Either you are confused of the date or they ran your article early, but it's not the 25th of Kislev so Chanukah has not started yet. It doesn't start until the night of the 16th of December this year.
Oh but we can cut ourselves off from Israel when a rocket launched by Hamas lands 3 miles away from Tel Aviv-Ben Gurion Airport. Hmmm, I wonder why. Doesn't have anything to do with Obama's hatred of Israel does it? If Ebola were in Israel or Sweden or some other European nation, how quickly you think he would shut down flights from those countries?
I have had the app on my phone since the days when it was only available in Hebrew. Since then, several of my friends have downloaded the English version. And it is nerve-racking every time you hear the alert go off. I encourage anyone who has any doubts to download the app and then think about what you would do if instead of the city saying Tel-Aviv, it said New York City, instead of Ashdod, it said St. Louis, Atlanta instead of Be'er Sheva, Houston instead of Askelon, Phoenix instead of Sderot, Indianapolis instead of Haifa, Washington DC instead of Jerusalem (well some of us might not complain about that). But if those were the city names, think about what kind of response you would demand from you government.
Using your logic, explain why the massacre happened at, Virginia Tech, Columbine, Sandy Hook, the movie theater shooting, Ft. Hood? All gun free zones. All zones where a good guy could not and did not have a gun. Further, explain how a good guy with a gun was able to stop a purse snatching in Texas without firing a single shot. Or the church shooting that was cut short by the good guy with a gun. Or the Oregan Mall shooting in which only 2 people were killed before a good guy showed up with a gun and ended what could have been a massacre. What you liberals don't understand is the most effective use of a firearm in the hands of law abiding citizens is through deterence. The mere fact that the criminal may face armed opposition is enough to prevent most criminals from acting in the first place which further explains why most mass shootings occur in gun free zones.
Guillotines are pretty quick and effective. Though a rope is cheap and reusable and of course with the rising cost of lead these days....
That he was going to fundamentally transform America.
I consider myself a fairly conservative Jew, and this angers me. The cadet leader's use of the bible verse on a white board does not interfere with my free exercise of my religion. The cadet leader is not trying to convert anyone, he is not denigrating the religion of any one else. I am so tired of the PC police cracking down on Christians saying that other religions were offended, because then I get lumped into the other religions category when it doesn't offend me. Now you erase a verse from the Koran that a Muslim cadet writes on their whiteboard and try to tell me that CAIR and the Nation of Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood, and 0bama wouldn't be up in arms.
I have a friend who is politically, almost exactly like me, as far as issue by issue views. The biggest difference is when she has to vote the lesser of two evils, she votes Democrat, I vote Republican. The issues she disagrees with the Republicans on are the social issues. For her that's a big deal. She likes me just wants a smaller government that will not continue to try and run our lives. If the Republicans would adopt a policy that social issues are state issues, they would be able to capture a major larger share of the youth vote in Congressional and US Senate races.
Less an issue of his birth place and more a question about how he classified himself. Was he classified as a foreign student during college?
I'm Jewish and I will tell you that it's a freaking Christmas Tree.
