The above line is taken from US President John F. Kennedy's Inaugural Address, January 20, 1961
You can read John Kennedy’s inspirational words at: https://www.ushistory.org/documents/ask-not.htm
Mr. “blood-on-his-hands” Netanyahu, the second part of the Kennedy quote is addressed to you.
“What can you do for your country.”
You can, for a start, take your wife and skulk off to Florida and join your son Yair. It’s a Victorian gesture, but I hope somebody presents Yair with a massive bouquet of white feathers. He merits nothing less.
Mr. Netanyahu, your days are numbered. You are finished, kaput, a mere footnote in the history of Israel.
Your dream of a Nobel Peace Prize is no more. No doubt “her in-doors” is ranting, raving, and cursing you to the high heavens. Her chance of meeting the Norweigan Royal Family, bathing in your glory is now defunct.
It’s an overlooked fact that just before Israel’s independence from Britain in May 1948, David Ben Gurion received a proposal for the fledging State of Israel to join the British Empire (Commonwealth of Countries). The offer was also extended to the newly created Jordan. For different reasons, both countries turned the offer down.
Purely for the fun of it, I make-believe what Israel would be today had Ben Gurion accepted the offer and the country had joined the British Empire.
For a start, Mr. Netanyahu might well be Sir Benjamin and “her indoors”, Lady Netanyahu. No doubt, if she knew, she would curse Ben Gurion to the high heavens for his lack of foresight, although as we know, she is no Lady!
A recent headline in the Times of Israel reads:
The last line of the brief ToI report is as follows:
“When I send you to a mission, our dear heroes, I am confident in our complete victory over our enemies. I trust you, am proud of you and love you.”
So my question to our benevolent leader is; how does it feel to send the cream of this current generation into harm's way when your sons are hiding out, Yair in the US and Avner, I am reliably told in the UK?
Do you have any emotions about sending IDF soldiers to their possible deaths?
Is it all a game to you? Pure PR spin for a gullible audience.
By all accounts, you were cautioned time and again about Hamas and their intentions. The warnings came not only from your minister of defense but from numerous military/defense experts. It would seem you chose to ignore them in your blind faith that (a) you knew better and (b) Hamas would act as counterlever to the PLO in the West Bank. Divide and Rule.
Just look where that has got us.
Are you guilty of treason?
It buggers the belief, that intelligent, informative senior Likud MKs and Likud central committee members did nothing, and said nothing as Netanyahu clobbered together this current government coalition including Ben Gvir, Smotrich, and their brand of neo-Nazis.
As a reminder, Neo-Nazism is a militant, social, and political movement that seeks to revive and reinstate ultra-rightwing ideology. Neo-Nazis employ their ideology to promote hatred and racial supremacy, to attack racial and ethnic minorities, creating, in this case, the hatred of Arabs (Islamophobia), and the creation of a modern fascist state built on religious zeal.
Make no mistake, Ben Gvir, Smotrich, and their brand of neo-Nazis Neo-Nazism looks to borrow elements from Nazi doctrine, including ultranationalism, racism, xenophobia, ableism, homophobia, anti-communism, and create in Israel a country that would mirror Franco’s Spain.
Not only was Mr. Netanyahu seemly OK with this scenario, which allowed him to yet again assume the PM role but let “she who must be obeyed” once again veto power over her husband.
And the intelligent, informative senior Likud MKs and Likud central committee members did nothing and said nothing. It would seem that they were more interested in continuing to massage Netanyahu’s ever-inflating ego all the while holding on to their seats and power positions. Fuck the country!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Although not a member of the Likud, a prime example of the clowns Netanyahu has surrounded himself with is Heritage Minister Amihai Eliyahu.
This non-entity, this waste of space (and money) earlier today suggested nuking Gaza. Later he walked back on the suggestion “saying it’s clear to anyone with a brain that the remark about the atom was metaphorical”.
It’s also clear to anyone with even half a brain that this moron, one of Ben Gvir’s jokers, does not have the sense to think before he opens his mouth.
His remarks already appear in the foreign press and have given Hamas and their supporters around the world the ammunition to say “The Jews now want to bomb the people of Gaza with nuclear missiles”.
What a fucking jerk.
Another clown with verbal diarrhea is Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich.
Earlier today ToI reported:
Meanwhile, far-right Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich asserted Saturday that Israel “will control Gaza after the war.”
“I will not invest a shekel in shielding the Gaza border area,” said Smotrich, implying that it will not be necessary after the conclusion of the war.
“The most important thing is that there will be no more Hamas, that the Strip will be under the operational control of the IDF for years, and that we will not return to the same misconceptions,” he told Channel 12. “We will be there, we will rule there and we will maintain security.”
Why can’t these non-entities keep their oversized mouths zipped?
For the fallen of Israel not to be forgotten, we MUST be their voice and stop this Kakistocracy government from plundering the wealth of the country.
