Ovadia Boehner

Ovadia Yosef

What is anti-Zionist? It is a lie, it is a term which they have concocted themselves. I served for ten years as a Chief Rabbi – a key public position in the State of Israel. In what way are we not Zionists? We pray for Zion, for Jerusalem and its inhabitants, for Israel and the Rabbis and their students. What is Zionist? By our understanding, a Zionist is a person who loves Zion and practices the commandment of settling the land. Whenever I am overseas I encourage Aliyah. In what way are they more Zionist than us?

1. What an asshole. As most readers of this site are aware, including Shas Party members, we’ve been making fun of the Shas Party for quite some time here. Nothing makes the tuyuur here at Mantiq al-Tayr laugh their assess of more than the utterly insane comments of the Shas Party’s “spiritual” leader (and by “spiritual” we mean “racist motherfucker”) which grace almost every single statement he makes. At least he’s consistent.  Let’s take a look at some of his recent work. You can’t make this up.

First, commenting on Israel’s current crisis with Turkey, a NATO member:

(Note to Shas Party members, red highlights are mine.)

“Turkey, Burkey, God Almighty couldn’t care less about them.

“It’s all nonsense. If God lays his hands on them for one moment – they’ll be made miserable in a minute. We believe in the salvation of God Almighty. We have God Almighty and we are his sons. The one who defeated Pharaoh, Egypt and Haman – will defeat all of Israel’s enemies.”

The same article quoting this clown also notes how he wishes death for the Palestinian leadership and considers the Palestinian people “evil.”

“Two of the rabbi’s statements have sparked a lot of anger, and even diplomatic tensions. Last Year, ahead of Rosh Hashana, Yosef Mahmoud Abbas and his people, who he called “evil enemies of Israel.”

“The rabbi mentioned the blessing said at the Jewish New Year feast that states, “May our enemies and adversaries be destroyed,” and applied it to the current situation. “Abu Mazen (Abbas) and all those evil men – may they perish from this world. May God Almighty strike them and these Palestinians.”

Now, this very same violent religious extremist also recently went to Dan Shapiro, who may as well be an Israeli intelligence agent, I mean what possible difference would it make if he were replaced by a major Mossad official?, but I digress. Anyway, this flaming nut job recently met with the “US” (hahahahaha) ambassador to the Jewish State and said that the Shas Party supports peace. Really? This after wishing death on the Palestinians? Then, after he told Shapiro that he supports “peace” the real message came out:

“Yosef also implored Shapiro to do everything in his power to bring about the release of Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard from prison in the US.”

I bet you that Israeli Vice President for American Affairs (IVPFAA) Baruch Obama lets Pollard out of jail if he looks like he’s going to lose to one of the Shas Party crazies the Republicans are putting up for election next year. But I digress. Let’s get back to Ovadia Yosef.

Are you a leftist? Then you are an  an evil angel.  No kidding. Enjoy this:

“HaGaon HaRav Ovadia Yosef Shlita on Shabbos lashed out against the Israeli left-wing, calling people associated with the movement “Malachei Chabala”, destructive angels. The Gadol HaDor made his remarks during a weekly shiur in Har Nof. He explained that we all have angels to our right and left and while the one on the right always fights on our behalf, the one on the left works against us. The Rav explained that in Israel we too have a left, and they are Malachei Chabala.”

Nutty ass Rabbis often blame natural disasters in the US on US policy toward Israel which can never be subservient enough as far as they are concerned. Yosef though takes the bagel, so to speak:

“After Hurricane Katrina which decimated New Orleans, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef mentioned that “It is a punishment for the United States for supporting the disengagement.”

“They deserve it. Bush was from those responsible for expelling Jews from Gush Katif, he told Sharon to expel the Jews. Here there were 15 thousand, there [in New Orleans] there were 150 thousand. This is his punishment for what he did to Gush Katif. If there were elections now he would lose. All those who participated in this atrocity will get punished.”
Okay, that’s enough for now about Yosef. Oh, wait. Let me drop one more quote from  this nut job.
“In an October 2010 sermon, Yosef stated that “The sole purpose of non-Jews is to serve Jews”. He said that Gentiles served a divine purpose: “Why are Gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat. That is why Gentiles were created.”

And that, goys and girls, is about as good a synopsis of American Christianity as  you will find anywhere.

2. House Speaker, John Boehner (pronounced “Israeli Firster”), on Sunday humiliated all true Americans in typical Israeli-ass kissing fashion with his speech before the Jewish National Fund in Cincinnati, Israel. It was the sort of speech that both Ovadia Yosef and Dan Shapiro would have been proud of. I’ve linked to the whole speech here, but here’s a couple of choice quotes so you can get the taste of what’s it’s like to kiss Israel’s ass so thoroughly.

Here’s a quote about how great it was to have Netanhayu speak to Congre$$ last spring.

