Friday briefs

French justice for murderers: Well, when it’s Jews and Americans they kill, the French sure like to just let them go. The price for two murders, including an Israeli diplomat? Less than 20 years.

Bar-Siman-Tov was murdered in April 1982. A terrorist who waited for him at the entrance to his apartment building shot him in the head three times in front of his wife and kids.

Abdallah’s lawyer said his client hopes to return to Lebanon and take up a teaching job there.

I’m sure he’ll be teaching the Lebanese oh, math, geography… how to murder Israelis and Americans. Way to go, France, you cheese-eating surrender monkeys.

Seriously, do the platinum coin pushers not know how stupid people think they are? I mean, really, Americans aren’t that stupid. They know that if you mint a coin, declare it to be the size of the debt, and pay the debt with it, you look like a child that doesn’t know the value of money. Why don’t they just use Monopoly money to pay the debt? It makes as much sense.

First they came for the Jews and Americans: Terrorists murdered 115 and wounded God knows how many more Pakistanis, including a double bombing in a pool hall that killed 82 people in quick succession, the second bomb murdering those that ran to the aid of the victims of the first. The Taliban is being blamed. Yeah, things are going to go great in Afghanistan when Obama pulls all U.S. forces out next year. The two countries are teh awesome. Pakistan loves Iran. The rest of the world pretty much can’t stand Iran, but they’re the bomb in Pakistan. Note to self: NEVER go to that area of the world. Ever.

If only: Ultra-Orthodox IDF troops saved Palestinians trapped in floodwaters of the Nablus river. There’s video at the link. Don’t count on the Israel-haters to acknowledge things like this. Nope. No word of the rescues in the AP.

If it quacks like a Nazi: Germans are shocked, shocked I say, that the Weisenthal Center has included a German anti-Israel journalist on their top ten anti-Semites list. I don’t know why they’re calling him an anti-Semite. After all, when he wrote this:

“With backing from the US, where the president must secure the support of Jewish lobby groups, and in Germany, where coping with history, in the meantime, has a military component, the Netanyahu government keeps the world on a leash with an ever-swelling war chant.”

it sounds like nothing so much as an Andrew Sullivan post.

The Germans are rallying around Augstein. But of course they are.
