From an old Al Jolson radio program, late 1930s-early 1940s, comedic banter between Jolson and comedian "Parkyakarkus" (Harry Einstein aka Harry Parks) Jolson: "You know what they say Parky, a fool and his money are soon parted." Parkyakarkus: "Except for Jack Benny - he's naturally tight!" *LOL*
From the article title I assumed that "very tight" referred to their money. I guess I am starting to date myself ....

While I am not Jewish, nor is my family, I have always had shared "fellow feelings" with my Jewish brethren because, like so many if them, we too had close family members shot by the SS at the edge of a mass grave during the many reprisal massacres of civilians that the Germans practiced as an integral part of their war strategy in the East. My family lived through 4 years of Nazi occupation and lost everything (some their lives), my father fought them behind enemy lines for 3 years, and my mother still to this day remembers the sight of the hapless, exhausted, haunted Romanian Jews being marched West to their deaths in 1944 as the Red Army drove the Nazis back towards Germany ... The combined emotions of dismay and total, complete outrage (not to mention powerlessness) that I feel when looking at what West has returned to are hard to express. I served my adopted country in uniform as a way to repay her for the freedoms and opportunities she gave me, and rejoiced at the fall of communism. Now, I can foresee a day when some future RE-gressive president of the US will build on the foundations left by this one and impose sanctions on Israel for daring to defend itself from the mideaval Nazis that hunger for its destruction. If I was younger I would go to Israel to help her fight for her life. May God help her and protect her and her people. From her "friends" as well as her enemies....

Europe lost so many anti-semites during WW2, it seems, that sometime in the past few decades it decided to import new ones from the Middle East. Proving that anti-semitism in the West is alive and well. And is being actively practiced by the leftist elites and their Mohammedan "shock troops". 80 years later, and things are once again looking familiar in the streets. "Kristalnacht II" anyone?

Dear Prof Hanson: May I humbly suggest you consider using the more common words "bold" and "boldness" instead of "audacity" and "audacious" in the future. While the latter are perfectly fine from a linguistic aspect, they have in recent years become too associated with a certain point of view due to the unfortunate tile of a certain ghost written bio-hagiography of a few years back. While I understand that you (unlike many other authors and 'reporters') are not using the words "audacity" or "audacious" to curry favor with anyone, the word frankly makes me wretch every time I see it due to its unfortunate recent associations. And I am sure that you do not intend to elicit that reaction in your readers.

The Jewish State in a Morally Sick World

Every single one of the people/entities that (rabidly, it seems) favor the terror state seeking to liquidate Israel over the state of Israel itself is anti-semitic. Its same old 'Protocols of the Elders of Zion', 'Mein Kampf', 'Blood Libel' outrages redux, under new names. But its the same old anti-semitism at its core. There is NO "other explanation", much less a REASONABLE "other explanation" for this craven behavior of the West towards Israel. Anti-Semitism. Anyone looking any deeper into this issue is navel-gazing. May God help the people of Israel with "friends like these"..... if the government of the United States remains in the hands of the anti-semitic, anti-western, cultural-Marxist (RE)-gressives for a few more election cycles, we will all live to see the day when sanctions are imposed on Israel while being lifted on Iran. A horrifying thought, but not beyond the realm of possibility. It is insane that one of the considerations that the government of Israel now has to seriously worry about is a backlash from the US government if it dares to, say, defend its people "too robustly".... while its blood-thirsty mediaeval opponents continue their campaign of terror with nothing but a few words of warning from the West as "consequences".
Why is anyone surprised that a racist anti-semite is silent about the fate of a white Jew?

British Slang term popularized in the US by the Monty Python comedy series in the 1970s ... "Git is mild[1] profanity with origins in British English for a silly, incompetent, stupid, annoying, senile elderly or childish person."

I disagree with you. As NormRX pointed out towards the beginning of the comments on this article: "some men are irresponsible, but so are many women. Let's see some negative articles about women on Mother's day" Somehow I doubt we will live to see the day ... hence he wouldn't agree ... but probably try to bob, weave, and qualify his statements like a good liberal ...
