The clock is already running down on this guy, I wouldn't want to be within a mile of him. That's why I question the logic behind taking him to Israel...he's plutonium.

I'd offer you tickets behind home plate for a promise to carry on the tradition this coming week but I know you're too much of a lady to get liquored-up and feign obscene gestures on national TV.

FYI, there are thousands and thousands of ex Lebanese Christian army officers living in Israel and nothing is happening with them. A lot of them opened businesses, restaurants but of course they are waiting for the right moments to go back home. We ate at Gen. Lahood restaurant in Tel Aviv once real good Lebanese food but since then it went bankrupt.

The great fake closet muslim president hits again:

Obama-backed al-Qaeda-affiliated Syrian rebels hit security complex with jihad-martyrdom suicide bombings
Another foreign policy success for Obama. "Suicide bombers hit Syria security complex: rebels," by Khaled Yacoub Oweis for Reuters, October 9 (thanks to all who sent this in):

(Reuters)- Rebel suicide bombers struck overnight at an Air Force Intelligence compound on the edge of the Syrian capital Damascus, killing or wounding at least 100 people, insurgents and activists said on Tuesday.
The militant Islamist group al-Nusra Front said it had mounted the attack because it was used a center for torture and repression in the crackdown on the 18-month-old revolt against President Bashar al-Assad.

"Big shockwaves shattered windows and destroyed shop facades. It felt as if a bomb exploded inside every house in the area," said one resident of the suburb of Harasta, where the compound was located.

Activists living nearby said the bombing caused at least 100 casualties among security personnel, based on the number of ambulances that rushed to the scene and the enormity of the explosions....

Opposition sources said the al-Nusra Front is made up mostly of Syrian Salafists who had ties to intelligence agencies before the revolt and were allowed to use Syria as a launchpad against the then U.S.-backed, Shi'ite-led government in Baghdad.

The United Nations says the front is affiliated to al Qaeda....

You're not really comparing Lebanese Christian apples to Hezbollah Oranges, are you? One prefers that you stay out of his country...the other prefers that you get out of yours.

I'd have debriefed and released in Europe, He'd blend right in to Londonistan or Paris.

Funny you should mention that.

I was shopping online for the Mohel to perform my new grandson's bris and came across an article about how Prince Charles' circumcision was performed by a Mohel. Well, you know I'm not going to take one mention as the gospel so I did a specific search and sure enough I found support for the claim that Rabbi Jacob Snowman did the deed at Buckingham Palace back in 1948.

Now the funny part...and I'm not really sure how it works but Google seems to paraphrase the articles it lists with random bits of text. Some of the language seems to come from the article while others originate in the comments afterward. I hope the formatting holds up when I copy/paste:

Circumcision is an affront to decent human behaviour - The Guardian
www.guardian.co.uk Comment is free Cif beliefJul 22, 2012 Catherine Bennett: We rightly decry female genital mutilation. Why, then, are so ... And I always thought Prince Charles was a complete prick.

There is no subject more restricted nor more controlled in the United States than a critical discussion of Israel. Balanced argument is ignored while each word is parsed -- and condemned. It's strange that we are free to rant and rave and point out the war crimes of our own administration -- of all other administrations throughout the world -- but not those of Israel. The few who dare to question the damage Israel has wrought throughout the Middle East for decades are immediately labeled "anti-Semitic," and are in danger of losing their friends, jobs, their reputations and, if they persist, their country -- for America has zero tolerance for those who recognize Israel's brutality.

But you are antisemitic. You've always been antisemitic Stewy, that's never shut you up though.

You keep blowing through here dropping some eloquent copy/paste and then punctuating your plagiarism with some guttural reference to how lucky Hamlet is with white women. I don't think you've ever gotten the hang of metric conversion though because I have garden tools shorter than your Shakespearean ambition.

Make one realistic comment about Iran and we'll make a conversation of it.

They sit on one of the largest fossil fuel supplies in the world while ignoring their inability to feed their population. Tell me again why they need nuclear instead of exploiting the one resource they have in abundance.
