Sabramania with new Sabra vs Hulk fan art & plenty of antisemitic cry babies on social media


So first I want to open up this posting by praising the efforts of Greek artist Kapandais Nikolaos who recently did this ass kicking Sabra vs Hulk fan art. Now the timing of this fan art is no coincidence given all the tirades of various antisemites on social media have been on ever since Marvel announced Sabra's inclusion into the Marvel Cinematic Universe almost weeks ago. 

Unfortunately, her live action debut won't be for quite sometime given that Captain America New World Order won't be coming out till 2024. But in the mean time there's a lot of questions and speculation about how this is all going to work out. Shira Hass is a fine actress but I think even among Sabra fans she probably wasn't the first actress to some to mind when it comes to a live action big screen Sabra. And then ofcourse there's the question of Marvel's re-imagining of the character. But for me there's a more over reaching question. Will Marvel go forward with their plans for a Sabra live action appearance or will they end up caving to what will almost certainly be in the coming months a relentless BDS pressure campaign by antisemites? Time will tell.

The following clip art you see there is actually from Incredible HULK 255, and as you can also see it's a direct prelude to issue 256 which ofcourse is Sabra's first Marvel Comics appearance. Issue 256 has come under a lot of scrutiny in recent weeks and despite having had the issue in my collection for many years now it only recently occurred to me to have a peek at issue 255 and I'm glad I did. You see where it says . . "In the nation known as Israel" at the bottom of that top center panel?
You may notice the name “Palestine” is no where to be found here and the same is the case for the following issue which takes place in Israel. In fact, I’ve read almost everything from Marvel and DC Comics over the years having to do with all things Jewish and Israel and I’ve never seen the name “Palestine” in print anywhere. Comic book writers earn a living by telling stories that are fictional with mostly characters who are also fictional. But despite this, it would seem that comic book writers are more in touch with reality then today’s leftist antisemites. Incredible Hulk 255 and 256 were written by Bill Mantlo and penciled by Sal Buscema, but the Sabra character was actually created by Belinda Glass.
 
On a couple of interesting side notes, both Marvel and DC Comics have had Israeli characters in their stories for decades now. But did you know that DC actually had an Israeli Arab character? Taleb Beni Khalid was the Black King in Checkmate which was basically the DC version of Marvel's S.H.E.I.L.D. Khaild was a regular character in Checkmate's volume 2 series (2006) and made numerous appearances in other DC titles through out the 2000s prior to the DC reboot.
 
Also, did you know Incredible HULK 256 in recent weeks has dramatically increased in value? Before all the Sabra MCU drama from the cry baby antisemites on social media you could pick up a copy in fair condition on ebay for around $10. Now the price range goes any where from $50 to $200! Some of the sellers have included a little Israeli flag icon I think that's a nice touch.

Olympia has Fallen

Olympia, capital of the state of Washington and home to Evergreen college where apparently you get to make up your very own major and where they don't use a standard letter grading system. It's also from where rachel corrie is from. You remember her right? She was the anti-Israel "social justice warrior" who found out the hard way why it's a really a bad idea for unauthorized personnel (like her) to enter sites where heavy construction vehicles are being operated. In other words folks, do not do that.

What you see in the background there is a portion of what's known to locals as the Olympia Rafah Solidarity Mural Project. In actuality however, it's a wall of anti-Israel hamas terror pandering hyper progressive BDS propaganda of intersectionality. But it did at least make for a great photo opportunity for me during this latest trip to this otherwise great state.
 All that aside, this is my first and last time to Olympia. I think it's only a matter of time before some movie studio decides to shoot the next zombie apocalypse film around here, it just has that kinda feel. Don't believe me? Have a look at this walking tour video from just earlier this year by a local who's doing his best to put a positive spin on the bleak cityscape of Olympia's decrepit downtown area . . .

And by the way, earlier this month back in The SF Bay Area we had some anti-Israel clowns playing let's make believe we're tech workers protesting Israel. Yeah let's give billions of US tax payer dollars to the people who celebrated on 911 instead of to our allies in Ukraine who are resisting a vile anti-Western and anti-Democracy russian despot who has close ties to iran and syria. If that happened, you can bet at least some of that money would find it's way into hamas and islamic jihad's hands and probably even into the palestinian authority's pay for slay slush fund. This protest probably has something to do with Israel recently an anniversary of sorts since the beginnings of it's high tech success story which started with IBM opening up a facility in Haifa exactly 50 years ago this month.

