Dark Days Ahead For Bibi

Recent reports from top Israel officials indicate that back in 2010, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was ready to launch air attacks on Iran, but was held back by top Israel generals. Goes to show there are Israelis who think like the black dude from Africa. Imagine seeking to resolve issues via diplomacy rather than through bombs! Senator Harry Reid just joined those supporting President Obama and his quest for peace.

Ironically, President Hassan Rouhani in Iran has problems with war hawks, ready to match Bibi bomb to bomb. Rouhani told the people of Iran, “we consider this agreement a stating point for moving forward” toward peace in the region and the world. According to brave warriors such as Ted Cruz of Scott Walker or Marco Rubio, failure to demand bombs is a mark of the coward. As I recall, none of these “brave warriors” has ever served in the US military. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill who was attacked for negotiating with Communist dictator Joseph Stalin respond with: “Jaw, Jaw is better than War, War.”

Erdogan-I Demand Power!

For many years President Recep Erdogan was the prime minister of Turkey, and he did a few good things about assisting the economy to become more modern. He did a few good things about checking the power of the military. He did assist Turkey on its march to become a modern society. But,alas, POWER soon became the name of his game. He wants POWER and he wants to crush any and all factors in Turkey that prevent him from having POWER. Just last year he was working to have Kurds become an integral part of Turkish society. But, alas, his desire for POWER led to an election that resulted in his political party losing its majority. So, what has he done since that event?

He launched attacks on Kurdish military units fighting in Syria and Iraq against ISIS. Beating ISIS will not gain him any votes, so the hell with that game. However, there are Turks who do not like the Kurds-a minority in Turkey–so fight them and call a quick election in hope of gaining COMPLETE POWER!

Too bad Erdogan is not head of North Korea -now that is one country in which the ruler does have COMPLETE POWER!

Refugees Seek Refuge

They set sail,not on ships, but all too often in flimsy boats that barely make it across the Mediterranean. They walk across areas of Europe heading for the tunnel that allows one to actually gain entrance with feet to the safe shores of England. They are refugees. Since the dawn of humanity when our ancestors walked out of Africa headed for all areas on this planet, the refugee is the person seeking a new home, a new opportunity for a better life. Between 1880-1924 about twenty five million people from Europe arrived on the shores of America, only to be met by those insisting there simply was not enough room,and they would seek to take jobs away from native born Americans.

Last week about 20,000 arrived in Europe setting off the alarm bells of those who fear their jobs will be taken away.So,how to deal with these people?

Step one is to distribute them across the European continent.

Step two is to invest in Africa and create jobs. A person with a job is not seeking a new land.

Tragedy Of Middle East

There has been an ongoing tragedy in the Middle East for over seventy years. It has to do with reactions of Muslim nations to their fellow Muslims. After the forced or voluntary departure of Muslims from the new state of Israel, not a single Arab/Muslim nation would allow their fellow Muslims to become citizens of the land in which they were now living. They have spent the next seventy years as aliens in Muslim societies. Today, over two million Syrians are now refugees in a Muslim society. They are not allowed to become a citizen, they are denied opportunities for work, for a role in society.

Syrians are NOT welcomed into Muslim societies anymore than Palestinians were or are. They live on the fringes of society. A Syrian who enters Sweden is allowed to become a citizen and enjoy the benefits of that role. But, not a single Muslim society offers Muslim refugees the same right. The question is why don’t Muslim societies integrate Muslim refugees?

So, What About Iraq?

We are now experiencing the resurrection of the triumphant trio of Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld. In the new Republican narrative, these men were not only responsible for the overthrow of evil, terrible Saddam Hussein, but they saved the world from the bad man’s nuclear or chemical weapons of destruction. It was due to the intelligence and bravery of George Bush that peace and prosperity were restored to the people of Iraq. Alas, then appeared the black dude from Africa, whose blunders led to the rise of al-Qaeda, ISIS, and you name the other evil people.

1. It was the dynamic trio who appointed Nouri al-Maliki to the position of Prime Minister. It was this man who transformed the Sunnis who had worked with American forces into the enemy of the Iraq government.

2. The success of the so-called, Surge, depended upon cooperation of Sunnis. Guess who ended that cooperation.

3. President Obama DID offer to maintain US forces. BUT, he refused to allow American troops to be subject to Iraq law. THAT was the reason they left.

