So, What Is Israel Policy In Middle East?

There is nothing more fruitless than seeking to discuss Israel policies toward Palestinians or in the Middle East with American Jews who are convinced any and all problems confronting the nation of Israel are the fault of Muslims who refuse to compromise and attain the end to conflict. The prevailing view of AIPAC is that Israel is blameless,and any and all problems stem from Muslims who hate Jews. I find ironic that Israel has no problem with Germany, whose former rulers murdered six million Jews, but are convinced that Palestinian leaders who never engaged in mass slaughter of Jews have hearts filled with hatred and will not end their war against defenseless Israel.

The bottom line is a simple question: what is Israel policy during the coming five years or the coming ten years toward Palestinians? At present, the only policy is to gradually gain control against Palestinians by seizing their lands. I apologize for this remark. Israel is a small nation surrounded by untold millions of Muslims whose only thought is about destroying Israel. Of course, the ONLY nation in the Middle East, along with Iran, which refuses to allow UN inspectors into nuclear facilities is–Israel. The ONLY nation which has atomic bombs is -Israel. The bottom line is that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lacks any foreign policy that deals with the major need for Israel-peace with all its neighbors and economic cooperation. I do realize in writing these words I am considered to be a “Jew hating Jew.”

Oh, Israel just beat out an American offer to India, and will be selling that nation 8,000 Spike missiles and 800 launchers. Gee, I wonder if Republicans will say anything about this sale which destroyed hundreds of jobs for Americans? When is is a choice between American jobs and campaign contributions, guess which wins out?

Putin Speaks, So Listen!!

Vlaimir Putin has spoken and I trust that Americans will listen to a man with an iron heart who does not fear any animal, let alone any human. There are unconfirmed reports he just came back from wrestling a bear and sending him flying away in fear. So, the Great Leader decided to offer some of his wise words both to the people of Russia and America. He wants the world to know that: “I don’t think the United States poses a threat to Russia.” Wow, now I can sleep peacefully knowing the most powerful man in the world does not expect to go to war against America! However, the All Wise one has some words of advice to the American people about Barack Obama: “I think the policies of the ruling elite(in America) are erroneous. I think they go against our(Russian) interests, and undermine trust in the United States.”

I think we Americans should pay attention to this man of the truth. If only he was in the White House, every Muslim terrorist would tremble in fear. Imagine the head of ISIS being challenged to a duel at high noon with the Black Belt leader of Russia! If only we had a Rambo in the White House instead of a guy who plays golf! How about asking Putin to come to America and become our leader? OK, so you gays might be a bit worried, but which is more important, disturbing gays or ending fear of terrorists??

Then again, this blog would end if Putin was in charge.

Another Shooting In Another School

The history of school shooting in the United States of America usually follows the same pattern:

1. The shooting occurs in a suburban area or a small town.

2. The shooter is from the middle class.

3. The shooter has been allowed by parents and society to play with guns.

4. The shooter is a Christian.

5. The shooting NEVER takes place in an urban school setting.

6. The shooter is a white male.

7. The NRA will insist the shooter would have been halted if only each student has been provided with a weapon.

Jalyen Fryburg meets six of these seven criteria. He was a black male. He also fails to meet the usual requirement of being lonely. Jaylen was a happy young boy who was popular. However, he entered the cafeteria at Maryville Pilchuck HS in Maryville, Washington, and proceeded to blast away. There are reports he was angry about racist comments and refusal of a girl to go out with him. The bottom line is that this nation loves guns and allows anyone to have access to them. Pray tell why such shooting do not occur in European nations?

Forget About The Iraq Army

Every so often I realize that over a decade has passed since the trio of George, Dick, and Don sent our men and women into Iraq to bring democracy to the backward people of that region. I recall the days when Americans were promised by President Bush that he was fully in charge of what was being done to ensure that Iraq had a modern government and that Iraqis would become a leading democratic government. Oh, and along the way of this task being accomplished evil doers such as al-Qaida would be destroyed. That was then, today is now. It is so easy to blame Barack Obama for every problem in the Middle East when, in reality, he inherited a mess, and simply lacked the ability to transform disaster into some form of success. What is most amazing about this story is American failure to grasp some basic concepts regarding the situation in Iraq.

