Michael Oren Slams New York Times’ Anti-Israel ‘Lunacy’ In New Book
Israel’s former ambassador to the United States says there wasn’t enough time in the day to debunk all the anti-Israel “lunacy” published in The New York Times — so he just stopped trying.

Michael Oren, the widely respected historian who served as Israeli ambassador to the U.S. from 2009 to 2012, blasts The New York Times in his soon-to-be released book, “Ally: My Journey Across the American-Israeli Divide.”

“Most malicious was the op-ed page of The New York Times, once revered as an interface of ideas, now sadly reduced to a sounding board for only one, which often excluded Israel’s legitimacy,” he writes. “The page’s contributors accused Israel of ethnic cleansing, brutal militarism, racism of several stripes, and even ‘pinkwashing’ — exploiting its liberal policy toward lesbians and gays to cover up its oppression of Palestinians.”

“After a while, I simply gave up trying to debunk such lunacy,” he added.

Demonic Possession

99999The flood of bloodletting, terror attacks, kidnapping, and beheadings is beyond belief.

We continue to search for rational explanations. Perhaps it’s time to consider that humankind is in the grip of demonic posession? Are we too “scientific” to consider the existence of evil as a force? Has the behavior of “the nations” opened the door to demonic forces? Is the world possessed?

Another UN Report

99999According to the Wall Street Journal:

The U.N.’s Israel Inquisition

Another skewed report that blames the Jewish state for war crimes.
June 24, 2015 7:22 p.m. ET

“U.N. reports on Israel sometimes remind us of the classic Monty Python sketch “Nobody Expects the Spanish Inquisition!” with its screwball combination of comic ineptitude and malignant predictability. So it is with Monday’s inquisi—er, “Inquiry”—by the U.N. Human Rights Council on last summer’s war between Israel and its terrorist enemies in Gaza.

The 183-page report, from former New York state Justice Mary McGowan Davis and Senegalese lawyer Doudou Diene, purports to be even-handed by citing both Israel and Hamas for possible war crimes and violations of international law. That’s something of an achievement for the Council, which has a lopsided record of condemning Israel and whose current members include Qatar, Russia and Venezuela.

Yet the report is fundamentally an anti-Israel document.

The bias begins with a preposterous claim that Israel continues to “occupy” Gaza, despite its 2005 withdrawal, on the theory that Israel has the capacity “to send troops within a reasonable time to make its power felt.” By that standard, the U.S. occupies Canada and the Bahamas. The report accuses Israel of using “disproportionate” force and targeting residential buildings, while playing down that Hamas made a point of operating from civilian areas as a shield against Israeli retaliation and to flaunt civilian casualties.

It also indicts Israel by way of unconfirmed assumptions submitted as evidence of guilt, as in this gem:
“Given the absence of information suggesting in each case that the anticipated military advantage at the time of the [Israeli] attack was such that the expected civilian casualties and damage to the targeted and surrounding buildings were not excessive, there are strong indications that these attacks could be disproportionate, and therefore amount to a war crime.”

Its Really Simple

99999The story goes that a non-Jew came to the home of Hillel, and asked if the sage could recite the Bible while standing on one foot. Hillel’s answer was “Love your neighbor as yourself, all else is commentary”. Simple!

The “Palestine Problem” is just as easy to explain in one simple sentence. “The Arabs still reject the UN’s 1947 call for a Jewish State in Palestine.”

A third question is “How can we confront the cartoon war that has been launched against us, against the next generation, and against civilization itself?” The answer is just as simple. We must train our students in the tactics and techniques of cartoon advocacy and activism so that they can fight back.

How? That’s also simple. Just click on http://www.igg.me/at/drybones
