    We won’t give up Jerusalem Prosor tells UN

    Nov 05, 2014 7 Comments
    Israel is neither occupier nor settler. Israel is our home and Jerusalem is the eternal capital of our sovereign state. Jewish homes in Jewish homeland never been one of the many threats in M/E. It is time for Palestinians to realise that all children of Abraham - Jews, Christians and Muslims alike - are not doomed to live together in war, but rather destined to live together in peace. I issue this promise from the people of the Promised Land - under our watch, Jerusalem, our eternal capital, will remain a free and open city for all people & for all time. Read more...

    Nov 05, 2014 2 Comments
    In the less than two weeks since the Congress of SA Students (COSAS) placed the head of a pig in what they thought was the kosher fridge of Woolworths in Sea Point (it turned out to be the halaal section), the student organisation have not been able to lay the matter to rest.

    From the purpose-built deck overlooking the Valley of Desolation in the majestic heart of the Karoo, a major initiative was born on October 23. Conceived four years ago, Giant Flag is the brainchild of entrepreneurial maverick Guy Lieberman. It might raise eyebrows with its wild sense of possibility; it might also raise funds, tourism and catches the world’s attention.

    I was walking across the Sandringham Gardens campus to attend a meeting in the finance department when a resident intercepted me. She was unhappy about the location of her parking spot - something about overhanging trees. I took down the details and promised to look into it for her.

    Would Rabin & Mandela agree

    Nov 05, 2014 Go comment!
    In South Africa, the cynical placing of pigs’ heads in kosher shelves in Woolworths by anti-Israel groups makes us wonder what visionary reconciler Nelson Mandela would have said. Turning to Israel, the despair of Jews and Palestinians about ever reaching peace makes one think of Yitzhak Rabin, who believed the two peoples could find a way to live peacefully as neighbours and who was assassinated 19 years ago. People with diverse political agendas claim both as their inspiration.
