Israel cut off from air?

How should Israel feel about trusting Putin's Bitch?

Yesterday, one missile, likely from Gaza, struck the ground in the Tel Aviv suburb of Lod, near the David Ben-Gurion Airport. Shortly afterward, Delta Air Lines Flight 468, on final approach to Ben-Gurion after crossing the Atlantic from New York, abruptly turned around to land at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris. The airline suspended all flights two and from Israel until further notice. United Air Lines did the same. Then the Federal Aviation Administration said it would not allow any U.S. carrier to fly into or out of Israel for at least twenty-four hours. (And at roughly 12:35 p.m. EDT, the FAA extended that ban for another twenty-four hours.)

Israel invades Gaza

How should Israel feel about trusting Putin's Bitch?

Thirteen years of pseudo-war, continued terrorism, and lately unprovoked attacks came to an end today. Israel has now invaded Gaza, from land, sea and air. The only remaining question is: will they stay?

Jews not like Muslims

How should Israel feel about trusting Putin's Bitch?

Lorna Salzman, author of “Jews Behaving Like Muslims,” featured in the New English Review, claims “Zionists and observant Jews” complain like Muslims regarding The Death of Klinghoffer, an “opera” to be produced at the Met. Salzman, evidently an anti-Zionist and self-hating Jew, disregarded the spirit of the complaints. Rather, she uses moral relativism (trickery) to equate disparate events and reactions, villains with victims. The two cultures are disparate. (Observant) Jews don’t behave like Muslims.

The board is nailed

A typical Muslim national flag: green with a white crescent and star.

The Daily Iowan Editorial Board appears to have fallen prey to some very dangerous rhetoric – as though influenced by an un-American entity. Rather than provide an overview or opinion, their editorial presents a plethora of deceitful statements in defense of Islamic sharia law – preaching that it is compatible with religious liberty.

Iraq in Bible prophecy?

Whore of Babylon. Future of Iraq?

While many preachers say that all biblical prophecies have been fulfilled, there are a few that remain unfulfilled and are puzzling – especially the ones that prophesy about Iraq. Don’t bother looking for the word “Iraq” in your Bible. You won’t find it. You will, however you will find Babylon, which is modern day Iraq. But don’t be confused, the Bible speaks about two Babylons – the physical country of Iraq and “mystery” Babylon, which is a one world government. For these purposes, only physical Iraq is being discussed.

Cowards and tyrants

When the brave men moved out, the cowards stayed behind.

The recent debacle in Iraq raises many questions: questions about whether or not we should have gone there; questions about the wisdom of pulling our troops out; questions about nation-building and spreading democracy. To be sure, all of these questions are legitimate. However, there is a side of this issue that has yet to be discussed: the role the coward plays in all of this.

Metropalistan Opera

A jihad opera about the Achille Lauro atrocity will still go on at last report.

Canceling the simulcast of The Death of Klinghoffer does not exculpate any of the personnel affiliated with the opera if the show will be presented on stage as scheduled. Because Peter Gelb acknowledged the “genuine concern in the international Jewish community,” he is not oblivious to the impropriety. Yet he continues unimpeded. He may well be an active partner to the insult, an accomplice to Alice Goodman’s rejection of their mutual heritage. Or he lacks the capacity to see that this production should also be of enormous concern to the greater American community. It would appear that this may well rank with the Bavarian Oberammergau that continues to inspire antisemitism – but not only antisemitism. This perverted story is an act of jihad.

Bowe Bergdahl no prize

Bowe Bergdahl

Private, now sergeant, Bowe Bergdahl was never any prize. He deserted his post at least twice before finally walking off his post and into the arms of the enemy. His teammates have said after his capture, roadside bombs were suddenly more accurate than ever. Before leaving the base, he sent all his belongings home. He then sent an email saying he would like to renounce his citizenship and join the Taliban. Witnesses heard him asking in English where he could find Taliban people. And from recently declassified documents, we now learn he converted to Islam while he was “in captivity.”

Pope Francis and his fruits

Pope Francis forgot to mention the Vatican walls

The security barrier certainly causes much contention. Despite the enormous length and breadth of China’s Great Wall, Israel’s protective shield is more debated. Although Saudi Arabia’s $700 million electrified wall is grander, Israel’s is more maligned. Thailand’s 75 km barrier with Malaysia was also constructed to protect against Muslims, yet Israel’s is more vilified. Even though more walls exist in the UK to separate Protestants from Catholics, Pope Francis Xavier finds Israel’s more attention-worthy. Neither does this pope mention the massive walls around the Vatican, yet the surrounding Italians are peaceful, charming and friendly.

Hashtag won

The hashtag goes international.

On April 21, 2014, the Islamic terrorist extremist organization Boko Haram kidnapped 234 young Christian girls from their school in Chibok, Nigeria. In response, First Lady Michelle Obama stood pouty-faced in front of a camera, holding a sign begging Islamist militants in Nigeria, “#BringBackOurGirls.”
