Dry Bones: Why Have Cartoons Been Used Throughout History by Anti-Semites?
Yaakov Kirschen, award-winning creator of the long-running Dry Bones cartoons, explains to VOI's Judy Lash Balint why he's recruiting for a new campaign to fight anti-Semitism. Kirschen, who has been dubbed 'the cartoonist of the Jewish people' tells Judy how he got his start at Playboy magazine, and why cartoons have been used by anti-Semites throughout history.
"Recognition of Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people is the basis of any future peace accord, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday, responding to critics both domestic and abroad claiming that the controversial “Jewish state” legislation will water down the country's democratic character." -more
(CNN) -- "Screams of outrage. Crowds marching down streets, blocking intersections and interstates. Fists raised in silence.
As the Ferguson grand jury's decision was announced Monday night, protesters around the country -- who had begun to gather hours earlier -- responded in solidarity. In New York, a roving crowd wound its way through the city, surging to more than 1,000 in Times Square before heading toward the Upper West Side, CNN's Miguel Marquez tweeted.

I thought it would be fun (and timely) to dress it up as a Dry Bones cartoon.
"Until the 1960s, name “Palestine” resonated as something Jewish to peoples ears. The 4,000 year old Jewish homeland or “Land of Israel” or the “Holy Land” were all synonymous!!

(CNSNews.com) – “The Jewish state is the only safe place where the Christians of the Holy Land live in safety,” Fr. Gabriel Naddaf, a Greek Orthodox priest from Israel, told the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in September.
“The earth of the Middle East is soaked with the blood of Christians being killed daily,” Naddaf said in testimony released Wednesday by the non-governmental organization, UN Watch."
The priest pointed to the grim statistic that the Christian population of the Middle East has gone from 20 percent at the start of the 20th century to only around 4 percent today.
“If we look at the Middle East, Mr. President, we realize there’s only one safe place where Christians are not persecuted. One place where they are protected, enjoying freedom of worship and expression, living in peace and not subjected to killing and genocide,” Naddaf said.
“It is Israel, the country I live in. The Jewish state is the only safe place where the Christians of the Holy Land live in safety.-more
If you are considering Aliyah, come to Israel for a brief trip. If you are a college student, there are excellent opportunities that allow you to visit Israel with minimal cost (see Birthright Israel programs). In your first trip to Israel, dedicate time to absorb the history of our nation in archaeological sites and museums. Travel the whole length of Israel from the Golan Heights in the North to Eilat in the South seeing the natural beauty, and richness of the Land of Israel. Rest your eyes before the vast bare scenes of the Judean Desert and imagine yourself at the time of the early Hebrew patriarchs. It is here on the hills of Yehuda and Shomron (Judea and Samaria) that your great-great ... grandparents changed the course of human history with their monotheistic belief. Go to markets and modern shopping centers and feel the diversity and richness of Israel. If you leave Israel with a touch of feeling that an ancient primordial chord has been struck deep inside you, if you feel a sense of belonging to this special people and the scenes of the land of Israel, you can continue the journey to your ancient past."-more
Fatah blames Hamas for Gaza bombings
Friday, 7 November 2014
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah movement blamed Islamist movement Hamas for series of bomb attacks against the homes of Fatah leaders in the Gaza Strip overnight.
“The Fatah central committee condemns the crimes which took place this morning against its leaders and lays the responsibility for these crimes upon Hamas,” senior Fatah official Nasser al-Qidwa told a news conference in the West Bank city of Ramallah.
At least 10 explosions hit houses and cars belonging to senior Fatah members but no casualties were reported.
Hussein al-Sheikh, another member of the Fatah leadership, said he had “no doubt of the fact that Hamas bears the responsibility for what happened to Fatah leaders in Gaza.
”Hamas ousted Abbas loyalists from Gaza in 2007”."-more
Chairman of the joint chiefs of staff says US military learning from Israel's "extraordinary lengths" to limit collateral damage and civilian casualties."Washington sent a team of senior officers to Israel in September to learn from Israel’s tactics in Operation Protective Edge in Gaza over the summer, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey said on Thursday.Dempsey praised the Israel Defense Forces for taking “extraordinary lengths to limit collateral damage and civilian casualties” in its war against Hamas. The terrorist organization, Dempsey said, “had become very nearly a subterranean society,” burrowing underground and hiding among the civilian population.“We sent a team of senior officers and non-commissioned officers over to work with the IDF to get the lessons from that particular operation in Gaza,” he told an audience at the Carnegie Endowment.He referred to the group of officers as the “lessons learned team.”Dempsey noted Israel’s development of new techniques, such as “roof knocking,” warning residents of an incoming strike.“They would display leaflets to warn citizens and population to move away from where these tunnels,” the general said. “But look – in this kind of conflict, where you are held to a standard that your enemy is not held to, you’re going to be criticized for civilian casualties.”."-more
"The attack occurred in two separate locations in the capital.
The injured were rushed to Hadassah University Medical Centers at Ein Karem and Mount Scopus. A few of the other injured were treated at the scene.
Medical officials said that two of those hospitalized are seriously hurt, four are moderately injured, and three suffered light wounds.
The driver rammed his vehicle into crowds at two separate locations near the light rail track in Jerusalem. Immediately after hitting eight pedestrians, security forces nearby shot and killed the driver.
Police said that the driver of a van swerved his vehicle into the light rail station on the corner of Bar-Lev and Shimon Hatzadik Streets. He then continued toward Moshe Zaks Street nearby, where he ran into more people.
After crashing the car, the driver emerged from the vehicle with a metal crowbar and began to attack people nearby. A police and Border Police force subsequently shot and killed the assailant."-more
"Hamas in the United States – doing business as CAIR – has again targeted Americans by publishing a list of “Islamophobes” and promoting it within the Islamic community and beyond."
UTT Founder John Guandolo is on this list.
This is a public call for the people on the list to be killed for the crime of “Slander” in Islam.
As UTT has previously reported, Sharia (Islamic Law) defines “Slander” as follows: “Slander (ghiba) means to mention anything concerning a person person he would dislike…’Do not slander one another’ (Koran 49:12)…(Slander) is to mention of your brother that which he would dislike…The Muslim is the brother of the Muslim. He does not betray him, lie to him, or hang back from coming to his aid.” [Umdat al Salik, The Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law, r2.0-2.6)
Slander is a capital crime under Islamic Law.
Many of you may be aware of writers, artists, politicians, and others who have been killed or attempts made on their lives for “Slandering” Islam. Theo van Gogh was killed for making a film. Dutch Parlimentarian Geert Wilders has a permanent security detail to protect him from Muslims for speaking about the threat from jihad in the Netherlands, including his production of the movie “Fitna.”
Here in America, businesses, politicians, pastors, and our leaders have fallen prey to this intimidation from Islam by self-silencing a truthful debate about real threats from within the Islamic community. The threat of being called an “Islamophobe” is a threat of future violence.
The largest international body in the world second only to the UN, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), has officially defined “Islamophobia” as “Slander” under Islamic Law. The OIC is made up of all 57 Islamic states in the world (56 plus Palestine which they consider a state). The OIC is now pushing for deterrent punishments for “Islamophobia” at the international level.
To be officially labeled an “Islamophobe” by the Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas entities, like CAIR, is to be publicly accused of “Slander” under Sharia. CAIR is openly calling the individuals on their “Islamophobia” site “Slanderers of Islam.”"-more
