Raphael Warnock is a dangerous anti-America and anti-Semitic Marxist and racist. The people of Georgia must come out in droves to prevent Warnock from having a seat in the United States Senate. The man is nuts. Watch the video evidence in the two tweets below.

The frightening truth about what’s really happening in America
By Phil Schneider - November 16, 2020 4541 0
Glenn Beck believes that corruption is rampant in the media, and especially in the Democratic party. This video is basically a long rant – but it is not an unfounded rant. Beck is an emotional person, and he puts on quite a performance. He is convinced that the election is not over at all, and clearly believes that there is a great conspiracy going on now to do nearly everything to get Donald Trump out of the office.

Decades from now, the 2020 election may be viewed as the election that changed the way that elections are fun in the United States of America. Donald Trump may be able to retain power, or he may not. But it seems very probable that there will be massive distrust in the electoral system – on a level that has not been seen in our lifetime. No matter if Trump loses or wins the legal challenge, the distrust in the system will be sky high. Calls for change will be everywhere – on both sides – and the Supreme Court will probably order a recount in a way that will drive the anti-Trump rabble crazy.
 
The protests and riots from the Black Lives Matter movement may very well look like child’s play when hundreds of millions of people who hate Donald Trump feel like they can’t drive the orange man out of the White House. 2021 may become known as the year that the political system broke and needed to be rebuilt. Donald Trump may not be the perfect person to rebuild a broken system. But he may be the right person to scream that the system is broken and needs to be fixed.
 
 
As the corona vaccine spreads across America, more and more people will not be scared to go out and protest. Most everyone feels too cooped up at home. If there was ever a cause to fight for, the pro-Trump and anti-Trump movements will feel that this is their time. Get ready for what may become one of the rockiest winters in a long time in the United States of America. Change is hard, and especially when it means that extremely powerful groups are about to lose their grip on enormous power.

Israel Demands Apology from CNN Over Host Comparing Trump Admin to Kristallnacht
By CBN News
Contributor
4 hours ago
JERUSALEM, Israel – Israeli leaders are calling on CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour to apologize for comments she made comparing President Donald Trump’s actions to Kristallnacht, a Nazi pogrom against Jews in 1938 widely seen as a key starting point for the Holocaust.
 
“This week, 82 years ago, Kristallnacht happened,” Amanpour said Thursday at the beginning of her CNN’s foreign affairs program. “It was the Nazis’ warning shot across the bow of our human civilization that led to genocide against a whole identity and in that tower of burning books, it led to an attack of fact, knowledge, history, and truth.”
 
‘Lowest of Low’: CNN’s Christiane Amanpour Compares Trump Presidency to Nazi Massacre of Jews
 
She continued, saying: “After four years of a modern-day assault on those same values by Donald Trump, the Biden-Harris team pledges a return to norms, including the truth. And every day, Joe Biden makes presidential announcements about good governance and the health and security of the American people, while the great brooding figure of his defeated opponent rages, conducting purges of perceived enemies and preventing a transition.
 
In response, Israel’s consul-general to Atlanta, Anat Sultan-Dadon, wrote a letter to Richard Davis, CNN’s executive vice president of News Standards and Practices on Sunday demanding an apology from Amanpour and the network. CNN is based in Atlanta.

Is ‘antisemitism’ no longer fit for purpose?
In wake of the EHRC's damning report into Labour's antisemitism problems, we look at the adopting of a new term - anti-Jewish racism - by some communal groups and individuals

In the maelstrom and vitriol that followed the Equality and Human Rights Commission’s damning report into the Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn last month, few noticed the near total omission in the response from the Jewish community of the very word the EHRC had just reported on: ‘Antisemitism’.
 
In a joint statement, the Board of Deputies and the Jewish Leadership Council said the report “disgraces those who attacked us for speaking out against anti-Jewish racism”, calling Jeremy Corbyn “a figurehead for old and new anti-Jewish attitudes”.
 
 
The Jewish Labour Movement said it had been warning of a “deepening casual culture of anti-Jewish racism” since 2015. The Holocaust Educational Trust said it confirmed “the depth of the endemic anti-Jewish racism in Labour”.

