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.

Share The Fantasy: Abu In A Suit Goes To The Prom

Mahmoud Abbas got his chance to go to the prom with The Barry this past week. What a performance D'artanian! What a performance! His strategy? Playing his part in the farce that is the Israeli/Arab "Peace Process," he took a self-righteous and intractable position to mirror the statement made in the White House by Prime Minister Netanyahu two weeks ago. The civilian targeting terrorists won't come to the table without an Israeli settlement freeze and Netanyahu's public acceptance of the "two-state" solution. He knows these two things won't happen, so now he is waiting for his new found lover, the Barry, to sweep him right out of his fine tailored suit by putting pressure on Netanyahu to accept these demands, believing that said pressure will result in regime change in Israel (most likely hoping, in his Israel snuff film sex fantasy, that Tzipi Livni would gain power and slit Israel's throat by giving the terrorists all of the West Bank and East Jerusalem). Abbas thinks that either Bibi will submit and his coalition will collapse, or the Israeli public will grow angry over the falling out between Israel and the United States. Likud MK and Government Coalition Chairman Ze'ev Elkin addressed this saying:
"If it is true that Abu Mazen [Abbas] believes Livni will be a more comfortable negotiating partner for the Palestinians, then it shows the wisdom of the Israeli voter, who decided to place someone else in charge."
It's not a wholly unrealistic fantasy. Bibi was ousted by the Israeli electorate when his stance generated tension with Bill Clinton over the peace process. Abbas thinks history will repeat itself. Mahmoud, I hate to piss on your parade but, in case you haven't noticed, these are different times. When Netanyahu was driven from office in the mid 90's it was not long after the slaying of Yitzchak Rabin in the wake of the false optimism of the Oslo fiasco. It was also before the second intifada, which was launched by Yassir Arafat when he and Ehud Barak were on the verge of a deal that would have given him virtually all of the West Bank with a piece of Jerusalem as the capital of the new Terror Kleptocracy. When faced with actually having to lead a real country (which would have meant demonstrating to his generous world financial backers, whose money he pocketed in the billions, that he could actually do so) he decided he'd rather keep stealing the world's money out of the pockets of his people, and keep killing Jews. If your real desire is to eradicate the Jewish state and take all the land "from the river to the sea," as the traditional chant goes, accepting borders that give you less sorta kills that notion.

Here's another fly in the ointment for Abu Killajew; Ehud Olmert offered Abbas 97% of the West Bank, and a portion of Jerusalem to Abbas. Like the scraggle bearded angel of death before him, Abu Killajew said, "No thanks." Jackson Diehl, a man apparently lacking the savvy to realize that Fatah and Hamas are two sides of the same coin, confirmed the existence of the deal from Abbas' own mouth:
In our meeting Wednesday, Abbas acknowledged that Olmert had shown him a map proposing a Palestinian state on 97 percent of the West Bank -- though he complained that the Israeli leader refused to give him a copy of the plan. He confirmed that Olmert "accepted the principle" of the "right of return" of Palestinian refugees -- something no previous Israeli prime minister had done -- and offered to resettle thousands in Israel. In all, Olmert's peace offer was more generous to the Palestinians than either that of Bush or Bill Clinton; it's almost impossible to imagine Obama, or any Israeli government, going further.

Abbas turned it down.
Diehl also states in the article that Netanyahu did not make Arab recognition a precondition of meeting with Abbas. So not only is Diehl lacking savvy, he's also an idiot, as Netanyahu made it very clear in the White House that this concession was an absolute necessity. [Is it any wonder why print media is failing? It's being put together by people who don't know a hawk from a handsaw.]

Abbas is a killer first and a diplomat...well, never. His own lack of smarts is showing. Perhaps he's growing soft in the brain. He rejected the best deal Israel will ever give, even sweeter than Barak's in 2000. He has, as has Fatah and Hamas, gone on record again with Diehl, as he did a couple months ago, and as he does periodically over time, saying he will not ever recognize Israel.
Abbas rejects the notion that he should make any comparable concession -- such as recognizing Israel as a Jewish state, which would imply renunciation of any large-scale resettlement of refugees.

Instead, he says, he will remain passive. "I will wait for Hamas to accept international commitments. I will wait for Israel to freeze settlements," he said. "Until then, in the West Bank we have a good reality . . . the people are living a normal life." In the Obama administration, so far, it's easy being Palestinian
[Life is normal now? Well then I guess we'll stop hearing all the death to Israel chanting, and you won't be needing all that World Bank money now too I suppose] Now he hopes the Israeli public will forget this, along with forgetting the intifada, and eight years of Hamas rockets, which continue to fall after a full evacuation of Jewish settlements in Gaza (oh, yeah...that's something else Israelis know now for peace is a lie). Here's a newsflash, that's the reason the Israeli electorate put a right wing government in power, you dumbass.

The Barry of course is right in line with Abbas, increasing the pressure on Israel, in tandem with George Mitchell and the State Department, and apparently Barry's lovers in the Arab League, to freeze all settlement construction, including the "natural growth" of the large established communities. Bibi has agreed to halt the establishment of new settlements, and has consented to taking down hilltop outposts, which religious zealots reestablish as soon as they are torn down. But the expansion construction of established settlements will continue. Apparently only the Jews are not allowed to have children and expect them to be able to live in the towns in which they were born. But Israel is supposed to accept "right of return" of Arabs to Israel. Who exactly are the advocates of apartheid? The Israeli response to the pressure so far has been, "Go park it where the sun don't shine."

On Saturday night Elkin said:
"With all due respect to the United States, our strategic ally, we are an independent democratic country, and our political leadership is chosen by internal democratic processes."
Another senior government official said:
"It would be a pity if the Palestinian leadership threw away the very real chance that exists to move forward with this Israeli government on our proposed three-track approach of political, economic and security issues. If they decide they don't want to work to move the process forward, they'll have no one to blame but themselves."
The Barry is now going to have to come to terms with reality. The two sides have dug their heels in. One side will not make any concessions that hinders its ability to destroy the other. One side will not negotiate until the other concedes its right to exist. To an ethical human being, who is supposed to be the leader of the free world, it would make sense to lean on the side bent on the other's destruction. Not so with The Barry. If it's anti-Israel, anti-Jew, and flies in the face of American interest, it has to be good to The Barry. Pressure is being applied on Israel by the White House to commit suicide.

It has not taken the Israeli government long to figure out what I and others have known for some time; The Barry is hostile to Israel, and cannot be relied on. He cannot be relied on to use American influence to shield Israel from Iranian nukes. He cannot be relied on to be an honest broker for peace that will force the Arabs to finally let go of the notion that they are going to be allowed to destroy Israel.

And what is the response to this realization? Israel is following the suggestion I made at this blog in early March. Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman is traveling to Russia and Belarus on Monday. According to Lieberman's spokesman, Tzhai Moshe, Lieberman will be meeting with President Medvedev, Prime Minister Putin, and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov for talks, "that are part of the special strategic connection which the minister believes Israel has with Russia."

He went on to say that they will, "discuss many issues, including Iran and the strengthening of Israel's relationship with 'Eastern bloc' countries." This might include expanding Israel's role in helping Russia deal with Islamic terrorists, potential arms deals (Israel is already moving full speed ahead in producing UAVs for Russia in a multi-million dollar deal, the first time Russia has purchased a weapons system from Israel, the pace quickening with the announcement that Russia has cancelled its sale of Mig-31s to Syria; and has assured Jerusalem that it would not sell the s300 defense missile system to Iran), technology exchanges, or maybe Black Sea Fleet access to Israeli ports, or maybe piping Russian oil through Israel to the Red Sea so Russia could circumvent the Suez Canal, a notion that has already been bandied about by the two countries. I bet joint submarine exercises in the Mediterranean would make a lot of people crap their drawers. I wonder if the Department of Defense and The Barry will rethink the strategy of withholding the sales of new American fighter planes and Apache Longbows to Israel. Or maybe they'll just buy the MiG-31s that Syria was going to get. They sound more suited to Israel's pressing needs vis a vis Iran's nuclear weapons program anyway.

