Jewish Voice for Peace’s Hidden Agenda

editor 6 June 2017

By Rebecca Zagorsky.. When starting a political movement, choosing the right name is perhaps the most important step. We tend to make snap decisions about whether or not to support an organization based on what its name implies. The danger, of course, is that an organization can misrepresent itself with false connotations. Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) has done just that, because the group does not represent the views of most Jews — and it does not stand for peace.

editor 5 June 2017

By Caroline Glick.. In US academic tradition, university administrators choose commencement speakers they believe embody the zeitgeist of their institutions and as such, will be able to inspire graduating students to take that spirit with them into the world outside. In this context, it makes perfect sense that Ayman El-Mohandes, dean of the Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy at City University of New York (CUNY), invited Linda Sarsour to serve as commencement speaker at his faculty’s graduation ceremony.

Denial Still Flows Over Londonistan

editor 3 June 2017

By Melanie Phillips.. In the wake of the jihadi human bomb attack in Manchester (May 22, 2017), Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May said: “We struggle to comprehend the warped and twisted mind that sees a room packed with young children not as a scene to cherish but an opportunity for carnage.”
Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel said: “ It is unbelievable that somebody has used a joyful pop concert to kill or seriously injure so many people.”A headline in the Washington Post read: “In suburban Manchester, a search for what might have motivated the attacker”.
“Struggle to comprehend”? “Unbelievable”? “What might have motivated the attacker”? Really?? Read more »

The Over-Dramatization of Israel’s “Dilemma”

editor 3 June 2017

By Dr. Max Singer.. BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 479, May 28, 2017

Executive Summary: Israel is not facing a dilemma about how much, if any,  land to give up from the West Bank, because the Palestinians will not agree to take land and cannot be forced to do so. The Palestinian community sees peace with Israel as defeat in their 100-year struggle. Continued Israeli occupation is one of the Palestinians’ best weapons against Israel, and they will not give it up while their war to eliminate Israel continues. Read more »

editor 1 June 2017

By Ben Cohen.. As further details emerge of the brutal murder of an Orthodox Jewish woman in a Paris suburb at the hands of a Muslim assailant last month, French Jews are increasingly worried and angered by what one prominent member of the community called an “organized silence” surrounding the case.

Dr. Sarah Halimi — a 66-year-old pensioner living in the Paris suburb of Belleville — was murdered in the early hours of April 4 by Kada Traore, a 27-year-old immigrant from Mali.

Why End Times? (39) – Chapter 4 – Babylon

editor 1 June 2017

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book Why End Times? Chapter 4 – Babylon

Three beasts
Revelation 12-13 speaks of three beasts. Hislop explains that this,   in part, represents a spiritual objection to the development of the three main forms of Babylonian religions. First of all there is “…an enormous red dragon” (Revelation: 12:3) – literally a snake/serpent in Greek. Red represents fire and blood. Ezekiel 23:14 says: “…But she carried her prostitution still further. She saw men portrayed on a wall, figures of Chaldeans portrayed in red” i.e. in red paint. And we have already seen that this represents the worship of fire and the serpent in the Babylonian religious systems. Read more »
