Huffington Post Makes All of America Believe Israel Is Devil By Cropping Photo

Pajamas Media is still updating its website, somehow, and today we have IMPORTANT NEWS about the front page of another Internet website. It seems Huffington Post has EVILLY CROPPED A PHOTO of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu so that it looks like he has ANTLERS! Wait, DEVIL HORNS! DEVIL HORNS! That’s it. This kind journalist has brought this to our attention and has even done some shoe-leather reporting on this amazing sign that the Huffington Post is brainwashing us to hate Israel.

Dutch Politician Solves Everything By Coming Up With Plan For Jordan To Rename Itself Palestine … Also, Here Is Steve Cohen Dancing To Rap

Forget the whole Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “Jordan is Palestine,” said Dutch guy Geert Wilders, leader of the right-wing Party for Freedom. “Changing its name to Palestine will end the conflict in the Middle East and provide the Palestinians with an alternate homeland.” Next time Palestinians look at a map they are going to feel so silly! Your country is over there, stupids! “If Jerusalem falls into the hands of the Muslims, Athens and Rome will be next,” Wilders also said, as he apparently lives in four disparate periods of world history simultaneously. On a related note, here is Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) sweatily dancing while some guys rap: Read more on Dutch Politician Solves Everything By Coming Up With Plan For Jordan To Rename Itself Palestine … Also, Here Is Steve Cohen Dancing To Rap…

San Francisco Bay Palestinetards Block Ship From Unloading Goods, Destroying State of Israel

Hundreds of protesters waved signs and flags and stuff at the Port of Oakland on Sunday because an Israeli cargo ship was coming in and this was the most important way they could protest Israel for some reason. Longshoremen refused to cross the “picket line” of weirdos because apparently it had some union backing. In San Francisco, remember, “union members” are not your usual blue-collar folks, they’re hippie-plumbers and hippie-electrical-workers and hippie-Teamsters.

If Joe Biden Loves Israel Attacking the Humanitarian Boats So Much, Why Does He Pose On Arabic Sesame Street?

Vice President Joe Biden did two things Wednesday night: He went on the Charlie Rose interview show to defend Israel’s attack on the humanitarian flotilla trying to bring supplies to walled-off Gaza, and he attended some Sesame Street gala event. Which of these things are not like the other? Both of them, as you can clearly see from this promotional photograph released by the Sesame Street organization. Yeah, that’s right, Biden is standing right underneath the Arabic sign for Sesame Street.

Internet Star Barack Obama Talked About Twitter Like The Whole Time He Was Abroad

Obama told Chinese teenagers about the uncensored Internet, a mediocre collection of re-purposed AP articles and some videos that generally people only like when it’s not available.  [New York Times] Over at some United Nations summit, everyone bonded about how much they hate hunger but declined to throw any money at the problem.

Obama Is Just As Bored With All This Policy-y Health Care Whatever As Everyone Else

The health care debate’s fifteen minutes are finally, finally up. Ugh, do you even remember all that? Anyway, Obama will now solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, America’s original synonym for “unable to be fixed with one swift gesture.” Obama’s (alleged!) new peace plan includes TEN swift gestures, which he will (allegedly!) present at a peace conference in Egypt at the end of the month. This does not leave much time for every person on Earth to begin absolutely despising each clause of the hated plan for quasi-personal reasons of varying legitimacy! Let’s begin immediately.

Mike Huckabee Would Not Be A Good Envoy For Israeli-Palestinian Peace Talks

Very funny things happen when Mike Huckabee opens his mouth and says words about foreign policy. Remember the above clip from one of those hilarious 2008 GOP primary debates? He just had no idea what to say! And things don’t seem to have changed much, given today’s very confident declaration of no-peace.

When All Else Fails, Think

Think tanks have this magical ability to fix all the evil in the world, just by thinking. This week they solve the Middle East crisis (ABOUT TIME) and explain how the financial crisis has affected everyone from children to small animals to the newest crop of starving, underpaid/unpaid interns in DC.  And the Heritage Foundation even manages to find the time to praise everyone’s favorite dead conservative, Ronald Reagan, again.

Storytelling Hour With the Palestinians!

Friday, Feb. 27: The Ramallah-based Al-Kasaba Theatre and Cinematheque perform Alive from Palestine: Stories Under Occupation, a “response to the conflict of their homeland.” A reviewer from The Independent in London calls it something between “news and propaganda,” but it’s kind of hard to imagine Hamas coming up with something so creative (although, Hamas Mouse was pretty genius). 7:30PM, Kennedy Center.

