or more. This means stretching the process until mid-term elections in the US, in 2014, which set the stage for the presidential election in 2016. The timing of negotiations, therefore, has nothing to do with achieving a durable peace, but pressuring Israel to freeze new building […]
