I have founda new favorite blog

Daled Amos.  It is fast becoming one of my favorite blogs!

Why?  Because of articles like this:

Global Jihad
Which is more violent - Judaism, Christianity or Islam?

Very interesting reading.

65 years ago today

Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force!

You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have
striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The
hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you.
In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on
other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war
machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of
Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.

Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well
equipped and battle hardened. He will fight savagely.

But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of
1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats,
in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their
strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home
Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions
of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men.
The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to
Victory!

I have full confidence in your courage and devotion to duty and skill in
battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory!

Good luck! And let us beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great
and noble undertaking.


SIGNED: Dwight D. Eisenhower

Emergency Drill

Did you know Israel had an emergency drill - a dry run in the event attack or nuke attack.  Yep they did. 

Here is a story I found from Life in Israel - very interesting.

RIP Kill Bill

David Carradine has passed away.  In a very very odd way.

Of course the MSM hasnt covered the rather odd details..but Ace has it and so do other bloggers:

Here is Ace's post:

David Carradine Dies in Bangkok Hotel-Room Closet, Hanged in Possible Case of Sexual Asphyxia

Naked, hanging in a closet.

By the way, the "sexual asphyxia" thing is my gloss, not something the media is reporting. It's speculation only by me, but it sure seems hinted at.

Kill Bill and Kung Fu star David Carradine has been found dead in a Bangkok hotel room on Thursday.

Thai police told the BBC the 72-year-old was found naked by a hotel maid in a wardrobe with a cord around his neck and other parts of his body.

Maybe he was just doing research:

The US star was in Thailand filming his latest film, Stretch...

Moe Lane says the original story did not say the cord was wrapped around "other parts of his body," but was more specific. I'm trying to find out if he's joking, but I don't think he is.

Update: Moe wasn't kidding. I didn't think he was, but you never know.

Here's how the story went out earlier.

Thai police told the BBC the 72-year-old was found by a hotel maid sitting in a wardrobe with a rope around his neck and genitals on Thursday morning.

The "sitting" part also seems to scream "auto-erotic sexual asphyxia." Another accidental hanging.

I do not get this kink. Authorities estimate that 200 people die per year due this practice, almost half of those on Law & Order: SVU alone.

Roy asks...

That wasn't a pebble they found in his hand?

joncelli...

Okay, the guy is in a city infamous for its sexual debauchery, all of which a wealthy actor could have obtained with his pocket change, and he dies while asphyxiating the weasel? Now that is a genuinely stupid way to go.

He didn't risk AIDS this way. So he's got that going for him.

Obama throws Israel under the bus

I am just coping this post from Ace.  It summarizes the speech just perfectly.  The core is simple - Obama is anti-Israel.

More Cairo: On One Hand, There's the Holocaust; On the Other Hand, There's What Jews Are Doing to Palestinians Every Day

Yup. Big applause line, I'm sure.

Erick Erickson has a problem with the "on the other hand" phraseology here, suggesting that the Holocaust and the Palestinian's war on Israel are two sides of the same issue.

Around the world, the Jewish people were persecuted for centuries, and anti-Semitism in Europe culminated in an unprecedented Holocaust. Tomorrow, I will visit Buchenwald, which was part of a network of camps where Jews were enslaved, tortured, shot and gassed to death by the Third Reich. Six million Jews were killed - more than the entire Jewish population of Israel today. Denying that fact is baseless, ignorant, and hateful. Threatening Israel with destruction - or repeating vile stereotypes about Jews - is deeply wrong, and only serves to evoke in the minds of Israelis this most painful of memories while preventing the peace that the people of this region deserve.

On the other hand, it is also undeniable that the Palestinian people - Muslims and Christians - have suffered in pursuit of a homeland. For more than sixty years they have endured the pain of dislocation. Many wait in refugee camps in the West Bank, Gaza, and neighboring lands for a life of peace and security that they have never been able to lead. They endure the daily humiliations - large and small - that come with occupation. So let there be no doubt: the situation for the Palestinian people is intolerable. America will not turn our backs on the legitimate Palestinian aspiration for dignity, opportunity, and a state of their own.

A better "on one hand/on the other hand" would have compared... oh, let's say the suffering of the Palestinians to the suffering the Palestinians impose on the Israelis through constant murder and rocket attacks.

It's not like Obama had to go back 60 years to find some Jewish suffering. He could have gone back to last week.

Yid with Lid says Obama threw Israel under the bus.

Jordan - the True Palestinian state

Now, this article is very interesting for one specific reason.  It simply does not discuss the defacto situation in from 1949 - 1967.  When Jordan WAS the defacto Palestinian State.  Jordan controlled the West Bank - Egypt Gaza.  What changed in 1967 - oh..Israel kicked the fuck out of Jordan, Egypt, Syria and Lebanon (and other countries.).  What is telling is that Jordan does not want to retake control of the West Bank.  I think we all know why.

I think this proposal is a good one and valid - Egypt to retake control in Gaza - and if Israel is unwilling to annex Judea and Samaria then Jordan should re-incorporate it.  Though - I am a far bigger fan of Israel annexation of the territories.
