Andrea Mitchell explains why Romney’s comments were so “deeply offensive” to the Palestinian people – it’s like she was feeling their pain even as she spoke – and then gets her backside handed to her on a platter by Dan Senor, foreign policy advisor to Romney (h/t: Weekly Standard and Free Beacon):

Also, word to Andrea Mitchell: It’s not called the West Bank, it’s called Judea and Samaria.

    Well stated, it is not the fault of the Israelis it is the fault of the Palestinians.

  • Sandra123456

    I though Andrea is a Jew and would understand these things.

    I guess she is a Jew for Obama, and the Palestinians.

    • sDee

      Obama is still polling over 60% with American Jews.

        Why is such a smart people so dumb when it comes to politics?

        • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

          Too many of them bought off on the idea that a big, powerful government will protect them from another Shoah. They are so busy keeping their heads down and focusing on liberal arts type college communities and local news of Jewish import, that they fail to realize that too much power in the government is exactly what causes these mass murders to happen. They didn’t learn from history, they only learned from their own experience.

          All through Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and Europe we’ve seen this scenario play out over and over again, and it’s responsible for more deaths in human history than all the wars combined:

          1) Make the Government powerful enough to control people’s daily lives.
          2) Take away the people’s guns.
          3) Take control of all means of production and markets.
          4) Blame the resulting misery on a particular group, tribe, or religion.
          5) Exterminate millions of innocent people, to prove you are “doing something about the problem.”

          It happens this way every time. Even in supposedly stable China. They’ve simply managed to slow the process down enough that the world sees only what China wants them to see. Not the millions of people’s lives destroyed. The billions of aborted and murdered baby girls.

          And Western liberal Jews ignore all of this because they think they are a protected group. Worse, they think it’s the Dems who protect them. In reality, it’s the Constitution of the United States that protects them, and the many Americans who believe that the second amendment is not only a right, but a duty.

          That’s what keeps them safe.

            History 101 thanks for the well-articulated fact based summary of our problem. I think many Jews are just useful idiots (drones) for Obama and Socialism. Many elites of all back rounds think they know more than us common sense conservative types.

            Being book smart doesn’t mean you know more than everyone, in fact I believe once you cross over into thinking you are superior (an elitist) to everyone you are telling people how stupid you really are. No one ever knows everything and once you stop being humble you are a lost cause. This is the case with Liberal’s, Democrat’s, and Big Government Ideology.

              Yeah, you really hit it on the head about book-smart people. What’s really ridiculous is how an awful lot of those sorts believe that their degree in English Lit. somehow translates into the ability to validate claims of “science” by certain fraudulent climate groups. You just know they never looked into the actual data and analyses, because they wouldn’t understand it, even if it was carefully presented as a children’s cartoon.

              (No offense to English Lit. majors.)

How does one respond to all the distorted things she said (especially when 4 seconds into his response she cut him off- that gal likes to hear herself speak, but looking at MSLSD’s rating not too many other people like to hear it). Poor thing, she would be more useful at a soup kitchen or a medical marijuana dispensory).

            Thank you WFM, learn something every day. Your comment on a largely wasted, liberal, California education reminds me. After three years of French in H.S. I found myself on 48th Street in NYC one day when this guy comes up to me and asks, in French, for directions to the UN building. He doesn’t speak a word of English. Well after about five minutes of stumbling I’m able to understand him and send him on his way with directions. That was the one and only time, after three years of studying French, that I had the opportunity to use it.

            Also had Latin for two years but that does come in handy.

      The one book that focused me the most on the absolute intellectual corruption of the media was “Bias” by Bernie Goldberg many many years ago. He explains the mentality, arrogance and elitist superiority attitude of “news”casters and the culture of propaganda they themselves fail to see they are embroiled in.

      (btw it is mild compared to what they have since evolved into)

      • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

        I have that book, and just for kicks read it again 2 weeks ago. Bernie’s book is WAY mild for what we have now, but it is a great book!

