Admittedly, “Liberate Wall Street” doesn’t have the right ring and sounds incongruously sympathetic to those responsible for the banking fiasco, yet it would be to call attention to the real occupation, because the acceleration of zionist control of the U.S. that came with the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 neatly coincides with the beginnings of the banking crisis.
"The current emphasis on combatting terrorism with military power is certain to continue, with much of the action carried out by personnel who operate below the radar. Even if Obama should withdraw all but a few thousand troops from Iraq by December, a strong U.S. military presence will remain....An Arab diplomat said recently of America's weakening grip in the Middle East, "The people in the region say, 'Why should we listen?'" If Obama hopes to play a positive role in the future of the Middle East, he will have to come up with a plausible answer."
"The American Jewish community would serve Israel's interests far better by taking a conciliatory pro-peace position instead of the stance represented by AIPAC, Ben-Ami writes. He calls for a strong American Jewish voice for active U.S. intervention in the Middle East that will bring about the end of occupation and the establishment of a Palestinian state....More and more Jewish voices are being heard in criticism of the direction in which Israel is now moving. New York Times columnist Roger Cohen wrote on Aug. 21 that "Jews, with their history, cannot become the systematic oppressors of another people. They must be vociferous in their insistence that continued colonization of Palestinians in the West Bank will increase Israel's isolation and ultimately its vulnerability."
"This is true that preaching with soft words and demonstrating good attitude were very important factors in the propagation of Islam but they were not the only means. The Prophet and his followers offered great sacrifices for Islam and they had to face a number of battles with the enemies of Islam who were bent upon creating every hurdle in the way of Islam. Such information is disseminated either out of sheer ignorance or it is done with a bad intention."
"It's not because Afghans are fighting back. That's not new. It's not because the financial cost is stratospheric. That's not new, and it funds important presidential campaign "contributors." It's not because the Pentagon and NATO no longer want a permanent presence and weapons bases in Afghanistan, not to mention a pipeline. All of that, as far as we know, hasn't changed or been abandoned. What has changed is that people in the United States, and in Europe as well, are in the streets, the squares, and the parks. On a daily basis marches through DC streets are shouting "How do you fix the deficit? End the wars, tax the rich!" The media coverage has changed. If the polling on support for the Afghanistan war continues its current downward trend, before long this war will be as unpopular as Congress. But it is the passion and the action that has changed in this moment, not the polling."
