Ramblings from the Desert…..
It’s been awhile since I last posted…. for this I apologise but certain personal affairs had to be attended to.
Since my last post, so much has changed in the world scene…..
First and foremost, the United States has a new President, one that hopefully will start the process of bringing that country to a place where it belongs…… political cartoons from assorted newspapers follow this post. I personally wish the new Commander in Chief the best of luck.
A week after the American election Israel held local Municipal ones. In Jerusalem, the guard changed from a Mayor who was ultra orthodox to one representing the secular population. Hopefully this will bring Jerusalem back to the 21st century.
In my next post I will attempt to bring you up to date with what is happening here. In the meantime, thanks for ala the messages of support that were sent to me during my absence.
The cartoons mentioned above…. all sent to me by my dearest cousin Chippy.

Political cartoons that appeared in newspapers on 11-5-08.

    You are a little late with the Obama paraphernalia.

    Some here who haven’t been on sabbatical all this time are already referring to Obama as just another president with a bunch of stupid white-guy ideas about what the problem is, and how to keep from fixing any of them…

    The bookies are currently laying ten to one odds against, Obama extradicting the U.S. from the Iraq quagmire.

    And Obama is, even before his inauguration, facing revolution if the bailouts and the government handouts don’t stop.

    Americans ten to one actually want the price of housing to fall. What’s wrong with that?

    The problem with America is America black or white.

    And while Obama ran on a platform of change, the only change I’ve noticed is that there is going to be a black rich white guy in the White House come January.

    Obama clawed his way to where he is right now, just exactly like every other stinking politician in Washington D.C.

    That is the net result of the Obama platform of change.

    And if you’re reading about having turned the corner in the economic crisis, you are just reading the same pack of lies we are reading here in the U.S.

    Sorry I can’t feel you excitement for Obama. He’s just the next sellout to occupy the White House. His sucking up to AIPAC was the first clue. He voted for the bailout(criminal). He’s not leaving the ME anytime soon. Look for major false flag either before or shortly after taking office. His pick for chief of staff, Rahm-a-dom-a-ding-dong speaks volumns. Zionism marches forward…unchallenged.

    I’m afraid I have to agree with robertsgt40 on this one. “Rahm-a-dom-a-ding-dong” – much more polite than I would put it, though.

    America’s economy may have a chance to recover in a more timely manner, some form of universal health care will be put into place, education will probably improve, but on a global scale particularly in regard to Israel, nothing changes. No wonder the Palestinian people are giving up on the hope that anyone gives a damn.

    He’s just another sock puppet for Wall Street and he’s choosing the same old same old that brought the country down to begin with over the last twenty-five years. And Rahm Emmanuel? GOOD GRIEF!

    I do not like politicians or the government. Both are complicit in crimes that make the Nazi’s look pale in comparison, and a new shiny black president is not the answer. I did not vote for the first time in my life, as it was the only form of resistance that sat well with my soul at the time. In America today we are faced with two very corrupt, very self-serving parties, who’s job it is to serve their foreign masters. Many American people are sheep, and if you are not one of them you should be realizing about now how you have been used in the game we call politics. Your country is being dismantled and sold to the highest bidder, right in front of you. Yet, you are surrounded by those who still wish to put faith in a system which neither serves or protects them or their families. Why is this happening? If you are one of my kind of people you know the answer, and are taking steps to prepare for the inevitable. If you are new to this truth, I suggest you open your eyes and realize that…

    “You assist an evil system most effectively by obeying its orders and decrees. An evil system never deserves such allegiance. Allegiances to it means partaking of the evil. A good person will resist an evil system with his or her whole soul” – Gandhi

    Now consider your politicans..Would even one of them be able to say they resist such evil that is transpiring today. They are all in it together, and like a big top show have the people of the world dazzled and looking the other way. I remember my oath to fight such injustice as do many others, and WE ARE ORGANIZING. A better world can be created by all of us, not the politicians, as it is their aim to continue the facade, and ours to open your eyes. Truth, never fears investigation, and we must work together -all races,religions,people to better our world. Only God, by his many names deserves your faith, stop worshiping things, and help yourselves as it may already be too late for some.