Dunkin’ Donuts Nixes Terrorist Rachael Ray Ad

Remember when those nuts on the right, Michelle Malkin and Charles Johnson, condemned beloved fast food bakery Dunkin’ Donuts for letting teevee chef Rachael Ray wear a Palestinian scarf in this ad? Dunkin’ Donuts first released a statement saying that no, it was not the Palestinian kaffiyeh design at all, just paisley, and a SCARF. Despite being categorically incorrect, the wingnuts have somehow “won” and Dunkin’ Donuts will pull the ad due to the “possibility of misperception.” Jesus.

Condi Classic Sitcom Reruns

Oh no! Condi’s stuck on repeat! Or maybe shuffle! She went places, she met people… but it all seems so familiar, like she’s just coasting for the next eight months or something. I don’t know about you, but there are some Condi reruns I’d much rather see, so let’s use the magical, revelatory power of Photoshop to pump up the Condiweek that was… after the jump, natch!

Jimmy Carter Waxes Terrorist With Hamas

Jimmy Carter started his unofficial but CONTROVERSIAL visit with Palestine’s Hamas leaders today and here are the first naughty AP pix. Look: the Hamas is such a terrorist group that they have guns! They will shoot Carter if he does not lie face-down on the cement as that greeter is clearly instructing him to do. Good Lord, Jimmy Carter is old. More pixxx after the jump!

Condi’s Running Out of Time

A Condoleezza road show is so much fun! Our Condi bounced from Egypt to Ramallah to Tel Aviv to Brussels, enjoying several perfect photo-ops along the way. The only problem was that outside the photo-ops, it was one of the most incriminating Condiweeks EVER, brimming with embarrassments, snubs, that Gaza Strip thing, and OMG, Glenn Kessler! So mean! Let’s all pile on with Glenn after the jump! Read more on Condi’s Running Out of Time…
 

Roseanne Barr Sends Thoughts, Finally

Al Gore’s endorsement may or may not ever happen. The Iraq War may go on forever. The economy is broken. However, Roseanne Barr wrote something about Barack Obama today: How will Obama handle his Jewish problem? He has to pander to the pro Zionist Jews of America and at the same time talk about dismantling support for Israel in order to appeal to his “progressive” followers. How he handles this one is very telling about his “judgment”. He just refused to condemn Israel for ghettoizing the Palestinians. Who is he really? Yes, Roseanne Arnold. We know that he’s a Muslim. We’re not stupid. [HuffPo] Read more on Roseanne Barr Sends Thoughts, Finally…
 

Bush Wonders What All the Fuss is About

So the photo-ops in Israel and Palestine are going pretty well; things are better already vis-a-vis the President’s rosy forecast. Just today, after driving through the West Bank to hold a press conference with the Palestinian President, Bush told reporters regarding the various checkpoints, “You’ll be happy to know, my whole motorcade of a mere 45 cars was able to make it through without being stopped.” They didn’t stop you? You must know someone or something. [al-Jazeera] Read more on Bush Wonders What All the Fuss is About…
 

Earth To Be Awesome Soon As Bush Is Gone

George W. Bush is on vacation in the West Bank today, telling everybody about how great things will be in 2009, after he’s mercifully out of office. According to our sad, ignored president, the Middle East will finally see peace, love and understanding next year. Why? Because everything will magically get better after Bush is gone. Here are some other predictions from our optimistic pal: Read more on Earth To Be Awesome Soon As Bush Is Gone…

Annapolis Not Breaking Into Furious Riots

The big news in fake diplomacy today is Condi’s Middle East peace conference, which held talks in Annapolis, MD this morning between Israel, Palestine, Syria and some other horribly screwed places. It just so happens that this Wonkette editor is living in Annapolis until December, so what a coinky-dink! I went down and took some pictures of the protesters, which included Code Pink, a guy who looks like Santa Claus, some old ladies and various anti-Semites. Check out the gallery, the aesthetics of which are sure to bring peace to all troubled nations across the globe.galleryPost('AnnapolisConference', 3, 'Protesters Outside the Annapolis Middle East Peace Conference'); Read more on Annapolis Not Breaking Into Furious Riots…

What has Condoleezza Rice accomplished in the past week? The answer is always the same: nothing! What has she been doing, where has she been going? Well, that’s a more complicated question.

This past week was really fun in Condiland! Like her illustrious mentor, G. H. W. Bush, she inspired a new foreign language insult! It was her birthday! Something about laser helmets!

Popular Rat Urges Destruction of Israel

Formerly beloved childhood icon Mickey Mouse has shown his true colors: he’s as reflexively anti-American as any other coked-out limousine liberal Hollywood star. “Hanoi” Mickey has been appearing regularly on a television station run by Hamas with a program dedicated to indoctrinating young Palestinian children into hating the Jews.
