  1. The world has become an olum hufush. Making the animals more important then humans. Rashi at the end of parshas braishis asks why the animals died in the mabel. Rashi answers animals were made for people no people no need for the animals.

  2. Good move!

    The liberals use fake excuses to block oil and gas production..

    They have lost all their ne’emonis

  3. The headline does not match the article, and is so misleading and dishonest it could have been written by a Democrat. The article does not say he is removing protections from”endangered” species, but from “threatened” species.

    In any case, why quote the UN? According to them, zionism is the equivlent of nazi-ism.
