Tunisia Closes Mosques

Two weeks ago two gunmen roamed along a beach in Tunisia and wound up murdering 30 tourists. Naturally, this has caused thousands of people not to come to Tunisia and has resulted in the loss of work for thousands of Tunisians. In one sense, this is a lose-lose situation for the people of Tunisia. There is no doubt that after twenty years of dictatorial government, most Tunisians do not trust their own government or they listen to the voices of hate and violence.

So, what can be done? The government just closed 80 mosques which they believe are led by imams preaching hate. PM Hassib Essid put it clear that if “we change a radical imam from a mosque,and the next day he is replaced by another extremist imam.”

The only hope lies in creating economies that provide jobs and get youth out of the cafes and talk about violence. Easy to say, hard to do.

Bad Jews And Good Jews

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is ordinarily angry at something or someone, particularly anyone who dares to “blacken” the good name of Israel. After all, Bibi was elected by 27% of the population which means that he now speaks for ALL JEWS everywhere in the world. Arutz Sheva, the deputy foreign minister denounced the European Union for seeking to smear the good name of Israel. She is upset that EU money is going to terrorist organizations seeking to destroy Israel and replace it with a Muslim nation. Among the organizations that hate Israel are:

Rabbis for Human Rights
Coalition Of Women for Peace

It is quite clear by simply listing these terrorist groups had endangered the state of Israel is at this moment. Just imagine if a group of rabbis spoke out for human rights!!

Obama And Stewart

President Barack Obama appeared on the Jon Stewart show and was delightful. He was relaxed, he told jokes an carefully explained the nuclear accord with Iran. Of course, one wonders why he did not go on national television and explain all aspects of the negotiations and make clear there were safeguards. Obama has constantly refused to use the power of television to get across ideas. He never explained the Affordable Care act. In failing to explain these ideas the president allows Fox News to take control of the dialogue. They set the plate,and all must eat the food that is on their table. Every great American president in the 20th century has used the Bully Pulpit of the mass media to explain complex ideas to Americans.

Barack Obama has to the most inept politician of the twentieth and twenty first centuries. Use the media to propagandize your ideas. After all, you are the President. For God’s sake use the power of that office!

It’s Terrible, It’s Horrible!

As I recall about thirty years ago then President Ronald Reagan signed an agreement with the Soviet Government in order to reduce arms and atomic weapons. As I recall, the Communists wanted to destroy capitalist nations and become the dominant power on Earth. As I recall, not a single Republican condemned Reagan for negotiating with a foreign nation that wanted to wipe out America. As I recall, back in 1972, Republican President Richard Nixon negotiated a treaty with Communist China, a country that had killed 25,000 Americans. Congressional Republicans went along with this agreement.

Alas, President Obama negotiated a treaty with a country that has never killed an American, and has never posed any danger to the existence of the USA. Every Republican candidate now condemns the treaty with Iran as horrible, disaster, and so on. And, not a single one has offered an alternative. In other words, when Democrats do what Republicans do, the only conclusion is that whatever they do is HORRIBLE!

Another Day, Another Death

It has now become the expected norm that one will explore the Internet or read a newspaper in the morning only to discover another dead black body died at the hands of police. Sarah Bland was on her way to work when pulled over by a cop. He claimed that she changed lanes without making the appropriate signal. I assume just about every American driver does that at least once a week. The cop became upset because she was smoking a cigarette in the car, ordered her to cease and desist, and within a few moments, he had pulled her out of the car due to her lousy attitude, placed cuffs on her, and hauled Ms. Davis off to jail.

Two days later she was found in her cell with a rope around her neck and dead. I assume police and Fox News will chalk this one up to “threatening the life of a cop.” My question is: “Why was she not immediately released on bail?

Another Dead Muslim Dude

About one-fifth of my life has been spent while some American President has a media conference in which he boasts of killing off some big shot Muslim terrorist leader and thus set in motion the end of terrorism in the Middle East. As I recall, first President Bush promised to track down and kill Osama bin Laden. Then came along the black dude who showed us pictures of the military getting rid of Osama bin Laden. OK, the big honcho was now dead. So, I was informed by my government that once we got rid of the head guy, then…… The “then”part was never made clear to me. I assume they were promising me that once Osama was gone, then…. Then, what?

There is absolutely no evidence in any guerrilla war that getting rid of one top guy leads to a collapse of the entire group. It is time to end this fiasco about killing off leaders and turn our focus on how to turn young people away from terrorist activities. How anyone considered pushing for major job creation programs in the Middle East?

Israel Listens To Haters

I do belong to Jewish temple and thus have been made aware by the local Rabbi that under no conditions am I allowed to utter negative words about the state of Israel. To do so indicates that I “hate Israel” and that I am an “anti-Semite.” Secretary of State John Kerry and EU foreign ministers, a collection of people who “hate Israel” and are, by definition, “anti-Semites,” urged Israel to cease its proposed program to demolish the village of Khirbet Susiya. It is a PALESTINIAN village on land that was originally allocated by the United Nations to Palestinians. But, there must be progress, which for the Israel government means removing Palestinians from land that belongs to them.

Kerry said: “We’re closely following developments and we strongly urge the Israel authorities to refrain from carrying out any demolition of the village.” This is a clear indication the Obama administration hates Israel and hates Jews! To love Bibi Netanyahu is a commandment of God Himself.

Muslims Murder Muslims

Another day,another murderous attack by one Muslim group upon another Muslim group. Some college students in Turkey were planning to go to the city of Kobani which is on the border of Syria and Turkey. Their plan was to rebuild parks and centers for children.They had no political agenda other than aiding fellow Muslims who are undergoing the horrible aspects of war.

A suicide bomber from ISIS blew himself up along with 30 other Muslims and wounded dozens more Muslims. I gather the bomber will be conversing with Allah about how he murdered Muslims. Somehow, I do not believe Allah will be thrilled with such news. Wouldn’t be wonderful if Muslims agreed not to murder one another–at least for a month!

Security For Homeland?

The terrorist attack in Chatanooga, Tennessee has raised questions concerning the effectiveness of Homeland Security. From day one of creation of this Cabinet Department, false hopes have been used to defend its performance. First, there is no way, no program, no plan which can result in the absence of terrorist attacks. This is a nation of over 300,000,000 people scattered over three thousand miles so it is virtually impossible to prevent attacks. Republicans constantly worry about our southern border with Mexico while ignoring our 3,000 mile border with Canada. Honestly, any terrorist with even a limited knowledge of geography knows it is easer entering America via a northern route than confronting the heavily guarded southern border.

Homeland Security now claims that over the past year it has thwarted”over 60 terrorist attacks.” I will not dispute this figure,but exactly what constitutes a “planned terrorist attack?” Is the planning process or is it the actual action that ensues. It is horrible that four Marines and a sailor died, but it is impossible to prevent all such attacks. Such is life, and such is death.
