In last Friday’s Globe & Mail, Gerald Caplan authored an op-ed that was so hysterically anti-American and anti-Israel that I actually found it shocking that any mainstream newspaper had agreed to publish it. In a nutshell, Caplan argued that the campaign to pressure Iran to stop its nuclear programs is the stuff of “lunatics,” that Israel is as much a threat to world peace as Iran, that Iran’s nukes would be of no more concern to us than Israel’s or France’s, and that Canada’s leaders are mindless foreign-policy automatons who will do anything that their Zionist masters in Tel Aviv tell them to do.
Yet it was almost worth enduring Caplan’s college-newspaper claptrap to see John Baird’s fantastic rebuttal in today’s Globe. Baird emphasizes that some of Caplan’s despised “lunatics” include Liberal MP Irwin Cotler, Paul Martin, Nobel laureate Shimon Peres, and U.S. President Barack Obama. Oh, and…

I started this blog exactly a year ago and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed myself. My “mission”, my agenda, was to help publicize anti-Israel and anti-Semitic content on the internet and to counter it as much as possible, and I hope I have succeeded in some small manner in lending my little voice to the battle. Unfortunately this seems to be an unending war and we won’t be short of subject matter in the foreseeable future.
I also wanted to write funny or interesting stories about my family and life in Israel. In this I have been less prolific than I wished, but I hope to remedy that in the coming year.
I have written 305 posts and my blog’s page views have climbed from the single digits daily to around 150-200 per day, and it is now very close to 45,000 page views in total.
If I have had any success…

In his answers to prosecutors, defense attorneys and a judge, the captain of the ill-fated cruise ship Costa Concordia admitted he made a “mistake” in colliding with rocks off the Italian island of Giglio.
However, in statements made during a phone conversation with a friend earlier this month, Capt. Francesco Schettino said he was pressured by managers to steer the ship to the area where the collision occurred, two Italian newspapers reported Wednesday.
Both Costa Cruises and authorities have criticized Schettino’s behavior. He is under house arrest and faces possible charges of manslaughter, shipwreck and abandoning ship in the January 13 incident, when the vessel struck rocks and rolled over onto its side in the waters off the island.
A 16th body was found on the ship Tuesday. Sixteen others are still missing from the roughly 4,200 people aboard the cruise liner — 3,200 passengers and 1,000 crew members —…

In a joint IDF-ISA activity, IDF soldiers arrested the suspects responsible for carrying out the gunfire attack that occurred on Saturday, December 24, 2011, directed at an Israeli vehicle heading towards Ma’ale Shomeron, near Azzun. The trial of the suspects is currently ongoing in the military court of Samaria.
During their investigation, both admitted their responsibility for the shooting as well as involvement in other terror activity in the area of Azzun, involving other militants from the village, who were also arrested and taken for questioning.
In the past few weeks, 17 residents of Azzun were arrested on suspicion of involvement in terror activity. During the investigation, the rifle used to carry out the attack was uncovered, among a pipe bomb and three additional rifles.
The suspects confessed executing additional shooting attacks in the beginning of December 2011, including shooting at security forces. They were also involved in a number…
