In Defense Of Muslims

There is one issue that conservatives and liberals agree upon and that is the assumption there is something inherently wrong about the Muslim religion. Liberals like Bill Maher or conservatives like Bill O’Reilly insist that fundamental to the Muslim religion is a belief in violence and death. I assume this view also agrees such attitudes are not part of the Christian or Jewish religions. At some point in any discussion about the Middle East an American expert on religions will inform people that only the Muslim religion leads to violence. Let us examine the record.

This is how religions in the 20th century behaved:

1. Muslims did participate in the murder of about one million Armenians in Turkey.

2. Catholic Fascist Italy murdered a few hundred thousand people in Ethiopia.

3. Catholics in Spain murdered over million fellow Catholics.

4. Christian Nazi Germany murdered ove twenty million human beings. Adolf Hitler was born a Catholic, lived as a Catholic and died as one.

5. Fascist Italy during World War I murdered at least a million people.

6. Christians in Rwanda in Africa murdered about 800,000 people.

7. Buddhists in Japan murdered at least five million people. Oh, suicide bombers killed about ten thousand Americans.

8. Oh, there were no Muslims in Cambodia when one million people were murdered.

9. Oh, in Christian Soviet Union the government murdered over ten million people.

10. Then again non-Muslim Mao tse-tung murdered over ten million.

The evidence is overwhelming, the Muslim religion can not match Christians when it comes to violence and death!

Crazy Times In Congress

I suspect that the infamous letter from 47 members of the Republican party that was sent to Iran is the first time in American history that a freshman Senator, led the way in American foreign policy.This stunt was the brainchild of Senator Cotton of the great state of Arkansas. The essential argument of these Republicans is that President Obama, once again is “trampling the Constitution” by making executive decisions. Republican congressmen insist the actions of Barack Obama have never previously been employed by any real American president. Look at the record:

In 1975 Republican President Ford signed an executive agreement known as the Helsinki Accords without consent of the Senate.

In 1982 Republican President, St.Ronald Reagan signed the US-USSR Strategic Arms Reduction agreement.

In 1984, St. Ronald signed a Nuclear Agreement with COMMUNIST CHINA!

And so on and so on. Thousands of such presidential executive agreements have been made. Senator Rand Paul told Secretary of State John Kerry that President Obama was “trampling the Constitution”and we “want you to obey the law.”

If one is ignorant of history than one is simply ignorant.

So What To Do About Ukraine?

The situation in Ukraine does not at this moment offer many happy policies for the people of this nation nor does it suggest that Western powers have uncovered a plan that will halt Vladimir Putin without risking the possibility of open war. So, what are the options in this area of the world:

1. Continue present policies and the “rebels”- who really are Russian troops in disguise– will solidify their control of eastern Ukraine.

2. Send arms to Ukraine and it might result in halting eastern forces in their tracks.

3. Send in defensive weapons and this might aid in causing a stalemate.

4. Send in offensive weapons and Putin will freak out and simply send in more Russian troops and weapons.

5. Embargo any and all economic relations with Russia and see what happens.

6. Send in NATO forces and see what Putin does.

Frankly, I lean to economic war which would disrupt NATO nations but not as much as it does Russia.

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!

Preview Of Bibi Speech

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will give a speech tonight. We offer our readers a preview of what he will say. At least fifty members of Congress will not hear this speech because they prefer to boycott than to listen to a FOREIGNER give advice to Americans about their foreign policy. In the entire history of this nation this represents the largest number of congressmen who deliberately boycotters a speech by a foreign dignitary. Anyway, here is what Bibi will say.

1. I am one tough dude.

2. Barack Obama is not one tough dude.

3. John Kerry, who was awarded medals for bravery in the Vietnam war, has caved into Iran demands in a cowardly manner.

4. No deal with Iran ensures peace.

5. Since Iran will not have been provided with an alternative to peaceful use of atomic energy, there remains only one alternative–bomb the hell out of Iran.

6. Since Israel lacks the type of bombs that could penetrate Iran’s defenses, we need American bombers to blast away.

7. Israel stands for peace and that is why Israel uses force to end problems.

8. First Iranian terrorists came for opponents to democracy, then they came for Jews in Iran, then they will come for Israel,and then they will come for Europe, and then they will come for the United States of America.

As I said, this is sone tough dude.

Denmark–Blacks Come To Safety!

