Americans can learn a lot about how to handle today’s challenges by looking at how Israel has handled theirs throughout history. They haven’t done everything perfectly, but they’ve stayed true to their core values, including the need for a strong, traditional family to be the core of their existence.
We recently had the honor of sitting down with David Rubin. He has lived in both the United States and Israel and has a unique perspective on the ways both countries can learn from the lessons of the other. He joined JD on the latest episode of NOQ Report.
Rubin, former Mayor of Shiloh Israel, is the author of seven books including his latest, Confronting Radicals: What America Can Learn From Israel. Rubin is the founder and president of Shiloh Israel Children’s Fund, established after he and his then three-year-old son were wounded in a terror attack. He can also be found on his website.
One of the most important pieces of advice he gave is to fight the rhetoric coming from Black Lives Matter and other radical leftist groups as they continue to attack the traditional family structure. The organization recently scrubbed calls to abolish the “nuclear family” so as not to draw so much heat for their Neo-Marxist ideology. The irony is that Black lives, which they claim to cherish, are far better protected by those who engage in proper family structures. The absence of fathers in African-American households has been widely cited as one of the reasons for increase violence and criminal activity.
Mr. Rubin also gave his perspectives on the Israeli elections. Unlike the U.S. elections in which the two sides often fight without compromise, the Israeli election structure demands coalitions to be formed between multiple political parties in order to create their parliamentary government. At least 61 of the 120 Knesset Members need to agree on a Prime Minister in order to form a government. If they cannot, as has been the case for four elections, then a new election comes a few months later.
The sabotage of Iran’s largest nuclear facility this week was also a hot topic for Rubin to discuss. He said the need to keep a nuclear Iran from becoming a reality is an existential issue for Israel. They are not part of the so-called “Iran Nuclear Deal” and therefore are not required to allow Iran to advance their nuclear ambitions.
As long as we forget the lessons taught in the Bible and throughout history about the importance of the traditional family structure, we will never be able to overcome the false narrative pushed forth by Black Lives Matter.
‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report has appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. One of our YouTube accounts was banned and another has been suspended. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancelation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects. These questions are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting cancelled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are on track to be short by about $5300 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
