  1. Prime Minister NuttyYahoo's comments confirm what we've always suspected. Tel Aviv pulls the strings, and their American puppets respond.

    Hey, Nutty, Obama, Clinton, and the U.S. Congress are standing by for your latest orders. . . .

  2. Speaking of the American media as 'Israeli occupied territory', I even stopped watching John Stewart because of that. Too bad, I really enjoyed his media commentary, but when it comes to Israel he is just gutless.

  3. i had a similar reaction to jon stewart and don't even mention bill maher, something about dishonesty and fear in a journalism just makes them so unapealing. keep in mind they are limited to what they can say and i say gutless might be an overstatement because they are mostly comedians and entertainers not journalists.

  4. You Americans just dont get it…… you're no longer a democracy…..

  5. Face reality: the USA has been an oligarchy from the beginning, and ruled by protestant fanatics since at least Reagan's day. (RR was the first pres. to think that starting Armeggedon was his destiny.)
