  • 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! ;)

    In his new play Mr. Goldberg Goes to Tel Aviv, playwright Oren Safdie tackles an issue that he has a major concern with: the relationship between Israelis and left-leaning Diaspora Jews with their “I know better” critical views. At the heart of the one-act play is Tony, a Jewish and gay Palestinian sympathizer who expresses strong anti-Israel sentiments when the play begins and at one point even sides with a Palestinian terrorist who holds his captive. Tony, who is also an [...]

Selznick. Adjusted for inflation, “Gone with the Wind” remains the highest-grossing movie ever made. It earned the 1939 Academy Award for Best Picture, the same honor another Selznick film, “Rebecca,” garnered in 1940. Selznick [...]

    ‘Sheriff of Mars’ Unveils Endearing Life of Jewish Music Star Hidden in the Fields of France

    JNS.org – It was an era of steel strings, guitar heroes, and storytellers—high on heroin, rebellious. Outlaw country music, the hallmark of Nashville’s powerful and angry music scene of the 1970s, was the brew of greats such as Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and Townes Van Zandt. But there is another, little-known music hero of that era: Daniel Antopolsky. A Jewish lad from Augusta, Ga.—the son of immigrants who settled in the south and ran a hardware store on Main Street—the [...]
