Eggs, shoes hurled at Obama poster during TA protest

Protesters threw eggs and shoes at a poster of US President Barack Obama in Tel Aviv on Monday, at protest against what organizers call the “brutal” treatment of Israel by the Obama administration.

The demonstration, which was held on the Tel Aviv promenade across the street from the US Embassy, was attended by a few dozen people, including far-right activist Baruch Marzel and organizer Ori Bar-Am.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One would have hardly expected less from the world's first self-declared 21st century theocracy!

Obama is absolutely desperate to see these talks not implode until after the November election. After the election, watch this issue just vanish from his agenda.

But I do have a concrete recommendation for "President Semblance"; if the Israeli people believe that they have a Biblically justified right to all the territory they have conquered (and all they intend to conquer), there is absolutely no hope in hell for a semblance of of peace between the Israelis and Palestinians, and no hope for a Palestinian state.

The US, therefore, has been stuck in the loop of a thoroughly futile exercise, and has invested staggering amounts of financial and geopolitical capital toward something that cannot happen.

What the US should do, right now, is immediately stop all financial and military aid to Israel: that aid has been illegal since the passage of the Symington Amendment anyway.

This money should be used instead to rebuild our country's crumbling infrastructure, and taking care of our wounded Vets, who have laid their lives on the line in public wars primarily for private profit.

Of course, that would be logical.
