[1/19/2011:  In the interest of fairness and accuracy, please consider the New Israel Fund’s response to this article.  It is the first comment appearing below the article.  — Editor]

The USA-Egypt-Israel Arms Embargo of Gaza is Now a Music Video!

The USA-Egypt-Israel agreement regarding the weapons embargo of Gaza specifies a fifty-mile limit on naval inspections.  Israel’s recent enforcement of the weapons embargo is being portrayed as human rights abuse by The Usual Suspects, who pretend that this is an aid embargo or a travel embargo.

More Evil From Uncle Google

evil google Uncle Google, that paragon of hypocrisy, has done it again.  When videos of Jewish interest get posted on YouTube, antisemitic diatribes follow in the comments, often in the form of Israel-bashing, often filled with obscenities and half-baked misunderstandings. Uncle Google doesn’t mind this.  Neither does it mind posts of deceptive Israel-bashing videos. But truthful and effective pro-Israel videos are censored for “terms of service” violations.  The latest victim is video # wU221GA5-u8 Read the rest of this entry »

Israeli Rescue Workers in Haiti

In case you’ve just emerged from a month in a cave, here’s what’s new:  Haiti has suffered the worst earthquake to hit the Western Hemisphere in two hundred years.  When the bodies are all accounted for, there might be 100,000 dead.

Here’s what’s not new:

The UK (population: 61 million) sent sixty-four firemen and eight volunteers.
China (population: 1,326 million) sent fifty rescuers and seven journalists.
The twenty-five nations of the Arab League (population: 340 million) sent nothing.
