Fox News On Torture

Without securing permission from Fox News we have decided to present their interpretation of the report that was submitted by Senator Diane Feinstein to the world:

“Once again the Obama administration has made clear its hatred of the United States of America and the people who live within its borders. Once again it is clear that the office of President of the United States of America is occupied by a man who seeks to degrade our reputation and aid forces of Islam who seek to destroy the very basis of our society. The report of the so-called “torture” of prisoners simply reveals that when a free society which is dedicated to the ideals of our Founding Fathers attempts to defend itself against the horror of Islamic bestiality, those whose ideals are foreign to those of Americas, offer a report on how real Americans performed their duties.

1. There is not a single example in this report of any prisoner being beheaded.

2. This report transforms examples of physical fitness activities into “torture.”

3. No mention in this report is made of the brutalities of al-Qaeda or ISIS. Why?

4. There is not a single example in this report of anyone being shot by a firing squad.

5. No mention is made in this report that by retaining these brutal people in Guantanamo, the lives of thousands of American were saved.

When will Barack Obama begin acting like a true American?”

Death In A Synagogue

There is a pattern of hate in the world. Whenever the Israel government appears to assume an aggressive stance and attack Palestinians, there are people who assume that all Jews are responsible for what occurs in Israel. For some reason, Irish people in the United States of America have no connection as to what happens in Ireland, but the concept that Jews all over the world have a connection with one another still lives on within the Christian and Muslim worlds. Levi Rosenvial, age 22, was praying in a Chabad synagogue in Brooklyn when he was attacked by a man shouting, “I want to kill the Jew.” he proceeded to stab the man at prayer. Actually, there is something ironic in seeking to murder a person who is praying to his or her God. I always assumed the purpose of praying was to show respect.

It turns our that Calvin Peters is a well known criminal with a record a mile long. After the stabbing he was confronted with police and charged them. The result was that Calvin died of a bullet in his chest. Just another victim of hate and anger and lack of any sense of reality. I have no doubt that another Jew somewhere in the world will die because of some action of Israel. Oh, if Jews could only be treated as the Irish are!

Israel Joins The Crowded Skies

The government of Israel completed its bombing in Gaza which meant that Israel planes no longer were engaged in any conflict. However, when a nation has nothing else to do, there is always the war in Syria for an enterprising country seeking to enjoy the benefits of dropping bombs. Iranian planes are now over Iraq, and they drop bombs on the bad people known as ISIS because the bad people are Sunnis and we Shiites know the only recourse is to kill bad Sunnis. American planes are bombing in Syria, Saudi planes are bombing, British planes are bombing, Canadian planes are bombing, French planes are bombing so why not some Israel planes in action? The most important element in Syria is that it has provided all sorts of pilots to get some practice in bombing. Naturally, they only bomb the bad people. Collateral damage is not in their vocabulary.

Israel Intelligence Minister Yuval Stenitz insists the reason for bombing stems from his nation’s policy of not allowing bad people to get in possession of bad weapons of war. “We have a firm policy of preventing all possible transfers of sophisticated weapons to terrorist organizations.” Sounds logical. So, Israel planes bombed the airport in Damascus. The Syrian government wants the world to know that Israel attacked in order to “help terrorists in Syria.” I guess these days the bad guys can be good guys or the reverse. Depends on who is bombing and who is bombed.

Chairman Ditka Speaks

I am currently a resident of the Chicago area and thus must read the words of former Chicago Bears linebacker, Mike Ditka whose political comments were widely spread during the past race for governor of the state of Illinois. Most probably, seeing his words actually repeated in the daily press about politics and world affairs gave this former football player the desire to share his wisdom on just about every event in recent times. We will not make any comments, just print his words of wisdom.

On whether of not Michael Brown had his hands up: “That’s note what happened.l I don’t know exactly what happened, but I know that’s not what happened.”

On climate change: “Look,I don’t know th at first thing about climatology, but let me tell you one thing about climatology. It’s a bunch of nonsense and I know its nonsense despite knowing absolutely nothing whatsoever about it.”

Benghazi: “I’ll tell you this much,I wasn’t there and have no idea what actually happened.But what happened was entirely the fault of the Obama administration’s fault. I don’t know whose fault it was, but I know it was their fault.”

On pancakes: “Never had a pancake. Not once, I am a waffle man. But if there is one thing I know for sure, it’s that pancakes are delicious.”

I believe that Mr. Ditka would make an excellent candidate for the Republican party in 2016. He can win on a platform based on the principle: I don’t Know but I do Know!

If You Are A Christian, Death Awaits

These days one needs a list of which groups that are killing people belong to which Islamist militant band of murderers. Kenya made the mistake of sending troops to fight against al Shabab in Somalia. If there is one certainty in life that always is true, just wait a few moments and some group of Islamist militants will appear somewhere in Africa to kill and murder. On the west coast of Africa, Boko Haram devotes its time to killing Muslims who are the wrong kind of Muslims, on the east coast of Africa, the boys from al Shabab are ready and willing to murder anyone who is not a Muslim. In fairness to them, they have some principles, save the Muslims, and kill the infidels. They approached a quarry at midnight in Kenya, rounded up the workers, and then separated the good ones- Muslims from the bad ones- Christians. Made the bad ones kneel and then killed them with one shot to the head.

