The largest member of the North American Deer family, I can weigh 1500 lbs. and possess palmate antlers spreading up to six feet. Smaller animal or birds often lodge there. My natural enemies are hunters, and SUVs.

  • It turns out Jews are as stupid as everyone else
    • "I would attribute his brilliance not to the Jewish or any other specific component but to the syncretism itself."

      I always thought Einstein's work was the real thing, not a syncretic imitation.

    • "The solution to the Israeli Palestinian mess is in talking, engaging and working together."

      Oh yeah, wouldn't you be a big hit at the diplomatic receptions. "The Israeli Palestine mess"? Sounds like a natural disaster.

    • "Jewish excellence in America in science and mathematics has decreased markedly..."

      ...since the "Jewish Day Schools" were opened. And "Yonah", why would any Jew study math or science when there is so much Torah to learn? And so much Talmud to learn?

      And gee, haven't our Jewish math and science scores gone down about as much as anybody else's in the US?

    • "I may have something in common with them yet: Being a Jew minus the Jewishness."

      Wow, that must be something. I've never been able to get rid of mine. And if I did, what would replace it?

    • ." Perhaps in Bulgaria, I could have been an embassador or something of that nature"

      You would have made a superb embarassodor.

    • So those are the two jokes which apply to Obama joining the golf club? Ho-Kay!

    • "Regarding the humanities and a pseudo science like Freud, I believe there was a significant Jewish element in the contributions, the Jewish story telling, literacy, yearning for meritocracy, pushing with two elbows, were a serious contribution to the cultures of Europe in the late 19th and early 20th century and in Hollywood and radio/tv in america since the 1920’s."

      "Yonah" go post that anti-Semitic nonsense somewhere else.

    • "Israelis do some remarkable work."

      But what if there are not enough of them?

    • "Israel diplomacy as exemplified by the handshake between rabin and arafat has collapsed"

      "Collapsed", "Yonah"? It was murdered, along with Rabin, by your Israelis.

    • "As far as the golf club, all I can say is that groucho crystallized all there is to be said in two jokes."

      Which two jokes, "Yonah"? You don't specify.

    • "They had adopted the culture of the country they lived in"

      As opposed, of course, to the Jews who decided to remain exclusively within the Jewish culture.

    • "The list of brilliant Israeli mathematicians and physicists is breathtaking. "

      And you are gasping so hard, you couldn't link it.

  • Origins of a golden shower
    • “Trump is just not presidential material.”

      Absolutely not. The man has no philosophy worthy of the name. "RoHa", on the other hand, is full of it.

    • "Blackmail” was just the cover motivation for giving this crap (sorry, Miranda, I meant urine) an incredible new buzz."

      How would you compare it to the "buzz" created by the Obama-birth-certificate-scandal and the Hillary-e-mail-server-foundation-scandal?

    • "Putin has been aware of the dossier, so I’m not sure why he would have allowed it to be made as Trump has been a fan of his -"

      Think real hard, why would a guy like Putin do that to his good buddy?

  • Why Israel wants us to say 'terror'
    • "What were they doing on other people’s land?"

      "Echin" , she is noting the fact that the IDF cadets ran away.

    • "Because I consider the Zionist conglomeration to be outlaw under international anti-genocide law and its members (and under some circumstances its international supporters) to be liable to summary execution,"

      "Yoni" isn't that a little well, strict? Most of those involved have committed crimes which are usually punished with fines, and/or imprisonment, or even judicial supervision. In many cases expulsion might be best.

  • Democrats' sympathy for Israel has crashed nearly 25 percent in last nine months -- Pew
    • "About one in four Americans are evangelicals"

      That would be about 75 million people.

    • "If the issue is #8 on the foreign policy concerns list of the constituents, but #1 concern of donors, what’s a congressman to do?"

      "Yonah" is right. The Constitution requires Congressmen and Representatives to legislate strictly according to the financial position of donors.

  • How I got over the Milk-and-Honey-and-Chosen-People place
    • "Most religions have weird ideas about biology."

      Weird ideas don't matter too much. It's the weird practices which hurt.

    • "I’m sure Mooser and I could agree on that one."

      Huh? I sort of thought you were, with a name like "RoHa". Just sort of took it for granted.

    • "P.S. IMPORTANT NOTICE: Always use new Über-Xtreme Ziocaine Ultra™ responsibly. Do not attempt to drive or operate heavy equipment until you know how new Über-Xtreme Ziocaine Ultra™ will affect you."

