How to Criticize Israel without being Anti-Semitic: The Unofficial Guide
The news media have once again been ablaze with reports of Israel’s military attack on Gaza. The historic Israeli-Palestinian conflict has, consequently, returned as a subject of discussion at cafés, salons, and dinner tables.
The discussion, however, is not an easy one to have—unless, of course, you are foursquare behind Israel. Criticism of Israel very quickly lands the critic into trouble; accusations of anti-Semitism are fired back as if from an Uzi. What is more, these accusations can sometimes come accompanied by raised voices, red faces, bared teeth, waved fists, and even rude expletives. Sometimes, not even Jews can avoid them. So it is understandable that non-Jews desiring to avoid drama think it best to keep mum.
Washington Times, Artesia, New Mexico: Chicken pox outbreak puts illegal immigrant facility on lockdown (Now it can truly be said that open-borders Obama is a pox upon the nation.)
Chicken pox outbreak puts illegal immigrant facility on lockdown
The federal government’s new facility to house illegal immigrant families surging across the border has been put on lockdown because of chicken pox, with no immigrants allowed to be transferred in or out, a congressman said this week.
Hundreds of illegal immigrants being kept at the campus of the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, New Mexico, are being treated for and vaccinated against chicken pox after an outbreak, said Rep. Steve Pearce, the Republican congressman whose district includes Artesia. ...

New York Times: In Queens, Immigrants Clash With Residents of New Homeless Shelter - “But in interviews, many said the homeless families simply made them feel unsafe. ‘When you see them, it looks like they’re going to mug you’” (More cracks in the vibrant rainbow.)
In Queens, Immigrants Clash With Residents of New Homeless Shelter
The crowd of 500 included grandmothers and small children, Chinese immigrants and the president of a local Republican club, all shouting that the mayor had trampled their rights.
The source of their anger? The 180 homeless families that New York City had moved into the defunct Pan American Hotel in Elmhurst, Queens. The residents felt nervous around the new arrivals, they said. There were reports of shoplifting from the Good Fortune Supermarket, public urination and panhandling — all things, they said, that had been unheard-of in their neighborhood until now.
During the protest on Tuesday night, one of the organizers spoke through a bullhorn in Mandarin, as a few people looked out the windows of the hotel.
“Speak in English!” a woman leaning out a window shouted, holding up her phone, perhaps to videotape the protest.
“Homeless with money,” a protester sneered, referring to the woman and her phone.
While local residents often object when the city opens a homeless shelter in their midst, the vitriol in Elmhurst since the city began moving families into the hotel in early June has shocked New York officials. ...
Washington Times: Obama mum on where illegal immigrant children are sheltered - “We do not identify the approximately 100 regular/permanent Unaccompanied Alien Children program shelters for the safety and security of minors and staff at the facilities" (Right, Mom and Pop America would come in there foaming at the mouth with their ax handles and break the place up.)
Obama mum on where illegal immigrant children are sheltered
The Obama administration is concealing key details about its response to the surge of unaccompanied children illegally crossing the southern border, including where the unaccompanied minors are being sheltered and the circumstances under which some are set free inside the U.S.
Lawmakers on Capitol Hill say the lack of information has handicapped their push to pass legislation to gain a handle on the surge — a debate taking place this week in both chambers.
“We’re getting almost no information, and there is all kinds of conflicting information,” said Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican, who for months has been hounding the administration for answers about where unaccompanied minors, who crossed the border without their parents, are detained and released.
The Department of Health and Human Services, which is bound by law to house and care for unaccompanied children and teens from Central America, rebuffed repeated inquires from The Washington Times about the location of shelters where many of the children are detained.
“We do not identify the approximately 100 regular/permanent Unaccompanied Alien Children program shelters for the safety and security of minors and staff at the facilities,” Kenneth Wolfe, deputy director of communication for HHS' Administration for Children and Families, said in an email. ...

Border surge puts Obama legacy on immigration at stake - “This is what amnesty looks like. This chaos on the border is the direct and predictable consequence of amnesty,” she [Rosemary Jenks, NumbersUSA] said. “I don’t think the politicians are there yet, but I do think they are beginning to see, ‘Hey, wait a minute, actions have consequences.’”
Border surge puts Obama legacy on immigration at stake
After two years of playing offense, immigrant rights groups suddenly and unexpectedly find themselves playing political defense, pushing back against proposals to speed up deportations of people surging across the border illegally even while advocates plead with the White House to take politically risky executive action to halt deportations in the interior.
The advocates say they have “an audience of one” — President Obama, who for his career in Washington, stretching back to his days as a senator, has tantalized them with promises of action and even delivered some victories, but at times has seemed a reluctant partner.
Right now his legacy is at stake and he has the opportunity to redefine what it means to be President Obama,” said Lorella Praeli, policy director for United We Dream, an advocacy group that pressured Mr. Obama two years ago to grant tentative legal status to illegal immigrant young adults and now wants that policy expanded to include most illegal immigrant parents
Mr. Obama was initially cool to the idea of halting more deportations, denying he had the legal authority.
But under intense pressure by advocates and shamed by the movement’s leaders who dubbed him “deporter in chief,” Mr. Obama warmed to the plan and even set deadlines for himself to act.
Then came the border surge, with tens of thousands of unaccompanied children and families from Central America trying to cross into the U.S. and counting on immigration authorities to release them so they could gain a foothold in the interior of the country.
Advocates argue that the two issues are separate, but many Americans see them as the same and have reacted negatively.
A majority a CNN/ORC International poll last week said the most important thing in the immigration debate is to secure the border. That was a reversal from February, when a majority said legalizing illegal immigrants was more important than border security. ...
The only reason for the temporary illusion that a majority of Americans were not for border enforcement first was that pollster-advocates carefully worded their questions so that amnesty was called 'path to,' and their stressing that 'comprehensive immigration reform' would require strict border enforcement, something that is always dishonestly promised to American citizens by their open-borders overlords before every amnesty--but which never ever happens.

Dalton, Georgia: Already Here - "In some cases, they cannot count to 10,” Woodason said. “They can’t turn on a computer. They've never even seen a computer. Also, they, in most cases, cannot speak English or Spanish.”
Border crisis brings 30 unaccompanied youths to Dalton schools
The challenges presented by an influx of unaccompanied children and youths from Central America streaming across the southern border into the United States have reached Dalton.
Approximately 30 unaccompanied minors were admitted into the Dalton Public Schools district during the last school year, Superintendent Jim Hawkins said on Thursday. It is not known whether more are coming with a new school year approaching.
Nabbed at the border while trying to cross into the country, the youths were sent to Dalton by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services while they wait for a date with a federal immigration judge. In the meantime, the youths are required, by law, to be admitted into a local school system. The immunizations necessary for enrollment, and all pertinent paperwork, were provided to the youths during their time in facilities in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. ...
Kevin MacDonald: Immigration gets on the public radar - "As Refugee/Resettlement Watch points out in an article on a Somali family that quickly grew to 12 children, it starts with stealth and ends with anger."
Immigration gets on the public radar
Somali family in Springfield, MA
An important aspect of immigration has been that for the most part it has occurred under the radar. Despite importing over a million mainly poor people every year and all that implies in terms of need for housing, infrastructure, welfare benefits, and medical care, immigration and refugee policy in the US is on auto-pilot, with the pro-immigration forces steadily removing every obstacle. Most White Americans do not experience it first hand and have no idea about the elaborate infrastructure that the pro-immigration forces have erected. ...