Labour Friends of Israel praised Keir Starmer for starting “to root out anti-Jewish racism”. Even Labour Against Antisemitism (LAAS) distanced itself from its own name, talking about the party’s “institutional anti-Jewish racism”.
 
Commentators soon picked up the baton. In his searing column, Jonathan Freedland of the Guardian began with ‘antisemitism’ but ended up asking “why anti-Jewish racism might take root”.
 
Yet the change was already underway. In September, the Union of Jewish Students slammed universities for “failing to sufficiently protect their Jewish students from anti-Jewish racism, the oldest form of racial hatred”.
 
Later that month, the Antisemitism Policy Trust – which may now need renaming – said Microsoft’s chatterbot had “learned from its social media interactions to post anti-Jewish racism”.
 
Two weeks ago, it even seemed to have filtered through to the BBC, its news site saying Labour had “failed to stamp out anti-Jewish racism when Jeremy Corbyn was leader”. Goodbye old Jew hatred; hello new rebranded one.

Some may see this as odd, given all the fights it took to get here. For a start, there was the heave-ho over the infamous dash – aka The Battle of the Hyphen – when ‘anti-Semitism’ faced off against ‘antisemitism’.
 
Then there was the scrap over ‘what antisemitism is’, with criticism of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) working definition giving way to a slow acceptance across the UK.
 
Yet odd it is not, because the switch to “anti-Jewish racism” is neither natural evolution nor incidental lexicography, as evidenced in the Jewish Leadership Council (JLC)’s annual financial filings, published online last month.
 
Going back a couple of years, as Labour’s antisemitism woes began to resonate both in the media and throughout Westminster, the JLC said it “took the opportunity to educate not just those involved in politics but the wider public”.
 
It held eight focus groups, with the help of Gabriel Milland and Public First, and conducted polls from the end of 2018 and through 2019 which “proved hugely beneficial to our understanding of the penetration of the issue amongst the public, as well as what successful messaging looked like”.
 
Enlighteningly, it says: “One example is the shift from the term antisemitism – a word with absolutely no recognition in one focus group – to the more recognised notion of ‘anti-Jewish racism’. We have made a concerted effort to use this language.”
 
Here it was, then: recognition that this is a purposeful change, because the word ‘antisemitism’ had in some cases “absolutely no recognition” from the public. What it meant, in other words, often meant nothing.
 
A spokesman says the focus groups were held in Dudley, South Manchester, Putney and Croydon, “to avoid major centres of Jewish life” but also to have a good UK spread, and that they showed huge differences.
 
“In Croydon, despite it being nowhere near any big Jewish communities, everyone had met a Jewish person,” he says. “In Dudley, only one person had.”
 
The organisation went all in on research – its YouGov poll sampled 5,000. It also polled the Jewish community through Survation “to ensure we full

Jewish News campaign for life-saving vehicle launched in memory of Rabbi Sacks
We've joined forced with MDA UK to raise £135,000 to honour the former Chief Rabbi who was a 'champion' of the emergency service charity
By JUSTIN COHEN 
November 18, 2020, 5:43 pm
Lord and Lady Sacks with Stuart Glyn
A campaign to donate a life-saving vehicle for Israel in memory of Lord Sacks is launched today by Jewish News and MDA UK.
The initiative seeks to raise £135,000 to purchase the first of a new batch of bloodmobiles which will transport teams to collect some of the 1,100 units each day that keep the country’s blood supply full. Bearing the name of the former chief rabbi, it will eventually find a home at the new British-funded Blood and Logistics Centre, which is due to open next year.
 
 
MDA UK described Lord Sacks, who passed away last week aged just 72, as a long-time “champion” of the charity and revealed £18,000 had already been pledged before the campaign was publicly launched. Chief Executive Daniel Burger said: “Eighty percent of Israel’s blood supplies are collected remotely and the current fleet is up to 19 years old and some are close to being beyond economic repair.  In addition, as Israel’s population and tourist population grows, MDA needs to increase its blood inventory in line with this growth and therefore these new vehicles play an essential part in this growth.

