This is what we are fighting on Facebook today. Please get involved (by clicking on Anna’s “going”) and SHSRE, SHARE, SHARE and get your friends to click as well. We need to help ourselves if we are to receive help. I don’t think Zuckerberg, (despite his Jewish background) gets how awful this is and how damaging allowing it is.. I don’t know why he doesn’t, but I hope we don’t et sidetracked in our conversation about this. Instead, I hope we can think of additional strategies to deal with the problem itself..

I’m reposting these pics into one post so it’s easier for you to share. I think it’s difficult for people to believe that this is allowed on FB since Mark Zuckerberg is Jewish. Nevertheless, as you all know, it is, and we need to get that sad fact out! If you have any other photos/pages that you have reported but are still up, please post them here and I will update this collection when needed.Also, if you see anti-Semitic comments, please take a screen shot and post here (just look for a Hate Israel page and you’ll find plenty).

Thanks! Keep up the good work!

Why they don’t want you to know Arabic


Education Minister Shay Piron doesn’t want school kids to learn Arabic. Of course, he doesn’t say this out loud, and if he is asked about it, not only would he not deny it, but he would also pratter on about how important it is to speak Arabic and how learning the language would serve as a cultural bridge and blah, blah, blah, just like the minister knows how to do.

In practice, though, he doesn’t want us to learn Arabic. He wants Arabic studies to last no longer than three years so that he could slash the budgets allocated to teaching the language.

Could this reform be part of the new policy introduced recently by the Education Ministry, which seems to be encouraging kids towards ignorance while teaching them a whole lot of nothing? At the same time, it is worth wondering whether there is anything special about learning Arabic.

It appears that there is. Whoever knows Arabic is likely to listen to Arab news media, surf Palestinian websites, and read Arabic newspapers. Then they are likely to discover the truth: the other side is awash with such a virulent stream of anti-Semitic racism that all talk of peace here is delusional.

The party to which the education minister belongs is entrenched firmly in what is inexplicably referred to as “the peace camp.” Knowing the Arabic language is anathema to this camp. The more Arab-language speakers there are, the less supporters.

Thus spake Abu Mazen

“The woman known as ‘the Maiden of Ludmir,’ Hannah Rachel Verbermacher, who became famous because of her outstanding studiousness and her becoming the only female rebbe in the history of the Hasidic movement, was, of course, a Palestinian.”

(Mahmoud Abbas, a doctor in history, from his book “How the Palestinians Created the World”)

Segmenting society

Polls in Israel consistently show that most Mizrahi Jews are on the Right side of the political spectrum, while a large chunk of Ashkenazim lean toward the Left. There are sociologists who have nurtured ridiculous theories in order to explain this state of affairs. The only thing they overlook is the most basic fact: a large chunk of Mizrahim speak Arabic.

Now, perhaps, just perhaps, that this is what lies beneath one of John Kerry’s bluffs, the one that says that a peace deal with the Palestinians would include monetary compensation for Jews kicked out of Muslim countries.

This is a bold-faced lie, and Kerry knows it. The agreement on which he is working, if it is ever signed, will be between Israel and the Palestinians. It won’t be with Iraq. It won’t be with Egypt. it won’t be with Syria or with Yemen. They won’t be party to the agreement, and they won’t pay billions. This conflict isn’t theirs.

Let us assume for a moment that they persuaded Syria to pay compensation. Where would the money come from? From hemorrhaging Yemen? An Iraq in ruins? Will it come from Egypt, where tens of millions of their citizens don’t know from where they’re going to get their next dry slice of bread?

Kerry knows that in the best case scenario, it’s a media fabrication for purposes of spin. In the worst case scenario, it’s a bluff. So why did he say it? Here’s a wild guess, which is certainly not true but in any case is worth mentioning just so that it’s clear what didn’t happen.

One day, one of Kerry’s advisers walked into his room and explained to him how Israeli society was structured and which of our various groupings are on the political right. “Jews love money. Should we try to buy them?” he asked one of his aides.

Again, we should emphasize that it is inconceivable for this to be a motivating factor in creating this compensation bluff.

Abu Mazen strikes again

“Three-thousand years prior to the Israelis, the Palestinians had already given the world the Patrick Kim pulp fiction series of books and they had documented the first-ever prescription for a congealed leg.”

(Abu Mazen, from his book “The Dawn of Humanity”)

Questions that will never be asked

Achinoam Nini, if you refuse to go on stage alongside a person who can’t stand homosexuals, then how is it that you performed in front of the pope?

