Blanche is currently in California, with the three hour time difference and all. Ergo, this blog will be slightly shorter than the others.
As Golda Meir said, when they will love their children more than they hate us, we will have peace. The world would be wise to heed her words. Manchester is the latest in a string of horrific bombings aimed at not only killing the ‘infidels’, but maiming them and using nail bombs to incur the worst kind of injuries. This time it was children they were after.
Talking to isis is not an option. Pretending that the United Nations, run by the thugs of the world, will bring some kind of truce is not an option. So Blanche, what is the option?
Allowing Israel, with the best intelligence and who lives 24/7 with a knife at their throat to take the lead in organizing countries, as many as possible, to go after isis on two fronts: on the ground and in cyberspace where isis seems to be able to find many of the best recruits. When France, Britain, the US, Canada and many other countries will stop being politically correct and wake up to the realize that what they are doing is not working, perhaps the world can begin to take on the biggest curse and threat we have now.
Trump’s tour of the middle east is going as Trump goes. His visit to the Western Wall (kotel) was moving as he stood before the all, with a kippah on his head, silently praying. Then he had a cringe-worthy press conference where he announced, in Israel, that he had just come from the middle east (meaning Saudi Arabia).
Blanche, we think he meant, as many other people think, that he returned from the enemy part of the middle east and is now in the one and only friendly, democracy in the middle east.
He then reaffirmed the United State’s unbreakable bond with Israel, something Israel has not heard in over eight years. Of course his speech was written by someone else, but he still had to utter the words written, which he did with feeling:
“Israel is a testament to the unbreakable spirit of the Jewish people,” Mr. Trump said. “One message resounds, and that is the message of hope, they have endured and they have thrived. I stand in awe of the accomplishments of the Jewish people and I make this promise to you my administration will always stand with Israel.”
Who doesn’t think that PK Subban is not saying ‘how sweet it is’? His new team, the Nashville Predators, are going to play in the Stanley cup against either Ottawa or Pittsburgh. Can we talk?
Blanche, if Ottawa in fact does play against Subban, who are you going to root for? The Canadian team or Subban who, if he wins, will a) bring the Stanley cup to the Children’s hospital and b) bring the Stanley cup to the head office of the Montreal Canadiens.
Given all of the above, the worst nightmare of Gary Bettman, the NHL commissioner is a Nashville and Ottawa showdown. Small city teams that no one from New York, Los Angeles or anywhere in between cares one hoot about are not going to generate very much advertiser income.
Anyone see those signs in the by-election in Gouin? The signs show two women: one wears a toque, while the other wears a niqab. The message beneath reads (in French), “Choose your Quebec: Canadian multiculturalism? No thanks!” Not quite politically correct, eh Blanche?
This ties into the first story here. True, not all muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are muslims. What’s a thinking person to do, including muslims? And as we have said more times than we can count, until the muslim community takes hold of themselves and starts monitoring the imams and young men who are prone to becoming radicalized, signs like the ones above will continue to be put up.
