  • I cant get over the ati semite attitudes developing due to wrong media coverage and those who are so easily influenced by untruths

  • well, I was sitting at a residence in Ashkelon in January when I heard what had to be a rocket hit and rattle the windows… yes, it happens all the time said my hosts… two more came a couple of minutes later… I ran outside expecting our guys to respond immediately… nobody was concerned? My attitude is that we need to move these terrorists out of rocket range or ELIMINATE them. Clean out a 10km strip and retake the Philadelphi corridor. No more terrorists or infiltrators period… you shoot you die…

    Our President, Barak Obama, is not particularly a dear friend of Israel, however, he will not toss Israel under the bus. Israel is smart enough to know they must be ready to stand alone in the world and will not rely on the U.S. or any other country. They are very astute and intelligent for such a tiny country, and their backs are against the sea. I have a world of faith in them to take car of themselves. I have visited Israel three times and am totally in awe of the
    country! Plan to make another trip in a few years when I am old and decrepit! ;)

    Prayers from Florida, USA. Please pray for all of us who are wotking so hard to get this president out of office and restore a strong relationship with you.

    Removing Jesus’ Jewish Identity From Artwork

    In a strong statement that challenges the historic divide between Christianity and Judaism, Pope Francis recently proclaimed, “Inside every Christian is a Jew.” But if you look at Renaissance artworks that depict Jesus, you will not find any evidence of a Jew inside the Christianized Jesus — even though the Gospels in the New Testament tell us that Jesus was Jewish to the core. Getting that point across to the public is a daunting task, as I learned in interviews I [...]

    Recycling His Roots

    JNS.org – Having started his career playing on his family’s pots and pans, Jewish musician Billy Jonas has maintained this homemade performance ethic while spreading his messages of simple living and environmentalism to a shared home throughout the world. After beginning in the kitchen, Jonas soon moved to the music room, where he picked up the piano, guitar, and trombone. These days, the multi-talented multi-instrumentalist plays on with pretty much anything he can find, including cans, bottles buckets, and other recycled-object [...]

    JNS.org – Sara Davidson’s The December Project is a new book that should be read by all senior citizens, and by those who hope to live a long life, for it raises a question that most of us have not been taught how to answer: What should we do in that final stage of our lives? Many of us continue working past the traditional retirement age of 65, not because we need the money and not because we find the [...]

    Why the Holocaust Occurred in Germany, and Why So Few Resisted (REVIEW)

    It’s hard to make a new contribution to the field of Holocaust studies,  but German historian Götz Aly accomplishes just that in Why the Germans, Why the Jews? His premise is that the origins of the Holocaust were rooted in the specific anti-Semitism found in Germany in the decades and centuries before World War II. Aly (who is not Jewish) seeks to prove his theory by studying only pre-Holocaust history, and tracing how the German people’s envy and hatred of [...]

    Looking at Anti-Israel Celebrities and Their Brands

    JNS.org – During the current conflict in Gaza a number of celebrities have voiced their opinions in support of either the Israeli or Palestinian positions. But others—be it during Operation Protective Edge or at other times—have gone further than simply supporting the Palestinians by actively supporting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel, making false accusations about the Jewish state, ignoring Israel’s position on the conflict, or justifying the actions of the terrorist group Hamas. Many of these [...]
