Israel and the United Nations

As of today, Palestine is now recognized a “non-member observer state” in the United Nations.  The Israelis as well as the Americans have said, it won’t solve anything.  Well, I am not so sure.  It may not solve anything by itself, but it does show progress for the Palestinians.  That is very important. It shows […]

The Fighting in the Middle East

For the time being, a war in the Middle East has been averted.  A new agreement was signed.  Apparently, Hamas has agreed to not fire missiles at Israel and Israel will relax the embargo against Gaza.  We’ll see how long that lasts. If you so desire, you can be a Christian or a Muslim and […]

Nightmares

I felt sure that Mitt Romney would win. Everything that I read pointed to an outcome just the opposite, but I am an extreme pessimist. I really didn’t believe that Obama would win until, well, he won.  Now, realistically, the polls, particularly Nate Silver’s in the New York Times did predict an Obama victory with […]
