Don’t be so Pedantic!

 A young monk arrives at the monastery. He is assigned to helping the other monks in copying the old canons and laws of the church by hand.
He notices, however, that all of the monks are copying from copies, not from the original manuscript. So the new monk goes to the head abbot to question this, pointing out that if someone made even a small error in the first copy, it would never be picked up! In fact, that error would be continued in all of the subsequent copies. 
The head monk, says, We have been copying from the copies for centuries, but you make a good point, my son.
He goes down into the dark caves underneath the monastery where the original manuscripts are held as archives in a locked vault that hasn’t been opened for hundreds of years.
Hours go by and nobody sees the old abbot.  So, the young monk gets worried and goes down to look for him. He sees him banging his head against the wall and wailing.
‘We missed the R! We missed the R! We missed the R!!!’
His forehead is all bloody and bruised and he is crying uncontrollably. The young monk asks the old abbot, ‘What’s wrong, father?’
With a choking and tear filled voice, the Abbot screams: “The word was…
The word was… CELEBRATE!!!

President Trump Requires a New “Deal of the Century”

Beyond the Cusp

Now that we have slowly but surely, and we hope fairly correctly, perused over the situation facing President Trump and his presented intuitions and leaks fed the media in our articles, “President Trump Needs to Face Reality,” “Why Not Simply Face Facts,” and “Middle East Reality Strikes President Trump,” perhaps it is time to present a viable, even if untested and unconventional, path which provides the President a way forward. What we are going to present is something rarely attempted or even found useful in politics and international relations, the truth. One thing for sure, the truth has seldom even been presented in Middle East relations since Moses presented Hashem’s words and warnings to Pharos. As we recall, that turned out rather poorly for Pharos, so even then the truth did not provide a conflict free resolution, though in the end the two sides…

Spain: Ground Zero for Europe’s Anti-Israel Movement


Valencia, the third-largest city in Spain, has approved a motion to boycott Israel and slander it by declaring the city an “Israeli apartheid-free zone.” The move comes days after Navarra, one of Spain’s 17 autonomous communities, announced a similar measure. In all, more than 50 Spanish cities and regions have passed motions condemning Israel. The proliferating anti-Israel activism, driven by the rise to power of the political far-left, is establishing Spain as the EU member state most hostile towards the Jewish state.

The Valencian measure, introduced by the far-left party València en Comú, was approved during a plenary session of the city council on May 31. The motion, which commits the city to refrain from engaging in business contacts or cultural events with Israeli authorities or companies, aims at establishing Valencia as “a global reference for solidarity with the Palestinians.”

The motion, which libelously describes Israel as an “apartheid regime,” accuses the Jewish state of “colonialism,” “racism,” “ethnic cleansing,” “tyranny,” and “genocide.”

The measure, which claims to reflect the “dignity, solidarity and justness” of the Valencian people, was introduced by Neus Fábregas Santana, a city councilor whose Twitter feed reveals an obsession with demonizing and delegitimizing Israel.
