In an Ocean of Islamic Hatred We Discovered True Friends

Sinem Tezyapar has been laboring over the virtual pages of The Jewish Press to debate against Islamic anti-Semitism.

Turkish Muslim leader Adnan Oktar meeting with former Israeli Chief Rabbi Israel Lau.

The Jewish Press has been widely and wildly criticized for giving voice to a young Turkish, Muslim author named Sinem Tezyapar, who is, essentially, a spokesperson for author and television personality Adnan Oktar, pen named Harun Yahya, also a Turkish religious Muslim.

Oktar and his followers (feel free to use the terms “Sect” or “Cult,” it’s not anything they haven’t heard before) are no friends of the secularist establishment in Turkey. Oktar himself has done some serious time in Turkish prison, and his followers live in constant fear of persecution. They are also hated and regularly harassed by fascistic Muslims such as the Al Qaida thugs.

After a fairly jaded start, in which Oktar, or people in his employ, published several books denying the Holocaust and attacking Israel, this Muslim leader began a kind of transformation. He became better acquainted with Judaism and with Zionist history through some new Jewish friends (e.g. Jerusalem-based writer Ehud Tokatly) he was making over the Internet. He recognized his mistakes, apologized for the Holocaust denial book–which he had not authored, and started forging a brand new Muslim vision of a peaceful Middle East in which Israel is not only a Jewish Homeland ruling over its entire biblical territory, but also a place where the Jewish Temple is rebuilt in Jerusalem to become the center of adoration by the entire faithful world.

In addition, Adnan Oktar has played host to major Jewish and Israeli figures, including former Israeli Chief Rabbi Israel Lau, the late Rabbi Menachem Froman, and several past and present Israeli politicians, including many of the Shas leadership.

Sinem Tezyapar, essentially representing her teacher’s lessons, has been laboring over the virtual pages of The Jewish Press to debate against Islamic antisemitism, and presenting through cited verses a positive and optimistic vision of the Koran. At every turn, she has expressed nothing but love and acceptance of Jews and the Torah tradition. I’ve been responsible for bringing her work to this website and for preparing it for publication, and so I’ve been intimately familiar with it. There are no false notes here, no hidden agendas.

And so I was taken aback by the vitriolic response of so many of our readers, who attacked Sinem either as a naïve simpleton who doesn’t really understand what a hateful religion she follows, or a sinister Svengali, looking to trap innocent Jews in her web of lies.

At this stage of the game, the caustic debate has spread beyond our own website, to dedicated websites and Facebook pages, intended to smear both the author and us, the supposedly duped Jewish Press. That’s why I feel compelled to respond, so that we’re on the record, rather than to allow some outsider decide what our position might be.

For the record, then, and please feel free to copy and paste this to your hearts’ content (you got that, Israel Matzav?), here are the reasons why The Jewish Press has been publishing these articles:

First, Sinem and Oktar are not promoting terrorism, on the contrary, they openly and unequivocally denounce violence, hatred, anti-Semitism and terrorism.

That’s huge. As a Jew, member of a persecuted minority, my first inquiry regarding a gentile person must be: is he interested in killing me? It’s also recommended to anyone else when picking friends and loved ones, but to Jews it’s absolutely essential.

So, while millions of Muslims want me dead in many different hellish ways, these folks from Istanbul don’t. I find it refreshing and a very good start towards a better future. In fact, once I’m convinced—and I am—that they don’t want me dead, I don’t really care how truly devout they are, how chaste they are (or are not), and what are their preferred peccadilloes. It’s a group of monotheistic gentiles what don’t want me dead – I’m totally happy.

Second, they are preaching an alternative interpretation of Islam, promoting peace, love, tolerance and democracy.

They live in Turkey, for crying out loud, don’t you think they know that most Muslim leaders and followers the world over disagree with them? But they have the courage, even the chutzpah, to tell the world—and they publish unabashedly on Muslim and Arab websites as well—what Islam should be.

Unlike some American sitting in his Mom’s basement, typing away how naïve Sinem is, she is actually putting her money—and her life—where her keyboard is. And she’s doing it patiently, humbly, never an angry word, never a snappy retort. I couldn’t do it, honestly.

So we discovered these lovely Muslim peaceniks, who are lovey-dovey about Jews and Israel, and who completely ignore the grim realities of a billion Muslims out there who hate us. Fine. It still means these strange Muslim don’t want me dead, right? That definitely goes on the plus side in my ledger.

