From Kiev to Ben Gurion University?
of a large university in Kiev, the Ukraine, the Interregional Academy of
Personnel Management, known in English by the acronym MAUP, he says that
Jews are evil, academia should research their evil, Chabad is the evilest
of all, engaged in terrorism, anti-Semitism does not exist and is a
fabrication. The Ukrainian National Conservative party, the most
anti-Semitic party in the country, was founded by MAUP's president, Georgy
Dear Lord, do you realize what this means? It is only a matter of time

The big question - why only him? There are 400 Jewish professors in
Israel even more anti-Israel and anti-Semitic than him?

The Israeli Lesson
February 5, 2008; Page A16
The news about yesterday's suicide bombing in the Israeli town of Dimona
is that it's news. In 2002, at the height of the second intifada, 451
Israelis were killed in terrorist attacks, including 14 suicide bombings.
By contrast, yesterday's attack, which killed one and injured 11, was the
first of its kind in more than a year.
This didn't happen by accident, or because Palestinian radicals have
somehow become less hostile to Israel. Responsibility for yesterday's
attack was claimed by the Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade, which is affiliated
with President Mahmoud Abbas's ostensibly moderate Fatah party. Islamist
Hamas remains even more ardently dedicated to Israel's destruction, a
point it emphasizes with its rocket barrages at southern Israeli cities
close to the Gaza Strip.
Instead, the difference has come because of Israel's increasingly
successful antiterrorist efforts. Key to that success has been the
construction of its ostensibly "illegal" security fence, its equally
"illegal" targeted assassinations of key terrorist leaders, its
"disproportional" attacks on terrorist enclaves in Jenin and elsewhere,
and other actions that saved innocent lives but which much of the
international community deplored.
One of the most common arguments against Israel's actions is that it would
feed a "cycle of violence." It's fair to say that what happened is closer
to the opposite. As Israel put pressure on terrorist leaders, they were
forced to spend their time running for their lives rather than planning
the next attack. As Israel set up physical obstacles to terrorism, the
need for large-scale military incursions declined, allowing a semblance of
normal life to return for Israelis as well as Palestinians. Contrary to
the conventional wisdom, Israel proved that terrorists can be defeated --
a lesson that applies equally in Iraq.
