A Moment of Silence for Jews? You Must be Joking

It’s now 40 years since the 1972 Olympics. 40 years since the Munich massacre funded by now-Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas. 40 years since the Games amazingly continued after 11 of the Israeli delegation were murdered. Two widows of the murdered athletes have requested from the Olympic committee for a moment of silence during the Olympic opening ceremonies Friday night. ...

Breaking News: Murder is Illegal

I have a sad, and what seems to be a little known fact that I want to share with all of you. Criminals don’t care about laws – that’s why they are known as “criminals” and not “law-abiding” citizens. Shocking, I know. Here’s another shocker. Murder is already illegal in all 50 states of the union. Amazing. Carrying a gun ...

Was Yasser Arafat Murdered? Who Cares.

The news world is all abuzz with the possibility that “Palestinian” leader Yasser Arafat was murdered. The big story was broken by the most “trustworthy” of sources… al-Jazeera, a news network sometimes known for its terrorist ties. Al-Jazeera’s investigation into Arafat’s death has revealed that his clothing has traces of the radioactive material polonium-210, suggesting that radioactive poisoning led to ...

All Hail President Obama, the Benevolent Dictator

We’re all sitting and holding our collective breath waiting to hear the decision from the Supreme Court about the constitutionality of the health care law. But we shouldn’t worry too much, we’ve been assured by the Obama administration that they have a contingency plan if it is struck down. Mind you, we don’t know exactly what the plan is – ...

Pushing Egypt into the Abyss

The crowds in Egypt’s Tahrir Square have returned in response to the military controlled Supreme Constitutional Court’s decision to disband the parliament. But who are these protestors? They are supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood, the organization that was banned under the dictatorship of Hosni Mubarak, and pro-Islamists. They want to see Egypt turned from a relatively pro-western, secular state to ...

Israel Independence Day – To be a Free People in Our Land

Last week we commemorated Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. We remember the 6 million Jews that were murdered by the Nazis, 1.5 million of those being children, simply because they were Jewish. Today we commemorate Yom HaZikaron, The Day of Remembrance – remembering the thousands who fell defending the State of Israel and those who were murdered in terrorist attacks, ...

ObamaCare Must be Repealed

Charles Krauthammer makes an excellent case against ObamaCare – a must read. The point he leaves off on is certainly one to ponder: In 2010, when all this lay hazily in the future, the sheer arrogance of Obamacare energized a popular resistance powerful enough to deliver an electoral shellacking to Obama. Yet two years later, as the consequences of that ...

Could Thomas Friedman Be Right?

It’s really amazing that Thomas Friedman gets paid to write. Really. How come I can’t find someone to pay me for ridiculous opinions? His article, “We Need a Second Party“, laments that the Republican Party has become radicalized and is no longer in touch with it’s “conservative” base – creating an inability to settle on a candidate and therefore, the ...

The “Palestinians” – A Fictional People

Everyone is in a tizzy over the Palestinian bid for United Nations’ recognition of “Palestine” as a member state. Will they go through with the bid? Won’t they? Can the United States stop them? Should they? What no one is doing is challenging the Palestinian claim to the lands known as the “West Bank” – or in fact their claim ...

Historical Fiction Anyone? Cue 1967

I was reading through a pretty evenhanded article dealing with Canada’s opposition to Palestinian statehood – when all of a sudden it a took a sharp turn into the land of bias. There were a couple statements in particular that gave me pause and a chuckle. The article interviewed Rami Khouri, a “leading Mideast analyst” based in Lebanon, “I think ...