Third, they support Israel’s right to exist as an independent Jewish State, based on the Koran, they pray for the coming of the King Mashiach ben David, they support the right of Jews to pray on the Temple Mount, they oppose Holocaust denial, they support the rebuilding of the Third Temple on the same Temple Mount. Is it any wonder they are being accused by radical Islamists that they are Zionist agents?

A recent Al Qaida attack in Istanbul, I’m told, was in retaliation for Oktar’s hosting of Rabbi Lau.

So, Muslim peaceniks, don’t want to kill me, and they’re saying my country belongs to me. Beats my European friends who say I must give away another two thirds of my country so that my neighbors might agree I have the right to exist.

Fourth, it is in our own interest to embrace friends of the Jews and of Israel. Plenty of Jews happily embrace messianic evangelicals who write openly that all they want is for us to convert to Christianity, and they even know that we’re all going there, like it or not, when That Man supposedly returns. We trumpet any pope who says we no longer have to pay for crucifying what’s his name. We’re a tiny nation, we can’t afford to scoff at anyone who wants to be our friend and lives up to it.

So, please, people, get with it. We’re in a war for our lives in which every friend counts. Enough with the crazy talkbacks.

  1. WOW! Fry mah hide! Th’ fust brit milah ah see wif wo’ds of fire. Ouch!

  2. The main point here is still being missed. Sinem Tezyapar has consistently taken to lying about well known Islamic precepts such as for example, jihad, which has no fundamental basis in reality as well as in Islamic jurisprudence. Making stuff up as you go along does nothing to buttress her ''credibility'', instead, it makes her a complete ignoramus, assuming she's basing her opinion on ignorance instead of other nefarious intents.

    Also, her mentor Adnan Oktar, is a conspiracy nut who believes and delivers Muslim Brotherhood rhetoric about the Free Masons, as well as adhering to classic fundamentalist (basic Islam 101) understandings about Christianity's central figure, deeming him as a Muslim, who will return to destroy Christianity.

    This is only to show that his basic understandings of Islam is fundamentalist in origin, that people of other faiths (Jews and Christians) really don't have their own religion, they are part and parcel, of Islamic origins. It shows that he is no moderate, and anything he says should be judged under that rubric. Plus his links to the Trukish ruling party, the fundamentalist AKP, who ARE INDEED Jew haters, only serves to highlight his extremism.

    Looking for Muslim ''moderates'' is a bumpy ride, as they case of Oktar and Tezyapar shows us.

  3. Yori Yanover says:

    Kenneth Sikorski · Not easily confused by the facts, are you. Let's do the math, then: How many Jews were killed by Muslims over the years? Since there were no major pogroms even near the European magnitude in Muslim countries, I suspect the overall figure is less than 100 thousand, probably a lot less.

    How many of my Jewish brothers and sisters have been murdered by Christians over the past 2000 years? Many, many millions.

    Under what religious majority was the most thriving Jewish center in history, bar none? Yes, indeed, 500 golden years under the rule of Islam.

    And who interrupted those wonderful years of Jewish thriving in all areas of life? Yes, the Christians, who then proceeded to exile my Jewish brothers and sisters.

    Looking for Muslim moderates may be a bumpy ride, but at least the record suggests they have been there and could be there once more.

    But European Christians? Who would be mad enough to seek their alliance or friendship?

    What is it you're saying, the Christians have evolved and some of them no longer harbor hatred towards the Jews? How wonderful.

    But Muslims are genetically incapable of having friendly ties with Jews ever again? Is that it?

  4. Donny Kligman says:

    Nonsense Charlie it was not "nullified" and Muslims all over the world on Islamic State run TV broadcast to hundreds of millions of Muslims around the world quote the hadith to kill Jews. And while in the Torah the Hebrews were told to kill the Canaanites there is no current standing order to kill anyone. "Thou shall not Kill" is not something Muslims believe in. What you're saying is absolute ignorant nonsense.

  5. Donny Kligman says:

    Islam is the only religion that calls for the murder, genocide, and domination of other religions. There is no law in the bible that dictates to kill Muslims, non-believers, or a goal of world domination.
    Sahih Bukhari Hadith Volume 4, Book 52, Number 176: Narrated by 'Abdullah bin 'Umar: Allah's Apostle said, "You (i.e. Muslims) will fight with the Jews till some of them will hide behind stones. The stones will (betray them) saying, 'O 'Abdullah (i.e. slave of Allah)! There is a Jew hiding behind me; so kill him.'" Sahih Bukhari Hadith Volume 4, Book 52, Number 177: Narrated by Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."

