Nemo me impune lacessit

No one provokes me with impunity


No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Article 1, Section 9, Constitution of the United States

If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

David Levy: Isreal's Founding Was Wrong

David Levy, one of the founder's of the anti-Isreali "J-Street" lobbying group, has been captured on video in Dubai  stating that Isreal founding in 1948 was wrong.  Here's video:

It's always nice (NOT) to see a Jew say such asinine things, especially when the dumbscheisse gets the history wrong. 
For one, he seems to have his history of Israel’s independence backwards – it was, after all, the Arab states that rejected the UN partition plan and chose to launch a war of annihilation against the nascent Jewish state instead. This war created the Palestinian refugee problem – but Levy thinks the refugees are Israel’s fault.

For another, the Arab League insisted that the Arabs living in what is now Israel leave their homes sot the League could drive the Jews into the sea...unfortunately, that  didn't happen.  So that created the "refugee problem" that has plagued the Middle East for decades.  Those nations that took these people in could have solved the problem easily by granting them citizenship.  After all, Jordan is made up of some 90% "Palestinians," who are in reality ethnic Arabs. 
Levy’s argument – and J Street’s defense of it – help propagate the Palestinian myth of the “Nakba,” which, in the words of Sol Stern, “connotes a historical catastrophe inflicted on an innocent and blameless people (in this case, the Palestinians) by an overpowering outside force (international Zionism).”
Thus, in reality, the "problem" of Palestinians lays at the feet of Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Egypt and the Saudi's, but don't expect them to admit it.  It has been for more than 50 years a method of distracting their own oppressed populace from the internal issues that could threaten their own stability.
