Anne's Opinions

Earlier this week I posted about an Israel Apartheid Week meeting at Middlesex University in London in which not only did Ken O’Keefe compare Jews to Nazis, but (h/t Richard Millett) Baroness Jenny Tonge, aka Jihad Jenny Tonge, who as a British MP ought to know and behave better, said the following:

…to beware of the Israel lobby because “once they have decided to go for you, they will go for you. I bear the scars” (clip 5). She finished by saying that “Israel is not going to be there forever” and warned that eventually Israel “will lose its support and then they will reap what they have sown.” (Clip 3)

Who are “they” and what does she imply will happen to them?

Richard Millett has posted the video clips of Jihad Jenny’s outbursts, one which I repost here. Go to Richard Millett’s blog to see the rest, if…

(CNN) — With a shot at high school state championship glory on the line, a Jewish basketball team in Texas is opting for the sidelines, aiming for something a little higher.

The study was published Tuesday in the print edition of the journal Neurology.

Washington (CNN)– After a weekend that saw continued deadly violence in Afghanistan triggered by what the U.S. says was the inadvertent burning of Qurans, an American Muslim group says outreach here is unlikely to help over there.

On Friday, a ranking Pentagon official visited a prominent mosque in the outside Washington and apologized for last week’s incident, which involved copies of the Quran and other religious tracts that had been
kept at a U.S. detention facility in Bagram.

“On behalf of Secretary Panetta, and the Department of Defense, I offer my sincere regret for the incident at Bagram Air Base,” said Acting Assistant Secretary of Defense Peter Lavoy.

LISTEN TO YOUR MAMA! by Bonnie Wurst  ©2012 – Short Fiction

When I was just a little girl, I asked my mother… what will I be?
Will I be pretty? Will I be rich? Here’s what she said to me…
(from the 1956 song ‘Que Sera, Sera’ – by Jay Livingston & Ray Evans / Doris Day Show Theme Song 1968-73)

My own mother used to sing that song to me when I was a kid, but unlike the response to the questions above that Doris Day gave,
Que sera, sera. Whatever will be, will be. The future’s not ours to see. Que sera, sera…‘, my mother instead told me this:
