All of these people have visited Israel since Israel’s newest ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, took on the job of representing Israeli interests in Israel back in May of this year. All are senior members of the Trump administration. Friedman is quite proud of this accomplishment.
Earlier this month, Friedman spoke to the Zionist Organization of America, a gathering that was just crawling with traitors and assholes. More on that, maybe, in a later post.
Talking at the ZOA gala in New York, Friedman went into a pro-Israel porn rant that would make anyone outside of the Shas party with shit for brains seriously question where his loyalties lie. He makes the former Israeli ambassador to Israel, Dan Shapiro, look like a member of Hizbullah’s Central Committee.
Note to Shas Party members, all red highlighting is done by today’s guest editor Mulaykah al-Amrikiyyah. She and Haifa have agreed to trade off on being guest editor. No fears, Hasan will be back soon too.
Did you know that: “No loyal American need ever apologize for loving Israel and urging our Government to support it. Support for Israel is a quintessential American value.”
This Zionist Bullshit was immediately followed with: “And so having the mandate from the President to strengthen the relationship between the United States and Israel is simply the opportunity of a lifetime, and a day does not go by where I do not thank God and seek his guidance regarding this extraordinary mission.”
So his mandate is not to represent the US but to instead have the US become even more servile to its Israeli masters. Sure is nice that he seeks God’s guidance in his mission. Foreign policy really should be based on faith in an invisible man who talks to (some) people?
But it gets much, much, oh so much fucking worse. With Zionism it always does.
Did you know that a US president must be loyal to Israel and that doing things Israel doesn’t like is “betrayal”. Yes, the US somehow managed not to veto UN resolution 2334 which, among other things, tells the Israelis to stop fucking around in East Jerusalem. Friedman focused on the Western Wall in Jerusalem (which might actually be part of a trash dump, and may very well not be the wall Friedman thinks it is, but I digress), because it is illegally occupied territory according to the wording of the text, which is exactly what it is. Not vetoing this resolution is, according to Friedman “. . .perhaps the greatest betrayal of Israel by a sitting president in American history. . .”
That’s right, the Oval Office has to be loyal to a foreign power and it ain’t Russia.
Fortunately now that Trump is in the White House, everything is kosher again. After false framing the UNESCO fiasco and praising fellow (fellowette?) Israel-firster Nickki Haley, Friedman tosses out this gem:
“In May of this year there were two firsts that you may have noticed. Early that month I had the privilege to MC the very first Yom Haatzmaut celebration in the White House, hosted by VP Mike Pence. Later that month, and far more striking, President Trump became the first sitting president to visit the Kotel Hamaaravi – the Western Wall, a visit that resonated throughout the Middle East. I should also note that just a day before that visit, I was the first US Ambassador in history to attend a celebration for Yom Yerushalayim. I think we’re making progress.”
Yom Ha’atzmaut is Israeli independence day. Yom Yerushalayim is Jerusalem Day a day celebrating the
reunification the complete theft of the entire city of Jerusalem. Crazy bigoted nut case Israelis like to use that day to run all over Arab parts of the city and harass the shit out of the Palestinians.
“This year, Israeli media tended to portray the harassment and terrorizing of Palestinian residents by settlers celebrating Jerusalem Day as isolated incidents, but the fact is the entire day and its festivities are designed to disrupt and undermine Palestinian life in the city.”
So they had another huge annual hate fest and for the first time the US ambassador (and I use that term losely) attended an event associated with it. Even a Shas Party member can see what is wrong with this.
But let’s get back to celebrating Israeli Independence in the White House. The event was hosted by the utterly completely zionized Mike Pence, who btw, the Democrats want to have replace Trump. Also BTW, he is coming to Israel soon for Hanukah, but I digress. Here are some of Pence’s comments as recounted by an extremist who attended this desecration. Emphasis in bold is by the author this piece.
“And so today we celebrate and we marvel at all that Israel and her people have accomplished…Israel is an eternal testament to the undying fortitude of the Jewish people, to the unfathomable power of human freedom, and to the unending faithfulness of God. Indeed, though Israel was built by human hands, it’s impossible not to sense that just beneath their history lies the hand of heaven (emphasis by original author). For as God tells us in his word, speaking to his people so long ago, “I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
I have had to read, for a variety of reasons, a hell of a lot of stuff in Arabic done by extremist types and this is exactly how they sound – which should really not be a surprise to anyone. Judaism blended with Zionism is pretty similar to Islam blended with Wahhabism. No wonder Israel and Saudi Arabia understand each other so well.
