"Anti-Zionism is racism!" Academics fight leftist/philo-Arab revisionists 68-years after UN ratified Jewish State in Palestine

On Nov 29, 1947 the U.N. ratified Resolution 181 the Plan to Partition Palestine, legitimizing a Jewish (and Arab) state in Palestine. Israeli-born, Prof. Judea Pearl considers this Resolution 181, "the most pivotal event in Jewish history since the destruction of the Second (King Solomon's) Temple."

Judea and Mrs. Ruth Pearl at Amer Jewish Univ performance
The guest of Mrs. Ruth Pearl, Father Alexei Smith, of the Southern California Ecumenical Council believes that as Judaism is at the root of Christianity, the Catholic Church supports Israel as the Jewish homeland.



At Beth Jacob Congregation this month, Dr. Pearl reiterated  about his concern in his Op/Eds in the Jewish Journal  about the B.D.S. (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) movement attempting to limit the Univ of Calif's terms opposing anti-Semitism to exempt anti-Zionism. Dr. Pearl declared that to deny of the central Jewish tenet of Zionism (sovereignty back in the Jewish homeland) is bigoted racism. He also appealed for UCLA community intervention against "Ziono-phobia" in the definition and climate on campus. 


"The UC’s new dilemma: to name or not to name"

 by Judea Pearl, November 3, 2015, Jewish Journal
As I have argued previously in these pages, among the phobias that currently drive campus racism, Zionophobia trumps anti-Semitism, and therefore, treating anti-Zionism as the lesser of the two evils gives racist forces the legitimacy to continue their assaults unabated, under the cover of a “political debate,” exempt from norms of discourse that protect other campus groups from similar attacks. I believe not only UCLA, but also the University of California Regents, must explicitly name “anti-Zionism” as a major contributor to campus intolerance, and a major threat to the academic climate. ... 
The UC Regents know that Zionophobia is the main source of campus intolerance and hostility, and yet the word “Zionism” — a people’s quest for self determination — has never been identified as a moral imperative by those in charge of campus climate. You can’t cure a problem unless you name it! The effectiveness of any recommendation or report summing up the regents’ deliberations hinges upon one simple word: Zionism. 
Dr. Richard Cravatts, president of Scholars for Peace in the Middle-East, confronts this issue on an ongoing basis and spoke with JewTube.Info last semester about the movement hijacking academia.

Jewish-American veteran families who fought tyranny carry forward - some from Israel

Members of the Jewish War Veterans of America participate in Veterans Day parades across America. JWV Posts from Los Angeles participate in an annual, Veterans Day Parade ride- with veterans of WWII on the first floor of their double-decker bus. I accompanied World War II veterans Stan Salmore; Jack Pathman; Harris Frischer, and Paul Cohen last year. Mr. Frischer tells of his incarceration by the Nazis.
Major Stanley Rowen
Sgt. Cmdr. Zachary Taylor

Mrs. Allyson Rowen Taylor continues her family's fight against tyranny. Her father, Distinguished Flying-Cross recipient, Major Stanley Rowen served in the US Air Force effort since World War II. In order to fly within the anti-semitic U.S.A.F., Stanley he 
changed his name and removed his religion from his dog tags- which was consequently omitted from his military tombstone.

Allyson's first-born son, Zachary had already enlisted in the I.D.F. at the time of this interview at the Los Angeles National Cemetery in 2010- and served as a Sergeant Commander in Israel's Givati Brigade- also serving in Operation Cast Lead in Gaza. 



Comments were recorded at the Veterans' National Cemetery in Los Angeles on the day of Israel's blockage of the Mavi Marmara incursion in May, 2010. The issue has reemerged in the news this week - as part of the IslamoNazi movement which grows through the vilifying of Jews through the Jewish state. 


