Shame on Natalie Portman

by Ronn Torossian (Arutz Sheva)

Israeli born Actress Natalie Portman today announced she would not take part in the prize ceremony for the Genesis Prize, slated to be held in Israel in June 2018. The Genesis Prize Foundation, which awards what it calls the “Jewish Nobel,” had previously named Ms. Portman this year’s awardee, until she notified Genesis that“ recent events in Israel have been extremely distressing to her and she does not feel comfortable participating in any public events in Israel” and that “she cannot in good conscience move forward with the ceremony.”

 The Genesis Prize Foundation cancelled the prize ceremony, saying that its organizers “fear that Ms. Portman’s decision will cause our philanthropic initiative to be politicized, something we have worked hard for the past five years to avoid.” Shame on Natalie Portman for bowing to those who boycott Israel. Israel’s Culture Minister Miri Regev hit it right on the head noting that,“ …Natalie Portman fell into the hands of the BDS supporters. Portman, a Jewish actress born in Israel, joins those who tell the successful, wondrous founding of the State of Israel as 'a tale of darkness and darkness.'

 Sane people must agree with Hillel Neuer of UN Watch who told Portman that “If 30,000 rioters were at your borders ; approaching your family in Los Feliz, and they were orchestrated by a terror group that advocates the murder of all Jews, I believe you would 'in good consicience' support officers doing their best to protect you.” Israel is the only real democracy in the Middle East, where all religions are protected, where women have equal rights. Israel is a beacon of light.
Shame on Natalie Portman for standing against Israel.
The Genesis Prize “honors individuals who serve as an inspiration to the next generation of Jews through their outstanding professional achievement along with their commitment to Jewish values and the Jewish people.” They must revoke their decision to award her the prize immediately.

Shame on Natalie Portman

Being "Fashionable" at Barnard College

Dry Bones cartoon, Israel,BDS, boycott, divest, academia, Palestine, Barnard,Jewish Voice for Peace, JVP,
Delegitimizing Israel is quite fashionable in academia these days, and the women of Barnard College do want to be fashionable.

According to the Forward:

One Of The Most Jewish Colleges In The Country Just Voted For BDS By Nearly 2-1 Margin

Students at Barnard College, the elite women’s school in New York City, voted this week to ask the university administration to divest from eight companies that do business in Israel.

The referendum, which was written by students from Jewish Voice for Peace and Students for Justice in Palestine, listed ways that companies like Hyundai, Boeing and the Israeli national water carrier Mekorot allegedly violate international law, before asking whether the student government should encourage Barnard to divest from companies that “profit from or engage in the State of Israel’s treatment of Palestinians.”

The 64%-36% victory for the boycott, divestment and sanctions campaign came at what Hillel International describes as the most heavily Jewish school in the country that is not officially Jewish. There are approximately 850 Jewish students at Barnard out of a total undergraduate population of around 2,500. Some 1,153 participated in the vote.

Yom HaShoah

Dry Bones cartoon, Israel, Shoah, Holocaust, Yom HaShoah, Warsaw Ghetto, Nazism, Israel, holiday,Jews, Jewish culture,

The background of today's image is the New York Times May 7 1943 report of the Warsaw Uprising.

The Jewish holiday of Yom HaShoah ( Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Day) is a national day of commemoration in Israel, on which the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust and the Jewish resistance to the Nazis are memorialized.

In Israel, it is a national memorial day. On the evening which begins the observance, there is a state ceremony at the Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes Authority, Yad Vashem. At 10am on the day of Yom HaShoah, air-raid sirens are sounded and people across the country stop what they are doing and stand at attention in respect of the fallen.. Places of public entertainment are closed and flags on public buildings are flown at half mast.

The original proposal was to hold Yom HaShoah on the 14th of the Hebrew month of Nisan, the date of the Warsaw ghetto uprising (April 19, 1943), but this was problematic because the 14th of Nisan is the day immediately before Passover. The date was therefore moved to the 27th of Nisan, which is eight days before Yom Ha'atzma'ut,(Israeli Independence Day)

In 2018 Yom HaShoah begins in the evening of Wednesday, April 11 and ends in the evening of Thursday, April 12.
