    Blazes in Sderot's Sapir College and Kibbutz Gevim two of several fires caused by flammable objects; follow at least ten such incidents on FridayA fire caused by an incendiary balloon flown from the Gaza Strip broke out near one of the buildings of Sderots Sapir College Saturday. Authorities were working on Saturday afternoon to extinguish the blaze, which was one of at least six fires caused by incendiary devices launched from the coastal enclave since the morning. Firefighters were also battling a massive fire near the close-by Kibbutz Gevim, where an incendiary balloon was found at the site which borders...
  • What Is Sanders Hiding?

    It’s long been known that the only self-professed socialist in the Senate spent time on a kibbutz, or communal farm. Nothing wrong with that. But so tight-lipped has Mr. Sanders been about it that the Israeli daily Haaretz put its reporters on the mystery. “One of Israel’s best-kept secrets” is how the paper described the name of Mr. Sanders’ kibbutz. At one point it thought it had found the senator’s name in a kibbutz archive, but it turned out to be a Bernice Stamder. Haaretz finally solved the mystery last week, with the discovery, in its own files, of an...
  • Greenfield: Bernie Sanders Spent Months at Marxist-Stalinist Kibbutz

    Bernie Sanders Spent Months at Marxist-Stalinist Kibbutz February 4, 2016 Daniel Greenfield Bernie Sanders has a complicated history with Israel. Back in the 70s, he called for denying weapons to Israel before the Yom Kippur War. His voting record on Israel in the Senate was spotty at best. He called for "aggressive normalization" with the terror state of Iran at the Democratic debate. But defenders keep mentioning that he and his anti-Israel brother Larry, who is with the Green Party in the UK, spent time at a Kibbutz in Israel. When Bernie Sanders entered the race, there was a good...
  • Washington Post Columnist Accuses Ted Cruz Of Using “Anti-Semitic Dog Whistle”

    The Washington Post’s one-man Fifth Column, Dana Milbank, is at it again. Apparently, he has been shadowing Ted Cruz’s campaign. Unable to come up with anything substantive, what he’s produced is one of the most juvenile screeds ever to appear in any major newspaper: "When Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) last month mocked Donald Trump’s “New York values,” it wasn’t entirely clear what he was implying. This week we got a clue: For Cruz, “New York” is another way of saying “Jewish.” At an event in New Hampshire, Cruz, the Republican Iowa caucuses winner, was asked about campaign money he and...

    When Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) last month mocked Donald Trump‘s "New York values," it wasn‘t entirely clear what he was implying. This week we got a clue: For Cruz, "New York" is another way of saying "Jewish." At an event in New Hampshire, Cruz, the Republican Iowa caucuses winner, was asked about campaign money he and his wife borrowed from Goldman Sachs. Cruz, asserting that Trump had "upward of $480 million of loans from giant Wall Street banks," said: "For him to make this attack, to use a New York term, it‘s the height of chutzpah." Cruz, pausing for laughter...
  • Vetting Bernie: Mission Impossible? Finding Bernie Sander's Kibbutz

    Haaretz (Israeli newspaper) ^ | 8/30/2015 | Judy Maltz
    The Democratic presidential candidate waxes lyrical about his time spent on an Israeli kibbutz in the 1960s. But which one? Haaretz tries to find out. The assignment should have been a no-brainer: Find out what kibbutz Bernie Sanders volunteered at in 1963 or 1964. The presidential candidate has described the time he spent on an Israeli collective farm as a formative experience. Not surprisingly, many Israelis have been wondering which exact kibbutz had such an impact on the Jewish socialist and rising star of the U.S. presidential campaign.

    The Israeli army thwarted a large-scale infiltration attempt along the Gaza border, during which 13 armed Palestinians emerged from a tunnel on the Israeli side of the border at dawn Thursday, an army spokesperson said. The spokesperson described the attack as in line with a series of other thwarted attacks over the past 10 days of warfare, including two infiltration attempts from the sea near Kibbutz Zikim, a tunnel near Kerem Shalom, and a drone attack earlier this week.

    Yehuda Doron, the former treasurer of Kibbutz Shefayim, and his wife, Katrina, were convicted Sunday of stealing about 16.5 million shekels from the kibbutz, and of a number of serious financial offenses, which were carried out between 1996 and 2002. Yehuda Doron was born in Shefayim and lived there his whole life, until he and his family were forced to leave when the embezzlement was discovered. He served in several important positions over the years, mostly in the kibbutz's financial department. According to the verdict, he enjoyed unlimited trust from the kibbutz members who believed in his ability to steer...

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 20/11/11 | Tzvi Ben Gedaliahu
    An Israel media report, picked up worldwide, claims Israel, for the first time, has given supposed Palestinian Authority land to a kibbutz whose land was within Israel before the Six-Day War in 1967. An investigation by Arutz Sheva reveals another in a long line of anti-nationalist media reports that mainstream media spread in its ingrained bias against Israel. Haaretz reported last week that the land in question was given by Israeli authorities to Kibbutz Meirav, located southwest of Beit Shean in the Jordan Valley. The newspaper reported, Israel has previously built roads on and given Palestinian land in the West...

    Barack Obamakibbutznik? Of all the ways the presidential candidate sought to connect with Jewish voters at Congregation B'nai Torah in Boca Raton yesterday, perhaps the most heartfelt seemed these lines: BARACK OBAMA: As I learned more [about the Zionist movement], I found I had a deep affinity with the idea of social justice that was embodied in the Jewish faith. There was a notiontikkunthat you could repair the breach of the past. There was a notion, embodied in the kibbutz, that we all had a responsibility to each other. That we're all in this together. That hope can persevere even...

    A Reform rabbi pleads with members of the first kibbutz to reconsider their approach to Judaism My Dear Friends, I read recently that you have decided to build a synagogue at your kibbutz. As a reform rabbi with a kibbutz background, your decision has made me both happy and sad. I was thrilled to hear that you, the descendants of the original kibbutz, have chosen to inject a modicum of holiness and tradition to your lives. But I was saddened to hear you have chosen an Orthodox, discriminatory synagogue. My friends, your fathers and mothers built an original, important, Jewish...

    On the eve of the 56th Independence Day, two veteran members of Kibbutz Lahavot Habashan in the Hula Valley have revealed a long-held secret the site of a "slick," a hidden arms cache, from the days of the British Mandate. Police and sappers on Wednesday found a carefully concealed bunker under the floor of a warehouse, not far from the dining hall, some 12 meters deep and about 10 meters square with built-in steps leading down from the access hole, which was covered by a concrete slab. Inside they discovered around 40 rifles of various types, ammunition, a water-cooled...

    Five people were killed and three injured when terrorists infiltrated Kibbutz Metzer, near the Green Line, close to midnight Sunday and opened fire. Police sources said that the bodies of three adults and two children had been found. According to initial reports, it appeared that the terrorists entered a home and opened fire, after first firing on kibbutz members walking from the dining room to their homes. Israel Radio later reported that three people were killed in a home and two near the dining room. The security coordinator at the kibbutz spotted at least one of the terrorists and opened...
