US Boat to Gaza Loaded with Jewish Dissenters

Very nice piece about the US boat which plans on traveling to Gaza. Since the Rafah border crossing has been permanently opened by the Egyptians, the Gaza bound boats are mostly symbolic but the solidarity expressed around the world for the Palestinian plight is quite significant. There are some eyebrow-raising stats in this piece about the percentage of Jewish Americans who do support the '67 borders.

Do Facts Even Matter?

This article is well-written and reverberates a previous theme of some posts, that many people who are pro-Israel never use actual facts in their arguments but make emotional arguments instead.

Israel Kills Protesters

The Obama admin harshly criticized Yemen, Bahrain, Syria and Libya in their aggressive, brutal and bloody treatment of unarmed protesters. The question is what type of rhetoric will come from the same admin when it is Israel that is doing the killing.

I guarantee a different angle is taken, one that says a nation's territorial integrity must be obeyed ... even if that territory is illegally held since 1967 (the Golan heights).

Every time Israel has a chance to show the world how "moral" its army truly is, what does it do? It kills innocent civilians aboard a flotilla designed to break an illegal siege of 1.5 million people. It kills 900 civilians, including 400 children, and is charged and found guilty of war crimes during Operation Cast Lead. It never ceases to amaze the absolute cold-blooded nature of the IDF killing machine when other nation's civilians are involved. But when others do it to them, the poor innocent victim card is played! If the word double-standard is sought in a dictionary, it should read "see also Israel".

Ex Mossad Chief Rips Bibi

There is a particularly poignant quotation in this article. Hopefully Israelis will read this article and see how isolated it has become under Netanyahu's "leadership".

September should be interesting this year!

Koch on Obama and US Presidents

What is missing in this eye-opener is the obvious question : If Israel is the central driving force behind Koch's support or opposition, then who is this dude more loyal to, the US or Israel? He switches to support George W. Bush even though he did not support him on one domestic policy! This is an admission that the ONLY issue important to him is Israel. Tel Aviv is to the east Mr. Koch. Go over there and run for the Knesset and get out of the discourse here, you are only making things worse.

Rahmbo Defends Obama's '67 Borders Comment

I am happy to see that former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel made a public statement on Obama's comments concerning the '67 borders and its importance in any eventual peace deal. The rabid manner in which Obama was attacked by simply stating what happens to be the international consensus for 4 decades speaks volumes to the degree of influence AIPAC wields over the US Congress. If you look at all the times that Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are vocal opponents of Obama positions, every time Israel is at the center. And now with Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich scrambling out of the cracks to appear as pro-Israel as possible, is there any lingering doubt that this issue is a central issue in the 2012 elections?
