As usual, Congressman Nadler is well-informed, calm and thoughtful. Just call him the un-Trump.
Anti-Semitic activists have been pushing phony eviction notices under the the dorm room doors of Jewish undergrads at NYU. The notices included the following:
If you do not vacate the premise by midnight on 25 April, 2014, we reserve the right to destroy all remaining belongings.We cannot be held responsible for property or persons remaining inside the premises. Charges for demolition will be applied to your student accounts.
And here’s the tepid response of NYU mouthpiece John Beckman:
A flier titled ‘eviction notice’ anonymously slipped under doors at night is not an invitation to thoughtful, open discussion.
Thanks, John. I’m glad you cleared that up.
In a genius PR move, the Israeli embassy has announced that “5 Broken Cameras, ” an Oscar-nominated documentary on Israel’s settlement expansion on the West Bank, is an Israeli film. In response, directors Emad Burnat (a Palestinian, whatever that means) and Guy Davidi (Israeli) claim “This is a Palestinian documentary” and that Israel is trying to use it “to show the good face of Israel.”
Those who demonize Israel can just Bite Me already.
From the NY Daily News 11/19/2012:
“We will not accept a ceasefire until the occupation meets our conditions,” said Izzat Rishaq, a senior Hamas official. Ziad Nakhleh, deputy leader of Islamic Jihad, told the Al Hayat daily it was time to teach Israel a lesson. “We don’t fear them. The resistance is too strong and capable of confronting them,” said Nakhleh. “We hit the belly of Israel.”
It’s the kind of chutzpah you expect from a sabra.
