For technical reasons, I have decided that it is simpler to publish the new Wordpress-based blog to another directory. This archive will remain here, in full, and completely searchable, but the new blog address, which you should bookmark is:

http://www.solomonia.com/wp

I hope that will be the last move in a long while. If someone can help me overcome the technical issues I have with remaining in this directory (/blog) and still keeping the search in tact in my old installation, I'm all ears and will come right back.

Thank you, and believe me, it hurts me more than it hurts you. ;)

[Attention! If you are reading this through a feed reader and it hasn't updated (that is, if this is still the top post you are seeing), that is because you are subscribed to an outdated feed that isn't being updated anymore. You should unsubscribe, visit the Solomonia home page, and re-subscribe! Thank you!]

It's that time. I am going to be leaving behind this install of the Solomonia software and changing blogging platforms. I am not even going to attempt to import all the old posts at the current time. I will be leaving this blog and all the archives in place. Comments will be closed and it will all remain here completely accessible.

When the change occurs you will notice a slightly different look, though not very, since I have spent most of the past week getting the new template to look like the old. While I'm far from done, I've got to pull the trigger some time. You may notice some disruption during the move, so please be patient as we go through the transition.

See you on the other side...

(If, for some strange reason, you have this page bookmarked with the full url: http:www/solomonia.com/blog/index.shtml be sure to knock that /index.shtml off in order to see the new site -- it will have a .php extension.)

The main street of Dolhinov, then in Poland, in 1931 on Polish national day. The 1886 pogrom took place in the area pictured and against Jewish shops on the left behind the onlookers.

Without taking any partisan position, but purely on the issue's historical merits, nothing could have been more appropriate than Sarah Palin's use of the term "blood libel" to describe what happened to her after the Tucson killings. I know because my direct ancestors were the target of a blood libel.

A blood libel is a false accusation that someone else has deliberately caused the shedding of blood, made in order to harm that person or people, advance one's own political and ideological agenda, and stir up hatred for them in a manner that might lead to the shedding of their blood in revenge.

I'll tell the story of an actual blood libel first--recounted by newspapers at the time and interviews with the peasants done later by Russian anthropologists--and then explain the current post-Tucson story.

15 seconds. As I noted in my post yesterday, that's the time Israelis who live within reach of Gaza rockets have to take shelter from the moment the civil defense sirens wail.

However, while touring Kibbutz Nahal Oz, the site of Saturday's mortar attack, we learned that such projectiles (as opposed to rocket fire) aren't detected by Israeli monitoring devices, leaving residents absolutely no warning before impact.

Quick - What rhymes with treason?

Tali Hoe?!! Tali Latowicki's bio describes her as thus:

"Born in 1976, Tali Latowicki, besides being a promising poet, is also a literary critic and pianist. She studied literature and musicology at the Jewish University of Jerusalem, with a specialization at the Ben Gurion University of Beer Sheva, where she also taught Jewish Literature. So far, her poems have only been published on internet sites and in specialized magazines. A few of her critical essays have instead appeared in the Israeli magazine Da qui. She currently works as editor at the collection Saggio critico at the University of Ben Gurion."

News item:

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman lashed out harshly at left-wing organizations and their supporters Monday, in statements that his opponents said added to a mood of incitement prevalent in the country.

Lieberman condemned the NGOs targeted by a proposed parliamentary committee of inquiry as "aiding terror groups" and called right-wing politicians who opposed the establishment of the committee "traitors" to the national camp.

During a televised faction meeting on Monday afternoon at the Knesset, Lieberman said that "it is clear that these are simply terror-aiding organizations, whose entire goal is to weaken the IDF and its determination to protect Israel's citizens." -- Jerusalem Post

In yesterday's Ma'ariv, the  Im Tirtzu organization, which last January created a storm by revealing that a majority of the anti-IDF 'evidence' underlying the Goldstone Report was provided by a few left-wing NGOs funded by the US-based New Israel Fund (see here, here, and here), released a report exposing the connections of these NGOs to a Palestinian 'welfare' organization funded by Arab states:

Al Masry Al Youm, an Egyptian newspaper that has provided detailed coverage of life of the Coptic Christian community in Egypt, offers a horrifying detail about the recent attack that has left one Coptic Christian in Egypt dead and several others wounded. According to the report, the assailant, allegedly ensured that his victims were in fact Christian by looking for green crosses tattooed on their wrists. Al Masry Al Youm reports:

Security sources said the assailant had checked passengers for the green cross traditionally tatooed on the wrists of Coptic Christians in Egypt. After identifying several Copts, the culprit killed one of them and injured five others.

