FAKE HISTORY IN THE MAKING. The 100TH Anniversary of the UK's Balfour Declaration is coming up in November this year.

The Zionists have put up a web site celebratebalfour.org which looks similar in layout to the World Jewish Congress web site. However, it's copyrighted to The Israel Forever Foundation. Conservative UK Prime Minister Theresa May has pledged her government will celebrate the occasion with “remarkable, tolerant” Israel and Jews worldwide.

Britain's Conservative Party has a group called the “Conservative Friends of Israel” (similar to the US Republican Party's Friends of Israel group). In a speech to the CFI in December, May called the fateful letter written by Conservative foreign secretary Arthur James Balfour to Lord Rothschild in 1917 “one of the most important letters in history” which “demonstrates Britain's vital role in creating a homeland for the Jewish people.”

Hurray! Ivanka Trump may not be a Jew after all

Just think, she may be prevented from being associated with this elite gathering. What a blow!


IF SHE IS NOT ACCEPTED AS A JEW IN ISRAEL, then her children cannot be either. Trump's grandkids are possibly saved by a kippah.

According to a story in Britain's Daily Telegraph, Ivanka's conversion by an American rabbi doesn't hold water in Israel because the Chief Rabbinate of Israel has ruled that conversions supervised by New York rabbi Haskel Lookstein are invalid in the Jewish state.

A powerful and ultra-orthodox institution headquartered in Jerusalem, the Rabbinate wields major influence in the Israeli state. They and ultra-Orthodox political parties play key roles in Benjamin Netanyahu's coalition government. While he is secular, he "seems paralyzed" on the issue. But the case has been appealed to the Supreme Rabbinical Court, which could overturn the ruling. Too bad if it does.

Elie a no-show at Auschwitz event, but delivers an interview saying Jews can't be Jews without Israel

Elie Wiesel, right, in his office at Boston University with his Israeli editor, Yoel Rappel, whose interview with the famous "survivor" was published on January 28th in Israel’s Y-Net News.

“Personal reasons” has been given for Elie Wiesel’s failure to attend this year’s annual International Day of Commemoration in Memory of Victims of the Holocaust at Auschwitz-Birkenau January 27th.  This United Nations-declared commemoration day (since 2006) is being incorrectly called “Holocaust Memorial Day” or “Holocaust Remembrance Day” by the media and others who don’t feel like repeating the long, actual title.

The latter can become a problem because, as Wiesel’s interviewer pointed out in what follows :  “The American nation officially commemorates the memory of the victims of the Holocaust on the same day as the State of Israel” — that is,  on  Yom Hashoah according to the Hebrew calendar, which  falls in the Spring (April or May). This event is called “Days of Remembrance” and lasts for 7 days, beginning on Saturday evening Shabbat and ending at Shabbat one week later.  In this, like in so much else, the U.S. is in lock-step with Israel (with Israel leading, the United States Congress following).

However, both the U.S. and Israel also support and join in with the newer January 27th United Nations-proclaimed commemoration, since it was conceived and pushed through the UN by the State of Israel!  See here at bottom of page. That gives the world two major “Holocaust remembrance” events, all the better to “engrave” the holocaust into the minds of all humanity, but especially Western man.
