For centuries, elders have been warning of the impending decay of Jewish culture. Some claimed that this would occur as religion and halakha were gradually eschewed. Others prophesied that the demise would befall us as capitalism entrenched its tentacular stranglehold over society. But little did these wise men know that the real decline would come … Continued

Guess who’s Feuerbach? Yes it’s me. Treasured comrades, it’s been a difficult few weeks. The end to our year is drenched in socialist sorrow. The independence of the Liberated People’s Socio-Democratic Republic of Scotland has been thwarted, the 4th (or is it 5th?) bombing of Iraq has begun, the reactionary stooges that call themselves the FijiFirst … Continued
For decades, CST has been the only source for private muscle at Jewish events. But now there’s a new start-up on the block.

He enjoys the simple things in life, like cocktails, walks on the beach, and Jacques Derrida. **** Candles. Wine bar. You ask: What’s your ideal … Continued

Research by Jewdas into these documents has shown that the CIA struggled to keep up with the freedom fighter’s activities, since she has operated under so many different aliases, including Allah, Adonai, Shekhinah, Brahman, and Toots.