Turks torture Israeli who boarded the Mavi Marmara
"ICC prosecutor ordered again to consider reopening Mavi Marmara case" Jewish Telegraphic Agency November 9, 2015

The International Criminal Court again has ordered a prosecutor to reconsider her decision not to investigate war crimes allegations against Israel in the Mavi Marmara flotilla case. A panel of ICC judges in a 3-2 vote Friday dismissed an appeal by ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda that she not reopen the case as requested by a different panel in July. 

The assassination of Rav Meir Kahane- al-Qaeda's first terror attack on US soil- Lessons on 26th anniversary

Rabbi Meir Kahane is known as a stalwart defender of the safety of the Jewish people's safety. But he was also a great religious scholar, writer, and leader many consider the author of "Why Be Jewish" and several other books a tzaddik and prophet.
This National Geographic documentary illustrates the connection between the murderers of Rav Kahane, the first Al Qaeda terror act on American soil, and the 1993 World Trade Center bombing - which it is alleged could have been averted had the FBI & NYPD been able to better investigate the radical materials of El Sayid Nosair, convicted for assassinating Rav Kahane November 5th, 1990- and as Debbie Schlussel writes:
Nosair’s trial was a travesty of epic proportions. The moronic O.J. Simpson-style jury acquitted Nosair (defended by Marxist Jewish self-hater William Kunstler) of murder charges, even though it was clear that he planned the murder of Rabbi Kahane and meticulously carried it out in front of a room full of witnesses. Thankfully, the courageous judge overseeing the case, Judge Alvin Schlesinger, said the jury’s acquittal “was against the overwhelming weight of evidence and was devoid of common sense and logic,” and he sentenced Nosair to the maximum number of years possible, under the charges for which he was convicted–seven to 22 years. Sadly, Nosair may soon get out, as he was sentenced in 1992. Even if he does the maximum 22, that means he’ll be out by 2015.


Rabbi Kahane had intended to bring his message to Los Angeles' Beth Jacob Synagogue after his Marriott appearance.  If the congregational rabbi would not honor some congregants request for him to speak inside the sanctuary, Rabbi Kahane declared that he would speak outside on the street. 

Rabbi Moshe Parry appeared this year outside Beth Jacob to honor Rabbi Kahane's ideology- published below.




"Just Who Stole Eretz Yisrael?" - "G-d is Creator of the Universe and Owner and Master of the earth and all that it contains: "The Earth is the L-rd's, and the fullness thereof" (Ps. 24:1). He gave Eretz Yisrael to the Jewish People as their land, to enable them to fulfill their mission of building a state and society in accordance with the laws and foundations of the Holy Torah: "He gave them the lands of nations; they inherited people's toils, that they might keep His statutes and observe His laws" (Ps. 105:44-45). As far as Eretz Yisrael, no apologies or justifications are necessary. The Jewish People came to the land where the seven nations dwelled and took it from them by decree of the Owner, G-d. G-d uprooted the nations who dwelled there and brought in His chosen people, Israel, because the land is His and does not belong to those who lived there as occupants.

A Jew must realize that everything -- the world, punishment, even he himself -- is under G-d's exclusive domain".

Defending the Jewish homeland requires a communal effort- shows Friends of the IDF (F.I.D.F.) fundraiser in Los Angeles

Haim Saban poses with IDF soldiers at fundraiser

Friends of the IDF, Western Region returned to Beverly Hills to fundraise $31 million by showing the impressive work they do with and for IDF soldiers, current and veterans.

As filming was prohibited at this year's ceremony (which featured a performance by The Beach Boys, curated by producer David Foster) at last year's ceremony, US Army Master Sergeant Select Greg Grutter of "Heroes to Heroes" demonstrated an example of the Israeli-soldier-support services that philanthropists Haim Saban and Leo David advocate for.

 
Leo David donated $1 million to Friends of Israel Defense Forces
F.I.D.F. brings actual soldiers, male and female, to meet Americans and share their perspectives as free-societies trying to defending ourselves from the Islamist revolution.

JewTube has chronicled some of the entertainment which attracts donors to the frequently, sold-out fund-raiser.
