No Shortage of Fools

No Shortage of Fools

Absolutely everything former President GW Bush is saying to Sharon in this video turned out to be completely without foundation. It was all hot air, it was all self delusion, it was foolishness at the expenses of thousands of Jewish homes and families, and much bloodshed.

I apologize for the background noise. But I find it worth enduring. Imagine if you could lay your hands on the tape where George Armstrong Custer is talking to his men about the coming victory of Little Bighorn – you could live with a little bit of background noise, right?

The only difference is that the Bush tape is from September 14, 2005 – a month after the depurations of Jews, after their property and synagogues and fields had been burned down to the ground by crazed Arab mobs.

I suppose nowadays our leaders only come in one or two flavors: foolish and corrupt.

  1. And that should be Bush’s legacyP without foundation, hot air, delusion….

  2. David Brooks says:

    Wow GWB was/is an idiot. Who knew…

  3. It doesn’t matter who says what – man doesn’t matter – only YHWH…don’t give HaShem’s land away. It will never bring peace to give away the land He gave Israel (all 12 Tribes) to any descendant of Essau/Amalek. Leviticus 25:18 “Therefore you shall do my statutes and keep my rules and perform them, and then you will dwell in the land securely. 23 “The land shall not be sold in perpetuity, for the land is mine. For you are strangers and sojourners with me. Isaiah 40:9 You who bring good news to Tziyon, get yourself up on a high mountain; you who bring good news to Yerushalayim, cry out at the top of your voice! Don’t be afraid to shout out loud! Say to the cities of Y’hudah, “Here is your God!

  4. In my humble opinion, neither Pres. Bush nor Obama are corrupt. Ertgo; fools who are incapable os seeing the facts as they are. Peace with "Palestinians"/ Incomprehenisible! Just not attainable when the only desire of the Palestinians is the utter destruction of Israel. The author seems to be a devotee of self-delusion.

  5. George Custer was a pathetic little man who'd slaughter innocent women and children to further his political career. Glad his intel was off that day. If only GWB had good intel before setting out to "give peace a chance."

  6. Edward Lobel says:

    Everyone knew that GWB was an idiot!

  7. Edward Lobel says:

    I believe that GWB was indeed corrupt, perhaps not as president but in his run up to becoming president he was indeed as could be/
    He had a business that was getting ready to file bankruptcy and at the last second got an infusion of cash from the bin laden family, enough to sow a profit that saved him from bankruptcy then he sold the business. He then invested his ill gotten gains in the baseball club .
    He was used in that he was able to get money from texas to build a new stadium (his father was then the President, and who wouldn't give money to the son of the resident) right before he got the money to build the stadium he and his associates bought the property around the proposed stadium sight and sold it afterwards for a very tidy profit.

    Once the deal was complete the majority owner (who owned over 95% of the stock with GWB owning the balance,) he was bought out for a tidy profit.

    If that had been you or me we would have wound up being charged with all kinds of crimes. He escaped that problem because of his father's position!

  8. Edward Lobel says:

    Whether or not GWB had good intel, he was not smart enough to use it properly! He got real bad intel which he accepted and then invaded Iraq which wound up killing thousands of U.S. boys and girls in an absolutely needless war.

  9. And you trust the filthy animal now in the white house?

  10. Arie Arazi says:

    I feel uncomfortable portraying an ex president of the US (or any other country) who was expressing his opinions to our PM and other dignitaries any thing but with respect. Otherwise we may hurt the feelings of millions of Americans for no other reason than making some small talk.

  11. Chuck W Bird says:

    I am always amazed at those who think GWB and BHO are disillusioned, they know exactly what is going to happen, they both have an agenda, and it isn't in our favor.

  12. DeeAnn Thebus says:

    Exactly.

A little bit of humor on a serious Pesach subject.


Political Strategist Elie Pieprz and Knesset Insider Jeremy Saltan join Yishai to “talk Pesach” and and share their tips for the dreaded Passover preparations(i.e. clean early, clean often.) The issue of food, of course, comes up: What tastes better — Pesach lazagna or matza Pizza? Why do Sephardi Jews eat things during the holiday that Ashkenazi Jews do not? And what the heck is “gebrachats”? Then, Ayala Shapiro, aged 11, was critically wounded by a Molotov cocktail hurled by a terrorist. Ayala, who suffered third-degree burns over 40% of her body, is facing a long, complicated and painful road to recovery, after days of hovering between life and death. But you can help. Tune in to hear how. Finally, Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Yishai to get ready for the BIG Shabbat — “Shabbat HaGadaol” — before Passover. Tune in to find out more!

