Mr. Israeli P.M., and Mr. O. and Congress,
There are very few people in the world not aware of your, uh, “dislike” for Mr. Ahmadinejad, and disregard for the lives of Iranian people – of course, in the name of “security” . . .
But . . .… Read full post »
As so often happens – what is spoken and heard is the pain, violence, wants, proposed solutions, etc...
as with the State of Israel, the problem is not spoken, clearly defined.
Here it is – as I see it –
Israel/Palestine - the REAL problem...
After… Read full post »
It's that time of year again -
Israel “culling” it's Gaza citizens – you could call it – a zionist ritual – in the name of “self defense”.
I'm certain, at this moment, most Palestinian People, as well as many others around the world are – really angry… Read full post »
Just ran across the following – from September, 2010:

now repeat after me...
The u.s. style economy - a few people create money out of nothing and demand more than they create, more than exists, in return - is a cancer that destroys not only as Robert Kennedy mentioned - everything that makes life worth living...

Anyone else get the impression we're living in an – upside down – world?
Excerpt of Remarks of Robert F. Kennedy at the University of Kansas, March 18, 1968, http://www.jfklibrary.org/Research/Ready-Reference/RFK-Speeches/Remarks-of-Robert-F-Kennedy-at-the-University-of-Kansas-March-18-… Read full post »
A new direction.
I feel – TRAPPED!
It's like being in a prison, yet there are no locks, not even any doors – BUT – just can't get out
or, maybe – just maybe – outside is still caught in the same – net – web – entanglement.… Read full post »
We can have it... if enough people want it.
Some people will automatically start screaming - socialism, that's bad, it doesn't work, etc., etc., etc.
I will not disagree with them.
Doesn't something seem out of balance if "the wealthiest nation" to ever be is overnight… Read full post »
The following has just been emailed to our illustrious White House resident...
where do you stand?
Living in the White House must bring about difficult decisions...
Once again there is a flotilla attempting to get humanitarian aid through to the people o… Read full post »
First let me explain - governments, including but not limited to the U. S. and Israel are fictions. When I anthropomorphise thses fictions, I really mean - the administrations, those that make laws for others, The Establishment.
They have varying levels of support, or not, from those whose money… Read full post »
Has "humanity' really changed over the millennium???
There are those for whom the game is "power over" others, and there are others for whom the game is "power with" others.
Most people continue to play on the side of "power over", believing they can be on "the winning… Read full post »
I issue a challenge!
The Land of Abraham Challenge!
to Israel, the U. S. A., Hamas, the PLO, Fatah, primarily, as they are the major players,
and to Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, the neighbors,

Thank you Mr. Burston!
I get so sick and tired of hearing "peace activists" and the white house resident with comments to the effect of...
"It is not for me to say what the solution is..."
To really state their views, to stand naked before the world and… Read full post »
Israel continue to deny citizenship to the natives it governs in the West Bank and Gaza and in good Orwellian language continue to tell itself it is a Jewish democracy surrounded by enemies who want to destroy it
Israel looks in the mirror and realizes the… Read full post »
When I think of it, I find it completely, totally, AMAZING!
but, I guess I shouldn't be surprised...
The need for Amnesty International!

As the State of Israel continues its Remembrance of Jews who died during World War II...
- all of the non-Jews that were also among the victims. While the overwhelming majority in the camps were Jewish, they were not alone. They had company...
Just trying to get some idea of what Jewish "mysticism" is about and found The Everything Kabbalah Book in the library.
in the back of the book there is a "Jewish" time line of events... interesting...
some things I've known about, like the expulsion of Jews from the… Read full post »
Looking for discussion...
What little I know of Hinduism, Buddhism, Puget Sound and environ native American religions/cultures and the Abrahamic religions/cultures, I wonder...

Many Jewish People and Palestinian People, I would guess, share one common idea, promoted by the U.S. current and previous administrations, and of course main stream media - at least in the U.S.
They share the common vision of "their own" country.
I can understand why for many… Read full post »
As I mentioned in another post...
I am NOT pro-Israel, Arab, Jewish, Muslim, or any other race or religion!
Due to my genetics, family and life experiences, I've come to the conclusion - what is important is NOT race or religion, but connection, the individual. (I know, there are… Read full post »
I understand every society, philosophy has some form of "the golden rule":

When will the Palestinian people take back their identity?
From what I learned, and corroborated by doing a web search on "Semite", the term refers to any of a number of peoples, including Palestinians.
This being the situation, Israel leads the world, with the U.S. as number 2, as… Read full post »
Anthony Quinn played a Greek in the movie "Zorba the Greek".
I'll never forget his presentation; the forcefulness, the manner in which he presents the lines...
