Is Your Home in Ruins?

September 9th, 2016, No Comments

We’ve seen the awful sights of Syria’s ruined cities, smoke emanating from the rubble of buildings that used to be homes. The story of those abandoning the destruction is well known to newspaper readers and television viewers via the images of the Syrians trudging towards transportation and the hope of shelter. Earlier blog posts here […]

HUMAN(IST) – Do Not Assimilate!

August 24th, 2016, No Comments

In my slow travels through the warmer places of the world, I’ve visited countries where neo-Nazis like ‘Golden Dawn‘ hold parliamentary seats. But then, I’ve lived in New Hampshire, USA where swastikas adorned the necks of young men who beat up elderly Jews in supermarket parking lots. In Holland, two elderly Jewish survivors of the […]

Modernizing the Hitler Youth

August 7th, 2016, No Comments

http://www.timesofisrael.com/belgian-jewish-student-gassed-with-deodorant-by-classmates-in-showers/ This blog has a long history of detailing incidents of chemical poisoning by both accident and intent. Following the Environmental Protection Agency’s request that I litigate my own chemical injuries due to negligence, my medical and legal files showed ongoing harassment resulting from that action. A settlement offer was never made and my lawyer […]

What About The Hague? International Answers for ISIS Prisoners

June 15th, 2016, No Comments

The Netherlands is also the hinterland for international justice. An international appeal is now warranted to that August body for help with an international crisis. We are faced with a quandary in the form of ISIS that you may not understand first hand from your living room sofa. I divide my time between America, where […]

The Pregnant Male

March 27th, 2016, No Comments

Men are faced with an interesting problem when a wife (or girlfriend) tells them they are about to become a father. Paternity ought to give leave to thoughts about a father’s role in the birth process. Perhaps paternity leave for fathers should be offered during the wife’s pregnancy instead of afterwards? It’s an undeniable fact […]

“If You See Something, Say Something”

December 3rd, 2015, No Comments

From Sarin in the Tokyo subways to anthrax in the post offices of the Eastern Seaboard in the USA, biological injuries are not to be ignored. The public is remarkably reticent about reporting these problems despite a frightening familiarity with headache onset at the dry cleaner, dizziness at the nail salon and nausea when passing […]

Dear Bill Maher, Isn’t Humanism Also a Religion?

April 12th, 2015, No Comments

Dear Mr. Maher, Thank you, along with many other comedic pundits who have helped so many of us laugh in understanding over the years. Tonight, I’m writing to look into your opinions about humanism, as opposed to religion. I truly enjoy your pokes at ‘dogmatism’ but also believe that to be a characteristic of humanists […]

PASSPORTS: In Space and In Time

March 16th, 2015, 1 Comment

Written in the Negev Desert. After determining the time was right to return to Israel from the USA, I reviewed the various ways that was managed. This would be a return even if I hadn’t already made my first visit to ‘The Land’ in 2013. A Jewish person is called a Yehudi, a Hebrew word […]

Memories of the Future

February 11th, 2015, No Comments

I just moved to Israel where there is no fear of open discussion with regards to the rise in anti-Semitism around the world. Much suppressed in the US, where I was raised to believe my encounters with Jew-haters were isolated events, I now realize those memories are of the future. Feeling free in my NYC […]

‘Ultra Nationalism’ – An Oxymoron for the Ages

December 28th, 2014, No Comments

To tell you the truth, I’m sick and tired of watching the equivalent of present-day Nazis hide behind the ridiculous label of “ultra-nationalism’. A person claiming to advocate nationalism from the point of view of a given group is promoting the framer’s view of their identity. Reform efforts still fall within boundaries intended by the […]