1. Iraq is composed of tribes. These tribal groups are centered in religion. About 30% are Sunnis and the remainder are Shiite.

2. Urban Iraqis have a much higher percent of people educated in modern school systems, but they still are centered in religion.

3. Saddam Hussein destroyed leaders who might have led the nation.

4. Americans imposed leaders who never were leaders.

Reality check: The current Iraq army lacks faith in its purpose. It has been led by kleptomaniacs whose only desire was to make money. Iraq army officers never trained soldiers, let alone inspired them to fight. It will take months, hopefully, to equip and inspire an Iraq army to fight.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

If ignorance was a virtue, Ted Cruz would be a saint in heaven.

I found a weather beaten dime. I wonder what is its story?

When my wife and I enter a car dealer establishment the salesman always comes to me. I make clear she makes car decisions.

If Barack Obama is on the “left,” then who is in the center?

I have a hard time handling a tall attractive woman holding open the door for me.

I wonder who made the decision that prices change on Wednesday?

Mystery of life: who or what decides our gas prices?

Given obesity and lap tops, we need larger tables in coffee shops.

Wonderful, I made fifteen green lights before hitting a red one!

Four tall women entered the coffee shop within a ten minute time period. Were they trying to tell shorty something?

No Surprises In Israel

It was simply a matter of time before some Palestinian did something that resulted in the death of an innocent Jewish Israeli(twenty percent of people in Israel are NOT Jewish). A Palestinian man drove his car into some pedestrians and a baby died. In an east Jerusalem neighborhood, Palestinians threw rocks at Jews who had moved into the area. Naturally, most Jewish organizations in America will cite these examples of death and hate as evidence that it is impossible for Jews to ever trust Muslims. On the other hand, these same people will insist that Muslims can always trust Jews. The bottom line is that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lacks a foreign policy that would lead to permanent peace between Israelis and Palestinians. The current Israel foreign policy is based upon the concept of CONTROL. Just keep Palestinians under control and all problems disappear. Just tell Israelis that no Palestinians can ever be trusted and life will go on in peace.

This is the foreign policy of denial. Reality: those areas under control of the Palestinian Authority have NOT been areas in which violence against Jews occur. Instead of extending the power of strength of the Palestinian Authority, PM Netanyahu wants to weaken it. Reality check: A sensible peace based upon compromise IS possible.

1. Halt further West Bank settlements.

2. Halt further settlements in East Jerusalem.

3. Transform control of the West Bank to the Palestinian Authority.

4. Develop economic programs between Israel and Palestinians.

These steps would move the process forward of peace.

Republican Strategy-Deny Voting!

The history of America contained the story of a never ceasing fight to empower people with the right to vote. It was not only women who were denied the right to vote, but millions of white men, and black men and women. In our history books we teach children that by 1920 all Americans over the age of 21 had the right to vote, and eventually all Americans over the age of 18 had that right. Fast forward to the 21st century, and now the right to vote is being denied millions. Our Conservative controlled Supreme Court has done all in its power to deny voting rights on grounds there is no threat to voting in states of this nation. Please explain how supposedly intelligent men(not a female on the Supreme Court believes this nonsense) ignore state laws that restrict voting to people? The current strategy of Republicans is to deny the right to vote by demanding IDs of voters. For over two hundred years we voted in America without any ID required. The ID requirement has nothing to do with voting, but it has a great deal to do with NOT voting!

In Florida, about 11 million will vote. About one million of those who should be voting will not vote because Republicans changed the law to deny the right to vote by anyone who has a felony in their record. One can be a businessman who tricks people into losing their money and still vote. But, get drunk and you lose that right. Where is the anger among those on Social media about this denial of the right to vote??

Why Do Men And Women Die For Islam?

