Wow! Totally!

Not only does she have rubbers, but also a ...... I don't know what to call it. But it's shocking pink and has batteries! She's an amazon!

I did not think people of our age could be so experienced! That isn't normal? Is it? Maybe she has a glandular problem? Too many hormones in the blood? Too much beef?

I really don't know what to make of this. She's the most exciting classmate ever, and has secrets coming out of her wazoo. But I'm also scared of her cause she knows so much, more than anybody else. And there are some things I don't want or need to know for several more years. She's just too fast!!!

But yes, black lace edging is very nice.

I am NOT baked!

How the hell did Warren get my number? He called to call me Angel Food Cake!!!!!!!! Did he REALLY just do that???!?!?!
Well that conversation went nowhere fast. I hung up on him! His obsession with fine baked goods is ab. SURD! And too freaking much!

I think he wanted to ask me out. He sounded ... hopefull?
He had once mentioned a place on Stockton Street with dee-vine strawberry shortcake, with just oodles of whipped cream. And I think he said REAL whipped cream, but this was months ago at school, so it might have changed by now.
Unless it was in the Italian part on the other side of Broadway. Italians probably don't get gas from dairy.

Well, if he WANTS to go have a pastry, fine. As long as he remembers that there is a difference between me (flesh and blood, NOT PASTRY), and the thing that came out of the oven (flour, sugar, yeast, butter, salt - NOT A CHINESE GIRL). And he should talk like he understands the difference. For a change.
I shall not be a pie in public.

Booboo has a honey?

So uncle Booboo came in late last night. And we could all hear him. He was singing. He's a lousy singer, by the way, and moaning Yuet-kuk lyrics sound lugubrious anyhow. Even when it's supposed to be happy and carefree. At least they do to me - I really don't like those old-timey Cantonese tearjerker movies.

Does he FINALLY have a girlfriend? After all these years!!! That, of course, is the big question. Middle-aged men SHOULD have girlfriends, it keeps them moored to reality, but uncle Booboo was just a bit .......
Well never mind that. We were wondering. That's all.

He's not saying anything, but he's much cleaner than he used to be. I think he shaves nearly every day now. Combs his hair too. And he's smoking less. He's obviously up to something!
I just hope his little huggybun is blond.
That would definitely freak out Grannie and Mom. And we need some excitement around here.

In wich I tell mister Patel to shove it!

Yes, Grantipuke, you ARE THE MOST DISGUSTING HAHMSAPLO in San Francisco!!!!!!
I really cannot think of a more odious and degenerate person as yourself. No wonder you are not married. Do not, I repaet - DO NOT - suggest to me that a portion of my anatomy which you have never seen!!!!! would look delicious in black frillies!

I will admit that the concept of sex has a certain limited intellectual interest. Untill I was thirteen, I did not even wonder about gender differences or whatever it is that married people get up to when they think the neighbors can't hear. But if I wonder in anyway about it at all, you odious Parsee creep, it is rarely, and always purely speculative, and in the abstract. You, on the other hand, are depraved and desperate, and seem to have nothing else on your mind. Ever!!!!!
And you are at least forty years older than me! Sick pig man!

Maybe not a motorbike?

Nie says that motorbikes are hard to park in the city, because drunken marketing dudes keep pushing them over (?), and uncle Booboo thinks that the insurance would be too high. Which is way more practical minded than I normally give him credit for. I haven't mentioned it to auntie Wah yet, because she would just scream approvingly and let the cat out of the bag.
I sure don't want mom to even think of it yet. Plus she'd say I need to gain at least six more inches (and a hundred pounds, for leverage), and that a daughter covered in scars and bruises is impossible to marry off.

She wants me to keep my even-hued pasty blah complexion. And smile more!!!!!!!!!

Now, a brand-new motorbike WOULD make me smile, but I know what she would think about that at this point in time.

I will not settle for a Vespa, though. Those things are silly. Not even my stuffed frog would look good on one.

Buy Israeli food

Last week I wrote about the South Bay Mobilization's call to pressure Trader Joe's to get rid of Israeli goods. I wasn't too pleased - here in Chinatown we've had all kinds of crap from the no-fur and PETA crowd and other big-nosed busybodies all frazzled at something, and usually the people who end up suffering from politically motivated anti-merchant actions are not the self-satisfied middle-class white people. Judgemental prigs.

By the way - would you dumb tourists and rednecks mind awfully NOT photographing the fish stores and food markets? We aren't here for your amusement, we actually live here.
Thank you SO much, and have a NICE trip back to Podunck. Bye now.