A five-year-old entry at a blog titled "Deep Thoughts" provides some detail about the cross tattoos the assailant allegedly used to target his victims.

It is a sign of pride and defiance given by the Coptic Orthodox Church and worn by its members in a predominantly Islamic county. Apparently, getting caught with this tattoo guarantees the bearer harsher treatment by the government. Coptic Christians have been getting this tattoo for generations ...

Benny Morris: Muslims and Truth - '...Which raises the still more profound question: What are the long-term prospects for peaceful cohabitation on planet Earth between us in the West and these Muslim societies in which truth has absolutely no traction or importance, where the masses will believe--ask any pollster--that the CIA or the Mossad knocked down the Twin Towers on 9\11?'

[By Daniel Greenfield, crossposted from Sultan Knish.]

There is hardly a better way to degrade the entire idea of political speech than by classing everyone who is in any way critical of the government as "anti-government". Such a label creates two camps, the camp of government and the camp of everyone unhappy with government, and defines the latter camp by the actions of a psychotic killer, who was unhappy with government, grammar and higher mathematics, among a seemingly inexhaustible supply of other things. Such a course is not only intellectually dishonest, it is also far more dangerous than slapping a bullseye across a congressman.

constitution blowdarts.jpg
A bullseye on a single politician endangers only that politician, but criminalizing political speech ultimately endangers every politician and the First Amendment. If Jared Loughner took aim and fired at a Republican judge and a Democratic congresswoman, those in the majority party who are trying to use him as an excuse for undermining free speech, are taking aim and firing at the United States Constitution and the freedoms that make democracy possible.

Jackson Diehl: Why Palestinians want to be Israeli citizens - 'One of the givens of the Middle East peace process is that Palestinians are eager to be free of rule by Israel and to live in a state of their own. That's why a new poll of the Arabs of East Jerusalem is striking: It shows that more of those people actually would prefer to be citizens of Israel than of a Palestinian state...'
Alan Dershowitz: Goldstone Needs to Recant In Light of the New Evidence - 'Can Richard Goldstone's tarnished reputation be rehabilitated without him acknowledging that the evidence, including new information, proves he was wrong? There is a politically motivated effort underway to rehabilitate the tarnished reputation of Richard Goldstone. His reputation suffered not only from his association with the discredited Goldstone report regarding the war in Gaza, but also from recent revelations of the ignoble role he played as a hanging and torturing judge, while serving the Apartheid regime in South Africa...'
Yaacov Lozowick: Virtual Tour of the Shepherd Hotel Area - 'The other day a private developer destroyed a large Jerusalem building which has been empty for decades, so as to construct an apartment building on its site. The building, originally built by the infamous Haj Amin al-Husseini in the 1930s, was confiscated during WWII by the British, while Husseini was hobnobbing with his Nazi friends in Berlin, then by the Jordanians when they conquered the area in 1948, then by the Israelis when they conquered it in 1967. It was sold to Irwin Moskowitz in 1985, but only recently did he manage to complete the legal process that would enable him to develop it. Along the way it became known as the Shepherd Hotel...'

I said what I had to say on Sunday.

Krauthammer has the must-read to start the day today: Massacre, followed by libel. It includes the quote of the month: "The origins of Loughner's delusions are clear: mental illness. What are the origins of Krugman's?"

Sarah Palin's video responding to the slanders:

Of course, as is to be expected, there are people for whom nothing is good enough (as though reason matters to most of these same when it comes to Palin), and now her use of the term "blood libel" is the latest excuse for venom. Remember, most of these are people who thought nothing of falsely assigning blame for bloody murder on her, now posing with indignation (h/t to Legal Insurrection for the thought).

For the record, I have seen the term used far too casually and often inappropriately by plenty of people, including many of my pro-Israel Jewish friends. At worst it's a chance for discussion, not yet another reason to bash Sarah Palin. The ADL did what I would expect the ADL to do (and I meant that seriously). It's their turf and I expect them to defend the seriousness of the term. They do so in an appropriately measured way, here. Alan Dershowitz, no Palin fan, defends her on this, here, as does lefty Jonathan Chait, as quoted in William Jacobson's excellent post, here. A snip (Jacobson here):

Thanks to DaTechGuy for the pizza last night at Linguini's in Marlboro. Always a good time when bloggers get together. Also in attendance, Right Wing Gamer, Neoneocon, Libertarian Leanings, and ChicagoBoyz.

