MSNBC (www.msnbc.com) reports that a racist bastard of Moroccan origin tried to blow up a synagogue in Belgium, but luckily the police stopped him in time:
BRUSSELS, June 13 — Belgian police arrested a man suspected of trying to blow up a synagogue on Friday in what could be the latest in a string of anti-Jewish attacks across Europe [...]

I have just sent an email to a friend from Finland, Max, describing why I think the European left is not being honest when it says it supports Democracy, or Women and Gay rights.
My main point is that if you are an European leftist (not necessarily communist), you are automatically against Israel. You don’t care about the historical context, the almost daily Palestinian homicide/suicide bombers, the Palestinians refusal of peace and of Israel’s right to exist, etc…
Now that I think of it, this was also typical of European communists who didn’t care about the atrocities committed by the USSR and always gave the Russian communists their unconditional support.
The European left does not care about women, independent judiciaries, minorities, democracy, gays or almost anything else it supposedly supports. That is why the left opposed America's war in Afghanistan, which liberated women from being treated like animals.

The Washington Post (www.washingtonpost.com) has an incredible story on Wladyslaw Bartoszewski, ex-Foreign Minister of Poland, who helped save 4,000 Jews during the Holocaust, including 2,500 children:
Wladyslaw Bartoszewski has seen it all.
Many people in Poland hate Jews with a passion (see this example) - Mr. Bartoszewski is an inspiration to humanity.

The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that a Palestinian homicide bomber has murdered 3 more Israelis:
In the fifth suicide bombing against Israelis in two days, a suicide bomber blew up at the main entrance to the Shaarei Amakim mall in Afula at about 5:15 p.m. Monday evening, killing three Israelis and wounding 50.
While the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Hamas, and Arafat's Al-Aksa brigades continue their murderous campaign of homicide bombings targetting Israeli women and children, the United Nations were discussing the "roadmap for peace".
It is clear there is no wish for peace on the Palestinian side. There is only hatred, racism, and the execution of homicide bombings in the name of Islam. The "moderate" Palestinians do nothing to stop their racist and fanatic groups from continuing their killing, so the Israeli army has to step in.
A Palestinian State and peace are very far away.
TwinCities.com reports that racist bastards have burned down a Jewish center in Paris, France:
Fire swept through a Jewish community center in eastern Paris early Sunday after arsonists broke into the building and scrawled swastikas and anti-Semitic slogans inside.
Although the freaks that burned down the center painted Neo-Nazi swastikas, Voice of America (www.voanews.com) reports that an Islamic group proudly claimed responsibility for the racist attack:
French authorities are studying a claim of responsibility by a previously unknown Islamic group for a fire Sunday that destroyed a Jewish community center in Paris.
Between Nazi bastards, Islamic fascists and European leftists, Israel and Jews across Diaspora countries have a lot of enemies.
Luckily today we have the State of Israel - a place where Jews can find refuge, and a country that has institutions and an army dedicated to the defense of such persecuted folks.
I copy both articles below.
I just read an article on the Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) that goes over an interview with Dennis Ross, who was one of the main mediators between Israel and the Palestinians under former U.S. presidents George Bush and Bill Clinton.
"Arafat didn't offer anything but slogans during this period. He never indicated that he would even make a decision," said Ross.
"The only thing he did say was that the Second Temple, destroyed by the Romans almost 2000 years ago, never existed in Jerusalem as the Jews believe. He said it was located somewhere in Nablus", Ross said.

