Come meet the Elders.
Simply Jews - a cabal of critically undermedicated schemers.
That one, I mean:
The international community can say whatever they want, and we can do whatever we want.
He is only rephrasing Ben Gurion's famous dismissal of the international community: "Um Shmum... What matters is not what the Gentiles will say, but what the Jews will do." His stupidity lies in his artlessness. In this his stupidity is not at all unlike the stupidity of Samantha Power who publicly mused about American forces invading Israel in order to protect the Palestinians from genocide.
Hm. Dunno. I am not too keen on psychiatry, so I wouldn't argue about where his stupidity lies. Could be you are right. As for Samantha P. - I know too little about the lady.
Stupidity is not a psychiatric or even psychological matter.Samantha Power is the mother of Cass Sunstein's first born son, a scion to the Gaon of Vilnius, no less. Just an interesting tidbit about the lady who was appointed by Obama to success (and possibly outdo) Susan Rice and who is on record prescribing investing in Palestinians and a full American force to protect them and divesting from Israel. She is fearful of genocides, you see.
I agree, only hoping that psychiatry could contribute some pills that will calm down this doofus.As for Samantha P. - thanks for the info, I am really ignorant of the lady. And of course she is fearful, after all Genocide is our middle name...
What do you expect from a politician? Treat him as you would any other politician and keep him away from the press.
Sadly, I am beginning to wonder whether these days Israel can do ANYTHING. You sure have all interests (and levels of intelligence) represented in the government, but is that really the best way?
She's another fanatic Lefty who will very likely self-destruct within a year at most. Like Danon she cannot resist shooting off her mouth, though in his case I sort of like his candor. Of course the Israeli government will never recognize a Palestinian state, particularly not a contiguous one. Its ministers are just not supposed to say so out loud. Hurts the peace process, the endless fandango we're all supposed to take seriously.
If only I could treat all politicians... believe me, they will never leave their kennels alive.
Yes, a monarchy for some 100 years or so seems to be a better choice, but where would we scare up a suitable king?
Well, a good muzzle would be a good treatment for the candor of that kind.
Doesn't have to be a monarchy, but let's say you have 30 guys in the government... Do they really have to have 30 different views on every issue?
That us precisely what monarchy is meant to avoid.
Guess I am thinking 1967. Or Osirak. Israel didn't have monarchy then. Doubt today's government would have had the balls for either.
Sure, the PMs in both these situations were much more authoritarian, and the governments much more "disciplined" and loyal
Out of the mouths of babes and fools comes the truth since they are often the only ones without the hypocracy to express the truth. (Think we can all guess which one Danon is.) Maybe I am being overly nostaligic, but I do recalled the day when Israel, at least so far as diplomacy and defense was concerned, had competent leaders. Unfortunately Danon is right, no one expects any negotiations with the Palestinians to go any place. For reasons of their own internal politics, neither the current Israeli govt or the PLO are likely to agree on anything significant. As for building in East Jerusalem or anyplace else, Damon is right that the UN and more importantly the US is unlikely to do anything other than utter some meaninglessness token condenmenation.
Snoopy, as I recall from the Bible, ancient Kings of Israel, outside of David and his son Solomen were not on the whole, very good ones. Remember what Churchill said about democracy: "The worst form of govt. ever invented, other than every other form of govt."!
There were plenty of foreign policy experts who, after 9/11, said that we would really have to crack down on Israel in order to obtain the support of the Muslim world for out war against Al Qaida and its allies. Harold Coyle even wrote a novel about the federalized Virginia National Guard being deployed on Israel's border with a new Palestinian state in order to keep the peace. Link to it at http://www.amazon.com/They-Are-Soldiers-Harold-Coyle/dp/0765344602/ref=pd_sim_b_7
But you see, David, Dannon is not talking about negotiations per se, but about his response to possible (oh, well...) result. Otherwise you are right. Difficult to imagine any of the sides bulging at the moment.
That was exactly my big question: where do we get a successful one? Maybe we should borrow one from another nation, like Russians did once ;-)
Virginia National Guard? Hm... sounds interesting. But who will guard Virginia then? These New Carolina characters are watching, you know...