Pence also said:
And under President Donald Trump, let me assure you of this — if the world knows nothing else, the world will know this: America stands with Israel. (Applause.) President Trump stands with Israel for the same reason that every freedom-loving American stands with Israel — because her cause is our cause. Her values are our values. And her fight is our fight.
He should have added: “And her wars are our wars.” But he didn’t because he didn’t have to.
He drones on:
You know, I’ve seen firsthand the President’s deep affection for Israel and all who cherish her, and so has the world. Just last week, President Trump stood with Holocaust survivors during the National Days of Remembrance. And he declared, “I will always stand with the Jewish people, and I will always stand with our great friend and partner, the state of Israel.”
And here comes the Christian Zionism:
For my part, my Christian faith compels me to cherish Israel as well as our deep alliance and historical ties. The songs of the land of the people of Israel were the anthems of my youth when I was growing up. You know, my wife and I had the privilege of visiting Israel in 2004 and 2008, and we fulfilled a lifelong dream to bring all of our children to the Holy Land in December of 2014. It was a joy — inexpressible.
It just gets worse and worse as you read on. With Zionism it always does.
Let’s also get back to the Jerusalem Day hate fest:
Sure am glad the US – did I mention that I use this term loosely – ambassador was proud to be part of the day’s events. In fact, he attended a function that day that was organized by “senior level” people in the right-wing settler movement. The worst of the worst. Huckabee was there too. Jesus Christ.
The flag parade at the end of day is a big part of the whole racist exercise.
“The “Jerusalem Day Flag Parade” has long been an annual excuse for Jewish dominionists – those who seek to transform Israel from a democratic ethnocracy into a theocratic ethnocracy – to treat the Palestinians of Jerusalem as they generally treat Palestinians in the rest of the occupied West Bank. That is to say, as detested temporary guests whose eventual planned expulsion is openly discussed.”
“As in the past, the march ended at the Western Wall plaza – created by Israel’s ethnic cleansing of Jerusalem’s ancient Moroccan Quarter in the first days of the occupation – where Bennett and other Israeli leaders heaped praise on guest of honor, US businessman Simon Falic.”
The Falic’s family name should be spelled differently. I will never buy duty free again. Imagine using a charity as a front for Israel, I mean who would think of that? 🙂 Netanyahoo gets most of his campaign money from the Falics and a couple of other families residing in the US.
So I guess it is fitting that Simon Falic is the guest of honor at the end of the most racist part of a racist day.
Coming back to the end of Friedman’s speech, we are treated with even more gems:
“So you don’t have every senior member of the administration travelling 6000 miles to a tiny state if it’s not a critical ally. The proof is incontrovertible.”
“I have been committed to the safety, security and prosperity of the State of Israel all of my adult life. President Trump was well aware of that commitment when he formally nominated me – on the day of his inauguration, the earliest possible date. He did all he could to ensure that I was the first bilateral ambassador confirmed by the Senate. And I was.”
“The PM of Israel and I both agree that we have turned a page on the relationship between Israel and the US. It is a change decidedly for the better. Please join with me in the years to come as we continue to strengthen and enhance the unbreakable bonds between these two great nations.”
2. Speaking of questionable charities – take a look at the Kars4kids scandal. It is cars for Jewish kids – they just hide it from you in their commercials. It is based in that great bastion of well – greatness, Lakewood, New Jersey.
Most of Kars4kids money goes to a sister organization called Oorah and Oorah gets most of its money from Kars4kids.
“Oorah also offers scholarships to those desiring to spend a gap year abroad in Israel.”
3. It’s video time. Boy do I have some treats for you all today. Note to Shas Party members, it’s okay if you just want to skip to the Lee Camp video at the bottom of the page.
46 seconds of John Oliver who seems to be on to the KarsforKids scandal.
Shows that they have been misleading donors for years.
Here’s a short video (under 40 seconds) by USA Today on the joys of having Friedman as Ambassador.
And here is Lee Camp (warning, he gets a bit raunchy) with a nice two minute rant. You can why he didn’t get the job in place of Friedman. But if I ever become president he will. Oh, and I have Caitlin Johnstone to thank for turning me on to Camp’s “Redacted Tonight” show on RT.
