The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

The Near East Comes to Oakland

Goings on in Oakland and some strong statements, via Instapundit, who directs us to this Pajamas Media Blog Post.

I have labeled this "Near East" because Middle East is too broad a term to capture the Eastern Mediterranean as a focus.  Near East is an old British Term.

Bottom line here is that Yasser Kashlak, a Syrian businessman of Palestinian descent who heads the “Free Palestine Organization” says:
Gilad Schalit should go back to Paris and those murderers go back to Poland, and after that we will chase them until the ends of the earth to bring them to justice for their acts of slaughter from Deir Yassin until today.” Kashlak, a fervent Hizbullah supporter, called Israel a “rabid dog sent to the region to frighten the Arabs. He said he had a message for Israelis: ‘Get on the ships we are sending you and go back to your lands. Don’t let the moderate Arab leaders delude you, [you] cannot make peace with us. Our children will return to Palestine, you have no reason for coexistence. Even if our leaders will sign a peace agreement, we will not sign.’
This is a Helen Thomas like view.

On the other hand, reading, this evening, my wife's Term Paper for the Nazi Germany course at UMass Lowell Continuing Ed, I found that the Nazi "coordination of culture" included children's' books talking about how the Jews should go back to their area "down south".  So, where are they to go?  I am thinking that Israel is right where it is supposed to be.  If Yasser Kashlak is promising to track them down wherever they are, they might as well stay where they are.

On the other hand, the Gaza Strip needs economic development, but that requires peace.  Cue Jimmy Carter.
