New King In Saudi Arabia

There is a topic that no American president will ever discuss about the so-called “War On Terrorism.” Most terrorists obtained their idea about hatred of the West while studying ion a Madrassa. These “schools”are led by an imam who lacks any other education than having studied the Koran, and few of these teachers have any knowledge of constitutions or human rights. Of course, the, money for these hotbeds of violence was provided by the King of Saudi Arabia. You know, the nation that is allegedly our “ally” in the fight against terrorism. Saudi King Abdullah died yesterday and now he is followed by King Salman, naturally his name is much longer, but who cares. What can we expect from a King of Saudi Arabia?

1. Beheading of people will NOT cease. Steal a fig and lose your head.

2. Women will continue not being able to go to school with males.

3. Women will continue not being able to drive a car.

4. Money will continue to flow to those who hate the West.

5. Say the wrong word and get 1000 lashes on your back.

Unfortunately for Kings of Saudi Arabia, the bad guys will soon be in the land which rewards their behavior and guess who will confront bombs?

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.

UK, Guardian” “Snow And Ice Alert”

I will skip this story.

France, Connexion: “Should We Say, Je Suis Ahmed?”

Heck, add whatever you want after, Je Suis!

Norway, Norway Post: “Norwegians Don’t Shop On Sundays”

Nor, do they go to church on Sundays.

Canada, Toronto Star: “News You May Have Missed”

Republicans were silent one night this week. Guess why?

Russia, Moscow Times: “Diesel Ban”

I guess that means no diesel cocktails tonight.

Alberto Nisman Is Dead

Alberto Nisman is dead. There is no doubt his name is unknown in the United States of America. But, this brave Argentinian prosecutor was working to uncover a plot by his government to make secret arrangements with there government of Iran in order to prevent the real story emerging how Iranian send terrorists into Argentine in 1994 to blow up a Jewish center and cause the death of 85 people. The government of President Fernandez undoubtedly offered Iran protection against prosecution of their terrorists in return for trade agreements. Nisman was ready to present his case to the Congress of Argentine when two nights ago his body was found with a gun on the floor. Outside were guards who supposedly protected him against those seeking to murder a brave man whose only thought was the truth, regardless of who suffered from revealing that information.,

President Fernandez admits that it was not a suicide. However, she insists that her government had nothing to do with the murder. She claims there is a plot to smear her name. The only “plot” is the one of the government of Argentine to trade the lives of Argentine Jews for money. Hopefully, the Argentine Congress will allow the Nisman report to be published!

Bibi Behaves Like Bibi

There is no doubt that future historians will regard the foreign policy of President Barack Obama in the Middle East as a story of failed opportunities to move toward peace in the region. From day one of his administration he has bowed before Israel’s lobby, AIPAC, whose members are theoretically loyal Americans, but in reality serve the purposes of those Israelis refusing to seek peace with Palestinians. Let me make perfectly clear that the interests of Israel lie on pursuing the path of peace with Palestinians. Let me also make perfectly clear that Palestinian leaders have turned down one after another proposals for peace from those Israel leaders who DID seek such an end for their nation.

With the rise of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the road to peace has become increasingly difficult. The nonstop seizure of land by Jewish settlers makes any effort to gain peace very problematic. To make matters worse, Bibi Netanyahu has blatantly interfered in the affairs of America by supporting the Republican Party. So, there is no surprise that House Speaker John Boehner issued an invitation for the prime minister of Israel to address Congress. This has shocked the White House. Bernadette Meehan of the NSC issued a statement. “We do not see heads of state or candidates in close proximity to new elections so as to avoid the appearance of influencing elections in a foreign nation.” Actually, the Prime Minister of Israel had no intention of seeing the President of the United States. This is an unheard of insult to the leader of America. Ordinarily, a head of state seeks permission from another head of state prior to talking with local political leaders.

Score one for AIPAC which will undoubtedly raise millions for Republicans in the next AMERICAN election!

Ukraine, Another Sad Story

As the child of a father who spent his life in the fields of Ukraine, that nation has always provided me a warm spot of concern. Of course, being aJew was not the best thing in a land in which members of that religion all too often found a grave at the hands of Germans or members of Ukraine militia who hated all Russians and Yids. But, a Ukraine farmer did save my pop’s life so I must have some warm feelings for those Ukrainians who now suffer at the hands of Vladimir Putin and his buddies chanting hatred of Ukraine’s government. Ukraine is a complex place in which the majority of people hate Russians, but there are also many who recall with fondness the good old days of Soviet communism. Vladimir Putin has sent thousands of Russian soldiers, oops, Russian “volunteers” have crossed the border in order to protect Ukrainians from their own government.

President Porshenko now estimates that at least a thousand Soviet, oops, I mean, “Russian” soldiers with modern tanks and weapons are fighting alongside rebel groups. He also notes the presence of tanks and artillery. This is part of the Putin plan to seize as much of the Ukraine for the Soviet, oops, I mean, the nation of Russia. No NATO troops will arrive, and the task of maintaining the land of Ukraine is only in the hands of Ukrainians. Frankly, it is doubtful if they can prevent a division of their land. Such is the situation in dear old Ukraine.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I record what others do not.

