R.P. BenDedek Obama Administration's Irrelevance in the Islamic World
No man/woman should be selected for such a high office based upon an ideology as stupid as Political Correctness. If another leader in another part of the world rises up to lead this world and leads successfully, no one will want a return to the status quo. Obama and his administration can stamp their feet and throw tantrums all they like over not being consulted about this Libyan affair, but when you are an irrelevance, well ....you are irrelevant.

International The Shamrak Report: Western bleeding hearts so easily fooled
In a remarkably candid interview on Lebanese TV, Isra al-Mudallal, the head of foreign relations at Hamas's Information Ministry in Gaza, explained how harassment, interrogations and deportations were used to ensure that journalists reporting from Gaza during Operation Protective Edge stuck to Hamas's official line and did not report "the Israeli narrative".

International Understanding the Israeli-Egyptian-Saudi alliance
The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and its state sponsors Qatar and Turkey, are the key members of this alliance structure. Without their support Hamas would have gone down with the Muslim Brotherhood regime in Egypt last summer. As it stands, all view Hamas's war with Israel as a means of reinstating the Brotherhood to power in that country. To achieve a Hamas victory, Turkey, Qatar and the Muslim Brotherhood are using Western support for Hamas against Israel. If the US and the EU are able to coerce Egypt and Israel to open their borders with Gaza, then the Western powers will hand the jihadist axis a strategic victory.

International Defeating terrorists: From Sri Lanka to Gaza by Michael Freund
It would take a week to take Gaza, and up to two years to destroy terrorist infrastructure. There is, of course, the question of whether such an operation would be worth the cost in casualties, or if Israeli society is prepared for such a scenario, but those are subjective moral and political issues, not military ones. The truth is that there is precedent for the defeat of terrorist organizations through the determined use of military power. Take for example the case of Sri Lanka. That country was forced to endure years of suicide bombings and decades of violence carried out by a terrorist outfit known as the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam.

International The Shamrak Report Jews Make Muslims Look Bad
Human Rights Watch reports that more than 100 Palestinians refugees had been expelled from Jordan. The Islamic State (formerly ISIS) continues its bloody conquest of Iraq and Syria and begins invading Lebanon, all in the name of establishing a global Sunni Muslim caliphate system. An official at the Dutch National Cyber Security Center Yasmina Haifi, wrote, "ISIS has nothing to do with Islam. It is a preconceived plan of Zionists who want to deliberately make Islam look bad."

R.P. BenDedek Jews and Christians Can Go to Hell!
OK so the bleeding hearts hate JEWS! I get it! Dirty Jews! Christ Killers! Filthy Money Lenders! But what about the Christian victims of Muslim violence and terrorism? Do any of the bleeding hearts which cry for the people of Gaza care about the Christian victims of Muslim Violence?

International One-State Solution Is on Israel's Doorstep
When Israel absorbs Judea and Samaria--and it is a when, not an if--the chancelleries of the West will wag their fingers, and the Gulf States will breathe a sigh of relief. The historical homeland of the Jewish people will pass into Israeli sovereignty not because the national-religious will it to be so, or because an Israeli government seeks territorial aggrandizement, but because Israel will be the last man standing in the region, the only state able to govern Judea and Samaria, and the only military force capable of securing its borders. It will happen without fanfare, de facto rather than de jure, at some moment in the not-too-distant future when the foreign ministries of the West are locked in crisis session over Iraq or Syria. And it will happen with the tacit support of Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia.

R.P. BenDedek Homosexuality: a crime against the rights of society and religion
Between the terrorists, the traitors, the hypocrites and the sheer bloody ignorance of the 'self-righteous' sheep, there had better be a Messiah ready to intervene in the history of this world, for without one, we are most certainly headed toward the destruction of everything that makes us human.

