Pre-Election Political Shenanigans

I was going to call this "Pre-Election Political Maneuverings," but that would put everything on a higher level.

Along with a large percentage of Israelis, I'm disgusted by our Prime Minister's fake "war" to stop the terror from Gaza which had burnt up a large portion of southern Israel and made life total Hell for Israeli citizens living there.

  • Instead of really fighting the terrorists to destroy them, Netanyahu went back to the farcical warnings to empty buildings technique. Nobody was fooled, not the terrorists and not any Israelis. What did we accomplish by bombing a few empty buildings? To be honest, absolutely nothing.
  • Since we're months, barely a year, before scheduled elections, and elections could be called at any time,  Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman surprised nobody by resigning. That's so he can campaign from the Right of Bibi's Likud. 
  • That left Bibi with the narrowest of coalitions, so of course Bennett and Kahlon are now competing for the Defense Ministry and threatening to topple the government.
  • Deja vu, elections will no doubt be soon
Let's see who's really the best chess player.

Instead of blaming Israel’s Prime Minister,
blame the international news media that
misrepresents Muslim terrorists as victims,
and also misrepresents Jews defending
themselves as aggressors.

=============================================
Islamic law is the law of the land in
Saudi Arabia, and religious officials
have tremendous sway over daily life.

Textbooks in Saudi schools denigrate
nonbelievers and the West and extol martyrdom.

For example, Time magazine reported that
“an 8th grade book states that Allah cursed Jews
and Christians and turned some of them into apes
and pigs.

Ninth-graders learn that Judgment Day will not come
“until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them.”

A chapter for a 10th-grade class warns Muslims
against befriending non- Muslims saying,
“It is compulsory for Muslims to be loyal to
each other and consider the infidels their enemy.”

=============================================
“Because their legitimacy is linked to their
image as champions of Islam, Saudi leaders
step gingerly in the world of Islamist politics
and have been hesitant to oppose jihadist causes.”

=============================================
“Nor has Saudi Arabia tackled the knotty issue
of fire-breathing preachers and institutions
that spread intolerance or aggressively
tried to hinder jihadists who do not
directly threaten the Kingdom.”

=============================================
“The United States has poured billions of
dollars into Pakistan’s counterterrorism efforts…

Much of the money went to buy conventional
military equipment for the constant struggle
with India, and thus did little to help
Pakistan to fight Al Qaeda or other jihadists.

Corrupt officials siphoned off much of the aid,
and the money did not significantly improve
Pakistan’s ability to fight terrorism.”

PERSONAL COMMENT:

Expecting Pakistan to fight against Islamic
terrorism is like expecting the KKK to fight
for the civil rights of African-Americans.

Expecting Pakistan to fight against Islamic
terrorism is like expecting neo-Nazis
to fight for the civil rights of Jews.

I disagree.

Mr. Cohen said...

If Israel cannot crack-down in Gaza,
even when Donald Trump is USA president,
then when?

We don't need anyone's permission. By wanting approval we lose.
