What about it is not news? He said it today.
It is well established because it is true.
Maybe you are falling for the media bs that tries to claim Israel always existed for thousands of years as opposed to since 1948.
My views on Israel are that a bunch of Europeans decided to leverage holocaust guilt post WWII, when the US and England decided to redraw the worlds
borders, to get the "Holy Land" awarded to them. The historcal Jews still lived there, and called themselves Palestinian.
This is not news because he says this kind of stuff all the time. Are you surprised by his statement? Is it something that made you say, "Hmmm....I
did not know that."? I doubt it, because this is like the 1000th time he has said this.
It is news in the same way that him announcing he has to go to the bathroom is news.
The "media" bs you are talking about has more to do with the fact that they decided this was newsworthy, and ran the story. Know why? Because
there are people out there who want their news to entertain them, not inform them. This "news" in no way informs me of anything, other than he has
repeated himself once again.
And this is pure entertainment, nothing more. He has a speech this week at the UN. The news orgs want to sell print and drive ratings. They will
fully leverage the sawed off little Iranian leader as their fodder for these sales. And, just like a boxing match, they are going to hype it with
words like "off with the gloves" and "on the attack". They will then use words like "in defense" and "on the run" to describe the western
delegates. Just like the Ali/Frazier fight, this will receive the hype leading up to it that eclipses the actual event. Instead of "The Thrilla In
Manila" we have "The Dork In New York".
Pure hype, meant to drive ratings. And everyone has fallen for it (again).
If he actually says something new and interesting this time, I may have to eat my tie. Otherwise it will be a bunch of him talking about Allah, the
evils of the west, and his nations right to use nuclear tech for fuel. Not that I disagree with him entirely....but there is nothing "new" about