I await Jeb Bush publicly saying he was ready to have American forces placed under Iraq law.

Donald Has Some Ideas

It is now clear that Donald Trump DOES have solutions to rejecting the Iran nuclear deal and how to handle events in the Middle East. First, Donald is clear that accepting a nuclear deal with Iran is the first step toward a “nuclear disaster.” He promises to rip up any agreement with Iran if elected. I do assume he understands this agreement is with SIX nations, and if the US abandons the agreement, the other five can enter trade agreements with Iran. I assume he understands that Russia will sell anti-missile systems to Iran.

Donald also wants to take over Iraq oil fields, and is willing to send US troops into Iraq to fight ISIS. We get the oil, and we keep the money. What exactly then happens in Iraq, who the hell cares! I believe this step is the greatest recruiting step for ISIS, but Donald is not worried.

He also discussed his anger at Saudi Arabia, another country he intends to clean up.

We now know that Donald has a plan. At least he has one. Which other Republican candidate can make that statement?

World Terrorist Cup

The entire world and most Muslims are getting tired of the chaos in the Middle East,Somalia, Libya and Nigeria. It is time to organize an all-Muslim World Cup on who is the best terrorist. Of course, participants would agree that the group which comes out on top, would become the acknowledged top dog in terrorism. Oops, I forgot that Muslims do not like dogs. How about the top guerrilla?

1. Naturally, there would be shooting contests. Of course, one team against the other team.Last man standing, wins.

2. We could have a contest in which teams compete in rocket firing.

3. How about which team that first destroys a city?

4. Of course a main feature would be which group can produce the most suicide bombers.

5. The finale would be which team that most quickly destroys itself!

On The War Gambit

There are voices in America seeking to resort to war against Iran instead of peace with Iran. Democrat Congressman Alcee Hastings wants Congress to authorize war power to the President if Iran does not behave by agreeing with our demands. On one hand, most Republican Congressmen insist that President Obama refuses to adhere to the Constitution which clearly states the rights of wealthy people are what the Revolution was all about,while on the other hand, they want to empower Obama to wage war. What exactly would occur in the Middle East if the US attacked Iran?

1.Hezbollah in Lebanon would send 30,000 missiles at Israel. The Dome, built with money from Obama, you know, the guy who hates Israel, would deflect 90% of the missiles. A few thousand would hit Israel and kill thousands of Israelis-Jews and Muslims.

2.Suicide bombers would be blowing themselves up all over Israel,thousands of Jews would die.

3. If you believe chaos is current in Syria, just wait until this event.

4. If you think chaos is current in Iraq,just wait for this event.

5. Welcome to suicide bombers in America!

A Jewish View Of Iran

Larry Cohler-Esses, correspondent for the Jewish newspaper, Forward, spent seven days in Iran. He talked with officials as well as ordinary Iranians. “Far from the stereotype of a Fascist Islamic State, I found a dynamic push and pull between a theocratic government and its often resisting and reluctant people.” Most Iranians distinguished between the policies of Israel and the issue of Jews. They did not display hatred of Jews, but like many people who love Israel, but disagree with its government, they want peace, not war.

He also noted the fact there are somewhere between 9,000 to 20,000 Jews in Iran.They can walk the streets of Tehran wearing a Yarmulka.just about the only safe city for Americans in the Middle East is -Tehran!

Jimmy Carter Is Ill

Jimmy Carter has cancer and it is possible that he will die. This man has been vilified more than any other politician in American history. As of this date, Jimmy Carter remains the only American president who assisted Israel in attaining a peace treaty with an Arab nation. He worked to bring together Israel and Egypt and through his diligence and care, a peace treaty was accomplished. And, what is the current reaction of Israel and many American Jews–Jimmy Carter hates Jews and he hates Israel. Why? Because Carter has worked for peace that includes respecting the rights of Palestinians. In the world of AIPAC, one must blindly obey whatever Bibi Netanyahu says or does or the result is–YOU HATE JEWS AND YOU HATE ISRAEL!

We salute Carter as a great American. One day historians will give him credit for working for peace, for making human rights an important focus of American foreign policy and for devoting his post presidency to humanitarian efforts, not to make money!
