(the hat my daughter got while there)
You have to read this, albeit a source some will immediately jump on as biased and unobjective,but, if true, well, WTF:
This is the beauty from it: “When The Times of Israel’s Avi Issacharoff first reported the content of John Kerry’s ceasefire proposal on Friday afternoon, I wondered if something had gotten lost in translation. It seemed inconceivable that the American secretary of state would have drafted an initiative that, as a priority, did not require the dismantling of Hamas’s rocket arsenal and network of tunnels dug under the Israeli border. Yet the reported text did not address these issues at all, nor call for the demilitarization of Gaza.”
You have got to be kidding me. Thank God I am not a representative for Israel, because if I was and the public there supported me in my frank, terse, and abrupt dialogue, this is how I would address the UN if asked:
“This council and all the supporters who have shown no regard nor concern for Israel, I hope your support for Hamas and other terrorists gets your antisemitic asses blown up one day! And don’t come rushing to us WHEN these terrorists who hate everyone else except their blind loyalists and ignorant masses come after you once you have satisfied their agenda”
Then give them the universal middle finger and walk out!
Hey, not diplomatic, not respectful, and certainly not interested in dialogue. I think the deeds of the current leadershit in this country, and abroad, show that Israel has few supporters, but those who are won’t put up with this bullshit any more.
I wish Benjamin Netanyathu could be brutally honest at this point, I would cheer him on!
And all you loyal Democrat Jews, well, you got your President, shut up when he tries to screw Israel further. Blind partisan loyalty, you disgust me!
I love this picture!
Addendum, more to read:
“The only way to resolve the situation in Gaza is to destroy Hamas’ credibility with Gazans and force them into collapse. Hamas started this war, and they’ve refused all other cease-fire proposals until now because they keep expecting the world to intervene and restrain Israel while they still fire rockets from behind the skirts of civilians. Perhaps this time, the world should leave Hamas to deal with the consequences of the wars they start, and let Israel finish the job in dismantling their terror infrastructure for good.”
Wow, if this story has merit, I think it is time for the American Jewish lobby to act on their own to support Israel. And, responsible and attentive Jewish voters, sorry, the only way to punish Barack Obama is NOT vote Democrat at all this November, and let his party punish him personally and profoundly for the violation of trust.
That is the only way to make a point!
another addendum, another take, bit of an echo, but, I like the picture with it:
the link is this, and man, I think this story is going to explode tomorrow morning!
ends with this: “Here’s the bottom line, if anything Kerry’s intrusion into the cease-fire process has served to screw it up even more than it had been prior to his entrance. Like others in the Obama administration, on too many foreign policy issues, the Secretary of State is so desperate to create a deal that he abandons reason.”
addendum #3: ohhh, this is good and pathetic for yet another alleged ally of America, and Israel???
“The BBC are staying very quiet about the recent bouts of Muslim ‘fury and resentment’ as attackers prowl the streets of Europe hunting down Jews….the same BBC that handed over the airwaves to Muslim activists raging about ‘Islamophobia’ and acted as cheerleader for the orchestrated Establishment witch hunt against the EDL.
The BBC’s almost complete silence on anti-Semitism is striking.
The Sunday Times headlines the new Europe that is developing, and has been, ignored by the BBC, for years…Gaza is just a cover for anti-Semites to carry out their pogroms….after all where are the same ‘protests’ about ISIS, Syria, Pakistan, Nigeria and all those other countires where Christians are becoming an endangered species….not just Christians but Muslims declared not to be ‘Muslim’…and that includes Britain where the Ahmadi are declared blasphemers…and hence are in danger.”
Funny, really seems to mirror how the Nazis once with some sizeable clout intimidated everyone who’s gonads were left in the septic tank…
addendum #4: this is beyond rude, but I have to ask, is Nancy Pelosi either becoming demented, or has taken partisan support so low that if she was shown a video of the President shooting a person in the back, Pelosi would reply “well, that person should not have have been stupid enough to put his back in front of the gun”.
watch the video from this link, really?!
