A Shooting In Russia

Russian opposition leader Boris Nemstov is dead. That we can confirm, but everything else that has been written about this murder is confusing to say the least. According to Russian authorities, if one can ever believe Russian authorities, Zaur Dadayev was the man who killed Nemstov. Everyone agrees that he came from Chechnya and has ties to other people in that land. At this point, the story becomes somewhat murky.

1. Dadayev claims he killed Nemmstov because of religious reasons, Nemstov was Jewish.

2. Dadayev claims he killed Nemstov because the Russian supported Charlie Hebdo.

3. Dadayev claims he killed Nemstov for the $85,000.

4. Dadayev claims there was some sort of power struggle in Chechnya and somehow killing Nemstov was part of the mess.

5. Dadayev claims he had some other guys with him. He had to pay them for the job.

Vladimir Putin wants the world to know he was nowhere near Moscow at the time of the murder. I think he was in Siberia with his tigers.

Oh well, one day, we will get to know who did what and why they did it.

There Is Nothing To Fear!

I devoted thirty years of my life to the study of the history of crime in the United States and the world. I taught courses in the history of crime that included members of police departments. If there is one thing that I know is what has happened in the past and present about the issue of crime. At this juncture in American history the rate of crime is at its lowest. Americans today are safer than at any point i n our history. Criminals no longer linger on highways ready to hold up stage coaches and we actually have police forces. The initial police forces in America first appeared about the 1850s and 1860s. Prior to that point no policemen were on the streets of our cities and thus any person was subject to violence at the hands of criminals. Gangs roamed the streets of most American cities and they robbed and killed people. TGhe murder rate in New York City during the 19th century was about ten times the current rate.

So, what is reality to the current frightened American public?

1. There has been no terrorist attack since 9/11.

2. Actually, if normal procedures had been followed in the Bush administration to check on terror groups there never would have been a 9/11.

3. Ironically, in the nineteenth century there were stricter laws about weapons than in current America.

4. Today, anyone can employ the services of companies that provide protection against robbery. If you want to be safe, pick up the phone and get your home secured.

The sky is NOT falling. We are safe and secure. It is the best of times to be alive in modern America if you do not want bad people to kill or rob you!

Bibi, It’s Not Barack!

Bibi Netanyahu will undoubtedly become the next prime minister of the state of Israel. Of course, he will become prime minister and completely lack any concern about one out of five citizens of this country because they are of the Muslim or Christian religion. He sunk to the lowest form of politics in his quest for power. Throughout the campaign he appealed to the forces of hate in Israel who simply do not regard anyone other than a Jew as a human being. I hate to make this analogy, but exactly what was different from the Nazi claim that Jews were a lower race than Netanyahu depicting Palestinians as lacking the qualities of human beings. He argued they were lower forms of people.

President Obama spoke the truth: “The United States and this administration are deeply concerned about the rhetoric that seeks to marginalize Arab Israel citizens” and undermines the democratic process. I am certain many American Jews support Netanyahu. The problem is that it is impossible to be a Jew and hate Arabs. I realize Bibi wants to wait out Obama and expect the next American president will just love his hate. Will that person believe that hate is the path toward Middle East peace?

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.

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!

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?”

Will Israelis Vote With Minds?

In the coming days the people of Israel will cast their ballots and decide whether or not sanity rules rather than hysteria. Israel was founded as the one nation in the Middle East which was centered in an ethos of democracy and concern for all people. It arose in a world of dictatorships and had a foreign policy that wanted peace in the region.By the way in earlier days Israel had excellent relations with Turkey and even Iran. It was Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who transformed the friends of Israel in Turkey into enemies. It is the policies of Benjamin Netanyhu which have led to the current situation in which the President of the United States of America no longer trusts or respects the government of Israel. The current isolation of Israel was created by Bibi and his American Jewish billionaires.

The voters in Israel w8iill determine if their country becomes part of those in the world seeking peace in the Middle East or whether Israel decides o walk the road leading to war and apartheid.
