You Spy, We Spy

The German weekly, Der Spiegel reports that Israel spies spied on American Secretary of State, John Kerry last year while he was engaged in talking with Palestinian and Egyptian leaders in san effort to bring peace to the Middle East. As you know, Israel is very concerned what people say about their land. After all, Kerry made some outrageous comments warning Israel that its policies of refusing to negotiate or compromise might result in creation of a one state society in which Muslims were second class citizens, or, in plain English, an apartheid state. It is forbidden to even mention the “A” word among Israelis or their supporters in America. In light of this news about spying on allies, this blog proposes:

1. An international conference of spies from nations which consider themselves to be friends with one another.

2. Establishment of systems that can only be used by spies who are from friendly nations. These systems will facilitate spying and eliminate the guess work.

3. An exchange program in which spies from one nation will spend time spying for the nation they spied upon in order to spy against their own nation.

4. A “you can blow up one of our facilities if we can blow up one of your facilities” exchange program. Let’s keep things fair.

5. Eventually we can create a “Spy Nation” which consists of spies from around the world. Why not just them their own nation!

Fruits Of Gaza Invasion

For the moment, only the moment, guns of Gaza have grown silent. For the moment, only the moment, no one is dying in Gaza due to gunfire. There is no doubt, the guns of August will again resume. There is no doubt that others will die. After all, no one can be allowed to live who is a terrorist. Let me make clear that the government of Israel has every right to send troops into areas from whence come death and destruction to the people of Israel. It is a given that ANY nation has the right to wipe out sources of danger to its people. However, there is another question: what comes now? Yesterday in Jerusalem, a bus loaded with Jewish people was subject to an attack. A large yellow excavator driven by a Palestinian turned its shovel and launched it against the bus. One passenger was killed and a few wounded. An Israeli policeman happened to be on the scene and he fired, killed the driver and ended the attack. For the moment, peace reigns in Jerusalem. Just for the moment. However:

1. There will be other such suicide attacks.

2. For each attack upon Jews in Israel there will be retaliatory attacks upon Muslim Palestinians.

3. At some point the situation will escalate. Vigilantes from Israel will attack Palestinians in revenge.

4. For each Jewish revenge attack will come a Muslim Palestinian attack.

5. Finally, the IDF will cordon off areas of East Jerusalem and blast away at centers of terrorists.

And, so on and so on.

Until both sides reach an agreement to establish a Palestinian state!

OOPS, I Guess We Did Spy On You!

The Central Intelligence Agency was founded after disbandment of the World War II OSS spy group. The theory behind establishing a spy agency was to provide intelligence regarding events that happened throughout the world. In other words, the ÇIA was allegedly the eyes of America, and supposedly could provide information as to what would occur in the world. So, what is the record of this organization?

1. It organized the overthrow of a democratically elected government in Iran in 1953 which initiated the process of Islamic militants gaining power in that country.

2. It overthrew the democratically elected government of Guatemala.

3. It was completely wrong in 1961 about the desire of Cubans to overthrow the government of Fidel Castro.

4. It was completely wrong about Vietnam.

5. It was completely wrong about the Cuba Missile crisis.

6. It was completely wrong about desire of Chinese Communist government leaders to seek cooperation with the US.

7. It never anticipated the collapse of the Soviet Union.

8. It was disastrously wrong about supplying weapons to Islamic militants in Afghanistan.

So, what about the current fiasco. CIA Director, John Brennan, apologized to the Senate Intelligence Committee because CIA agents hacked the email accounts of staff members attached to the Senate committee. According to a CIA spokesperson, “Some CIA employees acted in a manner in contrast to the common understanding reached between the ÇIA and the committee in 2009 regarding access to the RDINET.

Question: why did these CIA employees violate the law? Did they refuse to obey CIA leaders?

When Will Hamas Ever Learn?

The topic of, “who is to blame for the carnage in Gaza” undoubtedly will be a major source of discussion and the media in the coming days, weeks, and months. Who fired the first shot? Or, who began the slaughter of the innocent? In reality, those who support Palestinians will blame Israel, and Israel will blame Hamas. Frankly, at this point such discussion engages people in the wrong issue at the wrong time. The only issue at this juncture is to end the slaughter of the innocent. There was a 72 hour ceasefire which was designed to lower anger as well as lower the number killed and wounded. So, what do Hamas soldiers do? They decide to attack Israel soldiers and kidnap one. Another example of the ineptness of Hamas leaders. Once gaining control of Gaza they should have focused their entire energy into transforming this piece of desert into a thriving community. A leader of Hamas has only one thing on his agenda–fighting and killing Israelis and destroying Israel.

