Weekend Reading

Tomorrow I'm headed to the rally where Jerusalem Bus # 19 will be on display. I promise to report back about it. In the meantime, here's a bit of interesting reading.

Intelligence squelched
By Melanie Phillips
"I had the misfortune to take part in a high-profile and packed debate in London in the 'Intelligence Squared' series. The motion was 'Zionism today is the real enemy of the Jews'. The motion was proposed by three Jews..."

[snip]

"This sport of Jew-baiting has now become the vogue among the British media, which uses Jews to unleash the most blatant untruths and vicious lies and libels about Israel so that the media can disavow any anti-Jewish prejudice, on the grounds that Jews cannot be anti-Jew. Alas, would that this were so."

Read the whole article here.

********************************
Hat tip to Naomi Ragen for this one, which shows yet another reason to find the UN worse than neutral -- but actually helpful towards terror:

Despite Israeli Alerts, U.N. Transfers Thousands to Hamas Affiliates
By Benny Avni - Special to the Sun
UNITED NATIONS - A United Nations agency transferred thousands of dollars to a Palestinian Arab charity affiliated with terrorism long after Israel warned of the terror connection, though the U.N. publicly claimed payments to the organization had stopped. Read more here.

There's a pro-Palestinian rally at Union Square in NYC a few Saturdays a month. I never go, it usually turns into a fight match bet. protestors and anti protestors.

Gindy, it's weird you couldn't post here. Hmm... The rally is at the Simon Wiesenthal Museum of Tolerance near Pico/Beverly Glen at 2pm. U in LA?

RW, I remember those back when I lived in NY. Yeah, can't say I didn't make sure to avoid those.

Marty, ain't that the truth.

You are cracking me up, Gindy. Yes, with the H...that was me. I'm back from the rally and getting ready to post about it. I'm sure the bus is probably on its way to Irvine (I believe they're having a rally tomorrow) by now though.

Small world! Makes me feel even more connected to Italy than I already do. I went six years ago, and I miss it so much. Greatest. Food. Period.

I try not to take anything for granted. Just making sure. Was it worth it?

Oh totally. I thought it was very moving.

I sent this to Tom Carter as well.

I was hoping you can take a look at my "Who said this" for today. I have been having a discussion with Holly. I am try to show her that there are many Democrats that don't relate to the far left. We are all indiviuals with individual opinions. But, I think (Think) that you and I agree that the party has not been helping itself as of late. If you don't agree with me or don't have time I completely understand. I don't have time to respond to everything I see. Although, I wish I did. I am trying to address this in a respectfull tone to get the point across. If you have time check it out and maybe put in your two cents. It would be appreciated. Thanks.
