Ice Cream for Justice

The Jewish students who call for Ben & Jerry’s to evacuate ‘illegally occupied’ Vermont land are making the case for Ben and Jerry.

The students are claiming that Ben & Jerry’s headquarters in Vermont is occupying the land lawfully belonging to the Abenaki Indians.

This was done in response to Ben & Jerry’s not permitting ice cream to be sold in the West Bank in protest of Israel’s landgrab in the West Bank.

The students have an interesting point, but in a strange way they make the case against Israel’s land grab in the West Bank.

Both Ben and Jerry and the state of Israel are involved in land grabbing.

This is not unusual. Land grabbing is something that we human beings have done since the beginning of time.

What may be different in the two land grabs is that Native Americans were given reservations that were their own sovereign nations. The Palestinians have not been accorded such. Well, they were given their own inviolable areas, but that pact was violated.

Additionally, Native Americans were not restricted from joining the larger American society. Many did so.

In contrast, Palestinians are restricted from joining the larger Israeli society.

There is a difference.

Palestinians have been harassed and subjected to second class status by the state of Israel. This has occurred both in the West Bank and the Gaza strip.

The students are young and tragically uninformed about the history of Israel. They are also tragically uninformed about the history of Palestine.

There were Palestinians living in what is now Israel for thousands of years. The land now known as Israel was called Palestine.

The Palestinians did not suddenly rush into the various territories after the state of Israel was created.

They were already there.

The United States and Great Britain seeking a beachhead to control the oil and gas reserves in the Middle East, the Suez canal, and the eastern Mediterranean created the state of Israel to do just that.

To that end, the western powers helped populate Palestine with Jews from around the world.

It was always a one-sided agreement against the Palestinians with the United States and Great Britain falsely posing as neutral powerbrokers.

And that is how the state of Israel came to be.

It takes much money and organization to relocate people. Only government money can provide that.

No one lifted a hand to help the Jews for 1875 years. There was no serious movement of Jews into Palestine for 1875 years.

After Edwin Drake piped oil out of the ground in 1858, and after the energy efficiency of oil was realized, it was only a matter of time before other areas of the world were explored for oil.

First was western Pennsylvania in the late 1800s; second was Spindletop in Texas in 1902; third was the discovery of oil in Iran in 1908.

Very quickly geologists became aware of the vast oil reserves in the Middle East.

That is why the state of Israel was created. The Jews were used to colonize the Middle East for the powers that be.

That is why it was necessary to take the land away from the Palestinians.

That’s reality.

No amount of wishing can make it go away.

To date both the state of Israel and its chief benefactor, the United States of America, have chosen not to give the Palestinians a fair stake in the game.

Consequently, the landgrab continues. The harassment of Palestinians continues.

Ben & Jerry’s was making a statement.

What is that statement?

In short, what goes around comes around. Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.

Truth is truth.

The young students, no doubt pumped into a frothing frenzy by the ultra-conservative Likud party, strike back against Ben and Jerry’s by comparing their land grab in the Middle East With the land grab by European settlers of native American lands.

Well, they’re right.

They are absolutely right.

Sugarcoating Lies

I don’t even know why I’m wasting my time writing this out.

Everybody already has their opinions anyway.

Israel was not created for the Jews.

The Jews were used to colonize Palestine by the elites in order to control the eastern Mediterranean and the vital assets in that area, those being the Suez Canal and the vast oil and gas fields.

What’s going on there is colonial imperialism.

The Palestinians were in the way.

Much effort is spent by Jews and Christians in justifying Israel’s existence there. Some people say that God sanctioned Israel for the Jews.

God did no such thing.

God doesn’t sanction land for people.

Our Old Testament was invented and written by the Jews. That’s hardly an objective source.

I’m sure there were prehistoric men who lived in the area 15 to 20,000 years ago who had gods also, and I’ll be willing to bet that they felt that their God had sanctioned the land for them.

They were wrong.

Additionally, those people are dead, and the dead have no rights.

Other people say that there was no formal country called Palestine. That is used to do delegitimize the rights of Palestinians.

There is no moral right to say that people are not entitled to land because they don’t have a formal government and formal legal documents designating such.

That is our western value system speaking.

Still others claim that were no Palestinians living there. That is simply not the case. Muslims were in the majority for over 800 years in what is now Israel from 1200 to now. The Christians were in the majority from the year 500 to the year 1200. The Jews only had two centuries where they were in the majority.

