Israel Is Engaged In Systematic Self-Destruction One cannot blame Netanyahu alone. It is the Likud party that has enabled him over the years to chip away brick-by-brick at Israel's democracy, undermine the judiciary, discriminate against Israeli Arabs as well as Jews of color, alienate the American Jewish community, and torpedo any prospect of a peaceful solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Trump's Disastrous Domestic Policy Sadly, we have become accustomed to Trump's lies and misstatements about the presumed progress the US made under his watch. It's time to take a hard look at his domestic policy, which is inflicting terrible damage and anguish on the majority of Americans.

"...I Am Proud To Be A Socialist" Enacting rules and regulations and fostering a sense of national unity while embracing the premise that human beings have equal rights, which the constitution provides, does not negate capitalism but in fact enhances it. Anything to do with human rights matters.

The Travesty of the Century By what logic Trump can assume upon himself the political, religious, and moral right to divide an occupied land between Israel and the Palestinians in defiance of all previous accords and internationally recognized agreements?

Trump's and Netanyahu's Folly Israel has, for all intents and purposes, given itself the license to do whatever it pleases in the Palestinian territories, including building settlements, erecting barriers and fences, demolishing Palestinian homes, and restricting their movement.

Trump's Dreadful Foreign Policy Trump has no coherent foreign policy doctrine, no understanding of historical perspective, and no knowledge of the intricacies of various regional conflicts. He is dismissive of alliances, unbound by international agreements; he is erratic, unfettered, and issues policy directives based on "gut feelings."

Killing Soleimani Undermines Global Order The Ukraine debacle, which blew up in Trump's face and those of his top political advisers, pales in comparison to the assassination of Soleimani, which brought us to the verge of war with Iran -- a war that would have made the Iraq war look like child's play.

Stepping Back From the Brink of War Trump must realize that Iran cannot be bullied and the only way to prevent it from pursuing nuclear weapons is through dialogue. Iran and the US need to lick their wounds and begin a new chapter, however long and arduous it may be, because war is not and will never be an option.

The ABCs Of Trump's Path To Impeachment Finally, Trump was impeached on December 18. It is a sad day for America because for the House of Representatives to resort to such an historically rare punitive act suggests that Trump's transgressions have been so severe that the House was compelled to take such a drastic measure.

2020 Will Be More Turbulent Than 2019, Unless... The year 2020 will most likely be as turbulent if not more so than 2019 due mainly to the lack of American leadership and the rush of other powers, especially Russia, China, and to a lesser extent Turkey and Iran, to fill the vacuum the US is leaving behind.

The Butcher of Ankara's Visit to the House of Lies Our adversaries will bask in the notion that the US is no longer guided by any moral principles. Inviting Erdogan to Washington, when Kurdish blood is still fresh on his hands, only confirms that Trump has no scruples and that under his leadership, today's friends may well become the enemies of tomorrow.

We Must Not Grow Numb To The Yazidi Genocide Regardless of their outcry for help and continued suffering, the international community is not providing the necessary financial aid to rebuild the Yazidis' homes and villages. They try desperately to make their case known to whomever they can talk to, especially passing journalists who can spread the word about their unbearable condition.

Trump's Disgraceful Letter To Erdogan There is no wonder that every person and news outlet that saw Trump's letter to Turkey's president Erdogan thought it was a joke.

An Act Of Betrayal And Infamy Trump's decision was also largely motivated by his financial interest in Turkey, which goes back many years to 2012, with the opening of Trump Towers in Istanbul. To think though, that the President of the United States would sell America's interests and abandon its allies for the sake of personal financial gain is not merely outrageous but criminal. To me, this amounts to nothing less than treason.

Israel's Fractured Democracy And Its Repercussions Israel made tremendous strides in just about all walks of life, but Israel's democracy is faltering.
