Young American Jews and Israel

This article is very well-written and does a great job introducing the moral dilemma that many Jews face on the issue of Israel and its treatment of Palestinians. The moral character of the young man has evolved to view the issue from both sides. I wish all people, Christian, Muslim or Jew, could remember to do this when forming opinions on important issues.

A very good read.

Build, Build, Build

Big surprise, the Israelis are building more illegal settlements in East Jerusalem. Obama is now proclaiming that US-Israel ties are unshakeable, and a new report suggests that the US Congress is moving to Tel Aviv.

What a tragic farce.

Political Tsunami

It's a crying shame that the US press would never dare run such a story. With all my criticisms of Israeli policies, I must give credit to the Israeli press because there is still some semblance of journalism there and dissent is given a greater spotlight.

Holy Cow, I Agree with a Clinton, Somewhat

Bill Clinton did make a sincere effort to forge a lasting agreement between the Israelis and the Palestinians. He claims to be mystified why Taba did not work. Because Barak walked out.

But his comments on Netanyahu are spot on. The guy is a snake.

Chavez Urged Americans' Release

The US media and US government love to vilify Chavez. I am not a fan of his policies nor do I detest his policies. But it is worth mentioning that a President of a foreign nation who survived a CIA coup in 2002 reaches out to another leader who is at odds with US policy and influences the decision to free Americans from an Iranian prison. Could the US perhaps learn a lesson from this diplomacy and return to the Golden Rule on foreign policy? I daresay this would go a lot farther than what current foreign policy does, embitter the whole world against the US.

Obama at the UN

What a joke his foreign policy on Israel has become. The Israelis announce a new housing project in East Jerusalem while Biden visits, in violation of the freeze. Netanyahu ignores past Israeli commitments to the '67 borders, and gets 31 standing ovations from the US Congress. Surreal it is that a foreign prime minister receives 31 standing ovations for highlighting his refusal to abide by international law from the US Congress. They applauded Netanyahu while he spit in Obama's eye.

Now Obama gives a speech at the UN in which he says the UN is not the proper forum. It was the proper forum in 1948 to ESTABLISH Israel. It was the proper forum to conclude that the lands seized in the '67 war were to be returned to the Palestinians. The "proper" forums of Camp David 1, Oslo, Camp David 2, Taba, Arab League Proposals all yielded what? Israeli intransigence and rejectionism. And the US has deceived its people that it should be the arbiter to mediate the issue. The solution has been known. The international consensus has been overwhelming in support of a Palestinian state.
And once again the US will expose its unconditional support for a state which does not abide by international law, commits massive war crimes, steals and occupies other people's lands, refuses to sign the NPT, commits extra-judicial assassinations of foreign nationals, spies on the US ad nauseam. When the US vetoes the UN Security Council resolution, it will be something like the 45th lone veto at the UNSC in its protection of Israel. Obama caved in to AIPAC. Through it all we see that no American President ever wins against AIPAC. No senator or congressperson. It is clear to me because of this cancer on our system, we are very much under the boot of Israel. When the US President has to follow orders and give a speech on an issue that he disagrees with the Israelis on, that is a true measure of how pathetic it has become.

I prefer the Obama who said that no people has suffered like the Palestinians have suffered. Of course he said this when he was a state senator of Illinois and friends with Rashid Khalidi. This was before the political machine chewed him up and spit him out as a dedicated Zionist whore.

AIPAC has this president, the US Congress, and look at the GOP nominees Perry, Romney and Bachmann in a hysterical effort to forge a stronger resume on Israel than the other candidates. So bye bye Miss American pie ...

What A Rabbi !

How people who claim to honor God utter such non-Godly comments and never recognize the irony of such commentary is beyond me.

9-11 First Responders Not Invited?????

What a huge slap in the face NYC mayors continue to give 9-11 First Responders. First Rudy Guiliani implemented his amoral "scoop and dump" plan instead of continuing to recover human remains of First Responders. Now Bloomberg won't allow First Responders to attend a memorial service for 9-11 victims? But Bush and Obama will be there with many other politicians trying to convert Americans' emotions into some new misguided adventure overseas or at home. This is beyond ridiculous. First Responders should be honored for their sacrifice, not uninvited!

A Simple Principle

Unlike our politicians that flee from principle like a fugitive flees the police, Erdogan is drawing a line in the sand and refusing to budge from his position. This is dangerous rhetoric, but Israel should have not killed those people in the first place, then it should not have confiscated all those laptops and cameras and detained peaceful protesters the way it did, it should have apologized but did not out of stubborn pride and moral self-righteousness. Erdogan wants to send an armed escort. This after Turkey enacts sanctions against Israel on a few fronts. This guy is serious and I respect his steadfastness.

Another Israeli Spy Captured

The FBI caught this guy in the act of passing classified intelligence to a person he thought was an Israeli agent. I applaud the efforts of the FBI. They seem to be the only institution in the US that does not turn a blind eye to Israeli malfeasance. They trapped Franklin, Rosen and Weissman in a similar manner. Where has the media coverage of this issue been? Outside of the NYT running this article I have not seen any activity at all on this one. This country needs an honest and open press, not one that slavishly follows Zionist dogma and protects Jewish interests.

Turkey Expels Israeli Diplomats

Another UN report. More Israeli denials and refusal to apologize. They want to have normal relations with other countries while acting recklessly and brutally. Let's see what happens this month at the UN. The GA will support the Palestinian state. The US will be Israel's proxy in the SC and veto it.
