Sea of Galilee

Back in September I pointed out that the objectively ideal place to shelter Syrian refugees was a peaceful, relatively underpopulated region with a lovely climate that’s so conveniently close to home that practically every country in the world still considers it legally part of Syria.

And now there’s more good news: the local economy should be looking up as the Genie Oil and Gas company recently announced that it had discovered oil in the Golan Heights.

Granted, there are some tricky issues involving the Golan Heights, which Israel conquered from Syria in 1967 and announced it had annexed in 1981.

But Genie Oil and Gas has assembled a Strategic Advisory Board to help it deal with them. From Genie’s corporate website:

Strategic Advisory Board

The Strategic Advisory Board of Genie Oil and Gas advises management on strategic, financial, operational and public policy matters.

Michael Steinhardt (SAB Chairman)
Noted Wall Street investor and Principal Manager, Steinhardt Management LLC. Founder Steinhardt, Fine, Berkowitz & Co., and noted philanthropist.

Richard Cheney
46th Vice President of the United States. Vice President Cheney also served as President and CEO of Halliburton Company and U.S. Secretary of Defense from 1989 to 1993.

Marry [sic] Landrieu
United States Senator from Louisiana from 1996 to 2014. Senator Landrieu served as chair of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. In her capacity as chair, she sponsored and passed the U.S.-Israel Energy Cooperation Bill. The bill fosters partnerships focused on developing resources such as natural gas and alternative fuels, on the academic, business and governmental levels.

Rupert Murdoch
Founder and Executive Chairman of News Corporation, one of the world’s largest diversified media companies. News Corporation’s holdings include Fox Entertainment, Dow Jones and Company, the New York Post, HarperCollins and significant media assets on six continents.

Bill Richardson
Governor of New Mexico from 2003 to 2011. Mr. Richardson has served asU.S. Ambassador to the United Nations (1997-1998), Energy Secretary in the Clinton administration (1998-2001), Chairman of the 2004 Democratic National Convention, and as Chairman of the Democratic Governors Association.

Jacob Rothschild, OM, GBE
Chairman of the J. Rothschild group of companies and of RIT Capital Partners plc. Chairman of Five Arrows Limited. Lord Rothschold is a noted philanthropist and Chairman of the Rothschild Foundation.

Dr. Lawrence Summers
Charles W. Eliot University Professor and President Emeritus at Harvard University. Dr. Summers served as the 71st Secretary of the Treasury under President Clinton and as Director of the National Economic Council for President Obama.

R. James Woolsey
Director of Central Intelligence from 1993 to 1995 and as Under Secretary of the Navy from 1977 to 1979. Mr. Woolsey is co-founder of the United States Energy Security Council and is Chairman of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

So with that caliber of Strategic Advice, I’m sure the Syrian refugees will be moving in and getting high paid drilling jobs in no time. After all, as we all know, Syrian refugees are good for the economy.

By the way, I’m actually not making up this list even though it sounds like some conspiracy theorist’s fantasy. Notice that most of these folks are somewhat at loose ends, although Rupert, in his mid 80s must be still an extremely busy man. But he and Lord Rothschild jointly own 5.5% of Genie:

Claude Pupkin, CEO of Genie Oil and Gas, commented, “Genie’s success will ultimately depend, in part, on access to the expertise of the oil and gas industry and to the financial markets. Lord Rothschild and Rupert Murdoch are extremely well regarded by and connected to leaders in these sectors. Their guidance and participation will prove invaluable.”

Rupert Murdoch and Claude Pupkin, where have I heard those names before?

  1. That economist article implying that Israel and this company would benefit from the Golan Heights being made officially an Israeli territory amid the chaos is interesting. It makes you wonder, Who was Trump implying when he was on Morning Joe? Israel? Rupert Murdoch?

    Donald Trump

    Right now things are going on right now that you don’t know about, that I don’t know about, that nobody . . . right now, there are things going on . . . that you have so-called people that you think are on our side and they’re not reporting it, they’re not talking about it, and, in some cases, they’re involved with it.

    Look, I’ll give you an example. Some of our so-called “allies,” that we work with and we protect and we protect them militarily, they’re sending massive amounts of money to ISIS and al-Qaeda and to others.

    Joe Scarborough
    So who are we talking about there?