International Hamas tunnels under the 'two-state solution'
There is one significant achievement, albeit unintended, that the gangsters of Gaza have to show for themselves: Hamas has put the final nail in the coffin of the so-called two-state solution. Ironically, the subterranean shafts they burrowed underground, and the multiple explosive projectiles they hurled at Israel, have all but toppled any chance that a Palestinian state will ever arise in Judea and Samaria.
Aug 15, 2014 - 12:22:35 AM
This is an interesting video in which some really interesting questions are asked. Questions like: "If you are upset about 1500 killed in Gaza - why have you said nothing about the 170,000 Syrians - including dozens decapitated and the shooting by IS of unarmed Iraqis. Why aren't people protesting about Boko Haram slitting the throats of young boys and capturing young girls."

Kenneth Tellis Unbeknownst to Canadian's, Canada has its very own fifth-columnists
The facts as they stand are quite clear, everything was designed to weaken the country by measures that destroyed its very raison d'etre, which is what gives a nation its strength. The weaknesses of multiculturalism are multifaceted and offer nothing to strengthen a state or country but create divisions that weaken the very soul of that nation.

Kenneth Tellis Why language equality in Canada will never succeed
The man from Cote St. Luc Montreal stood up and pointing a finger at me said that the cause of Canada's language problems were people like me, and not the racist fanatics in Kebec that wanted to remove English altogether. Here was I asking for language equality in Canada being denounced for having the gall to ask for the rights of English-speaking Canada to be upheld...

The video is about Israel's apartheid program. It records how Israel treats Jews, Christians, Muslims - women, children, gays and feminists in Israel and shows indisputably why Israel MUST BE boycotted and deserves to be destroyed.

International Jerusalem Rally a Huge Success
MK Orit Struk, who is a major proponent of sovereignty for Judea and Samaria, looked at the crowd and noted the number of people who had gathered in Jerusalem to participate from around the entire country, and from around the world. She spoke of how an event like this was perceived as a far-fetched, illogical dream up until 70 years ago. "When our grandparents prayed, they could not conceive of this being a reality," she said.

International The Shamrak Report: News that's too disgusting to report
Four children were killed on Saturday, 27 July, in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula when a mortar round hit their home, in an apparent attack by militants targeting soldiers, security officials said....Hamas killed at least 25 Palestinian civilians it suspected of collaborating with Israel. Hamas publicly blamed the killings of the Palestinian suspects on Israel.......Italian reporter Gabriele Barbati, who has now left Gaza and is no longer under direct threat of retaliation by Hamas, is telling the truth about what's going on there. Hamas bombed the Palestinian camp in Shati - not Israel....The idea that one of Hamas's main command bunkers is located beneath Shifa Hospital in Gaza City is one of the worst-kept secrets of the Gaza war. So why aren't reporters in Gaza ferreting it out?
Aug 8, 2014 - 4:27:16 AM
I always find it amazing that the bleeding heart anti-Israel MOB never believe the truth that Hamas and other Jihadis speak yet readily spout the propaganda lies. It really is like my father told me: "People only believe what they want to believe."

International The Shamrak Report: Egypt won't bow to Hamas either
Egyptian President Abdel-Fatteh El-Sisi told them he would not amend his original ceasefire proposal to suit Hamas' demands. More than a military strategy, Hamas has a media strategy. Calculatingly, Hamas employs primitive military tactics to mount a sophisticated media campaign that can threaten Israel's basic security. And in conducting that offensive, Hamas can count on one of the world's most powerful weapons: the international media...Above all, Hamas knows that shocking images - some of them taken from the carnage in Syria and Iraq and even from Hollywood horror movies - inflame public opinion... and the international media is complicit in Hamas's plan.

This chant/mask is Politically Correct language for 'Death to Israel! Death to Jews!' Only those idiots who easily succumb to Politically Correct emotional manipulation do not know this. Who knows what these idiots thought they were saying but in the Palestinian mind and ideology, Palestine will never be free till the pigs are thrown into the sea. You know who the pigs are don't you?

