Tartuffs

Here is another one on Sara Palin. Again, I couldn't resist. Ami Isseroff, usually a smart and self-effacing Israeli who knows his place... and explains about things Israeli, cracks a glass wall in order to ventilate a bit about the hopeful audacity of liberal double standards. But don't worry, he does not quite forget or spare Palin's penchant for Hitler apologist Buchanan and oter archeological theories. Here are a few snapshots:

So what does the camp of the angels and the intellectuals go and do? ... They spread a salacious and entirely false rumor that Bristol, the daughter of McCain's vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, is the real mother of Palin's fifth son, who suffers from Down's syndrome...to force the McCain campaign to come out with the real and less than convenient truth, that 17 year old Bristol is really pregnant now.

Oh what glee this has caused in the camp of the enlightened progressives! ... If only the Palins had been Democrats, Bristol would have gotten an abortion, because everyone knows that teen mothers should get an abortion, right?

Except that Stanley Ann Dunham married Obama Sr. at age 18, in February of 1961... Baby Barak was born in August.... Obama's mom should have gotten an abortion, too, right? But when "the right" people do it, it is "bohemian" and "unconventional"...

Not since Hester Prynne and her letter "A" has America witnessed such an outpouring of true progressive sentiment and tolerance. Bristol Palin has already been put in the stocks and shamed on a scale that New England Puritans could never have imagined...

Just because Bristol Palin is having a baby and is not married yet, does not mean anyone should ignore her mother's support for arch-conservative gentleman's anti-Semite Buchanan, her insistence on legislating her anti-abortion morality to force it on others, her support for teaching creationism in the public schools, or her total ignorance and inexperience in foreign affairs.

But about that I have already posted, here.

That Hester Prynne's reference was a master stroke. As well as the zoom-in on the "compare and contrast" between Ann and Bristol, or more poignantly, Ann and Sara...

Here is a convergence of ironies playing against each other that should teach us all a valuable lesson, if only we knew how to read the tale of three women who could have, or should have, but rejected the abortion solution. What does that tell us about the very real dilemma presented by abortion?

British Muslims Offended by Christians Praying during Ramadan
From the desk of The Brussels Journal on Tue, 2008-09-02 21:15

A quote from Cranmer on his blog, 2 September 2008

A Christian group in Oxford has apologised to the city’s Muslims for having the audacity to organise a day of prayer during Ramadan. Oxfords Muslims found it ‘ill-conceived and insensitive’, not to mention ‘grossly insulting and inflammatory’.

The Muslim Education Centre of Oxford (MECO) has accused the Evangelical group ‘Open Doors UK’ of preaching ‘evangelical propaganda’.

Do not Muslims preach Islamic propaganda? Do the Christians in Oxford complain about this? Would the Muslims of Oxford apologise or even care if the Christians did complain about it?

But the greatest offence was taken because the Christians had dared to refer to their event as a ‘Call to Prayer’. Apparently, only Muslims may now use this term [...]

There is a lot of falsehoods being peddled in that sentence.

Buchanon - false
teaching creationism in public schools - false
abortion - false

Dont know about her foreign policy knowledge...and my guess is that fellow doesnt either with any amount of certainty to pronounce...."total ignorance"

Pretty sad.


I know you enjoy the literary comparisons.

On a quick glance, it seems to be saying that the Pro Abortionists Progressives are just as puritanical and mobbish as the Puritans of the Scarlet Letter....which is very true, and totally lost on the Left. They stare at you with blank stares and call you an brainwashed hick(from Alaska).

LOL!

Good Day, Noga!

Couple of quick notes.

Palin at AIPAC: That Didn’t Take Long

MSNBC and the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) are reporting that Gov. Palin met this afternoon with the board of directors of the America Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and Sen. Joe Lieberman to, in the words of one McCain campaign official cited by MSNBC, put “the American Jewish community at ease over her understanding of US-Middle East relations.” It’s worth noting that Palin, who has obviously been completely off-limits to reporters since she was rolled out as McCain’s running-mate in Dayton Friday, stiffed a reception in her honor sponsored by none other than Phyllis Schlafly a couple hours later. (One wonders what other lobbies have tried to arrange a meeting with Palin in the last 96 hours and with what success.)

“We had a good productive discussion on the importance of the U.S.-Israel relationship, and we were pleased that Gov. Palin expressed her deep, personal, and lifelong commitment to the safety and well-being of Israel,” AIPAC spokesman Josh Block said after the meeting. “Like Sen. McCain, the vice presidential nominee understands and believes in the special friendship between the two democracies and would work to expand and deepen the strategic partnership in a McCain/Palin Administration.”

“She was extremely well received,” McCain campaign spokesman Michael Goldfarb said, noting that Palin was interrupted by applause twice,” according to the JTA account. He added that Palin spoke about “the relationship between Israel and American national security, and the threats to Israel from Iran and others.”

Evidence of nervousness in the McCain campaign about Palin’s impact on Jewish voters and donors was made clear when the Likudist Republican Jewish Coalition circulated a video of her Alaska office in which it found a small Israeli flag, in the words of Politico, “poking out from behind a drape.”

“I think it speaks volumes that she keeps an Israeli flag on the wall of her office,” RJC’s executive director, Matt Brooks, told Politico in an e-mail. “It clearly shows what’s in her heart.” Politico’s analysis is well worth reading. As I noted Friday, a Nexis search of the two years previous to her selection as McCain’s running-mate failed to find a single published article in which Palin ever mentioned Israel. I suspect it may make it into her acceptance speech Wednesday night.


I saw the video the other day. Im sure you can find it.



The Indecent Left strutin their stuff.

Oh please. She supported Forbes in 1996 and 2000, not Buchanan. These rumors are exaggerated and destructive to her character.

If you disagree with her stance on social issues, then fine, but spreading rumors around to make Palin into some Buchananite is absurd.
