The recent attack, at night, in international waters, by Israeli commandos on vessels carrying humanitarian aid to the totally oppressed inhabitants of Gaza has temporarily hit the headlines. Maybe when they send the next flotilla accompanied by warships of the Turkish fleet we shall have another interesting incident from the ‘we are always right’ Israelis, who have atomic weapons that the US is ready to go to war about…with other nations.
With the lies of political hacks filling the air, and the current meltdown of the banking system based entirely and only on greed and its yield, it may be a good idea to look at another example of a group that poses as intellectual, unbiased seekers of truth, who are actually merely craving for the popularity of their peers.
With the current decades old deadlock between the Palestinians and the Israelis in mind it may be a good moment to review a bit of recent history showing that it doesn’t pay to be honest about certain matters in America.
I saw the title quotation from the KJV John 8:32 on a poster in a Christian bookstore that I often frequented to see how the other half believed. It had a picture of a totally unhappy rag doll halfway through an old fashioned wringer. Underneath it were the added words…“but first it will make you miserable.” I bought the poster.
