The Zionist Circular Maze

Jewish institutions need the IHRA definition simply because they have managed to impose such a definition --  since the acceptance of the IHRA definition points at boundless political power, the IHRA definition serves to target and suppress any exploration, discourse or even  discussion of such power.

PayPal or Z-Pal

It is likely that PayPal succumbed to pressure from one Zionist body or another. Their objective is obviously a crude attempt to interfere with my ability to raise the necessary funds for me to avoid risking bankruptcy.

To be Remembered

What attracts world leaders to that wall? Is it possible that our world leaders are all (somehow) so attracted to walls that they do not even mind  being caught on camera in such an intimate moment with that one particular wall?  And if not, how do we explain the fact that so many of our world leaders are caught so close to that wall with their eyes closed?

Gilad Needs Additional Support

In March I was sued for libel by the chairman of the Campaign Against Anti Semitism (CAA), Gideon Falter, for suggesting that ‘Antisemitism is a business plan.’ The case has now settled but I am left with a huge hole in my pocket. I remain short by about £40.000. Asking you for money is very upsetting for me but this is an important battle for all of us...

Talmud and Israel

The title of Ronen Bergman’s book, ‘Rise and Kill First,’  comes from the Babylonian Talmud: “If someone comes to kill you, rise up and kill him first.” In his recent appearance on Democracy Now, Bergman repeated this phrase, arguing that the Talmudic verse defines the lethal practice that Israel has used for three generations.

Hamas Won Again

Israeli military doesn’t have a military solution to Israel’s  security problems. The IDF cannot win a war with either Hamas or  Hezbollah. This may explain PM Netanyahu’s frequent confrontations with Syria and Iran:  winning battles against sovereign entities may simply be more achievable for Israel and its Lobby than quelling unruly freedom fighters.

Jewish Politics in America – A Post Political View

“The two contradictory Jewish ideologies (Identitarianism and Israelism) are each well- ensconced within the two rival ideologies that are tearing America apart. The red Republican counties want America to be Israel Again. The large metropolitan areas near America’s coasts have adopted the twelve tribes of Israel model – a loose Identitarian coalition threatened by Samaritans, Canaanites, Amalekites or as Hillary Clinton calls them the ‘basket of deplorables.’

Divide and Conquer

The old political battle between Left and Right has been replaced by post- political Identitarian wars. WW3 is not going to be fought between countries, or states or across borders. It will be a war that splits states, societies and even families apart.

Being in Midterm Election

“America is divided into two camps: the Americans and the Identitarians. The Americans are those who see themselves primarily as American patriots. They are driven by rootedness and heritage. For them, the promise to make ‘America great again’ confirms that utopia is nostalgia and that the progressive and liberal offerings are nothing short of an ongoing disaster. The Identitarians, on the other hand, are those who subscribe to liberal and progressive politics. They see themselves primarily as LGBTQ, Latino, Black, Jewish, feminist and so on. Their bond with the American national or patriotic ethos is secondary and often even non-existent.

Is Citizenship a Jewish Issue?

Mr. Trump has made no secret of his desire to stop illegal immigration from the south, and Jews may rightly be incensed that he is using immigration as a campaign tactic, particularly demonising Hispanics, but Ms Kushner fails to show how this is a Jewish issue rather than an issue for the United States as a whole.

Preventing the next Pogrom

To prevent the next pogrom we need to emancipate ourselves from the current tyranny of correctness and reinstate the Greek agora into our midst. Our social media networks could become a true marketplace of ideas, encouraging people to challenge each other and to constantly rethink their own positions.

Cherev Gideon- Pennsylvania's 'Israeli Tactical Training Academy.'

Last Saturday we heard the disturbing news of a gun attack on a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania that left eleven people dead. Today I was surprised to find out that some in Pennsylvania had seen it coming.  The following 2017 Israeli TV video tells the story of Cherev Gideon, an IDF like Jewish militia operating in Pennsylvania that trains American Jews to “shoot the Israeli Style.”
