I think it was Benjamin D’Israeli who replied to a taunt by Irish political leader Daniel O’Connell: “Yes, I am a Jew, and when the ancestors of the right honorable gentleman were brutal savages in an unknown island, mine were priests in the temple of Solomon.” So, Jews have been picking on the British for […]

CBN’s Gordon Robertson looks at a few of the creative “environment-saving” ideas that Israelis have either invented or improved upon. Towards the end, one of the interviewees says, we have to start showing the world who we are and what we do, rather than engage in constant bickering. Amen to that.

I totally adore Rabbi Amnon Yitzhak because he’s such a showman, and it feels nice to have him on our side. I disagree with him on many things across the board, and I couldn’t live in his section of Torahville, but, naturally, I agree with him on the big stuff, and he’s so entertaining when […]

In looking for interesting videos with a Jewish angle, I clicked on this one out of curiosity (you don’t know me, but I’m a sucker for a good Disney yarn), and it occurred to me that trailers are made very differently these days. It used to be the trailer would tease you into coming to […]

Mark Dice argues the sale will serve two goals: pay off the national debt to China, so they can sell it for scrap metal; and prevent a nuclear war, which would surely happen should we not pay off our debt. Isn’t that why we bombed Japan? I mean, ya gotta’ pay your national debts, what’s fair […]
