Ze’ev, of Israel Perspectives, has tagged me to do the latest Meme, What’s On Your I-Pod? that is making it’s way around the Jewish Blogsphere. However, this Meme has morphed. While it initially started off being a Meme about what 15 songs are on your I-Pod – and since Ze’ev didn’t have an I-Pod, he morphed the Meme to be what 15 books are you reading, have recently read or would reccommend.
Now the challenge for me is I don’t read books too often being a news junkie instead and I prefer to surf the web and visit sites like Front Page, Drudge Report, Power Line, Michelle Malkin, Discover the Network, World Net Daily, Israel Daily Alert, Jihad Watch and Coast to Coast AM. Wait, I forgot – I also flip through magazine articles while sitting in patient waiting rooms and I have a few dozen references I refer to often. Well, instead of blathering on about how I don’t read, I will list what I do read, have read, have flipped through, have ear-marked, have picked up but haven’t finished and one audio-tape title. Are audio-tape titles allowed? Even if they are not, I now enable them to be.
Smooth’s Morphed Meme List
1. From Time Immemorial: The Origins of the Arab-Jewish Conflict over Palestine by Joan Peters. Joan Peters book was published in 1984 and was a best-seller. The book blew away most of the Middle East myths that to this day come out of the mainstream media, the United Nations, the Arabian nation, and Europe; these same mythologies are still shaping international public policy and the so-called “peace process.” I saw Joan Peters interviewed on The Zola Levitt Show and she stated that when she first went to Israel to research this book, she was pro-palestinian. Then she learned the truth and is now pro-Israel. Click here and here to watch a fascinating interview with Joan Peters and Zola Levitt.
2. Men in Black – How the Supreme Court is Destroying America by Mark Levin. If you ever wondered why Americans are so liberal, it’s because the black-robed justices of the Supreme Court subvert democracy in favor of their own liberal agenda. Think Terri Schiavo. Think Roe vs. Wade.
3. The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown – audio tape. I love imagery. I love symbols, codes, cryptology, puzzles, emblems, signs and secrets. This book has it all and I am up to tape #5.
4. Entebbe – A Defining Moment in the War on Terrorism by Iddo Netanyahu. Thos who guard freedom must be very courageous to preserve for future generations the truth that good is stronger than evil. Think 9/11 and how this country is ashamed that we are fighting for freedoms that millions of Muslims don’t want us to have.
5. Eye to Eye – Facing the Consequences of Diving Israel by William Koenig. I haven’t read this book yet but all of the major catastrophes in U.S. history transpired on the very same day or within 24 hours of US President’s Bush, Clinton and Bush applying pressure on Israel to give up land for false promises of peace and security. That’s what this book is about.
6. Muhammad’s Monsters – A Comprehensive Guide to Radical Islam for Western Audiences edited by David Bukay. Obvious.
7. Myths and Facts – A Guide to the Arab-Israeli Conflict by Mitchell Bard. Whoever can spell Israel is ordered to get this book, read it, memorize it, and stand with us against those who are against Israel.
Oy, I’m getting tired. I have only 7 titles listed. Do I have to do 15? Do I really? Ok, maybe I’ll do more at another time. I’m not tagging anyone right now but if you want to be tagged let me know and I’ll update this entry.
