Sweden, Palestine, Israel and Fumes of Fantasy

November 19, 2014 - 11:05 -- Admin

Middle East Forum exists inter alia to work for Palestinian acceptance of Israel. In the US it emphasizes the "danger of non-violent, lawful Islamism". Not surprisingly some of its articles are biased towards Israel and against Palestine. Here is an example from its President Daniel Pipes. It would be hilarious if it were not deadly serious.

Loitering is Verboten. IDF Will Shoot Anyone who Disobeys

November 18, 2014 - 11:33 -- Admin

The New York Times is a quality newspaper. So when it says the IDF fired at a suspect's lower body after first calling on him to stop and then firing into the air, you believe them? Fool that you are. They did shoot at the "lower body" and then at the "center of the body". Actually the victim was an unarmed 10 year old boy who was shot in the neck.

November 17, 2014 - 11:34 -- Admin

A few years ago a young woman in Australia's north threw her handbag at a crocodile. The croc went away so the woman jumped in the water to swim back to the boat. The croc took her. Crocodiles do not go away. The bill to change Israel basic law making a nation state of the Jewish people is a crocodile. It will not go away and it will kill democracy in Israel for anyone who is not Jewish.

Obama, a Pawn of Israel Right Wing Extremism?

November 7, 2014 - 12:42 -- Admin

US Vice President Joe Biden will address the Jewish Federations of North America in a few days. Will he take the opportunity of telling them that Israel's policy of apartheid and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians in the West Bank and Jerusalem must change? Or will he follow Obama's current policy of abasing the Presidency before the Jewish lobby, metaphorically crawling on its belly in the hope of a few votes being tossed in its direction?

It is Time to Sanction Israel

November 5, 2014 - 19:46 -- Admin

Just when you think no more is possible, Israel finds yet another way to deny justice and to attack the common rights of Palestinians. The latest move is to suspend Haneen Zoabi from the Knesset and to move towards outlawing Palestinian political parties from the Knesset. Led by right wing fanatics, Israel has sunk into a self glorifying apartheid abyss where criminal action is defended by the weak claim of necessary security.

Terrorism: An Abused Word with No Definition

November 3, 2014 - 20:20 -- Admin

Daniel Pipes and Teri Blumenfeld of the Washington Times recently wrote an interesting article titled: Terrorism defies definition. The subtitle, "Officialdom is still befuddled over the feared word's meaning", goes some way to sum up the article. But accidently, it also defines a different problem which forms the background to a recent poem of mine, Democracy Enwrapped in Terror's Shroud.
