Must Watch! Two Dapper Dudes Discuss Doom!

So, I love these guys.

I have the YUGEST crush on Douglas Murray, and Mark Steyn is just super peachy keen as well!

So do watch them have an amazing conversation about the impending collapse of Europe by suicide. 

A jolly good time will not be had by all, but at least it's fun listening to them with their fancy accents discuss how doomed we are, and they are both very well dressed! And those are the main things, right?

Remember, whatever you are "not supposed to talk about" is exactly what you should be talking about.

Whatever the SHUT UP is demanding is exactly what you need to be discussing.

Listen to these brave, smart men have a serious adult conversation about the issues of the day.

The political left has a romance right now with the LGBT and the Muslim community, but never the twain shall meet, and the political left will soon be scorned-at the expense of the entire West.

Link Dump For Your Reading Pleasure

Things have been quite busy lately. And even though 'busy people always have time', I'm afraid I'm quite exhausted by day's end.

I don't mean to kvetch, but I really don't have a lot of time to write as of late.

I am, as always, saving up vast swaths of links for your perusal, I just don't always have time to throw them up on the blog.

But here's a few that you need to read:

Jews:

Very cool story: JRR Tolkiens Jewish Great Grandson

What an amazing boy. American Jewish teen raises money to send Holocaust survivor to Israel to meet last living relative.

Must read: the political left and it’s “anger privilege”. Read the whole thing.

Eurapia:

Woman raped nine times by three asylum seekers who filmed the attack (in Germany).

I love this guy. The amazing Douglas Murray: Europe determined to commit suicide by diversity/migration.

America:

Celebrate Female Genital Mutilation with summer “vacation cutting”. I used to go to summer camp. This is a different kind of summer experience.

Sarah Hoyt: On being persona non-grata. (Really good and I resemble her remarks.)

I've also been listening to a tremendous podcast by James Delingpole, and I will post that later if I remember. It's a fabulous interview with Roger Scruton and you will not want to miss it. If you don't want to wait till I post it you can just totter over to iTunes and download it yourself. It's simply called the Delingpole podcast. I am just mesmerized by this one. The one with Tommy Robinson was also really good. 

(Very interesting that Mr. Delingpole started out-like Mark Steyn-writing about the arts and music. There's so much good stuff in this particular episode that I am sad I'm almost done. Great stuff.) 

GOTTA RUN.

Linda Sarsour's Politics of Hate and Her Jewish Enablers


"The strategy is a familiar one. In left-wing milieus across the Western world, Jews are simultaneously told that the (often violent) bigotry directed against them is but a figment of their hysterical, oversensitive imaginations. The most recent attempt to exterminate them en masse, in the form of the Holocaust, was not a uniquely insidious event, as Jews were merely one among many victim groups. And today, because they are “white,” Jews cannot be victims of the “systemic” oppression endured by women, Muslims, ethnic minorities, queer people et cetera and ad infinitum. Paradoxically, the existence and nature of Jewish historical suffering is fully acknowledged only when it can be used to further other causes and concerns (“the African Holocaust,” “Syria’s Anne Frank,” etc.). As for when Jews mention actual Jewish suffering in defense of other Jews, they are painted as extremists who exploit the Shoah. Yet the people making these accusations are always willing to retail Jewish pain and victimhood whenever it suits them—namely, when the victims in question aren’t Jews."

Evergreen College and the Death Of Free Speech in America

As per Mark Steyn, who says "the left doesn't want to win the debate, the left wants to shut down the debate".

These students have got the message: "you've lost that one".

Evergreen should be shut down.

This is pathetic and disgusting.

Can You Imagine What We Don't Know...

If we know this and it's public: 

This could be a game changer for the Middle East.

Could be YUGE. 

"Saudi Arabia and Israel are in talks to establish open economic ties that may even pave the way for future normalization between the two countries, the London-based Sunday Times newspaper has reported."

"Citing American and Arab sources, the paper said the process would begin with small steps, such as permitting Israeli businesses to operate in the Persian Gulf and allowing Israeli national airline El Al fly over Saudi airspace."

"Such progress would bolster the alliance between Iran's two most implacable enemies and change the dynamics of the many conflicts destabilizing the Middle East," the report said."

"The possibility of closer ties with Israel would partly explain why Saudi Arabia and its allies have imposed a sweeping blockade on Qatar, in an effort to force the Gulf state to drop its support for Hamas, the Islamist Palestinian militants who control Gaza."

Please, Lefty Jews....

Tell me again how antisemitic the Trump administration and family are.

"My Father Was Absolutely Transformed By That Act"

A nice story for Father's Day.

"Steve Ross searched for decades for the US soldier that had comforted and fed him as Dachau concentration camp was being liberated by Allied forces in 1945. As Ross carved out a new life in America, he retold the story countless times, carrying with him the American flag handkerchief the soldier left him."

"My father was absolutely transformed by that small act," said Michael Ross, a former Boston City Council president and onetime mayoral candidate. 

"It helped him regain his faith in humanity. It shows that these things we do in life have profound consequences; that how we treat each other matters."

Steyn: The Left Doesn't Want to Debate, It Wants to Shut Down the Debate

Exactly.

