I am neither a historian, decent author or a journalist and the chances are, unless there is a link or reference to somewhere else, the perpetrator is your's truly-Renaud Sarda.
I created this blog as a focal point, to arm friends and people with arguments and facts that they could perhaps use to counter the anti- Israel propaganda, biased media and Israel boycott campaign.
I am a Zionist and a proud Sephardi Jew who will fly the Israeli flag, and defend whatever Israel does.

Events are being held across Scotland to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.
In Edinburgh the First Minister will be speaking at the Scottish National Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration event at Craigroyston Community High School. The event will also feature pupils from the school, Rabbi Awraham Soetendorp from The Hague as well as young people from the Scottish Gypsy/travellers community.
Meanwhile, in Ayr, schools in South Ayrshire are marking the occasion by displaying their work at an exhibition at the town hall and in the Stirling area. Libraries will also be displaying reading material related to the event.
In Aberdeen pupils of St Machar Academy will hear the testimonial of Holocaust survivor Harry Bibring, while Paisley Museum is mounting an exhibition in collaboration with the Education and Cultural Centre of the Jewish Museum in Prague.
Holocaust Memorial Day has been marked in the UK since 2001, and commemorates the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp by the Red Army in 1945 in the closing stages of the Second World War.
The event is about remembering the victims and those who suffered as a result of the Holocaust and Nazi persecution, as well as those affected by subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and the ongoing situation in Darfur.
