Anna Nicole Smith Wipes Israel off the News by Jack Engelhard 2/19/2007

www.israelnationalnews.com

People outside the United States, mainly people in Israel, actually believe that we’re worried about what goes on beyond Anna Nicole Smith. Let me be the first to inform the world (are you listening?) that, sure, once in a while, we care about foreign affairs, but mainly it’s Anna Nicole Smith.

Anna Nicole Smith, dying as she did several weeks ago, and thus leaving behind an inheritance that everybody wants, did something that even Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad failed to do – she wiped Israel off the map, so far as news. Click on the TV, scroll to any channel, and here’s the latest not on Iraq, not on Sudan, certainly not on Israel, but on Anna Nicole Smith. Wall to wall, this coverage.

This is important information, especially for Israelis, who give up 10 miles of territory whenever they think we, in America, are not happy with their behavior. As soon as they think America is displeased, they say, “Okay, what do you want us to give up next?” Anything to make us (and the rest of the world) happy.

Last time I was in Israel, people asked, “Does America love us?” I guess my answer wasn’t affirmative enough because a day later Israel they gave away Gaza.

Israelis operate on the (dangerous) assumption that their well-being depends on our thumbs up or thumbs down.

They think we’re paying attention, yes, but to Anna Nicole Smith.

In a moment, I will update the world on what else is hot here in America, on the news front, but meanwhile, let’s get back to Anna Nicole Smith. Anna Nicole Smith was an actress. No, wait. Not exactly. Anna Nicole Smith was a TV star. Well, not that, either. I give up. I really don’t know what she was.

Trust me, though. Nearly everybody claims to be the father of her baby – because of the inheritance. Did I mention that she once married a 90-year-old billionaire?

Now everybody claims to be the father. Barack Obama claims to be the father, as does Rudy Giuliani and John Edwards and John McCain and even Hillary Clinton.

Mitt Romney is the latest to claim fathership. Oh dear, my mistake. These are people running for president.

Never mind. That’s what happens when all the news is about Anna Nicole Smith, but not totally. There’s been other news.

Before Anna Nicole Smith, we were obsessed round-the-clock and round-the-dials with a jealous lady astronaut who wanted to send a romantic rival to the moon with one punch. This story was big at the time but it’s old now so there’s no sense in recapping, except that there’s always more on this if you tune in Greta or Geraldo, both of whom, incidentally, are also on top of the Anna Nicole Smith saga, naturally.

Before all that? Are you kidding me? Before all that we had the Super Bowl. For weeks leading up to this we had experts, across all the dials, discussing the commercials, the half-time show, and even the game. Like everyone else in America, I watched the game. Please don’t ask me who played. All I remember is that one team won, the other team lost.

But now, all that’s done, so we can really concentrate on Anna Nicole Smith.

To my friends in Israel, listen, please don’t be so quick to give up any more territory. You’re not doing us any favors and we have more important business.

We’ll get back to you after we’re done with Anna Nicole Smith, if that ever happens.

One more quick note. Canvass any street in America and, I’ll bet, only one person in 10 can name the prime minister of Israel – you know, what’s his name.

She's wiping everything (except perhaps Britney Spears) off the news, so don't feel bad.

“Does America love us?”

I guess enough of the right people do. The rest would rather watch news about a dead bimbo...but they would do that Israel or no Israel.

Anna Nicole's death reminds the nation of Marilyn, except for the talent part.

Roger that, FOX, like SeeBS, NBCr*p, & AlwaysBCr*p are entertainment companies, which all have a self-interest in promoting celebrity garbage. Finding myself surfing away from celebrity trash reports anything else.

Wife and I went to the noon service. She was out in public all afternoon, and answered many questions about the ashen cross on her forehead. A witness to (fellow) Christian and non-Christian alike!

Me too. I got home at 8:30 last night and serfed channels and settled on an old Andy Griffin show. Then at 9:00 O'Reilly was no better. I tuned back into him for the Letters.

My suggestion...cremate the body, divide the ashes in 3 portions. Put the baby, without the money, up for adoption to a deserving childless couple. Give all the money to deserving charity. Charge Stern with murder of both Smiths.

The naughty astronaut lady should let drop a flower upon the grave of Anna Nicole Smith..

The great unwashed do love their soap operas.

It's pathetic that people pay attention to this drivel.

See what is being done to fathers divorced by their wives in Israel. If you can understand the truth behind that wrongful policy, you'll understand as to why America is more concerned about celebrities and idolatry than about life-and-death policies.

You’ve persuaded me to put on Some Like it Hot, not that it took much arm-twisting.

Even worse, my FRiend, not one of our fallen heroes has received even a fraction of the attention given to that dead whore, right here on Free Republic.

There's another thread on FR for your obsession.
This thread is about how asinine your obsession is.

Time for THE LIST!!!!!

This case has not been so much about the Tabloid Anna Nicole Smith, but the legal crises surrounding;
The death of a son - about to reach his majority (age 21)of undetermined manner and cause. Could be homicide.
The birth of a daughter - whose paternity and custody is in question - who may also have been born addicted to illegally obtained prescription drugs.
The premature, undetermined death of the infant's mother -could be homicide, suicide or misadventure.
Conspiracy to access a $1.6billion estate and eliminate per stirpes heirs.
Conspiracy by lawyers and foreign government officials to circumvent immigration laws for fraudulent purposes.
Intent to defraud owners of real property and real estate.
Illegal transportation of prescription drugs, by interstate and international waters.
Potential kidnapping of a US citizen.
Creation and presentation of fraudulent documents to avoid parental and custodial rights.
Possible religious bias against a Southern Baptist/Christian upbringing for a child who had a GODMOTHER appointed by her mother, who had a "Baptist" minister perform a "committment ceremony". Will the self-appointed father honor this religious affiliation or circumvent it?

WE SHOULD ALL BE TERRIFIED THAT THESE SAME LAWYERS, GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AND JUDGES COULD PUT ALL OF US IN JEOPARDY.

A REVIEW OF ALL THE "LEGAL" RULINGS TO DATE SHOULD REMIND US TO NEVER LEAVE OUR AFFAIRS IN THE HANDS OF LAWYERS OR JUDGES.
