R.P. BenDedek Author Contributions At Magic City July to December 2014
Last year (Nov '13 to June '14) we received 124 contributions from book authors. Since July of this year we have received another 58. By July 1st this year we had featured over 400 new book releases and since that date we have added another 300 more thanks to additional books baskets like the Christian Book Basket and the Children's Book Basket. I have been very honored to have been involved with the publicists and authors involved and I hope that our readership has enjoyed the bonus reading, and I hope that this work will continue after I cease to be the Editor on December 31st.

International The Shamrak Report Taking Back Our Inheritance
Thousands of Jewish Israelis were expelled from their homes during the 2005 Disengagement - but soon, some of them may have a chance to return. MKs Ze'ev Elkin (Likud) and Orit Struk (Jewish Home) have drafted a bill to restore Homesh and Sa-Nur to its former Jewish residents, Walla! News reports on Wednesday night, as well as to "eliminate the rights" of those who have invaded the communities since then. The foundation of the bill is based on the fact that both Homesh and Sa-Nur are in the area of Judea-Samaria under full control of the State of Israel.

Kenneth Tellis Imperatif Francais, what a croc as a name for a Franco-Amerindian organization
When it comes to common sense, one finds that the Franco-Amerindians in their mad rush to avoid bringing up their Native American roots choose what they think will distance themselves from their half-brothers the Native Americans and put them closer to their French half-brothers. But, that doesn't happen as people see through their devious plan, and their Native American background rears itself and exposes their true hybrid stock

Kenneth Tellis Kebek shuts down English only Websites U.S. Stores Blocked
Kebek is violation of the spirit and intent of the NAFTA agreement. Latest Sites shut down are William-Sonoma, West Elm, Pottery Barn and Pottery Barn Kids, a San Francisco based Company on October 22, 2014. Apparently they have been warned that it is illegal to operate in Kebek in any other language but Joual (French patois), as they could fined heavily for violating Kebek's language laws.

International The Shamrak Report : Anti-Israel Rhetoric
The sheikh added: "The Palestinians are the killers of children, the elderly and women. They attack the Jews and then they use those (children, the elderly and women) as human shields and hide behind them, without mercy for their children as if they weren't their own children, in order to tell the public opinion that the Jews intended to kill them. This is exactly what I saw with my own two eyes in the 70's, when they attacked the Jordanian army, which sheltered and protected them. Instead of thanking it (the Jordanian army), they brought their children forward to (face) the Jordanian army, in order to make the world believe that the army kills their children. This is their habit and custom, their viciousness, their having hearts of stones towards their children, and their lying to public opinion, in order to get its support"...

International The Shamrak Report: Simple truths about international anti-Semitism
Simple truths about international anti-Semitism... The US State dept asked for an investigation into death of a 17 year old American Muslim Terrorist in Palestine but didn't care about the murdered American Jewish baby in Israel.... Almost 5,000 people have been killed by Ebola. Only $365 million has been committed by the international community but $5.4 billion has been pledged to help rebuild the Gaza Strip. Simple truths about international anti-Semitism which is behind the worldwide support, by Muslim and 'Christian' ruled countries, for the enemies of Jewish state!

R.P. BenDedek Chapters as Published: Finding Myself in China
As I will cease to be Editor of Magic City on December 31st 2014 and since at this stage I do not know if I will continue my association with Magic City, I have removed most of the text on the Chapter pages, leaving only 'excerpts' from those chapters. However it must be pointed out that all chapters have undergone a lot of revision and what appears at Magic City may be a little different from the final draft.

R.P. BenDedek Undoing the American Revolution
How the founders must be turning over in their graves at how easily the American people are being conned out of their democratic republic and conned into a Marxist Totalitarian State -- all in the name of Political Correctness, which by any other name is just 'cultural marxism.'

International The Shamrak Report The Sheer Hypocrisy
A three-month-old baby was killed and eight people injured when a car, driven by known terrorist - 21 year-old Abdur Rahman Slodi, slammed into pedestrians at a Jerusalem light railway stop. "We can confirm that this was a terrorist attack. The driver is a resident of Silwan and has a terrorist background. He has served time in jail for terror activity," said police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld. A Hamas spokesman openly welcomed news of a terror attack in Jerusalem. US Consulate called it a 'traffic incident.' ... Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon was denied meetings with top American officials during his visit to the United States this week.

International The Shamrak Report: Fake Truth for People Who Fake God
Naftali Bennett fired back at US Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday, after the latter claimed Israel 's failures to forge a peace deal with the intransigent PA - not the US's failures in the Middle East - are to blame for the rise of Islamic State (ISIS). "Even when a British Muslim beheads a British Christian, there will always be those who blame the Jews," Bennett stated. "We don't justify terror; we fight terror," he added. "The Israeli-Palestinian conflict statement encourages ISIS, and is a boost to terrorism worldwide." "I suggest they listen to and believe ISIS," he said. "These terrorists want to take over the Middle East, from Syria to Jordan and Lebanon, and to re-establish the Islamic caliphate." "We could either fight it or explain it away," he continued. "The choice is in the world's hands, and it will bear the consequences."

