Canada's Foreign Minister in Israel declares 'delegitimization is 'the new anti-Semitism"

(Israel National News) Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird, visitng Israel this week, stressed his country's strong support of Israel.

“Israel has no greater friend in the world than Canada,” MP Baird said at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial on Monday. Speaking at the 12th annual Herzliya Conference later that evening, Baird called the delegitimization and demonization of Israel the "new anti-Semitism."

MP Baird declares to Israelis at the annual IDC Policy Conference in Herzliya: "I can assure you, Canada will stand with you . . . Canada will stand beside you- shoulder to shoulder." 


'Obama betrayed America's friend, Israel, to Islamism'- Gov. Mike Huckabee; Sparks infighting among American Jews

In this exclusive interview, former Presidential candidate, ex-Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee denounces President Barack Hussein Obama over his complicity in not stopping Iran's nuclear weaponizing militarily- and straightjacketing of Israel from acting in their own defense.



Atlanta Jewish Times' publisher, Andrew Adler, penned "What Would You Do," an allegory intended to illustrate the security dilemma that President Barack Hussein Obama's pacificism towards apocalyptic Iran poses for the leader responsible for the safety of Jews.  (Read editorial below).

As a potential strategy under consideration by Israel's Prime Minister seeking to pre-empt an Iranian initiated nuclear exchange, Mr. Adler references the "almost unfathomable" option of the authorizing the Mossad to neutralize Obama and threaten the Vice President.  Members of the Jewish establishment, such as the Jewish Federation of Atlanta, the A.D.L., the A.J.C., and Rabbi Abe Cooper of the Simon Wisenthal Center were quick and harsh to discredit and ostracize Mr. Adler. He was put under investigation by the US Secret Service. The Atlanta Jewish Federation pressured him to resign editiorship and put the paper up for sale.  You can see how they broke Mr. Adler's spirit entirely in this pathetic mea culpa video with the Atlanta Interfaith Broadcasters.



Rabbi Moshe Parry comments (in this exclusive video) that the Jewish "establishment" in North America "served Mr. Adler up" out of fear from perceptions of Jewish dual-allegiance to Israel. He alleges the largely secular Democrat, Jewish establishment prioritized their comfort in America over their Judaic obligations to protect and guarantee Jewish dominion of the Holy Land, Israel.

Zionist shepherd, Avraham Herzlich, tends the flock over the Samarian landscape with devotion to G-d and a wisdom born of pain

When his daughter Talia was murdered with husband Benjamin Zeev Kahane, Avraham Herzlich, a Brooklyn-born shepherd resettled his flock from the North of Israel down to Kfar Tapuach, to help care for his 6 orphaned grandchildren. Watch his hard-earned perspectives tending his flock of 250 upon the pastures of Samaria- upon the 12th anniversary of their family's (and indeed Israel's) tragic, public sacrifice.

Yaffa Yarkoni, 1925-2012: The voice of Israel in war and peace

Yaffa Yarkoni, one of Israel's greatest and best-loved singers, passed away Sunday in Tel Aviv at the age of 86, following a battle with Alzheimer's disease.

Lyricist Avi Koren, a close friend of the singer's for 45 years, recalled yesterday that Yarkoni, an Israel Prize laureate, once said to him: "Look how I am fooling the entire world - after all, I have no voice."

"She may not have had a voice, but she was the voice of the country. My mother listened to Yaffa Yarkoni; my grandson listens to Yaffa Yarkoni; and she accompanied us, the members of my generation, all our lives," Koren said yesterday."At the age of four, we sang her children's songs; as teenagers, we danced to the sounds of her ballroom tunes. During the Six-Day War, she came to perform at outposts at which our friends fought. She was there all the time."

Yaffa Yarkoni was known as the singer of the wars, a tradition that began during her own IDF service in the War of Independence.


She was known as the singer of the wars, a sobriquet that she detested, but when Yaffa Yarkoni, Israel’s queen of song who delighted generations of children, soldiers and all audiences died on Sunday only a week after her 86th birthday, she was remembered more for fading out of the limelight.
