The Knights Templar~Nothing Like the MadMan of Norway

One of the things that the perpetrator of the massacre in Norway claimed was that he was a Templar Knight. This has prompted a lot of discussion on just who and what the Knights Templar were.

They started in 1119 with a mere nine warriors and their meteoric rise to power gained steam in 1128 after the return from Jerusalem. By the time they reached their peak of power their numbers were in the tens of thousands. They were rich~very rich and held debt notes from the very wealthy across Europe~this would eventually lead to their downfall.

I found an interesting series from the History Channel, that investigates their background, and eventual demise. So much mystery surrounds this group of crusaders, one has to wonder what was fact or fiction.

The series brings out the honorable beginnings, the associations and eventually the questions about their operations. They were indeed an awesome group of men whose history has inspired the stories of heroes and legends.

How much is real I can't say, but one thing I can say for sure, the delusional, murderous Norwegian was no Templar Knight.

Since these facts were compiled the situation has only become worse. When will the western world wake up and start helping those who are truly in need?

The Liars Of The CBC~A "Gotcha" Moment

There is an interesting article on Blazing Cat Fur, stating that the Jewish Defense League is going to sue the CBC. I urge you to go to the LINK where you will find more details and information.

The CBC like the BBC is funded by tax money. They are paid from the public coffers, supposedly so they can provide a balanced view on the news. The Biased BBC has earned its name~Enough said.

The CBC has now stepped up to the plate with its aversion to calling a terrorist a terrorist...But wait...they apparently have made an exception! According to their research opinion(?) the Jewish Defense League is a terrorist organization! Way to go CBC!

And just In case anyone is wondering~this is from the JDL site:
The Jewish Defense League unconditionally and unequivocally condemns all forms of terrorism. Terrorism is never a legitimate means to the furtherance of political (or any other) goals.

Contrary to the claims of our detractors, the Jewish Defense League is an above-board, law-abiding organization. Terrorism has no place within this movement. JDL enforces a strict no-tolerance policy against terrorism and other felonious acts; any suggestion of such activity is a violation of this policy. Even when Jews are faced by regimes that violate those core Torah tenets that require the highest levels of Jewish self-sacrifice, terrorism is an unacceptable recourse

Please do listen to the entire report, and see for yourself the travesty that is the CBC. Then, you must do some serious thinking about WHY taxpayer money (in tough times) is being shoveled into the black hole of the CBC. Ya just gotta Love Ezra Levant !

The Bible Codes~Are They Real?

There are many who argue both for and against the Codes in the Bible. This documentary  touches on both views and presents some interesting ideas. You decide...

Some Comments on the Norwegian Attacks

When the bomb exploded in Oslo, an Islamic group immediately claimed that they were responsible~but they did not carry out this horrendous act. Almost immediately, the BBC and CBC became very excited because (thank Gd) it was not carried out by a Muslim. In the clips below you can hear the glee in their voices as they announce the attacker was a "Fundamentalist Christian". The third clip explains how they came to this conclusion. They were so wrong~but you will never hear a retraction.

Anders Behring Breivik was a lone wolf, a mad man. Read his manifest, if you can stand the boredom of sifting through1,500 pages of his ramblings, quoting everyone from Ghandi to Melanie Phillips to Winston Churchill. He used phrases (almost verbatim) from the manifest of Timothy McVeigh. Breivik is a man who lived with his mother and took a year off to play video games! He considered himself a Knight Templar and was influenced by Dan Brown! I could go on, but life is too short.

Instead, here are three clips that provide a good summary of Breivik. In the second clip, Ezra Levant and Michael Coren (around 15:36) make some very good points about the slanted views of the mainstream media~listen to their comments and remember them as the news unfolds...

Ziggy Marley On Israel

For any who missed it here is an interview with Ziggy Marley when he arrived in Israel to do a concert this past weekend. He is married to Israeli Orly Marley and has six children. Asked about boycotts he stated that he believes in a Creator~God made the sun, and the sun shines on everyone. If only more people would hold to such simple, basic views.

On Thursday he did a show in Gan Sacher Park, Jerusalem and it was very well received.  For some good pictures of the event go to the blog Real Jerusalem Streets. Among the songs he sang (including some of his father's hits), he performed Love is my Religion...below the interview...Enjoy!

Is This The Future?