    Donald Trump
    You know who it is. What do I have to bring it up for? You know who it is.

    Joe Scarborough

    Donald Trump
    Joe, other countries are giving massive amounts of money. People from other countries are giving massive amounts of money . . .

    Of course, they’re doing it. Everyone knows that.

    Joe Scarborough
    Ok. Any other countries?

    He must have been talking about other Gulf countries where he does business. Here's why:

    1) "We protect them militarily". The US doesn't actually protect Israel militarily, but it does have boots on the ground in the Gulf.

    2) He said "you know who it is" to a mainstream news host. If it was Israel then, no, Joe Scarborough would not have known "who it is".

    3) "Sending massive amounts of money". Israel doesn't have massive amounts of money to send. Arab oil shiekhs do. The usual conspiracy theory is that Israel lends "support" and expertise, not money.

    @duderino

    The Golan is an official part of Israel and has been since 1981. International recognition is irrelevant.

    Another illustration of the problems which stem from dumping the old American policy of recognizing the de facto government and de facto borders in all cases in peacetime, since they are the ones who are actually governing and the borders that actually matter.

    American maps in 1941 recognized Europe the way it actually was - we didn't pretend Poland and Austria still existed, Slovakia was not independent, that North Transylvania was still part of Romania, or that France had not signed a treaty giving Germany Alsace-Lorraine again.

    That is the refreshing thing about being neutral. You don't have to take sides and can just work with the facts on the ground while expressing sympathy all around to everyone's point of view.

  2. practically every country in the world still considers it legally part of Syria.

    “practically every country in the world” can go bite me.

    If Israel had caved Golan would be yet another ISIS-controlled burned out ruin.

  3. Genie is run by Howard Jonas, who got his start by selling mail order Bonzai trees out of his Harvard dorm room. Then he locked up the east coast hotel brochure distribution market, which is a very lucrative business. After that he started disrupting the long distance market by turning a long distance call into a call back (ie a call to Haiti turns into a call from Haiti to the US, which is much cheaper). Then he sold a flimsy VOIP technology to ATT for $1B. He is difficult to work with. According to his company 10Ks, his company is in litigation with pretty much every business partner it’s ever worked with. But he is very good at what he does. On a Roll, his biography, is a good read, available for free in pdf, I think.

    My take is that center-right people are less passionate (they're moderate, after all) and tend not to get on comment boards and argue. If they do, being moderate, they're more likely to wait until an establishment candidate pops out and support him rather than get passionate about a particular guy. It's guys who have a clearly defined ideological difference from the field (remember Ron Paul?) who get the diehard supporters.

    National Review, as suggested, is a good place to get the establishment-right view if you want it.

    The UN spends a considerable portion of its energy condemning Israel, so you can't say Israel "gets away with it". It's more like, Israel is the only white country (that borders the 3rd world) which has the balls to stand up for itself. We could all stop the invasion, if we only wanted to.

    “If Israel had caved Golan would be yet another ISIS-controlled burned out ruin.”

    Syria is a mess like Libya because of Western foreign policy of invade and intervention, much of which emanated from Israel.

    That is not even remotely true. Assad Sr, leveled an entire city, Hama, in order to snuff out a revolt in the late 1980s. Syria has always been a mess, because it is DIVERSE. It is run by Alawites, a Shia offshoot many Muslims don't consider Muslim, over a seething mass of Sunni fundamentalists. It has had erratic lurches in policy (remember the UAR, the United Arab Republic of Syria and Egypt?) without the oil money to smooth things over in Saudi Arabia or the Army to take over as in Egypt and rule a mass of low IQ Muslims who only know one thing: jihad.

    Bush's response in Iraq was merely the logical and inevitable outcome of US policy of stability to protect the SAUDIs (Israel is merely a byproduct) in a chaotic and fragmented and DIVERSE area where the path to power is JIHAD. Now under Obama we get the worst of everything -- half hearted intervention sure to fail, with no real influence, while we are tied to events there.

    As for Israel it has fairly fluid arrangements with both the Assad and ISIS regimes. Its objective is peace on its borders (for now), and definitely avoiding a stream of huge amounts of refugees there. Its rational interest therefore is enough fighting to prevent say, 10 million refugees demanding entry on the Golan, while not too much that rockets land in Northern Israel.

