GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump has, from the beginning of his unlikely campaign, touted his strength as a self-funded man of the people. The one candidate who not only isn’t “bought” but cannot be bought, because he already has plenty of cash to pay his own way. Now, while that’s never been precisely true – […]
“Work hard and you shall do well.” Jonah Engler “The golden rule for every business man is this: “Put yourself in your customer’s place.” Orison Swett Marden “It takes more than capital to swing business. You’ve got to have the A. I. D. degree to get by — Advertising, Initiative, and Dynamics.” Ren Mulford Jr. […]
While the Donald Sterling saga and debates about race continue, is not it great that New York City is largely invisible in this story about race, and NYC media isn’t jumping on this bandwagon? As a 39-year old born and bred New Yorker, I remember the racial fears that existed in this city when I […]
To ensure that Israel is not just seen as a political entity, in recent years, CUFI has increased its level of support for Israel and Jewish people by not only disseminating issues about Israel’s politics and struggles, but by using its member base to make the Christian world more understanding and appreciative of the Jewish faith and its practices. Prior to the 2013 fast of Tisha B’Av this past July 16th, CUFI sent a note to its members alerting them to the tragedies that befell Jews on this day in history, and said, “Praise God that this 9th of Av of different. This 9th of Av millions of Christians around the world have pledged to our Jewish brothers and sisters- Never Again. Never Again will we be silent. Never Again will they be alone.”
At the 2013 AIPAC convention, Edwin Black of the IBC Channel interviewed Juda Engelmayer on Israel’s politics and the world view on the Jewish State.
He took coffee, a basic common drink that everyone knows, but no one really considers news, and he made it part of the political discussion.
The Republican Party isn’t delivering the way a strong brand should. If it were a failing business, how would a savvy businessperson turn it around?
In another address on the matter, former Democratic Congressman and president of the Center for Middle East Peace, Robert Wexler said that President Obama’s policy on Israel shows, “an unflinching commitment” and assured the audience that “The president directly intervened to make sure this amendment happened,” and had the Jerusalem language added back to the platform.
That “unflinching commitment” must have been yet unknown to White House spokesman Jay Carney when, prior to the Convention, at a White House press briefing on July 26, he refused to acknowledge that Jerusalem was considered the Capital of Israel. This was subsequently reported on by media, and the video posted to Youtube of his dodging of the question is indelible evidence of the President’s less than certain policy on Israel.
Zimmerman himself likely does not have a lot of money, but there was enough money raised through public defense campaign established for him by outside groups to use for bail. Zimmerman either did not think of it as belonging to him per se, or thought it was for defense and not bail, or maybe he truly just did not even consider it. Either way, he kept quiet, and in public relations and crisis communications the one thing you cannot have happen happened to Zimmerman — his carelessness over an issue that would normally be chalked up to a minor misinterpretation of the court’s question as to his ability to post bail, became the “big lie”.
The parade is the largest gathering of Jews outside of Israel to celebrate the forming of the Jewish state. In the past, it was arranged by the Israel Tribute Committee with respect and dignity. This year, however, some of that respect and dignity may be diminished. Not only will school groups, Jewish organizations, synagogues of all stripes, Zionism-inspired artists and the like proudly proclaim their love for Israel, but this year’s parade will also see people marching who stand accused by some of actively working to undermine Israel. It matters little whether the accusation is a false one. This is a case in which perception counts more than reality.