As if we don't have enough stress with traffic jams...I'm thinking that if this catches on we'll be seeing back-ups in the air too. 

An interesting concept, but what about air traffic control? What kind of fuel does it use? Will we be looking at "air traffic accidents"? Do you need a proper pilots license?

Is This Really the Future?

Taliban Brutally Execute Pakistani Police in Dir

The Taliban released a video showing their fighters cowardly execution of sixteen Pakistani tribal policemen after they were captured in a cross-border raid from Afghanistan in June. You can read the full story at The Associated Press. One of the insurgents accused the men of executing six children from Pakistan's Swat Valley by firing squad (Note~There is no confirmation of this but in that region anything is possible) "They are the enemies of the religion of Allah," the man is saying of the police officers.

And therein lies the key point "enemies of the religion of Allah"Watch and Learn~This is the religion of peace...this is what our troops are up against every day! This is what is migrating to our cities and towns because political correctness demands that we allow such people to impose their primitive "sharia" that spits on the freedoms and rights that have defined the western world. Watch to the end~this is what sharia breeds...

WARNING!!  This video is horrendous, cold-blooded, and very difficult to watch.

Occupied Territories~67 Borders=NOT Politically Correct!

Israel's Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Danny Ayalon explains the historical facts relating to the Israeli Palestinian conflict. Please share this with all of your friends !

Beware! Do Not Buy This Stamp...A Hoax?

I just received and email with a long list of information about the issue of Muslim stamps in the USA. Can this be true? Well,  yes and no. I did a bit of searching~stamps commemorating EID have indeed been issued, and they have been around for about eight years~maybe longer. 

Apparently the US Administration (including dear old George W) has been "reaching out" to Islam for some time now with EID stamps such as the one on the left! It seems to be the standard design.

The email I received specifically mentions Obama, and there is a long list of reasons why "To use this stamp would be a slap in the face to all those AMERICANS who died at the hands of those whom this stamp honors".  We are advised to adamantly and vocally BOYCOTT this stamp, when purchasing our stamps at the post office. I can agree with that, but out of curiosity, was anyone boycotting the first release eight years ago~adamantly or vocally? Usually, these types of stamps are optional, and all one would have to say is "No thank you, I do not want that Muslim Stamp on my letters!"  But again, I wonder if anyone has done so?

To be honest, I have not seen such a stamp, but what really caused me to look closer was the image included in the message. Look at the stamp to the is a site where you can order all kinds of "custom" prints, including stamps. The butterfly and hearts are a nice touch ! 

As much as I dislike just about everything about the Obama presidency, I don't think we can glue this one on him. Besides he's already pulling a huge "honey-wagon" behind him and it's getting bigger and bigger !

While I am not going to add the list of horrors that Islam has brought to the world in the past years~we are all too well aware of them~I will pass on the last part of the message as that is no hoax... 
Honor the United States of America !

Muslims Pray in Canadian Public School~On School Day!

What a complete disgrace for Canada! We have seen "Political Correctness" ban any form of prayer, (ie) The Lord's Prayer, singing of the National Anthem, etc. The need for a "secular, neutral", system is rammed down our throats, but Muslims are allowed to hold prayers during school hours on a Friday afternoon in a Toronto School? Teachers are not allowed to make reference to the Torah or the Bible, but  they can lay out prayer mats for Muslim prayers during school hours???

I have reprinted the story from the blog Blazing Cat Fur:..Please Visit their site for more information and Links.  * Note, the emphasis is mine...

Every Friday my daughter's school cafeteria changes into a mosque as dozens of Muslim boys and their imams (Islamic preachers) lead Islamic ritual prayers and no one else can even walk through the cafeteria (?!)

Some imams (Islamic preachers) come from the outside of the school and lead Muslim students in the Islamic prayer and this happens at the school Cafeteria after the lunch on Fridays. All other non-Muslims are in classes in the afternoon when they are using the cafeteria as mosque. There is a mosque nearby but the Muslim kids pray in the school

School administration take part preparing the Cafeteria and making it into mosque every Friday and no one but Muslims can use the Cafeteria during the Islamic prayers on Friday.  

Mark, my other two kids also go to a different public primary school and the snack for all the kids in this primary school is all "Halal". My wife complained about it and she was told she can prepare her own snack for our kids but the school would not drop the Halal menu for all the students. All the school kids in this primary school have to eat halal snacks whether they are Muslim or not.

