NPR Erases Israel From Map Of Middle Eastby Shifra on January 25, 2016
Blatant anti-Israel bias like this is why NPR is referred to as ‘National Palestine Radio’ in my ‘hood. Via Jerusalem Post: In an article published on National Public Radio’s (NPR) website Monday, a map of the Middle East failed to include Israel, labeling Palestine in its place. The map was an illustration accompanying the article”What Are You Afraid Of In 2016? Globetrotters Share Their Fears.” The article referenced travelers’ fears of Islamic radicalization and extremism in the region. Immediately following the publication, the website’s comment section was flooded with criticism from readers and journalists who questioned the online publication’s decision to use an illustration of this nature. As a result of the abundance of complaints, NPR removed the photo and...
Liberal Idiocy In Action: Folk Singer Hopes Peace Concert Will Win Over ISISby Shifra on January 13, 2016
Never heard of this dude before, but I am willing to bet he voted For Obama…twice. Via Fox News: An Oregon folk singer plans to leave next week to serenade the Islamic State, and he intends to bring the black-clad barbarians a prayerful message of peace — despite a warning from the State Department that his life could be in danger. James Twyman, of Portland, Ore., told FoxNews.com he feels a “calling” and believes he can soften the hearts of the Islamist army known for beheading Westerners, throwing gays off of buildings and summarily executing innocent women and children. “It’s going to be pretty powerful,” Twyman said, referring to his plan to have those attending and others around the world...
Video: Obama Calls Concern About Gov’t Tyranny A ‘Conspiracy Theory’by Shifra on January 8, 2016
Ya know, like those dolts back during the American Revolution, who probably had too much time on their hands, getting all worked up about some distant King. Via Washington Examiner: President Obama said Thursday night that conspiracy theorists have perpetuated a completely false narrative that every time he suggests tightening gun laws, he really wants to prevent all Americans from owning firearms. “Yes, it is fair to call it a conspiracy,” Obama said after being challenged by CNN host Anderson Cooper, who moderated the network’s “town hall” on gun violence in Virginia. “What are you saying?” Obama pressed after Cooper seemed to suggest it may be true. “Are you suggesting … the notion that we are creating a plot to...
Next Thanksgiving, Skip The Turkey, Eat Tofu. Because… Global Warming!by Shifra on November 29, 2015
Global warming, er, climate change, er, global climate disruption…well, you know what I mean, is responsible for the creation of ISIS, according to John Kerry. It has also been blamed as the cause of… Hitler. And it has also been blamed for many other horrors, such as truffle shortage, walrus stampedes, itchier poison ivy, and sour grapes. So, if you are a concerned citizen of the world, and do not wish to contribute to the rise of another Hitler, or the ceasing of blackbirds singing, then you will consider serving tofu instead of turkey at the next Thanksgiving. Via CBS News: H/T Right Scoop ….Livestock is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, adding about the same amount of emissions...
Media Bias Alert: CNN Erases Israel From The Mapby Shifra on November 25, 2015
Ignorance/stupidity, or yet another example of leftwing Jew-hatred? Via Honest Reporting: UPDATE Following the publication of this post and the complaints of many HonestReporting subscribers, CNN has removed the map in question and replaced it with an image of the aftermath of a Syrian airstrike in Aleppo. While we question how the error occurred at all, nonetheless we commend CNN for taking prompt action. * * * As the year draws to a close, CNN Money looks ahead focusing on “Beyond ISIS: 2016’s scariest geopolitical hot spots.” Unsurprisingly, Syria and the Middle East features. But look at the map above that CNN has chosen to accompany the text. Israel has been wiped from the map and instead replaced with “Palestina,”...
Rewriting History: Arabs Claim Jewish Western Wall Is Part Of Al Aqsa Mosqueby Shifra on October 19, 2015
First, we have the myth of the “Palestinians,” as the Arabs want the world to believe that the Jews ‘stole’ the land from the ‘Palestinian nation.’ Just for the record, there was never a Palestinian nation; Jews who lived in the land before the creation of the State of Israel in 1948 were called Palestinians. Now we have another myth: The Western Wall in Jerusalem, a Jewish holy site, is now…part of the Al Aqsa Mosque compound? A very brief history leading up to the recent Arab violence: There has been much talk on the news, lately, about the “Temple Mount.” This area, according to Jewish tradition, is the site of the Biblical Mt. Moriah (where Abraham proved his willingness...
Oops: TV Station Uses Nazi Graphic In Jewish Holiday ‘Yom Kippur’ Segmentby Shifra on September 24, 2015
Oy Vey. Happy…Holocaust? Via JTA: A Chicago news station used a graphic of a yellow badge, like those the Nazis forced Jews to wear during the Holocaust, to illustrate its report on the start of Yom Kippur. WGN-TV aired the report on Tuesday night, hours into the Jewish Day of Atonement. The badge — shaped like the Star of David and featuring the word “Jude,” German for “Jew” — appeared atop concentration-camp-uniform stripes, and above the caption “Yom Kippur.” WGN sought atonement for the graphic on Wednesday. The anchor who delivered the the Yom Kippur report said on air: “Major correction tonight: We couldn’t see this from the set here, but in our story about Yom Kippur we apparently used...
