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 was out of state when Sen. John McCain passed away and I just wanted to thank him for being the true American who served his country beyond the call of duty.

I was part of the maintenance crew from Norton Air Force Base in San Bernardino, California, that prepared the C-141 cargo airplanes that…

During the summer, while seated in a local eatery waiting to order a bagel, I encountered a stranger who placed my order (gratis).  With my permission, we chatted briefly and shared a few commonalities (one of which was arthritis). As we seperated, I expressed appreciation and left feeling…

For someone to support this president after everything he has said and done must require a boatload of cognitive dissonance and is truly a Faustian bargain.

What if it was your sister whose (expletive deleted) he grabbed and bragged about it? What if Obama said that? If you wouldn't give him the…

Inspiration comes from the oddest places sometimes.

I was reading an IGN article about how Sony refuses to open its PlayStation consoles to cross-platform gameplay for the popular video game Fortnite due to Sony’s longstanding rivalry with Xbox owner Microsoft.

It got me wondering as to why…

Why does Trump show respect to Sen. John McCain only after he dies? We all remember what Trump said about McCain: I only like people who are not captured. McCain was a Navy pilot who was shot down and was a POW for over five years.

This coming from a coward like Trump who would not join the…

As a product of public education and the daughter of a public-school teacher, I wholeheartedly support the Red4Ed movement. Attending May 2018’s march in Raleigh did nothing but reinforce my beliefs in the need for more funding for education, including raising teacher salaries. The sheer…

Hurricanes and dangerous stormwater don’t wait around for elected officials to produce expensive studies for the shelf, kick crises down the road, and ponder political calculations. Greenville has a documented $350 million stormwater infrastructure challenge to avoid dangerous flooding. Dilly…

“Location, location, location” is not only the real estate agent’s mantra. It applies even more to meteorologists. And perhaps it applies to you if you read your gauge faithfully and record the totals.

Depending on where you live, this summer’s precipitation totals have…

According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers survey in 2017, the most pressing world issue for millennials is climate change. Ninety-one percent of those surveyed agreed with the statement that “science has proven that humans are responsible for climate change.”

Summer is over and conversations about using reusable straws and saving the sea turtles are dying down now that we’re all not in “beach-mode” anymore. The tag #strawlesssummer focuses on a single object and time frame, and I don’t believe that it creates a lasting impact.…
