Media ignore Farrakhan’s Chicago speech blaming Jews for society’s problems

With the exception of conservative media like Fox News, Free Beacon and National Review, this story has been ignored by mainstream media (google “Farrakan” and “Chicago”). If anyone else this famous had spoken such hateful words about Blacks, Hispanics or gays — in Chicago’s United Center with thousands in attendance no less — this would be a major story.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison tell parliament “Israel’s light is now a beacon of democracy in the Middle East”
February 19, 2019

The UN General Assembly is now the place where Israel is bullied and where anti-Semitism is cloaked in language about human rights. Think about it: a nation of immigrants; with a free press; parliamentary democracy; financially prosperous; the source of innovation in the world; and a refuge from persecution and genocide, is somehow now the centre of cruelty in the world, according to some in the UN. That is intellectual fraud…Last year, at my direction, Australia opposed six resolutions that attacked Israel in the UN General Assembly. In the past, we had abstained on these resolutions. Not anymore, and not on my watch. My Government will not turn a blind eye to an anti-Semitic agenda masquerading as defence of human rights in the UN. READ MORE

Israeli spacecraft poised to become first privately funded lander on the Moon

February 19, 2019

On Thursday evening, SpaceX is scheduled to launch another Falcon 9 rocket from Florida, but this time, the vehicle will be carrying a payload it’s never transported before: a spacecraft bound for the Moon. One of the three payloads on the rocket is an Israeli-made lander that will travel through space over the next two months and then try to land on the lunar surface. If the touchdown is a success, it’ll be the first time that a vehicle made with mostly private money has ever landed on the Moon or any other planetary body. The lander is called Beresheet, the Hebrew word for “Genesis,” and it’s the creation of an Israeli nonprofit called SpaceIL. READ MORE
