To Whom Does The Land of Israel Belong?




Subj: To Whom Does The Land of Israel Belong? An Israeli Sense of Humor at UN set the record straight.

An ingenious example of speech and politics occurred recently in the United Nations Assembly and made the world community smile.

A representative from Israel began: 'Before beginning my talk I want to tell you something about Moses: When he struck the rock and it brought forth water, he thought, 'What a good opportunity to have a bath!'

Moses removed his clothes, put them aside on the rock and entered the water. When he got out and wanted to dress, his clothes had vanished. A Palestinian had stolen them!

The Palestinian representative at the UN jumped up furiously and shouted, 'What are you talking about? The Palestinians weren't there then.'

The Israeli representative smiled and said, 'And now that we have made that clear, I will begin my speech..'

A question from a bartender ...... redux




A black guy,



an illegal alien,



a muslim,



and a communist



walk into a bar.


The bartender asks,



"What can I get you Mr. President? "


Okay! Okay! So it ain't PC and isn't correct. But it does kinda ring a bell, eh?

wow .... so funny.

Just out of curiosity, Jim, since you acknowledge it "ain't PC and isn't correct", but then immediately say it "has a rin of truth" to it, ...

... which parts have the "ring of truth", Jim?

I mean, since everyone already knows he's a "black guy", which parts do you think have a "ring of truth" to them, and which parts are your usual .............. well, .........

... LIES.

Heh, heh, heh ...

Now Yman, don’t be getting all lathered up here when I don’t immediately answer your questions. I’ll get to’em but I do have other things going on.

Now, let me see. “Ring of truth.”

Well, laying aside that he is black, his early life was spent in a country that is predominantly Muslim and his fathers were Muslim, although that ended around the age of 10. Does that mean he is a Muslim? No, but even he noted that his background gave him a unique ability to solve problems. Does that explain why his interview in France made the infamous claim that based on numbers America was one of the largest Muslim countries in the world? Or does it explain why in his speech in Egypt he claimed that there were 7 million Muslims in the US?? (PEW says the number is around 2.35 million.) And why did he go out of his way in Turkey to explain that America is not a Christian nation? We were formed based on Western civilization concepts heavily influenced by Christianity and a vast majority consider ourselves a Christian nation, but proud of our secular government that protects the rights of minorities?

Link

Was he just pandering?? If so, why? Why didn’t he take the opportunity to tell them who we are. Why the false impression???

Would a “ring of truth” indicate his belief in what should be?????????

Communist? When I view Obama I reminded of the joke that was circulating in Denver shortly after the fall of the Soviet Union. The joke was:

“What is the difference between Boulder and Russia?”

And the answer is: “There are no communists in Russia.”

(To help you understand, Boulder is the home of the University of Colorado and is well known as a center of socialist/Marxist teaching.)

Not to mention Joe the Plumber’s answer from candidate Obama…


BTW - This is me.

Quit making things up. I mean if I were you I would say, quit telling lies.... But I'm not and I answered your comment at 8:11AM

Wait, I just found your comment. My software system decided it was spam and consigned it to the spam locker.... Seeing as how spam is useless unhelpful stuff I can see how the software dumped you.

But I wouldn't want to not let you have your say, so:

So a "ring of truth" means it's okay to suggest someone is a Muslim or Communist, based on the fact that YOU think they make comments sympathetic to Muslims or based on a joke you heard - as long as you make some generic disclaimer that some part of the fairy tale "ain't PC and isn't correct". Funny how you dropped the birther part of the "joke" ... as though that's going to make your silly story more credible.

Heh.

C'mon, Jim - don't be afraid to embrace your inner TPer! You can cheer for the death of the uninsured! You can boo gay soldiers serving overseas! You can call the President a Muslim, illegal alien, communist, "black guy" without being ashamed! He//, listening to those comments, why not just bring up your favorite fairy tale about Shariah law - you could claim he wants to bring Shariah law to the White House!

What?

You think those don't accurately represent your positions? Awwweeeeeeee .. c'mon. Based on your comments, while they might not be "PC or correct", ...

... I'd say they have a "ring of truth" to them.

Heh, heh, heh ...

BTW - I know it's you, Jim, as is obvious from my responses. I just think it's funny that you post under "anonymous", rather than using your (already fake) screen name.

Now I know that you love to make things up. But when you say that I have booed gay soldiers serving overseas, or anywhere for that matter, well, that dear Yman is a flat out lie. Sorry to stoop to your level but I didn’t want you to misunderstand my comment. Long before DADT I served with gay sailors and this may shock you, there were no problems. One I knew got into trouble for his actions off base and two for their actions with each other on the base. Otherwise the gays didn’t say anything and the straights didn’t say anything. Sort of DADT in the Old Days.

And cheer for the death of the uninsured?? Really, you lie again and you know so because I have specially, here and in Talk Left, noted my support for a universal system modeled on Medicare. So I think you deserve my comments and this comment from Mr. Cat.


Now, I explained to you why the comments have a “ring of truth.” Rather than answer my points you revert to the old “How dare you say that about our President.” Why not address the issues?? Because you can’t. Read the link I provided it proves what I said.

As to why I use Anonymous, not that it is any of your business, but there is a technical issue that when I try to sign in remotely it doesn’t work. So there you are. Got any other BS complaints you want to make about something that is none of your business?

Anyway, thanks for playing and proving that you don’t know how to debate…. But then we knew that.
