Chicago and Obama
Teacher: Chicago politics is corruption incarnate
Student: Isn't Obama from Chicago?
(Quote from my politics class)
"I just read your post regarding why there is no peace. I understand that in this world we have to empathize with another person. However what i don't get is how not hearing another's reasoning impedes on a peace process. In my opinion someone strapping an explosive vest on themselves and blowing up a bud full of men, women and children is what impedes a peace process. We are not at "war" amongst ourselves as jews or israelis. It's the violence towards Israel that impedes and prevents peace..." by elsarge28

I completely agree with you - negotiations will not be effective nor will peace be achieved if terrorism is still condoned. We’re on the same page - terrorism needs to be denounced in order to continue the ‘peace process’.

However, I think the point I made earlier is still relevant - if genuine academic discussion and debate cannot be achieved amongst Jewish young adults, it’s probably impossible for that to be replicated on a larger level. 

Also, re: ‘war amongst ourselves’. Sadly, I disagree with you. I think the current situation and the divide between the left and the right, the religious and the non-religious is steadily growing and becoming more and more severe. Rather than focusing on what unites us as a people, we’re focusing on our differences and further dividing ourselves. As a small people that constitute a tiny fraction of the world’s population this is dangerous attitude. In order to ensure our survival, we must be a united front and act as brothers who truly care and love each other. As Menachem Begin famously said “מלחמת אחים לעולם לא!”

רה”מ נתניהו מתייחס לתוכנית הגרעין של איראן

Dear Australian politicians,

Please grow up.


Article calls for Iranian strike on Israel.
Detailed plans to destroy Israel.
Netanyahu: We heard Iranian ruler call for our destruction.

Love you too! NOT.

Mum: So what did Iran say they'll do to Israel?
Me: Be mean and hurt us
Mum: What is politics? A playground?!

"We have received a reminder about what kind of a neighborhood we live in. We heard the Iranian ruler’s remarks about the elimination of Israel. We saw the Syrian army massacre its own people. We have seen bloody events in our region. Various leaders have no moral compunctions about killing their neighbors and their own people alike.

In such a region, the only thing that ensures our existence, security and prosperity is our strength. We are obligated to continue to develop the military, economic and social strength of the State of Israel. This is also the only guarantee for the existence of peace and the only defense for Israel should the peace unravel.

Developing Israel’s strength is this Government’s main issue.”


Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s remarks at the start of the weekly Cabinet meeting today:

Peace Now fights Migron and the Supreme Court lays down the law of the house
