    I will wager that not a one of those that walked out have never lived anywhere but the United States of America. If they would go to some of these countries and see for themselves how others are treated, especially non-Muslims, their attitudes would change.

    I would love to get a recording of your speech or to read a transcript.

    Colonel West, they attended in hopes that you, like many, would be intimidated from speaking about history and facts in the interest of not offending someone. What they didn’t know? Infantry leads the way.

    Keep up the good work! Truth!

  • Braveheart

    So…we have a few ignorant turds at DePaul who love the muslim brotherhood. They have the right to move to one of those flea-ridden sewers.

  • cmac18411

    The truth needs no defense….apparently the “young ‘uns”, as you said, couldn’t handle the truth and simply don’t want to hear it. They’re idea of the truth is what they are fed by the liberal news media and facts only “cloud” the issue.

  • hashimoto

    Your a hero Colonel West….

  • Michael Smith

    in my browser, IE, your ads on the right are covering the last word of every line of the article, making it very hard to read. I am glad you spoke the truth and sorry the university students could not handle it.

  • Carolyn VanZorge

    keep standing strong, col west

  • jabbermule

    Why didn’t the students stay and challenge your assertions in a Q&A after your presentation? If they had truly wanted intellectual discourse (as all universities purport to encourage), then honest public debate would have been the most effective and honorable way to establish any sort of proposition. Instead, they did something cowardly, passive aggressive, and, ironically, completely ineffective.

    • Boo Radley

      Great point. They can’t challenge his facts and they don’t want to look stupid trying.

      • jabbermule

        Yep…instead, they look far more stupid by not even trying.

    • daddyody

      They cannot argue with facts and truth – the only discourse they had was to retreat in protest!

  • Boo Radley

    What’s sad is you laid out the facts, backed them up, and they ignored it all so as to make a point by walking out. Now if we could just get them to keep walking to another country!

    • daddyody

      They’re not interested in facts because they go against the agenda they’ve bought into…

  • Paulapilot

    They aren’t being told about history; therefore, they stand behind the evil people.

    I agree with Elden. They have never been to other countries. I have talked to people who go on a two-week vacation trip to Poland, Czechoslovakia, etc. or Cuba and they come back to the states Socialist experts. :/

    While I highly respect Allen West and his opinions, in all fairness to average, non-terrorist Palestinians, one has to admit that they have not been treated fairly.

    Before the birth of the State of Israel, indigenous Palestinians and Jews lived side by side in relative harmony. It was only after the State of Israel began evicting Palestinians from land they had lived on and farmed for generation after generation that the troubles began.

    It’s one thing to build housing for indigenous Jews and quite another to keep evicting Palestinians only to build housing for Jews from the Bronx and other parts of the world who keep flooding into the country and upsetting the balance of power; as if the Palestinians had any say in Israel at all.

    Basically, the Israeli’s have treated the Palestinians much like we treated Native Americans as we kept driving them off of THEIR land to make way for more and more white Europeans.

    • Ebenezer

      Those Palestinians were not evicted, they left voluntarily after being warned by the Arabs of the bloodbath to come. They thought that after the Jews were exterminated or pushed into the sea that they could exercise their “right to return,” which they still clamor for.

      • eadtuff

        saying “they left voluntarily,” isn’t much different than holocaust denial, even if palestinians are a group of people you dislike

      • Ebenezer

        Palestinians are not a group that I dislike. How can I dislike a fictitious “race?”

      • eadtuff

        good work, dehumanizing people makes it easier to legitimize oppressing them. The same thing Nazis did to the Jews, you’re in good company!

      • Ebenezer


      • Paul Robinson

        MY, you DO like to rewrite history, don’t you. YES they left voluntarily, in hopes of returning to all the booty the Jews would leave behind. Their hatred for the Jews and their greed for their stuff is why they are in those camps today. And the biggest shortage in the Palestinian areas is parking outside their luxury malls. So apart from your racism and attempts at rewriting history, what other leftist trash are you capable of? Are you capable of actually thinking and researching for yourself?

      • eadtuff

        Nice job making stuff up, little fella. Hope that works out for you. Your hatred will most likely lead to an early death. Please get regular checkups, thanks to Obamacare you are able to do that. And your grandkids will call eventually, don’t worry.

      • freeaw

        I have friends who are Palestinian who fled the Sinai Peninsula during the the 1960’s. They left because the PLO were killing Christians, they were using the guise of the fight against the Israeli State to kill Palestinian Christians because even then they allowed only followers of Islam to survive.

