Woot! It’s March! Spring is nearer! (I am SO done with winter.) ((I SO started this post yesterday and finished it today.))
Please. He wasn’t going to go there anyway: Hamas warns Obama to stay away from the Temple Mount. Because it’s not the Temple Mount, it’s some Muslim shrine or other. I didn’t know that, did you? But I have to say, if I were Obama, I would visit now just to spit in the eye of Hamas.
Erdogan, anti-Semite: He is now equating Zionism with “crimes against humanity“. (And oh yeah, “Islamophobia” is a “crime against humanity,” too.) To its credit, the White House has called him out on it. But we have yet to hear Obama himself say that his bestest buddy Erdogan is doing the wrong thing. As for the UN, well, get this:
The United Nations also released a statement condemning the remarks made by Erdogan “if the comment about Zionism was interpreted correctly.”
They never want to come out and call an anti-Israel or anti-Semitic statement what it actually is. Screw them, and why didn’t the sequester include our funding to the UN? That would have been so awesome….
An anti-Obama op-ed in the Times? The cracks are beginning to show in the united front for Obama. Joe Scarborough says Obama overplayed his hand on the sequestration. Sure, it’s a Saturday op-ed, and nobody reads the Saturday papers, but it’s there.
