What Booman said

Yes, you heard me right, What Booman said. It seems that King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has warned that the West will be the next target of the jihadists sweeping through Syria and Iraq, unless there is "rapid" action.

Yes

Seriously

Because the entire House of Saud is a bunch of rotten cowards incapable of fighting their own wars. Read below the fold...

Democrats, warmongers with a human face

ELIZABETH WARREN FINALLY SPEAKS ON ISRAEL/GAZA, SOUNDS LIKE NETANYAHU

But Warren steadfastly defended her “pro-Israel” vote, invoking the politician’s platitude: “We’re going to have to agree to disagree on this one.” According to the account in the Cape Cod Times by reporter C. Ryan Barber, flagged by Zaid Jilani, Warren was also asked about her Israel position by other voters who were at the gathering, and she went on to explain:

The nicest thing I ever heard about Tim Kaine

The lobbying group AIPAC has consistently fought the Obama Administration on policy. Is it now losing influence?

At one point, Tim Kaine, a Democrat from Virginia, asked about conservative trends in Israel, a participant recalled. “He said that he supports Israel, but he’s concerned that Israel is headed toward a one-state solution—and that would be so damaging and dangerous for everyone involved.”

Dr. Frankenstein's foreign policy

It seems that we created ISIS. Why am I not surprised? Of course Obama is trapped. He can hardly call out Hillary saying, you know as well as I do that ISIS is our creation.

Evolving American-Israeli relations

I think that 1967 is the key year in US-Israel relations. If you were born before 1967 you see Israel as the plucky David rebuilding Jewish culture after the Holocaust. If you were born after 1967 you see Israel as mighty Sparta, small but formidable. After the six day war the two state solution became the obvious solution to all but ultra-Zionists. The ultra-Zionists have thus far prevailed. Read below the fold...

Solving your problem with violence is like solving your problem with alcohol, all you get is your problem plus violence

David Swanson has the best take yet on the current situation in Gaza. Since 1948 the Palestinians have chosen violence as a way to solve their problem and since 1948 their situation has gotten worse. Even if you could use the Geneva Convention and an occupied people's right to self defense as a way of rationalizing the use of rocket attacks, it is not working for the Palestinian people.

Israelis’ Hillside Viewing & Cheering of Gazan Bombing

Harriet Sherwood in “Israelis Gather on Hillsides to Watch and Cheer as Military Drops Bombs on Gaza” writes:

Israel Wages 'Slaughter War' Claiming Victimhood

In reading Dennis Bernstein’s “The Whys Behind Israel’s Gaza Slaughter” I noted his references to a “slaughter war” being waged by Israel on Gaza. In his article Vijay Prashad, professor of international studies at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut had this to say: Read below the fold...
