JARED KUSHNER couldn’t stare down an uncompromising foe if his wife, Ivanka Trump, held his soft, lily-white hand throughout the ordeal.

Yet ridiculously, a May 22, McClatchy article claimed Mr. Kushner was fixing to “stare down uncompromising foes in fights over immigration and Middle East peace.”

Let us begin with our debutant’s Middle East peace plan, the thing his father-in-law calls “the deal of the century.”

The notion of Jared solving the Israeli-Palestinian vexation is laughable, perhaps the dumbest thing ever. You just know this is a vain Ivanka move to brand the region and add it to her CV. (Ivanka, to those who don’t know, is intent on riding to the presidency herself on her father’s coattails.)

The Arabs slated to partake in the Kushner summit, Bahraini, Saudi and Emirati participants, are likely laughing the hardest.

For one, the Arabs know that Ivanka is calling the shots—and that the president’s fashion-focused daughter is behind the branding of the sexually androgynous, intellectually inchoate production that is Jared Kushner. If you think that’s something Arabs respect, you don’t know Shiite from Shinola.

Wily Arabs are hip to White House dynamics. They know who’s running the West Wing and who to flatter. Some in the region have even given Donald Trump a dubious honorific, Abu Ivanka al-Amriki. Being known as “father of Ivanka the American” is, of course, no honor in the muscular, manly Middle East.

The timing of the Kushner peace plan is especially asinine. For all the upheaval in the region, the Palestinian Problem has nevertheless dropped off the geopolitical radar as an urgent matter to resolve.

For better or for worse, the two sides are locked in a deadly, tightly choreographed dance. The Palestinians rise in frustration and fury; the Israelis respond with overwhelming force. The world then offers-up perfunctory sympathy for the Palestinians. Everybody moves on.

It’s just the way it is. The world has become desensitized to the plight of the Palestinians.

Take the Economist—a liberal, pro-Palestinian, most excellent weekly. Its editors cogitated but briefly over the Israeli army’s last use of excessive force against the M.O.P.E (Most Oppressed People Ever), concluding nonchalantly that, “Every state has a right to defend its borders.” “It is time for Palestinians to take up genuine non-violence.”

In other words, “Grow up, Palestinians. The stone-throwing was cute when your struggle was in its infancy.”

Understandably, the Palestinians will have no truck with the Trump administration.

Then there’s Bibi Netanyahu’s ingenious, Israel First tactics. You have to be a special kind of dumb—Jared and Ivanka dumb—to imagine you can present Bibi with a plan to fix his part of the world. The Israeli prime minister will make the right noises and will … have Jared for breakfast.

Netanyahu has been busy befriending “once hostile neighbors and has gained the respect of world leaders.” Like himself, his new friends (the murderous Saudi regime is among them) don’t seem to care much that Israel’s “supposedly temporary occupation [of 4.5 million Palestinians] has become permanent conquest.”

Don’t blame me for dishing Middle Eastern realpolitik. These are just the facts and the deductions therefrom.

By the Economist’s telling, Mr. Netanyahu’s strategy toward the Palestinians is a finely honed “anti-solutionism.” Netanyahu “has sought to convince Israelis that the conflict can be managed, if the right people are put in charge of managing it, and thus need not be solved.”

From experience, Netanyahu knows that an “anti-solutionism” puts his army and him in control, to better deliver on the security needs of the Israelis. This makes Bibi even more of a mystery to the self-aggrandizing Kushners. After all, they are not acting in America’s self-interest. A provincial leader who does just that is anathema to the mindset dominant in America.

Like him or not, the conservative, patriotic Bibi will not allow Jared Kushner to steer Israel in a radical direction. Instead, Bibi will likely let The American rattle on about radical change (which he, Jared, will not have to live through), and will quietly ignore him in favor of maintaining the safer status quo.

You see, the Israeli prime minister is a grizzled old warrior—and a true populist, the kind that builds walls to protect his people and passes laws to safeguard their ancient patrimony.

Netanyahu and his new Sunni partners will make polite noises and then shrug off this Middle-East plan with a hearty laugh and some good arak, behind Jared’s slender, sylphlike back.

As the Economist noted derisively—its writers, too, are radicals in the mold of Jared and Ivanka—Netanyahu is no radical. He is a reactionary nationalist. Temperamentally conservative,” and “wary of change,” as all true conservatives ought to be, Netanyahu “governs as if Israel needs no change.” The Israeli prime minister has even passed nation-state legislation consecrating Israel as the home of the Jewish people.