Mark Steyn is truly at the top of his game while discussing the latest political violence coming from the left.

Perhaps most importantly: he's also wearing a lovely suit and tie AS ALWAYS. Lovely colour combination and I wonder if he coordinated the striped tie situation with Tucker? Did they call each other before? I do like Tucker's preppy style as well, and GAWD I love The Face! The bemused, OMG I cannot believe what I am hearing face. Seriously. Love that.

So Tucker, you carry on with your look, it's working for you! Don't go changing...Stay away from pocket squares, that's really Steynian sartorial territory. Just sayin' and yes I know I am basically talking to myself because I highly doubt that Tucker Carlson is going to be getting style (or any other) advice from a slightly unusual, Zionist, SteynFrauian, suburban Jewish mother. One can always aspire though to great things!

*clears throat*

*channels President Trump*

I'M EXCELLENT AT ADVICE. I'M TREMENDOUS AT ADVICE. YOU'RE GONNA GET SUCH GOOD ADVICE THAT YOU'RE GONNA GET TIRED OF ALL THE GOOD ADVICE. 

*waves*

Actually, these two have a really good chemistry and I like when Mark makes Tucker crack up and he lets out a real belly guffaw. I think it would be fun to have a beer with these two. OK maybe not a beer but some fine, kosher, dry red and a YUGE kosher steak at some fine, high-end kosher establishment, full of wild and crazy Jews somewhere in Manhattan. I'll have mine medium well, and my husband medium rare, thanks....

SORRY WHERE WAS I???

HMM. Nice suits, nice guys. Dinner, conversation, yucking it up. Hmmm...

Oh right RIGHT RIGHT OKAY OKAY OKAY: the thuggish left and its appetite and lust for violence.

Do watch both videos. Here's the first:



I really have no patience for the idea that "both sides" need to tone down the rhetoric because there's only one side that wants to shut down debate. There's only one side that is not capable of putting together a cogent argument and winning people over by logic and reason and persuasion, rather than through intimidation and violence.

There's only one side suing religious Christians because of cake-baking preferences. There's only one side forcing religious people to essentially denounce their religious convictions or else they will have their children taken away by the state. There's only one side that doesn't believe in 'live and let live'.

The political left needs to be forced, kicking and screaming back to some semblance of political civility. Kicking and screaming. And the crybabies have to be forced into behaving properly.

Here's video number two! There's The Face!!!!


The political left will not acknowledge that it is responsible for this because they don't see violence as bad. They don't think they are being violent. For them, violence from left to right is a good thing. They like it, and Mark is right, they are turned on by it.

Anyone who says that 'both sides' need to be introspective and work for "unity" is misguided and actually quite deeply sinister. A conservative that says that is not worth their salt. It's an obfuscation of reality, it's a mealy-mouthed way of throwing in the towel because you want "people" to "like" you (a highly overrated and silly goal).

This is the moral equivalent of paying protection money. And I think we all know how that ends up working out.

Stop paying protection money and stop trying to be popular!

You're welcome!

What we need to do is to force these people, these violent, lying, scumbag thugs, into the civil behaviour that is incumbent upon a citizen of a democracy. We cannot ask for this to happen. Please oh pretty please/unity/blah blah/both sides is not going to cut it, cupcakes.

We cannot wait for this to happen, we have to make it happen. Demand civility. We have to make it impossible for them to behave badly and in a lawless fashion. They are bullies.

Mark is right that there is a blood excitement on the part of the left. This is clearly something that the political left has in common with the jihad. Another factor of the torrid, nihilistic romance between the two. Til death to they part. Ours! Screw that!

Believe the jihadis, they will always tell you the truth. Do not believe the Western "leaders"who are throwing our children to the (lone) wolves.

Here are some more thoughts for you to consider as the Western world declines:

"A Wake Up Call For British Jews"

Only if they are ready to be woken. 

"The time has come to speak plainly and face reality."

"As far as British Jews are concerned these elections, which almost brought to power an outright anti-Semite and friend of terrorists, means that the red line has been crossed."

"Many in the U.K. view the country's Jews as pariahs. The anti-Israel rhetoric has reached unprecedented levels both in street demonstrations and at the universities where many Jewish students conceal their Jewish identity and in some cases, even display hostility toward Israel to curry favor. Schools, synagogues and other Jewish communal venues require armed guards and the situation will only deteriorate with time."

"All committed Jews should ask themselves whether, in this climate of intensifying hostility, they should consider coming to Israel or at least encourage their children to immigrate, so that they can openly take pride in their Jewish heritage without fear. The majority are likely to remain, but some of the most committed will hopefully consider making Aliyah."

"This needs to be a wake-up call."

Who Is Watching the Watchmen?

From the Netherlands.

Another member of the security apparatus protecting Geert Wilders is suspected of corruption and leaking information to criminals (and who knows-maybe terrorists).

There's a whole lot of information here.

Furthermore, as Geer Wilders himself notes: 

"If I can no longer blindly trust the Service that must protect me, I can no longer function. That is unacceptable", he tweeted at Prime Minister Mark Rutte.

That seems to be the plan, not an accident or incompetence. 

