Deja vu all over again.........
Oh bummer. This idiot. Not at a good time either.
Has Israel caught the French flu or something?.......I cannot understand any of their actions in the last few weeks.......
Personally, I think the whole world’s gone mad.......
The whole world has always been mad, but at least Israel was an island of sanity in a sea of madness..............
I dunno. I would say there’s been some bi-polar activity going on over there for awhile now.
It is time for sane people to depart that area and leave it to the dhimmis and Islamofascists to sort it out. I get a sick feeling in my stomach when I think about all the money the U.S. sends to governments in that area of the world. It is all down a rathole.
Did Bill Clinton have a hand in this?
Yes, I believe Ehud and Bill were drinking buddies.
Barek will attempt to appease Hamas by offering them Jerusalem, like he did before.
Barak is a former Israeli general who was strong-armed by the Clinton’s in the past, and will be strong-armed by them again if they are re-elected.
Until then, he’ll go as far as GWB lets him go, which will be a considerable amount toward smashing the terrorists in and around his area.
