Bibi, Tzipi and Joe

The front page of the 'Süddutsche Zeitung' today has a picture showing election posters of Bibi and Tzipi, two of my "favourite" zany Zionists, being put up and the little caption beside the pictures discusses Israel's alternative as being between hard, harsh, uncompromising Bibi and a "want to continue the peace process" Tzipi and on the same front page we have a main article about the Vatican giving in to worldwide pressure, which came about because one of their clergy has denied the Holocaust. Most of page two carries on with this theme, page three is devoted to the Israeli elections and has a smaller article of the German Foreign Minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier meeting another zany Zionist, Hillary Clinton, and the main editorial refers again to the Vatican and the Holocaust denier and the little bit of lecturing that the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, has been indulging in vis-a-vis her compatriot the wonderfully weird, his, "Hamdillah" Holiness, Benidict XVI.(1)
Now, first things first, but do we really need to devote the kind of space toTzipi and Bibi that we failed to devote to the massacre of hundreds of innocents a few weeks ago and do we really need to do it in such a way as to even suggest that we are being offered a real alternative in anything but the tone of the rhetoric that will come out of "Zionistsan"? Secondly, I am hardly a fan of the Roman "God Squad" and yes, the Holocaust did happen, however, should a man who belongs to an organisation that believes in virgin births, people walking on water, angels flying in the sky and lots and lots of other crazy, crazy things, be taken at all seriously? And, if you do happen to be one of the non-certified mad believers, aren't there more important things to report than what one man thinks about a genocide that took place over sixty years ago? For instance the current genocide in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the bombing of civilians in Afghanistan and, yes, the ethnic cleansing and massacre of Palestinians in their own country, which brings us back to Bibi and Tzipi and it looks as if the last thing we are going to get in our newspapers, is real news and wouldn't it be wonderful if we all just stopped reading the mainstream press until it started reporting things worth reporting and the evidence would seem to suggest that that happening is just about as likely as a virgin birth, angels flying in the sky, the one and only "son of God" doing a hop, skip and a jump across Loch Ness or our zany Zionists relinquishing their absurd biblical claim on a country that isn't theirs.

The picture shows the man who represents "God's son" on earth, the man who has a direct line to the big man in the sky, his Holiness, the one and only, the great, marvelous, Benidict XVI, alias Joseph Ratzinger. Has anyone noticed the slight resemblance between him and Bibi?
