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.

Can the AP whitewash utterly reprehensible Palestinian statements any more than this? Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas suggested on Friday that Jews should be banned from a Jerusalem holy site revered by both Jews and Muslims. “Suggested”? Really? In a speech … Continue reading
I hadn’t realized I’d defaulted them to the off position. Go ahead, talk amongst yourselves.
A few of the news items that are pissing me off today: Can you say, “First Amendment”? Apparently, they can’t: Houston city attorneys subpoena five pastors’ sermons, asking for anything that discusses “HERO, the Petition, Mayor Annise Parker, homosexuality, or … Continue reading
There was a symbolic vote by the U.K. Parliament to recognize the fictional state of Palestine. Fewer than half the MPs were present, and most of Israel’s supporters were missing. It was also a completely contradictory vote: I want a … Continue reading
This is an extraordinary article by former AP Jerusalem reporter and editor Matti Friedman. Read it all, and weep. He explains what we’ve been telling you for years: There is a narrative that the news media follows on Israel. Anti-Israel … Continue reading
It never ceases to amaze me. You’d think I’d be used to this by now, and yet, no. The McClatchy article is particularly heinous. Gee, the poor Palestinian terrorists. They go and kidnap three teenagers, and they might have to … Continue reading
Israel is ratcheting up the pressure on Hamas to release the three kidnapped teenagers. It’s definitely getting to Mahmoud Abbas, who lashed out at Hamas. Meantime, Israel is clamping down on Hamas prisoners’ amenties. Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch said … Continue reading
The IDF has arrested nearly every Hamas leader in the West Bank. The Palestinian Authority, besides mocking Israel by saying that Israel alone is responsible for security in the area where the teens were kidnapped, changed their World Cup logo … Continue reading
The IDF has positively identified Hamas as the terror group behind the kidnapping of three Israeli teenagers, one of whom is an American citizen. Not that being a U.S. citizen matters. U.S. citizens have been murdered in terrorist attacks and … Continue reading
The current administration, unlike George W. Bush, does not believe that men are evil. President Obama ran on the notion that he would extend his hand to Iran, and has done so, ignoring evidence of massive cheating, stalling, and manipulation … Continue reading
Don’t worry, they’ll find a way to blame Israel: A massive dust storm hit Tehran with 70 mph winds, killing at least four people. Too bad it wasn’t, say, during a show when all the ayatollahs were on the reviewing … Continue reading
How can you tell when a Palestinian spokesman is lying? His mouth is open: The Palestinians are claiming the new prime minister for the unified Hamas-Fatah government has been invited to Washington in June, thus proving the U.S. approves of … Continue reading
Like a Jewish stone: The Stones are starting their June 4 concert at 9:15 so religious Jews can observer Shavuot. I am really liking the Stones more and more these days. Yes, Mick, you are forgiven for “Under My Thumb.” … Continue reading
Sure, when hell freezes over: Iran has summoned Mark Zuckerberg to court over Facebook’s violations of privacy. Yeah, I can totally see a Jewish billionaire showing up in an Iranian kangaroo court. That’s as likely to happen as, oh, Facebook … Continue reading
