Sorry about the light posting but my ‘puter just isn’t working properly, so this is sort of a mini photo bomb.

For your viewing pleasure:

    Thanks Stacy…It’s amazing how many pictures you post that I have never seen before. Almost never a duplicate.

    I watched the speech at the Commonwealth Club in SF on CSpan. Not sure if they have it available on video. She was especially great with the question & answer period. Really good.

    Awesome pics, thanks! Some of those are from her trip to the Balkans, right? They are different than the ones I have seen.

    We need Hills on the Sunday talk shows again- Axelrod and Gibbs suck.

    ps. Stacy, you need to get on the NYT’s Ethan Bronner again- I’m sure you’ve seen his latest. He’s really turning the screws and it almost seems like it’s a direct response to what you talked to him about the week before. The guy is so biased he shouldn’t be covering that part of the world. I get the feeling your silence on this issue lately is a form of protest. No worries, we’ve got your back😉

      Yes, those look like they are from her recent trip. I hadn’t seen these particular ones either.

      Regarding Bronner- I’m going to jump in here. He really does have a conflict of interest given his son is in the IDF. I saw what Stacy wrote over at TM and agree. It sounds like she had a more personal conversation with Bronner though and I remember her saying something about that here.

      Stacy- hope your computer is doing ok- we look forward to more updates and thanks for the fantastic photos!🙂

      HA! Thain and Tovah, I read his article and I thought the exact same thing. He totally put that paragraph in about the legality of settlements in response to the criticism from Phil Weiss and Stacy. They were the only ones who went directly to Bronner and complained. You guys clearly got under his skin because methinks he doth protest too much. Of course, his son is in the IDF and defends the occupation, so he has a horse in this race so to speak. If I remember correctly, Stacy brought it up when she spoke to him. I showed my wife his article and she just rolled her eyes and said “typical.”

      Hats off to you Stacy- I respect how you are always going directly to the journalists themselves to confront them with problems in their reporting. Most people just b*tch and moan about media bias or this or that and you actually do something about it.

        I’m glad I am not the only one who thought his latest article was a bit defensive. That said, I wouldn’t be so quick to give me so much credit. Phil Weiss and I certainly weren’t the only ones critical of his reporting. It is interesting though that he wrote the bit about calling the embassies in Jerusalem to see which countries considered the settlements illegal. He and I spoke specifically about that (not about calling embassies but about his claim that the settlements’ legality was still open to question according to some countries).

    Thank goodness liberal Israeli Jews get it. Democracy or ethnic nationalism/ethnic purity? American Jews have incorrectly conflated Palestinian recognition of Israel as a Jewish state with recognition in general, something Palestinians did a long time ago. Why isn’t enough for Israel. Here’s why- it’s a final status issue and if the Palestinians do this up front, then they lose the right of return, will be second class citizens if any stay in Israel proper and on and on. It also creates second class status for Israel’s Christians.

    Israel has become so obsessed with racial/ethnic/religious purity in a way that really undermines its democratic values. Many Israeli Jews understand this, even if American Jews don’t.

    Any minute now the American press will report this. I am sooooooo sure!

    Imagine if it were a Palestinian doing that to Israeli farms owned by Jewish people. The OUTRAGE!