If you're a local blogger interested in helping Da TechGuy with his radio show, he's looking for you:

The nitty-gritty is that I'm hoping to have all of these fine bloggers as part of a rotating series of panelists on my second hour starting in February. All of this is in the semi planning stage but right now I'm leaning toward a panel for the first 2 segments of the 2nd hour and a final guest for the end or maybe going with 4 segments with a half hour with the panel, and two short guest segments, maybe an author and an advocate. I'm also thinking a local pol for a regular panelist to promote local readership since most advertisers are local.

I'm very interested in what my listeners have to say so if you have suggestions leave them in comments. Also if you are a New England Blogger interested in being on the panel or talking to me about the future of the show leave a comment and we can arrange to meet.

Head on over if you're interested.

With thanks: Sylvia

It is 50 years to the day that 42 Moroccan Jews and one crewman lost their lives on board the ill-fated Pisces (renamed the Egoz). The Jews were desperately trying to reach the Promised Land by defying a ban on Jewish emigration. Some good did come out of this disaster, however: it paved the way for Morocco to re-open its gates to Jewish emigration in the early Sixties: some 200,000 Moroccan Jews left for Israel. Here's an account of what happened on that fateful day (translated from the French from the Dafina website).

According to Israeli intelligence, at least 100 Lebanese villages have become genuine military bases. All this attests to the feverish preparations that Iran is making, not only in anticipation of a renewed military conflict between Hizbullah and Israel, but also in anticipation of the possibility that Hizbullah will move to subdue the Lebanese government, should it decide to do so.'

Horror? More of a vacation spot. Certainly there is poverty there, as there is the world over, but these images hardly comport with the oft-peddled line that Gaza is an impoverished prison camp. It is not.

As time progresses and the Guardian's latest Jerusalem correspondent finds her feet, I am finding Harriet Sherwood's double standards increasingly both offensive and revealing.

Avigdor Lieberman: Europe's Irresponsible Gaza Policy - 'In the past nine years, Palestinian terrorists in Gaza have launched more than 11,000 rockets and mortars at towns in southern Israel.

I have no doubt that any other country would have employed similar, if not more extreme, measures to fight a threat of this magnitude...'

When one crazed or ideologically obsessed gunman starts shooting in Arizona, people condemn him and start bemoaning the state of their society. How about a place with ten million people like that who are treated as heroes?

America this week is awash in a huge and passionate debate over whether angry political disagreements and harsh criticisms of certain views or groups inspired the attack on an American congresswoman (Jewish and a strong supporter of Israel, by the way). I'm not going to enter into that argument right now but I want to point out the Middle Eastern ramifications of what's going on here.

Michael J. Totten: The Israeli Way of War - '...Can you imagine Hamas or Hezbollah investigating their fighters and punishing them if they harmed Israeli civilians? The very idea is absurd. The whole point of firing missiles at cities and sending suicide bombers into restaurants and onto busses is to murder as many civilians as possible. These aren't just acts of terrorism. They're war crimes. "If we get complaints about the intentional targeting of civilians, we have to investigate," she said. "Our soldiers often take it personally and get angry. They resent being investigated after being ordered to go to war and risking their lives. I understand why they feel that way, but we have to do this. It's not just important because of all the international pressure. It also matters for the health of our society."'
Palestinian Media Watch: "Israeli actions in Jerusalem... a Satanic plot" - PA libel: Israel planning to destroy Al-Aqsa Mosque and build third Temple on its ruins - 'The official PA daily helps spread religious hatred by repeating accusations that Israel is planning to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and build a third Temple on its ruins. The paper reported that the Al-Aqsa Institute for Religious Affairs and Heritage said this week that "all the Israeli actions in Jerusalem and at the Al-Aqsa Mosque are part of a Satanic plot."...'

There's a consensus of opinion in much of the media and world governments that has developed in the last few years: that the settlements should be dismantled, that the 1949 lines are not borders but somehow what is outside of them is 'Palestinian', that the solution to the Israeli-Arab conflict is the establishment of another Arab state exclusively for Palestinian Arabs, and that there is an urgency to 'rectify' the 'unnatural' situation that Israel controls territory beyond the 1949 lines (including the strategic Golan).

[By Barry Rubin, crossposted from The Rubin Report.]

