A man and his wife were driving through the country on his way from New York to California.
Looking at his fuel gauge, he decided to stop at the next gasoline station and fill it up. About 15 minutes later, he spots a Mobil station and pulls over to the high octane pump.
“What can I do for y’all?” asks the attendant. “Fill ‘ER up with high test,” replies the driver. While the attendant is filling up the tank, he’s looking the car up and down.
“What kinda car is this?” he asks. “I never seen one like it before.”
“Well,” responds the driver, his chest swelling up with pride, “This, my boy is a 1999 Cadillac DeVille.”
“What features does it have?” asks the attendant.
“Well,” says the driver, “It has everything. It’s loaded with power steering, power seats, power sun roof, power mirrors, AM/FM radio with a 10 deck CD player in the trunk with 100 watts per channel, 8 speaker stereo, rack and pinion steering, disk brakes all around, leather interior, digital instrument package, and best of all, an 8.8 liter V12 engine.”
“Wow,” says the attendant, “That’s really something!”
“How much do I owe you for the gasoline?” asks the driver.
“That’ll be $30.17,” says the attendant.
The driver pulls out his money clip and peels off a $20 and a $10. He goes into his other pocket and pulls out a handful of change. Mixed up with the change are a few golf tees.
“What are those little wooden things?” asks the attendant.
“That’s what I put my balls on when I drive,” says the driver.
“Wow,” says the attendant, “Those Cadillac people think of everything!”
“Sometimes when I come back from the visit with Gabriella, after saying goodbye to her, I feel as if I cannot live without her, I want to go back and hold her. She kisses me so hard. It is hard to say goodbye to her. She blows kisses all the way as she goes up the stairs, and everyone stands there watching.” These are the words of a grieving British mother, Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, held in prison in the Islamic Republic of Iran, as she describes saying goodbye to her child.
In 2016, the relationship between the regime of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and the Obama administration seemed to have reached a euphoric level. Many exorbitant concessions were made by the United States to the Islamic Republic. The argument for these concessions was that such policies of appeasement would inspire Iran to change its malignant behavior, and that the freedoms that resulted would trickle down to the Iranian people. People began to think it would be safe to travel to Iran again. As tourism began to increase, however, it soon became clear that there was still rampant danger. People started becoming the new hostages of Iran.
Two of these victims are an innocent British mother, Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, and her helpless then-22-month-old daughter, Gabriella. Zaghari-Ratcliffe traveled with her baby to Iran to visit her family on Norowz, the Iranian New Year, in 2016. With the change in political climate Zaghari-Ratcliffe, employed as a project manager with the Thomson Reuters Foundation, the charitable arm of the Canadian news agency, Thomson Reuters, assumed they would be safe. As she boarded the plane, she had no idea what she would face at the Khomeini Airport. She was surrounded by The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and arrested.
Recently, Jack Engelhard, the author of the novel Indecent Proposal, recently wrote a column titled, A Blood Libel too Far which along with this article were the inspiration for us to put forth our two cent’s worth, or is that two Shekel’s worth. We hope to take these themes in a different direction, so please return and read our opinions and information after you have read the links, and please always read at least some of the links we provide. We are going to take the tack of giving a different look at what is the occupation under the treaties and conventions which apply to the formation of Israel, promises made and broken and what it all means under International Law, you know, the laws Israel is often berated for breaking by people who either have little if any knowledge or are intentionally fabricating their own inventions to…

When the Obama-brokered Iran nuclear deal was signed in 2015, one of the many spurious reasons offered for that agreement was that it would help the supposedly moderate Iranian President Hassan Rouhani draw the sting of the Islamic regime’s extremism.
Now Rouhani is no longer bothering to conceal his real side. Addressing the annual Islamic Unity Conference in Tehran last weekend, Rouhani called Israel a “cancerous tumor” that was formed as a result of World War II.
Descending to full-blown Jewish-conspiracy theory, he said: “They deployed a power in the region that completely obeys the west in regional matters … they formed the fake Israeli regime and killed and displaced the historical nation of Palestine.”
Meanwhile Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, urged conference participants to “strengthen the Islamic awakening and resistance movement in the region as much as they can, because the only way for the salvation of the region is to spread this spirit and thinking.”
Yet despite this deranged, genocidal call to arms, European governments are still trying to circumvent U.S. policy against Iran in an attempt to keep the nuclear deal alive.
Israel is a tiny little nation with troubles imposed upon her unlike anywhere else. Love Israel, Hate Israel, not care about Israel, no matter your viewpoint, you definitely are never permitted to ignore Israel. If you follow the news you have likely noted that the Jews of Europe are feeling endangered. More so in some countries and less so in others, but in all of Europe the Jews are waking to the fact that their days of comfortable homes and safety are ending or numbered. Many of these Jews are heading, mistakenly, for Canada and the United States or even South America and places unthought of with at least half deciding to just take the plunge and return home to Israel. Yes, return home as this little nation at the eastern edge of the Mediterranean is their home from which they have largely been denied for over two millennia. Those…

Why does this keep happening? One survivor of a Muslim rape gang in the UK said that her rapists would quote Quran to her, and believed their actions justified by Islam.
The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.
And Shivzad’s choice of a primary school-age is reminiscent of the 54-year-old Muhammad consummating his marriage with the nine-year-old Aisha.
“Sick rapist lures little girl before subjecting her to vile sex attack lasting over 30 minutes,” by Gareth Lightfoot, Teeside Live, February 3, 2019 (thanks to Paul):
Shares in South Africa’s largest dairy firm plunged by nearly 10 percent on Thursday, as anti-Israel activists attempted to wreck a $354 million buyout deal with an Israeli-led consortium.
Composed of local, black-owned investment companies and the majority stakeholder, the Tel Aviv-based Central Bottling Co. (CBC), the consortium announced the buyout of South African dairy company Clover on Monday, sending the company’s stock soaring by 21 percent.
But after protests from the influential political lobby in South Africa that advocates for an economic and cultural boycott of Israel, Brimstone Investments, one of the four South African partners in the consortium, said on Thursday that it would “reconsider” its participation in the deal, sending Clover’s share price tumbling.
News of the Israeli-led buyout earlier in the week had been warmly welcomed by South African financial analysts, who are concerned by the sharp decline in foreign direct investment in the country in recent years.
