America ~ you did it!


american-flag-2a

Once again, I can respect and admire America. Celebrate and enjoy. The world community celebrates with you.

The challenges ahead will be immense. Obama inherits the inept and grossly immoral failures of George Bush and it won’t be easy but there’s every reason to believe that Obama will remain true to his pledges and that he will fight against the neocon lobbyists and the corrupt special interest elitists that have influenced American policy so much for the past eight years and have come to cause so much grief in America and crucially the world.

Well done America and congratulations! As Obama said in his victory speech . . . this is your moment. This is your time.

  3. Hi Ders.

    The questions regarding Obama’s birth certificate are not a problem. The state already declared it to be genuine. It’s all just the desperate acts of bigots.

  5. Hi EarthPal, There’s a huge division right now. I am very glad Obama won, but America needs healing.

  6. Ders, yes, I guess things will start to show, good or bad, soon enough. I liked Ralph Nader but I have much hope and faith in Obama.

    Hi Helen, yes and America now has what I believe (and most of the world believes) to be a great new leader to guide the healing.

  9. Hi Jose, sorry about the avatar. You do look angry. Lol. I don’t think I can control which face appears.

    I hear what you are saying. I too have a niggle or two that Obama will soon become corrupted by the corporate lobbyists and the neocons etc. but imo, the American people have chosen the best man out of the available candidates. He does show great potential. We can only wait and see.

  11. Oh dear, 8 years of the Bush buffoon really has made you lot cynical! Politics is politics; they all look to promise everyone everything to get into office but, I think the guy is genuine, intelligent, talented and determined.

    Don’t expect miracles but do expect a slightly calmer America which will be good for us all.

    Obama gives his first news conference today. Watch it. 🙂

  12. Matt, the indices I see at this stage – one of them the appointment of the Chief of the White House Staff – do not seem to be encouraging.

  13. What’s you beef with the Chief of the White House Staff?

  14. His deep connections with the Zionist State of Israel. If you look up his biography you may reach my same conclusion. It doesn’t seem any President of the US will ever shake Zionists off their shoulders.

    And I also have my suspicions about the Neo-Cons.

    Reply

  15. Well Jose does have a fair point. The appointment of Rahm Emanuel makes me a tad uncomfortable as does Obama’s pro-Israeli rhetoric. That said, perhaps he’s been overcompensating because of the intense pressure he found himself under when he showed sympathy for the Palestinians one time. Farcical I know but that’s politics . . . and that’s the might of the Jewish lobby. Maybe his views on Israel/Palestine are more moderate than his rhetoric.

    Ultimately though, the US/Israeli bond is seemingly unbreakable. I suspect wealthy Jewish lobbyists have a lot to do with it.

    Reply

  16. He’s Jewish. So what! He does not have the power to decide American policy. Congress and the Senate do. He doesn’t have the power to stop President Obama pursuing Middle East peace initiatives. But look, Obama will be concentrating on domestic policy anyway.

    No one has resolved the Jewish/Palestinian question and I fear no-one will except via all out war. Don’t forget women were introduced to the delights of working and the independence that gave them, because of their work during WWII. Yes, WWII did more to advance female emancipation than burning a few bras ever did!

    No one knew what to do with the Jewish refugees after WWII. They didn’t want to go back to those countries (or stay in them) where their relatives had been slaughtered by the Nazis. They were being moved backwards and forth in ships.

    The Arabs had long been living in Palestine. The Jews had nothing to lose and took on the British and local Arabs. They won and the US caved into their demand for a state. The Americans should never had done this but remember this is all in the context of the months after WWII.

    You can blame Germany for creating Israel. But it’s there now. So what do you all want? The Jews kicked out or, … a two state solution? I go for the later. Having Emanuel as Chief of Staff in the US doesn’t stop this from happening.

    Reply

  17. Matt, as the White house chief of staff, Emanuel will have potloads of influence. He will be a senior aide to the President.

    I agree with a two state solution too. I would never suggest kicking the Jewish people out now. They’ve suffered immensely and they need a homeland. But so too do the Palestinians and they’ve suffered greatly under the Israeli government. And with respect, I think it’s naive to believe the Jewish lobby can’t influence policy in Washington, particularly on Middle East affairs. The problem with Rahm Emanuel is that he is well known for being too one-sided towards Israel. That is not going to help the conflict, not by any stretch of the imagination.

    That said, I accept that I might be jumping to conclusions and we will have to wait and see. My biggest fear is that Obama will turn out to be another Tony Blair. The euphoria that the country felt when his party won the general election in 1997 soon blew out when he turned into a right-wing numptie.

    The same euphoria can be felt with Obama. I hope he can remain true to his values better than Blair did.

