It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

The Dupes vs The Shim Sham: Jewish Leaders Meeting Marack

In the run up to a meeting today between a dozen or so Jewish leaders and Little Lord Fraudleroy, one of the meeting attendees said:

"American Jews more or less agree with the president on settlements, but it's the focus on criticizing Israel that's disconcerting."

This statement is so fucked on so many levels I'm not really sure where to begin. Firstly, American Jews don't more or less agree on anything; hence the expression, "Two Jews, three opinions." While there was a time when restricting settlement growth had political utility, that time has long passed. Don't presume to speak for me jackass.

Second, Marack isn't criticizing Israel at all. He has not levied any criticism at Israel. He has been dictating policy. Apparently the kool-aid hasn't completely worn off yet. He has declared what he wants Israel's borders to be; he has declared that he wants a UN flag flying over the Temple Mount; he has declared where Jews can live. Where's the criticism?

And people like this are going to walk in to a room, get the Marackian Shim Sham, and walk out. What's worse, he'll only need to hear a couple of these people say, "We agree Barry...the settlements are bad..." and he'll have gotten all he needs, not that it would matter to him if they all told him the Jewish communities of Yesha are Jerusalem's outermost defense. Marack has made up his mind, and like the last chowder head we had the misfortune of calling our President, reason and reality don't matter. It's Marack's way. And Marack's way is sticking Israel's neck out for her enemies.

American Jews started coming out of their kool-aid stupor after Marack's speech in Cairo. Got news for ya; June was too late. The time for paying attention and acting was at the ballot box, but most of you morons voted for this douche and now it's waaaaah! you're so hard on Israel!


Today's meeting was to be off the record. I'm not gonna speak for anyone one else, but I sure as hell would like to know what happens in that room.

There's only one shim sham that I approve of, and that's this one:

yeahhh even the teleprompter broke under the strain of his speaking out of both sides of his mouth at once all the time and maintaining some vestige of sanity ... what do we expect of mere people ...

It helps when you're playing to a room that would rather be in denial and be told what it wants to hear. Of course Ira Forman is the Grand Poobah of Democratic Jews for Sucking Up to Obama, or whatever it is that they call it. He's a big time Obama shill.

This administration is a fucking joke.
