Three Essential Films About Terrorism

Faye Dunaway once told me that to effectively play a role she had to commit to the character with all her heart and soul. She needed, she explained, to love the character. In terms of performance this means the actor has to empathize and identify with the fictional character. The danger lies in a character […]

Murder and the Absence of Newtonian Physics in Gazastan

As the latest ceasefire between the IslamoNazis of Gaza and the democratic state of Israel was announced, Gazans took to the street to extol their “historic victory.” Celebrants fired guns into the air. Not surprisingly, 2 innocent bystanders died, and 25 were wounded by falling bullets.

The Rape, Torture and Murder of Christopher Newsom & Channon Christian — Redux

I originally published this story on July 3, 2013 when the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin hysteria was in full flower. I am republishing it because when you are dealing with liberals and their endless race-baiting, the names change, but the terrible structure of leftist racism remains the same. I am republishing it because Obama sent three White […]

How to Resolve an IslamoNazi Hostage Crisis In One Easy Lesson

Wherever we turn, IslamoNazis strike terror into the heart of democracies through kidnappings and slaughter. America freed four high-level IslamoNazis in return for one worthless American traitor. There was a time when Israel did not negotiate with terrorists — until they did. Gilad Shalit was traded for over one thousand hardened terrorists, many with blood […]

Joan Winters: Restored to Memory at Last

by Rahel Jaskow It seemed like such a simple request: to photograph a grave in a nearby cemetery. “She is buried in the American Cemetery in Jerusalem,” Robert Avrech wrote in July 2011 at the end of his post about Joan Winters, an American actress who was found murdered at the foot of the Mount of Olives in […]

Obama’s Moral Perversion

Yesterday, Barack Obama said this about ISIS: “There has to be a common effort to extract this cancer so it does not spread. There has to be a clear rejection of the kind of a nihilistic ideologies. One thing we can all agree on is group like (ISIS) has no place in the 21st century. […]

20,000 Attend Pro-Israel Rally In India

Hindu-organized protest in Kolkata commemorates the Great Calcutta Killings in 1946, where thousands died. Nearly 20,000 people rallied in support of Israel in India on Saturday in the largest demonstration of its kind, The Times of Israel reported. Protesters carrying banners with pro-Israel messages gathered in the streets of Kolkata as community leaders made speeches declaring Israel’s right to […]

Welcome to Ferguson’s Future

Detroit. The very name of this once great city conjures images of a postmodern necropolis, a blasted landscape where feral dogs outnumber tax paying citizens. Of course, Detroit was once a prosperous city on the move. But then came July 23, 1967. The Detroit race riots.

Chicago Weekend Body Count — Shootings Leave 3 Dead, 16 Wounded

The race hustlers who now occupy the White House and the DOJ do not care about murdered black kids. If they did, they would be descending on Chicago where blacks are being murdered by other blacks in staggering numbers. But Ferguson gets their attention because they gain political capital by charging racism. Think of it […]

Jewish License Plates

Jews express their Jewishness in many ways. Here in California where there is a distinct car culture, vanity plates with Jewish themes are becoming increasingly popular.

Jew Without A Gun

Because of the riots in Ferguson, Missouri, I am republishing my three-part series about the Los Angeles Riots of 1992 in which Karen and I and the children were trapped for several frightening hours. We were unarmed, helpless save for our wits. The police were conspicuously absent and the bad guys, frequently armed with heavy […]

New Details in the Murder of Lt. Hadar Goldin

The IslamoNazis of Gaza are no different than the IslamoNazis of ISIS. New details of the murder of Lt. Hadar Goldin have been released by the IDF. The depravity of Hamas is beyond imagination.

Surprise! IslamoNazis Actually Operate in Gaza

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTdNvNXMOGk[/youtube]   Those liberals who report on Operation Protective Edge from Gaza fail to mention that they are severely restricted by Hamas in reporting what actually happens on the ground. If they report the truth Hamas will retaliate against them, often with fatal consequences. For instance, have you ever seen a Hamas terrorist in news […]

T’sha B’Av During Operation Protective Edge

Five misfortunes befell our fathers … on the ninth of Av. …On the ninth of Av it was decreed that our fathers should not enter the [Promised] Land, the Temple was destroyed the first and second time, Bethar was captured and the city [Jerusalem] was ploughed up. — Mishnah Ta’anit 4:6

Hollywood Jews… Not So Much

Jews run Hollywood. This is common knowledge — or slander, depending on the context. Would that it were true.  But based on the resounding silence of Jewish Hollywood as Israel fights Hamas, major producers, directors, writers, and stars (except for Jon Voight, who is not Jewish) are afraid of deviating from the Left’s reflexive anti-Israel dogma.
