On a lighter note, the War on Terror wasn't any easier back when GI Joe was fighting Cobra, they had to deal with the ACLU too.
Via LGF, MS Magazine rejected a neutral ad emphasizing the role of women in Israel. An ad featuring Livni emphasizing the role of women is somewhat ironic, considering the "promotional campaign" she conducted for Israeli tourism involving Israeli women not exactly being appreciated for their achievements.
But putting that aside, this is a symptom of the growing delegitimization of Israel in liberal circles that begins to extend into formerly neutral areas. After Shabbat Debbie Schlussel will probably update the story further with details of Ms. Magazine's prior history on Israel or Islamic terrorism. Now Kathy Spillar who edits Ms. Magazine was a member of the Feminist Majority Foundation which apparently does not include Israeli women.
Mystical Paths meanwhile continues its great coverage of Bush's visit to Israel along with Esser Agorot, Cosmic X and Yisrael Medad disturbing highlights include the following;
On entry to Jerusalem this morning, every single car was closely searched. By men, in black, with machine guns. They opened the doors, pointed the gun right at me and my daughter, and ran the barrel up and down our sides (checking for weapons, or just intimidating). For my daughter I objected to the rather inappropriate treatment. They offered to prevent me from going in, or to shoot me if I'm any more trouble.
and Bizzare, not Bazzar
There is a select group of security forces here who are specifically trained to divorce themselves from the population, see themselves as elite servants of the government, and they are actually trained to brutalize. This was instituted by Rabin, and ramped up to a much higher level under Sharon.
Two groups clash with them regularly. The national religious / settlers, who are targeted at times and continue to push into expanding into the Land (the mitzvah of yishuv ha'aretz, settling the Land) and get beaten back. The other is the charedim, the ultra-orthodox, who minimally recognize the civil government. They (we) get beaten up whenever the government crosses religious lines or community boundaries, and since they (we) aren't going to reduce their (our) commitment to Torah values, you get repeated confrontations in these areas.
This was not the work of the US government, this was the work of the ISRAELI government. You even have the Israeli courts (which are very very left wing) turning free people arrested on trumped up charges now. The executive government is divorcing itself farther and farther from the people.
Hot Air meanwhile has video from the Republican debate
and Ron Paul fans have a plan to make women vote for them by seducing them
We are losing big time with all these women voting for Huck/Mccain/Romney. What the hell these women thinking? Look at all the CNN exit polls. Ron only gets few percent of the women votes!! This is outrageous! All people here mostly guys?! Are meetup group people mainly guys?! Our men have no girlfriends/spouse/mistress?? Start talking to girls! Make them fall in love in Ron Paul by telling them the message of liberty! If that does not work, make them fall in love with Ron by falling in love with you. There are millions of desperate housewives, young girls, hillary girls waiting to hear our message of liberty!
