Skim of the News for Smart Jews–July 25, Tammuz 19

Be informed, be a smart Jew in under 5 minutes.  Here’s the news being talked about by smart Jews today…

yiddish_worldToday’s Skim of the News for Smart Jews

- Intifada in Germany?  2 more mass murder attacks since yesterdays report…          Syrian Muslim refugee kills pregnant woman and injures 2 others with a machete near Stuttgart.  And suicide bombing by Syrian Muslim refugee with 1 dead and 12 injured near Nuremberg.  But Germans should not worry that a series of Muslim refugees are perpetrating mass murder daily, because “Given the current evidence, there is no indication that this was a terrorist attack” and “had tried to kill himself twice in the past and had spent time in a psychiatric clinic”.  Whether copy-cats, sick people, or jihadis, Germany now has it’s own intifada.  We urge the German authorities to agree to all refugee demands to stop the cycle of violence immediately.

- Israel internet infrastructure being upgraded to 300mbit at home, 1gbit in smaller offices, and “unlimited” speed at major office buildings.         “The Israeli telecom provider Bezeq (former the national phone company) is upgrading to “fast copper” for all homes and direct fiber where warranted.”  The tech is on trial in Modiin, Haifa, Rishon Lezion, Sderot, Tel Aviv, Ganei Tikva and Tur'an.  Home internet in Israel ranges from $18 to $40 per month, depending on speed and package.

- Jewish head of U.S. Democratic Party booted after email archive hacked and published, showing the dirty manipulative side of the supposed “fair process”.          Debbie Waserman Schultz was first booted from the Democrat Party Convention speakers, then from her role as party head, as an archive of emails stolen from Democratic Party servers was eagerly reviewed by the public.  The “fair and democratic process” of the U.S. primary system is shown to be subject to major manipulation and control by a small council of party elite.  Supporters of the former Jewish Democrat candidate but anti-Israel Bernie Sanders are incensed at evidence backing their suspicions and are protesting.  Another side of this story is the hacking of the party email servers, and questions whether this was independent hackers or a foreign government manipulating the U.S. election cycle.  Blaming a foreign government sounds good, but has international repercussions and isn’t the kind of thing done publically unless one is ready to cause a diplomatic incident.

- Humor of the day… Worst auto-translate ever seen in Israel, spotted at a community swimming pool:

…and that’s the news of interest to Jews today.