Yisrael Shiran and Esti Brand, two individuals who were fired from the Education Ministry because of harboring right-wing views, will you agree to have your photo taken for the front-page of Haaretz and Yedioth Ahronoth?

Dear Sudanese migrant, if Israel is such a racist country, why are you fighting to stay here?

John Kerry, could you ask Mr. Obama what he would think about a proposal that would ban blacks from living in eastern Washington, DC? What about Jews in east Jerusalem?

Dear justice minister, as part of the campaign pushed by your ministry against racism and discrimination, will you also demand that Jews be permitted to pray on Temple Mount?

A reminder from Abu Mazen

“The Palestinian immigrants drained the swamps by planting eucalyptus trees. In short time, clashes erupted between the Palestinian pioneers and the clerks of Hebron.”

(Abu Mazen, from his book, “The Palestinian Pioneers”)

Trouble at home

On the order of the grand rebbe of Satmar, this Hassidic dynasty has begun a campaign against the Whatsapp application. They have a catchy slogan for their campaign: Press 1 for destroying the house.

It’s interesting to note that until now I was certain that Ariel Sharon destroyed more houses.

Just a minute, Abu Mazen is talking

“The Palestinians sat alone in the dark for at least 1800 years before the Poles.”

(Abu Mazen, from his book, “The Palestinians in the Krakow Ghetto”)

On the other hand

A photographer from another newspaper told me that Achinoam Nini asked him one time not to photograph her from the left, but to only get her right side. That’s because her left is the less photogenic side.

By chance, Achinoam Nini showed off her left side this week. She’s right. It really doesn’t look all that great.

Abu Mazen is just getting started

“Even Mordechai the Jew, Rabbi Shalom Shabazi, Hershele Ostropoler, and The Flying Matchmaker were all Palestinians.”

(Dr. Abu Mazen, from his book, “Gideon Levy Reveals”)

What do they want?

Last year, two ultra-Orthodox members of Knesset threatened that if this “wicked government” continued in its ways, they will not agree to accept budgets from the state. This week, the High Court of Justice took them up on their offer. What exactly is wrong with this?

One more

“The Palestinians arrived on the scene 2,000 years before the Palestinians.”

(Abu Mazen, from his book, “Conversations with Ilan Lukach”)

Stephen Darori … developer of the Threshold Technology Curve Model


Stephen Darori … developer of the Threshold Technology Curve Model

Threshold Technology Curve Model for start ups and investors was developed for a post graduate degree at the LSE by Stephen Darori. Over 6000 startups currently use this model free of charge despite 12 registered patents and exponentially many more from the PCT patent process started in 2010 . The patents were the second batch registered after eBay’s on line auction patents registered in terms of the Supreme Court Case Bilski versus Kappos . The Model has in the last 14 years resulted in over 600 exits.

Stephen Darori actively works with new entrepreneurs to develop their business plans and marketing strategy and raises early stage funding matched more funding from his own resources.

What follows is a Recommendation Stephen Darori received on Linkedin that partly describes the Model ….two key elements missing are that the model calls for the earliest possible commercialization of a technology and the use of partners to change the direction of a technologies development if necessary…. equally ….while not always … early stage finance is placed in an escrow account and released per cash budgets submitted by the founding entrepreneurs … the escrow account legal is owned by the start up but the process agreed to by most founders disciplines founders and introduces controls that impress investors when new rounds of finance are required …. the model also advocated that founders with technical skills remain in R & D until the start up exits … at the right time a start up will hire an experience “adult” CEO and as it goes global will establish a Marketing Team on the East Coast of the US using a surplus of excellent IVY and McKinsley & Co trained Marketing Specialists

” Stephen Darori has a wide and rich experience in turning new technologies into viable start ups . He provide leadership and value for preseed and seed stage start up by leveraging his analytical, management, and organizational skills and and strategic planning but most of all his Threshold Curve Model which addresses directly what VC’s want to see in Business and Marketing plans and especially R & D Strategy and Plans . The Model among other things calls for the early commercialization of the technology with a revenue flow and outsourcing the entire Management and Site Services function with Marketing overlapping into R & D initially .The model also recommends that the Entrepreneurs remain in R & D and when the time is right appoint experienced Management ( CEO , Marketing Manager etc). This strategy proved exceptionally well with the recent Waze Exit to Google and is used currently by many other companies that could in the foreseeable future reach an exit. It is also a viewed very positively by early investors. Stephen has assisted many 100’s of young entrepreneurs ( often straight out of college) to turn their new technologies into a marketable business model and raise Angel, Seed and even first round finance He is quick to learn, understand and gain expertise in new technologies and variations of existing ones.. His business models and development plans and especially his marketing plans for new technologies and even variations of existing technologies are often unexpected and ” out of the box” thinking. With all Business and Marketing plans , Stephen includes Benchmarks  and a Balance Scoreboard  that helps companies execute strategy and ensure the correct plans are in place to deliver the strategies  He is a great and patient mentor to young entrepreneurs both in Israel and the UK,”

