- Does this make me look Arafat? A Jewish Londoner asks the Guardian fashion columnist why his daughter wants to dress like Yasser. Meanwhile, there is a new curseword on the German schoolyards.
- The e-x-t-r-e-m-e right-wing politics behind Facebook.
- Rupert, who has been particularly mouthy recently, tells us all about the British plot to overthrow the Italian government in the 1970s. The funny thing is that I remember the plot as being American (the “lucid superpower”), much more than merely a plan, and started much earlier. Rupert’s headline is more accurate than the body of the article. You have to wonder whether the planned dissolution of Belgium is part of this ongoing program.
- I haven’t commented on the silliness in the Straits of Hormuz. The fact that it was the U. S. Navy that debunked the initial reports, reports that the Jew-controlled American media blew up out of all proportion, proves both that there are still no-hoper Christian Zionists in the Pentagon trying to start the Apocalypse, and that the NIE – Bush notwithstanding – still represents full American foreign and military policy. There will not be an attack on Iran. As I’ve been saying for months and months and months.
- Israeli pianist/conductor/educator Daniel Barenboim has acquired Palestinian citizenship.
- Interesting comments by David Irving on Bush’s tearful musings about bombing Auschwitz. The Americans hurried to clarify that Bush really meant the rail lines, but Bush, who has a wicked sense of humor, probably meant exactly what he said. Meanwhile, a British Jew is genuinely perplexed that there are values that can’t be monetized.
