HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Now, this is one social worker who seeks to get close to her client.

At least you could warm up the frozen dinner!

If you are going to have terrorists, the least you can do is let them do their job.

On Being A Jew In Modern World

As one who was raised in the Jewish faith I increasingly find myself in a similar position to those who were raised as Muslims. We both have to endure the reality that people from our faith utilize hate and fear and violence against those who are weaker. In America, more and more Jews devote their lives to the plight of our endangered billionaires who are oppressed by the evil Barack Obama. Ah, for the days when Jewish leaders marched hand in hand with Martin Luther King and Jewish boys were murdered by the Ku Klux Klan. We Jews used to lead the fight for social justice in America, we Jews fought for the rights of Hispanic immigrants, it was Jewish union leaders who established the initial schools in the South which were open to both black and white people. Heck, half of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade which fought against Fascists in Spain were Jews. We Jews wanted a world in which ALL humans, including Muslims enjoyed the right to a life of peace and prosperity.

We Jews used to believe that is one person in this world was oppressed, so were we oppressed. Today, I head Jews speak in angry and hateful terms about Muslims or poor people. I feel lost in the modern Jewish world now that Benjamin Netanyahu is again leader of Israel and will continue his hateful policies toward those who are not Jewish. I have no idea who he is other than a bigot and hating man. Frankly, I feel ashamed to be part of the modern Jewish world in which hate has replaced love.

So, What Goes On Facebook?

There is an ongoing problem for those who run Facebook since several nations in the world define “defamation” as synonymous with writing the truth about dictatorial regimes. Turkey has numerous laws which make it a crime to say anything about the Armenian genocide, oops, I just broke the laws of Turkey by employing those two words-Armenians and genocide. China constantly demands removal of comments that represent the idea of free speech because in the land of China those in authority decide who can speak and what anyone can say. Thus the issue confronting Mark Zuckerberg is whether or not to accept these restrictions and allow Facebook to continue functioning around the world. Imagine if Nazi Germany was around and Hitler decided what could or could not be stated on Facebook?

I do not know the answer to this question. It must be extremely difficult for Zuckerberg to run an organization which daily confronts issues of free speech. I admire him for his efforts to continue Facebook as an an important institution while at the same time being controlled by petty dictators. This is one complex problem that is the complex problem for Mark, not Fred!

Bibi Says The Hell With Palestinians!

There is one thing certain about Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu–he wants to create a system of apartheid in Israel under which those who are Jews have all the power and those who are Muslims or Christians lack any power or semblance of equal rights. Bibi made it clear that if he continues in office there will NOT be a Palestinian state. He insists that Palestinian leaders must accept the concept that Israel is a JEWISH STATE. Of course, at this moment in time one our of five people in Israel is either a Muslim or Christian. The sad aspect of this situation is how many American Jews go along with the
Bibi madness which prevents any resolution of problems between Jews and Muslims. If one accepts the Bibi idea that Israel is a Jewish state, does this mean the United States of America is a CHRISTIAN STATE?

Just remember that what we now term, the United States of America, was founded by Christians seeking a homeland for CHRISTIANS! The election of Benjamin Netanyahu means the end of hope for peace between Jews and Muslims in Palestine. The situation in Israel is sad, but what is even sadder is the situation in America in which Jews support the destruction of democracy in Israel. Bibi says the hell with Palestinians which should lead American Jews to say–the hell with Netanyahu!

Mad Times In Iran Negotiations

Negotiations between major powers in the world and Iran have run into a roadblock. The infamous letter sent to the Iranian government by 47 Republican senators has created tension in the negotiation process. After all, if one is negotiating for the government of Iran certainly a question in your mind is whether or not an agreement that would be reached would some day be broken by the United States of America. Iranian
Foreign Minister Javad Zarif wants to know what the hell is going on. There is no question that our new brilliant foreign policy expert, Senator Tom Cotton of the great state of Arkansas knows all about the issues confronting nations in the Middle East.

1. No agreement means that Iran will double down on supplying terrorist organizations in the region.

2. Iran will continue with its nuclear program regardless of sanctions. After all, they have been working for years under sanctions.

3. Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu if returned to power might just send Israel planes to bomb Iran!

