Angry journalists, who initially boycotted the session, describe subcommittee's claims to be part of a 'witch hunt,' and slam Israel's 'authoritarian' efforts to clamp down on the media.14:27 09.02.16 | 2 comments
Israel is a Jewish state. Who didn't know that? It isn't Sweden. Since when does being a Jewish State mean that a Rabbi has final authority? Get real and stop attaching political pronouncements to reality on the ground. Talkbackers are portraying Israel as some 17th century regressive Taliban. Honesty is good and unfairly criticized when anyone dares to speak it. Israel has way more freedom than we have in America. Had Hillary made as bold a speech as Lieberman at the UN which in any way contradicted the policy of the Empire shockwaves would have rocked Washington worse than a 8.9 earthquake. A Pledge of loyalty to Israel is most definitely not a pledge to Likud or to the Prime Minister. The Jewish Republic of Israel would be nice to hear announced at International sporting events.
