 With the nations of Europe and the rest of the world lining up to support the PLO bid to receive non-member state status at the UN General Assembly, it is worth noting two anniversaries of related but forgotten events. Of course, everyone knows the obvious anniversary - Nov. 29, 1947 was the day the UN General Assembly passed the plan to recommend the partition the British Mandate of Palestine into a Jewish state and an Arab state. The Jews accepted the plan. The Arabs -- both local a…

This week's Tribal Update the weekly satirical newscast produced by Latma, the Hebrew-language satirical media criticism website I run was written and filmed before the wonderful ceasefire Wednesday night. But it is still relevant and hilarious now. We bring you Max Damage from the BBC explaining the BBC's definition of Israel's right to defend itself. We bring you our favorite Palestinian terrorists Jamil and Awad who present Hamas's most updated demands on Israel. And we bring you Israel's def…

The cease-fire agreement that Israel accepted Wednesday night to end the current round of Palestinian rocket and missile attacks is not a good deal for Israel by any stretch of the imagination. At best, Israel and Hamas are placed on the same moral plane. The cease-fire erases the distinction between Israel, a peace-seeking liberal democracy that wants simply to defend its citizens, and Hamas, a genocidal jihadist terrorist outfit that seeks the eradication of the Jewish people and the dest…

I've been on the road for the past several days and out of the loop so to speak. I just got home last night.I read a blog post by Jonathan Tobin from Commentary today where I discovered that the post-Zionist poster boy of the American Jewish left Peter Beinart is now accusing Israel's non-Jewish supporters of being anti-Semites. Beinart you see, thinks that an anti-Semite is someone who criticizes anti-Zionist (or post-Zionist, or fair-weathered Zionist) American Jews for hanging Israe…

I fail to understand how anyone can side with Hamas against Israel without being Hamas supporters, and therefore by definition supporters of the destruction of Israel. Hamas has never tried to hide its genocidal, Islam-inspired intention to destroy Israel and eradicate the Jewish people. They've proudly asserted it. Here too it is worth noting that an attempt to "avoid escalation," is actually an attempt to preserve Hamas rule over Gaza. That is, an attempt to "avoid escalation" is pro-Hama…

Before the Islamic war against Israel was reignited again this week, my incredible team of comedic geniuses wrote the script for Latma's weekly satirical newscast The Tribal Update. Among other things, Israeli Arab Knesset Member Abdul Messit (Incite) provides an English language musical explanation for the language of the Arab man. Aside from that, Prof. Borochov discusses the wonderful phenomenon of former generals who become peace warriors after the retire and begin working for the EU. I…

Next to the American people themselves, Israel is no doubt the biggest immediate loser in the U.S. presidential election. President Obama's foreign policy is predicated on the false notion that the U.S. and Israel themselves are the principal causes of the Islamic world's antipathy toward them. Consequently, Obama has cultivated the anti-American, genocidally anti-Jewish Muslim Brotherhood and facilitated the Brotherhood's takeover of Egypt and Tunisia and its gains in strength throughout the Mi…

 Mitt Romney wasn't a bad candidate. He ran a fairly strong race. He made a few errors. And he made many good moves. Certainly he was adequate. And he was probably the strongest Republican candidate among the primary field of contenders. That is, he was the best man available to run against Barack Obama. And he did a pretty good job. Obama, on the other hand, was a horrible candidate. He was mean and vindictive. He was contemptuous and superficial. He ran on irrelevancies lik…