Another argument promoted is that the area was renamed Syria-Palestinia by the Romans when they conquered the land and killed the Jews. The name Palestinian comes from Philistine and was according to some used intentionally to insult the Jews.

So what? That means nothing.

Who cares who named the area? Or why?

An attendant argument is that there’s no connection between modern-day Palestinians and the Philistines from the Bible.

I don’t know about that. Where did the Palestinians come from? If the Romans killed the Jews, who was left in the area?

Some supporters of Israel would like you to believe that the Palestinians rushed in to confront the Jews in 1948 much as the Los Angeles Lakers would show up in San Antonio to play the Spurs.

The numbers and the facts don’t support that.

The Palestinians were there. They came from there. They had to come from somewhere.

Probably they came from the same stock of people as the Jews.

If we go back far enough we see that there was a tremendous mixing of religions back in the early years. People were borrowing from different religions and experimenting.

When Islam moved into the area, it seems reasonable that many Jews might convert to Islam.

Just as we have people switching religions today, we have peoples switching religions back then.

People are always searching for the meaning of life. Our biology has not changed much in thousands of years. Indeed, we are trapped within our biology.

The attempts to delegitimize the Palestinian people are arguments put out by the Empire to justify its immoral actions.

The Palestinians were colonized and are being colonized just as the Native Americans were colonized.

They are being pushed off their lands.

That doesn’t negate the state of Israel.

Israel certainly can exist.

It can exist because this is the way man is. This is the way man has always been.

Man has always moved across borders, set up shop and taken over the joint.

It’s the right of Palestinians to resist.

We should admire that resistance because we would do the same thing.

Would the Jews not push back if someone was taking their land?

They already are. That’s why they’re pounding the Gaza Strip with bombs.

This is the nobility of man, of which there is very little.

Let’s not sugarcoat it with lies.

Losers

Many of you undoubtably are being programmed by loud buffoons like Sean Hannity into thinking that Israel is innocent in its attack against the Palestinians.

The Prime Minister of Israel, Bibi Netanyahu, refers to Hamas as terrorists.

Well, so are many Israelis.

The attached article discusses the Deir Yassin massacre.

The battle that they are having over there in the Middle East is a classic case of the Hatfields and McCoys, and neither party seems smart enough to lay down arms.

Of course, the United States doesn’t help matters.

Since the United States overwhelmingly supports Israel, even under a Biden administration (pay no attention to Sean Hannity), the attacks must exist for a reason.

Actually, they do exist for a reason.

Every time Netanyahu (MIT) becomes threatened politically, he provokes the Palestinians to fire rockets into Israel. Then Netanyahu responds with overwhelming force against Hamas. This strengthens his position politically, and he remains in power. This is obviously what the United States desires.

Aside from that, the United States and its pal, the United Kingdom, desire the formerly named Palestine as a valuable piece of real estate in the American-British empire.

Israel acts as a beach head to control the Suez canal and desirable oil assets in the Middle East.

The state of Israel was created to secure that real estate. The Jews were used as social cover for the monied elite to move in and take the land away from the people who were living there. That’s what this conflict is all about.

Iran, a regional power, has no desire to see the United States and the UK control the oil assets of the Middle East. That’s why they support the Palestinians. That’s why they support the rebel forces in Yemen. That’s why they oppose the Saudis who ally themselves with the United States. That’s why they support Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Now, for you people who believe that there were no Palestinians living in Palestine prior to the creation of the state of Israel, you are wrong.

Prior to the state of Israel, that land was called Palestine. When Americans visited there back in the day, before 1948, they would send back postcards that would say Palestine on them.

The Palestinians did not rush into the area just because the state of Israel was created.

Clueless leaders in Israel like Naftali Bennett, believe, or want people to believe, that the Palestinians showed up much as the Los Angeles Lakers would visit San Antonio to play the hometown Spurs.

Both Jews and Arabs had been living in Palestine for thousands of years – peacefully.

What changed was the discovery of oil. When oil was discovered, when it was found to be a valuable asset, the monied elite moved in and caused all these problems.

The monied elite decided to preferentially back the Jews.

Even under the British mandate in Palestine, the Arabs suspected that they were getting the short end of the stick. Well, they were and are.

If there is to be peace in the Middle East, the United States and its pal, the United Kingdom, need to make things right for the Arabs somewhere in the world.

If they can’t do it, then they need to get out of the way and let someone who can and will.