Michael Zehaf-Bibeau is dead. He is a man who somehow embraced the ideology of terrorism and proceeded to carry out deadly attacks in Canada, the land in which he was born. Michael parked his car near Parliament buildings and shot a guard, and then, somehow got past other armed guards and was headed for the building containing dozens of members of Parliament. Fortunately, Sgt. Kevin Vickers took out his gun and shot the killer. There are many unanswered questions about this incident.

1. How can a man with a weapon in his hand walk up to a government building that is guarded by soldiers?

2. Heck, another man jumped over the White House fence before being caught.

The real issue is what is causing so many thousands of young Muslims to embrace an ideology based upon the concept of hate? What draws these individuals to abandon values they were taught as children, and seek to die for a philosophy centered in violence? Why do those opposing groups such as ISIS lack a fighting spirit? The Iraq Army had over 200,000 men who proceeded to flee for their lives when confronted by 20,000 men? There is something lacking among modern Muslims, particularly among its leaders. There is failure to offer ideas that youth deem so important as to be willing to fight for them. Ironically, a similar feeling is found among modern youth in Western societies, and, most probably among those in nations such as China, Japan or India. The 21st century offers an unlimited access to people, but it does not offer a sense that one is prepared to fight for ideas. In America, we are frightened of immigrants from Mexico, we are terrified about a non issue such as Ebola, and we definitely are worried about doing anything that might impact the wealth of our wealthy citizens.

The bottom line is both in Islamic and non-Islamic societies there is not philosophical goal that is valued as central to the lives of people. We exist, but we do not believe in anything other than our daily life activities. How many Americans are prepared to give up their lives for ???

Hunt For Red October

There is a mysterious ship somewhere off the coast of Sweden. It is sometimes seen, and then again, it is sometimes not seen. The government of Sweden worries who or what is in this ship. Naturally, this blog will clear up the secret of the infamous ship that is somewhere in the waters off the coast of Sweden. We offer some possibilities, based on our extensive knowledge of the waters in the vicinity of Sweden.

1. It contains a boat load of illegal immigrants from Mexico who got turned around once they encountered the Texas National Guard.

2. It is filled with refugees from West Africa seeking to bring Ebola to some northern clime and end its deadly attacks.

3. It is led by Vladimir Putin seeking to conquer Sweden and extend his rule over a greater area of the planet.

4. It contains a lost crew from the former Soviet Union who will not give up the fight for communism.

Question: What exactly can this ship do to worry anyone in Sweden?

Obama Careless Kills Democrats

I am among the millions of Americans who voted for Barack Obama, and, most probably am among the millions in that group who feel great disappointment with our choice. Let me make clear, there was no doubt that Obama was the better choice than McCain or Romney. The central issue is why did Barack Obama become so inept as a leader.

1. Barack Obama never understood that a President IS a political leader. He must organize conflicting forces into a political alliance. Politics is Not a dirty thing, it is inherent in a federal republic that encompasses a huge area of land and contains conflicting groups.

2. Barack Obama never challenged Americans to be better than they are. He never offered anything to youth who had supported his campaign in 2008. Where was the challenge to young Americans? Franklin Roosevelt provided youth one opportunity after another to change America while John Kennedy said, ask not what the government can do for you, but what can you do for American society?

3. Barack Obama never grasped that in an economic crisis there are TWO key issues: JOBS and solving banking problems. Instead, he focused on placating Wall Street bankers and tied up Congress in a health care bill. Health care was the issue for year two, not one. If I lack a job, my health is not on my mind, working and earning money are my chief priorities. FDR challenged the wealthy by saying, “I welcome your hatred.” How many wall Street bankers wound up in jail? Not a single one!

4. Barack Obama refused to hold weekly press conferences and thus continually communicate with the American people. FDR and JFK used the press to get out their message, Obama did not feel comfortable being questioned. Hell, submitting yourself to Americans for questions is the essence of leadership!

5. In the end, President Obama did not surround himself with powerful people. There was no one who would tell him that his policies were wrong. The entire Ebola episode smells of ineptness. Why in God’s name did he appoint a politician to head the effort, every American wanted a doctor in charge!
