Tea Anyone?

There is a movement spreading around the world.  It is a movement of Conservatives, Patriots in their own
lands, Lovers of Freedom.

This phenomena started in the United States by ordinary folks who were tired of the government spending like a drunken sailor (Apologies to the sailors, drunken or not.), bailing out their friends in the banks, the brokerage houses, the auto industry.  They are tired of their elected officials not listening to what they, their bosses want.  They are furious at Obamacare and other socialist bills.  And for the first time it was these Conservatives who have taken to the streets in protest.  Scaring the Liberal Elites out of their wits.  Yet no violence, no racism, no pollution, no hatred was ever done by these folks.

And the movement has spread.  To Canada, to Great Britain, to Australia, and now to Israel.
Move over America. Israel is joining the tea party.

A new grassroots effort is beginning that is modeled after the American conservative social movement. The Israeli version promises to be just as patriotic, just as provocative and just as antagonistic to US President Barack Obama.

The movement will hold its opening rally on Sunday night at the Zionist Organization of America House in Tel Aviv under the banner “Saying no to Obama.”

The immediate goal of the movement will be to pressure Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu not to give in to Obama’s demand that Israel renew the construction moratorium in Judea and Samaria.

Israeli Tea Party spokeswoman Sarah Tiktinsky predicted that Obama would renew efforts to push Israel following next Tuesday’s midterm elections in the US, and said Obama’s leverage on Netanyahu must be countered with equal force by the Right.

“Netanyahu has been under intense pressure from Washington,” Tiktinsky said. “History has proven that Bibi caves in to pressure, so something must be done to stop him. No one in the Likud faction is taking the serious steps to stop him, so it must come from the grassroots.”

Current and former politicians will take part in the event, including Likud MKs Ayoub Kara, Danny Danon and Yariv Levin, as well as former Likud MK Michael Kleiner, who is one of the rally’s organizers. Settler leaders will also be welcomed, led by Shomron Regional Council Chairman Gershon Mesika, who has publicly compared Obama to Haman and Antiochus
I do like that first rally's name:  Saying no to Obama.

I wonder if it is a prophecy of what is to come on November 2nd.  Let us pray that it will be so.

First of all, here it should be called Coffee Party. Second point is that pushing Bibi from side to side may cause him to vibrate.

Do we really need this?
