Israeli troops begin Gaza pullout as Hamas declares cease...

In the middle east history is forever repeating itself. Seems like our annual congregation is due as once again the region is ablaze. I was just telling my uncle from NY on the phone that he needn't worry, we're well practiced at these scenarios. We practiced going into shelters to the sound of sirens during my school days. Merkava tanks are already gathering at the Gaza strip borders and very soon no one will be able to tell by the title of this thousands of pages long thread is the shadow of bygone days or a news headline from the present. It's almost as if I was 21 again and just been discharged from my military service and 'Cast Lead' was starting all over again. This is absurd.  (Jul 11, 2014 | post #74559)

I, like my political champion, am very worried for the future of Israel should no breakthrough occur with the Palestinians. Their unmasking does little to promote such breakthrough. A one state default solution is creeping through our back door. Only a two state solution would secure an Israel that is both democratic and Jewish in the long run. In Yair Lapid's words: we seek not a happy marriage with the Palestinians but a fair divorce.  (Apr 24, 2014 | post #74205)

Israeli troops begin Gaza pullout as Hamas declares cease...

Hello friends, long time since my last post here. I dropped by to share with you a sharp speech by Israel's finance minister Yair Lapid about the prospects of the negotiations with the Palestinians and his interpretation of the recent dead end the peace talks have run into. This is the voice of the sane, grounded and sober Israel who yearns for peace yet understands well who we are dealing with on the other side. https://www.youtub e.com/watch?v=4RZQ Rc6FKk8&list=U UGaxHoA164ZtteUDLs VOJBQ&feature= player_embedded  (Apr 24, 2014 | post #74202)

I knew you had to be around somewhere, seeing TRD here without his other half made no sense.  (Dec 24, 2013 | post #73042)

Are you trying to tell me that despite your diligent work there are is still an antisemitic presence in this forum? Don't they ever get tired?  (Dec 24, 2013 | post #73038)

Happy festivus TRD, or whatever fellow jews across the ocean celebrate when christmass fails to coincide with Chanuka. Alas my optimism is nowdays reserved for domestic politics, in the Arab case I'm afraid even my semi-leftist notions tells me its a lost cause. It frustrates me to noe nd that the human dumpster known as Gaza sewers... Ahhh... I mean strip, is not showing even the slightest hint of critical thinking as for the course they pursue so stubburnly on their way to burn or rott away. Gaza makes me wonder if in every single human society lies the potential for such avid self destruction.  (Dec 24, 2013 | post #73034)

Wow, seems like I'm not the only one who can't keep away from this discussion, its like we're all cursed to be drawn back here for a reunion once in a while to watch Gaza burn together. The gods are cruel indeed.  (Dec 24, 2013 | post #73031)

Greetings and salutatins thread veterens! things are heating up on the border again so I'm dutifully here to show my presence as always. TRD, I see you're still around, and Uzi as well! Gaza is still the cesspool it always was and there goes the neighborhood... Again. So, nothing's new under the middle eastern sun, just history repeating itself in a never ending cycle of stupidity with no hope for the human race. Just thought I'd drop by and reminiscence.  (Dec 24, 2013 | post #73029)

A new government was born today in Israel, leaving me very optimistic. This is not the government prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu hoped for, he was forced to leave the Ultra-Orthodox parties out of his coalition and give in to the joint demands of the YeshAtid and BayitYehudi parties, leading to the creation of a center-right government of liberal economic agendas, dedicated to strengthening the middle class and changing the relationship between religion and state. Yair Lapid, a rising star in Israeli politics whose party won 19 seats out of 120 in the Israeli Knesset, was appointed Minister of the treasury and will manage Israel's economy in the coming years after leading a successful campaign with the slogen "Where is our money?", a huge achivement for the former news anchor and talkshow host.

I'm high on a drug called hope, or as Eddie Mercury put it: "don't stop me now, I'm having such a good time, I'm having a ball!".  (Feb 19, 2013 | post #68171)

The Arabs will have to sort their own problems first, we have our own backyard to fix. Yair Lapid is not a politican, he's an educator, and nothing can stop the train once it left it's station. Every day that passes Israeli politics looks a little bit brighter, the old dealers feel the favor of the public turning against them. Netanyahu's days of the old and corrupt politics are over, his reign will be dictated by Lapid's terms and he will have to grow a spine. Like every serpent he will twist and slither but in the end he'll be subued, he's no match to the purity of the new politics. He can only look helplessly as the very rules of the croocked game is changing. From Zero to Hero, just like that.  (Feb 19, 2013 | post #68166)

Reading the talkbacks to articles about local politics in the myriad Israeli news sites made me realized rising star Yair Lapid's reputation is rocketing sky high. The most common comment to articles is "I should have voted for this guy". Recent polls show that if the elections took place today instead of a month ago, he was the prime minister heading the largest party. "From that day forward our boy Hercules (Yair Lapid) could do no wrong, he was so hot, steam looked cool" http://www.youtube .com/watch?v=qRCte eZTrjE  (Feb 19, 2013 | post #68157)

He was too busy to play an instrument,as Yair Lapid himself testifies about his father, he spent most of his life since the holocaust eating.  (Feb 6, 2013 | post #67832)