“REP. NANCY PELOSI: First of all let me disagree with the — when we were growing up, you after me, but we were in a bipolar word, the Soviet Union and the United States. It’s a much more complicated situation now and the president’s leadership has been strong. And the issues you are dealing with this morning, the president was in the lead on supporting Iron Dome and asking for more resources now to help Israel defend itself, which it has as right to do.”
This woman’s district has to be as a majority per voting block the most disingenuous, dishonest, and frankly, meanest people in the US, to keep Pelosi in office for the decades she has been there now. Hey, tied this in to the Israeli issue, eh???
ADDENDUM JULY 29 9PM: HOW THE HELL DID I MISS THIS?:
“Then, the former Speaker made a statement (summarizing something told to her) that seemed to take Candy Crowley by surprise.
“And we have to confer with the Qataris, who have told me over and over again that Hamas is a humanitarian organization. Mbe they could use their influence to–”
Crowley jumped in, stopping Pelosi, asking her to clarify that statement, “The U.S. thinks they’re a terrorist organization though, correct? Do you?”
Pelosi did not actually speak a word in response to that question. Instead she uttered, “Mmm hmm.”
I TAKE BACK MY EARLIER COMMENT SHE “MIGHT” BE DEMENTED. SHE IS! OR, CALIFORNIA VOTERS, YOU HAVE THE BIGGEST IDIOT AS A REPRESENTATIVE JUST ONE STEP AWAY FROM BEING SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE AGAIN, OR, PER THE CONSITUTION, 3 STEPS AWAY FROM BEING PRESIDENT IF SHE WAS SPEAKER AND THE PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT WERE KILLED!
To you democrat Jews out there, here is a poll to make you crap your pants:
From this week’s The Week magazine.
Hey, keep voting Democrat, and just as well hand the bombs to Hamas yourself. Idiots!
Last addendum for July 27: finally this summation from the Blaze:
We’ll finish the post for now with this from the above:
“According to multiple Israeli media reports, including the Times of Israel, Kerry’s proposal “accepted Hamas’s demands for the opening of border crossings into Gaza — where Israel and Egypt fear the import of weaponry; the construction of a seaport; and the creation of a post-conflict funding channel for Hamas from Qatar and other countries.”
The Times of Israel further noted that Kerry’s cease-fire proposal did not allow the IDF to continue dismantling Hamas’ “terror tunnels,” even though they run well into Israeli territory and have been used to kill six Israeli soldiers in just the past week.
“The document placed Israel and Hamas on the same level, as if the first is not a primary U.S. ally and as if the second isn’t a terror group which overtook part of the Palestinian Authority in a military coup and fired thousands of rockets at Israel,” Ravid noted.”
In there the article says that “Kerry isn’t anti-Israeli; on the contrary, he’s a true friend to Israel.”, but, then the next sentence is this: “But his conduct in recent days over the Gaza cease-fire raises serious doubts over his judgment and perception of regional events. It’s as if he isn’t the foreign minister of the world’s most powerful nation, but an alien, who just disembarked his spaceship in the Mideast. […]“
I’m sorry, but, I don’t want to have friends who allegedly care but act like they are from another planet. Where the hell did common sense go when Kerry got involved, pushed out of the plane he came in on somewhere over a body of water???
Can’t wait until tomorrow when the daily White House press briefing happens, screw the lame State Department briefings, have you listened to that woman who runs it, she has to be so far up Obama’s butt it is amazing she can be understood!
addendum July 28 AM: Nice column by Jennifer Rubin putting the issue in the best perspective I would hope readers can read and digest, even if they don’t agree:
“Then there is the matter of Kerry’s choice of diplomats and locale: TheTimes of Israel reports, “Channel 2′s Ehud Ya’ari, one of Israel’s most respected Middle East commentators, lambastes Kerry for having jetted off to Paris to meet with the Europeans, Turks and Qatar, with no Egyptians, no representatives of Mahmoud Abbas’s PA, and no Israelis present.” He sure seems anxious to undercut the people (primarily the Egyptians) who are most likely to hold the line against Hamas and who are trying to put into place conditions that Israel desperately needs to secure its population from daily assault. If selling out Israel is Kerry’s goal, there is no better group to enlist than the Europeans.”
