Paul Mazursky was middle-aged and still cool when I met him, and Down And Out In Beverly Hills had been a pretty big hit, and I thought he'd carry on making films like that for another quarter-century. It was not to be. But Hollywood is the poorer for it.
~Speaking of American Jews, in the wake of the murder by Hamas of Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shaar and Naftali Frenkel, Ben Shapiro has written a withering piece on "the Jew-hating Obama Administration". Whether or not they're Jew-haters, they're certainly very quiet:
President Barack Obama said nothing about them publicly. His wife issued no hashtags. His State Department maintained that $400 million in American taxpayer cash would continue to the Palestinian unity government, which includes Hamas.
Presumably Frenkel did not look enough like Barack Obama's imaginary son for him to give a damn. Or perhaps Frenkel hadn't deserted his duty in the American military, and therefore his parents didn't deserve a White House press conference. Maybe Michelle Obama was too busy worrying about children's fat thighs to spend a moment tweeting out a selfie to raise awareness.
Naftali Frenkel was a US citizen. That's to say, he was entitled to the protection of Obama and his worthless State Department. In geopolitical terms, the problem is not Mr Frenkel's murderers: every society has its share of blood-lusting savages. The problem is that the overwhelming majority of Palestinians exult in Mr Frenkel's murder.

Palestinian "nationalism" is a euphemism for a death-cult whose pathologies seep into almost every routine daily transaction: The last time I was there, a few years ago, the affable proprietors at almost every convenience store had various local Martyrs of the Week pinned up on the wall behind the cash register, and the Education Ministry was giving first prize in its letter-writing competition to a seventh-grader from Jenin pledging to his deceased father to become a suicide bomber and "propel my living-dead body into your arms". Their own corpses are historic victories, and Jewish corpses are the spoils thereof. There is no evidence of "nation-building", nor any appetite therefor. Invited to choose between nation-building and Jew-killing, they plump for the latter, every time.

(Iraq: it's not about Iraq anymore, it's about the USA!)
This Administration takes the view that, if an American infant and his mother get shanghaied in Khartoum because she's a Christian, that's just the way it is, and the way it will be until the last Christian is fled. Likewise, if an American Jewish boy gets murdered by Hamas, that's just the way it is, and the way it will be, until the last Jew is dead.

The problem is that the overwhelming majority of Palestinians exult in Mr Frenkel's murder.
The majority of Palestinians also celebrated the murder of 3000 Americans on 9/11. They are savages.

They ARE savages! And our congress is sending them millions of our dollars! Can somebody explain this to me?

You already know the answer to that question.
You just don’t want to admit it to yourself.

(The Lord uses the good ones; the bad ones use the Lord.)
Obama did not create this sickness, but he is rewarding it. If you can kill Jews and US citizens without the Great Satan putting a stop on the nine-figure check, then you've got the best of both worlds.
Unbelievable. Are we paying them off hoping to keep a dirty nuke out of DC or NYC?
Kind of like continuing to pay generational welfare payments to low life scum to keep said takers off of the streets.
