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

So, You Have Accepted The Truth...Maybe...

The Marack Pajama show has asked us to suspend belief on a lot things. Perhaps that annoying thing called "reality" is finally starting to catch up with them. Probably not, but it's worth a shot.

Hillel Fendel is reporting the following at Arutz Sheva:

...former Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Zalman Shoval says he notices the first signs of a slight change in the Obama administration’s emphasis.
“I have just returned from a series of important and interesting talks with leaders in Washington,” Shoval told Arutz-7’s Hebrew newsmagazine, “including heads of the previous administration, such as former National Security Council head Stephen Hadley and Elliott Abrams. They all confirmed what was publicized this week, that there were understandings between the Bush Administration and Ariel Sharon [that Israel could continue settlement construction after the Disengagement from Gush Katif – ed.]. They even drew the maps for me, and I am certain that the Obama administration knows these facts too.”

Now, didn't I say that pretending those agreements didn't exist was going to come back and bite them on the ass? Just because Hitler proved that if you tell a lie over and over eventually people will believe it doesn't mean they will believe you. Here's a tip. If you're going to tell a lie about something on the international stage, make sure it isn't one that can be exposed by more than one person not on the payroll.

Shoval said that there is a willingness in Washington “to find solutions for the mini-crisis that has arisen on the matter of settlements. The Americans realize that this dispute has grown out of proportion, and that there are more important things than the settlements – for instance, the recent events in Iran.”

Or maybe it's that the Arabs aren't interested in normalizing relations with Israel...uh..duh. No wait...let's throw Marack a bone. Bahrain did make its first official visit to Israel on pick up Bahraini nationals Israel was deporting...

How many of you think Marack will site that as an advance in Arab-Israeli relations, and that it is all because of his messianic leadership?

Yeah, I think he will too.

Shoval says the Americans are beginning to rethink their policy vis-à-vis Iran: “They see a large question mark about their policy until now, because everyone now understands that Ahmadinajad and Khamenei have entrenched themselves into their regime once again, and the chance for dialogue with them is very slim. This regime has revealed itself to be extremist – not only towards the world, but even towards its own people – and American public opinion will no longer accept the concept of dialogue with such a government. Even the media there, which until now has supported Obama, have begun attacking the government. There is criticism not only about Iran, but even regarding statements by some Obama people that understandings were not reached in the past regarding the settlements.”

Does that mean Marack isn't going to embarrass us again by attempting to block ratcheting up sanctions against Iran at the the G8? If not, I'm sure he'll find some other way to humiliate us; maybe he'll give Ipods to the deaf.

Truth is, even with reality staring them in the face, Robert Wexler will still think the moon is made of farts and shines because of magic unicorns, and Marack would still say 2+2=5.
