APPAF Newsletter 06-22-2017

June 22, 2017

Dear Friends
There is no real diplomatic or economic hope to solve the Palestinian-Israeli problem under the current Middle East Israeli-Arab circumstances. BUT President TRUMP expressed his intention to solve it against all obstacles. Let us hope that he can do it. HOWEVER, he will need tremendous American and Worldwide encouragement and support.
Several US administrations showed interest in solving the Palestinian-Israeli problem without success. Whether you like Trump or not, whether you support him or not, he is now the president of the United States of America. He is in the decision-maker seat.
Let us rally and unite the forces of “We the People all over the World” to encourage President TRUMP to translate our activism into a positive, peaceful constructive conclusion as the most logical equitable way: the American way
Please read and sign the petition. Ask your family members and friends to sign it. We may have a chance to succeed. This PETITION is not only for peace-loving Americans to sign but also for all peace-loving people from all over the world. Please circulate to family members and friends.

COMMENTARIES

[Editor’s Note: Political storm clouds gather over the Royal family as the never ending power struggle goes on with its ups and downs. This is not a battle so much over the actual running of the country. The “work averse” Saudis, who view all work as a slave’s occupation, are only focused on control over the top positions where they can loot more of the country’s wealth than other members of the Royal Family. A typical government employee will work an hour a day, leaving the real work to the imported slave working class. As VT has reported many times, and corporate media has never uttered a word, when Saudi “military pilots” can hire a Pakistani stand-in to be trained to fly their plane for them, for a fraction of the pay. When the figure head pilots come to the US to get “training” he heads to Las Vegas to enjoy the babes and booze while their stand ins go through the training. This information comes directly from the trainers.         {That is the corrupt Wahhabi version of pagan Islam. That is not Islam. It is UN-Islam unless you are happy with misuse and trampling of your intellect. It is pure corrupt paganism and there are a lot of naive uneducated people who believe them. If Muslims have brain they ought to understand what Ramadan and Pilgrimage to Mecca are about. Unfortunately they are basically illiterate. They don’t know the difference between language and concept}


VT: London: Finsbury Park Mosque Attack, Dividing the World on Religious Lines By GPD {The problem is that Muslims do not understand the Quran and the real Islam of Muhammad. They locked themselves in the very deep hole of Arabic language, and found it easier to remain ignorant of the scientific approach of the Quran. If they did they would earn the respect of a lot of people in the world. After all the Quran is meant to address people all over the whole world whether they speak Arabic or not. Because it addresses concepts. I muse when I read about a well-educated scholar who spent twenty years explaining the Arabic language of the Quran in Arabic. What a waste of talent!}


Paul Craig Roberts: Another Step Toward Devastating War Posted By pcr3         {Why can’t all peace-activists all over the world unite and form their own United Nations For Peace. Are they happy with the impotent activism and unyielding verbosity?}


SPUTNIK: Western Elites ‘Scapegoat Russia Amid Own Failures Before Their People’


Global Research: Dealing with the Realities of Nuclear Violence By Ray Acheson, Reaching Critical Will        {Let us not put ourselves, our children and grand children in harms way, now or in the future}

Serendipity: 9/11 Destroyed America By Paul Craig Roberts

A well-educated and informed public is best equipped to practice democracy and to hold its representatives responsible and accountable to answer and protect its needs.
This newsletter provides what is missing in the US mainstream media and what the American public needs to learn about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. We hope you never fail to make the connection between APPAF’s reported articles and the cause and effect of the Palestinian problem and the vicious Israeli occupation as its illegitimate heinous perpetrator
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
“Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” Thomas Jefferson

We also invite you to visit www.APPAF.org website, and send us your feedback.

Please don’t forget that Palestine is as much of an American problem as it is a Palestinian and an Israeli problem.
