Caroline Glick melts down with European diplomats

News
on 173 Comments

The following lecture by Caroline Glick meted out to Danish Ambassador Jesper Vahr at the Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference last Thursday is simultaneously so over the top and so typical of apologists for Israel that it deserves wide attention.

Glick, the deputy managing editor of the Jerusalem Post, is a popular right wing public figure in Israel and abroad. Her fans can’t get enough of her, note the uploader of the video (below) thinks she’s “brilliant” and you can hear audience members cheering her on as she berates Ambassador Vahr in this clip. She got a lot of airtime in The New Yorker last month.

As a longtime Glick-watcher I have developed a deep appreciation for her mobile facial expressions and body language. There’s never any doubt how much disdain she has for her adversaries. Whether it’s a good tactic for dealing with diplomats, though– well, judge for yourself.

After Ambassador Jesper Vahr explains why Europe holds Israel to a different standard than Syria, Palestine or other countries in the Middle East– Israel claims to be a western democracy, it relies on support from the west– Glick squirms in her seat barely able to contain herself. When it’s her turn, she lifts herself off her seat as she launches the first assault:

Delivering first blow Glitch lifts herself out of her seat

Delivering first blow Glitch lifts herself out of her seat

She strokes the arm of her chair, barely controlling her angst:

 I think that this patronizing attitude towards us that we should be happy that you have a separate standard for-for Israel is-is, uh, is really- I’m sorry- is a statement of contempt for our intelligence.

(audience applause)

The chair arm gets a slight reprieve at the sound of applause from the audience (her fans love her) but the rubbing soon intensifies into a deep massage.

“Um-I-ah-I-I-I-I consider it to be an obsession, I consider Europe’s keen interest in the Middle East, specifically Israel, to be an obsession and it’s an obsession that Jews have seen from Europeans from the time of Jesus, and ah, and we know what it is.

So it’s European anti-Semitism driving the criticism of the occupation! Now Glick’s face takes on a grave expression, lest one risk appearing not to take European history seriously:

Grave expression

Grave expression

Then flipping her hand back and forth, she dismisses any illusion of a “common, common culture” between Europe and Israel, before launching into her own take on international law. Israel respects international law whereas Europe “makes it up”. How? Well, rebuilding Gaza after last summer’s slaughter is against international law and tantamount to supporting terrorism.

And there is a binding UN resolution, chapter 7 from 2001 — 1373, that bars every single UN member nation from funding or otherwise supporting in any way terrorist organizations, and you guys you’re funneling billions of Euros into rebuilding terrorist controlled Gaza.

(loud applause)

This is in contravention of binding international law that you signed on to.

This diatribe, during a conference for diplomats no less, has been lauded in the press by fans of Israel. Numerous sites have shown the video with nothing but praise for Glick as she snarls, berates, whines and otherwise “rips him [Vahr] apart.” This is typical Glick, There’s nothing unique about her delivery that day. This is a face of Israel that clearly many people are proud of. And a voice put forward at important conferences.

 

Binding resolution

There is a binding UN resolution

See the fixed downward glance, the hardened jawline, above?

What follow are screenshots of her amazingly mobile face just seconds apart as Glick discusses sanctions against the illegal settlement expansion, or in her words “there’s imaginary international law, imaginary international law that says you are required to, required to sanction Jewish projects from Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria”:

"Imaginary international law"

Imaginary international law”

"Imaginary international law"

imaginary international law”

"required to sanction Jewish projects"

required to sanction Jewish projects”

"required to sanction  Jewish projects"

“required to sanction Jewish projects”

She reaches her high C: “There is no such binding law. You guys are funding settlements in Western Sahara. You’re funding them directly.”

"You're funding them directly"

“You’re funding them directly”

"You're funding them directly"

“You’re funding them directly”

It is interesting that this kind of performance has now become a mainstay of Israel’s international diplomacy: the accusatory whine.

Glick makes her case

Glick makes her case

Now comes her diagnosis of Europe’s antisemitism as a form of obsessive compulsive disorder:

So this is not a double standard, this is a singular standard for Israel. It’s not about international law, it’s about an obsessive compulsive need to constantly pick at the Jewish state. And no I don’t want to be proud that you’re looking at us in a different standard from our neighbors because you’re not looking at them as human beings. What you’re saying is they are objects.

they are objects

“What you’re saying is they are objects”

Is there any awareness on her part that the U.S. and Europe have let Israel slide on the settlements and occupation for nearly 50 years. Are we to keep shoveling money at the Israelis and shut up?
Bringing the Debate to You
Now here comes the big reveal. It’s Israel that actually cares about the lives of Palestinians.

The only actor in this entire region, is the people they are trying to annihilate. And the only people who are supposed to be judged by our actions, and always poorly, are the people who are doing everything possible, more than Europe – right – more than the United States more than anybody in order to protect the lives of the Palestinians.

So with all due respect, and I would love it if I could have more respect for Europe, but your treatment of Israel, your singular standard, your obsessive compulsive need to constantly pick..

 

"your singular standard"

“your singular standard”

 

"your obsessive compulsive need"

“your obsessive compulsive need”

 

If I had a dollar for every screen shot I’ve taken of Glick’s arias– I mean speeches– over the years, I could take my sisters out to a fancy diner, or two. I just trashed a whole file of them a couple weeks ago, wondering what on earth I would ever do with them. But I can’t help it, I am back to my old habits.

These screen shots are taken from video shot at the Europe-Israel panel during the Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference in Jerusalem last Thursday.

      • JusticeForPalestine on December 15, 2014, 10:08 pm

        I’M sorry, but it’s an insult to MY intelligence for Glick to assert that any person with the intelligence of a small appliance light bulb should believe her claims that Israel follows international law. Specifically, which law is she referring to? The nuclear nonproliferation treaty? The Geneva accords? How many decades’ worth of security council resolutions?

        She’s repulsive. More precisely, she is everything she accuses others of being.

    • ritzl on December 15, 2014, 7:13 pm

      yech (y), argh (a), blech (b), yab could/should be a universal designator of Glick’s kind of “stuff.”

    • Ellen on December 16, 2014, 2:12 am

      Revolting on many levels. Yes, bleachhhhh!

      She kept repeating, “your excessive, compulsive need to constantly pick at the Jewish state…”

      Over and over again she said that. Over the top and primitive.

      So if Europe has this pathological need, according to Glick, why doesn’t Israel just completely cut relations with Europe? Issue solved.

      • ritzl on December 16, 2014, 2:32 am

        “So if Europe has this pathological need, according to Glick, why doesn’t Israel just completely cut relations with Europe? Issue solved.

        Yeah really, Ellen.

        “Give us your money [and UNSC veto], back off, and STFU!” would seem to be the [increasingly public] mantra of the Israeli ruling elite.

        I’ll never understand how a nothing country of 7M people, 5000 miles from anywhere, can make that claim. And more remarkably, make it stick. And even more remarkably, make it stick for generations.

        Someday someone will explain it to us all.

