  • Clinton's date to pander at AIPAC leaves an opening for Sanders, you'd think
    • There is only one sure way to prevent Trump from winning in November, and that's for Bill Kristol to predict Trump will win. Kristol's legacy is and will always be: Wrong about more issues more times in more ways than anyone else, period! I'm confident this trend will continue unabated.

  • Trump wasn't anti-Semitic
    • "Joe and Mika going ballistic." Mika can be such a ditz sometimes. It's almost shocking to realize that her father is Zbigniew Brzezinski. In 2008 Zbig was on the show and Joe started spouting his ignorance about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Zbig looked at him with amazement and said: "Your stunningly superficial knowledge of what went on makes it embarrassing to listen to you." Poor Mika; you could see her making a slow slide in her seat. You can see the clip on youtube.

      As for Trump's "I don't need your money...." that must have been a bucket of ice to everyone's face, because every politician comes before a wealthy Jewish crowd with only one plea: I. Want. Your. Money.

      I saw clips of his talk. Trump felt very comfortable because he was talking to many of the same people that he's done business with for decades: tough-talking, hard-negotiating business people who just happen to be Jewish. Plus, he's probably richer than all of them. When has a candidate for any national political office been richer than his audience, including this one?

      Trump's verbal and physical mannerisms when he speaks are very New Yawk, right. (That's not a question, it's a way of speaking.) So this crowd, most with New York roots if not residency, understood that.

      Finally, Trump probably thinks Sheldon Adelson is a sh&t bag anyway, so he wasn't going to take any crap from this crowd., including their money.

  • Why do Muslims object to depictions of their prophet?
    • Someone may have already mentioned this, but op-ed in NYT Tuesday by a Muslim author answer's the point of Phil's piece quite nicely, entitled "Islam's Problem with Blasphemy."

  • Mohyeldin's boss at NBC rallied 'Jewish passion' for Israel when 'it is physically threatened'
    • So, who's now reporting in Israel for CNN? None other than former Jerusalem Post reporter and former AIPAC functionary Wolf Blitzer. We should expect objective and balanced reporting now, no doubt.

  • 'Forward' editor says Presbyterian vote was anti-Semitic
    • Eisner is another example of the huge ethical blindspot possessed by liberal Zionist Jews who are both unwilling and unable to see past the Green Line or over the Separation Wall to the human misery suffered by Palestinians under the military occupation of the state of Israel for almost 50 years. Why is that so difficult?

  • Notice who is welcoming the Pope, and who is outraged
    • "Those who hunger and thirst after rightousness"

      The correct translation of the word "rightousness" in Jesus's Sermon on the Mount is s "doing what is right", or, simply, "justice." The Catholic translation of the New Testament has correctly used the word "justice." Protestant translations have only recently moved from "rightousness" which was interpreted as holiness or piety, to the correct meaning.

      This difference might explain why liberation theology was and continues to be strong in predominately Catholic Latin America, led by priests who hungered (and died) for justice causes among the poor. A Latin American Catholic cleric like Pope Francis understands this.

  • UK's Jewish leadership sacrifices all relevance with 'Jewish manifesto' for EU elections
    • The manifesto recalls the words of the rabbi about 2000 years ago who said "You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye."

  • 'Poof' -- Kerry blames Israel for breakdown of talks (Updated)
    • "If Obama loses the Senate in November"

      If Republicans gain control of the Senate (and continue to control the House), it won't matter what Obama does with his last two years. During that time the Israelis will move vigorously to add significantly more settlements in the West Bank, creating new facts on the ground by 2016. Furthermore, it won't matter if Hillary or a Repub moves into the White House. Greater Israel will have been achieved. The debate will have moved from freezing the settlements to freezing Israeli transfer of Palestinians out of the West Bank.

  • Not an April Fool's joke: U.S. weighs releasing Pollard to keep Israelis at negotiating table
    • "1. The Palestinians will agree to extend the negotiations for a year, until 2015."

      Anti-two state forces in Israel undoubtedly sense that Republicans will take control of the Senate in the November mid-term elections. (They control the House for the foreseeable future.) If that happens, it's a pedal- to- the- metal dash to Greater Israel Land for the next two years, and a furious drive to repopulate the West Bank with Israelis. And if a Republican is elected president in 2016, particularly one of those that participated in the Sheldon fallatio-fest in Las Vegas last weekend, or if Hillary wins, there will be no stopping the Israelis from transferring Palestinians completely out of the West Bank.

  • Israel lobby group compiles secret dossiers on pro-Palestinian speakers
