Hundreds of rabbis, including the chief rabbis of Israel, have signed a letter to President Trump declaring him blessed for recognizing Israeli sovereignty.
“The presidents of the United States have had the merit of standing at Israel’s side, of partnering in the realization of the prophetic vision of the return to Zion and the rebirth of Israel. A rare privilege has now presented itself to you: To be the first American president to blaze the trail for recognition of Israel’s sovereignty over Jerusalem, the Golan Heights, and now, over the recognition of Israel’s sovereignty over the Jewish communities of Judea and Samaria.”
Trump, they said, will be remembered in Jewish history as a “man who stood on the front-lines, unafraid.”

I had to do this morning what I try to avoid: go to the post office. Long lines, irritable employees. But I had to pick up a new mezuzah Mr. Goon was kind enough to send to replace our stolen one. His was small enough that it could have fit in my mailbox but the postman held it back for pickup anyway at the P.O. which is miles away from the mini-rancho.
Not that I’m paranoid or anything but ISRAEL in big bold letters on the front of the mailer makes some people peevish these days. The clerk at the P.O. certainly was. Short-tempered when I had a momentary lapse in thinking (common to we seventy-five-year-olds) while trying to decipher their credit card machine to buy some stamps. While I was there, you know. Figures a fed machine would be different from all commercial ones I have seen.
But the postal fellow? He was black, middle-aged and irritable, especially after he retrieved the package (from ISRAEL) for me. Looked downright angry. Some people forget, if they ever knew, how hard the Jews worked to get African Americans their civil rights. Some even died for it.
“#Israel bans two BDSholes and suddenly everyone on the left cares about free speech. We didn’t hear a murmur out of any of these hypocrites when two Americans, Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller, were banned from the UK. They’re still banned. Where are the protests about that?”
Never known for either good writing (that was the old UPI) or accurate reporting, the old Associated Press at least strove for objectivity. Not any more.
“The Left’s favorite game these days is exposing or “doxxing” supporters of conservative (or, some would say, common sense) causes. Why? So that fellow leftists can harass them or boycott their businesses. We have seen multiple instances in just the last few days. This one is striking because it comes from the Associated Press, which was once a respected news source.”
They are now as partisan as the rest of the Mediacrats: doxxing supporters of Israel.

Ilhan Omer (actually Elmi) is flying to Ramallah in early August, via Ben Gurion whence she may (just may) have to sit on the ground until takeoff again because she’s denied entry. Needs a waiver on Israel’s anti-BDS law from Bibi. Of course she knows all this. Why do you think she’s going?
Rich with entertainment possibilities, even if Bibi doesn’t bite, as she pins the radical tail on the Donkey. Go for the buttered popcorn.
UPDATE: They’re letting her in out of “respect for the Congress.” Oh.
MORE: No, they’re not. Israel blocked her and her Rep pal Tlaib from entering because of their BDS activism and Israel’s anti-BDS law. Just what they wanted, probably. A nice, nasty controversy. “Also noteworthy is the fact that the sponsors of Reps Omar and Tlaib’s trip was an organization called Miftah, that has claimed that ‘Jews use the blood of Christians in Jewish Passover.’”