At no point do Hamas leaders inhabit the world of reality. Israel will not disappear. Hey fellow, Israel has ATOMIC BOMBS. Do you jokers doubt for a moment that an Israeli government confronted with destruction would avoid using those weapons of mass destruction? The nightmare for Hamas is that Israel WOULD be confronted with losing. Such an event would result in mass destruction of Hamas and all living in Gaza. It is time for those who lead Hamas to wake up to reality. Israel is here to stay. You guys have no such guarantee. Switch from weapons of destruction to weapons of economics. Create a modern economically successful Gazas and Muslims will flock to your banner.

ISIL Keeps Moving South

The past few months have witnessed conclusion of a process that began years ago– the slow disintegration of what we term to be the nation of-Iraq. Ah, recall the pride of George Bush and Barack Obama as American forces withdrew from Iraq and left a nation with a “democratically elected” government, at least that was the boast of George Bush. Yes, we had defeated evil Saddam Hussein, of course, he used to be our ally during the 1980s when he fought against evil Iran, but times change and who we term to be an “evil doer” also changes. So, America left Iraq which contained an army of over 150,000 men armed with American weapons of war. Of course, since Shiite leader Nouri al-Maliki was now in charge, the first order of day, once the Americans were gone, was to rid the Army of Sunni soldiers and officers. It was time for -REVENGE- against the evil followers of the evil Saddam Hussein. Together with ridding the armed forces of Sunnis, Nouri also wanted to make certain that HIS BOYS were in charge. After all, if MY BOYs are in charge, we control money, we control jobs, and we control corruption.

A few months ago, Islamist soldiers numbering under 15,000 stormed into Iraq, confronted the 150,000 man army and sent them fleeing south toward Baghdad. A new Islamic state was proclaimed and any Iraq soldiers were no where to be seen in northern regions. Kurdish soldiers appeared in several cities. The past weekend, ISIL attacked the Kurdish held Zumar and Sinjar allowing them to hoist the Black Flag of triumph. Perhaps, someone will inform me why an Army of 150,000 armed with modern weapons cannot defeat militants who are fewer than twenty thousand in number?

How about sending in the Sunni Awakening Councils?

Fires Rage In Northern California

Fires are raging in northern areas of California as the state confronts new and more powerful forces of nature that are ripping through vast areas of the United States. High temperatures, severe drought, high winds and thunder storms combine to alter normal temperatures in the state. Government spokesmen believe the scale and intensity of “fire activity is what the state normally sees in September.” It is clear that California has entered a new phase in weather. I decided to check with the noted Climate Scientist, Congressman Paul Ryan whose analysis of what causes weather change is undoubtedly among the most read in America.

M: So, Congressman Ryan, what is your take on the fire storms in northern California?
R: Weather is weather. It comes and it goes.
M: So, you do not believe that our climate is experiencing change?
R: There has always been fires in California. So, why get excited because there are fires?
M: But, Congressman Ryan, these fires are of a new intensity.
R: Ho hum, we Republicans are not going to give into hysteria. There have always been fire storms, today there are fire storms, so why worry?
M: So, the Republican party is not worried?
R: I have been informed by reliable commentators on Fox News that fires have been set by Democrats in order to frighten the American people. It is a Fire Conspiracy of the Obama Administration to frighten us into allocating money that should go to reducing taxes on our wealthy job creators!
M: But, if you hired more fire fighters, wouldn’t that create more jobs?
R: OK, finally you have made your point. Perhaps, I can check with Republican strategists how to create more fires in order to benefit manufacturers of fire equipment!

Libya Gets Into The Act

I finally have grasped the reason why intense fighting has broken out in Libya. This intrepid reporter interviewed some Libyan fighters.

M: Sir, why are Libyans now fighting with one another?
L: Frankly, I do not like these other Libyans and decided to attack them.
M: But, they are fellow Libyans.
L: Look, let me be perfectly honest. Pick up a newspaper, follow TV, get on social media, and what do you encounter? Story after story about fighting in Gaza. Not a word about we Libyans.
M: Are you saying that Libyans feel neglected by the media?
L: It just is not fair for these Jews and Gazan Muslims to hog the daily media.
M: In other words, if the media would devote more space to your little war, this would make you feel better?
L: Absolutely, do you have any understanding how marginalized we feel?
M: Frankly, I never realized how those Muslims and Jews insult the fighters of Libya.
L: Well, before they begin killing one another, they might stand back and consider our feelings.
M: I feel terrible. My blog has ignored you guys when you kill one another.
L: Perhaps, if blogs spent time describing how we kill one another, we might be inclined to hold back a bit.
M: You have my word of honor to devote space and time to the killings in Libya!

