Bibi’s Bomb Stole The Show

Troodler-101212

The use of visual aids is not new to the UN. In 1962, during the Cuban missile crisis, Adlai Stevenson, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, publicly displayed for the first time aerial photographs of Soviet missiles in Cuba. In 2003, Secretary of State Colin Powell presented satellite images and a vial containing white powder intended to look like anthrax in order to make his point that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction. In 2009, then-Libyan leader Muammar Khaddafi held a copy of the UN Charter aloft, tore it up, and dramatically tossed it aside during his UN address.

Over the years, Netanyahu has shown a propensity for utilizing visual aids. For example, in 2009 he brandished a copy of the blueprints from Auschwitz as he denounced Ahmadinejad’s statements that the Holocaust never happened.

In retrospect, the Bibi Bomb was a perfect public relations tool. With his red marker, Netanyahu displayed a stroke of PR genius. On the international stage, with the world watching, his explosive visual aid and magical pen got the entire world talking about the threat of a nuclear Iran.

Wye would be seen to have set the groundwork for the creation of a Palestinian state

David_Grossman

Blaming Israel for the violence in Gaza, he ends up justifying Hamas’s terrorism.

In the Thirties it was common for anti-Semites to call on Jews to “go to Palestine!”

Netanyahu-Obama-030212

Obama never hid his contempt for the Israeli government or the majority of Israel’s voters.

“This arbitrary ban is an ugly stain on our democracy, and it also undermines the rule of law.”

We take US “aid” for psychological reasons-if we have an allowance, that means we have a father.

ZIM Piraeus isn’t Israeli-owned or flagged, incidentally, it is Greek operated.

Foolish me, thinking the goals were the destruction of Hamas thereby giving peace a real chance.

The free-spirted lifestyle didn’t hold your interest; the needs of your people did.

And why would the U.S. align itself on these issues with Turkey and Qatar, longtime advocates of Hamas’s interests?

Several years ago the city concluded that the metzitzah b’peh procedure created unacceptable risks for newborns in terms of the transmission of neo-natal herpes through contact with a mohel carrying the herpes virus.

The world wars caused unimaginable anguish for the Jews but God also scripted a great glory for our people.

We were quite disappointed with many of the points the secretary-general offered in response.

Judging by history, every time Hamas rebuilds their infrastructure, they are stronger than before.

His father asked him to read Psalms from the Book of Tehilim every day.

With his decision to unite with Hamas, Mahmoud Abbas has thrown away diplomacy and chose terrorism instead.

Before I knew it, we were suddenly busy with shopping, packing, and more shopping. My daughter was going to Israel.

Several fundamental issues must first be addressed before a substantive and enduring peace agreement can be reached.

As Jews, we assume a myriad of financial obligations in order to ensure that we live in accordance with the tenets of our faith. We give generously to our shuls and make charitable donations to various organizations that service the Jewish community. But one of the biggest investments we make is in our children’s future, as we enroll them in one of the many quality yeshivas our community boasts.

Whether it emanates from world leaders or media reports, there is a barrage of public opinion chastising Israel for policies that supposedly impede the path to peace in the Middle East.

With the dramatic stroke of a red marker, the “Bibi Bomb” became an instant sensation.

When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stood before world leaders on September 27 at the 67th session of the United Nations General Assembly, he faced a colossal challenge. Despite the vocal skepticism of those who feel the situation is not as dire as he maintains, Netanyahu has been steadfast in his insistence that Iran is well on its way to stockpiling enough enriched uranium to construct a nuclear bomb.

When analyzing the Arab-Israeli conflict, it is very easy to pinpoint the horrific acts of terror carried out by Palestinian terrorists as a critical issue that must be addressed before there can be any substantive conversations about a true and lasting peace agreement.

When the shrill sound of the telephone ringing shattered the silence in our home at 5:30 in the morning on Monday, October 18, I got out of bed and answered the call with great trepidation and a sense of dread. I realized that if someone was calling our house that early in the morning, it was in all likelihood not good news. The voice on the other end of the line belonged to my father-in-law, who, in a trembling voice, told me my sister-in-law had passed away suddenly. I then had to turn to my wife and gently tell her that her sister was gone.
