Shimon in Stasis

Shimon in Stasis

Yesterday, Israeli President Shimon Peres decided to represent Israel’s government in discussions of the peace process with the Palestinians. He did that ahead of a gathering of Middle East leaders in a World Economic Forum meeting on the shores of the Dead Sea on the Jordanian side.

In the picture above, President Peres is being directed into a stasis chamber, where he will spend the remainder of his presidency in suspended animation. It is a special program intended to facilitate the carrying out of Israel’s defense policy by its secretary of defense, its foreign policy by the foreign office, and its general leadership decisions by the elected prime minister. All of the above appear impossible with an abundance of Shimon Peres in the vicinity.

Sleep tight, Mr. President.

Goldberg might as well have been quoting from Netanyahu’s talking points sheet.

Anti-Israel Bus Ad

The ads use of quotes from a 2001 Netanyahu speech, in which he supposedly described the U.S. as “a thing you can move very easily.” Watch the tape here.

This past summer’s war isn’t over for everyone.

“With the launch of this new historic agreement, we hope to make the lives of newlyweds better and more meaningful, so that if, God forbid, the marriage breaks up, it will be done in a fair and respectful manner.”

Bibi’s speech will be during the U.S. workday, but prime viewing time in Israel.

The report, ordered but never implemented by PM Netanyahu, determined that Israeli settlements are legal according to international law.

This isn’t the first assassination attempt against him.

Herzog, Livni and their media backers have thrown everything at Netanyahu. Voters are not impressed.

He said his mission is “fateful, maybe even historic.”

The report seems unbelievable, but the newspaper has an interesting track record.

Snow is uniting the American people, so to speak. An area in every one of the 50 states, including Hawaii, will see snow this week, according to the WeatherBell site. This week will be the first time since 2012 that even Florida will see snow. New York is expected to get another 3-4 inches today, […]

On Thursday evening, students at the Orot Etzion Boys Elementary School in Efrat reenacted different Biblical scenes as part of an interactive live art/Torah exhibition for the month of Adar. Every floor, corner, class and even staircase of the school (think Jacob’s ladder) showed off exhibits and models the students put together by themselves. In […]

A proposed law would require the Senate to approve the deal. Obama threatens to veto it.

Pat Condell has a new video out, so, sit back, have fun. By the way, Message to Offended Muslims should not be confused with Message to Off Handed Muslims. Also, I’d love to hear what he has to say about Haredim.

The description that came with this picture says: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks with American actor Bette Midler during an event at the house of Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan in Hollywood on March 6, 2014.

An Israeli female soldier (because they’re better at removing babies from their homes) evacuates a baby from a settlement in Judea and Samaria some time in the recent past. I’m thinking, if the baby was angry enough, couldn’t he evacuate in return, right there in her arms? Imagine the same picture, except with a settler […]
