by Moshe Burt

Don’t Bet on Peres Helping Pollard

Commentary;

The well-meaning opinion writer below is engaging in wishful thinking and grabbing at straws — undoubtedly NOT something that the Freedom for Jonathan Pollard movement wants to be involved or associated with.

The writer himself revisits history in noting that Peres was [unelected] prime minister at the time of Pollard’s capture and encarceration.

Peres has a documented record of not letting the truth; his failures, i.e. his relationship with Arafat, his manipulation of Oslo upon the Jewish people, and the resultant abandonment of sizeable parts of Jewish land to the Arabs. He has never once admitted or been contrite for the error, the total folly of his ways, despite all of the loss of Jewish lives and the injuring and maiming of countless numbers of Jews.  [...]  Click here to read more.

Gay Bash a Bust, But Watch for Precedent

Today’s gay march in Jerusalem was, B’H a bust. While litigants from both sides spent most of Wednesday and Thursday wrapped in Supreme Court petition arguments, there were many more police and many more religious counter-demonstrators than there were fruity marchers. And the Big Deal; it came down to a march of a several hundred yards. One of Ryan Howard’s well-struck blasts travels further than the length of the parade.

Haaretz reported on the parade route; [...]  Click here to read more.
