Mass murder of Palestinians

Loading…

Monday, May 21, 2018

I am shocked and ashamed that our government supports the current murderous regime of Israel. I don't understand how we, as American citizens, can stand by and calmly observe the unwarranted murder of more than 50 Palestinians and the wounding and maiming of hundreds more by the Israeli police and military.

Where is the outrage in the American mainstream media over this massacre? Where is the outrage in the American Congress over this massacre? Could it be that the American media and Congress are excessively influenced by the government of Israel? Could it be that the government of Israel sets the foreign policy of America in exchange for all the money that goes to American politicians from rich folks who are in bed with the Israeli government?

I'm just sayin' it surely looks mighty fishy to me that America condemned apartheid in South Africa but seems to fully support apartheid in Palestine. Wassup wid dat? As a proven American patriot, I hereby call for the American government to stand up for American values all around the world — including in Palestine. And I call for my fellow citizens to have the courage to insist on a two-state solution for the Palestinian mess. That would be in our country's best interest in the long run. Otherwise we will be continuously involved in violent unrest in the Middle East. If we good citizens don't speak out, who will?

I urge Rep. G.K. Butterfield to vote no on bill H53/S52. This bill has already been presented to the legislature (H575) in 2017. It was not passed then and should not be passed now. It is obviously a method to curtail the rights of people to their reproductive health.

Reps. McElraft, Turner and…

Well folks I was going to focus my writing on just art matters. However, after listening again to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s street sweeper speech I’m inclined to combine the two.

Firstly if you have never heard it, just search MLK street sweeper and be prepared to be uplifted and…

I read with interest Ralph Tyson’s letter (Republicanism betrays the people, Feb. 7). He stresses “We the People.” Correct, and we the people elected Donald Trump — get over it!

He goes on to say Republicans are not constitutionalists — why don’t you…

Just a few short years ago our community came together to help fund the addition of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Vidant Hospital due to the large number of low birth weight babies being born in our region. This state-of-the-art facility helps these tiny persons in their struggle for life…

As I visit metropolitan areas to our west, there is clear evidence that many communities have effectively converged on their priorities in very visible ways. And when there is convergence, it seems as if progress is inescapable. I have grandchildren now, and they have experienced numerous…

Kudos to Holly Garriott, executive director for Pitt County Arts Council at Emerge, and to ECU professor of music, Carroll V. Dashiell Jr., for coordinating the amazing African American Music Series.

Concerts take place at Emerge Gallery on Evans Street on the second Friday of the month. If you…

A big shout-out to Alison Lord Stuart for her piece on voter IDs in Tuesday’s paper.

You are right on the “mark” regarding voter IDs. My husband and I have lived in many states, all of which required a voter ID at election time — until we came to North Carolina.

At each…

Last night (Monday, Feb. 11) I attended ECU baseball banquet in the new student union. There were almost 600 people there and they were treated to a great program.

Some facts that were revealed were that this team has a 3.44 grade point average which is the highest in the American Athletic…

Donald Trump once again exhibited his extreme ignorance, irrationality and intransigence in contradicting the analysis of his three top intelligence chiefs before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Jan. 29. It's hard to imagine how pompous a person must be to think he knows more than his FBI…

Mr. Kammerer's fine article on the Jones-Lee House (in The Daily Reflector on Sunday) highlights the urgent need to save one of the few remaining architectural structures of historic and aesthetic value left in our poor city.

Years and years of willful destruction and bureaucratic neglect pushed by…
