    Israel at 73: Festivities & Dramatic IAF Flyover to Celebrate Independence Day

    Hundreds of Israeli flags are in place; the Air Force has been rehearsing its formation fly-by routine for days; platforms and sound systems stand ready in the main squares in town; and there’s a discernible festive air in the Jewish state. But before Yom Ha’atzmaut celebrations of the nation’s 73rd birthday take place on April 15th, Israel pays its annual tribute to those who fell in battles and terror attacks that continue to claim lives even until today.
    Officially known as Fallen Soldiers and Victims of Terrorism Remembrance Day, Yom Hazikaron takes place the day before Yom Ha’atzmaut, and the piercing siren brings the country to a complete standstill at 8 p.m., then again at 11 a.m. the next morning for two minutes of silent remembrance. The abrupt change in atmosphere between the two days is stunning and uniquely Israeli.

  • Media Attempts to Undermine Jerusalem and Israel’s History
    We won’t allow anyone to undermine Jerusalem as Israel’s eternal unified capital. Everyone who really knows about the Seder and Haggadah for Pesach (Passover), knows that for thousands of years we sing “Next year in the rebuilt Jerusalem!” This is in recognition of Jerusalem’s ancient and eternal status as the Jewish Nation’s capital. In fact, this has been true for a thousand years before the Muslim religion was created or any Arab had even come to Jerusalem. In addition, Disney’s video erroneously says that after escaping slavery in Egypt, the Jews “found their new home that they called the Holy Land.” The fact is that the ancient Israelites had been enslaved in Egypt after having come there from the Holy Land of Israel seeking food during a long famine. Thus, the return to Israel was not to find a “new home” but rather to return home — to the Land of their forefathers and foremothers — with Jerusalem as its capital!

  • Antisemitic Blood Libels Find New Material During COVID Pandemic
    Despite the blood libels Muslim, Jewish and Christian citizens of Israel share the same rights and freedoms. Just as a timely example, Israel’s capital of Jerusalem has three major hospitals that employ and treat people of all faiths and all backgrounds. There are doctors, nurses, lab workers and other associated staff from all religions working side-by-side to fight back against the coronavirus pandemic. Together, they treat patients from all walks of life without question and have worked hard to vaccinate anyone who’s interested. Unfortunately, the main stream media, anti-Israel politicians and many other antisemites have taken the pandemic as an opportunity to bash Israel yet again. We invite everyone to see for themselves what is going on — come to Jerusalem to see the medical offices and hospitals vaccinating patients of all religions, nationalities and backgrounds. You’ll see the same throughout Israel. And… please let the media and entertainers know that blood libels are not funny…

    Jared Kushner, the White House adviser under former President Trump, was nominated Sunday for the Nobel Peace Prize over his efforts in negotiating deals between Israel, the United Arab Emirates and other countries in the region over a hectic four-month period last year.
    Reuters reported that Kushner and Avi Berkowitz, his former deputy, were nominated by Alan Dershowitz, the professor emeritus of Harvard Law School. Reuters called the deals the “most significant diplomatic breakthroughs in the Middle East in 25 years,” and many Trump supporters said the media downplayed their magnitude in order to hurt his chances at reelection.
