Meddling in Israeli Elections

NY Times, Bibi, Netanyahu, Thomas Friedman, Elections, media, Israel, politics,When doing a cartoon, sometimes an old joke or punch line comes in handy. Like today.

For the Friedman story click on https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/09/opinion/netanyahu-trump.html

Tomorrow I'm off to a lung doctor to verify (I hope) that my post pneumonia lungs are now clear (as my family doctor tells me). But I'm still on oxygen most of the time, so I don't really understand what's going on. The LSW (Long Suffering Wife) who has been in a body brace for some time also seems to be recovering from her troubles. All we have to worry about now is staying afloat financially.

Saw the Doctor today. He listened to my lungs and said that they were clear. Hurray! He also said that to continue my recovery from pneumonia I've got to get off my butt and start walking. I fully intend to do so. But best intentions remain just intentions. I've got to force myself.

Ethiopian Israelis demand Equality

Ethiopians, demonstrations, rioting,Israel, According to Algemeiner:
Protesters Block Major Road Junctions Across Israel After Ethiopian Teen Killed by Cop

Thousands of Israelis of Ethiopian descent and their supporters staged sit-down protests at major road junctions throughout the country on Tuesday after a member of the immigrant community was shot dead by police.

Around 20,000 Ethiopian Jews, who trace their roots to the biblical King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, were brought to Israel on secret flights in the mid-1980s and early 1990s. But they have at times complained of racist discrimination.

On Saturday, 18-year-old Solomon Tekah was shot dead in the northern city of Haifa by an off-duty policeman. The policeman said he drew his gun while trying to intervene in a brawl between two groups of youths, who ended up turning against him. A police spokesman said the officer who carried out the shooting had been arrested pending an investigation.

A Plan B for Donald Trump?

Deal of the Century,Hamas, PLO, Iran,Arabs, Palestinians, Peace agreement, Middle East, Trump, Gaza, West Bank, Israel, If Hamas and the PLO (the twin oppressors of the Palestinian Arabs) reject the "Deal of the Century", then maybe Trump should consider a "Plan B"!

According to David Singer in J-Wire :

Trump should champion legal migration from West Bank and Gaza

President Trump should consider championing legal, voluntary and financially-assisted emigration from Gaza and the West Bank by calling on Jordan and Egypt to open their border crossings and grant residency status to Gazan and West Bank Arabs seeking a better future for themselves and their families.

Such action is certainly justified following the rejection of President Trump’s offer to inject US$6.5 billion into the West Bank and Gaza – with both Hamas and the PLO telling Trump they were not prepared to accept any financial assistance coming out of the Manama Conference jointly convened last week by Trump and Bahrain.-more

If you had a plan to fight antisemitism and stop the BDS rewriting of Jewish history, how's it going for you? Maybe it's time for a Plan B? Maybe it's time to support Dry Bones? Click on https://drybonesproject.com/365.

Entebbe Day

Entebbe, Uganda, 4th of July, Entebbe Day, On June 27, 1976, four terrorists forced an Air France Airbus to land in Uganda, in the heart of distant Africa. The hijackers freed the French crew and in a Nazi-like selection, separated Jews from non-­Jewish passengers. They released the non-Jews and kept 105 Jewish and Israeli hostages.The hijackers demanded that Israel release 53 convicted terrorists. A deadline was set before executions would begin.
The grim news haunted us daily. July 3 1976, like all the days since June 27, was a dark, seemingly hopeless and depressing day. And then it was the 4th of July.
Those of us who here on that amazing day, July 4. 1976, will never forget the lifting of the weight from our hearts, or the joy that suddenly broke through with the news of the IDF rescue of the hostages.

Now, 43 years later, the echo of that wonderful day still brightens my soul. A 4th of July has never passed since 1976 that I haven't celebrated Entebbe Day.

For those who weren't here then, you can find the bare facts at https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/the-entebbe-rescue-operation

Entebbe Day would be a really good time to support Dry Bones and his Long Suffering Wife. Please click on https://drybonesproject.com/365