Sean Hannity Out Foxed

The benefit of being a commentator on Fox News is knowing that whatever you say, no one will ever contradict your version of reality. Sean Hannity was furious that Russell Brand displayed a YouTube attack on his coverage of the Middle East. It is now official policy of Fox News that any negative comment regarding actions by Israel Defense Forces will send that person to a session in the corner wearing a dunce hat. Sean decided to respond to this vicious assault on his intelligence. He invited three people to his program whose task was to nod their heads whenever he opened his mouth. Sean made clear that Brand was a moron, heads nodded. Sean then launched into a defense of Israel actions in Gaza. Oh my God! One head did not nod in agreement. Geraldo Rivera, for some inexplicable reason supported Brand comments. He actually said: “I think there are two sides of the story that are not being told. You have seen what happened at the UN school, Sean. We can no longer ignore what has happened.”

There are unconfirmed reports Sean Hannity will spend some time in a hospital. It will be a Fox run hospital. Only Fox news is shown to patients. Under no condition is anyone allowed in the hospital who actually believes there are TWO sides to a story!! God bless you, Sean, never abandon the faith. There is only ONE side of the story, and it is the one offered by Saint Murdoch. Never abandon the faith, Sean. In the end, Fox News will prove you were right all along.

As for that Rivera person, who knows what fate awaits him??

So, Who Cares About Children?

Recent polls reveal that most Americans do not believe our nation has a moral obligation to assist those who are fleeing from persecution or violence in other lands. Figures indicate 53% do not want such folk in the good old USA while 44% open their arms to the afflicted. At age 83, I am quite aware that during the time period, 1880-1924 about TWENTY MILLION people fled from Europe and sought refuge in the United States of America. My parents left due to violence and persecution. In 1920 about one in four Americans was either an immigrant or child of one. Today, the figure is about 7%. Throughout the 19th century America was home to millions seeking refuge from poverty or violence in other parts of the world, although most came from European nations. The 53% saying, “No,” most probably are descended from those who arrived due to violence and poverty. They now spit in the eyes of great, great grandparents as unwelcome people. Figures show that 52% do not feel any compassion for the thousands of children seeking to escape beatings, rape or death in Central America although 46% display some sense of religious or moral feelings.

I understand fears of Americans that immigrants will “take their jobs” or create economic burdens. In reality, America desperately NEEDS immigrants. They are a source of workers who contribute to the Social Security fund as well as customers for products. Among the key issues facing America is how to handle a declining work force since without money from this group, the Social Security fund will run out of money by 2033. Of course, there are those such as myself who believe America MUST open its arms to people confronting violence and persecution. If not us, who else? WE are the nation that has always welcomed such people. If not now, when?

It’s Friday, So Here Is The Daily Benghazi Report

It is Friday, August 1, 2014, and we recognize that no one reading this blog would enjoy proceeding on their daily work or social tasks without benefit of the latest report on Benghazi. The House Intelligence Committee, led by Republicans, is going to declassify its study of the infamous Benghazi attack. This report will make clear that NO order was ever given to ANYONE about STANDING DOWN. The report makes clear there were lapses in security, but no order was issued by then Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, to result in the death of our ambassador or personnel. The House Committee makes clear that personnel “acted bravely.” However, we still have the NEW House Select Committee with a budget of $3.3 million to conduct still another investigation into nothing. We find amazing that not a single House investigation has ever been proposed to examine decisions made in the invasion of Iraq which resulted in death for over 4,000 Americans and wounding of 40,000.

As far as Republicans are concerned the death of AN American diplomat is more significant than the death of thousands of Americans. In an attempt to assist the new investigation, let me point out to Republicans:

1. The word, Benghazi, consists of two words–the name, Ben, and the word, ghazi or gaze.

2. The real issue to investigate is who is this: BEN?

3. The other issue to investigate is–what was Ben gazing at?

Please discover the answers to these questions so Americans can sleep peacefully tonight!