Some speak with truth if mouth filled with food.

Our lives are dominated by self inflicted goals.

Some walk by me in coffee shop and gaze at me who is writing.

Never reject an act of kindness from another.

Today we live, tomorrow we die–eventually.

Some read with deep concentration.

Fear is the norm in 2015.

No more joyful sight than children checking out books in library.

I am a bigot, I expect an Asian girl to be smart.

YES, Islamophobia DOES EXIST!

Turkish President Recep Erdogan made clear to those attending the Organization of Islamic Cooperation that Muslims DO confront a world in which being a member of the Muslim religion ensures that leaders of western nations will blame them for all problems in the world. “We want our friends in the West to see that Islamophobia has become a serious problem.” No honest person can disagree with this comment. People in the Christian West insist that Muslims are violent. This belief is from members of the Christian religion whose German people murdered over TWENTY FIVE MILLION PEOPLE DURING WORLD WAR II! And, Christians claim that Muslims are violent! Oh, I forgot that Muslims killed three thousand on 9/11. And, some Muslims have beheaded a dozen people. FACTS prove that Christians are the most violent people in the world. I can just hear someone arguing those Christians existed sixty years ago. Add up all those murdered by Muslims and they do not equal the 30,000 Americans killed by guns last year.

Erdogan went on to warn fellow Muslims they must rethink their behaviors. “When the Muslim world remains silent and every sect stands behind their own sympathizers, others are stepping in, terrorists and modern Lawrences.” He was referring to Lawrence of Arabia. I ordinarily blast the behavior of budding dictator, Recep Erdogan, but this is a refreshing honest comment on his part.

Enough with blaming ALL Muslims for the actions of SOME Muslims!

Putin Land Is Always Right

I doubt if members of the Republican Party of the USA recognize how their behavior towards President Obama is similar to the behavior of our Great and Wise Leader, Vladimir Putin. Putin and his lackeys are upset at the American leader because he is supporting the right of people in Ukraine to have their own form of government. Putin is also very angry that anyone, and when he says, anyone, that means anyone, would dare to challenge his actions about anything. His Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, made clear that the real terrorist regime in the world is –AMERICA! According to Lavrov: “The Americans have chosen a path toward confrontation, and do not evaluate their own steps critically. Yesterday’s address by President Obama stated that the central principle of the United States philosophy is based on one thing: that we we are right and everybody has to recognize that.”

Ironically, there is some truth in what Lavrov said. For over a decade American leaders insist they are right and all Muslim are wrong. However, Mr. Lavrov would make a stronger point if he also said that everything he charges America with doing is similar to everything that his boss, Vladimir Putin is doing. Vladimir Putin is just as right as American leaders who claim to always be on the side of God as they blunder into one land after another. How about Putin and Obama taking a lunch together to discuss how they agree?

Oh Dem New York Cops

I assume that any New York City member of the police department will turn his back on this story. It is just another of those cop hating liberals who spends his life seeking to defame those guardians of our lives who happen to be cops. Actually, I spent years teaching police about the history of crime. David Atali is a member of the police force who is stationed at the World Trade Center. He is an Orthodox Jew and has permission not to work on Saturdays. This definitely is a major crime which apparently does not please his fellow officers. He apparently made some cops furious. Oh no, they did not employ a choke hold on this man of evil. They simply greeted him with a “Heil Hitler” and “dirty Jew” comment in order to make clear they did not like the fact he does not work on Saturday. They even left a sign on his locker which said: “this sign is covered with bacon and grease.”

The real question is what is happening to members of the police force in this land. A FEW behave in ways that violate their duty to citizens. They employ a choke hold because a black skinned man is selling cigarettes and then become furious when called to account. They turn their backs on Mayor de Blasio who has the nerve to urge restraint on their part when encountering blacks or Hispanics and avoid killing them. Just another story of how SOME cops behave. And, most probably most cops will turn their backs on the mayor if he makes a comment about this tale of stupidity.

Just Another Dead American

Another American citizen died yesterday. There is not any important story to tell about Kaleb Ales. He was two years old. He was sitting in his parent’s car while they were engaged in moving boxes around as part of their desire to move to another home. He was just sitting in a car. So, how could any two year old wind up dead? Unfortunately, for Kaleb he was sitting in a car in the United States of America. In most societies on this planet, it would be virtually impossible for any two year old to wind up dead in a car. He was living in a land in which there are over THREE HUNDRED MILLION GUNS! Yes, this is God fearing America in which every person has the right to carry around a gun. If everyone has that right, surely it includes any child in this blessed land of guns.

For the record, Kaleb was not murdered by one of those Muslim terrorists. He simply opened a tiny door, found a gun and shot himself. After all, he was living in a civilized land. According to Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualigtier, “Sometimes bad things happen.” No one is guilty of any crime. That damn little two year old had apparently never been taught about gun safety. It is all HIS fault!
