Sins of Our Fathers : al-Nakba

Victors’ celebrations harbor shadows that lurk in the soul as revelers dance in remembrance, burying in laughter the suffering screams of those displaced and destroyed, furiously hiding forgotten faces framed in fear from mocking the glorious dance should they be awakened once more by the reverie.

Jim Wall Attacked By “Plastic Activist”

The oppression and occupation of the Palestinians is not a matter for the Methodists or Presbyterians or Catholics or Muslims or Jews or any denomination across the planet; it is the responsibility of humans everywhere.

William Cook : In Defense of Guenter Grass

Guenter Grass warns the people of the world as well as the Jewish people of the dangers inherent in the actions of the Zionist controlled government of the State of Israel.

PCN — “Disavowal” of Gilad Atzmon ? The Truth be damned!

Disavowal: “…a mental act that consists in rejecting the reality of a perception.” Atzmon distinguishes among those who follow the Judaic religion; those who regard themselves as a human being who happens to be of Jewish origin; and those who put their Jewishness over and above all other traits.

Yet Another War for Israel

Voltaire’s wit often illuminates truth. Consider this revealing “thought” as expressed recently in Alert, the voice of AIPAC to its membership.

Voters Choice: Ron Paul or Bibi Netanyahu

A curious glance at the current crop of presidential candidates makes it clear that Ron Paul stands alone when it comes to the issue of US engagement in foreign wars.

America’s Chickens Are Coming Home to Roost

Prophets fare poorly in their own country, yet countries would do well to hearken to their prophets. Scorn, ridicule, and innuendo attend their pronouncements as the righteous defend their actions as logical, existential and necessary.

End of Year Lament and the NDAA 2012

Prophets fare poorly in their own country, yet countries would do well to hearken to their prophets. Scorn, ridicule, and innuendo attend their pronouncements as the righteous defend their actions as logical, existential and necessary.

Newt Unleashes His Tetrodotoxin at the Palestinians

Many “Newts” produce toxins, the rough skinned Taricha, for example, produces enough to kill an adult human, and while all “Newts” go through a metamorphosis from tadpole to lizard, few expected that metamorphosis to reach human form in the person of the front running Republican candidate for President, Newt Gingrich

A World United for Human Rights

Today the American people, in concert with their brothers and sisters around the world, proclaim the rights to which they are entitled by birth and citizenship, by Constitutional law and Proclamation, and by membership in the collective body of nations that has universalized recognition of these rights for all humanity.

At the UN: the Speech by the US President that Might Have Been

“Man's capacity for justice makes democracy possible, but man's inclination to injustice makes democracy necessary.” Reinhold Niebuhr

The Loneliness of the Falling Man

Unforgettable, Catastrophic, a frozen image of Human Suffering, Desperation, Forlornness, Loneliness in the Last seconds of Light and Life before Everlasting Darkness.

The Desperation of the Fool

The Likud’s Platform states it as bluntly as it can be stated: “The Government of Israel flatly rejects the establishment of a Palestinian Arab state west of the Jordan River.”

The Death of Democracy

“The right to freedom of expression is a fundamental one, necessary to protect the exercise of all other human rights in democratic societies because it is essential for holding governments accountable to the public” (Human Rights Watch, “When Speech Offends,” February-March 2006).

US Knesset Resolution 185 Reconsidered: To be or Not To Be American

America’s Coming Nakba (Catastrophe)

With America forced to do bidding of its adopted child by the “corpocracy” and its unending need for wars to sustain economic growth, America finds itself weak as its forces futilely attempt to contain terrorism

Nakba: a Remembrance

The plight of the Palestinians that began so ruthlessly in 1947, and is now called the Nakba, was an intentional, calculated campaign to force the Palestinian Arabs out of Palestine.


Richard Goldstone’s journey from Justice to Sinner represents the spiritual act of dying in the Zionist world. By recanting his own report he has attempted to break the bonds that cast him into the sufferings in Caina, Antenora, and Judecca where, in Dante’s Inferno, those treacherous to their own, are removed from the light and warmth of their kin, their country, and their masters and suffer eternal damnation in the remorseless dead center of the ice in the most bottomless circle of Hell.

WILLIAM COOK : Tsunami in the Mid-East

It’s curious to consider how events in one part of the world offer images that reflect conditions in another part, as the devastation in Japan provides a glimpse into the eruptions spreading throughout the mid-east. The suddenness of the tsunami

What Does It Profit a Congressman to Retain His Office but Suffer the Loss...

Two months from now Americans will be subjected to the humiliating spectacle of their Representatives and Senators crawling down AIPAC’s plush red carpet to the podium at its annual conference where they will obsequiously laud this bloody organization with words of praise, outdoing each other in pitiful patronizing phrases, in unquestioning obedience to their masters.

WILLIAM COOK: “We the Forgotten People of the United States…”

We thought we had used the democratic process to rid our country of George W. Bush by the peaceful election of a man who told Americans he would right the wrongs of that Zionist Cabal. Instead we have a houseboy doing the chores of his Mars, Netanyahu. How far can he fall? Is there no principle, no obsequious cringing, no personal shame he will not endure to pay homage to his masters?
