In the Jewish world, if you're part of the in crowd, it doesn't matter how poorly you behave.

Obama to give Mary Robinson of Durbin fame the Medal of Freedom.

And heil to you, Mary Robinson
Adolph loves you more than you will know (Woe, woe, woe)
Allah bless you please, Mary Robinson
Durbin holds a place for those who hate
(Oy, oy, oy...oy, oy, oy)

We'd like to know a little bit about you for our song
We'd like to help you learn to like the Jews
Look around you, all you see are sycophantic eyes
Stroll around the White House and you'll feel at home

And heil to you, Mary Robinson
Adolph loves you more than you will know (Woe, woe, woe)
Allah bless you please, Mary Robinson
Durbin holds a place for those who hate
(Oy, oy, oy...oy, oy, oy)

Hide nukes in a hiding place where no one ever goes
Put it in your bookcase with your Protocols
It's a little secret, just the Robinsons' affair
Most of all, you've got to hide it from the Yids

You hate the Jews, Mary Robinson
Adolph loves you more than you will know (Woe, woe, woe)
Allah bless you please, Mary Robinson
Durbin holds a place for those who hate
(Hate, hate, hate...hate, hate, hate)

Sitting on a chair in the General Assembly
Going to the Zionism debate
Laugh about it, shout about it
When you've got the Jews
Ev'ry way you look at it, they lose

Where have you gone, Joseph Stalin
The comrades turn their lonely eyes to you (Not the Jews)
What's that you say, Mary Robinson
Uncle Joe has left and gone away
(Hey, hey, hey...hey, hey, hey)

I do not know but this sounds like a really stupid move from a business sense

How is 5WPR still in business???

state of disgust

"How is 5WPR still in business???"

Lets see, 5WPR is run by a conservative, right-wing guy, and Birthright is funded by a conservative right-wing guy.
Not hard to figure out.

Larry Rothstein

5W is in business and keeps growing. They were 21 largest agency in world this year.

Office of the Chief Rabbi

Judeo-thug.
Ronnie was President of a Jewish organziation that believed in a Jewish state on both banks of the Jordan.

Which moron approved the hiring of his firm?

Isa

Why 5WPR??

E a s y The thinking goes like this...

WE WANT RESULTS AND WE DON'T CARE YOU DO IT

Mr. Apikoros

I didn't know Charlie Bronfman was a conservative right-wing guy. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Julie

This is a total slap in the face. Birthright really should know better.

shmuel

Agree with all the above. Fire 5W.
And loved the song, YL. As usual.

Interesting as Jewschool pulled its post on 5WPR a few hours ago:

Meet Birthright’s Exciting New PR Team!!!
Jewschool
5WPR, headed by the uber-cool Alpha Dog of the PR World, Ronn Torossian, is now representing Birthright. Yay, good for the Jews! What are some of the cutting edge, creative ways 5W might represent Birthright? ...

Shmarya

Strange.

Maybe they're rewriting it.

5WPR, headed by the uber-cool Alpha Dog of the PR World, Ronn Torossian, is now representing Birthright.

Yay, good for the Jews!

What are some of the cutting edge, creative ways 5W might represent Birthright? Let’s look back on some of their past clients and tactics and see if we can figure it out!

Inspire Jews by reminding them that “Hitler was a hunter sent by god to help get the Jews back to the promised land.”
Understanding The Israel-Palestine Conflict with Ronn Torossian - “”I think we should kill a hundred Arabs or a thousand Arabs for every one Jew they kill.”
Highlighting the Cutting Edge Israeli Porn Industry
Impersonate respected religious leaders online to… no, wait, that didn’t really work.

Well, I’m sure he’ll come up with something. He’s a PR genius! Any alum who want to share their excitement about Birthright’s latest hire, drop them a line! alumni {at} birthrightisrael(.)com

Hat-tip, Shmarya

Mr. Apikoros

"Hitler was a hunter..."

That comment was actually made by Christian fundamentalist and certified religious nut John Hagee.

Yochanan Lavie

Re: the song: Thanks Shmuel.

Yochanan Lavie

5 Wankers (apologies: Bob Marley)

Don't worry about a thing,
cause every little thing gonna be Birthright
Singin: don't worry about a thing,
cause every little thing gonna be Birthright!

Rise up this mornin,
Frowned at the daily blog,
Five little Wankers
Are doing P.R.
Singin sweet songs
Of impersonations untrue,
Sayin, (this is their message to oh-you:)
(repeat first verse).

Birthright has a history as to its hires:

REINING IN ABUSE; In jurisdictional jungle, where does the buck stop in misconduct cases? By Richard Greenberg
JTA - January 10, 2007
http://www.jta.org/page_view_story.asp?intarticleid=17473&intcategoryid=4
...
Reform Rabbi Sheldon Zimmerman, who himself had been found by the CCAR to be in violation of the organization's guidelines on "sexual ethics and sexual boundaries."

A former CCAR president, Zimmerman was suspended for two years by the CCAR in 2000. He then resigned as president of the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, but went on to become executive vice president of birthright israel and then vice president for Renaissance and Renewal of United Jewish Communities.

On Mary Robinson, it sounds like its not quite so simple, for example: http://www.nytimes.com/2003/06/19/opinion/19iht-edmary_ed3_.html

state of the Jews

On Mary Robinson - see The New Republic. Their recollection of Mary is much closer to my own.
Its always nice to say you love Jews after the Jews have been screwed. But real leadership means stopping things like Durbin BEFORE they're a problem, not after. You take a moral stand based on values, not based on consensus. Mary Robinson is no leader and she hasn't earned the recognition such an award bestows.

ah-pee-chorus

yl: i had no idea you were "imitated". that sux.. well, often imitated, never duplicated. lets see them write clever parodies on a continuous basis.

Mr. Apikoros

How did this become a Mary Robinson thread, anyway?

Back to our Birthright Israel, and 5W Public Relations: When I think of Steinhardt, a certain four-letter word comes reflexively to mind.

Yochanan Lavie

Thanks, APC. I don't mind if other people do parodies, in fact I encourage it. But I do mind when 5WPR sockpuppets me, and has me saying pro-Rubashkin things. It was not fun.

ah-pee-chorus

YL: how do i know that was really you?

Yochanan Lavie

You don't...

ah-pee-chorus

this time i recognized your handwriting. it IS you.

Yochanan Lavie

Busted!

Proton Soup

was birthright the sponsor of those drunken jersey hoodlums in that video?

Sarah

Zimmerman's wife forgave him and said it was all no one's business but hers and her husband's (like Hillary Clinton and Silda Spitzer) so women like that could give these organizations an excuse to hire the disgraced rabbi. And the Reform Movement covered it up for years before they could no longer do so.

FedUpwithJudaism

Let's see... a Zionist agit-prop group advocates stealing land and their PR agency steals identities.

I don't see the problem here.
