John and Ban’s Not-So-Excellent Cairo Adventure

You know you’re living in mundo bizarro when Egyptian strongman Abdel Fattah el-Sisi sounds (and is!) more reasonable than the U.S. secretary of State and the UN secretary general.

But that’s the way it is in this best of all possible worlds with John Kerry and Ban Ki-moon rocketing to Cairo to bring about a ceasefire in the latest Gaza War before Israel does something so rash as finally obliterating the murderous religious psychopaths of Hamas.  Heaven forfend!

El-Sisi undoubtedly knows better, as do numerous relatively more silent types like the Saudis and the Jordanians, all — or anyway most — of whom would like to see Hamas and its Muslim Brotherhood-Iran allies brought low, not to mention IS/ISIS and the rest of the mad Sunni branch. The people who live there — the semi-normal ones anyway — know that the Middle East is in serious need of a swamp draining and the only ones capable of doing it are the Israelis.  The Americans  under Obama are so out to lunch that they might as well be opening a McDonald’s franchise on Alpha Centauri.

Undeterred, John Kerry and Ban Ki-moon will be doing their level best to make sure that doesn’t happen — the swamp draining, that is.  So why the urge to preserve Hamas? In Ban’s case he represents an organization so anti-Semitic it makes the Wehrmacht seem like a lost branch of Hadassah.  The UN wouldn’t interrupt its endless and relentless anti-Israel attacks if the North Koreans were dropping a hydrogen bomb on Rikers Island.

As for Kerry, well, as we all know, he’s a man of peace and opposed to such thugs as the late Genghis Khan (pronounced Jen-giss, as in Little Richard’s “Jenny, Jenny“) but always wishes to reason with them first.  After all, a fella might win a Nobel Prize.  Or failing that, get the Democratic Party presidential nomination over Hillary, whose book isn’t selling.  Second time’s lucky.

I hope they enjoy their adventure. What counts most to me are:

1. 20,000 came to the funeral of the 'lone' soldier in Haifa yesterday. There are not lone soldiers in Israel's army, physical and symbolic;

2. Netanyahu has found the fullness of his resolve;

3. We are and will deal the Hamas a huge military blow. If followed up with similar political resolution, Gaza will be permanently quieted, or at least for a dozen years or so.

The Jewish people is resolved to survive. It is very strong, and Roger Simon is also evidence of that.

Kerry believes in an Irish Spring and he's bringing Ban with him to the armpit of the planet to scrub away the stench of 7th century barbarism.

What some people don't understand, Roger, is that Obama/Kerry support FULLY Israel's right to "defend" itself. The UN has also submitted a draft resolution that "the guilty Zionists are not forbidden from hiding from rockets hurled at them...yet".

Irish Spring Kerry is carrying Obama's message (and water) that Israel has a right to defend itself from rockets from Hamas. They have suggested that Israel's track team could run under falling rockets with large fishing nets to catch them. This would be a helluva pinpoint operation.

They could also build large corks to plug the holes burrowed under their country filled with asses with bombs strapped to them. And donkeys too.

Kerry feels that it is disproportionate to, you know, hit the sites where the rockets are being launched. He needs to get over there and give Israel a piece of his mind. A very generous gesture when there is so little to draw from.

After all, Kerry and Obama think that the Jihadists have on numerous occasions halted trying to kill Jews...and focused on killing Christians instead. Christians, if they ever decided to do anything, could be accused of disproportionate defense of themselves ...because billions vs billions has a proportionality.

The number of Jews in the world vs the number of their attackers...it can only become disproportionate when 100 million Islamists are hiding in bomb shelters and are surrounded by 50 Judeo-Christian countries cheering their destruction and passing out hot cross buns every time a teenager is kidnapped, raped and murdered.

Unfortunately, every Christian country in the West has elected a bunch of El Sissies of their own. So, they sit back and let Israel bear the brunt of having to fend off leftist propaganda and barbaric 7th century insanity.

Obama represents the interests of the Moslem Brotherhood not the United States. He has moved American foreign policy from Israel as ally to Israel as enemy. He is doing everything in his power to save Hamas. He is withholding information vital to Israel's security.

