Ynet's Washington reporter, Yitzhak Ben - Horin, produced last night a clear and succinct reading of Obama's recent UN General Assembly address:
"Likudnic in the White House."
"Netanyahu could not have written it better."
"Obama at this point, is in line with the Likud party."
"Obama is a pro-Israel president …Since January 2009, he provided Israel with all its needs both in diplomacy and in terms of security"
Obama is not performing too well in the polls. He clearly needs the Jewish Lobby on his side. The American president 'provided' yesterday and the lobby was quick to react- "Israel has no better friend in the world today," wrote the president of the National Council of Jewish Democrats, David Harris.
According to Ynet, hours before his UN General Assembly Address Obama sought to ensure that prospective Jewish voters pay close attention to his speech.
"Three of Obama's aides held a conference call with the president's Jewish supporters and community leaders. The advisers, all Jewish themselves, asked the supporters to "spread the word" that Obama will give a pro-Israel speech which reflects his own genuine positions and implored them to pay close attention to the president's UN address."
Gilad Atzmon: It seems as if some Jews really like my new book. I may even manage to get the necessary message across. However, the man behind Rainlore World Of Music is a pretty unique character. I hope Harry's Place & Co are not going to terrorise him for being honest.
Literary Review: Gilad Atzmon - The Wandering Who? - A Study Of Jewish Identity Politics
A Study Of Jewish Identity Politics
zero books, 2011
Gilad Atzmon is a man on what could be described as a holy quest: he is a true seeker of truth, beauty and freedom. This is, and always has been, a dangerous pathto tread. But Atzmon is a genuinely courageous man, far beyond mere chutzpah, and even if for nothing else you have to admire, even envy him for this. The Wandering Who? is his latest endeavour to share this search for truth and freedom.
It is published by zero books on 4th October, 2011 and should be widely available through book stores and online sources such as Amazon.
"Liberty, if it means anything, is the right to tell people what they don't want to hear." This is the boldly stated 'mission statement' emblazoned on the racist 'Harry's Place' web page. And yet, with Atzmon's book not even available for several weeks yet, it was the same 'Harry's Place' that was at the forefront of a campaign against bothauthor and work! The publishers, Zero Books, the editors, and Atzmon himself have already been, to quote the author, 'subjected to immense and intense pressure that included harassment, intimidation, and even anonymous threats, as the demands mounted on my publisher to pull the book.'
