    Yair Lapid would win new elections, poll finds  

    What is Yair Lapid’s attraction. Please comment.

    In the (still unlikely) event Netanyahu fails to assemble a coalition and Israelis have to vote again, Likud will plummet, setting the stage for Yesh Atid 


    If Israel were to go to another round of elections, Yair Lapid’s centrist Yesh Atid party would become the largest party in Knesset and the former TV anchor would likely be named prime minister, while Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud-Beytenu party would plummet, a poll published Thursday showed.

    The poll, ordered and released by the Knesset Channel, showed that if elections were to be held now, Yesh Atid would catapult to become the largest party by an overwhelming margin, up to 30 seats from its current 19. The rightwing-Orthodox Jewish Home party would also gain, climbing from 12 to 15 seats. Read more…

    Attacks on Jews soar 82% in France  

    French Jewish Leader: “The Number of Anti-Semitic Acts Has Exploded”

    “Far from raising awareness, the attacks in Toulouse and Sarcelles were followed by a dramatic increase in anti-Semitic attacks,” the report stated. Of course, the Muslims are emboldened by the depraved and coldblooded attacks of Islamic Jew hatred.
    Contrary to the Muslim lies of Muslim Brotherhood groups like Hamas-CAIR, Jew hating attacks are at worldwide record levels while mythical islamophobia “hate crime” barely registers at all. Despite the realities the enemedia traffics in this Muslim mythology embarrassing themselves time and time again.

    David Solway: The Birth Certificate and the Conspiracy of Suppression  

    Below is an original essay by David Solway, but first an introduction.

    by:Diana West

    There are at least two basic ways to approach the signal, neutralizing event of American history.

    Before I present examples of both by a singular guest-author, I realize I first have to specify what that signal event is. Our non-recognition is testament to many things, not least of which is the event’s almost anti-climactic nature. We might think of the event as only the most visible manifestation, like a sore or lesion, of an underlying sickness in American society that more intangibly has rejected morality, bankrupted the law, and devalued the Constitution. Maybe the shame of it all is why we pretend this manifestation isn’t there.

    I refer to the president’s all-but-certainly forged online birth certificate. How could a healthy society with a free press and functioning political system permit this quite apparent fraud to go officially unaddressed and forensically unassessed by any responsible federal authority? It could not. It would be impossible for a healthy democratic society to behave so irresponsiblly, so undutifully, so cravenly. Thus, we are not a healthy, democratic society; nor have we been for some time leading up to this signal presidential fraud. (The new book, American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character, is a history of that transformation.)

    Egypt’s Military Signals Impatience With Morsi  


    Egypt’s powerful military is showing signs of growing impatience with the country’s Islamist leaders, indirectly criticizing their policies and issuing thinly veiled threats that it might seize power again.

    The tension is raising the specter of another military intervention much like the one in 2011, when generals replaced longtime authoritarian leader Hosni Mubarak after they sided with anti-regime protesters in their 18-day popular uprising.

    The strains come at a time when many Egyptians are despairing of an imminent end to the crippling political impasse between President Mohammed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood group on one side, and the mostly secular and liberal opposition on the other.
