Mr. I on TheWestWingWeekly podcast today.....

Hi all. I have not been here in years but had to come back to let you know that Mr. Isaacs was on the West Wing Weekly podcast today, talking about the two episodes he did in the fifth season of the series "The West Wing." (I'm a big fan of the podcast so have been waiting for them to do those episo...

Re: Dig Series

I don't think Jews at the Western Wall is land grab. Jerusalem was meant to be an international zone, because its so important to 3 religions. The Jews are absolutely right to be at the Western Wall. Why do you indicate that I mean things that I've never expressed in any way? Maybe Hebron should ha...

Re: Dig Series

No, this is a break-off of the "Dig" discussion, and it's in the Political Material forum specifically because the discussion in the "Dig" section was not supposed to get political. And that only got political because folks are all over Mr. I's Instagram feeds doing the "you're supporting the occupa...

Re: Dig Series

Sigh. Last point. You asked where Israel thinks it's going? Israel has been trying to go nowhere. To live in peace. To get negotiations from the day right after the '67 war. When it offered the entirety of the land it had conquered in that war back to those it had conquered it from (Egypt and Jordan...

Re: Dig Series

And your comment about Peace Now's idea is actually one that each Israeli gov't (including Binyamin Netanyahu, who is not now nor has ever been my candidate for PM) has proposed: It's called land swaps. And the land swaps are just that, swapping land from within the "Green Line" border for the large...

Re: Dig Series

thunder, the rabbi you spoke to doesn't speak for all Jews or Israelis any more than Abu Hamza alMasri speaks for all Muslims or Arabs. First. Second, the history lesson is very nice but not necessary. You left out the bit that the Arabs only came to Palestine as an occupying, conquering army in the...

Re: Dig Series

Oh, thunder, I wouldn't argue with you one huge point: that Israel is appreciating the opportunity to whomp Hamas but good. (That's an American colloquialism meaning to "do the job thoroughly," as opposed to a value judgment of good vs. bad.) Fatah is surely happy about the opportunity Israel has to...

Re: Dig Series

I'm not saying things are equal, but I try to stick to the facts before I make up my mind, And I find this situation confusing. There are Jewish settler groups on the West Bank that conducts terror attacks against Palestinians and even the IDF which are there to protect them. It's not a black and w...

Re: Dig Series

thunder, I know it's always the heart wanting to say "both sides" this, that, and the other. But there are no Jewish groups that would do this. And nobody on the Jewish side orchestrated this. My 16yo son hitchhikes to his school, too. He does it as the standard operating procedure of all kids who h...

Re: Dig Series

The only denials have been from the Palestinian government .... the Palestinian Authority and Hamas. The Palestinian Authority has denied involvement but is participating in the search for them within the West Bank. Hamas denies it is involved, but is handing out sweets on the streets. And several P...

Re: Dig Series

Is it confirmed they have been kidnapped by Palestinians now? I can't find any source that say that... Is US Sec'y of State John Kerry enough of a source? Using an Egyptian English news page for the link, just to cover all the bases .... http://thecairopost.com/news/115029/news/indications-hamas-in...

Re: Instagram

In', it has nothing to do with "left" or "right." So don't do the "slammed by the left" thing.

Hmm. Think I'm going to have to get an Instagram account just to respond to the comments.

Sigh.
