Top Places To See In Life

As a boy I would often sit on Coney Island gazing out to sea wishing that some day I would cross it to see the origin of my parents. Many of us had some places we wanted to see in our lives.

1. Rocky Mountains at dawn.

2. Sailing into New York harbor to see the Old Lady with arm outstretched.

3. Walking the banks of the Seine.

4. Watching dawn beak in San Francisco.

5. Walking the streets of London.

6. The Grand Canyon.

7. The Pyramids of Egypt.

8. Just being in Rome.

10. Kissing the ground of Israel.

So, what are the places you desire to see or experience?

Why Do Muslims Go Off On Jihad?

Most people in the West are confused as to why young, frequently educated men and women give up their life in the West and head off to do the jihad dance. So, why engage in such dangerous activities?

1. The main attraction for people in the West is –how much money can I make?The modern heroes are this with huge wealth. Sorry, this is not exactly what Jesus believed.How can any intelligent Christian take pride in the embrace of wealth as the emblem of success.

2. Young people are seeking heroes. Just examine the 17 seeking the Republican nomination, not a single one is a hero. The same applies to young Muslims, is there a single Imam who stands out as a leader of peace?

3. The West has been transformed into a playground for the wealthy. How can a young person feel a sense of pride when told those who lack money are inferior humans?

4. There is simply no version of modern Islam that attracts a high percent of Muslims. What exactly does modern Islam offer the young?

5. All too many young Muslims believe they are trapped in a world that glorifies “things” rather than human values.

Put it this way, most Muslim terrorists are simply an Arab version of Donald Trump–hot and cliches to solve problems!

World Terrorist Cup

The entire world and most Muslims are getting tired of the chaos in the Middle East,Somalia, Libya and Nigeria. It is time to organize an all-Muslim World Cup on who is the best terrorist. Of course, participants would agree that the group which comes out on top, would become the acknowledged top dog in terrorism. Oops, I forgot that Muslims do not like dogs. How about the top guerrilla?

1. Naturally, there would be shooting contests. Of course, one team against the other team.Last man standing, wins.

2. We could have a contest in which teams compete in rocket firing.

3. How about which team that first destroys a city?

4. Of course a main feature would be which group can produce the most suicide bombers.

5. The finale would be which team that most quickly destroys itself!

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


I so long for an idea about Iran from Republicans, any idea would do.

We need a return of the DRAFT so Republicans can have their sons or grandsons sent off to battle.

My dream is seeing Donald Trump in a uniform leading men into battle.

For some reason, “President” Netanyahu is not allowed to conduct US foreign policy.

Oppose the nutty ideas of Netanyahu and one becomes an anti-Semite.

If Netanyahu can conduct our foreign policy can Obama run Israel’s domestic policy?

Oh for an entire day without a gun death!

Wither Egypt?

The media discusses problems in Iraq or Syria or the ever present Iran, but few are interested in Egypt. Since the dawn of the Arab Spring there has been great hope that Egypt could step up to the plate and become a leader of secular Muslims who will reduce the power of Islamic terrorism. General Sisi replaced General Mubarak who had for the moment been replaced by Mr. Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood, and of course Mubarak had replaced General Sadat who had replaced General Nasser. Lost in this endless shuffle of strong men has been the arrival of a single non-strong man who could focus upon developing an economy and providing jobs for the population.

General Sisi has handled the presence of the Muslim Brotherhood by arresting thousands and placing thousands on trial in order to get the court to rule they should all be executed, including the inept former President Morsi. The end result has been growing development of terrorism which can draw upon the presence of millions of unemployed men who just want to do something today. Yesterday, the newly arrived ISIS folks shot a missile that blew up a navy vessel. Neither ISIS nor the Muslim Brotherhood will be defeated by guns. How about trying some jobs?

Oh The Glory Of God!

These days the easiest way to explain away any act of murder is simply to say: “This is for the glory of God!” ISIS just blew up a parked car in front of the Italian consulate in Cairo for the glory of God. ISIS blows up statues that have been around for a few thousand years for the glory of God. People get their heads chopped off for the glory of God. Kill a few kids today who happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and simply note this was for the glory of God.

I guess in the future when someone desires to rob a bank, all they have to shout at the teller, “this is for the glory of God, not for me.” I assume this means God has run out of cash and needs it right now. I wonder if God goes around blowing up planets for the glory of God??

General Sisi Continues Being General Sisi

General Abdel Fatah Sisi is among America’s loyal allies in the Middle East and a man devoted to the proposition that by using FORCE he will end any and all problems in Egypt. His response to Islamic fanaticism is to be a fanatic. He has done nothing to create economic growth in Egypt, he has done nothing to win over youth who led the Arab Spring in hope that a new government will come to power that was committed to democracy and development of an economy that produces jobs.

His approach to democracy was to sentence over a hundred members of the Muslim Brotherhood to death for their crimes. There is no doubt that former President Morsi ranks among the most incompetent leaders in Egyptian history. This man endeavored to impose rigid Muslim doctrine upon a population that was mainly secular in their religion, plus five million were members of the Coptic Christian religion. General Sisi will not budge from imposing death sentences upon hundreds of people who were convicted in something that might resemble justice, but hardly was.

Death will not lead to peace in Egypt. Murdering people only increases the probability of further violence as civil war now appears on the horizon.

AIPAC Strikes Again

In 1967, Israel armed forces launched a surprise attack upon several Arab nations including Jordan and Egypt. Historians even today argue as to whether or not there was a real threat of an attack by Egypt upon Israel. It is doubtful if we ever will know the real story regarding a possible secret attack by Egyptian forces. But, we do know that when Israel captured what is known as the “West Bank”(then part of Jordan) it was assuming control of a Palestine area the UN in 1948 assigned to Palestinians. Israel “supporters” and personally doubt if these people actually support an Israel goal of living at peace with Arab nations, insist the Israel government has a right to occupy and posses the West Bank. I gather that God assigned this piece of Earth to Jews.

Republicans and Democrats in Congress added an item to a trade bill with Europe which requires American officials to lobby Europeans to end boycotts of Israel goods from the West Bank. Talk about intruding in the affairs of other sovereign nations! President Obama justifiably was critical of this blatant attack upon the right of European nations to make foreign policy decisions. Some Israelis insist that God is on their side, just as the Ted Cruz crowd believe God is on THEIR side.

We do know that God is really on the side of Donald Trump.