      Greetings,
      Whatever the Zio right wing political parties do, they always get a Forum.
      The antics of this woman show that she should have taken some posing lessons from Adolf, Goebbels or McCarty.
      She is rude, crude & socially unattractive.
      Ironically her surname Glick is yiddisch for German Glück = Happiness.
      What was the Intention of those that placed her as the wicked witch pantomine of the show? I’ll take a quess:To bring on de Diklum of Heuristics & Syncretism to further their Zio Nazi Fairly Tales of grandeur while they reap the fruits of de ME. They eternally keep us preoccupied with their cau cau & we go on being distracted.
      ziusudra
      PS We are simply fascinated by the grandeur of choreographed grotesquerie, after all it is a human form of chimpansee expression, isn’t it? She would sell out de house down on Mulberry St. or up in de Jewish Alps.

    • on December 16, 2014, 8:07 am

      The amazing display of projection. She, an American, has moved to and now represents/apologizes for Israel…but it is the non Jews of Europe who are obsessed with Israel. Israel routinely ignores international law and any agreements she makes yet still expects tons of aid from Europe and America…but is the victim of, not a beneficiary of, a double standard!

      So filled with hatred and resentment of those they shakedown and depend upon.

      All the while cheered on by her fellow travelers.

        >> Giles @ December 16, 2014, 8:07 am

        She is a typical – and typically hypocritical – Zio-supremacist. She defends…
        – past and ON-GOING (war) crimes committed by Zio-supremacist Jews like her; and
        – Jewish supremacism in a supremacist “Jewish State”,
        …as though these are all good and moral things.

        But if she were being treated the same way Palestinians have been treated by people like her for over 60 years, she’d be screaming for justice and accountability.

        She’d also be screaming anti-Semitism and Holocaust which, interestingly, is what Zio-supremacists like her scream even as they continue, with impunity, to commit acts of injustice and immorality against non-Jews.

      • on December 16, 2014, 10:27 am

        A part of me feels very sorry for what her community had done to her and others. Raised from birth to hate and resent the “Other”, to believe you have personally suffered from thousands of years of victimization at the hands of the Other for no reason at all except you are Jewish. Or maybe because everyone else in the world is obsessed with and jealous of Jews.

        Let’s face it, you get fed this sort of stuff from birth and you are helpless to see thru it.

        On the other hand, these Zionists do have so much power and are inflicting such misery on so many people it is hard not to despise them.

      Greetings again Dear Annie,
      Thanks for talking to & answering me.
      I will , in the future, place any foreign or non daily terms in English also.
      My critique was of Ms. Glick of her accusations & pantomine as :
      Heuristics, inventing of ideas , Syncreatism, borrowing of ideas as their own and using
      them in Diklum, say, & repeat on of said Heuristics & Sycreatism until they
      are accepted as true Example: B. Gurion, (If we don’t fight) They’ll throw us into
      the sea! World Jewry has repeated this term only as: The Palestinians will throw
      us into the sea!

    I don’t like Glick either, Annie, but I would never write a misogynistic post about her looks.

    • annie on December 15, 2014, 7:44 pm

      how is it misogynistic? “snarls, berates, whines”. How else would you describe her demeanor? it’s pretty out there, she’s not subtle or anything. and she sure as heck knows how to dish it out, no holds barred. it would be one thing if she was disadvantaged in some way but she is not, she is privileged and in a position of power. i feel sorry for these panelists.

      i said nothing about her as a woman per se. she’s vicious but men can be vicious too. she’s puts herself out there to this extreme degree, don’t expect anyone to stay silent out of respect just because she’s a woman. it’s not like i punched her in the face and it’s not like i have not taken men to task over similar kind of behavior.

      • Teapot on December 15, 2014, 9:51 pm

        I guess there is this misogynistic tendency to attack female politicians over their looks instead of concentrating on their actions and words. Fact is, men hardly ever get scrutinized for their outward appearance the way women do.

        However, I didn’t interpret your analysis of Glick’s speech as misogynistic at all. Her excessive use of body language is hard to overlook. The contents of her speech are total BS, but she makes it even more worse with her aggressive demeanor. She comes over as incredibly rude here, and her over-aggressiveness seems very inappropriate for a “civil” debate. (Or does “civility” only apply to anti-Zionist arguments?)

      • jd65 on December 15, 2014, 11:13 pm

        Excellent article Annie. However, I slightly disagree w/ you when you write that Glick’s “mobile facial expressions and body language…,” show “…how much disdain she has for her adversaries.” I’d agree that it does show that, but I feel that more importantly it shows her psychic split. Her internal conflict is wayyyyyyyyy worse than even your garden variety “liberal Zionist.” And their’s is pretty huge on average already. Though I’m not a fan of analyzing people psychologically in general, I honestly believe there’s no possible way that under all her sound and fury, deep down under the massive fortress of paranoid hysteria she’s built into her mind and into Israel’s culture, way under in the dark she feels the truth buried beneath the lies. Her freakish mode of communication you observe is a result of her inner conflict. And it is epic. She’s in a terrible struggle w/ herself and it manifests itself in ways which are audible and visible when she talks about Palestine. By the way, I hate new-agey jargon like “inner conflict,” etc… But w/ Glick there’s no getting around it. She’s a freak show and it’s obvious. Pamela Geller on acid and cocaine…

        For anyone interested in some other info/writing on Glick, below is an excerpt I wrote a couple years ago from my never-to-be-finished-published book on Palestine (the video referred to below is the grotesquely offensive “We Con The World” video about the Mavi Marmara):

        “So not only did the Israeli government distribute and praise a tasteless video mocking the freshly murdered activists, but its army edited radio transmissions to paint these same activists as anti-Semitic when they didn’t even know who was speaking in the transmissions, and they also claimed these activists were the most reviled terrorists in the world (al-Qaeda) when they knew no such thing. When you look this stuff in the eye it’s quite unbelievable that it is truly happening.

        The 2nd fact that disallows the shrugging off of this video was that it was produced by Caroline Glick. Glick is a Senior Middle East Fellow at the neo-conservative D.C. think-tank Center for Security Policy, has served as assistant foreign policy advisor to Netanyahu, and most importantly is the deputy managing editor for The Jerusalem Post and a journalist for the right-wing Israeli newspaper Makor Rishon whose editor in-chief, Uri Elizur, is a former chief of staff for Netanyahu. Glick and the Israeli government’s press arm felt it was appropriate to mock the massacred while their bodies were nearly still warm. How she still holds any position at The Jerusalem Post or Makor Rishon is a testament to the pervasive stranglehold anti-Palestinian ideology has over Israeli culture and institutions. No journalist would remain in such high profile (and likely very lucrative) positions in the U.S. newspaper establishment after producing such blatantly offensive and partisan trash. Glick remaining the deputy managing editor of The Jerusalem Post is like Pamela Geller becoming the Washington Post’s Jerusalem Bureau Chief. In a word: scary.

