May 11th, 2012

The storm gathers:

May ’67 was Israel’s most fearful, desperate month. The country was surrounded and alone. Previous great-power guarantees proved worthless. A plan to test the blockade with a Western flotilla failed for lack of participants. Time was running out. Forced to protect against invasion by mass mobilization — and with a military consisting overwhelmingly of civilian reservists — life ground to a halt. The country was dying.

On June 5, Israel launched a preemptive strike on the Egyptian air force, then proceeded to lightning victories on three fronts. The Six-Day War is legend, but less remembered is that on June 1, the nationalist opposition (Menachem Begin’s Likud precursor) was for the first time ever brought into the government, creating an emergency national-unity coalition.

Everyone understood why. You do not undertake a supremely risky preemptive war without the full participation of a broad coalition representing a national consensus.

Forty-five years later, in the middle of the night of May 7–8, 2012, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shocked his country by bringing the main opposition party, Kadima, into a national-unity government — shocking because just hours earlier, the Knesset was expediting a bill to call early elections in September.

Why did the high-flying Netanyahu call off elections he was sure to win?

Because for Israelis today, it is May ’67. The dread is not quite as acute: The mood is not despair, just foreboding. Time is running out, but not quite as fast. War is not four days away, but it looms. Israelis today face the greatest threat to their existence — apocalyptic mullahs publicly pledged to Israel’s annihilation acquiring nuclear weapons — since May ’67. The world is again telling Israelis to do nothing as it looks for a way out. But if such a way is not found — as in ’67 — Israelis know they will once again have to defend themselves, by themselves.

Godspeed to our friends and allies in Israel. It is to our eternal shame that we have a pusillanimous, Muslim-fellating fraud as pretend pResident who will no doubt do all he can to punish Israel for the unthinkable crime of self-defense while Jewish. It becomes especially disgraceful when you consider that the first salvo in Iran’s interminable war on Western civilization was fired against us back in 1979–when we had saddled ourselves with another weak, vacillating Democrat Socialist fool as pResident–and that Iran has attacked us by proxy again and again ever since, massacring American soldiers, sailors, and civilians alike with complete impunity. Throw in the indisputable fact that the rise of Islamist terrorism and their global war on modernity is a direct result of our cowardly refusal to deal harshly with the rogue Iranian state at the very start, and you have a recipe for a banquet of disgrace sumptuous enough to make even Michael Moore push back from the table and groan, “enough.”

    My best friend lives in Israel and tells me there is no doubt there's going to be another war in the region shortly. He says this time it's unlikely to be a 3 day or 6 day war and many 1,000s will die on both sides. The perpetual war with the Palestinians needs to end once and for all and there's only one way a war can really end.

    They also know that The Kommander is a back stabbing bastard, on the side of the moslems, and they would be foolish to out an ounce of faith in anything he promises.

    When things get dicey there, his defense role is an ambulance driver-the stories he's told me, yikes- and I told him I'll be there on the next flight if I can help, just say the word.

    It's a sad day that we fuck over one of our closest allies in the world-this mofo in DC and his whole crowd need to be gone. And I don't fucking care what kind of an archetype this would set up, I want this lying fucker prosecuted by the next administration(yeah good luck MM with that) He'll be collecting big bucks from his sycophants long after I'm gone. Disgraceful.

    "Godspeed to our friends and allies in Israel. It is to our eternal shame that we have a pusillanimous, Muslim-fellating fraud as pretend pResident who will no doubt do all he can to punish Israel for the unthinkable crime of self-defense while Jewish."

    Now now, it's not that bad.

    Poor President Obama, taking the hit for perceived pro-Islamic polices, during an election year, when BOTH sides know what is really going on. Politics. Remember when Nixon jumped on Kennedy, for the opening to China? IT WAS NIXONS IDEA! 🙂

    So, what if really going on?

    For one thing, Israel may be going to war. But, Israel cannot fight a two front war. Or, Israel may simply announce, publicly, that it has nuclear weapons. Either way, war is a risk.

    At the same time, Mubarick, in Eygpt, is falling. To the Islamics. Who don't like Israel very much.

    Since Iran is a tough nut, better to deal with the Eygptian problem, that's one we can win.

    We need to prevent the entry of Eygpt, in any Isarel/Iran conflict. How to do that, when the Muslim Brotherhood is taking over in Eygpt? Easy! Make sure the Muslim Brotherhood WINS.

    Remember the Soviet Union, kids? Big threat! How did the West deal with that threat? By giving the Soviet Union exactly what it wanted...COMMUNISM.

    Because, there is no way, those assclowns can field a modern, well trained and equiped army. Once the Muslim Brothehood takes over in Eygpt, they are no longer a threat. Just as communism killed the Soviet Union.

    So, it's not so bad.
