    Shavit seems to accept as obvious the implication that Palestine could not become the home of the Jews unless Palestinians lost their homes in Palestine: “If Zionism was to be, Lydda could not be. If Lydda was to be, Zionism could not be.”

    But let's keep it pithy and simple. It makes it so much easier to be self righteous.

  2. It really does seem as if the world has gone mad. In addition to what Schieffer mentioned, we have the following in the summer of 2014:

    Serious Ebola outbreak.

    The horrific persecution of Christians in Syria and Iraq.

    The ongoing riots in Ferguson, Missouri.

  3. When America withdraws in the world, so does "civility". The Obama "vacuum" carries a price.

  4. Didn't Ari Shavit move to America, duck? The "reality" is that the Pseudostinians need to move. There will never be a Psuedostan.

  6. When, oh when, will the saintly black victim finally be delivered so that the braying mob can have the justice.that Our dear leader is calling for.
    They are the ones that riot, loot and destroy peoples property., and Obama wants Justice?

  7. What Sarah said is very true, If these idiots would wait a while until after the cop in question is charged they'd probably get their freaking justice. Instead, what do they do? They riot, they loot, they set fires and burn down their own neighborhoods and they destroy other peoples property, and that makes me think that's exactly what they wanted in the first place. Those people aren't interest in "Justice" what THEY want is FREE STUFF! And this is their chance to get it..

    Dumb is the key word here

  8. After watching the coverage of the Ferguson incident yesterday, on CNN they had alleged eyewitnesses to the events from the first shots on. Sitting beside what I assumed was her lawyer, a young woman described what she saw. I noticed that while her interpretation of what she saw is open to cross-examination (are you sure you saw what you saw?) what isn't in dispute is the subject who got shot was inside the officer's vehicle struggling with the officer. That would seem to corroborate the officer's description of being assaulted and the subject going for his weapon.

    The eye-witnesses' description confirms the officer and subject had some sort of physical altercation at the vehicle. What she goes on to describe is the actual shooting. But whether what she was seeing was a racist officer murdering a subject or responding to the subject's assault and grab for his weapon she couldn't know. Understandably the actual shooting will be most prominent in her recollection.

    I would have to believe the officer's account of what happened before I believe the accounts of what happened from an angry black mob.

  9. This surely isn't the first time that the World has gone mad but never, never, before has it had the massive destructive capability, of today!.

    Re. Ferguson : At least in the Rodney King incident the mayhem didn't start until 4 (LAPD) officers were acquitted. This one began before the alleged erring officer was even identified. Does that make these rioters PROACTIVE?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Rodney King? Don't remind me about that idiot. Can't we just get along?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Part of the reason the world has gone mad is that the media no longer consider it their job to expose the public to the truth.

  12. Our national government Holder/Obama currently represents "the angry black mob". If the residents of Ferguson have a problem with their police, they certainly have an authority to appeal to. Short of that, I hope their riots get crushed by the local gendarmes.

  15. “Above all, trust in the slow work of God. We are quite naturally impatient in everything to reach the end without delay. We would like to skip the intermediate stages. We are impatient of being on the way to something unknown, something new.

    And yet it is the law of all progress that it is made by passing through some stages of instability—and that it may take a very long time.

    And so I think it is with you; your ideas mature gradually—let them grow, let them shape themselves, without undue haste.

    Don’t try to force them on, as though you could be today what time (that is to say, Grace and Circumstances acting on your own good will) will make of you tomorrow.

    Only God could say what this new spirit gradually forming within you will be.

    Give Our Lord the benefit of believing that His hand is leading you, and accept the anxiety of feeling yourself in suspense and incomplete.”


    ~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

    Salvation is always ours to claim, even in the midst of a whirlwind, but we prefer to fret, stew, mourn, scorn and continue to attack one another.

    May the Lord bless you and keep you,
    May the Lord lift His countenance upon you,
    And give you peace, and be gracious unto you.


    Amen!

    And may the peace of God which passeth all understanding keep our hearts and minds through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. - Amen!

  16. I have not commented anywhere on the Ferguson situation, waiting for some truth and facts to come out. I saw where some are upset that police have armored vehicles. I say whatever the police need to keep the peace, to keep rioters from acting like animals gone wild.

    Not much is being said about the Niggers who are all over the news sucker punching people and holding up stores, attacking pregnant women, knocking out 72 year old men , and murdering Rabbi's. NOTHING!

    2. Are "knockout game" attacks occurring -- or not?

    4. The post from A p'o'd old white guy should be removed. It reflects very poorly on the conservative community if you let it remain.Such remarks are as imprudent as they are indecent.

      Usually I remove such comments. This time I did not. Only the one word in the comment is objectionable.

      Would the comment have been objectionable if the word "blacks" had been used?

      "Old white guys" are getting fed up -- and I can understand why.

      Delete
    6. No, not as objectionable but still racist. You just don't get it, do you?

    8. If indeed blacks are targeting whites for attacks based solely on skin color, that is racist.

      Now, whites have certainly wronged blacks over the course of history. But when blacks target whites today, doing so does not right the wrongs nor bring atonement, but rather put in motion something else just as hideous.

    9. AOW, I don't believe there is ever an excuse for that word, I don't care that you have commenters here who disparage good people for falling into political correctness for NOT using it. For most of us, it's hideous and should never be allowed. And you know I'm the least PC person you probably know. Sorry, but it really jarred me reading that comment.

      And there's Libmann showing his enormous intelligence thinking you'[re talking about HIM being a PISSED OFF WHITE GUY when it's the name of the guy who used "nigger". nothing changes, does it.

    10. Z,
      I, too, was jarred when I read that comment.

      However, I did let it stand. I have my reasons, one of the being that I have not been babysitting my blog the past several days.

      Delete
    11. Addendum,
      To clarify, Z, I'm not saying that there is a good excuse for using that word. That same standard should apply to Michael Brown as well. I think that some of his rap "music" used several words for which there really is no excuse.

      Delete
    12. Z,
      Here is Michael Brown's rap page. Yep, the objectionable word is there in the first audio -- toward the beginning of the track.

    14. Do the right thing, man. Delete the jerk's post. It sullies your entire blog. Stop being pig-headed and try to justify such filth like trying to compare it to a black rapper's use of the word.

      The fact of the matter is, If this had happened in a poor white neighborhood wingnuts would be screaming for them to take up arms and move to a compound.

      What's sad is that it totally escapes racists like P'Od Guy that local police forces are being militarized at an alarming rate and some view the citizenry they're supposed to 'protect and serve' as the enemy.

      Delete
    15. My blog, my decisions.

      If you think I'm going to delete the comment because you want me to do so, you don't have one operative brain cell.

      That said, you and I do agree on one thing: local police forces are being militarized at an alarming rate.

      Now, two questions:

      1. Who is funding this militarization of local police forces?

      2. When did this militarization of local police forces begin? Not the first time, but the continuum leading to now.

      Delete
  18. So...what else is new? I agree with his final statement and well said.

  24. Everything that the liberals think they know comes from their press... and if what actually happens gets reported, it's only because it directly happened TO their press. The newspaper is the liberal's Bible.

  27. The Durant quote is gold. We are soooo blessed in this country (or have been) that we have lost connection with the fragility of 'civilization.' So many lessons afoot in the world today to teach us otherwise.