In any case, it turns out that the nineteenth and twentieth of June have become "buy Israeli Products Day".

June 19 & 20, 2009.

Here are links to some posts about the know-it-alls behind the Trader Joe's divestment campaign.
[That being the South Bay Mobilization, Kate Bender Rafael, and Yasmeen Qureishi, among others - Kate Bender Raphael was supposedly involved in that little incident last year in which Israeli food products were sabotaged - which would be a crime if substantiated - and is known for her insistence that breaking glass and trashing offices counts as "non-violent protest". She's an uber-creep.]


QUOTE: Bold and courageous activists in Pittsburg then turned ugly on the company they had previously tried to cajole (sound familiar?) and walked into a Trader Joe's shop where they proceeded to pull Israeli goods and/or shove their usual misinformation into the hands of customers before being tossed out of the store for trespassing. Undeterred, the BDS community throughout the land called for a national day of de-shelving Israeli products on June 20 (this coming Saturday). One hopes that before they get started they realize the two ways of performing such de-shelving (other than buying all the couscous for themselves) would involve (1) shoplifting, a locally prosecutable criminal offense or (2) defacing said Israeli products to make them unsellable, which turns out to be a prosecutable federal offense under the US Product Packaging Protection Act of 2002.
[End quote]

Take note of that, you trolls - defacing products in the stores is a FEDERAL OFFENSE! And please remember that the next time you go into Chinatown. Being emasculated by an angry shopkeeper (even, perhaps especially, you, ms. Kate Bender Raphael) might be the very least of your problems.


The obvious thing to do is to make sure you buy Israeli products from Trader Joe's on the 19th and 20th and let the store managers know that you appreciate the fact that they make such products available.
[End quote]

The proper way to "de-shelve" is to buy as much as possible. That more than anything else says appreciation. Smack a pro-Palestinian noodnik on the way out.


Divestment debates are ongoing matters at many "Mainline" Protestant churches. I’ve talked before about how anti-Israel divestment resolutions, begun by local churches, find their way to national forums (notably the Presbyterians and Methodists who meet every few years within quasi-democratic frameworks to vote on resolutions submitted from "the field"). While these resolutions get routinely voted down at a national level by whopping majorities, that seems to just give local activists the go-ahead to try to re-craft their rejected calls for resubmission two or four years hence.
[End quote]

Wanna bet that the "local activists" belong simultaneously to several different denominations? It's probably just the same five bigots in each region, who have nothing better to do, and believe themselves divinely chosen to judge each and every one of their neighbors. Which, in its own way, is very Protestant, very Christian - missionaryism uncleverly disguised.


The BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) movement is an tactic from the anti-apartheid effort now adopted by the anti-Israel groups in the US and Europe. Of course, it completely ignores the actual fact, which is that Arabs in the State of Israel have citizenship and full and equal political and civil rights.
[End quote]

See, Israel is more diverse, by a VERY WIDE MARGIN, than any of the Arab countries. And the Arabs don't appear to like anybody but themselves - except, of course, for the Philippinas and other female guest-workers whom they rape at the drop of a hat in the Gulf States, Lebanon, and Saudi Arabia - and would you care to guess about the perpetrators of a very large number of violent sex crimes in Europe?
Here in San Francisco, the Arabs count as the worst racists and bigots, especially as far as the Chinese are concerned. You will NEVER hear an Arab say anything good about Chinese-Americans. They discriminate, they sneer at our accents, and they cheat. And many of them are the worst tenants in the world - they make twenty-something dummies from the Midwest look good; that .... takes some doing.
They are rude, crude, and venal.
Plus Arab-American teenagers are sexist pigs. Absolute unmitigated swine.

Yes, I know that I am generalizing - bite me!


Trader Joe’s, a well-known market for imported foods and wines, is now under pressure to stop selling products made in Israel (like Israeli couscous, for example). This effort is being launched by South Bay Mobilization, a leftist, activist anti-Israel bunch in San Jose, California. In addition to its letter to Trader Joe’s asking them not to sell Israeli products, this bunch is asking its members to actually go into local Trader Joe’s stores on June 20, which if you did not know, is "World Refugee Day" and "Day to de-shelve Israeli products". It appears they will do what French activists have been doing, filling their shopping carts with Israeli products (with great fanfare) then leaving them in the aisle. Neat, huh? Basically, they conduct themselves like vandals.
[End quote]

Conducting themselves like vandals? How VERY white of them. Proof positive that white folk can go "native" (how delicious!!!!), that Arabs can blend-in (hah!), and that Arab culture is warm and open to all (please reread previous comments about raping Philippinas and being sexist pigs).
Between hypocrite middle-class dunces and nasty Arab liquor-store owners and taxi drivers, San Francisco is going to hell in a handbasket.
Berkeley, of course, is already part of the BORG.
And some of those sanctimonious twats in the South Bay really need to be smacked with a rubber hose.