  6. Donny Kligman says:

    Bukhari (89:271) – A man who embraces Islam, then reverts to Judaism is to be killed according to "the verdict of Allah and his apostle."

  7. Robbie Goldstein says:

    Yori, you have NOT lived under these people. My family has. And they died under them, too. I am a Jew of Egyptian and Turkish heritage. If you want to risk your own life, knock your socks off. But now, you are deceiving other Jews, and that is where you need to stop.

    You can begin by stop revising history. You are either incredibly ignorant of history, or lying. Which is it?

    * There absolutely were major pograms against the Jews by Muslims. You conveniently forget about the 900,000 + Sefardim run out of their homes, businesses, with just the clothes on their backs in 1948.

    *You seem to forget the ethnic cleansing by the Muslims when Jordan attacked Israel and butchered Jews and occupied a portion of Jerusalem and Judea and Sumaria for 19 years. The Arab Riots of 1920, 1929, 1932 and 1936- 39…. They can't blame "Settlements" for that, now can they?

    * What about the butchering of the 3 largest Jewish tribes in Medina, by Mohammad and his warriors? You can read all about that one in the Koran- It is glorified. Did you even know that there were more Jews in Arabia, than Arabs at one time?

    *Persecution of Jews is once again going on- with the Jews of Iran, the Jews of Turkey, Yemen, what few left in Egypt, and now, Tunisia.

    Did you know where that infamous yellow star came from? Not the Nazis. It was from the Muslims. It was a part of a long, historical list of humiliations and pograms against the Jews, throughout M.E. history. Get a Jewish history book and READ IT.

    You need to research and learn about your own people's history before you cause more harm.You can begin by reading the Koran. The Koran teaches that Jews must die. Paradise can't happen until there is not a single Jew left. That is fact. That is their law. Read the Haddiths. It is all very clear. There is no mistaking their intent.

    If they are a Muslim, then this is what they believe. And, they are to accomplish the extermination of Jews by any method they can, including lulling the infidel into lowering their guard. It is called "taquiyya", and you have 2 trojan horses doing exactly that to you.

    The Christians did indeed kiil millions upon millions of us. But the Muslims came in very close, and were just as barbaric.

    Idiots like you should go live under Muslim rule. It will open your eyes. And if you survive, you will learn. In the meantime, us "Arab Jews" are still trying to get remaining families out of these nations- because they are living in fear, getting butchered, and being persecuted …..AGAIN.

  8. Lisa Michelle says:

    Well said, Robbie. I was about to respond myself, but you covered most bases. I'm just concerned that by default, Yori's omission of pertinent facts, whether deliberate or stunningly naive, would leave his readers in the dark.

  9. Robbie Goldstein says:

    He has no idea of what he is talking about. It is too obvious… He needs to study the Jewish history of the Middle East.

  10. Yori, your 500 yrs golden period of Islam is a myth. All I need is to turn to the words of Mosheh ben Maimon (Rambam) who called Mohamed ''The Madman'' and of Islam in general: http://www.andrewbostom.org/blog/2007/12/26/maimonides-and-the-%E2%80%9Cmeshugga%E2%80%9D-prophet/.

  12. The way you and some of your readers are responding, one could think that we're dealing with a small sandlot cult community of worshippers whose most pressing concern of the day is what sized worry beads to fumble around in their sweaty palms. We are dealing with an ideology whose adherents are AT WAR WITH US. We have to know exactly what they are thinking, what texts they draw inspiration from and justification. There is no way in the world intellegence communities would be better served with Sinem Tezyapar's utter garbage that jihad means peace and love. This is pure nonsense, and dangerous nonsense as well.

  13. exactly right Kenneth Sikorski!!

  14. Jack Huffman says:

    Mr.Yori at first G_D bless you I respect you so much…

    i totally agree with you cuz we need peace.

  15. Jack Huffman says:

    Yori Yanover Mr.Yori at first G_D bless you I respect you so much…

    i totally agree with you cuz we need peace.

  16. Robbie Goldstein says:

    Liad, then he should not be in the publishing field. This then becomes a matter of a lack of professional ethics and scruples.

