• On ‘Jerusalem Day,’ Jews Rejoice, Jew-Haters Riot

    Yom Yerushalayim is the Israeli national holiday celebrating the reunification of the Holy City of Jerusalem, following the June, 1967 Six Day War. For many observant Jews, Yom Yerushalayim is a religious holiday as well as a national one.

    This year was only the second time Israelis could celebrate Yom Yerushalayim with the full recognition by the U.S. government that, indeed, Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

    President Donald Trump proclaimed that official recognition on Dec. 6, 2017. At that time Trump also announced the U.S. would move the American Embassy from Tel Aviv – which has never been Israel’s capital – to Jerusalem, which has been the center of Judaism since the time of King David in the tenth century BCE.

  • Leftist Finnish Party Embraces Homophobic, Racist MP

    How odd – the Social Democrat Party (SDP) in Finland just minted a brand new member of Parliament who insulted gays, Somalis, America, Israel, Jews and Sunni Muslims. The SDP is the leftist party of progressives, kind of like the Social Democrat wing of our own Democratic party. Notwithstanding their political “convictions,” the party has stood by the man whose election victory last month gave the SDP the majority over the right wing Finns Party.

    The 35-year-old MP in question, pro-Iran Iraqi refugee Hussein al-Taee, enabled the SDP to reach 40 members in the Parliament, narrowly besting the Finns Party showing of 39.
