This Week's Editorial

THE EBOLA- LIKE PLAGUE OF ANTI-SEMITISM SWEEPING THE WEST
Posted on August 04, 2014 by Avi Davis

My parents, who have lived in Jerusalem for 22 years, recently met their new neighbors.  They are French Jews from Paris who describe themselves as refugees. " We came to the conclusion that there was simply no future for us in France.  Jews are targets there and the government cannot and does not want to protect them. France is lost."

Their message resonated with me as I returned to Israel from a  speaking tour of Southern Africa.  In South Africa I watched as President Jacob Zuma and many of his secondary ministers, fulminated about the international crimes of the Israeli government in Gaza.  In Namibia, a country with only a handful of Jews and with no previous strong record of antisemitic animus, television news programs consistently portrayed a one dimensional view of the conflict, failing entirely to present the context of Operation Protective Edge and castigating the worldwide Jewish support for Israel as the primary culprit.

THE GREATEST FRAUD IN HISTORY
Posted on July 20, 2014 by Michael Greer

The first time I heard the claim that man was causing global warming, I thought it was a joke. When I realized that not only weren’t they joking, they were deadly serious, I had to know why. They claimed CO2 was responsible for all kinds of evils, but I knew that CO2 was a nutrient necessary for life on our planet. I also knew that CO2 is emitted by every living creature in nearly everything we do. Reducing CO2 would require de-industralizing our country, destroying our economy, and reducing crop output. It would lead to deaths of living creatures. I determined to learn as much as I could about “global warming”, and find out what was behind it. For the last ten years or so, I have been reading, researching, and listening to actual scientists who study these disciplines.

AN EMPTY VESSEL? THE UNIVERSITY AND THE COLLAPSE OF TEACHING STANDARDS

By Avi Davis

Picture this: An attractive young woman at a job interview - well tailored, with an engaging smile and an extensive resume. She has graduated summa cum laude from Vassar, has earned four degrees - one of them a law degree from Boalt Law School. At her interview she is asked a question about the founding of the United States: "Can you tell me when the United States was founded?" The young woman looks a little puzzled and after a few reflective moments responds: " 1940?"

Okay, the interviewer thinks, some people are just not good with dates. " Can you perhaps tell me then, the name of our first President?" Another moment of stunned silence followed by a sheepish response: "Jimmy Carter? "

It is tempting to characterize this woman's disgraceful paucity of knowledge about her country's origins as an outlier, unrepresentative of her generation. But that would be to gloss over a yawning gulf between our current crop of graduates and the educated Americans who preceded her. For today it is not only common for students to graduate college without the slightest knowledge of the foundations of the American republic, but also without the ability to spell correctly, write cogent sentences, perform basic mathematical equations or speak one sentence of the English language without the word "like" included.

UCLA to host event encouraging students to masturbate instead of studying for finals

Katherine Timpf, Campus Reform Reporter
on May 28, 2014 at 3:21 PM EDT

UCLA's event tonight will train students in the use of various sex toys and masturbation techniques. The Student Wellness Commission Gender Health Committee plans to host more workshops teaching students how to have sex for pleasure.

The University of California - Los Angeles (UCLA) will host a workshop tonight titled “Finals Can Wait, Masturbate!” during which students will receive masturbation training and free “climaxing cream.”

 During the event, sex educator Elle Chase will “be demonstrating the use of various sex toys and presenting various masturbation techniques,” according to an article in The Daily Bruin, the official student newspaper.

 In addition to the “climaxing cream,” all attendees will receive free condoms.

 The student wellness commissioner of the Undergraduate Students Association Council (USAC), which is co-hosting the event, said the event is important because people do not talk about masturbation enough.

Join Avi Davis when he interviews Neil J. Kressel, author of the The Sons of Pigs and Apes,: Muslim Antisemitism and the Conspiracy of Silence
Log in and listen at any time

 The rise of antisemitism in the Muslim world is compounded by the fact that many in the West refuse to recognize the issue. Apathy, ignorance,confusion, bigotry and misguided multiculturalism have all contributed to the growth of this plague. Author Kressel argues convincingly that Muslim antisemitism is the acid test of the seriousness of Western liberalism. If the West fails to stem this growing tide, as now seems likely, future affairs will not go well for the proponents of democracy

The Consequences of an Obama Second Term for the Future of the West
