Helen Thomas Resigns: He who plants thorns must never expect to gather roses.

The well-known and respected Helen Thomas, White House correspondent from the Kennedy administration to the Obama administration, was forced to resign for speaking out against the state of Israel.

Is Israel for or against peace? The assault by Israeli commandos on a Turkish ship carrying activists bringing humanitarian aid to Gaza certainly makes one wonder if Israel is for or against peace. As usual, Israel’s allies are slow to condemn this terrible act, including the US. The US is showing their other ally Turkey that the […]

Netanyahu Defies Allies Over Settlements: Ears that do not listen to advice accompany the head when it is chopped off.

Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime Minister, and his government are defying the United States’ pressure to stop controversial building projects in disputed parts of Jerusalem. The U.N.

Hillary Clinton Rebukes Israel: The anger of a woman is mighty and the devil’s trickery weak.

Killing of Hamas Operative: Evil knows where evil sleeps.

But they were caught on video and left behind what appears to be significant evidence. The killers used European stolen passports. Mossad, the […]

No attention is paid to him who is always complaining.

At the U.N. General Assembly, most of the world leaders have spoken. President Ahmadinejad of Iran has spoken, too. Iran, the state sponsoring terrorism in present and the past, has basically the same attitude as a whiner.