    The FT did a series on how ISIS funds itself. It gets most of its money from local taxes, and oil sales in which the Assad regime collaborates. About 30% or so comes from the Gulf, principally Qatar (where Trump has many business interests) and less so the Saudis. TURKEY is the nation providing considerable military assistance, including rumored troops in civilian clothing. Of course Erdogan has picked fights with Israel and Russia, as he's run out of bribe money to his construction cronies as he's poured concrete over everything he could by now.

    Personally I'd hand over the Eastern Med to the Russians. Let Putin send his people to die over there, but I'd also protect our oil market and create a market price internally of $60 a barrel min to preserve fracking and avoid Saudi $120 a barrel oil with a monopoly.

  25. Interesting Comment from another Webpage:

    I couldn’t figure out why other Arab countries (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Oman, etc.) weren’t taking in refugees, so I started digging. Hijrah is jihad by emigration. It means moving to a new land in order to bring Islam there and is considered in Islam to be a holy and revered action.

    “And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many locations and abundance, and whoever leaves his home as an emigrant to Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him, his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah.” (4:100)

    So if a Muslim dies in the process, that’s essentially the same as being a suicide bomber, his reward is automatic.

    This explains the great eagerness to undertake such a perilous journey. Muhammad and his followers emigrated from Mecca to Yathrib/Medina in 622 CE. It was there that he became a military leader. This is where all the commands to commit violence against unbelievers originate from. It’s important to note that the Islamic calendar marks this as the beginning of Islam.

    This current massive hijrah was announced last January although few paid the announcement much attention. A supporter (or member) of ISIS uploaded a document in Arabic that urged Muslims to get to Libya for its proximity to southern Europe and for the important tactical value of its illegal immigration circuits to facilitate infiltration Europe In February, transcripts of telephone intercepts published in Italy said ISIS was threatening to send 500,000 migrants as a “psychological weapon” against Europe.

    The Italian Minister for the Interior, Angelino Alfano, said at the time, “If the militias of the Caliphate advance faster than the decisions of the international community how can we put out the fire in Libya and stem the migration flows? We are at risk of an exodus without precedent.”

    Also in February, the Turkish intelligence service warned police that up to 3,000 trained jihadists were seeking to cross into Turkey from Syria and Iraq and then travel through Bulgaria and Hungary into western Europe. From Syria, to Hungary, then into the rest of Europe.

    Sound familiar? In May, a Libyan government adviser warned that Islamic State operatives were being “smuggled to Europe in migrant boats.” ISIS is profiting from the human trafficking trade, forcing boat owners to hand over their profits or be killed. Some ISIS operatives are already sheltered in safe houses in the south of the Europe. Groups of men, 17 to 25, from Palestine and Syria, cross into Bulgaria and from there move into the rest of the EU. A former Al Qaeda double agent told the BBC that he knew of two Egyptian brothers who reached Italy from Libya, accompanied by men who were “deeply religious and fluent in Italian and French.”

    Go watch the videos of those “refugees” again. How many of the “refugees” are 17-25 year old men? If that doesn’t convince you, we already know terrorists are coming through with the waves of refugees: a week ago five men were arrested attempting to cross the Bulgarian border all carrying videos of beheadings and other IS material

    The Golan is an official part of Israel and has been since 1981. International recognition is irrelevant.

    Another illustration of the problems which stem from dumping the old American policy of recognizing the de facto government and de facto borders in all cases in peacetime, since they are the ones who are actually governing and the borders that actually matter.

    American maps in 1941 recognized Europe the way it actually was – we didn’t pretend Poland and Austria still existed, Slovakia was not independent, that North Transylvania was still part of Romania, or that France had not signed a treaty giving Germany Alsace-Lorraine again.

    That is the refreshing thing about being neutral. You don’t have to take sides and can just work with the facts on the ground while expressing sympathy all around to everyone’s point of view.

    I am copying a google translated article, extremely interesting. It is from the Israeli right wing website Mida. A left wing Jewish lesbian woman finds out what it is like to live in south Tel Aviv which is flooded by illegal immigrants/refugees.

