The 21st century No: The Arab League refuses to admit that Israel is a Jewish state, Israel was a Jewish state, and Israel will always be a Jewish state. Because admitting that Israel is a Jewish state means the end of their failed war against the Jews in their midst. Okay. Don’t say it. But dudes… it is, whether or not you admit it. And it’s going to stay that way.
No Jews allowed: Saudia Arabia denied a visa to the American Jewish reporter for the Jerusalem Post who wanted to cover Obama’s trip to the kingdom this week.
Wilner, a Jewish American, works for the Israeli English-language newspaper, but does not hold Israeli citizenship and has never lived in the Jewish state. Saudi Arabia has no official relationship with the government of Israel.
But it’s not anti-Semitism. It’s anti-Zionism. As for the Obama administration? Well, it expressed its “deep disappointment”. But you can’t expect Obama to stand up for press freedoms. Not when he’s being called this generation’s greatest enemy of press freedom.
Maybe, but it’s definitely pissing him off: Vladimir Putin says being kicked out of the G-8 is “counterproductive“. No it’s not. It got a reaction, didn’t it? Actually, the best reaction to Western response on the invasion of Crimea so far is the Russian stock market taking a nosedive. Here’s to much more of that, because it’s the only weapon Obama is willing to use against Russia, and only when he’s forced to by circumstance. Hurry, 2016. Please.
Suuuure they will: Hamas says it will accept a peace deal with Israel that passes a national referendum. Uh-huh. Right. Sure. Because it’s not like their charter calls for the end of the Jewish state. Oh. Wait.
