Come Home To Israel!

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged Jews living in Denmark to return home to the safety of Israel after ONE Jew in that nation was killed by Muslim extremists. Bibi is concerned that those who have fellow people in his land are safer within the confines of Israel than in nations in which they are subject to violence. About one in five people living in Israel is a Muslim, and, I assume being a citizen of Israel means that your government is concerned with your safety. Yesterday in the violent nation of the United States of America still another Muslim was murdered by those who hate Muslims. Ahmad al-Jumaili was taking pictures of the snow fall when a couple of American violent haters decided to shoot him. He was in the supposedly quiet city of Dallas, but that did not prevent his murder. Of course a week ago Muslims were subject to having their Islamic center burned in the peaceful city of Houston.

Of course, two Muslims were brutally murdered in North Carolina. I therefore urge Bibi Netanyahu to offer safety to one and all Muslims in America who are in threat of their life in America. Come home to the safety of Israel!

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Australia, Canberra Times: “Absurd Hurdle”

A president who must allow Congress to supervise foreign policy.

USA, aol: “Smitten By The Police”

These days I would prefer to be smitten than smitten with a gun.

France, Connexion: “Be Tough And Smack Kids’

Just remember that in many households kids have access to guns!

Canada, Toronto Globe: ” I Am Going To Mars”

At last some place without Republican crazies!

Denmark,Copenhagen Post; “You Can Never Go Back”

The real issue is what is going on in that back?

Israel Rally For Peace

The Republican party of Israel, oops, I mean the Israel equivalent of the Republican party, insists that ISRAEL stands with Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu and that when he speaks, he speaks for ALL JEWS throughout the world. A mass rally was held in Israel and the estimates of how many attended range from 40,000 to 80,000. It is quite clear that these citizens of Israel do NOT believe Bibi is their leader. Among the speakers a the rally was Meir Dagan, former head of Mossad. “I’m not a politician or a public servant,and I’m not here out of personal aspirations or in search of appointments, the only party to which I belong is the state of Israel.” He went on to emphasize that Israel is a nation that is surrounded by enemies, but the only real enemy is “our leadership.”

The main threat to the existence of Israel is and has always been, one, Benjamin Netanyahu. He has failed:

to resolve issues with Palestinians.
he has over reacted to the death of three Israel children by murdering 1500 innocent civilians in Gaza.
he has absolutely NO alternative plan to deal with Iran other than shout for ware!

“BULLSHIT!”

Members of the Republican party went wild with enthusiasm for the worlds of Bibi Netanyahu who demanded military action against Iran and an end to the weak and ineffective policies of Barack Obama. Meier Dagan is the ex-headof Israel’s secret service, the Mossad, and he does have a slightly different take on the Bibi speech. One can sum up his perspective in a single word: BULLSHIT. Of course, this man actually has studied the situation, both in the Middle East and in Iran. Dagan was particularly infuriated when Bibi told Congress: “Israel’s soldiers have boundless courage and Israel is ready to defend itself.” Dagan felt these words were defiant and almost challenging Iran to attack Israel.

Dagan pointed out that the missiles of Iran pose no threat to the United States since they could never reach its shores. Bibi is great on rhetoric but somewhat confused about geography. Dagan, and most members of Mossad fear that Netanyahu’s policies.”on the matter of the Palestinian state are leading to a binational state or an apartheid state.” Benjamin Netanyahu is akin to white leaders of South Africa who promised that blacks would never attain equality in their land. Just continue to support apartheid and the end result would be peace. So, it is with Israel.

Saudi Arabia Is Scared!

The government of Saudi Arabia increasingly is frightened of what is happening in the world. When a government is ruled by and extended family that numbers in the thousands there is a cause of concern that people in this land will begin to question why A family possesses billions of dollars while they fight to have a decent life. They might begin to wonder if a democratic government might create an economy that depended on other than oil for revenue and wealth. At this moment, these are the fears of the government of Saudi Arabia:

1. ISIS preaches an end to corruption and is ready and willing to murder any and all they dislike.

2. Iran is viewed as the center of Shiites. Naturally if one is Sunni, who else to fear?

3. The Muslim Brotherhood is another enemy. Yes, they are Sunni but they want power.

4. The new Shiite government of Yemen which is composed of a branch of Shiites.

5. The government of Iraq which seeks friends in Iran.

Oh, them Israelis have for decades been the enemy. However, Bibi hates Iran and Saudi hates Iran so who knows–a new friend on the horizon???

