Finally, Pakistan Deals With Rape Victims

The “nation” of Pakistan over the past sixty years has gradually, but consistently, become a dysfunctional state of anarchy and madness. In its origin there were educated leaders seeking to create a modern secular focused nation that would adhere to the Muslim religion, but also respect people of other faiths. They wanted to create a MODERN nation that would adhere to ideas regarding the role of women in society. Instead of that dream becoming reality, the dream has been transformed into a nightmare of ancient ideas running rampant. During the past eight years in Pakistan, at least 3000 women have been murdered by their relatives because of allegedly “immoral behavior” that violated family “honor.”

Finally, a Pakistani Court has imposed the death sentence upon the family of Farzana Parveen who was brutally murdered by -father, brother, two cousins– because she married the wrong man. This murder took place outside the gates of the Lahore High Court! Imagine this family beating to death their daughter, their sister, their cousin, in broad daylight in the center of a city! The Court imposed a death sentence upon the group of four. They continue insisting the issue is “honor.” How come a man can marry whomever he desires and it never violates family HONOR?

Only Big Government Will Save Us From ISIS!

Once upon a time in the United States of America we confronted real dangers to our survival such as a civil war or World War II when we confronted the best army in the world in Germany as well as millions of Japanese soldiers and sailors. I simply do not recall the fear that now runs through this nation about ISIS, a band of soldiers numbering about 30,000 who lack artillery, tanks or planes. But, for some Americans ISIS is “the greatest threat in history.” There were times during the Vietnam war when some insisted that Viet Cong soldiers would get in wooden ships and sail across the Pacific Ocean and land in California in order to rape and pillage. Exactly how ISIS will destroy America is never explained. Yes, they could set off some bombs, yes, they might kill a few dozen people, but this organization lacks capability of doing real harm. The United States Senate failed by one vote to pass the USA Freedom Act which would prevent the National Security Agency from gathering bulk phone records and intruding into th e lives of American citizens.

All one has to do in order to give greater power to government over our private lives is to SHOUT: ISIS. Opponents claim we need to check on Americans in order to prevent terrorism in this nation.

1. Forget about Mexico, the border with Canada cannot be completely secured. A terrorist can easily slip across the border. Such is life. And, such is possible death for a few Americans.

2. A ship can enter our harbor with explosives and blow itself up. Such is life, such is death.

Reality: over a dozen years since 9/11 and no major terrorist act against Americans.

The Fire This Time!

Let me make clear there is no justification for committing murder either against your enemy or your friends. The definition of being a civilized person is that we employ our mouth rather than physical violence agains those we hate. It is particularly horrible when people enter a house of worship and violate their own religion by hacking to death those who are the “enemy.” Two Palestinian males wielding meat cleavers entered a synagogue and brutally murdered several Jews including four rabbis. This horror was simply a horror just waiting to occur. The two Palestinians came from East Jerusalem where Jews are purchasing homes in predominantly Muslim areas. Who doubted for a moment that it was simply a matter of time before some crazed young Palestinians would engage in an orgy of hate and violence? Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as always, is promising a “harsh response.”

Unfortunately, the Middle East is bereft of a leader such as Nelson Mandela or Martin Luther King, both men knew that responding with violence only ensured there would be nonstop violence. “You kill my people, so I kill your people” is a plan leading to death, not peace. If Netanyahu were a King or Mandela, this is what he would propose:

1. A conference to resolve issues in Jerusalem based on respect for all parties.

2. A promise of COMPROMISE.

3. A promise that for once there will be give-and-take in order to resolve West Bank issues.

The Fire This Time should not lead to The Fire Next Time!

Recept Erdogan Comments On History

President Recep Erodgan and his Justice and Development Party assumed power in Turkey over a decade ago. He was successful in preventing the Turkish generals from using their power to destroy democracy in Turkey. and he did usher in years of economic development. In the process he gradually destroyed the democratic society that once was part of Turkish society. His nation now holds the record for placing in prison more journalists than any other nation in the world. Hew has repeatedly bungled attempts to reach an accord with the Kurdish minority. And, he recently concluded that ISIS is less a threat than Kurds who simply wan to rule themselves, not other people.

He recently informed a meeting of people from Latin America, that based on his research it is now clear that Muslim sailors reached the continent of South America 314 years before the arrival of Columbus. He insists that Columbus saw a mosque on a hill in Cuba. Actually, the interpreter for Columbus was a Jew. Columbus thought there were Jews in China. I await the demand of Erdogan that Muslims have the right tow worship in Cuba. Tell that one to the Castro boys!

Life In A ISIS State

I hav the greatest respect for people who truly believe in any religion whose goals are the betterment of human life. Why else believe in a religion unless the outcome of this belief is to further the welfare of humans? The folks who call themselves, ISIS, continue to behave as though their aim is to kill and harm anyone who is a Muslim. They behead Muslims, they rape Muslim women, heck they lashed a 14 year old boy whose crime was to take a sip of water during Ramadan. On the other hand, ISIS leaders insist their actions are in accord with the Muslim religion. During the course of my life I have heard Christians insist their behavior is in accord with the teachings of Jesus as they murdered six million men, women and children whose crime was to be Jewish. Germans insisted that is what Jesus wanted. Over in Japan, religious fanatics murdered millions of Chinese, including the rape of thousands of women, God told them.

