The Conceptual Penis as a Social Construct: A Sokal-Style Hoax on Gender Studies

 There is a big problem in what passes for science these days  That problem is no real, verifiable science and too much agenda. Scientism reigns supreme
  • excessive belief in the power of scientific knowledge and techniques.


    Hoaxing Gender Studies Journal 
    The scientism hoax will be posted at the very end for you to read entirely- I'll post some direct quotations from the scientific study also
That these individuals had this hoax published at all speaks to us of many problems with what passes as science these days.
1-Pay for play: Very, very common in science/medical journals etc., (I’ll address that with a bit more depth further down the post
2-Peer review: What’s the value of claiming peer review if...
 a) it’s not reviewed with a skeptical eye or not reviewed at all?
 b) it’s published based on agendas and the peer review label serves as a type of appeal to authority rather then anything truly legitimate?
c) a hoax can actually receive two glowing peer reviews

  After reading through the many, many comments some points of interest stood out.

 Some of commenters claimed, because the authors had paid for publishing, this took away from their success in outing the fakery & agenda inherent in far to much science, Gender science included- As in haha you spent money to get this published.  It was lost on these very critics that there is a problem when it’s as easy as paying a fee to be published- no legit science necessary. Profit trumps real, provable, factual, reproducible, observable science.

Others claim that since other scientific journals have been hoaxed this is not a negative on the  specific journal that published this specific hoax- Yikes, so hoaxes have been published in more then one peer reviwed pay to play or otherwise journal, obviously, and that’s not a bad thing, entirely? Suuuurreeeee...

Then there are the penis envy commenters... of course, there are the  you feel threatened commenters? (not worth my time addressing ad hominem attacks)

The very problems these commenters down play regarding this hoax makes even more obvious the problem of gibberish/agenda being passed off as ‘science’. In a range of scientific fields, not limited to ‘gender studies’. Which is a social science aka society shaping/manipulating science.

The medical journals are full of ghost written pharmaceutical paid for ‘scientific studies’ I would say the AGW field is chock full of the same gibberish aka glossalalia as the ‘gender studies’ field, as the medical journals.. You will read the authors of the gender studies hoax actually blame the male sex organ for anthropogenic global warming!

Before we get to the gender science, pay for play hoax,  let’s talk about yet another AGW glossalia/science claim has bitten the dust.

The Great Lakes are going to dry up...

Being from the Great Lakes region this is one years ago we were informed of repeatedly

Dec 22/2009 “Climate change models suggest that temperatures will increase over the next century over the Great Lakes.
“ The truth is likely somewhere in between, with water levels falling between 0.23 meters and 2.5 meters.”
Temperatures haven't increased and water levels haven't fallen.
2012- “lake levels dropped to less than two inches (4 cm) above record lows”

Of course the claim is this is due to AGW and carbon “pollution” ( Carbon;The bedrock of all life on the planet) No explanation on what caused the previous record lows or when they occurred but lots of boogabooga.

The National Geographic article also claims the Great Lakes are at near ‘record high temperatures’ but fails to back up that claim- Recall in my previous post I mentioned the Great Lake temps are no longer reported on or publicly mentioned?? - Secret

Reality, because REAL SCIENCE is observable.   

The Lakes are at near record or perhaps record high levels with flooding all over the place- And expected to stay there. Exactly opposite of what was claimed by the AGW scientists and their forecasting (crystal ball reading)

Lake levels high- Breitbart with external links outward- check the outward links and don't shoot the messenger. If that won’t do it for you I’ve more links in the comments, previous post linked above, regarding flooding all around Lake Ontario..