        To open her speech at the 2013 Jerusalem Post annual conference held at the Marriot Marquis in New York City, Glick again showed off her polished comedic skills by stating through a smirk “I decided not to talk about Iran because I don’t think there’s anything more to say except bombs away.” The crowd response to this quip was a mix of laughter, cheers and applause. This type of ultra-hawk rhetoric grants Glick cache in the U.S. neo-conservative community. Her position as a “fellow” at Washington’s Center for Security Policy also allows her to fundraise for her Israeli satiric video production company LatmaTV: “Latma… is an initiative of the Center for Security Policy in Washington.”[xxxiv] So a major think-tank in Washington, ostensibly devoted to security issues facing the United States, spends some its time and energy initiating and indirectly funding an ultra-right, Islamophobic Israeli satiric video enterprise led by Glick which produces content that mocks murdered activists. I feel safer already.

        Here’s the Glick/Krauthammer/Israeli line on the Mavi Marmara summarized: The side suffering all of the casualties, the side which had comparatively no weapons or training, the side with widely transparent and publicized objectives which are supported by nearly the entire world, the side which killed not one person during the event: they are the aggressors. While the side which inflicted all nine of the casualties (many by close range shots to the head), the side which was armed with live guns and trained by nearly the most powerful army in the world, the side which itself suffered a total of zero casualties during the event, this is the side which acted in self-defense. This is the logic that was put out for the masses. It’s also the line of reasoning not refuted by the Obama administration. Since all U.S. administrations essentially support Israeli policy and rhetoric by either actively confirming, or simply not refuting it, Obama has tacitly adopted this stance toward the Mavi Marmara.

        Three years after the Mavi Marmara, Ali Abunimah writes of the ongoing blockade imposed on Gaza in his article titled simply Yes, Gaza is still under siege. He writes of the daily electricity blackouts through much of Gaza, the severe lack of freedom of movement in and out of Gaza, the unnecessary and inadequate tunnel economy created by the conditions imposed by Israel, the suffocation of academics in Gaza, etc etc etc…[xxxv]

        Obama’s inaction, as many previous U.S. presidents, allows the occupation to push forward of its own inertia. The absurd ongoing free pass he extends to Israel reminds me of a classic piece by the late great Gil Scott-Heron titled We Beg Your Pardon. To borrow a phrase from Scott-Heron, Obama could be seen as the current incarnation of his “Oatmeal Man.” But instead of Scott-Heron’s indictment of Gerald Ford’s pardon of Nixon, Obama is just another U.S. president handing out pardons to Israel:

        “We beg your pardon America
        because we have an understanding of karma
        What goes around, comes around
        And we beg your pardon for all of the lies and all of the people who’ve been ruined and who look forward
        to next year because they can’t stand to look at this one
        We beg your pardon America because
        the pardon you gave this time was not yours to give.”[xxxvi]

        i found it intriguing she was accusing others (in this case, lots of others) of a serious malady in which she so obviously and transparently demonstrated symptoms of that same affliction. albeit, i am not a physician nor qualified to diagnose her condition, much less report on it. but to dangle that term (actually she did a more than merely dangle it), to make such a concise accusation (read the caption under the last photo for those were her exact words during that expression) using that exact phrasing almost demands the listener, subconsciously at a minimum, to consider the implication, wrt the accuser.

        plus, as i eluded to in my article i have watched several of her videos in the past. mostly, overall, i think it’s very (extremely) sad.

      • CigarGod on December 16, 2014, 9:59 am

        Good job, annie.
        You nailed it.
        This is a common, easily recognizable characteristic of zionists everywhere.
        I call it “the junk yard dog” syndrome.
        I hope it is employed to intimidate rather than persuade…if not…then they are all insane.

      • hophmi on December 17, 2014, 11:22 am

        “How else would you describe her demeanor?”

        She’s an angry lady, Annie. I’m sure she’s lost a number of friends and family to terrorism, as most Israelis have, and she obviously is an emotional person. She’s like an Ann Coulter-type figure in Israel. You love the easy targets. And you have a huge blind spot here. If a European said to a Palestinian version of Caroline Glick that what the Palestinians really needed to do was to stop throwing rocks, you’d get the same response. It’s arrogant. It’s patronizing. And it’s sadly typical of European diplomacy.

        Here’s another angry lady: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEy6sgKD75w

        And another: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T64JIgs5C6k

        It’s a conflict. You know as well as I do that for every Caroline Glick video, there are one hundred of Israelis having perfectly calm discussions with diplomats and others, whether they agree with them or not.

        “it would be one thing if she was disadvantaged in some way but she is not, she is privileged and in a position of power. ”

        What privilege? Is Israel a large, rich state in the middle of Scandinavia? Do its people live in complete security like the Danes do? In the Danish diplomat-Caroline Glick discussion, it’s the Dane who is in the privileged position (and who has some responsibility to act with decorum and restraint), and not Caroline, the ultraconservative Jerusalem Post columnist who has never hidden her vitriol or her contempt for effete Westerners who would dictate policy to Israel.

        “i said nothing about her as a woman per se”

        You obsessively save screenshots of her and talk about her face. I think you’re being misogynistic; but at the very least, you’re being juvenile.

      • annie on December 17, 2014, 1:41 pm

        first of all, i didn’t discuss her face once (i discussed her expressions which are a reflection of her mind) and everyone knows when it is relaxed she is an attractive woman as is clear by just visiting her twitter feed or seeing any of her bio photos.

        a rally at a school and a disgruntled activist or your memri video of a 92 year old woman is a completely different setting/context than “diplomatic” conference. which reminds me of something i read yesterday. http://www.haaretz.com/weekend/magazine/former-israeli-ambassador-speaks-his-mind-about-his-boss-avigdor-lieberman-1.401828

        my father [Zeev Shek] belonged to the generation of diplomats who only dreamed of making peace with our neighbors; they understood that this was the mission of Israeli diplomacy. That is the meta-idea of diplomacy: to improve relations between countries, and not to spoil them.

        if one (jpost) is going to host a conference specifically on and for diplomats, to put forward a hostile employee in a coveted position on a panel that does what any normal person would consider being the very opposite of diplomatic than they should expect criticism. maybe they don’t understand what the meaning of diplomatic is. this is analogous to hosting a formal tea party w/formal invitations and when the guests show up one of the hostess is attired in her old robe and worn out slippers. to throw a conference for and about diplomacy and treat the guests and diplomats to this kind of rhetoric and presentation is the antithesis of diplomacy. they stuck a bulldog on them. get it? was the whole premise of the conference a charade? to get them there in order to abuse them? she wasn’t a member of the audience, she was on a panel and because she’s a managing editor of the post she represented the establishment she works for and there was not a trace of ‘diplomatic’ in her rhetoric or presentation from what i can see here hops.

        and of course she is privileged. anyone who has a regular column in a mainstream publication with wide readership is privileged. privileged doesn’t always mean financially. it means the ptb have allowed one a soapbox with which to enhance ones visions and opinions to a large wide ranging audience. that’s a position of power others do not have. different but similar to the way i have been granted a privileged position by being able to post articles here where what i see is distributed to a larger audience. of course it is nothing like the post but in our world it’s a lot.

        i took the screenshots to enhance and make clear what i see when i encounter her on video. she’s rare bird in that her extreme expressions portray her contempt. that’s somewhat rare for public figures and i am fascinated by this quality about her as well as many of her extreme viewpoints.

