It is not every day that a visiting foreign diplomat to Israel makes a statement like this…

President of Brazil Refuses to Lay Wreath

President of Brazil, Lula da Silva, who arrived this evening (Sunday) to visit Israel, refused to visit Mount Herzl and lay a wreath on the grave of Theodor Herzl.

In response to his announcement, Hagai Merom, whose job it is to escort the heads of state at the ceremony at the tomb of Herzl, said that the decision insults the accepted rules of politeness and friendship between countries. FROM

Just a short, sweet report from Israel’s extreme right wing news centre…. a report , which BTW, appeared nowhere else in the Israeli press…. are they ashamed? THEY SHOULD BE!

    Well, if they stop committing genocide maybe foreign dignitaries won’t mind laying a wreath at the tomb of the father of Zionism … unless they have a moment to think about the atrocities committed in the name of that despicable ideology.

    Other than that, the only thing I have to say is this: Bravo Brazil! (sorry, my Portuguese is non-existent)


    Wie viel ist Aufzuleiden!

    Well it appears Hagai Merom needs to understand that the rules have changed.

    Lula da Silva, is obviously one who feels he will not lose any sleep over an Israeli escort feeling insulted.

    I’m just guessing here; but I somehow think this worries Mr Da Silva a great deal less than the inhumane acts by Zionists in Israel toward innocent Palestinian men, women and children does.

    Why would some one pay tribute to racist ideology that threatens world peace and who’s goal is to subvert and subdue the rest of the planet?

    Didn’t the Israelis stick it to V.P. Biden just last week? Israelis should try to wake up to the fact that people are clearly seeing them as the instigators and troublemakers they always were. No amount of whining or PR is going to change this awakening, so get used to it. Better yet, see a doctor, because you Israelis are a very sick people. I mean that with sincere compassion.
