Your Mandatory Daily Holocaust Reminder

At special ceremony, UN pays tribute to victims of Holocaust

"The United Nations held a special ceremony today to pay homage to the six million Jews and countless others slaughtered in the Nazi death camps of the Second World War, stressing that the drive to prevent a repetition of such horror was one of the reasons the Organization was founded.

The ceremony, originally scheduled for 27 January, the annual Holocaust memorial day, was delayed by a heavy snow storm in New York.

“Let us remember: the United Nations was created, in part, to prevent such a tragedy from ever happening again,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said. “As United Nations Secretary-General, I never forget this fundamental mission.”

Oh? Then the world's largest outdoor concentration camp in Gaza doesn't seem to bother you?
Also - If you want to be president, you have to go beg for Tel Aviv's permission.

The GOP's Israel primary

"Aspiring politicians in New York once made a point of visiting the three I’s: Italy, Ireland and Israel.

For the GOP’s presidential prospects in 2012, it’s all about one: Israel.

A stop in the Jewish state is becoming as critical to a would-be president’s political resume as an early trip to Iowa or New Hampshire, a sort of global two-fer. Get some early foreign policy street-cred and play a little dog-whistle politics with Christian conservatives who are deeply invested in Israel’s fate - some because they view it as critical to the Biblical vision of the end of days."

Also -a shitty little pariah state demands a groveling, public display of american fealty yet again.

Israel urges U.S. to reaffirm support in light of Egypt unrest
