Middle East

Yesterday, Israeli police recommended indicting Benjamin Netanyahu in two separate corruption investigations that have been dogging the Prime Minister for years. Last February, Jonathan Cook wrote for Mondoweiss that the scandals “shine a rare light on the corrupt nexus between Israel’s business, political and media worlds, compounded by the perverse influence of overseas Jewish money.”

    A very good cartoon, thanks :) !!

    Netanyahu with his corruption allegations were in the news in Finland and Denmark too yesterday and the comment which came with it was something like: “And he has no intention to resign..”

    “The only democracy in the Middle East” shows its true face again.

    In the poem “Sheaf Tosser” (Eric Rolls), the exhausted labourer contemplates tossing a sheaf in such a way that the foreman would be knocked down and smothered under the sheaves.

    And then adds “But there’d soon come another, and I’d still toss sheaves.”

    (Quotation is from memory. I last read the poem 55 years ago, so it may not be accurate.)

    Bless Latuff. His prolific output is always on target, funny and accurate in caricature.

    I “love” Bibi (a.k.a. Nimrod; a.k.a. Pomponius Ego)! Who other than Bibi could garner worldwide fame and prestige based chiefly on his love for foxhunting? [ The Zionist Book of Books defines Vulpus vulpus as: the Arab/Persian “fox,” one of the most widely distributed members of the CARNIVORA, being present across the entire Northern Hemisphere but especially prevalent in the Middle East.]

    At a time when foxhunting appears to be returning to the British countryside, you may not have known that the use of scenthounds to track prey dates back 2000-3000 BCE and originated in Assyria and ancient Egypt, or that in 2004 British MPs voted by a majority of 356 to 166 to ban the hunting of mammals with dogs (the Hunting Act) in England and Wales. The Act came into effect in 2005. Foxhunting was banned in Scotland in 2002.

    Could something as negligible as an indictment for charges of corruption tarnish the near universal popularity of Bibi?

    They considered getting Trump for unauthorized acts of war against Syria but it felt inappropriate.
