And Earl doesn't waste any time publishing; in his first post, Political
correctness regarding Islam: America's biggest mistake?
America’s political and religious leaders stand firm against radical Islam and
the threat of violence against Israel and Western civilization…Political
correctness blinds citizens and politicians alike, and it is a tool Muslims
could easily use to hijack and colonize American society. America’s future as a
free and democratic society hangs in the balance and our future is linked with
Welcome Earl! We look forward to reading your next
I would also like to offer a warm welcome to Adelman, whose
new blog, Calling out Terrorism
, addresses counter-terrorism, Islam and the
National Security of both Israel and the US.
Gadi teaches, lectures, and
speaks publicly on terrorism, jihad, Islam and Shari’a (Islamic Law). His
articles have appeared in dozens of publications and have been translated into
several languages from Spanish to Vietnamese. In addition to blogging for
JPost.com, Adelman has his own weekly radio show "America Akbar" that can be
heard on the Radio Jihad network on Blogtalk radio.
In his first blog,
Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer
, Gadi offers harsh criticism of
the ties between the current US Administration and the Muslim Brotherhood both
abroad and within senior positions in the US government.
bloggers were also busy this week and here are some of the highlights. Michelle
Huberman's post, ‘Forgotten’ Refugees no more – thanks to Danny Ayalon
discusses the plight of Jewish refugees from Arab lands which was brought center
stage this month.
"We have Danny Ayalon and the current government to
thank for putting this issue firmly on the international agenda. The forgotten
refugees are forgotten no more." It's about time.
Rabbi Eric Yoffie posts
a controversial blog this week, Settlers, security, and the teachings of
, in which he questions the conclusions of Israeli leaders. The rabbi
offers his take based on the words of the prophet Amos,"I recommend, therefore,
that they [Israeli leaders] look to the teachings of Amos: Territories and
borders are not now and have never been the essential issue. What is essential
is a fair resolution of a difficult conflict that will provide security for
Israel and justice for all the inhabitants of the land.
What's your take?
Read his post and join the discussion.
Speaking of discussions, to
conclude our wrap I turn to the ever popular David Turner, whose blog, Christian
Insecurity and the Jewish Problem: the failed Second Coming
, has evoked over 300
comments from JPost.com readers!
Wow. Keep up the great work, David; I think its
safe to say we all look forward to your next blog.
