We all know the gay slur (for which he has apologized) is an absolute strawman argument: The real reason Joe Lieberman and Bill Kristol are raking him over the coals is insufficient fealty to Bibi Netanyahu.

Does Israel have legitimate security issues? Yes. Does Israel have to factor into its decisions Hamas and Hezbollah? Yes! Does Israel have the right to defend itself? To worry about a psychotic Iranian President who denies the Holocaust and speaks openly of wiping Israel off the map? HELL YES!

What Israel does NOT have the right to do is to interfere in our political process, which is exactly what Netanyahu attempted to do in our presidential campaign! Well. FUCK. HIM!

I've read some articles by neocons stating that the nomination of Chuck Hagel, a Republican who is actually sane, a man who wore this country's uniform, a man who reached across the aisle while in the Senate, would be a slap in the face of Netanyahu.

If so, that is the best reason for President Obama to nominate him! Remember, we're talking about a foreigner who came to the nation's capital and had the fucking arrogance to lecture our President in the White House! How's that for a slap in the face, Neo Con Artists?

The Israelis have been slapping US in the face for decades, knowing that their American shills like AEI and AIPAC will suppress any dissent.

Well, guess what? IT'S TIME WE SLAPPED BACK! If current Likudnik policies continue, I advocate the following:

1. Cutting off every penny of our taxpayer dollars to this rogue regime.
2. Clearly desingnating it as a rogue regime.
3. Immediate recognition of a Palestinian state.
4. Economic sanctions against an increasingly-fascist Israel.

Sad to say, but the children have grown up to emulate their abusers. And now, they want US to make war against those whom they fear might be abusers, even though they have the most powerful military in the Middle East, including nuclear weapons.

Let's stop obeying.

Let's stop supplying.

Let's stop fighting their wars.

And let's start labeling foreign agents like AIPAC for what they are.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
