28th-Oct-2008 11:12 am - Defending McCain on "Weird Jews"
Top Hat
I've been defending McCain like mad on the "Weird Jews" community. You can see the discussion at the following link... http://community.livejournal.com/weirdjews/1912819.html

The subject is "US election mud-slinging targets PA Jewish voters".

The liberal Jews have been going a little nutty lately.

I'm still a Republican but I can't handle Palin. I have to vote for the lesser of 2 evils here.

Join me at a new comm if you wish. This one will remain as is and untouched. Stable. I'm STILL a REPUBLICAN.

RJC: With Biden, Obama Ticket Gets Riskier

Washington, D.C. (August 23, 2008) -- Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) Executive Director Matt Brooks issued the following statement today:

"With the selection of Senator Joe Biden as Senator Obama's vice president, the Democrat's ticket has now become an even greater gamble for the Jewish community.  Throughout his career, Senator Biden has consistently been wrong on Iran and his voting record on Israel has been inconsistent.  Like Obama, Biden fundamentally misunderstands the threat posed by an Iran determined to obtain nuclear weapons.  Biden has continuously demonstrated poor judgment on Iran.  He has voted against significant legislation that would pressure Iran to stop pursuing nuclear weapons.  Biden has failed to recognize the serious threat that Iran poses to Israel and the US and its allies in the Middle East," said RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks.  
In 1998, Sen. Biden was one of only four senators to vote against the Iran Missile Proliferation Sanctions Act, a bill that punished foreign companies or other entities that sent Iran sensitive missile technology or expertise.  Biden was one of the few senators to oppose the bipartisan 2007 Kyl-Lieberman Ammendment labeling the Iranian Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization.  In a December 2007 debate, Biden said "Iran is not a nuclear threat to the United States of America."  On MSNBC's "Hardball," Biden said he "never believed" Iran had a weapon system under production.  

"The Jewish community was already gravely concerned with Senator Obama's naïve understanding of the Iranian threat.  An Obama-Biden ticket has proven that it is ill-equipped to deal with this threat. By selecting Senator Biden to join his ticket, voting for Senator Obama has now become an even greater risk," said Brooks.

Say no more: Transsexual Israeli tops Lebanese song chart

Jun. 26, 2008

While overtures recently made by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and President Shimon Peres toward the Lebanese government to enter into direct peace talks have fallen on deaf ears, that doesn't mean the Lebanese are tuning out everything Israeli.

"Say No More," a pulsating trance music track by up-and-coming Israeli female singer Aderet and DJ Dvir Halevi, has been at the top of the playlist this month on the "Beirut Nights" Internet radio station devoted to dance music (www.beirutnights.com).

"We found out they were playing my music by chance," the 32-year-old Aderet said on Wednesday. She grew up in a religious home in Jerusalem and launched her musical career after undergoing a sex change operation following her IDF service over 10 years ago.

"I put out a dance single last year - a cover of Alice DJ's 'Better Off Alone' - which was big in the clubs in Israel, and when our production team did a search on Google, we found the song on lots of playlists around Europe and on Beirut Nights."

When Aderet sent the Web site an e-mail thanking them for playing the song, she received a response requesting more of her English songs. The singer, who has previously released two albums in Hebrew - 2001's Tenth Floor and 2005's Without the Evil Eye - is readying her first English-language album, Jewish Girl, for release later this year. A month ago, her management sent the album's first single, "Say No More," and a remix of the song by DJ Dvir Halevi to the Lebanese station.

"They added the remix to the playlist and a few days later, it was at the top of the most played list," said Aderet, who regularly performs at clubs, weddings and private functions in Israel and Europe.

On the Web site's "Eurodance and Trance Songs" chat forum, the forum's administrator described the song as an "uplifting tune with super nice lyrics."

"They know I'm an Israeli singer, and that it's an Israeli song," said Aderet. "It feels great, it's a big honor for me and makes me so happy that they let a 100 percent Israeli song to be played and to top their playlist without letting politics interfere."

When contacted by The Jerusalem Post a representative of Beirut Nights named Sami responded in an e-mail that Israeli music was regularly featured on the station.

"We grew up in Beirut listening to Ofra Haza and Ishtar Alabina," Sami said. "We play Aderet, but also Dana International, Sarit Hadad, and DJs Yahel and Ofer Nissim. It's not a policy because there is no policy, it is just music. You shouldn't make a big deal about it, because it might hurt us since we are surrounded by fanatics who ultimately have no place in Lebanon.

"If you ask 70% of the Lebanese population, they would tell you that Iran is more of an enemy than Israel. If the government needs to implement laws, they should start with laws against terrorists like Hizbullah rather than implement old outdated rules," he said.

While Beirut Nights is only an Internet radio station, Sami claimed it was the most widely listened to site among the Lebanese diaspora, while acknowledging that its reach within Lebanon itself was limited.

Aderet is hopeful that the popularity of "Say No More" will snowball into something more significant, not just for her but for Israel.

"I hope that it will enable more Israeli musicians to break through there, and that maybe through music and the people who love club music, it could help start to bring peace between the Israeli and Lebanese people," she said.•

6th-Jun-2008 12:27 pm - "A Hollywood Republican! GASP!"
Go Ahead, Make His Day

Filed under: Celebrity Feuds > Film Flickers > Old People
From PerezHilton.com

Clint Eastwood sat down with the British media and let loose on everything from his feud with Spike Lee to his support of John McCain. A Hollywood Republican! GASP!

Here are some of the sit-down highlights:

In regards to Spike Lee's gripe that Clint Eastwood failed to tip a hat to the contributions of a small African American unit on Iwo Jima in the war flick Flags of Our Fathers: "Has he (Spike) ever studied the history?" asked Clint. Yes, there was a small detachment of black troops on Iwo Jima as a part of a munitions company, "but they didn't raise the flag. The story is Flags of Our Fathers, the famous flag-raising picture, and they didn't do that. If I go ahead and put an African-American actor in there, people'd go, 'This guy's lost his mind.' I mean, it's not accurate." "A guy like him should shut his face."

On being labeled a Hollywood Republican Clint says, "I don't pay attention to either side. I mean, I've always been a libertarian. Leave everybody alone. Let everybody else do what they want. Just stay out of everybody else's hair. So I believe in that value of smaller government. Give politicians power and all of a sudden they'll misuse it on ya."

And what about John McCain? Eastwood tells the Brit reporter, "My wife used to be an anchorwoman in Arizona, so she knew John McCain and she liked him and I kinda liked him. In fact, we sort of supported him when he was running the first time against Bush eight years ago. But we haven't been active as yet. It's kind of a zoo out there right now. So I think I'll kinda let things percolate."

Violence Mars Bush's Israel Trip for 60th Anniversary

May 14 (Bloomberg) -- President George W. Bush's visit to Israel today to mark the country's 60th anniversary was marred by violence and warnings by Israel's leader that the military will do what it must to stop rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip.

A few hours after Bush arrived, a Palestinian rocket fired from the Gaza Strip struck a mall in Ashkelon, a coastal city of about 110,000 people. Dozens were injured. Earlier, Israeli airstrikes killed three Palestinian militants and a civilian in the Gaza Strip, Palestinian medical officials said.