Over at
DIVEST THIS! there are two recipes for Israeli Couscous.

Israeli Couscous with Seasonal Vegetables (From The Foods of Israel Today, by Joan Nathan)

Couscous with Dried Fruits and Nuts (A traditional Moroccan Hanukkah dessert, from The World of Jewish Cooking, by Gil Marks)


The siteowner there has promised to post more recipes as they come in. So please go over there often for updates and further information on Israeli Couscous, and also contribute your own recipes!

Seeing as Israeli Couscous is not a traditional Cantonese ingredient (yes, we do eat EVERYTHING - we just haven't gotten to Israeli Couscous yet), nor even at all common in TaiFao (SF Chinatown), I am anxious to see what you all come up with.

I'm thinking Eight Treasures Rice Pudding...... I'm going to experiment.

Smarmy Parsi sex-gargoyle

Grant Patel is probably the worst pervert in Northern california. And I do not write this lightly. I suspect he makes even the Hamas supporter outside the BFUU look like an amateur. And lord knows, that creep tied his victim to himself pretty darn good, from all accounts (and on his own blog he even lists his occupation as 'pedophile' - that takes chutzpah).

Well, Atboth did call him an all-round fetishist. Which is VERY accurate. But doesn't nearly say it all.

Grant Patel, in his latest posting, goes over the top, off the deep end, around the bend, and into a dark little dungeon of degenerate fantasy.

He writes:
"A delicate Cantonese maiden vrooming around San Francisco on a big macho muscle-bike is topnotch. Oh yes. Entertainments! The sun on her golden skin, the wind in her long raven hair, the delicate dark lace garters or tight constrictive frilly undergarments of enticement only".


The "delicate Cantonese maiden" in the passage above would, in his twisted mind, be me. With the addition of his garters or tight frillies. He also recommends black or crimson 'chase-me-do-me' high-heels.
Probably because he thinks me too short, or something.

I am tall enough, mister Patel, to kick you where it hurts. Except that I would have to meet you to do that, and given your disgusting sex-gargoyle tendencies, that is so not likely to happen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Am I the only object of your unclean pursuits mister Patel? Are there no Indian or Pakistani girls you could harass? Is your life really that empty and sad that I represent your likeliest prospect?
Have you no aunties who could find you a victim? Are you so devoid of charm that not even your relatives will find you a mate? Do none of your nearest and dearest trust you around the elderly spinster relatives of their friends? Surely a comely Indian widow, large and fully breasted, is more suited to tackling so mean and frantic a weasel as yourself?

Why don't you place an ad in the papers if you are so desperate?

"Smarmy Parsi lawyer seeks weak-minded Indian female. Age no object. Must like long walks on the beach, dogs who hump legs, and applying choke-holds".

Or something like that. I'm sure someone would eventually bite.

Racist whiteys at the BFUU, plus Gilad Atzmon

So DrMike over at Bluetruth has posted an evenkeeled account of what went on outside the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists last Monday.


The BFUU is trying to claim that the decision to let Gilad Atzmon spout his own unique brand of Jew-hatred was not entirely well-thought-out.

From their own flyer of the time:
"The BFUU-SJC [note: Social Justice Committee of the BFUU] agreed to be a cosponsor but was unaware at the time of Mr Atzmon's controversial reputation in some quarters."

Oh really?!??!? Unaware??!?!?!

Pull the other one!

Guys, are you REALLY that stupid? Have you EVER heard of the internet???? I mean, gosh golly gee, evidence that Gilad Atzmon is Darth Vader is just all over the place! You can't have been unaware of it, it just isn't credible .. .. that .. .. you .. .. didn't .. .. know!!!!!!!
Typing in 'Gilad Atzmon' in the search field (top right of your screen, in the grey part) brings up TONS of stuff.

First thing that comes up is a Wikipedia entry.
Quote: "He also has called himself "a Hebrew-speaking Palestinian" who plays music for the Palestinian cause. --- CUT --- music critic John Lewis wrote in The Guardian: "It is Atzmon's blunt anti-Zionism rather than his music that has given him an international profile".

Got that? His music sucks, but what makes him famous is his viciousness.

The next two things that come up are links to Gilad Atzmon's own writing. Which is where the hateful quotes about Jews and Israel can be found. Lordy, that puke is just all over his own site - no wonder the Jew-haters love him!