Well, much of the world media may not report it and the anti-Israel crowd won't believe it but the IDF has concluded on the basis of Palestinian hospital documents that the woman who allegedly died of tear gas poisoning in fact was being treated for cancer and died as a result of being overdosed with medicine. In other words, this isn't an Israeli war crime but a potential Palestinian malpractice suit.

That's why the death certificate has no medical diagnosis, there was no autopsy, and the body was quickly buried.

Let's assume that nobody wanted to take the IDF's word for it but conducted a serious investigation and reviewed the evidence. And let's say that it turns out what I've reported here and earlier turns out to be true.

Would a more general lesson be drawn and an end be put to the transmutation within hours of phony Palestinian tales about Israel into page-one news stories around the world? Probably not, but it would be nice to think that.

Martin Solomon adds: Don't expect the truth to interfere with the haters' good times, however.

Fewer still post on the Internet fears about "brain washing," "mind control," and "conscience dreaming"; have a long record of public disruption and aberrant behavior; were expelled from community college; or were summarily rejected for military service. No matter. Almost immediately following Loughner's cowardly murdering of six and wounding of 14 including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, pundits and some public figures rushed to locate his rampage, together with his paranoid rantings about government control, within the larger landscape of right-wing politics -- especially the rhetoric of the Tea Party and Sarah Palin...'

[By Lee Kaplan, of StoptheISM.]

I wrote a few weeks ago about how Bard College President Leon Botstein was permitting a Hamas support group called the International Solidarity Movement to operate on his college campus to train activists to go the Middle East as a human shield support arm for known terrorist groups like Hamas.

Botstein, instead of closing down the campus group, the first one of its kind in the US on a college campus, he decided to defend it as part of the free exchange of ideas. But Bard-ISM engages in lies and deception as part of the ISM playbook, and does more than just propagandize Bard's students. The "campus club" trains activists to assist terrorist murderers such as are found in Hamas. Some of Bard's trainees were involved with the Gaza flotilla boats.

Now further information is emerging about the judgment of Bard's president which could be the harbinger of more ruinous effects on American postsecondary education across the nation.

Benjamin Kerstein: Obama's Irrelevant Bid for Mideast Peace - The status quo hands the president a Mideast defeat. - 'The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is not always a zero-sum game. Sometimes both sides win, and this is one of those times. It must be admitted that this is a somewhat counterintuitive idea, especially since most observers of the peace process seem to think that the breakdown in negotiations between the two parties is an unmitigated disaster for all involved. In fact, it is a disaster only for the Obama administration, and both Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmud Abbas have the right to claim something like a victory. The reason for this is a simple one: It is in the interests of both these leaders to preserve the status quo...'
Robin Shepherd: The Economist magazine sullies reputation for independent thought with high profile anti-Israeli rant - 'Perhaps it has something to do with its craving for an ever wider readership. As it has doubled its audience in little more than a decade (to more than 1.6 million weekly sales), the temptation to fall into line with the default assumptions that that audience could reasonably be expected to hold may have been too great to resist. Or perhaps it is simply that, like so many other institutions associated with the British political intelligentsia, it has surrendered to the politically correct orthodoxies that now run riot through the country's foreign policy establishment...'

[By Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik, from Palestinian Media Watch.]

Dying as a Martyr for Allah - becoming a Shahid - continues to be presented as a positive achievement in Palestinian society. As documented by Palestinian Media Watch, for years the Palestinian Authority has promoted Martyrdom as an ultimate value and goal both to adults and children. Still today, aspiring to become a "Martyr" is considered an honor and praised by society. Often the death and funeral of a "Martyr" is referred to as a wedding and he himself is considered a "groom" who marries the virgins of Paradise.

The Tragedy of Palestinian Democracy - '...When the U.S. endorsed a Palestinian state in 2002, the endorsement was conditional: it depended on the Palestinians first building "a practicing democracy." Nine years later, half the putative state is a terrorist enclave functioning as an Iranian proxy; the other half is a Potemkin democracy unable even to stage elections. The tragedy of Palestinian democracy is that the obstacle to a Palestinian state turned out to be the Palestinians themselves.'

Rocket attacks on Israel have escalated over the weekend, as one IDF soldier was killed and several soldiers and civilians were injured in clashes with Palestinian terrorists.

The al-Quds Brigades, the militant arm of the Islamic Jihad group, took responsibility for the shootings. Hamas is looking the other way, allowing smaller terrorist groups to test how far Israel will go in its response.

Private employees find themselves working longer and being taxed more heavily so that government employees can enjoy outlandish pay and perks.

In the heartland as on the coasts, that challenge is being taken up.'
