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. In this article Lesher looks into the militarism, racism and Zionification that have become dominant within contemporary Jewish orthodoxy.
Please read and spread widely.
Einstein, Oppenheimer, Fritz Haber, Ben Gurion and Shimon Peres were secular Jews. They didn’t follow the Talmud nor did they keep the Sabbath, yet, like the Old Testament God himself, they just believed that weapons of mass destruction were simply the kosher way forward.
It doesn’t take a military analyst to grasp that the American attack on a remote Syrian airfield contradicts every possible military rationale. If America really believed that Assad possessed a WMD stockpile and kept it in al-Shayrat airbase, launching a missile attack that could lead to a release of lethal agents into the air would be the last thing it would do. If America was determined to ‘neutralise’ Assad’s alleged ‘WMD ability’ it would deploy special forces or diplomacy. No one defuses WMD with explosives, bombs or cruise missiles. It is simply unheard of.
I decided to look around and find out exactly what Donna Minkowitz’s own literary events look like. What I found was a most disturbing disclosure of family incest and unseemly morbidity.

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. The groove though, was a self-consciously heavy handed, funky shuffle injecting a subversive flavour into the passionate blowing, a riotously serious delivery that pervaded the whole evening. This was Atzmon and Barnes with Atzmon’s regular, equal to and up for anything rhythm section of Frank Harrison on piano, Yaron Stavi on bass and Chris Higinbottom on drums.