      • eadtuff

        This is completely fictious. The palestinian resistance organizations of the 1960s were secular (look up George Habash, a notorious Christian PLO member.) In fact, Israel helped Hamas gain a foothold because they wanted to counter the influence of the PLO/Fatah. That worked out well

    • Ollie

    • jabbermule

      It’s real easy to sit in the United States of America in your ivory tower protected by the world’s most powerful military with a massive arsenal of nuclear bombs surrounded by the world’s two largest oceans and two friendly neighbors, and criticize a tiny country the size of New Jersey with no more than 18 million people fighting for its very survival surrounded by 400 million hostile neighbors who constantly vow to “drive (it) into the sea.” The comparison to what the U.S. did to Native Americans doesn’t even come close and is an insult to Indigenous peoples everywhere who were wiped out by true colonialism.

      • eadtuff

        Oh, give me a break. Israel is the most powerful country in the region and has nukes. That excuse doesn’t fly anymore. They’re just racists.

      • jabbermule

        Then go live there if you think it’s so safe. My hunch is you’ve never even traveled there, or else you wouldn’t make such an ignorant statement.

      • eadtuff

        I can’t emigrate to Israel because I’m not Jewish. A country that practices race-based ethnic cleansing is pretty much the definition of racist.

      • Ebenezer

        Why would you want to emigrate to Israel?
        Race based? What race? I have seen blond Jews from Europe, brown Jews from North Africa, and black Falasha Jews from Ethiopia. What you want is to make the Jews a minority so the Muslims can declare sharia law and exterminate the Jews.

      • http://www.norad.mil/ Dr_Falken

        Hey! We agree on something! So when will you protest Saudi Arabia for denying visas to Jews because they are Jewish? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/25/saudi-arabia-jerusalem-post-obama_n_5027062.html

        But wait — as I look at the actual facts here, it occurs to me that Israel does not have a race-based requirement to even visit Israel (unlike Saudi Arabia), and they even have some helpful tips for people who are not Jewish who may want to move to Israel: http://momentumisrael.com/non-jews-israel/

        Hmm… After about 2 minutes’ worth of research online, it appears that your first statement is completely bollocks, and your second statement, while true, doesn’t describe the country you intend it to.

        I stand in awe at the amount of fail wafting from that post — jolly good job, sir! :-)

      • Guest

        And, by the way, it’s clear you have no argument since you dragged out the “R” word so quickly. Try using your brain instead of retreating to that same old tiresome liberal fallback position.

      • Paul Robinson

        Funny thing – that they treat their Arab citizens so well, while the Jewes in Arab countries are persecuted. Your definition is racism is definitely NOT the one in the dictionary. I would suggest it is YOU who is racist. 400 million vs 18 million – now that sounds like even odds.. Billiuons is US oil money coming in every year vs a country that cannot export Sodastream products without them being boycotted. Sounds fair . . . to a racist.

      • eadtuff

        I think your diaper needs changed, Paul.

    • Mike Biliti

      “Before the birth of the State of Israel, indigenous Palestinians and Jews lived side by side in relative harmony.”??? Where did you hear that? No, Jews were treated as 2nd class dhimmi as long as they bowed to their Muslim oppressors. Secondly, Arabs are not indigenous to Palestine/Israel. From the time the Romans exiled the Jews until the 19th century there were never more than 270-thousand people in the land. Arabs began arriving in the land in the 7th century. There were also Turks, Kurds, Persians, Egyptians, Jews, Druze, Circassian, Roman Catholics, Greek Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, Samaritans, and I am sure I am leaving out other non-Arab groups. The overwhelming majority of Arabs in Israel/Palestinian Authority arrived during the Period of the Mandate while the British were supposed to be facilitating the “New Jewish Commonwealth” but instead cut off the Jewish return home while turning a blind eye to illegal Arab immigration from Syria, Egypt, Iraq, and other Arab countries.

      • abeleehane

        Armenians, Ethiopians, French (from Templar times).

    • Paul Robinson

      You ignore the FACT that much of Israel was BOUGHT as useless swamp/desert for high prices, by individuals – that although the Jews suffered at the hands of their neighbors, they DID make the desert blossom like a rose on land they individually owned. The great exodus from Palestine around 1948 was caused by the mizlim lies that Israel would kill all Arabs who stayed behind. In fact those who stayed behind are among the best treated Arabs in the world. The two-nation solution was Israel and Jordan. By muzlim theology, because they once occupied Israel, they own it forever.

      • Hamza Nadeem

        The amount of land that was BOUGHT was along the coast. Do your research. The UN partition plan gave Israel much more than the land the Jews Owned, and ever since they have continued to encroach on more land.

    • abeleehane

      Some here have responded to some of your claims. I will also remind you that when the State of Israel was born, Arab armies invaded and tried to evict, kill and otherwise eliminate Jews from the land. In a war and especially in one that took place over 65 years ago, people get displaced. A war is never a nice thing and you can’t get your stuff back when you lose after having initiated the belligerence. You then go on and add that Israel is still evicting Arabs, this is utterly false. You have no idea what you are talking about and I would say that you are another victim of the propaganda and anti-israel campaign waged by the likes of the NYT, The Guardian and other shameful publications.

