White House Chief of Staff to Israel: Get out . . . White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough made clear in a speech to a left-leaning Israel advocacy group that President Obama isn’t letting Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu off the hook for his dismissal of a two-state solution. A one-state solution based on unilateral annexation and abandonment of democratic rights for Palestinians, he warned, “would only contribute to Israel’s further isolation.” In other words, he said, more divestment, boycotts and efforts to delegitimize Israel in the international community. “An occupation that has lasted more than 50 years must end,” McDonough said, one of several times he brought the crowd to its feet. Politico

  1. The anti-semites in the White House will destroy Israel either internally, or by allowing the Palestinians to take over, or by allowing Iran to destroy it.

    I know we helped with the Iron Dome. But that doesn’t mean that they want Israel to be a Jewish State.

    in their mind, if Israel was gone they’d have less problems on their plate.

  2. Hillary has gone on the Comedy Tour, her appearance yesterday with some press corp (more like press corpse!) she threw a bunch of one-liners out as if she were on Johnny Carson waiting to be called over to the chair. It’s thoroughly awful and unprofessional. If she’s going to run a campaign, get on with it gal. Otherwise, get off the pot and go knit booties.

      • Here’s why Hillary went to Obama: to beg him to call off the dogs. She promised she would never, ever, make a public statement that suggested she didn’t agree 1000 percent with everything he ever said or did as President. Remember how Hillary was making little comments about how she might have “done things” differently than Obama? She paid a mighty big price for that. She learned her lesson.
