Obama’s National Security Advisor Tells Joke Depicting Jews as Greedy Merchants
Breitbart.tv ^ | April 25, 2010 at 11:32 pm | C-SPAN3/Yid With Lid

Posted on 04/26/2010 12:10:58 AM PDT by counterpunch

Yid With Lid: He was giving the key note speech at a Washington Institute For Near East Policy and started it out with a "joke" that borders on anti-Semitic, teaching the crowd that Jews are just greedy merchants in the same vein as Shakespeare's Shylock...

Editor's note: For Yid With Lid's full post on "The Joke" see the related link below.

From Yid With Lid:
A Taliban militant gets lost and is wandering around the desert looking for water. He finally arrives at a store run by a Jew and asks for water. The Jewish vendor tells him he doesn’t have any water but can gladly sell him a tie. The Taliban, the jokes goes on, begins to curse and yell at the Jewish storeowner. The Jew, unmoved, offers the rude militant an idea: Beyond the hill, there is a restaurant; they can sell you water. The Taliban keeps cursing and finally leaves toward the hill. An hour later he’s back at the tie store. He walks in and tells the merchant: “Your brother tells me I need a tie to get into the restaurant.”

Is it horrible that I chuckled? Does it make me a bad Jew or something? Hundreds of years of Jewish jokes are based on us getting one over on our enemies or showing them to be fools.
Seriously, Jones, Zib and Obama are enabling a nuclear Iran. Tha'ts what I'm angry about.

No, no more than it makes me a bad Irish woman for laughing at Irish fighting and drinking jokes. We all used to have a good time laughing and joking with each other but...no more. The leftist ploy, Political Correctness, has stopped it all.

Now we’re just playing payback. Anything they say that’s even slightly derogatory will get bounced right back at them. It’s playing the Alinsky game. :)

Hey, did you hear the one about the "palestinian" tie salesman and his hospitality when some Jews got lost and wondered into his town?

Thank you, General Jones, whose fine military career will now be doubly asterisked, first as a moron who licks Ø's rear end, and then as a SCHMUCK who BADLY tells STUPID Jokes about Jews "cheating" a FREAKING TALIBAN.

Hey, General Jones, HERE'S YOUR PITIABLE TALIBAN, shooting a woman in the back of the head:

Have any good jokes for that?

I frankly don't see any slam here, nor slight, nor unfortunate characterization of Jews, nor merchants. The joke fits very fine in the context of the nasty, foolish hatred that Wahabi tend to have for Jews. Take a breath.

BTW, an old employer I had told me once that his synagoge's president shouted to him in the parking lot after one meeting, "David, do you know why there are gentiles?"

Dave: "No, why are there gentiles?"

Okay, okay, okay...

This one’s a gasser.

Lina goes to a gypsy fortune teller, distraught. She asks the gypsy, “I am seeing both Oly and Sven and I need to know, which one will be the lucky man. Please tell me!”

The fortune teller smiles widely and says, very pleased to know the answer, “Sven will be the lucky man! And you’re going to marry Oly!”

Both the commie left and radical islamists hate Israel and the US. Obama's loyalties are not to islam. He hasn't a religious bone in his body. He's a communist.

Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam and the American Left
by David Horowitz

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Amazon Book Review:
"Vastly Illuminating!" September 25, 2004
By Kat Bakhu

"I had long wondered why people on the Left had the propensity to speak more positively about people who would slit their throats than they do about their own country, which affords them more freedom and opportunity than anywhere else. David Horowitz has answered that question thoroughly and convincingly in his Unholy Alliance. Where I felt bewildered and confused, I now feel crystal clear. Unholy Alliance is such a great book.

It begins with the leftist movements at the beginning of the 20th Century, and works its way up to the present day, exploring the anti-American attitude of these movements in detail. Horowitz shows that the enemies of the US back then are largely the same group today, operating under the same misperceptions, making the same mistakes, and pursuing the same impossible utopia.

Individual chapters are included on the Patriot Act (I was persuaded that it is a GOOD thing); the democratic flip-flop on Iraq once G.W. Bush implemented what they agreed with Clinton needed to be done; the driving components of the current anti-war movement; as well as chapters on individual personalities who are major spokespeople of the Left. Horowitz covers a lot of ground, and he covers it concisely and clearly. Unholy Alliance is richly informative without ever being boring or plodding.

This book is so illuminating that I simply cannot do justice to it here. I love people who reason so clearly that they help me get my own reasoning clear. Horowitz is just that type of person! In the terrain of mindless clichés (no-blood-for-oil, etc.), he is a breath of real fresh air."

From AsiaTimesOnline
Feb 26, 2008

Barack Obama received at least some instruction in the Islamic faith of his father and went with him to the mosque, but the importance of this experience is vastly overstated by conservative commentators who seek to portray Obama as a Muslim of sorts. Radical anti-Americanism, rather than Islam, was the reigning faith in the Dunham household. ...

