The man has some valid points, however he needs to get some fresh ideas, some contained in the Andrew Klavan vid
Jews controlling the whole Middle East would be self-defeating, because as a democracy, Jews would be quickly voted out of power in favor of radicals who would want to exterminate us. But we can compromise and just annex Judah and Shomron, where we could maintain a majority by virtue of immigration, and a rabbinical decree permitting polygamy for those brave enough to have more than one mother-in-law. A regrettable, but necessary sacrifice.
The Arabs have no idea what democracy is... sure they can parrot the words, but it goes well beyond one man, one vote. And that is where democracy stops for them. They have no concept of its heritage, the years of political and religious thought that went into it... and the freedoms, rights, liberties and culture that goes with it.
Much of this explains why they are so backwards... the bitterness is based on the fact that Israel stole their ability, opportunity, their success and their love....
The part that gets me is Obama marketing the Arab Spring as a democracy movement... and he knows better (Islam is antithetical to democracy) and the western world is seemingly buying into the big lie.
All his efforts are as a caliphate community organizer and America is paying for its demise....which is not good! The immediate focus for phase one of the caliphate is unfortunately, Israel
I don’t know if you have seen this, another perspective,,,,
In other news, rain remains wet.
“Lack of Peace is a Threat to Israel”
Brilliant!!! Why didn’t anyone think of this before!
That Harvard education was worth every penny.
The Pope is also Catholic. Up is the opposite direction of down, and the sun rises in the East.
If only Israel would sign a piece agreement, there would be piece.
You don’t say?
And stating the obvious advances what?
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
What is your problem with Mr Ferguson?
His last statement is that political change in US and Europe could shift [improve] attitudes toward Israel. He says the Obama administration is “the least sympathetic toward Israel since the foundation of Israel.”
IMO he gets it. I wish Harvard taught that. He is from the UK and a great mind.
Here is another very good vid... particularly at the 6:35-40 mark. It makes a liar out of allah.... or his followers....
