Let us get a few facts clear when discussing the nation of Israel. It contains about eight million Jews in an area of the world which contains nearly two hundred million Muslims and about forty million Christians. I admit the Israel air force is the best in the region and the Israel army is certainly the best. Of course, the American army was the best in the world and has yet to be able to defeat guerrilla style forces in the region. Members of the Democratic party in the USA contacted the Israel prime minister and urged that he meet with them during his trip to the United States in order to discuss with Republicans why they are right to hate a president who was twice elected by the American people. Senator Richard Durbin and Senator Diane Feinstein asked the Israel leader to meet with Democratic senators.
Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu responded that he could not in order not to “compound the misperception of partisanship. So, the Israel leader does not wish to be perceived as favoring one party over the other. I assume that is why the Israel ambassador to the United States of America secretly met with Republican congressmen to plan this trip!
So, Israelis, why did you elect this man to lead your country. Do you people have an appointment with disaster?

We offer observations on the human condition from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.
NOBODY ASKED ME BUT
There is a fatigue of body and a fatigue of mind.
To be alone with mind, is to be alone with knowledge.
Women always sit first, why?

The war in Iraq continues and people are dying. NO, there is not another beheading by ISIS, no, terrorists are not killing the innocent. No, American planes are not bombing terrorists. It is simply a continuation of a war that has gone on for over a decade. A Sunni elder, Sheikh Qasim al Janabi was driving in a convoy with members of his tribe when they were halted at a checkpoint in Baghdad. One would assume that being halted within the city limits of the capital of this fair land would not pose a danger to life or limb. This sheik was an important leader of Sunnis and has been working to reduce tensions and gather support of the war against ISIS. So, what led to his death and those of members of his family?
His convoy was halted by members of Shiite militia whose concept of fighting ISIS is to murder Sunnis who seek to murder members of ISIS. A voice of moderation is dead. We can expect some form of retaliation for these murders. Prime Minister Haider al Abadi IS trying to end the madness of killing and killing of Sunnis by Shiites. NO, Iraq does not need more American planes. But, it does need common sense and respect for one another if the fight against ISIS is to become a victory.