“The global Magen David Adom family is honoured to be part of this fundraising campaign. Nothing will give us more pride than seeing a bloodmobile on the streets of Israel bearing the name of Rabbi Lord Sacks and saving lives.”
Small blood mobile
Former prime minister Tony Blair, who has hailed Lord Sacks as “my hero” who enhanced hios knowledge about the place of Israel for Jews, told Jewish News: “This would be a fitting tribute to Rabbi Sacks, a truly exceptional man and humanitarian.”
A spokesperson for Lord Sacks’ family said: “This is a wonderful initiative and one which is hugely meaningful to all the family. Life is precious above all else, and the idea that any funds raised will go towards pikuach nefesh, saving peoples’ lives, is a fitting way of honouring the legacy of Rabbi Sacks z”l.”
On the day he was ennobled in 2009, Rabbi Sacks spoke at the MDA UK dinner. Then dinner chair, Nicholas Springer, said: “He delivered the best appeal speech we ever heard. He is sorely missed by both within and outside our community and the bloodmobile we are dedicating in is memory will be a fitting tribute.”

Former ambassador to the UK Daniel Taub added: “Reflecting community, service, taking responsibility and helping others, this is a wonderful tribute to many of the lessons Rabbi Sacks taught us, in his writings and in his life.”
Last week’s Jewish News front page
Rabbi Lionel Rosenfeld of Marble Arch Synagogue, where Lord Sacks was once the minister, described Rabbi Sacks as “our moral compass and spokesman. Donating to MDA for this vehicle in his name is a wonderful way to honour what he held dear – the sanctity of life. As Rabbi Sacks himself wrote: “Great strength to those who see to the needs of the injured and sick, and open our hearts in prayer and our hands in generosity, so that by our actions we may bring comfort, healing and support.”
 
The campaign was conceived by Jewish News a decade after we teamed up with Cockfosters Synagogue and legendary fundraiser Norman Rosenbaum to buy an MDA ambulance. By 2017, it had attended 10,733 calls, including almost 8,000 adult emergencies and more than 600 child emergencies. The vehicle and crew also helped more than 100 women to give birth.

Israel and Jerusalem listed as separate places in UK quarantine list
BY JEWISH NEWS REPORTER
Foreign Office decision to list the holy city as separate to Israel branded ‘absolutely inappropriate’ by the Board of Deputies
The Board of Deputies has criticised Whitehall mandarins as “absolutely inappropriate” after Israel and Jerusalem were listed separately as places from which visitors to the UK will no longer need to quarantine.
 
The angry reaction followed an announcement on Thursday from the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) regarding its weekly update on Covid-related travel corridors.
 
 
Jerusalem is listed separately because it includes East Jerusalem, which both Israelis and Palestinians claim, and whose status under international law remains that of an occupied territory.

However, the Board tweeted its feelings after ‘Israel’ and ‘Jerusalem’ both appeared in a list of countries as bullet points on the government’s website.
 
“Absolutely inappropriate to list ‘Jerusalem’ as a separate country,” it tweeted. “We have taken this up with the FCDO this morning and they are urgently reviewing it.”
 
On its website, the FCDO said it “no longer advises against all but essential travel to Israel, and no longer advises against all but essential travel to Jerusalem (including to East Jerusalem (Occupied Palestinian Territories)). Israel, and Jerusalem are both now on the list of countries and territories where self-isolation is not required on return to England, Wales, and Northern Ireland.”
 
Conservative Friends of Israel Parliamentary Chairmen Stephen Crabb, Lord Eric Pickles (Lords), and Honorary President Lord Polak urged the government to make an immediate correction to the advice about Jerusalem.
 
“The announcement of a travel corridor with Israel is excellent news. However, the FCDO’s decision to define Jerusalem as a territory separate from Israel is offensive and hostile.
 
“Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. To describe Jerusalem as anything other than an integral part of Israel is a fiction divorced from reality and the travel advice must be immediately corrected”.

This is unbelievable news! Following the announcement last month by the State Department that any human rights organization that supports the BDS movement will be considered antisemitic. We are blessed to have an administration that understands reality and institutes policy based on reality.

