Since 2000, fewer than 20 Israelis have been killed by Hamas’ primitive rockets – and only one in the last 12 months. By contrast, 3,000 Palestinians have died, and 300 of them perished in the last few days.
Israel’s enabler is the USA, which provides American gunships, missiles, and bombs. Israel kills with impunity because the US vetoes near-unanimous UN rebukes.
Dispensationalism’s blind faith that Israel’s barbarous government is the Israel of prophecy demands re-evaluation. For the pogroms this outfit carries out make it more resemble the Third Reich than the children of Abraham.
And the USA—with the backing of the Christian conservative set—once again has blood on its hands.

Minneapolis and St Paul police are apparently on a rampage. Many houses and a theater were raided yesterday and today in advance of the Republican National Convention. Most of these appear to be places where independent journalists were housed. Many, including a lawyer representing them, handcuffed, some made to lie on the ground, their property searched, and then the police left – taking nothing, arresting no one.
One of my own heroes, Amy Goodman of DemocracyNow! was arrested today for “Conspiracy to Riot.” The arrest is documented in the video. It is both sad and outrageous.
More on this tomorrow.

Huffpo’s Michael Gene Sullivan has spun the funniest satire I’ve seen in a long time. It’s a classic political humor piece at a moment in history that has us tearing out our hair in frustration at the bizarre nonsense that’s passed off with a straight face (eg., Bill Clinton claims the media have covered up the real chances Hillary has of winning).
Go check it out – save it for your grandkids. Here’s just a tiny bit:
In a surprising move, which some are calling a deathblow to his candidacy, the Ku Klux Klan today decided to not endorse Senator Barack Obama in his bid for the Presidency of the United States. […]
At his armed camp outside of Shepherdstown, West Virginia, Imperial Grand Wizard Gomer Bath explained […] “for myself it really came down to health care.” […]
From his National Headquarters/Mother’s Knitting Room in Kudzu, Alabama, Intergalactic Majestic Dragon, and two-time winner of the “Hit a Black Man with a Stick When He’s Not Looking and Run Away” Championship, Chester Podgorney agrees. “Obama’s rhetoric and speeches of Hope and Understanding have not won the hearts and minds of my vast Army of Fearless Race Warriors.” […]
“Senator Obama’s representation of armed, unemployed fanatically religious small town racists as bitter is exactly the sort of out of touch comment we’ve come to expect from his kind. Of politician.” […]
Noting her strength with the broad swaths of people who have no intention of actually voting for her, Senator Clinton also feels Obama’s weakness with people who hate both of them with a passion should give unpledged superdelegates pause. […]
Ah, what delight. Sink into my mind, O sensible Satire! Remind me again: foolishness looks like foolishness because it’s foolishness.