The next several links jump around to the Palestine Thinktank and several other suspect places, many featuring anti-Semitic content and various hatefilled extrusions of Gilad Atzmon's own writing.

Perhaps the Berkeley Unitarian Universalists cannot read, however. They didn't clue on to the venomous and depraved nature of Gilad Atzmon's texts.

Very well.


Gilad Atzmon: "There is no such thing as anti-Semitism."

Gilad Atzmon suggests by this that anti-Semitism is in fact justified, and therefore not bigotry. This is similar to "we don't hate Chinese, it's just a FACT that they aren't really human, and in any case they're not as sensitive and refined as white people, and how can you say that blacks are even the same race - therefore, it isn't bigotry but sheer honest realism to say so".
Right, mister Atzmon? There's no such thing as racism, it's all just an acknowledgement of basic facts?

Gilad Atzmon: "Why is it that the Jews who repeatedly demand that the Christian world should apologize for its involvement in previous persecutions, have never thought that it is about time that they apologized for killing Jesus?"

Like most of Christian mythology, the existence of Jesus is highly doubtful. The Christians at the time of their victory over paganism would have had to invent the character of a sagely god-king of divine origin, and in any case would be ill-advised to make the Romans their enemies, as it would've got in the way of subverting Roman institutions. Godly parentage was an accepted part of the Greek and Roman view of the world too.
But it's a matter of whatever record there is that the Romans killed Jesus.
Who nailed him up? The Romans.
Who used crucifixion as a method of execution? The Romans.
Who pulled all the strings in Israel at that time? The Romans.
Who killed more people by torture and crucifixion in the classic world than all other people combined? The Romans.
Haven't ANY of you idiots seen Life of Brian?

Gilad Atzmon: "The Jews who had now managed to kill their God learned to believe in themselves."

Look, Jesus ain't a god. Second Brother Kwan is a god, the Duke of Hsiong is a god, Chong Kwei is a god, Yanlowong is a god, and the Three Immortals are gods. Please rethink the meaning of the word 'god'. If Jesus is a god, then the word cannot mean what you want it to mean. That's like saying that Marx, Lenin, and Mao are gods.
Lordy you white people are nuts. Have you all considered therapy?

Gilad Atzmon: "We need the voices of David Duke and Pat Buchanan."

Two sour hatefilled white racists? If Gilad Atzmon really believes that we need to give those two dyed in the wool slopebrowed bigots any more airtime, he should probably be shot. And he proves himself a wanna-be whitey to boot. Self-hatred squared is what.

Gilad Atzmon: "Throughout the centuries, Jewish bankers bought for themselves some real reputations of backers and financers of wars and even one communist revolution."

The Vikings weren't banked by Jews. The Crusades weren't banked by Jews. The Huns, Tatars, Mongols, and Turks were not banked by Jews. Two centuries of horrifying religious war between Catholics and Protestants weren't banked by Jews. The rape of the Americas didn't have a Jewish element. Slavery had Christian backing and Christian bankers, The opium wars were paid for by the British Crown and the East-India company, and the theft of Hong Kong was one hundred percent a wasp business proposition. The Russian take-over of Central Asia had no Jewish input, and the American takeover of the Philippines was East-Coast Protestants finding a new territory to suck dry - it killed over twenty percent of the population of the islands, but it involved NO Jews at any point at all - purely a WASP thing.
Napoleon wasn't a Jew, Clausewitz wasn't a Jew, the Duke of Wellington wasn't a Jew, Nelson wasn't a Jew.
And so forth.
Mister Atzmon, you are an spitefull moron spouting clichés.
There's nothing worse than a banana or an oreo.
Stop trying to absolve whitey.

Gilad Atzmon: "I’m not going to say whether it is right or not to burn down a synagogue, I can see that it is a rational act."

Given that I can't stand Jazz, and after reading Gilad Atzmon's insane ranting now despise anybody who would listen to him, should I burn down the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists at 1924 Cedar Street at Bonita in Berkeley???????????????
It would be VERY rational to do so, I feel - everything they stand for is corrupted and polluted by their hosting Gilad Atzmon, they are a blot on the psyche of Bay Area, and their principles, as shown by their having hosted this event, are weak and repulsive. It might benefit everyone if their horrid "church" were burned to the ground and turned into a compost heap, don't you think?
It's worth considering - I'm not going to state whether it is right or wrong to burn down the BFUU meeting hall, but I can see where it might be a rational act.
And of course you agree, don't you? Yes?

Look, hosting a loud mouthed kiss-up-to-whitey, who is also a selfhater and bigot, like Gilad Atzmon, is not a peace-loving tolerant liberal thing to do. It's not even broadminded.

