Yeah, that outreach is really working: Iran is now practically declaring that Lebanon is its client state: They’re not even trying to hide it anymore, so the big question is: Will Iran go to war with Israel if there is another war between Israel and Hezbollah?
Fatah to Israel: How’d you like a new version of the Three No’s? No negotiation (without a building freeze), no land swaps, and no recognition of Israel as a Jewish state. Yep, that’s the Three No’s of Fatah, signed on by Mahmoud Abbas, Israel’s “partner in peace.” Barack Obama is not just dreaming if he thinks he can get a peace deal during his term—he’s on drugs. By the way, is there a sign of this conference in the mainstream media? Can you find an AP version of this report? I can’t. Found a UPI report that carried the refusal to recognize Israel as a Jewish state, but that conveniently leaves out the “no land swaps” part regarding settlements. But outside the Jewish press? Nada. Report the truth? Shyeah.
Muslim ERA Watch: The Saudis, who are now on the UN’s Women’s Rights Council, are currently undergoing an interesting set of lawsuits. Women are suing their guardians for refusing to allow them to marry. The joke that is the UN is letting this medieval society sit in judgment on adherence to women’s rights by other nations. You can’t make this up. Money quote from the article?
“A Saudi woman can’t even buy a phone without the guardian’s permission,” said al-Hawaidar, who has been banned from writing or appearing on Saudi television networks because of her vocal support of women’s rights.
Hey, Israeli women: How many phones have you each bought in the last ten years? (I’ve bought new landline phones, extra handsets, and four cell phones in the past ten years.) The UN is an utter joke.
