Israeli Community Forced to Build Walls to Protect School Buses from Hamas Rockets

May 31, 2011

Officials in Kibbutz Sa’ad, near the Gaza Strip, have decided to build a cement wall that will protect student buses as they enter the community.

The initiative follows the rocket attack on an area school bus almost two months ago that claimed the life of one student.

The decision was taken last week, and construction work began Monday

“It’s another precaution we’re adopting, mostly because of the school buses that come and go,” said kibbutz secretary Buki Bart. “The entrance to the kibbutz was identified as a vulnerable spot that can be monitored from the Strip, and after the bus incident we decided to protect the entrance using such cement walls.”

What distortion? NYTimes wants to accuse others of distortion regarding Obama’s so called 1967borders

May 31, 2011

Obama said the 1967 borders. That was why the NYTimes reported exactly what it did. That was why everyone else reported it exactly as they did. So everyone else is guilty… even though they were right because they reported back Obama’s word, but the NYTimes blames everyone else for doing what is right… and even some of the staff of the NYTimes actually reported the event correctly. When they make it this complicated it seems like Obama never said it… but he did… and then they make it into a strawman… oh… I get it… it is so confusing that they think they fooled us… I guess they did.

picking on Mamet @NYT Magazine – Character Assasination of one of the greatest writers of our times because he isn’t a liberal lemming

May 31, 2011

Acclaimed playwright David Mamet is featured in the New York Times Sunday magazine’s “Talk” feature (formerly the “Q&A) on the eve of the publication of “The Secret Knowledge,” his dramatic intellectual break with the political left.

Early reviews suggest Mamet’s message is bracing, and the left has responded in kind with vicious cries of sellout. Perhaps that’s why Andrew Goldman’s Q&A with Mamet is testier than his previous interviews (he replaced the liberal Deborah Solomon in the magazine’s Q&A slot in March). Even the subhead was slanted and hostile: “David Mamet explains his intellectual shift to the right. The far right.”

A few of Goldman’s challenging questions (in bold) and Mamet’s answers (in normal type):

Years ago, you described “American Buffalo” as being about “how we excuse all sorts of great and small betrayals and ethical compromises called business.” In this book, you defend enormous payouts to C.E.O.’s working for failing corporations. You seem to have changed radically.

I have. Here’s the question: Is it absurd for a company to pay hundreds of millions of dollars to a C.E.O. if the company is failing? The answer is that it may or may not be absurd, but it’s none of our goddamned business. Because as Milton Friedman said, the question is not what are the decisions but who makes the decisions. Because when the government starts deciding what’s absurd, you’re on the road to serfdom.

….

You wrote that Karl Marx “never worked a day in his life.” But how is his writing “Das Kapital” fundamentally different from the way you make a living? You realize you’re not a plumber, right?

Jesus Christ. Listen, here’s the thing about an English degree — if you sat somebody down and asked them to make a list of the writers they admire over the last hundred years, see how many of them got a degree in English.

Sometimes in the book I thought you were just trying to anger some of your liberal friends, like when you wrote the West sees the Middle East conflict as “entertainment.”

No, I think that it’s true. There has always been a different standard for the Jews. We’re like “honorary Aryans,” as Hitler said of the Japanese. That means that we’re human beings only when it suits the world to treat us as human beings. There’s a pretty good book on the subject — the Torah.

you know what it takes in the theatre world to have a little Chutzpah against the Liberal Lynch Mob? BRASS BALLS!

Oh noes… one of the best playwrites of recent memory doesn’t hate himself and has a brain. You just know the NYTimes will give him a Goldstone-ish Report

“Forcing yourself into a new way of thinking about things is a wrenching experience. But first you have to look back and atone. You think, ‘Oh my god, what have I done? What was I thinking?’ You realize you’ve been a co-dependent with the herd. And then, when you decide to say what you’ve discovered, out loud, you take the risk that everyone you know will look on you as a fool.” 

…Higher ed, [Mamet] said, was an elaborate scheme to deprive young people of their freedom of thought. He compared four years of college to a lab experiment in which a rat is trained to pull a lever for a pellet of food. A student recites some bit of received and unexamined wisdom—“Thomas Jefferson: slave owner, adulterer, pull the lever”—and is rewarded with his pellet: a grade, a degree, and ultimately a lifelong membership in a tribe of people educated to see the world in the same way.
“If we identify every interaction as having a victim and an oppressor, and we get a pellet when we find the victims, we’re training ourselves not to see cause and effect,” he said. Wasn’t there, he went on, a “much more interesting .  .  . view of the world in which not everything can be reduced to victim and oppressor?”

PA President Mahmoud Abbas said the Palestinian state “will be free of all Jews.” again

May 31, 2011
At the Arab League meeting in Qatar on Saturday, PA President Mahmoud Abbas said the Palestinian state “will be free of all Jews.”

Last week the US-supported Abbas denied the Jewish connection to the land of Israel and claimed absurdly that the Palestinians were 9,000 years old.

Equally incriminating, in an interview last week with Aaron Lerner from the IMRA newsgathering website, Palestinian negotiator Nabil Shaath said that now that Hamas was the co-leader of the PA with Fatah, responsibility for continuing to hold IDF St.-Sgt. Gilad Schalit hostage devolved from Hamas to the PA. And the PA would continue to hold him hostage.
