Colors: Cyan Color

As you were warned for months and months, the final nail in the coffin between the Democratic Party and the State of Israel has finally been hammered in by Joe Biden. After six months of war that was started by Hamas when they viciously attacked Israeli civilians, Biden is now siding with Hamas to placate his radical, Jew-hating base.  Biden is caving in the worst possible way, telling terrorists around the world that hiding behind civilians provides immunity from retribution for their atrocities.

YU in Israel combines the rich Yeshiva University beis medrash environment and advanced Torah studies taught by Roshei Yeshiva, with a specially designed academic curriculum between YU and Tel Aviv University (TAU) or Bar-Ilan University (BIU).

The world’s democracies think they cannot defend themselves;
Israel is proving them wrong.

(April 9, 2024 / JNS) Six months after Oct. 7, no one is the same. The Israel-Hamas war has made everyone participating in it, both soldiers and witnesses, more aware of the preciousness of life. They are determined not to allow it to be taken. They are saddened by the vicious hatred of Israel’s enemies and those enemies’ willingness to commit horrendous atrocities. They are determined to fight those enemies more intensely than ever.

By sheer force of will, the tragic murder of NYPD Officer Jonathan Diller has been brought into the national spotlight.  This is not because the death of an officer in the line of duty is anything that the media wants to talk about - especially in New York - but rather because former President Donald Trump attended the wake.

Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman has been making national headlines lately.  In 2024, being a normal Executive in a deep-blue state like New York apparently garners a lot of attention.  He drove Democrats crazy when he decided to protect women’s sports and locker rooms by banning men from participating in women’s activities.  Now he’s being called a Nazi because he wants to prepare for emergencies that may come up in the future. 

In mathematics, two lines are orthogonal if they intersect at right angles.  More generally, two concepts or situations are orthogonal if they do not substantially overlap.  In Israel today, many worlds seem to be orthogonal, either existing separately from each other or having cross purposes.  This is true of the relationship between much of the media and the government, the attempt of Israelis to maintain normality in daily life, and the view of Israelis and most of the World about the hostages and Hamas.