    —-

    South Tel Aviv (Shapira) I arrived 18 years ago, straight from the heart of the city, because we wanted our apartment, with elevator and parking, with living space, with no debt, and most importantly, we wanted it all without leaving Tel Aviv. Petit bourgeois dream of Tel Aviv.

    Falling in love with the neighborhood might not be immediate but it was pretty quick, and got a big boost when our son was born. Public park, community center, kindergarten, and from there a short way to to active involvement in the community and party downtown and adjacent to Central Station.

    As a European, white, north, lesbian, feminist and leftist, have great potential to be a classic genetrification case. Looking at veteran residents from the top, a position of power and arrogance, and dictate the beautiful world view, proper and just. Fortunately, I had the wisdom to shut up and listen. And of silence and listening were also humility and understanding.

    Be a resident of south Tel Aviv, or in our words the south, it is to live with a constant sense of discrimination and oppression. It requires us to be conscious the everybody is plotting about your little piece of heaven. To be a social activist in South Tel Aviv it to go to war against everyone, against the authorities and against public opinion against the media and against the leftist organizations, against the right roses neighborhoods and against their alienation from the Left.

    For years, our activities focused on working with the municipality: infrastructure, education, welfare, juvenile budgets a little longer, a little longer active seniors, street renovations, adding light poles, trees, dog park, master plan, a spring festival.

    For years we lived in peace with the various communities gathered for the content, Romanians, Chinese, Thais, Filipinos, Nigerians, Ganaim, Colombian, Congolese. Environment created a diverse, interesting, lively and well, even when the challenges and hardships were great.

    For years we have striven to get out of distress, bring to the neighborhood young artists, promote the culture, to change the image. Here and there we managed, and Overall direction was positive. We had energies of construction, of progress, of hope.

    When the neighborhood was transformed from

    Then came the tsunami.

    It took us a while to absorb what’s going on south Tel Aviv, that things happen gradually and we are used to foreigners on our streets. But also a gradual process comes at the end of consciousness. One day I was struck by the recognition: the neighborhood has changed its face.

    What made me into a coma? A collection of observations and experiences. Owners of homes evacuated students in favor of Mishkenot slaves. Tiny grocery stores converted and Hamar. Sewers collapsed and flooded roads. Good friends gave up and left. People suddenly began to withdraw their homes. Public gardens that have changed their purpose. Undefined fear fear became clear. Women who have lost their freedom of movement. The sound of children playing disappeared from the streets.

    One day I realized: My neighborhood under siege.

    In routine Shapira had friends Africans. I was invited to weddings and baptisms. I entertained neighbors at home. Even I hid them on the roof of the immigration police raids. I like cosmopolitanism, multiculturalism, the street melodious mixture of languages, the costumes, the festivities of Saturday, the market Neve Sha’anan. I also loved my liberal worldview, belonging to the left “enlightened”, the love of all human beings.

    But slowly arose from the beliefs of cracks, and the cracks have become crevasses and fissures of the depths.

    When the crisis came, I discovered that the left, old home, refuses to recognize the complex reality created in south Tel Aviv. I found a party whose leaders seized and express one-sided positions. I discovered the various rights organizations bother the rights of infiltrators and asylum seekers, but mocking the rights of the residents adjacent to Central Station. I discovered that any attempt by residents of neighborhoods cry out against abandoning met with a wall of hostility and accusations of racism and fascism. I discovered the work of the Association of Organizations hurt us systematically and deliberately courts, the Supreme Court, the media and public opinion.

    I discovered that this is a war, and I, for the first time, on the other side. His former friends actually fighting me.

    Left disappointed

    For a while I lived dissonance difficult. The ideological world has fallen apart, literally. I had to re-examine all the faith, once I had taken for granted. I fought with my friends. I hung up social contacts. I lost a lot of things that defined me socially and identity.

    At the same time I was swept into the struggle and acquired new members. Believe me, it was not easy. For their part, senior residents were wary at first, and my part I felt that perhaps I have no right to represent them. I had to prove – to them and to myself – that I am committed to them, and they had to realize that my voice expresses them.

    People ask me what it means to be a mother in the area around Central Station. My child is an adolescent age 15.5. He has friends all over the city. He returns home after nine in the evening, sometimes after ten and eleven. Once it was dark, I go into the unrest that is increasing. I’m not a Polish mother. I just know what’s going on outside these hours.