Seth Frantzman and Mati Wagner, op-ed and editorial page editors (respectively) at The Jerusalem Post, join Yishai in-studio. Seth just returned to Israel from a food-filled and uber-capitalist trip to Dubai. Mati just came back from a fact-finding mission about slain Argentinian prosecutor Alberto Nisman. Having both spent election night at the headquarters of the Joint Arab List in Nazareth, they discuss the accusations of bigotry against PM Benjamin Netanyahu. Then, the recent J Street conference featured remarks by White House Chief-of-Staff Denis McDonough, who said that Israel is engaged in a 50-year occupation which “must end.” The Jews in the audience clapped wildly and showed great excitement when the potential advent of a Palestinian state was discussed. Finally, Alan Elsner, Vice President for Communications at J Street, an organization that identifies itself as the “political home for pro-Israel, pro-peace Americans,” joins Yishai from Washington to explain.

In the 1950s, the Israel Defense Forces engaged in retaliatory missions after terrorist attacks. Was this a legitimate expression of defense? Is the spirit of robust deterrence still alive in Israel? Yishai shares an incredible story with Knesset Insider Jeremy Saltan about the three kidnapped youths who were massacred last summer, and how justice came to their killers. Jeremy also weighs in on potential foreign “punishment” of Israel and provides coalition updates.

Then, Pastor Dave McGarrah and Charlie Schiffman, co-hosts of the popular radio show, “The Teacher and the Preacher,” join Yishai in-studio. In Israel on tour with his flock, Pastor Dave, a Christian, and Charlie, a Jew, prove that Christian-Jewish relations can reach a new level. Listen in!

Jerusalem to Masada in under 4 Minutes 2015 from Sass Video on Vimeo.

Nothing like watching reruns of the classics on a lazy Sunday. Somehow, they always seem so timely.

h/t Washington Free Beacon And for good measure: Post by Senator Tom Cotton.

Yishai rants about Ahmed Tibi, leader of the Arab Movement for Change, an Israeli political party, who said, “We thought the Israeli public wanted change, but instead acted in a tribal way, and therefore we are left with Netanyahu.” Then, Zeev Ben-Shachar, director of Israel Education at Jerusalem U., joins Yishai in-studio to deconstruct the techniques of the Israel-haters and to lay out a strategy for fighting anti-Israel bias on campuses. Finally, Rabbi Mike Feuer and Yishai take the studio outside on a beautiful Jerusalem day to talk about the challenging issues of faith when things don’t go our way and the resulting anger. They also provide an “intro” to the Book of Leviticus and discuss the challenging issue of animal sacrifice.

Yishai is joined first by Knesset Insider Jeremy Saltan and then by VOI Bureau Chief Daniel Seaman to discuss how PM Benjamin Netanyahu beat the New York Times, the V-15 campaign, US President Barack Obama — and how the strategies of his enemies backfired. Then, David P. Goldman (known as “Spengler” in his erudite columns), is Senior Fellow at the London Center for Policy Research, Associate Fellow at the Middle East Forum and author of “How Civilizations Die (and Why Islam is Dying, Too”. He joins Yishai to discuss the hegemonic appetite of Iran, America’s explicit acceptance of it, and the mandate that PM Netanyahu has received from Israel’s voters to fight it.

Finally, Alex Traiman joins Yishai in-studio to discuss the upcoming coalition and the spiritual significance of the Likud victory, using the Purim miracle as a parable.

Yishai is joined by his wife, Malkah, to recap the Fleisher family’s voting adventures and marvel at Israel’s youth, who are deeply involved in the political process. Then, Haaretz blogger and TLV1 broadcaster Allison Kaplan Sommer joins Yishai to discuss the voting patterns of Israel’s Coastal Plain, traditionally a more liberal bloc.

Finally, a must-hear interview with Aida Touma-Sliman, the former head of the International Department of the Communist Party of Israel. Recently resigned from her post as editor-in-chief of Al-Ittihad (an Israeli daily Arabic newspaper) to run in the fifth — and realistic — slot of the Joint Arab List, she bares some tough issues that divide Muslim-Arabs and Jews in Israel.

How many people came to the nationalist rally? Why was Jerusalem such a central issue? Why did the prime minister himself take the time to show up? Yishai is joined in-studio by VOI political correspondent Raoul Wootliff to reflect on the right-wing demonstration in Tel Aviv on Sunday night.

Also, why has kissing the Mezuzah become a political issue? Listen to Yishai rant against those in the post-Zionist camp who make fun of traditional Israelis, portraying them as boorish and backward.
Then, hear the voices of the people of Israel — some pro, some con — who came out to demonstrate on Sunday night. Yishai was on the scene to provide a feel for the real mood in Israel.

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 […]
