Ever “Endangered” Israel!

Among the great myths of modern times is that Israel is “surrounded by enemies and in danger of being destroyed.” Each and every Republican intends to make clear to the Jewish Lobby in this nation that he or she is the best friend for Israel and he or she promises to prevent Israel from being destroyed by Iran. Mike Huckabee, a Christian fundamentalist who believes that only good Christians go to Heaven has now stepped up to make clear that he is Israel’s number one friend. I trust that Sheldon Adelson is now ready to send him a few hundred million bucks.

Mike is upset the security and safety of Israel is being threatened by you-know-who. He accuses President Obama of being “so naive that one day he will take the Israelis and march them to the doors of the oven.” Wow, another Holocaust. Well, examine the facts:

1. Israel has EIGHTY ATOMIC BOMBS. It could obliterate the entire nation of Iran.

2. Israel has submarines which could send missiles toward Iran.

3. Israel has the best air force in the Middle East.

If Iran dropped single atomic bomb, the Israel air force would wipe Tehran off the face of the earth.

Enough with the “surrounded Israel” bull shit.

Bowing To Republicans Wrong Move

Secretary of State John Kerry has been forced by AIPAC and Republicans in search of Jewish votes to sound tough towards Iran. Just as President Rouhani in Iran has to come across as tough toward America,so must Kerry behave like a sheriff in a western town who can beat anyone when it comes to drawing a gun. So, he wound up threatening Iran with bombs if they failed to live up to the agreement. Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif mocked Kerry by saying, “Unfortunately, the US Secretary of State once again talked about the rotten rope the ability of the US to use military force.”

Republicans,and their buddy in Israel sound the trumpets of war against Iran, but they become furious if an Iranian responds the same way. The end result of the AIPAc agenda is to transform American foreign policy as a fight between two boys challenging one another as to which is the real tough guy on the block.

When Will Israel Learn?

The recent successful achievement of a treaty with Iran offers an interesting opportunity for Israel leaders to seek attaining similar agreements with Palestinian leaders. The Iran negotiation occurred after months of non-stop interaction between the Six nations and Iran.At any moment, John Kerry and the others could have walked away in disgust at failure of Iran to back down from their ideas.Kerry was relentless, he refused to take, “no” as an answer. He was focused on the end result and did not allow verbal slights or seemingly negative behavior to result in defeat.

There is a lesson for Israel. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continues attacking Palestinian leaders for their actions. If they seek support from the UN it is a negative action according to Netanyahu. If they seek action by the International Criminal Court then they are criminals. The good news is that Palestinians are willing to accept international law. That is a welcome idea from any Islamic group within the Middle East. Bibi Netanyahu has refused to work with John Kerry and thus no accord with Palestinians!

It’s Terrible, It’s Horrible!

As I recall about thirty years ago then President Ronald Reagan signed an agreement with the Soviet Government in order to reduce arms and atomic weapons. As I recall, the Communists wanted to destroy capitalist nations and become the dominant power on Earth. As I recall, not a single Republican condemned Reagan for negotiating with a foreign nation that wanted to wipe out America. As I recall, back in 1972, Republican President Richard Nixon negotiated a treaty with Communist China, a country that had killed 25,000 Americans. Congressional Republicans went along with this agreement.

Alas, President Obama negotiated a treaty with a country that has never killed an American, and has never posed any danger to the existence of the USA. Every Republican candidate now condemns the treaty with Iran as horrible, disaster, and so on. And, not a single one has offered an alternative. In other words, when Democrats do what Republicans do, the only conclusion is that whatever they do is HORRIBLE!

Bibi Explains Everything

It did not take Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu much time to clearly explain the entire Iran nuclear agreement.As you recall,Bibi told the American Congress that just let him handle affairs and Iran would be begging for mercy and agree to whatever he demands.This is the Netanyahu explanation for what happened last week.

1.If not for Netanyahu denouncing the entire negotiation, the final product would have been much more favorable to Iran.

2. The actual agreement is terrible,and awful.If not for him no one would be using such words to denounce the agreement.

3. It is time for Israel opposition parties that refused to back him to now support him in order to show Iran that Israel is united.

4. In other words when Netanyahu is proven wrong it simply means that he was right all the time and his opponents were wrong until they agreed with his views.

I trust that is clear to one and all.

Israel Listens To Haters

I do belong to Jewish temple and thus have been made aware by the local Rabbi that under no conditions am I allowed to utter negative words about the state of Israel. To do so indicates that I “hate Israel” and that I am an “anti-Semite.” Secretary of State John Kerry and EU foreign ministers, a collection of people who “hate Israel” and are, by definition, “anti-Semites,” urged Israel to cease its proposed program to demolish the village of Khirbet Susiya. It is a PALESTINIAN village on land that was originally allocated by the United Nations to Palestinians. But, there must be progress, which for the Israel government means removing Palestinians from land that belongs to them.