The crisis in the Middle East is another indictment of Harvard’s and Oxford’s leadership. They’re losers.

L-O-S-E-R-S.

A Better Plan

Here’s a good video giving the Palestinian perspective. With that stated, the best idea to solve the problem came from Trump and Kushner. Now, many of you know that it pains me to complement a Harvard graduate like Kushner, but his idea was excellent. Kushner is perhaps the first Harvard graduate in many years who has said anything that remotely made any sense. He should get a Nobel prize for that.

Essentially, his idea was to compensate the Palestinians monetarily. I think this is a good idea as money is the magic salve that cleans all wounds. Money has amazing healing properties.

The problem with Kushner’s deal was that there wasn’t enough money. I would sweeten the pot. Here is what I would do. In exchange for leaving Gaza and the West Bank, renouncing all property claims, plus renouncing violence against Israel, each Palestinian would receive the following:

100,000 cash, tax free

20 acres land

100,000 housing allotment, no taxes for life

Free education for life

For a family of five, they would receive 500,000 dollars, tax free; 100 acres of land; $500,000 housing allotment; and free education for life.

The Palestinians would have to emigrate to one of the western countries participating in the plan.

Assuming that 5 million Palestinians take the offer, the total cost would be one trillion if you exclude land and education costs which really aren’t costs at all.

One trillion is chump change in Obama money.

Even if you double the cost to factor in the land, the free education, the costs of tax free status, you’re still getting a bargain.

That’s a cheap price to pay for peace.

Of course, many Palestinians and their supporters will exhibit righteous indignation and tell the world that Israel is trying to buy them off, but they will begrudgingly take the money. And this will be a good thing for them. They will be able to start a brand new life somewhere else. They won’t be stuck in the Gaza Strip which has become, as many people have termed it, an open air prison.

I suppose there is hope for Harvard.

Middle East Games

The United States desires this conflict. I don’t care what comes out of the mouth of an official from the United States of America.

The United States has been a dishonest broker in peace.

Israel was created by the elites in Great Britain and the United States for the purposes of controlling the Suez Canal and the oil assets in the Middle East.

That area of the world was considered a vital asset, and so a beachhead was needed there.

The Jews were used as a social cover for the elites’ desires.

It was always the intention of the monied elite to side with the Jews over the Arabs.

Even during the British Mandate in Palestine the Arabs sensed that the British were favoring the Jews.

Don’t think however that the monied elite love the Jews anymore than they do the Arabs.

They don’t.

As soon as the eastern Mediterranean is no longer useful to the elites, they will abandon the Jews.

The only thing the monied elites love is money. They don’t care about anything else.

The Aging Boxer

The United States will never win another important war.

Sure, we will win battles.

Sure, we will win fake wars that our government sets up to give our soldiers an easy victory.

But we will never win another real war unless the country changes.

There’s a reason for that.

It has nothing to do with the goodness or ability of the American soldier.  Wars are lost in spite of our soldiers efforts.

There are three principal reasons why we cannot win a war. 

1. It only takes a short time before the American soldier arrives at the battle scene and figures out that the war has nothing to do with democracy and preserving our way of life and everything to do with making money for the rich. Thus the solider becomes dispirited.

2. As the United States has drifted away from a Christian-based society to a secular one, the CIA and the government have created a culture of distrust in which, surprise, no one trusts each other. You need to trust your teammate in order to win battles. Currently our country finds itself ensconced within a thick cake of distrust, lies and deceit seven layers deep. Nobody can even begin to guess who’s on first base.  Everyone is seen as having an ulterior motive.

3.  War is the end game now.  The elites now wage wars to rob the treasury (us) and keep the economy going. Our elites are too lazy and too stupid to wage peace – which, by the way, would make them far more money.  No, they want the quick bucks that war brings.  Consequently, since war is the end game, war is not necessarily fought in order to be won.  The soldiers want to win and go back home, but the elites prefer it to keep going.  Why, my gosh, how else could they make money?

As such, we will lose wars.

We have become the kind of country we used to beat.

We are a giant banana republic with thugs on top who have learned to talk pretty, wear a suit and not wildly shoot bullets into the air from machine guns. 

These are the generals who eat lobster in Saigon as the country goes to shit.

Hence, the losses just keep on coming.

The best is yet to come.  Its name is Iran.

These fools who lead us – tanked up on their titles, awards and press clippings – think that they can phone in their performance and take out Iran in a week.

Well, good luck to that.