But by golly, Bibi will give the first-couple-in-waiting good hospitality—leading Ivanka and her poodle to “think” they succeeded in plastering their brand on the region. Then he’ll send Ivanka’s emissary packing, to be celebrated by his clueless American fans.

And the region will return to its old ways.

Bibi, moreover, reads his voters well. The appetite for the charade that are the Israeli-Palestinians peace talks has diminished. “The percentage of Israelis favoring talks with the Palestinians has dropped from over 70 percent to closer to 50 percent over the past decade. Among Mr. Netanyahu’s supporters it is 30 percent.”

In case you’re unfamiliar with Bibi’s base—supporters of Likud since the party’s inception—they are, “Voters from conservative religious and working-class backgrounds, Russian-speaking immigrants and Mizrahi Jews (who are descended from immigrants from the Arab world).” The political equivalent of Trump’s deplorables.

To sum, “should it ever to arrive,” Mr. and Mrs. Kushner’s peace plan “will be dead on arrival.”


Americans like Jared and Ivanka don’t know the past and show little respect for it. Netanyahu, however, understands history and what it portends for the future. “Because the Palestinian issue cannot be solved,” Bibi’s statecraft entails preparing his people for a reality they understand all too well:

“We will forever live by the sword.” Bibi’s words in 2015.

Let us wrap-up on a more mirthful note.

Here’s some stuff our oracular Mr. Jared has said about rainbows and unicorns in the Middle East:

“Progress could ‘look like a lot of different things.” “Success ‘can look like an agreement, it can look like a discussion, it could lead to closer cooperation, maybe resolve a couple of issues.”

Now that’s deep. Reality TV deep.

    Solid assessment. Bibi’s ruthlessness in pursuit of his people’s interests is something I wish my people’s leaders would emulate. Instead, they buy into the Israeli gaslighting and flattery and beclown themselves with paens to “Judeo-Christianity,” “America’s greatest ally,” and “the ME’s only democracy.” It’s debatable whether Bibi’s “forever war” is in fact in the best interests of Israeli Jews, but no one can credibly claim he’s a tool of foreign powers. The Empire, on the other hand, is most definitely in thrall to a people whose American diaspora makes up less than 3% of its population.

    In which case, Jared might be getting some purposeful tips from the crew at this year’s Bilderberg confab, where he is on the guest list to attend. Anything’s possible (or so they think)…

    I wish Trump would just keep his moron SIL on Israel-Palestinian affairs only. Who cares if he F’s it all up. It’d be no different from where it was 10, 20, 50 years ago. But everything Jared touches turns to shite, including his POS prison reform plan and atrocious immigration bill. Trump’s turned into a POS because he put his POS SIL in charge of everything, incl. his signature campaign issue, immigration.

  6. Netanyahu (and most Israelis) don’t want the problem be resoved, neither does Mahmoud Abbas (and most Palestinians). Abbas has already explicitly stated that he will not accept the plan whatever it is. Under such circumstances the only result of Jared’s and Ivanka’s mission might be that Ivanka will get some lucrative contracts for selling her designer shoes in the Middle East, like she did in China. God help us if ever this naive and ignorant woman will run for president!

    Meanwhile Netanyahu is in deep doodoo. After winning the election he failed to form a majority party. So there will be a do over election. This means the PIECE Plan is dead for the time being.

    The final round: Netanyahu versus Liberman

  11. renfro says:

    Here’s the Kushner, Greenblatt, Friedman peace plan. Its not new. Its a transfer plan.

    The Jerusalem Summit

    1. The conventional-wisdom paradigm for the resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has failed woefully, bringing nothing but misery and despair to both sides – but particularly to the Palestinians as individual human beings.


    2. This conventional paradigm has attempted to solve the conflict by means of a Political Approach involving the establishment of a self governing Palestinian entity on territories in Judea Samaria and Gaza which have been under Israeli control since 1967 i.e. on the basis of a “Land for Peace” approach.

    3. Dispassionate assessment of the history of the conflict and its current development will strongly suggest that persisting with attempts to attain a political solution on the basis the conventional paradigm are at best futile – and at worse harmful. Accordingly, alternative modes of resolution must be pursued.