        She’s an angry lady, Annie.

        then why, pray tell, would the jerusalem post put her on a panel with ambassadors at a diplomatic conference?

      • hophmi on December 17, 2014, 1:55 pm

        “if one (jpost) is going to host a conference specifically on and for diplomats, to put forward a hostile employee in a coveted position on a panel that does what any normal person would consider being the very opposite of diplomatic than they should expect criticism. ”

        I continue to find it highly ironic that you’re complaining about the civility of participants on a panel.

        “to throw a conference for and about diplomacy and treat the guests and diplomats to this kind of rhetoric and presentation is the antithesis of diplomacy. ”

        She’s not a diplomat, Annie. The other guy is. She’s an op-ed writer. She doesn’t owe any duty of diplomacy.

        “and because she’s a managing editor of the post she represented the establishment she works for and there was not a trace of diplomatic in her presentation and participation from what i can see here hops.”

        Again, she doesn’t have a duty to be diplomatic, and Israelis are plain spoken people. They’re not into all of this protocol.

        “and of course she is privileged. anyone who has a regular column and a mainstream publication with wide readership is privileged.”

        Is that privileged? Are Palestinians with widely read columns in Al-Hayat al-Jedida privileged?

        “i took the screenshots to enhance and make clear what i see when i encounter her on video. she’s rare bird in that her extreme expressions portray her contempt. that’s somewhat rare for public figures and i am fascinated by this quality about her as well as many of her extreme viewpoints.”

        Yes, she wears her heart on her sleeve, no question.

        you’re right, she doesn’t. it begs the question then why the jerusalem post would choose to include her as one of only 5 participants in this important panel at the Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference. certainly they must have someone in their employ familiar with israel’s relationship with europe who could provide both challenging and provocative engagement AND be diplomatic at the same time? since they’re billing this thing as a Diplomatic Conference? no?

        Are Palestinians with widely read columns in Al-Hayat al-Jedida privileged?

        in the arena of Al-Hayat’s influence, absolutely.

        also, i’m sort of over discussing this w/you hops. you can have the last word.

        “I’m sure she’s lost a number of friends and family to terrorism, as most Israelis have”

        So “most Israelis” (2 or 3 million?) have “lost a number of friends and family to terrorism” (okay, make it 3 people. That’s like 6 to 9 million people Hophmi.)

        So the Israelis have lost well over 5 million people to terrorism! Okay, so the real number might be slightly lower.

      • Mooser on December 17, 2014, 11:27 pm

        ” Do its people live in complete security like the Danes do?”

        Well, Hophmi, if you are going to colonise and militarily occupy lands that isn’t yours, you’ve got to expect some insecurity, don’t you think?

        Why don’t the Israelis stay in their own borders, or make arrangements to annex some of those lands. Hey, plebiscite, everybody, all the Palestinians there, want to be Israelis, and boom, it’s done. Now, what’s wrong with that, all those voters and taxpayers added to Israeli citizens?

I don’t get the opportunity (thank God) to watch someone become completely unglued and unhinged that isn’t in a horror movie or the late Joan Rivers (of wretched memory). The look on her face when she’s insisting that Israel cares about the Palestinian’s more than anyone else is really disturbing and frightening and I’m pretty sure that even with only audio her grimace would have blasted right through. Watching her in that chair made me realize that chair saved the ambassador’s life. If she would have been standing she would have lunged at him . (She totally grosses me out, sorry.) Her groping/stroking the chair seemed to be the only thing that kept her from going all Texas Chainsaw Massacre on him. Maybe that chair was specifically made for her and each time she groped/stroked/grimaced, maybe she was getting little electrical shocks to make her stay in place. Yikes, what a disgusting person. And the incessant whining. And boy she strikes a nerve with her homegirls and boys.

      she’s talking to an ambassador at a public diplomatic forum. she’s being incredibly rude and that’s not the way a civilized person treats a guest in your country.

      her own publication invited (summoned) the colomist to an event. she’s accusing him and a whole continent of being racist, completely dismissing his point as being basically ludicrous and lambasting him. the chances he would bark back with the same degree of venom is so far fetched as to be unimaginable.

      she is a public speaker and a pundit and she must be aware of her appeal, which by the way her fans adore! this is a face of israeli diplomacy. and this is also very typical of the demeanor of many israel supporters all over the internet.

      i am not going to shut up about it. she should take a toastmaster class if she wants to learn how to speak in front of crowds. but she does this quite frequently. it’s definitely not the first time i have watched a video of her speaking. she’s an aggressive verbal attacker and deserves as much respect as she puts out, which is none. as i mentioned earlier, it’s not like i hauled off and threw a fist in her face.

        You’re all about civility now, are you.

        Believe it or not, Israelis do get tired after a while of rich countries who live in secure neighborhoods, mistreat their Muslim minorities, and spent a couple of centuries raping and pillaging around the world, targeting it for criticism, and ignoring the ills of countries they depend upon for oil.

        And Annie, Caroline Glick is an op ed columnist, not the Israeli ambassador to Denmark. She owes the guy no particular courtesy. Israelis are not into formality or Western conceits of political correctness. You can count me as one of those who wish the Israelis would be more diplomatic, but the notion that the guy is owed some special courtesy because he’s a diplomat is anachronistic. This is 21st century, not the court of Henry VIII.

      • annie on December 16, 2014, 12:16 am

        it wasn’t some random panel hops, the conference was hosted by the same news outlet in which she is a managing editor. the conference was not their regular annual conference (which i believe is in april) it was a ” Diplomatic Conference” (i even watched dan shapiro’s speech). this is not a call for civility nor am i attacking her freedom of speech. it was a situation in which the moderator lobbed the diplomat a question (and it would not surprise me in the least, given her affiliation with jpost if she didn’t in fact assist in writing those questions herself) and she launched into a diatribe which included completely unsourced allegations ei ” What you’re saying is they are objects.” (probably not a coincidence she’s used the term “objects” wrt palestinians before) she just goes off. it was, literally, a stunning spectacle.

        so setting up a conference for diplomats, which one assumes those on location (ambassadors etc) are beckoned to attend, and then having one of the employees of the brand (hosts) publicly lambasting one of them in this fashion under the rubic of “diplomacy” is astonishing. it’s rare we witness this kind of stuff. very rare. but this is not a call for civility, by all means let it all hang out. but as i wrote above, she’s “a mainstay of Israel’s international diplomacy”.

        Diplomacy is a tradecraft, with centuries of precedent. It has nothing to do with operations at a court of kings. If it were anachronistic, governments would have been dispensed with it as an essential department, and removed foreign service officers from foreign embassies.

        Your remarks are naive. People still talk about Nikita Khrushchev, for example, banging his shoe on the lectern at the UN over 60 years ago as the sign of a rube…and therefore a rube country.

