The Shamrak Report Supporting Terrorists - Libelling Jews
Jewish people, community leaders and the political hierarchy of Israel must remember that nobody respects those who have no self-respect! Enemies of the Jewish people have given us many derogatory and demonizing names in order to rob us of our true spiritual names: "Israel" - "Triumphant with God" , and "Evrim" - "one who have crossed over."

American Universities turn blind eye to female abuse
The ideology is always the same - 'Righteous and Just treatment of all.' But as we can see by the two articles listed above concerning the Islamic influence in American Universities, those of whom we ought to expect the most righteous and just behavior, eventually find that their 'precious ideology' comes with a price -- hypocritical subservience to political power. The Chinese got rid of political correctness and other subservient ideologies and it is high time the west did too. Politically Correct Ideology is the most perverted hypocritical ideology to be spawned in the democratic environment. It teaches people to believe what they are told, and then controls them to do the will of those who lead them, and ultimately steals from them the very righteousness, justice and liberty to which the ideology first appealed.

Israel's Worst Enemy: Lies and Myths
The Washington Post reports that some members of Secretary of State John Kerry's senior staff think it's time to say "enough" of Kerry's futile and delusional attempts to broker peace between the Israelis and Arabs and implement the "two-state solution." That's a revelation one would think the chief diplomat of the greatest power in history would have experienced decades ago. Since the failed 1993 Oslo Accords, it has been obvious to all except the duplicitous, the ignorant, and the Jew-hater that the Arabs do not want a "Palestinian state living in peace side-by-side with Israel," something they could have had many times in the past. On the contrary, as they serially prove in word and deed, they want Israel destroyed.

The Shamrak Report: World Full of Hypocrites
The EU has been intensively building a fence to prevent entry of Arab/Muslim immigrants from Turkey. But, international media and Jew-hating liberals have not expressed their 'outrage', unlike when Israel had been building its anti-terror fence around Arab enclaves to prevent endless suicide bombings. They were also quiet when Egypt destroyed over 1000s of Hamas' 'trade' tunnels, many buildings at the border with Gaza and closed the Gaza border for 50 days.

Israel's Window of opportunity
The entire world is opening its eyes and sees the deception that lies behind Palestinian policy and with a suitable Israel advocacy effort, we can prove to the world the futility of continuing a discussion with a Palestinian partner who deceitfully speaks of peace but sows terror.

Email Fictions, Half-Truths and Reality
I personally believe that if an ideological 'just cause' is truly just then it does not need to be promoted by lies, deception and half-truths.... I know that ancient cultures look down on the more recent countries and their modern cultures. I know that ancient peoples are deeply proud of their country and culture. I know that what such ancient peoples say and present before foreigners (new comers to the world stage) is what they know the upstarts want to hear. And today, all the modern youthful immature western new comers want to hear is regurgitation of political correctness ideology.

The Shamrak Report: Even Jesus would be barred.
Jews are prohibited from praying at the Western Wall of the Temple Mount. The PA claims that the area of the Muslim holy site, the Al-Aqsa Mosque, includes not only the mosque itself, but extends over the entire Temple Mount and includes the Judaism's holiest site - the Western Wall.

Death to American Freedom of Association, Thought and Speech
McCarthyism is the practice of making accusations of disloyalty, subversion, or treason without proper regard for evidence. It also means "the practice of making unfair allegations or using unfair investigative techniques, especially in order to restrict dissent or political criticism. Our Western societies are full of 'ideologues' using every means at their disposal to force their ideological principles onto people who ought to have the right to reject those ideas and ideals. But with each new day leading us into our future, we are being lead deeper and deeper into an ideology of 'submission to the powers that be.

Returning to Shenzhen Ten Years On: Spring Festival 2014
On January 16th, two other of Zhan Yan's friends and former classmates arrived for a short stay. One of them had just arrived from Australia. He is currently at university in Sydney (I think) but prior to that he completed high school in Brisbane at Mitchelton State High. This high school is not far from where I grew up. On January 17th, Zhan Yan, Honney, Kira, his girlfriend Angel and I went to the beach for the afternoon. It was a pleasant 20 degrees. We mucked around on the beach, took photographs of each other, went for a walk, generally had fun and got to watch a lot of crazy brides and grooms posing for their wedding photographs.