    B. Analysis

    1. Analysis of Palestinian deeds and declarations over the years make it difficult to avoid the conclusion that they are in effect both unwilling and incapable of achieving and maintaining statehood.
    (a) Palestinian Unwillingness: This is reflected in the fact that the Palestinians have rejected every single viable proposal which would have afforded them a state – from the 1947 partition plan to the 2000 Barak proposals.

    (b) Palestinian Incapability: The Palestinian national movement has enjoyed conditions far more favorable than almost any other national independence movement since WW-II – widespread international endorsement of their cause, unmitigated support of a superpower in the decades of the Cold War, highly sympathetic coverage by the major media organizations, and over a decade of Israeli administrations who have acknowledged (and at times even identified with) the Palestinians declared national aspiration. In spite of this, the achievements of Palestinian national movement have been more miserable than almost any other national independence movement – bringing nothing but privation and penury to its people.
    2. It is thus far easier to understand Palestinian conduct if one assumes that it is driven less by lack of Palestinian self determination and more by the very the existence of Jewish self determination; less by the aspiration to establish a Palestinian state and more by the aspiration to dismantle a Jewish state.


    3. The latter, and seemingly more plausible, explanation of Palestinian behavior – i.e. rejection of Jewish self determination and the dismantling of the Jewish nation state – reflects an agenda totally unacceptable by any international standards and thus must be branded as devoid of any legitimacy.

    4. Accordingly if the accepted version of the Palestinian narrative – i.e. a desire for Palestinian self determination and the aspiration for Palestinian statehood – cannot be reconciled with the history of Palestinian behavior, this narrative also must be branded as devoid of any legitimacy.

    5. This issue of legitimacy of narrative is crucial. Indeed the very fuel of the Political Paradigm involving the establishment of a Palestinian state is the perception – or rather the misperception – of the presently prevailing Palestinian narrative as legitimate.

    C. Conclusion

    1. The establishment of a Palestinian State must removed from the international agenda.

    2. However, removing the issue of a Palestinian state from the international agenda will not eliminate the humanitarian predicament of Palestinians residing in Israeli-administered areas.

    3. This is clearly an issue that must be addressed and resolved. But it must be addressed not in political terms but in humanitarian ones.

    4. Thus, to successfully resolve the Palestinian problem, the Political Paradigm must be replaced by a Humanitarian Paradigm. This, however can only be done if the current Palestinian narrative, which fuels the Political Paradigm, is de-legitimized.
    5. Thus, the de-legitimization of the Palestinian narrative becomes a vital prerequisite to any comprehensive resolution of the Palestinian issue.

    D. Proposal

    1. A comprehensive Humanitarian Approach to the Palestinian issue would entail three major elements:
    (a) The dissolution of UNRWA – which will end the discriminatory treatment of the Palestinians with regard to their status as refugees;

    (b) The termination of ethnic discrimination against Palestinians , living in the Arab world – which will end the discriminatory treatment of the Palestinians with regard to their status as residents;

    (c) Generous relocation grants to Palestinians living in Israeli administered territories on an individual basis and not via any official Palestinian organization.

    2. UNRWA is an organization that perpetuates the Palestinian refugee problem. It is an anomalous organization which exists solely to deal with Palestinian refugees, while all the other refugees on the face of the globe are dealt with by the UN High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR).

    3. The organizations not only deal differently with the refugees under their auspices, they each have different definitions for classifying an individual as a “refugee”.

    4. This difference in definition has far-ranging consequences. For in contrast to the UNHCR definition, which results in a decline in the number of refugees over time, the UNRWA definition leads to an inflation of the number.

    5. In fact, if the UNHCR’s otherwise universal definition were applied to the Palestinian case, the number of refugees would decline from 4-5 million to 200-300,000 i.e. by over 90%!!

    6. It thus appears that UNWRA is perpetuating the very problem it was designed to eliminate.
    7. Accordingly, the dissolution of UNRWA is an essential prerequisite for any comprehensive, durable settlement of the Palestinian issue.

    8. With the dissolution of UNWRA, the remaining, and drastically reduced, number of Palestinian refugees, should be placed under the auspices of UNHCR – in accordance with the accepted practice for all other refugee groups on the face of the globe.

    9. Those Palestinians no longer classed as refugees under the new arrangements, must be offered all the privileges afforded all other peoples resident in their current countries of domicile in the Arab world — including the right to acquire citizenship.

    10. In order to do this, a vigorous diplomatic and media campaign must be mounted to induce Arab governments to end their harsh discriminatory behavior towards the millions of Palestinians domiciled in their countries and absorb them into their societies as fully fledged citizens. After all, even the Palestinians assert (in the opening paragraph of their National Covenant) that they are “part of the Arab Nation”.