I would not be surprised if The Barry tried calling Putin and Medvedev today to try and stymie the talks. I wonder how Russian snickering sounds on the red phone these days? It's probably hilarious. All in all this is just another indication that The Barry is in over his head, the threads of our international relations are slipping in the hands of an inexperienced puppet master who is more used to committing election fraud and being lazy than he is upholding the law and doing actual grownup stuff. Even Shrub had Darth Vader.

Stay tuned. Things haven't been this interesting in the Middle East since the Cold War. Too bad America is in the hands of Jimmy Carter 2.0. He has led Abbas to believe that he could put a pie in Israel's face and get away with it. If Bugs Bunny has taught us anything, and I'd like to think that he has, such a notion is a big mistake.

Do you like blackberry pie?

The Suu Kyi Fiasco Continues, and Finally Hillary Speaks Out

In the latest twist in the ongoing ordeal of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, she has been put on trial in a kangaroo court for harboring 53 year old John Yettaw, who swam across a lake to see her. It is obvious to anyone who has been following the Suu Kyi case that this is simply a pretext to keep her imprisoned in the shadow of yet another deadline for her release. But this time she will most likely be put in prison. Already being detained in Insein Prison, I suspect that if found guilty of violating the terms of her house arrest she will be kept there, and I fear will die there from a "fall down the stairs," "suicide," or other such lie.

Having been detained against her will for 13 out of the last 19 years, 3 Presidents now have presided while she rots, the interred rightful leader of Burma, elected by the people, but kept out of power by the military junta that has ruled there since 1962. None of these Presidents have done anything of substance to free her, or eject the junta from power. Why? Because the United States is too busy kissing China's ass, a position reinforced by President HopeNChange who has skyrocketed our debt with his crapulus and budget, and thus increased our dependence on being on their buddy list.

I have impatiently been waiting for Secretary of State Clinton to make any kind of statement regarding Suu Kyi's continued illegal imprisonment. She finally decided to pipe up this past month with a lot of useless gestures like trying to speak to the Secretary General of the UN, a useless and impotent organization that only seeks to exert any authority when it comes to condemning Israel, call on the ASEAN group, of which China is a member, and talk nice to China itself. China, speaking as a member of ASEAN has already said it would not interfere with the junta's actions. Defense Secretary Gates has also pushed Myanmar to free Suu Kyi and engage in a dialogue with the democratic opposition. I think I hear the sound of snickering.

It's a little hard to pressure the principle power broker in the region when we are China's vassal and they our feudal lord. Why should the US government say anything at this point? We only look more impotent, so far the great international accomplishment of the Pajama administration.

To their credit, an increasing number of ASEAN MPs are speaking out in support of Suu Kyi, and there appears to be a growing movement to suspend Burma's membership in the organization if Suu Kyi is found guilty and not released.

While our government looks like a whining hypocrite over this issue, more so now with this "prolonged detention" nonsense being put forward, it is vital that we continue to speak out and shame the government of the United States. For years now our government has made us more and more the slave of the Peoples' Republic. Secretary Clinton's words need to be said, but in light of the fact that she went to China to kiss their ass rather than speak out about Darfur, Burma, and Tibet, those words don't mean much. Suu Kyi, barring a miracle, will most likely continue to rot, and this time may disappear from view entirely, and forever.

So part of Hope and Change must be making ourselves more dependent on China so that we have absolutely no leverage whatsoever regarding China's human rights abuses. But let's lean on Israel to force them to accept the legitimization of an abusive terror regime bent on Israeli genocide. This is not hope. It is change however...for the worse.

Shame is an important tool in defeating the Obama regime. Here is one way to shame him and his junta. Join the Arrest Yourself 2009 campaign, a global action in support of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. Participants are asked to place themselves under a self imposed house arrest for 24 hours between now and Suu Kyi's birthday on June 19th. I will be incarcerating myself for 48-72 hours.

Take this campaign to the next logical step. Send an email, snail mail, and fax to the White House, tell them you are participating in this campaign, and that it is shameful that as President of the United States Obama is responsible for increasing our slavery to China, thus making it impossible for us to substantively aid Suu Kyi and the people of Burma, who themselves are under collective arrest by a brutal junta that China invests in and supports. It is shameful that while his administration has made itself impotent on this issue, he pressures a democracy to accept the creation of terror state that does not even acknowledge Israel's right to exist. He is a hypocrite and liar and it's about time he started hearing it.

Place yourself under house arrest. Encourage your friends to do so as well. Blog on it. Contact the White House and shame them. And do not stop until the Fraud is out of the White House.

If you would like to support one American's campaign for Burma, under the auspices of the U.S. Campaign for Burma, go here.

Thich Nhat Hanh tells us that only a collective awakening can produce change. It is time to awaken the American people not only to what is happening in Burma, but that the actions of the Obama administration make our nation complicit in the continued oppression of the Burmese people. He is not for democracy. He is not for freedom. He, like our Presidents before him, is committed to continuing to keep us a vassal of China. He has sealed our dependence on the PROC for the very survival of our economy, and thus has bound and gagged us from having any leverage with the Chinese government to end their funding of of the Somali and Myanmar regimes, as well as ending their destruction of Tibet, a nation that poses no threat to China's existence, and has committed itself to a partnership with China in order to preserve the Tibetan way of life. When Obama speaks of human rights issues he is a hypocrite and a liar, as he is on virtually any other issue he chooses to recite off his teleprompter.

Does Marketing Work Because It Makes People Stupid, Or Because They Already Are?

Warning: this post contains several obscene words and a talking uterus.

I'd like to take a step back from the news of the day to address a topic near and dear to my heart.

I hate people. I really do. Not all people, but a lot of them. People are stupid, vacuous, self-absorbed, greedy little fucking shitheads. I'll be the first to admit that I'm no saint. Certain shoes make my feet stink on ice, I can be pretty into myself at times, and sometimes have a short fuse over stupid things, and such.

I'd like to think that I'm not stupid. I have atrocious grammar, mostly because I think the rules of grammar are ludicrous, and killers of human expression. I feel sorry for people who cannot get through reading or writing anything without applying dictates that were obviously handed down by people with far too much time on their hands I mean how else do you explain the schwa e? What the fuck? But I'm not stupid. I'm not greedy either. I don't have much of anything of value other than its value to me personally, and am pretty content. Sure, it would be nice to have my own private jet to fly me to the supermarket, but I'm not really motivated to make that happen any time soon.

But you have to figure that the majority of people in this world are either stupid, greedy, self-absorbed, or mean little shitheads. If that weren't the case we wouldn't be in the mess we're in would we? No we wouldn't. It would be sunshine, lollipops and ponies.

The election of Macaque Insane Pajama is not helping humanity's cause. All it really does is enforce my theory that if you market anything the right way people will buy it eat it sell it bring it into their home expose their children to it and otherwise get involved in it any way they can.

Take medicine for instance. Turn on the TV during prime time hours and you will invariably see an ad for some kind of medication that will treat anything from common ailments to the most obscure foot fungus that only occurs in one out of every 250 trillion billion people. Many times these medications come with a long list of warnings regarding side effects that usually go like this:

Side effects may include: sudden drop of blood pressure, spontaneous bleeding, tooth loss, swelling of the genitals, aneurysm, blood clots, stroke, heart attack, seizures, vomiting, miscarriage, exploding testicles, ejection of the colon, leprosy, loss of interest in quantity surveying, hoarding of animals, eating grass, liver failure, poking strangers with pointed sticks, random aversions to fruit, hot flashes, uncontrollable ejaculation, inability to operate machinery, anti-semitism, cannibalism, watching marathon reruns of "Green Acres," smelly feet, talking uterus, undesired time travel, hallucinations, witchcraft, diarrhea, plaid tongue, lavender scented urine, flatulence, increased desire to eat newsprint, suppressed appetite, cancer and sudden death.

