From The USA

***** The Hill: Trump: GOP rivals want to ‘start World War III over Syria’ By Meghashyam Mali         {The majority of current presidential candidates are not idiots. They are immoral, corrupt and remorseless in beguiling the innocent naïve ill-informed public. But once any one of them is in office he/she has no recourse except to play the establishment’s game which is the poker game of the few special interests groups}


FORBES: U.S. Should Stop Subsidizing Bad Israeli Economic And Occupation Policies by Doug Bandow. “America is practically bankrupt yet Israel remains a multi-billion dollar dependent. The U.S. can’t afford to continue subsidizing well-off nations, no matter how friendly. And Israel, which spends heavily both to expand state regulation and occupy Palestinian lands, doesn’t need American support,” writes Doug Bandow.

YESH DIN: From Occupation to Annexation. The Silent Adoption of the Levy Report on Retroactive Authorization of Illegal Construction in the West Bank.

COMMENTARIES

Al-Monitor: How to reverse engineer Israeli-Palestinian peace by Akiva Eldar. “With Israelis and Palestinians dubious of the ‘peace process,’ a new approach is needed to restore some hope in resolving their conflict,” writes Akiva Eldar.             {The United States government screwed up the peace process through its false promises to solve the Palestinian problem with Israel.

“Practical Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Impasse”

It follows the Admonitions of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson:
“Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people” – John Adams – Second US President