    From time to time I nag him Bootsaf. When are you coming back? What bus? Walk from the station? I’ll wait for you? No way you’re going down alone on Mount Zion and on foot. We need to get out, maybe sleep in a friend. Child relaxing. Then, the moment of truth, after that he would return alone and there is no problem, Telephone. Maybe you collect me? I do not like.

    Six months ago he asked me to buy pepper spray, so be it. He is careful to remind me to take it every time I go out in the evening activities. My son feels he needs to keep me.

    I still have luck. The girls of my friends do not go out alone in the house. My girlfriends do not come (not mothers Authority). Parents of twenty plus collect the children from the central station. Owners gather the women. Living in a war zone. Subs not complain about her already. And really, I do not know what is normal and what is not. What is unusual and what is not.

    Ticking bomb

    Are you too defecate in the driveway? Are you too controls the smell of urine? Are you too immigrants garbage cans overflowing and spilling gutters road? Are you too light barbecues in the park Friday night and Saturday afternoon? Are you too blaring music from loudspeakers in prayer on Saturday morning? Are you too drunk rotating groups of men at all hours of the night? Would you sit a minute or two the vehicle before you leave it waited for your return home at night?

    Are you too women are not allowed to go out alone to walk or run in the dark? Are you too have no holiday atmosphere, no Sabbath? Are you too afraid to be mothers who take the children to the park? Is all well in your niche and each was converted warehouse apartment-residence? Do you too see how each store was converted to a tavern? Did you feel not welcome and strangers in your neighborhood?

    In the end, no wonder that whoever can run away from here. But there are many who will not run away and will not be deported. Many who fight for Hbitoal neighborhood. Fighting against the government, against the city, against the greedy, greedy, against aid organizations and leftist parties, particularly against the indifference of the rest of the Israelis, who prefer to close their eyes and thank God it never happens to them.

    So should you be indifference, that it will also come to you.

It has had erratic lurches in policy (remember the UAR, the United Arab Republic of Syria and Egypt?) without the oil money to smooth things over in Saudi Arabia or the Army to take over as in Egypt and rule a mass of low IQ Muslims who only know one thing: jihad.

    Bush’s response in Iraq was merely the logical and inevitable outcome of US policy of stability to protect the SAUDIs (Israel is merely a byproduct) in a chaotic and fragmented and DIVERSE area where the path to power is JIHAD. Now under Obama we get the worst of everything — half hearted intervention sure to fail, with no real influence, while we are tied to events there.

    As for Israel it has fairly fluid arrangements with both the Assad and ISIS regimes. Its objective is peace on its borders (for now), and definitely avoiding a stream of huge amounts of refugees there. Its rational interest therefore is enough fighting to prevent say, 10 million refugees demanding entry on the Golan, while not too much that rockets land in Northern Israel.

    The FT did a series on how ISIS funds itself. It gets most of its money from local taxes, and oil sales in which the Assad regime collaborates. About 30% or so comes from the Gulf, principally Qatar (where Trump has many business interests) and less so the Saudis. TURKEY is the nation providing considerable military assistance, including rumored troops in civilian clothing. Of course Erdogan has picked fights with Israel and Russia, as he’s run out of bribe money to his construction cronies as he’s poured concrete over everything he could by now.

    Personally I’d hand over the Eastern Med to the Russians. Let Putin send his people to die over there, but I’d also protect our oil market and create a market price internally of $60 a barrel min to preserve fracking and avoid Saudi $120 a barrel oil with a monopoly.

    Better we should set a minimum price on gasoline in the $4 range, and let people burn propane or compressed/liquified natural gas in their cars and build a thorium gas cooled reactor design for electric power. Then tell the Saudis to eat their oil.

    My take is that center-right people are less passionate (they’re moderate, after all) and tend not to get on comment boards and argue. If they do, being moderate, they’re more likely to wait until an establishment candidate pops out and support him rather than get passionate about a particular guy. It’s guys who have a clearly defined ideological difference from the field (remember Ron Paul?) who get the diehard supporters.

    National Review, as suggested, is a good place to get the establishment-right view if you want it.

