Karl ReMarks: Netanyahu Warns of Nightmarish Future in Which Arabs Do Regular Stuff

World  (tags: satire, Karl ReMarks, Palestine, Israel, Netanyahu )

- 1582 days ago -
The straw that broke the camel's back came during the Israeli elections this week. Palestinian citizens of Israel were voting! The affront! Netanyahu's 'the Arabs are voting!' summed up the dread and the fear in four neatly-arranged words.

Horrors! Hide your children! Lock all the doors! Thanks for posting, Evelyn. Better advice: procure earplugs to defend against another round of Bibi, the Bloviating Blowhard.

Bibi's remarks were taken completely out of context. Not that you care..... It's more fun for you this way, isn't it?

Arabs doing regular stuff, even liking satire! That's more than could be said for some here LOL Thanks for my laugh, Evelyn.

"Palestinian citizens of Israel" = "Israeli citizens of Palestine".

14 Arab MK in Israel, not that bad for an "Aparhteid"!

No Palestinian Arab members of Parliament in Lebanon. Oh, Palestinian Arabs don't have a right to vote there. But that's not "Aparhteid", that's brotherly country.

The four words "the Arabs are voting" quite possibly saved Mr Netanyahu's political career. There was no subtlety or principle in these remarks. Netanyahu has aimed his rhetoric squarely at Arabs and vilified his country’s Arab citizens. If anything this will most likely be a short term situation. Given that Israel’s 1 million Arabs now face the prospect of four years under a Jewish prime minister who openly demonizes their participation in the political process. Unrest in Gaza and the West Bank will be the least of Mr Netanyahu's worries.

No he didn't, no they don't, no it won't be.

What regular stuff are the Arabs doing? Burying their families?

Thanks Ros - for this reminder of dirty politics
LOL, Dandelion ...

I'd already used up my "star quota" for many of you ... have to settle for ******************************
(you know who you are! Those who can appreciate satire ... as satire, rather than objecting to its use against (un)saintly extreme right leaders ..... )

Funny how those who objected to people objecting to Charlie Hebdo's relatively crude satire now object to finessed satire against the N'Yahu !!!

Netanyahu (hoped I wouldn't have to write his name again) won't keep retaliating?

Evelyn B (63)

Oh, he will, Roslyn, and worse - he'll be convinced of his impunity! And so will his avid supporters.
More denial of Palestinian human rights; more waving aside settlerr violence, & probably minimal pretence at interest in any peace process: total crushing may be the open order of the day ... Using the effect "fear mongeiring" card to the hilt ...

Hmmm. . . . an election like the ones held in Zimbabwe perhaps. . .

Thank you, Evelyn, I needed a good laugh!

Now imagine if Bibi would ever know that in Cairo we have a motorbike club for women and they often tour the town!! He would get a fit and a heart attack ...

Ros??? I thought our "reproductive organs" are inside while those of the men are outside and therefore would need much more protection ... did I get something wrong in biology - LOL?

BTW our women motor bikers are innocent women having just fun - nothing like Hell Angels or the likes.

Hi Ros, my dear friend - good to read you again. What does a motor biker have to do with terrorists? Did I miss something?

Here they wanted to ban more than one on a motor bike because we had a number of incidents where Muslim Brothers drove on a bike and the passenger shot at police and people. But it went nowhere as these drive-by-shootings stopped.

Stay safe and avoid the "terrorists" ... ;-).

*terrorists*.... ;-) What would you call them? Just kids up to some shenanigans?? Just hope the police don't *abduct*, *torture*, and *imprison them forever* with *no cause*.

Well thus far Bikers are still Welcomed. I was just at Bike Week with my C2 friend that came over from Europe. I would say from conversation was most impressed at how we do it over here in USA. Besides guns I think that the motorcycles might be the third rail over here and so most likely wouldn't go over well trying to limit them.

We have many women who ride motorcycles and we have many motorcycle groups. One could see groups ie clubs from all over, from outside this Country to inside this Country. Solo riders to friends that get together, I saw a Fire Dept. group from NYC, Charity Motorcycle Groups, even saw a few of the "outlaw" groups, but everyone mixes in during Bike Week and is all good. We have from 500,000 to 800,000 that roll into this area for the week. Business welcome them with open arms, is a great economic boost.

