Bloomberg runs for cover

A spokesman for Mayor Michael Bloomberg said a rocket alarm went off during his visit to an Israeli town Sunday causing him to take cover in an emergency operations center until an all-clear was sounded.

The mayor is spending the day in Israel to show support for the country as it battles Palestinian militants in Gaza.

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly and Queens congressman Gary Ackerman are also traveling with him.

They are scheduled to be back in the city by Monday morning.


Bloomberg Takes Cover During Trip To Israel

I wonder if this is like Hillary's Bosnia story. Funny how the press reports on the mayor's every move in a foreign land but won't cover this. If Giuliani were still in office, the Brooklyn rally would have been their lead story.

This story is likely true, compared to Ms (Edmund) Hillary.
There is virtually no location in Israel that is not within range of enemy missiles.
Sadly the enemy cares less about their children then they do about killing Jews. (paraphrase of Golda Meir) Much like the Nazi missiles they are not accurate to be of military value. They are only useful for terror.
Imagine if the Village were the target for missiles fired from New Jersey for the last two years? Do you think NYC would just sit there and take it?

All this being covered while people are being shot at in broad day light, sometimes I think he should be hung out to dry.

Here are several clues I spotted that indicate the article is lying:

"More than 500 Palestinians have been killed since Israel's offensive began last Saturday."

How does NY1 verify this count? How many of the 500 are terrorists? Children? Women? the elderly?

Where were any "civilians" located in reference to the terrorists' and their rockets?

Why is there no similar body count of Israelis killed by Hamas' rockets? How many civilians? Women? Children? Elderly? How many of Hamas' rockets have landed on homes, schools. hospitals?

"The Israeli military said its troops killed or wounded dozens of militant fighters but Gaza's ruling Hamas party said only four fighters had been killed."

Why the reference to "militant fighters"? Why does NY1 adopt the terminology of the terrorists? These are terrorist killers. Why does it quote "Gaza's ruling Hamas party" to "refute" what the Israeli military says, but not vice versa?

"Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas is expected in New York on Tuesday to urge the council to adopt a cease fire agreement."

Why does NY1 omit the assertion of so many Israeli officials who state that when Hamas stops the rockets, the retaliation stops?

With all the lies I spotted, it's easy to believe that NY1 invented the "heroism" of the Commissar to enhance his election to a stolen third term. Yes, this is a "Bosnia" tale.

Leftists always lie. It is part of the job. Lies are used to control and manipulate.

Be stupid and believe the lies that please you.

Taxpayer? Get a clue.

Since 1948 or even 1947 with the invasion of the Zionists,which is a racial supremicist movement, there has been massacre's in 400 to 500 villages and Palestinians didnt have weapons until much too late.Folks you need to really think.He supports the war in Iraq(a country with a dictator installed by the U.S. and British to grab oil in 1968) uncritically in any way just like bush.At this point theres well over 600 deaths of Palestinians.They didnt just sit and take land no one was living on, they took it by force.
Someone with a brain tell me about Sabra and Shatila or Deir Yassin??
No that would be too hard.Instead pretend to disagree with him but agree with him at the same time that supposedly everyone there are victims in Israel the new state of 1948.

Why have no Arab nations taken in and cared for the "Palestinians"?

Why have the Zionists been capable of transforming deserts into fully blooming, agricultural successes?

Why have the "Palestinians" refused to ever humble themselves and ask for training in doing the same for their own lands?

Why have the "Palestinians" refused to even arrange to sewer and sanitation systems and the construction of homes made of a material other than mud?

Why do "Palestinians" prefer to strap bombs to their own children in order to kill and maim Zionists? Is that parental devotion?

Why do "Palestinians" train their own family members to be homicide bombers while their "leaders" always have other, more important jobs than blowing themselves to bits? I guess that's just simple patriotism. Leaders who direct the killing are always so special.

Why do generation after generation of "Palestinians" prefer ignorance, poverty, illiteracy, hunger and living in infested slums, over making peace with the Zionists? Perhaps that's the "Palestinian" form of "Love thy Neighbor"?

What say you, anti-Semitic moron Anon?

Let Bloomberg run for Mayor of Jerusalem. There he can tell everyone that he's going to take their guns and not check the immigration status of anyone involved in a crime. See how far that goes.

he should stay there

Why is this the only international news - and covered from four angles.


Why are Bloomberg and Ackerman et al over there?

Well, Taxpayer, Channel 7 had footage of the mayor getting into a bomb shelter after a Hamas rocket was sighted, followed by a brief interview. But, then again, the leftist media must have made that up, too. Please, before you type, do some fact-checking.

they should shoot him so we can have a better life in nyc PLEASE he made life more of a struggle

Like most mainstream Jews, I strongly support Israel. At the same time, I also feel that mayor Bloomberg should focus on his job above foreign solidarity trips. If he takes so many trips abroad, maybe he doesn't want a third term after all?

Man.. I completely forgot about "WMDs" in Iraq! Wait... Bush and Co. are "leftists???"

Having the desert covered with orange groves isn't exactly a "green"
environmentally friendly solution.

The Arabs are smarter.
Date palms require less water.

But Israeli chutzpah requires dominating nature and bending it to their will.

It would be funny to see Bloomberg with the tip of a Hamas rocket stuck up his ass (just joking)!

Anonymous said...

A Patriot Missile would be funnier. And not out of the question...

