Assorted Middle-East-related shit

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced today that Israel is perfectly fine with a Palestinian state — as long as the Palestinians have no military (and make other major concessions to Israel).

That’s like telling your neighbors with whom you long have been feuding that you get to keep your fucking home arsenal but that your neighbors may not possess a single firearm.

The persnickety Palestinians for some reason are rejecting Israel’s generous offer of unilateral disarmament.

Those Palestinian ingrates!

I’m thinking that we can get some good of this, however, a new word: Whenever someone wants to bend you over and fuck you in the ass but acts like he’s giving you a screamin’ deal, you can call him a “Netanyahu.”

The caption for this Associated Press photo reads: “An Ultra-Orthodox Jewish man walks past posters, hung by an extremist right-wing group, depicting U.S. President Barack Obama wearing a traditional Arab headdress, in Jerusalem, Sunday, June 14, 2009.”

Israel remains the No. 1 recipient of U.S. foreign aid — billions of our tax dollars — yet Zionists call President Obama (whose first name they might want to learn how to spell) an “Anti-Semitic Jew-hater” (that’s straight from the Office of Redundancy Office).

Gee, Israel’s wingnuts seem to be about as good with the English language as are the United States’ wingnuts…

Anyway, how about we yank the billions of our tax dollars that we give to Israel and use them here at home, where we could sorely use them? Then at least Obama could have earned the title of “Anti-Semitic Jew-hater.”

Speaking of Zionist wingnuts, Connecticut Sen. Joseph Benedict Arnold Lieberman, whose No. 1 constituent always has been Israel, had this to say about Iran’s presidential election fracas (from Politico):

“[T]hrough intimidation, violence, manipulation, and outright fraud, the Iranian regime has once again made a mockery of democracy, and confirmed its repressive and dictatorial character…. I would hope that President Obama and members of both parties in Congress will speak out, loudly and clearly, about what is happening in Iran right now, and unambiguously express their solidarity with the brave Iranians who went to the polls in the hope of change, and who are now looking to the outside world for strength and support.”

Gee, had Lieberman only been a fraction as outraged over stolen presidential elections when he was Democrat Al Gore’s running mate in 2000… But this is Israel we’re talking about, and Lieberman and his Zionist ilk always put Israel first.

Lieberman, who defected from the Democratic Party when Connecticut voters selected someone else over him in the Democratic primary, might want to start his own party, the American Zionist Party.

Not that I’m for stolen presidential elections anywhere, including Iran, but clearly Lieberman’s concern is for his Zionist paymasters, not for the people of Iran.

It seems to me that Iran, being a rather totalitarian theocracy, is one tough nut to crack. How to bring true democracy to Iran without a fuck of a lot of bloodshed I have no idea. One thing I do know is that you don’t bomb a nation into democracy, a la the Vietraq War; democracy has to develop from within, not from without.

In any case, I’m happy to see support for fair elections in Iran throughout the world, including here in the United States. These news photos were taken today in Los Angeles:

I’m lovin’ the green theme and still wondering if any connection to the international Green Party was intended. I think that we’re long overdue for a progressive international party, since national parties aren’t cutting it.