You self-satisfied white pricks in Berkeley have shown your true colors. You have proven yourself secret bigots who will jump at the opportunity to listen to anyone who makes you feel warm and wet about your hatreds and preconceptions.
You are no better than the old fashioned southern racist, the South African boer, the Russian peasant, or the Malay and Indonesian bureaucrat. You may be more educated - you can probably spell your own names - but you are NO LESS narrowminded and bigoted.
You are Berkeley.

I finally realized what I want for graduation! A motorbike. I think a Harley, those are very nice, but some of the Japanese jobbies are sweet too.

Harleys have nice round parts, and are solidly built. But the Japanese ones have a sleekness that doesn't lie.

Especially the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-12R. It has a huge 1,199cc digitally fuel-injected engine for "unparalleled handling and cornering agility" - doesn't that sound exciting? And it looks unapologetically feminine, too.

At this point in time, I don't think my folks would even think of allowing me to ride one. So I'm going to have to broach the subject carefully, and gradually work on them. It'll take at least a year. And perhaps I can find one with a finish that matches Richard the frog. That would be cool.

But was it ethical?

Recently friend and fellow-blogger Atboth posted about the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists and their sponsorship of a performance by an anti-Semite of monstrous proportion (Gilad Atzmon), and their refusing to reconsider once it had been made clear to them what a scumbag he was.

This post:

And this:

And this:

The problem is that he also described two of the pro-Gilad Atzmon protestors in very unflattering terms. And named them.

I'm not so sure that that, as Grant Patel might put it, is entirely 'cricket'. Can one actually name the members of the other side? Are they that public that doing so is okay?

There are several news articles about the first one mentioned - he has a history of provocative acts and threatening behavior - and the second one has written several pieces on Indybay.
Both of them come off as extremely unpleasant people, associated with the viler elements,and involved in several unsavory groups.
But is it really ethical to make their names public?

Whether it is legal to do so is another matter.
I think that if you're seen in public participating in political actions, you lose the presumption of anonymity. And if either of the two men do have the stinking big egos that they do seem to have, judging from all news articles that are associated with their names, then they are already known to the public, and they have made themselves known for their opinions and acts.

Speaking of ethics, I'm still horrified that a church would engage in anti-Semitic incitement, though. That is really an appalling thing to do!!!! How can they face their neighbors?!? How on earth can the BFUU justify having Gilad Atzmon as a guest performer?!!!!??? Why are they engaging in such blatantly despicable acts?
Why does sh*& like this ALWAYS happen in Berkeley? Are people crippled there?

Couscous and Feta

Wow!!!!! I'm really going to have to try Israeli Couscous and Pastures of Eden Feta Cheese!
I have this incredibly urge to spend money on Israeli Couscous and Pastures of Eden Feta Cheese, and it's all thanks to Yasmeen Qureishi. Thank you Yasmeen, for showing me the light!
And I'm gonna spend LOTS and LOTS of money at Trader Joe's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

See, I got this letter:


Hi All,

Please read the letter to Trader Joe's requesting them to de-shelve Israeli products. Email me at yfatimah@yahoo.com if you would like to sign and/or have your organization endorse it latest by June 5, 10 pm PST. We will be mailing the letter on June 6. Please forward to others who might be interested in signing too.
Everyone is encouraged to do a follow up action at a store in their area on June 20, World Refugee Day which is also being observed as National Day to De-Shelve Israeli products. Check out the event page on Facebook .


Don Bane, Chairman and CEO
Doug Rauch, President
Charles J. Pilliter, SVP Operations
Trader Joe’s Main Headquarters
800 S. Shamrock Ave.
Monrovia , CA 91016

Dear Mr. Bane, Mr. Rauch and Mr. Pilliter,
As people of conscience, we believe that business corporations need to uphold ethical standards that are consistent with the principles of human rights and support of justice and equality, locally and globally. Trader Joe’s is a company with a reputation for bringing foods from around the world to offer U.S. customers the chance to enjoy a diversity of products. In doing so, however, we think that Trader Joe’s should not be complicit in promoting occupation, ethnic cleansing, massacres, and apartheid.

We ask that you stop carrying Israeli products or products manufactured in Israel that are distributed in the U.S. (for example, "Israeli Couscous"). We are part of a growing international movement of ordinary people from around the world, from Ireland and France to Norway and Canada , that does not want to buy consumer products that help fund an economy based on illegal occupation and apartheid. We have been dismayed to see that Trader Joe’s is still selling Israeli products, despite the international outcry against the Israeli massacre in Gaza this winter. In addition, the names of products such as "Israeli Couscous" are offensive as they allow a state that was created sixty years ago, through dispossession and illegal occupation, to claim a type of couscous that was traditionally produced by Palestinians and other Arabs for generations. This is racist advertising for cultural theft
and does not befit a store that wishes to promote diversity, equality, or sustainability.

