Western Bleeding Hearts Pressured Israel to Ease Up on Restrictions of Construction Materials for Gaza--With Predictable Results

Israel was right, the bleeding hearts were wrong, same old, same old:
For years, human-rights groups, diplomats, pundits, and other opinion leaders demanded an end to the “siege” of Gaza, and eventually, they succeeded. President Barack Obama deserves special mention here; it was he who, after Israel’s botched raid on a flotilla to Gaza in 2010, twisted Israel’s arm into drastically easing its import controls. The pressure increased again after Egypt tightened its own blockade of Gaza last year, leading Israel to remove all remaining restrictions on construction materials like cement and iron. 
Most of those who pressed Israel on this issue sincerely wanted to improve Palestinian lives: Eliminating import restrictions, they argued, would let Gaza residents build homes and businesses, improve the economy, and generally contribute to Palestinian wellbeing. So they blithely dismissed Israel’s warnings that these materials would actually be used not to help ordinary Palestinians, but to build Hamas’s terror infrastructure. 
We now know Israel’s warnings were 100 percent correct...
With Gaza now a maze of underground tunnels, that is cold comfort, indeed.

Song for Al Quds Day "Protesters"

This one goes out to "Babyface" Bangash and his Queen's Park co-Khomeinists:

Zionhass,
They've got an awful case of Zionhass.
The detest Is-ra-el and love Hamas:
Zionhass.
Their foul hearts a-pumpin',
Who'll give the Joooos a thumpin'?
Zionhass,
The bad PR for Is-ra-el
Is a big plus.
The Mideast will be fine
Once it is Zionrein:
That's the goal of Zionhass.

Where Did the "Gay" in "Gay Pride" Go?

I'm not the only one to have noticed that that LGBT... thing has grown a tad unwieldy, including, as it does, almost every identity permutation in the non-hetero world. Someone who identifies as "gay" is peeved that, because of this excessive inclusivity, his letter has gotten lost in the shuffle (so to speak):
In an opinion piece titled “Where did the ‘Gay’ in ‘Gay Pride’ go?” published in The Advocate, Amin Ghaziani says that 45 years after the Stonewall Riots in New York — demonstrations in response police raids at a gay bars that are regarded as a catalyst for the LGBTQ movement — the term “gay pride” has been dropped in favour of just “pride.”
“We have said goodbye to ‘gay,’” he writes.
In an interview Tuesday, Ghaziani said the goal of the article is “to encourage people to think about how often we use just the word ‘pride’ as a placeholder for something more specific, and what does it mean when we do that.
“Doing so detaches, it removes any specific community from that event. Inadvertently those communities become silenced and that’s potentially dangerous. What we want to prevent is a re-closeting of individuals that have worked so hard to be visible.”
Ghaziani posits that there are two reasons why the word “gay” has disappeared when talking about pride. One is that it helps some straight people feel less discomfort about being in gay spaces. The other is that it’s used by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer/Questioning, 2 Spirited and Allies communities in an effort to be inclusive rather inadvertently exclusive.
Caryl Dolinko, communications co-ordinator for the Vancouver Pride Society, which organizes the city’s Pride celebrations, believes “gay” does not encompass the vast community that now exists.
“(Pride) is an all-encompassing term that invites all members of the rainbow to join,” Dolinko said. “There are different communities that have different needs and by calling pride ‘gay pride’ it does not address that.”
Dolinko said that so far there’s no term that takes in the interests of all of the communities involved. Even the term “queer,” which is generally accepted by the younger generation, is fraught because of its negative association.
“There’s not one word for everybody because the community is so diverse,” said Dolinko, who identifies as a lesbian.
“At least we’ve got an alphabet that is OK for us to label ourselves here. Thank God we live in a city and a country where I can be an L, a G, a B, a T, a Q, whatever.”...
"Whatever"--you took the word right out of my mouth.

"He Criticizes Capitalism, But Capitalism Made Him Rich"

Michael Moore--just another limousine lefty (who's getting a divorce and will have to split his 9--count 'em, 9--houses with his wife).

That's Michael "Rich as Croesus" Moore with a moustache
and without his trademark "regular schlub" baseball cap.

CASMO's App Crap

The Canadian Khomeinists think it's great that there's a app that can tell you which products are Israeli, so you can not buy 'em. (That's showing 'em--how?) Here's the thing, though: the app--which, after all is call Buycott--can also identify Israeli products for those who do wish to buy 'em.

What Khomeinists and their ilk really need is a jihad app, one that would identify local Jewish owned business and properties (what's that old saying about the jihad again? Oh, yeah--"think globally, smash locally"); an app that would complement the zany Zionhass on CASMO's Facebook page.

