The Catmage Chronicles
It's been hundreds of years since the Darkness last surfaced, a grim time when both humans and Catmages lost their lives. But now the Wild Ones work with humans again, and thirteen-year-old Andy Cohen gets the surprise of his life when a talking cat shows up in his front yard. Goldeneyes, a powerful Catmage, needs Andy’s help. In the exciting first installment of this new series, Meryl Yourish takes the reader into a world of magical cats, dark powers, and a boy who finds himself entangled in their war.

Screw the UN and their year of solidarity with Palestinians. Screw the EU and Catherine Ashton’s refusal to mention Jews in her Holocaust remembrance day statement. Let’s take another look at the IAF flyover of Auschwitz, and remember that “Never … Continue reading
One of the constant refrains of anti-Semites around the world is that the Holocaust was not unique, that others than the Jews were targeted for extinction or mass murder or genocide. And yet, the more you read about the ruthless, … Continue reading
Howard Jacobson, winner of the Man Booker Prize, delivered this year’s Jerusalem Address at the B’Nai Brith World Center in Jerusalem. This is his take on why the world hates Israel. The question is rhetorical. When will Jews be forgiven … Continue reading
This is a wonderful story. I read about it a while back and probably linked it, but here’s a video to get you thinking at the start of the High Holy Days. It’s a story of discovery and repentance.
This was posted by long_rifle in comments of a post from last year. I thought I’d bring it out of mothballs. I met a person today that I NEVER thought I’d meet in person. I met him on June 22, … Continue reading
The AP does it again. There simply is not a single thing that the AP can’t spin against Israel, especially when it comes to Netanyahu. Compare these two leads. First, the article that I presume was the original AP release: … Continue reading