It's probably"unacceptable" to discuss the fact that it would behoove the security forces to consider what the chances are that a security officer of Moroccan descent would be entirely devoid of emotion with regard to protecting Geert Wilders in particular. That's a legitimate issue.

Mark Steyn: The Seduction of Violence

Mark Steyn aired this a day before the shootings in America. The left has always romanced violence.

"Something odd and deeply disturbing is going on here...."

Mark refers to Andrew Bolt, Robert Spencer and Middlebury College.

I saw this earlier today as well. 

"This is not a healthy trend." 

As Mark says: if you don't want to have the debate, you're the fascist."

Absolutely. Watch this whole clip. Interesting that he quotes Alain Finkielkraut because a lot of highly assimilated French Jewish intellectuals are very slow to come to this conclusion (see "BHL").

French Jews need to leave France. With suitcases and not in coffins.

The Jews of Arab Lands: "I Left Iraq, But Iraq Never Left Me"

This is excellent.

Kudos to Ha'aretz and also to the Sephardi Voices project. I am really impressed.

Not a lot of people know about the forced exodus of Jews from Arab lands. That was the real "nakba".

My in-laws were forced out of Iran.

One of my best friends in Israel (hi Vera, I love you) is an Iraqi Jew. She has memories of her happy childhood, her father was a lawyer and very high ranking policy-maker and legal advisor in the government. They had a large house with a courtyard fountain, and several domestic servants.

When the pogroms against the Jews began, she remembers the police coming in and screaming at her family that they could take one suitcase of stuff with them. They were then thrown in jail. She was around four or five years old at the time. Miraculously, they made it to Israel, but were not able to take any valuables, sell their house or take any money or jewelry out of Iraq. They got out with their one suitcase each and their lives. They were lucky because the Iraqis were absolute savages toward the Jews. Their blood-lust was really rabid and they had a sadistic, murderous rage that was very Nazi in spirit and practice.

Her father never really recovered from the trauma of being catapulted into Israel and demoted socially and economically.

I know a lot of Jews from Muslim countries and the stories are all kind of different but all the same. Whether Sephardic or Ashkenazi the Jews were hunted. Hunted like animals. Now we have a state of our own. Times have changed. The former hunters cannot exterminate us as they did before. They can cause local damage to many families but they have no genocidal possibilities anymore, no matter their genocidal aspirations. The lesson of the Farhud and the Holocaust is that Jews need their own state, army and superior weaponry and firepower to match their superior brainpower.

It's also a good time to note that the countries that murdered and chased out their Jews are not exactly bastions of freedom and happiness and prosperity. They are disgusting Third World crapholes festering with jihad. The lesson unlearned by Muslim countries is currently being unlearned once again by Europe. Enjoy your post-Jewish existence.

Neither of these places deserves Jews. 

They will reap what they have sown and it's going to get much worse before anything gets better-if that's even possible (I doubt it).

KRENK ALERT!!!! Do You Sneeze When You See the Sun?

YES! 

OMG finally the answer to another one of my dumb krenks.

See more about "krenk" here:

“Krenk” is another word I listed in the title to this post. It means, “Illness, malaise, adj. sick.” It’s not a word typically heard mixed with English, so it’s hard to know how someone would use it, but here’s an example in Yiddish: “ikh bin nu krenk.” This is very similar to German, again, because “krank” means “sick” in German, and the sentence I included as an example is close to the German sentence, “Ich bin sehr krank.” (In fact, I typed in “I am so sick” into an English-Yiddish translator, and voila. Or should I say: “oysnemen!” Which apparently means “success.” That is a word that is not very closely related to English or German.)"

Krenk is actually more like a weird thing that you have. It's not really used as "illness", more like just one of those things that you have, mostly benign but sort of weird stuff. Like, I have weird ridges on my nails, that's one of my krenks. 

It's actually just a glorious word that has no exact translation into English but if you use it enough and if you have krenks (and FOR REAL AND NOT FOR JOKING who doesn't), you'll get used to it and use it right. 

OK I am cracking myself up right now. 

(Another one of my krenks...) 


Europe: Choosing Suicide

Indeed. 

More European death watch articles for your reading "pleasure":

A reminder to the left (old article): you can have a liberal, sexually diverse society OR sharia. Pick one. You're welcome.

The Great Douglas Murray asks:

"When did British voters start rewarding antisemitism?" 

He notes:

"One of the interesting things about ‘diversity’ is that it allows almost anything to happen."

Another (unintended???) consequence of CELEBRATE DIVERSITY in Europe is that we can't talk about the oldest hate anymore. 

Paranoid leftist Jews get their panties in a wad about Holocaust denial. Wrong battle my bungle-brained bubbalehs. 


You know who is your master?

You know what the biggest problems are? 

The ones that Big Shut Up wants ban from discussion. 

You know who is in charge? 

The people that you're not "allowed" to joke about or to make fun of. 

In the absence of real conversation there can only be echo chambers and propaganda. 

That is a terrible way to live, but that's the road we are travelling on. 

You know when a society is in its death throes? 