How To Get Half Of A Wharton Education For Free


How To Get Half Of A Wharton Education For Free

wharton university of pennsylvania graduation

This week, Wharton announced that it would be the first business school to offer much of the substantive core of its MBA program online for free. If you have a whole lot of time on your hands, you can get a large hunk of the education that MBA students pick up, and instead of paying six figures, you’ll pay nothing.

In addition to the five electives already offered through the Coursera platform, Wharton is offering what it’s calling the “Foundation” series, made up of introductory courses in financial accounting, operations management, marketing, and corporate finance, taught by some of its best-known and most senior professors.

The courses are made up of a series of pre-recorded lectures and interactive exercises. They range in length from six to 10 weeks, and take an estimated five to eight hours a week each. Students can already enroll in the accounting course, and the other three start in staggered two-week intervals. The next to begin will be operations management on September 30th.

Don Huesman, the managing director of Wharton’s innovation group, told Bloomberg Businessweek that those four courses alone would replicate much of what a first-year student learns. Wharton students who actually make it through the school’s rigorous admissions process are required to take nine core courses, four of which are now available online, and six electives.

The online versions replicate the content of the courses so well that some professors are asking students to watch the Massively Open Online Course (MOOC) versions of the lectures ahead of time so the in-class time can focus on discussion.

Students can simply watch the courses casually without additional work, but there are integrated quizzes, readings, homework assignments, and final exams for the more committed. Coursera also gives the option of paying $49 to enroll in a “signature track,” which give students a verifiable online certificate for completing the course should they meet the course’s standards.

Enrolling in the free track takes just a name, an email, a password, and agreeing to Coursera’s honor code. Someone looking to take their first MOOC might want to consider the marketing course. It’s one of the less time intensive classes, and is team taught by the three of Wharton’s top marketing professors, from a department ranked as one of the world’s best.

After signing up for the accounting course, I immediately got access to the first week’s videos, lecture slides, homework, and a forum where students discuss the course and ask questions.

Required core courses for a Wharton MBA that are missing from Coursera include an introductory macroeconomics course and regression analysis, a statistics course for future managers. But an enterprising student could fill that skills gap with MIT’s highly regarded and popular introductory microeconomics course and Coursera’s data analysis course from Johns Hopkins.

You’d still be missing the networking opportunities, career services support, alumni network, and the prestige of the degree, but a dedicated student can pick up a lot of the practical skills a business requires.

Why is Wharton giving this away? While students get access to high-quality education, Wharton gets to present its best face to hundreds of thousands of people that only vaguely know it. They’ve already reached more people with the five existing courses than the school has educated in more than a century of existence.

You can’t earn Wharton credit by taking the free courses, but a future student could potentially use them to test out of the core classes and spend more time on advanced and career-specific studies, according to Huesman.

The issue that providers of online courses and the schools that provide the content face is how to get employers to appreciate the effort people put into these courses, and verify that students have put in the work in a rigorous way.

Though there are already highly successful online degree-granting programs, they’re far less open, more expensive, and require more of a time commitment, which excludes many people. Hundreds of thousands of people have taken Wharton’s online courses, and thousands more will take these new offerings, but it’s hard to prove to a potential employer that you’ve picked up Wharton-caliber skills from them.

The battle for cloud market share is just beginning


The battle for cloud market share is just beginning

Cloud market will be dominated by “mega-vendors” Amazon, Microsoft, Google and VMware, researcher predicts


If you think the uber-competitive cloud computing market is hot right now, you haven’t seen anything yet.

That’s the prediction from one of the cloud industry’s leading pundits. Lydia Leong tracks the cloud market for Gartner and recently authored the IaaS Magic Quadrant, in which she found that Amazon Web Services is by far the market-share leader, with five times the amount of use than all its other competitors. That caused some in the industry, like Bernard Golden, director of enterprise solutions at Dell’s Enstratius, to ask, “why hasn’t a credible competitor emerged to challenge AWS??”

