On November 22, 2014, Vice President Biden met with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Istanbul. The agenda was ‘consultation’ with this alleged “valued ally” of the Administration. To ease the conversation, Biden announced at a joint press conference $135 million in aid for Syrian refugees in Turkey. It all had to do with Erdogan’s opposition to the US led coalition fight against the Islamic State, formerly ISIS in both Syria and Iraq. more>>>
From the interview, Mr Schanzer - "...they have got a heightened presence on the streets...and they [Israel] are certainly keeping closer tabs on potential suspects in East Jerusalem [sic: Dear Mr Schanzer: you would be better advised just to say "Jerusalem", or "parts of Jerusalem where there are a lot of Muslims". More - "It is a very hard thing to do when you have people who radicalize at the spur of the moment." He should have said, "It is a very hard thing to do when the city is full of Muslims who can - and often do - Go Jihad on you at any moment". And I wish, I wish, I wish people like Mr Schanzer would reconsider their terminology - "West Bank", "Palestinians", "East Jerusalem". Every time people use these terms they cede psychological ground to the Enemy - to the Mohammedan Mob. There is quite a good discussion of the problems by the redoubtable Eric Rozenman of CAMERA, here: http://www.jwire.com.au/words-matter-vocabulary-defines-israeli-palestinian-conflict/ "Words Matter: How Vocabulary Defines the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict". Except, of course, that it isn't "the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict'; it is Israel's self-defence against genocidal jihad waged by Muslims.
