What is it about Us?

Vic Rosenthal Today I read a very interesting piece by Times of Israel editor David Horovitz, an interview with David Brog, who runs Sheldon Adelson’s Macabee Task Force.

The so-called “leader” of the Palestinian “people,” Mahmoud Abbas, has been put in the hospital again, after two earlier visits last week following an operation on his inner ear.

What happens if 35,000 Gazan protesters led by their Hamas masters break through the fence at the Israel/Gaza border? Do they sit down quietly after breaking through?

Syrian Poison Gas attack Produces a Yawn at the United Nations

At the United Nations this week it is business as usual, making claims of Israeli atrocities — possible crimes against humanity — for killing a number of rioting Palestinians during a huge demonstration at the entrance to the Gaza strip. Not a word of crimes against humanity for the poison gas attack in Syria. Why…
