  • The Israeli Left's War Against the Israeli Flag (and the true impulses behind it)

    The Israeli Left has a serious flag problem. Well, a problem with the Israeli flag to be precise. The one with the six-pointed blue star. Not the ISIS flag. The Left intensely dislikes people who wave Israeli flags, although I think it would be okay with those radical anti-Trump protesters waving Mexican and Iranian flags. At the Israeli Left's own rallies, like one widely reported recently, one sees oodles of Stalinist red flags, lots of PLO flags, and sometimes one may see Hamas flags, but no Israeli flags. In a few famous cases, the Left's contempt for the flag goes...

    (Newser) – Mitt Romney and William Kristol met privately "over glasses of water" Thursday to discuss running a third-party candidate and the possibility that candidate might be Romney himself, the Washington Post reports. Kristol, a conservative commentator and editor of the Weekly Standard, has been a major part of the #NeverTrump movement, according to Time. “[Romney] came pretty close to being elected president, so I thought he may consider doing it, especially since he has been very forthright in explaining why Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton should not be president of the United States,” Kristol tells the Post. Romney announced...

    The Hebrew University of Jerusalem ^ | July 12, 2010 | Unknown
    Jerusalem, July 11, 2010 -- A tiny clay fragment – dating from the 14th century B.C.E. – that was found in excavations outside Jerusalem's Old City walls contains the oldest written document ever found in Jerusalem, say researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The find, believed to be part of a tablet from a royal archives, further testifies to the importance of Jerusalem as a major city in the Late Bronze Age, long before its conquest by King David, they say. The clay fragment was uncovered recently during sifting of fill excavated from beneath a 10th century B.C.E. tower...

    About 150 Arab and far-left Israeli students protested Monday outside the Hebrew University of Jerusalem against Israel's air assault on Hamas installations in Gaza. The peaceful if boisterous demonstration, which was held on a brisk December afternoon at the entrance to the university's Mount Scopus campus, was met by a counter-demonstration of equal size by Israeli students, with a large contingent of police separating between the two sides. The predominantly Arab protesters, some of whom carried Palestinian flags, sang the Palestinian national anthem and carried placards which read "Stop the Holocaust" and "Peace or Pieces?" "We are protesting because of...

    Israeli researchers engineered mesenchymal stem cells to repair tendons. Weekend athletes who overexert themselves running or playing basketball may one day reap the benefits of research at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem that shows that adult stem cells can be used to make new tendon or ligament tissue. Tendon and ligament injuries present a major clinical challenge to orthopedic medicine. In the United States, at least 200,000 patients undergo tendon or ligament repair each year. Moreover, the intervertebral disc, which is composed in part of tendon-like tissue, tends to degenerate with age, leading to the very common phenomenon of low-back...

    Baltimore police are investigating a firebombing at Baltimore Hebrew University after an employee reported a loud noise and then a fire at the base of a side door of a building in the 5800 block of Park Heights Ave. in Northwest Baltimore. The incident occurred about 2:45 p.m. yesterday. Agent Donny Moses, a city police spokesman, said the female employee alerted maintenance workers who came and extinguished the small fire and then alerted authorities. Moses said detectives determined the fire was started by an incendiary device, such as a Molotov cocktail, thrown at a steel door, causing no damage. It...

    Members of the Board of Governors of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, students and bereaved families dedicated a monument on Monday in memory of nine students and staff killed in a bomb attack a year ago at the Mount Scopus campus. The 'live' sculpture created by Ran Morin and called the "Tilted Tree," consists of a tree planted at an angle to appear as though its life has been disrupted, though not halted by the attack last July 31 at the Frank Sinatra Student Center. "This tree, whose roots were shaken, will continue to grow, will continue to bear fruit,"...

    10:42 A.M. EDT THE PRESIDENT: Thank you all for coming. It's been my honor to welcome the leadership of the United States Congress here, to welcome them back from the August recess. We talked about a variety of issues -- talked about the defense appropriations bill, and terrorism insurance, and an energy bill. Spent most of our time talking about a serious threat to the United States, a serious threat to the world, and that's Saddam Hussein. One of the things I made very clear to the members here is that doing nothing about that serious threat is not an...

The UK prime minister on Wednesday again promised to produce a dossier of evidence against Iraq "in the next few weeks". Dossier...

    Commenting on reports that the Iraqi leadership has declared its willingness to discuss a return of U.N. weapons inspectors, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said the regime of Saddam Hussein had demonstrated "a wonderful talent and skill" over the years at manipulating the international community. "When it's the right moment to lean forward, they lean forward. When it's the right moment to lean back, they lean back. It's a dance they engage in," Rumsfeld said at a press conference Tuesday, in response to questions. Rumsfeld commented on remarks by Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Tarik Aziz, who said at the economic World...

    "We ask for your help to make the Sept. 11 anniversary a time to reflect on peace and healing, not a time to call for more war and violence." These are the words of Kelly Campbell, who lost a brother-in-law to the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11. She is a founding member and co-director of Peaceful Tomorrows, an organization started by Sept. 11 families who advocate peace, not war. I heard her speak in New York at the national conference of the Fellowship of Reconciliation in June. The theme of the conference was "The Power of Nonviolence: Exploring Alternatives." I...

    The British government will publish "in the next few weeks" details of evidence indicating that Saddam Hussein has continued to try to acquire weapons of mass destruction, Prime Minister Tony Blair said Tuesday. The plan mirrors the action taken by Britain in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks to boost international support for military action against Afghanistan. Speaking to reporters at a news conference in his parliamentary district of Sedgefield in northern England, Blair said, "The United States should not have to face this issue (of Iraq) alone. We should face it together." Blair said it was in the...

And now it is nearly upon us that weight has become almost intolerable. What happened to the 2,823 Americans and their families was unutterable and I hate the malevolent malcontents who perpetrate these acts – indeed the Tunisian-Swedish hijacker arrested on Friday may be one such plotter. However, I have to make this unambiguous proclamation to...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - The economic cost New York City suffers as the result of the Sept. 11 attacks will range from $83 billion to $95 billion, partly depending upon how many jobs are shifted out of the city, a new report said on Wednesday. City Comptroller William Thompson also estimated in his new report that it will cost $21.8 billion to replace the buildings, infrastructure and what he called "tenant assets" lost as a result of the attacks that toppled the World Trade Center. Some 13 million square feet of prime office space were destroyed -- an amount equal...

    <p>Now that we are set to have our great debate on the war against terrorism, it seems it will be the wrong debate.</p> <p>By all indications, the discussion will be about using our irresistible military might against a single country in order to bring down its leader. We should instead be talking about using all our political, moral and military genius to support a vast democratic revolution to liberate all the peoples of the Middle East from tyranny. That is our real mission, the essence of the war in which we are engaged, and the proper subject of our national debate.</p>
