The “Sisterhood of Women” and the Torture of Nigerian Girls

230 teenage girls are still missing after having been kidnapped by Islamists in Nigeria two weeks ago. There are even reports that these girls are being sold into slavery and forced into marriages with their captors. Where are the news outlets covering this? Has CNN spent the number of hours that they did when covering the missing Malaysian airliner? Where ...

Call a Spade, a Spade

As we all by now know, LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been fined and banned from basketball. It is clear he is a racist and very clear that the NBA did the right thing today. Some are claiming that he has the First Amendment – freedom of speech – to back him. No, all the First Amendment does is ...

The Politics of Funeral Attendance

Yesterday was former Prime Minister of Israel Ariel Sharon’s funeral. He spent his life defending Jews and the State of Israel. He was a proud Jew, showing his support for the “Jewishness” of the State by visiting the holy Temple Mount in Jerusalem, the only holy place Jews have in the world. While not perfect, it seems that Sharon did ...

Funny, But Not

Just a few thoughts on the Syrian conflict… To begin with, our Commander-in-Chief was willing to go it alone in Syria with the French covering our back. Really? That’s almost a joke. Comical in so many ways. Then our esteemed leader did a 180 when he realized that he really didn’t want to go to war, didn’t mean to draw ...

Partners in Peace?

Whack, whack, bam, you’re in a fight for your life. You’re tired, you’ve done this before. You just want to be left alone in peace and quiet – you drop your hands, you’re done. But the other guy isn’t. He was just waiting you out. This is Israel. Israel is tired of fighting a war in every generation. She’s done ...

What Would Muhammad Do?

It looks like John Kerry, our esteemed Secretary of State, is working hard to earn his money – shuttling back and forth trying to return the Israelis and “Palestinians” to peace negotiations. It would be impressive if this meant something, but I guess he needs something relatively useful to do with his time. For negotiations to be successful, one must ...

The Zimmerman Trial Was A Disgrace

I am not one who likes television cameras in the court room, but regarding the Zimmerman trial, I must make an exception. I am angry with our justice system. As I watched day after day of the trial, it was obvious that the prosecution had no case. Almost every witness they brought to support their side ended up sounding like ...

The Terrorists in Sheep’s Clothing

One could think that between the soon-to-be civil war in Egypt and watching the Zimmerman defense team wipe the floor with the prosecution, that there is no other news happening around the world. I’m sorry to disappoint, but there is. Unfortunately, news comes from Israel where we learn that none other than Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been secretly meeting ...

It’s Hard To See With Your Eyes Closed

David Cameron has issued a defiant message after the murder of a British soldier in London… “What happened in Woolwich yesterday has sickened us all,” the prime minister said on Thursday. “The people who did this were trying to divide us. They should know something like this will only bring us together, make us stronger.” Speaking outside Downing Street after ...

It’s Time for a National Registry

There’s a national epidemic at hand – and nobody cares. It’s scary. Every 169 minutes somebody dies from this terrible epidemic. Thousands of men, women and children are killed and injured every year – and nobody cares. A billion dollars was spent last year fighting this epidemic – but it barely makes the evening news. What are we talking about? ...

King Obama: Ruling by Executive Action

When the national village idiot, Joe Biden, suggested that President Obama may take executive action rather than work through Congress to pass new gun legislation, I thought – eh, Biden’s lips are moving again. But here we are today, with the President saying just that. My understanding is the vice president’s going to provide a range of steps that we ...

Calls for “restraint” have begun. Yes, restraint. After months of hundreds of missiles raining down on Israeli heads – murdering, injuring and destroying – Israel finally decided to do something serious. They killed a top Hamas terrorist, best known for orchestrating the kidnapping of Gilad Shalit. Oh, it was then that the world decided to finally take notice of Israel’s ...

Barbarians in the Streets

A violence prone-minority with a bad attitude and no sense of humor. Yep. Seems like you’ve met the Muslims before… Yes, the humorless Muslims are back and protesting in a city near you. Not only in the nascent pan-Islamic caliphate, but in London, England. That darn YouTube video seems to really be getting under their skin. Ten thousand Muslims descended ...

Jewish versus “Palestinian Culture”

Stop the presses… the “Palestinians” are whining again. They’ve been insulted. Mitt Romney, while in Israel, said that the “Jewish culture” has made Israel successful. The “Palestinians” find this to be a racist comment. Of course they also thought that taking a moment of silence during the opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games to remember the eleven murdered Israelis during ...
