A very happy 86th birthday to Holocaust survivor and author Elie Wiesel, who has been an outspoken voice against anti-Semitism and bigotry, as well as the living embodiment of the strength of the Jewish people.
Share to speak out against the Palestinian Authority for arresting Palestinians for criticizing government officials on Facebook.
Free Speech is the most fundamental of rights for any citizen and we condemn this just as we condemn the oppression of dissenting opinions in Iran, Syria, or any other country. Shame on the PA.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu gave a powerful address at the UN: comparing the militant Islamists of Hamas with ISIS, warning the world of the nuclear ambitions of the Islamic Republic of Iran and criticizing the libels in President Abbas recent UN speech.
PM Netanyahu mentioned the hypocrisy of countries praising action against ISIS but condemning Israel’s recent defensive action against Hamas.
He also highlighted the growing ties between Israel and Gulf states that are also threatened by Iran and spoke of potential partnerships between Israel and other countries in the Middle East.
He spoke of Israel’s desire for peace and need for iron-clad security arrangements.
He ended with a Biblical quote: “For the sake of Zion I will not be silent, for the sake of Jerusalem I will not be still”.
Shana tova to all! May 5775 be a sweet, healthy, and happy new year.
Apparently “Never Again” is nothing more than a slogan as chants of “Death to Jews!” can be heard once again on the streets of Europe.
From the immigrant enclaves of the Parisian suburbs to the drizzly bureaucratic city of Brussels to the industrial heartland of Germany, Europe’s old demon returned this summer. “Death to the Jews!” shouted protesters at pro-Palestinian rallies in Belgium and France. “Gas the Jews!” yelled marchers at a similar protest in Germany.
The ugly threats were surpassed by uglier violence. Four people were fatally shot in May at the Jewish Museum in Brussels. A Jewish-owned pharmacy in this Paris suburb was destroyed in July by youths protesting Israel’s military campaign in Gaza. A synagogue in Wuppertal, Germany, was attacked with firebombs. A Swedish Jew was beaten with iron pipes. The list goes on.
Go home huh?
Home in Israel.
Because when you say “go home,” there’s nowhere else it could mean but הארץ.
“Censorship reflects a society’s lack of confidence in itself. It is a hallmark of an authoritarian regime”
In the style of North Korean paranoia, Iran is moving to ban WhatsApp, Viber, Tango, and other messaging apps that allow phone calls and texts using internet or data. The Iranian Judiciary says these apps were used to spread ‘insults’ against government officials, including “supreme leader.”
We look forward to a day when Iran will be a free country that values freedom and individual rights more than fanaticism and bigotry.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu:
"Some esteemed commentators in the West are saying that the major powers need to go easy on Iran’s nuclear program so that Iran will fight ISIS. Iran is fighting ISIS for their own interests. They are fighting over who will be the ruler of the Islamist world that they want to set over the entire world. It is as if Assad would say 'Give me back my chemical weapons so that I can fight ISIS.' Both are absurd.”
