The Other Side of Hitler

Adolf Hitlerby Jacob G. Hornberger

Whenever the subject of Adolf Hitler arises, it usually begins and ends with the Holocaust and World War II. That’s unfortunate because Hitler had another side, one that is similar to that of liberals and conservatives in America.

Washington-Riyadh Subverting Arab Masses Revolt

morsiEgypt’s Islamist President Removes Top Military Leaders

"The Brothers are officially in power," declared the independent newspaper al-Watan, while the independent al-Masri al-Yom said, "Mursi grabs all the powers."

In a tug of war between Egypt’s powerful and entrenched but secular military establishment and its largest political formation, the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), which began after the elimination of president Hosni Mubarak’s 30 years dictatorial rule by the masses’ revolt, in the latest counter move, MB’s Egyptian president, Mohamed Morsi removed Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, head of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (Scaf) and the chief of staff, Gen Sami Anan. As part of sweeping decisions, Morsi appointed a senior judge Mahmoud Mekki as his vice-president and cancelled a critical supplemental constitutional declaration curbing presidential powers issued by the Scaf, days before Morsi was declared elected after June elections. Tantawi and Sami have been appointed advisers to the president. Tantawiis replacement headed the military intelligence, Abdel-Fatah el-Sissi – one of the generals who defended the use of "virginity tests" against female protesters in March 2011. All new military appointments are from members of Scaf.

Is he dead they ask, or perhaps critically ill, has he run away, finally overwhelmed by guilt and shame at the way he and his ministerial cronies have treated the people of Ethiopia, since they took power from the communist Derg twenty one years ago. Or is he recovering from illness peacefully on some isolated retreat.

Oz ABC Revision

AshokaABC claims Ashoka “lost” for millennia

Mainstream media lying and censorship are major causes of the current global economic and climate crises. The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (the ABC, Australia’s equivalent of the UK BBC) has, like the BBC, built up an appalling record of Anglo-centric censorship and mal-reportage by omission and commission. However in recent weeks it has exceeded itself in terms of hubris and insistence on publishing the absurdly incorrect. Ashoka is one of India’s most famous rulers but the ABC Late Night Live (LNL) radio program insists that he has been “lost” to the world for 2,000 years and has deleted 6 successive posts on its websites attempting to correct this absurdly incorrect assertion.

Bloody Spring

bashar-al-assadOn a flight to London in 1961, I had a unique experience.

On the way, the plane made a stop in Athens and a group of Arabs joined us. That by itself was an experience. In those days, Israelis hardly ever met people from Arab countries.
