Israel and Anne Frank’s Jewishness

editor 23 April 2018

By Caroline Glick.. On the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day, the New Israel Fund announced it signed a partnership agreement with Anne Frank Fonds, the foundation Anne Frank’s father, Otto Frank, established in 1963 to administer the profits from the sales of her diary. Frank’s diary has sold more than 30 million copies in 60 languages since it was first published in 1947. Its sales and global reach make it the most famous book authored by a Jew aside from the Bible. (more…)


Israel at 70: Flourishing against All Odds (+Video)

editor 18 April 2018

By Ambassador Dore Gold.. Israel is celebrating 70 years of national independence, and there’s a huge irony in that number. For it was in the year 70 that the last Jewish Commonwealth was destroyed by the Roman Empire, and the Temple, the center of gravity of the Jewish people, was destroyed. The rebirth of Israel is nothing short of a miracle. It involved dedication, commitment of a national movement that began with the establishment of Zionism, which is the national liberation movement of the Jewish people. (more…)


Palestinians ‘Peoplehood’ Based on a Big Lie

editor 11 April 2018

By Eli E. Hertz.. The Palestinians claim that they are an ancient and indigenous people fails to stand up to historic scrutiny. Most Palestinian Arabs were newcomers to British Mandate Palestine. Until the 1967 Six-Day War made it expedient for Arabs to create a Palestinian peoplehood, local Arabs simply considered themselves part of the ‘great Arab nation’ or ‘southern Syrians.’

“Repeat a lie often enough and people will begin to believe it.”
Nazi propaganda master Joseph Goebbels

“All [that Palestinians] can agree on as a community is what they want to destroy, not what they want to build.”
New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman

There is no age-old Palestinian people. Most so-called Palestinians are relative newcomers to the Land of Israel. (more…)

By Christians for Israel International.. Yom HaZikaron laShoah ve-laG’vurah (יום הזיכרון לשואה ולגבורה; “Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day”), known colloquially in Israel and abroad as Yom HaShoah (יום השואה) and in English as Holocaust Remembrance Day, or Holocaust Day, is observed as Israel’s day of commemoration for the approximately six million Jews and five million others who perished in the Holocaust as a result of the actions carried out by Nazi Germany and its accessories, and for the Jewish resistance in that period.

The Lie of Palestinian ‘Refugees’

editor 10 April 2018

By Jerold Auerbach.. As Israel approaches its 70th anniversary of independence, the time has come to finally resolve the Palestinian refugee problem. By that, I mean the real one — and not the fake news incessantly circulated by Palestinians, their left-wing allies and UNRWA (the organization that nourishes itself on the ever-growing population of invented refugees).

State-of-the-Art Light Show Celebrating King David and History of City Opens in Jerusalem

editor 7 April 2018

By Israel21C.. More than 3,000 years ago, a redheaded shepherd boy from Bethlehem felled a menacing giant with a slingshot. He played the harp and composed the poems immortalized in the book of Psalms. When he ascended to the throne, he established Jerusalem as the capital of the 12 tribes of Israel. The epic story of King David has inspired great painters and sculptors for centuries. Now that story is depicted in 18 larger-than-life projections on the ancient stone walls of the Tower of David Museum in Jerusalem’s Old City.

1946 U.S. Document Reveals Poles Treated Jews As Badly As Germans Did

editor 7 March 2018

By Tamara Zieve.. The report said many Jews preferred to flee, even to Germany, after the war. A declassified US State Department report from 1946 documented the abhorrent treatment of Poland’s Jews before, during and after World War II. The report equated Polish and Nazi treatment of the Jewish population and said many Jews preferred to flee, even to Germany, after the war. The document, titled “The Jews in Poland Since the Liberation,” was obtained by the Simon Wiesenthal Center and shown exclusively to The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday, the same day a Polish governmental delegation arrived in Israel to discuss Warsaw’s contentious “Holocaust law,” which has caused a diplomatic crisis between the two countries.

Rare color footage of the Nazis and their crimes against the Jews [disturbing content]

editor 21 February 2018

By Israel Video Network.. This video of the devil on earth – in full color – is absolutely critical to view. Hitler’s plans to systematically destroy the entire Jewish nation was so beyond the imagination of so many that the idea of anti-semitism going from occasional pogroms to massive killing and then a systematic killing of all Jews was simply beyond anything that could be imagined. This is a very important point to learn for the future. What is unfathomable can indeed become reality. (more…)


In first, Germany to compensate 25,000 Algerian Jewish Holocaust survivors

editor 7 February 2018

By Stuart Winer.. Living under the French Vichy regime which collaborated with the Nazis, they were persecuted for being Jewish; now they are eligible for a one-time payment of $3,183. The German government has agreed to recognize some 25,000 Jewish Algerians as Holocaust survivors eligible for compensation, and they will be able to apply for a one-time grant later this year, a survivors rights organization announced Monday (January 5, 2018).
