Open Thread Friday


You know the drill.


  1. Anti-Israel? AntiZionist?

    "“Someone was once asked, how can you recognize a Jew? The answer was: It’s simple. If you see a pregnant woman, get close to her and toss a piece of gold next to her, or at her feet. If the fetus jumps out of his mother’s womb and grabs the gold, you know that he is a Jew.”Nabih Berri, the speaker of the Lebanese Parliament

  2. Please join this public group on FaceBook:

    New York Times HATES Israel:

    PS: This is the ONLY Facebook Group
    whose theme is that a specific newspaper hates
    a specific nation. Think about that!



  3. ONLY JUDAISM began when
    MILLIONS of people personally witnessed:

    [1] the Ten Plagues in Egypt

    [2] the splitting of the Red Sea

    [3] G_D speaking at Mount Sinai

    [4] 40 years of miracles in the Sinai wilderness:
    the Clouds of Glory, the mann they ate for 40 years,
    the Well of Miriam, etcetera, etcetera.

    All other faiths began when ONE MAN claimed
    a revelation and later gradually gained followers.


    Judaism is the ONLY faith that NEVER
    approved of military force to gain converts.

    Jews are the ONLY people who NEVER
    had a tradition of hunting animals for sport.

    Jews are the ONLY people who survived
    for 18 centuries without an army of any kind.

    The language of the Jews -- Hebrew -- is the ONLY
    language ever to become the daily spoken language
    of a nation of millions of people, after having been
    categorized as a dead language for almost 2,000 years.

    Judaism values: logic, knowledge, scholarship and
    quoting sources accurately, far more than any other faith.

    The phrase G_D-OF-ISRAEL occurs 199 times in the Hebrew Bible.
    Notice that the G_D Who created the entire universe
    repeatedly associates Himself and identifies Himself with Jews.

  4. ONLY JUDAISM teaches:

    “…Whoever quotes a thing in the name of the person who said it, he [or she] brings redemption [geulah] into the world.”

    SOURCE: Mishnah, tractate Avot,
    chapter 6, end of paragraph 6


    ONLY JUDAISM teaches:

    “[Giving honor to] a Torah scholar of illegitimate birth takes precedence over [giving honor to] an ignorant High Priest.”

    SOURCE: Mishnah, tractate Horiyot,
    last chapter, end of last paragraph

    =================================== is the web site of a former Methodist minister who converted to Judaism and is now an Orthodox Rabbi.

  5. ONLY JUDAISM teaches:

    “If your wife is short, bend down
    so you can hear her whisper.”

    SOURCE: Rabbi Pappa speaking to Abaye in the
    Babylonian Talmud, tractate Baba Metzia, page 59A.

  6. Institutions like the University are screwed. They have become a Marxist factory churning out victim grievance ideology aimed at destroying Western civilization. Most here know all the examples. Here's a great example about Canadian native Studies.

    I live near the Six Nation Reserve and know many Native Americans so I see a lot of the nonsense up close and you can't be rational with friends who are dear but brainwashed. I don't even try. I often miss my University days and the heady rush of intellectual rigor but if I had to do it all over again today I would go to trade school because University is almost useless except for the hard sciences and the SJW nutjobs have even invaded those realms. And, I lack the Science gene, even though I find it fascinating.

    1. The antisemitic graduation ceremony at NYU is another example. It will take years to remedy the university. People must recognize the extremism and hate of these SJWs, but are unwilling to take their abuse. They will likely overplay their hand, if they have not done so already.

    2. Geeze, I hope so oldschool. But I am pessimistic because from what I've seen there is a lot of money to be made from all this by people who would otherwise be working at gas stations. Cash cows like that don't disappear overnight.

    3. oldschooltwentysix,
      Are you talking about that guy who is going on to teach journalism? I find it perverse.

    4. Yeah, that guy. Reminds of Salaita. Unless he remains in his safe space bubble, would not be surprised to see a similar end.

      No question that these guys have a profitable schtick, enhanced by Trump, to keep up the antics. It's not a zero sum game. But they are losing. They scream louder, pretending they are winning, and it has an inverse effect. Many scream out of fear to look like apostates.

      The more the sun shines, the more these wrongdoers will lose influence in all matters. Ratings to hear their message have cratered as people learn about the deceits they practiced to defeat deplorables and the like, including Israel. The issue has been joined by the likes of Tlaib and Omar, but is it really popular outside their circles? Or will this allow their harmful intentions to be revealed to a larger, formerly unaware audience?

  7. Now HERE'S some Treason for ya! Giving aid and comfort to the enemy. Obama Administration Alumni Advising Iranian Regime
    on Dealing with Trump.

    Or Logan Act. Lock 'em up!

  8. And now the California Democratic Party getting it all exactly backwards:

    Ignorant hypocrites turning historical and present realities on their heads. Every time I think I miss California I read something like this.

  9. The Jew hating morons attending Al Quds demo in Toronto expected a crowd of 3000 but got less than 400. Good news but 400 is still too many. No reports of Hezbollah flags and signs as in previous years or outright blatant hate stuff as in previous years probably due to 100 police with orders to be on the lookout and make arrests, Canada has pretty stringent hate laws and this year Ontario has a Trump like Premier.

  10. " Arabs riot as Jews are allowed to enter Temple Mount on Jerusalem Day
    As the police attempted to enter the place, Arab worshipers began throwing stones, chairs and other objects at the forces."

    ya know, Is anyone else sick and tired of f**king rioting Arabs? Will the morons ever grow up, become civilized? Close the place off to Arabs for a year or two withg the caveat they will be allowed back when and if they can act like mature human beings. This is a Holy Place, NOT a f**king punk mosh pit.

  11. This is how bad things are. I recently was doing some internet research into Palestinian Terrorism for a planned post and here's what happened. About 1 in 5 articles were about Palestinian Arabs committing terrorism while 4 of 5 were about Irgun and the Stern Group. Redefining search parameters got me the info I wanted but the lesson was clear. The narrative has been defined by the Jew haters and Pro-Palestinian crowd. Naive novices looking for info would come away thinking the Jews were the devil. Not sure how one would go about ever fixing this mess.

    1. Doodad, just-in-case you did not know, inc is run by the Leftist,
      intersectionist, Social Justice Warriors.

    2. It fixes by itself. Eventually, there is too large a disconnect between what the 4-5 say and the reality. The pro-Palestinian crowd proves what they're about time and again, even if among themselves they are convinced of their nobility. The schtick is coming to an end. With all the BDS hate, Israel is moving forward and other states increasingly realize the benefit of friendly relations.

      Most people are not involved in the issues and instinctively understand that Israel is the friend to America, and progressives spouting otherwise further damage their credibility about all things.