Israel Day Parade New York City 2022

Just watching the Israel Day Parade on The Jewish Broadcasting Service channel today after the 2 year covid hiatus. Agonizing because I have to watch this from The West Coast instead of being there in person but I still find it to be a heart warming experience. But then I saw this Lamborghini and I was like damn, I really wish I was there more then ever right now.

And back here in The San Francisco Bay Area, although not quite the same kind of sweet ride as a Zionist Lamborghini ZIM you can still see ZIM on the move every day around here.

 This photo of San Francisco City Hall is from earlier this month. Not the first time the city has honored Israel's birthday in this fashion but this photo is the best I've seen in years.

About an hour and a half from The San Francisco is Sacramento, the state capitol. Now maybe you knew already that Ashkelon Israel is a sister city of Sacramento. But did you also know that back in 2012 BDSholes from the Sacramento area attempted to appeal to the city counsel to not partner with Ashkelon over the usual anti-Israel bullshit reasons? Guess how that worked out?

ZIM makes brief appearance on Bay Area KPIX Channel 5 news

 

I was watching the local news this morning when I happened to spot this ZIM cargo container during a story about The Port of Oakland. I can only hope that maybe some local BDSholes may have happened to have seen it to.

By the way, look what I found in Monterey (south just outside The SF Bay Area) this weekend.

March 12 Update:  So yesterday I finally got a chance to use my Israel plate I purchased in Monterey as something more then a display item at home. Every Friday afternoon there is a dueling protest at The University of berkeley that I had an opportunity for a change to take part in. As you can see, with the putin's invasion of Ukraine into it's 3rd week leftist anti-semites like marina gutierrez have already hijacked the crisis for their own agenda despite there being zero parallels. Prior to the invasion, I don't recall Ukraine firing rockets into russia, trying to infiltrate russian territory through terror tunnels or even threatening russia's very existence....do you? 

Last week I spotted this electronic billboard off of highway 580 between Castro Valley and Dublin (San Francisco Bay Area).

Discover Israel at a Total Wine near you

I've seen Israeli wines on store shelves before here in California. Most notably at Trader Joes which has been a favorite target of a failing BDS campaign for years now. But I must admit, this display spotted at a Bay Area Total Wine store is certainly a step up from merely bottles on a shelf. By the way, notice how the display diagram includes The Golan Heights?

Smooth ride for ZIM on the Puget Sound waters

Rarely do I post about anything having to do with Israel on this blog if it's not specific to The San Francisco Bay Area. But this photo would be one of those rare times. I love Seattle, I love Israel and I love BDS fails. So ofcourse I love this photo of a ZIM cargo freighter cruising the waters of The Puget Sound with the Seattle's iconic Space Needle in the back ground.

Getting back to the San Francisco Bay Area, I've been seeing these "ZIMonitor" cargo containers on the highway for the first time in past coupe weeks now. After a quick Google search I learned that these are special temperature controlled cargo containers that customers can monitor adjust remotely. How cool is that!? Learn more about ZIMonitor and The Z Factor which is another top of the line ZIM cargo container model rolled out for 2021 that can also be seen on Bay Area highways in recent weeks . . .

All that new ZIM transportation tech aside, you can still find plenty of the more older model containers on Bay Area roads.

Pro Israel demonstration on Berkeley bridge elicits strong response

For many year now this pedestrian bridge over highway 80 in Berkeley has been a favorite site for various left wing movements to "advertise" their agendas and ideology. Now, some of them have been ok with me and then ofcourse there's the really crazy shit I've seen over the years like in the case of 911 conspiracy signage. Well lately it's been all this anti-Israel/pro-palestinian up there which certainly didn't come as a shock to any of us. But this weekend we thought it might be nice for a change of scenery. 

We got quite a boisterous public reaction for the entire hour we were there. The video link below is a sample of that

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4LyLRtEn_g

 

On something of a side note here when it comes to all things SF Bay Area highways. Despite all the anti-Israel agitation around here this week including at the Port of Oakland apparently you can still find ZIM cargo containers being trucked on any given day. BDS fail, boo hoo : (

 

May 24th Update: I don't know if the BDSholes who put these signs up at the Strobridge pedestrian overpass bridge in Castro Valley were expecting to get them back or not. Well, I guess it doesn't matter any more at this point because that shit is mine now.
