Like the long-running popular comedy show, "I Love Lucy," starring Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball, we've got our own version of that zany couple right here on Open Salon.
As many know, the traveler freely confirms that he goes by the monnicker, lew, and barbara is commonly known as babs, here.
The show would, therefore, be called: "I Love Lewsie."
So the question remains, what's the difference between the two?
I can see two notable differences;
a. babs is deluded enough to say: Well, Mark, I AM in fact a liberal. Barbara Joanne, DECEMBER 12, 2010 09:08 AM and
b. babs has never, to my knowledge, threatened to delete comments, even those contrary to her agenda.
This delusional couple have often teamed up to attack anyone who has the temerity to criticize israel or offer a defense of the Palestinians.
When Judy Mandelbaum got an EP for her superb blog post: "Forget the flotilla: Gaza activists take to the air," the post garnered 118 comments, a large portion of which were lew and babs fighting the world.
babs issued the following refrain: "I said, and you fail to understand it, that if the Palestinians accepted Israel and renounced terror, they'd have peace tomorrow," and trotted out some more of her eternal, infernal, larry elder and dennis prager quotations, BUT
when one of the most gentlemanly and scholarly members of our "community" confronted her with this official document printed in one of the most pro-israeli sites on the Internet, "The Jewish Virtual Library" documenting exactly the demands she was seeking:
"LETTER FROM YASSER ARAFAT TO PRIME MINISTER RABIN:
September 9, 1993
Prime Minister of Israel
Mr. Prime Minister,
The signing of the Declaration of Principles marks a new era in the history of the Middle East. In firm conviction thereof, I would like to confirm the following PLO commitments:
The PLO recognizes the right of the State of Israel to exist in peace and security.
The PLO accepts United Nations Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338.
The PLO commits itself to the Middle East peace process, and to a peaceful resolution of the conflict between the two sides and declares that all outstanding issues relating to permanent status will be resolved through negotiations.
The PLO considers that the signing of the Declaration of Principles constitutes a historic event, inaugurating a new epoch of peaceful coexistence, free from violence and all other acts which endanger peace and stability. Accordingly, the PLO renounces the use of terrorism and other acts of violence and will assume responsibility over all PLO elements and personnel in order to assure their compliance, prevent violations and discipline violators
In view of the promise of a new era and the signing of the Declaration of Principles and based on Palestinian acceptance of Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338, the PLO affirms that those articles of the Palestinian Covenant which deny Israel's right to exist, and the provisions of the Covenant which are inconsistent with the commitments of this letter are now inoperative and no longer valid. Consequently, the PLO undertakes to submit to the Palestinian National Council for formal approval the necessary changes in regard to the Palestinian Covenant.
she dismissively remarked: " . . . (And I don't accept Arafat's word on this either, but no matter.)"
