An Attack on Edward Said's Legacy Glick's attack on Said, and her attempt to tie his work into the protests that followed George Floyd's murder, shows how frightened the defenders of one racist state, Zionist Israel, become when their principle ally, the United States, comes under attack for racist practices.

Woodrow Wilson's Racism And His Support For Zionism Wilson became the 28th president of the United States (1913-1921). He led the United States into World War I, was instrumental in the founding of the League of Nations, appointed the first Jewish member of the Supreme Court and, notably, facilitated the eventual establishment of a "Jewish national home" in Palestine.

COVID Madness Both politicians and the populace appeared to have given up and, as one of those sloganeering signs put it, silently agreed to "sacrifice the weak and reopen." And almost everywhere they did reopen, the COVID-19 virus returned with a vengeance.

U.S. Urban Rebellions Revisited The protests are no longer just about the murder of one African American. They are now about the inability of the justice system to deliver justice within an interminably unjust America. When the state loses legitimacy in the eyes of citizens, all that is left is the violence of mass suppression. And that is a one way road to hell for all us no matter what our race.

National Values: Reality or Propaganda Joe Biden, presumptive Democratic Party presidential candidate, thinks he knows what American values are. Here are some of them: "inclusivity, tolerance, diversity, respect for the rule of law." Biden defines these as among the "democratic values that define us."

From Wuhan to Baghdad with Trump and Bush Donald Trump and George W. Bush are both know-nothing Republican leaders. They are know-nothing in the sense that neither of them know the difference between their own desires and objective reality.

Where Is Joe Biden? The Where's Waldo? puzzle has recently lent its iconic title to a different question: "Where's Joe Biden?" Because Biden is the prospective Democratic presidential nominee, this question denotes more than a puzzle game. Joe Biden should be a lot more visible than at present.

Is Anti-Zionism a Form of Antisemitism?, From YouTubeVideos
SHARE More Sharing        Tuesday, April 7, 2020
An Attack On Free Speech Zionists are making every effort to encourage laws that make criticism of Israel illegal because, they claim, it is ipso facto anti-Semitic. The weaponization of anti-Semitism maliciously defames individuals, corrupts legal systems and also threatens any reasonable notion of free speech.

A Pandemic Comes to the U.S. No one really knows where Covid-19 originated. We do know that there was an initial outbreak in Wuhan, China, among people who worked in a market that sold wild animals, but some of these animals were imported into China, so the Covid-19 strain that is causing all this trouble could well have originated further afield.

The Democratic Party On The Brink The failure to see the need to manage change, and instead adhere to a traditional and increasingly unresponsive status quo, is a formula for failure. The recent history of the Republican Party shows what happens when an institution fails to respond to discord in such a way. It may now be that the Democratic Party is following the same self-destructive path.

Tales of Student Torment As a Palestinian student at Haifa University observed, "you can't escape the feeling of alienation when you are an Arab student in the Israeli universities. On the one hand, you are in an academic environment, but on the other hand you are surrounded with guns. It has reached a point where it's difficult to see the contradiction.

A Culture of Cheating? Cheating, along with its partner habitual lying, undermines both communities and institutions: everything from marriage to commerce, to science, to government. Nothing can stand firm before them once these vices become normative. That is what makes Donald Trump so unacceptable -- he represents a social climate wherein honesty can never be assumed.

Death by Illogic, Lies and Stupidity On 3 January 2020, Trump personally ordered the assassination of General Qassem Soleimani -- which, by the way, may well have been unconstitutional because it was done without prior consultation with Congress.

Deteriorating Climates Thanks to President Trump's conspicuous habit of acting out both his narrow-minded, often bigoted, conceits (legal and otherwise) and his adolescent frustrations. In behaving this way, Trump has, by his own example, liberated the seedy, sleazy and sordid among the American population.