    There is a conspiracy theory popular among right wing internet bloggers that Israel is immune to third world immigration. It is not true. Tel aviv is full with African immigrants. The government does everything it can to send them back, but the liberal supreme court overrules its hardline laws.
    I am copying a google translated article, extremely interesting. It is from the Israeli right wing website Mida. A left wing Jewish lesbian woman finds out what it is like to live in south Tel Aviv which is flooded by illegal immigrants/refugees.

    ----

    South Tel Aviv (Shapira) I arrived 18 years ago, straight from the heart of the city, because we wanted our apartment, with elevator and parking, with living space, with no debt, and most importantly, we wanted it all without leaving Tel Aviv. Petit bourgeois dream of Tel Aviv.

    Falling in love with the neighborhood might not be immediate but it was pretty quick, and got a big boost when our son was born. Public park, community center, kindergarten, and from there a short way to to active involvement in the community and party downtown and adjacent to Central Station.

    As a European, white, north, lesbian, feminist and leftist, have great potential to be a classic genetrification case. Looking at veteran residents from the top, a position of power and arrogance, and dictate the beautiful world view, proper and just. Fortunately, I had the wisdom to shut up and listen. And of silence and listening were also humility and understanding.

    Be a resident of south Tel Aviv, or in our words the south, it is to live with a constant sense of discrimination and oppression. It requires us to be conscious the everybody is plotting about your little piece of heaven. To be a social activist in South Tel Aviv it to go to war against everyone, against the authorities and against public opinion against the media and against the leftist organizations, against the right roses neighborhoods and against their alienation from the Left.

    For years, our activities focused on working with the municipality: infrastructure, education, welfare, juvenile budgets a little longer, a little longer active seniors, street renovations, adding light poles, trees, dog park, master plan, a spring festival.

    For years we lived in peace with the various communities gathered for the content, Romanians, Chinese, Thais, Filipinos, Nigerians, Ganaim, Colombian, Congolese. Environment created a diverse, interesting, lively and well, even when the challenges and hardships were great.

    For years we have striven to get out of distress, bring to the neighborhood young artists, promote the culture, to change the image. Here and there we managed, and Overall direction was positive. We had energies of construction, of progress, of hope.

    When the neighborhood was transformed from

    Then came the tsunami.

    It took us a while to absorb what's going on south Tel Aviv, that things happen gradually and we are used to foreigners on our streets. But also a gradual process comes at the end of consciousness. One day I was struck by the recognition: the neighborhood has changed its face.

    What made me into a coma? A collection of observations and experiences. Owners of homes evacuated students in favor of Mishkenot slaves. Tiny grocery stores converted and Hamar. Sewers collapsed and flooded roads. Good friends gave up and left. People suddenly began to withdraw their homes. Public gardens that have changed their purpose. Undefined fear fear became clear. Women who have lost their freedom of movement. The sound of children playing disappeared from the streets.

    One day I realized: My neighborhood under siege.

    In routine Shapira had friends Africans. I was invited to weddings and baptisms. I entertained neighbors at home. Even I hid them on the roof of the immigration police raids. I like cosmopolitanism, multiculturalism, the street melodious mixture of languages, the costumes, the festivities of Saturday, the market Neve Sha'anan. I also loved my liberal worldview, belonging to the left "enlightened", the love of all human beings.

    But slowly arose from the beliefs of cracks, and the cracks have become crevasses and fissures of the depths.

    When the crisis came, I discovered that the left, old home, refuses to recognize the complex reality created in south Tel Aviv. I found a party whose leaders seized and express one-sided positions. I discovered the various rights organizations bother the rights of infiltrators and asylum seekers, but mocking the rights of the residents adjacent to Central Station. I discovered that any attempt by residents of neighborhoods cry out against abandoning met with a wall of hostility and accusations of racism and fascism. I discovered the work of the Association of Organizations hurt us systematically and deliberately courts, the Supreme Court, the media and public opinion.

    I discovered that this is a war, and I, for the first time, on the other side. His former friends actually fighting me.

    Left disappointed

    For a while I lived dissonance difficult. The ideological world has fallen apart, literally. I had to re-examine all the faith, once I had taken for granted. I fought with my friends. I hung up social contacts. I lost a lot of things that defined me socially and identity.

    At the same time I was swept into the struggle and acquired new members. Believe me, it was not easy. For their part, senior residents were wary at first, and my part I felt that perhaps I have no right to represent them. I had to prove - to them and to myself - that I am committed to them, and they had to realize that my voice expresses them.

