Uncensored Israel News, Jewish news, National Israeli news

Hebrew UniversityThe not-unexpected poll results were published at the Knesset hearing. Almost all Jewish women from the Hebrew University reported having been verbally or physically assaulted by Arabs near the campus.

Israeli police and media, so concerned about trivial acts of sexual harassment by rabbis and officials, ignore this problem.

The Education Minister confirmed that the government will provide free kindergartens from the age of 3 to most of the population this year.

Even in Scandinavia, childcare is not free, although it is subsidized. In order to gloss over the obvious socialist overtones of free kindergartens, the children’s attendance is touted as education. But even primary schools provide very poor education. To imagine that kindergartens would provide anything that could be described as education is a delusion.

A few months ago we argued against the reports that Assad might launch regional war if Syria were attacked by Turkey. We believe that analysis was correct, because at that time Assad was rational. By now, he is probably not.

Thus his reported threat to annihilate Tel Aviv if the UNSC condemns his regime to Gadhafi’s fate must be taken seriously. Israel cannot intercept the 1,600 medium-range missiles that Syria has at its disposal. We could destroy some of them, but hundreds will remain for a massive strike. Recall that Syrian SCUDs have chemical and biological warheads.

At this point, Assad does not fear whatever retaliation Israel would inflict on Damascus, because the UNSC resolution means that he is likely on his way out, anyway.

We gain nothing by replacing the hostile but sensible Assad with the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria.