        But I’m loving Glick doing this. Insulting those diplomats will have consequences, and Israel and the Jerusalem Post will have no one to blame but themselves. Not that Israelis are capable of understanding the effect of their actions; they will simply become more strident because they are as ignorant as Khrushchev.

        Their claim to a nation state and international standing is belied by their inability to grasp the rules of the game they think they are a part of: the international community.

        Glick must think that the Danish Ambassador is a powerless man. We’ll see.

        To borrow/paraphrase from the great Frank Zappa, “You know something people?

She’s a consistently grotesque embarrassment: To people generally, and to Jews more specifically. Part of me feels sorry for her because she’s so obviously deluded and tormented (however self-inflicted her torment is…). But a larger part of me just gets angry knowing she’s got a larger megaphone than people who could do some good. Damn…

        Alon Ben-Meir, Senior Fellow, Center for Global Affairs, NYU, has written a biting piece, “Shattering Israel’s Image,” on HuffPo.

        It begins, “No Israeli government has shattered Israel’s international image more than the Netanyahu government has over the past six years.

        He writes,

        To promote his political scheme, Netanyahu has skillfully linked every conflicting issue with the Palestinians to Israel’s national security. He masterfully manipulated public opinion over the years to justify his misadventures and continued occupation in the name of national security, while bringing the peace process to a grinding halt. He has engaged in double talk . . . Netanyahu masterfully uses Hamas’ acrimonious narratives and violence against Israel to paint all Palestinians in the same light. . . . Netanyahu manipulated the peace negotiations to create deadlocks. . . . I do not suggest here that the Palestinians have had the best of intentions to coexist with Israel in peace. . . . That said, the Israelis must recognize that times have changed . . . The old and tired narratives Netanyahu and his emissaries keep promulgating about how untrustworthy the Palestinians are…no longer resonate. . . .Israel is threatened from within. . . . once and for all defeat the chauvinistic and blind ideologues who are leading the country toward the abyss.

    Glick seems to be a disturbed human being. I seriously wonder if she has some problem like high blood pressure, or needs Preparation H. She squirms and seems unable to sit still. She responds to the EU official, who speaks in a very professional manner, like a battle-ax with a short fuse.
    I nearly fell off my chair when she says that only Israel (not even the US) cares about the Palestinians, and how much the IDF is attacked for protecting their families (not mentioning that Palestinian children are blown up for this). She also made that ridiculous claim that Israel adheres to international laws. What is up with these zionists? They either lie or are delusional.
    That koolaid must be very potent.

    Annie is right, she should have shown some class, since these officials were guests, but then acting like a thug and trying to intimidate people who criticize you truly represents what Israel is, and how it acts. They can dish out, but do not have the spine to take it.

    Behold the face of biblical messianism. I can see how caroline would defend the Gibghis Khan of the Old testament, the great slaughterer of humans and other life forms, joshua, to the last Canaanite man, woman and child.

    It’s all a double-standard, the Glick would glibly say. How could you possibly hold the early Israelites to a different standard than the Moavites or the Hittites, or the Egyptians? that after all that the israelites did for those of the Midian tribe, sleazily cunning souls they were, who lied their way into survival as wood haulers and water fetchers! Now, really!

    And the Glick goes on, as she waves and gestures to the multitudes assembled around the soap box:

    “To call Joshua a war criminal, a biblical hitler bent on genocide, only goes to show what contempt the fine souls of the world have for the jews. The Jews who brought the law with them, straight from the Mouth of Moses on the mountain, the one and ONLY people who had any kind of Law in antiquity” (editor note: Hamurabi doesn’t count, of course. His law is heresay but the tablets of Moses survive to this day in the pages lovingly collated by generations of sages versed in law, poetry, psychology and ethics).

    Sorry I just couldn’t help myself imagining caroline on the line in a nice all American debate club high school beating back an attack from someone (kind of like yours truly), who might, just might question the right to be right of the forever righteous.

  10. John Douglas on December 15, 2014, 9:56 pm

    This is amazing, Annie. Thanks. I have a few quick reactions. First, Glick is pretty impressive. I wish she were on the right side of this. Second, whenever someone who has strayed from the Zionist line then needs their support, e.g., Samantha Powers or Chuck Hagel, they are required to fawn over the Zionists and their cause so bring on Eli Wiesel or Abe Foxman to hear confession. In this case the Ambassador does the fawning, his statements were really stupid, and she catches him at it. Good for her. He deserved it. He says, You’re like us, you’re good people so we expect more of you. How many Iraqis are dead because the west wants their oil and the American neo-conservative wanted a beachhead in the ME, to spread democracy? BS. He’s sitting with people who cheered the killing of 500 children telling them how good they are. As someone says, “Ya can’t make this stuff up!”

      john, first off i think his phrasing was bizarre, so i am not going to defend it. second, i think what he meant , or should have said more concisely is that israel, unlike any other states in the region, has the benefit (assuming he sees it as a benefit) of being afforded a european status w/all the frills that go along with that. like being the only non european state included in Horizon 2020, the €80 billion research and innovation project launched by the EU to create job growth and fuel the economy – See more at: http://mondoweiss.net/2013/08/eu-stance-on-settlements-threatens-israeli-participation-in-bonanza-called-horizon-2020#sthash.GTYivBXS.dpuf

      aside from the billions in financial perks israel is included in this idea of being a ‘western state’ which in fundamental ways it just isn’t – petraeus even thought israel should come under the purview of centcom. and your point about the west being barbaric – i fully agree.

      and lastly, the question itself is hypocritical because israel/glick and the whole zionist ball of wax would go completely apeshit if for one second the US or the european union applied equal standards to both entities. imagine palestine being supported militarily the way israel is? imagine if they had an airforce, a navy, iron domes of their own and american made ammunitions? there’s your double standard, the military edge (a steep ravine) we provide to israel.

        “For Americans sending aid to IDF soldiers, rules of engagement vary

        There is a range of initiatives raising money stateside for Israeli soldiers, but sending U.S. Jewish aid to the Israel Defense Forces can be a touchy subject.

        When the season’s first snowstorm descended on Mount Hermon in the Golan Heights a few weeks ago, it didn’t take long before M, a career sergeant in the Israel Defense Forces, received a phone call from Leon Blankrot.

        “What do you need to keep warm?” asked Blankrot, executive director of Yashar Lachayal, an organization that aids Israeli soldiers and is funded by donations from American Jews.

        A couple of days later, a shipment of hats and neck warmers arrived for M and the soldiers under his command.”

      It’s more than that, oldgeezer. Glick is the embodiment of the Hebrew bubble , that alternative Zionist reality that dominates discourse in Israel. And the Danish ambassador represents reality.
      And Hebrew can’t explain itself any longer to reality.

      http://www.nybooks.com/articles/archives/2014/nov/20/gaza-murderous-melodrama/

      “One has to bear in mind that Israelis live in a largely mythic world, a somewhat modified and vastly simplified version of the Iliad. In this starkly polarized vision of reality, in which Israelis are by definition innocent victims of dark, irrational forces operating against them, heroic death in war always makes sense, and violent coercion is the option both of necessity and of choice. ”

    hopmi’s allegation that Annie is a “self-hating woman” is ludicrous of course, but indeed, some women fall short in delivering ludicrous statements compared to men.

