I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

Netanyahu ad in Florida

As Digby would say - for gawds sake!

Netanyahu ad to debut in Florida

Bibi Netanyahu is not running a campaign in the US - it just looks that way in this new ad.
A spot featuring only the Israeli prime minister talking about Iran is set to hit the airwaves in select Florida markets tomorrow, a media tracking source confirms.
 The spot is the work of a c4 called Secure America Now - which, thanks to its tax status, doesn't have to disclose its donors.
 A Republican involved with the project said its airing in Miami, West Palm Beach and Ft. Myers. The flight is ultimately going to be $1 million, the official said - a media-tracking source said about $400,000 has been placed so far.
 Those markets house some of the state's largest Jewish communities. The spot comes just after Netanyahu, who all but endorsed Mitt Romney in Israel in July, appeared on "Meet the Press" and distanced himself a bit from the GOP candidate's criticisms of President Obama, but also discussed Israel's concern about a nuclear Iran.
 The pollster for Secure America Now is John McLaughlin, who has worked with Netanyahu's Likud Party.
As we noted yesterday people are questioning Netanyahu's sanity or as a commentor on the above post says:
But Netanyahu is an erratic, panicky megalomaniac. His meddling in American domestic politics does great harm to Israel's relationship with the US because it feeds the trope the anti-Semitic that Israel is seeking to control the United States.
With the Israeli military and intelligence opposed to an attack on Iran in addition to over 60% of the Israeli people Netanyahu is not doing his country any good and when Obama wins in November he will be lucky to get a Visa.  Sorry Bibi, the tail can't wag the dog anymore and that is a good thing for both the United States and Israel.  For too long the U.S. has been letting their friend Israel drive drunk.
