Was the SS Communist? Look at the Nazi Platform – YES!

August 7th, 2017, No Comments

The National Democratic Socialist Party – Another Communist Manifesto Here in America, the Republicans like to talk about ‘values’ and the Democrats, ‘compassion’. Our present-day confusions of politics with morality requires a return to an understanding that human values exist independently of most political platforms. Other than the Middle East, where theocracies either thrive or […]

MY DEMANDS

July 24th, 2017, No Comments

I’m holding the United States Constitution hostage inside American bookstores until you meet a few simple demands. When you look at the shelves where those are located, hear these words in your ears. Born in Washington Heights, N.Y., my grandparents and parents showed the youngest daughter of the house the great potential to be nurtured […]

The Decline and Fall of the Judiciary in the Face of ‘Petty Terrorism’

April 11th, 2017, No Comments

Here in Israel, chemical warfare is ‘up close and personal’, with victims from Syria being treated at the scene and/or transported to larger facilities with life-threatening injuries. Newspapers world-wide are covering the story and military interventions by multi-national forces have begun. Reports of individual attacks remain in the news yet go unprosecuted, despite the fact […]

The Problem of Denial

March 16th, 2017, No Comments

Aeschylus said it best. “In war, truth is the first casualty.” I’m not feeling too well today because of an incident that never happened. A 1993 lawsuit over holocaust denial – a popular form of amnesia among fascists and disappointed humanists – was filed in London. Truth won in that suit but remains a flexible […]

The Attorney General – Your Public Servant

February 11th, 2017, No Comments

I have enough regard for Elizabeth Warren to have sent her a plan for helping the homeless at minimal public expense. Her observations are generally ‘on point’ so I have to admit to some degree of puzzlement about her congressional grand-standing over the appointment of Jeff Sessions to the office of attorney general. The sacrifices […]

Israel In Flames

November 24th, 2016, No Comments

Terrorism has taken another route in Israel – fires have been burning out of control while multiple countries sent additional planes to drop water on our desert nation.  The city of Haifa, home to many University students and hi-tech industries is the latest blaze requiring tens of thousands to be evacuated.  The latest bulletin stated that […]

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 […]

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 […]