    My first data point was a comparison of Colin Powell who was selling lies about Saddam’s Hussein phantom weapons of mass distraction with perfect, measured baritone with Condolezza Rice who was always nervously twitching her head. Perhaps having a thick neck and deep voice gives an advantage. That said, most of the hysterical productions of Zionism extremists seems to be delivered by men.

    On another note, I think she garbled a talking point laboriously prepared by Zionist think tanks. Foreign countries definitely do not “directly fund” Moroccan settlements in Sahara. There is an agreement of EU with Morocco allowing EU boats to pay fees to fish in Moroccan economical zone that includes the coast of Western Sahara. Then she made a point that EU violates conventions of not aiding terrorists by “funding Gaza”. This is TOTAL bovine manure, and I am sorry to say, Glick more or less repeated what the think tanks produced (that why think tanks are bad for the environment: valuable fertilizer is tragically misused, plus, think how all that methane is contributing to global warming). A very angry article in Jerusalem Post was accusing the government of the Netherlands to financing attempts to annihilate Israel (those very words!) because it donates to UNRWA.

    It is not a big deal today to have professional online news -forum-exchange. This is not it as newly designed.

    Certainly not Glick, but I’m a bit dubious about the ambassador. He looks and sounds like your standard issue urbane, educated, Dane. But we have to ask “What ghastly blunder, shocking character flaw, unspeakable habit, or dreadful misfortune led to him being appointed ambassador to Israel?”

        When the EU supports settlements in occupied Northern Cyprus while condemning Israeli settlements, that’s a double standard.

        “Imagine a Palestine being supported militarily”.
        I don’t have to imagine. I can still remember a very well armed PLO that was able to set up their own fiefdom in Southern Lebanon, circa 1970’s , and using South Lebanon as a base to attack Israel. I remember the Palestinians attempting a coup against King of Jordan.

        Christ, Jackdaw, that Northern Cyprus point is a complete non sequitur.
        The land of the West Bank doesn’t belong to Israel.
        And Palestinians have no rights there.
        Greek Cypriots have their own state by comparison.
        And Turkish Cypriots have full rights.

        Why can’t goys have rights under Jewish rule?

      • talknic on December 16, 2014, 12:01 pm

        @ Jackdaw “When the EU supports settlements in occupied Northern Cyprus “

        It’s those damn Turks and a hypocritical EU forcing Israel to … wait a minute .. 1967 is 7 yrs before 1974 and;
        1948 was 26yrs before 1974

        So, despite the fact that Israel has been in breach of its legal obligations for far longer, if the EU didn’t give any support to occupied Northern Cyprus, Israel would immediately end its occupation of non-Israeli territories and withdraw, taking all its illegal settlers, dismantling all its illegal facts on the ground, adhere to the Law, UN Charter & relevant conventions and pay rightful compensation for 66 years of transgressions …. right? ( Say have you ever contemplated the costs of Israel adhering to the law? )

        “while condemning Israeli settlements”

        Regardless of what Turkey has done, Israeli settlements in Occupied Territories are still illegal per UNSC resolutions, which are based on the binding International Laws, the binding UN Charter and relative binding conventions reaffirmed and emphasized in those resolutions, none of which are antisemitic or for that matter anti Israel otherwise I cannot imagine Israel would ever have agreed to have become a party to them!

        In fact many laws, UN Charter articles and conventions were adopted in large part based on the treatment of our Jewish fellows under the Nazis. It’s bizarre that the Jewish state should now be in breach ….. really bizarre!

        Were Israel to have adhered to the law in the first place, there’d be no legal basis for issuing hundreds of UNSC resolutions reminding and affording the opportunity to adhere to its legal obligations in territories “outside the State of Israel” … “in Palestine”.

        Answer me honestly if you can, is the power company for example biased for sending reminders when folk don’t uphold their end of the contract?

        “When far more egregious human rights violators get a free pass from a UN the condemns Israel more than any other country, than that’s a double standard”

        You’re spouting wholly holey Hasbara bullsh*te buster!

        The UN/UNGA/UNSC has never adopted any resolution condemning Israel for ANYTHING within Israel’s sovereign territory.

        It would be illegal under the UN Charter Article 2

        (7) Nothing contained in the present Charter shall authorize the United Nations to intervene in matters which are essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of any state or shall require the Members to submit such matters to settlement under the present Charter;

        You can of course easily prove me wrong ….. cite one … go ahead … I’ll wait …… … I promise!

        It then goes on to say

        but this principle shall not prejudice the application of enforcement measures under Chapter Vll

        There has never been a UNSC Chapt VII resolution against Israel for ANYTHING inside or outside its borders. The US has used its UNSC veto to prevent any action being taken against Israel despite the fact that Israel is in breach of the binding laws, binding UN Charter and binding conventions reaffirmed and emphasized in hundreds of UNSC chapt VI resolutions for its actions “outside the State of Israel” … “in Palestine”.

    “The ambassador of Denmark to Israel, accompanied by more than 100 Danish Jews, gathered at a high school in the capital Tuesday to honor the 70th anniversary of Denmark’s rescue of more than 7,000 Jews from Nazi persecution.

    During a two-day incursion between August 29 and October 1 in 1943, the Nazis, who occupied Denmark at the time, attempted to deport the country’s nearly 7,500 Jews to death camps, but were defeated during a spontaneous uprising coordinated by Denmark’s citizens.

    In defiance of the powerful Nazi war machine, thousands of Danes risked their own lives by hiding Jewish men, women and children, and then utilizing row boats and other modest vessels to transport the vast majority to politically neutral Sweden.

    Danish Ambassador Jesper Vahr spoke at the memorial ceremony at the Denmark School in Talpiot.

    “I, as Ambassador of Denmark and all Danes, can take great pride in this: The name Denmark reminds us of our duty to protect human life,” said Vahr.

    “This anniversary means a lot both to Danes and to Israel.””

In addition, Zionists fought alongside the British in World War II.

        I’m amazed you dare to bring up the Transfer Agreement. It may have saved that relatively small number of German Jews, but at the same time it also saved the Nazi government, which in its early months had not consolidated its power and was in a shaky economic condition, in desperate need of foreign exchange, which the Transfer Agreement provided. The Transfer Agreement put an end to the developing worldwide boycott of Nazi Germany. Without the Transfer Agreement, Nazi rule in Germany might have ended in a few months. Without the Transfer Agreement, there might have been no Holocaust.

        ” the Zionists did bring 60,000 German Jewish souls to Palestine, saving them as part of the ‘Transfer Agreement’”

        Zionists colluded with the Nazis to get rid of its Jewish citizens in order to take over Palestine … wow, that’s very interesting

        What did the “antipathetic, hostile and unfeeling” Irish do for the Jews of the Holocaust?

