Actual evidence, on the other hand, shows that less than 2 percent of terrorist attacks from 2009 to 2013 in the E.U. were religiously motivated. In 2013, just one percent of the 152 terrorist attacks were religious in nature; in 2012, less than 3 percent of the 219 terrorist attacks were inspired by religion

***** The essence of unviolent action is patience, I have seen it said by sages recently. Part of me hates that. Patience while children are being tortured and slaughtered? But it occurs to me there is a deep correctness understood properly. The patience of the farmer. The patience of the horticulturist. All creation including human beings and human groups are organic. Constructive change can only be within the organic framework. Yet it must be remembered that it is appropriate to cut out cancer and kill it.

***** well done! 10 Falsehoods That Netanyahu Told During His Appearance At CAP

Medical update, onset of blindness: I think that my specialist today.......

Medical update, onset of blindness: I think that my specialist today...

... is less concerned than the last week specialist as to macular degeneration. Yet, she, today, can not yet explain why my eyesight has degenerated so rapidly in only a month. The cataract in my left eye is large enough to explain some of it but it does not neatly explain all of it. Yet, we have tentatively scheduled cataract surgery for mid December. But before firming that up she wants me evaluated by a retinal specialist. That is scheduled for the last day in November now.

It is unlikely, based on review of today's specialist, the most senior that I have yet seen I believe, it is unlikely that this is a situation that can not be arrested. The specialist last week seemed quite concerned about macular degeneration. Depending upon the type that is something that can accelerate with little ability to stop it. Today's specialist suggests that it is not as advanced as I was understanding.

But again, the rate of deterioration is something that today's specialist cannot explain based on what she is seeing so far. So November 30th hopefully we will learn more.

***** Covertly or overtly they were neglect to not band together to stand up for each other's rights to whatever degree was necessary. This is the problem with Palestine and we Americans. Until it is way too late we will not face the fact that there is only one set of human rights, the human rights that apply to all of us and therefore are defended by all of us. We are allowing those human rights in the final stages of destruction in Palestine. When we finally look up the human rights of us all will be nothing but feces at our feet. Or rather, choking our throats.

The Center for American Progress (CAP) has come under heavy fire for its decision to host Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during his visit to Washington, DC this week.

***** I'm moved to tears. Are you hungry, the young African American city worker woman ask me? Her face looked familiar, but just as though I must have glanced and seen her face sometime in the city area. Maybe today. Are you hungry, she asked, at about 2:30 or 3 o'clock this afternoon? She handed me a bag from Panera Bread as my face glowed in appreciation at the kindness of her offer. I took her hand and in reverence kissed the back of it. I'll guess she knew that I have been here in the cold and now drizzle since daybreak, in front of Center for American Progress where Netanyahu will speak tomorrow. This my pitiful, near hopeless attempt, to help encourage, help stiffen the spine of one or two souls in this building.

Rather, they see government as the vehicle for big corporations and Wall Street to exert their power in ways that hurt the little guy.

And when there is no breaking point, you do not have a moral compass.

Adopting Department of State’s definition of anti-Semitism would be irresponsible

***** Obama is a catastrophic moral failure if this remains true. He is not accountable for improving the situation. He is fully accountable for exhibiting the moral leadership of putting his life, the presidency, and the country in the way of this genocide. If he fails in that he has totally completely and utterly failed as a human being, has a president, as the leader of America. Genocide is humanity's ultimate red line and he is continuing to allow us to go over that line. Unopposed. Intolerable. Unforgivable if this is what transpires. I will not write him off until possibly the last day of his presidency. But if he allows this to stand he is among the greatest traitors to America and humanity in all history. This is our last chance and he is blowing it.

I am quite distressed that I lose one or two days per week to bed rest finding that my heart mind spirit and body are crushed by my dawn to bedtime digestion and republication of the news from Palestine out in public Washington DC venues. Although I have a comfortable seat whether I'm in front of the Washington Post, New York Times, Center for American Progress... etc, apparently I am carrying severe emotional stress and weight that I'm not aware of. I am hoping that by introducing several periods of meditation per day I can reduce the time required for bed rest. If I had my way I would require no sleep at all and simply spend every second of my life fighting to free Palestine. I am not complaining. Depending upon what I learn on Tuesday I may have something to complain about. If it is the wet kind of macular degeneration robbing my eyesight then I might not have much eyesight at all for very long.
