    I thought you were stretching topicality a bit when you wrote about something that happened at the beginning of May. Going back to 1967 takes the biscuit. Sadly, friendly fire happens in wars. The Americans know all about this and have been to blame for many such incidents..

  2. “Friendly fire” is just another Zionist lie.

    This was a deliberate prolonged and sustained attack.

    But how would you know if you haven’t watched the video!?!

    Well of course you would say this was a Zionist lie. It is par for the course with you Trevor. It is true I have not accessed the video because Trevor, if I remember correctly, mentioned this in one of his replies on the Christians for Zion website. I looked into the matter at the time and found out it was just another of Trevgor’s anti-Israel posts.

  4. Have you watched the video yet, Chris?

    Not yet, Trevor, but here’s what an Israeli newspaper says about links between the United States and Israel.
    Israel Hayom newspaper reports: U.S. President Barack Obama’s nominee for ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power promised to push for action on Syria and fight what she termed “unacceptable bias” against Israel at the world body during her Senate confirmation hearing on Wednesday.
    “The United States has no greater friend in the world than the state of Israel,” Power told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Wednesday. “We share security interests, we share core values, and we have a special relationship with Israel.
    “And just as I have done as President Obama’s U.N. adviser at the White House, I will stand up for Israel and work tirelessly to defend it,” she said.
    The 42-year-old’s confirmation is expected to win strong support in both the committee and full Senate. The foreign relations panel will likely vote on Power’s nomination next Tuesday, said Senator Robert Menendez (D.-N.J.), its chairman.
    Nominated to replace new National Security Adviser Susan Rice, Power took a tough line on attitudes in the United Nations on Israel.
    She promised to end what she termed “unacceptable bias and attacks” against the close U.S. ally, and criticized Iran, calling for tightened sanctions.
    She also said she would lobby for Israel to get a seat on the U.N. Security Council, a U.S. policy that has been blocked by the large number of countries that are cold or hostile toward the Jewish state. “The Security Council seat is one that has eluded Israel, despite its many contributions across the years, and I commit to you wholeheartedly to go on offense, as well as playing defense on the legitimation of Israel, and we’ll make every effort to secure greater integration of Israeli public servants in the U.N. system.”
    She also promised to vigorously oppose any and all efforts by the Palestinian Authority to seek greater recognition in U.N. bodies, something the Palestinian leadership has pledged to continue doing.
    “We need to deter the Palestinians in any way we can—and we need to get their attention,” Power said.
