Susan Rice and Dr. Evelyn Farkas have so much in common.
Both served in the Barack Obama administration, Rice at State and Farkas at Defense. Both are in the news – Farkas’ remarks about the “alleged” Russian hacking of Democratic National Committee (DNC) servers, and Rice’s unmasking of private American’s names in government surveillance.
Both have been leaders in the Atlantic Council, which hates Russia almost as much as Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). Other council honchos include Henry Kissinger, Brent Snowcroft and Madeleine Albright – globalists all. The Council is a big deal in war hawk circles, but there is something peculiar. It is financed not only by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Inc., the U.S. State Department, NATO ACT, it has been funded by the Ploughshares Fund, which has received its money from billionaire George Soros’ Open Society Foundations.
And both Rice and Farkas have served on the Atlantic Council alongside Dmitri Alperovitch, co-founder of CrowdStrike, the third-party company hired by the DNC and allowed by the FBI to make its assessment about alleged Russian hacking into the Democratic National Committee (DNC). Dimitri was named in 2013 as one of Foreign Policy’s Top 100 Leading Global Thinkers, along with other globalists, including Angela Merkel, John Kerry, Ben Bernanke and Jeff Bezos.
In April last year, officials at the DNC noticed that their dossiers on Donald Trump had been hacked, Continue reading →
Hillary, Hillary, Hillary…can we still love you when you call us names? And for me, the question is: am I in the “desperate” bucket or the “deplorable” basket, just because I won’t vote for you?
A little background is in order. Continue reading →
In general, and with very few exceptions, the Jews are not known for their sporting ability. From the Greeks and Romans with their Olympic Games, marathons and worship of the human body, through to nowadays, we Jews are more renowned for our brains than our brawn. Yes, we have Aly Raisman, the American Olympic superstar, and Mark Spitz who won 7 gold medals in the ill-fated 1972 Olympics, but Israelis are once again bemoaning our lack of medal-power (although there is still hope with the rhythmic gymnastics team), notwithstanding the two bronze medals won this year by judokas Yarden Gerbi (trained by former silver medallist Yael Arad) and Or Sasson. The one notable exception on Israel’s record was gold medallist Gal Fridman in the sailboard competition in 2004. You can see Israel’s sad showing at the Olympics at this table.
But unbeknownst to most of us, there was…

The sign in Arabic says “Thank you, Hamas”
October is election month for municipalities in the Gaza Strip and West Bank, the first dive into Democracy in 11 years, and politicians everywhere know that the incumbents always want to put on a happy face.
But from the reports of starving children, the disabled tortured by Israeli troops, and a monumental lack of medicine and other supplies, you would think that things were really bad in Gaza.
How bad? The video above was prepared by Hamas to show that things aren’t horrible – in fact, they’re just peachy or whatever that term is in Arabic. People are smiling and holding up signs, saying “Thank you, Hamas.”
Everyone in the video seems so happy, and you wonder how Hamas could produce fake beaches and shopping centers and mansions for the filming. But then, maybe they didn’t produce propaganda from sets, just filmed reality.
At least now, the EU leaders can see what hundreds of millions of Euros goes for in their annual aid projects. They have created a tourist destination a sight prettier than the slums of Paris or the hovels in Athens for unemployed Greeks.
Another view of Gaza, missing from the tourist and election pitch, is the effort to train teens in the proper way to murder a Jew, as illustrated in the following video:
A tale of horror, high fares, privatization and how we give our nation’s wealth to foreign companies
In the two years from 1942 to 1944, some 76,000 French Jews were deported to Nazi death camps by Societé Nationale des Chemins de fer Francais (SNCF), France’s national railway corporation under the Vichy Republic. Of those Jews, it is estimated that 74,000 were killed.
In 2014, after numerous lawsuits and a failed PR campaign that attempted to portray wartime railroad employees resisting orders to deport Jews, the SNCF created a $60 million reimbursement fund for French Holocaust survivors and their families. It was small compensation for entire families murdered.
