The National Security Council Counter-Terrorism Bureau issued a travel warning to Israelis for the upcoming spring holidays of Passover, Independence Day and Lag B’Omer.

In a statement it released on Wednesday, the Counter-Terrorism Bureau said that the holidays, especially Passover, “are liable to provide incentive for terrorists around the world to attack Israeli and Jewish targets abroad.”

Catherine Ashton Adds Insult To Injury With Anti-Semitic Ignorance

In Terrorist Victims on 20/03/2012 at 11:48

Maybe she was dropped on her head as a child. Perhaps she was allowed to lick lead-based paint. Whatever the excuse,

EU foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton

EU foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton

the European Union’s Foreign Policy Chief, Catherine Ashton idiotically compared the Toulouse shootings on Monday to children dying in Gaza. She said, “When we think about what happened today in Toulouse, we also remember what happened in Norway last year, and what is happening now in Syria and Gaza, and other areas of the world…We see before our eyes all the children who lost their lives.”

Of course she quickly tried to back pedal after Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman demanded a retraction and Opposition leader Tzipi Livni called the remarks “outrageous.” Her office called the reports “grossly distorted” and that, “The High Representative referred to tragedies taking the lives of children around the world and drew no parallel whatsoever between the circumstances of the Toulouse attack and the situation in Gaza.” No parallel except that she made the comparison during a meeting with Palestinian Authority Arab youth in Brussels. Context, context, context.

by Leadership Action Network

March 13, 2012

As a fragile cease-fire goes into effect, it is important to note the background facts:

(1) Over 210 rockets have been fired from the Gaza Strip at Israel over the past three days, targeting as many as one million civilians (15% of the Israeli population). Rockets reached past Ashdod to Gedera, about 20 miles south of Tel Aviv. Today alone, 47 rockets exploded in Israeli territory and 13 were intercepted by the Iron Dome defense system which protects populated areas in the target zone.

Israel has passed a stern warning to the Palestinian Jihad Islami shooting missiles from Gaza for the third day to expect punishment on a different scale from the current surgical air strikes if they fire Fajr surface missiles against the Tel Aviv area, DEBKAfile reports. The warning was relayed Sunday, March 11, through Egyptian Intelligence Chief Gen. Murad Muwafi.

Help Free Alan Gross

In Alan Gross, Petitions on 05/03/2012 at 18:13

Please join with Jewish communities throughout the United States to help fulfill the Jewish value of pidyon shivuim, (redemption of the captive).

Take immediate action! Click here to sign a petition to the Papal Nuncio requesting that Pope Benedict XVI seek Alan’s release during his upcoming visit to Cuba.

Alan Gross, a resident of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, was arrested in Cuba in December 2009 while working with the small Jewish community there to improve their Internet access and to create an intranet for them. He has been incarcerated ever since. He languished in prison for over a year until he was finally charged by the Cuban government. He was convicted by a Cuban court of “actions against the integrity of the State,” and sentenced to 15 years in prison. He subsequently appealed his sentence to the Cuban Supreme Court and the court reaffirmed the sentence, exhausting all of Alan’s legal remedies. His only avenue left is commutation of his sentence by Raul Castro, President of Cuba.

Missionary James Joseph, a.k.a 'the Jesus guy'

Dozens of mail deliverers who were supposed to deliver copies of the Christian “New Testament” Bible to homes in Ramat Gan refused to do so, arguing that the deliveries constituted “missionary material.”

The mail deliverers said that distributing missionary material is forbidden by Jewish law (Halakha) and may also be against state law. They therefore asked that a legal inquiry be held before taking a decision on whether to hand out the Bibles.

The postal workers contacted MK Zevulun Orlev (Jewish Home) and asked him to assist them vis-à-vis the Postal Authority, which they say demands that they “do their job” and distribute the material that was sent.