[THE CHALLENGERS: 10 Challengers who could take on Amazon in the cloud]

In a post on her personal blog, Leong responded:

“I think there’s a critical shift happening in the market right now. Three very dangerous competitors are just now entering the market — Microsoft, Google, and VMware. I think the real war for market share is just beginning.

Amazon got a head start on all the competitors and then built up a massive engineering team to quickly develop software to create differentiating features in its cloud. It has focused on building products and services that customers will actually use, which has allowed the company to keep its lead in the cloud market.

But while AWS has a strong lead, these three other vendors (Microsoft, Google and VMware) are catching up. Each have strong brand name presence to launch a market challenge to AWS, Leong notes. Microsoft has the cash and standing within the enterprise market to compete in the cloud, but its biggest strength, which is offering customers products that are all within the Microsoft ecosystem, could also be its greatest downfall. Google has the engineering talent to out-innovate anyone in the tech market, Leong notes, but it will struggle to position itself as a true enterprise-company (a stigma AWS has been fighting as well). VMware, meanwhile, has a strong hybrid cloud play and respect in the enterprise market, but has a tough balancing act to play with its service provider partners.

“If I were to place my bets, it would be on those four at the top of market share, five years from now,” Leong wrote. “They know that this is a software business. They know that innovative capabilities are vitally necessary. And they know that this has turned into a market fixated on developer productivity and business benefits. At least for now, that view is dominating the actual spending in this market.”

When Entrepreneurs Sacrifice Too Much


When Entrepreneurs Sacrifice Too Much

How much would you give up to start a company? A car? Your own apartment or house? Heat? From prized possessions like a classic motorcycle to priceless things like time with friends and family, it’s clear that many entrepreneurs are willing to make extreme sacrifices.For these intrepid bootstrappers, however, these entrepreneurial sacrifices can also affect family members.

As with many companies founded by passionate entrepreneurs, Stonyfield Farm’s road to becoming one of the top U.S. sellers of organic yogurt was paved with personal sacrifices—in this case, it included giving up some creature comforts and adopting a spartan lifestyle, such as living in a wood-heated New Hampshire farmhouse (pictured above).

The wife of Stonyfield Farm co-founder Gary Hirshberg, Meg Hirshberg drew on these early experiences when writing “For Better or For Work: A Survival Guide for Entrepreneurs and Their Families.”

When reflecting on aspects of their 27-year marriage, Meg Hirshberg describes her journey as the passenger along for the ride: “The entrepreneur is the driver; the spouse, having no control, sways nauseatingly with all the curves the business takes. With respect to the business, the spouse inevitably confronts the question: ‘Are you in or are you out?‘ That question is usually not verbalized but it hangs in the air. And if the spouse isn’t in, the relationship will suffer.”

Meg Hirshberg details some of the sacrifices that she made along the way:

LINKEDIN: It took nine years for Stonyfield Farm to have a profitable year. As you look back on those nine years, what were some of the biggest sacrifices that you made?

MEG HIRSHBERG: I’d have to say we didn’t look at it as a sacrifice, but rather as a set of choices we were presented with. Entrepreneurs do whatever it takes to try to make the business work. In our case, we lived in a pretty primitive environment—a freezing wood-heated farmhouse—and we shared the space with the business so we had no privacy. Of course we would have preferred our own home, but we couldn’t afford it, and we had to stay near the yogurt factory. Virtually all startups involve the sacrifice of financial security (and of free time), but in the case of home-based businesses like ours, you also sacrifice privacy.

The Hirshberg Family, 2009

LINKEDIN: Sacrificing time with family and friends often comes up as one of the bigger things that entrepreneurs give up. What would you say to someone who might resent the frequent absences (both emotional and physical) of the entrepreneur? Any tips on what you or Gary would have done differently in hindsight?

MEG HIRSHBERG: The extreme demands on the entrepreneur can make the spouse feel ignored, neglected, and low on the priority list. The entrepreneur needs to show the spouse that s/he is important. It really doesn’t take much—often it comes down to genuinely inquiring about the spouse’s day (since businesses can suck up all the conversational oxygen) or taking a little tech-free time with the spouse on a regular basis. Even a walk down the block (sans smartphone) can make the couple feel connected.

