TWO FOOLS THAT RULE THE WORLD

“The heart of the fool is in his mouth, but the mouth of a wise man is in his heart. The tongue of the wise makes knowledge appealing, but the mouth of a fool belches out foolishness. ….”

The Loquacious fool at the White House

“The heart of the fool is in his mouth, but the mouth of a wise man is in his heart. The tongue of the wise makes knowledge appealing, but the mouth of a fool belches out foolishness. ….”
 
On Thursday, President Trump questioned why the US would want to have immigrants from Haiti and African nations, suggesting instead more immigrants should come from Norway, whose prime minister he had met on a day earlier.
 
Trump reportedly said: “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” The White House did not deny the account, instead highlighting Trump’s hardline immigration stance.
 
Well, who would say it better? The mouth of a fool belches out foolishness.” This is exactly describing Donald Trump.
 
 I surely don’t know if King Solomon had Donald Trump in mind when he uttered these words of infinite wisdom. But I am completely sure that each of these golden words of wisdom  applies rather squarely to the idiot  of Washington or, probably more correctly, the fool of the White House, the very man who has brought indignity, dishonor and disrepute to the office he holds.
 
Sometimes, the dignity of the office gives honor to a mediocre officer, enabling him or her to give some of the best they could offer. History is rife with examples to that effect.
 
Sometimes, it is the officer that gives the office the dignity and honor by way of displaying lofty characters like love, grace and wisdom.
 
In Trump’s case, however, it is obvious that the officer is bringing dishonor and disgrace to the office., It is not only that he is less, much less, than mediocre.  His insidiousness leaves no possibility for rehabilitation.  How could you rehabilitate a fool who insists he is a genius?
 
Trump has repeatedly proved himself to be a loquacious, abusive idiot who is also thoroughly odious, mean-spirited and arrogant. The scatological language he used in reference to black people is not only an insult to the office (the President of the United States of America), but also to the entire American people, especially those who elected him to lead their country.
 
The use of this contemptible language to put down hundreds of millions of people spells racism, hatred, incivility and intolerance. After all, these people, like all of us, never chose to be who they are, nor did they choose the countries where they were born. You claim you are a genius! How come you can’t comprehend this most axiomatic fact of life in this world?
 
The Nazis did agree with you in case you don’t know. They called the people you now call “shithole ” untermenschen, the inferior masses of the east! You see you and the Nazis have much in common. Halleluiah!
 
And perhaps you would try to bring Benyamin Netanyahu, Nafali Bennett and Avigdor Lieberman along with you. They, too, would fit in perfectly.
 
Indeed, just as you want to keep “Shithole” people out of the US, Netanyahue, Benette and Lieberman,  presumably your ultimate role models,  want  to expel, sorry transfer,  millions of Palestinians from Palestine\Israel because they are not Kosher! Because they are not bona fide members the holy tribe! Because they are goyem! Because they are children of a lesser God
 
You see, it’s the same racism, same sickness! Same madness.  You call Africans shithole people  just as Netanyahu, et al, want to expel Palestinians from their ancestral homeland  or  force them to accept apartheid so that he could realize his sick mantra,  a pure Jewish state….just as Hitler wanted to realize his mantra,   a pure Aryan state,  “undefiled” by Jews, non-Aryans and other inferiors! You see! It is the same thinking, same ideology, same words, same arguments, and same goals!
 
Mr. Trump: You are a real malignant cancer upon the conscience of your people just as Netanyahu and ilk are a real cancer upon the conscience of Judaism and its true adherents who value humanity, justice and peace.
 
So, are you, too, trying to realize your mantra? I am afraid; actually I am sure, you will fail.

Is India’s Modi rewarding Israel’s Netanyahu for his slow-motion holocaust against the Palestinians?

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, received a cordial welcome upon their arrival in New Delhi Sunday.
 
 Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to welcome them in person, even though the foreign minister is normally the one greeting dignitaries to the country.
 
India has been widely lauded  for voting at the United Nations last month n favor of a  UNGA resolution considering President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as  capital of the apartheid state of Israel as null and void. That is what all people of moral conscience had expected India to do. And, thankfully, India didn’t betray them.
 
Now, however, India is giving a red-carpet welcome to a repugnant symbol of fascism and racism that shamelessly enjoys watching his trigger-happy soldiers showering school children and peaceful protesters with bullets.
 
I do realize that nation-states have political and economic interests that must be promoted and maintained.  But, India, the de facto leader of non-allied nations,   has moral principles that should be maintained as well, even at the risk of losing some economic and other benefits.
 
