Mideast Neighborhood

    And now…. The REAL Cartoon Of The Day!

    Have a nice day!

    “I am afraid that there is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.” – Booker T. Washington

      How about just stop creeping on kids in the dark!

        As usual Bozo is off topic and showing his acute racist self. Bozo is so ignorant of racial matters that he accused Presdient Obama of ignoring the “white people” of Coney Island after superstorm Sandy. He had no idea of the racial makeup of Coney Island but that didn’t stop his ignorant and racist comment then. I expect nothing from Bozo other than these copied quotes and comments.

          With Bozo, it is just important that he say something, that it be overtly racist, and that he deny it vehemently while trying to spin it back onto his critics. He is just a teapublibot that has been spoon-fed his entire personality by the likes of Rush. What else can we expect.

      Well, that ties in nicely with a cartoon about the Middle East, OMG. I guess GZ represents Palestine and TM represents Israel? I thought you had enough of the Zimmerman-Martin fiasco. Ya know, somewhere in all the hype and misinformation firestorm about the case, I’m sure it was mentioned that Zimmy was a “martial arts expert.” I guess it’s a good thing he had that martial arts training or he might have really gotten hurt. I know you love these cartoons, but try to stay on subject.
      Have a great day, OMG!

      If you are going to quote a black man as your way of faking people into not seeing your racism, at least explain the context and the “solvers” he was referring to. The quote is meaningless and makes you out to be a liar, if you do not do that.

      • ObozoMustGo

        Sharpton, Jackson, and all the other race hustlers who profit from the perpetuation of racial strife. The ones who show up to start riots where none need exist over issues that have nothing to do with race like the TM- GZ case. That’s who. And Booker knew them before they even existed. He spotted those low lifers from across the century. And he was right. If you cannot understand what he said in that quote, there is no hope for you Byrdie. It’s plain meaning, plain English.

        Have a nice day!

        “I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” – Martin Luther King

          You said nothing that negated what I have said, nor have you put your Washington quote in context. After that failure, the rest of your spiel becomes meaningless drivel.

          I notice you refer to BTW as Booker. Is that so he will not be confused with the white Founding Father. Looks like a big-time Freudian slip to me.

          I guess the accusation laid against you of being a paid shill, may after all be true.

          As to the King quote, are you going to suggest that perfect equality exists today?

          • ObozoMustGo

            Byrd brain… if you do not understand plain English, there is no hope for you.

            Have a nice day!

          • Russell Byrd

            Bozo, since you once again dodged the truth, just refer to my above post as my current reply. That reply still stands intact. And obviously, I not only understand English, I understand your post for the racist psychobabble that it was.

    They got along for centuries between the rise of Islam and the Zionist movement. The largest synagogue ever built was in Toledo, Spain, under the Moors (confiscated by Ferdinand and Isabella, it has been a Catholic church since then); Jewish sages such as Moshe ben Maimon (or Moses Maimonides) flourished under Islam; and Jews from Europe tried to get to Muslim nations to avoid persecution from the Christian church and governments. What happened?

    The Zionist movement, although well intentioned, brought Jews who were throughly Europeanized except for their religion (and many of them secular, even atheist), in far greater numbers than the local Arab population expected, turning Palestine into a mirror of Europe and treating the Arabs … the way our British ancestors treated the Native Americans over here. After World War One, there were more double crosses: Colonel Lawrence had promised the Arabs that, in defeating the Ottoman Empire (which was regarded as an oppressor by Arabs, even though Arabs and Turks were both Muslim), a pan-Arab democracy would be created. He probably believed it, but he was overridden. France and England carved up the Middle East into spheres of influence, within which, eventually, puppet nations were created without regard to ethnic boundaries. This eroded whatever trust the Arabs had for Europeans, specifically British and French, and after the war, the Soviets got many Arab leaders on their side in the Cold War.

    The Jewish community views Israel as the fulfillment of their Biblical dream, but the Arab population’s first view of modern Jews seemed to them like another “invasion” by Europeans. The two communities have been at war ever since, to the point that some Muslims reject even the original teachings of Mohammed to leave Jews and Christians alone as People of the Book like Muslims and concentrate on idolaters.

    There are SOME Jewish communities who never LEFT Palestine in the first place and do NOT consider “secular” Zionism a good thing, since the Messiah was not the founder of the state of Israel. Perhaps the Israelis need to listen to them, and show some humility and apologize to Palestinian Arabs.

      Great short history lesson, it is just not what the Bozos of this nation want to hear, i.e. the truth. No leathernecks killing infidel tribesmen, etc.