Update: CASMO posts the schedule of this year's official Zion-loathers' seethe-a-thons in Canada--in our two official languages, yet:

No "Anti-Semitism," Eh? Don't Make Me Laugh

Anti-Israel protest in Ottawa not overtly anti-Semitic say observers

They were hoisting flags of eliminationist Hamas. They were chanting, "From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free."

How much more "overtly" anti-Semitic can you get?

What--they think because there were no swastikas and they weren't chanting "Kill the Jews!" it wasn't "anti-Semitic"?

Reason enough to mothball the archaic and confusing terms "anti-Semitic"/"anti-Semitism" and replace 'em with Zion-loathing and Zionhass.

Update: A chant to counter the "river/sea" one: From the river to the sea, Israel will always be!

Mark Levin's Epic Rant Takes on Jon Stewart's "Putrid" Comedy

He said this on the Hannity show:
LEVIN: And that particular segment -- I don't watch him, but I watched this -- well, I watched this segment on the Internet, and the disinformation and the propaganda he was putting out in the form of jokes was outrageous! And I would just tell Mr. Stewart that it really doesn't take a lot of courage to criticize Israel and trash Israel. It's done all the time. It's done by Israel's, quote, unquote, "neighbors." It's done in Europe right now, where Jewish stores and so forth are being burned down and there's riots. It's done in Boston and New York, where the police have had to come out and protect pro-Israeli rallies and so forth. So you're not really a tough guy. You're not really cutting-edge.
 
And the fact of the matter, Mr. Stewart, is that if Hamas had the weaponry that Israel had, nuclear weapons and other weapons, Israel would cease to exist. And if Israel wanted to take out whole communities in Gaza, or the whole Gaza strip, they could do so in about 30 minutes. And it doesn't.
 
This is the only country I know of that has thousands of missiles rained in on it, missiles coming from Iran through Hezbollah to Hamas, a country that agrees to a cease-fire that was negotiated by Egypt and the Arab League, and still has to tolerate these attacks. And even today, Sean, a missile came very close to Ben Gurion airport. They shut down the airport now to international traffic. The United States did. So now Israel is isolated in that way.
 
Can you imagine? The Gaza strip is relatively distant from Ben Gurion airport. The West Bank is very close. So what this demonstrates is Israel must never demilitarize or give up the West Bank because it will lose all control over its security!
 
So I -- I thought Jon Stewart -- I don't think he's funny. I don't think he's smart. How can he be, 10, 30 writers? But I thought this particular segment was really putrid...
Read it all, for 'tis righteous and exhilarating.

The Ceeb's Unintentional, Very Dark Humour: Organizers of the Violent, Pro-Hamas Calgary Riot "Hope the Message of Rally Not Missed by Outbursts"

No worries there, "organizers" and your Ceeb apologists. I'd say the message "Kill the Jew!" comes through loud and clear.

Update: More Ceeb black comedy, this time in a report about a would-be majaheed who seems to have given the RCMP the slip:
RCMP said the man is believed to have travelled to [Syria] to join Islamist fighters.

A woman who answered the phone at Yusufzai's home said he wasn't there, then said she didn't speak English.
That's hardly a shockeroo.

That Darn President

"Hitler Would Be Proud" as Zionhass Convulses Londonistan

Douglas Murray writes (in The Spectator) about the city's recent pro-Gaza festivities:
Thousands of anti-Semites have today succeeded in bringing central London to an almost total standstill. 
They marched though the centre of the city before congregating to scream outside the Israeli Embassy in Kensington. It was interesting to watch this rather non-diverse crowd pass. Most of the women seem to be wearing headscarves or the burka, while their men-folk were naturally more appropriately dressed for a sweltering summer day. 
But what a picture. These are the people who stayed at home throughout the Syrian civil war, stayed at home when ISIS rampaged across Iraq, stayed at home when Boko Haram and Al-Shabaab carried out their atrocities across central Africa and showed no concern whatsoever when the Muslim Brotherhood was running Egypt into the ground. Yet they pretend to care about Muslims. 
And here they all are, coming out to scream because Israel is carrying out the most specific and targeted campaign in the history of warfare in order to stop Hamas – a group dedicated to the annihilation of all Jews – from firing thousands of rockets into the Jewish homeland.
 
I suppose some of the people in London today might still try to pretend that they don’t hate Jews. Perhaps some of them would not even do what their co-religionists in France did last week when – intent on violence – they blockaded worshippers inside a Synagogue. But there is only one explanation for their horrible beliefs and actions.
So, yes, Hitler would be proud--of the "protesters."
