Rouhani On Republicans

Iran President Hassan Rouhani sits in Tehran with a smile on his face as Republican after Republican boasts of their desire to bomb the hell out of Iran and bring peace and prosperity to the Middle East. “Sometimes, when I have time, some of the Republican debate was broadcast live and I would watch it, some of it was laughable. It was very strange, the things that they spoke of. Some of them wouldn’t even know where Tehran was in relation to Iran. Some of them didn’t even know where Iran was geographically.”

Such observations on the political situation in the Middle East are unfair to Republicans. Heck, some of them do not even know the President of the United States was born in that country. The real ignorance among Republicans is:

1. None of them knows that the CIA working with the British MI6 destroyed democracy in August, 1953 by overthrowing Prime Minister Mossadegh and allowing the Shah to gain power. This played out in the 1970s when the Shah was overthrown and clerics seized power.

Never expect any Republican to know anything about Middle Eastern history.

Voice From Iran Gallery

I confess to sort of liking President Rouhani of Iran. Heck, I would not take his job for all the money that Donald Trump claims to have. At home in Iran he has to deal with crazies who make American crazies look sort of normal human beings. For every Ted Cruz we have in this nation he has God knows how many Revolutionary Guards who are dying for a fight. Anyway, President Rouhani came out in support for President Assad in Syria. OK, so he did admit,”this doesn’t mean the Syrian government does not need some reforms, of course, it does.”

Heck, Iran has invested billions and billions of dollars in Syria and who enjoys seeing their investment going down the terrorist tunnels? Mr. President,how about,contact Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and getting both armies together to wipe out someone? Might be the start of a wonderful friendship!

The Bad Deal??

Voices of doom insist the agreement with Iran is the first step toward destruction and chaos in the Middle East. Jewish billionaire Sheldon Adelson, who gave over $150,000,000 to Republicans in 2012 has now become the center of wisdom for Republicans who dislike the agreement. Of course, if Sheldon said he was for the deal, then every Republican candidate would be shouting their support. Sheldon did offer an alternative to the current agreement. He suggests dropping an atomic bomb in a desert region of Iran to show we mean BUSINESS!

Despite all the shouts and anger about negotiations with Iran the opposition has yet to offer an alternative. Mort Klein of the Zionist Organization of America is for Ted Cruz: “a man who tells the truth.” Where have American Jews wound up? Defending a man who is against working people, against women rights, against health care, and so on and so on. Yes, he is a man who tells the truth–at least the truth as to what he believes in.

Closer To Iran Treaty

Throughout America Jewish groups such as AIPAC are spreading fear and hate in order to halt a major step toward peace in the Middle East. Senator Bob Casey of Pennsylvania and Senator Chris Coons of Delaware are the latest to tell AIPAC to mind its own business and allow the world to gain peace in the Middle East. Those opposing the Iran agreement ignore this is NOT an American agreement.It is an agreement that is supported by six major nations. If the fear mongers have their way, the United States would have difficulties in the past reaching any agreement with another nation. We would become ignored on the stage of international diplomacy.

What if America follows the Bibi Netanyahu fear?

1. The US would have to attack Iran because it would resume its quest for the atomic bomb.

2. Russia and China would end sanctions and sell anti-missile defense material to Iran.

3. Hezbollah in Lebanon would fire at least 50,000 missiles toward Israel. Even if 95% were destroyed,at least three thousand would hit targets in Israel causing the death of thousands. THIS is the end result of AIPAC suggestions.

A Jewish View Of Iran

Larry Cohler-Esses, correspondent for the Jewish newspaper, Forward, spent seven days in Iran. He talked with officials as well as ordinary Iranians. “Far from the stereotype of a Fascist Islamic State, I found a dynamic push and pull between a theocratic government and its often resisting and reluctant people.” Most Iranians distinguished between the policies of Israel and the issue of Jews. They did not display hatred of Jews, but like many people who love Israel, but disagree with its government, they want peace, not war.

He also noted the fact there are somewhere between 9,000 to 20,000 Jews in Iran.They can walk the streets of Tehran wearing a Yarmulka.just about the only safe city for Americans in the Middle East is -Tehran!

