"While Palestinian leaders keep evoking the importance of Jerusalem in the national struggle, it is very likely that even if an agreement is found at political level, Palestinians will discover that the city they have been declaring their capital is an empty shell run by thugs and criminals."
"No one should ever be surprised when innocent children die in war zones. In fact, every time a Drone fires a weapon, or a bomb is dropped from a plane, it is probable that innocent civilians are killed....Because too many US voters lack the critical thinking skills necessary to understand how the world works. We have a dysfunctional political system, a culture that celebrates stupidity and violence, and an inferior educational system. Of course there are exceptions. Some teachers are smart, dedicated, and supportive of their students. There are not enough of them. Some people choose C-Span Book TV over the reality shows.

Uninformed voting is epidemic and has disastrous consequences."
