A "Real" Comprehensive Economic Revitalization Plan

"America became the greatest, most prosperous nation in human history through low taxes, constitutionally limited government, personal freedom and a belief in sound money. We need to return to these principles so our economy can thrive again."

Anti-Zionism & Anti-Israelism is now Anti-Semitism

"Campus Anti-Semitism reports that many college campuses throughout the United States continue to experience incidents of anti-Semitism, a serious problem warranting further attention. Anti-Israeli or anti-Zionist propaganda has been disseminated on many campuses that include traditional anti-Semitic elements, including age-old anti-Jewish stereotypes and defamation. For example claiming that the Jew are responsible for the killing of Christ or alleging that Zionism is racism."

Bahraini paper slams US, UNSC policies

"A Bahraini paper points out and condemns US and UNSC double-standard policies on Iran's nuclear activities and the Israeli atrocities in Gaza."

Israel: a cancer on Jewish conscience

"Palestinians are effectively incarcerated. The overwhelming majority can't leave or enter Gaza. Without fuel and spare parts, public health conditions are declining steeply as water and sanitation services struggle to function. The electricity supply is sporadic and has been reduced further along with fuel supply in these past days. UNICEF reports that the partial functioning of Gaza City's main pumping station is effecting the supply of 600,000 people. Medication is in short supply and hospitals are paralyzed by power failures and the shortage of fuel for generators. Hospital infrastructure and essential pieces of equipment are breaking down at an alarming rate, with limited possibility of repair or maintenance as spare parts are not available. Concrete is in such short supply that people are unable to make graves for their dead. Hospitals are handing out sheets as funeral shrouds."

And, the world stands by in silence because the atrocites sited above are being committed by "God's Chosen People."

Gaza's last gasp

"John Dugard, UN special rapporteur on the human rights situation in the Palestinian territories said that "The killing of some 40 Palestinians in Gaza in the past week, the targeting of a government office near a wedding party venue with what must have been foreseen loss of life and injury to many civilians, and the closure of all crossings into Gaza raise very serious questions about Israel's respect for international law and its commitment to the peace process.""

Capitol Hill Honor for Muslim Hero

"New York's young Muslim hero who defended a group of Jewish subway passengers from a racist attack is being honored with an invitation to attend President George Bush's State of the Union address at Capitol Hill."

Turkish PM: Qassam rockets don't kill, Israel does

"Relations between Israel and Turkey have become very tense in the last two days, after Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan claimed that no Israelis have been killed by Qassam missiles, while every Israel Defense Forces attack in the Gaza Strip kills dozens of Palestinians."

Paul Wolfowitz named to chair U.S. advisory panel

"Paul Wolfowitz, an architect of the Iraq war who was forced to resign from the World Bank because of an ethics scandal, will chair a U.S. advisory panel on arms control, the State Department said on Thursday."

The turd that won't flush...

The Strangulation of the Palestinians in Gaza

"The failure on the part of Israel to grasp that this kind of brutal force is deeply counterproductive is perhaps understandable given the demonization of Arabs, and especially Palestinians, in Israeli society. The failure of Washington to intervene -- especially after President Bush's hollow words about peace days before the new fighting began -- is baffling. "

That's what happens when a "Judeo-Christian" nation becomes more Judeo than Christian...

The Sanctions Trap

"The "sanctions trap" is built upon the principles of hubris and procedure, not reason and fact. This is the reason the Bush administration continues to invest so heavily in this process, and why in the end the "sanctions trap," if not prematurely sprung, will in the end lead us to war with Iran ."

Louisiana GOP: Ron Paul stands 2nd

"The Louisiana Republican Party says the state's preliminary results indicate that presidential hopeful Ron Paul has come in second."

Lethal ecstasy pills sold in Israel

"The discovery was made after an Israeli and three Japanese citizens were arrested in Holland in possession of 50,000 pills that appeared to be regular ecstasy."

If the deadly Ecstasy pills are in Israel and Holland, they're in the US.

US diplomats harassed at Israeli checkpoints

"American diplomats continued this week to raise the Civil Administration's ire over their continued refusal to open their car doors or windows and present identification when crossing from Israel into the West Bank."

Deal completed for tax rebates in June

"Congressional leaders completed a deal Thursday with the White House on an economic stimulus package that would give most tax filers refunds of $600 to $1,200, and more if they have children."

Troops felled by a 'trust gap'

"Many in the military are unclear who's in charge or what the overall strategy is. This lack of faith in the nation's most senior commanders - such as in Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Navy Admiral Michael Mullen, who would be czar - by those who actually have to give the orders that send soldiers to their deaths has created a "trust gap". And it is this, not the Iraqi insurgency, that is killing the American military."

Going bankrupt: The US's greatest threat

"A "guns over butter" mentality entrenched in the US political system since the start of the Cold War is starting to cause havoc in the nation which has the largest defense budget in the world, as well as having the largest trade deficit. The US's short tenure as the world's "lone superpower" is over and most of the damage can never be repaired, although trimming the US$1.1 trillion expected to be invested in the Pentagon this year would be a start."

Lies, lies and more lies

"Lewis' Center for Public Integrity in the US has just released a mammoth report saying key players in the George W Bush administration, including the president, made at least 935 false statements in the run-up to and aftermath of the invasion of Iraq in 2003. "This Iraq chronology calls into question the repeated assertions of Bush administration officials that they were merely the unwitting victims of bad intelligence," says Lewis."

Crying (Iranian) wolf in Argentina

"For 13 years the US and Argentina have charged that Iran was behind the fatal fire-bombing of a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires. In November, reported pressure from the two governments led Interpol to "red list" five former Iranian officials and a Hezbollah leader for allegedly masterminding the attack. But a FBI agent and top US diplomats now say no real evidence was ever produced and any link with Iran was at best "flimsy"."

Obama: Israel was "forced" to place Gaza under siege

"All of us are concerned about the impact of closed border crossings on Palestinian families. However, we have to understand why Israel is forced to do this... Israel has the right to respond while seeking to minimize any impact on civilians."

Just one of the many reasons why Barak doesn't get my vote ~ He's just another one of Israel's whores.
