I was considering embedding here some lengthy discussions of the same issue, but this lad is saying it all in under 3 minutes and you have things to do this Sunday.

Some Palestinian speaker detailing his view on negotiations over “Palestine,” and meanwhile offers a very good and reliable plan for Israel to deal with his kind. Just change the name to “Israel” and act accordingly, the situation would be resolved in under a day. As a good friend of mine pit it, once you place […]

A two-legged dog who has learned to walk upright has been made an honorary sergeant in the U.S. army for inspiring disabled war veterans. Faith, an eight-year old labrador-chow cross is a favourite at army bases and hospitals, where she ‘marches’ around on her hind legs, dressed in a military jacket. Her owner Jude Stringfellow, […]

Not bad as a comic routine and as an honest depiction of the world view of a thirteen-year-old boy. The problem starts when some people hold on to the same ideas well into their adult years, without reexamining them. Then they become stale and limited. Thank God for cynical Bar Mitzvah boys.

Some 240 years ago, a man named al-Fishawy began serving coffee to his friends in an alley of Cairo’s Khan al-Khalili district each evening after prayers. The al-Fishawy’s gatherings grew larger and stretched longer, and the rest is history. Qahwat al-Fishawi (Fishawy’s Café) is the most renowned café in the Arab world and a monument […]

Israel’s Artillery Corps revealed the previously classified Tammuz missile for the first time, that was operational in Gaza and Lebanon wars. With a range of 15.5 miles, the missile is equipped with an electric optic sensor that transmits the image of its target to its operators inside an armored personnel carrier who then manually drive […]

Cantors Angela Buchdahl and Julia Katz sing an American-Israeli anthem during Shabbat worship services at the Central Synagogue, June 14, 2013. I chose to post it because I was curious to hear Buchdahl’s voice, after the brouhaha of the last few days regarding her illusive Orthodox conversion. She’s probably the new face of the reform […]

An animation video created in response to the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict, suggesting Israel has the right to defend itself. What a concept!

Comedian Jackie Mason talks about the supposed Israeli/Palestinian conflict, the “settlements” in Judea and Samaria and Israel’s survival. “If six Jews extend a kitchen or a toilet, they say we’re destroying the peace process.”

You think you really know about the Palestinian refugees? This short animated clip covers the story of how they became refugees and why they have stayed that way. It also shows the history of Jewish refugees from Arab lands — a story that’s been ignored.

There are sea lion sculptures in East River park on the Lower East Side – but this one is very much alive, if somewhat confused. Video was posted August 8, 2013. Is he visiting these guys?

I suppose we picked up a theme today, kind of a synergy with the photo of the day. The part where they try to load the poor animal into a van, to take it to the Pegasus rescue center, is epic. His name is Eldad.

This footage of Moslem hatred and incitement was proudly taken by a Moslem on the Temple Mount and originally uploaded by the Arab website hon.ps. The original title in Arabic, “تصدي المرابطين في المسجد الاقصى لاستفزاز احد المتدينين اليهود بعد محاولته الوصول للساحات الداخلية ” translates roughly as “A response to a single Jew who […]

Transcript: A word to rioting Muslims Well, once again we see multiple violent tantrums from the religion of permanent offence. Some things never change, do they? Once again we see Islam self-detonate (if you’ll pardon the expression) and show once again why it’s about as welcome on this planet as an asteroid. Once again we […]

The gifted actor and writer of Python fame John Cleese was asked what he thought about British culture and the recent London riots during an interview in Australia, in 2011. He replied: ‘I’m not sure what’s going on in Britain. Or, let me say this – I don’t know what’s going on in London, because […]

Here’s a video by legendary singer Esther Ofarim. Back in 1988, I was the first DJ on the Arutz 7 boat off the coast of Tel Aviv. My dad was still alive, listening to me on his radio in Ramat Chen every night as I would bring the broadcast to its conclusion around midnight – […]

It’s the sketch with Jack Benny and Mel Blanc as the troubadour who says Si. How does it compare to the Monty Python sketch, about the “Knights Who say Nee!” ? I see a connection.

Amir Darzi taped this perfect adaptation of Lennon’s “I don’t believe” (aka “God” on the Plastic Ono Band album) litany, applied to Israel’s election season last January. The imitation is perfect, the clips, edited by Moran Azulai, are also very 1970. In spots it really rings like a voice from beyond the grave commenting on […]

As a young EMT on a Jerusalem ambulance, Eli Beer realized that, stuck in brutal urban traffic, they often arrived too late to help. So he organized a group of volunteer EMTs — many on foot — ready to drop everything and dash to save lives in their neighborhood. Today, United Hatzlah uses a smartphone […]
