Reuters Worker Issues "Zionist Pig" Death Threat to American Blogger...and other news.

With my blog careening wildly in all directions, I had to take a break and share the following tidbits with you.

1. Reuters (our favorite objective pro-Israel news agency) employee issues 'Zionist pig' death threat to an American Blogger: 'I look forward to day when you pigs get your throats cut'. (hattip: Ynet)

Well, I'm glad he didn't write that to me. As Jameel @ The Muqata (of American decent) I would have been able to riot and burn down Reuters Corporate Headquarters, since Moslems (or their God) are not allowed to be called pigs. Period.

2. Pathetic Proteczia -- How Olmert helps out the Hamas Prime Minister's 18 year old daughter who was arrested for illegally entering Israel to visit her fiance in jail (she used someone else's ID). Olmert's office is doing its best to prevent unneccessary escalation of the issue and she's already been let free to return to Gaza.

Can't we just let love and peace reign free? I guess there's nothing like young love...which overcomes all. Oh yeah, her fiance is in jail for 15 years for attempted murder.

3. Secular Zionism as the Authentic Jewish Idea? Ha'Aretz has an Op/Ed piece about secular zionist conversions. Bottom Line of his article:

"If secular people are the real continuation of the continuum of Jewish existence, then they have a responsibility toward those who are knocking on the door of their nation. They must not forfeit conversion."

Secular Zionism is not a religion and neither is secular Judaisim. Secularism is the absense of religion and not a "denomination" (while Conservative and Reform are.) Just found this interesting blog analyis by Bari ViShema. Or for something more uplifting for Shavuot, read about this conversation he transcribed.

Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael

Re your second headline: it is *unconfirmed* at this time if "Olmert is helping" Haniyeh's daughter.

And it should be noted that it is very normal practice to find Palestinians from the territories using someone else's ID to get in and around Israel: And while in worst case scenarios, they're trying to kill us, in the large majority of scenarios, they're trying to work to support their families, or see their relatives.

The LGF one is ammusing - I have been following it on thier site.

Why don't they place Ms. Haniyah in the cell with her B-Friend...

The Chiloni Religion is a well based one in this country - it has head Idiot named Tomi, a Few fanatics - Shula Aloni and Co. and a even their own bible (what ever it is, Im against it!). They should start allowing them to convert people.

How would one convert to secular Zionism?

I'm not surprised about the death threat coming from a Reuters employee. What does surprise me (as it did Mr. Johnson) is that the idiot was stupid enough to do it from a traceable work account.

Olmert is helping out Hamas? Doesn't surprise me...

Who the heck "converts" to secularism? Granted, I have a relative who fairly recently became an ardent secular Zionist, but she wasn't religious to begin with, so that's different.

Search the Muqata