      • NYGino

        Agree with that sDee. I read that book when it first came out about 10 years ago. After reading it I gave it to an inquisitive friend on condition that after he’s done with it he passes it on with the same condition. Often wonder how far that book has traveled.

        Anyway, he really does strip away the lies and exposes the mindset of the MSM.

        He worked with Dan Rather for a long time so he knows bias and slants.

    Uh….if it takes palestinains an hour to go two miles and that makes them late to work….leave an hour earlier and get to work on time. Easy solution. Finding terrorist bombers should be that easy, but it’s not and Israel is going to protect its citizens to the best of their ability. Why don’t bleeding heart liberals like Ms. Mitchell ever worry about the security and safety of Israelis?????? When was the last time an Israeli slipped into the Gaza Strip and bombed a school full of kids, or a packed bus????? Correct, that’s a tactic of Hamas and its ilk, so the Israelis are going to be cautious when gets into Israel. Good for them.

  • p m

    Ms.Mitchell is inarticulate, cannot organize her misinformation, and attempts to deny any response to her drivel. Complaining about the checkpoints that arabs ‘have to put up with’, yet denying their sole responsibility for same. What a maroon.

  • marketcomp

    What a bunch of incoherent intellectual psycho babble. She is so void of common sense that I can’t believe any teacher or road got her to where she is with that stupidity that she parades everyday. The Palestine government wants top-down centralize government control of their people, which is communist, and becasue of this they will not have a free market economy that encourages economic growth. On the other have Israel respects the individual and embodies free market principles. The cultures are very different one communist, Palestine, and the other respects the individual, Israel. So the question to ask is why don’t Palestine want to be more like Israel?

            They are believed to have originated in the Grecian Isles, possibly even a mix of Greeks and Peoples that lived along the coast of what is now Turkey.

            Addendum: Their origin kinda-sorta predates Islam by, oh, only a couple of thousand or so years, but their “supporters” just kind of overlook that.

            • keyesforpres

              Thanks Ken. I thought I’d remembered reading something like that a number of months ago.

              Yeah, the Fakestinians have no relation to the Philistines. They died out long ago.

      • keyesforpres

        Remember, the original “Palestinians” were the Jews. The Roman Emporer named Hadrian renamed Israel “Palestine” to try to erase the Jewish history and claim to the land. The Fakestinians are muslims and muslims did not roar through until much later.

    Hey Andrea, you talk about the wall which has kept Israelis safe since it’s been up, yet we don’t hear a peep from any of you people about the wall built at Olympic Village that the Lebanese demanded against Israel. Hmmm, nor the mention of the 40th anniversary of the murders of 11 Israelis at the Munich games. Why is that Andrea? Oh rhetorical, I already know. You people hate Israel because they are in your views the agressive and oppressive ones.

    Everyone loves to focus on how “offended” Palestinians are. It’s a mindless belief in some nonexistent “people.” If only some of the eastern libs would read some history, they’d know there never was a country called “Palestine” with its own, Palestinian people.

    Do they speak Palestinian? Can they locate the capital of a country called Palestine? (Other than simply declaring Jerusalem as their capital, even though no government meets there.) No, they cannot. They are a mixture of mostly Arab people from the surrounding region, most of whom moved into the area after the Jews began buying land and creating jobs.

    • keyesforpres

      Exactly. In fact, most of the Fakestinians’ ancestors were nomads. The only “claim” they have to the land is maybe an ancestor walked across the land 100 years ago or so.

    • p m

      The name is an invention of arafat (can’t capitalize that name) from when they started the myth of some sort of native arab population in the area. That’s why they should only ever be referred to as arabs.

