JEWS OF AMERICA - RISE UP!

How dare a Nazi maniac burst into a synagogue and massacre elderly worshipers - with no one lifting a finger to protect them!

How dare American Jews do nothing to prevent it ever happening again, aside from possibly hiring outside, non-Jewish guards. Or to focus on hollow words of condemnation and verbosity, as I heard from Tom Friedman, David Frumm, and Jonathan Greenblatt on Farad Zakaria's show on CNN. They focused on the sorry state of American today under President Trump's leadership. Even if they may be right, so what? Now is the time not for words but for action, within the bounds of American law.

COURAGEOUS ISRAELI MOTHER PREVENTS DISASTROUS WAR BETWEEN ISRAEL & GAZA

A split second was all that averted a new all-out war between Israel and the Palestinians in Gaza. At about 3:00 in the morning of October 17, Palestinians in Gaza launched two long-range missiles at Israel. One of them was on target for the Israeli city of Beersheba miles away to the east. The IDF's anti-missile defense failed to intercept it but the sirens blared throughout Beersheba. This is how the Israeli mother, from Ethiopia, of three small boys, described what happened: "I was sound asleep in my bedroom on the first floor (her husband was at work on the night shift). When I first hear the wail of sirens I thought I was dreaming, but I woke up immediately and raced upstairs to where my three boys were sleeping. I grabbed them out of their beds and pushed them half asleep downstairs to our 'mammad' (a reinforced safety room for shelter from missile attacks). I shoved them inside and then slammed the door. Immediately, we didn't even have time to sit down, a huge explosion rocked the whole building. One of my boys yelled: "Imma (mother), it hit our house!"

NETANYAHU & PUTIN TO HOLD URGENT MEETING TO RESOLVE SYRIAN CRISIS

First, some necessary background information: on July 30, 1970, Israeli and Soviet pilots clashed over the Suez Canal Zone. In the brief three-minute dogfight the Israelis shot down five Russian Mig-21 without losing a single plan. It was at the height of the Cold War between the Soviet Union and the US in the Middle East. Moscow was backing Cairo to the hilt not only with advanced weapons but also with military advisors. However, Russian experts got fed up with Israel's air superiority in Egyptian skies. So Soviet pilots started flying Egyptian Migs to take on the Israelis with the goal of showing "how it was done". But all that we nearly five decades ago.