SNCF in 2010 ranked 214th globally on the Fortune Global 500 list. Continue reading →
French and Arab plan ends Israel as a nation, and doesn’t even invite the Jews to the execution plans
Do French leaders know what the Arab public watches on Palestinian television?
The history of France and the Nazi empire, especially the Vichy government, some of whose senior officials were tried for crimes against humanity, will reach another hate plateau with a May 30 meeting of Arabs and Europeans that will push for an end to Israel.
The Vichy strain in France continues to this day, even denying the French participation in the deportation of Jews for extermination ( link shows timeline of crimes) in Nazi concentration camps, abuses of prisoners, and severe acts against members of the Resistance. Few of the perpetrators were ever punished.
The French have scheduled this Arab-led Israel conference before the U.S. November elections. Do they believe the current administration and its preening Secretary of State are more amenable to their Arab-centric efforts than a new face in the White House? The answer may be yes, as our President strains for a legacy of mostly appeasing the enemies of peace at the expense of America’s friends.
“There is no other solution to the conflict other than a two-state solution, Israelis and Palestinians living side by side in peace and security with Jerusalem a shared capital,” Jean-Marc Ayrault said in a joint statement to four of his favorite newspapers – Liberation, the Wall Street Journal, Al-Quds al-Arabi and Haaretz .
The French final soluition for the conflict will be based on the official 2002 Arab League proposal, he said. That proposal urged:
“1. Requests Israel to reconsider its policies and declare that a just peace is its strategic option as well.
“2. Further calls upon Israel to affirm:
I- Full Israeli withdrawal from all the territories occupied since 1967, including the Syrian Golan Heights, to the June 4, 1967 lines as well as the remaining occupied Lebanese territories in the south of Lebanon.
II- Achievement of a just solution to the Palestinian refugee problem to be agreed upon in accordance with U.N. General Assembly Resolution 194.
III- The acceptance of the establishment of a sovereign independent Palestinian state on the Palestinian territories occupied since June 4, 1967 in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
“3. Consequently, the Arab countries affirm the following:
I- Consider the Arab-Israeli conflict ended, and enter into a peace agreement with Israel, and provide security for all the states of the region.
II- Establish normal relations with Israel in the context of this comprehensive peace.
In short, Israel will be shrunk to a tiny land mass and forced to allow millions of Arabs to take over the government with right of return and their votes. In exchange Israel will get a piece of paper saying the “conflict is ended.”
The U.N. Resolution 194 referenced in the Arab League plan said:
Resolves that the refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbours should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date, and that compensation should be paid for the property of those choosing not to return and for loss of or damage to property which, under principles of international law or in equity, should be made good by the Governments or authorities responsible; Instructs the Conciliation Commission to facilitate the repatriation, resettlement and economic and social rehabilitation of the refugees and the payment of compensation, and to maintain close relations with the Director of the United Nations Relief for Palestine Refugees and, through him, with the appropriate organs and agencies of the United Nations;
The United States, France and the United Kingdom voted for this plan, which would allow millions of people, who were told to leave Israel by the Arab governments, to demand money or citizenship, including even the descendants of the soldiers who invaded the country in 1948.
Today’s French advocates of 194 do not mention that a number of countries voted against the resolution: Afghanistan, Byelorrusian SSR, Cuba, Czechoslovakia, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Pakistan, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Ukrainian SSR, USSR, Yemen, Yugoslavia. They wanted the destruction of Israel, not peace.
The May conference will include the Middle East Quartet (the United States, Russia, European Union and United Nations), the Arab League, the U.N. Security Council and some 20 other countries. The Palestinian Authority has already endorsed the conference, realizing that the Arab League promoting an Arab League initiative has to be good news for them and very bad news for an Israel to be pushed back to a 13-mile width in an age of ICBMs.
This Facebook page (open link) and website was still online today, despite protests to the social site’s Community Standards officials.
Jewish-Born Mark Zuckerberg owns Facebook. Indeed, he is the richest Jewish-born person in the world. Note that I use the term “Jewish-born.” You might think he would support less hatred of Jews.
