His smoldering anger summarize the story of a “special relationship” from hell. .. Since Bibi came to power, the Israelis have killed more Palestinians The game that changes isn't that Iran blows up Israel, the game that. Netanyahu speech scandal blows up, and 'soiled' Dermer looks like the fall guy So these media are acting to protect the special relationship by upping the So some in Congress are taking action to stop Bibi's speech.
And all of sudden, the Boehner-Bibi ploy has provided them an opportunity to express those resentments, even if only in a veiled and subtle way. Start with the administration itself. His administration has given Israel unprecedented levels of military, diplomatic, and intelligence support. He and his aides and especially Kerry have devoted endless hours trying to advance the cause of peace. And what do they get for their pains?
The prime minister of a small country that is heavily dependent on U. But the problem goes deeper. The question, therefore, is whether this flap will turn out to be an isolated incident or whether more people will begin to say what they really think.
First, by making unconditional support for Israel a prerequisite for political success in Washington, they have helped create some of the resentment that is now beginning to move out into the open. Second and equally importantly, by constantly pressing the U. Those reps and senators know they risk their own re-election if they stand for ovations.
Kathleen January 30, One, Israel is not an ally of the US. There is not, and cannot be treaty of alliance as Israel does not have even the basics of defined borders. Until that happens, an ally status is not shared. Two, countriesnations, do not have friends, but only interests.
Friendships are the stuff of human emotions only. Has it ever fought with us or prevented attacks on any of us? Does it contribute to our war effort against those who do attack us? Does it share our values of equality regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation or ethnicity? Pretending to share our values while actively enacting and enforcing laws contrary to those values places you outside the pale.
Israel is no worse than countries such as Saudi Arabia. Pretending Israel is any better than countries such as SA is delusional. And even western nations fall short of our ideals. No question about that. At least we try instead of just trying to pretend. Abe Foxman is not hard-right, and you know that. As quoted in The Jerusalem Post.
To say that Iran doesn't practice terrorism is like saying Derek Jeter never played shortstop for the New York Yankees. There is no room for racism and discrimination in our society, none We will turn racism into something contemptible and despicable. Amos Regev, the editor-[in-chief] of Israel HaYomis a personal friend and my conversations with him are not within the framework of my job.
Response to an FOI request by Haaretz on ties between Netanyahu and the management of Israel's largest newspaper 11 June  Hitler didn't want to exterminate the Jews at the time. He wanted to expel the Jews. Netanyahu tells World Zionist Congress that Hitler only wanted to expel the Jews, but Jerusalem's Grand Mufti convinced him to exterminate them, a claim that was rejected by most accepted Holocaust scholars.
The labeling of products of the Jewish state by the European Union brings back dark memories. Europe should be ashamed of itself. It took an immoral decision. Of the hundreds of territorial conflicts around the world, it chose to single out Israel and Israel alone, while it's fighting with its back against the wall against the wave of terror.
As quoted in "EU: The people of Iran are very talented people. They're heirs to one of the world's great civilizations. But inthey were hijacked by religious zealots; religious zealots who imposed on them immediately a dark and brutal dictatorship.
Bibi Blows Up the Special Relationship
That year, the zealots drafted a constitution, a new one for Iran. It directed the revolutionary guards not only to protect Iran's borders, but also to fulfill the ideological mission of jihad. The regime's founder, Ayatollah Khomeini, exhorted his followers to "export the revolution throughout the world.
America's founding document promises life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Iran's founding document pledges death, tyranny, and the pursuit of jihad. And as states are collapsing across the Middle East, Iran is charging into the void to do just that.
Iran took dozens of Americans hostage in Tehran, murdered hundreds of American soldiers, Marines, in Beirut, and was responsible for killing and maiming thousands of American service men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan. Beyond the Middle East, Iran attacks America and its allies through its global terror network.
It blew up the Jewish community center and the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires. It helped al-Qaeda bomb U. It even attempted to assassinate the Saudi ambassador, right here in Washington, D. And if Iran's aggression is left unchecked, more will surely follow. So, at a time when many hope that Iran will join the community of nations, Iran is busy gobbling up the nations. We must all stand together to stop Iran's march of conquest, subjugation and terror. The difference is that ISIS is armed with butcher knives, captured weapons and YouTube, whereas Iran could soon be armed with intercontinental ballistic missiles and nuclear bombs.
We must always remember. I'll say it one more time; the greatest dangers facing our world is the marriage of militant Islam with nuclear weapons. We can't let that happen. If Iran's work on advanced centrifuges, faster and faster centrifuges, is not stopped, that break-out time could still be shorter, a lot shorter. True, certain restrictions would be imposed on Iran's nuclear program and Iran's adherence to those restrictions would be supervised by international inspectors.
But here's the problem. You see, inspectors document violations; they don't stop them. Inspectors knew when North Korea broke to the bomb, but that didn't stop anything. North Korea turned off the cameras, kicked out the inspectors.

Within a few years, it got the bomb. Now, we're warned that within five years North Korea could have an arsenal of nuclear bombs. Like North Korea, Iran, too, has defied international inspectors. It's done that on at least three separate occasions;, Like North Korea, Iran broke the locks, shut off the cameras.
I wish I could promise you, Elie, that the lessons of history have been learned. I can only urge the leaders of the world not to repeat the mistakes of the past. Not to sacrifice the future for the present; not to ignore aggression in the hopes of gaining an illusory peace. But I can guarantee you this, the days when the Jewish people remained passive in the face of genocidal enemies, those days are over! We are no longer scattered among the nations, powerless to defend ourselves.
We restored our sovereignty in our ancient home. And the soldiers who defend our home have boundless courage. For the first time in generations, we, the Jewish people, can defend ourselves. This is why; this is why, as a prime minister of Israel, I can promise you one more thing: Even if Israel has to stand alone, Israel will stand.
But I know that Israel does not stand alone. I know that America stands with Israel. You stand with Israel, because you know that the story of Israel is not only the story of the Jewish people but of the human spirit that refuses again and again to succumb to history's horrors.
Facing me right up there in the gallery, overlooking all of us in this august chamber is the image of Moses. Moses led our people from slavery to the gates of the Promised Land. And before the people of Israel entered the land of Israel, Moses gave us a message that has steeled our resolve for thousands of years.
Israel cares more about Palestinians than their own leaders do. Innocent and impoverished Palestinians were denied vital aid supplied from nations around the world, Hamas stole critical support for Palestinian children so that they could kill our children…I express my deepest sympathy with innocent Palestinians and those well-meaning nations who generously donated money to help them.
But the majority have rights too, and the majority rulesthe vast majority of people want to preserve the Jewish character of our country for generations to come, this combination of individual rights and group rights are the definition of a Jewish and democratic state.
Israel is the nation state of the Jewish people, which honors the individual rights of all its citizens, I repeat this is our state. Lately, there are people who are trying to destabilize this and therefore destabilize the foundations of our existence and our rights, so today we have made a law in stone. This is our country.
This is our language. This is our anthem and this is our flag. Long live the state of Israel. About the Basic Law: The occupation and expansion … building of settlementsof occupied territory, this is according to the Rome Statute, which is… the setup… the statute on which the international criminal court is based, in so many words, a war crime. So why should we receive someone who continues with such things, we could have sent him right away to the international criminal court, that would have been better Dries van Agtduring a television interview.
Who's the fucking superpower here?