Barack Obama is a clever fellow who imbibed hatred of America with his mother's milk, but worked his way up the elite ladder of education and career. He shares the resentment of Muslims against the encroachment of American culture, although not their religion. He has the empathetic skill set of an anthropologist who lives with his subjects, learns their language, and elicits their hopes and fears while remaining at emotional distance. That is, he is the political equivalent of a sociopath. The difference is that he is practicing not on a primitive tribe but on the population of the United States.

There is nothing mysterious about Obama's methods. "A demagogue tries to sound as stupid as his audience so that they will think they are as clever as he is," wrote Karl Krauss. Americans are the world's biggest suckers, and laugh at this weakness in their popular culture. Listening to Obama speak, Sinclair Lewis' cynical tent-revivalist Elmer Gantry comes to mind, or, even better, Tyrone Power's portrayal of a carnival mentalist in the 1947 film noire Nightmare Alley. The latter is available for instant viewing at Netflix, and highly recommended as an antidote to having felt uplifted by an Obama speech. ..."

The joke is merely a rehashing of an old and often harmless theme. But what makes this version dangerously different is that here a Jew hating Muslim terrorist - wandering in a desert & desperate for water - is made to be the victim of Jewish greed & deceit. The fact that this version is told by Obama’s National Security Advisor make it astoundingly revealing.

Obama sucks up to Muslims and pretends to respect the religion, but in reality he, like every other die-hard communist, despises religion and scoffs at it. He, like his comrades in academia, fancies himself an "intellectual". His pastor of 20+ years, Jeremiah Wright is a "Black Liberation Theology" revolutionary communist. Bill Ayers and Dohrn also advocated "Black Liberation", although not through some bogus (communist front) church like Wright and Farrakhan.

The Center for Public Intellectuals & The University of Illinois-Chicago (UIC)
April 19th-20th, 2002, Conference

[Participants include: William/Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, Sen Barack Obama]

April 19th-20th, 2002
Chicago Illini Union
828 S. Wolcott

This conference is part of the Center's mission of helping to create a more engaged civil society, working towards social change, fostering coalitions between theorists and activists, and combating anti-intellectualism in contemporary culture. It will be both a celebration of ideas and a rigorous examination of the roles and responsibilities that intellectuals play in society.

I. Why Do Ideas Matter? (a keynote panel)

We introduce the “meta” theme of the conference by hearing “success stories” from diverse voices discussing their experiences intervening intellectually.

Timuel Black, Chicago activist; Prof. Emeritus, City Colleges of Chicago
Lonnie Bunch, President, Chicago Historical Society
Bernardine Dohrn, Northwestern University Law School, Children and Family Justice Center
Gerald Graff, UIC, College of Liberal Arts & Sciences
Richard Rorty, Stanford University, Philosophy

III. Lunch and Public Encounters

Alternative breakout tours led by Chicago activists. Tours of Bronzeville and other communities, and visits to organizations that are working on partnering theorists with activists.

IV. Intellectuals in Times of Crisis
Experiences and applications of intellectual work in urgent situations.

William Ayers, UIC, College of Education; author of Fugitive Days
Douglass Cassel, Northwestern University, Center for International Human Rights
Cathy Cohen, University of Chicago, Political Science
Salim Muwakkil, Chicago Tribune; In These Times
Barack Obama, Illinois State Senator

Telling it with a Jew hating Muslim terrorist, wandering in a desert & desperate for water, made a victim of America's & Israel's Islamic terrorist enemies and made America's friend Israel a villain.

Alas, a shipwreck occurred, deep in the South Pacific.

Only six survivors washed ashore a deserted Island: just two Norwegians, two Danes, and two Swedes.

But all was not lost!

The pilot of a passing plane one of them and some wreckage on the island and eventually, after two long years, they were rescued. And when they were rescued, it was found that:

The two Norwegians had declared war.

The two Danes had formed a singing society.

And the two Swedes were waiting to be introduced.

Have a good morning, everyone.

I'll be happy to be corrected. Very closely related -- I might have said Sunni extremists.

A Norwegian once told me that the Swedes are a very inventive people. Why, it was a Swede, long, long ago, who invented the outhouse latrine.

However, it was a Norwegian, who then invented the hole.

The Taliban started as a Sunni-Islamic movement in Afghan refugee camps in Pakistan in 1996. It was stared with Saudi money and by 1997 Al Qaeda fighters were welcomed to form the backbone of their army.

And here I thought the joke was on America's enemy, the Taliban. Could a' fooooled me. I here I was a puttin' myself in it, right there with the clever Jewish brothers and a laughin' at the nasty Taliban doofus.

Must be ah see things at face value, sometimes.

I've sometimes wondered whether my Swedish cousins are somehow descendants of Israel. After all, they kind of have a peculiar sense of humor, they like to keep to their own, they do use a lot of Biblical names -- and they actually like to eat pickled fish. It's just gotta be.