    11. As for the Palestinians resident in Israeli administered territory, there is only one reasonable and feasible alternative that will facilitate:
    (a) extricating them from their dire humanitarian plight;
    (b) free them from the yoke of generations of misrule by their leadership;
    (c) ensure the survival of Israel as the nation-state of the Jews.

    12. This is a generous relocation and resettlement package to allow them to build a new life for themselves and their families in countries preferably, but not necessarily exclusively, with similar religious and socio-cultural conditions.

    13. In order to minimize the ability of organized Palestinian interest groups to impede the success of such an effort, the offer of financial inducement to emigrate must be “atomized” – i.e. made to individual Palestinian breadwinners on a one-to one personal level and not on a communal level via some formal Palestinian entity.
    14. A survey conducted among the Palestinians in Nov. 2004 indicates that only about 15% of the Palestinian population resident in Israeli administered areas would reject such an offer outright. By contrast, over 70% would accept some form of material compensation as an inducement to emigrate permanently from the areas currently under Israeli administration (see
    15. The economic cost of such a policy of generously financed humanitarian relocation and resettlement would be eminently affordable and would compare favorably with almost all other settlement proposals on the table today. Indeed, its total cost would be around 50% of the present total US outlay on the War in Iraq!!

    16. Indeed, given Israel’s present level of GDP, it is an initiative that it could well undertake on its own over the next decade to a decade and a half. It should be realized that this is the period that has elapsed since the initiation of the Oslo process – which has brought nothing but failure and tragedy at the cost of billions of dollars and thousands of lives.

    17. Of course, if the US, the EU and other developed nations were to contribute to this effort, it could be implemented in a far shorter space of time and with almost no burden on the world economy.

    18. Quite the opposite, the Palestinians arriving in their new countries of domicile will not be impoverished refugees but reasonably affluent émigrés. The funds that they would be bringing with them would provide a considerable boost for the economies of these nations – most of which would be developing countries with a pressing need for such a substantial influx of funds.

    E. Summary

    The proposed initiative constitutes a “win-win” proposal which will:
    Alleviate, and even eliminate, the humanitarian plight of individual Palestinians

    Ensure the continued security and survival of Israel as the Nation-State of the Jewish people

    Provide a Significant Boost to the Economies of the Developing World

    Transform poverty stricken refugees into affluent émigrés

Assange like the Palestinians
    is suppose to just lay down and go away..

The individual nation states are competing to commit more crimes against humanity than the others. Rewards are handed out as the deaths and crimes increase. for more..

    My view is Journalism is sick; it denies those it once defended? Journalism, has become a profession of harassins. Any fellow journalist who refuse induction to the MIC, or who fail its boot camps, or who refuse thereafter, to adhere to the “don’t rock the boats that promote hell or produce in print that which has not been outlined”, will find the crime corrupted nation state laws are designed to require journalist to either defend, un-justice or alternatively to beg to be executed in order to avoid the pain of slow death torture.

    Journalist now produce propaganda and sell it as produced content. The privately owned media collects the funds (from paid advertising) that propels the distribution of journalist produced propaganda to the spied on, psycho-controlled, behavior regulated, working masses.
    Journalism is not about a DOA peace plan offered by those who don’t know or respect history Nor about indited leaders of nation states or head chopping Sunni Arab leaders, or whom ever; Journalism is about the helping to cover up of crime, and producing the propaganda that makes a false flag into reality.

    Journalism has died, true journalist are now in journalist heaven, and the powers that control the nation states are enhancing and widening the total virtual environment so that the surviving journalist can produce the propaganda that supports the gun selling, regime changing, sex and drug dealing, oil and communication monopolies that have made organized crime so profitable over the centuries. . One global nation state power to dictate corruption as a political ideal and as the only legitimate type of business to the entire 7 billion person world is much more efficient than dealing with many smaller nations that keep trying to revert to . Journalism is help the powers that be to corrupt the entire world.

    Don’t believe the zionist mafia’s words. They have been lying to YOU for centuries.
    If the dumb Ivanka is so determined, then why she does not solve Americans’ problems. Look around, all the smaller businesses are falling DOWN. Have you gone to the Mall. Half of the businesses have been bankrupt. If she was that ‘determined’, then why she had to ABANDONED HER OWN RELIGION AND BECOME A JEW FOLLOWING THEIR STUPID LAWS? She even could not attend her own father’s ceremony at the time of election to OBSERVE STUPID JEWISH LAW on Friday. The stupid and backward jewish law tells her not to touch any thing ‘modern’ even don’t turn on the electricity. Just lie down and open your legs. She obeyed that.