The Shamrak Report: The Poor Millionaires of Gaza
Mutual hate between Fatah and Hamas reveals the truth about 'poor Palestinians.' The Fatah spokesman claimed that while Gaza is one of the poorest places in the world, there are 1,700 millionaires among Hamas members, hinting that the terror group imposes steep taxes on its citizens for goods entering from Egypt and Israel.....A 24-year-old Egyptian has been arrested by authorities for allegedly committing the crime of "loving Israel" after he was spotted with a tattoo of the Star of David on his arm. (Oh how we CLAIM to love the truth!)

The worst alternative
The only way for Israel to defend itself competently in the international arena is for its default position to rest on Israel's historic and legal rights to the areas - that is, to stop accepting that these areas, to which Israel has a stronger legal claim that the Palestinians, belong to the Palestinians and begin asserting Israel's positive case for sovereignty.

The Shamrak Report: The Games that Amnesty International plays
Amnesty International released a report and entitled Trigger-happy: Israel's Use of Excessive Force in the West Bank, documenting the killing of 45 Palestinians over the past three years... but .... Figures show that the number of women killed by relatives, over "family honor," in PA controlled territories has doubled within a year, to 26 in 2013. PA penal code in 2011 gives light punishment to men who kill female relatives. Is this barbarity condemned by the Amnesty International report?... Egyptian newspaper Alyoum Alsaba has reported that Egyptian security forces intend to take away the citizen status of 13,757 Palestinians because of their support for Hamas.

"Today, it's already impossible to distinguish between anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism. Modern anti-Semites have turned 'the Jewish problem' into 'the Israeli problem.' They have redirected the 'final solution' from the Jews to the State of Israel..." - Prof. Monika Schwarz-Friesel, Technical University of Berlin.

When the mask of anonymity falls off the truth is finally revealed
And even today the threat to Canada is very real, because every political party has been infiltrated by these Kebekois agents' provocateurs that have been very busy undermining Canada and convincing naive English-speaking Canadians that they are working for Canadian unity, when nothing could be further from the truth. But going even further back there was collusion between the Kebekois CABAL who were the prime movers and controlled all the operations that were carried out by the Terrorist Group that called itself the "le front the liberation du Kebekois" and they used violence and murder to promote their political aims.

The Worthy Immigrant and citizen
These early Immigrant took a gamble, but by their contribution and selfless dedication to their new lands made possible the America that one sees today as a success. They did come as Immigrants to take but to give their all to the land of their adoption. But is a far cry from the Immigrants of today that come expecting to receive all the benefits of the new country, rather than to make a contribution to it.

Israel's Big Mistake
No similar program has ever been seriously considered for other parts of the Old City, mainly populated since the 1950s by low-income Arab families living in cramped and dilapidated quarters. One might think there would be broad support for an initiative to rejuvenate the Old City as a whole, uncovering the archaeological riches lying underneath and bringing the entire walled area up to 21st-century standards. Yet the Palestinian leadership unfailingly objects to any such proposals. Whatever the area's Arab residents may wish for in terms of an improved quality of life, the ethic of "resistance"--fueled as ever by foreign money funneled through Palestinian Authority enforcers--assures that these families stay where they are.

The Shamrak Report: Only One-sided News
PA security forces have been conducting frequent raids of 'refugee camps' and clashing with gunmen and rioting youths, as the PA tries to establish security among its increasingly restless and volatile populace. Riot police wielded truncheons and fired into the air late last month to disperse dozens of rampaging youths who had blocked Ramallah streets and forced store owners to shut their doors... They said the multi-billion-dollar security barrier along the West Bank has not hampered Palestinians from illegal residence in the Jewish state. "Every day, more and more young Palestinians cross into Israel without any trouble and find apartments and jobs without any difficulty," an official said

The Truth Behind the Palestinian Water Libels
The international community has offered to build a desalination plant for the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. The Palestinians have refused this gift. A desalination plant could completely solve the Gaza Strip's water shortages. The Palestinians refuse to build this plant because they claim they have the right to access the fresh groundwater reservoir in Judea and Samaria, and they are prepared to suffer until they realize this dream. In the meanwhile, Gaza residents suffer from severe shortages of water. If the Palestinians were to begin drilling the Eastern Mountain Aquifer, at the sites already approved for drilling, they very quickly would secure an additional 50 million cubic meters of water per year.