We are writing to ask you to not carry Israeli products for the following key reasons, among others:
1. Israel engages in the oppression of Palestinians and ethnic cleansing of Palestinian people, including the continued theft of Palestinian land for the expansion of illegal Israeli settlements and construction of the Segregation Wall (see -- link removed -- ,
-- link removed -- , -- link removed -- for information about these violations of international law).
2. Israel has violated over 80 resolutions of the United Nations, including Resolution 194, which affirms the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes, and Resolution 242, which called for an immediate end to the occupation of the West Bank, Gaza and East
Jerusalem in 1967.
3. Israel has .......

-------------------lots of pretentious blathering removed in the interests of brevity and readability - it's pretty stupid and offensive, trust me here-------------------------------------

We know that Trader Joe’s carries Israeli Couscous and Pastures of Eden Feta cheese, both produced in Israel . However, we also believe that other products carried under Trader Joe’s private label may be repackaged Israeli products.
As conscientious people and customers of Trader Joe’s, we urge you to de-shelve Israeli products, at least until Israel meets its obligations under international law.

Yummy! Feta and couscous! Yeah!

You know, boycotts are a crock of doodoo and trying to pressure stores to stop selling stuff is moronic. You don't want them to sell it? THEN DON'T FRIKKIN' BUY IT!!!!!
Suppose that you decided to boycott Chinese stuff (yeah, I know you can't live without cheap Chinese products, the world economy would go down the drain without them, but just suppose......!!), you know what that would do? You would end up with millions of Chinese so pissed at YOU that we would have no problem ripping your guts out. And we would STILL find a way of making a living. Without YOU having any say in it.
You would have even less influence than you already do.

You want the world to stop buying Israeli products?
What do you guys make that anyone wants anyway? If we aren't buying your couscous, it's because of price and quality. Have you thought of making something decent? Same consistent quality, batch after batch? At a reasonable price?
Do you even make couscous?

I mean, I would maybe buy Arab food products, if they were of decent quality, and not likely to poison me. But what are your industrial food production standards like? Mediocre? Miserable? Too horrible to contemplate? Almighty frikkin bad? Twixt Toxic and Nuclear waste????

Okay, do you people make anything that I DON'T have to eat, that anybody really wants?


That's dead dinosaurs, Yasmeen, you guys DIDN'T make it, it isn't your technology that refines it, or your tankers, and I don't see you dillwads NOT selling it to anyone. Heck, you guys sell your dead dinosaurs to the highest bidder, no matter what their politics, religion, skin color, and personal fetishes.

Of course, I don't buy oil. Or gasoline. Or anything Arabic.
I don't have a car, and I don't shop at ghetto liquor stores.

Oh and by the way, bitch, Obama got it wrong. You folks DIDN'T give the world the compass, we did! The Chinese! We invented it. Along with paper, printing, silk, tea, porcelain, distilling, Persian rugs, and Damascus steel. And tons of other stuff.
You really want to talk about "cultural theft" now, bitch?

And if you want to talk about ethnic cleansing, why are there so many of you?!?!?!?!
The Israelis did a piss-poor job decontaminating the land.
They should've followed YOUR example when you took over the middle-east thirteen centuries ago. And that is the ONLY skill you have refined since then. That, plus rape and honor-killings. Do you want to talk now about the slaughter of your own sisters and daughters?
Wanna talk about the endemic rape of foreign women working in the Arab world? Phillipinas, Indonesians, Bangladeshis and others who are brutalized by their Arab employers??????

Yeah, let's talk, bitch.
Dear Yasmeen Qureishi, I hope your dad's liquor store goes bankrupt.

International Answer and the Jews

On Saturday I went down to United Nations Plaza at Market Street to see the big hate festival organized by International Answer and Richard Becker, and to see if Atboth and his friends were there.

So boring!!!!!!!! Boring!!!!! Very, very, very, very, very borrriiiiinnggnngng!

The haters only had about a hundred people! I think there were more pro-Israel people there than fans Richard Becker. There was one guy on the hate side with a 'Queers for Gaza' teeshirt - he looked dim and out of it. And talk about goofy message!!!!
"Queers for Gaza"
That's like Elephants for Ivory. Or Trees United for the paper industry.
Pro-soup chickens, oranges loving juicers, and Jews for Jezus.
Too crazy to live, that one. What part of the Hamas' hatred of gays doesn't that man get??!?!?!?!