Obama Condemns ‘Body Parts Harvesting’… In Africaby Shifra on August 3, 2015
POTUS met with young African leaders today, and spoke forcefully against the killing of others to harvest body parts in Africa. But speaking out against Planned Parenthood’s selling of baby body parts in the U.S.A.? Not so much… Via CNS News: President Barack Obama told a group of young African leaders on Monday that killing others to harvest body parts was a “foolish tradition.” At the Young African Leaders Initiative summit in Washington D.C., President Obama was asked about the killing of Albinos in Africa and the harvesting of their body parts for ritual purposes…. Obama condemned the practice as “foolish traditions.” “When I was in Africa, I said, there are important traditions and folkways that need to be respected...
Poll: Israel Losing Support Among U.S. Democratsby Shifra on July 6, 2015
Pollster Frank Luntz has found that although “Israel has won the hearts and minds of Republicans,” the Democrats have become more anti-Israel, calling the Jewish state “racist” and “unwilling to make peace with its neighbors.” Luntz says he was shocked at his findings. But didn’t he remember how “Jerusalem” and “God” were booed at the Democrat Convention in 2012? Via Times of Israel: Three quarters of highly educated, high income, publicly active US Democrats — the so-called “opinion elites” — believe Israel has too much influence on US foreign policy, almost half of them consider Israel to be a racist country, and fewer than half of them believe that Israel wants peace with its neighbors. These are among the findings...
US Embassy Celebrates 4th Of July On June 4th Out Of Respect For Ramadanby Shifra on June 11, 2015
The US embassy in Jakarata, Indonesia, celebrated American Independence Day on June 4th, to avoid the month-long Muslim fast of Ramadan, which begins June 17th. And, this year’s “June 4th” theme was “go green,” in celebration of green energy. So, hope you had a ‘Happy Green June 4th,’ everyone! And, not that anyone I know really cared, but I do recall that the WH held a Chanukah party two weeks early in 2011 because the Obamas were scheduled to be in Hawaii on Dec. 20th, when the holiday began that year. Just saying… Via BizPac Review: A United States embassy’s jaw-dropping decision to move its Fourth of July celebration to June to avoid the Muslim holy month of Ramadan is...
Feds: You Want S’mores? Skip Marshmallows, Use Yogurt Insteadby Shifra on May 26, 2015
Memo to the USDA: A graham cracker with low-fat yogurt and strawberries or banana is not a s’mores. It’s a mushy mess. And this is really none of your business. Via Washington Examiner: Government s’mores: Strawberries instead of chocolate, yogurt instead of marshmallows The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s “MyPlate” service handed out…advice on Sunday, and said strawberry s’mores are a treat that “kids will love.” But expectations for the kids might need to be set in advance, since these s’mores don’t have any chocolate or marshmallows in them. Instead, USDA encourages people to plop some low-fat vanilla yogurt on a graham cracker, and then top the yogurt with strawberries. Top it off with another graham cracker, and you have a...
Obama Regime’s New Target: Movie Theater Popcornby Shifra on May 22, 2015
Obama’s FDA is taking aim at popcorn sold at movie theaters. And Reese’s Pieces, frozen pizza, doughnuts, and a whole lot of other things that taste good. So, get ready to say goodbye to almost anything that contains trans fats. Via IJ Review: 14 Delicious Foods We Can All Kiss Goodbye if Obama Bans Trans Fats – This Week Reports have been streaming in that the FDA, under order of the Obama administration, will be banning trans fats across the whole country.

Biden To Chinese Leader: U.S. Upholding Human Rights ‘Doesn’t Make Us Better Or Worse’by Shifra on April 7, 2015
Stunningly stupid… Via Daily Caller: Report: Biden Told Chinese Leader That US Focus On Human Rights ‘Doesn’t Make Us Better’ Joe Biden apparently doesn’t think America’s focus on human rights makes it superior to authoritarian regimes that systematically violate their people’s basic human rights. At least that’s what he told Xi Jinping before the Chinese leader assumed his country’s top office, according to a report in the New Yorker magazine. During meetings with Biden sometime in 2011 or 2012, Xi reportedly asked Biden why the U.S. places “so much emphasis on human rights” “No President of the United States could represent the United States were he not committed to human rights,” Biden reportedly responded. “If you don’t understand this, you...
Cal State U. ‘Deactivates’ Christian Group…For Seeking Christian Leadersby Shifra on March 30, 2015
What’s next: Churches to lose tax-exempt status for requiring their pastors to be Christian? Via BizPac: UNBELIEVABLE reason a Christian group got the boot from Calif. campus California State University’s executive order requiring non-discrimination butted heads with Cal State Stanislaus chapter of Chi Alpha, a Christian student organization — and the organization came out the loser. “What they cannot be is faith-based where someone has to have a profession of faith to be that leader,” Associate Vice President of Cal State Tim Lynch said, according to Fox News. “Every club is allowed to establish its own standards for how leaders are selected as long as it’s non-discriminatory.” The group answered the university’s “rules are rules” statement with a common sense...