And despite all of this (leader points to the matzah and bitter herb) not only has the medication been approved by the FDA, and marketed, but people buy it because it might help them sleep, or help their arthritis, or give them erections lasting four hours (which, if this happens, requires the assistance of neighbors because let's face it; after an hour your partner is pretty fucking sore and needs a break. I really don't give a fuck what Sting says about having 8 hours of tantric sex...the human vagina, anus, or bellybutton was not made to endure 8 hours of constant banging). Obviously if you're faced with a terminal illness, or insufferable pain, you'd probably be inclined to try just about anything, and the pharmaceutical companies know this.

Things have gotten so miserable you'd do just about anything to change it wouldn't you? You'd even do something that you know is most likely going to be extraordinarily harmful just so that you personally will feel better, not caring as to whether or not your inability to operate heavy machinery might ruin someone else's life. You're scared and would do anything to make it stop.
You're so desperate you'd do anything the TV told you to do; like vote for Macaque Insane Pajama.

You might even be moved to something as stupid as this:

Do you think any of the parents involved in this fiasco regret the mind control bullshit this video represents, in light of the fact that it is now obvious to anyone with the capacity to reason that Pajama is a complete fraud and liar? Probably not.

People are stupid fucking idiots.

An End To The Two-State Farce?

Yesterday was the Israeli conference on seeking alternatives to the "two-state" nonsense convened by Tzipi Hotovely. Somewhere around 200 people attended the conference including members of the Knesset and the Yesha Council of settlement members. A variety of ideas were batted around, including that of annexing the entire West Bank, which was floated by Uri Elitsur. This idea has always been considered unworkable and unpopular as it has commonly been held that it would mean an eventual Arab majority. Recent demographic data suggests that the birthrate among religious Jews is the highest now, and that Palestinians are leaving the West Bank. If annexation were to happen I would imagine more would leave, perhaps for the already existing Palestinian state of Jordan.

Other alternatives were floated, though none any more practical than annexation as long as the West Bank body politic is dedicated to destroying Israel.

To my mind it is not the possible alternatives offered that are important to me. What is important is the fact that it is now openly being discussed that the "two-state" farce is not a viable option. Moshe Ya'alon has echoed what I have been saying all along:
"Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said they would never recognize Israel as a Jewish state. This reflects that the Palestinians are striving not for the 1967 borders, but for a state that would be created over Israel's destruction, from the Jordan River to the sea.

"This also explains why [Yasser] Arafat waged war against us in September 2000 - to eliminate the two-state idea, which was about to reach fruition."
Now that members of the Israeli government are finally addressing the elephant in the room there is no need for anyone to engage in the dog and pony show that is the Israel/Palestinian "Peace Process." There can be no peace when one side continues to be dedicated to the ideology of destroying the other.

Now Leftists are eager to pipe up and say that Israel is dedicated to the destruction of the Palestinians, and I once again point out to these vacuous, bigoted, ignorant, morons that if this were indeed the case, if indeed the Israelis are nothing but genocidal Nazi baby killers, then this conversation wouldn't be necessary. Every Arab man, woman, and child in the West Bank and Gaza would have been erased from existence years ago. Right? RIGHT??? Right.

One side has been committed to peace since Partition: The Israelis. One side has been committed to destruction and genocide: The Arabs. Whether it was Moshe Dayan encouraging Arabs not to flee to Jordan in 1967, Israel giving the Muslims the administrative authority over the Temple Mount, withdrawing from southern Lebanon and Gaza, or sitting down with committed killer Yassir Arafat, and then his cohort in death Mahmoud Abbas, who financed Black September's operation in Munich that resulted in the deaths of 11 Israeli olympians, Israel has stuck its neck out repeatedly and has repeatedly gotten nothing but more slaughtered civilians, kidnapped soldiers, and rocket attacks. And still the dumbshits that run this country, be it Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George W. Idiot, or Poseur Pajama, want Israel to sanction the creation of a state run by these same terrorists.

The Pajama administration, despite what was told to them by Prime Minister Netanyahu, still thinks the old Saudi peace plan is a "basis" for negotiations. When are these asshats going to get the message that Israel is not going back to the pre-67 borders? And, despite the fact that both Shimon Peres and Netanyahu have made it clear that natural growth construction of Jewish communities in the West Bank is going to continue, his Secretary of State pipes up with more tin ear lunacy:
"The president was very clear when Prime Minister Netanyahu was here. He wants to see a stop to settlements - not some settlements, not outposts, not natural growth exceptions," she said. "That is our position, that is what we have communicated very clearly, not only to the Israelis, but to the Palestinians and others. And we intend to press that point."
Newsflash Hillary: No one in Israel gives a crap. It's not the Israeli States of America. Maybe if you and your boss respected Israel's sovereignty, a condition y'all seem to be making with every other country in the world, you might get it and stop blowing all this hot air. Perhaps if y'all were as committed to stopping Iran from getting the bomb as your are to forcing Israel to commit suicide, someone in the Knesset besides Tzipi Livni would give a shit about what you have to say.

I find it telling that in all the talk from Madame Secretary and her boss about Middle East peace there was no elaboration on the "very specific proposals" that she mentioned.

Madame Secretary here's some advice from someone who spent a lot of sleepless nights campaigning for you in the primaries, and I mean this with all due respect: take what Netanyahu said to your boss, and what I've been saying on this blog for months to heart. There is no restart of negotiations until either Hamas and Fatah unconditionally recognize Israel as a permanent Jewish homeland, or there is a regime change in the West Bank and Gaza. If you can't or won't bring that to the table then shut the hell up. Go bother someone else like the Somalians so the genocide in Darfur ends, or pressure Myanmar to free Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. But please stop wasting the government of Israel's time with your bullshit. Israel is not going to be sticking its neck out anymore.

I believe that Interior Minister Eli Yishai said it best at the Hotovely conference:
"Netanyahu's diplomatic line is appropriate and justified....We must not beautify ourselves to win their [the Americans'] affection."
Do you hear that Pajama administration? No more Oslos. No more.

California Supreme Court Says No To Gay Marriage, and the Kaiser Picks

Looks like the California Supreme Court forgot about this thing called the Equal Protections Clause. Oops. Well, what the fuck do you expect? The Supreme Court didn't bother to uphold the Constitution of the State of Ohio during the election this past year so why the hell should California give a crap about the Constitution of the United States?

Here's an idea. Why don't we all run around naked and rub each other's poop on ourselves? It makes about as much sense.

And I wonder if I'm supposed to be excited about Kaiser Pajama's Supreme Court nominee. I think I'm supposed to like her because she's a woman, Latina, and has a compelling rags to success story.

Okay, I am glad the Kaiser picked a woman. I really couldn't care less about her ethnicity. There was a Jew on the short list, but we've already got Ginsberg. We wouldn't want the folks at rense.stupid to implode over there being two Jews on the bench. There's only so much their golfball sized shark brains can handle.

Her life story has already been cited by Spamitor Fuck Schumer of New York as one of the reasons why no Senator would dare stand in the way of her confirmation.
“Given her track record of excellence and moderation, and her life story, it’s going to be very hard for any senator, Republican or Democrat, to vote against her.”
My dog has a compelling life story. She was abused and neglected for the first year of her life, dumped at the shelter by her family, emaciated and nervous, laden with anxiety and fear. Now she's an incredibly friendly dog, is protective of her family, and a good sister to her new puppy. Let's nominate her. How about it Chuck, you stupid bloated trough feeding idiot?

Biography is not a reason to confirm a nominee to the highest court in the land asshole!

If New York reelects that corrupt, overgrown puspocket we may have to detach the entire state and float it out to sea.

Let's hope we have a thorough examination of her body of rulings, and that she is judged on the merits (monkeys will fly out of my butt first). The fact that she has had five decisions overturned by the Supreme Court, at least one unanimously, is not a very impressive statistic.

