Barack Obama, speaking before AIPAC:
Across the political spectrum, Israelis understand that real security can only come through lasting peace. And that is why we, as friends of Israel, must resolve to do all we can to help Israel and its neighbors to achieve it, because a secure, lasting peace is in Israel’s national interest; it is in America’s national interest; and it is in the interest of the Palestinian people and the Arab world.
As president, I will work to help Israel achieve the goal of two states, a Jewish state of Israel and a Palestinian state living side- by-side in peace and security.
A modern-day Buffalo Soldier, eager and willing to do his part to keep the savages in their place while the settlers steal all the arable land. The Israelis know how to pick their friends, because if there is ANY nation on Earth that has perfected cultural genocide by setting up bantustans, it’s the United States. Peace through theft and brutal slaughter.

I’m very leary of using sexual metaphors, but when I saw those map images the first word that came to mind was “castration”. There are other acts of sexual violence that could have come to mind as metaphors, but perhaps the very male fear of loss of integrity was foremost in my mind.
It’s like telling them “you, my dear palestinian male are only half a man.”
This of course ignores the plight of women that bear the brunt of raising families in truly horrific conditions.Posted by on 06/05 at 12:13 AM
Well, there is always an element of sexual bullying in these sorts of national interaction. There is no “negotiation” with the Palestinians, any more than there was a “negotiation” with the Nations here in North America. There are conditions, followed by submission. Any man who won’t lay down arms and submit is threatened with humiliation or death, and their wives and children are threatened with extinction. Look back at how Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse were dealt with when they were finally forced to submit:
Finally, four years later, after his people were facing starvation and death, the great Lakota chief turned himself in to the U.S. military. He surrendered his rifle, but he remained at war with the white man in his heart.
Chief Sitting Bull had to accept the permanent presence of the white man. He had to accept the realty that the future of Indian people meant life on restricted reservation lands. He witnessed the erosion of an Indian way of life for a younger generation of Lakota—a loss of language and customs in exchange for the white man’s ways.
Ironically, the great chief even tried living within white society. He joined Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show. However, after a few months, he returned to the Standing Rock reservation to live the ways of his Lakota forefathers.
By 1890, the U.S. government had all but eliminated any serious Indian threat. However, there were concerns about a growing spiritual movement that foretold of a day when the Indians would run the white man off their lands. Sitting Bull was feared to be a big part of a renewed uprising. Before he could be arrested, his final vision came to pass. The warrior chief was shot by one of his own—a Lakota police officer.
Abbas might as well be a Reservation Police. Submission is demanded, and any movement or leader who won’t submit is considered beyond negotiation.
It makes perfect sense that you had that reaction, b/c Israel and the US are brutal, unforgiving, imperialistic and militaristic states obsessed with patriarchical ideas of power.Posted by on 06/05 at 12:46 AM
