Who’s Afraid of Wolfowitz?

By on Apr 16, 2007 in Politics | 0 comments

Well, perhaps you should be. With a dual American-Israeli citizenship, and strong political alliances, Paul Wolfowitz seems all but invincible. The media, as a whole, seems blind to the perplexing paradox that the current president of the World Bank, ostensibly an organization out to alleviate poverty, and aid development – just happens to be one of the founders of the Project For The New American Century – an organization that propagates an agenda of Military Expansionism with the explicit aim of creating an American Empire. I’ve linked to documentation before, google the damn thing and read. Does that at all seem like a conflict of interest to you? And if not – are you even paying attention? Oh, Kilgore – eat my...

God Bless You, Mr. Vonnegut…

He’s dead. Kurt Vonnegut, author of some truly wonderful books such as ‘God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater’, ‘Slaughterhouse 5’, ‘Deadeye Dick’, and various others is dead. He spent years warning us about ourselves. He wrote and wrote and wrote, and, of course, we ignored his warnings and his alarms. He saw the last few years and realized what a terrible time we’ve been going through, and…well, another sane voice now silenced by time. In 2002, during an interview, reflecting on Bush’s America, he said “our country, for whose Constitution I fought in a just war, might as well have been invaded by Martians and body snatchers. Sometimes I wish it had been.” Thanks, Kurt. And so it...

Get Carter…

I’m no big fan of Jimmy, and I’ve always had trouble with some of the formulations reached under his Camp David negotiations with the late Egyptian President Anwar El Sadat – who I’m also not a big fan of… “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid” certainly didn’t get a second glance from me when I first heard of its release – after all – he is a former president and an old man with questionable political influence and, it seemed to me, a title featuring a word that has been etched into my head over years of viewing the Zionist offensive on Palestine and the Palestinians and thus comes as no surprise. For years, anybody who’s paid the slightest bit of attention knows about the Palestinian crops destroyed, the Palestinian exports left to rot, the Palestinian homes pulverized by bulldozers provided by Caterpillar, the Palestinian...

Well, If The US Can Do It…

The British Sunday Times has reported that Israel is already planning and training for a tactical nuclear attack on Iranian facilities. This particular news item was also carried on ynetnews, a Zionist news site. In any case, I find it particularly that neither headline displayed the simple truth behind the report – the final implicit headline composed of five simple words “Israel does have nuclear weapons.” In any case – Ynetnews then goes on to state that “After countless declarations of peaceful intentions of nuclear plan, Iran’s chief nuclear envoy confirms fears by saying if county is threatened, situation may change.“… You can see the logic of paranoia putting that sentence together. The simple statement by Iran that it would react if threatened, is taken to mean that their nuclear plans are not otherwise intended peacefully. The...

‘Israel’ – The Might To Exist…

By on Nov 13, 2006 in Politics | 1 comment

Now, just to settle this once and for all. Every once in a while, as has happened just recently (see comments on my previous post), I get told that it is the ‘impractical’ Arabs that are at the root of the problem. That, as a recent commentator has said, if the Arabs still resisting Zionism were but to “recognize Israel’s right to exist” – then things could move on; progress could be achieved, the Middle East crisis would come to an end, and the Sun would rise in the East! The winds will once again smell of fresh blossoms, and the footprints of Jesus would shine bright throughout the Holy Land, cleansing it of millennia of bloodshed and imperial strife… Right. For the record, I do not acknowledge “Israel”‘s right to exist. The claim is absurd, and even otherwise intelligent people have been taught to repeat it like a mantra....