  17. Ceren Ataman says:

    Thanks to Yori Yanover for this excellent writing. I read it with pleasure. Love and understanding is the solution for the troubles still going on the world. We should really get rid of any bias that puts us in different sides.

  18. You really swallowed the bait, didn't you?

    "they are preaching an alternative interpretation of Islam, promoting peace, love, tolerance and democracy."

    Absurd. Who are they to "interpret" Islam? Islam is perfect; it cannot be interpreted by individual believers. What allah has already decided cannot be questioned, every muslim child knows that. It has to be taken straight up, undiluted, unquestioned.

    "Peace" in Islam comes when the Infidels are conquered and subjected to Islamic law, which means they pay the jiziya with willing submission while feeling subdued, or killed. There is no "love" in the Koran, (except for fellow muslims), "tolerance" means the opposite, and democracy is un-Islamic.

    That deluded liberal Jews fall for this trash is annoying. Have you taken a look at Adnan Oktar's website and his harem of hookers?

    You should.

  19. Yori Yanover

    You need a history lesson and a reality check.

    Jews have been wiped out in all Islamic countries.

    Your "golden age of al Andalus"is rubbish. Its a myth. Reality is that Jews thrived in Christian countries, (yes, there were pogroms and millions were killed by the Nazis) but there is no ideology in Europe or elsewhere cloaked as a religion that calls for genocide of all Jews, only Islam does that.

  20. This is a correction request that I asked from MEMRI TV.
    Dear sir,
    I am contacting you on behalf of Mr. Adnan Oktar. His words about Zionism in the below link is not subtitled correctly. I assume that Al Jazeera might have edited and translated in a way that is coherent to its own ideology. But if you will listen to the Turkish original uncut film which was recorded and broadcasted on Harun Yahya websites, he is not against zionism. That is why he says IF there is such and such…. so he is referring to an imaginary zionism… However the film presents him as someone against zionism.
    http://www.memritv.org/clip/en/1643.htm
    The Turkish transcript is like this:
    ADNAN OKTAR: Siyonizm de aynı şekilde. Eğer dünyaya hakim olmayı düşünen, diğer dinleri reddeden, tek bir dinin hakimiyetini iddia eden, diğer insanları kabul etmeyen bir ideoloji varsa ortada, tabiki ben buna karşı mücadele ederim.Ama böyle bir iddiası yoksa bir insanın, ona birşey demem. Ehl-i Kitaptır museviler. Yani kendi dinini yaşamak istiyorsa, kendi ülkesinde oturmak istiyorsa istediği gibi oturur istediği gibi yaşar. Ona saygı duyarım, ama “Bu bana yetmiyor, ben bütün dünyaya hakim olacağım ve bütün dinleri ortadan kaldıracağım, sadece ben kalacağım diyorsa” bunu kabul etmem tabii.
    The English translation is like this:
    ADNAN OKTAR: Zionism is the same, of course. If there is an ideology that aims to rule the world, that rejects other religions, that claims the dominion of a single religion and rejects other people and tries to impose its ideology on them, I will of course fight it. But if somebody does not espouse such ideas, then there is nothing I can say. The Jews are a People of the Book. If they want to practice their own religion, if they want to live in their own country, they should stay and live freely in their own country. I respect that, but, if they say “This is not enough for me. I am going to rule the whole world and will destroy all other religions, so that only I survive”, that I cannot accept.
    We will kindly ask for your editing or removal of the film that is misleading. And I can send many many links where Mr. Adnan Oktar advocates the rights of Jews to dwell in the Holy Land, to have their own sovereign state.
    Best regards

    Give 'em hell, Sinem. Lying bastards.

  23. Sinem, You point out that what Adnan actually said speaking Turkish, was something possible, hypothetical, and not as the English indicates Adnan actually saying it is so. You translate the Turkish showing the tentative thought in Adnan's mind rather than assertion that it is so. I want to point out that the English translation on the screen is accurate to the Arabic translation of the narrator,. The Narrator says "yanbaghi…uqawima" "It is necessary for me to oppose it", or "I am obligated to fight it" as the main clause and not as the conditioned phrase. So the fault is really intentional as I see it. Adnan raises a situation, probably knowing the context in which he speaks, and really does leave it open to an if- possibly because there are other and important things to say, and he doesn't want to stop the discussions in argument. But the Arabic clearly removes the "if" to it all, and makes Adnan come down on the side against Zionism. Then the English on the screen, accurately translates, not Adnan, but the Arabic of the narrator. – I think!

