Islamic Apartheid Week  

Dear Friend,

Earlier this week, I sent you an email about the advertisement the Freedom Center will be running in campus newspapers at Colleges and Universities around the country. Today, I wanted to share with you an article, written by the Center’s Daniel Greenfield, which illustrates why getting this ad distributed as far and wide as possible is so critical.

I hope you’ll take a moment to read this article, and if you haven’t already, make a generous, tax-deductible donation to support our efforts.

Thanks, David Horowitz, FRONT PAGE MAG

A Double Standard on Hate

By Daniel Greenfield

Every year college campuses across the country hold a festival of hatred aimed at Jews and the Jewish State. Israeli Apartheid Week has become notorious for the targeted harassment of Jewish students, support for Hamas and even physical violence.

This year the David Horowitz Freedom Center has responded to Israeli Apartheid Week with Islamic Apartheid Week. Unlike Israeli Apartheid Week, which is based on a lie, Islamic Apartheid Week addresses the sexism, homophobia and religious bigotry threatening minorities in the Muslim world. To promote Islamic Apartheid Week, the Freedom Center attempted to place an ad in forty college papers.

Expert: U.S.Doing No Favors in Giving Israel Special Ally Status  

Gil Ronen, INN

The U.S. is not doing Israel any favors by granting it special status as a strategic ally, according to New York based strategy expert Mark Langfan. He predicts a domino effect in which other U.S. allies in the region would collapse, if, G-d forbid, Israel does..
“Without Israel, Cyprus and Saudi Arabia are toast,” Langfan told Arutz Sheva, “and they know it.”
“Without Israel, oil would be $1,000 a barrel. Without Israel, the US would have to fund an extra $200 billion yearly defense budget to defend southern NATO countries from a Muslim caliphate’s northward tsunami.”

Getting Rich by Fighting for the Poor  

Obama and Chavez are birds-of-a feather

By Daniel Greenfield,

Hugo Chavez’s death was met with tributes from Iran, Bolivia, China and El Salvador. The Western left did not waste much time adding their withered roses to El Comandante’s coffin. George Galloway called him another Spartacus. Jimmy Carter described him as a leader who fought for the “neglected and trampled”. Michael Moore praised him for declaring that the oil belongs to the people.

Whether or not the oil belongs to the people is a matter of some debate considering how much of it seemed to end up in Chavez’s pocket. (Read more…)

IDF Most ‘Female Friendly’ Army in the World  

More than one third of the army’s “enlisted men” are women

By David Lev, INN

The IDF is the world’s most female-friendly army, statistics released Thursday showed. More than one third of the army’s “enlisted men” are women, according to the IDF Spokesperson’s office.

At 34%, the number of women in the IDF is the highest of any army in the world. The reason, of course, is because women are required to serve in the army, unless they serve in the National Service, as many girls from religious families do. According to many rabbinical sources, women are not permitted to serve as soldiers in uniform, and the National Service program gives them an opportunity to serve their country, working in hospitals, schools, and other institutions that are often short-handed.

Coalition deal to require peace treaty referendum  

We are not near a peace treaty. What about interim agreements or unilateral actions, Ted Belman


Coalition talks continued to inch forward on Thursday, with only nine days left until the deadline for Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to form a government.

The Likud Beytenu and Bayit Yehudi negotiating teams met in the evening and agreed to some of the terms of their coalition agreement, foremost of which being that any peace treaty will be brought to a national referendum before being ratified by the Knesset.

In addition, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s June 2009 Bar-Ilan speech, in which he called for the establishment of a demilitarized Palestinian state, will not be mentioned in the coalition’s guidelines.

Obama. No ‘grand peace plan’… NOW  

Obama says he will deliver a plan of his own in 6 to 12 month. It will not vary from his ’67 lines with swaps. will he include Ariel or Maaleh in Israel? What about Area E1?” He certainly will divide Jerusalem. A divided Jerusalem has implications for E1. He will give it to the Palestinians. Will he be so stupid as to deliver such a plan. It will anger both sides. Ted Belman

Yitzhak Benhorin, YNET

WASHINGTON – US President Barack Obama said Thursday that his upcoming trip to Israel will serve to illustrate the United States’ unshakable commitment to Israel in the backdrop of the turmoil in the Middle East.

The visit will also provide him with an opportunity to send Iran a message that the US will not back out of its commitment to prevent it from obtaining nuclear weapons.

The president noted that he will pressure Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to enter into dialogue but stressed he will not introduce a “grand peace plan” during the visit, but rather in another six to 12 months.
