The overtly, embarrassingly pro-Israel Democratic party candidate is dead.
Long live, erm, the other embarrassingly pro-Israel Democratic party candidate?
No sooner has Zion's biggest fan, Clinton II, finally fallen as a candidate for POTUS, than the actual candidate-elect, a black sunnovaMuslim, goes and offers Israel a united Jerusalem as their capital.
Now, for those whose eyes glaze over at the mere thought of the mess that is the Middle East, I'll keep this microscopically brief:
East Jerusalem has been Arab, both Christian and Muslim flavours, for well over a thousand years. Israel conquered it in 1967 and won't give it back even though the whole world keeps telling them too, even America.
Instead, they built a ruddy big wall around it and are building a ring of settlements around East Jerusalem and kicking out the Arab residents of the city with a combination of eviction orders, refusals to permit sales to Arabs or permitting sales only to Jews, and the splitting of families by the wall.
And yup, that is the shortest I could make that.
Anyhow, those Palestinians look like continuing to roll ones in the craps game of life. No matter who was going to win the Democratic nomination, even the black sorta Muslim guy, is overtly, embarrassingly pro-Israel.
It's some state of affairs for Palestinians to know that the best they can hope for in the next half-decade is for a McCain presidency.
But hey, on the plus side for the good guys, a Sandinista got elected next UN general assembly president.
