    Two blowhards under one roof: I’m surprised the turbulence didn’t cause the White House to collapse.

    I was amazed how early in the evening (UK time) the news conference took place. It appears it happened as soon as Netanyahu arrived at the White House – i.e. no discussions beforehand; certainly no negotiations.

    Israel loved the Peace Process . It could talk BS while building settlements. It had zero responsibility. Now the 2SS is dead. Israel is in serious shit.

      It hurts to say this, however the palestinians are nothing, but cowards!
      70 years ago they greatly outnumbered the invading jews, however they just let them take control of more and more land. Their intifada was nothing, but children throwing stones at armoured vehicles and getting shot in return.
      Where were all the men, the types who put a fear into the IDF in Lebanon? Hiding behind their children, so anyone who expects these people to put up a good fight for their freedom also believes the moon is made out of fine swiss cheese.

        The generation that endured the nakba and the 2 that followed were too traumatised to fight coherently. The young generation now are different.

        “It hurts to say this, however the palestinians are nothing, but cowards!”

        “Theo” really, if you want to be a Zionist, you don’t have to make excuses or disparage the Palestinians. You’re submission to apparent power is so obvious, you don’t need to make any excuses, it’s a deep-seated need you’ve got, and the Zionists, and Trump answer it.

        I hope you get everything that’s coming to you.

        “It hurts to say this, however the palestinians are nothing, but cowards!”

        Says a supporter of a state that sends its illegal settlers and their children to the front lines

        “70 years ago they greatly outnumbered the invading jews, “

        The Palestinians were invaded, not Israel. Glad we got that sorted.

        “… anyone who expects these people to put up a good fight for their freedom also believes the moon is made out of fine swiss cheese”

        Thanks for showing folk just how sick Zionist shills can be.

        Keep up th’ good work

        It’s cute how you think Israel as it is today will still be around in 50 years :)

        “don’t worry. at the 100th anniversery of six day war these people’s grandchildren will still be here complaining and advocating grandson-of-BDS” “aloeste”

        Yup, cause Jewish people have nothing better to do than sit in a desert and starve.

        Or, who knows, maybe the Zionists will win, and the world will celebrate the Jews (as we, of course celebrate ourselves) for destroying the Palestinians.

        Not the hundredth anniversary – the thousandth. You’re a Zionist – I’m surprised that you have so little faith in the longevity of your “Jewish State” homeland.

        “Hitler probably had similar delusions”

        Yes, but megalomaniacal delusions are much more convincing when you’ve got 90 million people you can pretty much control and a large country.

        @Mooser “Yes, but megalomaniacal delusions are much more convincing when you’ve got 90 million people you can pretty much control and a large country.”

        Perhaps a country of more than 300 million?

        “Perhaps a country of more than 300 million?”

        Hopefully we are at once more stable, and harder to control (5th paragraph on, especially)

    THE ART (I.E., PSYCHOLOGY) OF THE DEAL STEAL

    ● Trump: “Bibi, can you hold off on the new settlements for a bit?”
    ● Netanyahu: [no audible response, just the stern look of a disapproving father]
    ● Trump: “Come on Bibi, just for a[n] itsy bitsy, teeny tiny, iddy biddy while?”
    ● Netanyahu: [no audible response, just the stern look of a disapproving father]
    ● Trump: “Pretty please, Bibi, with sugar and cream on top!”
    ● Netanyahu: [no audible response, just the stern look of a disapproving father]

    Eli Lake and John Podhertz are handing out the J’accuses and the et tu’s too.

    Mooser,

    J’accuse, without the final s, but tu accuses (and the rest of the conjugation at the present tense : il accuse, nous accusons, vous accusez, ils accusent). French is not simple, and it’s therefore very precise. «And you» translates as «et toi», not et tu, in this phrasing meaning: and you, are you accusing, or «et toi, accuses-tu ?»

    Moi aussi, j’accuse ! (I accuse also!) À la prochaine… (See you…)

      I messed it up, huh? Well, thanks for the correction.
      At least you couldn’t see the shifty hangdog look which came over my face when I tried to speak French.
