Bibi Netanyahu At U.N.

Netanyahu's bomb steals the show in his UN speech

JERUSALEM (AP) — When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held up a cartoon-like drawing of a bomb during hisspeech at the U.N., he set off an explosion of jokes and mockery — but it also got plenty of attention.
The Bibi Bomb, as it's being called using Netanyahu's nickname, is the latest in a series of props used by the Israeli leader as he tries to keep the global spotlight on Iran's disputed nuclear program.
The image of Netanyahu and the diagram of a bomb with a lighted fuse was top news around the world. Headlines in Europe referred to Netanyahu's "bomb cartoon" and "comic strip."
"How much enriched uranium do you need for a bomb? And how close is Iran to getting it?" Netanyahu asked in his speech Thursday to the U.N. General Assembly. "Well, let me show you. I brought a diagram."
He proceeded to use a marker to draw a red line across what he said was a threshold that Iran was approaching and that Israel could not tolerate — 90 percent of the way to the uranium enrichment needed to make a nuclear weapon.
Netanyahu is a fan of visual aids. At the U.N. in 2009, he waved the blueprints for the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz. For a speech to the pro-Israel lobby AIPAC in March, he brought letters between the World Jewish Congress and the U.S. government written during the Holocaust. Both documents were used to link the Nazis and the possible modern threat of a nuclear-armed Iran.
He also uses props on domestic issues. At a news conference in Jerusalem earlier this year, Netanyahu drew a tree to symbolize the state of Israel. As he explained his economic vision, he added roots, fruit and leaves to represent different facets of society. Journalists in the room chuckled, but the diagram made headlines.
"It's a perfect and extreme example of how politicians and leaders find themselves adapting their modes of communication in order to get the maximum amount of publicity," said Gadi Wolfsfeld, a professor of political communication at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya, a college near Tel Aviv.
Within hours of Netanyahu's speech Thursday, the stunt was fodder for jokes.
A "Bibibomb" hashtag made waves on Twitter. Memes of Netanyahu and the bomb diagram surfaced, with the weapon replaced with a photo of President Barack Obama and Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli.
On "The Daily Show," Jon Stewart mocked Netanyahu's simplistic drawing by saying: "Bibi, bubbe. What's with the Wile E. Coyote nuclear bomb?" Stewart then presented his solution to counter such a weapon by holding up a drawing of an equally cartoonish giant magnet.
Barcelona's El Periodico newspaper poked fun at the drawing in a headline that said Netanyahu used "a ridiculous chart" to warn about the advance of Tehran's nuclear program.
Madrid's El Mundo said: "Netanyahu explains the nuclear threat with a comic strip."
Photos of the prime minister and the drawing were in a handful of Austrian newspapers, including The Kurier, headlined: "Netanyahu and the Bomb Cartoon."
But even the mockery was welcomed by Netanyahu's supporters.
The jokes "are maybe part of the success because it was an unforgettable speech that delivered its message," Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon told Israel's Channel 2 TV. "Today everyone is talking about it."
It's not the first time that visual aids have been used in a U.N. speech. Displays of aerial photos were used in a 1962 speech by then-U.S. Ambassador Adlai Stevenson on the Cuban missile crisis and satellite imagery was used in a 2003 presentation by then-U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell to make the case that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.
While the simplistic drawing displayed by Netanyahu succeeded in grabbing attention, it's not clear what effect it will have on the international community.
Netanyahu has repeatedly been at odds with world powers over Iran's nuclear program. He has argued that time is running out to stop Iran from becoming a nuclear power and that the threat of force must be seriously considered.
While the international community has pushed for diplomacy as a way to dislodge Iran, Netanyahu has prodded world powers to set a red line on Iran. Obama has vowed to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power but has rejected Netanyahu's demands for setting an ultimatum past which the U.S. would attack. Iran says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.
Israel considers a nuclear-armed Iran to be an existential threat, citing Iranian denials of the Holocaust, its calls for Israel's destruction, its development of missiles capable of striking the Jewish state and its support for hostile Arab militant groups. Iran says its nuclear program is for civilian purposes, a claim that is rejected by much of the international community.
Wolfsfeld said the diagram could be viewed as patronizing or insulting by diplomats.
"In this familiar ploy, (Netanyahu) apparently bought himself a respectable spot in the pictures that will appear in American newspapers and on television," columnist Eitan Haber wrote in Friday's Yediot Ahronot newspaper. "But gimmicks and speeches don't destroy the Iranian nuclear threat."
AP writers George Jahn in Vienna and Alan Clendenning in Madrid contributed to this report.