Netanyahu is seeking to sell India Israeli weapons and military technology. However, Indian leaders, especially those still valuing human rights and dignity ought to understand that every dollar paid to Israel means more Palestinian blood will be spilled, more Palestinian homes demolished, and more Palestinian land stolen by Israel. India,   a country of a thousand million people, should never allow its basic moral stance against racism and apartheid to compromise by a cold-blooded criminal who carries on his hands the blood of thousands, of children and other innocent people. We have their names and pictures, so let no one assume me I am making a hyperbole.
 
True,  Modi is no Mahatma Gandhi, or Jawaharlal  Nehru or even Indira Gandhi, who would internalize and act upon a moral appeal. However, India is not Modi and Modi is not India. This is why the  ultimate target of my appeal is by no means the current Prime Minister of India, who is very much part of the problem than part of the solution, but  the collective conscience of all Indians, irrespective of their religions and sects.
 
Netanyahu is the Prime Minister of an insidious apartheid regime that torments, persecutes and discriminates against millions of people because of their different ethnicity and religion.  Don’t let him defile your country’s moral integrity.

    ‘The use of this contemptible language to put down hundreds of millions of people spells racism, hatred, incivility and intolerance. ‘

    This is just the very nonsense that makes a joke of all the ‘Holier than thou’ snowflakes.
    If I say that Toyotas are Cr*p cars, it does not say anything about either the drivers or the people who make them. To make that into a personal insult is both dishonest and disgusting. Khalid is doing a disservice to the bible and the cause of peace.
    Is Khalid claiming that there are no S*hole countries? He should try visiting them. Natural disasters and lack of funds can cause devastation and disease. Gaza has beautiful people but to claim that it is beautiful is ridiculous. It has been made into a S*hole and yet people are forced to live in it.
    This kind of lying, deliberate conflation, causes normal people to reject all spokesmen for peace and goodness.
    ‘I surely don’t know if King Solomon had Donald Trump in mind when he uttered these words of infinite wisdom.’ then you are either an idiot or a liar.

    There are many things about Trump that I don’t like, but to call him a racist is stupid and dishonest.
    Shame on Desertpeace for prnting this nonsense.

    TRUMP is racist, ignoramus and fool. It is true that certain governments could do much to alleviate poverty and misery. But it is true that Trump is propping up virulent despots and tyrants ruling these countries with billions of dollars …. against their people’s will. This makes Trump a proactive partner in state-sponsored terrorism against hundreds of people struggling for freedom and dignity.

    Moreover, Trump is shamelessly embracing apartheid in Palestine by encouraging Israel’s Nazi-like policies against the native Palestinjians like settlement-aggrandiserment. This is what the Nazi authorities called “Lebensraum” When people, including Trump, think, behave and act like the Nazis thought, behaved and acted, they become Nazis.

    Once again, that may be your opinion and you are entitled to it, however, if you make claims without any evidence then you are merely demonstrating your ignorance and bias.
    Nobody has ever shown that Trump is a racist. Not a single instance, and yet thousands of accusations repeated as nauseam.
    ‘Nazi propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels was the master of the “big lie” tactic in which a lie, no matter how outrageous, is repeated often enough that it will eventually be accepted as truth.’

    ‘He earned an economics degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.’ Hardly an ignoramus, the fact that you disagree with his ideas does not make them ignorance.
    John Stuart Mills
    “It is better to be a human dissatisfied than a pig satisfied; better to be Socrates dissatisfied than a fool satisfied. And if the fool, or the pig, are of a different opinion, it is because they only know their own side of the question. The other party to the comparison knows both sides.”
    Which NEW despot is Trump ‘propping up’? or is he trying to turn 200 years of policy and 10 million government workers around to a new path?
    ‘Against their people will’ really, which ones are those? You are being silly.
    ‘proactive partner in state-sponsored terrorism against hundreds of people struggling for freedom and dignity.’ which ones again? Your freedom fighter is someone’s terrorist.
    Nobody likes Erdogan, but is the YKK a freedom movement or a terrorist movement? Is Gulen a hero or a traitor.? What about Chelsea Manning?
    Encouraging Israel (to make changes and negotiate) makes one a ‘Nazi’!
    It is articles and comments such as these that makes thinking, rational people wonder who and what they are supporting. I am vehemently and ardently against Zionism and Israel, but when that puts me on the side of jingoistic, ranting incoherent buffoons then I am embarrassed to declare my support. Ahed and Rachel showed how to win, BDS show how to win, fair minded and principled people all over the world want leaders and speakers who can articulate their thoughts, not the antithesis who stamp their feet and shout the equivalent of ‘USA, USA, USA, USA.’
    I would rather stand and march in silence than spout the nonsense of this and similar articles.
