Puerto Rican Antisemitism

2018-01-17T18:15:14.901+03:00

(image)
A column published by Puerto Rico's most circulated newspaper said disaster relief decisions on the island are controlled "behind closed doors" by "the Jews." Wilda Rodriguez, a columnist for San Juan's El Nuevo Dia, writes in the piece "What does ‘the Jew' want with the colony?" that "the Jews" are the "secret structure that rules the United States … behind closed doors."

:"We need to know who is being called on to make the decisions," Rodriquez wrote, according to a Washington Free Beacon translation. "I am speaking here of the secret structure that controls the United States exclusively for the elite."

"Only behind closed doors do the most elite politicians speak of the power of the American people as a parallel government organized by the forces of wealth and violence (the war machine) from Wall Street," Rodriguez wrote. "It is not Congress. The Congress will in the end do what ‘the Jew' wants. So what does ‘the Jew' want with the colony?" she wrote. "That is the question." -more

ISIS v Hamas

2018-01-10T18:37:33.501+03:00

(image) Accoding to the Washington Post: T
he extremist Islamic State group’s branch in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula has taken a simmering dispute with the Palestinian Hamas group based in nearby Gaza to new levels, releasing a 22-minute video in which it calls on its followers to attack the group and shows the execution of a man it said was a collaborator.

Analysts say the escalation has the potential to destabilize an already fragile security situation in Gaza, the Palestinian enclave that Hamas has controlled for the past decade.

“Never surrender to them. Use explosives, silenced pistols, and sticky bombs. Bomb their courts and their security locations, for these are the pillars of tyranny that prop up its throne,” says the knife-wielding narrator of the video, according to a translation distributed by the SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors extremist websites.-more

Jewish students in the UK

2018-01-09T06:15:16.028+03:00

(image) In a survey sent out across the UK, students were asked to choose their faith from a list of options, but the country's fifth-largest faith was missing. It sparked outrage online, with many people on Twitter accusing the National Union of Students of "forgetting Jewish students again", as it emerged that the organisation made the same omission six months previously. Students complained after a survey in July did not feature the religion, and NUS president Shakira Martin said the issue would be resolved.

Iranian Anti-government Demonstrations

2018-01-01T06:15:25.600+03:00

(image) According to the Wall Street Journal:
Anti-government demonstrations broke out for a third day across Iran on Saturday, extending some of the country’s most widespread street protests in nearly a decade, with protesters demanding an end to the Islamic Republic regime and the rule of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Video shot from inside Iran and shared with The Wall Street Journal suggest large rallies at dozens of cities across the country.

The protesters seen in those videos bypassed calls for reform and branded both the reformist and hard-line factions of the government as outdated and needing to be replaced.

Working class and labor unions joined the middle class and student activists in dozens of cities and small towns from Tehran to Ahvaz and Qom, a key regime’s religious stronghold. In the videos shared with the Journal, protesters were seen chanting “Death to Khamenei,” and “We don’t want the Islamic Republic, we don’t want it” and “Reformist and hard-liners, you are both done.”

The protests present a challenge for Iran’s leadership. The presence of working-class protesters that traditionally comprise the Islamic Republic’s power base makes it harder for Mr. Rouhani’s government to dismiss the uprising as opposition instigated by foreign powers.

In the capital, at one point more than 100 people were seen gathered outside the gates of Tehran University and chanting slogans including, “Leave Gaza, leave Lebanon, my life for Iran,” a critique of spending on Iranian proxies abroad, and “Death to the dictator!” Video distributed on social media showed hundreds of young people at the university shouting slogans against Mr. Khamenei, as security forces stood by.

A few hundred riot police were deployed on nearby roads and blocked access to the university’s main gates. Plainclothes police were seen arresting one man near the Tehran University protests Saturday, although it wasn’t clear if he had taken part in the demonstrations. Police attempted to disperse the crowd using loudspeakers.- more

Trivia Game

2017-12-27T06:15:25.679+03:00

(image) The story, according to the JTA:
French publishing house pulps kids’ paper claiming Israel ‘not a real country’
JTA Dec 26, 2017
One of France’s oldest publishing houses announces the recall of a magazine for children featuring trivia game cards stating that Israel and North Korea are not real countries. The cards that appeared in the January 2018 edition of the Youpi magazine, which belongs to the Groupe Bayard publishing house, read: “197: We call these 197 countries states, like France, Germany or Algeria. There are others, too, but not all the world’s countries agree that all of them are real countries (for example the State of Israel or North Korea.”)