Para Norma lly Yours - Part 2

A few years ago, my wonderful friend Betty crossed over after a long battle with Lung Cancer.  One very hot night I was trying to fall asleep and there was not a breath of air, even with the a/c on.  I began to cry missing Betty when I felt a fluttering on my cheek that created a breeze.  Thinking it was my imagination, I went back to sleep.  Again the fluttering happened on my cheek with the ensuing breeze.   I was really wondering what was going on? All of a sudden, I heard Betty speak to me.  She reiterated how happy and free she felt by being released from the suffering, sick physical body.  It was she who took the form of a butterfly and explained that it meant freedom from all pain to her.  We affectionately spoke through telepathy a bit with her again reassuring me that she was just fine.  Oh how precious to know that butterflies can represent freedom for our loved ones in spirit.  This brings to a close the second portion of my butterfly experiences with RubyGlow and Betty.  It made me happy to share the good news with those of you who enjoy reading Norma's Ark.  Thank you to my Beautiful Betty and Precious RubyGlow for trusting me to hear you when you speak to me.  Bless you and keep you safe in Rainbow.  "Genuine Love" knows no barriers.  RubyNorma *o*

This is part one of a two part 
Para Norma lly Yours.  Butterflies
are a symbol of freedom to me.  We have not seen any in person since moving to Central Arizona.  Today, we disinterred RubyGlow because the flower pot she was buried in started to crack.  Right after we finished, I felt my Beloved Ruby's presence saying it was good, and she felt happy in Rainbow.  Then the butterfly appeared and stayed flying all around me and the backyard. It was beautiful, uncanny, and moved me to tears of happiness.  I believe this was RubyGlow's way of telling us that she was free of all pain and happy.  Prior to her crossing over to Rainbow, Ruby was failing in health. When she threw a clot that paralyzed her, we gave RubyGlow the needle of peace.  From the very beginning she has made herself known and present in my home after crossing over.. I rejoice in seeing her flying free and painless to show us that life continues after physical death.  God bless my RubyGlow, and all that we love. Amen ~ RubyNorma *o*

Para Norma lly Yours

A very long time ago when my Precious MOM was still alive, she and I shared one of the most phenomenal paranormal experiences I have ever participated in. There was a complete power black out  that affected New York and New Jersey plus other states.  MOM was in Rego Park Queens, NY while I was visiting a pal in Rutherford, NJ.  I needed to get back to her because she was ill with a heart condition.  Suddenly I realized that driving a car was going to be an enormous challenge without traffic lights or street lights.  All I had were my car's headlights. It was frightening to say the least.  

MOM and I had the ability to communicate telepathically.
We used it regularly instead of verbally speaking.  It was normal for us.   She began giving me driving instructions on how to handle the power black out  safely.  MOM  told me to take a certain street and not another, she told me the easiest way to get to the tunnel connecting NY to NJ, and she told me how to drive in the winding tunnel without any lights inside to give me a sense of safety... until I could finally get home to Queens.  Once in Rego Park and parking the sweat drenched car, she said do not go to my building where I was on the fifteenth floor but rather to come to her building.  I did what she telepathically advised.  She had sent the superintendant with a flashlight to find me in the street and we crawled up two flights to her apartment.  All elevators were at a halt and some people were still stuck inside them sans light or ventilation.  By the time we reached her apartment door she opened it and said to me, "Well Mammala, did you hear me giving you driving instructions?"