Can you tell I'm overflowing with confidence? I'm trying really hard to not assume that because Kaiser Pajama nominated her she must be an idiot anti-constitutionalist. Really, I am.

My biggest concern? Will she support expanding the unconstitutional powers already bestowed upon the White House, or not?

The other big question is what will her name parody be if she's confirmed? Right now I'm leaning toward "Sodamaker."

Arrow III Is A Go and Other Bits (With Updated Bits!)

It is now being reported, in a reversal of previous statements, that the US will fully fund the development of the Arrow 3 missile defense system that Israel has wanted to complete. The Arrow program has been around for some 20 years. Arrow 3 would allow Israel to defend herself from medium range missiles at distances higher and farther away from Israel.

The fact that this report was issued just days after Bibi met Barry tells me one thing: the White House is shitting its pants. Barry knows that Bibi is going to move against Iran. It has to be a matter of months now. Arab pressure to move against Iran is mounting. Providing this funding may be seen as a release of the pressure valve at Pimple Central.

While I certainly appreciate this change, I do not see this as something that will dissuade Bibi from bombing. Having missile defenses does not protect Tel Aviv, London, Paris, New York, or anywhere else from a suitcase, dirty bomb, etc., all of which Iran can deploy via Hezbollah. A problem we may soon be facing with Pakistan if it falls to the Taliban in the face of Barry's international impotence. And the fact is that Arrow 3 in an undeveloped system. It is of no immediate use to Israel.

Later in the year, the Israeli Air Force will be hosting a massive missile defense exercise with the United States where the Arrow and the USA's THAAD and Aegis systems will be tested. Somewhere in Washington someone seems to have enough sense to know that casting Israel to the wind is not a smart idea, or perhaps Barry is getting an on the fly lesson in the practical realities of Jihadism. Though more than likely he is motivated purely by wanting to be reelected.

Whatever the thinking here, or whatever the source, the Resident made his feelings known when he attempted to blackmail Israel into accepting a Palestinian state in exchange for American protection, and when he attempted to create the Syrian/Turkish/Lebanese Troika to take on Israel from the north.

All of this (leader points to the matza and bitter herb) is being complicated by the fact that Iran has deployed ships in the Persian Gulf to Aden. Iran has threatened to close the Straights of Hormuz if it is attacked because of its nuclear program. The effect on world markets is obvious and requires no explanation here. A leader of the free world would see a hostile Middle Eastern power acquiring nuclear weapons, moving to block the flow of oil, and threatening to destroy a sovereign nation, and act. Funding a missile defense system is not acting. It's the right thing to do, but it's not leading. It's back-peddling in the face of one's own stupidity.

And oh how the left are going to be disappointed to see America still working with Israel rather than facilitating her rapid destruction (holocaust) at the hands of her enemies (holocaust) and friends (holocaust).

Subliminal holocaust manipulation brought to you by Mrs. Titlebaum's Magnificent Matzaball Mix. You can't make matzoballs without mentioning the Holocaust.
In other news, tomorrow rising Likud star Tzipi Hotovely will be hosting a debate on alternatives to the "two-state solution." I suppose that there is a segment of the Israeli body politic that is finally coming to terms with the fact that the Palestinian Authority and Hamas will remain eternally opposed to the existence of Israel. Since the current situation is so intolerable that Israel was willing to build a massive security barrier it makes sense to finally try to figure out, and present an alternative, to the world community.

Hotovley told the Jerusalem Post:
"We are in a situation where Obama is presenting a diplomatic plan when it is clear to everyone that the two-state solution failed. Israel must have a deep debate and present an alternative, so the world will know that the two-state solution is not inevitable."
What such an alternative would look like I have no idea, and I suppose that if it doesn't involve Israel committing suicide the world won't like it. I think you know what I say to that.

Oh, and guess what else went right down the crapper over the weekend? A reader of a post of mine at TD Blog, emcrouchon, sent word that the Arab League has rejected the Obama/Abdullah Pan Arab Peace with Israel fiasco. What a fucking surprise.

Congratulations Pimple, you win the Jimmy Carter Prize for Most Impotent Foreign Policy. High Five!

Another NYC Explosion

On the heals of the break up of a Muslim plot to attack a Riverdale Synagogue, a bomb exploded outside an Upper West Side Starbucks early this morning. This is another in a series of explosions in NYC. The Mexican and British Consulates were targeted in 2007 and 2005, as well as the Times Square Police Substation in 2008.

Aren't you glad Homeland Security is handling these incidents, catching the perps, and prosecuting them?

Well, at least we still have to take our shoes off and have a gel ziploc bags at the airport.

This story was picked up from Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs.

The Cost of Freedom Buried In The Ground

Today we remember the fallen men and women of our armed forces. Swearing an oath to protect the Constitution from enemies, both foreign and domestic, they gave their lives in popular, and unpopular wars. But it is not enough to remember them alone. Behind every fallen soldier is a wife, husband, parent, or child who has lost a loved one. Let us remember that for every soldier sent to war there are families left behind, too many of which are never whole again.

And thanks to the National Women's History Museum, we are reminded why we celebrate Memorial Day in the first place. From NWHM:

Much of women's history is missing from our public story. One more example -- women were almost entirely responsible for the recognition of Memorial Day. Its origin was the Civil War and until recently, the day focused on the terrible War between the states that, at tremendous human cost, ended slavery.

Just weeks after the Civil War ended in April 1865, Ellen Call Long organized a women's memorial society to reconcile embittered enemies. Usually named some variant of "women's relief society," groups sprang up in both the North and South that not only memorialized the dead, but also cared for the war's disabled and its widows and orphans.

On June 22, 1865, women adopted these profound, forgiving, and future-oriented resolutions. The document read in part:
The object of this meeting is to initiate a Memorial Association...that shall perpetuate in an honorable manner the memory of the gallant dead...

In no invidious spirit do we come; the political storm that shook our country to its foundation, we hope, is passed... We are done with the [Confederate] cause...and are willing to do all that women can do to stem the tide of bitterness...and angry feelings... We will practice and teach forbearance and patience, which must finally bring peace and justice...

Our society has forgotten that women cleaned up the mess. They took the gruesome reality of approximately a half-million dead men, and by promoting cemeteries, led the way in turning blood and gore into something that encouraged serenity and reflection.

In our nation's capital filled with museums, there is not one to remind us of the totality of the experience of American women. That is why NWHM needs you. Please emulate Ellen Call Long and others who understood that the past is an essential prologue to the future. Support us, "Right Here, Right Now!" by going to and sending a letter to your Members of Congress urging them to give women's history a home in our nation's capital by passing HR 1700.

To my mind the best way to honor our fallen soldiers is to exercise the freedoms for which they died, especially when the government tries to claim you no longer possess them.

Jerusalem Is Not A Settlement or The Barry's Head Must Be Filled With Pus

Perhaps, like a pimple, the Resident's head is full of pus. This would explain why he obviously didn't hear what Israeli President Shimon Peres said to him on his visit to the Pus Palace a few weeks ago.

Peres made it very clear to the Pimple that Israel had no intention of ending the natural growth construction in established Jewish communities in the West Bank, commonly referred to erroneously as "settlements," as if this land is an overseas colony somewhere.

From the JPost:
"Israel cannot instruct settlers in existing settlements not to have children or get married," Peres said.
Joe Gaffey Duck Biden told AIPAC that all settlement activity must cease. Joe, here's a bit of advice. The only time anyone gives a crap about anything coming out of your mouth is when you are sticking your foot in it. Stop making these kinds of pronouncements. No one cares. You are embarrassing yourself.

But the most obvious clue that the Pimple just doesn't listen is that he is continuing to flap his skinny arms at Israel over the settlements. The Israeli response? Go to hell Pimple.

Israeli Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Yaalon told Israeli Channel Two:
"We will not follow American dictates. We will not halt construction in the settlements."

