(PJ Media Exclusive) To Sway U.S. Jews, National Jewish Democratic Council Fraudulently Edits, Exploits Sderot Jews

David Farer 

(Editor’s Note: David Farer is a resident of Sderot — the Israeli town on the border of the Gaza Strip that has suffered relentless missile attacks since Israel pulled all military and Jewish residents from the Gaza Strip in August 2005.
On August 15 of last month, the National Jewish Democratic Council released a video and accompanying press release titled “What Do Israelis Think of President Obama?” [1] The press release included this quote from NJDC President and CEO David A. Harris:
President Barack Obama’s strong support for Israel has been recognized by Israeli leaders such as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak, as well as many pro-Israel leaders here in the United States. … Today, we’re hearing what Israelis living on the front lines think.

Closed: Last Synagogue in Egypt

by Shiraz Maher  •  September 7, 2012

Where religious fanatics have started by persecuting minorities, it has not been long before they turned on their own, accusing them of irreligiousness, heresy and insidious betrayal. The religious freedoms of all Egyptians are in peril.
Fears for the future of religious minorities in Egypt were accentuated last week when it was announced that the last synagogue in the country would be closed down. The Eliyahu Hanavi Synagogue, which had operated in Alexandria, was the last functioning center of Jewish life in the country. It is now clear that its cavernous halls, built in the nineteenth century, will not be open to worshippers hoping to mark Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur services this year.

Local Jew Feels Left Out Of Worldwide Jewish Conspiracy

SOUTHFIELD, MI—It is an hour past sunset on a brisk Thursday night, and, like their brethren around the globe, the Jews of this affluent Detroit suburb are gathered in synagogues, busily hatching plots for world domination through financial chicanery and media influence. But for Seth Nussbaum, it will be just another lonely evening.

"For some reason, they've decided to leave me out of the worldwide Jewish conspiracy," said Nussbaum, a 34-year-old computer programmer. "And I can't say it doesn't hurt."
While his fellow Jews are controlling the flow of billions of dollars of international currency and brokering multi million-dollar entertainment deals, on this quiet night Nussbaum is making himself a frozen pizza and watching ER, far removed from any money beyond the $28,000 annual salary he receives from his job at Cyntech Industries.
"Who's to say I wouldn't enjoy hoarding a little gold every now and then?" he said, his voice tinged with bitterness. "Believe me, I'd love to be able to sneak around behind the scenes like the Elders of Zion, pulling the strings and holding the real power in society. But I guess when it comes to working the Jerusalem-New York-L.A. triangle, I just wasn't one of the chosen people."

Hamas Terror Tactics Threaten Both Palestinian and Israeli Civilians

Over the last 10 years, Hamas terrorists have launched more than 12,000 rockets at Israeli civilians. In order to avoid Israeli reprisals, Hamas terrorists use their Palestinian neighbors as human shields.

The video shows Hamas' tactics. Using its terrorists, Hamas places weapons and missile launchers in densely populated areas- knowing that the IDF won't target them thereby avoiding causing harm to civilians.

Egypt's President Mursi Calls Palestine "Top Priority"
TEHRAN (FNA)- Egyptian President Mohammad Mursi called the Palestinian issue 
a top priority agenda not just for his state, but for the entire Arab 
nations, and voiced his government's strong support for the official 
membership of an independent Palestinian state at the United Nations.
"Palestine is the top priority of Arabs," Mursi said during his remarks at 
the opening session of the Arab League's 138th regular meeting of foreign 
ministers, which began early Wednesday at the AL headquarters in Egypt's 
capital of Cairo.
He said despite the high pace of all challenges and developments in the 
region, the Palestinian issue has remained unresolved, adding that Israel is 
not serious about finding a solution to the issue.

Democratic Party’s New Pro-Hamas Platform


How bad would a second Obama term be for Israel? Really, really bad.

The campaign is generally not the time that crucial voting groups get thrown under the bus, but the Democratic Party’s new platform gives us a peek at what the next four years will be like if Israel’s best friend in the White House since Jimmy Carter gets another four years.
There were significant rumors of backdoor contacts between the Obama Administration and Hamas all along. Still Obama did not openly cross that threshold in Term 1. In Term 2, it’s another story.
The United States and its Quartet partners should continue to isolate Hamas until it renounces terrorism, recognizes Israel’s right to exist, and abides by past agreements.
That’s from 2008′s platform. It’s completely absent from the current platform where the word Hamas does not appear. Period.

And let’s be clear here, Obama has not had any problem breaking campaign promises. Hamas not being mentioned in the platform means that the next term will see open contacts between the United States and Hamas.

"Making Sense of It"

Arlene Kushner

As the US election draws near and issues involving Iran grow more tense, I find my task of reporting responsibly and accurately ever more difficult.  Rumors are being floated. Leaks are being leaked.  Denials are being issued that may be honest and may be covers.  And some of the information we're receiving may be deliberate disinformation to throw us off track.
Tension between Netanyahu and Obama has increased over the issue of Israel attacking Iran before the election.  The heart of the matter, with all the leaks and denials and rumors, is the question of whether Israel will attack and how Obama is responding to that possibility.

