Dylan, Dogs, and Dhimmis
the harmonica on the mouth holder with the guitar and the long thin
Dylan was in Israel last week for a concert. Open not only for geezers.
I just stumbled upon the following rather curious piece, on the
connection between Dylan and Meir Kahane:
Bob Dylan and Meir Kahane:
2. Carlo Strenger, psychology, TAU, has Found the Real Threat against
the Jewish People - it is Israel!
"Israel has never had a government that so blatantly violates the core
values of liberal democracy. Never has a Knesset passed laws that are
as manifestly racist as the current one. Israel has had foreign
ministers who were unworldly and didn't know English; but it has never
had a foreign minister whose only goal is to pander to his right-wing
constituency by flaunting his disdain for international law and the
idea of human rights with such relish.
"Moreover, there has never been a government so totally oblivious of
its relation to world Jewry.... How can we, who have suffered from
racial and religious discrimination, use language and hold views that
- as Israel Prize laureate and historian of fascism Zeev Sternhell
argued - were last held in the Western world by the Franco regime?"

Author Alice Walker to take part in Gaza flotilla, despite U.S. warning
The celebrated poet and novelist wrote a special piece for CNN,
outlining her intention to bring letters to the people of Gaza
'expressing solidarity and love.'
By Danna Harman
The celebrated poet and novelist Alice Walker has reiterated her
intent to participate in the upcoming flotilla to Gaza, despite a
warning by the United States State Department, which advises citizens
against joining the attempt to break Israel's naval blockade of the
The author of 'The Color Purple' wrote a special piece for CNN on
Tuesday outlining her plan to carry letters to the people of Gaza on
board the "Audacity of Hope," boat.
"We will be carrying letters …expressing solidarity and love. That is
all its cargo will consist of," Walker wrote. "If the Israeli military
attacks us, it will be as if they attacked the mailman. This should go
down hilariously in the annals of history."
"But if they insist on attacking us, wounding us, even murdering us,
as they did some of the activists in the last flotilla, Freedom
Flotilla I, what is to be done?" she asks. Her letter goes on to
talk about the brave "followers of Ghandi," and the "Jewish civil
rights activists" who stood side by side with blacks in America's
South and places her current "mission," within this context.
She concludes by rebuking Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's
policies, and those in the U.S. that back them.
"What of the children of Palestine, who were ignored in our
President's latest speech on Israel and Palestine, and whose
impoverished, terrorized, segregated existence was mocked by the
standing ovations recently given in the U.S. Congress to the prime
minister of Israel?"
The author visited Gaza in 2009, touring areas destroyed in Israel's
war with the Strip's Hamas rulers earlier that year.
In an interview she gave after her trip, Walker said her decision to
visit Gaza, along with members of the U.S. anti-war group Code Pink,
was spurred by the recent death of an older sister.
She said she felt a connection to Gazans who lost loved ones in the
war. "I wanted very much to be with them and to bear witness to what
is happening to them, this horrible, catastrophic, terrible thing,"

6. For those who think Bibi has suddenly grown a backbone, let us
point out that he has just capitulated to the terrorists and ISM
hooligans in the West Bank town of Bil'in, those who riot violently
each week and attack Israeli soldiers and police. Bibi has just
announced he will give the thugs what they want and is removing the
part of the security fence that runs near Bil'in.

Delta adopts Saudi 'no-Jew' fly policy
Challenge to discrimination building as Congress, lawyers warned of plan

Delta Air Lines' plan to add Saudi Arabian Airlines to its SkyTeam
Alliance of partnering companies would require the American carrier to
ban Jews and holders of Israeli passports from boarding flights from
New York or Washington bound for Jeddah, prompting outraged
accusations of illegal religious discrimination.
The issue, which has caught the attention of the American Center for
Law and Justice already, was raised when Washington attorney Jeffrey
Lovitky was perusing airline procedures for travel.
"As we learn more about the issue and facts, we are determined to
ensure that American citizens do not face discrimination by airlines
like Delta that are passenger code-sharing with Saudi Arabian
Airlines," said Colby M. May, director and senior counsel of the ACLJ.

Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America,"
autographed, from WND's Superstore.
"We will be communicating our position with members of Congress, the
State Department and Delta Air Lines to ensure that the rights of
American citizens are protected," he said.
The issue first was presented to Congress, the public and others by
talk radio host and former U.S. Rep. Fred Grandy, whose own battle
against discrimination was documented when his former radio station
demanded he tone down criticism of Islam on his program. He then left
Grandy and "Mrs. Fred," – Catherine – recently were interviewed by
Talk 1200 show host Jeff Katz about the controversy, which was
described as "outrageous."
Their conversation has been posted online as well as embedded:

"Creeping Shariah? Now [it is] jetspeed Shariah. Hat's off to Delta.
It looks like Delta will be the first Shariah-compliant airline in the
United States," Catherine Grandy said.
Katz noted, "As a Jewish man, I might not be able to fly on Delta Air
Lines in the future."
Fred Grandy told Katz that he spent time already this week in
Washington briefing members of Congress and other policy makers "on
this kind of threat."
"This creeping Shariah, economic jihad, gets you everywhere you turn,"
Catherine Grandy said. "This is just not right. I'm sure this will be
Fred Grandy said there were several questions raised by the
controversy, including would passengers continue to fly on Delta, what
should the government do and the advance of Shariah in the United
"If this isn't one landing strip at a time, I don't know what is," he said.
Delta officials did not respond to a WND phone call asking for
comment, but their sentiment is clear in letters they wrote to Lovitky
when he complained about their plans.
Lovitky told WND that he personally raised the issue with the Delta
CEO Richard Anderson when he discovered the plan while making travel
arrangements. He said Anderson didn't respond, but Kathy M. Johnston,
a coordinator for the airline's "Customer Care" did write a letter.
She blamed the plan to discriminate on Saudi Arabian requirements and
said Lovitky should consult the State Department.
"Delta must also comply with all applicable laws in every country it
serves and by the same token passengers are responsible to obtain the
necessary travel documents required for entry into another country
prior to their day of travel," she wrote. "If a passenger travels
without proper documents, the passenger may be denied entry into that
country and our airline may be fined. Delta assumes responsibility for
ensuring that each passenger boarding our aircraft has the proper
documents for travel to their ticketed destination."