The school's name and details are:
Valley Park Middle School
130 Overlea Boulevard
Don Mills Ontario, M3C 1B2
Phone: 416 396 2465

You must listen to this entire report because there is much more to this story! As if it is not vile enough, to turn a public school cafeteria into a mosque, ban the rest of the school children from  walking through the area, you need to know this~teen girls who are menstruating are forced to sit isolated at the very back of the "mosqueteria", which announces to all that they are at their "impure" time of the month.

Where are all the Women's Rights groups? Where are all those who demand our public schools be secular?? Can you imagine the outcry if Jews, Christians, Hindus or Buddhists demanded to have prayers during school time on the premises???

If you are not outraged  by this, you should be~What is next? Sharia Law in the schools?

Happy Birthday to a True Comedian!

A couple of days ago I read that Bill Cosby just turned 74~he was born 12 July 1938. I remember buying his "records"--and laughing myself silly. Through the years as he became a TV Icon, I continued to enjoy his wit. What I like most about him is that he could make people roll in the aisles with laughter--without profanity or vulgarity. His is the type of humor that was just plain funny--without all the schlock. Here is one of my favorites...

A Pub for Religious Jews ?

For those of you who are not familiar with it, "Emunah's Jerusalem College of Arts and Technology" was founded in 1971 as a joint project of Emunah Women of America and Emunah Israel and is known for its pioneering and award-winning work in educating religious young women in Torah and the Arts. The high success rate of its graduates has brought recognition and respect throughout Israel.

To this end, student Adi Koren has created a "pub for the religious sector", as her final project for the year. You can read the whole story at Arutz 7. In case you were wondering, the picture to the left is a kippah~with clip!

I think it is a great project! While not a "real pub" it reflects the thought, research and imagination that went into the project in addition to an artistic gift. Kol a Kavod Adi!

The Lubavitcher Rebbe Arrives in America...

The Seventh and last Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson (1902-1994) has had a profound impact on Jews, both religious and secular, as well as on the non-Jewish world. 

Who has not heard of Chabad? Are there any Jews who have not heard of Chabad? As the son-in-law of the 6th Lubavitcher Rebbe, he was tasked with creating social and educational outreach programs. What he started has reached round the world and continues to grow. At his death he was not replaced, yet, the programs and teachings and outreach of Chabad live on.

The wife of the Rebbe, Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneerson (1901-1988), was also a legend in her own time, and is remembered to this day.  Although she had no children of her own, it was said that she would always say that the Chasidim were her children, and indeed, thousands--if not tens of thousands of girls around the world proudly bear her name. Chaya means life and Mushka is an aromatic spice. The Rebbe once made a comment on the significance of naming a child after the Rebbetzin:

"...We can demonstrate that 'her children are alive,' by our taking a lesson from her conduct, and conducting ourselves in her spirit, in a manner of self-sacrifice. This is even more so when naming a child after her, and training the child to follow her example. After all, this is the most basic aspect of her children are alive, so too is she alive..." 

After narrowly escaping the Nazi onslaught in France, the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson and his wife arrived in the United States of America on the 28th day of the Jewish month of Sivan (In 2011 it is 30 June). 

In this film, we see some original footage and hear from those who were there to witness the arrival of the last Rebbe of Lubavitch. This excerpt is from My Encounter With the Rebbe (Volume 4) produced by Jewish Educational Media.

It's a Long Way to Gaza City...

You may have to hold your ears on this one, but at least read the words! Your smile of the day...

This is My Israel...

This is an old clip but I think it needs repeating again, and again...

The US Will Be Transformed into an Islamic Republic.

Although this was from December 2010,  this clip provided by MEMRI TV should serve as a wake up call for the western world. You need to listen to the entire clip to get the full meaning.  With rapid conversions and encouraging communities to elect muslim candidates the Islamists feel they will soon control the west. Look at Europe, the loss of free speech in America and Canadian schools that hold daily prayers in the cafeterias. 

This journalist is not far off the mark. Time for us to start taking a serious look at what political correctness has wrought...

The Arab / Nazi Collaboration in WWII

Time and again I hear the blather that Jews and Muslims always lived in peace until the east European Jews came to "Palestine" after the war. This is, in a word, crap! 