Toronto Islands flooded- Carp swimming in the baseball diamonds- Buildings threatened

If AGW science had ever gotten it right I would be writing here today about how much bigger Toronto’s Islands have grown- And how much more prime beach front suddenly came up for sale- But that’s not REALITY

Pay to play from medical to science journals




If a gender studies hoax can be published, payment or not, and glowing reviewed what might this tell us about all so called peer reviewed science? AGW science. Medical science. Biology. Etc., I question the validity of the many scientific claims I've read over the years of having this blog- particularly when they've turned out to be so dam wrong!
Skeptic

Premise:
 This paper should never have been published. Titled, “The Conceptual Penis as a Social Construct,” our paper “argues” that “The penis vis-à-vis maleness is an incoherent construct. We argue that the conceptual penis is better understood not as an anatomical organ but as a gender-performative, highly fluid social construct.” As if to prove philosopher David Hume’s claim that there is a deep gap between what is and what ought to be, our should-never-have-been-published paper was published in the open-access (meaning that articles are freely accessible and not behind a paywall), peer-reviewed journal Cogent Social Sciences. (In case the PDF is removed, we’ve archived it.)
 Assuming the pen names “Jamie Lindsay” and “Peter Boyle,” and writing for the fictitious “Southeast Independent Social Research Group,” we wrote an absurd paper loosely composed in the style of post-structuralist discursive gender theory. The paper was ridiculous by intention, essentially arguing that penises shouldn’t be thought of as male genital organs but as damaging social constructions. We made no attempt to find out what “post-structuralist discursive gender theory” actually means. We assumed that if we were merely clear in our moral implications that maleness is intrinsically bad and that the penis is somehow at the root of it, we could get the paper published in a respectable journal.

Quotes from the paper:
 Manspreading — a complaint levied against men for sitting with their legs spread wide — is akin to raping the empty space around him.

Consider some examples. Here’s a paragraph from the conclusion, which was held in high regard by both reviewers:
We conclude that penises are not best understood as the male sexual organ, or as a male reproductive organ, but instead as an enacted social construct that is both damaging and problematic for society and future generations. The conceptual penis presents significant problems for gender identity and reproductive identity within social and family dynamics, is exclusionary to disenfranchised communities based upon gender or reproductive identity, is an enduring source of abuse for women and other gender-marginalized groups and individuals, is the universal performative source of rape, and is the conceptual driver behind much of climate change.
You read that right. We argued that climate change is “conceptually” caused by penises. How do we defend that assertion? Like this:
Destructive, unsustainable hegemonically male approaches to pressing environmental policy and action are the predictable results of a raping of nature by a male-dominated mindset. This mindset is best captured by recognizing the role of [sic] the conceptual penis holds over masculine psychology. When it is applied to our natural environment, especially virgin environments that can be cheaply despoiled for their material resources and left dilapidated and diminished when our patriarchal approaches to economic gain have stolen their inherent worth, the extrapolation of the rape culture inherent in the conceptual penis becomes clear.
And like this, which we claim follows from the above by means of an algorithmically generated nonsense quotation from a fictitious paper, which we referenced and cited explicitly in the paper:
Toxic hypermasculinity derives its significance directly from the conceptual penis and applies itself to supporting neocapitalist materialism, which is a fundamental driver of climate change, especially in the rampant use of carbon-emitting fossil fuel technologies and careless domination of virgin natural environments. We need not delve deeply into criticisms of dialectic objectivism, or their relationships with masculine tropes like the conceptual penis to make effective criticism of (exclusionary) dialectic objectivism. All perspectives matter.
If you’re having trouble understanding what any of that means, there are two important points to consider. First, we don’t understand it either. Nobody does. This problem should have rendered it unpublishable in all peer-reviewed, academic journals. Second, these examples are remarkably lucid compared to much of the rest of the paper.

American Officials Leak Name of Manchester Suicide Bomber

UPDATES BELOW:

He's been identified by US officials. Son of Libyan immigrants who allegedly fled Gaddafi's regime.
If the bomber died in the blast wouldn't they need some forensics for proper identity?
Of course a deceased victim wouldn't necessarily be the bomber anyway..
How could the US have identified this person so quickly and publicly? 
That put a bit of pressure on  Theresa May, no?

 Live Blog
More details are emerging about suicide bomber Salman Abedi.
Local reports said he was the child of Libyan refugees who fled to the UK to escape Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's regime, and was one of four children.
Theresa May previously said the bomber had been identified by security agencies, but that they were unable to name them at such an early stage of the investigation.
However, American officials appeared to have leaked Abedi's identity to media on the other side of the Atlantic.

