Pre-Succos Roundup - Evil, Etrogim and the Saudi Lobby

If there is anything to be said for the mainstream media it's that New York based media organizations, that is the tabloids like the New York Post and the Daily News unleashed their hammer blows on that little man from Iran in a way that harkens back to the way the WW2 press treated Mussolini or Hitler. It was a refreshing reminder of what the American press can be and can do when the forces of political correctness and appeasement don't tie their hands.

As a sample here's a Daily News article Grinning madman Ahmadinejad squirms at Columbia

Unused to dissent at home, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad squirmed uncomfortably for some 90 minutes while trying to put a loving face on a message of hate.

In a day of pure New York drama at Columbia University yesterday, Ahmadinejad expressed skepticism of the Holocaust, questioned "who truly was involved" in the Sept. 11 attacks, denied oppressing women and claimed there are no gays in Iran.

Ahmadinejad also used his Ivy League platform to deny his country is seeking nuclear weapons, abusing human rights or wanting to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth.

or Ahmadinejad urges world to renounce Satan

UNITED NATIONS - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad piled on the melodrama and the insults in an address to the UN General Assembly yesterday, urging hostile world powers to turn from a "path of arrogance and obedience to Satan."

Meanwhile the New York post has an article by a former hostage, HOSTAGE TELLS HIM: SHUT UP!

Ahmadinejad was one of those outrageous Iranians who took me and more than 50 other Americans hostage for 444 days, violating international law and making us suffer indescribable moments of terror.

While the wife of POW soldier Goldwasser recalls her own confrontation with the man behind it all

"During the questions we made eye contact, we looked at each other more than once. The look on his face changed the moment he realized who was facing him and what I wanted from him," Karnit Goldwasser, wife of kidnapped soldier Ehud Goldwasser, said after her meeting with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in New York.

With Succos here, Mo'ah Kemo Efroa, has a good post on not buying bastard etrogim and no it's not what you think it is.

"Many who are reading this post enjoy the relative peace, security and material comfort provided by the United States. Our brethren in Israel are not as lucky these days. They are both imperiled by the security situation and impoverished by the economic one. One of the simplest ways to help Israel during this holiday season is to buy Israeli products, particularly ritual products such as wine and etrogim. But instead we prefer to use foreign etrogim."

Over at IsraPundit is a great article on the Saudi Lobby titled, Whatever Saudis want, Saudis get

I recently disclosed The Vast Power of the Saudi Lobby. Now I want to provide a list of what Saudi Lobby (money) achieved.

- In ‘48, US imposed arms embargo on Israel
- In ‘56 Israel forced by Eisenhower to retreat from Sinai
- Prior to ‘67 War, Johnson promised Nasser to supply him with intelligence
- In ‘73 war, Kissinger withheld resupplying arms to Israel so it would get “a bloody nose”
- When Israel turned the ‘73 War around, Kissinger insisted that the Egyptians be allowed to “save face”
- Shortly thereafter, the oil embargo and quadrupling of prices brought the Europeans and Americans to their knees. A deal was cut whereby they agreed to back the Arab narrative and to reverse the results of the ‘67 War
- Kissinger agreed to shrink Israel back to the pre ‘67 lines and to back the Palestinians as a means of doing it.
- Carter backs Sadat’s demand that “every inch” of Sinai be returned in exchange for peace.

Over at Lemon Lime Moon is a post on Teddy Roosevelt and what it means to be a man.

Finally a Chag Kosher and Sameach and enjoy the rest of the week. This blog will resume updates after Shabbat.

    Among your comments you stated that, in response to Arab/Saudi demands, President Johnson offered/gave Nasser intelligence on Israel's activities. Do you have a reference for this. This is very important in light of the accidental attack on the USS Liberty. While it is clear from the pilots tapes to have been an accident; nevertheless, many conspiracy theories have claimed it was intentional. I once heard that a rogue group was behind an effort to help gain points with Egypt by working through England. They feed information, gathered by the USS Liberty, to England who passed it to Egypt. This now takes on a much more sinister meaning. Taken with recently released transcripts of an early 1980's meeting between then Sec of State H. Kissinger and Iraqi Diplomats, where he told them that American wants a small friendly State of Israel (you know what that meant). And, the release of contingency plans to occupy Israel in 67. It seemingly proves that American (Federal) was very anti-Israel. Has anything changed? Yet it is to these people that Olmert is bowing too.
