Israeli Embassy in UK Slams Event Hosted by House of Lords Blaming Jews for Holocaust

Thursday, October 27th, 2016

The Israel Embassy in London has condemned an event hosted by the House of Lords at the Palestine Return Center which also co-hosted the “Balfour Apology Campaign” launched ahead of the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration.

The event, which calls on Britain to apologize for the Balfour Declaration and show remorse for its “past colonial crimes in Palestine,” also blamed Jews for the Holocaust, and compared the Jewish State to the Islamic State, or Da’esh (ISIS).

The Balfour Declaration was the document which in 1917 pledged British support for a Jewish homeland in what was then called Palestine, the Roman name for the land referred to in the Bible as “Eretz Israel,” the Land of Israel.

The session, run by Baroness Tonge, an independent MP who was formerly a Liberal Democrat, was held to launch the Balfour Apology Campaign ahead of the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration.

“This Islamic State in Syria is nothing with Islamic. It is a perversion of Islam just as Zionism is a perversion of Judaism,” said a member of the audience at the event.

A second audience member said, “If anybody is anti-Semitic, it’s the Israelis themselves,” with panel members applauding in response.

Blogger David Collier, who attended the event, said he had “witnessed a Jew-hating festival.”

UNESCO Unmasked – and Letters to the World

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

If you are an Israel friend or foe, your social media feeds were probably taken up with the recent UNESCO decision that the Temple Mount, Jerusalem and the Western Wall have no connectino to Jewish history.

The anti Israel crowd were probably applauding the decision while the pro Israel crew were either laughing it off or seriously ticked off by it. Personally, I certainly belong to the second category, but when I heard the decision, I stood up and started applauding it. Why you ask? So happy you did!

No, I don’t agree with this ludicrous, historically fabricated, Islamic terror apologetic UNESCO decision, but for those of you who were surprised or even in the slightest bit disappointed by UNESCO, it’s time to wake up!

I am not applauding UNESCOs decision because I agree with its content, I am applauding it because this UN organization has finally unmasked its real intent.

Can you see it?

This conflict was never about settlements or occupation of a country that never existed and it was never about an Arab national dream to build a country called Palestine, this conflict has always been about an Arab national dream to destroy one called Israel.

The recent UNESCO decision proved beyond a doubt that this is not about an effort by the world to bring about peace, but rather an attempt by the world to take apart Israel piece by piece.

It’s one thing to create a national Arab identity based on a fabrication of history, it’s another to try to delete real Jewish history in the land of Israel, in Jerusalem and on the Temple Mount. Let’s forget about the fact that the Torah, New Testament and the Quran clearly calls the Land of Israel a Jewish homeland and let’s ignore the fact that the Islamic Al Aqsa mosque was originally called BAYIT AL MUQDAS (Translated literally as; Built on the Temple!)

Let’s make believe there is no actual depiction of the Roman empire ransacking Jerusalem and stealing the vessels from JEWISH Temple that existed in Jerusalem long before a religion called Islam was born!

Let’s ignore the fact that Muslims face Mecca in prayer and stick their backsides towards Jerusalem, while the Jews always and only face Jerusalem.

Let’s ignore the fact that Jerusalem is mentioned in the Jewish Bible 669 times and the word Zion is mentioned 154 times and the fact that Jerusalem is not mentioned in the Quran even once!

Let’s ignore all those pesky facts and still make believe the UNESCO decision has something to do with countries fighting for human and civil rights.

Here is a list of the countries that voted for the UNESCO decision to delete any Jewish connection to Jerusalem, the Temple Mount or the Western Wall.

I gave you the countries that are officially Muslim or have a majority population of Muslims, can you point out which one of these countries have a full democratic government?

The only thing that happened in the recent UNESCO vote is the masks came off. The only people who were surprised about this vote are those who built themselves a fantasy world where the enemies of Israel are actually interested in peace.

The only people upset about this vote are leftists who convinced themselves of some kind of Alice in Wonderland reality where the radical Islamic queen will not cut off their heads if they just give them some land.

The only question that remains is; do the liberal leftists in the world have enough sanity left to actually deal with reality or will they cling on to the fantasy world they built for themselves?

Dear America, England, Germany, Estonia, Lithuania and The Netherlands,

Thank you for having the courage to stand up and vote NO to this total fabrication of history and poor excuse for Islamic terrorism. Can you do me a favor?

Can you please stop making believe settlements are the issue and can you please stop accepting the false narrative the Arabs created with which they justify attacking Israel and murdering Jews.


Dear America,

Now that you admit Jerusalem has strong historical, religious and national connections to the Jewish people,

would you be so kind to move your embassy to Jerusalem and stop deleting Israel when it comes to Jerusalem!


Dear Bibi,

You are a great statesman and thank God you are Prime Minister and not the left wing representatives. You seemed to be very upset with the recent UNESCO decision and sent out several humorous yet angry tweets over the decision.

