A new day, new week, new month...same B.S.

Jimmy Carter Comes to Berkeley
Socialists, Progressives & anti-Semites welcome their favorite son

When former President Jimmy Carter addressed students at the University of California, Berkeley, this past month, he wasn't exactly talking to a tough crowd. In what is the birthplace of modern liberalism and the Progressive movement, Carter didn't have to create explanations for his anti-Israel writings or blame Jewish control rhetoric . At Berkeley, preaching against Israel is as popular...hating America.

University of Cincinnati emeritus professor of political science and former Heritage Foundation fellow, Abraham Miller (Uncle Abe), has written a brilliant commentary on Carter's recent visit to UC Berkeley. I strongly urge all Paulies Point readers to check out, Jimmy Carter Comes to Berkeley, featured in Frontpage Magazine.

Palestinians praying for occupation
Life was better and safer under the Jews

Thanks to American Thinker Chief Political Correspondent, Richard Baer, for cluing me in on a fascinating development in the Palestinian territories. Kudos to the blog site, Captains Quarters for providing the insight to the following posting. Apparently the recent fighting or dare I say civil war between Hamas and Fatah fighters, has made life in the Gaza strip so unbearable that Palestinians are wishing the Israeli army would return.

Faiz Abbas and Muhammad Awwad, journalists for the Israeli-Arab weekly Al-Sinara, wrote: "People in Gaza are hoping that Israel will reenter the Gaza Strip, wipe out both Hamas and Fatah, and then withdraw again... They also say that, since the [start of the] massacres, they [have begun to] miss the Israelis, since Israel is more merciful than [the Palestinian gunmen] who do not even know why they are fighting and killing one another. It's like organized crime, [they said]. Once, we resisted Israel together, but now we call for the return of the Israeli army to Gaza."

Other Palestinian journalists have chimed in on the tragic realities plaguing the Palestinians. Al-Hayat Al-Jadida columnist Yahya Rabah wrote: "When the national unity government was formed, I thought, 'This will be a government of national salvation.' If a government that includes Fatah, Hamas, other factions and independents associated with [various] factions has not been able to save the day, it means that no one can, unless Israel decides that its army should intervene. Then it will invade [the Gaza Strip], kill and arrest [people] - but this time not as an occupying [force] but as an international peace-keeping force. Look what we have come to, how far we have deteriorated, and what we have done to ourselves."

Palestinian journalist Majed Azzam wrote: "We should have the courage to acknowledge the truth... The [only] thing that prevents the chaos and turmoil in Gaza from spreading to the West Bank is the presence of the Israeli occupation [in the West Bank]... [as opposed to] its absence from the Gaza Strip."

Anger over the current situation has caused one newspaper to call for the resignation of Mahmoud Abbas and Arab nations not to recognize the Palestinian Authority. Columnists have called for a new intifada, but not against Israel. This uprising is aimed at Hamas and Fatah.

Your brilliant blogger said it back in February of 2006, Hamas would now have to put together a functioning government. The Palestinians would have to live with their decision to elect the terrorist organization into power. Now the two political and military rivals are unable to blame the Jews, even though one journalist has referred to Hamas and Fatah "agents of Israel," which shows the true depths behind the hatred of Israel and the insanity of the situation.

The world can talk about peace talks, road maps and accords all they want. The truth is that Israel has been waiting nearly 60 years for peace, but they don't have a partner to make an agreement with. Until the PA can or wants to have a two-state solution, they first need a representative at the bargaining table. It will take a civil war to determine the negotiator and one of the possible winners refuses to recognize Israel's right to exist.
