    Did SA set alleged Israeli Mobster free on bail

    Jan 27, 2016 Go comment!
    This week Israel’s Channel 10 News reported that suspected Israeli mob boss Shai Musli, who was scheduled to appear in court on January 18 and didn’t, was released on $10,000 bail. The TV channel merely quoted “sources” and SAPS spokesmen have not responded to Jewish Report Online’s enquiries - but it appears that there was, indeed, no hearing on the scheduled date. Channel 10 said that a gang member had agreed to turn state witness in Israel on the alleged charges of “assassinations, illegal possession of weapons, racketeering, arson and robbery”.

    The Shoah's first historian is finally heard

    Jan 25, 2016 Go comment!
    January 27 marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. Today the name is ubiquitous, but, in 1946 few beyond those who had survived to tell the tale, had heard of it. But David Boder, an unassuming Latvian Jew who’d emigrated to the US and as a pioneer of psychology in the 1920s, spent that year, and the rest of his life, documenting the Shoah – even though his own name has got lost in the process!

    Israeli food a hit among world cuisine

    Jan 25, 2016 Go comment!
    A major culinary revolution has taken place in the past three decades and a new documentary by a young, inspiring Israeli-born American chef, Michael Solomonov is taking travel foodies by storm (SEE TRAILER). Solomonov (or Solo, as he's known), travels all over Israel, eating and talking about how ethnic traditions from across the Diaspora have been incorporated into one diverse Israeli cuisine. And, of course, future waves of migrants (such as the French, currently) will all add to this culinary melting pot.

    3-way race with Sanders least pro-Israel

    Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire former three-term mayor of New York City, is considering an independent run for the US presidency. He told friends and associates that he would be willing to spend at least $1 billion of his own money on a campaign for the November 2016 election and has aides drawing up plans. However, it seems, that the Jewish media tycoon will only run if the other options are fellow-Jew Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump (who has frum Jewish grandchildren.

    “WOOLIES RUBBISHES RUMOURS OF GOING GAZA ON ISRAEL” - first published in July 2014 comes a close second in the Top Reads of all time on SAJR Online - at just over 25 000 reads & almost 200 comments. Woolies came out strongly apolitical & moved to stifle mischievous rumours that it was planning to stop carrying Israeli products. They chose the pages of JR to say 'it’s all nonsense', much to the chagrin of the anti-Israel lobby. The story created a daily unique visitor record of 12 241 that still stands. At peak, the website had 823 simultaneous users online.

    “JEWS PER SE ARE PEACE-LOVING PEOPLE” said PE lawyer Maureen Jansen, pictured, this week, vowing to sue the SAJBD which had laid a hate speech complaint against her last week with the SAHRC.

    The Rhodes fiasco, what it cost them and who left after our exposé. The rise of toxic anti-Zionism, followed by the fall of a once-revered university, has all the makings of a thriller. Over 3 years it involved institutional spying on Jews & illicit use of public funds to bash Israel. After determined attempts by some Jewish leaders to leave it alone & those of a brave few to fight & conquer, Rhodes’ devastating & very expensive defeat, loss of leadership & huge losses of Jewish donor funding, proved a lesson to institutions with more intellect at the helm.

    Zuma to ANC members: Don’t go to Israel

    President Zuma read significant parts of a document entitled: “Statement of the National Executive Committee” (NEC) at the ANC's 104th birthday party last Shabbos. The statements on the Middle East made up a mere three paragraphs of the 7,000-word NEC statement, but marks the first time that Zuma has personally uttered a statement discouraging travel – albeit with his ANC hat on - to Israel. This, say pundits, marks a significant change over the same documents and speeches from previous years.
