      “The only thing this administration did since it came to office is just to take Israelis and Palestinians off the path to peace, off the path of the two-state solution,” Erekat said.”

      A fine piece of bs. This guy needs a coffee, some sun, and little introspection. Palestine has made it clear, along with other Middle Eastern nations, that there will be no peace with Israel.

      Trump has cut through this bs and got on with business. Israel can be a world citizen. Much of the Middle East in its present configuration can’t. Israel is our beachhead in the Middle East. That needs to be protected at all costs.

        Israel is not and can never be our beachhead in the Middle East. It is an Island of misguided Jawehans smack in the middle of a sea of followers of the true Jaweh, whose name is Allah, & whose land Allah gave them the Zioinsts have stolen. And we are overwhelmingly not Jews. Or Zionists.

          It’s our beachhead given the enemy has breached Western defences. Sooner or later we will have to outflank this enemy to survive. That operation will start from Israel.

          ”It is an Island of misguided Jawehans smack in the middle of a sea of followers of the true Jaweh, whose name is Allah.”

          Sounds like a beachhead in the broader term to me.

          ”And we are overwhelmingly not Jews. Or Zionists.”

          Nor do we want to be. Israel is a compatible partner for the West. We understand each other. And so far, can rely on each other.

          Only the Jew-Hating left have a problem with this arrangement. Given the Left even hate their own Western culture and work assiduously through our institutions to destroy our heritage, how can not hating Israel be an option?

            Israel’s not our heritage Corks. Basically wogs.

              What are wogs?

              People of Middle Eastern origin, according to my dear departed da who helped kick Rommel’s lot out of North Africa with his Vickers. (Mum would tell him off for it sometimes. The others were Jerry & Eyeties)

            They hate us Corks. They shat on us recently. Big time. Spat the dummy & puked on us.

            And they sent their spies here to get up to no good with our passports. Not to be trusted any way, nohow.

            Nasty apartheid government there now. Bibi’s getting ready for another round of a bit of ethnic cleansing of more land, with Ivanka & Jared in his back pocket he’s got control of the Military supplies & the Egomaniac needed to get away with it. Job done.

              How so?

              Didn’t NZ crap on them?

            • Gezza

               /  16th September 2018

              No I don’t think so. Didn’t we just remind them they were building in the wrong place or something?

      Joe will cope fine. You two both have convictions & armour so solidified the other’s bullets just bounce off.

        Thanks Gezza. I’ve been clear and unyielding in my view that trump and his appointments are unfit for office for many many reasons. I’ve been consistent in that view for over two years here. And with every new revelation coming out of the WH my view has been supported and reinforced.

        The manafort flip is what happens when Mueller’s precision comes up against trump and his fools. King Idiot and Rudy get headlines, Mueller’s team gets pleas and verdicts.

        Having to wait for another presidential election and possibly losing that will be too much for Joe’s blood pressure. Armour won’t save her from her internal combustion, G.

      I’m coping fine here Al. Basking in the moment of Manafort’s flip to Mueller and thinking that Al Capone was eventually taken down for tax fraud, something that the unindicted co-conspirator in federal crimes is highly exposed to.

      Which is more important: how a gangrenous limb is removed? Or whether it is removed?

      My vote is for removal by whatever means possible.

        “My vote is for removal by whatever means possible.”

        It’s funny you don’t seem to think the means would be the election in 2020.

      • Alan Wilkinson

        Quelle surprise. My vote is for respecting the democratic choice at election and not trying to overthrow it by perverting the justice system.

    Just what do you mean by “our” and “beachhead” ?

    What a storm!

      A real one.

      Not one in a teacup as endlessly put forward by the blue troll patrol.

    This story is getting bigger – it will be interesting where it leads…

    “An investigation into the burglary of a professor whose work exposed China’s influence in New Zealand has led detectives offshore with inquiries raising questions over a possible intelligence operation.

    Five police staff have worked over the past seven months investigating the February burglary of the home of University of Canterbury Professor Anne-Marie Brady, as well as other break-ins at her office on campus.

    After months of silence this week police revealed progress had been made on the case, and Interpol – the international police co-operation agency – were also involved.”

      wonder what Dr Jiang thinks.

      • High Flying Duck

         /  16th September 2018

        He must surely have been under extreme scrutiny by NZ security services. If not there are big issues. The “robbery” has shades of French terrorists and Israeli spies about it. We seem to be a magnet for covert operations by supposedly friendly nations.

    Our weather reports need some work to match this next level graphical representation:

      Stunning.

      Iewes at 6 did something similar recently where the presenter was standing in the middlle of animated graphics. Can’t remember exactly what it was now, maybe an outer-space-related item, but they’ll be doing it again I bet. Their entire set appears designed for such effects now.