Kerry said: “We’re closely following developments and we strongly urge the Israel authorities to refrain from carrying out any demolition of the village.” This is a clear indication the Obama administration hates Israel and hates Jews! To love Bibi Netanyahu is a commandment of God Himself.

Iran Deal Or No Deal

One of America’s leading authorities on foreign policy has weighed in on the recent deal with Iran,and given his past ability to grasp the subtle aspects of conducting negotiations with other nations, it is time for President Obama to reflect on what he claims to have accomplished. Former Governor Rick Perry’s comments should make Obama pause and reflect for a moment. The man who sort of got confused as to which departments are in the Cabinet is dead sure that Obama made a terrible mistake. “What I saw out of the President today, and this is of great consternation to me, I saw a very naive man who does not know how the world works, who cannot put the dots together.”

President Obama was working with five other important nations who, I assume, have some grasp as to how the world works. Frankly, I doubt if Perry could even locate Iran on the map. His comment is that of just about every man or woman seeking the Republican nomination. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if one of them could actually offer an ALTERNATIVE PLAN! Oops, I forgot, Donald Trump wants to lead soldiers into battle.

Bibi Says NO, NO, NO!

It is quite apparent that Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is the chief foreign policy advisor for Republicans. After all, he “speaks for Israel.” Of course, he has never captured more than 30% of the Israel vote. He made clear the agreement with Iran was a “disaster” that would change the world and lead to permanent war. An assumption of the current Israel government is that a permanent state of war is the best path to peace. UK Foreign Minister Philip Hammond expressed the frustration of many: “The question you ask yourself is what kind of a deal would have been welcomed in Tel Aviv. The answer of course is that Israel does not want any deal with Iran.”

The basic question to pose Netanyahu is what exactly is his alternative. Ordinarily, he cries out for war against Iran. So,what would occur if US planes bombed nuclear sites in Iran?

1.Hezbollah would send its 30,000 missiles towards Israel.

2. Assume that 95% are shot down. That leaves about 5,000 missiles hitting Israel.


The Art Of Political Selling

There is one pattern that has existed throughout the Obama administration, and that is his inept political ability to sell a good idea. Obama always behaves like a college professor who lectures and then assumes his “students” understand what was presented. Compared to Theodore or Franklin Roosevelt or John Kennedy or Abe Lincoln, Obama has completely failed to SELL his ideas. Sorry Barack, but a great president is a great salesperson.

1. Lincoln was a master of presenting complex ideas along with a joke or a demand that Americans display their greatness as people.

2. John Kennedy on day one of his presidency told the American people “what can you do for America?”

3. In 1940, England faced Nazi Germany alone and had run out of guns and ammunition. Most Americans did not want to go to war. So, in one of his fireside chats with Americans, Franklin Roosevelt used this metaphor: “if your neighbor’s house catches fire, and he comes to you asking to borrow a fire hose, surely, you would give him one. We are going to lend England destroyers and rifles and other equipment.” And, so England got military supplies that enabled it to continue fighting Germany. I have never heard a single metaphor from Obama that enables people to grasp an issue.

4. One night after America was at war, Franklin Roosevelt asked the American people to listen to him as he reviewed where American soldiers were fighting. By late evening, one out of two Americans had listened and followed his analysis of where fighting was going on. How many Americans today even know where Syria or Iraq are? Obama has never discussed these areas of fighting with Americans following with a map.

5. To this day I am shocked that we Americans never received an explanation about Obamacare from the government.

If Obama wants to sell this accord with Iran, he must become a president who talks WITH AMERICANS!

Hillary In Land Of Jewish Money

Among the endearing myths about Jews is that they are people with enormous wealth. An examination of the top five wealthy people does not reveal a single Jew. But, there are wealthy Jews and there are wealthy Jews who consider themselves experts on the Middle East. They are quick to sound the battle cry of ANTI-SEMITISM whenever anyone dares to utter a complaint about Israel. Hillary Clinton ventured into the land known as Hollywood, where a few rich Jews do live. Naturally, she made certain one and all heard her love of Israel:

1. She opposes any effort such as boycotts against the West Bank. To do so, is proof the person hates Jews. I thought they opposed West Bank settlers, not the rest of Israel.

2. She promised to “fight against any further attempts to isolate Israel.” Actually it is quite easy to cease any isolation–just adhere to INTERNATIONAL LAW about the West Bank.

I am certain Hillary will come across as a good Christian, unlike the black dude from Africa.