"Settlements are not the reason that the diplomatic process failed. The settlements were not an obstacle to peace at any point [in the talks]. Even when Israel evacuated swathes of land, terrorism continued. Even when we uprooted communities, all we got in return was 'Hamastan'. This is why I suggest we think it over - but not with slogans or dictates."
[author's translation: for those of you who still don't understand the realities--land for peace with the terrorkleptocrats is a farce and a lie and only breeds more violence against Israel so take the land for peace notion and park it where the sun don't shine.]

"We will not halt the expansion of settlements which is a result of natural growth. There are people living here, raising their children here. We need to build homes for families' residence - it's not this which has prevented peace."

The message from the PM is the same:
"We won't establish new settlements, but there is no logic in not providing an answer to natural growth."
Netanyahu also made it clear that construction in Jerusalem will continue. Quoted on Army Radio the PM said,

"It's not fair to issue a sweeping ban on settlement building, but we aspire to solve this issue through negotiations. Jerusalem, in any event, is not a settlement."

Do you get the message Pimple? The established communities will remain and will be allowed to grow. More importantly, Jerusalem will remain the undivided and eternal capital of the Jewish people. A UN flag will not fly over the Temple Mount, as was stupidly suggested by the Pimple.

It is the general consensus that new outposts will be removed. There are 20 something of these. Three have been shut down, and a fourth is in negotiations with the Israeli government. Take what you can get Pimple and forget the rest. You have no idea what you're doing, and aren't doing anyone any good with your pronouncements. Israel is a sovereign country that has been facing hostilities from its neighbors for 61 years. Israel has decided not to be complicit in its own destruction. I know this disappoints you, but you'll get over it eventually. Go have your little tantrum and call us when it's over.

No doubt Little Lord Fraudleroy will bitch and moan that Israel's position is holding up talks. No dummy, what's holding up talks is that none of the PA parties involved think a Jewish state has a right to exist. Bibi made that very clear to you in your living room last week. Perhaps you didn't hear him over the ego generated chorus in your head and clicking of the cameras. As Yaalon said in his Channel 2 interview, "From the banks of the Potomac, you don't always fully understand the situation..." I think we are seeing Israel beginning to explain that situation to the Washington Amateur Hour.

For those that don't fully grasp the big picture here, let me put it in context. Israel is currently the leader of world opposition to Obamanism, which is not too different from Bushism. The Pimple has a vision. He sees how he wants things to be. He doesn't care what anyone tells him. He doesn't care about reality. He is Veruca Salt. He wants it all and he wants it now and if he doesn't get it well...well...poopies on your head poopy face!

The current leadership of Israel sees the vision of Obamanism and is the first country to tell him to go shove it up his ass in no uncertain terms. Support the resistance against Obamanism. Support the State of Israel. Do not be silent while the Resident allows Iran to gain nuclear weapons, putting the entire planet in jeopardy. The Resident's lack of desire to stop Iran is accelerating a nuclear arms race in the region, to be facilitated that much more easily with AQ Khan free to receive guests from these countries. We are facing the rise of nuclear terrorism that will put us all at risk, not just Israel, or Jordan, or Saudi Arabia, or Egypt, or the UAE...all of us. The Pimple is not going to placate the jihadist desire to kill or convert the infidels. He is only encouraging them with his Chamberlainesque appeasement.

Do not be silent. Make your voices heard as unequivocally as Israel. Tell the Resident to stand up against a nuclear Iran. We know he doesn't care what we think, but shout it anyway. It was the silence of friends that let the Nazis succeed in rising to power.

No more.

Shabbat Shalom

It's Friday. It hasn't been a bad week personally, went by pretty fast which is always good.

Okay, so we had to watch the Resident further abdicate his responsibility to the world community vis a vis Iran, and saw the Iranian response in the form of a missile test launch that puts Israel, and parts of Europe in range of their either soon to be or secretly existent nuclear weapon. The virtual silence from the White House was really impressive, reminiscent in many ways of the last chief executive's impotence regarding North Korea.

Honestly, I have always expected that Pampers would not miss an opportunity to screw Israel, but his inability to step up on behalf of Arabs, the de facto leader of whom he bowed before during the G20 conference, comes as a real surprise. Looks like even that act of subservience was insincere in light of the fact that he is going to let the Saudis piss in the wind along with Israel, Jordan, Egypt, and the Persian Gulf states. I think I speak for a good portion of Planet Earth when I say we are not impressed.

There's a lot of other crap going on that others are writing about out here, but it's Kabbalat Shabbat and frankly it's time for crap to be set aside. So instead, shirah; soothing sounds to salve the soul.

It's only castles burning...

The levels on the audio on this one aren't so hot, but with decent speakers you can get the drift.
Whatever may be said about Stephen, he fucking rocks.

The Fat Man and the Big Man. This about sums it up.

The Iranian Nuke Question: Bibi: 1, Barry: Naught

Nunly, I hope you don't mind that I bogarted this picture from your blog.

As promised, here is my analysis as to how the Resident got his nuts handed to him on Iran. Much ado was made about the fact that Little Lord Fraudleroy refused to commit to a timetable for negotiations with Iran to bear fruit in the form of a cessation of its nuclear program before a stronger (military) option was taken. He must think that Netanyahu is an idiot. Sorry Barry, you're the one wearing the dunce cap on this one too.

First, the terms for the resumption of negotiations with the PA got laid down by your living room. At the same time you were informed that the people to whom the Iranian nukes issue truly matters (Israel and the Sunni Arab states, most notably Saudi Arabia) don't really give a crap about whether you have a timetable or not. Their timetable is the only one that matters. Whether it is Bahrain, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt...the Arabs don't want Iran to get the bomb, and stand with Israel on this issue far more firmly than you, or anyone in your administration seems to want to comprehend.

Once again Mr. Resident let me spell it out for you. While you were grinning away like the mouse that stole the cheese, the Israeli Prime Minister said this:
"...the worst danger we face is that Iran would develop nuclear military capabilities. Iran openly calls for our destruction, which is unacceptable (inaudible). It threatens the moderate Arab regimes in the Middle East. It threatens US interests worldwide.

But if Iran were to acquire nuclear weapons, it could give a nuclear umbrella (ph) to terrorists or worse could actually give (inaudible) nuclear weapons. And that would put us all in great peril."

That's right Pampers. While you and your anti-Israel cabal have been spinning a web of lies that Israel is the reason Iran wants nukes, and that you are having trouble getting the Iranians to play ball because there is no Palestinian state, the Arabs are asking, "What the fuck are you talking about? This has nothing to do with Palestinians. Don't let Iran get nukes you dummy!"

But the piece of resistance is that Bibi made it very clear that if Iran should get the bomb while Pampers sits on his dumb ass and has his namby pamby pat-a-cake session with Iran, the potentially changed face of terrorism, and the destabilization of world security will all be Barry's fault.


I wonder if Barry is going to score any points with the Sunnis if Iran threatens the guardians of Mecca and Medina with nukes? Nope, I guess not.

If find it highly ironic that the very people that Barry wanted to line up against Israel are the ones rallying to her side in order to halt Iran's nuclear program. Once again the American President fails to grasp even the most basic realities of politics and survival in the Middle East.

Who's the leader of the free world? It ain't the Resident of the United States. Bibi walked away with Barry's sack in his jacket pocket. The United States was completely helpless in stopping North Korea from getting the bomb. The Iranians know full well that Barry isn't going to do a thing. The fate of this issue does not lie in the hands of the United States. It lies in the hands of Israel and the Arabs.

The responsibility of leading the free world since WWII has belonged to the President of the United States (with Jimmy Carter being the arguable exception). Barry has broken the chain. The Free World is on its own. The United States isn't home. What a pathetic lack of leadership. This fraud couldn't lead us out of a brown paper bag.

After 8 years of that idiot in the White House I can't believe I'm saying this:

Barry Peron Jr. Jr: Worst President ever.

