Israel's quandry

Some years back, Israel complained that the Palestinian leadership was too fractured, too insecure, and incapable of representing the entire collection of Palestine, ergo, talks would be pointless.

Now, with Palestine putting aside internal squabbles, unifying behind one government, Isreal complains that it cannot talk to those who make up some of the unified government.

It strikes me that Israel will say and do anything to avoid peace talks, and continually shift its positions should the Palestinians make the mistake of accepting some Israeli demand.

At some point, Israel has to recognize that it is losing support with its incredible stances, and that its reactionary positions do it no good long term.

"Obamacare" under attack as conservatives eye 2032 election

Having lost the race for president the last four elections, by ever widening margins, an obviously energized, yet grey-skinned and tottering Todd Cruz, former senator from Texas, who resigned after a sexy video of him and a very young female aide was accidentally released during a family values convention, announced his fifth run for president. His announcement was greeted with faint cheers and piped in sounds of applause.

The convention press observers mistakenly confused two life support attendants and one ICU elder care specialist assigned to the conference as members, instead of providing necessary care and the occasional cardiac stimulus to the 100 or so bed and wheelchair ridden actual attendees. After the misidentification, Those three people of color took strong steps to distance themselves from the convention, while promising to provide good, solid, and effective health care under what they called "existing" law.

GOP house leader promised never to give up the fight, despite 1,877 attempts to overturn the law had previously failed. Eft Gingrich, the illegitimate child of the famous family values pol Newt Gingrich, provided the most fireworks with his plans to invade Paraguay for its perceived insults directed to America about its flat earth, creationist GOP.

Bristol Palin, fresh from a three day stint as emcee of the reality show called Amazing Arizona, also suggested that she may seek higher office, even though she resigned from congress a month after being elected. She was obviously hoping that the Koch brothers, again in suspended animation between their complete organ re-grow and transplant surgeries, would fund her campaign, much like when they underwrote her mother's career over the decades. Because the thawing out takes a minimum of 2 weeks, the Kochs were not able to attend, although nano-bots would be injected into their brains so they would experience the whole convention personally.