Russia, China and India will never permit the US to control Iran again.

US control of Iran and its oil spells death and a century of economic slavery for these countries, for if the US controls Iran, the US will control well over fifty percent of the world’s oil and gas reserves and its flow from the Persian Gulf.

With Iran in its grip, the US can bankrupt and subjugate Russia, India and China.

These countries will fight the US to the death to prevent such, and they will win.

They will win for the same reason that the rabbit outruns the fox.  The fox is running for its dinner; the rabbit is running for its life.

Plus, we’re not living in 1950 anymore.  China has grown pretty strong.  They’re the new tough kid on the block.

The US, like an aging boxer living in the past, is not the country it once was.

No, this aging boxer, feeling the effects of too many hits to the head, craves just one more victory.

If only he can get a shot at the title, he says to himself.

Well, we all know what happens to washed-up boxers.

It’s never pretty.

Israel and Oil

This is what our clueless  vice-President, Mike “I love Hamilton” Pence, had to say the other day at the Israeli American Council meeting in Miami :

“This is an administration that stands with Israel!  Today it is my honor to say: If the world knows nothing else, let the world know this: America stands with Israel! We stand next to Israel because we believe in right over wrong, good over evil, liberty over tyranny. Support for the Jewish State is not a partisan issue. It is an American issue.”

Has this man, Mike Pence, ever had an original thought in his brain?  That’s my first take.  Is he a wind-up Ken doll?

Secondly, I feel sorry for many Jews because they, as well as Christians, have been deluded by the brand of bullshit that Mike Pence shovels out.

Both Jews and Christians think that Israel is for the Jews. Well I have a ticket on the clue train for them.

Israel has nothing to do with the Jews. Israel was created to establish a beachhead in the Middle East for energy corporations to extract oil. Nothing else.

These corporate titans don’t give one rat’s ass about the Jews.  

Unfortunately, the Jews are going to find that out the hard way when some bright individual either  figures out an alternative energy source besides oil or invents a way to get 100x the efficiency out of a drop of oil.

Then they’ll know the truth which is what Mike Pence should’ve stated at that conference.

Here is what he should have said:

“This is an administration that stands with our beachhead for oil in the Middle East!  Today it is my honor to say: If the world knows nothing else, let the world know this: America stands with our beachhead for oil in the Middle East.  We stand next to our beachhead for oil in the Middle East because we believe in might makes right, evil over good, tyranny over liberty. Support for our beachhead for oil in the Middle East is not a partisan issue. It is a corporate issue.”

Now that would be the truth.

Now, if you are the kind of person who believes that Israel is for the Jews, let me ramble.

Jews have been persecuted by Christians since the day Christ walked on the planet. That’s a lot of years. Why in 1900 years was there no serious move by Jews to go back to Israel?

I’ll tell you why. 

Oil. 

Edwin Drake discovered that you can get oil out of the ground in 1858.  

It was only a matter of time before man figured out that the Middle East was rich in oil.

It was only a matter of time before the elites figured out that oil was essential to warfare.

It was only a matter of time before the elites figured out a way to secure the oil in the Middle East.

Thus Saudi Arabia.

Thus Israel.

To build a state out of nothing takes real money.  It’s not a matter of putting up a sign saying “Jews Welcome.” People have to be organized. Speakers have to speak. Institutions need to be created and financed. Paramilitary organizations need to be clothed and fed.  This takes real money. This kind of money doesn’t come from nickels and dimes from the local synagogue.

The Jews were weaponized by the elites to secure a beachhead in the Middle East.  That is why Israel is armed to the teeth. That is why Israel has nuclear weapons.

When the Middle East is no longer necessary to the securing of riches for the elites, the elites will drop it like a hot potato.

The Jews will be left there holding the bag wondering where everyone went.

Which is why it is essential that the Jews who plan to live in Israel construct friendly relationships with their neighbors.

That would include the Palestinians.

 

www.thejfklie.com

Israeli Bluster

So the latest Israeli blowhard to enter the arena, Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan, states that Israel is closer than ever to entering Gaza to attain security for Israel’s citizens.

Tough talk.

Let’s see how tough he talks in a few months after Israel decides to undertake this mission.

Will Israel win?  Well, it depends upon how you define win.

One thing is for sure, Hamas and the Palestinians have nothing to lose.

Given the horrid conditions they are living under, given Israel’s determination to take the West Bank, given growing world support for Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, it should be clear to the Palestinians that they have little to fight for save honor.

