Some Links

Some links that the COGs will be unlikely to mention to their followers.

Max Blumenthal discusses David Horowitz slurring William Kristol as a "renegade Jew" for proposing to launch a third party candidate to campaign against Trump. What other forms of crude demagoguery will the public have to endure in this election campaign? If one wishes to criticize him there is no need to bring his religion into such arguments. It is to be hoped that this will not be the start of a nasty trend.

A Haaretz columnist bemoans the coarsening of Israeli society.

David Sheen listens to an ultra-Orthodox preacher tell an audience in Dimona, Israel not to marry non-Jews.

Israeli settlers near Bethlehem got caught threatening Palestinians with a fake gun. (Hat tip.)

The Iron Heel by Jack London (1908). A haunting novel warning of the possible rise of tyranny. A premonitions of the disasters that soon tore the world apart. Some of its political ideas have since become dated and show their age. However this novel's warning that those in power might be tempted to abuse their power remains as relevant as ever.
