THE SUFFERING JEW

Peres Can’t Leave His Ghetto Mentality

Shimon Peres, even at the age of 90, cannot get rid of his Polish-rooted Jewish ghetto mentality.

President Shimon Peres met with the Congressional Black Caucus in Jerusalem Tuesday and whined about the long-suffering Jews whose only friend on Planet Earth is the United States, may it live another 120 years.

“We’re fortunate to have our special relations with America, we’re alone, isolated and often attacked, and you support us not because of oil but because of values,” Peres said. “When it comes to defending our land, there was no request which President Obama did not accept.

“President Obama and Secretary Kerry are trying to bring peace to this region. Secretary Kerry’s contribution has been incredible,” he said. “This is a small country with a long history and while it is not simple, it can be done.”

Poor, poor Israel, So isolated. So often attacked. Just like in Europe. Just like in Spain, Just like in the Crusades, Just line under the Roman and Greek empires.

Forget Israel under Kings Saul, David and Solomon. Forget the First and Second Holy Temples. They only were footnotes to the suffering Jew, with his wretched hand held out for support from the high and mighty, from the United States of America, from President Barack Obama himself.

Peace, peace, peace, says Peres. Just give us peace. Take our land. Sure, it is where we live and used to live, but the Arabs need another country, and charity begins away from home.

We have the whole Negev to ourselves. Sure, the Bedouin are taking it over, but we still control Be’er Sheva. And it has the country’s largest mall.

And Kerry really is incredible. He has promised us peace, so let’s make the painful concession of giving up our ability to defend ourselves and considering Israel a Jewish state.

After all, with friends like the United States, we don’t care about enemies. Just look how Obama stared down Assad. Look how he outsmarted Iran. Look how he has stabilized Egypt.

If Peres has his way, Israel will always be poor, poor Israel.

    Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu. I suggest you do a post graduate course in journalism at another university. Your first one has probably fleeced you for a lot of money, and you have gained precious little in return.

  2. Lately there are lotsof articles nsimilar to this one. People are in general not smart enough to und4erstand what they are all about. Many lefties as well who could not give a damn about their country.

  3. Shimon and Bibi – a perfect combination of Pres. & PM. You just don't get it Tzvi, you just can't shake off your American "sound bite" instant judgement approach to a subtle partnership between the two great men we are fortunate to have in the leadership of Israel. Why do you think Bibi has asked Shimon for "one more year"?
