    Our general passivity will lead to our demise. Where is your anger, and your disgust for what is now happening in the world- in France, in Israel, in Denmark, in Sweden? In London? WHAT IS HAPPENING TO US JEWS? Doesn’t this disturb you?
    I am really hoping that this is the year that my fellow Jews begin to wake up to their degradation as a people- Am YISRAEL. No matter what we do, no matter how many Nobel Prizes we achieve, or cures for cancers, or technology discoveries, we will be delegitimized and hated for not who we are, but for what we are- JEWS.
    BTW Hasbara is a failure.
    If the blacks can do it, and the Palestinians can do it, we can too. Fight, fight fight back or die —- isn’t your pride worth it. Without self dignity, and pride as a people, we will not exist in the next generation. It is up to us. This is the tipping point, because we are now being cornered. Fight or die.

  • Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu became a fiend of Israel because he has been treated in an unexcusable manner while in Israel. As a guest of the corrent vice FM he was treated like an office clerk from Turkey.

    It is unfortunate, Israel has very few real diplomats. We Need a statesman as Abba Eban.

      I agree with Mister Israel up there.Arrogance is not going make the job of the soldier any easier.Then you can pick up a history book and see that one white boy from England and some tribes of Arabs showed the mighty Turk army the route back to Istanbul for a reason. Quite possibly the reason was arrogance.
