A former Mossad senior official says Jewish Americans are central to US support for Israel and that alienating this population (as Netanyahu is doing) poses an “existential” threat to Israel. The Israel lobby would “lose its clout,” and it would diminish support from other countries “that cultivate ties with Israel because of its presumed influence in Washington”…

The progressive organization Moveon is featuring Ben & Jerry’s in its latest action alert, even though the ice cream company is being boycotted by three different social justice campaigns for its unethical practices in the Palestinian territories and its treatment of workers & the environment in Vermont.
Israel advocates have created a website and app to defend Israel online and attack critics. App users have already brought the rating of an Australian business critical of Israel down from 4.6 to 1.4.

As promised in our previous post, here are more of the messages composing our tribute to Alison Weir in honor of her birthday. We were waiting to post some of the birthday messages until we could deliver them the old-fashioned way, in person.

Israel recently banned foreigners who support boycotts against Israel from being allowed to enter Israel. People have objected in outrage to the law, particularly Westerners with family in Israel.

While many of Schneerson’s other teachings are laudable, his supremacist, racist teachings exemplified here support violence and terrorism against Palestinians.

Israeli minister called accusation of “anti-Semitism” a “trick” to silence criticism of Israel [VIDEO]
Shulamit Aloni, recipient of the Israel Prize, said: “It’s a trick, we always use it. When from Europe somebody is criticizing Israel, then we bring up the Holocaust.

Trump’s “Muslim ban”: Israeli strategic plans to “remake the Middle East” from 2001 and before targeted the same countries