““For me, one of the most powerful occurred in May when Prime Minister Netanyahu addressed a Joint Meeting of Congress.“It was my honor to invite him.It was the least I could do for the leader of one of our closest allies in the world.“Bibi did not disappoint. He received nearly 30 standing ovations … bipartisan standing ovations. All well-deserved.“Ladies and gentlemen, I invited Prime Minister Netanyahu to address Congress because the American people deserved to hear from him – and Washington, quite frankly, needed to hear what he had to say.”

Now, doesn’t that just give you the heebie jeebies?

How about this pear of wisdom?
“Supporting Israel and her people has been the policy of this nation since Harry Truman sat in the Oval Office.“Our commitment to Israel should be no less strong today. If anything, it should be stronger than it’s ever been. And, with your help, it will be. It must be.”
Boehner does seem to have a sense of humor:
“The Israeli proclamation  imagined a state based on freedom, justice and peace, one that guarantees freedom of religion, conscience, language, education, and culture.“It spoke of a country that would foster economic development for the benefit of all its inhabitants.”
This one is also interesting regarding 911:

“The recent anniversary of September 11th was a reminder of our shared pain.“There is only one place in the world outside the United States that lists the names of all the innocents who died that day.“It is located on a hilltop at the entrance to Jerusalem. And it was built by the Jewish National Fund. Thank you.”

3. So what is the Jewish National Fund? Well, for starters the

“Jewish National Fund is listed by the IRS as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.”

The following is from their website on the page entitled “The work we do.”

“Jewish National Fund was established more than 100 years ago by a small group of leaders, including Theodor Herzl. By purchasing plots of land, they hoped to establish the groundwork for the birth of our nation of Israel. JNF continues to make a commitment to the land and people in the 21st century. While we still plant trees and create parks, our organization does so much more. Read on to see how we’re making a difference for generations to come.”

What the JNF is, of course, is a racist organization masquarading as a charity which seeks to benefit Jews at the expense of the Palestinians while simultaneously getting tax breaks for doing so by both the US and UK governments. If you want to learn more about their nefarious activities that you are subsidizing, you can get a free ebook about the JNF here. In fact, why not download a copy and email it to John Boehner?

Here’s a quote from a review of the above-mentioned book:

“Ilan Pappe’s introduction reveals through the open commitment of the JNF’s founders to the expulsion, what is today termed “ethnic cleansing,” of the native Palestinians and their replacement by Jewish immigrants. Pappe discusses the JNF’s success in obtaining much of the land pillaged from the Palestinians by the Zionist militias through murder and violence in 1948 and its effective control of much more through its role as an agent of the State of Israel in keeping almost all the land surface of Israel for exclusively Jewish ownership at the expense of Israel’s one million Palestinian citizens. The author shows the JNF’s audacity in presenting itself as a “green” movement as it plants trees with the express aim of obliterating all traces of ethnically cleansed and destroyed Palestinian communities. ”

Here’s a quote about another chapter in the book from the same review:
“Uri Davis examines the British Park, proclaimed in a sign there as “a gift of the Jewish National Fund of Great Britain.” The British Park is built on the ethnically cleansed Palestinian villages of Ajjur and Zakariyya, making the UKJNF complicit in war crimes and unfit for charitable status on grounds of multiple violations of international humanitarian law. Astonishingly, Prof. Davis alleges that the British Park is used to store some of Israel’s nuclear weapons of mass destruction. “

Turns out that the BDS movement also reviews another free ebook about the JNF for all the tree huggers out there. And yes, I love trees too and have given more than one a nice big hug. I just don’t hug ones planted by the JNF, but I digress. Anyway, the book is entitled: Greenwashing Apartheid: The Jewish National Fund’s Environmental Coverup and you can get it for free here.

Here’s a quote from the very short review on the BDS site:

It documents evidence that the JNF is not an environmental organization but rather an instrument of ethnic cleansing and complicit in war crimes. Contributors are from the USA, UK, Canada and Palestine, with an afterward by American writer and environmental activist Joel Kovel. In the book, Akram Salhab describes the environmental disaster by the JNF’s draining of Lake Hula and Corey Balsam analyses the ideological role of tree planting. David Schwartzman makes the connection between the JNF, the siege of Gaza and climate security, while Coya White Hat-Artichoker, a member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe, contributes a speech on First Nations-Palestinian solidarity.”

So that’s the group Boehner was talking to. Makes you proud to be an American, doesn’t it?

4. Our first video is a training video for anyone who wants to get involved in the “American” political system. This very short video, so short it will not challenge the attention span of even the most avid Shas Party members, gives you everything you need to know to be a successful “American” politician.

I really enjoy the work of Deek Jackson. Here’s his latest video lovingly entitled “Suck My Veto” or something like that.