Letter to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
In a discussion on the expulsion from Gush Katif and northern Samaria that was held in Ariel a few days ago, public relations expert Eyal Arad claimed that the Right failed because it did not present an alternative. This is not true. There is an alternative! A realistic, Zionist plan does exist - application of Israeli sovereignty. This plan is indeed accompanied by difficulties, but the difficulties associated with sovereignty are preferable to the physical and spiritual destruction entailed in the establishment of a terrorist Palestinian state in the heart of our Land, a stone-throw away from Ben Gurion Airport.

BenDedek Book Review: "My Country and My People" by Lin Yutang
Having spent the last few years writing an account of my life in China and being near the final page, I have wondered if some of the statements I have made about China and the West were merely personal perspective for which I might later be reprimanded. Having now read "My Country and My People" I know that I have truly understood the culture of China and its people. Mr. Lin relates that Chinese have 'feminine emotional' thinking as opposed to 'masculine rational' thinking (p 249) and says that while they are well mannered to family, friends and acquaintances, "beyond that limit the Chinese as a social being is positively hostile toward his neighbor." He points out that the Chinese have a genius for contentment as well as a shrewd view of life derived from an old, mature, grown-up culture rather than the rash idealism to be found in self-important, young and foolish western cultures.

Chapters as Published: Finding Myself in China
What currently appears at Magic City is just the first revision. It contains lots of over-capitalizations, incorrect uses of commas in relation to inverted commas, typing errors and incorrect grammar. Some original material was deleted and some was relocated. Some anecdotes have been shortened and others lengthened. Revision and correction is ongoing but it is not my plan to further update the material or provide additional chapters. In order to provide the material which is currently in place at Magic City, it has been necessary to forego including photographs and links that appeared in the original version.

The Shamrak Report: Not Racist! We Just Hate Jews!
A week ago, Egyptian border forces destroyed 10 tunnels and seven homes in the Sinai as part of new campaign to create a buffer zone along the border with the Gaza Strip that would extend 500 meters in some places. Israel needs to do the same - create a buffer zone, clear North Gaza from the enemies, to prevent rocket attacks.

How Civilizations Die
One day, a traveler from across the great ocean wandered into the land. Each time he approached the Skinhead people, they were openly hostile to him. They told him that if he wished to rest or stay with them, then he must shave his head and abide by all their laws. When he wouldn't agree to these terms, they threatened his life and chased him away.

Thinly camouflaged anti-Semitism. That is the learned opinion of James Woolsey, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency. Woolsey has said so in interviews to Channel 10, as well as to The Jerusalem Post. He went on the record and without beating around the bush. He thus gave an authoritative voice to what many suspected and hinted at for years.

The IHRC definition of Islamophobic is, in my humble opinion, ideological B.S. Don't talk to me about Islamophobia! Let me talk to you about 'freespeechophobia'; the absolute meltdown that some people have when they hear someone say something that has not been approved of by the political censors. The Wikipedia list of phobias does not include 'Islamophobia' and the word itself does not appear in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary.

A captured member of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant claims that the ISIL and other Islamic militant groups in Syria are led by Prince Adbul Rahman al-Faisal, the son of the late King Faisal of Saudi Arabia and the brother of the current Saudi Foreign Minister, Prince Saud al-Faisal... Egyptian security forces have been monitoring Malik Obama's activities. Malik is managing funds for both the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the Islamic Dawa Organization in Sudan, which has been designated by the US State Department as a terrorist state....A senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood - Anas Altikriti, a top British lobbyist, whose work has also been tied to Hamas - was recently hosted at the White House for a meeting with President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, prompting an outcry from critics of the global Islamist organization.
