1. Today’s featured picture, done by the usual suspect, is in honor of the Guardian’s dishonesty and just plain shit-headedness vis-a-vis its hiring of an extremist right wing wacko name Joshua Trevino. Read this latest piece by Ali Abunima in which he documents the Guardian’s sleight of hand. What jerks.
2. Now let’s get onto the cool stuff. First of all the one and only, the great, the magnificent, the most holy Ovadia Yosef has once again come out and exposed Jewish extremism for being the insanely bigoted ideology that it is. By the way, we here at Mantiq al-Tayr deny any and all allegations to the effect that Ovadia is a secret-agent on the Mantiq al-Tayr payroll whose job it is to unmask before the world what a crazy bunch of wackos run the Jewish State. We had nothing to do with it, nothing.

How’s this for a great quote?
During his weekly lesson on Saturday night, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, Shas Party spiritual leader, harshly criticized the Israeli justice system, labeling it a “court of gentiles,” using a Talmudic term. Rabbi Yosef stated that according to Jewish law, judges presiding over Israeli courts should not be allowed to be witnesses at Jewish marriage ceremonies, implicating religiously observant judges as well.
The rest of the article is a scream as well including a quote from Yusef noting that women’s testimony in court is against Jewish law. However you’ll need to register with HahahaAretz in order to read the whole thing. But the following should suffice:
“Whoever presides over a court of gentiles, and judges using the laws of gentiles, gives up the Torah of Moses, and is called wicked,” said Rabbi Yosef on Saturday night. “They judge according to the laws of the nations, not the Torah. They accept testimony from women. This is against the Torah,” continued Rabbi Yosef.
3. NitWitt Romney’s asshole buddy, Benjamin Netanyahu, appoints a war criminal as the head of “Home Front” security. You can’t make this shit up. Oh, and the NYT fails to point out that minor problem.
A 19-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a brutal and apparently unprovoked attack against four young Palestinians in downtown Jerusalem early Friday morning. The attack was allegedly perpetrated by dozens of Jewish teens, whom eyewitnesses say were wandering around the area “searching” for Arabs to beat up.
And where is the surprise in a country where war criminals are role models?
Jamal Julani, one of the victims of the attack, remains in serious condition, according to authorities. Julani, 17, from Jerusalem’s Ras al Amud neighborhood, was admitted to the intensive care unit at Hadassah University Hospital, Ein Karem, in critical condition and is on a respirator. His mother told Haaretz that he has woken from his coma but is very confused, did not remember the assault and did not understand why he was in the hospital.