    People ask me what it means to be a mother in the area around Central Station. My child is an adolescent age 15.5. He has friends all over the city. He returns home after nine in the evening, sometimes after ten and eleven. Once it was dark, I go into the unrest that is increasing. I'm not a Polish mother. I just know what's going on outside these hours.

    From time to time I nag him Bootsaf. When are you coming back? What bus? Walk from the station? I'll wait for you? No way you're going down alone on Mount Zion and on foot. We need to get out, maybe sleep in a friend. Child relaxing. Then, the moment of truth, after that he would return alone and there is no problem, Telephone. Maybe you collect me? I do not like.

    Six months ago he asked me to buy pepper spray, so be it. He is careful to remind me to take it every time I go out in the evening activities. My son feels he needs to keep me.

    I still have luck. The girls of my friends do not go out alone in the house. My girlfriends do not come (not mothers Authority). Parents of twenty plus collect the children from the central station. Owners gather the women. Living in a war zone. Subs not complain about her already. And really, I do not know what is normal and what is not. What is unusual and what is not.

    Ticking bomb

    Are you too defecate in the driveway? Are you too controls the smell of urine? Are you too immigrants garbage cans overflowing and spilling gutters road? Are you too light barbecues in the park Friday night and Saturday afternoon? Are you too blaring music from loudspeakers in prayer on Saturday morning? Are you too drunk rotating groups of men at all hours of the night? Would you sit a minute or two the vehicle before you leave it waited for your return home at night?

    Are you too women are not allowed to go out alone to walk or run in the dark? Are you too have no holiday atmosphere, no Sabbath? Are you too afraid to be mothers who take the children to the park? Is all well in your niche and each was converted warehouse apartment-residence? Do you too see how each store was converted to a tavern? Did you feel not welcome and strangers in your neighborhood?

    In the end, no wonder that whoever can run away from here. But there are many who will not run away and will not be deported. Many who fight for Hbitoal neighborhood. Fighting against the government, against the city, against the greedy, greedy, against aid organizations and leftist parties, particularly against the indifference of the rest of the Israelis, who prefer to close their eyes and thank God it never happens to them.

    So should you be indifference, that it will also come to you.

    Here are some American teens in Golan:

    Shouldn’t there already be a travel advisory against going to occupied territories right next to actual terrorist states (look for ISIS control maps on google).

    Or are the ‘American teens’ actually Israeli zionists that hold an American citizenship of convenience.

    Your data are off.

    Al-Nusra is at the border with Israel; not ISIS.

    Multiculturalism is a sham, says Angela Merkel

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel's refugee policy has attracted praise from all over the world. Time magazine and the Financial Times newspaper recently named her Person of the Year, and delegates applauded her for so long at her party's convention on Monday that she had to stop them.

    The speech that followed, however, may have surprised supporters of her policies: "Multiculturalism leads to parallel societies and therefore remains a ‘life lie,’ ” or a sham, she said, before adding that Germany may be reaching its limits in terms of accepting more refugees. "The challenge is immense," she said. "We want and we will reduce the number of refugees noticeably
     
    She's as fickle as a twist.

    Merkel knows her Ibsen? ‘Life lie’ comes from The Wild Duck.

    Because that's not the subject.

    Your disingenuous "I’d apologize... but" is slimy and repulsive.

    this is the link to the article

    It might not be isteve, but Mida is certainly on the right in Israeli politics.

    Thanks, great article. I like it how the author is proud to have helped illegals avoid police raids, back in the early days when there wasn’t yet too much “diversity”. Perhaps, as in America, the sweet spot for diversity comes in at about 10% but no more.

    Google Translate seems especially bad on Hebrew. Steve could roll that up together with golf and Jonathan Pollard, into an interesting conspiracy theory.

  65. Israel failed miserably at “genociding”.

    Gaza 1967: 200 thousand inhabitants.
    Today: One million and eight hundred thousand.

    East Jerusalem 1967: 67,000 inhabitants.

    Today: 300,000. Majority on Israeli welfare.

    Same thing with the US and blacks, but Jews still do a lot of the heavy lifting for the black grievance crowd. Turnabout’s fair play.
