Historic Israel-UAE Peace Agreement… With President Trump’s Helpby Shifra on August 13, 2020
This is really a historic day. And this is soooo reminiscent of when Barack Obama got the Nobel Peace Prize for…um…er…something…er, nothing. Obama foreign policy team deserves some credit for Israel-UAE peace: their love affair with Iran and the Palestinians & their animosity toward Israel and Gulf states helped bring the latter together — Noah Pollak (@NoahPollak) August 13, 2020 Via Fox News. President Trump on Thursday announced what he called a “Historic Peace Agreement” between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, saying they agreed to “full normalization of relations.”…. The president, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the United Arab Emirates Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed released a joint statement...

President Trump’s niece, Mary Trump, has called his father, Fred Trump Sr., a “sociopath.” Yeah, no. Here is the account from Rabbi Shmuel Wagner, now living in Israel, the son of Rabbi Yisroel Wagner, who, in 1956, met with Fred Trump.

Israeli Diplomats Praise Ric Grenell As Most Significant US Ambassadorby Shifra on May 27, 2020
The Leftists in Germany might be glad that Ric Grenell is leaving his Berlin post. But Israeli diplomats say he will be sorely missed. Via Jerusalem Post. The departure of US ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell this week prompted a wave of accolades for his diplomatic work from important Israeli ambassadors based in continental Europe. Grenell’s robust diplomacy to advance human freedom will be deeply missed in Europe. He served as US president Donald Trump’s go-to ambassador for the continent. Within a mere two years, he quickly earned kudos as a “force of nature” who secured diplomatic results. For Israel, Grenell was the most significant US ambassador in Europe with respect to fighting contemporary antisemitism and moving the security interests...
Cop Stops Doctor For Speeding, Gives Her… Protective Masksby Shifra on April 2, 2020
Because this is who we are. Via NY Post. A police officer who pulled over a doctor for speeding let her go with a warning — and handed her five N95 masks instead of a ticket, she wrote in a Facebook post…. “He went back to his patrol car to look up my license, and when he returned, quite firmly told me it was very irresponsible of me to be speeding, especially since I would not only take up resources if I got into an accident, but would also not be in a position to help patients,” she wrote in the post. But instead of a fine, the trooper let her off with a warning, she wrote. “As I sputtered...
‘Google Doodle’ Honors Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis, ‘Father of Handwashing’by Shifra on March 22, 2020
In 1847, Dr. Semmelweis, a Jewish Hungarian doctor, began to sound the alarm in Vienna that women were needlessly dying in hospitals after childbirth due to the negligence of doctors, who routinely performed autopsies and other medical procedures without “bothering” to wash their hands between procedures. Unfortunately, Semmelweis’s calls for handwashing were rejected and mocked by his colleagues. He became severely depressed, and he was involuntarily committed to an insane asylum, where he died at the age of 47. Via UPI. Google is celebrating physician Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis and hand washing with a new Doodle. Semmelweis was appointed Chief Resident in the maternity clinic of Vienna General Hospital in 1847 when he discovered the medical benefits of hand washing and...
Muslim Medic Who Saved Israeli Girl’s Life Ten Years Ago Speaks At Her Weddingby Shifra on July 15, 2019
With all the negativity, finger-pointing and shouting lately, this is a great story about peaceful coexistence, hope, life, and love. Via Jerusalem Post. It is not unusual for a wedding to leave many of the guests in tears. However, a wedding in Israel last week did not leave a dry eye in the house for a very special reason. Muawiya Kabha, a Muslim paramedic in a response unit of United Hatzalah, made a special appearance at the wedding of Shahar Kugelmas and Nir David, and recounted to the guests present how in April 2009, he had arrived at the scene of a car crash to find Shahar dead…. “When I arrived there after two minutes, the doctor told me ‘this...
Hillary Tries To Defend Disastrous Iran Deal, Amb. Ric Grenell Shuts Her Down In Epic Tweetby Shifra on July 11, 2019
The Obama Administration’s Iran Deal will go down in history as an absolute disaster. Yet Hillary continues to defend it, and blames President Trump when the Iranians cheat. You know what else would have been an absolute disaster? If Hillary had won in 2016. HT Twitchy. When the Trump administration threatened to pull out of the Iran deal and impose more sanctions last year, it was clear that we'd lose our leverage and Iran would be free to do what it wanted. Predictably, Iran is now exceeding enrichment limits the deal once imposed. — Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) July 9, 2019 By withdrawing from the deal, the administration has effectively broken up the international coalition that was unified in constraining Iran,...

Covington Students’ Lawyer: 48 Hours To Retract Fake News Before Lawsuits Beginby Shifra on January 24, 2019
Well, now we know why Rep. Ilhan Omar so quickly deleted her lying tweet about the Covington Catholic students; Robert Barnes, the lawyer who is offering to sue public figures for spreading false stories about the now-infamous incident, had added Omar to his list of “retract or get sued.” This is how we get the vicious vipers to be more careful about spreading fake stories. As Tammy reminded us on her show earlier this week, after Melania Trump threatened the Daily Mail with a lawsuit for spreading lies about her, the paper very quickly retracted and apologized. Lib hacks everywhere, beware! Via Western Journal. An attorney representing students and alumni from Covington Catholic High School announced on Wednesday that his...

CAIR’s legal defense fund is supporting a speech therapist whose attempt to renew her contract with a school district in an Austin suburb hit a hurdle when she refused to sign a document affirming she does not boycott Israel…. “Ms. Amawi advocates for boycotts of Israel due to Israel’s continuing violations of international law in its treatment of Palestinians,” the suit says. “Specifically, Ms. Amawi boycotts products created in Israel in support of the peaceful...

Yes, “elections have consequences” Via Daily Wire. On Monday, incoming governor Ron DeSantis of Florida stated bluntly that if Airbnb does not rescind its recently-instituted policy of delisting listings from Israeli Jews in Judea and Samaria (the West Bank), he will work to make sure that Florida state officials are not permitted to use Airbnb for official travel. DeSantis stated: The other issue that’s now coming to the forefront is this new policy by Airbnb to basically discriminate against Jews in the West Bank. They delisted all...

Benghazi Survivor Has Choice Words For Those Criticizing Trump Over Khashoggiby Tammy on October 20, 2018
Paronto makes an excellent point. Having to point out liberal hypocrisy has been an every day effort for all of us now for years. Tucker has also noted the anger over the Saudi journalist’s death is posturing and “an international incident hyped and manufactured for domestic political goals.” Considering the lack of outrage in the past over horrors like Benghazi, yeah, that seems like an accurate description. Via Daily Caller. Benghazi survivor Kris “Tanto” Paronto had a few choice words for those who have been critical of President Donald Trump’s response to the death of Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi at Turkey’s Saudi Arabian Embassy. Addressing his tweet to the “leftist journalists & liberalists” who are angry about the Trump...

Beautifully said, it speaks to his dignity and strength: Too many stories about people taking their lives. Here is a man who fought for life in the face of catastrophic tragedies.