Eight Reasons Why Containment Is Not an Option Against a Nuclear Iran

by Yaakov Lappin
September 4, 2012 

It is about Israel's Right to Life.
1. Iran's regime is outspokenly dedicated to the goal of destroying the State of Israel. Iranian political, religious, and military leaders have expressed their desire to annihilate Israel at every opportunity they have received. Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, says that the physical elimination of Israel is a religious duty. It would be criminally negligent to disregard Iran's official state ideology, and gamble with the lives of millions of Israelis on the unproven assumption that Iran will behave rationally as a nuclear-armed actor. For Israel, the struggle to keep Iran from going nuclear is not about regional influence or ensuring an edge over its enemies. It is about Israel's Right to Life.

Were you aware that Mr. Obama...?

How Obama Bankrupted his Black Clients Before He Bankrupted America

Daniel Greenfield

There are things that Obama doesn’t do well, like run a country. But there are things that he does well and first and foremost 0f those is taking care of Number One. The 1 percent of the 1 percent that is him.
The Daily Caller’s extended article on Obama’s loan discrimination lawsuits and their consequences show us once again the two faces of the left, the face of the social activist battling injustice and the other face of the professional con artist who exploits the greed of his marks to wreck their lives and extract money from the system.
President Barack Obama was a pioneering contributor to the national subprime real estate bubble, and roughly half of the 186 African-American clients in his landmark 1995 mortgage discrimination lawsuit against Citibank have since gone bankrupt or received foreclosure notices.
Should Obama’s clients have gotten their loans or were they discriminated against? The track record is pretty hard to argue with.

PA to pay salaries to all terrorists in Israeli prisons

Financial aid from many donor countries
goes directly to PA budget from which salaries are paid

by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

A law published in the official Palestinian Authority Registry last month grants all Palestinians and Israeli Arabs imprisoned in Israel for terror crimes a monthly salary from the PA. The Arabic word the PA uses for this payment is "ratib," meaning "salary." Palestinian Media Watch has reported numerous times on Palestinian Authority glorification of terrorists serving time in Israeli prisons. Following the signing of this new law, the PA is now paying a salary to these prisoners.

The PA has defined by law which Palestinians would be considered "prisoners."
"Anyone imprisoned in the occupation's [Israel's] prisons as a result of his participation in the struggle against the occupation."
[Ch. 1 of Law of Prisoners, 2004/19,
passed and published by the PA Chairman and Government, December 2004.

No previous American president has had so strained a relationship with Israel as Barack Obama. As Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren said in 2010, “Israel’s ties with the United States are in their worst crisis since 1975 ... a crisis of historic proportions.” Author and scholar Dennis Prager concurred, “Most observers, right or left, pro-Israel or anti-Israel, would agree that Israeli-American relations are the worst they have been in memory.” In the spring of 2011, David Parsons, spokesman for the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, said: “There's a traditional, special relationship between America and Israel that Obama is basically throwing out the window in a sense.” Former New York City mayor Ed Koch lamented, “I believe this is the most dangerous and critical period that Israel has ever faced and regrettably it does not have the support of the President of the United States, which in past difficult situations it could count on.” David Rubin, a U.S.-born Israeli author and expert on the Middle East, put it this way: “President Obama is very harmful for Israel and very dangerous for the future of Judeo-Christian civilization.”

"And So It Goes..."

Arlene Kushner

First, please, see my article, up today on American Thinker.  It takes on JStreet's advocacy of the "two state solution," but can be utilized in critiquing that "solution" beyond what JStreet says:
I wrote yesterday about tensions emerging in the US-Israel relationship, and noted some hot words that allegedly passed between PM Netanyahu and US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro, on the issue of Obama's policy on Iran.  There have since been some denials of this report (second hand: of the "I spoke to the PMO's office and was told it never happened" variety).

Stop spitting in G-d's face

David Wilder 

I thought about driving up to Migron, last night, this morning.
Many years ago, after moving to Kiryat Arba, while studying in a Torah “Kollel” – study program for married men, I participated in founding the local ‘Chevra Kadisha,’ that being a volunteer organization that prepared deceased people for burial.  While looking for others to join in this holy work, one of the Rabbis told me, ‘sometimes, people with experience, won’t agree to participate. After a while, a person can reach a saturation point of dealing with death and dead people. They just don’t want to see it any more.’

"It's Still Iran"

The major news story, the source of greatest concern, here in Israel.
On Thursday, the IAEI released a report indicating that Iran has more than doubled the number of centrifuges in its Fordo facility, from 1,064 in May to 2,140 in August. 
In the wake of this, we can see a number of stories which, taken together, suggest a certain turmoil:
Al-Sharq Al-Awsat, a London-based Arab language paper, reported "Vienna sources" as saying the information about the centrifuges may accelerate the West's plans to strike Iran.
