Well, well.  Here we are, watching politicians in DC caught between stances.  Do they continue to suck Israel's cock, or do they take it out of their mouth long enough to say that they don't agree with a Jewish organization, because "tolerance for all"?  My guess is they stay out of it and hope to hell it goes away before Jewish campaign contributors start holding them accountable for foreign aid votes.

They'll conveniently never notice the busses.  They get driven around in big black Suburbans after all.

Keeping people impoverished, uneducated and starving is a great way to stop racism and terrorism

F*cking idiots

You know, if they really wanted to be "even-handed," with respect to the "stop funding Israel" ad they might have run an ad about US foreign aid to Pakistan, who harbored Bin Laden, or Saudi Arabia, who funnel money to terrorists, but no, they are just pushing religious hatred. That works out so well for everyone.

From another article, so people see the comparison:

The "Jew-hating" ad in question, paid for by the Illinois-based group American Muslims for Palestine, appeared on 20 Metro buses from mid-March to mid-April. Here it is. ...

IMHO, they're  both being dickish.

Wait.

Isn't a lot of that "aid" actually more like protection money, as in "We'll give you money, don't try and destroy Israel"?

Or was that just with Egypt?
 
2014-05-18 09:23:27 PM
DRTFA.  Just off the headline though, I would think that many Jewish people just might be a tad bit leery of Hitlers public transportation.

Considering that Hitler himself was a Christian (at least as much of a Christian as the hateful assholes on the American RIght), Gellar may want to rethink the whole 'Judging a whole religion based on its worst members' thing.
 
2014-05-18 09:32:39 PM
Can we stop aid to Israel too?

Jews, like everyone else, most are fine people.  But I am not sure why the US is allied with Israel so much?

We need someone neutral in this whole affair. Someone who is half a great man, half a monster. This should equal out and create the perfect neutral leader.

I propose we do not rest until we elect Abradolf Lincler as president.

I am not sure why we feel obligated to provide aid (other than perhaps food to 3rd world countries because it is the decent thing to do) to Israel or any of the core Muslim countries... I also feel we need to stop being the world's police force. The UN is supposed to serve that function with their "Peace Keepers" right?
 
2014-05-18 09:37:10 PM
To be fair, every Middle Eastern leader during WWII was either a lackey of the Brits or an ally of Hitler. That was how the proxy battles in the Middle East set themselves up, and the same factions still exist today.

And the Grand Mufti was about the most inconsequential person of them all.

Because the US would rather choose who gets peace-kept.

As a Rabbi, I have to say, [Pamela Geller is a c*nt.](http://www.rightwingwatch.org/search/node/pamela%20geller%20ty pe:blog )
 
2014-05-18 09:42:24 PM
The bulk of the aid goes to Eygpt in order to buy their leaders [military] off from aligning against Israel as the vast majority of their people would like. If Geller gets her way she will be directly impacting her beloved country in a negative way. And by beloved country I don't mean the USA.

Exxept backwards. We pay Israel about 2 billion a year in military aid so they don't destroy Egypt, Syria...everyone else nearby... possibly the moon in case Hitler is still there.

I'm waiting on the Stop-ALLl-Foreign-Aid folks to get caught up on this.

Honestly? Because Jews in America have been convinced (without much evidence to the contrary) that Europe has pretty much washed their hands of the region, and if the Arab states around Israel decided to try and steamroll over Israel (the whole "push them into the sea" rhetoric) the Europeans would shake their heads sadly and say "that's too bad" while all the while sighing in relief that that mess is over with. This terrifies Jews the world over, since the memory of what it was like in the world without a safe haven is still way too fresh. American Jews have therefore made it well known that keeping Israel a free, Jewish state is priority number one for their vote and their money, and America is the only country where the Jewish community has the clout for that threat to work.

"My intent is to leapfrog over a media that is not even-handed, that is advancing the propaganda against the Jewish state," says Pamela.

Wait... I thought the media was controlled by the Jews? So confused...
 
2014-05-18 09:51:06 PM
Geller claims she's gotten hundreds of emails in support of the ads, but a few city bus riders are not happy, saying it's "outrageous" and "racist."

Hating someone for their religion is racist?

Also the Israelis handle a lot of overseas wetwork for the US. Provides a bit of nifty plausible deniability for us.
