Ruthie Blum's latest article in Israel Hayom gets to the point of the issue. Suddenly Hillary, of all people, has appointed Egypt's Morsi as our judge, jury and executioner.
Then it was Clinton’s turn. “…The people of this region deserve the chance to live free from fear and violence, and today’s agreement is a step in the right direction that we should build on,” she said. “Now we have to focus on reaching a durable outcome that promotes regional stability and advances the security, dignity, and legitimate aspirations of Palestinians and Israelis alike. [Egyptian] President [Mohammed] Morsi and I discussed how the United States and Egypt can work together to support the next steps in that process. ... Ultimately, every step must move us toward a comprehensive peace for all the people of the region.”
And Caroline Glick isn't shy about reminding us of the series of bad calls we suffer from.
The cease-fire agreement that Israel accepted Wednesday night to end the current round of Palestinian rocket and missile attacks is not a good deal for Israel by any stretch of the imagination.At best, Israel and Hamas are placed on the same moral plane. The cease-fire erases the distinction between Israel, a peace-seeking liberal democracy that wants simply to defend its citizens, and Hamas, a genocidal jihadist terrorist outfit that seeks the eradication of the Jewish people and the destruction of Israel....Then there is the cease-fire's elevation of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood government to the role of responsible adult. Hamas is the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. Egyptian President Muhamad Morsi openly supports Hamas. Morsi sent his Prime Minister Hesham Kandil to Gaza to personally express the Egyptian government's support for Hamas's criminal assault against Israeli civilians.
There's nothing like Latma to show us the Right way of looking at the news.
Here's Caroline Glick's explanation of this week's program:
This week's Tribal Update the weekly satirical newscast produced by Latma, the Hebrew-language satirical media criticism website I run was written and filmed before the wonderful ceasefire Wednesday night. But it is still relevant and hilarious now. We bring you Max Damage from the BBC explaining the BBC's definition of Israel's right to defend itself. We bring you our favorite Palestinian terrorists Jamil and Awad who present Hamas's most updated demands on Israel. And we bring you Israel's defensive system developer who presents a whole new line of brilliant defense systems that promise to give Israel maximum protection without causing any inconvenience whatsoever to the Palestinians!
