Exactly. One of the unavoidable flaws in an open system. In Israel's case, there are a lot of favors their government can do for our politicians. I am not sure but I have read the reverse is not true. The Christian Coalition or any other American group would not be allowed to lobby the Knesset the way AIPAC and the ADL lobbies our congress on the behalf of Israel.
How strange that the story should be on the UPI newsdesk on 6/18/2002, if they tried to peddle it in February 2001 :).
Sorry, this isn't corroborating anything, or providing evidence. It's just the uncorroborated story being repeated by presumably the same source (and don't give me an "UPI is reputable"-spiel :).
Follow the source. Mr. Sale seems to be sort of your twin, Mr. Lied ;)).
What is "Blow-Back"?
Read #78 again. You are discussing another article. You can do better than that to cloud the issue.
Reading the press releases from the ADL, AJC, NCJW on school vouchers this week was depressing. All as liberal as ever. More so even. They lost a big one and are determined to fight.
Noted your comment I think this speaks for itself
Maybe I'm dumb, but it tells me very little, other than Israel engaged in routine "enemy of my enemy" tactics a few decades ago.
What does it "speak" to you that makes it timely?
Must be just as depressing to read your Unitarian Church newsletter.
Err.. I think that if you take the time to read (you CAN read?) you'll see that I'm saying that it doesn't appear to be on any reputable news outlets. I really don't care much if it has ot one time appeared with UPI, or if it does today.
you seem to concede that it is legit
You seem to be somewhat slow. Let's take this slowly :).
Sale, the reporter and sole source basically says this happened. There is no corroborating evidence - Cordesman, another appendage to the jihad-infested washington-report, offers his speculation and Sale refers vaguely to various sources (anonymous official 1, 2, whatever). There is nothing whatsoever verifiable, and if there had been the other news-agencies would probably have picked it up in February 2001. Instead we see a campaign coming up to spam it around in 2002. Strange.
Now, of course I don't for a moment actually think that you are as bizarrely stupid as you're playing at :)). I do note, however, that you seem to be another one of these strange critters registered in '98,'99 who suddenly pops out of the woodwork when the ranks of "pinlighters" wear thin.
Same old story, slightly reworded but with Mr. Sale's theatrical opening line intact, by the same author who appears on CODOH, Hoffman-info et al for his writings on "Stalin's Communist Jews" - he seems exactly like you, Mr. Lied.
Tell me, are you or have you ever been a reporter? Did you at one point write a book?
I can laugh at the UU's. None of them is in Congress to filibuster drilling in ANWR, they don't send out CD-ROM's of people they don't like to law enforcement and the FBI doesn't require agents to take courses sponsored by the Unitarian church.
But they aren't credible either.
Given that eleven out of ten BBC whining heads seem to be pakistanis and the rest simpering commies in the mold of that Fisk guy, I'd say probably not :). In any case, bbc conjecture is probably no more "evidence" than your fellow codoh-traveller Sale, wouldn't you say?
Anyway, you didn't answer any questions, Lied. I notice that you never do. Were you once upon a time a reporter?