  27. Samia Khan says:

    Actually the holy books are correctly read when a scholar knows history of different lands, meaning he should know the truth about world history. If one starts interpreting holy book with own personal knowledge , its wrong. they say..The blind leading blind..we should learn our history well and then we can visualise the holy books. As a Muslim I can only say that we behave exactly like Jews when coming to politics, but when we come to religion we should organise ourselves well and not start killing, slandering, butchering people. The salafi school of thought disregards such gentle precautions and make us rough with others. We should all work for peace and not war.

  30. Alexis Worlock says:

    If what Oktar and Sinem want is for Muslims to put down their animus and their arms toward the Jews, and live together as friends…it would seem that the people they should be talking to about their kinder gentler understanding of Islam is their fellow Muslims–not selling themselves to the Jews as if they represent a movement (which does not in fact appear to go beyond Oktar and his sirens). Let them advocate for Israel with the Turkish government. Let them organize demonstrations and teach-ins and protests. Let them inveigh against the slanders and the violence against the Jewish people, that are routine among their co-religionists.

    It is imams they should be talking to, not rabbis.

  31. Yaşar Polat says:

    selamlar ceren hnm

  32. Jahudi majnoon, "crazy jew", glad to meet you!

  33. Dear Ms. Sinem, Is it possible for you to post the original, unedited interview given to Al Jazeera, IN TURKISH? It would help to compare and see how it was distorted.
    Secondly, shouldn't your demand for correction be addressed to Al Jazeera (rather than MEMRI) because they are the ones who distorted it?
    Looking forward for the link to original clip so we can hear what was really said.
    Thank you

  34. Larisa Silbert says:

    If Rabbi Lau takes Oktar at face value and believes that he is trying to build bridges between our people, isn't that good enough?
    Oktar and Sinem etc are doing a lot of good work, and it's unreasonable to presume bad intentions behind good words.

  35. Larisa Silbert says:

    Also, quoting the Quran as if they indicate that Muslims must all automatically believe and take literally every single passage is a bit ridiculous.
    That's basically presuming that 1.6 billion people are extremists. A lot of Jews (the majority, I'd venture) don't take every single part of the Torah literally and many of our great scholars have taken the view that certain things may be allegory for a very long time (Maimonides, etc.)

    If anyone here can honestly say that they haven't met a good-hearted, kind, peace-loving Muslim in their entire life, then I would like to humbly suggest that they really need to get out more.

  36. is now made public that beginning with a raid in July of 2012 and ending in February of 2013, an Al Qaida ring had been smashed in Turkey's two main cities Istanbul and Ankara, and also in the smaller Corlu district, with weapon storage and explosives.
    Turkish police and counter terrorist units had arrested 12 people, including eight Turks, two Azeris and two Chechens, and had seized 700 kilos (1,500 pounds) of explosives, along with assault rifles, ammunition, bomb-making instructions and detailed maps of Ankara and the floor plans of the attack targets. Computers had been found. Forensic analysis of the computers’ contents and other documents revealed preparations for bomb attacks on the American embassy, the private Rahmi M. Koc Museum, and a synagogue in the Balat district of Istanbul. Found also was an assassination plan (along with the floor plan of his home) with the name its intended target – Adnan Oktar.

    "Within the scope of investigation (No. 2012/229) carried by Istanbul Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office, Anti-Terror Branch Office performed an operation against the Al-Aida Organisation in Tekirdağ and Istanbul on the date 27.02.2013. As a result of the examination made on the digital data obtained from the homes of the targeted people, it is determined that the addresses of the houses and offices of Adnan Oktar were scouted." (Offical police document given on basis of Oktar's designation as an intended target).

    "Al-Qaeda members were captured with 22 kilos A-4 explosives.all the headlines were "they were going to cover everywhere with blood" Hurriyat News (Turkish).