    Ralph Nader already denounced Obama for putting his self interests above his stated principles. Most people – and I too – hate Bush but one should acknowledge that he stuck to his views whatever wrong they where. Obama has not taken his functions yet but it seems he is going to be a dreams crusher because he doesn’t have the guts needed in such turbulent times to impose his views… whatever right they are.

    There might be a new deal to rebuild the world… but where is the giant leader who can carry it ?


    1. Israel is a denial of Justice

    If the HOLOCAUST was the biggest crime of the 1st half of the 20th Century, the UK-US backed CREATION OF ISRAEL ON STOLEN PALESTINIAN LAND was the biggest crime in the 2nd half of the 20th Century.

    When America was fighting Nazis or totalitarian states, it was on the side of justice and God make it triumphant and prosperous. But when America backs Palestinian land spoliation and supplies weapons to Israel to terrorize and oppress the Palestinian people, or when America shuts down Muslim charities around the world, leaving orphans and elders without resource, or when it promotes usury and sexual perversion, then America is definitely on the wrong side and God removes power and wealth from it.

    In the last century, at the very moment Britain was plotting to divide Palestine, God was tearing apart the British Empire. The United States might also be torn apart, unless Palestinians return to their stolen land and other Muslim countries recover their freedom.

    DIVINE WARNINGS have already been sent to America in the last seven years: 9/11, HURRICANE KATRINA, WILDFIRES IN CALIFORNIA & THE ECONOMIC MELTDOWN.

    2. One Sate Palestine = Peace & Prosperity

    The two states solution is not viable. The World MUST confront Zionism in order for PALESTINE to be again ONE STATE with equal rights to its citizens: MUSLIMS, JEWS AND CHRISTIANS.


    Muslim countries will finance the RECONSTRUCTION OF PALESTINE, IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN, ETC. The MEGA PROJECT FOR PEACE, equivalent to post World War II NEW DEAL, would provide TRILLIONS DOLLARS to the World Economy.

    US armies MUST leave all Muslim lands in order for the United States to live in peace and harmony with Muslims. This will bring development, jobs and an unprecedented prosperity to all the nations of the world.

    The MEGA PROJECT FOR PEACE must be implemented NOW before the World Economy reaches a point of no return.

    Voted for FISA, Patriot Act, against LIHEAP, the bailout, gun bans, mandatory ‘civic’ service, etc.. Will willingly attack Pakistan, still pushes the Osama Bin Laden hallucination. This is change? All the recycled leftist Clinton era criminals and that is change and ‘hope’? I can’t believe what I am reading. What in the hell is going on here? Anyone can see that this is the same old crap being masqueraded as new crap. The Obamatrons have the same look on their faces as when the great Fuhrer spoke from the podium. Anyone with half a critical mind should be shivering in their boots over this guy. Obama is puppet, nothing more.

    Mark my words, Obama will do nothing for the Palestinian cause. He is as much a servant to AIPAC as McCain is, seriously!

    Yes to all the above comments.(btw, Don, I still await your reply about your criticism of Jim Rodgers, and his alleged bad hygiene. Or his alleged nefarious financial dealings…swallow your whistle, bub?)

    But. I will still take a wait and see attitude before I judge a man not even inaugerated yet. Kinda goes with his being in charge before I accuse.

    No, I didn’t vote for him (I voted for McKinney, me and a handful of others) but I do like what I am hearing from his choice for heading Justice. Holden says we need to prosecute those that torture.

    THAT would be a grand start, as well as shutting dwon Guantanamo, and leaving Iraq.

    And if he throws in a 50% reduction in DOD procurements, and raises the damn taxes back to where they were in 2001 when the budget was balanced (with off-book shenanigans, I know, but still), that would bring a smile to ol’ farang’s mug.

    Yes, the choice of Rahm was a kick in the gut, a obvious repayment of receiving favorable press from the Zionist msm.

    But let’s at least wait until he takes office to judge.

    In the meantime, let’s petition him to choose the right directions.

    The election was positive: it shows that the nation could make a radical choice (in comparison to Bush), by electing a man of color as president, let’s use that willingness for change to keep pushing Obama in the right, progressive direction. And pushing, and pushing, and pushing.

    SHIT people, changing entrenched career politician’ mindss (criminals) to do the right things ain’t EASY work, ya know?