Armed police raided the home of Manchester suicide bomber Salman Abedi, ordering residents indoors as they carried out a controlled explosion.
Elsmore Road, where 23-year-old Abedi was registered as living, became the centre of the investigation into Monday's outrage.
Neighbours in the red-bricked semi-detached street said they knew little about who was living at the home.
 The man who blew himself up during an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena has been named as 23-year-old Salman Abedi, US officials have said. Abedi killed 22 people, including children, and wounded 59 more shortly after Grande had finished her performance last night. Isis claimed responsibility for the attack. More follows
Two curiosities- The US names the perp and ISIS takes the responsibility

The Independent: Manchester Arena attacker identified: Police know who carried out suicide bombing, says Theresa May
Police have identified the Manchester Arena attacker but it is too early in the investigation to release his name, Theresa May has said.
“The police and security services believe they know the identity of the perpetrator but at this stage of their investigations we cannot confirm his name," the Prime Minister added.
“The police and emergency services have as always acted with great courage and on behalf of the country I want to express our gratitude to them - they acted in accordance with the plans they have in place and the exercises they conduct to test those plans and they performed with the utmost professionalism."

Police were urging members of the public not to speculate on the terrorist's identity as the investigation continued.
At least 22 people were killed and 59 more injured in the blast, which the foyer between Manchester Arena and Victoria station as thousands of people flooded out of an Ariana Grande concert on Monday night.
There has been no official claim of responsibility for the atrocity, but both Isis and al-Qaeda have been calling for attacks on the West and issued bomb-making guides.
Ian Hopkins, the Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police, said investigators believe the attack was carried out by a lone suicide bomber “carrying” a homemade device.“The priority is to establish whether he was acting alone or as part of a network,” he added.
Interesting? So with ISIS taking responsibility do we now have a network connection that takes up back to Libya? Or  will this be the justification for stepping up military intervention in Syria/Iraq?

Manchester news from Ally!

Terror attack in my city. Shocked. What are your thoughts? Police making arrests near my house.

Manchester has the immigrant population in the UK after England, and is also the second largest city. Lots of immigrants and it generally known for being a very friendly city-little discrimination. In the EU referendum, the Manchester population overall voted to remain so this attack will definitely serve to create tension in one of the most immigrant-friendly cities in the UK. I am of that feeling too, Penny. They knew what the result was going to be before they held the referendum and would not have called for it if they thought the people would not vote the way they wanted them to.


And yes, someone arrested quite quickly. Friends reporting that there are police vans outside a shopping mall arresting a man. How'd they find him so quick?? For all I know, it is a false flag!
If Ally leaves any additional info I will post it here! 

UPDATE #1:  UK Terror Threat Raised from High to Critical
The UK terror threat level has been raised from severe to the highest - critical - after the Manchester Arena bombing.
The move indicates that another attack is believed to be imminent.
Theresa May announced the threat level change, saying military personnel could be deployed to support armed police officers.
She said: "It is a possibility we cannot ignore that there is a wider group of individuals linked to this attack."

  The  UK Born suicide bomber has ties to Didsbury Mosque

This Didsbury Mosque rings a bell....
The Manchester Arena suicide bomber had made trips to Libya, Downing Street said last night, as intelligence agencies combed his connections with al-Qaeda and Islamic State in his parents’ homeland.
Salman Abedi, 22, was born in Manchester
 Abedi’s older brother Ismail had been a tutor at Didsbury mosque’s Koran school.
 He had become radicalised recently - it is not entirely clear when - and had worshipped at a local mosque that has, in the past, been accused of fund-raising for jihadists.

 "This time, the plan was to set up further meetings with the target in Didsbury, with the hope of introducing him to MI5"

Trump's "Beautiful Military Equipment" Tour Unites Theocratic Islam & Israel

One wouldn't have thought theocratic Islam & Israel needed any more uniting?
This is all about Iran. Very clearly.

