Comment on Obama needs Europe in responding to MH17 Crash, but NSA Spying a Bar by John Sang

Jack, It is no “conspiracy theory” to point out that airplane crashes did not cause bldg 7 to collapse on 9/11. No independent investigation has been allowed of this curious fact?

Nina Paley’s "This Land is Mine"

July 23rd, 2014 No comments

Yes, Part II of Hester Stanhope is coming. Meanwhile, back to the present century.

This is several years old, but I’m sorry to say it’s not out of date. It dates from 2012 and is by Jewish-American cartoonist Nina Paley. I’m stunned I never ran this before.

For the non-historians, she has helpfully provided a guide to the various sides, such as the fact that the guy with the gigantic hammer is a Maccabee (which means hammer). (One quibble: the IDF doesn’t use AK-47s.)

The song, which you mercifully rarely hear these days, was set to the theme music of he film Exodus, the 1960 Otto Preminger film in which blue-eyed Paul Newman, blonde Eva-Marie Saint, Italian Sal Mineo and others founded the State of Israel. The words were not used in the movie theme. And, I really am not making this up: the lyrics were written by Pat Boone and are sung here by Andy Williams.

… need we remind him what we are doing in SYRIA, IRAQ, Yemen …etc?

“… WASHINGTON — In presenting the most detailed case yet alleging Russia’s involvement in the Ukraine crisis, Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday that Russia had funneled large quantities of heavy weapons to Ukrainian separatists and trained them how to operate SA-11 antiaircraft missiles, the type of system that is believed to have been used to shoot down the Malaysian airliner over eastern Ukraine…”

Comment on Is Rula Jebreal right about US Media Bias against Palestinians? by LAYLA

July 23rd, 2014 No comments

She is 100% correct! Very brave and very smart lady. She speaks as a true american would, freedom of speech, democracy and the press…

I wish more of my fellow Americans would wake up, open their ears and eyes to what’s happening to our once great country.

I am still an American, however, I am ashamed at what my country has become :( a money hungry shameful fraud.

I look forward to seeing and hearing more about Rula Jebreal! I look forward to seeing my once great country actually stand for what’s right not for what’s the denomination :(

Comment on What Has $121,000,000,000 US Aid to Israel Really Bought? by msnthrop

July 23rd, 2014 No comments

Most of the money provided to Israel comes back to the U.S. in the form of contracts (meaning JOBS) with American companies. Can’t say that about any other country to which the U.S. provides foreign aid.

The “foreign aid” sent to Egypt comes to mind as it is mostly earmarked to be sent right back to US arms manufacturers

RT journalists resign, which shows that at least RT hires people with some ethics and backbone.

The rest of the MSM, not so much.

Comment on Is Rula Jebreal right about US Media Bias against Palestinians? by Troutman

July 22nd, 2014 No comments

Identifying “truth” in the context of seven decades of Middle East dispute is made easier by committing time and concentration to as many news sites as can be accessed. It seems the voices and attitudes manifest in this setting are reasoned, enlightened and to be taken seriously. Between the black and white exists the vast gray reality of half fact, non fact, hyperbole and mere supposition. The more you know the more you know you don’t know, you know?