As with most startups, the business demanded that Gary be absent a lot (he was on the road seeing buyers, etc…) But on top of this, he also had a lot of volunteer commitments. I think that’s one thing he would have done differently—pared down on any outside commitments that were not essential to the business, at least during the crazy startup years.

LINKEDIN: Any other lessons you’d like to pass along?

MEG HIRSHBERG: The most important thing for couples living the startup life is to make every effort to communicate and stay in touch. That’s of course true of any couple, but a business can expand relationship fault lines into yawning chasms.

Reply to the Troll Internet Blog losersonlinkedin Stephen Darori AKA Stephen Drus

An absurd situation … I did not write any of the incredibly long and incomprehensible gmails on which theInternet Troll MDraeper has “based” his Blog … one of two in his blogspot . Google Inc have received legal representation to suppress the Blogs and have done so with the second of this troll’s blogs but left the longer and more ridiculous blog. Google In are in the most ideal position to access all my gmail received and sent since the account was opened when gmail was still at Beta and determine whether or not the lengthy correspondence took place often in the early hours of the morning but according to Google inc they are overwhelmed with 10 -12 million new requests per week to remove content from Google Inc’s properties which increase almost weekly with new purchases. Not really relevant but an interesting statistic …according to an xoogler ( exGoogler) on Quora … in every Google Chrome Research , over 8% of search results that are generated never before have been Googled by its Chrome Browser and contrary to te often cited illusion , the Google Crawler does not take 3 days to search the Internet … it does so now instantaneously ( technology and microprocessors have developed far faster than exponentially) as has Google Chrome’s Search algorithm.
The Internet is the largest experiment involving anarchy in history and the largest ungoverned space without any real legal recourse.It is worth noting that the term “troll” is one of the most frequently cited insults in the online environment. It is often used to brand, silence or scapegoat a member with a dissenting or outright false impression. MDraeper has written a malicious false blog devoid of any fact or truth using his talent ( well some talent) as a South African Johannesburg based movie script writer. It would appear that the real person behind the MDraeper pseudonym had his application for finance of a movie turned down. He has deleted and reposted this Blog a number of times since 2009.
Unmoderated or poorly moderated environments like Blospots are not only more susceptible to malicious or damaging trolls, they are also more likely to create the conditions that invite them. This is because the members themselves have very little in the way of actual power. With few other options at their disposal they will often resort to intimidation tactics and personal attack with the hope of verbally overpowering the offender. If the offender is a true troll, this will only reinforce the troll’s sense of purpose, inflames his/her ire, and let him or her know who the target is.Blogspot is a Google Incasset however every week Google Inc according to Quora they get 6-8 million complaints and even employing 50 thousand lawyers will not clear the backlog in the next century.
1. “MDraeper” ( Mike Draeper) is fictitious and spurious. .MDraeper is a Internet Troll who has posted an inflammatory, provocative and intrusive harassment Blog about Stephen Darori . A Google search for “MDraeper” ( and /or Mike Draeper)produces no results except for this Blog with one entry dating from 2009 and a a shorter second from 2012. The Blog from 2009 was deleted and reposted in 2012. MDraeper appears to be a an exceedingly imaginative South African movie script writer with an attribute for writing fiction with the typical impunity of a bogus internet troll. It probably is not a good reflection of his true writing skills or ability to spell .

2.Stephen Darori did not have a PhD from Wits University or any other degree from that University. He never actually set foot on the latter University Campus. In 2009 “Helpmekaar” did not have a website, let alone a Wikipedia Article about it. It is an expensive private academically very successful Afrikaans High School. Quite obviously the basis for one of Draeper’s incorrect assertions would not exist had their website existed in 2009.

3.Stephen Darori gmail account has has no record of any correspondence with the fallacious and deleterious troll MDraeper dating back to 2009 ( on which this entire Blog has been contrived). This Blog was deleted by MDraeper and reposted in 2012. The Gmails dating back to 2009 are the connived creations of MDraeper . There is no basis of truth in any of the correspondence related to Stephen Darori. It was never Stephen Darori’s style or nature to write long, rambling, time consuming emails that have little basis of fact. “AK European Investments” was the nickname given to a very discrete Investment Group ( he was once associated with) that never ever invested in movies or films.

4. Stephen Darori was not a serial scammer. Neither was he a criminal and was never ever subjected to any form of questioning , in any country , regarding any on line presence he may have had , by any law biding body. Stephen Darori valued his privacy and could be relied on for discretion and honesty.
