In one-off alternative to Birthright, J Street lets students focus on occupation

WASHINGTON — Over the last two decades, Birthright trips to Israel have become a rite of passage for more than 700,000 young American Jews. The free 10-day trip, founded in 1999, takes participants throughout the country — from the stone streets of Jerusalem and the beaches of Tel Aviv, to the ancient plateaus of Masada […]

Israeli settlements are a regular destination on Birthright trips

For years, Birthright has been taking participants into the occupied territories, usually without their knowledge or consent. ‘At the end of the day, we Israelis always have been less than truthful about where those lines and boundaries are for tourists,’ one former tour operator says.

‘NYT’ publishes long article about Jews protesting ‘Birthright’ over its ‘lies’ about Palestine

The New York Times published a splendid article today about young Jews walking off the free ten-day Birthright trips to Israel, rejecting them as propaganda. It is already attracting pushback from Israel supporters. The long article, headlined, “Birthright Trips, a Rite of Passage for Many Jews, Are Now a Target of Protests,” is just about […]

A teacher’s look at Birthright’s study abroad course description

It would be a lie to say I wasn’t deeply moved when the 947 bus pulled into Jerusalem as dusk descended on the golden city on Christmas Day.  Who wouldn’t be stirred by the dramatic ascent into a town bathed in limestone. It’s always been this way for me. And though I’m no longer a […]

Birthright Forsaken: Trump Tells “Weasel Lad” Ryan to Shut His Stupid Lying Face

Andrew Anglin Daily Stormer November 1, 2018 Paul “Weasel Lad” Ryan once again came out to denounce Trump and defend invasive animals. Trump hit back on Wednesday.

(Natural News) In what will likely prove to be the biggest constitutional challenge in our lifetimes, POTUS Donald Trump is preparing to issue an executive order ending so-called “birthright citizenship,” which the Democratic Left has exploited for decades in its relentless effort to encourage more illegal immigration and more voters. According to […]

The loving rituals of liberal Zionism (and the Birthright breakup)

In 1986, at age 16, standing near Ben Yehuda’s pedestrian mall, I swayed to Naomi Shemer’s famous 1967 song, “Jerusalem of Gold” (Yerushalayim Shel Zahav) with other young Zionists in Jerusalem on an eight-week high school program. The song was being played on a boombox, and I sang along with other American Jews who had, […]

American Jews Ditch Israeli Birthright Trip to Join Anti-Occupation Hebron Tour

HEBRON, OCCUPIED PALESTINE — Five American Jews, who were visiting Israel as part of the Birthright Israel program, ditched the trip yesterday in protest. Instead of continuing on with the trip’s planned itinerary, on the eighth day of their trip the five Americans joined Breaking the Silence, an anti-occupation army veteran’s group, on a tour […]

Birthright walkout is met with vitriolic rage in Israel — ‘Radicals’ ‘You will get raped’

The former congressman Brian Baird once said that when you criticize Israel even privately to Israeli officials, they flip out on you, even if you’re a congressman; and this is the most important takeaway of the wonderful Birthright walkout that happened yesterday and that is now all over the Jewish press. A group of five young […]

Time to End Birthright Citizenship

Donald Trump took a lot of heat when he announced his candidacy for President, stating that he would build a border fence from San Diego to Brownsville and make Mexico pay for it, all to keep Mexico’s “unwanted” and “undesirables” from flooding the United States. In August 2015, on the campaign trail, he shed light […]

Sorry American Jews, you don’t have a birthright

A colloquial expression in Hebrew is “tzeh li me’havrid” – “get out of my veins”: you are too pushy, too close, you’re brutally invading my space. It’s an aggressive expression, and aggression is not my intention, so I’ll go with “American Jews, kindly get out of my veins.” As a left-wing Israeli, the last thing […]

Start ‘Birthright’ earlier and hire conservative professors– to stem ‘national security issue’ of Jewish kids abandoning Israel

Earlier today I posted news accounts of “devastating” new data on young Americans’ feelings about Israel, as compiled by Fern Oppenheim of the Brand Israel Group. I’ve now watched Oppenheim’s speech to the Herzliya conference, which was published yesterday. Her message was that the portion of Jewish college students who don’t like Israel is higher […]

Chabon calls occupation ‘the most grievous injustice I have ever seen in my life’ and says he is ‘culpable’

A lot of people are passing this interview around today, and they should be. It will bring tears to your eyes: the US novelist Michael Chabon speaking sincerely and eloquently about the horrors of the occupation, which he has just toured with Breaking the Silence. Chabon is preparing a book of essays by novelists about […]

The end of apartheid in Israel will not destroy the country, it can only improve it

I have been looking for years, and I cannot, for the life of me, locate the Republic of South Africa on any map of the world.  The name should be a very helpful indicator: Africa is a very large continent, South Africa, then, must be at the southern tip.  Yet I keep looking, and South […]

President Donald Trump faces his greatest nemesis — Mexican Muslims

After winning the election by a landslide, President Donald J Trump has followed through with his vision to make America great again by tackling its two biggest threats: Mexicans and Muslims.  His first order of business will be keeping out Mexicans by building a wall around the U.S.-Mexico border. The wall is intended to block […]
