US Secretary of State John Kerry is arguing that Iran should not be invited to discussions concerning issues in the Middle East. The presence of this nation “would not be appropriate” because according to his reasoning, “Iran has been deeply involved with its forces on the ground in Syria.” How about?
1. The United States had forces on the ground in Afghanistan and Iraq.
2. European Union forces were on the ground in Afghanistan.
3. United Kingdom troops were on the ground in Iraq.
Iran’s presence is important if issues in the Middle East are to be resolved. Iran has close connections with Syria, with Hamas, and the situation in Lebanon. How about bringing together any and all nations in the Middle East who are concerned with creating stability?

There are all too many people in this world who believe that since the large majority of people who live in Israel are Jewish, this means all Jews in the world approve of policies carried out by the Israel government. In reality, a sizable number of Jewish Israelis do not agree with the polices of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. A rally was held over the weekend in Israel to demonstrate opposition to the rampant anti-Semitism which is spreading across Europe. From Russia to the shores of England one can find examples of groups who believe all problems in this world are the result of actions by Israel,and somehow, all Jews in the world are part of some vast conspiracy of plots and violence.
I have been hearing these1 stories since childhood during World War II. Identify a problem, discover a Jewish name somehow connected to this problem, and Voila, blame it one the Jew. German Chancellor Angela Merkel made clear that the idea that somehow German people are under some form of threat to their existence because of Israel “is an outrageous scandal that we cannot accept.” Frankly, there are plenty of groups in Europe and the Middle East bent on proving that Jews lie behind anything and everything that goes wrong in the world.
Adolf, your ideas live on
There is no question that Adrien Peterson is an outstanding back in the National Football League. His performance with Minnesota has placed him among the best running backs in football. Now, as to his performance as a father, there is no question that he should be running from that role, quickly. His four year old boy pushed his five year old brother off his bike. As far as we know, the five year old is still alive and in good health. But, dad was very upset. After all, how many four year old boys push someone? How many four year old boys push their older brother? Gee, I was once a four year old boy who had a five year old older brother, and my first memory of life is hitting him over the head with my shovel! I adored my older brother, but at age four, logical thinking was just beginning.
Adrien Peterson decided to teach his four year old boy a lesson. He found a branch from a tree, and proceeded to beat the hell out of the boy. He struck him on legs, back, buttocks and scrotum. The boy wound up bloody. Adrien insists this form of punishment is what his folks did to him, so why not do it to his son? Idiot, your parents taught violence, now you are teaching violence, and, perhaps, your son will grow up to be another Ray Rice who punches out his girl friend.
How about a few lashes on the back, buttocks and scrotum of the beater. He can then recall the good old days of youth?