When it "celebrates" the "diversity" of the slaughtered masses. Shame on this wretched, wicked woman. This is not a "proud" story, it's a disgraceful white flag and the literal equivalent of pissing on the victims' graves while fresh earth has not even settled on their coffins. Screw this shameful, sinister attitude. And screw all the "silver lining" people.

Calling It A Night

Today it was hard to shake some bad juju.

I was really upset by something that was not my personal problem. Normally, I don't let other people's issues, or other people live in my head rent free.

But for the past day, I've been unable to shake my upset about a person that I know peripherally who had a very disabled son that passed away. This particular parent never mistreated the child, but was never terribly hands-on with the child. The child was always farmed out to a caregiver that I believe loved him more than his own mother. So while the biological mother was never abusive, she seemed to have been unloving. There was always sort of an indifferent, benign but cold tolerance to having a disabled child.

I happened upon this person's Facebook profile (really by accident, I saw that we had a mutual friend) and I noticed that there wasn't a single photograph of the disabled, now deceased child. There were lots of vanity pictures, and pictures of the other children but not a single one of the deceased child, not a single one, G-d rest his soul. The parent looked really happy, radiant, and it was like the child had been erased off the face of the earth, like he had never existed.

I cannot really explain how my heart has been aching over this. As I say, I am fully aware on a rational level that this is not my friend or relative, not my problem and therefore should not be my concern. But my heart is really heavy. I did cry a few tears over this.

Then, earlier this evening, we had another iPad calamity in my household as my own special needs son dropped the iPad, glass down, right from the second floor onto the hardwood main floor. It apparently wasn't in the "right" place, so he wanted it out of the "wrong" place. I'm not upset at all about the money that it will cost to fix it. The upsetting thing is that he doesn't understand what he did, he didn't have the capacity to know not to do such a thing. I'm really struggling with that. This is my journey of grief. Waning for the most part, imperceptible at other times and then acutely painful, heavy and sad at others.

Later this same evening, while doing the dishes, I broke a glass. In Jewish tradition, when you break a glass or dish, you say "Mazel Tov", literally 'good fortune', the idea being that whew-it's just a thing and not a person that suffered. I reminded myself of this, muttered Mazel Tov under my breath and went to fix myself a cup of tea with fresh mint. I should have poured a stronger libation, but I've never been a drinker. I've always been more of a "fooder" and a schmoozer.

This day needs to be put to bed with all of its highlights and low moments. It is darkest before the dawn, but part of the darkness of disability parenting is (grudgingly) accepting the reality of the situation, and in my case, the inevitability-barring an unforeseen miracle-that my disabled child will never be independent in any way. It's a very, tough pill to swallow. That my nest will never be empty remains one of the big questions and challenges of my life, as I try to remind myself to ask not 'why me and my child' but rather 'why not me and my child' and double up my efforts to trust in G-d, and his plans and his reasons for ours really is not to wonder why.

And why should America even have a Muslim child bride problem?

"By contrast, France has a great amount of Islam and a great amount of Islamic terror."

"To most people, it would seem obvious — in the words of Donatella Versace — that “more is more”."

"Because although many communities are capable of producing extremists, only Islamic communities produce Islamic extremists."

(PS: I actually think the 'more is more' quote comes from Dolly Parton, who I believe said something to the effect of 'why do people always say less is more, less is less and more is more'.)

And this line is just a ZINGER. Bravo: 

"Don’t look back in anger, just forward in blind, bovine hope."


OH MAH GAWD I'M DYING.




"Let's Start Talking About Islam" (Read the Whole Thing)

That's the problem! DUH.

Nobody wants to do so. 

"Islam now enjoys the same kind of moral protection from blasphemy and ridicule that Christianity once (wrongly) enjoyed. All last week, for example, I received furious emails and messages in response to two articles I wrote about the Manchester attack, telling me I was wrong to defend the use of the phrase ‘Islamist extremism’. That term has an Islamophobic bent to it, we’re told. It demeans Islam and its adherents by suggesting they have something to do with terrorism. You should just say ‘extremism’, not ‘Islamist extremism’. Don’t ever name the extremism, don’t label it, because you might hurt people’s feelings."

"This is why our political leaders so rarely use the terms Islamism, radical Islam and Islamic terrorism: because they want to avoid offending Islam and also because they don’t want to stir up what they view as the public’s bovine, hateful prejudices. This censorious privilege is not extended to any other religion."

"This censorious flattery of Islam is, in my view, a key contributor to the violence we have seen in recent years. Because when you constantly tell people that any mockery of their religion is tantamount to a crime, is vile and racist and unacceptable, you actively invite them, encourage them in fact, to become intolerant. You license their intolerance. You inflame their violent contempt for anyone who questions their dogmas. You provide a moral justification for their desire to punish those who insult their religion."

British Police Are Sitting Ducks

As is the rest of the civilian populace.

Here’s a massive link dump for you!

These are specially hand-picked ARTISAN LINKS. Yeah, that’s the ticket, artisan!

My Latest in The Jerusalem Post: Shavuot, Hag Shiluv-A Festival of Inclusion

Let me know what you think!

