Ziggy Marley rejected online pressure to boycott Israel and performed there this week. Here are couple quotes from a  press conference he did in Israel. Do you agree? What do you think Bob Marley would have done? “Rastafarianism has a lot to do with the Old Testament and Solomon and David and Moses, so we have […]

Just the Horrible Facts

  The following excerpt from an AP news report today should need no comment. Surely, the facts speak for themselves: Israeli tank shells hit a compound housing a U.N. school in the Gaza Strip on Thursday, killing at least 15 people and wounding dozens who were seeking shelter from fierce clashes on the streets outside, Palestinian officials said, as […]

The Tricky Business of Searching for Mideast Peace

I am sure you would agree that peace is a “good thing.” Not always, of course. When British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain returned from Germany in 1938 and proclaimed that he had ensured “peace for our time,” it turned out to be catastrophic. The price of that “peace” was Hitler’s rampage through Europe, the slaughter […]

Exposing the Myth of “Free Speech” in America

You hear a lot of blather about the constitutional right to free speech in America, and it’s true that those crazies who utter threatening and seditious remarks against the country’s first black president would probably be rounded up and shot in some other countries. Or at least sent to prison. But the same “right” apparently […]

Just short of Death

News coming to me from legal circles in New York, has more than strongly hinted than a super indictment has been amended to include three top ranking Jamaica Labour Party members on charges of obstruction of justice, money laundering and conspiracy. Who are they? Well let’s say if these names ever get released in the […]

I Hate to Say This But We Can’t Do Much About Iranian Savagery

If we lived in a just world, those frowsy-looking Iranian mullahs would be strung up by their thumbs and horsewhipped (or worse), a democratic government would be installed in Iran, and an international group would be appointed to ensure no nuclear weapon is ever developed there. Furthermore, that tinpot despot in North Korea would be […]

Hand-jobs and more

Recent posturing by Israeli pm Netanyahu might appear to be an aggressive response to Barack Obama’s wish for peace in the mid-east. According to news reports, Netanyahu is signaling that he may resist Obama’s call for Palestinian statehood, and that he may authorize military strikes against Iran if the United States doesn’t act first. In […]

Almost Unnoticed, the Mideast is a Ticking Time Bomb

While the American media concentrate on such important topics as Miss California’s breast implants and Simon Cowell’s threatened departure from American Idol, a time bomb that could destroy the world as we know it ticks ominously and almost unnoticed in the Middle East. At issue is the likely reaction of the Muslim world if Israel […]

New Israeli Government Makes the World More Dangerous

The hawks who have clawed their way to power in Israel have received scant attention in the American news media. Reporters are far more interested in Michelle Obama’s clothing and whether she hugged the Queen before or after the Queen hugged her. Fortunately for those of us who worry about this dangerous world, there is […]

Mixed messages

Barack Obama and the economy still hold full rein over the nation’s headlines. The most recent item of note being AIG continuing to use taxpayers money to fund their bonuses. I believe that I read somewhere that the government was looking at AIG from a criminal action perspective (I think I read it or it […]
