Israel will be much safer for Jews in the long-run. Demographics are rapidly changing here in the United States. Time will tell what that means. I am not sanguine about it.

And the United States. I am reading (there was a review on this site a few days back), "The Nazis Next Door: How America Became a Safe Haven for Hitler's Men" by Eric Lichtblau.

“The idea that we saw a black president in our lifetime is wonderful,” said New York City’s former mayor, Ed Koch. “It conveyed to us that this country has come such a long way. But I never fully accepted that Obama didn’t hear his minister [Jeremiah Wright] make those awful anti-Semitic statements over twenty years. I wanted to believe him. I willed myself to believe him.... What he has done is break that trust. Like Humpty Dumpty, once you break it, you can’t put it together again.”

Jacob, do you know what President Obama did that broke the mayor's trust?

Right-wing has come to be used as a pejorative meaning we are on the fringe or the extreme of a political movement. I prefer "conservative."

No one wants to believe these citadels of liberalism / progressivism are bastions of anti-Semitism. Better to imagine they do not know what an ISIS flag looks like. But they sure know what an Israeli ("Jew") flag looks like.

'Following this morning's murder of 4 Jewish worshippers in a Jerusalem synagogue, Palestinian Authority Chairman Abbas' advisor Sultan Abu Al-Einein immediately praised the attack as a "heroic operation" on his Facebook page. He posted graphic images showing pools of blood and dead Jews in prayer shawls, as well as a photo of the dead terrorists with a bloody butcher's knife on the ground next to them. Al-Einein referred to them as "Martyrs."
Following murderous terrorist attacks and riots
in Jerusalem in October,
Abbas' advisor assured Palestinians
that Abbas and PA leaders support it:

"We kiss every forehead,
every hand and even every foot
that carries out Ribat (religious conflict/war
over land claimed to be Islamic)
at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and in Jerusalem...
We are behind them.The leadership is with them...
President [Abbas] greeted them, reinforced them
and requested more Ribat from them"

There looks to be a caveat (an admonition to both Israel and the Palestinians) in the following statement:

Editor wrote: "There can be no caveats, no excuses. This brazen slaughter of men at prayer serves no legitimate political purpose other than to dangerously escalate tensions between two people who clearly have not tried hard enough to figure out how to live together in some semblance of peace and respect."

'Clearly both peoples have not tried hard enough to figure out how to live together'. My view? Israel has tried too hard trying to figure out how to live together in some semblance of peace and respect. I am a realist. I live (as it is said) in "Realville," not in Wishful-Thinkingville

It could happen. Palestinians can be offered generous inducements to emigrate to any number of surrounding Arab states. "If there is the will, there is a way."

Barack Obama said today: "Tragically this is not the first loss of life that we have seen in recent months. Too many Israelis have died, too many Palestinians have died...."

President Obama should be "diplomatically" condemned by Israel's prime minister for this obscene moral equivalence between murderous Islamic terrorism / savagery against innocents and Israel's right to self-defense.
