Turns out ten people died this morning in the Middle-East.
No big deal, right? Deaths happen in the Middle-East all the time, right? Just think of the Darfurians, who are being slaughtered by the tens of thousands or the remaining Jews in Yemen whose houses were regularly firebombed until they escaped last year. So what's different this time? Why would I even mention ten deaths?
Well, turns out today people died.
Not blacks, not Jews, but people.
I expect this tragedy to be well-cove...
U.N. Me takes us on a harrowing and darkly humorous tour of the U.N.'s scandalous disregard for the people and principles it was founded to defend. Along the way we learn:
How a U.N. peacekeeping force stationed in Cote d'Ivoire fired into a crowd of unarmed protesters, injuring and killing dozens, and how the U.N. failed to investigate.
How the largest U.N. humanitarian effort ever conceived, the Oil for Food Program, devolved into one of the biggest scams in the history of the world,...
I found this out today after doing some experiments and scientific research. And now I have indisputable proof that the so-called "scientific" theory of gravity is wrong.
This includes both common theories, Newton's and Einstein's, and demonstrates the need for a more factual alternative to be taught in schools, in science class, from now on.
How do I know that gravity is wrong?
Scientists tell us that because of "gravity" planets revolve around the sun. This has never been proven.
Iraqis are studying Hebrew at Baghdad University.
I find this especially interesting since my Hebrew teacher is from an Iraqi family.
The sooner the Arab states learn to accept that one of the non-Arab peoples is independent of their rule, the sooner we will have peace in the middle-east. Recognition of "the other" is an important step in the right direction.
Wearing an elegant pink headscarf, Marwa Abdel Karim serenades her fellow Baghdad University students with a heartfelt ...
Charles Krauthammer explains the problems with Obama's foreign policy:
The real news is that already notorious photo: the president of Brazil, our largest ally in Latin America, and the prime minister of Turkey, for more than half a century the Muslim anchor of NATO, raising hands together with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the most virulently anti-American leader in the world.
That picture -- a defiant, triumphant take-that-Uncle-Sam -- is a crushing verdict on the Obama foreign policy. It demonst...
Qatar proposed to carry out work in Gaza and re-opening of diplomatic relations with Israel in exchange for Israel recognising Qatar's importance as a peace broker in the middle-east:
Israel rejected a Qatari proposal by the Persian Gulf emirate to carry out rehabilitation work in the Gaza Strip in exchange for renewing diplomatic relations with Israel after Egypt made it clear that it would find such a deal "difficult to digest".
According to Egyptian sources, Israel provided Egyptian Pre...
The Palestinian diaspora in Australia is facing an unexpected catastrophe. Normally, May 15, Israel's Independence Day, is the most important day of their year for celebrating their victimhood: the catastrophe, as they see it, of the founding of Israel.
But, this year, visiting fresh from the streets of Gaza, Ramallah and Jerusalem is Khaled Abu Toameh, an Israeli Arab Muslim journalist, who declares: "I'd rather be a second-class citizen in Israel than a first-class citizen in any Arab count...
President Shimon Peres took a jab Monday at European states that recently criticized Israel, saying that unlike their conduct in World War II, Israel has never asked that American soldiers fight on its behalf.
The president stressed that no other country shares a similar history with Israel, which has been forced to go to war seven times in its 62-year history.
"Some people in the West criticize Israel. Yet when many of them fought, they asked for America's help," he said.
1. Nationhood and Jerusalem - Did you know that Israel became a nation in 1312 B.C.E., two thousand years before the rise of Islam.
2. Did you know that Arab refugees in Israel began identifying themselves as part of a Palestinian people in 1967, two decades after the establishment of the modern State of Israel.
3. Did you know that since the Jewish conquest in 1272 B.C.E. the Jews have had dominion over the land for one thousand years with a continuous presence in the land for the past 3,...
It is surprising but it seems that Obama's quest to "improve" relations with America's allies after the eight-year Bush debacle continue to fail. Even Reuters acknowledges that Obama has problems even just getting along with allies:
U.S. President Barack Obama and Afghan President Hamid Karzai, allied in war but lacking in personal chemistry, face a critical test next week of whether they can just get along
Any Obama supporters here w...
My friend Mohamed Yahya )he is the former roommate of a friend of mine) is a refugee from Darfur and Executive Director of Damanga.
He wrote this article:
As the victims and survivors of Darfur genocide, we are not surprised by the results of the Sudanese rigged, flawed elections that have been announced earlier this week, to declare a victory for Omar Al-Bashir, as a re-elected president to Sudan. But we are extremely shocked, and terribly dismayed for the support of some Internation...
A Quinnipiac University survey released recently indicated that Obama made a mistake on the Israel issue, and not only among Jews. Overall, the US public supports the president’s foreign policy, mostly in Afghanistan (56%) and in handling terror (61%), yet Americans are dissatisfied with Obama on one issue – his attitude to the Israeli-Palestinian problem.
This trend is especially noticeable among Jews. While they support Obama on any other issue, when it comes to Israel 67% of t...
Shmulik's First Law of Modern Liberalism
Any non-Scandinavian foreign politician supported by liberals will sooner or later turn out to be a homophobic crazy person.
Case in point:
Bolivian President Evo Morales was under fire on Wednesday for suggesting that eating hormone-injected chicken could provoke male deviance at a global climate change summit.
Bolivia's opposition and homosexual groups criticized comments made by Morales at the first "people's conference" on climat...
This is why Israel is the Holy Land:
In our peculiar post-9/11 world, it is apparently less controversial to kill a suspect in cold blood than to hold him in preventive detention. The Post reported on February 14 that the Obama administration has killed many more suspected terrorists than it has captured. According to National Journal, Obama ordered more drone attacks in his first year than President Bush did in two full presidential terms. The Post article suggested that the two developments may not be unrelated. A dead suspect, a...
