Ed Koch Stands Up
Ex-mayor of New York Ed Koch lists his New Year’s resolutions, and earns a permanent place in the anti-idiotarian pantheon: Israel’s True Friends. (Hat tip: spooky.)
Now to my personal New Year’s resolutions. I will avoid France as a place to vacation. France leads those countries in the Security Council who are the enemies of the State of Israel. So, too, is Mexico, joining as a consistent supporter of resolutions unfairly denouncing Israel at the U.N. Security Council.
I will not support National Public Radio in any way. NPR’s reporters and management delight in unfairly attacking Israel.
I will no longer lend financial support to New York’s Channel Thirteen public television station. That station recently showed a documentary that was blatantly biased against Israel and has refused to acknowledge the bias or to try to correct it.
I will not watch ABC’s World News Tonight anchored by Peter Jennings. For many years, Jennings has specialized in vicious and unfair portrayals of Israel intended to injure the Jewish state and lionize Palestinians.
BBC News is horrifically anti-Israel and I will shun it completely.
Susan Sontag will occupy the Ninth Circle of Hell for her outrageous assaults on Israel. I will no longer read her works.
Regrettably, there are many others whom I could include on this list, but I will leave that for another day. I must confess I got enormous pleasure from the defeat of Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney and her father in the recent primary elections in Georgia. In my view, both are anti-Semitic and anti-Israel. No longer able to feed at the public trough, I doubt that either will make a comparable living in the private sector.
I must close now to get ready for my Chanukah and Christmas shopping. I enjoy celebrating those holidays with Jewish and Christian friends whose good will and affection I will always cherish.