    Anti-Semitism is nothing but the antagonistic attitude produced in the non-Jew by the Jewish group.
    The Jewish group has thrived on oppression and on the antagonism it has forever met in the world…
    the root cause is their use of enemies they create in order to keep solidarity…
    — Albert Einstein, quoted in Collier’s Magazine, November 26, 1938

    Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that . . . I want to tell you something very clear: Don’t worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it. – Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, October 3, 2001, to Shimon Peres, as reported on Kol Yisrael radio.

    “I’ve never seen a President — I don’t care who he is — stand up to the Jews. They always get what they want. If the American people understood what a grip these people have got on our government, they would rise up in arms.”— Admiral Thomas Moorer, Chairman, U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, 1970-74

    “The Jewish people as a whole will be its own Messiah. It will attain world domination by the dissolution of other races…and by the establishment of a world republic in which everywhere the Jews will exercise the privilege of citizenship. In this New World Order the Children of Israel…will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition…” –Karl Marx in a letter to Baruch Levy, quoted in Review de Paris, June 1, 1928, p. 574

    “When the National Socialists and their friends cry or whisper that this [the war] is brought about by Jews, they are perfectly right.” –The Jewish magazine Sentinal (Chicago), 8 Oct 1940

    I’m not making a point, its the “extremists”.

  25. Well, although I have no time for holocaust denialist theories, I do get weary of people crying anti-semitism at every criticism of the Israeli government. I would never condone throwing missiles at Israeli civilians but I would also never deny that Israel has blood on her hands too, and if the US would acknowledge this instead of pandering to the Jewish lobby, there might not be so much bitter frustration and desperate actions by the Pals.

  26. Perhaps it would be a good idea tallying the dead produced by Israel among the Palestinian population and how many Palestinians there exist in Israeli prisons. And compare that tally with the Israelis who have died since the declaration of the State of Israel.

    Let alone the Palestinian refugees.

    The State of Israel was declared thanks to the good auspices of Lord Rothschild who demanded from the British Crown the debts owed to him for the last wars to be paid by the creation of that State. There are publications on this.

    Orthodox Jews are known to be decidedly against the State of Israel, as its constitution does not coincide with what their scriptures state. This is also well known.

    And as far as I know what Ders has said above also coincide with the information gathered about what happened in several revolutions where Jews have been involved. It is also said that the founder of the Stalinist KGB is attributed to a Jew.

    I hold nothing against the Jews in general, to me they are as respectable as anybody else. But respect must be mutual between peoples, races, religions, sexes, etc, etc.

    There are two distinct groups of Jews in the world and they come from two different areas of the world — the SEPHARDIC Jews from the Middle East and North Africa, and the ASHKENAZI Jews come from Eastern Europe.
    The SEPHARDIC is the oldest group and it is they, if any, who are Jews described in the Bible. They are blood relatives to the Arabs — the only difference between them is religion.
    The ASHKENAZI Jews, who now comprise 90% of the Jews in the world, had a rather strange beginning. According to historians, many of them Jewish, the Ashkenazi Jews came into existence about 1200 years ago. It happened this way:
    At the eastern edge of Europe, there lived a tribe of people known as the Khazars. About the year 740 A.D., the Khazar king and his court decided they should adopt a religion for their people. So, representatives of the three major religions, Christianity, Islam and Judaism, were invited to present their religious doctrines. The Khazars chose Judaism, but it wasn’t for religious reasons. If the Khazars had chosen Islam, they would have angered the strong Christian world. If they had chosen Christianity, they would have angered the strong Islamic world. So, they played it safe — they chose Judaism. It wasn’t for religious reasons the Khazars chose Judaism; it was for political reasons.
    Sometime during the 13th (10th-11th) century, the Khazars were driven from their land and they migrated westward with most of them settling in Poland and Russia. These Khazars are now known as Ashkenazi Jews. Because these Khazar (Ashkenazi) Jews merely chose Judaism, they are not really Jews — AT LEAST NOT BLOOD JEWS.
    Throughout their history, these Polish and Russian Ashkenazi Jews practiced communism/socialism and worked to have their ideas implemented in these countries. By the late 1800’s significant numbers of these communist/socialist Jews were found in Germany, the Balkans, and eventually all over Europe.
    Because of their interference in the social and governmental affairs of Russia, they became the target of persecution by the Czars. Because of this, migration of these communist/socialist oriented Jews began. Some went to Palestine; some went to Central and South America; and a large number of them came to the U.S.

    POLITICAL ZIONISM IS BORN

    In l897, the First Zionist Congress was held in Basel, Switzerland. At this Congress, it was decided to work toward the establishment of a Jewish state and a search for land on which to build this Jewish state began.
    Great Britain offered the Zionist land in Africa. This the Zionists rejected — THEY WANTED PALESTINE!
    At the time, Palestine was inhabited by a half a million Palestinian Arabs and a few Palestinian Jews who are blood related and who had lived together in peace for centuries.
    With Palestine as their choice for a homeland, European Ashkenazi Jews began migrating to Palestine,not their home IMO. How this will end? Again, time will tell.