A SINGLE JEW WAS KILLED IN DENMARK, and Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu urged Jews in Denmark to seek safety and freedom in Israel. I thought if that is the criteria for safety, Denmark might offer safety and freedom to Blacks living in the United States of America.

We in Denmark know that if your skin is black and you decide to walk the streets of an American city there is a strong likelihood that some policeman will halt you, strip search you, and if he does not like your attitude then death might be your end to this encounter. We in Denmark enjoy safe streets and a safe environment so we offer any and all African Americans to come to Denmark and be safe. Just think, when your little boy goes to play in the park and waves a toy gun, he will not be shot down. If your son walks in the street instead of the sidewalk, we will not shoot him. So, come to the safety of Denmark and leave death and poverty behind.

Oh, the invitation is also offered to Hispanics. PLUS, we do not have a Republican party to shut down your government and allow terrorists to murder at will!

Oh Dem Islamic Terrorists!

The Muslim people of this world include nearly two billion humans who devote their days to work, to prayer and the normal activities of families. At tops, about 1% of those who are Muslim engage in some form of violence toward other people. Of course, Muslims have never been able to match the violence of Christians like Germans who murdered over thirty million human beings, but, we only refer to these murderers as Nazis, not as Christian Germans. A coalition in Austria of the Social Democratic Party and the People’s Party has passed laws that will monitor behavior of Muslims in the country. These laws require that imams must be able to speak German. The Koran must be standardized in the German language, and no Islamic organization can receive funding from foreign sources.

I was raised in the United States of America and in the synagogue we prayed in the Hebrew language, not in English. Many of the Conservative Rabbis were from Europe and some actually did not speak English. Somehow we managed to live in peace and did not disturb the people of America. Such laws as these in Austria are insulting not only to Muslims, but to all fair minded people!

Decline Of Democracy In Russia

My father was born and raised in the world of Czarist Russia that was ruled by an emperor. After the czar was sent to his death, the people of Russia then endured seventy five years of brutal dictatorship under Communists. It is estimated that Communist rulers murdered at least ten million RUSSIANS in their gulags. One would expect that after this horror of death, the people of Russia would seek to inhabit a world in which democracy was the norm. Instead, most Russians support the policies of President Vladimir Putin whose goal is to enforce a dictatorship that either kills or sends to jail anyone who dares to oppose this regime. Boris Nemstov fought for democracy and organized mass demonstrations against Putin. Yesterday he was walking across a bridge in Moscow when suddenly a group of assassins blasted him with six shots. He is now dead. Oh, according to the Putin government the cause of this death was: people seeking to destabilize Russia by seeking to blame problems on Putin, or, Muslim terrorists. Who else?

Latest figures reveal that 68% of people in Russia support Vladimir Putin while only 15% oppose him. There is sad news that Nemstov is dead. There is every worse news that most Russians don’t give a damn. After all, Putin has gotten back the Crimea and caused death and destruction in Ukraine.

Weep for the people of Russia who seek dictatorship over democracy.

Wither England?

Current polls reveal that the United Kingdom might elect a Labor government to replace the current Conservative government of David Cameron. Among the issues confronting any new government in this nation is what should be the program to change to present to people. Among the topics of this challenge are:

1. How does one deal with immigration from other European nations? All members of the EU must allow immigrants to enter.

2. What type of economic model should be pursued? Should England pursue more central government initiative or devolve power to local entities?

3. Should England pursue a policy that witnesses greater power to the central government of the European Union?

4. Should England opt out of the European Union?

5. Should the government push for a higher minimum wage?

In other words does England need a government that confronts income inequality?

Wait and see the end result.

Muslims Unite For Jews

There are groups in Israel and the United States which seek to portray the lives of Jews living in Europe is a fearful one. AICPAC and other members of the Jewish Lobby in America are producing films which claim that to be a Jew in a European country is to be in a similar situation that confronted Jews during the 1930s who were living in Germany, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urges European Jews to come to Israel and be safe. Of course, on the other hand, he frightens Israel Jews with dire stories of mass attacks from Iran that would destroy their country. A bit confusing. On one hand, Jews confront death in Europe and Jews confront death in Israel so come to Israel!

In the city of Oslo in Norway, about ONE THOUSAND MUSLIMS came together to take a stand against anti-semitism in their land. They wanted to make clear to the 1,000 Norwegian Jews that Muslims were their friends. They gathered around a synagogue making clear their views: “Humanity is Me, and We are hear to-we demonstrate that!” Muslims for Jews. I wonder if there are Muslims for Jews in Israel??
