Keeping Cool Blog Carnival, Summer 5779, 2019

Forecast is for scorching hot weather today, so get comfortable and stay in the shade, indoors or out.

There's always something to read on the internet. No, not the news, just blogs, Jewish/Israeli ones. They're independent, unique, quirky. If you have any for me to add to my blog rolls, please let me know in the comments here. You can read them at home, breaks at work, eating or lazing by the pool, on your computer, phone, tablet and probably even a smart television, so relax and enjoy this selection of of recommended blog posts.



As is my practice, I'm just going to list titles of articles aka blog posts to whet your curiosity. Enjoy, comment and share.  I'd love your opinions, so don't be shy. Just a reminder, I'm not responsible for the content of the individual articles.

Sorry but it's not a blog

We indeed have scorching hot weather today.

However, I prefer the heat over the cold,
because the cold is accompanied by
snow and ice that make walking difficult,
even dangerous.

I thank-and-praise the All-Mighty and Eternal
G*D-OF-ISRAEL for every long-and-hot summer days.

Lord Ian Livingston of England said:

“Whilst the Israeli Defense Forces are not
perfect, the obsession of focusing on them
despite being the most moral and professional
army in the Middle East is very strange.”

“For over two decades, Qatar has been
fostering and advancing nearly every
terrorist organization that has murdered
Americans. It praised Osama bin Laden,
and after him Ayman Al-Zawahiri [leader of
Al-Qaeda after Osama bin Laden], to the skies.”

Two months before 9/11, on Qatar’s
state-run Al-Jazeera TV, bin Laden
was lionized in a show dedicated to him.

He was called “the No. 1 Arab and Islamic hero”
and “the conscience of the Arab and Islamic world.”

The program host underlined that as
“the nation thirsts deeply for
someone who will confront America...
not with words and slogans,”
and said that bin Laden was
“the right man for this important role.”

And indeed he was.

...Qatar cultivates anti-Semitism,
even allowing Muslim Brotherhood
spiritual leader Yusuf Al-Qaradawi,
hosted and protected for decades by Qatar,
to call on its airwaves for a
NEW HOLOCAUST to be carried out
at the hands of the Muslims.”

Summer is better than winter for me too, though it has little to do with this post.