    Now, according to a zionist deception: she is behind the evil ‘project of the century’ and NOT a zionist Jewish mafia Kushner, so to frame others for the JEWISH MAFIA CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY.
    They are accusing Ivanka for jewish deception, someone who even Stephen Bannon called her DUMB.

    This has nothing to do with a dumb person who could not even save her own identity, rather it is the work of the Jewish mafia using ignorant ‘president’ and his daughter to achieve their vicious goal , where is going to be defeated.

    The criminal tribe has lied to YOU for centuries. The following is one example:

    [Man who claimed to have escaped Auschwitz admits he lied for years
    Joseph Hirt said he fabricated story of being sent to camp and meeting Nazi doctor Josef Mengele to ‘keep memories alive’ about history of the Holocaust
    A Pennsylvania man who claimed for years to have escaped from Auschwitz, met track and field star Jesse Owens and Nazi doctor Josef Mengele, confessed on Friday that he had fabricated the entire story.
    “I am writing today to apologize publicly for harm caused to anyone because of my inserting myself into the descriptions of life in Auschwitz,” Joseph Hirt, 86, wrote in a letter sent to his local paper, LNP, this week. “I was not a prisoner there. I did not intend to lessen or overshadow the events which truly happened there by falsely claiming to have been personally involved.”
    “I was wrong. I ask forgiveness,” he added. “I determined at that moment to do everything in my power to prevent the loss of the truth about wartime life (and death) at Auschwitz.”]

  37. Brilliant article, Ilana. I love the term Abu Ivanka al Amriki. If that isn’t derisive, I don’t know what is. Trump has already turned off a part of his base in regard that Jared and Ivanka still having too much to say in the administration. The sooner he gets rid of them (don’t hold your breath), the better off the nation will be. The only pressure I can see Trump bending to in regard to Bimbo & Boy Bimbo is that of the military – one of the few institutions that he respects. Since Obama cleared the military of a lot of its good men, leaving it with career-minded slimeballs, one wonders who in the military would have to cojonees to put that kind of pressure on Trump? If Ivanka thinks having her eye on the presidency is realistic, she better think twice. I’d ALMOST contemplate voting for Ocasio-Cortez for a micro-second before I’d go that route. Unfortunately, the Palestinians are disposable. They have nothing to offer anyone in realpolitik. Muslims and Arabs will make all kinds of noise, but not seriously risk a thread of their wives’ burkhas. Only human compassion motivates activism on behalf of the Palestinians. Yes, Bibi will have Jared & Ivanka’s heads spinning and dazed by the time their plane lands back in the US. Ah well, such is realpolitik.

    Perhaps they plan on establishing an eruv, a magic wire to transform the globe into their “home.” Also, the problem is not limited to Friday because she is always “…a sack full of excrement brimming with menstrual filth at its opening…” (Shabbat 152) and during her menstruation she has the status of a Niddah, so the following are forbidden:


    1.frivolous or lightheaded conduct such as excessive laughter or joking.
    2. sports or games,
    3. The use of cosmetics during the Niddah status is prohibited, with the loophole being that if she needs cosmetics to keep her from appearing hideous in her husband’s eyes, a moderate amount may be applied.
    4. A husband may not touch his wife when she is a Niddah; not even his small finger may touch her. A woman may not touch her husband when she is a Niddah, not even her small finger may touch him.
    5. It is prohibited to touch her even through clothing or outer garments. Therefore the clothing she is wearing cannot be touched.
    6. Handing an object into her hands, or receiving it from her is prohibited, even if the object is a long one.
    7. If the kallah (bride) at her own wedding is Niddah, then the chasan (groom) may only place the ring on his future wife’s finger it he can do so without touching her fingers. It is prohibited to pass a child from a father’s hands to the mother’s hands while the mother is Niddah.
    8. The husband may not kiss a child who is in the mother’s arms, nor may the mother kiss a child in her husband’s arms.
    9. The husband may not place an object into his wife’s pocket or handbag, shopping bag or anything she is carrying. Similarly he may not remove anything from the pockets, purses, or bags.
    10. Throwing an object in the husband’s hand to his wife’s lap, or throwing an object from the wife’s lap to her husband’s hand, is prohibited. Certain poskim hold that the husband or the wife is permitted to throw an object upward and the other may catch it as it falls (as long as this is not done for enjoyment)
    11. When a woman who is a Niddah is invited to serve as the kvatter (the person designated to carry the infant boy to the circumcision), she must decline the offer.
    12. Picking up a lightweight object is prohibited to the husband if his wife is touching it.
    13. It is not permissible for a husband to sit on his wife’s bed when she is a Niddah, even if she is not present.
    14. The husband should refrain from blowing off a feather or dust off his wife’s garments. Fanning her or blowing on her (e.g., in hot weather) is prohibited. It is similarly prohibited for her to do these things for her husband.
    15. One may not light a candle or a cigarette from a lit candle from a match that his wife is holding, nor may he warm himself from its heat.
    16. It is permissible for a wife to hold the Havdallah candle for her husband, even though he will benefit from its light. However, since handing or receiving is prohibited, he may not hand the candle to her before Havdallah nor may he receive it from her after Havdallah, to extinguish it.
    17. Eating or drinking together at the same table is prohibited.
    18. Eating or drinking together at the same table may be allowed if there is a visible obstruction present.
    19. An object that is usually not on the table, such as a vase or candlestick, may be utilized as a divider when eating or drinking together at the same table.
    20. A husband and wife may not eat from the same plate.
    21. This applies only when the food is eaten immediately upon removal from the plate. However where a plate of food is placed on the table, it is permissible for both of them to remove food from the plate and place it onto their individual plates and then eat it from their own plates.
    22. Not all types of food are included in the prohibition. Only those foods that only a husband and wife would consume from the same dish (for example, soup from the same bowel) are forbidden. Those foods that two strangers would share from the same communal bowl (popcorn etc.) are permissible.
    23. The husband may not drink from a beverage in a glass that his wife was drinking from, with the following exceptions: if a child drank from the glass or cup after his wife drank from it; if the contents of the glass or cup was transferred to another cup, glass or bottle; if she drank from a glass or cup and then left the room, the husband may drink the beverage remaining in her cup.
    24. Laying together in the same bed is prohibited, no matter how big or wide the bed.
    25. Sleeping in separate beds that touch each other is forbidden. There must be sufficient distance between the separate beds so that the husband cannot roll from his bed to hers, one cubit (approx 26 inches) minimum.
    26. A woman who is Niddah may not visit a Judaic cemetery.

    Jews had made a mess of Europe until WWII because they were always treated as the outsiders, not allowed to own land, etc., so they stuck together as a group for survival and to thrive. But things are different now, esp. in the US, they are outsiders no more. Why do Jews continue to stick together as a tribe, still refusing to assimilate, wanting the US to go to more wars on behalf of Israel, and encouraging open borders and multiculturalism so that they are not the only out group against a white majority. Why won’t they assimilate?

    I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s all because of Israel. Israel needs for the diaspora to stay loyal to the tribe to ensure it’s survival. That’s why they are going out of their way to build the holocaust museum, because Judaism is losing its appeal as more Jews become secular, they need to keep them loyal to the tribe on a new religion: Holocaustianity.

    As long as there is an Israel, Jews will never assimilate, and the world will always be in chaos. For the world to achieve peace, Israel Must DIE.

    “Though it will be claimed by the usual public relations hacks that Prof. Kedar’s monstrous rape/deterrent observation is ‘condemned by the Jewish tradition’ (citing, for example, Babylonian Talmud, Kiddushin 22), there are rabbinic escape clauses which justify rape of non-Judaic women.

    “First, the rape target must be classified as a zonah (prostitute) or a nokri (hostile alien). The supreme Ashkenazic halachic authority, Rabbi Moses Maimonides, rules that a Judaic soldier may rape this type of female POW (yefas to’ar) when he is not actively fighting a battle (cf. Hilchos Melachim 8:3). For more on this line of thought consult Judaism Discovered, p. 904. …

    “Eyal Karim (also spelled ‘Qarim’), the Israeli military’s chief rabbi, agrees: ‘Just so, war removes some of the prohibitions on sexual relations (gilui arayot), and even though fraternizing with a gentile woman is a very serious matter, it was permitted during wartime (under the specific terms) out of understanding for the hardship endured by the warriors. And since the success of the whole at war is our goal, the Torah permitted the individual to satisfy the evil urge (yetzer ha’ra), under the conditions mentioned, for the purpose of the success of the whole.’ Cf.

