So When Will Abe Foxman Go After Secretary Gates?

Asked by Yochi Dreazen of The Wall Street Journal at a press conference this morning to address Gen. David Petraeus’ recent testimony that the Israel-Palestinian conflict’s persistence “foments anti-American sentiment,” Defense Secretary Robert Gates said that he didn’t know if it had a “direct” influence on U.S. security, but “the lack of progress toward Middle East peace clearly is an issue that is exploited by our adversaries in the region, and is a source of, certainly, political challenges.” There’s “no question,” Gates said, that the “absence of Middle East peace” impacts U.S. interests in the region.

Seeming like he was dissatisfied over the level of discourse on the issue, Gates added that “the U.S. has considered peace in the Middle East to be a national security interest for decades.”

Petraeus has tried to lower tempers over the suddenly controversial remarks, most recently yesterday in response to a question by Phil Klein of The American Spectator. That hasn’t, so far, stopped the Anti-Defamation League’s Abraham Foxman from attacking the general. So set your stopwatch to figure out how long it’ll take Foxman to go after Gates.

You can buy it in rolls or in precut lengths and special shapes. Some conditions call for a basic strip of tape, while others call for something asics running shoes more complicated, such as a fan or diamond. If you have unusual body proportions, you asics tiger shoes may want to buy asics gel running shoes a roll and cut it yourself so that you’re not limited to the dimensions of the precut shapes offered. You can buy the tape in various colors or in a skin tone that is less conspicuous. Brands include Kinesio Tex Tape (sold to health-care and sports-medicine professionals), KT Tape and Rock Tape (precut lengths, sold directly to consumers) and Spider Tape (precut shapes). I have friends who have tried tape and found it to be very helpful; they’ve raved about the pain relief or the reduction in fatigue. Others have tried it and felt that the results didn’t justify the time and money spent. It’s certainly worth trying out if you have a sore muscle or body part. Note, though, that the asics onitsuka tiger manufacturers are unanimous in saying that if you have a serious injury, you need a doctor, not a roll of tape. There’s no taping that can help a stress fracture or asics gel shoes a badly torn meniscus.
