Get the popcorn ready

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.’”

Lurch and his magic hat

Is there a bigger clown in Wormtongue’s administration than John Kerry? Slow Joe Biden, who couldn’t pass an entrance exam for first grade, is a genius compared to Lurch who recently dropped his diplomatic mask to blame the rise of ISIS on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The way some yo-yos  blame Israel for fomenting 9/11 and the jihadi conflict ever since

Which the White House later claimed our Lord Nelson of the River Boats ((He still has the hat!) never said despite multiple reports of it from various news sources. But they always do that, back and fill that is, deny the undeniable. Someone’s got to protect Lurch from himself. And, for a supposed diplomat, he is mighty thin-skinned.

Israel’s defense minister Moshe Yaalon mocked him as “obsessive and messianic.” (He still has the hat!) Yaalon’s remark was made in private but leaked to the Israeli press. Yaalon apologized. What did Lurch do? Like the rest of the Worm’s JV administration, he’s still holding a grudge

Yaalon’s “meeting with Chuck Hagel at the Pentagon last week was all smiles. Asked by the Washington Post’s Lally Weymouth about the Kerry kerfuffle, he replied, ‘We overcame that.’ Or not.

“’Despite the fact that Yaalon’s requests to meet with [Kerry and Biden] were declined over a week ago, Washington waited until the visit ended before making the story public in order to humiliate the Israeli defense minister,’ Ha’aretz reported. Mr. Yaalon is now said to be under an Obama administration ‘quarantine’ until he performs additional penance…”

As Brett Stephens adds, “The good news here is that at least there’s one kind of quarantine this administration believes in. The bad news is that it seems to give more thought to pursuing personal vendettas against allies like Israel than it does to waging effective military campaigns against enemies like ISIS.”

Shockeroo. Bibi, for one, has had enough. After temporarily calling a halt to such things to appease the White House’s attempt to get the Pallies to talk peace, Bibi recently announced the construction of 1,000 more apartments in Jerusalem, Israel’s capital city, the one the State Department and Lurch (he still has the hat!) refuse to recognize as such. The U.S. embassy is in Tel Aviv.

“The French build in Paris, the English build in London, and the Israelis build in Jerusalem. Why come and tell the Jews not to live in Jerusalem? Because it will heat up the atmosphere?” [Bibi] said in an address to parliament. “We are building like we’ve built since the establishment of the state.…Violence is not the result of building in Jerusalem.”

The building will be in the part of the holy city that Kerry (He’s still lying about the hat.)  persists in referring to as East Jerusalem, as if the Jordanians were still occupying it. Which they did, in addition to the Old City, until 1967 when that little Arab misadventure referred to as the Six Day War went down. 1967 just happens to be the year and the borders the Worm wants Israel to return to “with swaps” to make the Pallies sign a peace treaty. They claim “East Jerusalem” as part of their future “state.” Dream on.

So Kerry reacted. He called Bibi. So far Bibi isn’t backing down and the State Department hasn’t released anything about what Lurch told him. Instead, the White House sent out a surrogate to slur Bibi as a “chickenshit.” And then denied doing it. Reminiscent of the way the adolescent Worm plays a middle-schooler in surreptitiously giving political opponents the finger and then denying he did it to the very few journos bold enough to ask.

Maybe Lurch told Bibi about his lucky hat. Nah. The State Department would have officially announced that one for sure.

UPDATE: Heh. Guess who got tasked with an additional denial?  Lurch is shocked, shocked, that any chickenshit in the administration would call Bibi names.

Bibi: Hamas engages in “child sacrifice”

“Israel’s battle with Hamas in Gaza is a test for the civilized world whether it will grant immunity to terrorists because they attack from schools, homes and hospitals, [Israel] Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Wednesday night.

“Netanyahu, speaking at a press conference for foreign journalists to combat criticism of Israel over the civilian deaths in Gaza, said that by waging its war from the heart of civilian areas, Hamas was ‘engaging in child sacrifice, and that is something for which it must be held accountable.’”

An interesting modern comparison, considering that archaeologists have found that child sacrifice was a very common religious practice in the region thousands of years ago. And even before the recent unpleasantness, Hamas sacrificed at least 160 children to build its tunnels.

Not that we should expect the anti-Israel hypocrites of the world news media to emphasize either case.

Israel is an American value

I think that’s absolutely true and it explains why Obamalot’s attempt to sandbag Bibi before he arrived to speak to Congress blew up in their face. Not only did they spend the next few days backing and filling to explain what their leader really meant, the Congress, itself, rebuked them with all those standing ovations for Bibi, who likewise eviscerated Obamalot.

Says Walter Russell Mead: “Obama’s political isolation on this issue, and the haste with which liberal Democrats like Nancy Pelosi left the embattled President to take the heat alone, testify to the pervasive sense in American politics that Israel is an American value.  Said the Minority Leader to the Prime Minister: ‘I think it’s clear that both sides of the Capitol believe you advance the cause of peace.’”

Next up, from the so-called Palestinian Arabs, a new intifada. To be answered, undoubtedly, with air strikes and artillery.

Read it all.

UPDATE: New CAMERA Poll finds “The overwhelming majority of American Jews are cognizant of threats to Israel, protective of the country, cautious about risks and strongly opposed to such measures as boycotts, including boycotts of settlements.”

Bibi to Obamalot: Return to 1845 borders

“Netanyahu spoke of the injustice and hardship Mexicans have endured since American forces annexed Texas in 1845.

“‘Tens of thousands of ordinary Mexicans were driven out of their homes – the only homes they had known for centuries – and forced to live in poverty and squalor south of the border imposed by American aggression,’ Netanyahu said. ‘The Israeli and Mexican people agree on this: This festering wound will never heal until America takes bold steps to return to the internationally accepted lines of 1845.'”

Nice joke. Hits the spot. I certainly wouldn’t miss California.