NBC:
"One of the things that we will discuss is the purchase of lots of beautiful military equipment because nobody makes it like the United States," Trump said  "First that means jobs" he said, adding "it also means frankly great security back here which we want."
The beautiful military equipment tour for "frankly great security". The world according to Trump. While in Saudi Arabia Trump signed the ‘Largest Single Arms Deal in American History’
 The United States and Saudi Arabia have inked a $110 billion arms deal, the largest in American history.
The arms deal will see the U.S. providing Saudi Arabia with a "full spectrum of capabilities," including tanks, artillery, helicopters, armored carriers, combat ships, and an assortment of other advanced weapons systems, according to senior Trump administration officials working on the agreement.
The massive arms package is part of a larger effort by the Trump administration to boost U.S. allies in the region
The immediate 110 billion dollar package is just the beginning of a ten year- 350 billion dollar spending spree that will serve to burden the Saudi people with debt!
US-Saudi Arabia seal weapons deal worth nearly $110 billion immediately, $350 billion over 10 years
 The agreement, which is worth $350 billion over 10 years and $110 billion that will take effect immediately, was hailed by the White House as "a significant expansion of…[the] security relationship" between the two countries.
 Link - 34,000 soldiers to "fight ISIS in Iraq and Syria"
 Riyadh – The Arab-Islamic-US unveiled in Riyadh on Sunday a close partnership between the leaders of the Arab and Islamic worlds and the United States

The summit, chaired by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz, brought together US President Donald Trump with the leaders and representatives of 55 Arab and Muslim countries, who all voiced a readiness to form a reserve of 34,000 soldiers to back counter-terrorism operations.

On the regional level, the gatherers at the Riyadh summit stressed the importance of good neighborly practices and avoiding meddling in the internal affairs of other countries. The sovereignty and independence of countries should be respected.

They will take the necessary measures to prevent and combat terror crimes in close cooperation of these states.

They hailed the announcement of the intention to form the strategic Middle East alliance in the city of Riyadh. A number of countries will take part in it in order to achieve regional and global peace and security.

They completely rejected the practices of the Iranian regime that are targeting the region and world’s security and stability. They also rejected its ongoing support of terrorism and extremism.

 They vowed to confront its (Iran) actions and exert efforts to preserve the security of the region and world. They will confront Iran’s disruptive actions with determination through joint cooperation, stressed the Riyadh Declaration.
Defence Stocks Rise Across the Board as Trump Signs Massive Arms Deal in Advance of More War

 In Advance of MORE WAR..
Defense and aerospace stocks rose across the board in premarket trade Monday, after Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states signed arms deals worth $350 billion with the U.S. over the weekend.
  In Advance of MORE WAR..


 President Donald Trump says Israel's Arab neighbors are realizing they share a "common cause" with Israel in the threat from Iran.

Trump is urging the U.S. and Israel to boost cooperation against common threats, and declaring the Iran never be allowed to have a nuclear weapon.

He says Iran - Israel's chief enemy in the Middle East - must also cease funding, training and supplying weapons to terrorist groups.

 Said the pot to the kettle?

 Trump: Israel, Arab neighbors share common cause
Trump & Saudi Stooge
On Tuesday, the last details were apparently hammered out between the U.A.E.’s crown prince, Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and U.S. President Donald Trump in their meeting in Washington after Trump's earlier meeting with Mohammed bin Salman, the 31-year-old son of the Saudi king and the de facto ruler of the kingdom.

Defacto ruler? Catch that word use? - I've talked about the division in KSA previously and bin Salman is favoured by the US.  

