Program Link: NGO Monitor blasts Amnesty for not condemning rockets

…Lastly, maybe you saw what was in JPost hard copy this morning: remarks by actor John Voight at a Glen Beck event yesterday. “I feel complete contempt for anyone not intelligent enough to see that the media propaganda portraying the Palestinians as victims endangers the state of Israel…The Palestinian radicals have only one prayer on their lips; to remove every Jew from Israel.”

Imagine our prime minister saying this.

Better yet, imagine the head of the opposition in the Knesset Princess Tsipora the Enlightened protégé of her mentor St. Simon of Oslo. Tsipi Livni is such an air-head, she became Peres’s protégé after Oslo had already turned into the serial massacres of the second intifada.

Imagine Tsipi Livni speaking these words. Now that would be on her part an act of statesmanship of the highest order. In America the expression used to be “Politics stops at the water’s edge,” meaning we can squabble and fight domestically but in foreign affairs against the enemy, Americans are one. E Pluribus Unum.

But not in Israel. Here the head of the opposition does PR for the enemy in the name of Enlightened statecraft and Shimon Peres’s vision of peace.