      Naturally, this prohibition does not apply to the Caterpillar D-9.

    • I skip those, most of the time.

    • Judaism does have some disturbing attitudes toward the human body.

  • Mostly-Jewish golf club is roiled by a prospective member's stance on Israel-- Obama's
    • "Me? Is that some sort of ill-disguised ad hominem?"

      No, I assume you know your own best interests.

    • "3. The big difference is that the big guys (like Trump) are able to get non-recourse loans and are then not personally liable to pay the money back if their development goes tits up. They just turn over the keys to the bank and walk away."

      And now Trump will put that capability at the service of the United States Government! How could that not work out well for the US, and especially, you?

    • "The man may be an obnoxious boor but he’s no dummy and he became one of the great business success stories in this country"

      Uh, no, Trump went bankrupt, (running casinos!) over and over again, and parked the debt in very unscrupulous and possibly illegal ways. When no American bank would take on the "Donald risk" Trump went to European and possibly Russian sources for financing.
      Trump avoided collapse, but it's hardly in the mold of an American business success story

    • "mainly because he’s started, managed, and owned his own businesses"

      Trump inherited the real-estate business from his Dad.

  • Jared Kushner fired me over Israel ten years ago
    • "Jared Kushner wants to step right into his father-in-laws Presidential shoes"

      And what of nuclear-family loyalty? I doubt Jared will forget the basic lesson's imparted to him by his father on visiting days.

    • ".who will have the opportunity to bring about real change."

      The next four years may be one long ellipse.

    • "pw has a widely read blogsite [..] as are"

      A mercifully muted mutter.

    • "In his election night speech Donald Trump said he would be “fair”. I deeply hope he puts Fairness as his top priority in all his presidency’s deals."

      You bet! And since Trump is a new-born babe, without any record, who knows what he might do! Maybe the opposite of what he's done his whole life. If the Presidency can elevate an Obama to the Presidency, just think what it will do for Trump!

  • The truck attack that killed four Israeli soldiers in Jerusalem was not 'terrorism'
    • "The consequences of the attack in jerusalem has been already felt and like a skipping stone will continue to be as the end game approaches.p"

      So true, "mcohen", so true. Every day Israelis are waking up to the fact that the Zionist Government cannot protect them, and cannot deliver on its promises. And Jews outside of Israel are waking up to the abomination that Israel is. The "end game" is, as you say, on the way.

    • "O.C.D. code monkey."

      @ "Jackdaw": E.L.O. 'Don't Bring Me Down.'

    • There you go, "mcohen1"! You have had your comment answered by a Zionist, who finds it lacking. It's hard to get past a Zionist. They recognize anti-Zionist sentiments immediately.

    • "A ‘moral narcissist’."

      Not a problem either Zionism, or for that matter, Judaism suffers from.
      It's our complete absence of 'moral narcissism' which allows obviously interested Zionists to maintain the moral ascendancy of objective observers.

    • "Just yesterday someone proposed that Obama should be “hanged” for his “crimes”, without anyone objecting."

      No, I believe I made a reply with a disparaging "Spinal Tap" reference ("goes to eleven") which brought him up short.

    • How our tribe doth increase! We have a "mcohen" and now "mcohen1" has joined us.

    • "You teach ? Unbelievable!"

      I have a hard time telling "66" and "s" apart, too. "Jon s" is the 'teacher'. "Jon66" says he is a surgeon! (A very specialized surgeon, no doubt.)

      A "surgeon"? A Doctor? Who has great faith in the evidence obtained under torture? Gee, he's all ready for the IDF Medic Brigade.

    • "It’s an astounding feat of logical gymnastics that Hophmi is performing here before us"

      Well, "Hophmi" gets upset with Mondo.
      "Hophmi" has seen through to the underlying pathology of the site, and he doesn't like it one bit. And this is what "Hophmi" sees:

      "Phil has internalized anti-Jewish hatred, and like those secularist Jews in Europe who looked down upon their brethren or converted to Christianity to escape their Judaism, Phil adopts the classic tropes of the self-hater.
      Self-hatred is a disease. It is a sad disease borne of many generations of persecution, but it is a disease. And Phil is afflicted with it, as many Jews have been in the past. And it is usually the self-haters who cause the worst damage to the Jewish community, precisely because of how small it is."

