    Nah, I think it is mainly motivated through religious fanatisims especialy in the Southern states of the US.

    Evangelical fanatics would rather see the land where Jesus "will return" under Jewish control than Muslim control, so Jesus can convert the Jews and those who refuse damn to hell.

    All of which contradicts the entire notion of zionism which is about jewish safety.

    In fact it is rather antisemetic and if I could ask the Jewish primeminister a single question it would be:

    "What is it like being the jewish primeminister of a jewish nation and to take political and financial support from foreign antisemites?"

    Good evening, Deuce.
    What job bills are those? Seems the only thing the House has done was try to repeal ACA and otherwise just the bare minimum. Oh, wait a minute, I recall a couple of bills, maybe job bills that were loaded with unrelated garbage like repealing ACA and redefining limits on abortion or something like that. Anyway, please, which bills are you speaking about. I'd like to read about them.

    Obama is antisemitic now?

    I think you'd find the answer to be much as I've presented in my previous post, "the enemy of my enemy is my friend." Clearly Dems/Left want and have been trying for decades to actually resolve the Israel/Palestine issue that flavors so much of the extremism in the ME that we seem to be steeped in. Republicans are happy to continue these wars into eternity, as is Israel, hence friends.

    For some, anyone who doesn't suckle at Israel's dick is an anti-semite.

    Well the only part you got Right. Is which way he doesn't lean. But at the bare minimum. I would at least expect him to behave like a Man and not get so emotional when someone overseas mocks him.

    Ya know he could have came back with his own Smacktalk, Right Summer.....you know, that First thought that comes to mind with those on the left. That which they do so well.....bring the Affront.

    You're the one who capitalize "right" so I thought I'd play with that. It's what I do.

    In seriousness, I can see a point to having a discussion with Netenhooha to see if his opinions were the same as their SoS, I can see Netenhooha calling it complaining because like the rightwingers here, he likes to hype and be a drama queen. I'm not at all worried that Kerry upset those morons, I actually respect him more. Seems to me much more diplomatic to carry on these types of issues calmly by phone as opposed to the hysterics their SoS published in public, now that's unprofessional.

    Thiers wasn't a SOS.....he was just a Defense Minister, one of several. But you think it is alright for Kerry to just pick up the Phone to call the Leader of another country to Bitch about something one of his ministers said? That's not being a Drama Queen? Or placing more Authority onto ones own back than that one has. To take it on themselves to Call a leader of another Country.

    I figure that's why Kerry has an underling who can make the call to another underling to get sentiments passed along. Which would be the proper way to handle it.....rather than Assume He has more Authority than that hat he wears..... or carries!

I wonder if I'm going to be sorry that I ever told the Ukraine we would give them a billion dollar loan - they're so ungrateful, they're even proceeding with their plans to hold a new election like it doesn't matter what we think about them running their country as they see fit! In the meantime, Israel is calling me names, and I just can't have that...it's so unfair...."

    Heya Lady P. Here is what this guy said.


    In remarks quoted in Israeli reports on Tuesday, Yaalon said Israel cannot depend on the United States to lead any action against Iran's nuclear program and can only rely on itself.

    "We thought that the one who needs to lead the campaign against Iran is the U.S.," Yaalon was quoted by the daily Haaretz as saying during a lecture at Tel Aviv University on Monday......snip~

    Now, here is what ticked Kerry off.....

    He also disparaged American influence and power, noting the ongoing crisis over Ukraine and Russia's annexation of Crimea.....snip~