LOL! Very funny!

Now, would you please cancel your order that does not allow Jewish members of Knesset to go up to the Temple Mount. While we are on the subject, can you please give an order that Jews are no longer to be arrested for praying on the Temple Mount.

Dear Israel,

If we make deals with terrorists and behave as if we owe something to those who have attacked us time and time again, you cannot blame the world for such stupidity, let’s stop making believe we are the bad guys, shall we!



Boulder Prep School Students Expelled for Calls to Execute Jews [video]

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

Five Boulder Prep High School students in Colorado were expelled over their Facebook hate group, where they were calling for the executions of Jews and Blacks, The Daily Camera reported last week. Local media report that Boulder police discovered the Neo-Nazi cell after one of the member had committed suicide “to show allegiance to the Nazi party.” Police is investigating reports of threats and harassment of a student at the high school by the group members.

The chat group was reported by a parent of one of the students. The group’s “second-in-command” told police, “the whole thing was ‘funny,'” assuring them he had no intention to actually do any of those things.

“It was a shock to the community,” Scott Levin of the regional Anti-Defamation League told CS in response to the revelations. “It isn’t as if there is any identifiable group [in Boulder] that is advocating this. There’s a lot of hateful rhetoric going on in this country right now, and that has just empowered some teenagers.”

An estimated 15 students participated in the “4th Reich’s Official Group Chat” on Facebook, according to a Boulder police report, which said members discussed “killing all Jews and N***s,” posted images of guns, and discussed “the final solution” and “white power,” and ways to “recruit more members” to complete their mission. The chat group’s “4th Reich” title is a reference to a successor to Adolph Hitler’s Third Reich. In fact, the chat group’s leader identified himself as “The Fuhrer,” and members adopted Nazi military titles.

One entry went: “You can hang Jews on trees, shoot them right in the knees. Gas as many as you please,” according to the police report.

Lili Adeli, headmaster at Boulder Prep, told Daily Camera the school had addressed the suicide and the Facebook chat’s horrifying language. “We did a lot of work with the students to help ensure their safety and mental health and healing,” she said. “It can bring up their own thoughts of suicide and previous trauma.” This includes checking on students via the phone, including text messages outside of school hours. “We’ve continued to keep the lines of communication open,” she said.

Adeli also stressed that school staff have made it their top priority to educate students on inclusiveness and the importance of speaking out against “derogatory language.”


PM Netanyahu : UNESCO Resolution is ‘Theater of the Absurd’

Thursday, October 13th, 2016

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu slammed the UNESCO resolution passed Thursday rejecting Jewish ties to the Temple Mount and Western Wall in Jerusalem.

Speaking at a Bible study gathering at his home, the prime minister urged the members of UNESCO to go visit the Arch of Titus, and “see for themselves” which treasures were plundered during the destruction of the Second Holy Temple in Jerusalem 2,000 years ago.

“The UNESCO theater show continues,” Netanyahu said. “Today it took a ridiculous decision denying the connection between the Jewish people and the Western Wall. It’s like saying that the Chinese have no connection to the Great Wall of China and the Egyptians have no connection to the pyramids,” he said. “What’s next?”

The Western Wall was referred to as Al Buraq Plaza in the resolution, with its Hebrew name, the Kotel, in quotation marks only. UNESCO didn’t even bother to do that with the Temple Mount, referring to it only in Arabic as ‘Haram a-Sharif’ and Al Aqsa Mosque.’ The move clearly promotes the site solely as one sacred to Muslims alone, denying any sanctity or connection to Jews or Christians.

A line acknowledging recognition of Jerusalem “and its walls” as holy to the three monotheistic faiths, beginning with Islam, then Christianity, and finally Judaism, reveals the cunning of the Palestinian Authority attempt to “balance” its resolution so as to avoid the appearance of outright anti-Semitism, but fails to do the job.

The UNESCO vote was passed with a vote of 24 to 6, with 26 abstentions and 2 absences. Voting against the resolution were: the United States, Germany, the Netherlands, Britain, Estonia and Lithuania.

“This resolution flies in the face of, among other things, science as recent archeological excavations, notably in the City of David, have revealed incontrovertible, physical evidence that reaffirms Jewish and Christian ties to the holy city of Jerusalem,” wrote Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Florida) in a letter they wrote together, calling on the U.S. government to do what it could to block passage of the resolution.

U.S. Representative Ted Deutch of South Florida, meanwhile, tweeted the UNESCO vote dangerously seeks to rewrite Jerusalem’s Jewish and Christian history.

An official at the White House told the Jerusalem Post said a response to the letter was in the works.

“The recurring highly politicized use of the UNESCO Executive Board meetings only further underscores the urgent need for the United States to restore its leadership at UNESCO, which has been considerably undercut since the United States ceased funding UNESCO in 2011,” said the official.

Black Crosses Spray-Painted on Synagogue In Dark of Night on Yom Kippur

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

Anti-Semitism reared its ugly head at night in the heart of the holiest city in the world, on the most sacred day of the Jewish year.

