JBlog Roundup: The Lessons of Nude Unicycling

“Having lost the Freedom Tower designation, losing the symbolic 1,776  height seems almost an afterthought. The 1,776 number was an artifact of Daniel Libeskind, the original architect, and his vision for the site. That vision was mostly discarded, along with its “sky gardens” and windmills. The “1,776″ height is about all that remains of the German-Jewish architect’s proposal. And regardless of whether we count the antenna as a spire or not, it will not be the tallest building in the world. Those can be found in the places that funded the terrorists, Saudi Arabia and Dubai, which have used slave labor to build glass and steel pyramids to the glory of their own pharaohs.

“The Empire State Building, the Grande Dame of New York skyscrapers, has a roof height of around a 100 feet or 30 meters lower. The difference between a skyscraper built during the Great Depression and one built during the 21st Century Depression is around 100 feet and about a century of aesthetics. Where the spire of the Empire State Building is an organic extension of it, the one atop OWTC is awkwardly placed, it’s just there making time and filling up the space.”

Definitely worth a click.

The average Israeli is remarkably stupid and thick-headed when it comes to the sanctity of freedom of speech.

It's business as usual as Gazans repair the tunnels used to smuggle in the long-range rockets that hit Tel Aviv.

Some of these Gazan tunnels were estimated to have cost $3 million to construct, but will they sustain continued flooding by rain and sewer water?

Mayor Shimoni was looking to provide security, albeit in an unpopular way, because his prime minister has not been able to. Calling him names does not change the fact that Israeli civilians are not safe from being murdered in the street by blood-crazy Arab individuals.

If anyone has had any delusions about this not being a religious war, and anything but a religious war, one need only connect the images that are emerging from this morning’s massacre of four Jewish men in the middle of their morning prayer to the images of Jews massacred in Hebron, in 1929.

Published at Jewish Business News. It began last year with an announcement by Israel’s Ministry of Education, of a pilot study using digitally converted books and other teaching materials, which students would access with their tablets. Legally, teaching with tablets in Israeli schools is contingent on parental consent, especially since it’s the parents who were […]