The Bikers tend to have a good time and very little trouble. Kind of a "don't mess this up" so everyone lives and let lives. I am not aware of any additional laws for Bikie gangs as you call them there, I believe it is the same laws that we all must abide by.

Should a Palestinian biker's club form, I'd be honoured to ride with.

Good morning, dear Ros ;-). Wouldn't that be the logical place to look for an uncle ...?! I learned that everyone can fly under the banner of "terrorists/terrorism" as long as our dearest world leaders refuse to clearly define a "terrorist" by our newly created lingo.

I wonder if my little boxer rascal falls under that term too ... after all he killed recently cat # 21 who dared to enter our garden for the umpteen times and I wasn't fast enough to shush him/her away. He hates them with a passion (although he doesn't have access to Care2) and I can't figure out why. Must have been abused by one or more in his previous life ... LOL ... and takes revenge now. That would be the typical description of a today's terrorist, non?

Stay safe!

Sorry Evelyn for deviating a bit from the subject ;-) ...

Actually Ros - Buddy objects. It's not that he doesn't have access - I deny him access in order to protect his sanity and purity!!

Evelyn B (63)

I thought you'd tried to teach Buddy that cats can be venomous, Eleonora? Not just for his sanity .... :^)

Didn't realise things had got quite so oppressive, Ros .... How frustrating for "normal" bikers. I supposed bearded ones are considered especially dangerous (although I don't think that the quran actually endorses motorbikes anyway, in fact, bikers' views of their steeds might almost be grounds for destroying all bikes & bikers, in ISIS terms ...

I just don't understand any country that can have different sets of laws & justice for different people ... Although I am very aware of the fact that they do .... But why do "the people" tolerate it??????

LOL - don't worry, Evelyn, he knows that by himself as he is a smarty ... he only breaks their backs and that's that!

As for the Qur'an and motorbikes ... in those days they only had "camel bikes" so they should be allowed ... non? ;-)

On a serious note: I just put in this video and article and would highly appreciate if you all would help to ultimately free Hana Gan and her two boys. Thanks a lot!!

Police swoop on pregnant Canadian national trapped in Israel and take her children!

Funny Ros. My late husband looked just like Willie Nelson and he had a beard. lol Where-ever we went we'd hear whispers, "is that Willie Nelson?" He'd forever have people coming up asking for his autograph and when we were married someone sent up champagne to us. We sent the champagne back as we never kept anything that people thought was going to Willie Nelson. However we got a knock on the door and the people insisted we keep it just the same. :-)

LOL, Ros ...
After a rather depressing picture of Australia today .... Glad you still have some of that "Aussie" humour around to keep old values (??) around

Lovely story, Dandelion!

Re that case of Hana Gan - there are some very strange things that go on around "family" in Israel - obligatory circumcision for boys whether the mother agrees or not, refusal of exit for a Canadian woman who has discovered that Israel's "promises" can become threats, separating a mother and her children .... And Hana Gan isn't alone in this; there are many families who are shattered by the "law" & those who can pull strings ... You can almost understand why some people are so viciously violent when criticism is voiced .... too scared to allow themselves to be honest & critical.

Thanks for the good laugh, Ros and Dandelion. All I can say is if my hubby would ever want a divorce ... all he has to do is shave his beard! I even trim it for him so he looks even more handsome ;-)!!

I feel for you, Dandelion. Once on a plane the flight attendants and some passengers kept whispering and staring and we didn't know why. Until when it came to exiting the plane hubby was asked: "Sir, excuse us, but you're XYZ, right?" ... that XYZ-person being a very high ranking international politician. Glad that we could deny but not sure if they really believed us. The result was that we changed the shape of the beard - LOL!

On a more serious note: yes, Evelyn, it is scary and I agree also with the portrayed violence against criticism - it hurts when one touches raw nerves and the look in the mirror is not pleasant either in this case.

Glad I can't see what's in their mirrors! But they've probably trained their mirros to say "You're the finest of them all"!!!
