The following is an op-ed we found online and thought you might be interested in how at least one Member of the Knesset feels about the threat of the European Union to remove their members of the UNIFIL peacekeepers in Southern Lebanon.

The language is sometimes imperfect, but the content is worth your time.

Editorial begins:

Op-Ed: When It Gets Tough, EU Just Leaves UNIFIL?

Rumors of a EU withdrawal from Beirut, just as Syria’s crisis is escalating tensions.

Hon. Fiamma Nirenstein is the Vice-President...

In case you aren’t aware of it, the photo on the left is how some Jews would like to see every believer in Yeshua as the Messiah in Israel.

As they are known, Messianic Jews, have a rough time with some sections of the Israeli population.

To be fair, there are many in Israel who give little or no thought to religion, regardless of the kind.

Recently the good folks at Israel Today reported the following:

“The ultra-Orthodox organization Yad L'Achim has long been a thorn in the side of Israel's Messianic Jewish community. Sometimes more...

Have you ever felt that the face to the left could be as effective as your Congressman or Senator, not to mention anyone in the Executive branch?

Take for instance a report on the website recently:

“A report presented to members of Congress on Tuesday by Jerusalem-based research institute NGO Monitor shows that US Government funding of several political NGOs in the Palestinian Authority...

We regularly receive briefings from INSS. This one on Hezbollah is informative and timely. You should enjoy it.

Confusion to our enemies!

Briefing begins:

Hizbollah's increasingly apparent involvement in the bloodshed in Syria has hurt the organization's legitimacy and popularity within Lebanon. The developments and discourse in the Lebanese social media in recent months indicate the depth of the crises that Hizbollah now faces. The terms "civil war," "confrontation," "political vacuum" and "sectarian struggle"...

The following is a briefing with my comments in brackets.

Shortly after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu pledged Sunday, May 19, to maintain Israeli operations in Syria against the passage of advanced Iranian weapons to the Lebanese Hizballah, Syrian troops and their Hizballah comrades stormed Al-Qasayr, the northwestern town which commands the high road from Syrian Homs to Lebanon’s Hermel Mountains. This was a major victory: Iranian arms for Hizballah can now go through from Syria to destination...

UNESCO, (The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), for those who are unfamiliar with it has the following to say about itself:

UNESCO works to create the conditions for dialogue among civilizations, cultures and peoples, based upon respect for commonly shared values. It is through this dialogue that the world can achieve global visions of sustainable development encompassing observance of human rights, mutual respect and the alleviation of poverty, all of which are at the heart of UNESCO’S mission and activities.

This just in from the folks at The Israel Project:

This week's campaign to free seven kidnapped Egyptian security officials in the Sinai Peninsula exposed deep rifts between the Egyptian army and the country's Muslim Brotherhood-linked government, with the regime preventing the army from subduing jihadists to whom the Brotherhood is sympathetic. Sheikh Nabil Naim, one of the leaders of the jihad movement in Egypt, explained to Asharq al-Awsat that the Brotherhood is close to jihadist groups operating in the Sinai because the two are ideologically aligned in seeking to establish a new caliphate, and because the Brotherhood may need to call upon the jihadists to battle the Egyptian opposition. The government has declined Egyptian army requests for a broad campaign that would eliminate the some 2,000 terrorists that operate in the northern Sinai. Egyptian security forces have consistently blamed Hamas...

The Tavor is a gun for people who not only have to use it in combat situations, but for those of us who enjoy the masterpiece of design and manufacture.

While they are not the default weapon in Israel yet, the IDF is already looking at a Micro Tavor, especially for high security personnel.

For you non-Hebrew speakers, Tavor is the same word as Tabor, as in Mt. Tabor of Deborah and Barak Bible lore.

The video above demonstrates the original model.

Here is what the Israel Defense website had to report on the Micro:

“The Tavor rifle, developed by Israeli Military Industry's light weapons factory, Magen, which...

Do these men believe the law of the land is irrelevant? Are they sworn to protect the law or to use it to punish anyone who disagrees with them?

Are they destined for impeachment and shame for their obviously illegal actions?

White House assistant, Dan Pfeiffer made the Sunday talk shows to try to fluff up the President’s image. It would seem that his the media talking heads were less than impressed.

No one has ever called Bob Scheiffer a conservative, but even he asked Pfeiffer, “Why am I talking to you?”

That was...

Word is out that President Shimon Peres will travel Sunday to Jordan. He is taking part in the World Economic Forum. That is not unusual.

But there is rumor floating that he will also meet privately with PA President Mahmoud Abbas and US Secretary of State John Kerry.

As the Times of Israel reported, “Ahead of the trip, Peres will conduct a working meeting with Kerry Thursday evening in Jerusalem. According to the President’s Residence, the two leaders will “first and foremost” discuss Washington’s effort to restart peace negotiations...