After listening to the International Answer speakers for only fifteen minutes the pro-Israeli side got bored and marched down Market street.
Richard Becker also spoke. At least I think he did. Some boring geeky guy with glasses and a whiny voice. Too old to be up there acting so terminal.
It was all extremely boring, and I really hope the pro-Israel side all had lots of coffee afterwards.

I tried to spot Atboth, 'cause I thought it would be fun to finally meet him, but I couldn't tell who he was. There was nobody there smoking a pipe. And I don't know what he looks like. And there were several intelligent looking men on the Jewish side, so it would've been as pointless as looking for a needle in a haystack. They were all talking all at once with each other, and I didn't think I'd get a chance to ask any of them.
They were all too busy ignoring Richard Becker, I guess.

The frizzy-haired troll from San Francisco Women in Black who eyed me hungrily at Montgomerey street a while ago wasn't there. If she had been, I probably would've kicked her.
And I'm guessing that Grant Patel wasn't there. He would've forced me to kick him.
Except he probably would've liked that.

Jew in the hood

One of the places on Pacific that was empty for the longest time got rented out recently. Close to Chinatown, with mostly Chinese neighbors.

It's now a Chabad house. Sweet Buddha, we have become an annex of Brooklyn.

Wikipedia says this about Chabad:
Chabad-Lubavitch is a Hasidic movement in Orthodox Judaism. One of the world's largest Hasidic movements, it is based in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. The name "Chabad" (Hebrew: חב"ד) is an acronym for Chochmah, Binah, Da'at (חכמה, בינה, דעת): "Wisdom, Understanding, and Knowledge," and "Lubavitch" is the only extant branch of a family of Hasidic groups once known collectively as the Chabad movement; the names are now used interchangeably.

Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. Longwinded article here:

About Hasids, Wikipedia also goes on at length:
The movement originated in Eastern Europe (what is now Ukraine) in the 18th century, and soon spread from Poland and Russia, to Hungary and Romania. As compared with other Jewish movements, Hasidic Judaism tends to focus on the role of the Rebbe (or Rabbi) as a spiritual conduit of God. Hasidic followers join worship groups associated with dynasties of Hasidic spiritual leaders.

Kinda like kungfu schools, in other words. There's a lovely picture of some severely old gentlemen with beards and big Mandarin hats in Jerusalem in that Wikipedia entry.
Yes, I know those aren't REALLY mandarin hats - what else am I going to call them - black pillboxes?

The person at the Chabad house does not wear such a hat. Instead he wears something that looks like cowboy hat, but more dashing, and neater.
Except for the beard, he could be a wild west bank director or country doctor.

Jews aren't missionaries - what is he doing in Chinatown?

The first article says that Chabad houses are informal, the living quarter also serving as synagogue. Quote: "an atmosphere in which the nonobservant will not feel intimidated by any perceived contrast between their lack of knowledge of Jewish practice and the advanced knowledge of some of the people they meet there".

There's more of them here?

That's funny, I don't remember a whole bunch of Jewish people running around Chinatown. White faces, beards, cowboy hats - I really would've noticed!

What on earth are the BFUU thinking!?!?

There are times when the politics of the folks in Berkeley confuse me. Berkeley often seems off base, and sometimes out of it entirely.
Then there are times when Berkeley just boggles the mind.

Such as when a church in Berkeley sponsors a performance by an Israel-bashing Jew-baiting bigot to benefit those giving material assistance to terrorists.

Gilad Atzmon: Themes from Palestine Monday June 8, 2009 at 7:00pm
Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists
1924 Cedar (at Bonita),Berkeley, California


What the heck could the BFUU have been thinking!!!!!!!!!!!
Gilad Atzmon is a hate filled apologist for brigands and tyrants, and a classic example of the stereotype of ersatz "revolutionary" thinker with a lubricious fondness for third-world thugs.

Gilad Atzmon's type, during the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, praised the excesses of the red guards and the killing of 'counter revolutionaries'. Such people supported the genocide in Cambodia, the never ending sadism of the FARC in Columbia, the execution of women in Afghanistan, the brutality of Chavez and Castro.
Gilad Atzmon, today, as an example of that ilk, trumpets the praises of the worst gangster regimes and barbaric dictators in the Muslim world. He supports the terrorists of Hamas, the thugs in Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan, the madman of Iran, the cowardly racists of the anti-Semitic ultra-left, and the unreconstructed bigots of the old-style racialist right. And he is both proud and open about it.

