On Monday we posted a 5 minute video of Dennis Prager (who is Jewish) explaining in very simple terms his take on the Israeli/Palestinian debacle, sent to us by one of our readers, Nannette.

Yesterday, Steve G. (who is Jewish) sent me an email of a similar text written by Dennis Miller (who is not Jewish). Like Dennis Prager’s take, Miller’s thoughts are mostly secular but dead-on in accuracy and with the Miller wit added on.

Enjoy

“Here we go:
The Palestinians want their own country. There’s just one thing about that: There are no Palestinians. It’s a made up word. Israel was called Palestine for two thousand years. Like ‘Wiccan,’ ‘Palestinian’ sounds ancient but is really a modern invention. Before the Israelis won the land in the 1967 war, Gaza was owned by Egypt, the West Bank was owned by Jordan, and there were no ‘Palestinians.’
 
As soon as the Jews took over and started growing oranges as big as basketballs, what do you know, say hello to the ‘Palestinians,’ weeping for their deep bond with their lost ‘land’ and ‘nation.’
 
So for the sake of honesty, let’s not use the word ‘Palestinian’ any more to describe these delightful folks, who dance for joy at our deaths until someone points out they’re being taped. Instead, let’s call them what they are: ‘Other Arabs Who Can’t Accomplish Anything In Life And Would Rather Wrap Themselves In The Seductive Melodrama Of Eternal Struggle And Death.’ I know that’s a bit unwieldy to expect to see on CNN. How about this, then: ‘Adjacent Jew-Haters.’ Okay, so the Adjacent Jew-Haters want their own country. Oops, just one more thing: No, they don’t. They could’ve had their own country. Anytime in the last thirty years, especially several years ago at Camp David. But If you have your own country, you have to have traffic lights and garbage trucks. And Chambers of Commerce, and, worse, you actually have to figure out some way to make a living.
 
That’s no fun. No, they want what all the other Jew-Haters in the region want: Israel. They also want a big pile of dead Jews, of course that’s where the real fun is — but mostly they want Israel.
 
Why? For one thing, trying to destroy Israel – or ‘The Zionist Entity’ as their textbooks call it — for the last fifty years has allowed the rulers of Arab countries to divert the attention of their own people away from the fact that they’re the blue-ribbon most illiterate, poorest, and tribally backward on God’s Earth, and if you’ve ever been around God’s Earth, you know that’s really saying something.
 
It makes me roll my eyes every time one of our pundits waxes poetic about the great history and culture of the Muslim Mideast. Unless I’m missing something, the Arabs haven’t given anything to the world since Algebra, and, by the way, thanks a he– of a lot for that one.

Chew this around and spit it out: Five hundred million Arabs; five Million Jews.
 
Think of all the Arab countries as a football field, and Israel as a pack of matches sitting in the middle of it. And now these same folks swear that if Israel gives them half of that pack of matches, everyone will be pals.
 
Really? Wow, what neat news.
Hey, but what about the string of wars to obliterate the tiny country and the constant din of rabid blood oaths to drive every Jew into the sea? Oh, that? We were just kidding.
 
My friend, Kevin Rooney, made a gorgeous point the other day: Just reverse the numbers.
Imagine five hundred million Jews and five million Arabs. I was stunned at the simple brilliance of it. Can anyone picture the Jews strapping belts of razor blades and dynamite to themselves? Of course not.
Or marshalling every fibre and force at their disposal for generations to drive a tiny Arab State into the sea? Nonsense.
  
Or dancing for joy at the murder of innocents? Impossible.
  
Or spreading and believing horrible lies about the Arabs baking their bread with the blood of children? Disgusting.
  
No, as you know, left to themselves in a world of peace, the worst Jews would ever do to people is debate them to death.
  
However, in any big-picture strategy, there’s always a danger of losing moral weight. We’ve already lost some.
After September 11th our president told us and the world he was going to root out all terrorists and the countries that supported them. Beautiful.
Then the Israelis, after months and months of having the equivalent of an Oklahoma City every week (and then every day) start to do the same thing we did, and we tell them to show restraint.
  
If America were being attacked with an Oklahoma City every day, we would all very shortly be screaming for the administration to just be done with it and kill everything south of the Mediterranean and east of the Jordan.”

Breitbart: “The UN’s top human rights official again condemned Israel for its military actions to stop Hamas rocket attacks against Israeli civilians, accusing the Jewish state of “deliberately defying International Law… in a way that may constitute war crimes.

The UN chairwoman criticized the U.S. for helping fund Israel’s Iron Dome system which has saved countless Israeli and Palestinian lives. “No such protection has been provided to Gazans against the shelling,” she said.

Opinion: Thanks to our friend Steve S. who sent this in: “Sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying. This is absolutely bizarre and unimaginable. Of course, this is the same UN Human Rights Council that elected the late Libyan terrorist Gadaffi to head the Human Rights Council in 2006.

Can you imagine home invaders whining that you have weapons in your home they don’t have and accusing you of a crime for not sharing your weapons with them for a “fair” home invasion?

Icing on the cake…our tax dollars fund 22% of this UN foolishness.”

The Wire: “In a phone call between the two men on Sunday, President Obama stressed several points, which could be divined in slightly contradictory lights: The President underscored the United States’ strong condemnation of Hamas’ rocket and tunnel attacks against Israel and reaffirmed Israel’s right to defend itself.  The President also reiterated the United States’ serious and growing concern about the

Netanyahu’s dilemma: Back Obama’s save Hamas policy, or fight for its downfall with Egypt and Saudis

Debkafile: “Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu entangled himself Saturday and Sunday, July 26-27,  in the net he had cast to blur the effect of the unanimous decision by the security-political cabinet of Friday to turn down the ceasefire proposals proposed by US Secretary of State John Kerry and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. The two diplomats
