I like to live recklessly. Ok? I take my chances. I’m the king kong of “the no-care zone.” I don’t do ‘nice’. I’m the guy at the supermarket who rams my shopping cart into your ankles at the cashier line, why? Cuz fuck you, that’s why. In my world, population: one = me. If you have a problem, I will handle it with phosphoric acid as I do most of my nuisances back home. That’s how I deal with all the problems in life, I slaughter them. I have no time to waste. The only time I can’t kill my problems is when they are a figment of my imagination; those are the toughest, so I opt to punish everybody, just to be on the safe side. Truly, the hardest troubles in life are those that can’t be solved with massacres. Those would require some form of talent that I do not have, like… conversations. But those are for the weak and I do not care for the weak. Me, I stick to the basics: rocket-propelled grenades or nothing. And so, because of my pragmatic nature, I tend to be, what a picky person would call, a maniac. But I’m proud of it, you know? Being a maniac has brought me many, many joys in my life. At least, I am not a crazy person. No. A crazy person will shoot 26 kids at an American school and be shunned by the Americans for his “god-awful crimes”, plus they’re usually stupid and amateurish. But a maniac is different; a maniac will kill 490 children locked in an open-air prison with a purposeful no-exit lockdown, slaughter 2,139 adults 98% of whom are completely unarmed, purposefully displace 500,000 people, then block food, water, electricity and medical aid to all survivors, then have the audacity to wear a suit, actually bypass the American President by usurping his way to speak to the US Congress and have the audacity to denounce the pro-peace behavior of THAT VERY PRESIDENT IN FRONT OF HIS OWN CONGRESS AND manage to get 25 standing ovations from fellow maniacs… Trust me… I’m a pro. The secret to a successful life is smart framing: that is why Israeli murderers are called “commandos” and they get standing ovations, and Arab commandos are called “terrorists” and they get taken to Guantanamo.
I am Commando-in-chief, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and I approve this message.

    Amazing.

  • Tarek Zeidan says:

    Hahah awesome 🙂

  • Sara El-Yafi says:

    Any politician or political pundit whose speech is rooted in fear is by default a failed speech. Fear-mongers as well as all policy tactics rooted in fear are for the evil minded, selfish manipulators of the world who seek to dominate through the spread of conflict and intolerance. Any speech that seeks to spread panic and trepidation where no alternative constructive solution is even offered is by default a failed speech given by a failed politician. Benjamin Netanyahu and all of his clique are the epitome of failed politicians whose survival thrives on conflict, who, while upholding the holier-than-though terror warning speech all wired in lies, actually are the ones who every day are building the backbone of a selfish nation on the very principles of fear and terror as they spread fear and terror within the veins of their very own society. Benjamin Netanyahu is the very embodiment of terror, and all the insults that he hails on Iran are actually the very description of his own policy agenda. As for those specific Republican Americans who applauded him with no respite, they are guilty in their very own country of continuously sowing discord and resentment amongst their people with the same terror apocalyptic speeches that have driven, and will keep driving, a once unified nation to the brink of a terrible inner-conflict which supersedes politics, a nation whose essence is based on the pursuit of happiness which they dismantle everyday into a pursuit of misery for all. I despise terror speeches as well as those who give terror speeches, because the world will never ever change with fear, it will never be protected with fear, it will only change at the hands of inspired people, and inspired people don’t speak, nor bow down to the language of fear.

    • Sirine Ghandour Jawhari says:

      Sara you mentioned Republicans, but what about the Democrats? What does this say about the state of Politics in the US when both sides are beholden to influential 3rd parties with foreign vested interests for their campaign contributions.

      • Sara El-Yafi says:

        I agree Sirine, you are completely right about that. But this specific incident was orchestrated by the Republican Party to literally make of Obama the most diminutive President in their eyes, bypassing the executive so boldly means the executive and all dems are completely unimportant in their eyes. That’s driving a wedge and sowing discord in a nation to an unprecedented degree. All this to fawn and be toady towards a foreign leader whose interest is not even aligned with that of the US. Obama is at fault for letting it slide, or as Jon Stewart said ‘getting slapped by Netanyahu then giving Netanyahu a glove, to make sure that his hand doesn’t hurt in case he wants to repeat it”… Disappointing.

        • Sirine Ghandour Jawhari says:

          Yes you’re totally right Sara. I only hope this farce is enough to shake up the system and wake people up over in the US. Here in Lebanon were are used to our political class being a laughing stock, but we don’t claim to be a beacon of hope, defending freedom and democracy around the world.

  • Elham Marie-Christine Akkawi says:

    Your article will be forwarded to all our friends and I wish we were able to have it read by everyone in the Congress because watching the farce made us fume
    And wished there was one gutsy person to stop the rubbish…it was absolutely
    Disgusting. He was actually ordering the representatives of the American people as to what to do….

Yup, I am a fan. Thank you for another amazing post, one that made me both laugh and think, as per usual.

  • Alexander Keefe says:

    The illustration: GENIUS
    The humor: unbelievably witty, I laughed out loud.
    The text: clever, subtle, smart. I sat there in silence and in shame over the behavior of our Congress. I will forward this, and hope others do as well.

  • Samar Youssef Eid says:

    Yes the illustrations. Genius.