Jews all across the Middle East suffered their own holocaust. Right here in Jerusalem, the evil, anti-semitic Mufti of Jerusalem, could not wait to meet with Hitler. On the 28th of November 1941, the Mufti had a meeting with Hitler. The full protocol of the meeting remains, and states that this was first and foremost a war of extermination against Jewery. The film below is only a small sample of the overwhelming hatred that existed, and still exists to this very day.

Former British MP~Beyond Disgusting

MEMRI TV monitors the Arabic media round the clock. They provide an inside view of  the media and mindset of those whose life seems to revolve around hate~for Israel. 

This clip is all the more disgusting as it features a man who was actually a British MP.  Notice that he states the desire for a PA state in ALL of Israel. This is the common viewpoint and the end goal of the PA and Hamas~Is anyone out there listening?

The "Sea Hitler" From Canada to Gaza

In this discussion Michael Coren calls John Downs to task. Downs is a radio broadcaster whose bio indicates his "beat" is Toronto City Hall. His attitude towards Israel is typical of people who have not been here and have no idea of what they are talking about. Sadly, his type of uninformed, aggressive anti-Israel attitude is spreading.

Due to the bias of people who are in the media the general public are not being told the truth. Israel is the ONLY country in the Middle-East that is democratic, allows freedom of worship to all religions, protects the rights of women and gays, and holds its defense forces to the highest of standards--sometimes at the risk of their own lives. Arab-Israelis have more freedom and rights than in any other Arab country--anywhere. People like Downs refuse to listen to any opinion other than their own, drowning out truth and reason, while instigating baseless hatred.

Michael Coren, to his credit, has done his research, visited Gaza, and is not afraid to speak the truth. Good for him!

The Audacity of Dopes Band

As everyone is aware, the useful idiots of the left just don't know when to call it a day. Once again Latma shows the hypocrisy of those who seem to have way too much time (and funds) on their hands.

Their latest presentation, "Guns, Guns, Guns!", is performed for your entertainment by the Audacity of Dopes Band...Enjoy !

Ayaan Hirsi Ali~A Remarkable Woman

The AHA Foundation bio, will tell you that Ayaan Hirsi Ali 

"was born in Somalia and raised a devout Muslim. In 1992, Ayaan was married off by her father in a ceremony which she refused to attend. In order to escape this marriage, she fled to the Netherlands where she was given asylum, and eventually citizenship. After earning a degree in political science at the University of Leiden, she served as an elected member of the Dutch parliament for three years."

She became an active critic of Islam and an advocate for Women's Rights. The violations she campaigns against are the very same ones that she experienced herself. Along with her supporters, Ayaan Hirsi Ali founded the AHA Foundation in 2007, as a charitable organization to help protect and defend the rights of women in the West against militant Islam.

In 2004 she collaborated with Dutch filmaker Theo van Gogh on a film about Islam's mistreatment of women. On 02 November 2004, Theo van Gogh was brutally murdered in Amsterdam by a Morrocan Muslim. Since then, Ayaan Hirsi Ali has lived under a death threat and requires a 24 hour security guard for protection.

Her first book "Infidel", has won world acclaim, but of course, the Muslim media was hugely critical. In this interview she talks about her new memoir "Nomad" and about what the West should do to lessen the influence of radical Islam among Muslim immigrants. Following the interview is the eleven minute film, Submission, for which Theo van Gogh was murdered. I urge you to watch both...

Regardless of which side of the arguement you are on, I ask you to consider this, Why, should people be murdered for their opinions of Islam? Every religion (and non-religion) has been criticized, ridiculed and disected ad infinitum, but with Islam, suddenly our mouths are taped shut and we fear for our very lives--Why?  Why??

Chassidish Wedding With Outstanding Entertainment!

His name is Naftuli Shmiel Landau and he is seven years old. He is playing and singing for a  Chassidish wedding. How cute is that?!? 

Someone said this may be in Crown Heights, but I honestly have no idea. Anybody know where this wedding was? Regardless, I am sure the evening was blessed by this sweet little boy--this is truly my "feel good" post of the week...

* As per tradition you only see the men~the women are on the other side of the curtains.

Biased News Reporting and Multi-Culti Media...

For a long time now, honest people have seen the bias in papers such as the BBC and The Guardian. News media outlets who cry if a terrorist is killed, but when a family  (including a 3-month old baby) is butchered in their sleep they blame the victims.

Yet, the false, politically correct, leftist viewpoint has been allowed to continue to guide our society into the dumpster. Rarely does anyone speak out. 