Taxpayer said...

Now, who said there were WMD in Iraq?

Was it The two Clinton grifters?
Was it Kerry?
Was it Gore?
Did the Clinton Grifter set US foreign policy toward Iraq to be that Hussein (the one from Iraq) had to suffer regime change? Was that because of his possession and development of WMD?

Who used WMD on the Kurds? Clinton or Hussein? (again, the one from Iraq)

Whoops! You failed to read the research. Or, you just failed to learn to read.

I was seen going into my basement this weekends. My supporters later reported that I was fleeing a rocket attack. Or a sniper attack. I don't remember which.

In any event, now I'm the neighborhood here, because my neighbors videotaped the event and reported it, while I humbly told everybody: Shucks, it weren't nuthin. I was jest going downstairs to get a can of beer.

Supporters and unthinking neighbors. They'd lie about anything and everyone will fall for it.

I say they're manipulative morons. But, I get away with looking like a hero - a humble hero.

Yes the right wing liar just look bloomie,taxpayer.Where the hell do you think Fava beans,dates,grapes,figs,almonds, and many other vegetables come from?Palestine.

So your gonna play the ant semite card because you cant criticize anything Israel does.You know nothing of the past or present.Even Eisenhower was tough with the Israelis because they had displaced thousands with Deir Yassin.Look it up and do yourself a favor.
Patriotism is the last refugee of the scoundral.And so is playing the race card.Palestinians are a semitic people.Not a very well read guy on the origins of Christianity either are you.

The question was simple: "Who used WMD on the Kurds? Clinton or Hussein? (again, the one from Iraq)"

What does reference to the buyer or seller have to do with who USED it?

Just say so if you don't know. But, your diversionary reply tells me that you do know and are too dishonest to write his name.

As I said, lying is the leftist, Stalinist, MO.

Here's some advice that will help you in the future: Take some evening classes in spelling, grammar and simple sentence formation. Then, take a class in writing. Some classes are even designed so well that even morons can learn something.

I responded to your babble nonsense about Clinton.You my friend and others on here have used the term Jew berg before when talking about local bloomberg issues and have done it repeatedly,so dont yell ant semitism.If you have time to sit in front a screen all day you should be a lot more well rounded, but you sound as rabid as Bill O'rielly.

Bush senior and Rumsfeld sold weapons to Iraq and Iran in the 1980's.If you look it up maybe you can find video because I dont think you read anything you disagree with or much at all.Your rants make little sense there pseudo historian.No one takes your pit bull talk seriously except 3 other ultra right people on here.
Good luck there taxman.

Since the Lebanese and Palestinian societies were very similar in many areas, then it's easy to conclude that Palestinians would have produced as much as the Lebanese if it wasn't for their dispossession by the Israelis.

It should be emphasized that even the most zealous of Zionists will find it hard to disprove that Jaffa's citrus plantations were first planted, marketed to Europe, packaged, and harvested by mainly Palestinian Arab companies, click here for the proof. As early as 1891, Ahad Ha'Am (a leading Eastern European Jewish essayist) tried to open many Jewish eyes to the fact that Palestine was not a desolate place, he reported upon visiting Palestine for three months in 1891:

"We abroad are used to believe the Eretz Yisrael is now almost totally desolate, a desert that is not sowed ..... But in truth that is not the case. Throughout the country it is difficult to find fields that are not sowed. Only sand dunes and stony mountains .... are not cultivated."

This baseless myth, although an outright lie, attempts to paint a romantic vision for the "Promised Land" i.e. that it was destitute for 2,000 years until the "returning Jews" made its desert "bloom". It is sad to see how far this myth has been propagated in the Israeli school system and society in order to legitimize the continued collective dispossession of the Palestinian people.

Also almonds,dates,prunes,vegetables, and beans(fava, and chickpeas) were grown there for hundreds, if not thousands of years.

The terror gangs of Irgun Zvai Leumi (IZL or ETZEL) and Stern Gang (LEHI) headed by the former Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin
Local village militia
Israeli acts of terror The former Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin terror gang (IZL or ETZEL) committed the famous massacre which resulted in the murder of 94 people, many women and children. It is worth noting that 25 of the survivors were paraded in West Jerusalem as trophies, who later were brought back to Deir Yassin and murdered. Israeli declassified intelligence report describing the massacre.
Exodus Cause Expulsion by Jewish troops
Village remains:
After destruction by Israelis Deir Yassin mostly survived destruction (a strange miracle), and currently it is being used by Israeli Jewish settlers.
Ethnically cleansing
by Israelis Dayr Yasin inhabitants were completely ethnically cleansed.
Many who survived the massacre ended up in refugee camps around Jerusalem and some in Amman, Jordan.

Whether it be the Zionists, ancient Hebrews, Persians, Romans, yadda, yadda....one thing is certain:

In this part of the world the desert sands will continue to soak up more blood as it has for thousands of years.

None of these people want to co-exist in peace until one (or the other) is eventually obliterated.

And nobody really gives a damn except for the fact that THERE'S OIL IN THE REGION!

Not exactly true.Theres arabic and other Jews living in Iran,Morocco,and other Middle eastern areas and have had no problem because there not displacing natives and putting them in refugee camps for the last 60 years.The Persian Jews were asked to move to Israel buy the Israeli govt but they didnt want to leave their homes and were not pressured to by Iran.