Israel and Islamic theocracy march hand in hand
– Racing the clock ahead of US President Donald Trump’s visit, Israel’s Knesset and government advanced the bill declaring its state once-and-for-all a Jewish nation.
The Knesset, or the Israeli parliament, had on May 10 given the preliminary approval to a bill draft proposed by the Likud party member and Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee chairman Avi Dichter.
Despite being given the initial green light, it needs to be debated by a parliamentary committee and voted on three more times in the plenum before it becomes part of the country’s so-called “basic laws”, which are similar to a constitution.
In and of itself, the bill calls for stark discrimination against Arab minorities, while paradoxically maintaining Israel’s alleged “democracy.”
The bill aside, Jewish fundamentalism is a reality in Israel and what Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the government are embarking on is to merely give Jewish fanaticism a legal definition. Shoring up Israel’s presence as a theocracy in the world.
Dichter’s bill not only encroaches on genuine rights of the original landowners, the Palestinians, but also announces Hebrew as the sole official language, devaluing Arabic from a primary language to merely holding “special status.”

The bill also confiscates the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination.
It stipulates that the right of self-determination is enjoyed only by Jews … A term at which one must stop and ask how can racism be more explicit than this?
This glows beyond the fog of politics– it is a fundamentalist narrative at its finest. Self-declared right to supremacy over others, and self-given right to deprive, isolate and eliminate counterparts cannot better define zealotry. Such a bill promotes legal preference in a push to erase their trace from both geography and history.
Israel the finest theocracy in the middle east- Undeniable as it is a nation created solely and only for followers of a specific religion.

Don't forget NATO meeting on the 25th

From earlier today!

No garden planting, yet. Sigh.

Still Waiting for that Anthropogenic Global Warming...

It's our traditional May 2/4 weekend- Get your 24 beers.Watch fireworks. Garden.
Also known as Victoria Day weekend
No gardening going on here. 

The month of May is nearly over. Summer is just over 3 weeks away and we've had two, yes, two days of what I consider slightly warm temperatures for this time of year- 80 F or about 27- 28 C.
Two days for all of May- The rest of this month has been cold.Windy. Rainy. Below normal all month long.

Link: Short-lived summer in Ontario: Focus shifts to thunderstorms
Midsummer heat has been warmly welcomed across southern Ontario, with a two-day streak of temperatures surpassing 30 oC in some parts (not where I live)  of the region.
Yup, two days of warmth.
But cooler conditions are ahead, ( the whole month has been well below norm, except for two days)  along with a widespread risk of severe thunderstorms Thursday as the cold front moves through. Severe thunderstorm watches covered almost all of the south of the province in the afternoon, with some storms already sparking in areas further north in the early afternoon, and in most of the Greater Toronto Area by the late afternoon.
 Looking to the end of May:
 "Warmer than the first half of May, but no sustained 20 o+C weather in sight," Gillham says. "The pattern also becomes more unsettled again with next system of significance around Wednesday."
Here's hoping. Because May except for two days has been cold. 20 C = 68 Fahrenheit

How about the Atlantic Provinces- How about more snow?

50 cm of snow, more rain for Atlantic Canada long weekend

Sunday, May 21, 2017, 12:48 PM - The unofficial start of summer is here, but winter is still hanging on in Atlantic Canada. 
Newfoundland in particular is the seeing the worst of it, with accumulating snow for northern parts of the island and Labrador, with rainfall elsewhere on the island. Though snowfall warnings were slowly dropping off Sunday, the system leaves behind very hefty totals, according to Environment Canada.
"Cartwright has reported snowfall amounts of 50 cm since Friday. Latest indications suggest another 5 cm can be expected before the snow tapers off tonight," the weather agency says.
Snow marking the kick off of summer in Newfoundland

 

 
 
Crops are weeks behind schedule, gardeners are waiting to plant until the sun comes out and winter jackets are still out in force.
On Monday, when temperatures reached 10.3 C, a new mark was set for the lowest May 15 daytime high, beating out the previous record of 10.6 C in 1965. That’s based on the temperature at the Victoria International Airport weather station, where Environment Canada has been collecting data since 1941.
On the bright side of things we got to see a whole pile of Kite Surfers at one of the local beaches. They were fully suited for the cold weather and high winds.  As we also were.
It was a very colourful display. Despite what had to be the cold temps of the Lake, which is now a secret,  no longer shared on a daily basis by Environment Canada.

