Shame on Natalie Portman

Dear Editor:

Israeli born Actress Natalie Portman today announced she would not take part in the prize ceremony for the Genesis Prize, slated to be held in Israel in June 2018. The Genesis Prize Foundation, which awards what it calls the “Jewish Nobel,” had previously named Ms. Portman this year’s awardee, until she notified Genesis that “[r]ecent events in Israel have been extremely distressing to her and she does not feel comfortable participating in any public events in Israel” and that “she cannot in good conscience move forward with the ceremony.”

The Genesis Prize Foundation cancelled the prize ceremony, saying that its organizers “fear that

Ms. Portman’s decision will cause our philanthropic initiative to be politicized, something we have worked hard for the past five years to avoid.”

Shame on Natalie Portman for bowing to those who boycott Israel.

Israel’s Culture Minister Miri Regev hit it right on the head noting that,“ …Natalie Portman fell into the hands of the BDS supporters. Portman, a Jewish actress born in Israel, joins those who tell the successful, wondrous founding of the State of Israel as ‘a tale of darkness and darkness.’

Sane people must agree with Hillel Neuer of UN Watch who told Portman that “If 30,000 rioters were at your borders & approaching your family in Los Feliz, and they were orchestrated by a terror group that advocates the murder of all Jews, I believe you would “in good consicience” support officers doing their best to protect you.”

Israel is the only real democracy in the Middle East, where all religions are protected, where women have equal rights. Israel is a beacon of light. Shame on Natalie Portman for standing against Israel.

The Genesis Prize “honors individuals who serve as an inspiration to the next generation of Jews through their outstanding professional achievement along with their commitment to Jewish values and the Jewish people.” They must revoke their decision to award her the prize immediately.

Shame on Natalie Portman.

Creeping Sharia Law in America?

Dear Editor:

Sharia law is destined to be the law of the land if the Democrats take over our congress later on this year. The Progressive-Democrats in control of Maine voted to allow Female Genital Mutilation among its citizens. Talk about brutality towards women by basically bowing down to those Muslims who follow the Koran to the letter of the law. Beating of wives is also in their religious rule book. That will be soon considered…of course, if the wife agrees to it. Children can be killed if they hang out with or date Infidels.

Liberal judges will eventually consider the religious faith’s rules when judging Muslims and rule according to a combination or our Constitution and the Koran. Freedom of the practice of religion, they’ll call it. In due time, the Koran will win out as it is doing in Europe and as we see, in our own country. It may sound bizarre but a vote for a Democrat clears the way for the eventuality of Islamic supremacy right here in the USA. Don’t laugh or shrug your shoulders…..they mean business!!

Standing Up for the 2nd Amendment

Dear Editor:

Here you have a student survivor of the Parkland HS shooting, Kyle Kashuv, who lawfully goes to the gun range with his Dad and is now a sitting duck to be persecuted for doing what he legally is entitled to and should do…spend time with his Dad in a form of recreation.

According to his accounts, his principal (who should be sued) targeted him with accusations that are surely now well known to all the kids in school. Led by their outspoken, mindless student “Democrat” leaders and their followers, he will surely be bullied, berated and isolated by his classmates for touching a weapon!!! He will probably be forced to go to a private school, the tuition for which should be paid for by the “Coward” County Schools.

The two “security” guys who interrogated him without his parents’ permission or presence, should be sued for improper behavior. Their job description does not include grilling without proper cause. The “Coward” County officer who joined in the intense grilling of a minor w/o parental consent and his department are also targets of a great law suit. And while these “bullies” were locked in the office with this traumatized, innocent kid, who was minding the store and doing what they are paid to do and that’s to walk the halls and grounds to protect and defend the school and its kids.

If I were his parent, I’d pull him out of this wasteland school (he’s too good for them), put him into a non-public school setting and get myself a great lawyer to sue all those involved including “Coward” County Sheriff, Scott Israel. Their stupidity deserves a great $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ settlement.

Arabs Uniting Against Iran

Dear Editor:

“Regional interference in Arab affairs has reached an unprecedented degree. And first of these is the Iranian interference, the aim of which is not for the well-being of the Arabs or their interests”

Bernie The Commie !

Dear Editor

Bernie Sanders is back in the news. The man is no longer hiding it, he is beyond a Democratic-socialist, the man is a pure communist. The latest, he wants government jobs for all!  Yes, he wants to eliminate poverty by having everyone work for the federal government. The scary thing about all of this, Bernie Sanders is a mainstream candidate who millions of our children adored and here he is making one of the most out in the open calls for ending private enterprise, in veiled language.  He will eliminate all unemployment by having the government provide training and jobs for all, sounds like a disaster.   Over the 20th century we learned what this kind of thinking results in, equal starvation for all.  A pure Communist out in the open, not in the fringe of politics, an elected Senator and serious presidential contender. Unreal