In Africa, Muslims and Christians vie to see which can murder ordinary folk, in the name of God. ISIS Muslims are no different from any other religion. I doubt if God wants his creations to be murdered.

Let’s Impeach Black Dude

It is less than ten days and already some Republicans are muttering the word, Impeachment. In order to assist these gallant defenders of our Constitution, let me list some reasons why Barack Obama should be Impeached!

1. He was born in Africa. I have yet to have him produce proof that he was not born in Africa. Check with the eminent Constitutional authority, Donald Trump if you doubt this.

2. He chews gum at important international meetings.

3. He wears weird clothes at international meetings.

4. He is the first politician in American history who told a lie!

5. He refuses to hold press conferences.

6. He is the first American President to draw upon Executive powers. The First!

7. He refuses to compromise by agreeing to all demands of his opponents!

8. He is the first American President to send soldiers overseas without approval of Congress.

The bottom line is that Barack Obama does not like the Republican Party!!

Death In Mexico

It has become a normal attitude to define the Muslim religion as suffering from some sort of deficit when it comes to murder. Americans go wild with fury when ISIS Muslims chop off heads, and even liberals like Bill Maher blame these actions upon the Muslim religion. He is constantly insisting the Muslim religion sanctions murder of the innocent. Christian Mexican drug lords have murdered an estimate 50,000 people over the past five years. Yes, Bill, these murderers are members of the Catholic Church that you so despise. Forty three Mexican college students disappeared after they complained about the actions of a mayor. For weeks the media has reported the “disappearance” because no one knows what happened to them.

Well, we now know. Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karem is convinced that fragments of bodies found near a river must be the boys. Initial reports indicate that a drug gang allied with the mayor killed the boys, set up huge funeral pyre that burned for hours and the bodies were placed in this gruesome finality of life. The next time Americans complain about the Muslim religion being prone to atrocious murders just remember the Christian Mexican drug lords and the Christian mayor of a small town.

Oh, and never forget that Nazis were Christians!

Onward Christian Soldiers Marching As To Iraq

As you may or may not recall back in 2008 the newly elected President Obama promised to end our wars in Afghanistan and in Iraq. OK, he did remove most soldiers from Iraq although he did insist upon a “surge”in Afghanistan which was about as successful as the one in Iraq–in other words, it never worked aside from a few months. I do not blame Barack Obama for the ineptitude of Iraq Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki who single handedly created the current mess. His anti-Sunni program turned thousands against the Iraq government and compelled most to ally with ISIS. Most probably Obama had limited options in Iraq. Although he could have frozen any and all aid until a coalition government was formed in Iraq.

President Obama will soon dispatch about 1,500 US troops to join the 1,000 currently training Iraq forces. Did Obama have options? Most probably not. However, he could have offered the Iranian army military equipment if they would train Iraqi soldiers. Of course, that would have annoyed AIPAC and led Republicans to go ballistic. I await the Republican military strategy for Iraq. So do Americans!

Stop Them Americans From Voting!

Republicans are constantly warning the American people that its greatest dangers come from Muslim fanatics or Ebola. The frightened masses of Americans went to the polls fearing some terrible danger that lurks on the borders of America, and it must be stopped. It is clear a majority of those who voted–remember that a majority of Americans never cast a ballot– were convinced their vote was a weapon to save America from—??? Less than forty percent of Americans actually cast a ballot. What have we learned from this election. If few Americans DO vote, then laws and restrictions against voting favor conservative forces.. Reality is that fanatics on the right will vote because their hearts are filled with the passion of hate. There is scant doubt that hundreds of thousands of Americans never got a chance to vote. The Republican party did a magnificent job of reducing voting. Reality check: the most important electoral power in possession of Republicans is reducing the number of those who do not vote. It worked!

So, what is the goal of those who seek that America is once again a land in which the right to vote is not abused.

1. A mass program using social media must make Americans aware of what happened to the right to vote in 2014.

2. The president must hold weekly press conferences in which he discusses the right to vote.

3. Groups like the AARP must make the elderly understand that their right to vote is being denied by Republicans.

4. High school teachers must begin to discuss this topic in Social Studies classes.

5. How about wealthy folk purchasing ads on billboards about the right to vote?

So, What About Iraq?

A new reality is emerging in Iraq that has been virtually ignored by Fox News and its band of pert cure blond haired experts on hair, but who lack any knowledge of the Middle East are not offering their words of wisdom about Iraq. There is a strange silence coming from ISIS. No scenes of ISIS men waving guns aloft as they enter another village and murder the innocent. Frankly, the air attack in desert areas has made it difficult for mass groups to appear. If a large ISIS force makes an appearance, it is soon blasted to pieces by planes. ISIS simply lacks anti-aircraft weapons that can shoot down planes. Its soldiers now must move in small groups using cars to get from place to place, and the last thing they wish to attempt is displaying tanks in the open. NO, ISIS is not dead. I am certain crazy young men and women continue to head for Iraq in order to die for God or a cause. Unfortunately, the only cause they will be able to die for is -Death.

The good news is that Iraq lacks forests or jungles in which soldiers can hide. It is wide open for planes to bomb and destroy. Now, comes the hard part. Can an Iraq government emerge in which Sunnis and Shiites work together? That solution can only come from these groups and President Obama can not enforce US will upon these groups. The air force has done its job, now it is up to Iraqis to end the violence.
