Leo doesn’t heart Mel: Word is that Leonardo DiCaprio exited a film he was going to do with mysognist anti-Semite Mel Gibson. The insider quoted doesn’t give a reason, but perhaps the fact that Leo is dating Israeli model Bar Rafaeli might have a little to do with it.
Depressing spot-on analysis number one: Barry Rubin on how stupid the British ambassador is for blaming the Hamas problem on Israel. (Okay, he didn’t say “stupid,” but I will, because, well, Master of Juvenile Scorn™ and all that.)
Depressing spot-on analysis number two: Jonathan Spyer on how Iran controls Lebanon, and why Syria will not be leaving the mix anytime soon. (In case you missed it, Baby Assad took a victory lap in Beirut just this week, where the Saudis put their official blessing on the Iran-Syria control of Lebanon. He also said, once again, that the region is heading for war—because Israel refuses to surrender. The March 14 movement? Dead. Hezbullah—and world inaction—killed it. Before blaming Obama for this, remember that George W. Bush didn’t follow up on it, either. By the way, if you’re not on the GLORIA Center‘s mailing list, you should be. And you should also consider contributing to an organization that constantly publishes the side of the story that the mainstream media ignore.
Yeah, but the kids are still going to have to convert if they move to Israel: Chelsea Clinton and her husband stood under a chuppah and were co-married by a rabbi. Before sundown on Shabbat. Way to start a Jewish life, guys! (Two million for a wedding? Wow, it totally pays to be president these days!)
Hamas is training child soldiers: But there will be no outrage from human rights groups, or the UN, about this. Hamas is distributing pictures of their leaders’ children being taught to fire automatic weapons (among other things). I think the course title was”How to kill the Jews.”