Kenneth Tellis Harper turning Canada into a rogue state?
As far as I can see, the Harper Conservative government of Canada has not made the national debt as big as two Prime Ministers of Canada that held office, one from 1968 -- 1984 and the other that followed him. Both were spendthrifts and did not give a damn where the money came from, because they just raised taxes to keep up with their expenses. If that is good government, I do not know what isn't!

Kenneth Tellis Mind Games of corrupt politicians in Canada
Being a lawyer, he studied the ins and outs of everyday situations, so that when he met with his Franco- Ameridian CABAL on November 22, 1963 along with Jean Marchand and Rene Levesque at the home of one of the conspirators Gerard Pelletier on Elm Street, Westmount, Kebek, they had all boned up on what was to be the agenda. But, there was something odd about this meeting, no English-speaking person was present. This was the clue that something was amiss from the very start.

International The Shamrak Report: Western Hypocrisy
The US State Department has chosen to act as UNRWA's patron and the protector of its mission. UNRWA, the United Nations agency that manages the Palestinian refugee issue, follows rules that contradict United States law and policy, and its practices result in perpetuating and multiplying the refugee problem rather than resolving it.

Kenneth Tellis The double Standards at work in the federal governments in Ottawa
Can one imagine what the costs were for a Limousine to drive this commissioner from his home in Montreal to his office in Ottawa and back daily? Could he not have been housed in Ottawa and have gone home on the weekends for at a much lesser cost? Well, it seems to Liberal elites like this commissioner that money was of no consequence, and damned be the Canadian taxpayers.

Columbus came not as an explorer but an exploiter and made both the church and his patrons Isabella and Ferdinand the richest monarchs in all of Europe. The theory of Christianizing the Native Peoples was a cover up for their exploitation.

International The Shamrak Report America Hypocritical and in the Dark as Usual
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. "I do not understand the criticism," he said. "Arabs in Jerusalem buy apartments and no one bothers them. By the same token, I'm not going to tell Jews not to buy in Jerusalem, including in Silwan. We cannot have discrimination; this approach is unacceptable to me."

International The Shamrak Report Jews are Bad Neighbors but Good Bosses
The PA paper, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, has published an article reviewing the difference between Jewish and Arab employers as reported by local Arab workers. Overwhelmingly the article found that Arab employers take advantage of their workers, while Jewish employers display solid work ethics towards their Arab employees. In fact, the only time when an Arab employee of a Jewish business owner does get swindled is when there is an Arab middleman

International The Shamrak Report The UN Hates Israel the Safe Haven
Martin Indyk, the man who ran John Kerry's Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, whose failure in turn set off this summer's bloody Gaza War, cashed a $14.8 million check from Qatar, a country which is currently Hamas' chief financial backer - which means that while Qatar isn't itself launching missiles on Israeli towns, Hamas wouldn't be able to do so without Qatari cash.

Kenneth Tellis How I beat the Franco-Amerindian separatist by psychology
All those in Canada who had been fighting the separatists before me opted out because they never had the stamina or the know-how to defeat the Separatists. I on the other hand, spent hours trying to develop historical data and makes holes in all their pseudo French victories that never happened, except in the history written by the likes of Alonie de Liestres, the pseudonym of the Anglophobe priest Abbe Lionel-Adophe Groulx of Vaudreuil, Kebek. He was as phony as Joseph Goebbels Nazi German Propaganda Minister. I was able to prove that all his stories were only fairy tales that he had made up over time as a Roman Catholic priest in Kebek.

International Obama's self-defeating fight
Islamic State is a challenging foe. To defeat it, the US must be willing to confront Islamism. And it must be willing to fight to win. In the absence of such determination, it will fight and lose, in the region and at home, with no allies at its side.

International The Shamrak Report: United Nations Palestinian Farce
The UN is concerned about the so-called Palestinian refugees. They dedicated a separate agency for them, and they are treated with a special privilege. Meanwhile, my people, ethnically cleansed, murdered and enslaved, are relatively ignored. The UN refuses to tell the world the truth about the real causes of Sudan's conflicts. Who knows really what is happening in Darfur? It is not a "tribal conflict."...

For quite a while now the Harper regime in Ottawa has avoided telling Canadians of how Canada came into being after the Conquest of New France on September 12, 1760, when French Gouverneur Vaudreuil accepted the terms of the surrender of the territory of New France to Great Britain, as dictated by Major-General Jeffrey Amherst of the British Army at Montreal, New France.

International 21st anniversary of Oslo highlights the tragic Real Middle East
The 21st anniversary of Oslo highlights the tragic gap between the underlying assumption of the architects of Oslo – the New Middle East, transitioning to peace - and the Real Middle East. The Real Middle East is represented, most authentically, by the Arab Tsunami, which is gaining momentum, not transitioning toward democracy, in defiance of policy-makers, columnists and academicians who defined it as the Arab Spring.

International Here (Givat Oz veGaon) we are Building Tourism
It's hard to miss the tourist sign leading to Givat Oz veGaon, if only because of the picture of the three kidnapped youths that it bears and that causes a twinge in your heart. As soon as you leave your car, the smell of a Bnei Akiva camp fills the air, the smell of youth, summer, and everything that was taken from those three, as if it comes to compensate those who remain here.
