Veteran Arab affairs journalist Avi Issacharoff on Wednesday conveyed sentiments that Gaza residents are preparing for a military conflict with the Jewish state in a Times of Israel article headlined “As IDF sweeps West Bank, Gaza residents prepare for war.”
PCUSA: Dying Church Boycotts Israel in Face of Embarrassing Jewish Begging
Debbie Schlussel reports: On Friday, the dying Presbyterian Church of the United States of America (PCUSA) voted to boycott Israel by withdrawing its investments in a few companies that do business with Israel (but won’t pull investments in companies that do biz with human rights abusing Muslim nations).

Government Arrests People for Anti-Obama Posts!
Conservative Daily reports: Brendan Raub is a Marine who would often take to Facebook to express his, for lack of a better word, “displeasure” of how the Obama administration was running the country. In one of his Facebook posts, Brendan listed everything wrong with the country today, talking about how our leaders do not respect the People. Ironically, the post also criticized how the government doesn’t respect individuals’ rights. Within days, Brendan Raub was in police custody. Not because he physically hurt anyone, or was plotting to overthrow the country, but because he voiced his dissent and urged people to take their country back. Once he was detained, the FBI forced Raub to undergo a psychological evaluation against his will. When the tests came back, it was determined that Brendan Raub was suffering from “Oppositional Defiant Disorder,” a mental disorder where individuals cannot help but oppose authority figures. Under this definition, half of the country is now “Oppositional Defiant.”
