ZOA Criticizes US Denying Security Clearance of Jewish Dentist Because He Has Relatives In Israel


The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) is appalled that the U.S. Office of Personnel Management decided that Jewish-American dentist Dr. Gershon Pincus has “divided loyalties” and denied the dentist’s security clearance for the sole reason that Dr. Pincus has an elderly mother, brother and sister living in Israel. The security clearance denial means that Dr. Pincus will lose his dream job serving our American troops as a dentist at an off-base U.S. Navy clinic.

Dutch Baptist Pastor Takes to the Streets
to Show Solidary With Israel and Jews

harper – A Netherlands-based Baptist pastor and members of his church took to the streets of Amsterdam with Israeli flags in order to express support for Israel and Dutch Jews.

U.S. Navy Starts to Accompany Ships in
Strait Where Iran Seized Cargo Carrier


The U.S. Navy has begun accompanying American-flagged ships in the Strait of Hormuz, defense officials said on Thursday, in response to Iran’s seizure of a Marshall Islands-flagged ship this week in the gateway to the Persian Gulf.

Navy warships are providing greater protection for U.S.-flagged vessels moving through the narrow strait where Iranian patrol boats confronted and took control of the M/V Maersk Tigris on Tuesday.

Tensions in the Gulf are bringing further uncertainty to U.S. efforts to forge a nuclear agreement with Iran by a June 30 diplomatic deadline.

While Iran characterized its seizure of the cargo ship as the outgrowth of an unresolved financial dispute, American military officials said they saw it as a provocative show of force by Tehran.

On Thursday, after the Pentagon informed President Barack Obama about the plan, Navy ships started offering stepped-up security for American ships moving in and out of the Persian Gulf, defense officials said.

“Out of an abundance of caution, because of the unpredictability of our Iranian friends, we’re now positioned so that, should the Iranians decide that they’re going to be stupid, we’re ready to respond,” said one U.S. official.

Iranian officials didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment on Thursday.

The American decision signals another increase in tensions in the Persian Gulf, where the U.S. military sent an aircraft carrier in April to shadow an Iranian flotilla suspected of carrying arms for Tehran’s militant allies in Yemen. The flotilla eventually turned back, and some Pentagon officials saw the seizure of the Maersk Tigris as a response to that incident.

Palestinian State Has Never Existed

The Dome of The Rock in 1875, totally barren. Proof it is not Islam’s third holiest site. Whether the Muslims in Jerusalem in 1875?

Félix Bonfils (1831-1885) was a French photographer and writer who was active in the Middle East. Four years after his arrival he reported 15,000 prints of Egypt, Palestine, Syria, and Greece, and 9,000 stereoscopic-views. He traveled to the region several times and we hear of no mass population of Palestinians, which contradicts everything the Palestinians lie about to the world.

His pictures did not manage to capture any photographs of a single so-called ‘Palestinian’ who are suppose to have lost land to Jewish occupation.
