Click refresh to see new updates during the day

The Lebanese army has reportedly arrested an Israeli man with psychological problems after he crossed into Lebanon yesterday.

No word yet on whether he is a member of any far leftist group.

Updates (Israel time; most recent at top)

8:25AM: Question: What’s wrinkled and emits foul sounds?

Answer:

8:15AM: According to a Smith Research poll, only 4% of Israelis see US President Barack Obama’s policies as pro-Israel, and 50% of Jewish Israelis do not support freezing settlement construction for a year as part of an American-brokered deal (compared to 41% in favor).

8:o2AM: Elder of Moron Desmond “the owl” Tutu on the lesson Israel should learn from the Holocaust:

“The lesson that Israel must learn from the Holocaust is that it can never get security through fences, walls and guns,” Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu of South Africa told Haaretz Thursday.

Actually, I would have thought it was the need to defend ourselves against people who make clear their intentions to murder us. But I do tend to read too much into things.

“But who pays the penance? The penance is being paid by the Arabs, by the Palestinians. I once met a German ambassador who said Germany is guilty of two wrongs. One was what they did to the Jews. And now the suffering of the Palestinians.”

He also slammed Jewish organizations in the United States, saying they intimidate anyone who criticizes the occupation and rush to accuse these critics of anti-Semitism. Tutu recalled how such organizations pressured U.S. universities to cancel his appearances on their campuses.

“That is unfortunate, because my own positions are actually derived from the Torah. You know God created you in God’s image. And we have a God who is always biased in favor of the oppressed.”

He said the West was consumed with guilt and regret toward Israel because of the Holocaust, “as it should be.”

Yes, this is a man who can act as an honest broker to bring about peace. Cut in the same mold as fellow (Elder of) Moron Jimmy Carter.