International The Shamrak Report: Hamas Makes No Mistakes
Hamas rocket hit the power line that supplies electricity to seventy thousand Gazans from Khan Younis and Deir el-Balah. It's not clear when Israel Electric Company workers will be able to repair the system. The PA currently owes the Israel Electric Company NIS 1.5 billion ($525 million) in unpaid bills for electricity. The Mukhtar (Islamic religious leader) of the Jerusalem neighborhood of Sur Baher praised Israel for defending the city - and particularly the Al-Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount - from Hamas rockets. Hamadan said that Hamas' seemingly careless firing of missiles endangered Muslim holy places, as well as Arabs, who live and work in all parts of the country.

International The Shamrak Report BBC upset over fake war photos
A 38 year-old man was assaulted in Malmo, Sweden, a week ago - for the sole crime of hanging an Israeli flag in his window. The assailants broke the man's window first, than ten people chased the man from his building, wielding iron pipes. He managed to narrowly escape his attackers and was taken to hospital with serious injuries....The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) published a short report last Tuesday in which it warned that many of the graphic images that are being shared on social media, purporting to show destruction that the IDF is wreaking in Gaza, are not in fact photos from Operation Protective Edge

International Between the Settlers and the Unsettlers, the One-State Solution Is on Our Doorstep
Over time, West Bank Arabs may embrace Israeli citizenship--when it is offered--as firmly as their counterparts inside the Green Line. The so-called apartheid issue is a canard. Israeli Arabs lived under martial law between the end of the War of Independence in 1949 and 1966, and no one spoke of apartheid. Israel's most pressing problem in the near future may be Arab refugees trying to get in...Events have shown that the PA cannot rule without Hamas, and it cannot rule with Hamas; it can neither support nor suppress terrorism on the West Bank. The inability of the Palestine Authority to govern, the inability of Hamas to distance itself from its patron in Tehran, and the collapse of the surrounding states eventually will require Israel to assume control over the West Bank. This time the Israelis will stay.

R.P. BenDedek The 'Google' and 'Microsoft' Idiots
We live in the 21st century where in the morning we are in one country and a few hours later in another. When you travel and stop in three countries within a 24 hour period as I sometimes do, how the hell are you to access the internet or email account without a VPN or without a telephone number or alternate email address, and when you have an alternate address, how can you access anything if they are all saying 'Suspicious Activity?' Frankly, the only suspicious activity that I ever encounter comes from Google. They say that computers are a blessing. Maybe so! BUT VIRTUAL MONOPOLIES ARE NOT!

Kenneth Tellis Why single out Australia over racial discrimination?
Of course, I noted a few days before this was brought out by the BBC, that Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe had disenfranchised people of European dissent in that country, and was confiscating their farms, home and businesses, yet there was no mention of this event on the BBC at all. It struck me as odd that Australia was being the recipient of mudslinging over the actions of one person, yet what happened in Zimbabwe was totally overlooked by the BBC.

Kenneth Tellis Moot of French-speaking countries in Ottawa, why?
While the Commonwealth of Nations has a much bigger membership than La Francophonie, after the era of Trudeau regime IN 1968 and coming of Franco-Amerindians to power in Canada, the Commonwealth of Nations to which Canada had always belonged was given the cold shoulder and treated like a pariah. But, the Canadian governments elected after the Trudeau Regime were really no different and continued to treat the Commonwealth with contempt to till the present time, and the Harper Regime still continues the policy.

International Nadia Matar: Proclaiming Sovereignty With Might, Genius, And Not A Little Sechel
I had attended the rally at Rabin Square in Tel Aviv so filled with life and hope and then so shortly after stood in the hot sun for hours, body to body with my brothers and sisters at the funeral of our dear martyrs. It was only fitting then, that I capped off my week with a visit to Givat Oz V'Gaon, a hilltop outpost, its name containing an acronym for Gilad, Eyal, and Naftali (HY"D).

International The Shamrak Report: Blame the Jews and you can't go wrong
For almost 50 years Israel has been blamed for all the problems and instability of the Middle East . With the success of ISIS in Syria and Iraq the true reasons behind the conflict are exposed. There is a long standing deep-seated hatred, based on theological differences, between Shiites and Sunnis. It is behind a religious war currently waged by proxies.