CRIF, the federation of Jewish communities and organizations of France, protested the publication of the cards. Francis Kalifat, the president of CRIF, called the cards, intended for children aged 5-10, a “factual lie and a flagrant one at that.”

Pascal Ruffenach, the president of the Bayard publishing house, which was founded in the 19th century, said in a statement that his establishment “clearly never intended to cast into doubt Israel’s existence,” saying the card in question was an “error.”
The publishing house said it will recall the magazines and pulp the cards in question.

They Drove Us Out

2017-12-24T19:15:55.145+03:00

(image)
* * *
Twenty five years ago I wrote a graphic novel called Trees, the Green Testament.
It was heralded as a book of prophecy and I was described as a prophet.
I was no less frightened than the prophet Jonah. He tried to escape the burden of his calling. What he did was to flee on a boat from the city of Jaffa. His attempt was thwarted by his being swallowed by a “great fish.”

I fled from my burden by turning my back on the book, getting on with cartooning, and ignoring the public’s demand for the book.

Now, as I approach the age of eighty, I recognize the error of my cowardly decision.
I am punished by seeing a world in which the Ten Commandments are a threat instead of a guide.
I am shaken by seeing Diaspora Jews condemning the Jewish State.
I am crushed by seeing Christian Churches accepting Replacement Theology, abandoning Israel, and ignoring the genocide of Christians in Africa and the Middle East.
I am horrified by the antisemitism of western colleges and universities.

Now, as I approach the age of eighty, I have republished Trees in an annotated edition (the original but enhanced by explanations of much of the book’s hidden messages.)

UN anti-Jerusalem Vote

2017-12-21T18:15:29.211+03:00

(image) According to the Guardian:
Trump threatens to cut aid to countries over UN Jerusalem vote

Donald Trump has threatened to withhold “billions” of dollars of US aid from countries which vote in favour of a United Nations resolution rejecting the US president’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

His comments came after the US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, wrote to about 180 of 193 member states warning that she will be “taking names” of countries that vote for a general assembly resolution on Thursday critical of the announcement which overturned decades of US foreign policy.

Speaking at a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Trump amplified Haley’s threat. “Let them vote against us,” he said. “We’ll save a lot. We don’t care. But this isn’t like it used to be where they could vote against you and then you pay them hundreds of millions of dollars,” he said. “We’re not going to be taken advantage of any longer.” -- more




Dry Bones Predicts

2017-12-20T06:15:36.614+03:00

(image) Permit me to share my insights into what I believe is a major change in Middle East realities.

First The Past.
In 1948 the Kingdom of Jordan invaded, occupied, and ruled Judea and Samaria and the city of Jerusalem. They held it for 19 years (until the six-day war in 1967). There was no Arab/Muslim move to give the area to the local Arab population. During those same 19 years Gaza was ruled by Egypt, again with no thought of giving the area to local Arabs.

Local Arabs back then had loyalties to the local regions where they lived. They were not "Palestinians".
They identified themselves as Hebronites, Jerusalemites, Bethlehemites, Gazans, etc. Calling the local Arabs "Palestinians" was a clever ploy in the battle to destroy the Jewish state. Instead of the Arab/Israeli conflict (with little Israel facing a massive alliance of enemy Arab states), the new paradigm was the Israeli/Palestinian conflict (with a weak "Palestinian" population facing a powerful Israel).

Now the Present.
But there's been a fundamental change in Middle East realities. The Sunni Arab governments and the State of Israel now face the threat of a common and powerful enemy. Our region is being invaded by the Iranian Shi'ites and their proxies. The "Palestinians" are now a hindrance to the natural alliance of Sunni Arab governments and the State of Israel.

And The Future.
I believe that the Sunni Arab governments will dump the "Palestinian" cause and accept Jerusalem as Israel's capital and holy city. As shown in today's cartoon I predict that the "Palestinian"cause will stay alive in the hearts and minds of American Leftist Jews, in the sermons of the Replacement Theology Christian Churches, and the propaganda pronouncements of the Iranian Shi'ite enemy.