As you can see from our special soul-relationship, she was my best friend.  God Bless You MOM.  Until we meet again. amen Love RubyNorma *o*

We were wondering if telepathy can supercede a language barrier? Then I realized it is more of a thought form so why not! Good article Dr. Yanez. Reverend Smith in ND

Here’s a photo of the happiest day of my life at about, or almost three.  The majority of my long gone family is behind the blanket at Rockaway beach, NY.  Even then, I was an entertainer.  I was singing my little heart out and people were coming over to enjoy the baby’s performance!
My Precious MOM and Grandma Minnie, her MOM are on the blanket.  DAD was in the background with all my aunts, some uncles, and cousins.   God bless that special and loving day.  It brings me smiles and happiness to see this innocent photo and me, so exquisitely untouched yet by life. *o*

I wish to pay tribute to the lady in this photo, and her mother Monica Morgan. This may have been taken around 1908. She, Josefina, was the mother  to my deceased husband Felipe Yanez, his famous and dramatic siblings, and was the paternal grandmother to my only child JoJo. 
I never met Josefina in person because the Cuban Revolution separated us.  Her mother was Monica Morgan who remained living with Josefina until her own death from throat Cancer.  I feel relatively certain that Monica was once a slave in Cuba, and will discuss this privately with anyone who wants to hear more about the heinous part of MAN's inhumanity to MAN, Woman, and child..  The name "Morgan" is a direct contact with J.P. Morgan's family, where Josefina lived for around two years with another light skinned brother.  The Morgan mansion housed them on only one condition.  They were never to make contact with their dark skinned Cuban mother Monica Morgan, or... they would forfeit the right to live there.  After two years away from their Afro-Cuban mother Monica, they chose to return to her in Cuba, rather than live a sterile life in J.P. Morgan's home.  You see, he was their grandfather via his son.  

Without going into too many more public details, I find myself respecting this lady more as each year passes.  The only contact with Josefina was through my deceased husband's recollections in NYC, and an occasional phone call which was censored by a Communist Dictatorship owned by Fidel Castro. Suffice it to say, this family was deeply and tragically involved in The Castro Cuban Revolution.

My mother-in-law lived through so much sorrow that I wonder how she survived?  Her 17 year old son killed himself.  Her next youngest sank in the middle of the ocean and was saved after eight days on a sinking raft, only to nearly lose his leg from injuries in the ship's sinking.  He witnessed many people drown and be eaten by sharks.  Others of her children escaped from Communist Cuba and she never saw them again.  There was a severe level of reprisals for not being Communists in a Communist nation that cost her dearly in so many ways.  How did this courageous and beautiful woman survive the many catastrophes in her life?  I am going to assume from our conversations that she was deeply religious. There was a potent element of The Catholic Religion, and also from Santeria, an Afro-Cuban religion. I know we prayed with each other on the phone, and cried together for wanting so much to know each other.  It was never to be. All I could do was to love and respect her from afar.  I imagine that Josefina's adult children who ran away from their homeland of Cuba, felt enormous yearnings for this amazingly strong, beautiful woman. After all, her mother Monica Morgan, was an icon for me.

With all my heart Josefina and Monica Morgan, I ask GOD to nurture you both...  and pray to know you on the other side of life.  You are role-models for me.  Courage and dignity cannot be bought and sold the way the Slave MASTERS sold human stock. 

When courage leaves my own bones, I focus on those who have taught me valid spiritual lessons.  You both are in that league.  Josefina, I am so proud of you to keep your mother near you when she was fatally ill.  That took a courage far greater than many of today's generations would do.  I know you loved her very deeply.  And rightly so Josefina, because I do too.  

Below is J.P. Morgan, who totally altered all your lives.  What kind of man would tell two young children never to see their mother again? Monica had four children with J.P. Morgan's son, I was told.  Two were pale and he allowed them his name.  Two were dark and he did not allow them to live with him.  I can only imagine what Monica Morgan, their mother, felt from the severe prejudice and cruelty. And yet, SLAVERY IS STILL ALIVE AS I WRITE THIS  DAMNING BLOG. He and his family could and should have shown more compassion and kindness to their relatives.  Just look at the face of hideous prejudice!   All their money could not buy kindness and compassion. Think about how many businesses are named after this man who would have claimed two light skinned grandchildren as his family providing they never spoke to their mother in Cuba ever again, and then he abandoned two dark grandchildren! I wonder if he disowned his son for fathering these four known children?