The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that a Palestinian terrorist infiltrated a kibbutz (an Israeli collective farm), and fired at women and children deliberately murdering 5 people:
Two children, ages four and five, two women and a young man were shot and killed in the attack. Among the victims was Tirza Damari, 42, from the community of Elichin. She was at Kibbutz Metzer visiting friends.
I heard on Israeli radio that the Al-Aksa brigades, which directly reports to Yasser Arafat, has proudly claimed responsibility for the murders. For more information on how Arafat plays a double game of condemning "all attacks against civilians" while at the same time sending in his hordes of murderous bastards to kill women and children, see the Palestine page.
For more information on kibbutz Metzer check out www.metzer.org.il (in Hebrew). I copy the full article below.
"Faces of the Victims" just posted the story of Eliezer Korman, 74. He became the 30th victim of a Palestinian homicide/suicide terrorist attack in Netanya on 3/27/2002.
Eliezer Korman, 74
The Palestinian murderer walked into a Hotel in the Israeli coastal town of Netanya, while over 250 people were celebrating the Jewish holiday of Passover.
Last year, while the U.S. was fighting the Taliban and Al-Qeda in Afghanistan, I remember discussions about stopping the military actions to respect the Muslim holiday of Ramadan.
Not only the Islamic Jihad, the Hamas and other Palestinian terrorist groups did not stop killing during this Jewish holiday, but they deliberately murdered children and the elderly, whose only fault was that they were preparing to celebrate Passover.
Mr. Korman is survived by his wife, Yehudit, two children and five grandchildren. For the full article see below.
Jacob R. was yesterday at the Jerusalem Arts and Crafts Fair and he took 132 pictures - for those that won't be visiting Jerusalem this week, you can check it out online thanks to Jacob.
One of the many attractions at
the Jerusalem Arts and Crafts Fair
Over the past weeks, the downtown area of Jerusalem has been filled with people enjoying many outdoor shows and fairs. It is wonderful to see the center of Jerusalem returning to a festive atmosphere.
It is good to realize sometimes that life does go on in Israel without Palestinian murderers disrupting it. Make sure you check out the pictures, they are great.
A new grassroots campaign has started to help Palestinians from the Islamic Jihad and Hamas:
Razor Blade Campaign Aims to Cut Suicide Bombings
Thanks to Scrappleface for starting this touching campaign. Note: this is a joke - there is no real campaign to give razor blades to the mass murderers of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
I received a satirical comic strip from a good friend that describes how Israel is never allowed to defend herself -
The satire was originally published in the Nebelspalter (a newspaper from Switzerland, http://www.nebelspalter.ch/) in 1956, over 50 years ago. This was the year of the "Suez Canal War" (see the history page for more details) and I believe the Israeli man depicted in the cartoon is David Ben-Gurion, considered to be Israel's "founding father".
When you see how many in Europe and in the United Nations have ganged up on Israel during her latest war on Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, it's easy to see how nothing has changed. See below for the detailed satirical comic strip.
I was listening a few minutes ago to an event where President Bush answered questions from Americans living in Nashua, New Hampshire. One of the topics that came up was the Israeli war on Palestinian Terrorism. President Bush said:
"A trouble spot in the Middle East is obviously the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. We're strong supporters of Israel. Israel is our ally. And I believe the best way -- (applause.) "
The applause came after the great American folks present at the event heard the phrase "We're strong supporters of Israel. Israel is our ally." But as in any event, you will find racist bastards, Nazis, or intolerant Muslims spitting up their bile. One such woman then asked the following question:
"Q (Inaudible) [Woman]: How can Ariel Sharon, as you've said, be a man of peace if he causes death and torture among innocent Palestinians every day? How can Ariel Sharon be a man of peace if he fits your definition a terrorist? I'd be curious to hear how you plan to carry out the two-state solution. "
President Bush then replied:
THE PRESIDENT: [...] First of all, Ariel Sharon is defending his country against terrorist attacks, just like we will -- (applause.) [...]
I applaud President Bush for the clarity of his vision. I applaud the American people for the clarity of their vision and their wisdom in getting the best man for the job elected.
It is clear that President Bush was directly talking about Yasser Arafat, the Palestinian excuse for a leader, when he mentioned "a system based upon law and institutions that survive the people, as opposed to a system in which one person pretty well dictates the fate of the Palestinian people."
Standing up to Islamic intolerance, hatred and violence and stopping the mass murdering freaks from Al-Qaeda, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Arafat's Al-Aksa Brigades is not easy. That said, both Israel and America's current leaders have the right approach and attitude towards ending the threat of Islamic Fascism. We will win this war.
I copy the full transcript of the event below.
Yahoo News (www.yahoo.com) reports that the Minister of Police from Saudi Arabia has accused the "Jews" of being behind the heinous attacks of 9/11 against the US:
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - The Saudi police minister has claimed Jews were behind the Sept. 11 attacks because they have benefited from subsequent criticism of Islam and Arabs, according to media reports.
This is not the first time a high ranking Arab/Muslim official has claimed that the J-E-W-S are behind 9/11. In fact, this seems to be a common idea among many Arab Muslims, proving once again how they have become the new Nazis. Click here for an earlier report: "An Antisemitic Myth in the Arab Press: The September 11 Attacks Were Perpetrated by the Jews".

Due to the large amount of spam and viruses that I have been receiving (over 20,000 messages last week!) I am forced to change the way I process incoming email.
From now on if you'd like to contact me please send a message to:
Only messages sent to the above address will be read - if you send a message to any other address it will probably be ignored and deleted with the thousands of other emails received.
I apologize for the inconvenience, but I was spending hours going through thousands of spam messages or viruses that had nothing to do with facts, Israel or the war on Palestinian terrorism.
Send a message to the above address and if it’s not a death threat or a "fatwa" (an Islamic religious edict, which sometimes contains death threats), I will respond.
The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) has reported that Israel's parliament, the "Knesset", has decided to remove the nation's troops and settlements from some Palestinian areas, including the Gaza strip and the northern West Bank:
Israel's Knesset voted Tuesday night to approve Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's plan to unilaterally disengage from the Gaza Strip and northern West Bank.
Yasser Arafat, the Palestinian excuse for a leader, has rejected peace with Israel and turned to the deliberate murder of women and children in October 2000 (click here for details). The Palestinians have rejected a state of their own twice, once in 1948 and once in 2000, click here for more details.
The disengagement plan from the mass murdering bastards from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas is not a result of peace between Israelis and Palestinians, but is a unilateral decision made by Israel which is properly executing what it thinks is best.
On the one hand, many Palestinians have made it clear that their only goal is to destroy Israel and murder every Israeli man, women and child; it would make therefore sense to fight the Palestinian mass murderers where it hurts them most: in their cities and towns. On the other hand, deploying Israeli troops in the Palestinian areas costs us lives, money and is a huge effort on reserve soldiers.
Since Israel is a Western Democracy (click here for details), the plan to remove the troops from the Palestinian areas will have to pass a national referendum, where every Israeli, including one million Israeli Arab Muslims, will have the right to vote.
