• David Remnick’s dispatch from the Saban Institute in Washington, D.C. includes an interview with Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad. [TNY]

Gawker should include themselves on this list, since they also post anti-Semitic threads on their website as well.

Amazing. Europe ‘saids’ its supports a land for peace deal where Israel will annex small sections of the West Bank, but swap parts of Israel proper for the deal and yet the part of the WB in which Israel would keep aka E-1, they renounce. Its like they are either lying about their support of Israel or are just that stupid.

PhillipNagle says:

If it were up to Britain there would have been no Israel and the French arabs are an integral part of the Socialist party that now rules France. Israel should expect very little from either one.

Hershl says:

These Europeans states have Jewish blood dripping from their hands and, yes, that includes the UK which has a long time history of Jew hatred.

I am so proud of Israel for finally saying enough is enough and just doing what we need to do anyway.

Build, baby, build.

From the Jordan to the Mediterranean.

Let the Pals live in Ramallah and Gaza and that’s the end of this whole mess.

They could have gotten 90% of the West Bank but now will get virtually nothing.

Couldn’t happen to nicer people.

fred capio says:

some Jews criticise the government of Israel while, at the same time, suggest we ought to listen to the “oh so competent” leaders of Britain and France (and USA) That is so stupid, it hurts
