Peres, Pollard and the Presidential Medal of Freedom

As you all are no doubt well aware, Israeli Vice President for American Affairs, Baruch Obamabaum, is awarding the Medal of Freedom to life-long Israeli terrorist and war criminal Shimon Peres. This makes perfect sense because I believe that there is some sort of secret Vice-Presidential order that probably reads like this:

“To be bestowed whenever possible upon war-mongers, terrorists and just plain assholes who are able to make their crimes against humanity disappear like Jimmy Hoffa’s body. Whenever possible, this award should also be considered for winners of the Nobel Peace Prize, an award whose by-laws are pretty much the same.”

But not so fast. There is a ground swell of support against Peres getting this award. Yes indeed. There is even a petition with over 10,000 signatures on it already. No, it’s not the Gilad Atzmon letter, which I happen to think was secretly authored by space aliens (or Christopher Bollyn and Eric Hufschmid – same thing really), but I digress. And no, this groundswell of populism doesn’t seem to be coming from Code Pink or even CNI.  Nope, it’s coming from the Republicans (and Democrats) favorite country, Israel.  Here it is:

Now for those of you who have not yet mastered the official language of the United States government, here is a Google translation of the petition. Please note, Google translate sucks, but it seems to pretty much get most of this one correct.

In honor of Israeli President Shimon Peres
Honorary President of our country,
 
Re: Urgent action release Pollard

Israeli citizens we wish to congratulate you for that U.S. President decided to give you theU.S. Medal of Freedom symbolizes the values of justice, freedom and human rights, and got your statement that the Medal is dedicated to us, the citizens of Israel.
 
However, precisely because of higher values of this medal represents, we feel that we can not accept the receipt at the same time that the U.S. still holds the Jonathan Pollard hybridization for over 27 years with American officials now also a first class already admit that the continued detention is contrary to morality and justice.
 
We ask you to take advantage of the unprecedented diplomatic position to take immediate action for Jonathan’s release prior to receiving the medal. Only in this way can be to prevent the receipt of the Medal of Freedom would be a mockery to Jonathan and for our country.

With great appreciation,
Citizens of Israel

Hope you all were able to figure it out. If you were not, please sign up for Shas Party membership. To do so you can go here, here, or here.

Please send the link to the petition to “your” (hahahahahaha) representatives in the House and Senate and have them sign it. For the very few of them who do not speak Hebrew you can send them this link with instructions on how to sign the Hebrew petition without one even having to know what it says. They do this all the time with legislation like the Patriot Act, so what’s the BFD?

In fact, go sign the fucking thing yourselves. Here’s a pic of the instructions.

So go for it.

And here is a link to show you how to contact your very own (hahahahahahahaha) congressman and senators to send them the instructions on how to sign the petition. As I have indicated, the directions are so simple even Shas Party members can follow them – hence CFI Herman Cain should have no problem.
