The Brat With No Hat (With apologies to Dr. Seuss, wherever he may be)

The sun did not shine.
It was too wet to play.
So they sat in Geneva
With murderers all day.

And then
We connected the dots!
How those dots made us plotz!

We looked!
Could not believe the nerve of the brat!
We looked!
And we saw it!
The Brat with no Hat!
And he said to us,
“We’re gonna make peace just like that.”

I know it is dumb
And this brat is not funny.
When he mails us this treason, using lots of bad money!

“I know some appeasements we can play,”
Said the brat.
“I know some new tricks,”
Said the Brat with no Hat.
“Capitulations to terrorists true,
Your mother
Will be blown to bits when we do.”

Then you and I
Did not know what to word.
We were tongue-tied and forlorn when we read the ‘accord.’
But our lemmings said, “No! No!
We can make the war go away!
Just tell all them settlers that they just cannot stay

“They should not be there.
They should not be about.
They should not be around
When the bombers come out!”

“Now! Now! Have no fear.
Have no fear!” said the brat.
“My accords are not bad,”
Said the Brat with no Hat.

“Why, we can have
Lots of fun, yes we shall,
With a game that I call
Send the Guns to the Pals!”

“Stop the deaths!” said the Jews.
“Stop, we see red!
Reverse course!” said the Jews,
“Before we’re all dead!”

“Have no fear!” said the brat.
“When have I been wrong?
Their right of return should be implemented ?fore long,
With a pen in my hand!
And sly tricks up my sleeve!
That is not ALL I have done!”
(Just ask Steve.)

“Look at me!
Look at me now!” said the brat.
“With a terrorist deal
I’ve pulled out of my hat!

“I can set up TWO states!
One for them and one more!
Two states for two peoples!
And thereafter war!

“And look!
I can hop up and down on the law!
But that is not all!
Oh, no.
That is not all…

“Look at me!
“Look at me!
Look at me NOW!
It is fun to surrender
But you have to know how.

“And look! With my arm
I can hold a red flag!
To promote my agenda
With no Aloni hag!
But that is not all.
Oh, no.
That is not all.”

That is what the brat said…
Kassem rockets dead ahead!
And you and I,
We saw ALL the bombs fall!

“Now look what you did!”
Said the Jews to the brat.
“You gave them a state!
How could you do that?

“You sank our own state,
Sank it deep in the mud.
You set them up armed
And sank us in blood.

“You SHOULD NOT be here,
When common sense is not.
You get out of this house!”
Said the Jews to the sot.

“But I like to be here.
Oh, I like it a lot!”
Said the Brat with no Hat
To the Jews on the spot.

“I will NOT go away.
I do NOT wish to go!
And so,” said the Brat with no Hat,
“SoSosSo…
I will show you
Another good game that I know!”

And then he ran out.
And fast as a fox,
He flew to Geneva and
came back with a box.

A treasonous box.
To be sold hook or crook.
“Now look at this deal,”
Said the Brat.
“Take a look!”

“I will impose my will.
On the Jews, otherwise
I will force upon them to submit, to demise.”

The Jews and I
did not know what to do.
So we had to shake hands
with Thing One and Thing Two.

We shook Yasir’s paws.
While our minds said, “No! No!
Those Things should not be,
In this land! Make them go!

“They should not be here,
When they shoot at us guns!
Put them out! Put them out!”
Said the Jews of the bums.

“Have no fear, little Jews,”
said the Brat with no Hat.
“These Things are good Things.”
And he gave them a pat.

“They are tame. Oh, so tame!
They have come here to play.
They will give you some peace
On this bright Oslo day.”

The entertainment industry appears divided about the conflict between Israel and Hamas.

Grandparents of 4 year old Daniel Tragerman mourn during his funeral at the Hevel Shalom Cemetery in Southern Israel. The boy was murdered by Hamas.

Israelis in Gaza border communities need to get out; who will help them?

The contrast between the mentality of Israel and the mentality of Hamas was never so loudly expressed as when the Arab killers became heroes and the Jewish killers became prisoners.

There is a threat today representing a new category of missionary:They call themselves “Hayovel.”

Just as we would never grant legitimacy to ISIS, we should not grant legitimacy to Hamas.

Is Woodstock still leading the world to destruction?

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

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!”

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.

It’s six K, five K, four K, Graft !
(Daylight come and da jail’s his new home)

In 2012, an initiative was begun in the Knesset led by David Rotem (from the Yisrael Beitenu party), to cut the stipends and pensions paid to convicted murderers and terrorists by 50 percent.

When the Temple was in existence, Jews were religiously obligated to eat roast meat at least once a year.

I have frequently drawn up lists of what I love most about Israel, and Arik Einstein has ranked high.

In the past, the law school prohibited the singing of Hatikvah.

American non-Orthodox Jews are intermarrying their way into post-Jewish oblivion, and they’re doing so as a direct result of having emptied their version of Judaism of all meaning.

The Taliban is all too willing to obliterate anything attesting to ancient Jewish life and culture.
