From the rightwing Israeli news service Arutz Sheva. The unspeakable headline is theirs.

Chairman Avigdor Lieberman of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee said, Monday morning, that there’s no choice but to consider reconquering Gaza.

Interviewed on Kol Yisrael government radio following the launching of seven rockets at southern Israel, Sunday evening, the chairman of the Yisrael Beyteinuparty said that if Israel does not react now to the rocket fire, in two years, Hamas will have aircraft and hundreds of missiles that will reach Tel Aviv and even Netanya, to the north. The Air Force hit a number of Gaza targets following the rocket fire.

Lieberman said Hamas has no intention of accepting a Jewish presence in the land of Israel so Israel must return to Gaza and carry out a thorough cleaning.

“We are trying to talk in English to a population that only understands Arabic,” Seriously, what the HELL is this supposed to mean? Anyone? ”The IDF needs to wipe out a neighborhood in Gaza – warn the residents and then go into the neighborhood.” And once again: If ANY Muslim politician spoke in remotely similar terms about an Israeli city, the whole world would be expressing its outrage by now. Yet these obnoxious statements won’t… Read more »

Pesky litter. Get out the vacuum cleaner again. Rough taking care of one’s own living space. I always put off doing the dishes… I like the eating part, but not the dirty dishes.. Woe is me.

“Fascism may be defined as a form of political behavior marked by obsessive preoccupation with community decline, humiliation, or victimhood and by compensatory cults of unity, energy, and purity, in which a mass-based party of committed nationalist militants, working in uneasy but effective collaboration with trditional elites, abandons democratic liberties and pursues with redemptive violence and without ethical or legal restraint goals of internal cleansing and external expansion.” (Robert O Paxton, The Anatomy of Fascism,… Read more »