And if someone can assist me in finding them I would love to know where they can be found?
I checked the marine forecast . They give you wind and waves. Water temperature used to be part of daily reporting..... but now it's secret. Same as historical temps. Secret.

The Doomsday Vault is NOT Flooded - AGW Cult Glossolalia

This is getting ridiculous- The constant overwrought dramatics. The claim of the flooded doomsday vault is more glossolalia , always accompanied by hysteria, that leaves the sane questioning, coherent thinker wanting something tangible. Something factual. Comprehensible. Something like, truth.

First  from the Guardian - Arctic Stronghold of Worlds Seeds Flood after Permafrost Melts
OMG the Doomsday Vault is DOOMED- Hysterical enough for you?
 This type of spin follows a very predictable pattern of screaming headlines then later quiet clarifications- You can see this type of manipulation occur regularly and persistently regarding any and all concocted situations.  The flooded doomsday vault is a lie. I bring you the quiet clarification- Please make sure it gets some attention

LET'S GET REAL- The Doomsday Vault Isn't Flooded.....
 But according to one of the vault’s creators, the reports are pretty overblown and everything’s fine.Well, the vault’s fine.
 Cary Fowler, one of the creators of the vault:  “Flooding is probably not quite the right word to use in this case,” he told them. According to Fowler, a little bit of water has made its way into the entrance every year. Though he wasn’t present at the vault when the ‘flooding’ occurred this year, he insists that it’s a pretty routine occurrence.
The tunnel was never meant to be water tight at the front, because we didn’t think we would need that”-
Before you jump to a foolish conclusion about why they didn't need to make the tunnel entrance water tight, read on.
“Basically, there’s a 100-meter tunnel that serves as a walkway into the mountain and it goes downhill. Before you reach the vault doors, the ground shifts uphill. This little area allows water to collect and two pumps can evacuate it”
I'll repeat that little tidbit
  "This little area allows water to collect and two pumps can evacuate it”

They planned for water removal via two pumps built in for just such a reason.  Knowing water would inevitably pool on a regular basis... which tells us they expected water to collect and they built in an ability for the water to be moved away
In fact, according to Fowler, if the water were to make it all the way uphill it would get hit with temperatures around minus 18 degrees celsius, freeze, and create a new barrier.
Minus 18 degrees celsius is plenty dam cold.( -0.4F ) In fact Fowler said if the water made it uphill it would freeze and create a barrier- Of course it would! Because it's very, very cold.

I've been busy the past couple of days and have left a bevy of posts for readers- Enjoy them

Must Watch Trudeau be A Pompous Arse- Worse then Harper

Note the arrogant smugness of Trudeau. I did NOT vote for this groomed stooge.
 "Opposition force Canadian Crime Minister Justin Trudeau to humiliate himself by having to avoid the exact same question, in what has to be a world record, 18 TIMES!!! May 10, 2017.

World Jewish Values Network WaPo Ad: Trump, Bomb Syria!

When the crematorium news made the rounds earlier this week I noticed and stated..
"We're getting into Holocaust™ territory with this claim.
Reinforcing well known, well worn mind viruses"
flashback:  Assad's (Hitler) Crematorium Claims the US

Keep that specific spin in mind as you read the next item up for your perusal.
 The Jews (self-identified) say"President Trump: When you're in Israel Next Week- You'll be 140 miles from the Syria Crematoria (that most likely doesn't exist) For the Love of God (WTF?) Bomb it Now.

Directly below is the ad placed in WaPo by this Jewish values organization.

Exactly what kind of values do these people have?


Link: PR WEB Releases
The World Values Network (WVN), an organization that aims to advance America’s standing through the dissemination of Jewish values in politics, culture, and media, posted a full-page advertisement in WaPo’s Friday, May 19th edition publicly challenging President Trump to bomb the functioning Syrian Crematoria.
It's  extremely highly unlikely this claimed crematoria exists- The evidence was circumstantial. ie: concocted. Making it very clear Jewish interests want Trump to bomb Syria- Period!
"Clearly delineated as an anti-genocide plan, the WVN stresses that this initiative is critical given Syria’s relevance and close proximity to the Jewish State.

