So That’s What It’s All About…

By on Jun 14, 2007 in Politics | 0 comments

I just read a blog somewhere in which an apparently well intentioned but horrifically mal-informed American woman was (god bless her heart for stretching that far across the sea) lamenting the continued existence of Farfur – described as a Mickey Mouse-Alike that urges resistance to the United States and to Zionism. She claims that the Chairman of the TV station is depriving the children viewers of their childhoods for his own nefarious purposes. She uses words such as slandering and inciting… Right. So it’s the chairman robbing the children of their childhood. Not the IDF shooting them with so-called rubber bullets that are nothing but rubber-coated bullets. Not the Israeli roadblocks that prevent them from getting to school, or in fact, getting to hospital. Not the devastated economy they live under due to the Zionist state withholding their...

Joe Lieberman Is Nuts.

By on Jun 11, 2007 in Politics | 0 comments

Joe Lieberman was just on Face The Nation. He’s a complete nut. No matter what question he was asked – Lieberman managed to inject the phrase ‘Iranians are killing Americans’ into each and every sentence he uttered. He said it once, then again, then again, then again and again and again. It started with him saying that he’s just been to ‘the region’ – the only country he mentioned by name was ‘Israel’ – not quite a country as much as a military camp full of genocidal Zionists, but that’s another story for another post. In any case, his point was twofold – that he is an ally of ‘Israel’ and that he’s got the god-given truth from the only ‘trustworthy’ American ally in the Middle East. The Zionists told him so, so it’s just gotta be true. And on he went, about how Iran is...

Like A Rolling Stone…

I received an email yesterday informing me that the Rolling Stones are planning a concert in Israel, and asking me to include my name among people who are asking the Rolling Stones to boycott Israel; as various other artists and academics have. I replied to the email, included my information as requested, and then set up an online petition using the same text I was sent. Since, to my mind, that is probably a better way of collecting signatories. I then forwarded the web address of the petition to everybody on my contact list. In case you still don’t know where the petition is – it’s at http://www.petitiononline.com/suncity/petition.html At least one person replied to the effect that we are impotent in this matter, that we cannot ask the Rolling Stones to boycott Israel, and that the Rolling Stones, along with the rest of the West, simply don’t ‘give a...

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...

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...