      "Hophmi" is trying desperately to cauterize the locus of infection, lest all Mondo readers succumb to the "sad disease".
      As to the advisability of stressing the smallness and fragility of the Jewish community if you want to push an illegal settlement plan, and defy international law, "Hophmi" knows best, I guess.

    • "Dabakr" you are right. Everything is stacked against Israel. It's just not fair. The entire world against about a million settlers, and maybe about three million right-wing Israelis. How can anybody be against such small numbers of people?

    • "it’s just another reminder that BDS is not non-violent in any way."

      Okay "Hophmi" let's get down to brass tacks. How much Israeli stuff do I need to buy to stay off the "no-fly" list?

  • Israel-Palestine conflict could 'explode' under Donald Trump, Israel supporter warns
    • "When a guy gets a very lofty Nobel prize instead of being hanged in Nuremberg as promised by Justice Jackson,"

      This one goes to eleven! For that extra push over the cliff.

    • "2. In re: Obama’s “scandal free” White House. In my opinion, the list is so extensive that I don’t think we will ever know the true extent of the corruption"

      Oh you needn't go that far. Just the name of the worst two or three scandals will gave us the idea, and bring the rest flooding back to our memory.

  • There is no such thing as 'Progressive Except Palestine'
  • Remembering Revolutionary Yiddishland
    • "(roughly: to be a Jew means always running to God/ Even when you are fleeing)"

      Yes, I sometimes get the unfortunate impression we think we can run circles around God.

  • Israeli settlers attack Palestinian videographer of Hebron shooting in attempt to 'silence documentation and resistance'
  • 'Progressive' Defenders of the Racial State: Reflections on the Modern Language Association BDS vote
    • "I observed several Jewish progressive professors"

      "the hypocrisy of so many on the academic Left"

      I hope you wear safety glasses when you write comments, "Atlanta". The shards and splinters from the icons you smash could cause an injury.

  • Netanyahu has 'promise' from Trump to be 2nd foreign leader invited to White House
  • MLA votes against BDS, tables resolution blaming PA and Hamas for restrictions on Palestinian academic freedom (Updated)
  • Netanyahu has isolated Israel and is driving the US 'off a cliff into chaos' -- Lloyd Doggett
  • Getting away with murder: the Elor Azarya 'manslaughter' case
    • Gee, I wonder who is making a career out of the IDF now? I wonder who the Officers are?
      And gosh, wouldn't the 'chaplains' in the Army of a religious state have a lot of influence?

  • The mainstreaming of Palestinian genocide
    • "Touché !"

      I am against any interference with Israel's right to be it's natural size or population. It may take a little time, but it'll get there.

    • "But then that’s not surprising as zionists share the same racist roots."

      Yeah, but there was only about 90 million people in 1941 Germany.

    • ?" If a Jewish prisoner in Auschwitz had a chance to escape, would you advise him to wait until conditions improved?"

      So you figure a Palestinian has about the same chance as a Jewish prisoner in Auschwitz?

    • More and more Jewish people are turning away from Zionism. Israel has no way of compelling them to support the Zionist project. So for better or worse, the response may be silence- when support is demanded, and needed.

    • "As for the poor victimised Israelis they have this huge problem = how do we “disappear” over 6 million people within a COUNTRY THE SIZE OF WALES (sic)"

      Give it at least a little time. As the facts start sinking in for more Israelis, and those outside Israel, a surprising number of Israelis will disappear.

    • "Also know as “deep state” government."

      And you don't think Trump, will be easy meat for them? Trump will be nothing but a yes-sir to the deep state.

  • New poll shows sharp partisan divide on UN settlements resolution, and between Jews and African-Americans
    • "Data flows uphill from MW to Brisbane?"

      "Flows"? It doesn't "flow" my good "RoHa", it is tortuously driven, every step of the way! Gazillions of electrons trudging and singing "We Are Climbing Jacob's Ladder".

    • "Netanyahu cannot wait to “work”on Trump."

      Wait until it becomes apparent that Trump parrots the last person he talked to, if he likes what they say. And caves in personal confrontation.
      His Administration will be a game of musical seats.

    • "The whole notion of the settlements actually providing protection for the Jewish state is patently absurd!"

      Gee, "Yonah", can you tell us how the settlement building and infra-structure is financed, "Yonah"?

    • "This may be a local problem in whatever chain of thingies lies between my modem in Brisbane and the pulsating core of MW"

      That's because it's uphill most of the way.