The Palestine Question: Well Played Bibi

When it comes to international relations in the Middle East, words and phrases have a subtlety, and a power that most US Presidents cannot comprehend. With a few words from Prime Minister Netanyahu, the Resident got a lesson in Mideast politics. Sadly, this is a lesson that he most likely doesn't even realize took place. Luckily, Mr. Resident you have me to spell it out for you. After swanspirit's comment on Netanyahu's statement I found the transcript of the press conference held today between the Resident and Israel's Prime Minister. Bibi did a little dance on Barry's face.

The Resident has been vigorously attempting to link Palestinian statehood to Iran's growing nuclear threat as I have been mentioning repeatedly. Today was meant for the Resident to show his hand, making grandiose statements about peace and two-state solutions, while refusing to commit to a timetable on negotiations with Iran. No doubt he was sitting in his comfy chair thinking, "I've got him right where I want him."

While JPost's David Horovitz incorrectly sees Netanyahu as the supplicant to the supposed leader of the free world (did someone slip the kool-aid into Horovitz's Kedem?), I saw the Resident completely out finessed. Being of the notion that Iran and the Palestinians are two wholly and totally separate issues I will write on them separately. The Resident can continue to link them, to his own embarrassment.

While the Diaper Man went on and on about seizing the moment, and Netanyahu's political abilities, trying to put the onus on Israel to move the process forward, Netanyahu outflanked him and slam dunked what we have known for decades: there is no peace, there is no Palestine without uneqivocal recognition of Israel as a permanent Jewish homeland, period. Without this Palestinian statehood does not happen.
"And for this there has to be a -- a clear goal. The goal has to be an end to conflict. There'll have to be compromises by Israelis and Palestinians alike. We're ready to do our share. We hope the Palestinians will do their share as well.

If we resume negotiations, as we plan to do, then I think that the Palestinians will -- will have to recognize Israel as a Jewish state; will have to also enable Israel to have the means to defend itself.

If those conditions are met -- Israel's security conditions are met, and there's recognition of Israel's legitimacy -- its permanent legitimacy, then I think we can envision an arrangement where Palestinians and Israelis live side by side in dignity, security and in peace."
Let's break down the break down. Hamas, as we know, does not, and from their repeated statements and charter, will not ever recognize Israel. Mohammed Dahlan, Fatah heir apparent, has explicitly stated that Fatah, the party that currently controls the Palestinian Authority, does not recognize Israel. Abu In A Suit Abbas recently went on record publicly stating that he does not recognize Israel as a Jewish state, or any other capacity. So while Pampers was basking in the glow of his diplomatic fraudulence, Bibi has now forced the Resident, and his Secretary of State, to lean on Hamas and Fatah to recognize Israel as a permanent Jewish state. Without recognition there won't even be a resumption of talks.

Any guesses how close to never that's going to happen?

Any pressure from the White House on Israel to negotiate with the PA can now be rebuffed, which may go something like this:

"Hey Bibi, this is Barry. So look, I need some movement on the whole Palestine thing, how about we all sit down for a chat."

"Sounds great Barry. You got Fatah and Hamas to recognize Israel as the permanent Jewish homeland? Great."

" exactly."

"Not exactly as in no?"

"Well, no."

"Oh, I see. Well, you call me when you manage it. Shalom!"

Trust me when I say that Bibi can do that for four years without batting an eye. So much for Palestinian statehood. That is of course unless the United States, in conjunction with the world community, can manage to pull off a little regime change action. I'm not holding my breath on that one either.

The other portion of the statement that most likely went over the Resident's head was, " also enable Israel to have the means to defend itself." This is a reference to the borders. They will not be at the '67 green line. Any final borders will have to result with Israel controlling the Judean Hills, and the Jordan Valley. Anything less and Israel walks away.

So now Pampers and the PA have to decide what's more important: statehood or destroying Israel. Diaper Man sure has been spouting on and on about how important it is for the Palestinians to have a state. He's also on record saying that Israeli security is a "top priority." Now he has nowhere to hide. If Palestinian statehood is sooooo important to the Resident, and Israeli security is a "top priority" we should see immediate movement from the Department of State to push Hamas and Fatah to recognize Israel as a precondition to any resumption of negotiations. So far the PA has invariably chosen trying to destroy Israel, which is why the Palestinians keep getting screwed by their leaders, and have their movements restricted by Israel with checkpoints and fences.

Tushy Obama saw none of this coming, thinking he's got Israel by the nuts. But Bibi followed my advice. With the dexterity of a moyel, Bibi took Barry's sack; on the Palestinian issue, and Iran.

Dr. Heckle and Mr. Liar: The Latest Waffle

In the run up to Prime Minister Netanyahu's visit to Washington tomorrow, The Jerusalem Post is running an article today regarding the Tushy's thoughts on Iran and Israel:
With respect to concerns Israel might carry out an air strike against Iranian nuclear facilities, the US president said that since Israel is "right there in the range" of Iranian missiles, "their calculation of costs and benefits are going to be more acute."

Obama remarked that he did not think it was his place to "determine for the Israelis what their security needs are."
That's a far cry from his administration's stance that Israel will not be protected from Iranian aggression if it does not commit national suicide by accepting the Palestinian mafia terror state run by Abu In A Suit Abbas, or his statement earlier in the week that he would not be pleased if Israel surprised the United States by launching a strike against Iran's nuclear capabilities.

I have news for the Liar Who Would Be King. This is what the Prime Minister of Israel said while running for office:
"If elected I pledge that Iran will not attain nuclear arms, and that includes whatever is necessary for this statement to be carried out."
On Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, or as some "liberal" bloggers might call it, "Jewish Emotional Manipulation Day" (I'm sorry but I couldn't resist slapping the bee's nest), the Prime Minister made it clear that a Holocaust denying regime was not going to be allowed to launch a second Holocaust.

So, Diaper Man, if you sit around with your thumb up your ass while Iran fashions its refined uranium into a bomb, an Israeli attack on their nuclear facilities will not be surprise at all will it? You were warned. Of course the Resident didn't have the cojones to make this statement himself. He sent an envoy to Israel to convey the message. Nothing says tough like an envoy.

So let's review shall we? Diaper Man tried to blackmail Israel into accepting the terror kleptocracy state by threatening to offer no protection against Iran. He then tried to sell the Arabs a story that Iran is going to get the bomb because Israel wouldn't accept said final solution. Unfortunately for Pampers Israel has so far made it clear that it will not submit to blackmail, and the Arabs aren't buying the bullshit Pampers is shoveling. Whoops!

In his visit to Washington, Israeli President Shimon Peres made it clear that Israel is not going to curb the "natural expansion" of existing Jewish settlements in the West Bank. What does this mean? No Palestinian state on the pre-67 borders. No blackmail. So Barry is going to have to let go of that fool idea. The Arabs have made it clear they are not happy about Pampers false linkage between Palestinian statehood and Iranian nukes.

There is one final piece of the puzzle. What is Netanyahu going to tell the Tushy? If I were in his shoes I would tell him that there will be no Palestinian state on the '67 borders. There will be no Palestinian state controlled by Hamas and Fatah. Israel will do what it must to secure itself from a nuclear Iran, and does not take cues from the United States, or accept threats from any nation in determining what is best for her security and survival.

It comes down to this: Who is going to walk away from the visit with their nuts intact and who is not? If Netanyahu stands up to Barry then the Resident's impotence on the world stage will be complete. He could not rally the Arabs to his side to join in on the Israel/Iran blackmail, because he refused to see that the Arabs are more interested in preventing a nuclear Iran than they are in destroying Israel. He was laughed at during the G20 regarding his NATO forces demands. His bowing down to the head of the House of Saud accomplished nothing but national embarrassment.

