Countering Israel’s Strategy Of Deception

Countering Israel’s Strategy Of Deception

Part I- False charges of anti-Semitism and undue attention to World War II Holocaust    Effective mechanisms for halting Israel’s oppression, impeding the drive to incorporate all of former Palestine into a greater Israel, and preventing the Palestinians from becoming completely subservient to Israel’s dictates has been elusive. Obvious, and not entirely accepted, is that Israel has no intention of[Read More…]

International Bodies Fail To Understand The Middle East Crisis: Part I – Trajectory to Total War

International Bodies Fail To Understand The Middle East Crisis: Part I – Trajectory to Total War

One sentence summarizes the Zionist expansion from an incursion to ultimate takeover of Palestinian lands – the Zionists act aggressively and the world bodies re-react passively. Institutions that defend the world community and protect regional interests have failed to understand the Middle East crisis, failed to recognize the dangers posed by the Zionist expansion, and have subverted their constituencies. These[Read More…]

Ojo! More Disasters Are Ready To Happen In The Middle East

Ojo! More Disasters Are Ready To Happen In The Middle East

You do not have to be an insider, a foreign policy expert, or a political pundit to realize that the Unholy Trinity, the new axis of evil – United States, Israel and Saudi Arabia – are preparing joint military actions against Iran and Hezbollah. The Spanish colloquial word, Ojo, meaning eye, expresses it all – careful – be on watch[Read More…]

Is The Russian Government, Under Direction From President Putin, Silencing Dissidents?

Is The Russian Government, Under Direction From President Putin, Silencing Dissidents?

From the number of deceased Russian dissidents, complicity in their demise seems plausible. From evidence, thought, and logic, complicity seems unlikely: (1)    Only circumstantial links to Putin’s office have been established in the cases. (2)    Because political opposition is weak, and no obvious threat to the ruling United Russia Party, what would the government gain in assassination of opposition figures? (3)    Because Putin’s approval rating[Read More…]

Russia and the United States’ Presidential Election

Russia and the United States’ Presidential Election

  The icy look at the Russian Federation has taken a new twist; not only is President Vladimir Putin’s Russia responsible for unnerving and destabilizing Eastern Europe and Syria, antagonists accuse Russia of undermining the 2016 United States presidential election and attempting to destroy faith in the U.S. democratic electoral process. Media have packaged incomplete information, spurious information, and misinformation[Read More…]

Palestine Museum of Natural History

Palestine Museum of Natural History

In most museums, the name signifies the thrust. The recently opened Palestine Museum of Natural History, located within the Bethlehem university campus in Palestine, is more than its collections and its name; it is testimony to the spirit, vision, and courage of the Palestinian people, to their need for ontological security, a sense of order and continuity in their experiences,[Read More…]

Simplified Proposals To Resolve The World Conflagrations, Part II – Syria

Simplified Proposals To Resolve The World Conflagrations, Part II – Syria

  The American Revolution has characteristics that guide understanding of the Syrian insurrection. In both situations, ardent and semi-popular groups rebelled against injustices and hoped to create new regimes. In both situations, foreign powers, France and Spain in the American Revolution, and Russia, Iran, United States, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and other nations in the Syrian revolution, stoked the violence,[Read More…]

Simplifiying U.S. Proposals to Resolve the World Conflagrations

Simplifiying U.S. Proposals to Resolve the World Conflagrations

  From Pyongyang to Kabul, Damascus, Sana’a, on to Tripoli and in scattered parts of Asia and Africa, the United States’ policies for containing violence and achieving peace have been mostly counterproductive and intensified conflicts. The complex mixture of wars, threats, regime change, sanctions, posturing, demonizing, and vituperation have evidently been ineffective in resolving the world’s endless conflagrations. Has something[Read More…]

Does Israel Exist As A Nation State?

Does Israel Exist As A Nation State?

  Criticism of Israel’s actions, which are finally being countered by international pressure, may have one built-in failure — critics are dealing with the wrong Israel. To whom are the United Nations and the U.S. Secretary of State addressing? They may direct speech to leaders of a nation called Israel; but is there a nation called Israel? Not according to[Read More…]

Divide And Subdue – United States’ Castration Policy

Divide And Subdue – United States’ Castration Policy

  Gradual formation of nation states exploded into empires – Ottoman, Russian, Austrian-Hungarian, British, French, and the short lived Nazi Germany. Two world wars imploded these empires and allowed the strongest of the surviving international powers to control potential adversaries by a simplified mechanism of divide and subdue, which has many paths – partition, tribal separation, exacerbating civil conflicts, and[Read More…]

Heading Toward The Abyss With Hillary And Trump

Heading Toward The Abyss With Hillary And Trump

The media battle between Republican candidate Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton has sidetracked the impact of an unusual congressional campaign and diluted its essential meaning — voter dissatisfaction. In the democratic primary race for Washington’s 7th congressional district, State Senator Pramila Jayapal’s victory relates an important story of this election year — the public favors a new Democratic[Read More…]

Open Convention

Open Convention

A practical solution for re-invigorating a moribund Democratic Party and renewing faith in a broken political system is to have Hillary Clinton release her delegates and open the convention floor
