Avoid the SHTUSS yet be an informed smart Jew while standing on one leg! Here’s the news being talked about by Jews today…
Today’s Skim of the News for Jews – Be a Smart Aleck!
- The Billionaire trying to Burn the World. The George Soros story just keeps growing… he’s funding the Black Lives Matter movement, paying to influence European elections, paying to sway the U.S. Supreme Court, smearing political activists, providing heavy funding to attack the nation of Israel, and has given over $30 million to the Clintons. The man, both in business and now in his foundation, seems focused on breaking down the current order in Western civilization.
- U.S. fighter jets confront Syrian fighter jets over Syria on Friday. When Syrian warplanes bombed Kurdish fighters around the city of Hasaka on Thursday, their bombs came so close that U.S. commandos feared for their lives. The U.S. special operations troops were there assisting the Syrian-Kurdish People’s Protection Units, or YPG. So the U.S. scrambled F-22 Raptors. On Friday two Syrian jets arrived and encountered the F-22s. Coming within one mile, well within range of the Raptors’ missiles, and the Syrian jets turned around. In other news, the U.S. has special operations commandos in Northern Syria!
- Suicide bombing in Turkey at Kurdish wedding, murdering 30 injuring at least 94 – attack claimed by ISIS. A blast ripped through a Kurdish wedding in the southern Turkish city of Gaziantep Saturday night. The wedding had many Kurdish-Turkish politicians in attendance, leaving motives unclear as Turkey has fought a Kurdish insurgency in the past, and ISIS is fighting Kurdish-Iraqis in Iraq.
- In the U.S., climate change activists lecturing college students to not have children, ever. “Standing before several dozen students in a college classroom, the lecturer tries to convince them not to have children. He’s talking about a “small-family ethic” — to question the assumptions of a society that sees having children as good, throws parties for expecting parents, and in which parents then pressure their kids to “give them grandchildren.” Why question such assumptions? The prospect of climate catastrophe.” Strange thing happens when you pressure your best and brightest not to have children, often called “bad luck” a generation later.
- Senior Islamic University official in Italy calls for genocide, “Final Solution for Zionists”. A senior official at the Islamic University in Lucca, Italy published a series of controversial Facebook posts, blasting the Italian Prime Minister and demanding “a final solution” for Zionists. The official, Rafelo Vilni, condemned Zionism, saying “there needs to be a final solution for Zionists.”\
- Chabad hassidic Jew stabbed by Islamic attacker on the street in France on Friday. A muslim screaming “Allahu Akbar” stabbed the 62 year old Chabad man in the abdomen outside his home in the city's Jewish quarter, in Strasbourg, France, attempting to murder him. Thank G-d, the Chabadnik was able to push away and run away, surviving the encounter. The police immediately stated that the attacker was mentally ill and the attack was not ethnically related.
- Did you know 4 Palestinians were killed on Thursday and 4 police injured…by Palestinian security forces? Not newsworthy in most of the world, no condemnations or protests – armed Palestinian men with automatic weapons have a shootout with police… Israel not involved, who cares, right?
…and that’s the news of interest to Jews today. (our skim is ethnically focused, but we’re thrilled for every reader)
