Tibbi’s Roundup: If You Knew What’s Going On in my Head You’d Blush


A bunch of Hollywood starts visited an IAF base this week. I recognize the guy from House and the guy from the old ER right behind him. Anyone else?

Obama to Address Gay Marriage Stance You know what’s hilarious? Peggy’s Mom is religious and old fashioned and believes that her daughter moving in with a man without marrying him is immoral and unnatural. We the audience know that eventually Peggy’s Mom and Her Kind will die and the idea of a young couple moving in together before getting married will become normal. We can also safely assume that this same phenomenon will occur in our generation as well. The people today who oppose gay marriage are going to die. They will be replaced by more open minded little Peggys and Abes and today’s thorny issue will become tomorrow’s norm. I think this is called progress. DovBear

ZIONISTS IN AMERICA AND THE CENTER OF THE WORLD

Alex Joffe takes us on a very learned tour of centuries past in search of I’m not so sure what. It’s a good read, well cited and factually correct. I believe the author’s intent can be summed in one paragraph near the end, which I bring here. Otherwise, it’s possible today is not one of my most patient times.

The Case of American Religious Zionism American Jews are now undergoing one of their periodic paroxysms over Zionism.  Liberal Jews are as unnerved by strong expressions of religious belief as they are by unapologetic nationalism.  Compounding matters are bad neighbors and perfectionist aspirations.  Secular American Zionism seems to have foundered on its own contradictory expectations and now contributes few to aliyah; religious Zionism thrives but is used for explicitly or implicitly illiberal ends. Alex Joffe, Jewish Ideas Daily

Anat Biletzki is professor of philosophy at Tel Aviv University and Albert Schweitzer Professor of Philosophy at Quinnipiac University. She has served as chairperson of B’Tselem. Now you can read:

Why I Am Not a Liberal Zionist: A response to the Huffington Post’s ‘Liberal Zionists Speak Out’ Within the hour phone calls started streaming in — to the TV station, to my home and to my mother, who is of that unique generation, the Palmach generation, credited with bringing the Jewish State into existence. The consensual attack was based on stupefaction: How could I deny Zionism? Anat Biletzki, MondoWeiss

COMIC RELIEF, NOT A MINUTE TOO SOON

Seriously, just good, well written comedy. That it also touches on the gay-liberal thing is merely a bonus. Or maybe everything in America is either gay or liberal or both or hates both. You be the judge, jury and executioner…

How do you play Jewish Geography?
If I don’t want the conversation to end before it has even begun I have to make it a two part answer. First I have to say that I live in San Francisco, I also have to make sure to mention that it’s a black hole of Judaism and take some crack at the Gays or Liberals (better if you do both at once) and then I have to say that I’m originally from New York. Of course this makes the entire conversation that much more complicated. You see, Jewish Geography is a necessary evil of the frum community and for some people it just leads to a whole mess of things.

The average Israeli is remarkably stupid and thick-headed when it comes to the sanctity of freedom of speech.

It's business as usual as Gazans repair the tunnels used to smuggle in the long-range rockets that hit Tel Aviv.

Some of these Gazan tunnels were estimated to have cost $3 million to construct, but will they sustain continued flooding by rain and sewer water?

Mayor Shimoni was looking to provide security, albeit in an unpopular way, because his prime minister has not been able to. Calling him names does not change the fact that Israeli civilians are not safe from being murdered in the street by blood-crazy Arab individuals.

If anyone has had any delusions about this not being a religious war, and anything but a religious war, one need only connect the images that are emerging from this morning’s massacre of four Jewish men in the middle of their morning prayer to the images of Jews massacred in Hebron, in 1929.
