The Slaughter of the Innocents

"Leave or Die" is the message, yet there is no where to leave "to".

(LONDON) - child in cross-hairs 13When the Magi (the three wise men) had gone an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up,” he said, “take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.” 14So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt...

That was then, when the infant Jesus could find a safe haven and sanctuary in Egypt. Which is more that can be said for the children of Gaza today looking to find a safe haven in present day Egypt under the dictatorship of Abdul Fattah Al-Sisi. Two thousand years ago when the world was under the hegemony of the Roman Empire it was a very different world from today.

Hamas Pricks Israel`s Soft Under-Belly, Ben Gurion Airport

The British gave up Lydda airport in April 1948 and IDF soldiers captured the airport on 10 July 1948, in Operation Danny, when the population was driven out as part of Israel's ethnic cleansing programme.

(LONDON) - Lydda Airport Hamas has hit Palestine's bloodthirsty occupier where it could hurt real bad -- in the soft under-belly that is Ben Gurion airport. The Resistance has achieved this by lobbing a rocket too close for comfort and causing air carriers in the United States and Europe to halt flights to Tel Aviv after warnings from governmental agencies concerned about passenger safety.

"The carriers are making the right call," said Robert Mann, an airline consultant in Port Washington, New York.

Holocaust in Palestine

At the last count there were over 220 Palestinian innocent children, women and men dead and on the other side one dead Israeli.

(LONDON) - gaza children Far be it from me to quote ‘a holy book’ but if you think of those holy books as terms of reference as opposed to a rigid doctrine of worship then quoting them becomes acceptable.

It says in the bible that our journey in life, the human race, is limited to three score years and ten, adding up to seventy. Try to tell that to the many mothers, sisters and grannies in Palestine who suffered the loss of a child before they even made it to ten years, slaughtered by Israeli brute force. A force that is supplied, equipped, trained and sanctioned by western powers, especially the United States of America.

Timid US Presbyterians Punish American Companies, shun BDS and Let Israel off the Hook

One more group who thinks negotiations under military occupation will deliver peace.

(LONDON) - Salem-News.com Pro-Palestinian campaigners are cock-a-hoop over the Presbyterian Church USA's vote to divest from Caterpillar Inc, Hewlett-Packard and Motorola Solutions.

Hailed as amazing, brave and miraculous in some quarters, it was actually a very close-run thing: 310 to 303 against, with no abstentions. Excuse me if I don't join the celebrations.

The United States` Tragic Role in Iraq

"It is particularly bizarre that some of the very people who supported the illegal and unnecessary invasion of Iraq are now trying to somehow blame Obama for the unfolding fiasco."

(SANTA CRUZ, Calif.) - Iraqi sheik The dramatic rise of the extremist Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)—which even al-Qaeda deemed too extreme to remain part of its network—is a tragedy by any measure. It would also be tragic if we allowed the very forces that created this mess to explain it away.

Despite claims by the Bush administration and its supporters to the contrary, outside of a few dozen fighters in a remote valley of the Kurdish autonomous region, there was no Al-Qaeda or related Salafi extremist presence in Iraq under the Saddam Hussein regime. But now, thanks to the U.S. invasion and occupation, the extremists control most of the northern and western parts of the country, including Iraq’s second largest city.