They’re certainly not fighting for Lady Gaga to give a performance.  No, luxuries are not at the top of their list.

I would say they are fixing their bayonets right now.

Israel should be prepared for that.

The problem that Israel faces is not its own means or determination but its overconfidence.

Their young anonymous soldiers have been fed a steady diet of lies about Palestinians for fifty years now.

Israelis have come to accept Palestinians as subhuman cockroaches who celebrate a culture of death.

I don’t think that’s true.  I think Palestinians very much love their children and neighbors. And like Jews they want to be part of the future world.

Any people under siege and outgunned will resort to suicide bombers.  The Japanese did, the Vietnamese did, the Palestinians did.

And what do you know? The very first suicide bombers were the Jewish Zealots who conducted knifings against Roman soldiers in the first century.

Knifings, huh?

So the Jews wrote the book.

The Palestinians are the students.

They learned from their teachers and engaged in suicide bombings.

They’ll do it again

They have nothing to lose.

They’ll do what they have to do.

And more. Humanity is inventive, and necessity is the mother of invention.

Missiles once directed at cities will be more efficiently directed at patrols.

It’s a closer shot with a greater chance of success

Is Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan ready for this?

Is he ready for house to house combat?

I suppose that with proper planning and careful attention to detail it is possible that Israel can achieve a sweeping victory over Hamas with a minimum of bloodshed.

One of Israel’s assumptions may be poor:   That Hamas and Hamas alone is responsible for the instability in Gaza.

In other words, get rid of Hamas and the problem goes away.  This seems to be the same logic that the US bought into during Vietnam:  Get rid of the Viet Cong and the Vietnamese will be peaceful.

Well, the Vietnamese people were the Viet Cong.

In Gaza, I suspect, the Palestinians are Hamas.

Israel, prefers to believe its own bullshit.  They prefer to believe the lies they’ve been promoting through the Western media about Hamas surrounding themselves with unwilling human shields inside nursery schools.

It fits their narrative.

Israel also prefers to believe in their own superiority and the unassailability of the IDF.  This confidence is bolstered by their rabbis infusing them with the nonsense that they are God’s chosen people and that God gave them Israel.

Well, 1) God picks no favorites, 2) God doesn’t give any land to anyone, and 3) God distributes intelligence evenly throughout the spectrum of humanity.  You’re here after millions of years of evolution; if you were that genetically inferior, you and your people wouldn’t be here.

Still Israel believes its own bullshit.  It points to its Nobel Prize winners as proof of Jewish superiority never once asking itself whether other religions emphasize awards and accomplishments let alone Nobel Prizes.

Suppose other cultures emphasize a renunciation of wealth, possessions and awards.  What then?

Hey, here’s a thought: Shouldn’t a master race consider such and temper its arrogance.

And if it does not?

Well, wars aren’t fought on paper  or in the minds of the self-deluded as Israel is about to find out.

Yes, they can kill many Palestinians and “win”.

But at what cost to themselves and the future Israel?

It’s important to ask questions.  The more high quality questions you ask, the better the result generally is.

Does God see everything?   Does God see what hardships Israel has inflicted upon the Palestinians in Gaza?  Do we live in a moral universe?

These are but a few questions the Israeli blowhard, Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan, might ask first.

Intelligent people ask questions.

How to Fix Gaza

Let’s begin with how not to fix Gaza.

What won’t work is what’s being done now.

What will work is what’s not being done now.

Israel should allow unrestricted free flow of goods and services into the Gaza Strip minus of course the obvious – nuclear materials, jets, weapons and so forth.

Justified?  No.

Workable?  Yes.

They should allow those Palestinians who wish to return to their homes within Israel proper the opportunity.

Crazy? Seemingly.

Workable?  Yes.

A small percentage of Palestinians will desire to do so. Many I suspect will remain where they grew up – in the Gaza Strip.

Should the Palestinians fire rockets, the Israelis should take a bunch for the greater good.

A good leader has to take a little blowback.

By not retaliating excessively, the Israelis give peace a chance.

What passes in Gaza can be a model for the West Bank.

Tear down the ugly, ugly checkpoints and barriers and allow people to live where they want to live.

Permit Palestinians free access and free rights to travel.

Will there be more bombings and stabbings?

Yes, but every society has problems.  It takes time to heal wounds.

Instead of creating new enemies, try doing what you know is counterintuitive, unjustified yet workable – patience, understanding and kindness.

