Precarity

Precarity is a neoliberal term that was unfamiliar until I researched the theme of the National Women’s Studies Association (NWSA) conference. It means precarious, hazardous, risky, and it focuses mainly on the supposed “evils” of capitalism. Although life’s uncertainties have existed since the beginning of time, these women had come together to discuss the insecurities […]

Chelm

I have been thinking of Chelm* lately, not the real industrial town in Poland, home to about 18,000 Jews (60% of the population) until they were annihilated in World War II. Rather, what comes to mind is the Chelm of Jewish folklore, penned by Elijah B’al Shem of the real Chelm, and commercialized by Isaac […]

Muslim Refugee Resettlement: A Very Syrious Matter

The Jewish Community Federations of North America have come together to provide humanitarian aid for Syrian refugees. The organizations, paid contractors who are identified in the Jewish Coalition for Disaster Relief, are too numerous to mention here, but include AIPAC, AJC, B’nai B’rith Int’l, HIAS, ORT America, and National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW), who […]

Takk fyrir — “Thank you very much” in Icelandic

Open Letter to the Honorable People of Iceland: To the good people of Iceland, I offer our sincere appreciation for choosing righteousness over hate and the growing Islamic totalitarianism, and for voting against the Palestinian proposal to boycott Israel.  I confirmed the low-key news announcement with a call to your Washington Embassy on the morning […]

Iceland’s Meltdown

The city council of Reykjavik, Iceland, has fallen under the spell of a small, but toxic, Muslim population. Because of the customary Islamic narrative against Israel, the capital’s outgoing councilwoman, Bjork Vilhelmsdottir, declared a boycott against all Israeli products, citing oppression of Palestinians and the “wall”; she is also planning a mission to “help Palestinians.” […]

The Narrowness of the C-Span

C-Span’s mission for the past 35 years has allegedly been to make government more open to the American public, providing 8,000 hours of programming to 100 million American homes. While C-Span is committed to carrying Congressional proceedings in their entirety, sans editing, and claims no filtering to distort viewpoints, it abandons these lofty ideals of […]

A Question of Patriotism

The more we Americans began hearing about the possible nuclear pact with the Islamic Republic of Iran, aka “the Iran deal,” and the more President Obama saw that Americans of all faiths and political opinions realized that the pact was not in our best interest, and the more we heard the old anti-Semitic canards from […]

The Chautauquan Daily Strangles Truth and Slaughters Freedom of Speech

The guidelines for Letters to the Editor of The Chautauquan Daily include warnings that libelous, demeaning or accusatory statements are unacceptable. This also means that the truth must be curtailed, for it is the truth that supremacist Muslims find inappropriate and offensive, even by those who perpetrate the acts. Nevertheless, I refer to guest speaker […]

Benevolence Betrayed

To the best of my knowledge, when I was growing up everyone had a pushke, a tin can that served as an alms box.  I remember two types, cylindrical and squared, always wrapped in paper with a Star of David, and a coin slot at the top.  Each Sabbath (Friday) evening, we dropped coins into […]

Islam a la Fiorina

“There was once a civilization that was the greatest in the world.” And so began a mythical, deceptive tale by Carly Fiorina, when she spoke in praise of Islam within a mere two weeks of their bombing the World Trade Center. The concern is not that she was attempting to deceive others, but that she, […]

Jihadists of Tomorrow

Anti-Semitism is growing among German Muslim students. Following Koranic teachings, the early childhood brainwashing, and school books rife with politically biased indoctrination, these students openly declared that they will kill Jews, specifically threatening Max Moses Bonifer, student spokesman for the school system in Offenbach, Germany, a city of more than 16,000 Muslims. Teenage students in Landsberg, […]

A Birthright Abandoned

The mission statement of the Central Reform Congregation avows community, diversity, and commitment for a vibrant, Jewish presence in their city, St. Louis, Missouri, but specific Jewish issues and Israel are not addressed.  There is concern for a broad swath of social issues, although none to address Jewish survival and the ongoing, increasing threat of […]

Forward to Extinction

Jay Michaelson, contributing editor to The Forward, holds a position of unearned, unwarranted, and undeserved influence.  Although he writes for a Jewish newspaper, he fails to inform his readers that Islam is the enemy of Israel, the Jewish people and, in fact, all of America, and makes judgments that work against their survival.  He would […]