Nemstov Dead, Fear Ends

I do not believe that Boris Nemstov ever carried a weapon other than his bit mouth. He simply could not shut up about the end of freedom in his beloved Russia. So, what else could Vladimir Putin do but end this threat to the very survival of the nation? The one aspect of life that most frightens the ruler of Russia is a voice that remains vocal in a land that demands silence about the abuse of freedom of speech. OH, in reality, the death of Nemstov is simply a footnote in the pages of Russian history. For Putin, this death is part of his campaign to save Russia by making the world understand that any and all acts that he deems to pose a threat must be halted. “Our position depends entirely on how much the world is afraid of us. We must protest against the collective suicide to Russia.” Exactly, how Nemstov is part of the war against Russia is a bit unclear.

However, at a time when corruption is the norm, inflation zooms, the government is ineffective in creating a dynamic economy, then any voice which urges effective and free government IS the threat. Vladimir Putin does not grasp the world will eventually pay no attention to his fair land. The world will allow it to descend into chaos and poverty.

On ISIS, a Non Muslim Group

The easiest way to anger anyone in the Republican party of Fox News is to make a comment that ISIS is not really a Muslim group so much as an alienated mass of young men and women who seek to obtain some form of identify by murdering the innocent. For those in ISIS, they have a political program and use religion in order to obtain these goals. They are much less about religion than about seeking power in the Middle East and Africa. ISIS attracts young people who feel alienated in their native land, they lack a sense of identify and desperately want to belong to some group that offers them a feeling of power and self worth. The Islamic state offers all that and empowers these lonely men and women. ISIS does not judge the individual, one can enter the group and discover a sense of power, and, more important a new group of comrades who offer friendship and a vision of the future.

There is absolutely nothing in the Koran that justifies the murder of innocent men, women and children. Heck the Bible is filled with such stories, remember the death of innocent Egyptian children by the God of Jews? ISIS is NOT composed of religious scholars. It more closely resembles the Nazi SS than it does a group of religious men and women. ISIS beheads, the Nazi SS burned alive Jews, bashed in the heads of babies and boasted they were following the orders of their leader. It is time to recognize ISIS for what it is– a collection of disaffected young people seeking to find some sense of belonging in a world that has set them adrift.

France, Connexion: “New Burger Chain”

I assume it serves wine.

USA, aol: “Back To Normal”

The crazies are still with us in spirit and inn Congress.

UK, Guardian: “Who Stole Spring?

I checked with John Boehner and he assures me it was BARACK Obama.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “On Easy Street”

For the Koch brothers it is always on easy street along with their easy money.

New Zealand, New Zealand Herald: “Police Shooting Uncoordinated”

Thank God or there would be more dead people!

Deal Might Be Winning Hand

Talks continue between leading nations of the world and Iran over issues of nuclear development. This discussion has now gone on for over a year, but there are no some signs that an agreement could be reached. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif expressed an optimistic view of the possibility of resolving the conflict between his nation and the world. “We believe that we are very close.We are close if the political decision can be made to get to yes, as President Obama said.” He also warned that it was time to reach an understanding “once this hysteria is out, this fear mongering is out,” then a deal would be possible. Too many Americans understand that Zarif and President Rouhani are fighting against forces in Iran which seek to continue conflict and war in hope that one day Iran will possess an atomic weapon and then…

Reality: one day Iran will get an atomic bomb. The issue is not wether Iran gets one, but which leaders run the government? If the Iranian people can finally elect leaders who seek peace and prosperity, then the issue of whether such a government has or does not have an atomic bomb will not be a major issue.

US Defends Israel

Even as Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was blasting the foreign policy of President Barack Obama, US Secretary of State John Kerry was defending the nation of Israel before the United Nations Human Rights Council. He charged the group continued to focus on human rights issues within Israel but ignored similar, if not worse, examples in other parts of the world. Ironically, just as Bibi was accusing the Obama administration of failing to support Israel, leaders of Palestinian groups were accusing the United States of failing to address human rights issues in Palestine because the Americans regard “Israel”as being above the law!”

For the record, the Dome that prevents missiles from hitting Israel was built with US technology and Money. So much for hating Israel.

Oh, former Israel President Shimon Peres said the actions of Netanyahu was the first time Israel leaders interfered into American politics