Tell me Kerry’s behaviors are a support to Israel! Oh, and Abbas’s reaction:
I love this: “Fatah, Abbas’s political party, has also lambasted Kerry’s apparent move to exclude it from the ceasefire negotiations.
“No one represents the Palestinian people in any international venue but the pain and blood of the Palestinians,” read a message posted on the movement’s official Facebook page, referring to Kerry’s meeting Saturday in Paris with representatives of Qatar and Turkey, but of neither Egypt nor the PA.
“Whoever wants Qatar and Turkey to represent them can emigrate and go live there. Our only legitimate representative is the PLO.”
Maybe that might resolve the conflict, everyone unhappy in Gaza can emigrate. Oops, that is, if they are welcome in these other countries. Take note the two faced nature of the rest of the Arab world: scream of the unjustices on Palestinians, but, they can’t come to other Arab countries. NIMBY!!!
Oh, and then found this:
Read this and wonder why Israel wants to decimate Hamas!:
“Another point neglected by Kerry is the Iranian factor, for as he seeks to pressure Israel into a suicide ceasefire agreement Khalid Meshal has been contacting Iran. The latter’s deputy foreign minister met with Meshal on Sunday 29 Tammuz as Tehran is eager to restock and resupply its formidable Gazan ally. In addition, Hamas has been in touch with North Korea and it has already put down a sizable down payment towards restocking its arsenal.”
Really, now North Korea could be a player? Yeah, keep up all those sympathies for Hamas and Gaza, now possibly extensions of TWO major players in terrorism. You think what happens to Israel won’t happen here?!
July 28 early PM: The UN, which now stands for either Useless Negotiators, or, Unanimous Naifs, boy, are they also now a Universal Name-callers of antisemitism as well, wanting Israel charged with war crimes. F— this manipulated, narrowminded, and ignorant bunch of idiots:
“Pillay and the other members of the Human Rights Council should undertake the following mental exercise: Imagine what would happen if Hamas, in direct contravention of its violent version of Islam, were to abandon the armed struggle against Israel, demilitarize the Gaza Strip and channel its efforts and the many millions of dollars in aid it receives from the international community into bettering the lives of Gazans. The Gaza Strip would slowly, but steadily, begin to flourish. Israel, no longer endangered by Hamas’s implementation of its bellicose theology, would open the border crossings and the sea routes to and from Gaza. Palestinians would enjoy a growing economy on a strip of land with one of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean. It sounds almost utopian.
Now, the Human Rights Council members should imagine what would happen if Israel were to lay down its arms, cease to defend itself, and allow Hamas-controlled Gaza to arm itself with the help of Iran or some other Islamist group, unimpeded by a blockade of any kind. The result would be dystopian. Israel would be quickly overrun by terrorists who would proceed to carry out genocide. Nor would the UN would do nothing to prevent such genocide.”
Again per other posts, you tolerate irresponsible, incompetent, and frank criminal behaviors, you are doomed. Israel needs to go to the UN and if this incompetent body of representatives continue to make baseless and unsubstantiated accusations, pick the correct finger to show them who is number one, in being jerks!
Addendum later July 28 PM: nice summary from Jeffrey Goldberg:
He shows how Israel is in a near lose-lose situation, but, better to die trying than die crying.
One point readers should google further: “3. People talk a lot about the Jewish lobby. But the worldwide Muslim lobby is bigger, comprising, among other components, 54 Muslim-majority states in the United Nations. Many Muslims naturally sympathize with the Palestinian cause. They make their voices heard, and they help shape a global anti-Israel narrative, in particular by focusing relentlessly on Gaza to the exclusion of conflicts in which Muslims are being killed in even greater numbers, but by Muslims (I wrote about this phenomenon here).”
How strong is antisemitic attitude? How many other situations where what Hamas does would not only be tolerated, but defended by alleged outside parties? Folks, it is time to accept that antisemitism is so pervasive, you need to start thinking how to go it alone outside your own supports as Jews. And, sorry, but when these bastards find out how important Judaism really is to other cultures, well, I don’t see the value of helping them at this point of the way people are so shallow, indifferent, and selfish. Their efforts to reengage are only self serving and limited. Hey, just my opinion.
