Nobody Knew, Nobody knows

Democracy, Arabs,  MSM, Media, Rebellion, 2011,  Orson Wells,  : Dry Bones cartoon.
Much of the Western Main Stream Media sees the uprisings as positive and pro-democracy. Basically, what we have, they seem to be saying, is a “Happy Ending”.

Unfortunately that reminds me of a quote by American film director Orson Wells. When asked about how to make a film with a happy ending, he responded by saying that making a happy ending simply “depends on where you stop your story”.

Unfortunately, in the real world the story is not stopping here. It’s going on, and nobody knows how and when it stops! And nobody knows if it’s going to have a “happy ending”.

Iran Adopts Bill Clinton’s ‘New Middle East’ Phrase 

Bill Clinton may get what he wished for. He envisioned a ‘new Middle East.’ So does Iran, which says the Islamic Republic will be its axis.

Be sure to watch the video. ‘The Policeman Fired a Burst at Me, I was Full of Blood’  Monday’s evacuation and destruction of the Havat Gilad outpost in Samaria turned extremely violent. Israel National News TV visited the residents following the incident and heard their testimony about what had happened. And here. Here too. And here.

This says it all

the Crazy Guy (1982)

Arafat, Beirut, Gaddafi, Lebanon, War. Lebanon War

Arafat, Beirut, Gaddafi, Lebanon

Today’s “Golden Oldie” is from July 05, 1982.

Here’s the story behind the cartoon:

A year before (in July of 1981) Israel had agreed to a ceasefire with Yasser Arafat’s terrorist army in Lebanon (Between 15-18,000 PLO terrorist soldiers were in dozens of locations in Lebanon).

But in the 11 months that followed the “ceasefire”, the PLO carried out 270 terrorist actions in Israel. Twenty-­nine Israelis died and more than 300 were injured in these attacks. The last straw was on June 3, 1982, when the Palestinian terrorists shot Israel’s Ambassador to Great Britain, Shlomo Argov. Though not killed, he remained in a coma for three months and was then left permanently paralysed and in need of constant medical assistance for the rest of his life.

Three days after the attack on Israel’s Ambassador in London, on June 6, 1982, Israel’s army poured across the border to fight the PLO forces stationed in Lebanon . . .PLO chieftain Yasser Arafat and his murderous PLO terrorist forces were trapped!

Gaddafi then sent a public message to Afafat which said:

“I advise you to commit suicide rather than to accept disgrace. Your suicide will immortalise the cause of Palestine for future generations. Your blood is the fuel of the revolution. Let suicide be the priority. It is the road to victory”.

Which led to my doing today’s Golden Oldie about Gaddafi.

Subject: An American Indian Marries A Jewish Girl
An American Indian comes back to the Reservation to visit with his parents after spending some time in New York. He tells his father that he’s fallen in love with a nice Jewish girl.
His father is mortified and says, “You’re betraying your heritage and you’ll break your mother’s heart that you’re not marrying a precious Indian girl….and you know how Jews are, they’ll feel the same way and you’ll be ostracized in both camps!”
The Indian son reassures his father, “Don’t worry.  The Jewish family has already accepted the situation because they’ve gone ahead and given their daughter an Indian name.”
“Really?” asks the father.  “What name?”
The son answers… “Sitting Shiva.”


Policeman Rescues Torahs from Quake-Hit Synagogue A New Zealand policeman forbade a Chabad rabbi from rescuing an earthquake-destroyed synagogue’s Torah scrolls – and instead, did it himself.

Tootsie Roll Pops, Blow Pops and Junior Mints. Yes, these beloved American candies, which have eluded observant Jews for decades, are going Kosher! The OU made an announcement earlier this week, and the Kosher sweets should be hitting the shelves in the next few months. Maybe Tootsie Roll Industries should consider reviving their classic commercials with some Kosher animals:
