    Pope Pius XII. Jerusalem, Israel, Jul 5, 2012 / 03:38 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Israel's Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial has made changes to a controversial exhibit on Pope Pius XII, presenting a more balanced view of his actions toward the Nazis and their Jewish victims. Pave the Way Foundation President Gary Krupp, a prominent Jewish defender of Pope Pius XII, said his inter-religious group was “very pleased” with Yad Vashem's change of position, which “should show the world that it is truly an institution based on facts and truth.” “The black legend against Pope Pius XII is being bleached white...

    Those who think socialized medicine is just an all good program that keeps you healthy while somebody else pays your medical bills ought to think again. Socialized medicine takes whatever you have; whatever it can get from you. If you have financial means it will take your money and your rights. If you have no money socialized medicine will take your rights even your religious rights. Recently a German court, no doubt encouraged by the European system of socialized medicine, ruled that circumcision even for (especially for?) religious reasons amounts to a bodily assault. In doing so the Cologne...

    The fireworks lingered past the Fourth and exploded at a Palm Beach County Democratic Executive Committee meeting Thursday, when local party Chairman Mark Alan Siegel broached the inflammatory emails and consequential resignation of DEC member Evelyn Garcia. Siegel addressed the scandal with a warning on the dangers of sharing emails, prompting one member to become agitated enough to confront him.
  • James Q. Wilson (2008): Do Blacks Treat Jews in the Same Manner in Which Jews Treat Evangelicals?

    06/28/2012 10:07:31 AM PDT · by pinochet · 168 replies
    The late conservative sociologist and evangelical Christian, James Q. Wilson, made an interesting observation on the manner in which Blacks, Jews, and Evangelicals relate to one another. Here is his fascinating 2008 article: http://www.city-journal.org/2008/18_1_evangelicals.html Here is a summary of his article. White Evangelical Christians are the strongest supporters of Israel in America, and their support for Israel comes from their religious beliefs that Israel is a fulfillment of scripture. But most American Jews have never been great fans of evangelicals, despite great efforts on the part of evangelicals to reach out to Jews. Jews are the one white ethnic group,...

    Citing Israel's "apartheid state," Alice Walker, who wrote Pulitzer Prize-winning 'Color of Purple' reaffirms support of BDS movement. Alice Walker, author of The Color Purple, refused to authorize a Hebrew translation of her prize-winning work, citing what she called Israels apartheid state. In a June 9 letter to Yediot Books, Walker said she would not allow the publication of the book into Hebrew because Israel is guilty of apartheid and persecution of the Palestinian people, both inside Israel and also in the Occupied Territories. In her letter, posted Sunday by the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of...

    Since he knows more about Judaism than any other president, you would think he’d be uniquely equipped to craft a winning pitch.Big deal or no?Why it might be a big deal: 64 percent among Jewish voters is a very, very weak showing for a modern Democratic nominee. Compare and contrast. O took 78 percent of their vote four years ago; Kerry, Gore, and Clinton all cracked 75 percent, and Jimmy Carter raked in 71 percent when he was elected in 1976. The only nominees who failed to reach 70 percent in the past 35 years were, er, Dukakis, Mondale, and...

    The Council of American Islamic Relations [CAIR] may tout itself as an organization that challenges stereotypes of Islam and Muslims, and as group that was formed to challenge anti-Muslim discrimination nationwide. But in fighting the good fight against hate, at least one of its regional leaders demonizes Jews as the source of Muslims problems. Who are those who incurred the wrath of Allah? CAIR-Michigan Executive Director Dawud Walid asked in a May 25 sermon at the Islamic Organization of North America mosque in Warren, Mich. They are the Jews, they are the Jews, he answered himself in Arabic. Aside from...

    The Interior Ministry says an attack by 10 assailants on 3 people in southeast France was anti-Semitic, and has called for the assailants to be brought to justice. Two of the victims were hospitalized. The office of Interior Minister Manuel Valls said Sunday that police were mobilized to arrest those behind the attack a night earlier in Villeurbaine, near the city of Lyon. The ministry said the assailants wielded a hammer and an iron bar. One victim sustained an open wound to the head, and another suffered a neck injury. Both men wore Jewish skullcaps.

    Inside the synagogue, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, who mindlessly called Israeli settlements obstacles to peace, was going to speak. Outside Bnai Torah, in Boca Raton, Florida, members were anxiously pointing out Alan Bergstein, writer and pro-Israel activist, to the reinforced law enforcement detail. Bergstein and other anti-Obama Jews were denied entrance and told by law enforcement to leave the property. How far and how shamelessly some in the Jewish community have sunk in their embrace of Obama is ineradicably seen in this action. A Jew being denied entrance to a synagogue brings to mind Germany in...

    American Thinker ^ | 5/20/12 | Rick Richman
    Last week, the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research held an extraordinary conference in New York, with 18 scholars presenting formal papers on "Jews and the Left," addressing such issues as "present-day understandings of Jewish attraction to the Left in the 19th and 20th centuries," whether today's left is "in whole or in part anti-Semitic," and the relationship between the left and Israel. The response to these issues -- coming from a group of scholars who were largely leftists or liberals themselves -- was quite remarkable. In his "Introductory Remarks," Prof. Jack Jacobs of CUNY asserted that "the one-time ties between...

    A former U.S. Attorney appointed by President Obama who previously came under scrutiny by the Jewish Orthodox community may soon be confirmed by the U.S. Senate for a federal judgeship, after she received a majority vote from the Senate Judiciary Committee. Stephanie Rose, 39, was recently nominated for a lifetime appointment by President Obama in the Southern District of Iowa. Roses appointment is controversial within the Orthodox Jewish community because of her previous involvement in the prosecution of Sholom Rubashkin, the former CEO of a now-bankrupt, Iowa-based Kosher meatpacking company that was accused of employing hundreds of illegal immigrants and...

    IN DECEMBER 1862, from his military headquarters in Mississippi, Major General Ulysses S. Grant issued a directive expelling "Jews as a class" from the immense war zone known as the Department of the Tennessee. General Orders No. 11 was the most notorious anti-Jewish edict ever issued by an official of the US government, and it was overruled by the commander-in-chief -- President Abraham Lincoln -- as soon as he learned of it in Washington. Notwithstanding its sweeping terms, the order turned out to have little immediate impact on the thousands of Jews living in the area under Grant's command. Only...

    For the first time, archaeologists have uncovered shrines from the time of the early Biblical kings in the Holy Land, providing the earliest evidence of a cult, they say. Excavation within the remains of the roughly 3,000-year-old fortified city of Khirbet Qeiyafa, located about 19 miles (30 kilometers) southwest of Jerusalem, have revealed three large rooms used as shrines, along with artifacts, including tools, pottery and objects, such as alters associated with worship.
