In this week’s edition of News from the Jews, I have a few items I’d like to highlight from the Jewish press. The first article comes from The Jerusalem Post, and is laughably titled, “PM: Strike on Iran would be good for Arab world.”
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu sought on Tuesday to convince Arab states that an Israeli military strike on Iran would benefit them, removing a potential threat and easing tensions across the Middle East.
Netanyahu has made a number of veiled threats to attack Iran's nuclear program and has appealed to the United States and the United Nations to set a limit for Tehran on its further development.
In an interview published on Tuesday with French magazine Paris Match, Netanyahu said such a strike would not worsen regional tensions, as many critics have warned.
"Five minutes after, contrary to what the skeptics say, I think a feeling of relief would spread across the region," he said.
"Iran is not popular in the Arab world, far from it, and some governments in the region, as well as their citizens, have understood that a nuclear armed Iran would be dangerous for them, not just for Israel," he said.
And he’s calling the shots guys, remember that.
Isn’t it time someone finally stood up to this evil man?.
As for US-Israel relations, Shoval is optimistic, saying the allegiance between the two countries is strong and built on joint interests.
“Whoever is elected in the US presidential election will be Israel’s ally,” Shoval said. “Our interests are so close, that personal chemistry is less important.”Shoval pointed out that when he was ambassador, former prime minister Yitzhak Shamir and US president George H.W. Bush’s relationship was much worse than Netanyahu’s with US President Barack Obama, “but in the Gulf War and Madrid Conference, everything was fine.”
“I don’t think Netanyahu supports one side more than the other. I think one side is trying to paint that picture,” he added. “Netanyahu and I met with three Democratic senators last week, and they said they don’t feel there’s a divide.”

The third article comes from The Times of Israel and is titled, “Tearful UK Jewish academic tells court his trade union has crossed the line into anti-Semitism: Mathematics lecturer Ronnie Fraser breaks down under questioning in landmark trial.” Get a load of this cry baby:
ED Noor: Toss your cookies time, dear readers. Sometimes, there just are no words... because there are too many words; this story is one of them.
A British college lecturer broke down in tears in court on Wednesday while explaining why he had remained a member of the academics’ trade union despite feeling that it was institutionally anti-Semitic.
“I continued to put up with hurt and humiliation because my parents were refugees from the Holocaust,” said Ronnie Fraser, a freelance mathematics lecturer. “My mother’s parents, we think, died in Auschwitz as a result of the Nazi extermination of Jews and anti-Semitism. It is my way of saying ‘never again’, I don’t want my four children, my nine grandchildren, to have to suffer what they did.
“That is my motivation for continuing to put up with everything, the way I’ve been treated by the union. I didn’t want it to happen to them.”
Proceedings had to be brought to a halt for several minutes while Fraser, who had already struggled to contain his tears while taking the oath earlier in the morning, collected himself. […]
Fraser described how “frightened” he had been by a demonstration that took place at a conference held by National Association for Teachers in Further and Higher Education (NATFHE), one of UCU’s predecessors, in 2003.
“It was unbelievable, a totally unexpected demonstration,” he said. “It was the first time I’d gone to Conference…. I went to support a Trade Union for Israel stand. All of a sudden at lunchtime… 30 demonstrators suddenly turned up in front of us, each one held up a big board with letters spelling ‘Israel out of Palestine”. They chanted this incessantly for three-four minutes, it was very frightening… Then the NATFHE badges appeared, ‘NATFHE defends Palestine’.” […]
Fraser seemed to struggle with questions concerning the dividing line between anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism, stating several times that “I’m not an expert” and declining to elaborate. He also, at times, seemed to have difficulty answering White’s questions directly, asking for a large number of questions to be repeated.
Much of the discussion in the afternoon concerned a vote taken by the UCU Congress in 2011 to reject the working definition of anti-Semitism formulated by the European Union Monitoring Centre (EUMC) on Racism and Xenophobia, which is often used in universities. The EUMC definition categorizes several anti-Zionist arguments as anti-Semitic, for example claiming that the state of Israel is a racist endeavor. […]
Organized Jewry simply cannot allow criticism, or even discussion, of Zionism, Israel, Jewish power and intrigues, and other matters relating to the Jewish community and Jewish identity.
Two news items in the Jewish Telegraph Agency further underscore the points made in previous blog posts I’ve written concerning the real nature of the “Global War on Terror” and “Homeland Security”, namely that they are both Jewish rackets. Both of these concepts have their intellectual foundations in Israel and her neocon partisans controlling the United States government, public policy organizations, and media.
Also, the JTA is reporting that Israel will host a “Homeland Security” conference in the coming weeks to discuss “cyber security, critical infrastructure protection and emergency management, with 60 Israeli companies making presentations to “Homeland Security” officials, top police and intelligence brass and others in related fields.
The reasons for Israeli industry's comfort level with disaster are not mysterious.
Years before U.S. and European companies grasped the potential of the global security boom, Israeli technology firms were busily pioneering the homeland security industry, and they continue to dominate the sector today.The Israeli Export Institute estimates that Israel has 350 corporations dedicated to selling homeland security products, and 30 new ones entered the market in 2007. [...]
With the most tech-dependent economy in the world, Israel was hit harder by the dot-com crash than anywhere else. The country went into immediate free fall, and by June 2001, analysts were predicting that roughly three hundred high-tech Israeli firms would go bankrupt, with tens of thousands of layoffs. The Tel Aviv business newspaper Globes declared in a headline that 2002 was the "Worst Year for Israeli Economy Since 1953."
The only reason the recession was not even worse, the newspaper observed, was that the Israeli government quickly intervened with a powerful 10.7 percent increase in military spending, partially financed through cutbacks in social services.The government also encouraged the tech industry to branch out from information and communication technologies and into security and surveillance.In this period, the Israeli Defense Forces played a role similar to a business incubator. Young Israeli soldiers experimented with network systems and surveillance devices while they fulfilled their mandatory military services, and then turned their findings into business plans when they returned to civilian life. A slew of new start-ups were launched, specializing in everything from "search and nail" data mining, to surveillance cameras, to terrorist profiling.When the market for these services and devices exploded in the years after September 11, the Israeli state openly embraced a new national economic vision: the growth provided by the dot-com bubble would be replaced with a homeland security boom.
Finally, check out this article from The Jewish Daily Forward. Your tax dollars hard at work: subsidizing Jews to study the despicable, fiercely anti-Gentile and Jewish supremacist religious text, the Talmud:
Each year, tens of millions of dollars in federal Pell grants go to yeshivas, many of which focus primarily on Talmud study, a Forward review of U.S. Department of Education data reveals.
The Jewish colleges take their place among many other religion-oriented schools that receive Pell grant funds. But they punch far above their weight, according to the department’s statistics. Sixty-three of the 152 religious institutions that receive Pell grants are Jewish, the data shows. And these Jewish schools collectively received 53% of the $84.5 million in Pell grant money that went to religious schools in 2010, the most recent year for which final figures are available. Of the top 10 Pell grant recipients in dollar terms that year, six were yeshivas.
Jewish institutions were even more dominant when considered in terms of the percentage of students in each school receiving Pell grant aid; nine of the top 10 colleges in America, according to this criterion, are Jewish.
Pell grants, the government’s largest tuition aid program for low-income students, totaled $35 billion in 2011, making the sum going to religious schools a virtual drop in the bucket. About 9.5 million students received a Pell grant that year, with $5,550 being the maximum available for students to apply to their tuition, depending on need.
