No Ramadan can be properly celebrated without killing Jews

Four Israelis slaughteredr, others in serious condition in Ramadan terror attack in central Tel Aviv.


The official Fatah Facebook calls all of the Tel Aviv victims "settlers."


Palestinians in  Gaza, Wst Bank, Istanbul hand out sweets to express their joy over Tel Aviv shooting attack.

Dignity and pride! Bravo to the two Palestinians who committed the resistance operation in Tel Aviv today!


An American Public Intellectual condemns the murders:

Marc Lamont Hill:

" Israel has suspended travel permits for 83,000 Palestinians for the whole of Ramadan"

A Liberal Decalogue:

 Bertrand Russell's The Ten Commandments to teachers and other engaged mortals:

1. Do not feel absolutely certain of anything.

2. Do not think it worth while to proceed by concealing evidence, for the evidence is sure to come to light.

3. Never try to discourage thinking for you are sure to succeed.

4. When you meet with opposition, even if it should be from your husband or your children, endeavor to overcome it by argument and not by authority, for a victory dependent upon authority is unreal and illusory.

5. Have no respect for the authority of others, for there are always contrary authorities to be found.

6. Do not use power to suppress opinions you think pernicious, for if you do the opinions will suppress you.

7. Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric.

8. Find more pleasure in intelligent dissent than in passive agreement, for, if you value intelligence as you should, the former implies a deeper agreement than the latter.

9. Be scrupulously truthful, even if the truth is inconvenient, for it is more inconvenient when you try to conceal it.

10. Do not feel envious of the happiness of those who live in a fool’s paradise, for only a fool will think that it is happiness.


Now contrast it with this decalogue:
