The opportunity now upon us may be lost forever as the PLO comes back to win its zerosum game against Israel.

Since its inception in the?late 1970s, the Israeli peace movement has been based on one thing: hope.
Members of the peace movement hoped the PLO?s war with Israel could be resolved through compromise. Proponents of peace with the PLO hoped that Yasser Arafat and his terrorist minions weren?t truly committed to Israel?s destruction.

The two-state formula was based on the hope that Israel could reach an accommodation with the PLO. To wit, in exchange for parts of Judea and Samaria and Gaza (no one was talking about Jerusalem), Israeli peaceniks, who over time came to encompass all factions of the Left in Israel, hoped the PLO would bury the hatchet, build a state, or federate with Jordan, and that would be that.

In 1992, the peace camp took over the government. Under the leadership of then prime minister Yitzhak Rabin and then foreign minister Shimon Peres, hope became the basis for Israel?s national security strategy. That strategy was followed by every Israeli government since. The basic idea was clear enough. In exchange for land and guns and legitimacy, Arafat and his goons would be domesticated.

The Blame game in America has reached peak stupidity



Who you gonna Blame for the Orlando Islamic terrorist attack?

Scapegoat number ONE: The?NRA

“The greatest threat to our homeland security today is the National Rifle Association, a front group for the firearms industry?that?derails gun-safety measures and perversely profits with each new mass shooting.”

Scapegoat number TWO:Christians

‘”The ISIS thing is a distraction,? Katz says, arguing that we should instead be ?looking at the long legacy of anti-gay violence in this country that has itself been stoked and promoted by the Christian right.? The central problem, he says, is not to be found in ?the Middle East,? but at home where the ?homophobia problem? exists.’

Scapegoat number THREE: Gun control

“Chris Murphy, D-Connecticut, who said blame for mass shootings lies with Congress for its failure to enact stricter gun control measures.”

Scapegoat number FOUR: The Republican Party

?This was an American killing Americans because they were queer and that has not been forcefully articulated,? Jonathan Katz said in a news release put out by the school. ?What we are trying to do here is camouflage the root of the problem, which is a long history of violent political rhetoric and homophobic policies by Republican officials and their conservative allies.”

Scapegoat number FIVE: Gays?

?The LGBT cause has blood on its hands. These deaths were caused by a paradoxical alliance between the left and Islam”

Learning this one historical fact about politics explains so much about the Left

Until recently I was ignorant about the origins of America’s two main political parties. I knew that the Democrats were similar to our Labour party and the Republicans were similar to our National party. They have other parties but, because they do not have MMP, the tail never gets the opportunity to wag the dog like it does here in New Zealand.

So, many of the Democrat’s policies confused me because, to my conservative and libertarian eyes, they were patronising and racist. It turns out that there is a very good historical reason for the way they treat their Black American supporters.

“Woman of the year” experiences Leftie intolerance

Caitlyn Jenner, who used to be Bruce Jenner, was named ?Woman of the Year”.?This shocked conservatives who thought that a biological woman should have won. Lefties, on the other hand, were in ecstasy because…diversity. Equal rights for transgenders etc. Now though, Bruce Caitlyn Jenner has confused the lefties who don’t know whether or not they can support him her anymore.

You know how lefties support Islam, despite its appalling treatment of women, children and gays, because it ticks the boxes of persecution, (Islamophobia) racism, (Islamophobia) and refugees/migrants? Well,?Bruce Caitlyn ticks a lot of boxes but he she has done something far worse than Islam has ever done. He?She has attacked Hillary Clinton, saying that she?doesn?t care about women.

Why Can’t National Conferences be like this? Ctd

The Republicans might not like sex before marriage or pooftas or immigrants much but apparently they don?t mind women getting their kit off to music. Tampa?s strip joints are gearing up for bumper profits during the Republican convention.

?I think what I said at the time was that we didn?t want to?become?the lap-dance capital,? said Bob Buckhorn, who is now Tampa?s Democratic mayor. Today, Buckhorn is less strident in his opposition but still takes no pride in his city?s notorious cultural offerings. ?There are plenty of other and better things to do in Tampa that are far less risky, both personally and professionally,? he said. ?They do not represent the best of Tampa nor is it something that we encourage people to visit.?

While some delegates will take Buckhorn?s advice to consider alternate diversions?he suggests Busch Gardens, the beaches of Pinellas County, and the Florida Aquarium as wholesome, family-friendly outings?the strip clubs are counting on at least some of the more than 4,000 delegates to risk their sterling reputations.

National conferences are very boring in comparison, although it is well known that certain cabinet ministers and board members like to frequent places of ill repute when out of the country.?

I love American political ads

Ron Paul gives Rick Perry a right hard slap.
