The outcome of the war now under way between the Israelis and Palestinians is vital to the security of every American, and indeed, I believe, to all of civilization. Why?

Have you heard about the Afghan Jihad schoolbook scandal?

Or perhaps I should say, "Have you heard about the Afghan Jihad schoolbook scandal that's waiting to happen?"

Because it has been almost unreported in the Western media that the US government shipped - and continues to ship - millions of Islamist (that's short for Islamic fundamentalist) textbooks into Afghanistan.

Nationhood and Jerusalem

Israel became a nation in 1312 B.C.E., two thousand years before the rise of Islam.
Arab refugees in Israel began identifying themselves as part of a Palestinian people in 1967, two decades after the establishment of the modern State of Israel.

Since the Jewish conquest in 1272 B.C.E. the Jews have had dominion over the land for one thousand years with a continuous presence in the land for the past 3,300 years.

How the Palestinians kill their own

With all the pictures AP sends out throughout the world showing the events of The Oslo War, you might see something besides the "plight of the poor Palestinians" ... and then again, maybe you wouldn't.

RAVIV'S TRIAL IS ON APRIL 7 WHAT WILL SOON BE THE REAL ISSUE IN ISRAEL

by Barry Chamish (Israeli Journalist)

Well there goes the myth that this conflict can't be settled militarily. It IS being settled militarily. Yes, I know, this isn't the time to be sending out a Rabin-related message. I also know how proud my readers are of the Israel Defense Forces and would prefer to hear about the media crucifixion of Israel, not Rabin.

(CNSNews.com) - Eighteen months after a 12-year-old boy cowering alongside his father against a Gaza wall became a symbol of the Palestinian uprising, a German television documentary has once again questioned the conventional wisdom that Mohammed al-Dura was shot by an Israeli rather than Palestinian bullet.

REALITY CREATION FOR THE IGNORANT

by Barry Chamish

On September 30, 2000, a twelve year old Gazan boy named Muhammed ad-Dura was shot while huddled against a wall with his father, trapped in a firefight between the PLO and the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). The shooting was filmed by French TV and the PLO exploited the incident to fuel a bloody terror war against Israel, turning the boy into an international martyr through the foreign media.