"Actions matter; it is through the practice of an action that one inevitably begins to understand the action. Judaism then, seen through this lens, was from its very origins a religion of doing. The Israelites no doubt talked and talked amongst themselves (imagine how many opinions that many Jews would have), but what they brought to the table was their pledge to God that they would act according to His laws first and foremost."

"Na’aseh v’nishma can also be seen as the ultimate Jewish model for inclusion."

Jewish Holiday Time: Shavuot

Tuesday evening is the start of the Jewish holiday of Shavuot. In Israel it is celebrated for one day and in the Diaspora for two days.

Shavuot is a multifaceted holiday. Primarily, it marks the giving of the Torah to the Jewish people by G-d. It is when we received the Ten Commandments. It is also when we read the Book of Ruth, and it is the anniversary of the death of King David. This holiday has a lot of different names because there are so many important facets of the holiday. If you know the story of Ruth, you'll know she was a Moabite, from a very high level family who gave everything up to marry Boaz, and join the Jewish people. It's quite an amazing love story and explicitly shows how Jews are supposed to treat converts, with love and respect and affection. For Ruth's sincerity and love of the Jewish people she was "rewarded" with being the woman from whom King David is descended. Quite a magnificent honour and so well deserved. I find the whole story so moving.

I remember a few years ago being in Israel and needing some water for one of my kids. We were in the Old City at the time and my husband said, oh-don't worry, we can just stop at King David's tomb, they have a fountain there.

OH YEAH OK LET'S JUST STOP AT KING DAVID'S TOMB LIKE THAT IS THE MOST REGULAR THING IN THE WORLD EVER.

Can you imagine?

But I digress:

The other amazing part of the holiday is that it is when the Jewish people said "na'aseh v'nishma." That means "we will do, and then we will understand". It's a very interesting concept in Judaism for which there is much, much commentary.

Traditionally, Jews stay up learning Torah the entire night of Shavuot and the holiday is also marked by eating dairy foods (and there are a number of reasons for this as well).

I've made a truly spectacular cheesecake in honour of Shavuot and I have a piece coming out in The Jerusalem Post tomorrow. I hope to have a link to post tomorrow, I'm really proud of the piece.

In the meantime if you would like to read more about Shavuot here are some links:

Daniel Greenfield: The War For Jerusalem

This is absolutely brilliant. 

It's lyrical and truthful. Mr. Greenfield's prose simply soars.

I have read this essay at least three times already, as if it was poetry.

Too good to pull out a favourite part. I love the whole thing.

Do yourself a favour and read this magnificent love letter to Jerusalem and the Jewish people.

Magnificent.

The UK Is Screwed: Respect Terrorists Edition

SCREWED. 

Crushing on the Crushers: Why Do Intellectuals Fall in Love With Murderers and Thugs?

Good question!

Partly this:

"...the penetrating clear-sightedness and benevolence toward humanity that intellectuals often claim for themselves by comparison with the benightedness of the rest of the population is at least sometimes—and maybe often or always—self-serving and mythical."

"The special ability to see beyond appearances that intellectuals like to congratulate themselves for possessing is, indeed, their raison d’être: for if they cannot perceive what others cannot perceive, what is their role? Whereas the simple-minded see in a massacre of priests only a massacre of priests, for example, intellectuals discern in it the operation of the dialectic of history, the imagined future denouement of which is more real to them than the actual deaths themselves, merely eggshells on the way to the omelette."

Plus, there is the idea that this kind of fantasy is a type of religious belief for the secular, godless, leftist masses. That's definitely something I have considered over the years. Leftism is a religion/cult. 

Ahh, The Joys and Exquisite Beauty of "Danish" Culture

G7 Fashion Update

In summary, Melania is a hottie with great taste. 

I mean for real and not for joking, that purple dress in Saudi Arabia??? Just SHUT UP.

And how about the black outfit with the gold belt? Gazonga. Also, the brown shirt-style casual dress, and the leather suit. Seriously, she's really rocking it.

Marcon's grandmother looks really stiff and awkward.

Kathy Shaidle made me promise that if she dresses like that when she's geriatric, to please kill her. I had to oblige. What are friends for? I know she would do the same for me if I ever start wearing those horrible Menopause Outfits that women of a certain age are prone to wear. I shan't go into details here.

Lady! Mrs. Marconrobinson! Yoo hoo!

You're almost a hundred years old, no knees, please. Are you sure you're French?!?!?!

This is oh la lawful...

The award for most dour goes to Mrs. Caliphate, if I were here I would have hidden in the back row. Did the photographer put her beside Melania on purpose for added comparison cruelty?

But getting back to Mrs. Caliphate, oh but what a floozy! I can see not only her face, that slut, but also her hands. HARAM HARAM HARAM!!!

Queen Mathilde looks absolutely lovely. Totally age appropriate and tasteful.

That is all

The Murder of Sarah Halimi and the Media Silence

French Jews need to pack up, or they too, will leave in coffins.

Denial Still Flows Over Londanistan

Indeed it does. 

"Britain is in denial. Having allowed the country to turn into a global hub of the Islamic jihad without apparently giving it a second thought, the British establishment is still failing even now — despite the wake-up calls of both 9/11 and the London bomb attacks of 2005 — to acknowledge what it is actually facing and take the appropriate action. Instead, it is deep into a policy of appeasement of the phenomenon that threatens it, throwing sops to both radical Islamism and the Muslim community in a panic-stricken attempt to curry favour and buy off the chances of any further attacks."

