Some Chicken Soup For the Brain: Haveil Havalim #87

It is our priviledge to host this week's Haveil Havalim blog carnival. There are some really great articles that came out this past week. So, let's get right down to them. If you get a little confused about the different ways the links are posted, it's
because the husband and I shared the posting duties.

Israel and Israeli Politics:
Rick Richman from Jewish Current Issues talks about Netanyahu's visit to New York last week.

Carl in Jerusalem talks about, the Government cracking down on right-wing dissent.
Israel Matzav claims that the Commission of Inquiry being set up is solely for the purpose of shifting blame away from the current government leaders, e.g. Prime Minister Olmert, Peretz, Livni, etc.
He also wonders whether Knesset Member Effie Eitam is the only voice of reason right now.
He also writes about how an Islamic historian from Hebrew University has said that Muslims will never make peace with Israel.

Shiloh Musings wonders why Jerusalem and its numerous terrorist attacks wasn't included in a New York Times article chronicling terrorism in the aftermath of the 5th year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
She also compares an event that happened in her own life to the theory that it's perfectly legitimate to have Prime Minister Olmert be the one to appoint a judge in the Commission of Inquiry against... himself.
Shilo also finds herself disagreeing with a Dry Bones cartoon and tells us why.

Jameel points to the media bias and stereotyping being committed against "settlers" in the trial and conviction of one such man that killed a number of Arabs in an attempt to stop last year's Disengagement.

Simply Jews has a simple message for Olmert.

It is an issue that has gotten little major press coverage. The Knesset is trying to stall the planned mass immigration of Ethiopia's Falush Mura, claiming budget issues as the reason for the delay. Reading the article, you will see that there is much more to it than that. As Islamists are attempting to take over all of Ethopia, with the ultimatum of "convert or die", the Jews there need our help now more than ever!

"Regular" Politics:
Mordechai describes what it's like to watch the death of a Jewish Democrat.

Treppenwitz explores the history of the "fifth column", and asks what should be done about it.

The US State Department is a funny creature. Made up of career politicians devoid of real accountability and responsibility to the rest of the Government and its policies. To really understand the unadulterated power that the State Department has, read "The Abandonment of the Jews", and "While Six Million Died". NOTHING has changed over the past 6-7 decades. Very well hidden secret. In any case, our "infamous" Soccer Dad wants to know what's in the water at the State Department. Go find out!

Wars And Peaces:
Israel Matzav explains why it doesn't matter that Amnesty International has condemned Hezbollah.

Yourish tells us that while the Holocaust Cartoon Contest has stirred up a lot of controversy around the Western World, it hasn't really garnered much attention or attraction within Iran.

If you haven't read about the new Saudi Arabian law banning dogs, you need to head over to Simply Jews to get an indepth look at the new "law".

Mere Rhetoricon how The Saudi Peace Iniative is actually A Discrete Way to Destroy Israel.

Perspectives of a nomad about Amnesty International admits that Hezbollah Guilty of War Crimes

Secular Blasphemy is not coninced that the Syrian security forces really foiled attack on US embassy

Daled Amos looks into the Pope's speech to see whether he is on a crusade against Islam. If not, what's all the fuss about?

As the EU is preparing to accept the Hamas terrorist government because it is planning on a coalition government with Fatah, the "moderate" group, I make some dire predictions on what the consequences of such an action are.

Palestinians:
Carl in Jerusalem - Pali kid killed after finding dads weapon - an exposive belt

Samson Blinded about - The smart Palestinians

JOSHUAPUNDIT about how the ISM is now actively acting as terrorists instead of just helping them

abbagav about why Haniyeh is an Idiot

This is a must SEE video! An Australian peace activist that travelled to the Palestinian Authority describes how she came to realize that the Palestinians are sacrificing their children's for media attention, and that she had been duped by them from the beginning. Translation included.

MSM:
Israelly cool about how the Guardian tells the Truth Lie

Carl in Jerusalem - New york times can't find Israel on the terror map.

Israel Matzav writes about how in an unprecedented move, France 2 is suing Philippe Karsenty, who runs a media watch-dog site. They are suing him for claiming that the footage of the now infamous Al-Dura shooting was staged. For those not in the know, Al-Dura was a 12 year old boy that was shot dead at the start of the Al-Aksa Intifada. The IDF was blamed for the killing, and the child became the poster boy for the Intifada and Palestinian suffering. Evidence is now showing that it was the Palestinian gun-men on the scene that were responsible for death.

Also writing about the Al-Dura trial, Atlast Shrugs discusses and how she sees it as The Dreyfus Affair Redux, or, plainly put, "deja-vu all over again".

Media Backspin - on the media reactions to the Al-durah trial.

Charles Johnson over at Little Green Footballs has proof that Muslims are being encouraged to invest more money in Western media outlets in order to gain and spread more influence.

In commemoration of the 5th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, Dave Bender revisits the reactions, from 9/11/2001, to the attacks from the residents of Jerusalem Old City.

Mediacrity about New york times putting Terrorists and Victims in the same place.

Hey guys, thanks for the comments. The reason we missed a few were lags from emails. For some reason, the husband didn't get some of the submissions I sent him until this morning. So, I'm sorry if I missed some. I would encourage you to send those I may have missed into the next carnival. Thanks all!! It was a pleasure reading what you had to write. Really amazing stuff!
