Tonight I lost the last bit of sympathy for President Obama

This is President Obama's most nasty, bellicose, one-sided and perversely power-arrogant speech ever. The Nobel Committee ought to revoke its Prize to him, but of course it won't.

This cynical man speaks about the goodness of even more "crippling" sanctions on a country of 75 million people of which 25 % are children under 14.

At every single aspect he touches upon, he takes the wrong path: towards making war irreversible. There is no excuse that it was for AIPAC. In contrast to…

Palestinians, Israelis Shape New Reality through Dialogue

 

Laura Shaz

Israel/USA

Palestinian & Israelis Peace Plan

There are three main reasons why the Israelis do not want to go back to negotiate at the peace table with the Palestinians. First, time is on the Israeli side. They have total control of what is happening on the ground in their region. While over time the so called “realities on the ground” are changing in the Israelis favor. Secondly the Israeli government receives many billions of dollars for military aid from the United States government and many hundreds of millions of…

Israel Insanity Iran Nukes

As the insanity grows between Israel and Iran, over the nuclear proliferation in the Middle East. The question becomes where will it end when the State of Israel is the only Middle Eastern nation who has undeclared nuclear weapons today. Almost no one in the world except for a few people in Iran who want to hold onto power, want to see Iran become a nuclear military nation. It is almost globally unanimously seen as going the wrong way for global peace and security.  As it is…

You Have to Develop Trust Over Time

 

If we wait until one side trusts the other side, or we wait until both sides trust each other. Peace, security and justice will not come about and trust will never develop and grow between the two people in the Holy Land. Only went you fly a helicopter along the Green Line. You can not see a difference between the East side and Western side of the Green Line will there be trust between the two people. There is no question without an infusion of a…

Arc & Palestine United Nation Membership is Progress Towards Peace

  Amidst everything going on with the Arab Spring in the Middle East. The Israeli government would be in a much better position going forward.

Giving Palestine full membership status to the United Nations would give them a legitimacy among the international community. Making them equal to any other nation. It would…
