 By Arnold Ahlert Full Story

On Thursday, April 23rd, courage, contempt and cowardice collided during a pro-Israel campus event called "iFest" that took place at the University of California, Irvine (UCI). In the middle of the festivities, the president of the student group Anteaters for Israel (AFI), which organized the three-day event, was berated and brought to tears by the president of the Jewish Federation of Orange County (JFOC), who was among the iFest attendees.

Israel's economy defies common sense
 By Yoram Ettinger Full Story

Irrespective of a cynical and gullible "elite" media, independent of diplomatic pressure, political correctness and conventional wisdom, in defiance of the global economic slowdown, in the face of war and terrorism, and despite ill-advised threats of boycott, divestment and sanctions -- but, due to principle-driven tenacity, inherent optimism, human capital/brain power, creativity, cutting edge ingenuity and breakthrough, game-changing innovations -- Israel's economy is expanding beyond expectations, reacting constructively to pressures/challenges, and developing unique commercial and security niches in response to local and global needs.

You’re Already Out of Time to Read the Income Tax Act Before Filing Deadline: CTF
 By Canadian Taxpayers Federation   --Canada

The Harper government has added 739 pages - over 210,000 - since taking office in 2006

OTTAWA, ON: The Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) is reminding Canadians that while they may have received an extension on filing their taxes this year, with only about 36 hours remaining to Tuesday’s midnight deadline, it’s already too late to try and read the federal Income Tax Act. That’s because it’s 3,314 page long – that’s 1,047,115 words – and would take the average reader more than 58 hours to read (not that many would want to).
“There is no doubt that our tax system has become even more complex under this government,” said CTF Federal Director Aaron Wudrick. “This is particularly unfortunate given the many ways they could have instead cut taxes simply and fairly – for virtually all Canadians.”