4. Hezbollah has thirty thousand missiles which would be sent toward Israel.

5. Assume 90% are shot down by the famous dome–that still means three thousand will hit Jews in Israel.

6. This will result in a Republican letter to the president demanding an American air assault in Iran.

We live in an era in which nut cases run the asylum!

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Australia, Canberra Times: “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”

Just trust our job creators to create high paying $8 an hour jobs!

Canada, Toronto Star: “I Am Going To Mars”

Any place to escape Republican congressmen.

France, Connexion: “This Is A Good Steak”

I will stake my reputation on this.

Sweden, Local: “Cover Your Eyes I Will Be Tearful”

Another promise from John Boehner.

China, China Daily: “Keep Peiping Population Down”

Just have adults sleep in separate beds.

Lies And Tribulations Of Bib Netanyahu

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu legally did not have to call for an election since he had a few more years to remain in power. Bibi decided to call a special election and obtain a huge mandate from the people of Israel for his policies. He also decided to go to America and gain the support of the Republican party on the assumption that if American Republicans love him so will the people of Israel. He shouted, he screamed, he warned Congress that the sky would fall if an agreement was reached with Iran. Of course, he had made the same speech back in 1998, but he clearly knew that members of the Republican party only knew about guns in the Constitution and anything else had long left their minds.

Bibi went back to Israel and continued shouting and LYING. He charge that in 2006 a government led by his Israel opponents, Kadima had decided to evacuate the Gaza area and allow Hamas to take over. It turns out that his Likud government had three times voted to evacuate Gaza and he had voted along with his fellow members of Likud. Israel opponent Ron Mendior put it clearly, “Bib is the biggest phony in the world, it is clear that his words are simply hot air.”

Oh sorry Bibi, but American Republicans do not vote in Israel. If they did, you would capture any and all votes!

John Voight Speaks

I somehow stumbled upon the words of movie actor, John Voight and was surprised to learn that in addition to the craft of acting, this man is a noted expert on politics and world affairs. I thought it only fair that I should share his words of wisdom with the world:

“Barack Obama does not love America”

“John Voight loves John Voight”

“John Voight loves Republicans”

“john Voight loves money”

“Obama does not love Israel”

I assume:

“John Voight loves Bibi”

I get confused, why should any American president have to “love Israel?”

OOPs I was informed by Ted Cruz that in the second amendment in addition to saying one must love guns also says, one must love Israel!

By the way, is there anything in the Constitution that says one must love “America?”

Say “Rape” And Add Word: Pakistan

I confess to having been raised with the concept that one does not attack any religious figure, particularly someone of another faith. In a sense, these people are “off ground” to acts of violence. I do understand that members of the Taliban do not like any and all foreigners in their land. But, what sometimes gets me confused is when they blow themselves up and kill any and all people in an area. I assume but he law of probability some of those blown up are fellow Muslims. Oh, I forgot, there are bad and good Muslims, something like when Catholics hate Protestants which empowers any Christian to go ahead and murder a fellow Christian. OK,I get that point, but how does one understand when the Taliban rapes a 74 year old nun? For God’s sake, this is an elderly woman who spends her life praying to the big guy up in the sky.

OK, I must learn to accept that anyone is subject to rape in Pakistan, anyone is subject to being killed in Pakistan. I must accept that raping an elderly woman somehow, in some way, indicate the rapist is simply following the dictates of God. Logically speaking, this leaves only one conclusion – this God up in the sky really does not think much of his creations if he approves of rape and murder of them.

Such acts only leave me doubting the existence of God if he is in anyway connected with these creatures of death.

The Genocide That Never Was

At least once year the government of Turkey becomes upset and is ready to send in its army against those who dare to utter the word, ARMENIAN particularly if it is followed by the word, GENOCIDE. Actually, it is against the law in Turkey to make the absurd claim there was ever a war on the part of any turkish government against its Armenian citizens. For some unknown reason during World War I about a million or so Armenians then residing in the Ottoman empire simply vanished. Let me offer some explanations as to their disappearance:

1. They were taken away in alien space ships.

2. They decided to commit mass suicide.

3. They migrated to the US and their descendants now reside in the state of California.

4. They joined the Russian army and were killed by Germans.

5. Jews somehow murdered them all.

But, there is one thing that is certain– no Turkish soldier murdered any Armenian.
