Netanyahu: World condemns porch renovation by Jews, ignores calls and actions to murder Jews

A powerful speech. We've learned a lot from the Shoah, in particular - not to trust the rest of the world when it comes to a threat of genocide. But of course, Netanyahu is referring to the leadership of the rest of the world, and no - they have learned nothing, just as horrible as they were in the 30-s and 40-s.

PM: World silent while Iran, Hezbollah threaten to destroy Israel

Ahead of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Netanyahu tells special Knesset session 'world condemns Gilo construction, but not mufti's call to kill Jews.' Speaker: We can't deny tragedies of other nations

Media odd way of describing Israeli channel 10 averting shut down

Israel's 2nd commercial channel, 3rd non-cable national channel - called "channel 10" - was about to be shut down due to mounting debt and lack of viewership. The TV channel is heavily regulated and politicians tell it how it must spend money it earns from commercials. Basically, a group of corrupt bureaucrats who have the best interest of its competitor "channel 2", successfully derailed investments by private entities. This is a travesty.

However, WaPo/AP - has a completely different view of the situation:

Shutdown of Israeli TV station critical of Netanyahu averted

News flash: almost all news departments in Israel are hostile,critical of, Netanyahu. This is the legacy of the 90-s, when Netanyahu was the "put the breaks on Oslo" candidate - and every media person out there made him their personal enemy. Since then, they managed to pin him with every evil known to a lefty. Its amazing Netanyahu is still so popular despite the non-stop negative publicity he is getting in Israel.

Saddam Hussein's Intelligence: 'Pokemon is a zionist plot'

I can't stress enough how funny the following quote is:

In a memorandum from 2001, the Iraqi General Intelligence Service reported to the Presidential Palace that the animated series "Pokemon" was very dangerous to Iraqi youth because of its sweeping popularity. "The meaning of the name 'Pokemon' in Hebrew," the intelligence people added, "is 'I am a Jew,'" adding that the series - a Japanese creation - was aimed at corrupting Iraqi children without anyone noticing.

More comic pure gold, here.

Violent assault on Jews is apperantly protected free speech in CA

Insanity. I wonder if the choke hold I would have put on the assailant would have counted as free speech as well. Hold till purple. Release. Re-choke.

CA Judge Deems Ramming Jewish Woman with Shopping Cart ‘Free Speech’ (Via Israelmatzav)

On Thursday U.S. District Judge Richard Seeborg said the harassment, even if true, constituted protected political speech and dismissed the case against the university.

Seeborg said the university did not have any obligation to intervene in any dispute where a private individual on campus was allegedly interfering with another’s constitutional rights. He instead appeared to indicate that the incident was an outcome of Felber’s counter protest.

Felber and another Jewish student claimed the University did not do enough to prevent the harassment which included the Muslim group conducting checkpoints around the campus. Students were asked if they were Jewish while passing the checkpoints.

“The incident in which Felber was assaulted with a shopping cart, for example, did not occur in the context of her educational pursuit,” Seeborg stated. “Rather, that event occurred when she, as one person attempting to exercise free speech rights in a public forum, was allegedly attacked by another person who likewise was participating in a public protest in a public forum.”
