  • Top Ten Wish List Progressives should Press on President Obama
    • Excellent! Prof. Cole, how about tweaking the title and replacing progressives with "we the people" or just people?! These issues are so important they should be read by everyone- no labels, just common sense.

  • Muslims are no Different, or why Bill Maher's blood libel is Bigotry
    • I agree with you Kathleen, I watched the movie closely to see if Maher was able to see the irony of some aspects of Judaism and treat it as irreverently as the other religions and indeed it was not. It is strange that he has such innate loyalty since he was raised Catholic and didn't realize his mother was Jewish until his teen years or later maybe.

      He seems fervently loyal to the state of Israel. And gets passionately bothered when Jeanine Garafulo states her opinion. Here's the clip.

  • Happy Palestine Land Day: Israel Earmarks 10% of West Bank for Settlements: White
    • Isn't the existential argument getting old?? Israel exists. It is. It is there. It is present. It has population, government, huge military, healthcare, educational institutions, is in the news on a daily basis.... why is this "existence" thing a topic? Obviously Israel exists, why are we constantly laboring over this? No one is really threatening its' existence....are we really supposed to believe this constant chatter?

      Seems to me after 60 years of identity, continued regional conflict, aggression, countless illegal actions and numerous violations of international laws----the world can't help but know that indeed Israel does indeed exist but is does not exist in peace.

      Is all this "existence" talk just a distraction from the inability for Israel to create a peaceful state with contiguous borders and respect for all who live in and around the area? Is Netanyahu the wizard of Oz---pushing all the buttons? "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain" Israel is better than what it is.

  • Israel to Demolish Solar Energy panels for Palestinians
    • What a waste. How discouraging if this is the route they choose to follow.
      When will the US pay attention to this situation of humanitarian abuse?--that the USA is directly funding.

      Here's what the group is doing to help.

  • Mubarak Defies a Humiliated America, Emulating Netanyahu
    • Excellent, excellent article.
      The high-minded beliefs of the US are nearly all but dead. We are in a stranglehold between a corporatist-profits over people centered government, the MIC and misplaced loyalties by way of $$$$ to Israel. When one of those three gets tired of suffocating us, the others pick up.

      The largest entitlement program of the US government is making weapons, handing over huge sums of money to countries who buy the weapons and making our own wars. If corporations could expend their energies making
      anything else, (preferably green technology) we could hold our heads up high.