    "Emniyet Genel Müdürlüğü Terör Daire Başkanlığı’ndaki bilişim uzmanları, dizüstü bilgisayarların şifrelerini kırarak içindeki dosyalara ulaştı. Uzmanlar tarafından deşifre edilen bilgisayar dosyalarında, televizyon programcısı Acun Ilıcalı ile kamuoyunda Adnan Hoca olarak bilinan Adnan Oktar’a ait ev ve işyerlerinin fotoğrafları, istihbarat notları çıktı. Ayrıca örgüt üyelerinin bombalı eylemler için hazırlık yaptıkları Koç Müzesi, Amerikan Büyükelçiliği ve Balat’taki bir Sinagog’a ait krokiler de bulundu" (Hurriyat News).

    “[Allaah said to Iblees:] And befool them gradually those whom you can among them with your voice (i.e. songs, music, and any other call for Allaah’s disobedience)…” [al-Israa’ 17:64]

    The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

    “Among my ummah there will certainly be people who permit zinaa, silk, alcohol and musical instruments…” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari ta’leeqan, no. 5590; narrated as mawsool by al-Tabaraani and al-Bayhaqi. See al-Silsilah al-Saheehah by al-Albaani, 91).

    With regard to dancing, it is not permissible in front of men, non-mahrams, mahrams or women, because of the fitnah that may be caused by the movements of the body. It is well known that women may feel desire for one another, and even if that is not the case, there is no guarantee that one of them will not go back to her menfolk and describe to them what she has seen of the beauty of the dancer and her movement, so this may affect the men and may cause a great deal of mischief. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade such things.

    It was narrated that ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “No woman should look at another woman then describe her to her husband so that it is as if he can see her.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 4839.

    In the early days the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) allowed effeminate men to enter upon woman, but when he saw one of them describing women and disclosing their secrets, he forbade them from doing that.

    It was narrated from Umm Salamah (may Allaah be pleased with her): The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) entered upon me and there was an effeminate man with me. I heard him say to ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Abi Umayyah, “O ‘Abd-Allaah, if Allaah should enable you to conquer al-Taa’if tomorrow you should look for the daughter of Ghaylaan…” then he described her. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “These people should not enter upon you.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 3980; Muslim, 4048.

Rabbi Meir Kahane at the National Press Club ~ 1985

Rabbi Kahane spoke of transfer, because it was what the Torah spoke of.

Hamas terrorists in Gaza have been using human shields to protect them from the IDF as they launch rocket attacks against Israel.

There is much I can write you about what is going here, but I am wondering what I should not write. I will start by imagining that I am you, sitting at home in the Los Angeles area and flipping back and forth between the weather, traffic reports, the Ukraine, Mexican illegals and Gaza. No […]

Jews inside Paris synagogue surrounded by protesters throwing rocks, holding bats and chairs.

Should Jews in Europe take more responsibility in self-defense of community and property?

Germany’s The Jewish Faith newspaper ominously noted, “We Jews are in for a war after the war.”

The truth is we seldom explore with kids what prayer is supposed to be about.

Almost as one, Jews around the world are acknowledging the day-to-day peril facing ordinary Jews in Israel and the extraordinary service of the IDF in protecting them.

So on the one hand Secretary Kerry makes no bones about who is at fault for the current hostilities: he clearly blames Hamas.

King Solomon said it long ago: “Cast your bread upon the waters” because you don’t know when you’ll hit something. Our job is to do.

The anti-Israel camp does not need to win America fully to its side. Merely to neutralize it would radically alter the balance of power and put Israel in great jeopardy.

We mourn the dead, wish a speedy recovery to the wounded, and pray that God guides the government.

Charges from the court of world public opinion and their refutations.

It is up to our government to ensure that their sacrifices were not made for short-term gains.

Supporting Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East, has become dangerous in Malmo.

A Jerusalem woman is trying to hold on to her umbrella while withdrawing some cash at a Meah Shearim ATM, Sunday, March 9, 2014. The rain appeared out of the blue (which is how rain should), after a warm week that started to feel like summer. Well, it don’t feel like summer no more. Last […]

Pat Condell has a new video out, so, sit back, have fun. By the way, Message to Offended Muslims should not be confused with Message to Off Handed Muslims. Also, I’d love to hear what he has to say about Haredim.

The description that came with this picture says: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks with American actor Bette Midler during an event at the house of Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan in Hollywood on March 6, 2014.

An Israeli female soldier (because they’re better at removing babies from their homes) evacuates a baby from a settlement in Judea and Samaria some time in the recent past. I’m thinking, if the baby was angry enough, couldn’t he evacuate in return, right there in her arms? Imagine the same picture, except with a settler […]