The advertisement also directly publicized the WVN’s upcoming annual Champions of Jewish Values Awards Gala, which will take place this Sunday night, 21 May, 5pm, at Cipriani 42nd St. The event will pay special tribute to Holocaust survivor, renowned author, political activist, and Nobel Peace Laureate, Elie Wiesel, who recently passed away on the 2nd of July 2016.

The advertisement draws close comparison between the crematoria in Auschwitz 1944, and Syria 2017, and along with Wiesel’s personal relation to the Holocaust, the WVN urges President Trump to carry out what it sees as an obligatory humanitarian mission"
Pay attention to those they are honouring at their gala of despicableness.

World Values Network’s Discovery Chairman and CEO David Zaslav will be offering a special verbal and video tribute to Mr. Wiesel at the gala, and will introduce the evening’s Keynote Speaker, Elisha Wiesel, who will present the Elie Wiesel Award, which will be presented to Derek Black. Black is a former White Nationalist who, through the guidance and support of his Jewish friend, Matthew Stevenson, shifted his mindset to respect all people equally.

In the Jewish religion, the Kaddish (mourner's prayer) is recited for 11 months after a family member’s death. The last Kaddish for Elie Wiesel will be said by Elisha during a prayer service at the gala.

The gala will also feature many distinguished guests who, while coming from varying backgrounds and occupations, share a unified dedication and affinity for love towards the Jewish people, and all people in today’s world.

President of Rwanda Paul Kagame will be receiving the Dr. Miriam and Sheldon G. Adelson Award for Friendship with the Jewish People, presented by Dr. Mehmet Oz of the Dr. Oz TV Show.
Paul Kagame is a tyrant and mass murderer

Wife of Elie Weisel- Didn't Mr Weisel fabricate abundantly? Gilad Atzmon: Enough of Elie Wiesel
 "Wiesel can also read Israeli Sever Plocker’s declaration that “some of (the) greatest murderers of modern times were Jewish.”  Just a few years after the Holodomor, the Yiddish speaking International Brigade murdered Catholics and burned their churches in Spain (1936)"
That's explains the honouring of Paul Kagame!
 
What should us non jews think of these so called Jewish values?
These values don't look so hot to me!  
Honouring killers and liars and demanding nations be bombed. All for the benefit of Israel?
As if Israel doesn't have the blood of tens of thousands of Syrians already on it's hands already.
Chutzpah or what?
"The World Values Network will also honor Israel's Minister of Agriculture Uri Ariel, Israel’s Consul General of New York, Dani Dayan, Israel’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Danny Danon, Elie Wiesel's wife, Marion Wiesel, former Prime Minister of Spain, Jose Maria Aznar, American Hebrew Academy CEO Glenn Drew, and WVN Chairman Michael Fromm. Master of ceremonies will be Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.

The World Values Network has emerged as a seminal organization, whose relentless commitment to promoting Jewish values and advocating for a better future is deeply impactful. It has proven to be uniquely effective in carrying out its mission to instill universal Jewish values in modern politics and culture, as well as defend the State of Israel to the mainstream and international media. In conjunction with world leaders of every walk, it furthers these causes to worldwide audiences through media campaigns, debates, and lectures at venues across the globe"

World Values Network 

Is that the pompous Bernard Henri Levy front and center?
Quotes from their site below:
 "Mission is to disseminate universal Jewish values in politics, culture, and media, making the Jewish people a light unto the nations.
World Values Network is dedicated to disseminating the light of the Jewish people and promoting and defending the state of Israel as the supreme embodiment of a nation founded on these principles"
 Seriously, is their mission some kind of sick cruel joke on the non jew?
What are their values if they honour liars, killers and demand President's to bomb other nations based on lies their partners in values, undoubtedly conjured.

 Truth Exists; Only Lies Are invented.

From where I sit the crematorium lie was invented. It's a hoax.
There is no credible proof that it exists. 

Apparently this is not a first for this group. Haaretz