According to Shurat HaDin (The Israel Law Center), a non-profit legal organization dedicated to the protection of Israel,
“One of the significant characteristics of the current terror wave is the incitement on the social media networks, headed by Facebook…This incitement consists of the Facebook pages of many young Palestinians who inflame their friends to embark on terrorist attacks, provocative videos glorifying and encouraging terrorist attacks, instructions for terrorists “How to Carry out a Terrorist Attack” – all on Facebook.” Read more here.
Pro-Israel blogger Elder of Ziyon reported on Friday that a complaint he had lodged with Facebook about this Blood libel charge being an example of hate speech, was denied.
What does Facebook consider “hate speech”?
The answer is on the policy pages of Facebook, where Community Standards are explained, and the definition seems very clear to this blogger.
Here’s what Facebook says about its standards for posting on its site:
Facebook removes hate speech, which includes content that directly attacks people based on their:
- National origin,
- Religious affiliation,
- Sexual orientation,
- Sex, gender, or gender identity, or
- Serious disabilities or diseases.
Organizations and people dedicated to promoting hatred against these protected groups are not allowed a presence on Facebook. As with all of our standards, we rely on our community to report this content to us.
People can use Facebook to challenge ideas, institutions, and practices. Such discussion can promote debate and greater understanding. Sometimes people share content containing someone else’s hate speech for the purpose of raising awareness or educating others about that hate speech. When this is the case, we expect people to clearly indicate their purpose, which helps us better understand why they shared that content.
You might look at the picture on the site and the strange writing. It can be translated in small part by visitors, but a full translation of this blood libel attack is not provided.
On Monday the claims for credit were swirling as the Israeli government condemned a series of four billboards, which appeared on about 500 BDS posters on the London Underground trains. They looked like genuine ads and were allegedly pasted on tube trains by London Palestine Action as part of this year’s Israeli Apartheid Week.
Yair Lapid, leader of the Yesh Atid party and a former finance minister, said commuters “entered the underground and found a series of antisemitic, anti-Israel signs calling us an apartheid state, accusing us of torturing children, or murder, of terrible things.”
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked Israel’s foreign ministry director, Dore Gold, “… to demand from the British government that the posters be removed,” he told parliamentary colleagues, according to reports in the Israeli media.
When you examine the photos (above and left) of the posters, they appear to be very carefully mounted inside a metal frame, suggesting that the perpetrators spent considerable time posting them. The London Jewish Forum called the posters an act of vandalism and “awful smears that do nothing to contribute to peace and dialogue, placing significant strains on inter-community relations across London”.
London police also called it vandalism and posting on the fly. How can such things happen in the London Underground, you might ask? The answer is that such vandalism – if it was that – cannot go unnoticed. Continue reading →
From Feel the Bern, the above video distorts history and defames Israel
Nearly everyone likes funny, warm Bernie Sanders.
And once upon a time he was a Jew, working in Israel. Now, he isn’t advertising it.
Instead, he portrays himself as an agnostic Jew, not practicing his religion, but apparently trying to be more popular because of it.
NBC gave him a “two for” this past weekend.
Saturday Night Live viewers on NBC saw him spoofing the “typical” Jew, just getting off the early 20th century ship, boasting a European cap and accent, enjoying his name change to be more accepted by the Gentiles. This performance was Bernie’s donation to stereotyping Jews as self-involved schleps, while subtly contrasting himself with the no-good, strong, proud Jews of Israel. Rochester would be proud. “Yes, Mr. Bernie!”
Meet the Press on NBC Sunday showed another side of Sanders. When asked about foreign policy experience, he actually said:
We’ve talked to people like Jim Zogby, talked to the people on J Street to get a broad perspective of the Middle East.
Both J Street and Zogby have continually criticized Israel for its policies in the Palestinian territories. No mention was made by Sanders of any pro-Israel experts.
Sanders has said that he thinks the Palestinians should get more financial help from the U.S., and Israel should have its military aid cut. He almost agrees word for word with Arab League proposals, when he Continue reading →
