Sixteen Jewish state legislators call the curriculum inaccurate, misleading and reflecting an anti-Jewish bias while parents fear youngsters will be educated to view Israel and Zionism as evil
Jewish and Israeli parents in California are concerned about a new program proposed by the state education board for high schools in the upcoming school year which they say presents the Boycott Divestment Sanctions movement and other anti-Israeli content in a positive light.
Imagine striding up the same
stone path on which millions of people walked to arrive at the Holy Temple in
Jerusalem during Biblical times. It is known as the “Pilgrimage Road.”
That fantasy is about to be reality as Israel prepares to open to the public an excavation project that has taken nearly a decade to complete. This new archaeological attraction will permit visitors to literally see the ashes of the Jewish people’s Holy Temple, which was burned to the ground by Roman invaders in A.D. 70. Get an early glance at this amazing discovery when you watch this clip.
“Summer begins with a hike in tourist arrivals to Israel,” said Tourism Minister Yariv Levin.
Nearly 2.6 million tourist entries into Israel have been recorded since the start of the year, representing a 9.8% increase compared to the same period last year, according to new data published Monday by the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS).
Building on two consecutive record-breaking years of incoming tourism, 2.587 million tourists entered Israel between January and July 2019, compared to 2.356 million during the same period in 2018.
JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israel’s upcoming elections in September — just five months after the last ones in April — are essentially a do-over.
In the April election, the right wing won a majority. But because Israel has a parliamentary system, a bunch of small right-wing parties had to agree to join a governing coalition. They were too divided to do that, so now Israel is trying again.
“On behalf of all government ministers and all citizens of Israel, I send condolences to the bereaved families, best wishes for recovery to the injured, and solidarity with the American people,” said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Back in January I wrote an article calling for Dr. Lara Kollab’s medical license to be revoked. It’s good that the State Medical Board of Ohio is planning “to impose disciplinary action on her – ranging from limiting her license to permanent suspension as well as the potential for fines.”
There should be no question that she should get a permanent suspension, and her medical license revoked. She joked about giving her Jewish patients the wrong medicine. What if she has a patient whose political views she dislikes? Does the Ohio medical board think that she will drop her Islamic Jew-hatred after a temporary suspension?