    • "The lame duck out of the door, flipping of the bird on the way out, might not bother your average person of color democrat, but it certainly made an impression on Jews."

      So, approval for the settlements is the price of Jewish support for Democrats in the US?

      "The settlers present themselves as being the obstacle to a dangerous military situation"

      Really? Civilian apartments with women and children? As human shields? That's how the settlers make the military situation less dangerous?

  • 'Morality within the army is becoming less important among Israeli society': Azaria conviction reveals divisions across Israeli society
    • "How do you justify that, logically?"

      Perhaps he typed "scapegoat" when he meant to type 'martyr'. Spel-chek will do that sometimes.

  • After Israeli soldier is convicted of manslaughter, Times and Post portray case as isolated incident
    • "TheBaker assumes because he is a Zionist hypocrite who believes that Jews are entitled to do unto others acts of injustice and immorality they would not have others do unto them."

      Yup. Like I said, the poor hoodnik can't count.

    • During the Wiemar period, the German Army General Staff was at pains to make the Army appear to be a national German institution, not aligned with political parties. In reality, the Army had made it's choice long ago, it supported the Right. And ended up supporting you-know-who.

      "Above the dispute"? Doesn't the IDF enforce the illegal occupation?

    • "I wonder whether Zionists:"

      Can count? No, I don't think they can.

    • "eljay", you will have to excuse "dabakr". When you belong to the most populous people on earth, a people no one else has ever hurt, and who has always run things, well, you get a little insular, a little self centered.
      It might be different if anybody had ever hurt us and we knew what it is like.

    • ."We have one army, which is the basis of our existence. The soldiers of the IDF are our sons and daughters, and they need to remain above dispute.”

      ROTFL. Sounds very Wiemar!

  • In 'breathtaking' UN vote, Obama changed his policy on Israeli settlements, making them a war crime -- Finkelstein
    • "Apparently, the imperial warmongers are worried that Trump isn’t acceptable warrior material and needs to be coerced into action."

      I don't think they will have any problem with Trump.

    • "In your imagination the “Kremlin” has “cheering and jeering” sections?"

      And Trump's last words at his first press conference (which he cut short) were "You're fired!"
      I kid you not. "You're fired".

    • "Trump cannot say it for political reasons (as Keith pointed out.)"

      Except he just did, in the "news conference" (with his cabinet and staff providing a very Kremlin-like cheering-and-jeering section!)

      Can you say Trump is in a position to not be damaged by his ties to Russia? A 37% popularity rating, and suspicions of a treasonous connection with Russia (not to mention the immediate attempt to take benefits away) is no way to start out a Presidency. Unless your opponent was promising nuclear armeggedon in the first hundred days, of course.

      As Trump said today: "So there is a great spirit going on right now, a spirit that many people have told me they've never seen before, ever. We are going to create jobs, I said that I will be the greatest jobs producer that God ever created, and I mean that, I am going to work very hard on that"

    • "That’s not a rhetorical question."

      Neither are the questions asked of Trump at today's "news conference", for which he had no satisfactory answers.
      Trump cannot say he's not involved with the Russians, and he cannot say he didn't get Russian help during the campaign.
      After all, he publicly asked for it several times, as you remember.

      This seems to be the upshot of the presser: "Trump Says ‘I Think It Was Russia’ That Hacked the Democrats"

    • "Be sure to include all reparations Israel should pay the Palestinians, and some over for your trouble."

      Did it again. Wrote the opposite of what I meant. Should read "Be sure to include all reparations the Palestinianians should pay Israel, and some over for your trouble."

    • "Are you trying out various straw man formulations? Just curious…."

      I wish! Pretty embarrassing to look at a comment which says the opposite of what I meant to say.

    • "Anything he does will be much worse than what Hilary would have done"

      Gack! Exactly the opposite of what I meant to say. It should read, for whatever it's worth: "Anything he does will be much better than what Hillary (two "L's") would have done." Sorry.

    • "spells her first name with two “l”s everything would be just hunky dory."

      That's true, two "L's" in Hillary.

    • Gosh, "Keith", when I look at it that way, I have to admit you are right. Almost anything Trump does won't be as bad as what Hilary Clinton would have done.
      And that should be evident (to my discomfiture, I assure you) very soon after Trump is inaugurated. Anything he does will be much worse than what Hilary would have done.