        A) they didn’t collude with the Nazis …

        B) the ban was not specific to Jews, it extended to all refugees. The policy was based on the parlous state of the nation at the time, quite understandable. Quite a few countries shared the same policy for the same reasons

        C) Israel has always refused to take in its ownnon-Jewish refugees

        Strange, they were only reiterating a long standing (1922) and understandable policy under the LoN Mandate for Palestine. I do believe 1922 was long before the Holocaust

        Real History instead of fantasy? Well, yes. Some did. The Palestine Regiment included Jews as well as Arabs.

        The Arab Legion and the Libyan Arab Force also fought alongside the British.

        The Free French Army included a lot of Arabs from Morocco and Algeria, and they fought alongside the British. (Embarrassingly, the Free French forces who liberated Paris consisted largely of heavily shaded-in people who had never been in France before.)

        Of course, not all the Arabs were enthusiastic about helping foreigners to fight wars in Arab lands. And the Stern Gang tried to get the support of the Germans and the Italians.

      1) The acquisition of territory by conquest by ANY country has been outlawed since at least 1933 under the Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States Adopted into the UN Charter 1945.

      2) ‘historical reasons’ became irrelevant at precisely 00:01 May 15th 1948 when according to the Israeli Government of May 15th 1948, Israel’s boundaries according to UNGA res 181 came into effect. What ever lay “outside the State of Israel” … “in Palestine” after declaration was and is still not Israeli by any legal transaction

      “Furthermore, he said, the case of Western Sahara is actually quite similar to that of the West Bank, because in both cases no sovereign state existed in the disputed territory before it was occupied”

      He’s tawking’ more BULLSH*T!

      The West Bank as it is now known, was legally annexed at the request of the Palestinians Jordan’s annexation was as a trustee only (Session: 12-II Date: May 1950).

      Unlike the illegal unilateral annexation of East Jerusalem by Israel, without any agreement, condemned by the UNSC, the annexation under Jordanian sovereignty was not condemned by the UNSC. BTW recognition does not play a part in legal annexation. It’s legal by agreement between the representative/s of the legitimate citizens of the territory to be annexed and the annexing country.

      The West Bank was sovereign to Jordan, which was a UN Member state and High Contacting Power in 1967 when the West Bank was occupied by Israel. For this reason UNSC res 476 tells us the GC’s apply.

      The West Bank under Jordanian sovereignty until Jordan formally relinquished sovereignty and administrative control to the PLO in 1988 in order that the Palestinians could make their declaration of statehood.

    Classic glick!!,

    “GLICK: According to the survey data I cite in my book, most Palestinians already do buy in. Fifty-nine percent of Palestinians oppose an Israeli withdrawal from the areas. Polls show that Israel is viewed by most Palestinians as the greatest democracy in the world. If the Palestinians were given the freedom to choose, I have no doubt that their verdict would bear out my contention. What does the PLO give them? A life of privation, political repression, and corruption in an area it rules through the law of the jungle and the jackboot. On the other hand, Israel is a pluralistic, liberal democracy with a first-world economy. To buy in, all they have to do is stop seeking its destruction.”

    http://carolineglick.com/interview-with-national-review-about-the-israeli-solution/

    More of the same glick hasbara!!

    “GLICK: Husseini was the British-appointed Supreme Mufti of Jerusalem and the unchallenged leader of the Palestinian Arabs during the British Mandate for Palestine from 1922 to 1948. More than any other person, Husseini invented the Palestinian people and developed their national ethos. Both Yasser Arafat and Abbas have extolled Husseini as the paragon of Palestinian leadership. Arafat presented himself as the lawful heir of Husseini’s mantle of leadership.

    The national ethos that Husseini invented was a wholly negative one. It wasn’t about developing a distinct Palestinian Arab culture or way of life. It wasn’t about building a Palestinian state. The Palestinian national ethos that Husseini developed was based entirely on seeking the annihilation of the then-nascent Jewish state and the Jewish people worldwide.

    To this end, he became a Nazi. He participated in the Holocaust and he fused traditional Islamic Jew-hatred with annihilationist European anti-Semitism of the Nazi pedigree. This legacy now has developed deep roots throughout the Islamic world.

    What a piece of work this creep is.Imagine what she is saying in private.

  29. American on December 16, 2014, 7:55 am

    About Glick.
    Many moons ago when I was first getting into the Isr issue I read one of her columns in the JP . I cant remember the content now but I emailed her about it. I was polite because at that time I wasn’t yet fully anti Israel and didn’t know what I was dealing with in Zionist.
    In my mail I said something about Israel losing the sympathy of the world by maintaining their occupation of Palestine.
    Anyway she mailed me back and told me to stuff my sympathy and Israel didn’t want the gd sympathy of anti semites…LOL
    She’s a extreme hater. That’s all there is to her.

    • seafoid on December 16, 2014, 10:33 am

      Jewish hate is a very interesting phenomenon.

      • Jackdaw on December 17, 2014, 12:57 pm

        Yeah. It’s seems to have all but consumed you.

    When are the Zionists going to realize that this kind of intimidating behaviour is costing them friends and supporters? When it is too late? The world supported the founding of the State of israel; now it is time to support the founding of the State of Palestine without being ostracized.

    • CigarGod on December 16, 2014, 10:27 am

      You are right, vera.
      I dont like being in the same room as these guys. You cant talk with them because you cant get a work in edge-wise, and you cant work with them…because they wont stop barking and lunge-ing.

      That is what my holiday gathers and family reunions are like, anyway.

    • eljay on December 16, 2014, 11:22 am

      >> Vera Gottlieb: When are the Zionists going to realize that this kind of intimidating behaviour is costing them friends and supporters? When it is too late?

      The insatiable greed and uncompromising immorality of Zio-supremacists will be their undoing. When it all falls apart, I have a bad feeling that non-Zionist Jews will suffer at least some of the backlash, and that far too many Zio-supremacists with dirty and bloody hands will walk away unscathed.

      • Mooser on December 17, 2014, 11:11 pm

        “When it all falls apart, I have a bad feeling that non-Zionist Jews will suffer at least some of the backlash,”

        I’d be willing to wager that if anti-Zionist Jews suffer any violence during the backlash, it will be from attacks by Zionists.

  31. eGuard on December 16, 2014, 12:15 pm

    There actually exists a newspaper called The Copenhagen Post. Last summer, it reproduced this picture called “Sderot cinema”: Israelis cheering the Gaza bombings. Glick’s JPost had to reproduce it, to allow the Danish photographer (or all Europeans, who cares) be called anti-Semites.

    Thank you Annie. I’m just wondering how the Danish Ambassador responded to Glick, and if that is available on youtube.

      While it’s of course good that Vahr called Glick out on her infantile equating of opposition to Israeli policy with anti-Semitism, I must admit to personally not being very impressed with Vahr on the whole. His groping at the non-existent last straws of the Two-State Solution is annoyingly “Liberal Zionist” and of course very status quo.