Thank goodness, Pat Condell is not afraid to tell it like it may not like his language, but the facts of what he says is undeniable.

Arab Lies Can't Change HIstorical Facts...

The Arab propaganda machine is designed with the sole aim  of de-legitimizing the rights of the Jewish people to Israel. The Arab machine of myth making claims that Jews came to Israel after the holocaust and displaced the Arabs from their country. Historic FACT however rejects these Arab Lies, yet, the world is gradually accepting a "New History" funded by petro dollars.

From Torah commentaries to excavated homes and synagogues the Jewish presence in Israel for several thousand years is undeniable. Can archeology say the same for the Arabs?? NO?

Time Flies~But Better Late Than Never~Can I Say That?

Sometimes I get caught up in "life" and the days pass--too quickly. For me, time seems  to fly even faster here in Israel~seriously, many people who have made aliyah agree with me on this point!

Anyway--What I am trying to say is--two very important days have just passed that I have neglected to mention here. Because I think it is so vital to celebrate both days, I want to post my "two-bits worth"--even if it is late--call it Israeli time!

First, as a former Canuck, I admit that while I don't always agree with everything that may be happening back there, I still love my country of birth. Canada is a lot of different things to a lot of different people. For me there are too many to mention--wide open spaces, oceans, mountains, prairies--and that is just the land. I can list Hockey, Beer, Beavers,  Bears, The RCMP in their red tunics, the CanadarmDon Cherry, The Snowbirds---Does anybody out there remember The Golden Hawks?? or the Avro Arrow?? Most important are the awesome men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces, who have made us proud over the years and continue to do so.

There is so much more, but I think you get the picture. To all Canucks everywhere, Happy Canada Day!!--and in good Canuck tradition, crack a beer, sit back and enjoy this clip...(It's OK to Celebrate twice, eh)

Second but no less important is America's Fourth of July Celebrations. Canada and America share the longest border in the world, 8,891 kilometres (5,525 miles) long, including 2,475 kilometres (1,538 miles) shared with Alaska. We are "kind of like family"~we have our spats, but we'll stand together when danger raises it's head. Canadians shared the excitement of the First Man on the Moon, and cried for John F Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. as if they were our own.

America is much more than Baseball, Apple Pie and the Statue of LIberty. For me it is the people--from the Armed Forces personnel who cross oceans to defend the rights of the defenseless, to the ordinary citizens who go to untold lengths to help even the lowliest of creatures from the animal world. I chose the story of a rescued Bald Eagle named Challenger both because the eagle is the national symbol of America, and because this clip gives a glimpse of what America comprises. Happy Birthday to all Americans~Wherever You May Be!

Switzerland Holds an Anti-Semitic BBQ

I am not sure what to make of this story, but looking at the posters makes me feel very uncomfortable! I know that Switzerland has always been thought of as a neutral country--but it seems "hate" abounds even in "neutral" zones.

The picture to the left shows a doll with an arrow through his head, an Israeli flag and a kippa--that would indicate a Jew.

I saw this article on Philosemitism Blog, who posted that the ad was for a Swiss national day party planned for 01 August, by the extremist group GNC (Genève Non Conforme). As well as a doll wearing a kippa, an Israeli flag on it's chest with an arrow in its forehead there is an apple, invoking the legend of William Tell, with the slogan, “Save Switzerland: Shoot Straight!” in French. 
Okay, so this is a party for the Swiss National Day...hmmmm. Apparently the GNC claim it is not anti-semitic, but rather anti-Israel.  I wonder if they know that Israel is a Jewish country--and, the only Jewish country in the world? 

The poster above has been altered on their site, and is now minus the kippa. Oh, and they promise "music, roasted [!] food, beer and much more":  Should be quite a BBQ. 

What I find disturbing is the direct targeting of Jews, but it is not the Jews who are rioting, attacking women (and everyone else) and calling for Sharia law. Strange they don't depict  Muhammad with a sword and a Koran in his hand--but, what the heck, it is just so easy to blame the Jews, isn't it?

Do You know What Goods Gaza Receives?

With all the fuss about the Ships of Fools, one must ask; Exactly What is it that Gaza needs? Here are some facts. Questions anybody?

Israel, Jerusalem, Judaism, Zionism, Middle East, Aliyah, Conversion, and everything else that pops up