    • "I am not now, and never have been, a Russian operative of any sort."

      Absolutely, "RoHa". Nobody could ever accuse you of gathering intelligence.

    • "What is to be expected is a People’s Tribunal, already empanelled"

      In America, we call that an "impeachment". It's provided for in the Constitution.

    • ." The article points out that Trump routinely mimics a specific physical disability (which is not the reporter’s disability) when he wishes to mock someone"

      Oh, that's allright, then. At least Trump doesn't allegory everything in terms of captivity and sexual dominance.

    • "This absolutely unprecedented campaign to delegitimize Trump"

      Oh, you bet, "unprecedented"! Especially after Trump did everything a person needs to do to establish his legitimacy for the Presidency, too.

    • "Well, now you’ve got one for President. And not even a high-level bullshitter.”

      Guess I shoulda said "we've" got one for President. Sorry.

    • "Not at all like Hillary who would escalate in Syria and confront Putin come Hell or high water"

      Okay, fair enough, that'll be the benchmark, and we'll see what happens.

    • "Still, this FAKE FACT– that Putin hacked the DNC, Podesta et al "

      More likely somebody paid no attention to their CC list, And somebody leaked, not hacked, leaked.

    • "will the notion that Putin interfered in the election become bi-partisan, widely believed conventional wisdom."

      Can Trump deny it? He can't, because he does not know he is not involved through his associates And his finances.

      Trump wants to play political hardball (Lock her up!)? He'll find out what hardball is.
      Or will Trump's complete and well-certified disclosure of his finances and disinvestment put all rumor's to rest?

    • "Who said they were surprised?"

      Very true. Trump is not a hard study.

    • "Echinococcus, you do read comments in a weird way."

      Through the wrong end of a telescope?

    • I can't understand how anybody can be surprised by Trump 'folding'.
      You've never known a bullshitter before?

      Well, now you've got one for President. And not even a high-level bullshitter.

    • "Here is the present day ‘Buck Turgidson’"

      Ashton Carter is no bundle of fun, either.

    • "when israel pulled out of gaza a lot of infrastrucure was handed over to is possible that the same process could take place in the west bank."

      Sure, "mcohen"! You just make sure to have an itemized bill ready, and present it when the handover takes place.
      Be sure to include all reparations Israel should pay the Palestinians, and some over for your trouble.

    • "warning of the danger when Trump gets his hands on the nuclear codes! And, of course, nuclear weapons are serious danger. But Trump more dangerous than Hillary? What universe do these people live in?"

      You are right, the uncertainty of Trump is way better than the nuclear war Hilary Clinton promised she would wage during her First One Hundred Seconds.

    • "By the way have you checked under your bed lately, I found two reds"

      F-40's? I thought, would have hoped, they stopped making them.

  • John Kerry picked the wrong timeline for the Jewish state
    • "Of course you, Mooser, weren’t meant."

      Oh, hardly matters, since I don't know what a "Shysterely person" is. Or is it better I shouldn't know?

    • "If you are shysterly-inclined,"

      Sorry, "Echin" you lost me there. Is a "shysterly" person some one who is chronically shy? Or is a "shyster" a name for a person who can be goaded into making a foolish and tragic bet?
      Or is there another meaning?

    • "Echin" what would be so wrong with trying to hold Israel to it's 1948 statehood agreement?
      The eventual result will be the Israelis saying it is unacceptable!

    • "I read/sensed..."

      One might say "RoHa" is the rhetorical Geritol of the comment section, his comments are a specific for irony-poor blood. One might say that.

    • "You, Mooser?"

      Me? I strive to be the right-on kind of Jew.

  • Love in the age of Trump

      "Yonah", if Jews have to "save their lives based upon the evil done to" others, you better hope Jewish women start having decuplets.

    • "The Olympic Committee should introduce a new sport in the form of “Mental Gymnastics”. You Zionists will walk away with the gold every time."

      I doubt it. The doping test will reveal they're hopped up on pilpuls.

    • "the Jewish urge to self rule in 1897 was natural and good."

      The Jewish urge to reject self-rule, knowing the history and religion of Judaism and Zionism, is natural and good.

    • "our commenter RoHa knows a lot more about grammer than i do"

      She was quite a lady in her day, and considered a very witty conversationalist.

    • "Now sod off."

      Is it all-right with you if Mr. Suarez continues to keep his book in publication, and give talks and stuff?
