By Debbie Schlussel


JEWISH SOLDIERS GIVE UP HOLIDAY FURLOUGHS, CAMP FORREST, TENN. – Thousands of Officers and Enlisted Men of the Jewish Faith Have Given Up Their Holiday Furlough This Year In Order to Make it Possible for the Maximum Number of Their Christian Fellow Soldiers to Be Home With Their Families on Christmas. Here Two of the Christian Soldiers Thank Their Jewish Buddies for Giving Up Their Furloughs. Left to Right: Sergeant Philip Gale, Corporal H.E. Taylor, Both of Springfield, IL, and Private George Cooper and Sergeant Walter Romanchik, Both of Chicago, December 23, 1941

I wish all of my readers and friends a Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah. Today is the first time in nearly 40 years (1978) that Christmas Day and the first day of Chanukah coincide, and it’s a cool thing. Above is a photo of Jewish-American U.S. Army soldiers during World War II, giving up their furlough days and remaining on duty so that their Christian counterparts could go home and celebrate Christmas.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – Just Okay (All the Bad Guys Are White; Heroes All Minorities)

By Debbie Schlussel

I saw the new Star Wars prequel, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” yesterday morning, under heavy security and lock and key. But it ain’t all that. The movie–which debuts in theaters Friday (early screenings Thursday night)–was just okay. Plus, I couldn’t help but notice a stark casting decision: all the evil Empire leaders are old White men, and all the rebel leaders and heroes are minorities (including a whiny Muslim dude) and a perpetually-miserable chick.

He was too busy setting up sweetheart business deals for his future and pimping faulty products on the U.S. Armed Forcs. Mattis has Marine blood on his hands, and that alone should disqualify him for the job as Donald Trump’s Defense Secretary. Read the rest of this entry »
