Don’t know much about history

Who’s the most pathetic when it comes to the history of Jewish Jerusalem? The Arabs and Persians who pretend Jews never had any claim to the city? Or Barry who is trying to push them into yet another land-for-peace deal with the untrustworthy Palestinians? Above, carved in marble in Rome, is the answer to both: the triumphal arch of Roman emperor Titus Flavius Vespasianus, celebrating the destruction of Jerusalem and the Second Temple by his armies in 67-70 C.E. Genocide was Rome’s response to the rebel Jews, just as it is today for the Muslims, and Barry’s whiny speeches can’t overcome the history he has either forgotten or never knew.

Celebrating 9/11 (really)

You can imagine the grins, the glee and the laughter. No, you really can’t. You have to see (and read) the Arab and Iranian reaction to 9/11, the convoluted conspiracy theories, and the denial, as compiled in a new documentary and transcript by the translators at MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute. You have to see it to believe it.