      But more than that, Vahr’s explanation of his “enlightened double standard” as applied to Israel (as seen just before Glick’s tirade in the clip Annie provides in her article above) makes basically no sense to me. Mainly gobbledygook. His attempt at explaining the “morality” or reasoning behind holding Israel to a different “standard” than other countries/states is, like Glick, another manifestation of a person trying to reconcile internalized opposites. Not on par w/ Glick’s epic internal struggle, but nonetheless…

      • Kay24 on December 17, 2014, 3:44 am

        I guess the Ambassador had to act the gentleman and diplomat. She looked so petulant and angry at the end of her tirade. He was firm when he stated that when it comes to the illegal settlements Denmark has an entirely different stance, compared to the cooperation with Israel on most matters. I also think he scored good points when he referred to the Jewish and anti-semitic card, and was bold to mention it. Don’t we know ad nauseam how often that is played to show victimization?

  33. rhkroell on December 16, 2014, 2:21 pm

    Great post, Annie! This is the new face of Israel, the economic and military hegemon of the Middle East, the Near East, and Southwestern Asia who singlehandedly opposes Islamic terrorists around the world while Europeans and Americans sit on their thumbs, or worse, secretly support and finance Islamic terrorists, anti-Semites, and Jew-haters around the world.

    According to Glick, the late great Ze’ev Jabotinsky and Menachem Begin, and Zionist roadhouse bouncers like the current Minister of Foreign Affairs, Avigdor Lieberman, Israelis (and/or Jews, people of Jewish descent) have been treated in a contemptuous, patronizing and condescending manner by Europeans for hundreds — or better, thousands — of years.

    Why should the direct descendants of Abraham, Moses, Deborah, Ruth, Solomon and David pay any attention whatsoever to what these morally obtuse pagans, idol worshippers, and Judenhasser have to say about the way Jews govern their God-given homeland, Eretz Israel?

  34. Tom Suarez on December 17, 2014, 12:20 am

    Huge thanks, Annie, for this important piece.
    What was striking to me even more than Ms. Glick’s pathetic theatre was Ambassador Vahr’s equally pathetic logic, premises, and “narrative” (which I mean in a pejorative way). Is he really that dumb, or was his strained reasoning the inevitable result of having to reassure everyone that he really does love Israel, honest, really I do? All in all, a classic all around…

    • annie on December 17, 2014, 12:25 am

      hey thanks tom, means a lot coming from you. ;)

  35. rhkroell on December 18, 2014, 2:39 am

    According to Glick, nothing has changed. Europeans treat Jews, an essentialist corporate body, the same way, today, they have since the time of Jesus.
     
    Non-Jews have always misread/misinterpreted the Book.  Non-Jews are incapable of understanding YHWH’s Word.  Jews alone understand YHWH’s Law.  Jews alone are capable of distinguishing right from wrong.   Jews alone are capable of determining terrorists from non-terrorists. All non-Jews worship idols and/or false “messiahs,” so Israelis refuse to recognize — or abide by — non-Jewish (international) law.

    Better: Glick simply turns agreed-upon international law on its head by suggesting that only Israelis understand and respect international law: “We [Israelis] respect international law,” Glick claims.  “You guys [Europeans] make it up.”

    The Simon Weisenthal Center and Hillel International just proudly announced a new phone app “to fight anti-Semitism” which will be deployed on 550 US campuses with Hillel centers.

    In a truly alarming marriage of Paranoid Surveillance Culture and the no-desperate-move-surprises-us-anymore Israel lobby…the Simon Wiesenthal Center (SWC), the group known for actually building a “Museum of Tolerance” on top of a Muslim cemetery in Jerusalem, has developed the app to encourage students to literally report their teachers and fellow students. Reminiscent of surveillance posters found in places like Singapore, and I’d imagine, North Korea, this app’s catch phrase is “See it. Report It”

    Explained Hillel International spokesperson David Eden:

    “Working against anti-Semitism with the Wiesenthal Center is a natural for Hillel International. We’re proud to stand shoulder to shoulder by promoting this important tool to those who most often take the brunt of anti-Semitic attacks – students,” said David Eden, Chief Administrative Officer and chief spokesperson for Hillel International. “This innovative and simple to use app is another resource that we can use to help keep North American college campuses safe for Jewish students.”

      LOL omg! let me guess, they will be monitoring bds activists? something tells me this could back fire. ;)

      btw, i am so retro i don’t know what an app is. probably an application. is it like a mini browser filled with info. i should find out. i am so non-techie. lol

      ok for a little nighttime wonderland, mr wonderful miracle himself:

      • Walid on December 18, 2014, 4:54 am

        Annie, the guy is certainly no “old blue -eyes” and will never be; with that song, he’s become just another one of Lebanon’s 5 dozen ho-hum singers competing in a non-existing market. His talent and super major appeal was in his rah rah rah patriotic Palestinian songs that got everyone, Palestinian and other Arabs all stirred up. This song is to put them back to sleep. Platinum Records is steering him in the wrong direction.

      • just on December 18, 2014, 7:03 am

        He still moves me, Walid. His voice is a gift; his story is as well.

        Nothing “ho-hum” there.

      • Walid on December 18, 2014, 9:04 am

        I wasn’t knocking him, just, I agree his voice is very nice. I was critical of the choice of songs Platinum is picking for him.

  37. rhkroell on December 18, 2014, 4:46 am

    That’s so funny. What’s an app.? You’re so-o-o-o-o-o retro.

  38. hophmi on December 19, 2014, 11:07 pm

    Oh please, talknic, this is ridiculous, even for you. Edwin Black has refuted your nonsense about “collusion.” It was an attempt to rescue refugees. That you would judge it 80 years after the fact shows what a depraved nincompoop you are.

    The White Paper of 1939 was issued in response to Arab pressure and the Intifada of ’36-’39. It was not a reiteration of the 1922 policy. It restricted Jewish emigration and banned the sale of Arab land to Jews. You’re wrong on this point, completely.

    The Zionists did not fight the British after the war. A small segment of them did.

  39. MRW on December 20, 2014, 12:43 am

    Glick quotes Chapter 7 of UN international law of 2001 but overlooks that Israel ignores the UN Chapter 7 legal sanctions from the 1970s, sanctions it has refused to honor?

    Oh well, let her spout.

  40. Citizen on December 21, 2014, 5:25 am

    Some people would say Glick is mentally ill, suffering from what they call PTSS, “Pretraumatic Stress Syndrome.” This seems to make sense since she grew up very privileged, protected, and insulated in the Hyde Park section of Chicago. Ever been there? I use to visit Hyde Park to breathe in its U of C bohemian airs–sneaking over from my tiny basement apartment on the south side where I worked nights in the steel mills. Little did I know then my future mother in law grew up there, in one of HP’s brownstones, nor did I know I’d be dating a black sheep Pritzker girl from there.

  41. santasa on January 17, 2015, 10:19 pm

    Glick looks and sounds like psychopath, however Dane sounds like a 19th century colonial racist !?
    If this is personification of “help” and “friendship” that Palestinians could expect these days from EU (heavily influenced with injection of prevalent racism among ex-communist states and their homogeneous ethnic & social strata after 50+ years of isolation behind “Iron Curtain”) then one can say only god help you Palestinian brothers.