        Please, please….PLEASE actually read the Islamic texts, delve into Islamic theopolitical jurisprudence and Islamic history before making such a misguided and unacknowledged remark. Had you done the aforementioned you’d have known “how” Islam spread from Asia to Spain. Jihad is a pillar in Islam that the prophet Muhammad had partaken on numerous occasions since January, 623’s Nakhla Raid. Read about Charles Martel. Read about Timurlane. Read about the Barbary Wars. Heck read about Vlad Tepes who fought the Islamic horde’s jihad against the Christian West on numerous occasions and learn how and where he learned the “art” of impaling. Learn about how the modern Gypsy people stem from the Hindu in India – Hindustan/Hind – that fled from Islamic Jihad which eventually blessed India with their own “Palestinian” state called “Pakistan”. Learn about the Barbary Wars where Thomas Jefferson and John Adams went to London to negotiate with the representative of the Islamic/Caliphate Barbary States. What did this Islamic envoy tell the Brits and the Americas resulting in America’s first Navy and first “forgotten war”….
        Islam has nothing to do with the old Soviet/Communist regime today aside from using their oil money to purchase weapons to kill Jews, Americans and all Kufr/Harbis.

    Andrea Mitchell intentionally and deliberately attempts to paint the instigators and perpetrators of terrorism, as the victims of their own terrorist acts, thus having to endure their own consequences of their own acts.. That’s what’s really offensive, that she and her ilk treat the public with utter contempt, and intellectually insult us, the public, by trying to pass off a false narrative lie as the truth.

    She is not fooling anyone of course, except those who already entertain and subscribe to their anti-semitic anti-Israeli hate filled view.

    To people like Andrea Mitchell, journalistic integrity is something they read of in past history pages of journalism that once was in America. What she and all of her biased prejudiced so-called journalists do, is to start off with their ending narrative, then fill in the rest of their story line with distorted facts and lies, to fit their agenda driven story line.

    The American people know all to well the truth of her and her biased media ilk, their biased prejudiced anti-Israeli propagandist tripe propagandist lies, which they try to pass off as reporting journalism.

    Thank goodness for the new real media arena that reveals the truth, which they do not, cannot, and will never control.

    andrea mitchell- sigh- why can you not just be honest. So lets take it a little further shall we; what if a group of folks hated the Andrea Mitchell family. They live on the next block. No matter what concessions you make, you finally figure out they just despise you and your family for simply being the Andrea Mitchell family. They throw rocks at your children; they put bombs on their children to kill your children..to kill you. They fire rockets into your neighborhood to kill you. So what would you do? Would you not, at the very least, make certain that the people that hate you and your children are stopped and searched for bombs before coming into your neighborhood? Of course you would. Because you love your children. And this is why you are dishonest and you are such a shameful person. It is sad. And you are a hollow human being.
    And by the way, the West Bank was a phrase made up by the Brits in the seventies. Her name is Judea and Sumeria. Ju—-dea- Jews! I don’t know you, and I don’t want to know you. You are terribly dishonest and please appreciate that I am not just writing this as a Jew. I am that. But I am a great American. My friends are Christians, Catholics, Jews, they are Asians, Whites, Blacks, and all those in between. We understand this amazing beautiful country and yes… believe it or not we are all conservatives. We love our country and are tired of you in the media that, rather than report the news, shape the news.
    And your time has come to an end. This is not a threat, this is pragmatic. I am a very nice person. But there is a time when resolve must take over and win the day. That day is Nov 6th.

    There is no such thing as a “Palestinian”. Neither Moses, Jesus nor the pedophile “Prophet” Muhammad didn’t know any either. Mutt Romney should also know that Joseph Smith, the inventor of Mormonism, also didn’t know any such mythical creature as a “Palestinian” People…

    Good Lord don’t people know anything anymore? Jew=Judaism the religion of the Judean People=from the ancient kingdom nation of Judea as carved in stone on the Arch of Titus…still sitting on the Via Sacra in Rome since 82AD for all to see…. The Jews, or Judeans, are directly comparable to, say, the Italian, Scottish, Irish or German communities living outside of their ancestral nation-states however the Jews had theirs invaded and destroyed.
    I wonder what the Arab-Jewish conflict over the REGION of Palestine has in common with the Spaniard-Portuguese Reconquista?
    Inquiring minds want to know….. ;-)
