Does Herman Cain know how far African Americans have come? A river that forgets its source will soon dry out

Hateful rhetoric to score a political point is dangerous. Hateful rhetoric coming from a man of color — in this case, Herman Cain — is troubling. Cain, an African American GOP presidential candidate, has said that he will not feel comfortable appointing a Muslim to his cabinet.  A popular saying that I learned as child was “don’t […]

The West was never bothered before that Mubarak wasn’t a democrat: If a dog offers to help you across the river, don’t ask if he is suffering from mange

The way President Mubarak of Egypt has been dumped in the mud by his “friends” in the West is unbelievable. Only the state of Israel has been consistent in their support and show of gratitude to a man who, for thirty years, has been an important ally and prevented the destruction of Israel by Muslim extremists. In France, […]

Her write-in bid for the US Senate has been criticized by her opponents after her loss in the GOP primaries. Joe Miller’s loss is a shared loss for him and Sarah Palin. Palin and Murkowski seem to have bad blood […]

Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of a Hamas founder, has revealed in a new book “Son of Hamas” that he was a Shin Bet spy for 10 years. The news is a shock in Gaza and among the Palestinian people. Of course the reaction of Hamas was to deny that he was part of their organization. […]

If man is a river, then woman is a bridge.

The nomination of judge Sotomayor as Supreme Court Justice is certainly the news of the moment. I have been reading about her life and am very inspired by it. From where she was to where she is today, I have say it is a great achievement. She has been nominated not because she is a […]

A little rain each day will fill the river to overflowing.

Even after being hit hard in the past weeks by the Israeli army for shooting rockets, it seems that the terrorist group Hamas (or resistance group for it supporters) didn’t learn their lesson. Hamas fired five rockets into Israel. For those who have been following this deadly conflict, the scenario is the same. The rain […]

You can’t feed your children with the fish that are still in the river.

Don’t mistake this picture for Berlin. More than 100,000 people came to watch and listen to Senator Obama in Missouri Saturday. In his speech he warned his supporters to stay focused and not let their guards down based on the polls. The election is not won yet. As the Fang of Gabon say, “You can’t […]

Those who want to swim in peace in the river must bribe the crocodile.

In bad times, the blame game is common in American politics. But those responsible for this financial crisis are: politicians, Wall Street and the American people for their naivety. Watch this and judge for yourself. (Thanks to New Politicus and Wisebread.com.) The bailout bill was signed by President Bush. It was tough labor for both […]

You can’t insult a crocodile before crossing the river.

The lesson to learn about the Georgia-Russia conflict is that the us didn’t protect their “ally” Georgia while the Russians were hitting them hard. Dick Cheney‘s trip to Georgia is like firefighters showing up after the house already burned down. President Saakashvili of Georgia, the best advice is to not challenge your powerful neighbor. You […]

If you hide your s*** at the bottom of the river, it will eventually come to the surface.

Senator Edwards, Your actions were morally wrong ! Your admission of an affair symbolized the end of your political career. After denying the rumor of your affair, you finally confessed. As the Malinkes of Mali say,”If you hide your s*** at the bottom of the river, it will eventually come to the surface.” http://www.nytimes.com/2008/08/09/us/politics/09edwards.html?_r=2&ref=us&oref=slogin&oref=slogin
