When two people share the same goals, they can disagree – even strongly disagree – and still have a productive discussion about how to reach those shared objectives. As comedian and author Owen Benjamin explains, the problem with America today is we no longer share the same goals, and that’s tearing us apart.
In spite of the fact that the speech was too long (any speech that runs longer than 7 minutes is too long) I loved President Trump’s SOTU.

Dr. Mordechai Kedar, who knows more about the Arab-Muslim world than most Arab-Muslims, explains the two-and-a half-hour rant delivered by Mahmoud Abbas.
World leaders seemed shocked, just shocked by the sheer looniness and Castro-like length of the Abbas rant. But these overbred, overeducated members of the diplomatic corps have conveniently ignored Abbas’ infamous history: he received his, ahem, Ph.D from Moscow Central with a dissertation denying the Holocaust. During the 60s and 70s he was the bag man for various Islamist terrorist activities, most prominent, the Munich massacre. He’s as corrupt as the rest of the PA, stealing millions from international aid and enriching his clan.
In short, Abbas is an IslamoNazi who should have been put in the ground a long time ago.

“We have not taken a foreign land, nor did we take the property of others — for this is the inheritance of our fathers, which was for some time unjustly possessed by our enemies. But we, having the opportunity, returned to us the inheritance of our fathers.”
— First Book of the Maccabees, 15:33-34.
“לא ארץ נוכריה לקחנו ולא ברכוש זרים משלנו, כי אם נחלת אבותינו, אשר בידי אויבינו בעת מן העיתים בלא משפט נכבשה. ואנחנו כאשר הייתה לנו עת, הושיבונו נחלת אבותינו” (ספר מקבים א, טו’ לג-לד) [Read more…] about Chanukah 2017: The Battle of the Maccabees Continues