If Netanyahu tells Pampers that Israel will not submit, much as Menachem Begin did in 1981, which Martin Sherman reminded us of this past week, then, for the first time since World War II (with perhaps the exception of the Carter administration), the face of international relations is completely shifted. Already the United States has limited credibility when it comes to dealing with the Taliban (the threat of a Taliban takeover of Pakistan is a far greater threat to Israel than Iran as Pakistan has nuclear weapons now, and Ehud Barak agrees with me). He has compromised NATO by sanctioning military exercises between Syria and Turkey, and Turkish arms sales to virtually Hezbollah controlled Lebanon. Can you tell me what our current policy is regarding Afghanistan, other than declaring there is no Al-Qaeda presence there? There is precious little in the way of policy being enacted toward the resurgent Russian empire other than a misspelled reset button.

Pampers predicated his entire foreign policy on uniting the Arab/Muslim world with the West over the destruction of Israel, but the Arabs don't want to be destroyed by a nuclear Iran either. The Resident failed to see that because he is an unqualified clown who has no business being in the White House, and who put his dislike of Israel and the Jews above the interests of the world and our allies. The worst part is that he is surrounded by people who know that but who are enabling him, and the rapid erosion of our standing as the leader of the free world.

Barry loves to apologize to the world for the Shrub. The Shrub was shocking to the world because they are used to seeing the President of the United States as being the leader of it in many respects. The arrogance and bullheaded stupidity of Shrub must have been a jolting shock. Now we have Pampers not only apologizing for this, but abdicating the leader of the free world mantle all together. I find it ironic that while he runs around the world apologizing for Shrub he continues to screw us at home by continuing to enact all the worst Shrub policies like FISA, and TARP, while maintaining the sham that is DHS.

Congratulations Mr. Resident. You are the worst President ever. And it only took you five months to do it.

Bibi, do Israel, and the American electorate a favor. .לחתוך את הביצים

Giant Hurt Ball

Tests have revealed that a single cantaloupe tested positive for salmonella at a farm that supplies cantaloupes to North and South Carolina as well as South Hill, Virginia Wal-Marts. No cases of illness have been reported so far. Your reaction would no doubt be similar to the one that has been issued by "officials."

Anyone who has purchased a cantaloupe between last Sunday through Friday at any Wal-Mart in the aforementioned areas has been cautioned to destroy them.

Obviously washing them thoroughly before cutting them open and consuming them is too radical an option.

Obliterating the suspect cantaloupes is the prudent way to go.

The following are my recommended ways to dispatch a potentially, but most likely uncontaminated melon...

Just Like I Said

Remember when I told you that Tushy Obama was going to try and make Israel the reason why his administration was unable to move on Iran's nukes, and would try and sell the Arabs a story that because of Israel's unwillingness to commit national suicide for a fake peace with them Iran was going to get the bomb?

From my April 21 post:
What Tushy Obama, and his anti-Israel cabal don’t understand is that Israel does not need the United States’ approval to bomb the mother loving crap out of Iran. Israel does not need access to Iraqi airspace to bomb the mother loving crap out of Iran. What the United States fails to understand is that some of the wealthiest and most powerful countries in the world have a vested interest in Iran never getting nukes and, as they did in the wake of the Osirak bombing, will be more than happy to grant Israel all the political cover it needs, where she needs it: behind closed doors. These countries are not happy that Tushy Obama is dragging his feet allowing Iran to get the bomb, a problem all the more urgent now that the UN has revealed that Iran has enough enriched uranium to build a bomb, nor are they going to buy his potential cover story that it is Israel’s recalcitrance that is preventing his administration from acting substantively (which would have to be the narrative he tries to sell them as the Arabs are never going to sing Cumbaya with the Persians, no matter how many Cokes Tushy Obama buys them).
Well guess what? That's exactly what happened. And, as I also said, the Arabs aren't buying it.

From Caroline Glick (thank you to Joshuapundit for listing this as a must read as I missed it last week):
As Obama's chief of staff Rahm Emmanuel made clear in his closed-door briefing to senior AIPAC officials this week, the administration is holding Israel indirectly responsible for Iran's nuclear program. It does this by claiming that Israel's refusal to cede its land to the Palestinians is making it impossible for the Arab world to support preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.

Somewhat inconveniently for the administration, the Arabs themselves are rejecting this premise. This week US Defense Secretary Robert Gates visited the Persian Gulf and Egypt to soothe Arab fears that the administration's desperate attempts to appease the mullahs will harm their security interests. He also sought to gain their support for the administration's plan to unveil a new peace plan aimed at isolating and pressuring Israel.

After meeting with Gates, Amr Moussa - who has distinguished himself as one of Israel's most trenchant critics - said categorically, "The question of Iran should be separate from the Arab-Israel conflict."
The Tushy Obama administration tried to blame Iran's nuclear program on Israel's refusal to concede to the creation of a terror state dedicated to her destruction. When that didn't work the cast of idiots is changing its tune. Now we're supposed to believe that it is Israel's possibly existent nuclear weapons that are to blame. Which would be true if Israel had ever made any threatening overtures like saying they wanted to wipe Iran off the map. Funny but I think it was Igogettajob saying that about Israel. Whoops!

[Do you think anyone in the Tushy Obama administration actually knows there is a difference, but also a deep seeded hatred between the Persians and the Arabs? I'm not really sure. However, it is very clear from their deeply held notion that Iran and the Arabs would stand together in their mutual hate of Israel and the Jews, how much they loathe the existence of the Jewish state.]
Just as the administration is unmoved by objective facts that expose as folly its single-minded devotion to the notion that Israel is responsible for the absence of peace in the Middle East, so the Arab rejection of its view that Israel is to blame for Iran's nuclear program has simply driven it to escalate its attacks on Israel. This week it opened a new campaign of blaming Israel directly - through its purported nuclear arsenal - for Iran's nuclear ambitions.
Do you think anyone in the Tushy Obama administration actually knows there is a difference, but also a deep seeded hatred between the Persians and the Arabs? I'm not really sure. However, it is very clear from their deeply held notion that Iran and the Arabs would stand together in their mutual hate of Israel and the Jews, how much they loathe the existence of the Jewish state. The Resident hates Israel. He always has. I told you all this was his game. I told all my Jewish friends who voted for the asshole. I wonder if they're getting the picture now?

Glick also agrees that Tushy's policies are in fact sanctioning Israel to attack Iran's nuclear facilities.
As a consequence, the operational significance of the administration's anti-Israel positions is that Israel will not be well served by adopting a more accommodating posture toward the Palestinians and Iran. Indeed, perversely, what the Obama administration's treatment of Israel should be making clear to the Netanyahu government is that Israel should no longer take Washington's views into account as it makes its decisions about how to advance Israel's national security interests. This is particularly true with regard to Iran's nuclear weapons program.
Rationally speaking, the only way the Obama administration could reasonably expect to deter Israel from attacking Iran's nuclear installations would be if it could make the cost for Israel of attacking higher than the cost for Israel of not attacking. But what the behavior of the Obama administration is demonstrating is that there is no significant difference in the costs of the two options.
If the choice is die at Pampers' hands, or fight to live another day (with the tacit backing of the Arabs who do not want a nuclear Iran, a fact that must make the Tushy want to light his hair on fire), Israel will fight. And guess what folks? There isn't anything the Resident can do to stop it.

What Tushy doesn't understand is that if given the choice between the creation of Palestine and preventing a nuclear Iran, the Arabs are going to pick no nukes. Here's a little secret friends: the Arabs don't give a fuck about the Palestinians, and they never have. They hate the Jews, but couldn't care less about the Palestinians; yet one more thing the Tushy doesn't seem to understand.

The one thing that I still haven't figured out yet is if Rahm Emmanuel is pushing this policy because he supports his boss's dedication to destroying Israel, or because he knows this policy will push Israel to attack Iran, which is the only real way Israel's safety can be guaranteed. After the events of the last couple weeks I'm really starting to think it's the latter. He couldn't be stupid enough to think the policy makes sense can he? Well...stranger things have happened.

And is anyone else starting to wonder whether Defense Secretary Gates is no smarter than a sack of sawdust? I know I am.