Reparations would be a good step.

Yes, but will an olive branch or an offer of kindness be slapped away?

Initially, yes.  People are upset.

In time, the violence will fade.

Long before people were Palestinians and Jews they were people.

And what people want is a happy life, a chance to make a few bucks and the opportunity to contribute.

Give them that, and they’ll be on their way peacefully.

As for the knuckleheads and hardliners who refuse to adjust, well, every society has those.

Treat those people as common criminals not as representatives of Palestinians who desire to annihilate the state of Israel. 

Sometimes you have to try to not  look too hard.  A little benign neglect might help.

Yes, but won’t Israel cease to become a Jewish state?  

No, because elections, like elsewhere, are a joke, a ruse to pacify the masses.  

As Mark Twain once said: If elections mattered, they’d never let us vote.

So too in Israel.

Which is why Israel has no fear of Muslims who, until the creation of the state of Israel, lived peacefully with Jews for centuries.

So live peacefully together again.

Arabs and Jews live across the street from each other in the United States.

Do what we do in America:  Romanticize your past with lies that never happened.  Create heroes who perform impossible feats like throwing a shekel across the Jordan River.

People eat that up. 

The alternative to doing business as usual will be far worse.

As a former soccer player, Bibi should understand that it’s never good policy to underestimate your opponent.

The player who has the upper hand and thinks that he has the game all wrapped up soon finds himself on the losing end.

So, assuming that Bibi, President for Life, decides to have a change of heart, can what is suggested here be implemented?

Not over night, that’s for sure.  There has been too much suffering.

Changing everything overnight would be disastrous.  It would be like asking a hard-core heroin addict to go cold turkey.

It’s not like the people are being asked to give up chocolate, which by the way was relatively unavailable to the people of Gaza prior to 2007 thanks to restrictions.  

Hatred like heroin is powerfully addicting.

But if a reasonable but not ridiculous goal of twenty years was set, there is no reason why change can not occur at 5% per annum.

It sounds like it’s worth a try.

Rethinking Israel

What can Jews and Christians do to prevent another Holocaust?

Not what they’re doing now.

The current thinking is to have a homeland, Israel, where Jews can find safe haven.

It seems like a good idea.

And I would say that it would be a good idea if man were smart.

But if man were smart in making this move, wouldn’t we have gotten an  invitation by now to join the League of Planets?

We haven’t which should concern us.

Maybe we should rethink this whole Israel thing.   Maybe we’re going down the wrong path.  

You know, when the concept of Israel was first proposed there were many Jews who opposed its creation.

One of the arguments against Israel and its inevitable accompanying doctrine of Aliyah, the right of return, is that it would put Jews in a position of having dual loyalty.  It was feared that this would cause automatic distrust of those Jews remaining in their native country.

Another argument was that creating a Jewish homeland doesn’t address the issue of why Jews are persecuted.

Perhaps the principle objection, though, was that secular nationalism would replace observance of the Jewish faith; in other words, Jews would cease becoming Jews.  

Well, they were right on the money about that because right now so-called Jews and their so-called Christian supporters are engaging in very un-Jewish and un-Christian behavior in the Middle East.  And if it’s one thing that makes God testy, it’s people behaving immorally.

You would think that our leadership of so-called Christians and so-called Jews in the United States and Israel would have read the OT, but if you thought that you would be wrong.  They go to church and temple to get elected.

The OT is replete with stories of civilizations that have turned away from God and consequently come to ruination.

Since the current leadership in both countries doesn’t care about ancient wisdom, I will assume that they will bring us to ruination also.

Have they ever read a book?  Trump hasn’t, except his own, of course.

The body count in the Middle East is staggering.  The pure evil unleashed by ISIS, now known to be created and supported by the US and Israel (Saudis too), is heartbreaking.

God sees everything.

In which case, it might be a good idea to start thinking of other solutions to save the so-called Jews and so-called Christians who authored this mayhem.

We may want to include ourselves also for permitting these bozos to drag us into this mess.

Thinking we’re safe because we have an iron dome or a six-hundred ship Navy isn’t a solution, so here’s a novel thought:  How about following the vision of JFK who believed that leaders should empower people?

What if the US and Israel strengthened the average citizen living in Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Jordan and Lebanon?

What if our leaders who graduate from fancy business schools understood that the purpose of a business or a government is not to make money but to add value to the average citizen’s life?

Would that be something God would approve of?
