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.

Yishai is joined in-studio by 88-year-old Kate Bernath, grandmother of his wife, Malkah, to hear her Holocaust testimonial: What was it like as a Hungarian Jew getting off the train at Auschwitz, and how it felt to have your mother separated from you forever by Dr. Mengele.

Yishai is joined in-studio by Walter Bingham, 91 — rescued from the Nazis as a Polish child on the Kindertransport and ended up fighting against them with the British — shares his memories of Kristallnacht and of facing the German Foreign Minister who was first to hang at Nuremberg.

Then, VOI Knesset Insider Jeremy Saltan joins Yishai in-studio to discuss the relationship between the Jewish holidays established in the past and the new holidays born in the modern era of Jewish statehood. They point out that Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Day, the Day of Remembrance for the Fallen Soldiers of Israel and Victims of Terrorism, Israel Independence Day and Jerusalem Day all are marked during the “counting of the Omer” — the 50 days between Passover and Shavuot (Pentecost).

I think he forgot to say the Brocha…

Voice of Israels’s Binyamin Nakonechny joins Yishai to share the Kabbalistic perspective on rain after Passover. Then, should Israel have public transportation on Jewish holidays? And how does Israel adopt a more environmental, less litter-filled, consciousness? Seth Frantzman, op-ed editor of the Jerusalem Post, and Mati Wagner, editorial page editor of the same publication, join Yishai in-studio to discuss their latest articles, both of which address the question of the character of the Jewish state. Mati also shares his Matza-baking experiences with proud, gun-toting Jews. Finally, Dr. Alan Mazurek, vice chairman of the National Board of the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA, and Jeff Daube, director of ZOA Israel, join Yishai in-studio to discuss the possibility of rolling back the nuclear framework agreement; the challenge of the new anti-Semitism on campus; and holding on to history on the Mount of Olives.

He joins Yishai to talk about his fight against anti-Israel delegitimization efforts abroad and post-Zionist tendencies at home.

He asks, “Why do we need all the props?” And he and Yishai discuss the meaning of the splitting of the Red Sea.

He shares his dream to bring Jewish and non-Jewish students to study in Israel and get a college degree at a great price, while falling in love with — and in — the country.

Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by Rabbi Avichai Rontzki, former IDF chief rabbi (2006-2010), with the rank of Brigadier General.

Avraham Dovidovitch and his wife, Rosa Ester, look like Hassidic Jews, and they are. But they are also Zionists — that is, they are heeding their sense that God is calling his people back home to the land of Israel. They join Yishai in-studio to share the tale of their journey to observance, Hassidism and to making aliyah (immigrating to Israel) to the southern Hebron mountains. Then, Rabbi Moshe Elefant, the COO of the Orthodox Union’s Kosher certification agency, joins Yishai from New York to talk about how he is leading the effort to make medical marijuana products kosher. Finally, Michael Ordman, the founder of “Very Good News Israel,” a site whose name says it all, joins Yishai to talk about his endeavor to show the positive side of the Jewish state.

A Jerusalem woman is trying to hold on to her umbrella while withdrawing some cash at a Meah Shearim ATM, Sunday, March 9, 2014. The rain appeared out of the blue (which is how rain should), after a warm week that started to feel like summer. Well, it don’t feel like summer no more. Last […]

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 […]
