1. Mike Rivero made a most interesting comment during one of his excellent radio shows this week when he noted that with all the torture stuff coming out now we can really see just how much lying we’ve been subjected to by our so-called leaders. He noted, correctly, that there is probably much much more that we’ve been lied to about that has never ever been brought up. Well, we here at Mantiq al-Tayr have come up with a potential solution that will enable our learning what it is that we don’t know that we don’t know that we don’t know – whatever. Anyway, we got that solution from the disgusting Michael Scheuer who about two weeks ago in the Jerusalem Washington New York Times Post had an article in the Outlook section that promoted torturing detainees because torture, according to Scheuer, works. I’m not even going to link to his disgraceful anti-America article. If you want to read it, go look for it yourself. He’s not worth reading and it is because of people like him that the CIA is the sick and perverted institution that it is. At least he’s not there anymore. But, yet again, I digress.
Since “our” or should I say “Israel’s” congressional leadership is composed of liars who support torture, I suggest that we have Mossad Jane, Nuremburg Nancy, Death-camp Diane and a host of others arrested and have them waterboarded, slam their heads against walls, and expose them and their children to wild insects. Then maybe we can find out what else it is they are hiding from us.
Just a thought.
2. There’s lots of the usual bitching and moaning among the Israel-first lobby about how the Obama administration is screwing Israel by making the mildest of suggestions that just maybe, perhaps just for a few seconds, Israel might, pretty please, might want to think about obeying international law. Researching some of this has been fun and has led to my finding some really hilarious quotes.
Here is a howler of an article. The title itself is worth citing.
Obama Administration Should Defer to Israel’s Expertise
Now at first glance you probably would think that the author was talking about torture techniques. But he isn’t. He’s wailing about the so-called two-state solution being back on the table.
Here’s a sample from the article itself, written by an obvious Islamofascist named Roz Rothstein. [I bet he is a Shi’ite to boot.}
It was wonderful to see how AIPAC continues to grow and to feel the sense of global support for Israel which fills the air with a steady buzz. Speakers reinforced the importance of the American-Israel relationship and were greeted with applause and standing ovations.
[Good God, what a bunch of traitors these people are]. Anyway, it gets better.
The halls were filled, the mission to avert an Iranian imposed nuclear catastrophe was clear, and the love for Israel was palpable. Yet I left Washington with a heavy heart.
Poor Baby. He was most upset with Death-Camp Diane.
Senator Dianne Feinstein encouraged the large delegation of California voters to help push in this direction. She said, “Talk about it in your synagogues, your communities. Talk about the two-state solution in Israel.”
[Gee, if they are talking about politics in the synogogues, shouldn’t their tax-exempt status be revoked?]. Not to worry, though, Roz informs us. Israel knows what’s best. It’s more revealing than he realizes.
Contrary to Senator Feinstein’s claim, now does not seem to be the time. Unjustified “excuses” have not prevented a two-state solution. There are real and serious obstacles to its realization.
Yes there are. Israel.
Israel wants peace and knows first-hand the facts on the ground that have prevented it.
A most interesting choice of phrase. The entire settlement movement was based on the premise of creating facts on the ground in order to keep most, or all of, the West Bank.
The U.S. administration should defer to Israel’s expertise, not repeat the misguided policies of the past and impose premature solutions from afar which could have disastrous repercussions.
I see the above quote as an almost unveiled threat. If Obama does anything Israel doesn’t like, then there could be “disastrous repercussions” for him. Kind of like what happened to Jimmy Carter, George H. W. Bush, Paul Findley, Cynthia McKinney and maybe even JFK.
All supporters of Israel should work together to ensure that the administration does not pressure Israel into premature, dangerous concessions, but treats it as an equal — a sovereign, successful state that desperately wants peace but that knows from bitter experience what will and will not bring peace closer.
“All supporters of Israel” – another nice choice of phrase. What about “supporters of the United States”? But that’ is not what AIPAC and Roz are all about. They are about one thing and one thing only – Israel.
Here’s an insightful quote from another article about Joe “I am a Zionist” Biden’s speech to AIPAC. It shows that all this “tough love” commotion in the Main $tream Media is baloney.
While Biden sought to portray the White House’s emerging policy toward Israel as a break with the preceding administration’s agenda, it actually didn’t differ all that much from the Bush playbook.
Now here’s a great story by a female Islamofacist named Janet Levy. She is pissed, and I mean pissed, because two Jews working with Cindy Sheehan have put up some billboards. She writes like she considers these two Jews to be traitors. I consider them to be Americans. In fact
I like it. Spread it around.
Levy’s article is very much worth reading because it will tell you a lot about the very good people who are behind the billboard. Some very good organizations that all of you should know about.
The butchered ostrich, the petrified kangaroo cowering in a basement corner, the tortoises crushed under the tank treads – all were held up as evidence of the pitiless nature of the Israeli occupation. . .
The army also initially denied that soldiers deliberately wrecked the zoo that provided Rafah’s children with virtually their only contact with live animals, even ordinary ones such as squirrels, goats and tortoises.