The Tushy Obama administration is just another circus of incompetence, like Bush's before it. It's quite tiresome and, for a number of people, potentially deadly. The only piece of the puzzle remaining vis a vis Israel is whether or not Netanyahu will tell the Tushy to shove it up his ass.

What Did You Expect?

My my, so much handwringing, so little time. Everyone's getting their bowels in an uproar over healthcare reform. The Republicans and Conservatives are freaking about socialized medicine. PUMAs want real healthcare reform.

I'm going to ignore the right's complaining because, as we all know, the right's talking heads call anything that they didn't come up with "socialist," which is a bit of a problem now that we have a genuine Stalinist in the White House. The right sounds like the boy who cried wolf to quite a few people, and tinfoil hat to many others. And while I agree that Tushy Obama's policies are flushing our constitutional republic right down the crapper, along with what's left of our liberties, it was Ronald Reagan, the supposed god of conservatism, who stood against at least half of what conservatives claim they stand for (defending the Constitution and fiscal responsibility), who picked up the ball that Nixon dropped when Liddy and the Goon Squad got busted trying to rig an election they were already going to win. Talk about fucking stupid. And the the leftists all think the right are fascists, which I find ironic as the Left is as, if not more, fascist than their counterparts on the right, so I really don't give a ratfucking shit what any of them have to say.

But I have a question for PUMAs. Why in the hell are you trying to get genuine healthcare reform out of this Congress and this Resident? Isn't this government controlled by the same douchebags that brought us May 31, 2008, shat all over Hillary Clinton, sanctioned the caucus fraud, and used ACORN to put the fix in Ohio and elsewhere? Do you honestly think they care? Do you honestly think they are listening? And if for some miraculous reason they were, what makes you think that a government that can't even properly operate and maintain a hydroelectric plant is going to possess even the remotest capability of running a single payer healthcare plan, or any other universal plan? Are you people on drugs? If so, hook me up so I can live in the alternate reality too.

You need to wake up and smell the coffee. The person who was advocating real healthcare reform is not in the White House. You're not going to get Hillary's healthcare plan. It's not going to happen, no matter how many emails you send or phone calls you make. Until there are term limits, the two party system is shattered, and the government is forced to adhere to the boundaries created for it in the Constitution, we are screwed (that thuddy sound is me banging my head against the wall). But you keep trying to get that healthcare reform.

Don't get me wrong. Fighting for healthcare reform is worthy. We need serious changes. But when you are appealing to a body that doesn't give a crap, and is obsessed with its own power you ought to be fighting that first, not trying to get it to do anything that benefits you. In case you haven't heard the name of their game is, "What's best for us is best." What you want doesn't matter. You need to change the game. If you're not concentrating all efforts on that you are wasting your time.

So what would healthcare reform look like for me? Let's start with what you don't do. You don't put the administration of American's healthcare in the hands of the federal government. Would you leave your child at a daycare whose motto is, "Dropping infants on their heads since 1972?" No, you wouldn't. We have a bureaucracy in place already. What's the real problem? The price of health insurance makes it out of reach for millions. Insurance companies deny treatment for "pre-existing conditions" and "experimental treatments," and we are flushing a fortune down the crapper subsidizing the healthcare of people who are here illegally. That doesn't make me racist, though the DNC, the Tushy administration, and ACORN says it does. Read my lips...GO FUCK YOURSELVES.

So what should we do? First, as usual, we throw the bums out and reclaim our government and republic. Then we replace the medicare tax with a healthcare tax that goes into a pool. The government serves as the middle man between us and the insurance companies. Pre-existing condition and experimental treatment conditions are eliminated. You see who you want, when you want, and get the treatments you need. No rationing, no government access to your medical records, no star chamber deciding what procedures you can have and cannot have. I'm also open to a system that drives down costs, and has no tax involved, as long as the pre-existing conditions, etc are gone, and the consumer has total freedom to choose their doctors, care, and procedures.

I think someone had a plan like that. Her name was Hillary Clinton. She's not the President. We're not getting healthcare reform. But you can bet that we are gonna get screwed.

Turn your head and cough.

Hypocritical Hot Air from the Playboy Space King

An interview with king Abdullah appeared in the Times Online today where he went rambling on about how Israel is either going to accept peace or be peace's obstacle. It really is a shining example of the mindset of the Arab body politic. Apparently Israel's standing in the way of peace is the reason why 51 Arab countries don't recognize her. Let's do an OMV breakdown of the bloviating playboy's interview.
We are sick and tired of the process.
I suppose this would be the process of trying to destroy Israel for the past 61 years. I imagine it is frustrating to Arab manliness to accept that in all this time, even with the backing of the Soviets, and America's kowtowing to OPEC, that they haven't managed get rid of the Jewish state, which could possess the nuclear capability to vaporize the playboy and all his pals.
We are talking about direct negotiations. That is a major point. We are approaching this in a regional context. You could say through the Arab peace proposal. The Americans see this as we do and I think the Europeans. Britain is playing a very vital pro-active role, more than I have ever seen in the ten years of my experience in bringing people together.
Wow, face to face talks. You mean the kind Arabs have been refusing to have with Israel for decades? My aren't you fucking generous.
What we are talking about is not Israelis and Palestinians sitting at the table, but Israelis sitting with Palestinians, Israelis sitting with Syrians, Israelis sitting with Lebanese. And with the Arabs and the Muslim world lined up to open direct negotiations with Israelis at the same time. So it’s the work that needs to be done over the next couple of months that has a regional answer to this — that is not a two-state solution, it is a 57-state solution.

That is the tipping point that shakes up Israeli politicians and the Israeli public. Do you want to stay Fortress Israel for the next ten years? The calamity that that would bring to all of us, including the West? This has become a global problem.
And why is the fortress, both physical and mental, necessary Abdullah? I don't suppose it could be because your father and his friends began a 61 year campaign to eliminate your Jewish problem, could it? Your bullshit is straining my hypocrisy meter to the limit. And I see that, once again, Israel's desire to protect itself from destruction is a "calamity." Why don't you just say what's on your mind Abdullah; the calamity is Israel's continued existence.

Believe it or not, it gets better...
If you consider that a third of the world does not recognise Israel — 57 nations of the United Nations do not recognise Israel, a third of the world — their international relationships can’t be all that good. More countries recognise North Korea than Israel. That is a very strong statement when we are offering a third of the world to meet them with open arms. The future is not the Jordan river or the Golan Heights or Sinai, the future is Morocco in the Atlantic to Indonesia in the Pacific. I think that’s the prize.
Yes, there is someone with their head jammed further up their ass than Tushy Obama: Abdullah of Jordan. Israel is supposed to get a hard on because you say the Arabs and the Muslims will finally accept Israel's existence with open arms, as long as Israel commits suicide. No wonder you think Tushy understands the situation. You are in complete agreement. Israel gives up her security and you will all love her while you kill her. That fortress you're referring to is the Arabs' fault you moron.

So when Israel says, "No, Syria can't have the Golan, we will not accept the '67 ceasefire lines, or consent to the establishing of a Palestinian state run by political parties that are dedicated to destroying us because it is a complete compromising of the security of our people against the Arab world that has never stopped trying to destroy us," the failure to reach peace will be because of Israel. Nice. And what does the douche say will be the result of Israel's stance that her security is paramount, protected by boundaries that prevent her enemies from rocketing her out of existence?
We’re going to have a war. Leading up to the Lebanese war, I said there was going to be a conflict with Israel. I said it four or five months before. I said it would happen either in Lebanon or Gaza. It was Lebanon. In November, I said there would be another war in Lebanon or Gaza. I thought it would happen when Obama was in office but was surprised by it happening a month earlier. If we delay our peace negotiations, then there’s going to be another conflict between Arabs or Muslims and Israel in the next 12 to 18 months — as sure as the other conflicts happened.
So, like the Tushy, the message from the playboy is Israel accepts suicide or we kill her.

Fuck you both.

Scotty, I think you beamed us down to Planet Asshat.