"This disastrous policy ignores the first law of terrorism which is that it preys on weakness. The only way to defeat it is through strength — the strength of a response based on absolute consistency and moral integrity, which arises in turn from the strength of belief in the values that are being defended. By choosing instead the path of least resistance, Britain is advertising its fundamental weakness and is thus not only greatly enhancing the danger to itself but is also enfeebling the alliance in the defence of the west."

"Britain has a long and inglorious history of appeasing terrorism, thus bringing true the aphorism in which its ruling class so cynically believes that ‘terrorism works’. Now, however, this dubious national trait has been cemented even more firmly into the national psyche by the governing doctrine of multiculturalism, which has made it all but impossible even to acknowledge that this is a problem rooted within the religion of a particular minority community."

Enabling Murder

This is an excellent essay. 

Read the whole thing.

An excerpt:

"Damn these jihadist murderers of children. And damn the politicians who have, in many cases, helped make these murders possible but who are quick, this time and every time, to serve up empty declarations of “solidarity”even as the bodies of innocents are still being counted."

"Meaningless words, all of them. But Angela Merkel takes the cake: “People in the UK can rest assured that Germany stands shoulder to shoulder with them.” Well, isn’t that . . . reassuring. In what way do such words help anybody to “rest assured” of anything? In any case, how dare she? This, after all, is the woman who opened the floodgates—the woman who, out of some twisted sense of German historical guilt, put European children in danger by inviting into the continent masses of unvetted people from the very part of the world where this monstrous evil has its roots."

The Death of Europe in One Convenient Paragraph


The Manchester bomber was a member of a radical mosque that was originally the “Albert Park Methodist Chapel”. The church opened its doors in 1883 before closing in 1962 and later being converted into a mosque.

Perhaps though, Europe deserves to die. 

Yes. It appears so. 

Mark Steyn: Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Do you need a change of pace?

They say that music soothes the savage beast, so no wonder the Ayatollah Khomeni once declared a fatwa on music, saying that it was haram! 

Music is quite glorious for all living things and touches deep, limbic places in the human brain and sentimental memory places in the human soul.

So I want to share this absolutely magnificent essay from Mark Steyn about the song Somewhere Over the Rainbow. 

The essay itself was prompted by an e-mail written to Mark, referencing a Times of Israel piece written by my friend Simcha Jacobovici.

Apparently, Mark Steyn and Simcha have a mutual friend! The plot thickens!

But I digress. 

The point of my own post is simply to share this lovely essay with you, and actually also to introduce you to an arrangement of the song that I'm sure you've never heard unless you saw it here on my blog previously, but that you will never forget. It's by Kay Wilson, a fine jazz musician, licensed tour guide in Israel and a British-Israeli survivor of a barbaric Palestinian terror attack that killed her friend Kristine Luken. 

I find Kay's arrangement haunting, but life-affirming and sad at the same time. Kay and I are Facebook friends and I hope we can meet someday in person.

Anyway, I feel extremely blessed to know such fine humans as Kay and Simcha and Mark Steyn.

I'm primarily a badass history and politics geek on the internet, but I'm actually an artsy, creative type with a soft spot for music and dance. Gives me Teh Feeeeelzzzz.

Here's to beautiful music and good friends and to never forgetting, never forgiving those who murder our loved ones. Not ever. Ever.

Manchester Ignited

When I first heard about the latest terrorist atrocity in Manchester, I said that it reminded me of the Dolphinarium bombing in Israel.

Does anyone remember the Israeli teenagers who were slaughtered at the Dolphinarium. I sure do, and I sure remember one writing in Hebrew, 'defiantly', lo nafsik lirkod, we will not stop dancing.

At the time I remember being slightly haunted and slightly bothered by that sentiment, though I couldn't really articulate why. But the more I think about it, the more I realize that with this enemy, there is actually no such thing as defiance.

In the Second World War individuals did undertake acts of defiance on a personal level, and at very great risk. They defied their Nazi tormentors, they defied orders, they defied the command to die, they had babies, they married and they became part of the resistance among other acts of defiance large and small.

But the meaning of defiance is now convoluted and has absolutely no meaning with respect to Islamic terrorism. It is not "defiant" to just go about merely living our lives. It is not an act of defiance to merely go on living (a semblance of living of course because you are living as the living dead) when they slaughter our friends and families. No "defiant" threat or promise means anything to these barbarians. The mentality is so convoluted, so nihilistic and so pro-death that our rather modest and actually pathetic Western ideas of defiance now are laughable to them, as they should be laughable to us.

Mark Steyn has some very sober and salient commentary here about the (most recent) Manchester attack. 

He mentions the concept of defiance, and I think we're on the same page. There's another element other than the No Speak Islam issue.

How about the fact that it is our murderers who are currently always the "real" victims, how about the never-ending and pathetic and sinister attempt to turn themselves into the "real" Jews and the Jews into the "real" Nazis. We have been conditioned to accept these lies wholesale, and that is part of the problem and is like a match that lights our collective funeral pyres.

