Today's Wrapup

The Belmont Club has published a fantastic commentary on the recent 'net release Pallywood, "...a short video that focuses on footage of Palestinians besieging an Israeli checkpoint that is used in 60 Minutes. Landes uses the outtakes and a frame by frame analysis to show, convincingly in my view, that much of it was entirely faked." Belmont's official stance: "...the point is that nothing on packaged television can be inherently trusted, and Pallywood demonstrates that." Thank you, G-d, somebody gets it.

Diane West's column on Townhall.com, What have we paid for with Palestinian handouts? is a "well its about time!!" piece that concludes: "It could be, however, that with the rise of Condoleezza Rice, the current Bush administration now reflects the re-ascendance of the old Bush-Baker-Scowcroft school of foreign policy Arabism." Lovely. Well, at least one conservative is commenting on the greatest foreign policy debacle of W's time in office.

The minute I start considering going back to school for my PhD, I read something like this on Little Green Footballs, and I am so glad the man is not on my back any more. The one benefit of the work world is that you aren't paying out the bum to be completely dependent on a group of abject retards just to get a shoddy piece of paper in the mail saying what you already knew: you're more qualified than they are.

Over at Solomonia, we learn that British Muslims don't like Holocaust Memorial Day because, "In the words of one committee member, 'The very name Holocaust Memorial Day sounds too exclusive to many young Muslims. It sends out the wrong signals: that the lives of one people are to be remembered more than others.'" Will the PC police at last stand up and recognize the founders of their feast? Nah. But they will invite British Muslims to join in on group hug day. (Warning: No Jews Allowed. They don't want to seem inclusionary.)

In an attempt to insert some fun into the blog (since most of the news I discuss is utterly depressing and extremely frustrating) I give to those of you driven to howl at the moon: the drink recipe of the day, gratis Webtender!

The Sabra
3/4 oz Absolut Mandrin
3/4 oz Godiva liqueur
Mixing instructions:
Chill together in the shaker and strain into a shot glass.

Creator/contributor's comments:
I named this shooter "Sabra" after the Israeli chocolate and orange flavored liqueur Sabra.

Note: Nine out of ten Rebbes agree, if you do double shots on Shabbos, its a double mitzvot.
