24 hr Israel News from Yapho

Apparently i24 News has been available outside Israel for some time. So, while it originates here (יפו), I haven’t heard of it until a few days ago. It’s worth checking out. online: http://www.i24news.tv/en/tv/live cellphone app: i24 news The broadcast suffers from occasional technical glitches: inability to upload stream fast enough to keep the stream going,…

How Israel’s PM / POTUS Can Vanquish Defamatory Media

The overwhelming preponderance of defamatory propaganda and false besmirching that issues constantly from plutocrat-funded, socialist / anarchist / anti-religious media, drowns out any hint of truth – now a global threat to free people, and their democratic governments, everywhere. How can out-of-control media, answering only to a few globalist socialist (Nazis on steroids) oligarchs, be…

Both “secular” and Ultra-Orthodox insist on…

Self-Fragmentation Of Israeli Torah Voting Bloc

“Religion” To preclude moderate centrist Israeli Jews from figuring out their political voice, the Israeli gov’t stopped gathering population information that distinguished the relative sizes of Israel’s various degrees of Judaic sectors. At the instruction of the Israeli government, the annual CBS census sterilized “religious” information from future surveys following the 2013 census. Ergo, the…
