Israel, the EU, and IslamoNazis

Below the fold is an interesting article by Alex Benjamin, a Jewish blogger who lives in Brussels. Benjamin believes that since the Paris massacre, the EU has begun to realize that its kumbaya world view of Islamism is suicidal and that Israel, whom the EU reflexively demonizes at every turn, is Europe’s best hope in […]

Thanksgiving 2015: The Children of the Children of Israel

As far as I know, there are only two countries in the world that were founded on the idea of hope. America and Israel. And what was the hope? The hope of achieving religious freedom, and freedom from the tyranny of centralized government. The Children of Israel, fleeing Egyptian slavery and religious persecution, settled the […]

Jews With Guns

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gl-HzgpMBo[/youtube]   I’ve developed close friendships with several LAPD officers over the past few years. They love making fun of all the stupid stuff they see on TV cop shows. At the same time, the officers I know — men and women alike — are dying to get hired as consultants on cop shows so […]

Will the Threat From ISIS End the Double Standard on Israel?

Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Associate Dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, is one of my oldest friends. We attended Yeshiva Flatbush elementary school together. When Karen and I made our first exploratory trip to Los Angeles, Abe was one of the first people we contacted. At the most difficult time in our lives, Karen and I […]

Whistleblower Reveals Official Background Check for Syrian Refugees

I met the nervous Whistleblower in a Beverly Hills parking garage in the middle of the night. To prove his/her identity, Whistleblower showed me a Homeland Security ID. Whistleblower lit a cigarette. His/her hands were trembling so badly I helped guide the match to the cigarette. “Why are you doing this?” I asked. “The public […]

Obama’s War on Reality

Obama’s hour-long press conference at the G20 yesterday was disgraceful and embarrassing. He was acidly dismissive of any critique of his failed policies. Famously thin-skinned, he scolded normally compliant reporters who dared probe his tired verbal gymnastics. Obama characterized the Paris massacre as a “setback” for his policy of containment — a policy that he, astonishingly, claims […]

Paris and The Beasts of Islam

The French have spent years bashing Israel and supporting the so-called Palestinians (Palestinian is not a nationality but a profession) in a desperate bid to appease global IslamoNazis. A few weeks ago, the French voted in favor of raising a Palestinian flag at the UN headquarters. “This flag is a powerful symbol, a glimmer of hope […]

The Church of Climate Change

The astute blogger Bookworm Room has just published an important essay by our mutual friend Wolf Howling about so-called climate change, a leftist religion that seeks to enforce its dogma on a global scale. The climate-change movement brooks no dissent; its green inquisition will not hesitate to destroy the reputations and livelihoods of any who […]

Veteran’s Day, 2015: My Favorite Veteran, Rabbi Abraham Avrech z’l

My father, Rabbi Chaplain Abraham Avrech passed away on March 15, 2014. This is the second Veteran’s Day without my father’s physical presence in this world. He is gone, but like all veteran’s certainly not forgotten. Take a moment to ponder the enormous sacrifices made by our nation’s heroes and their families. Millions and millions […]

The Arab Muslim Wars Against The Jewish State: What You See is What You See

  In 1966, the great American artist Frank Stella explained modern art with a simple but not simplistic epigram: “What you see is what you see.” Stella was demystifying abstract art. He was saying: There are no metaphors, no hidden meanings. There is only the surface, and for Stella the surface is a worthy reality. […]

Another Obamacare Failure: $1.23 Billion Taxpayer Funds Sunk in Failed Co-Ops

With so much going on in the world—all of it bad if not catastrophic—we tend to forget that Barack Obama and the Democrat party are responsible for destroying the world’s greatest health care system. Which is not to say that it was perfect. Nothing is. But one simple improvement would allow citizens to purchase health […]

A Hollywood Tale About a Gun-Free Zone

A few years ago I was talking with a Hollywood friend about guns. She was unhappy that I’m a gun owner. Honest—unlike most lefties—my friend told me that the Second Amendment was “out of date and should no longer be valid.” She wanted guns to be confiscated. “Do you think the gangs in LA or […]

Prager U, Left But Really Right

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWzEL2Mlr-g[/youtube]   Successful liberals live by conservative values. It’s true. The liberal musician, the liberal chef, the liberal writer—all swear by things conservatives love, like competition, earned reward, and, yes, profit and the bottom line. Greg Gutfeld, bestselling author of, “How To Be Right: The Art of Being Persuasively Correct”, explains. Order “How to Be […]

Hitler in Gaza, Cutting-Edge Arab Fashion

Hitler is not an Arab word. Hitler translated into Arabic, is, um, Hitler. As in Adolph Hitler, the man who brought about the genocide of six million European Jews, the man who is a role model for millions of Arab Muslims across the globe.
