1929 Hebron Massacres

This Week in History: The 1929 Hebron Massacre:
Spurred by rumors of an impending takeover of Al-Aksa Mosque, a mob slaughtered 63 Jews while over 400 were saved by local Arab families.
Reminder: The Hebron massacres happenned decades before any "occupation" or "settlements" or "right of return". What were they so angry about?

Boycott Durban III

No support in Berlin for United Nations event because "our partner Israel is denounced as an apartheid state."

Reminders for why we didn't like Durban I:

It turned into an Israel hate-fest, where ridiculous comparisons were made between Israel's defensive measures against terrorists and Apartheid. (I will repeat again and again: Israel has nothing in common with Apartheid South Africa)

Then there was Durban II:

Many countries boycotted it, and others left the auditorium when notorious Israel bashers and Holocaust deniers were given a pulpit.

Durban II is the place where Ahmadinejad was given an audience to speak to, while Holocaust survivor and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Elie Wiesel was verbally harassed with "Zion-nazi" slurs.

Highlight of the conference: The clowns from the UEJF making a point during Mad Moody's speech.

Now, there's Durban III coming up in New York, on the 21st of September 2011. Just around the time when the Palestinian Statehood bid will be voted on... Coincidence?

I'm counting on "good" countries to boycott it, and for organizations like StandWithUs and UN Watch to be present, denounce, and make a general mockery of this circus.

Ikea stopping sales of DAIM ?!

Well that's it. It's not enough that Ikea founder kept close ties with Nazis even after WWII, now they're discontinuing DAIM sales.

No more Daim at Ikea?
Never setting foot in an Ikea again.

Egyptians took part in terror attack last week

Three Egyptians took part in terrorist attacks on southern Israel

Does this mean Israel can also lodge a formal complaint against Egypt?
Though I wonder where the complaint is actually lodged. It's not like the UN is very objective when it comes to resolutions about terrorism... Though kudos for UN Ambassador Prosor for lodging a complaint against that.

I doubt it'll help much, after all it goes against the Israel Double Standards the UN is morally obliged to uphold.

More rockets

And the week begins with *great* news. The Iron Dome hasn't intercepted everything, one rocket hit a school in Beer Sheva.

School in Beersheba hit as 'Iron Dome' intercepts 4 Grads

2 rockets apparently landed in Rafah, Egypt. Is that place even populated? Might the world care that Philistine rockets missed their Israeli target and landed in Egypt?

Honey, I'm hooooome

After a very long absence (almost 3 years), I'm back.

Many, many things have happenned in these 3 years. Among other things and in no particular order:

  • Operation Cast Lead
  • Gilad Shalit has been captive for over 5 years
  • 2010 Flotilla incident and issues with Turkey
  • Durban 2
  • The beautiful Natalie Portman won an Oscar and has decided to break my heart by having a baby with someone else
  • The Arab Spring
  • The Israeli Summer (aka The Housing Protests)
  • Dan Gillerman is no longer Israeli ambassador to the UN
  • 2011 no-Flotilla and ensuing Flytilla
  • The Iron Dome
  • Obama's Nobel Peace Prize
  • Financial Crisis
  • Palestinian UN Statehood Bid coming up
All this thrown in with the regular anti-Israel news, fallacies and platitudes. And I am back to vent, discuss, analyse and deplore current events.
