They’re spreading like crawfish!… Scared Silly! Its a classic Hollywood Middle Eastern horror comedy. Putin arrives in Israel to a 21-missile Hamas Gaza salute. As a hockey player, Putin is a somewhat pampered “star” , a squirty but stocky forward who has made his short career reputation by hovering around the red line waiting for a breakaway pass from one of his more talented teammates. Dangerous from the red line in, but not much of a back checker or fulfiller of defensive responsibilities. All score no pass. But on his trip to Israel and the Palestinian Authority, Putin took a few sticks to the head, elbows to the chinny chin chin, and a man disadvantage on the power play that led him to the Western Wall, the wall of lamentations at 2 a.m. to try to understand what it is all about.Maybe the room service was really bad….
Abbas said the diplomatic deadlock between Israel and the PA is due to continued construction in Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria and called for “a freeze on Jewish construction in the territories which is spreading like crawfish.”…. Abbas seemed to be in fine jabbing and sparring form; metaphorically referring to jews as breeding like crayfish in a battle of the womb; are crayfish kosher? and naming a street in Bethlehem after Putin which in local tradition is only done after the honoree has been dead through natural or causes that disrupt the normal course of narrative, once could say it was a sort of “fatwa light.” Maybe its just Abbas flexing a little Dada, a little shock of the new….
…Russian President Vladimir Putin had to swallow hard Tuesday when Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas surprised him by naming a road in Bethlehem in honor of his guest. In Europe, as in Israel, the honor is reserved for those who are dead.
Putin, speaking in Jordan after his visits to the Palestinian Authority and Israel, admitted he was “at a bit of a loss” when Abbas named the Bethlehem street after him. “I would like to live a bit longer,” Putin laughed, half seriously. ” Read More:http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/157268#.T-r7k_Vb76Ma
Then this massive Red Army monument in Netanya, the Victory Monument as it is called, constructed on prime beachfront property, without a budget being passed nor public debate, whipped into form in short order. Who owns the land it sits on? By recalling the Communist past, it is also a subtle smack at the growing religious community who bore the brunt of the goodwill-hunting comrade in arms Red Army of Trotsky and Stalin versions. But, like anything in the Middle East, all aesthetic preconceptions have to regarded as only illusory, or at best only uneasy subversions of logic…
(see link at end)…This makes it easier for the White Man to identify with them. And there is this element that is never mentioned about Palestinian attacks: and this is true of the present and of the past. It is not that some Palestinian leaders recruit or compel Palestinians to attack Israelis. It is the other way round. Palestinians, regular rank-and-file pressure Palestinian leaders and commanders to send them on military or suicidal missions against Israeli targets. Munich occurred exactly like that. Palestinians in the refugee camps in Lebanon, those who were trained by Fatah and by other groups, were lobbying for “action.” Why? In February of the same year prior to Munich, Israeli jets bombed Palestinian refugee camps, and killed innocent people. This is what is missing in the movie. Most Palestinians who are killed by Israelis are unarmed and are killed not by conscientious and sensitive Israeli assassins-as they are outrageously portrayed in this movie-but by Israeli pilots who bomb refugee camps filled with unarmed civilians. Palestinians who are bombed from the air, long before Munich, are elderly and women andldren in their beds. These are the victims that you will never see in a Spielberg movie.
Israel was killing Palestinians, and this was the context of pre-Munich. A small Palestinian group chose to seek venegeance–retaliation– but they were not sure of their target, and this was only three months before Munich. One of the handful of people who knew about this was Abu Mazen, the Abu Mazen who today is the head of the puppet Palestinian Authority. But do you notice that US/Israel always forgive the past of those who submit to Israeli dictates? Look at how US and Israel forgave Anwar Sadat for his Nazi past. Abu Mazen was the money guy, and he dispersed the funds for Abu Dawud, who engineered the operation. Read More:http://www.revisionisthistory.org/steinsaltz.html
