Don't worry, RW cognitive dissonance knows no bounds. This information will just bounce off of their thick skulls. You know, if they even encounter it at all in their sterile. fact-resistant echo chambers.

So President Fartbongo is clearly putting the interests of these desert-dwelling brown skinned people ahead of those of real Americans. Whar jobs Fartbongo, WHAR?

FTFA: Obama and Peres have often demonstrated signs of a warm relationship, with the American president with the American president offering the Israeli president the Presidential Medal of Freedom last year.

 Its one thing to receive an international recognition, like a Nobel. Its another to give/receive a foreign country's medal of honor while in office making policy. This makes me uncomfortable, both the giving and the receiving.

Part of me wonders if this was sort of a jab at Netanyahu since I don't think him and Peres agree on much.

What about Benghazi? We need to stay focused because he is coming for our guns. Obama already made my son gay and made me buy so many new guns I couldn't pay my rent. He raised my taxes so much on Jan 1st I can't afford to buy cigarettes. I sure as hell can't buy them with my food stamps. To top it all off my mobile home has a leaky roof. I hate Obama.

This is Netanyahu's reach around after farking Obama during the election season.  Obama and Israel don't get along just like they didn't get along for the last 4 years.

And it's a good thing.  Because both Israel and Obama suck royal ass.  I sure hope they don't start working together.

It's Shimon Peres, not Bibi. Peres knows a thing or two about getting along to get along, whereas Bibi wants to be The Guy - which is why Bibi always comes off as an asshole, and Peres is usually seen as second banana (even when he was PM, it looked like he was part of a team, rather than a leader).

Because every "Jobs" bill that the Republican controlled House comes up with overturns ObamaCare, cuts taxes for the 1%, and bans abortion. Besides that, I thought the government can't create jobs? Everything is pretty much the same as it was under Bush. Corporate profits are already at an all time high. What else can Obama do? More tax cuts that didn't work or offshore more jobs? Let factories run wild and destroy the environment like they used to? I don't understand what else the government can do. Highly profitable Corporations are not hiring because they don't need the workers. It's that simple.

This is true but "ben" or "šbaḥ" in Libyan Arabic is a nullifying suffice like "un" or "dis" in English.

So the direct translation of "Benghazi" is "non-gate".

I think divesting from those countries would be a great idea!  I was in Iraq in 2003, and along with Afghanistan and Pakistan, being in those countries has done us way more harm than good.    Our aid to Egypt is solely for and dependent on Egypt not attacking Israel; it serves no other purpose.  It's a blatant bribe to not attack Israel.

The only difference between Israel and the other countries you mentioned is that Israel has a zionist determination that they are destined to get their way no matter how ignorant they are, and that they think that god has made America servile to that destiny.  I don't have the quotes handy, but Bibi and others in power have been caught calling Americans fools, saying we're only good for the money we provide, and accusing Obama-era America of needing to "regain Israels trust"(why we need to do this, I do not know).  There is no benefit to America.

Saudi Arabia
Libya (until just recently)
China
Pakistan
etc.

With Israel, the only Democratically run middle-east country that provides an exchange of future weapons technology should stand head-and-shoulders above the oil-rich dictator-run majority of the countries that we call allies.  So to the Farkers and Farkettes who chose to comment about Israel and how we should "end our alliance with them Jews and not send financial aid" (that's used to purchase US weapons, so it's really a US jobs program), please check your racist self before you wreck yourself.

See?  You can't say anything critical of Israel at all without being called a racist.  You are a race-baiterI would have the exact same things to say about our relationship with Ireland if it was full of purple people and acted like Israel(and I'm of Irish decent).  I'm a realist, with isolationist views on international relations.  I very rarely see a situation where I think foreign aid or military intervention is justifiable.  An increasing number of people agree with me, and we're not racists.

Ironically, the Republicans, who are often accused of racism and bigotry of all kinds(often correctly) are militantly supportive of Israel.  I'll leave you to explain that one, because I can't.

Mr.ElvisToiletDeath, appealing to a majority is a logical failing.  While you may surround yourself with racists, that does not absolve you of the deed.

And while I know you would love to imagine a world where Hollywood, Washington, and everyone else hate's Jews more, I will kindly leave you a little bit of reading in terms of where the USA has been in it's Antisemitism.

Here are a few excerpts:
During the years before Pearl Harbor, over a hundred antisemitic organizations were responsible for pumping hate propaganda throughout the American public... young gangs vandalized Jewish cemeteries and synagogues, and attacks on Jewish youngsters were common.

In spite of the strong Jewish participation in the African American civil rights movement of the 1950s, the Black power movement introduced considerable friction into African American-Jewish relations, especially when a native form of Islam attracted African Americans in search of an identity, while the Muslim world was at war with the Jewish state. On April 14, 1970, the radical Black power leader Stokely Carmichael declared: "I have never admired a White man, but the greatest of them was Hitler."

- Guess which one applies to you Mr.Elvis?  You're not defiling graves and beating up kids in the streets... but here on the internet you put up this Mr.Defender of freedom cloak, while you denigrate a whole ethnic group and a close US military ally with racist defenses like "they think we're American idiots and only want our money".  Please excuse me if I label you a Jew hater, but if it quacks like a duck and walks a like a duck...

/Republican, Democrat, Independent, I'm not going to play your politics game.  I know you're here on Fark commenting on an article where Israel is giving Obama an honor and you're spewing hate.  If a certain people are always wrong, then you must be a racist, no politics necessary.
//Haters gonna hate
 
2013-02-19 03:54:15 PM  
One last thing Mr.Elvis, I do not hold a grudge against you... for you only know what your parents taught you and your community reinforced.  But make no mistake, the Irish hate the Jews too... more so than any other European country actually:

'Ireland most hostile country in Europe' Foreign Ministry accuses Irish government of inciting against Israel. Dublin City Council sponsors display presenting IDF soldiers as 'Nazi troops' abusing Palestinians

China is our favored trading partner since Clinton. We sell them everything and buy anything from core military components to everyday household luxuries.  Granted we're not running military exercises with them like the Israeli's or sharing intelligence, so you are right.  We're heavily allied financially and industrially with them, but not militarily.

Back to the point though... is an alliance with Israel and Jews in general bad for America?  If so, compare it to our other strategic alliances...

China is our favored trading partner since Clinton. We sell them everything and buy anything from core military components to everyday household luxuries.  Granted we're not running military exercises with them like the Israeli's or sharing intelligence, so you are right.  We're heavily allied financially and industrially with them, but not militarily.

Back to the point though... is an alliance with Israel and Jews in general bad for America?  If so, compare it to our other strategic alliances...


So anyone we are not actively at war with is an ally in your estimation.

Is an alliance with Israel bad for America? In some ways yes, and some ways no. Like with many nations we have some interests in common and some that diverge. The difference is that with our relations with countries other than Israel there is not an expectation that we will conform our activities 100% to those that our ally desires.
