HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.

Canada,Toronto Star: “Chaos In Yemen”

Sorry, yesterday’s news.

Japan, Japan Times: “Bad Boys Back In Town”

I wouldn’t mind the bad boys, it is the ignorant who bother me.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “You Will Remember His Name””

It’s Ted Cruz and he will make certain you remember his name.

France, Connexion: “Nuns Take To The Road”

I assume it is the road that leads higher and higher.

Norway, Norway Post: “Kids Weak On Drawing Conclusions”

Heck, we have a Congress of alleged adults who can not even conclude how to pass a law!

We Are Surrounded!

The election in Israel is over and Bibi Netanyahu is still the prime minister. There is one thing that is certain in life, leaders of Israel will shout to the rooftops that there nation is surrounded and therefore it is imperative to take the first step in defense by attacking Gaza. IN 2013 this Muslim entity was invaded by Israel causing the death of 39 and the wounding of 3,964. In 2014 Gaza was invaded which resulted in the death of 2,314 and the wounding of 17,124. As you will recall this invasion originated because some Muslim men murdered three innocent Jewish boys. It only stands to reason and fairness that if three Jews are murdered, then 2,000 Muslims must be killed including 1600 innocent men, women and children. I usually get many Jews upset because of my refusal to buy into the chant that innocent Israel is surrounded by Arab states that only seek to kill each and every Jew in that land. Examine the record:

Egypt has not fought a war in nearly forty years and its army lacks the capability to challenge the IDF.

Jordan can hardly keep under control its minority which is composed of Palestinians.

Lebanon lacks any armed force although it does have Hamas and thousands of missiles. An attack on Israel would unleash the full force of the IDF.

Saudi Arabia has never fought a war against any major power.

Syria?

Iraq?

Israel has 80 atomic bombs including submarines that can fire nuclear weapons.

What was that again about being “surrounded?”

Mystery Of Death

The ultimate mystery of life is death. We know that the end of our journey in life must always conclude in the end of life. I, like millions, can not shake loose of the story about how Andreas Lubitz ended his journey along with the journeys of dozens of others when he shut the door of his cockpit to the Captain and quietly and silently headed the plane downwards to a murderous conclusion. We are now discovering that this man had emotional problems, and hid them from his superiors. He never revealed anything about who he was, he hid from others feelings of depression and illness, and simply went about his business of death. We now know that a doctor informed him that he was “unfit to work.”

I confess that this story haunts me. The death of 150 people without any warning, the end of life for little children is simply among the most horrible tales ever told. German authorities will be making some changes in the manner of who flies a plane. From now on there will always be two pilots together. OK, a little more money will be spent. At age 84 I am never surprised on how we humans can kill. It would be so wonderful if we could focus on life and cherish each moment of avoiding Death!

Oh, Them Jewish Boys!

Growing up in about seventy years ago, it was quite common among Christians to make comments about how Jewish men were cheap and always watched the dollar. We Jewish men were the sort of guy who would watch every dollar when out on a date. I thought those days of associating Jews with cheapness were gone. Alas, I did not know about author Lena Dunham and her experiences with Jews. Heck, not only does she date a Jewish guy, but he is even one of her best friends. She developed a quiz about Jews and it was published in the New Yorker magazine. She wants the world to know that Jewish guys do not tip when paying the bill. I assume from her comments that Jewish guys DO pay the bill, but check very carefully what goes to the waiter.

OK, we are in the year 2015, but we are still in the year when Jews were a bunch of men who did not allow their money to get into the wrong hands. OH, Ms. Dunham does date a Jewish guy. I assume she pays for dinner and she certainly gives more than 5% as a tip. Who the heck is this woman? My question: why the heck do you date a guy who is never opens his wallet when out on a date with you?

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

I long for the time when I know who are the good guys in life.

A modern miracle is when a bill is passed through Congress.

I wonder if there is a Tea Party in Heaven?

Ted Cruz is living proof that one should not send your child to an Ivy League institution.

Your local junior college can do a better job of education than Ivy League professors who passed Ted Cruz in their classes.

Say, whatever happened to Bill Clinton? Is he still around?

I wonder if Hillary was a man whether women would vote for him?

Once More Into Gaza?

