US Defends Israel

Even as Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was blasting the foreign policy of President Barack Obama, US Secretary of State John Kerry was defending the nation of Israel before the United Nations Human Rights Council. He charged the group continued to focus on human rights issues within Israel but ignored similar, if not worse, examples in other parts of the world. Ironically, just as Bibi was accusing the Obama administration of failing to support Israel, leaders of Palestinian groups were accusing the United States of failing to address human rights issues in Palestine because the Americans regard “Israel”as being above the law!”

For the record, the Dome that prevents missiles from hitting Israel was built with US technology and Money. So much for hating Israel.

Oh, former Israel President Shimon Peres said the actions of Netanyahu was the first time Israel leaders interfered into American politics

Israelis Respond To Netanyahu

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu represents the current government of Israel, but he does not represent what the entire population thinks regarding policy toward Iran. Isaac Herzog is an opposition leader who is offering the people of Israel an alternative approach to dealing with Iran that does not focus upon war. “There is no doubt the prime minister knows how to speak well, but the truth is that the speech, impressive as it was, did not prevent a nuclear Iran. The painful turn is that after all the applause, Netanyahu is alone and Israel is isolated.” Herzog’s comments along with those of other opposition leaders such as Tzipi Livni raise an issue that Israel must confront. At this moment in time, Israel lacks any friends in Europe, let alone other regions of the world. For example:

1. When Benjamin Netanyahu assumed office, Israel armed forces were holding joint military exercises withe Turkish army. Those days are over and Turkey opposes the government of Israel.

2. Israel relations with Jordan and Egypt are no longer close.

3. Not a single European government looks with approval at Israel and its policies, both domestic of foreign.

The Israel opposition wants to work with the US and European nations to bring peace to the Middle East.

Preview Of Bibi Speech

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will give a speech tonight. We offer our readers a preview of what he will say. At least fifty members of Congress will not hear this speech because they prefer to boycott than to listen to a FOREIGNER give advice to Americans about their foreign policy. In the entire history of this nation this represents the largest number of congressmen who deliberately boycotters a speech by a foreign dignitary. Anyway, here is what Bibi will say.

1. I am one tough dude.

2. Barack Obama is not one tough dude.

3. John Kerry, who was awarded medals for bravery in the Vietnam war, has caved into Iran demands in a cowardly manner.

4. No deal with Iran ensures peace.

5. Since Iran will not have been provided with an alternative to peaceful use of atomic energy, there remains only one alternative–bomb the hell out of Iran.

6. Since Israel lacks the type of bombs that could penetrate Iran’s defenses, we need American bombers to blast away.

7. Israel stands for peace and that is why Israel uses force to end problems.

8. First Iranian terrorists came for opponents to democracy, then they came for Jews in Iran, then they will come for Israel,and then they will come for Europe, and then they will come for the United States of America.

As I said, this is sone tough dude.

Bibi Joins Fellow Republicans To Save World!

I assume this week anyone who cares about Israel or the United States of America will be glued to their iPads or television sets in order to see still another Republican inform the world how to get peace in t he world. Bibi Netanyahu is here to further the work of his dad in the cause of ensuring that Republicans once again govern the nation. His father was a professor here in America who also doubled as a fervent Republican. The Israel Ambassador to the United States of America used to double as a paid Republican worker. Anyway, Bibi is here to expose American government attempts to avoid a calamity in the Middle East. Bibi will inform cheering Republicans that the only road to peace in the Middle East is to bomb the hell out of Iran. After all, Bibi is an expert on peace in the Middle East. Since becoming prime minister of Israel:

1. The former close ties between Israel and Turkey have ceased after fifty years of close cooperation.

2. Jordan used to support Israel in many situations and now has ended this support.

3. There is not a single European nation that supports the policies of Benjamin Netanyahu.

So, Americans, cheer Bibi and perhaps we can end any and all good relations with nations in this world.

Another Missouri Day

I spent forty years of my life working in the state of Missouri and many days were in rural areas of the state where I taught teachers. If there is one place I know well, it is southern Missouri where segregation was still around up into the 1970s. In places like Flat River, if your skin was black make certain it was not being shown after sundown, at least not in the town of Flat River. One day I was a visiting Jew in a school in Doniphan, I can guarantee they have never seen a Muslim. So, I was not surprised to read about a man in southern Missouri who shot to death eight people and then rid the world of his body. Guns are to southern folk in Missouri what money is to the rest of us. They so love the gun.

Of course, there are more murders in St. Louis, Missouri with its population of about 250,000 than in most major metropolitan areas of this nation. I have no idea why this man killed eight people. I also have an idea that such murders will occur again and again in this state which prefers living in the nineteenth century when blacks knew their place and Jews never ventured into these areas. They love guns, they love death as long as they can retain the right to hold a gun anywhere they desire.

Muslims Unite For Jews

There are groups in Israel and the United States which seek to portray the lives of Jews living in Europe is a fearful one. AICPAC and other members of the Jewish Lobby in America are producing films which claim that to be a Jew in a European country is to be in a similar situation that confronted Jews during the 1930s who were living in Germany, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urges European Jews to come to Israel and be safe. Of course, on the other hand, he frightens Israel Jews with dire stories of mass attacks from Iran that would destroy their country. A bit confusing. On one hand, Jews confront death in Europe and Jews confront death in Israel so come to Israel!

In the city of Oslo in Norway, about ONE THOUSAND MUSLIMS came together to take a stand against anti-semitism in their land. They wanted to make clear to the 1,000 Norwegian Jews that Muslims were their friends. They gathered around a synagogue making clear their views: “Humanity is Me, and We are hear to-we demonstrate that!” Muslims for Jews. I wonder if there are Muslims for Jews in Israel??

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

In coffee shop, I am the man with a pen, but not machine.

Few know what they know.

Shout for joy today, but what about tomorrow?

Some move hands to make a point.

We always depart from today to greet tomorrow.

Few religious figures are famous in modern America.

Nurses are unsung heroes of our lives.

All too many worship at altar of hate.

Illness makes one fatigued.

To be alone with your mind is to be in the company of wisdom.
