Feminists for Palestinians: Working against their own interests. Israel just graduated its first female bomb specialist. And by “bomb specialist,” I mean the non-terrorist version of that job: One who disarms bombs instead of builds them. Compare Inbal Gawi to Latifa Abu Hmeid, who led the procession for Palestinian statehood last week. She is the mother of four terrorists murderers—another version of a “bomb specialist.” And that, in a nutshell, explains why I write “better than you” on some of my posts. I’ll take one Gawi over a thousands Hmeids. Anytime.

The Obama Muslim Outreach strikes again! Obama talked to Turkey’s prime minister Erdogan on Tuesday about the deteriorated relations between Turkey and Israel.

“The president underscored his interest in seeing a resolution of that issue between those two countries and encouraged continuing work toward that end,” White House adviser Liz Sherwood-Randall told reporters after the meeting, saying Obama also emphasized the need to calm tensions throughout the region.

So, how’s that working out for Israel?

Turkish PM calls Cyprus, Israel drilling “madness”
Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan described offshore gas drilling by estranged ally Israel and Cyprus as “madness” on Wednesday, raising the stakes in a confrontation over potentially huge deposits in the eastern Mediterranean.

And the Obama touch in the world continues. It’s kind of like the Midas touch, only in reverse. There’s nothing like electing a senator with no foreign policy experience (but he gave a speech in Europe once!). You just can’t beat the way he gets the world to bide by the American lines. Sorta like how the Palestinians aren’t pushing unilaterally for a state this week. Oh. Wait.

Ransom paid: The American idiots who thought hiking in Iraq was a good thing to do, and accidentally went over (or were pulled over by the Iranians) the border to Iran, are being freed today. Several reason occur: The ransom was paid (half a million each), and Mad Mahmoud’s people got the photo op it wanted. Now Mad Mahmoud can go to the UN and tell the world what a kind, generous Jew-hater he is.

    Wretchard of Belmont Club (alias Richard Fernandez of Pajamas Media) describes Obama’s knack as “the mierdas touch.” If you know your French, you know it’s just perfect…


  2. Yeah, our ninth grade French teacher taught us that word accidentally on purpose, because someone was mispronouncing a word that sounded like it.
