What's the difference between a Jewish Mother and a Rottweiler?
Eventually the Rottweiler lets go!
But Blitzer won’t let go.
Watch this disgusting CNN interview...
Yesterday we learned that Israeli right-wing activists threw a free barbecue outside a military prison in the West Bank, where Palestinian inmates are currently taking part in a mass hunger strike. Such a barbarian act is pretty revealing. It points to the Israeli activists’ complete lack of human empathy and compassion.
If Weinberg and his four-and-a-half acolytes believe that referring to me as a ‘shitlord’ and my ideas as ‘turd’ will make the Jewish progressive school look humane and advanced, he and his friends must be ever-so-slightly deluded. Such tactics can so easily backfire.
GA: The following article was posted on The Time Of Israel's website yesterday morning. It was then removed by the Zionist outlet. This is the first time I publish an article by Michael Lesher who is an orthodox Jew as well as a courageous whistleblower.

Alan Barnes and Gilad Atzmon, two of Britain’s most celebrated virtuoso reeds players, join forces to produce an unforgettable jazz night of superb music spiced up with great humour.
Blib-Blob may have summed it up. The blistering bebop-ish theme twisted and leapt through the rhythm changes sequence, tenor (Gilad Atzmon) and alto (Alan Barnes) locked together.
