And, was he reading Katie Miranda’s tips to pols on how to accessorize for Israel?

H/t Scott Roth. From his twitter feed, some gags:

    This is totally off-topic, but I love the argument made by Raymondo of

    here’s what Naftali Bennett, the economics minister and member of the extremist “Homeland” party, had to say about the agreement:

    “If five years from now a nuclear suitcase explodes in New York or Madrid, it will be because of the deal that was signed this morning.”

    What’s interesting about this prepared statement – it wasn’t just an off the cuff remark – is that Bennett doesn’t say who would be responsible for that nuclear suitcase. I mean, can we assume he means the Iranians will do it – or is he threatening the US with the specter of Israeli retaliation? Given the anger level in Tel Aviv right now, I think that’s a fair question.

    Concerning the accessiories, Perry of Texas may be weak in his knowledge of US departments, but he is definitely good on accessories
    unlike Kerry
    Rubio seems to have Miranda-approved “twin flags” pin
    And this is how politicians look when they do not have to pretend to smile

      first thing i thought (feared) after the deal with iran was reached was that izrael could so easily carry out a false flag op on American soil or target Americans abroad (they may even use a small nuke), and then feed US govt a load of crap intel claiming it was iran who did it…finally drawing us into war with iran like izrael’s wanted from the beginning and continues salivating over. kind of izrael’s psycho-sick way of getting what they want and saying about iran “told you so!”

      piotr: I guess I am behind these very interesting times. I never imagined a “suitcase bomb”. OTOH I have long supposed that Israel moved a (bigger) bomb into NYC (where I live) during the days that cargo ships were not being checked for bombs. The bomb that I imagine was then placed on a rooftop (perhaps among the A/C equipment) where it was ready to be used as a bomb and was — in fact — already used as blackmail. Raymondo seems to think this has happened in fact rather than in my fantasy — or that it could happen later.

      Oh, well, with AIPAC possibly on the decline, maybe Israel needs a more realistic threat.

      The threat with the suitcase bomb is simply ridiculous!
      After the collaps of the SU there are so many nuclear warheads gone missing, that if Iran wanted to hit the USA, they could long have purchased a couple of those.
      Netanyahu and the american zionists are grasping at the last straw to scare our nation. Pakistan is also ready to sell for the right offer.
      I seriously doubt that Iran would ever consider to nuke an US city, on the other hand I do not bet against an israeli false flag action to prove their point. Our security organisations, such as the CIA, NSA, FBI and great part of police are so infested with zionist agents that they would not stop such a crime, even if they had advance knowledge. It is a bummer when in a democratic land you cannot trust your own goverment and other organisations.

    ” a combination of socially conservative Orthodox and the affluent who oppose higher taxes, turned up its collective nose, supporting Republican Joe Lhota in droves and giving de Blasio the lowest percentage of the Jewish vote of any victorious mayoral candidate since 2001..

    The heavily Orthodox neighborhoods of Crown Heights and Borough Park were split between the candidates, while Lhota performed strongest in Manhattan Beach and Midwood in Brooklyn, Far Rockaway and Kew Gardens Hills in Queens, and the Upper East Side of Manhattan — all heavily Jewish neighborhoods. De Blasio won all areas of Williamsburg, where chasidic leaders endorsed him early in the campaign, while Lhota won the most heavily concentrated Jewish area of Staten Island.”

    Bill de Blasio is such a phony.

    The New York Mayor-elect is so progressive and racially blind… except when it comes to the Palestinians. But in fact, this is not so much an anti-Palestinian or anti-Arab prejudice as it is a craven and unprincipled subservience to hardened Zionist supremacists.

    America’s elites want to maintain two contradictory positions – on the one hand the principle that all races are equal and on the other hand that the interests of the Jewish state take precedence over the interests of the Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza, Israel-proper, and in the refugee camps.

      Get this into your head – what some here call “Hardened Zionist supremacists” are the majority of Jews. Absolute majority of Jews in the world care about Israel and are Zionists.

        You mean the problem is far greater than we thought.I guess we will all have to work just a tad harder to see an end to Zionism and all it,s vile activities.

        Interesting comment fnlevit – it’s the type of remark I’d expect from a rabid antisemite. Are you one?

      “The New York Mayor-elect is so progressive and racially blind… except when it comes to the Palestinians.”

      Well, whether he is or not, a significant percentage of the population of that area fully supports the racist ideology of zionism, so damning the Palestinians is the cost of governing these people.

    I am not a flag waving kind of guy, but if the mayor of NY meets with a foreign dignitary then maybe protocol should call for the flag of the US also being shown in the photo along with a foreign flag. This just sends the wrong message. What country does de Balsio represent here?

      ToivoS: He’s not a diplomat “representing” the USA or anything else, not even NYC. He’s a tourist being given a red-carpet treatment. Hence no American flag necessary. But the absence noted.

      The absence of the US flag is all too symbolic. I fear it speaks the truth. Allegiance to Israel under Netanyahu’s regime is indeed traitorous.

      BTW, Phil– that should be ET tu.

        Not really, look at my last photo, Peres in South Korea, in front of Korean flag and Far Eastern decoration evoking an imperial palace (yellow color relates to empire). No blue speck in sight, Peres looks bewildered, his host, sardonic. This is high new alliances of Israel may look like (some commentators there demand them. Good luck!).

        The USA is the only superpower on this globe, at least up to now, and the kind hand that feeds and protects you.
        Israel is a fly …. on the map, not the same class, mind you.

    When the Park Slope Co-op was debating support for BDS, guess which side de Blasio supported?