Scientists Have Proven that God is Protecting Israel
scientific-proof-g-d
How has Israel survived? How have less people been killed during various missile attacks than would be expected? Here is the answer.
Nuclear physicist, Gerald Schroeder, a known researcher in the past for The Weizmann Institute and Hebrew University, simply cannot be accused of unscientific thinking. When observing statistics that don’t seem all too logical, most of Schroeder’s colleagues admit that there was “luck” involved.
 
Impossible Stats?
The existence of the State of Israel, the fact that there were so few casualties from the Scud missiles shot down on Israel during the Persian Gulf War of 1991, all appear, on the surface, to be a stroke of luck. Schroeder, however, refuses to call it “luck.” Luck is just not a scientifically sound term. For nuclear physicists like Schroeder, the real answer is that God is protecting His people.
Dr. Schroeder makes the point that many miracles happen in what seems like a very natural manner. The Persian Gulf War in 1991 was an odd war. The States of Israel endured a massive bombing of an enormously powerful missile – the Scud missile – on heavily populated areas in Israel – Tel-Aviv and it’s surroundings. Not one person was killed from these bombing, though there were wounded. One man experienced a hart attack, and it is unclear if this was connected to the bombing.
One does not need to be a brilliant professor in order to reach the conclusions of Dr. Schroeder. But, it is most reassuring when someone of his stature makes it clear that the rational explanations of the occurrences in the modern State of Israel simply don’t hold water. We don’t need to be scared of the repercussions of accepting God’s involvement in this world. If it is logical to assume that there is a hand of God in charge of this world, and illogical to assume otherwise, then let’s accept that the creation and existence of the State of Israel is one big miracle.

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman discussed the possibility of normalizing relations between their two countries, a senior Saudi official said, though substantial agreement was reached on the subject during the hours-long meeting Sunday night.
 
According to a report by the Wall Street Journal Monday, one of the senior Saudi advisers familiar with the talks said that the meeting between Netanyahu and the Crown Prince in Neom, Saudi Arabia lasted a couple of hours, and centered on the possibility of normalizing ties between Israel and Saudi Arabia, as well as concerns over Iran.
 
Netanyahu and Mossad chief Yossi Cohen flew to Saudi Arabia at approximately 10:00 p.m. Sunday night onboard a private aircraft owned by Israeli businessman Ehud 'Udi' Angel.
 
Joined by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the three met with the Saudi Crown Prince in Neom, Saudi Arabia for clandestine talks.
 
Both the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office and the Saudi Foreign Ministry declined to comment on the meeting.

Israeli scientists have claimed a major breakthrough in the fight against cancer after using Nobel Prize winning technology to destroy cancerous cells in mice, leaving everything around them intact.
In what researchers have called a world first, the study from Tel Aviv University suggests the CRISPR Cas-9 gene editing system, which allows scientists to make precise alterations to DNA, can be used like “tiny scissors” to target and treat cancer in animals.
 
 
The technology, which gained its creators the Nobel Prize for Chemistry this year, was examined by cancer expert Professor Dan Peer, who said that there are “no side effects” from the process.

“This technology can extend the life expectancy of cancer patients and we hope, one day, cure the disease”, Prof. Peer said after his peer-reviewed research was published in the Science Advances journal.
 
“If we can use this technology, then within three treatments we can destroy a tumour. This technology can physically cut the DNA in cancerous cells, and those cells will not survive.”

Peer told the Times of Israel that there are hopes the process will eventually replace chemotherapy – a technique that, unlike the process used in the Tel Aviv study, is administered to the whole body.
His research involved hundreds of mice with two of the most aggressive types of cancer – glioblastoma, a brain cancer, and metastatic ovarian cancer.
The mice who received treatment were found to have double the life expectancy of the control group, with a 30 percent higher survival rate for glioblastoma and an 80 percent higher survival rate for metastatic ovarian cancer.
Peer said that his team plan to develop the treatment for all cancers and that the technique could be ready to use on humans within two years.
Treatment would be personalised to each patient based on a biopsy which would determine whether they received a general injection or an injection directly into the tumour.
“”It will probably take some time before the new treatment can be used in humans, but we are optimistic”, Professor Peer said.
“When we first spoke of treatments with mRNA twelve years ago, people thought it was science fiction.
“I believe that in the near future, we will see many personalized treatments based on genetic messengers – for both cancer and genetic diseases.”
