Israeli Flotilla Raid
Sean opened Tuesday’s show and jumped right into the hot topic of the day -- the recent turmoil between Israeli forces and activists on a flotilla seeking to break the Gaza blockade. Eyewitness accounts stated shots were fired before Israeli commandos boarded the ship. Israel says its forces started shooting after passengers assaulted them. “I’m watching the world’s reaction to all of this and it’s sad and shocking all at the same time,” Sean said. “But what’s most shocking starts with our own president. Predictably, the whole world has erupted in this condemnation of Israel over this raid this weekend and the only thing Obama can say is ‘the U.S. regrets the loss of life and injuries sustained and is currently working to understand the circumstances surrounding the tragedy…’” Hardly a voice of support for our loyal ally in the Middle East.

Palin’s Nosy New Neighbor
Sarah Palin has a new neighbor in Wasilla, Alaska, well, at least for the next five months. Famed author Joe McGinniss rented the house next door for the next half year while he writes a book about Palin. The former governor wrote on her Facebook page, “He moved up all the way from Massachusetts to live right next to us - while he writes a book about me. Knowing of his many other scathing pieces of 'journalism', we're sure to have a doozey to look forward to with this treasure he's penning. Wonder what kind of material he'll gather while overlooking Piper's bedroom, my little garden, and the family's swimming hole?" “Boy what a weirdo…yuck!” Sean exclaimed, commenting on the story. “Listening to this guy gives me the creeps. You listen to this guy and you can just tell where this book is going.” Palin has decided to give McGinniss a great view from his new digs – a 14 foot fence she’s having installed to protect her family’s privacy from his wandering eyes.
Why Is The World Condemning Israel?
Authors Brigitte Gabriel and David Horowitz joined the program to discuss the condemnation of Israel that has occurred as a result of their attack on a flotilla over the weekend. “Israel warned this so called group of peace activists again and again to respect their blockade and told them there would be consequences. They precipitated this confrontation by refusing to listen to the warnings – and now the world condemns Israel for all of this,” Sean said. “This will escalate to a war there, thanks in part to the perversity of the Obama administration, which has invited this,” Horowitz told Sean. Brigitte Gabriel agreed with David, “Anti-Semitism is rising all over the world. It’s amazing how over 200 countries at the UN can come together and agree on condemning Israel. It’s so hard to get these countries to agree on one thing, they haven’t even condemned North Korea for killing 46 South Korean sailors – and here they are condemning Israel.”
