President Abbas: what are you waiting for?

16 Apr

Two nights ago, off duty Israel Police Chief Superintendent Baruch Mizrahi was killed in his car.

According to the JTA:

Mizrahi, 47, a father of five, was shot and killed while driving with his family to a Passover seder in the Jewish community in Hebron. His wife, who was in the car with him, and their 9-year-old son, who was in another car, also were wounded.

It’s not yet clear who was responsible. The security forces have not yet managed to find any suspects.

Despite that, what we can all agree on, is that this is terrorism, in its ugliest form. Shooting people who are travelling in cars packed full of women and children is horrendous and reprehensible. Such an act must be condemned immediately by all sides.

But Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has decided to wait until a full investigation of the incident was completed, and only then to condemn the killing.

What does he need to wait for? Why doesn’t Abbas condemn the killing by calling it a crime, no matter who was responsible? What exactly does he hope to gain from his “patience”? Who is he trying to please, the Palestinian extremists?

As a long time supporter of the establishment of a viable Palestinian state next to the state of Israel as part of a fair and just deal, I must say that I find Mahmoud Abbas’s behaviour regarding this matter disturbing and objectionable.

Mr Abbas, think about what you are doing, and the very negative message which you are sending to Israelis who want to live in peace with you.

Iranian mothers and the ancient art of slipper throwing

11 Apr

This April fools day, in Birmingham England, a young Iranian guy with the help of his sister decided to play a prank on his mother. She was visiting from Iran.

 

?????? ??? ?????

Old Iranian slippers- AKA – Dampayee

He told her that he was seeing a Spanish girl who was 5 years older than him, and that she was pregnant. They filmed the whole thing.

 

Before he knew it, he was getting the treatment which many of us in Iran know about, and its the dampayee treatment. Dampayee means slippers in Persian, and Iranian mothers know how to use them. Forget UAVs and sniper rifles, these things are more accurate when operated by an experienced Iranian mother.

 

In his “Delirious” stand up comedy tour in the 1980, Eddie Murphy tells the tale of his mother being a female John Wayne with a shoe.

 

Forget it Eddie. African – American mothers are amateurs compared to Iranian mothers. What you went through was like a walk in a park. Your mother was good with a shoe? OK, so she was good with one shoe Eddie. One. OK, maximum two….Boo Hoo

 

Your Mum only had two shoes at her disposal. If she missed, that was it. The chamber was empty. Iranian mothers have at least five times more than that. Its like having a submachine gun magazine full of ammunition at the tip of her fingers.

 

How?

 

You try living in an Iranian house where people take their shoes off before entering and leave them by the door Eddie. There are ten more shoes by the door. Where as in your case by the time your mum looked for a new pair, you could have made it to another town. Not us. It was like a shoe Kalashnikov firing at all directions.

 

Watch out for Iranian mothers and slippers. And remember that playing dodge ball can help in more ways than one.

Now lets hear about how you had it easy Eddie…:-)
