Getting the word out through domain names

The following list of websites are pro-Israel, even though the names might suggest otherwise:

JIA wants to encourage this type of activity since such websites will capture the attention of people who might pass by a site with an obvious pro-Israel name. Unfortunately some Internet users will not even click on a link unless it seems to agree with their preconceived ideas. To try to reach them, some method like this is needed.

These websites vary in content and quality, but all types of sites are needed to reach people with different mindsets and varying attitudes. If you, or someone you know, needs help with a pro-Israel or Jewish website, please contact JIA.

Daniel Pipes speaks to congressional committee about Saudi Arabia

Hearing on “Should the United States Do More to Help U.S. Citizens Held against Their Will in Saudi Arabia?” - testimony by Daniel Pipes. Long and worth reading. (Thanks, Charles/LGF.)

Naomi Ragen sics congress on NPR - let's help her!

Read this press release from Congressman Sherman's office.

Schweitzer's proposal

Dwight Owen Schweitzer lists 18 points, truths that must be acknowledged. As he points out himself, there's enough in there to make everyone mad at him. (The one that hit my hot button: giving even a piece of Jerusalem to the "Palestinians.")

But such objections aside, this is by far the best starting place I have seen for a sane proposal.

On the other hand, I think it has a snowball's chance in Hell of being entertained for more than three seconds by the other side. Nonetheless, it could serve as a rallying point for our highly-fragmented team, and yet another demonstration to the world of our reasonableness.

And on the third hand, though I hate to admit it--it won't make a bit of difference to the world, who hates Jews for being Jews.

The Baby Face of Hate

The Baby Face of Hate, in The Daily Standard, should help anyone who is honestly trying to understand whether peace with Muslims is possible. (Thanks, Charles/LGF.)

Tisha B'Av Walk

Join Women in Green in Jerusalem on July 17 for their annual Tisha B'Av Walk around the walls of the city!

It's time to plug our ears

In Israelinsider, Michael Freund says we need to do what's good for the Jews - even if the world doesn't like it.

Startling trends in American Judaism

Writing from Gush Etzion, Yehoshua Mizrachi points out the disintegration of Judaism in America. His response - return to Torah and the Land - is clearly a minority choice. But where is a better one for American Jews?

Poll: Majority of Palestinians See Israel's Elimination as Goal

This report from Reuters does not surprise me at all. "What you do speaks so loud I can't hear what you say." When "Palestinians" talk peace, they are really saying, "Hold still for a minute..."

Look at their faces

Eyal and Yael Sorek, 23 and 21, and their almost-born baby were murdered yesterday in Karmei Tzur.

How long will we tolerate this horror? What has to happen before we put a stop to this desecration of all we hold holy? So far, our clear message to Arafat and all his Jew-hating friends is that terror accomplishes their ends, and we will make only token responses.

Why do we keep acting as though the Arabs share our values? THEY DON'T!
