The Red Sea-Dead Sea Project Excludes Palestinians

Ever since Jews began returning to their ancestral land during the late 1990s, they and indigenous peoples of the region have thought of some sort of project that would transfer seawater from the Gulf of Aqaba at the northern end of the Red Sea northward to empty into the Dead Sea largely to restore its previous salinity and surface level.For thousands of years, the surface of the Dead Sea has been the lowest place on earth. Nowadays, it is over 1,400 feet below sea level and decreasing over … [Read more...]

Does Donald Trump Still Not Like Losers?

Thirteen polls had Donald Trump easily winning the Republican caucasus in Iowa this week. Most people were shocked when Ted Cruz won, beating The Donald by four points and Trump barely edging out Marco Rubio. That makes Trump a loser.Donald Trump said last year about Arizona Senator John McCain--a decorated Viet Nam war hero for spending five years as a captured U.S. Navy prisoner and sometimes brutally tortured--that McCain got caught and therefore was not a war hero but "a loser." The … [Read more...]

Charlie Rose Interviews Donald Rumsfield

Yesterday on his television program, Charlie Rose interviewed former U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfield. He served in President George W. Bush's administration during the 2003 Iraq War. That's when the U.S. led the UN coalition forces in overthrowing dictatorial Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. The coalition forces attacked Iraq on the supposition that it had nuclear weapons, which turned out to be wrong. Nearly all of the world nowadays concludes that due to this error, this war was a … [Read more...]

What Did Facebook Users Talk About Most in 2014 and 2015?

What did people talk about the most last year, in 2015? The little Gaza Strip made the top ten in 2014.

Facebook has a new feature--telling us its users are talking about most.As of the third quarter in 2015, Facebook had 1.55 billion users.

New Gun Laws?

I was born and reared in Seattle, Washington, went to college in Houston, Texas, and lived in metro-Houston for nearly forty years. This new year begins with a new handgun law in Seattle and one in Texas that are very different. In my (I hope) humble opinion, Seattle's law reflects sanity and Texas' law reflects our wild, wild West of yesteryears.Henceforth, each handgun purchased in Seattle will be accompanied by a $25 tax charge and an ammunition tax of two to five cents for each round … [Read more...]

Golda, that's true, but its not true.A few years ago, the U.S. Geological Survey did test wells in the seabed of the Eastern Mediterranean Sea and discovered it has some of the richest natural gas, and probably oil, deposits in the … [Read more...]

Two-State Solution Grows More Urgent Due to Population Figures

The peace process for solving the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict is dead. Many experts say the two-state solution also is dead. I say it is isn't dead, but the traditional two-state solution is dead. It is that the Palestinians establish a state in the two separated territories of the Gaza Strip and West Bank or a Swiss-cheese West Bank that skirts all of those 120 Jewish settlements in there that are illegal according to the UN, of which Israel is a member.This tradtional … [Read more...]