The good news in east Africa is that a Muslim can live, the bad news in west Africa is Muslims die if they are the wrong kind of Muslims. Welcome to the world of death.

Israel Status Quo

The pattern of how Israel responds to issues in the Middle East continues along the path of “let’s pretend what we have been doing can continue being done for at least a hundred years.” In February, 1953, Daniel Malan, newly elected head of the South African government introduced the idea of apartheid which separated whites and blacks. For those who did not believe two people inhabiting the same area of land could remain separated, he promised that for generations to come the idea of apartheid would endure,and thus black skinned people could remain passive as second class citizens. Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wants to transform Israel into a “Jewish State” in which there are citizens with certain rights, and non-Jews with fewer rights. Regardless of which words are used, this is simply another version of apartheid.

Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and Financial Minister Yair Lipid, who oppose this action have been dismissed. Bibi Netanyahu will call for a new election which he will most probably win. Daniel Malan won election after election until one day reality set in and apartheid crumbled. Believe it or not, Bibi, but blacks did not go on a rampage and kill whites. Both learned to live in peace with one another. Eventually, that will occur in Israel.

Hate Keeps Hate Alive In Israel-Palestinian Conflict

There comes a moment in any conflict when arguments as to who is responsible for the origin of the dispute become boring and repetitive. The Israel government under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has displayed scant interest in resolving disputes with Palestinians. Palestinians have reached the point in which committing some act of violence appears to make sense even though such behavior will never resolve anything. During the past few months eleven Jewish Israelis(always remember that twenty percent of Israelis are NOT Jewish) while twelve Palestinians have been killed. Each side is absolutely convinced that not only is right on their side, but also God. Jews insist that God gave them the land, and Muslims insist that Allah made the land sacred and Muslim. PM Netanyahu is demanding that Israel be proclaimed a JEWISH state with special rights for Jews. OK, so 20 percent are not Jews, no one is perfect.

The original dream of those who created the state of Israel was a home for Jews and one in which people of ALL religions would be at peace with one another. After all, the United States of America originally was founded by Protestants seeking a homeland. At this point in time, American Jews constitute less than two percent of the population. How about proclaiming that America is the national homeland of Christians?

Jihad Makes Me Feel Strong!

There is a missing quality among those who term themselves believers in democracy, but the feeling of being ready to die for a cause is growing ever stronger among many young Muslims in Europe. For most Europeans the very idea of serving in the military is not an attractive idea. For most Americans, the concept of serving the nation is much less interesting that what is on my iPad. For those raised prior to the onset of material comforts, serving in the armed forces was part of being a member of society. The most amazing aspect of the growth of Jihadism among young Muslims is the desire among those raised in the modern technological world to risk life for a cause, a dream.

Ismail Cetinkaya told a German reporter that he was raised in Germany and for most of his early life behaved like a modern person seeking the good life. Then, he discovered the power of belief, only his new belief was in the Muslim religion. “Paradise lies at the feet of your mother God and the desire to put self to Jihad.” He went off to fight in Syria and discovered that his new felt love of the Muslim religion made the thought of dying a hope, rather than a fear. As he now tells fellow Muslims, “I call you to Jihad. This is where you will find freedom.” Being a jihadist enables this young man to challenge his weaknesses and discover that he has strength.

How many young Americans have this attitude. During World War II millions did!

Blow Up Houses To Display Power

Mohamed Abu Jamal is not anyone that those reading this blog know or will ever know. He is an elderly man who once had a son. The son is now dead. Together with his cousin, his son, Ghassan took a gun and meat cleavers to a synagogue where they brutally murdered five people in Jerusalem because they were Jews. The Israel government has a policy of responding to the murder of Jews in Israel, it simply blows up the homes of parents since, naturally, the innocent parent is responsible for the actions of their children. Mohamed will now only lose his home, but his means of work and will be expelled from the city of Jerusalem in which he has lived all his life. I assume the theory of this action is that if you raise a son who kills then you must be punished. I have no idea as to whether or not Mr. Jamal believes in hatred towards Jews, frankly, that is of no importance since he made the mistake of raising a son who committed a murder –of a Jew. By the way, if a Jew in Israel kills a Muslim no home is destroyed.

How about:

1. Asking Mr. Jamal to join with other parents of those who kill the innocent and work for peace and reconciliation?

2. Establishing a law that punishes blowing up the home of those who murder, regardless of their religion?

Where Are The Leaders?

I was a man in his thirties when the decade of the sixties arrived and thus was intellectually and emotionally sensitive to what occurred. During the sixties there were numerous black leaders on the scene ranging from Martin Luther King to Malcolm X and great writers such as Ralph Ellison or James Baldwin or even student leaders like Stokely Carmichael. During the past few nights I have yet to see an important black leader engaged in the fight for human rights. Then again, I have yet to see someone with a white skin assuming the mantle of leadership. Sorry, Barack, you just do not come across as a leader of “black people.” During the past few nights our society has lacked any semblance of leadership from religious or political areas of America. Martin Luther King on his marches walked arm in arm with Jewish and Christian leaders as well as union fighters for social justice as Walter Reuther.

Where have people of these background gone? Where were the Catholic and Protestant ministers? Where were the Rabbis? Where were the political leaders of our society? Most probably home watching CNN and then retiring for a good night’s sleep. Our society is leaderless. Again, sorry, Barack but at this moment you have lost any semblance of being a leader. Did you check with Valerie about what to say last night??