Israel Jewish Terrorism

I have been told by many Jews that I am a ‘self hating Jew” who really hates Israel. My crime? Concern that ALL Israelis, Jewish, Christian or Muslim be accorded their rights as human beings. During the past three months there have been 154 reports of attacks by West Bank settlers upon Muslims, including the murder of a child and her father. OH, and the murder of a Jewish girl in a Gay Pride parade–not at the hands of Muslim terrorists, but at the hand of an Ultra Orthodox terrorist. By the way there is no evidence that a single West Bank settler has been charged with any of the 154 incidents. The nut case Orthodox man who murdered the Jewish girl is in jail– he killed a Jew, so some action must be taken.

The key word is-APARTHEID. I realize that no decent Jew loving Jew would ever employ that word to describe Israel, but, what the heck, it is the best description of what has and is, occurring in Israel. Iran is NOT the threat to the survival of Israel. The key element in maintaining Israel as a democracy is– the behavior of JEWS!

Jews For AIPAC

Chuck Schumer is allegedly an American who happens to be a member of the Democratic Party and its goals for peace in the Middle East. But,Chuck is also a Jew who happens to believe whatever he is told by AIPAc must be true so he announced his opposition to the agreement signed by SIX NATIONS including the US with Iran. Chuck does not “believe that Iran will change.” Notice,there is nothing in his belief system about believing that Israel under Benjamin Netanyahu will change. For example, during the past three months there have been 154 assaults on Palestinians by West Bank settlers including the death of a child and his father. Oh, no one has been arrested, let alone convicted for these crimes.

Chuck,here is reality.

1. No agreement means the other signatories to the agreement will claim that sanctions are over.

2. Russia will provide Iran with anti-missile weapons.

3. China and Russia will be more than willing to assist Iran in any way including–nuclear development.

4. Bomb Iran as AIPAC desires means mass chaos throughout the Middle East.

5. Suicide bombers galore all over Israel.

Chuck, how about placing American interests before those of AIPAC?

Kerry Talks Blunt Reality!

Secretary of State John Kerry offered Congress a trip into the world of reality, not the world of nonsense in which they live.

“If Congress rejects this, Iran will go back to enrichment, the Ayatollah will not come back to the table. I don’t know how I go out to another country if that happens and say you ought to negotiate with us cause they will say, ‘well, you have 535 secretaries of state in the US. We don’t know who we are negotiating with.”

If the deal is rejected, then Iran will go back to enriching and seeking to make an atomic bomb. At that point, this is what will occur:

1. The US will bomb Iran.

2. Hezbollah in Lebanon will send off its THIRTY THOUSAND MISSILES. The Dome, built with money from Obama, will knock out 90% of the missiles. This means about 1500 missiles will hit Israel and cause thousands of deaths.

3. Suicide bombers will make life horrible for Israelis.


Republicans On Iran

Members of the Republican party are very upset because Barack Obama has negotiated with some very, very bad people. Where did this guy get the idea that America should engage in discussions and negotiations with evil leaders? Heck, Representative Ed Royce made clear that when the US negotiates with evil doers, “Iran grows stronger, and we will be weaker to respond.”

1. As I recall, Richard Nixon reached out to Communist China, a nation that had killed over 20,000 American soldiers. Look what happened when Nixon helped China become a great industrial nation!

2. As I recall, St. Ronald Reagan, the great tough president, negotiated nuclear agreements with Russian leader, Mikhail Gorbachev and no Republicans accused him of betraying America, let alone Israel.

3. From the beginning of the Cold War in 1946 until its end in the 1990s, EVERY American president negotiated with Communists who proclaimed their desire to end capitalism!

4. In the real world, not the world of Republicans, nations negotiate with one another.

Jews For Jerks!

I was raised in an era when Jews were in the front line fighting for social justice and seeking to end hatred and war. But, today, we have Republican Jews who are ready to support any damn idiot who claims to be a Republican. After Mike Huckabee, the man who opposes rights for black, Hispanics, Asians, lesbians and gays, is now on the top list of idiots that Jews in Iowa are ready to support. We American Jews have come a long way from the Rabbis who marched with Martin Luther King or supported the liberal ideas of Franklin Roosevelt.

Will Rogers, chair of the Polk County, Iowa Republican party has made clear that Republican Jews he encounters are pleased with the cray comments of Mike Huckabee who claimed that President Obama was ready to send Jews “to the door of the ovens.” Another Holocaust, and those will not be carried out by Adolf Hitler, but by Adolf Obama.

What the hell has happened to Jews in America??
