Netanyahu: EU's policy towards Israel is 'crazy' - BBC News

From the link"The European Union is the only association of countries in the world that conditions the relations with Israel... on political conditions. The only ones. ... [China, India and Russia] don't care about the political issues."

Quote:
Netanyahu resents Europe because he views it as the last bastion of Palestinian resistance. With the Arab world in tatters and much of it siding with Israel against Iran anyway, with India and China pursuing their self-interests and abandoning their traditional Third World sympathies, and, most of all, with the White House firmly held by Muslim-bashers and Congress controlled by solid majorities of Israel-lovers, Europe is the last remaining pocket.
Netanyahu's bigheaded Euro-bashing in Budapest is Bannon 101 - Israel News - Haaretz.com

Even though the EU is sickeningly sycophantic pro-Israel, it's never enough for the likes of Netanyahoo. Anything less than total surrender is being antisemitic.

It's being reported that John McCain has a brain tumour. NYT saying cancer. I'm not at all fond of him, but I certainly wouldn't wish anything like this on him and hope he recovers.

The new security procedures at Haram al-Sharif violate agreements between Jordan and Israel, can't prevent a repeat of last Friday's attack and further fuel outrage.

I had a similar reaction. The idea that this law would survive a challenge on Constitutional grounds should be a no brainer, but with right wingers in control of the Supreme Court, that may not be the case.

To anyone who bitches about someone breaking protocol in regard to the so-called British "Royal Family", I have something to say.

GO FUCK YOURSELF!

Seriously, they're just like everyone else. The only reason they're considered special is because they came out of the right vagina when they were born. Their elevated status is an accident of birth. No more, no less. In fact, the "Royal Family" should fucking be abolished and their property seized as all they are is a drain on the taxpayer.
