J Street Boasting of Defeating Israel’s Friends, But its Relevance Is Questionable

Given President Obama's win and victories of many of their candidates, a reasonable morning-after position for J Street would be quiet satisfaction, or even – why not? – gleeful rejoicing. But J Street, which has rarely met a critic of Israel it didn't like, instead tried to promote itself as an integral part of the campaign, a driving wind propelling Democratic victories. So eager to claim a starring role, J Street released details of several exit polls they commissioned which, upon examination, tell far more about how little J Street matters.

Amnesty International Press Release Condemns Sharp Rise in Middle East Executions, Ignores Hamas Death...

The organization says that in 2011, 676 people were executed with full public disclosure worldwide. The rise in Iran and Saudi Arabia alone accounted for the net increase of 149 recorded executions as compared to 2010.

Sheldon Cooper’s Girlfriend Speaks at National Museum of American Jewish History about her Bat...

The lovely Mayim Bialik, heartthrob of millions of geeks as Amy Farrah Fowler on The Big Bang Theory, spoke at the National Museum of American Jewish History to mark the 90th anniversary of the Bat Mitzvah. I absolutely love Mayim, who confessed to nursing her own little boy, Fred, through age 3 ("I believe in child-led weaning"). I just think she may not be the best advocate for rituals of adulthood…

High Court Rejects Migron Deal; Outpost Must Be Evacuated; Deputy Speaker Danon: ‘We Will...

The High Court on Sunday rejected the settlement deal between the State and the residents of the outpost Migron, allowing an extension of their evacuation date until August this year, and not next weekend, as was the original decision.

Lessons in Propaganda: Ha’aretz Bungles Numbers in Effort to Squash ‘Settler’ College

Anyone with a basic knowledge of third-grade math will raise an eyebrow at the mathematical gyrations displayed by the Israeli daily Ha'aretz regarding the efforts to block the certification of Ariel College, located east of the 67 armistice line, as a full-fledged university. The numbers in their report on academicians' objections to the new facility just don't jive.

Sunday Rematch: Frum Soccer Winners and their Caribbean ‘Victims’

The Crown Heights Caribbean soccer players who were destroyed last year by a team of Orthodox Jews are seeking revenge this Sunday.

Healing Under Fire: How Ashkelon’s Barzilay Medical Center Coped with Four Days of Rockets

"We had to decide which patients to transfer to our better protected facilities," CEO Dr. Chezy Levy explained what working under fire actually meant. Barzilay has some shielded buildings, but most aren't. "We transferred about 100 patients, or 20% of the patient population… You should have seen them transporting a premature baby in the incubator, while resuscitating it on the way…"

"I write this article in fear," starts Omar Sharif Jr.'s revelatory article in the Advocate, which dishes out coming out stories to fit every pallet. This one involves an Egyptian TV and screen actor, grandson of a Hollywood legend, who fled his homeland for the safety of America. And he's probably Jewish, too.

Mayor Bloomberg to the Homeless: No Cholent for You!

Former pro-Soviet Jewry activist and local Upper West Side all around tzadik Glenn Richter has been collecting food from the Ohav Zedek synagogue and similar institutions and bringing it to homeless shelters for more than 20 years, but recently, when he attempted to bring a traditional Shabbat cholent leftovers from a shul kiddush, he was refused on account of the Bloomberg administration's decree against giving too much salt, fat and fiber to the homeless.

Following the resignation of bribery plagued Senator Carl Kruger, voters in Sheepshead Bay, Brighton Beach, Gravesend, Mill Basin and Midwood, are choosing his successor. Both candidates, Democrat Lewis Fidler and Republican David Storobin, have not discussed the issues so much as exchanged wild and nasty accusations regarding Storobin's affiliations with… neo-Nazis.

‘Nose Job’ El-Balkimy, Egyptian MP, Loses Parliamentary Immunity

What do you have to do as an Egyptian Member of Parliament to earn the nickname Nose Job? Anwar El-Balkimy, of the Salafist Nour Party (that means he's sooo religious, he has one regular prayer rug and a special one for yomim tovim), told everybody he had been beaten and robbed of LE100,000 by thugs on 29 February. But according to Al Ahram, it was later discovered that his facial injuries were caused by cosmetic surgery on his nose.

Too Much Symbolism? South Bronx Kids Visit Anne Frank Center Betwixt Freedom Tower and...

Is there such a thing as too many metaphors for the triumph of the human spirit packed into one sidewalk, especially such a crowded sidewalk near Wall Street (add that, too, to the mix, wrap in an American flag and call it a day?). But I'm probably being too cynical. It's actually a heart warming story.

Thumbing its Nose at SWIFT Ban, Iran Relies on Alternative Methods to Continue its...

Five years ago, the SWIFT clearing system ban on Iranian banks would have yielded results, but nowadays Iran is relying on rogue financial systems created by South-American countries, and on its trade with India, China, Russia, Brazil and Turkey, to maintain the flow of money, goods and services for which it continues to pay with oil. It's business as usual for Iran.

Groggers’ Yidvid Nose Job Doc in Trouble with ASPS

A Miami plastic surgeon decided on an innovative way to reach the market of nose job enthusiasts – young Jews ages 15-30 – and have fun doing it. He hired the Groggers, an up and coming Orthodox rock band, and traded a nose job for their hilarious Jewish video entermercial "Jewcan Sam." Now the American Society of Plastic Surgeons wants to lower the boom on the guy.

As ‘Occasional’ Grads Continue to Fall on Israeli Cities, Ashdod Deputy Mayor Says Israel’s...

Feisty Jewish Former Congressman Alan Grayson Runs Red Light, Injures Two

The Jewish Congressman who became the darling of the left wing of the Democratic party but not so much with his district (he served only one term), who, in 2009, defined the Republican’s idea of health care plan as, "Don’t get sick, and if you do get sick, die quickly," may require some serious health care himself. Last Saturday he ran a red light with his car, smashed into a bus and injured two people.