Obama has introduced Euro style anti-semitism into the body politic of the American government.
It will not be long before the Jews in America feel like the Jews in France.

Israel needs to put an end to Hamas as a threat, because they will have bigger fish to fry if ISIS consolidates control over territory.

It's not a bazaar world anymore. Bazaar world implies that it is people simply doing weird things to be weird. I argue that it is mundo muerto.

Here's my solution: Give Rhode Island to the Jewish people. Everybody wins - The US gains notable wealth and the Muslims can vent their angst in internecine genocide.

Tongue out of cheek, the conflict between Islam and the rest of the world has been going on for 1,500 years. It will end only when one side obliterates the other. That's not my analysis, it's what Islam has said from the very beginning.

Since Dar al-Harb rightly finds this solution abhorrent we must hope for a Providential intervention. That may be at hand.

If David Goldman's assessment is correct (it usually is) then the Arab world teeters on the brink of famine. Their agriculture is woefully inadequate to feed their vastly expanded population. It isn't helped by the growing chaos. They must import a very large amount of their food (Egypt - 50%). They have, to date, financed these imports by oil, tourism and foreign aid.

Well, tourism has gone bye-bye. Foreign aid flowed into the region for two reasons: geo-political jockeying during the Cold War and access to oil. The Cold War is over and we are seeing residual effects. The recent dramatic increase in oil and gas production, due to technology, promises to really, really hurt oil revenues.

With hunger comes chaos. That region is going to get ugly. And there is nothing the world can do except batten the hatches and watch in horror.

FWIW..Israel is approximately the size of New Jersey...their dimensions are similar, too...and they have comparable populations.

New Jersey's fine by me but Rhode Island is arguably prettier.

Wow, I'm just clapping for joy re Kerry/Obama's brilliant peace efforts. Today he will give Hamas 47 million dollars for what ever reason he's invented. Tomorrow he will let in another 10,000 Hamas into this country, as a humanitarian effort (remember he did just that last time). I haven't felt this kind of warmth since the last Shirley Temple movie I saw.

Let's Americans forget the U.N. and stop being its main financial cache. [!] We're being laughed at by the anti-Ameddican[sic] majority there, and elsewhere.

As a matter of fact, a 98.6% cessation of our financial contributions across this Earth years ago might very well have led to a quieter Earth, as too much of our cash is blatantly diverted to third party bank accounts offshore of the intended recipients, and that cash plus as our military materiel is apparently routinely captured and diverted and then ultimately used against us, so, in effect we are seeding our enemies.

This Worldwide diversion of our resources is a hydra-headed enemy in and of itself, ecumenical, trans-border, equal opportunity, multi-cultural.

What have we accomplished after we enabled the hanging of Saddam? Look at Libya after Qaddafi. Egypt after....after...after.....on and on and on.

Now it's yachting Kerry and smilin' Ban out on their latest B.S. "mission"

What? Long term, has been accomplished to our benefit?

We're being played for fools.

PS.
....this use of the provocative word "cash" apparently triggered that spam from tracychouston within seconds. ...now deleted?...thanks for whoever did that so promptly.

Guess we have to be even careful of using that fearsome word "cash", in whatever context. Everybody wants more.

If the Israelis are allowed to actually defeat Hamas, the total number of casualties will be reduced because Hamas will not be able to start the next five (or so) wars. Remember how important the 'precautionary principle' is to leftists when it comes to government control of personal and industrial use of energy (a.k.a. 'global warming' prevention)? Just apply it to this case where there is an actual threat.

On Gaza: See the story of Samson and Delilah in the Bible, Judges 16, "eyeless in Gaza."

With so much attention being paid to Gaza, no one mentions the story in the Bible about Samson and Delilah in Gaza, Judges 16, "eyeless in Gaza."

"But I’d probably be dreaming if they did something really amazing and showed a little moral fiber for once..."

You would be dreaming, just as DiFi was yesterday when she called for Barack to step up to the plate of world leadership. I guess public chastisement from a democrat Senator is supposed to make the Golfer in Chief feel shame, as he sets out for another 3 day jaunt of fundraising, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
