  1. Richard a one state solution with equal rights for all people would be incredible; a miracle.

    Unfortunately, I don’t think this will ever happen. Racism and discrimination of Muslims is the one prejudice that is not only acceptable but its encouraged in the west. I hope I’m wrong.

      1. The mystery of all mysteries, what will be the outcome of the Israeli versus Palestinian tug of war. All the power to impose their preferred outcome belongs to Israel; all the humanity to resist that outcome belongs to the Palestinians.

        So what will it be? A single Jewish state with an underclass of ‘Arab citizens’, who actually aren’t accorded citizenship rights (if they are not expelled), and a whittling away of the Palestinians’ land, resources, and their way of life until their is nothing left for their way-of-life? Maybe a reservation will be set aside, as an act of supposed generosity, for a Palestinian homeland on a particularly worthless strip of land (on which Israel will retain resource extraction rights)?

        Will there be enough domestic and international revulsion that catches up and poses a serious economic threat by BDS or a return to militancy that ultimately leads to a ME meltdown?

        It really is too bad there aren’t more sensible people inside Israel and the US who understand that the only viable, sustainable solution that allows for peace and prosperity is the ‘cake-and-eat-it’ solution of a single democratic state with full citizenship rights for all Palestinians and Israelis, where all religions and cultures have the freedom to flourish.

  2. Somebody should ask about the destruction of the Jews preceding the Second Coming? When will it be? By what means, etc.?

    It is outrageous that this national party has undone, as you rightly note, all of American policy over the decades. Undone, willy-nilly. Poof!

    Obama is starting to look better and better (at closing time!). Indeed, Arthur Adler suggests assassination in the Atlanta Jewish Times, which is further endorsement.

  3. I think this is more proof that the GOP leadership is imploding because it is a vacuum. They have no ideas on the domestic front except for tax cuts, no foreign policy objectives beyond George W. Bush’s. Within the next five years we may see the GOP vanish into history, if they don’t watch it.

  4. Richard, the statement “blond-haired white Christian Republican lady” seems gratuitous. What do you mean by this?

    1. To be “gratuitous” the observation should be somewhat pejorative. Hillary Clinton fits 5 of those 6 words.

      It also seems that the resolution could not be written by Jews. It reminds me of Santorum who was invited to West Bank, presumably guided and offered copious explanations of settlers’ position and came up with “all people in West Banks are Israelis”. Jews who use words “West Bank” acknowledge that Palestinians exist. Jews who do not do not use that phrase.

  5. George Washington once said
    “…a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils. Sympathy for the favorite nation, facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists, and infusing into one the enmities of the other, betrays the former into a participation in the quarrels and wars of the latter without adequate inducement or justification. It leads also to concessions to the favorite nation of privileges denied to others which is apt doubly to injure the nation making the concessions; by unnecessarily parting with what ought to have been retained, and by exciting jealousy, ill-will, and a disposition to retaliate, in the parties from whom equal privileges are withheld. And it gives to ambitious, corrupted, or deluded citizens (who devote themselves to the favorite nation), facility to betray or sacrifice the interests of their own country, without odium, sometimes even with popularity; gilding, with the appearances of a virtuous sense of obligation, a commendable deference for public opinion, or a laudable zeal for public good, the base or foolish compliances of ambition, corruption, or infatuation. “
