    Unity - It's surreal and frightening

    Sep 10, 2014 2 Comments
    In another of his fascinating DELVING DEEPER thoughts, Rabbi Shmuel Bloch gives us a different take on religious and secular events around us. “Take a glance at the news from Israel this week,” he writes, “It's the usual stories. Reports of feriebels (in-fighting), factionalism and bickering top the headlines. Yet, just a few weeks ago Israel was at war and a totally different spirit and outlook pervaded the country.”

    Final nail in the coffin of Multiculturalism

    Sep 10, 2014 6 Comments
    ROTHERHAM – “Men of Pakistani heritage treated white girls like toilet paper. They picked children up from schools and care homes and trafficked them across northern cities for other men to join in the fun. They doused a 15-year-old in petrol and threatened to set her alight should she dare to report them. They menaced entire families and made young girls watch as they raped other children. These truly horrible things happened in our country – not in the distant, cruel past, but as recently as last year.”

    Rhodes is hotbed of anti-Israel activity

    Sep 10, 2014 5 Comments
    SAUJS, Jewish & Christian Zionist students & staff at Rhodes express concern over deteriorating situation at Rhodes where anti-Israeli resolution was rejected by the Senate last week. “Jewish students keep their heads down & don’t advertise their religious affiliation,” said SAUJS’ national chairman Ariela Carno this week. During Operation Protective Edge the campus once again became ground-zero for anti-Israeli activities. So much so, that who have spoken to SAJR have asked not to be named for fear of reprisals.
