Peace will come with justice

I consider myself a cult survivor. I was raised in the cult of Atheist-Zionism-Posing-as-Judaism. I stated this to a few select friends several years ago, and they thought it was funny. The statement brought with it a … [more]

How many shades of gray?

Martin McGuinness dies: The ‘super-terrorist who became a super-statesman – like so many others

By Robert Fisk, Tuesday 21 March 2017 07:45 GMT

 

Martin McGuinness followed along the familiar trail of so many enemies of Britain’s weary colonial history. A “super-terrorist” becomes a super-statesman. Jomo Kenyatta comes to mind. And Archbishop Makarios. And of course, Menachem Begin. With blood on their hands, they pass through that mist of nobility bestowed by colonial power and former rulers – and re-emerge … [more]

And few there be that find it

 

 

The evangelical bloc

 

Dear editor:

Even though Donald Trump won the presidential election legitimately, the extreme liberal side still cannot understand how he really won, nor can they stop their ugly and harmful opposition. Even though they are loud and very organized, they are only hurting themselves, not helping our nation and certainly don’t represent the majority of Americans who still hold to conservative family values.

These extreme liberals have tried to say that Trump won because … [more]

Underlying essence of the United States

How Trump Finally Made This Israeli Arab Feel at Home in America

By Sayed Kashua, Feb 04, 2017 4:23 PM

 

At long last, after two-and-a-half years, I’m finally starting to feel at home here. Of course, it’s not the real deal yet, far from it, but it’s definitely a good start, and gradually, with God’s help, amateur racism will morph into professional racism and our acclimatization process here will be complete.

I was really afraid of losing the … [more]

Some special kind of stupid

 

 

‘Scary’ final days

 

Dear editor:

I am convinced that Barack Hussein Obama’s goal was to change America from Christian to (I won’t say what).

I heard years ago that “things” come into a country slowly, much of it in schools, to take over.

What is going on in his last days is “scary.”

I don’t know the history of our past presidents, we have never had one, that I know of, who would even think of doing … [more]

Another odd element to our western outrage

It was bizarre to watch Samantha Power at the UN conveniently forget to mention all the massacres done in America’s name

By Robert Fisk, Thursday 15 December 2016 10:00 BST

 

So there was Samantha Power doing her “shame” bit in the UN. “Is there no act of barbarism against civilians, no execution of a child that gets under your skin, that just creeps you out a little bit?”, America’s ambassador to the UN asked the Russians and Syrians and … [more]

Cassandra

The Observer’s weekly column in the November 24 2016 CE edition of the Arkansas Times

 

The Observer’s grandfather on our mother’s side was a crackerjack fella. Grew up in the sandy hills north of Conway. County boy, through and through. During hog-killing time in December 1941, the story in our family goes, when word of Pearl Harbor reached his little community, he and his friends loaded into his T-model truck and made the rough journey to the first speck … [more]