A more despicable and ethically crippled person would be hard to imagine.

Is that who the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists want to be know by?
Is Gilad Atzmon really a man whom they are glad to host?
Does his worldview truly represent their allegedly lofty ideals?
How on earth can they face the world, EVEN their fellow Berkeleyites, if they bid Gilad Atzmon welcome?


Gilad Atzmon, like many know-it-all foreigners, presumes to blame Zionists for everything. Such as in this article (http://palestinethinktank.com/2008/09/30/gilad-atzmon-credit-crunch-or-rather-zio-punch/), where he tries to connect Bush's advisors to a Zionist plot. Quote: "how did America, once a symbol of freedom, let itself be enslaved by such repulsive ideologies that are associated inherently with some clear foreign tribal interests? [cut] In 2003, by the time youngster of Zion Wolfowitz was on the verge of becoming a proper elder"

The anti-Semitic tropes fairly drip from this crude text: repulsive ideologies, foreign tribal interests, youngster of Zion, elder.

Then he says: "America is now inherently associated with Israel as the biggest threat to world peace", and asks "How is it that America failed to restrain its Wolfowitzes? How is that America let its foreign policy be shaped by some ruthless Zionists?"

A spurious accusation that would have done Goebbels or Stalin proud. How well Gilad Atzmon has studied his predecessors!

This is followed by a bald-faced suggestion that money and Jews facilitated a take over. Quote: "Throughout the centuries, Jewish bankers bought for themselves some real reputations of backers and financers of wars and even one communist revolution. Though rich Jews had been happily financing wars using their assets, Alan Greenspan, the Chairman of the Federal Reserve of the United States, found a far more sophisticated way to finance the wars perpetrated by his ideological brothers Libby and Wolfowitz. Unlike old fashioned Britain, where Tony Blair recruited Lord ‘cash-machine’ Levy to encourage his Zionist friends to donate their money by proxy to a party that was just about to a launch a criminal war ..."

Again, a passage drenched with propagandistic turns and twists familiar from anti-Semitic tracts: Jewish bankers, financers of war, responsible for communism, rich Jews, using their assets.
Please also note the deft use of Jewish surnames, serving to clearly point out the 'International Jew'. Ford would have been proud, and no doubt Atzmon's friends among the supporters of Hezbollah and Hamas are still gleeful over the eloquence of their pet.
It is a masterpiece of anti-Semitic venom.

Then, in the classic fashion of bigots and anti-Semites, he blames financial disaster on the Jews, though claiming that it was not deliberate - the Zionists, according to Gilad Atzmon, through their clumsiness accidentally caused the meltdown - and he concludes with a sentence which undoubtedly resonated in Europe and the Arab world: "This Zionist accident is a glimpse into Political Zionism’s sinister agenda."

This precisely is the classic accusation made by hate-mongers throughout the ages: 'it is only because our enemies showed their true colors that we finally realized it was they, and none other, that caused all our ills - now see how evil they are, and hang 'em!'
Mississippi rednecks said it about blacks, Irish layabouts in California said it about the Chinese, the Europeans say it about Americans, WASP xenophobes say it about dem Meskins, and the paranoid say it about the Masons and the Jews.

Still, one of the most telling statements by this paragon of alternative-interpretations, is the one where he calls Mahmud Ahmedinejad the representative of civilized values. Quote: "it is Ahmadinejad rather than Blair who reminds us where goodness rests. Seemingly, a man who has been repeatedly presented by our deluded Western media as a 'radical’, ‘fundamentalist’ and ‘Islamofascist’ has proved beyond doubt that it is actually him who knows what forgiveness and grace are all about".

Obviously Atzmon overlooks the execution of gays and rape-victims which is standard in Iran - where, according to Atzmon's idol Ahmedinejad, there are no gays. It is an assertion almost classicly nineteen-fifties communist front in effect - surreal and grotesque.

" -- Let love be the spirit of this congregation And service its goal. This is our living covenant: To dwell together in peace, to seek the truths in life, and to help one another. -- "
[BFUU creed]

Does Gilad Atzmon represent YOUR values, oh Berkeley Unitarians? Are this man's statements indicative of the things that you believe? What part of 'love', 'service', 'peace', and 'truth' does Gilad Atzmon represent?

How on earth you blinkered hypocrites can hold your heads high and face the rest of the citizens of the Bay Area is utterly beyond me. You make me sick, and I am surprised that no one has yet driven you perverts out of town. That you are STILL here should serve as a lesson in tolerance. Misapplied tolerance, yet tolerance nonetheless.
