In Israel, a new five month scholarship program being offered to young aspiring athletes – one of them could be you.
We are progressive, caring, socially advanced, egalitarian and freedom-loving
progressives. We really care about people. We think peace is wonderful and war is evil. We are
marching to prevent the American imperialists from mistreating Iraqis. We oppose American
hegemony. We think George W. Bush is a mad cowboy. We love Palestinians and want them to
Here we present our Grand Marching Song, set to John Philip Sousa. All together now:
We believe in enlightened government and progress.
And that is why we support Arab fascism.
We believe in peace.
And that is why we support all military aggression against Israel.
We believe in freedom.
And that is why we support Hussein and Assad, as well as Arafat.
We believe in self-determination and self-definition for all.
But not for Jews.
We oppose violence.
And that is why we support Palestinian terror.
We believe in human dignity.
And that is why we applaud when Arabs blow up Jewish women and children.
We believe in fraternity and the brotherhood of nations.
Which is why we don?t protest when our Arab friends attempt genocide against Jews.
We believe in voting.
Which is why we applaud Libya, Sudan, Iran, and Iraq and condemn Israel.
We believe in freedom of movement and migration.
Except for Jews.
We favor equality.
As in Syria, Iraq and Libya.
We favor minority rights.
Except for Jews, Kurds, southern Sudanese, Copts and other politically incorrect groups.
We believe in freedom.
But do not mind that slavery still exists in Sudan, Saudi Arabia and other Arab states.
We believe in a free press.
And so we support censorship by the PLO.
We believe in freedom to practice religion.
But only for Moslems.
We believe in affirmative action for those who suffered from past discrimination.
But not for Jews.
We believe in egalitarianism.
And so we support ethnic cleansing of Jews in the Middle East.
We love children and living things.
And this is why we applaud suicide bombers.
We hate it when people blame the victims.
Which is why all terrorism is the Jews' fault.
We believe in education.
As long as we never have to read any books.
We believe in multiculturalism.
As long as no one ever has to learn respect for Jews, Christians or the West.
We believe in progress.
As long as Arab countries never are asked to progress beyond the 12th century.
We believe in prosperity.
And that is why we support Arab feudalism and kleptocracy.
We believe in freedom of expression.
Which is why people who do not agree with us must be censored.
We believe the human rights of Arabs must be protected.
But not in Arab countries.
We are upset by illiteracy.
And that is why we practice it.
We oppose torture.
Except when it is practiced by the Palestinian Authority or other progressive Arabs.◙

Ahmadinejad may plan to reveal proof that the 2009 elections were rigged if his candidate’s registration for presidential candidacy is not accepted.
With a ‘friend’ like Erdogan, Obama’s policy toward Syria, Iran, the advance of revolutionary Islamism, and the Israel-Palestinian “peace process,” is in serious trouble.
The media loved Obama, but it discovered early on that he did not love it back.
How far the PA will go to present the lie as the truth and the truth as a lie? Its claim that Jesus was a Palestinian is old hat. But now the “resurrection” also refers to “the Palestinian state.”
The progressive consolidation imagines that organization can contain the messier side of man.
The Russian Yakhont missiles already delivered to Syria threaten Israel Navy ships carrying out vital missions in the Mediterranean.
Islamism represents the transformation of Islamic faith into a political ideology.
America could be said to be building a united front against Iran, but at what price?
The Japanese do not feel the need to apologize to Muslims for the negative way in which they relate to Islam.
Palestinian youths from Hebron, though, who met with Israelis near Bethlehem to share their problems and insights have been forced to issue a statement distancing themselves from the meeting.
Benghazi isn’t likely to keep Hillary out of the Democratic field in 2016, but after 2008, she is justifiably paranoid.
The contractors received the land at a bargain basement price, moved the prices up to 1.8 million NIS and pocketed one million NIS per apartment.
Many of my fellow college students are quick to voice their acceptance of their LGBT friends, but they turn up their noses and frown slightly when they speak of a Hasid.
The growing revelations that the Obama State Department watered down public statements on the attack in order to cleanse them of any mention of al Qaeda and terrorism is a travesty.
We must confront Islamist groups with what Prime Minister David Cameron referred to as “muscular liberalism.”

Dear Mr. President,
My heartfelt sympathies to you and the American people for the acts of protest carried out in Boston this week during the Boston Marathon. This really is a wake-up call for us all.
Honest Abe used exactly the same blockade tactic against the Confederacy over which the Israeli Left is now sobbing its eyes out.
Quick. Name all the Israeli parties that did not run in the recent election on a platform focusing on lowering the price of housing and the cost of living. After that, name all the Israeli parties who understand what has produced the rapid increase in housing prices and have a plan for coping with them and lowering them.
There is a widespread misconception that the Middle East conflict is complicated. In fact, it is really rather simple.
Indeed, one can basically summarize and explain the entire conflict in the context of the words “occupation” or “occupied territories” and people’s beliefs about the effects of such “occupation.”
In 1999, Benjamin Netanyahu, in his first go-round as prime minister, lost his reelection bid to Ehud Barak, much to the delight of Israel’s conscripted media and of many in its judicial system.
There is a species of radical leftist that believes the main purpose of taxpayer-funded universities is to indoctrinate students in radical left-wing ideology. Such people believe the only legitimate form of scholarly research and teaching is to force upon students the ideas and agendas of the left because only these represent correct thinking.
It is now official. Rachel Corrie, patron saint of the pro-terror radical left and its Islamofascist allies, essentially committed suicide in order to assist Palestinian terrorists. She was not killed in cavalier fashion by Israel. Israel had no particular reason to want her dead (as opposed to deported).