For over two decades American foreign policy has been based upon the foreign policy of Israel when it comes to analyzing the situation in the Middle East. Heck, liberals like Bill Maher buy into the Israel claim they are surrounded by evil forces, and the center of this evil coalition is based in Gaza. This small piece of land has repeatedly been invaded by Israel forces and thousands of people have been murdered, oops, let me be politically correct, killed. In the last invasion fewer than 80 Israelis died, and about 2,200 people in Gaza died. Yes, there are PEOPLE in Gaza. A major problem in Gaza is that its Hamas leaders lack any sense of reality about how to proceed upon the road to peace. They continue buying into the Israel claim that Hamas has the resources to fight against Israel.

The Hamas Qassam Brigade, the Islamic Palestinian Jihad and other such groups are getting ready to send some more missiles into Israel and thus enable Israel to send in its air force and army so that another 2000 innocent people can be killed. Oh, they are building tunnels. Here is the reality:

The combined forces of Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Hamas, do NOT threaten Israel. In the first place, neither of these “armies” have the slightest desire to fight against Israel. Oh, Israel has EIGHTY ATOMIC BOMBS!

It is time for Hamas to confront reality — they will not defeat Israel. It is time for Israel to confront reality –they are not surrounded by evil forces seeking its destruction!

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.

Denmark, Copenhagen Press: “Hijack Our Future”

We do know who are the hijackers in America, they belong to the Republican party.

France, Connexion: “Be Tough, Smack Kids”

Be wise, never raise a hand against a child.

Canada, Toronto Star: “This Is A Good Steak”‘

I’ll stake my reputation on this comment.

Egypt, al-Ahram: “Anti Boko Haram Force”‘

Guys, let’s not go bonkers on this one.

Sweden, Local: “Eternal Kid”

My dream at age 84

Mr, Dermer, It’s Time To Depart

There are common rules that all diplomats who have been assigned as ambassadors to foreign nations are expected to respect. They must always remember the post of ambassador demands that the individual stay out of the internal politics of the host nation. The Israel Ambassador to the United States of America, Mr.Ron Dermer, has for years been a friend of Republicans and does not like the Democratic Party of America. There is no problem with an ambassador having opinions, but he is a guest and thus if he breaks rules of the diplomatic trade can be sent packing and returned to his native land. Ron Dermer broke every single rule of the role of ambassador. An ambassador is allowed to talk with members of the opposition party in a nation. But, the ambassador is NOT allowed to negotiate with these people about foreign policy.

If Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is really sorry for his remarks he will immediately recall his ambassador to the United States and dispatch someone who minds his own business and stays out of American politics. This would signal a sign that Bibi intends to behave and seek to work with American leaders. Sorry Bibi, but neither you nor your ambassador are American citizens and you are guests in our land!

Outside Tikrit

As a child I learned the story of the Alamo when a handful of brave Americans held off the large Mexican army for several days before being overwhelmed and killed. Today, outside the city of Tikrit in northern Iraq there area about 1,000 members of ISIS hold up inside the city and ready to die for their cause, just as did the Americans at the Alamo. Apparently, there are over 25,000 soldiers in the Iraq army and nmow they have an opportunity to defeat 1,000 of the bad guys. During the initial stage of this battle, the good guys did advance and now they have cornered the bad guys. Apparently, the good guys appear stalled and they are hesitating about banging away into the main city. Reports indicate the bad guys are ready to die and are begging the good guys to come get them.

This story is repeated time after time. Bad guys ready to die, and good guys ready to hold off from being brave. There is no question that bad guys in the Middle East BELIEVE in their cause. They are ready to go to heaven or wherever good guys posing as bad guys wind up. Iraqi forces have now summoned the US air force to blast away. There is no question they will send thousands of missiles and bombs into Tikrit. The real question is why do the good guys lack determination in this struggle. It is clear that until members of the Iraq army come to believe in their cause, such hesitation will continue. Who knows, perhaps in this case the guys inside the Alamo will survive!

Jesus Story Today

Christian fundamentalists insist the Jesus Christ will one day return to take everyone up to Heaven and enjoy the beauty of eternal peace and happiness. There is one problem with this story. Consider the following:

1. Jesus walks around in a robe.

2. Jesus has strange fellow features.

3. Jesus does not speak English.

4. Jesus is an illegal immigrant.

5. Jesus makes no sense to a modern Republican, he is in favor of the poor and does not respect the wealthy.

6. If stopped by a cop he would continue walking toward him with open arms.

7. He was born and raised in the Middle East and we know all about those people.

I have a hunch Jesus knows all about American cops and just wants prefers to be crucified.

Oh, and he sure the heck would never vote for Bibi Netanyahu!
