Barack Obama’s Popularity and His Annual Stage of Disunion

State of Union speechAmerica’s states, fifty stars orderly represented over a background of blue in our flag, may be said to be united … but the folks who populate them certainly are not. We may claim to be the United States of America, but rest assured that we are definitely not the United People of America; never have been, and likely never will be, no matter what the pledge of allegiance might deceitfully say, or the colorful fantasy-pens we utilize in writing our history… or the misinformation in which we, fat-dumb-and-happy, live.

Almost everyone else, including most Muslim commentators, condemned the attack for the horrible crime it certainly was.

About Buried Phosphorus and Thuggish Diplomacy

by Adam Keller

In 1974, as a young soldier just inducted into the ranks of the Israel Defense Forces, I was among a group of soldiers whom the platoon sergeant took on a tour of the munitions dump, showing us the different types of ammunition used by the army. Among other things, he pointed to a pile of wooden boxes which were marked "Exploding Smoke" and said with...

Galant's Gallant Act

There used to be a joke about a sadist and a masochist.

"Hit me! Beat me! Kick me!" the masochist pleads with the sadist. The sadist smiles a cruel smile and slowly answers: "No!"

That, more or less, reflects the situation on our northern border at this moment.

The Fateful Triangle: Russia, Ukraine and the Jews

The erotic reliefs of Hindu temples with their gravity-defying and anatomy-challenging positions have found a new modern competitor in the Ukrainian crisis. Each party wants to get the Jews on their side, while claiming that the other side is anti-Jewish and a Jewish puppet at once. This impossible, Kama-Sutraesque position is the result of extremely confusing alliances: the Kiev...

Palestine at the ICC: Of course Israel hates it

by Rachel Shabi

The entirely predictable and expected reaction has happened.

  With Soraya Boyd
Evocative Just to think of Palestine is evocative. From the lush orange orchards to the laden olive groves, many examples could be provided to confirm the fact that prior to the creation of Israel, Palestinian society thrived in all areas of human endeavour. The splendour of Jaffa was aptly captured in the photogropah which appears below, renowned for...

by Dr. Nasir Khan

Bipartisan Senate members drafted new legislation. Imposing new sanctions if Iran doesn't agree to US demands by June 30. Regarding its legitimate nuclear program. With no military component. No evidence suggests one. It's no different from similar programs in dozens of other countries.

The Troops Are Destroying Our Country

The mindset that is common to U.S. troops  serving overseas is that they are all doing it for America, for us, for our rights and freedoms, for our safety and security. They’ll all tell you that they are doing it because they love their country.

Netanyahu: Prime Minister of Israel or the Leader of the ‘Jewish People’?

Netanyahu's presence at the "march of the millions" in France protesting the Charlie Hebdo killings and the murderous assault on a Jewish supermarket, in which four French Jewish citizens were killed by the perpetrator, was not only an offence to the other heads of states gathered there but also to France and its political class.

A Personal Note on Jewish Statistics

The British political establishment is in a state of panic. A poll revealed last week that “a quarter of Jews in Britain have considered leaving the country in the last two years and well over half (58%) feel they have no long term future in Europe.” This could be a potential disaster...

Je Suis Hebdo

Decades after being dismissed by George S. Kaufman as a genre that “closes on Saturday night,” satire, like the measles and mumps, is making a comeback. And in many quarters, remains the most feared of the three conditions.
