Mossad head wants Ahmedinjad as President

( Iran andIsrael )

Amazing The reality in Iran is not going to change because of the elections. The world and we already know [Iranian President Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad. If the reformist candidate [Mir Hossein] Mousavi had won, Israel would have had a more serious problem because it would need to explain to the world the danger of the Iranian [...]

Connect the dots

You know, I've read Mohamed's post on Israeli-Egyptian relations after 30 years, and…meh…not because his stuff doesn't make sense or is well-thought, because it is..but generally because when it comes to middle-east politics (from Israeli-Palestinian relations to AlBashir in Sudan), it's always best to ignore what people say, and focus on what they do instead. [...]

Lieberman as Israeli foreign minister

( Israel )

I think I am the only arab excited by the notion of having Lieberman as the new Israeli Foreign minister, but then again, humor and anarchy excite me, and there is nothing funnier than having Mr. "Let's nuke the Aswan damn" be the next Israeli FM. I mean, can you imagine the hilarity that will [...]

Everyone is a winner..

( Israel )

Kadima won most seats, Likud has a better chance at a coalition, and they are both fighting on who gets to duck Lieberman's dick better. Barak, however, didn't win, which is good, because he is a douche. Also, I hear that the peace camp lost, like there was one to begin with. There is of [...]

Oh Lieberman

( A.P.U. andIsrael )

The Israeli general election is underway today. It's actually happening right now, and it features some of the most boring and bizzare political players in modern day Israel: You have the boring insecure Barack representing what's left of labor, The pompous inept Netenyahu trying to make Likus (not sure if this is a typo) big [...]

The Israelis are punishing Turkey

( Israel )

By cancelling hotel reservations in Antaliya. I am guessing Thailand is overbooked now!

On Bibi’s accomplishments

( Israel )

I have signaled in the past my great disdain for Bibi, and was surprised that some of my israeli readers were actually highly considering him in the coming elections. Now, I do have my sympathies for those who might be leaning his way, because, let's face it, all of your choices are shit, but come [...]

On the Lost God of Palestine

His name is Pales, and the entire country is named after him, and he was celebrated by both the jews and the cananites (arab grandparents) of the time. And check this out, he was a Bi-sexual Ass-God (Ass meaning Donkey, of course). Pales was also the name of the "Ass-God" of ancient Cannan, and Babylon [...]

Just so you know

Hamas just rejected the egyptian Truce draft. While hostilities are not yet resumed, until actual negotiations start, war might break out again. Do you care? I am not sure I do at the moment. If you are sick of the whole thing, the Onion has an Op-Ed for you!

Index finger in each ear!

I am gonna ignore the fighting in Ghaza. Not gonna acknowledge the fighting in Ghaza. There is no fighting erupting again in Ghaza. I caaaan't heeeear youuuu! lalalalalalalalaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa (Don't you people ever get bored? Why can't you watch American Idol like the rest of us? What do you think of the new Judge? I like her. She [...]

It was all for nothing

( Israel )

Poor Livni. It seems that despite bombing the shit out of Ghaza and killing over 1000 people, she is still going to lose that election to Netenyahu. Arab readers, I am sure your hearts are bleeding for her. I know my heart is. Totally!

And the winner of the Ghaza conflict is..

Hosny Mubarak. I know, I know, I am shocked too. But check this out: 1) He managed to sideline Qatar and Syria and the Iranian allies in the region, despite the huge pressure they put on him, and made Egypt the most important player in the palestinian Israeli conflict again (ironically, thanks in part to that same pressure), 2) [...]

The origin of “Israel controls America” conspiracies

Usually from stories like these: The United States, Israel's main ally, had initially been expected to voted in line with the other 14 but Rice later became the sole abstention. "In the night between Thursday and Friday, when the secretary of state wanted to lead the vote on a ceasefire at the Security Council, we [...]

For your consideration

Given that my new status, according to some of my readers, as an "Anti-israel propagandist", I would like to invite you all to read this piece of Anti-Israel propaganda, provided by Ynet news: Earlier this week, Time Magazine claimed that Israel cannot defeat Hamas. As usual, Time is wrong. Of course Israel can win. Hamas is not a [...]

Israeli missile falls in Egypt’s side of the border

( Egypt andIsrael )

Here we go again!

We must be a bad influence on Israel

( A.P.U. andIsrael )

How else would you explain the "region's only democracy's"™ decision to ban arab parties from running in the next elections? I thought only we did that!

In response

( Egypt andIsrael )

Reading some of the comments on my previous post was incredibly amusing, so I figured a proper response here is warranted. Let's go over this, shall we? 1) For those who say we don't do enough to protect the border, well, let's see. First of all, we have a very limited number of security forces in [...]

You done fucked up now, Israel!

( Egypt andIsrael )

Israel has just bombed our side of the border, injuring 2 egyptian officers and 2 Children. Needless to say, this constitutes a very clear violation of the camp David treaty, especially that their planes have been invading our airspace a lot lately. Now, unless Israel wishes for open war with Egypt, and god knows we would [...]

On Facebook Status warfare

Beyond the Blame Egypt crowd and their cheerleaders, beyond the images of dead babies and the money being raised through them, beyond the stupidity of Israel's leaders statements on the winability of this War and those who believe them, the most recent, most annoying and most retarded by-product of the current Hamas-Israel conflict has to be the flurry of [...]

Rockets fired on Israel from Southern Lebanon

( Israel andLebanon )

Oh Boy.. A Katyusha barrage was fired Thursday at the Nahariya area in the Western Galilee. Police reported that two people were lightly wounded and evacuated to the local hospital. Several residents were treated for shock. Police sappers received reports of three rocket hits, one in town and two others in open fields nearby. Update: [...]
