Saturday Morning Video: Benjamin Netanyahu Before U.S. Congress

by thefulllidvmg

Drink your morning coffee, sit back, do your Saturday cleaning, and enjoy Bibi’s pep talk to the U.S. Congress (which gave him 27 standing ovations compared to Obama’s 25 before him. When was the last time this happened and it was labeled anything else but unpatriotic and inciting treason?)

Also, when it’s done, check out this map and see how difficult it would be to establish a two-state solution between Israel and Palestine.

I’ve been clicking on the links to find further info, and i dunno man it really does not look good for the police. There was a bit i found that said that the SWAT team didnt allow paramedics to assist the dying former marine for at least an hour. Regardless of whether or not a suspect is guilty, allowing him to die in such a way is just plain wrong in the first place, and also extremely detrimental to the integrity of the investigation, and it speaks loudly against their concern for human life.

Damn the story really surprised me, and i know there’s got to be some aspects to the story that we will never know for sure, but its a very unfortunate situation nonetheless.

Indeed.