    Washington’s Mighty Warriors: Draft Dodgers and Scoundrels
    May 30, 2019

    The White House is contriving a phony war supportive of no conceivable national interest that is based on lies and might even include a “false flag” operation that will condemn Iran for something it did not do.

    Anyone in the loop knows that the two-state solution has been dead for decades.That the powers-that-be continue to pursue this farce at a continuing cost in blood and treasure is indicative of how indolent and ignorant the masses in the U.S. and Europe are.

    From the 8min. mark, when Tulsi says that she’ll put the interests of the American people “ahead of the interests of foreign countries,” that can only mean one thing: ISRAEL is the only country whose interests have been put ahead of Americans’ by US Presidents. Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton …. all favored Israel over Americans.

    Elect TULSI = end Israel undue influence

    Tulsi Gabbard to Americans: War with Iran would be devastating

  98. @RobinG

    Agree, but if Tulsi get anywhere close , look for the plane she is on to go down, or maybe she would be suicided , but don’t think for a minute she will get anywhere close to being nominated, they have to put Israel first over the zio/US, it is just a fact of life.

    That would be a first – but I am in if she makes it that far without selling her soul to zio financiers.

    Watch the typos!!!

    We may have to write her in, if she’s not on the ballot in all 50 states [and DC] when the Dems force us to elect her as an Independent.


    There are now Republicans- Greens- Libertarians- Veterans- and Muslims for Tulsi.
    (Self-identified.) This can happen.

    The ZUSA government of moral and intellectual pigmies: “Two Contrasting Commencement Addresses a Half Century Apart” by Paul Craig Roberts

    On June 1, 2019, American vice president Mike Pence gave the commencement address at West Point. He told the graduates that it was a certainty that they will “be on a battlefield for America” and “will move to the sound of guns.”

    Pence did not say for whose agenda they would be fighting, whether it would be the oil companies’ agenda, or Israel’s, or the New York Banks’, or for the neoconservative ideology of US world hegemony, or for the CIA’s drug business. Indeed, the West Point graduates will die without ever knowing for whose interest they are fighting. …

    On June 10, 1963, 56 years ago, a much greater man than Pence, President John F. Kennedy, gave the commencement address at American University in Washington, D.C. His speech stunned the military/security complex. It revealed a president who was committed to establishing a peaceful relationship with the Soviet Union. This would be a peace that would threaten their budget, power, and importance. … Five months later President Kennedy was murdered by the CIA and Joint Chiefs of Staff in Dallas Texas. Their deed was blamed on Oswall, who was promptly shot dead inside the Dallas jail by a private citizen given admittance for that purpose.


    What kind of peace do I mean? What kind of peace do we seek? Not a Pax Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of war. Not the peace of the grave or the security of the slave. I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living, the kind that enables men and nations to grow and to hope and to build a better life for their children–not merely peace for Americans but peace for all men and women–not merely peace in our time but peace for all time.

    Paul Craig Roberts:

    When John Kennedy was president, America was a proud country. Today it is a shameful place in freefall, a grave danger to its own citizens and to the rest of the world.

    The Jewish State does not even try to hide its cooperation with fanatical Islamists:

    Damascus, which views the raids as a blatant violation of its sovereignty, repeatedly accused Israel of helping and boosting the morale of the remaining terrorists in Syria. Sunday’s raid too corresponded with successive terrorist attacks in the northern suburbs of Hama and Idlib…”

    What a tribe! While whining and squealing about “victimhood” and “antisemitism,” the Jewish State has been cooperating with and arming both the Islamic terrorists and Ukrainian banderists (neo-Nazis).

    The world has become desensitized to the plight of the Palestinians.

    Long overdue. The world has become desensitized to the plight of muslims in general. Even muslims have become desensitized to the plight of other muslims.

    The Buddhist Burmese have ethnically cleansed the Muslim Bengalese and no one cares, the Commie Chinese have put their male Muslim Turk citizens in concentration camps and even their fellow turks in Central Asia don’t give a damn. Muslim children are starving to death in Yemen, abandoned by the Ummah. Etc

    In every major region of the world muslims are facing the wrath of the natives: Europe, India, China, America.

    When Trump moved the embassy to Jerusalem what happened? Crickets. This might be a good time to bulldoze that mosque in Jerusalem….