Black crosses were spray-painted on the wall of the synagogue of Congregation Shlomo in the Katamon neighborhood of Jerusalem during the night of Yom Kippur, sometime after the end of evening prayers, the Hebrew-language 0404 website reported.

This is not the first time crosses have been slathered on the synagogue walls by hate-filled vandals who work hard to hurt Jewish worshipers, according to residents who spoke with 0404. A similar attack took place two weeks ago, according to the report.

“We are sick of these attacks on Jewish life and on our feelings,” shocked worshipers said in response to the attack. “We are living in the capital city of Israel and look at this.

“If this were to take place at a mosque and it was a Jewish Star of David that was painted on the wall of the mosque, the police would be out in force, the president would be apologizing and the media would be screaming with headlines.

“It’s a disgrace that no one has even reported it.”

EU Statement on Terrorism More Like ‘Politics As Usual’

Tuesday, October 11th, 2016

The European Union reluctantly, belatedly joined the rest of its international colleagues and released a terse, openly political statement late in the evening, condemning Sunday’s terror attack in Jerusalem. A grandmother and a newly-married police officer both were murdered, and six other people were wounded in the attack.

“The death of two Israelis and injury of several others in a terrorist shooting incident in Jerusalem today illustrate once more the urgent need to bring new impetus to the peace process, as proposed in the recent report from the Quartet,” the EU statement read.

“The EU condemns all such acts of violence, as well as any praise or incitement for terrorist acts, and extends its sincere condolences to the families of the bereaved. “

Jewish Group: European Report on Iran Lacks ‘Moral Clarity’

Thursday, October 6th, 2016

by Andrew Friedman The European Parliament praised a draft report Thursday surveying the group’s relationship with Iran, but Jewish groups said the report does little to address Tehran’s support for terrorism, its anti-Israel rhetoric and open anti-Semitism, or its systematic violation of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Spokespeople for the European Parliament Foreign Affairs Committee said the text of the report, entitled ‘EU Strategy Towards Iran After the Nuclear Agreement‘ will not been made public until next week. But EP Rapporteur Richard Howitt called the document a “very honest assessment of differences as well as of common interests” between Tehran and Brussels.

In a statement, Howitt addressed human rights in the Islamic Republic, particularly the death penalty, and expressed hopes that the report’s “constructive language” would serve as a platform to overcome a history of misunderstandings and form the basis for better relations between the parties.

He also told Tazpit Press Service (TPS) that the new report would send a strong political signal to both Iran and to EU member states looking for trade opportunities, as well as to human rights activists looking for support.

At least 15 European countries have sent trade delegations to Tehran since the nuclear deal was signed last year.

Jewish groups and pro-Israel MEPs were less enthusiastic. The AJC Transatlantic Institute, the European office of the American Jewish Committee, slammed the report as little more than a capitulation to Iran’s support for international terrorism, calls for the destruction of Israel and human rights abuses.

“The report in its current form is a serious blow to the standing of the European Parliament as a defender of human rights, justice and freedom,” said Daniel Schwammenthal, director of the Transatlantic Institute.

“As the world watches helplessly the medieval siege and merciless bombardment of Aleppo, it is distressing that the European Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee didn’t find the moral clarity to admonish Assad’s Iranian enablers.

“By giving Tehran basically a free pass on its crimes at home and abroad, the report undermines Parliament’s credibility as a serious foreign policy voice and abandons the people of Iran and the regime’s other countless victims in the region,” Schwammenthal said.

Howitt rejected Schwammenthal’s claims regarding Israel out of hand. Speaking to TPS by phone, Howitt stressed that the report names Israel “as a country and people whose peace and security should be respected,” and that Iran should ensure that Hezbollah does not receive funding.

“When I was in Tehran I met with Jewish community, and I encouraged Iranian officials to use its Jewish community to reach out to other countries in the region – that’s clearly aimed at Israel,” Howitt said.

Howitt’s defense notwithstanding, Dutch member of the European Parliament Bas Belder added that the report “totally lacks any insight into the nature of the Islamic Republic of Iran,” and reflects poorly on Rapporteur Howitt.

“The rapporteur opposed my amendment that calls on Iran to cease its support of non-state entities and terrorist organizations in the Middle East, such as Hezbollah and Hamas, [as well as my call for Iran] to establish friendly relations with all states in the region, including Israel, and to cease threatening states with military actions against them,” Belder told Tazpit Press Service (TPS).

“It says a lot about the servile mindset of the rapporteur towards the Iranian regime that he was against my amendment condemning Iran’s repeated threats of destroying the State of Israel and its denial of the Holocaust, the phrase “Death to Israel” on Iranian ballistic missiles during the missile tests and Tehran’s recent International Holocaust Cartoon Contest.

“I feel deeply ashamed about this report in a political, moral and intellectual sense,” Belder added.
