“There has been a lot of talk about "transparency" on this subject. To me what is most transparent is Issa and the GOP's strategy of going after AG Holder in order to get to Obama. First they want to vote Holder in contempt. Then they'll go after the President. If if they don't have enough evidence for impeachment (and they most certainly don't) they hope they can create enough doubt to ruin Obama's reelection chances.”

“What creates doubt is the invocation of Executive Privilege.
if you think the American people don't know about the initial issue (F&F), you're wrong - they clearly do.”

“Sounds very transparent to me. And if they feel someone is criminal, then why do you blame then?”
“Why would Obama intentionally choose to do something this controversial that, as you say, makes him look guilty? Your argument on the face of it makes absolutely no sense! Much more likely, he is standing up and defending AG Eric Holder because he knows Holder is acting in good faith and doing a good job. He's also putting his foot down and saying "enough with this ridiculous witch hunt!"”
“For all of you out there who keep harping on a lack of "transparency" in the Obama Administration, consider this. The administration has already released something like 140,000 documents on "Fast & Furious" and Eric Holder has testified no less than 8 times on the Hill. Holder continues to make good faith efforts to disclose what he can, but Issa and the GOP are clearly out for blood. They won't be satisfied until they can get rid of Holder or some major figure in the administration in order to score political points in an election year. It seems it's the only thing left for the "Party of No" who refuse to even consider the Jobs Bill that would put millions of Americans back to work. The only "transparency" here is continued Republican obstructionism and diversion. The only remedy is to vote these bozos out of office in November!”

“Besides all that, The Passion was hardly original. Variations on such passion plays were displayed all over Christian Europe for centuries, especially eastern Europe, and led to untold persecutions and murder of Jews. My own grandparents and other family were victims of "Passion" inspired pogroms in old Czarist Russia.”

“For all the anti-semitic overtone the Passion made a truckload of money and in Hollywood that a sure way for peoples to forgive a lot. Disgusting but it is what it is! Like I said one crazy drunken rant was survivable the last month well not so much.”
Aren't we Americans currently "occupying" Iraq and Afghanistan? Using your logic, maybe we should be boycotting America too?”

“I have boycotted the right wing media giant Gannett, which owns USA Today and about 95 other papers....and the ugly Fox channel.....the owner's of any GOP type corporation, like Exxon.....for dragging the US into the Iraq War, and partly, as was said on so many TV programs in 2002, for Israel's sake !
" Thanks " for the Blunder, but we decline to follow your advice and start yet another Mideast war...

There would have been no Palestinian refugee problem had the Arab countries at the time accepted the Partition Plan adopted by the UN. While I do support a Palestinian state, living in peace with Israel, I feel it is most unfair to settle the refugee problem at Israel's expense, since it was caused entirely by Arab aggression against Israel. However, the refugee issue has always been a convenient excuse for the PLO to reject the peace process.”

“Boys of Summer,
Do you believe that it was incumbant upon "the Arab countries" to accede to a partition plan that contrevened the "Balfour Declaration" and the British "Palestinian Mandate" both of which stipulated " that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine"? What could be a more severe prejudice of civil rights than the alienation of rights of residence in ancestral territory?

“Dear NTT: Thank you for this valuable history lesson. While Israel isn't blameless in the entire conflict, it was clearly Arafat who blew up the peace process in 2000. He then started an unrelenting campaign of terrorism against Israel. As an American and a Jew, I'm still deeply saddened.”
NTT on Aug 1, 2010 at 04:48:59
“We who are interested in peace are all saddened. Had Arafat accepted that reasonable deal, an independent peaceful Palestinian state would be celebrating its 10th anniversary now.
Note from the document I cited that, although the Palestinians were quibbling about the difference between 96%+3%+safe passage corridor and 100%, the real deal-breaker (deliberately though rather naively left to the end of the document, in an effort to "conceal" it) was the "right of return". This continues to this day. Having been forced to admit they cannot destroy Israel by military means (though some still dream about a new Salah-ad-Din in the shape of Ahmedinejad) Israel-haters still hope to do it by demographic means. I.e., by flooding Israel with Arab "refugees", the vast majority of which were born and "bred" in abject conditions in pariah camps by their Arab "brethren" and taught hatred for the Jewish state from early infancy.
When Abbas talks about "two states", he means a) a Palestinian state with no Jewish presence; b) a "second state" with Palestinian majority through the "right to return" exercised to Israel, NOT to the Palestinian state. Of course, this makes a mockery of the "two-state solution" which most of the world supports. Israel is justified in defending itself against the intentions to destroy it.”