Jews are the new Jews.

Sorry not sorry. If anything, it's the Islamic terrorists of today who are the intellectual, tactical and philosophical heirs of the Nazis.

I'm angry. I'm angry at all the gutless, despicable politicians who are so afraid to say Islamic terror. I'm really mad that the political left is married to Western destruction. I'm so sick of it all.

Our "leaders" need to grow a spine. We need to force them to do the right thing or get them to get the hell out of elected office. We need to use real words about real problems. We need to reject the lies. We need to tell the truth, to ourselves, to our children and we need to force others to do the same.

We need to make this evil crap impossible to implement. Look at the timing. We need to push this back:




We need to make this impossible. We need to force our employees in government to do the right thing and stop trying to murder the truth tellers instead of the actual barbarian murderers.

We need to stop Tweeting pictures like this. This picture makes me vomit. These kool-aid drinking officers have to get some self-respect. Stop the flowers and and the teddy bears and start fighting evil, dammit.

This is not a "touching" picture, it's a joke. Our enemies laugh in our faces. This is weakness, it's pathetic.

We need more of this. This is from Kay Wilson, a British-Israeli terror survivor who had a machete plunged into her body more than 20 times by a savage Palestinian, who also murdered her non-Jewish friend.

We need more of this, more pushback of the obscene attitudes of law enforcement officials who have abdicated their entire and only raison d'être in favour of drinking the multicultural, dhimmi kool-aid and pleasing their leftist political masters and the encroaching jihad.



Then we have disgusting cretins such as Doug Saunders not only peddling obfuscations about the "European" origins of these terrorists, but also digging out a former security official who has the nerve to compare the current British security forces to the communist secret police.

Sinister and pathetic.

I'll tell you some things that I don't care about. I don't care a whit about the hypothetical backlash against Muslims that never materializes. In fact, if you care about that, I don't care about you-period.

I don't care about whether it was a lone wolf or a pack of wolves. I don't care if he or she had mental health issues, liked gardening or Tim Hortons. I don't care if he or she is a revert. I don't care what skin colour they have. I don't care if they are married or not. I don't care about world class monuments going dark (shame on them all for their useless virtue signalling of surrender).

I am tired of hearing that these savages are "known to police". The security forces think somehow that makes it all better when in fact, it makes it much, much worse and makes our murderers laugh  at us all the more robustly.

When these events happen, it is not acceptable to feel bad, preen and then go back to sleep. We require constant vigilance and muscle right now-political and intellectual. Our whole civilization is going wobbly.

Last night I watched my children fall asleep and smelled their fresh pyjamas in their darkened rooms and watched until they were breathing rhythmically. I couldn't tear my eyes away or move. Paralyzed with emotion, guarding over them, praying, thinking. Why do we fight? Why must we? That's why.

My friends: 

Be extravagant in expressing your love, militant in your protection, unapologetic of your strength and fearless in your approach to guarding our superior way of life before it's too late.

This Is Pathetic, Sad and Terrible and the Future of the West

Yuck. 

Trump In Saudi Arabia

I heard that Trump gave a corker of a speech in the Magic Kingdom so I looked up the whole transcript.

There's lots of really nice kick-ass ISH bits, but the only small problem is that actually and HELLO SAUDI ARABIA IS THE PROBLEM (as well as Iran).

So, I'm not riding the Trump Train on this one.

The good parts are that Melania and Ivanka did not wear veils and I do love the idea of the Saudis having to respect Jews on Saudi soil-that part is awesome. Like seriously Jewlicious.

I don't like that one of the frum members of Trump's entourage reportedly had to eat crackers and fruit for Shabbat. That's just classless. They could have brought some proper food for the guy on the plane and planned for that guy (and for Jared and Ivanka et al). I mean, it's not like there's a kosher restaurant in Riyadh or a local Chabad AMIRITE????

But I digress. So, a few good bits, definitely less submission than Obama but Saudi Arabia is a big problem AHEM 9/11 AHEM COUGH COUGH (and yes, I know the Saudis are also scared sh$tless about the nutty Iranians and that has made them cold, calculated Machiavellian "friends" with Israel.

Still, respect and suspect.

The Israel part of the trip will be interesting as well.


This Is Awesome And Yes, I Have a Weird Sense of Humour

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Some of Us Never Thought it Was a "Joke"

Encroachments on liberty and freedom of thought and expression are never a "joke". 


The Great Kurt Schlichter Is Amazing Once Again!

Just one fabulous column after another I can barely keep up!

Schlichter explains very slowly what is going on in America.

It's a slow coup. 

BUT: And here's the big "BUT". Trump is not helping things at all with the sloppy communications, not finding out where the leaks are coming from, and his Twitter feed is really not helping. He needs to stop making it worse. Just stop. Delegate authority, and stop the slop.

"This is a concentrated, coordinated effort by elite insiders to take down not this president – Trump’s not the point here – but to take down us, the normal American they seek to rule. Someone came to Washington who wasn’t part of the club, and that’s intolerable. So they are desperate to expel him, and by extension, us."

