Persistent Ultra-Orthodox Khareidim Attacks On Israeli Supreme Court

It appears from an analysis of multiple reports, from multiple media sources, that “formal commission of inquiry to examine judges’ conflicts of interests” is a dog-whistle for persistent Ultra-Orthodox Khareidim attacks to tear down the Israeli Supreme Court in order to replace it, by default, with their kangaroo Ultra-Orthodox Khareidim High Court–the Ultra-Orthodox Khareidim rival…

Covid-19: as if springing-out of the ground

Perhaps the Covid-19 pandemic enables people to grasp the lesson of Qorakh more clearly. Consider the perspective of Benei Yisraeil in the era of Qorakh (cBCE 1543), how they would have viewed, and described, events. First, this was more than a millennium before the Pharisees split off as a sect and conceived the first rabbi…

Exiting Democracies’ Gridlocks

Current mechanisms of Western-style Democracies, particularly the U.S. and Israel, continue to cause their populations to gravitate to a repeating loop of polarization that pits one half of a country against the other half. While the tripartite governmental system in the U.S. (legislative, judicial & executive) is working through the impasse, the bipartite Israeli system…

Democrat Pres. Candidates On Border Issue Abet Slavery, Drugs & Child Sex Traffickers

For decades, I’ve been searching for someone who is a true expert on the Child sex trafficking industry. Police vice officers deal principally with jailing prostitutes and, occasionally if they’re lucky, a pimp. The cartel operating the industry generally rolls right along with impunity. Almost no one knows how to protect children from being sucked…

Beyond “Friedman Station”

Matti Friedman sees Israel with greater clarity than other analysts. Friedman is right—as far as he sees. Yet, he, too, is myopic. To be sure, without going through “Friedman Station” on the “learning curve” toward clarifying today’s Israeli reality, without focusing inside the frame of the Middle East, one sees Israel—and Tanakh—only through the distortion…

Real Zombies Are Victims Of Plastic-Ingestion, Not Drug-Induced Coma

Gender-Challenged “Snowflakes”, Mushrooms: Humanzees Irony: Ingested Plastic Negates Plasticity Of Brain Ynet just published an article declaring that practically each person in the civilized world is ingesting, mostly in their drinking water (and shellfish, for those who don’t eat kâ•sheirꞋ), about 7 grams (not nanograms; like eating a ground-up plastic credit card) of plastic particles…

American Jewry’s & Israelis’ Misconception Of “The American View”

Response to Prof. Abraham Ben-Tzvi in Israel ha-Yom (2019.05.03). Most of what Prof. Ben-Tzvi writes here is accurate and well-reasoned. However, his “backdrop” view of “Americans’ perceptions” of Israel, upon which he depends as a premise to inform his subsequent reasoning, is wildly skewed by his own, Jewish, misperception of mainstream Americans’ view of Israel(is)–which…

Israel’s Nation-State Law—The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

The Good The modern state of Israel was conceived in answer to the socialist (Nazi) Shoah after WW-II, as a refuge-home for Jews globally; security against future threats of annihilation of Jews. Thus, the Nation-State Law, formally and officially defining Israel as such, is good. The archeological evidence found throughout Israel pre-dates Islam, Christianity—and Jews!…
