One day a father gets out of work, and on his way home he suddenly remembers that it’s his little daughter’s birthday.
He dashes over to a toy shop and asks the sales person: “what is the price of those Barbies in the display window?”
The salesperson returns: “which one do you mean, Sir?
We have Work Out Barbie for $19.95, Shopping Barbie for $19.95, Beach Barbie for $19.95, Disco Barbie for $19.95, Ballerina Barbie for $19.95, Astronaut Barbie for $19.95, Skater Barbie for $19.95, and Divorced Barbie for $199.95.”
The amazed father asks: “how much?! Why is the divorced Barbie $199.95 and the others only $19.95?” The annoyed salesperson rolls her eyes, sighs, and answers:
“Sir, the other Barbies only come with an outfit. Divorced Barbie comes with: Ken’s Car, Ken’s House, Ken’s Boat, Ken’s Furniture, Ken’s Computer and one of Ken’s best friends.”
It’s often claimed by Western enemies of Israel that the military actions of the Israel Defense Forces against Hamas in Gaza are disproportionate because such actions kill Arabs while Hamas attacks don’t kill Israelis.
That’s apparently why the Western media ignore the thousands of rockets and aerial firebombs launched from Gaza to kill the residents of southern Israel, reporting instead IDF military action to stop such attacks as the wanton killing of civilians.
When an Israeli actually is murdered by an Arab in cold blood, however, this isn’t reported as wanton killing of the innocent, if he happens to be the wrong sort of Israeli. Then it’s suggested his murder is his own fault.
The killing of American-born Israeli Ari Fuld on Sept. 16 has caused an outpouring of grief in Israel. The impassioned eulogies to him poured out not just because his wife, four children, parents and the rest of his family have been so cruelly bereaved.
It’s because he was a brave and outstanding fighter for Israel and the Jewish people, and admired even by his political opponents on account of his warm nature. He devoted his existence to fighting a great evil to which he has now lost his own life.
The Western media, however, don’t count Ari Fuld as a victim at all because, as a resident of the Judean town of Efrat, he was a “settler.”
Last August, the Palestinian Authority (PA) protested because Israel arrested a Palestinian woman from Hebron on charges of incitement and affiliation with Hamas. The 42-year-old woman, Lama Khater, is also known as a strong critic of the President Mahmoud Abbas and his Palestinian Authority.
Khater’s scathing attacks on Abbas and his government, however, did not stop the Palestinian Authority from condemning Israel and demanding her immediate release.
This was not the first time that the Palestinian Authority has condemned Israel for arresting a Palestinian woman who voiced criticism of Abbas and his policies. Last year, the Palestinian Authority condemned Israel for arresting Khaleda Jarrar, a senior member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, one of several PLO terrorist groups. Jarrar was arrested by Israel for membership in a terrorist group and incitement.
The incidents concerning Khater and Jarrar came to mind this week as Palestinian sources revealed that Mahmoud Abbas’s security forces in the West Bank arrested two Palestinian women.
Interview with Mario Alexis Portella printed by the Italian newspaper La Verità on November 22, 2018
“I Have Seen the Massacres in Iraq and I Say: Having a Dialogue with Islam is Impossible”
The American priest speaks after having published a book Islam: Religion of Peace? The Violation of Natural Rights and Western Cover-Up on the “falsity” of the “religion of peace.” He says: “The violence is to be found in the pages of the Quran. There is no single authority who speaks for them, this facilitates the extremists.”
Interviewer Marcello Mancini
What type of dialogue can one have with those who want a woman, such as Asia Bibi dead — her crime offering a cup of water to other Muslim women?
It is not a dialogue with the religion but with those who speak for the religion. Ever since Ataturk eliminated the caliphate in 1924 many Islamists have taking advantage of the political vacuum to represent Islam in their own manner. Here is speak about heads of state, and above all the imams. Since there is no central authority representing islam altogether, it is difficult to individualize an interlocutor.
“Since the BBC began reporting on the ‘Great Return March’ violent rioting over seven months ago, BBC audiences have seen the grand total of one minute and twenty seconds of coverage reflecting the point of view of residents of the Israeli communities close to the Gaza Strip-Israel border who are affected by the violence.”
That particular protest did eventually get a very brief mention in one radio programme over a week later but BBC audiences have heard nothing of the many additional protests organised by those affected by terrorism from the Gaza Strip, both before and after the last serious incident in mid-November.
“Residents of the Gaza border and their supporters protested in Tel Aviv on Saturday night [August 18th 2018 –…

Three troubling incidents occurred this week that highlight the Left’s ongoing and deliberate effort to ignore blatant anti-Semitism emanating from its quarters. Despite some pushback from the remnants of the center-left – a group rapidly shrinking in size and influence – it’s a growing problem that only appears to be getting worse.
The first involves an attempted car ramming attack against a group of Jews near a Los Angeles synagogue. The attack was captured on video. In it, the attacker, identified as Mohamed Mohamed Abdi, can be seen making a U-turn in an effort to ram the group. The 32-year-old Abdi was born in Mogadishu Somalia but managed to obtain U.S. citizenship. Witnesses at the scene said that Abdi yelled anti-Semitic epithets at the group before attempting to murder them with his car.
Fortunately, Abdi was caught and no one was injured. In addition to state charges, Abdi may also be facing more serious federal charges involving civil rights violations. Aside from a few local media outlets, the incident unsurprisingly garnered little establishment media attention. One has to wonder how the media would have treated the incident had Abdi been a Trump supporter, wearing a bright red Make America Great Again hat.
The second incident involves congresswoman-elect, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. In a tweet, the 29-year-old Democratic Socialist absurdly compared the Central-American migrant caravan to Jews fleeing the Nazi orchestrated Holocaust. Such asinine comparisons represent a gross distortion of reality and are tantamount to Holocaust denial. No one ever branded a migrant with a number nor poisoned them with deadly Zyclon-B poison gas. No one ever subjected migrants to sadistic medical experiments nor forcibly worked them until exhaustion and death.
“A chapel in Linz, Austria, is set to blast out the Muslim call to prayer each day throughout the Christmas period as part of an ‘art installation’ aimed at emphasising that Islam is a religion of peace.”
The Islamic call to prayer declares:
God is the greatest (Allahu akbar)
I testify that there is no God but Allah
I testify that Mohammed is God’s Prophet
Come to prayer
Come to security/salvation
God is the greatest
There is no God but Allah
The Upper Austrian Cultural Quarter’s Ursuline Church has in effect become a mosque for the Christmas season.
Just last month, the European Court of Human Rights ruled that criticizing Muhammad is now forbidden. The ECHR was ruling in the case of Austrian citizen Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, who “insulted” Muhammad nearly a decade ago by referring to him as a pedophile because of his child bride Aisha. According to the ruling, Austrian courts “carefully balanced her right to freedom of expression with the right of others to have their religious feelings protected.”
