10th President of the State of Israel
"I am leaving politics and the Likud [Party]. From now on, I am a man for all of the people."
-newly elected Israeli President Reuven "Ruby" Rivlin (translated from YNET News Flash)
Well, I cannot think of too many other individuals than Ruby Rivlin suitable for the supposedly symbolic role of President within the State of Israel's excuse for a democratic system of government.
I am also certainly pleased that outgoing President Shimon Peres did not stick around for another year, if not indefinitely, as had been
However, I am no longer fooled by the pomp, the ceremony, and the spin of the mainstream news media's attempt to tell me what is or isn't news, and what is or what isn't important.
Rather, I am interested in what is not being reported, or reported but with only a few lines, buried somewhere between the obituaries and crossword puzzle.
I am interested in the well-timed, simultaneous events which the election of a new president was supposed to distract us from?
The Vatican's take over of King David's Tomb, perhaps, which has been denied up and down by most every member of the Israeli government and his cousin?
More secret agreements, like the Oslo Death Accords, with those who would wipe Israel off the face of the globe?
More Land giveaways?
More releases of Arab murderers?
The possibilities are endless.
And speaking of Shimon Peres, remember the little boy who was willing to see, and willing to point out to his fellow subjects that the Emperor was indeed naked, and not dressed in his newly made finery?
Well, likewise, I feel like I am practically the only one who is willing to see, and willing to point out that in the supposedly apolitical role of Israeli President, Shimon Peres was anything but apolitical! In fact, he was political in almost everything he did and said!
And what about Shimon Peres's plans for the future? ...besides complicity in the Vatican takeover of King David's Tomb, of course.
Perhaps that was what we were being distracted from seeing.