"Every day will be a crisis, every action he takes will be the worst thing that has ever happened, and every step towards keeping his promises a crime."

David P. Goldman agrees. 

Chemistry! One of My Absolute Favourite Topics In the World

I think I have to write a whole book about chemistry.

Not laboratory chemistry but people chemistry.

I find it absolutely riveting. I love pondering chemistry between friends, between like minds-you know when there is that click, and you feel it in your brain or your heart? What is it about someone that makes that click happen, and why is it exclusive to those two people at that time? Isn't it fascinating how someone can make sparks fly in one person and be a complete turn-off to someone else?

I could spend hours discussing this topic. I just love it.

So there are different kinds of chemistry of course, there's the male-female kind but that's just one kind, there is also the friendship  kind, where you know in a nanosecond that you are going to be friends with someone forever-no matter where you are in the world and no matter what you go through in your life.

Anyway, here's a piece here that I spotted on Instapundit, and it's more about male-female chemistry. 

I do think the sense of smell is vastly underestimated when it comes to relations, impressions and particularly with respect to memory.

Daniel Greenfield: Nakbacide

This essay is outstanding. 

Every single thought is clear, articulate and contains a combination of Jewish intellectuality and rigour that is so rare nowadays.

You have to read the whole thing.

I really hope that this particular piece goes far and broad. I hope that Trump's closest policy makers read it. I hope they are reading Caroline Glick as well.

But this essay pretty much explains the entire conflict with Israel in a nutshell. Not a real estate issue, not a political issues: a religious war with no "solution".

It's so good, G-d bless Daniel Greenfield. Wishing him many long, productive and healthy years of prophetic, poetic writing. I actually laughed out loud at the end, because the ending is just perfect. It's so perfect, but I won't wreck it for you. Read the whole essay top to bottom. Read the whole essay a few times actually. It's like music.

"The ugly truth of the Nakba is that it blunted the nationalistic ambitions of Arab Muslims who, like ISIS, dreamed of replacing the Ottoman Empire with an Islamic State. Losing a war to a European world power wouldn't have hurt as much as losing a war to a despised regional minority. A people whose name is an insult in the mouth of every Muslim."

"Yahood. Lower than a dog. Yahood. Transformed into apes and pigs in the Koran. Yahood. Second class citizens in every Muslim country. Who somehow beat back seven Muslim armies and took back their lands that had been conquered by the Caliphs."

"But in Muslim culture time never passes. The words, "You Lost a War, Get Over It", have no meaning."

Mark Steyn: The Poisoning of Robert Spencer

In case you missed this post by Mark Steyn, you must read it in its entirety now. 

This is just another example of the torrid love affair between the political left and Islam. Both end ultimately in nihilism and that's one of the reasons they get along so well.

But as a commentator on Katie Hopkins Twitter feed put it recently "feminism (and intersectionality) ends at Islam's doorstep" and certainly that can be said of all of political leftism as well.

All of the left, for all its bluster, ends at Islam's doorstep where it takes off its shoes and defers to its masters.

That is why there is no leftist outcry over grooming gangs in the UK, about child rape by migrants in Europe, no outcry by western feminists about Female Genital Mutilation.

These groups also meet at Jew Hate Junction and societies that take the antisemitic road and end up at that junction never fare well. They actually don't survive  or thrive and they really don't deserve to.

He notes:

"...after two generations of social engineering, of the substitution of attitudes for education, it would require too much effort to equip yourself to argue against the difficult questions a man such as Robert Spencer raises. It's literally easier to kill him."

"Not yet in the blood-lusting exultant scimitar-raising style of the decapitators of French priests. But just through whatever you've got in your stash that might ensure he'll be flying out of Reykjavik by the handles. So for the moment there is still a continuum. But it's narrowing, and will narrow still."

I think Mark Steyn is being too kind. I think the blood lust is build right into the DNA of the political left as well. History demonstrates that very, very clearly.  

The jihadists may be the ones doing the actual slicing, but the political left does everything else to support this thuggery and nihilism. They fund it, organize it, vote it and cheer it on in every which way. 

These BFFs hate the west, they loathe Western civilization and no, they will not ever rest or ever go away. 

And it's not just the spiritual vacuum they are filling in this precious world of ours, it's our physical space as well. 

Stop feeling helpless and get mad. 

Hug all your loved ones and lead the charge. 

Shabbat Shalom. 


The Days Are Long and Busy

A few readers have checked in lately just to say hello and see if everything is OK with me, so thank you.

Everything is OK it's just hard to "feed" the blog while I work full time at a day job, do freelance where and where I can and be a mom and wife, and especially with the caregiving responsibilities for my special needs son which are quite intensive. So it's work Monday to Friday, the day starts at 5:45 a.m to get everything ready and everyone out the door by 7:30 and then a long commute each way, dinner, clean up, homework, showers and by the time I blink and it's quiet it's already about 10:00 p.m.

Weekends are Shabbat, no no writing or computer, and then Sundays mostly with my special needs kiddo which doesn't allow for that much uninterrupted writing time.

I'm not complaining, busy people always have time, but there are TONS of things I'd like to write about but I just can't squeeze much more into my days.

Perhaps that will change someday!
