A True Zionist's Opinion Of Todays' Israel

This from Joe cannon, over at cannonfire. I have nothing to add.
Gavin Gatenby, our friend from down under, directs our attention to this story. These are the words of Labor Member of Parliament Sir Gerald Bernard Kaufman. If you think you've already read everything you need to know about recent events in the Middle East, you have not yet read this:
I was brought up as an orthodox Jew and a Zionist. On a shelf in our kitchen, there was a tin box for the Jewish National Fund, into which we put coins to help the pioneers building a Jewish presence in Palestine.

I first went to Israel in 1961 and I have been there since more times than I can count. I had family in Israel and have friends in Israel.

One of them fought in the wars of 1956, 1967 and 1973 and was wounded in two of them. The tie clip that I am wearing is made from a campaign decoration awarded to him, which he presented to me.

I have known most of the Prime Ministers of Israel, starting with the founding Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion. Golda Meir was my friend, as was Yigal Allon, Deputy Prime Minister, who, as a general, won the Negev for Israel in the 1948 war of independence.

My parents came to Britain as refugees from Poland. Most of their families were subsequently murdered by the Nazis in the holocaust. My grandmother was ill in bed when the Nazis came to her home town of Staszow. A German soldier shot her dead in her bed.

My grandmother did not die to provide cover for Israeli soldiers murdering Palestinian grandmothers in Gaza. The current Israeli government ruthlessly and cynically exploits the continuing guilt among Gentiles over the slaughter of Jews in the holocaust as justification for their murder of Palestinians. The implication is that Jewish lives are precious, but the lives of Palestinians do not count.

On Sky News a few days ago, the spokeswoman for the Israeli army, Major Leibovich, was asked about the Israeli killing of, at that time, 800 Palestinians-the total is now 1,000. She replied instantly that "500 of them were militants."

That was the reply of a Nazi. I suppose that the Jews fighting for their lives in the Warsaw ghetto could have been dismissed as militants.

The Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni asserts that her government will have no dealings with Hamas, because they are terrorists. Tzipi Livni's father was Eitan Livni, chief operations officer of the terrorist Irgun Zvai Leumi, who organized the blowing-up of the King David hotel in Jerusalem, in which 91 victims were killed, including four Jews.

Israel was born out of Jewish terrorism. Jewish terrorists hanged two British sergeants and booby-trapped their corpses. Irgun, together with the terrorist Stern gang, massacred 254 Palestinians in 1948 in the village of Deir Yassin. Today, the present Israeli government indicates that they would be willing, in circumstances acceptable to them, to negotiate with the Palestinian President Abbas of Fatah. It is too late for that. They could have negotiated with Fatah's previous leader, Yasser Arafat, who was a friend of mine. Instead, they besieged him in a bunker in Ramallah, where I visited him. Because of the failings of Fatah since Arafat's death, Hamas won the Palestinian election in 2006. Hamas is a deeply nasty organization, but it was democratically elected, and it is the only game in town. The boycotting of Hamas, including by our government, has been a culpable error, from which dreadful consequences have followed.

The great Israeli Foreign Minister Abba Eban, with whom I campaigned for peace on many platforms, said: "You make peace by talking to your enemies."

However many Palestinians the Israelis murder in Gaza, they cannot solve this existential problem by military means. Whenever and however the fighting ends, there will still be 1.5 million Palestinians in Gaza and 2.5 million more Palestinians on the West Bank. They are treated like dirt by the Israelis, with hundreds of road blocks and with the ghastly denizens of the illegal Jewish settlements harassing them as well. The time will come, not so long from now, when they will outnumber the Jewish population in Israel.

It is time for our government to make clear to the Israeli government that their conduct and policies are unacceptable, and to impose a total arms ban on Israel.

It is time for peace, but real peace, not the solution by conquest which is the Israelis' real goal but which it is impossible for them to achieve. They are not simply war criminals; they are fools.

A Sea Of Trash

Left behind by Obama's adoring cultists is a huge sea of trash, left for somebody else to clean up.

Just like any ghetto... how typical.

Heh Heh

Well, Obama is the head man what am in charge now.

Just you wait until all his moon-struck fans and followers discover that they have a genuine Uncle Tom on their hands.

The hilarity is about to begin. Once the late nite talk show hosts get over their jitters about being called racist, the flood gates of half-white half-black humor will open, a whole new field of exploration for the likes of Letterman and Leno.

Pass the popcorn.

Enough Already!

Don't know about you, but I'm really sick and tired of all this fawning over Obama by the TV networks.

To listen to the likes of Wolf Blitzer and his fellow Zionists, you'd think Obama was the promised one.

Personally, I see Obama as just another political hack, a product of the Chicago political machine - the most corrupt anywhere - and a man in full backpedal mode from his promises and commitments he made during the campaign.

So far, his only ideas on how to fix anything has been to spend more money, more money and more money.

Gonna be a great ride with his hack as prez, perhaps even as great as the ride we just finished with Bush the Simple.

Good Question

Joe Cannon over at Cannonfire asks the obvious:
Believe it or not, Israel is now offering clear warning of a new "massive war" in Lebanon. When is the Shitty Little Country going to be held accountable for its crimes?
I didn't ask the question, but I do agree with it.

A New Day Is Dawning

Wow... Sure looks like that's a bridge out ahead.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - California's controller says he will begin a 30-day delay on tax refunds and other payments starting Feb. 1 because the state is running out of money.

Controller John Chiang said Friday he must delay $3.7 billion in payments next month because lawmakers have failed to address California's growing deficit.

With a $41.6 billion shortfall over the next year-and-a-half, the state is on the brink of issuing IOUs.
Yup... our elected politicians have spent us all into bankruptcy, and now they're starting to beg off on what little money we've got coming to us.

As California goes, so goes the nation.

And there you are... Wondering why I think we should take them all out and hang 'em high. Of maybe you think a pocketfull of IOU's from your local politicians is a good thing.

One thing for certain... If we don't do something, they'll just keep taking and taking until there's nothing left, because Obama has already said he's going to spend us out of this disaster, and the only money he can get is ours.

DSL Blues

Been having a ton of problems with my DSL connection, starting just after Christmas. The DSL would bomb out for hours at a time, and dozens of times a day.

The phone Tech just finished re-wiring everything... put the alarm, all the phones and all the jacks on one line, then put a dedicated filter and one continuous dedicated line to the DSL modem.

Works better than it ever has...

So it's back to my scurrilous comment schedule as per usual.