Oh, and finally for this post for now, this from a WaPo writer:
He is not so pro Israel, but, he does not paint a smart effort by Kerry.
(my caption: “why did I take this job!?)
Last addendum for July 28: At the end, leave it to John Boehner, the only one in my opinion who has a finger on the pulse not only of America, but our allies and international interests:
“Meanwhile, House Speaker John Boehner said Monday that support for Israel must be the United States’ main focus and not peace mediation, in a subtle jab at the Obama administration.
“At times like this, people try to isolate Israel – but we are here to stand with Israel,” Boehner said in remarks at the National Press Club. “Not just as a broker or observer — but as a strong partner and a trusted ally.”
And there it is, where Obama tries to covertly disrupt.
July 29 addendums: First this one, by the way both from http://www.realclearpolitics.com, a decent site for real bipartisan attacks of idiocy and stupidity by both sides of the Republocrat assholes:
ends with this: “But maybe the United States doesn’t want to take sides anymore. Maybe the Obama administration’s recent dealings in the Middle East reflect this attitude. Maybe Kerry’s actions weren’t a mistake but an attempt to show Israel’s enemies that we can be even-handed. Because we either have an incompetent Secretary of State or a momentous shift in Middle East policy. Either way, Kerry’s actions have created a bigger mess.”
then this other link from RCP:
“The potential of Qatar sending more money to Hamas, which was also not part of the Egyptian ceasefire proposal, contributed to an eruption of anger and retaliation against Kerry that spilled over into the press.
“The draft Kerry passed to Israel on Friday shocked the cabinet ministers not only because it was the opposite of what Kerry told them less than 24 hours earlier, but mostly because it might as well have been penned by Khaled Meshal. It was everything Hamas could have hoped for,” wrote Ha’aretz reporter Barak Ravid in an op-ed. “The document placed Israel and Hamas on the same level.”
The article sparked another firestorm in American and Israeli circles, with dueling accusations of betrayal and stabs-in-the-back. But by Monday, both the Israeli government and the Obama administration tried to tamp down the perception that there was any rift in the U.S.-Israel alliance.”
Gotta love the Net surfing done by colleague Dr O’Brien to finish this addendum evening:
We meaning the U.S.
Now that the laugh is over, what will Barack Obama do next to show he is interested in Muslim agendas first?!
Last addendum for this post, July 30:
“So there you have it. The leader of Hamas says, point blank, it does not want a two-state solution. Yet scores of liberal commentators continue to make arguments like this: “We have to get a solution. And it has to be a two-state solution. And it has to be basically encouraged, if not imposed, I think, from without.”
This is an example of what social scientists call “motivated reasoning.” It refers to when people hold to a false belief despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. In this instance, the Hamas charter and the Hamas leader don’t accept Israel’s right to exist. And yet liberals don’t seem to care. They appear to be content to live in world made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust. A world of make believe. And so in the context of Israel’s war with Hamas, they continue to revert to arguments that simply don’t apply–for example, arguing that Israel needs to “end the occupation” despite the fact that Israel completely withdrew from Gaza nearly a decade ago.”
It really is both a shame and the textbook illustration of how a party can allow itself to be hijacked by an antisocial cretin who feeds on the desperation of people who just crave power and control, after all, the Democrats were so beat down by 6 years of unchallenged Republican rule, and they had to win.
Again, to all you Democrat Jews out there, you are pathetic to stay committed to the Democrat Party. Not that I would recommend the Republican Party as an alternative, as they probably support Israel because they have the “chance” to be at war, and oh how the Republicans like to kill people, especially anyone who is not White nor Christian! But, Obama has truly taken control of the Democrats, and they will burn for their betrayal not only of supporting real allies, but their complete loss of common sense. Oh, and loss of commitment to public trust.
This probably was my longest post at this blog, I know due to addendums, but, wow, how it flowed.
