The Islamo-Leftist political movement won a victory in overcoming Los Angeles civic and Jewish objections to University of California at Los Angeles ("UCLA") hosting Students for Justice in Palestine's the National Conference.



L.A. City Councilman Paul Koretz and the L.A. City Council appealed to UCLA Chancellor Gene Block to decline hosting the NSJP Conference. Block claimed in a press release he was legally obliged to. However, UCLA denied conservative author, Milo Yianopolous a venue on the same campus. Councilman Koretz explains his perspective in this video interview.


In May 2018, Students Supporting Israel at UCLA put on a club lecture featuring Jewish, Kurdish and Armenian people presenting their connection to their lands. Watch how Students for Justice in Palestine menaced and threatens the presenters and attendees, vandalized their personal property, and maliciously took-over the event.




Mr. Ali Adi, an Arab-Israeli citizen flew to UCLA with Reservists on Duty to contest the SJP conference and present his favorable life experience as a Muslim-Israeli to those who will listen. He expresses his view of the SJP movement and their leftist JVP colleagues exploiting Palestinians for political gain. 


An attempt to chronicle the SJP conference check-in was rebuffed by JVP's Estee Chandler and a representative from SJP. A request for a spokesperson to discuss the conference was declined.

Jewish parents protest Muslim SJP-club's bigotry and hostility towards Jewish students on UCLA campus - at SJP's Nat'l Convention hosted at UCLA, 11/18/18. Protesters assert that campus police reverse-discriminating leaves Jewish students vulnerable to potential Muslim/Palestinian-supporters' hostility.


Christian-Israeli, Jonathan Elkhoury, explains his experience of Israel as free and just - in contradiction to the national convention of (Muslim) "Students for Justice in Palestine" who advocate overthrow of the Judeo-Christian oasis in the Middle East - at Univ of California at Los Angeles, Friday Nov 16, 2018.

To avenge SJP's busting-up SSI's "Indigenous Peoples United" Event at UCLA in May, leaders of Students Supporting Israel infiltrated the highly-guarded Students for Justice in Palestine conference - to unfurl an Israeli flag on-stage. We interviewed the other avenger, Ilan Sinelnikov, National President of Students Supporting Israel.




Mr. Ali Adi, a Muslim-Israeli disputes the intentions and claims of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) outside the opening of their 2018 National Convention at University of Southern California (U.C.L.A.) Nov. 16, 2018.



Arab-Muslim, Ali Adi, came to UCLA to present an impression about Israel's free society for Muslims (and other minorities) in contrast to the Far-Left/Islamist activist convention of S.J.P. being held on the UCLA campus. Mr. Ali Adi was the guest of the Univ of Calif club, Students Supporting Israel, who have been menaced in the past year by the anti-Israel activist, Students for "Justice" in Palestine on California campuses.



Islamo-Leftist activists have garnered power by scapegoating "colonial Zionists" for impeding Palestinian sovereignty. The global exposure of Palestinian "sufferage" at Israel's hand (typically provoked (or faked) by kleptocrat, Palestinian politicians) vilifies Jews all around the world. 

Anti-Israelism is so strong in liberal Ireland, for example, that their capital city which once elected a Jewish man Mayor of Dublin, that  much of Ireland's Jewish population preceded France's Jews in emigrating from Europe. North Americans are now fighting in common cause with European Jewry against Leftist anti-Semitism cloaked in anti-Israelism, particularly noticeable on-campuses.

Hebron Community spokesman (retired), David Wilder, showed JooTube the Jewish perspective of Hebron. He shows us the synagogue built atop the Cave of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs, explains how the Jews keep this area safe for Jews and Christians to worship, and shows us the contentious conditions the Muslim impose upon Judeo-Christian worshippers.

The Hebron Fund offers English speakers an opportunity to experience this unique Shabbat with trained tour guides  and a chance to hobnob with political celebrities like law professor Eugene Kontorovich of the Kohelet Policy Forum. 


Shabbat Hebron has humble beginnings in the 1990s and today has grown to thousands with last year's weekend breaking the record at 35,000 people. The highlight of course is the Tomb of Machpela complex, built 2,000 years ago by King Herod the Great to house the Cave of the Matriarchs & Patriarchs. The atmosphere of Shabbat Hebron is both festive and with a sense of purpose. Tents dot the lawn across the the Cave of the Patriarchs as people camp out and picnic for Shabbat. Of course the reading of Parshat Chayei Sarah takes on a greater significance, as one stands in the Tomb of Machpela while hearing of our Abraham purchased the site as a final resting place for his beloved wife Sarah. After Shabbat, the festive scene continues as music fills the streets from BBQs. 

Special tours that take place during the weekend are the Hall of Isaac and Rebecca, a section of the Machpela complex that includes the actual entrance into the underground double cave. Tours of the historic casbah and Tomb of Otniel Ben Knaz will also take place. The Hebron Fund will be again sponsoring a special program for English speakers. 


Parshat Chayei Sarah: On Judaism and Islam 
by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks in Algemeiner Oct 30, 2018

The language of the Torah is, in Erich Auerbach’s famous phrase, “fraught with background.” Behind the events that are openly told are shadowy stories left for us to decipher. Hidden beneath the surface of Parshat Chayei Sarah, for example, is another story, alluded to only in a series of hints. There are three clues in the text.

The first occurs when Abraham’s servant is returning with the woman who is to become Isaac’s wife. As Rebecca sees Isaac in the distance, we are told that he is “coming from the way of Be’er-laĥai-ro’i” (24:62) to meditate in the field. The placement is surprising. Thus far we have situated the patriarchal family at Be’ersheva, to which Abraham returns after the binding of Isaac, and Hebron, where Sarah dies and is buried. What is this third location, Be’er-laĥai-ro’i, and what is its significance?

The second is the extraordinary final stage of Abraham’s life. In chapter after chapter we read of the love and faithfulness Abraham and Sarah had for one another. Together they embarked on a long journey to an unknown destination. Together, they stood against the idolatry of their time. Twice, Sarah saved Abraham’s life by pretending to be his sister. They hoped and prayed for a child and endured the long years of childlessness until Isaac was born. Then Sarah’s life draws to a close. She dies. Abraham mourns and weeps for her and buys a cave in which she is buried, and he is to be buried beside her. We then expect to read that Abraham lived out the rest of his years alone before being placed beside “Sarah his wife” (Gen. 25:10) in the “Cave of Machhpelah” (Gen. 25:9).

Unexpectedly, however, once Isaac is married, Abraham marries a woman named Keturah and has six children by her. We are told nothing else about this woman, and the significance of the episode is unclear. The Torah does not include mere incidental details. We have no idea, for example, what Abraham looked like. We do not even know the name of the servant he sent to find a wife for Isaac. Tradition tells us that it was Eliezer, but the Torah itself does not. What then is the significance of Abraham’s second marriage and how is it related to the rest of the narrative?

The third clue to the hidden story is revealed in the Torah’s description of Abraham’s death:
And Abraham expired, and died in a good old age, an old man, and full of years, and was gathered to his people. Isaac and Ishmael, his sons, buried him in the Cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is before Mamre, the field which Abraham purchased of the children of Het. There was Abraham buried, and Sarah his wife. (Gen. 25:8–10)