      • eadtuff

        So what would you call demolishing homes to make room for Jewish-only settlements?

      • Ebenezer


      • abeleehane

        That would be terrible …but it only happened in the imagination of Jew-haters, and other made-up “media” online News .

    • http://www.norad.mil/ Dr_Falken

      There are no Palestinians. There are, however, Jordanians. And if you would spend 5 minutes researching how Jordanians treated the group of Jordanians you call Palestinians, you may get an appreciation for who the real aggressors are in the region.

      This, of course, assumes that you care about actual truth.

    This is most interesting.I did not know about the intolerance of Hadrian…fascinating.

He talks about the ‘myths ‘ that each participant clung to…none of which meshed with the truth.This was and still is part of this ‘hundred years war ‘ which is still being played out…but unfortunately the ‘myths ‘ have not been debunked or abandoned….which is precisely why you were rudely treated by a few bird brained students.The young people of America (and the government) have their own myth and itis leading the world once again into mortal combat with all the other myths. Unfortunately There is no pursuit of Truth today any more than in 1914..and so we will repeat the massacre which started the decline of Western Civilisation which had been built solely on the quest for Truth.

    I agree that our colleges are being used to indoctrinate rather than educate. Lt Col. West, I do not believe that would have happened to you if you had been a registered Democrat. I believe whole heartedly that our radicalized enemies have infiltrated the left and are using their doctrin against us. Our so called leadership in D.C. has only fanned the flames. I am a 27 year veteran of the U.S Armed Forces, and the direction our country is headed causes me a great deal of worry. I certainly hate the thought of defending myself against my countrymen and waht that would entail. I am afraid, however, that is the direction we are headed……note the movement by some to label veterans as dangerous.

    I stand with our founding fathers, I stand for all that has made America great, and I stand with Israel.

  • Bramble

    It was Hadrian that banned the calendar! Thank you. You have just made my rather lazy study of history a little easier. This is why we celebrate Christmas and Easter, not the Levitical feasts. It took early Christians a century more to solidly stand against the Torah, but we did it. During that century we completely reconfigured theology, and figured out a way to be Christian without having that stain of being considered a Jewish sect. Constantine allowed Christians to escape persecution, as long as they lived by the Roman calendar!

    • Paul Robinson

      Any citations?

    • shawn

      It was a Jew who brought Christianity to non Jews. His name was Paul the apostle and he taught that non Jews didn’t need to live by Jewish law except that they see it as a healthy way to Live.

      • Bramble

        If you really wonder, there’s lots of info. Most people just want to argue. Try Firstfruits of Zion if you want to study. I first went to meetings that taught this, because I loved Israel. After some time, I began to wonder if what they taught was true. I dug out an old church history book, and… voila! There it all is. The western church has been antisemitic, much to our disgrace. The western church has spent most of it’s history in ignorance and illiteracy, much to our disgrace. Time to study.

      • shawn

        I couldn’t agree more, and the main fact is we have almost entirely become, a what’s in it for me nation. My personal belief on that is it started small. It started when we took prayer out of the schools. Then the pledge of alliegance. It’s come to the point where the only thing left is what the big government wants us to believe for the most part, and people stopped standing for what was right and just, and became about all that we could get away with.

  • larry tanton

    Who in their right mind doesn’t want the Truth is what gets me, it’s like some have been brainwashed into ignoring anything that comes from a Conservative or an Christian.

    • trixiewoobeans

      I can tell you that as a former Lib Dem, taught to distrust all things Republican and Conservative, I avoided “the Truth” because it made me so insecure, thinking possibly most of what I believed in was false. When you have hardcore convictions, then somebody or something challenges them, it really shakes you up. You have to choose to continue in (un)happy ignorance, or grit your teeth and hear, weigh and consider the “other side.” I decided that even if the Truth was painful, and yes, sometimes frightening to me, I would pursue it. Those people who walked out chose to remain in ignorance.

      • trixiewoobeans

        I might also add there’s a large element of ego involved in Liberalism. They are convinced, and convince you, that they are morally and intellectually superior.

    • Sherill Weber

      Jewish terrorists??? Where DO you get your information from? So you must be for Palestine,,,,the same Palestine that has named their library Osama Bin Laden because they want to honor him. Honor the “Bass Tard” terrorist that was behind 9/11 and killed 2,977 Americans. They have made him a martyr. Worship your muslims,,, but watch out because they will kill you without a second thought. Jews would protect you. You say we want to become more powerful in the “Jewnited States”,,,,you need a lesson,,,,you liberals say the Jewish own the big banks. Goldman Sachs ring a bell???? Well those big banks are the ones that donated huge money to Obama’s campaign. Dumb A$$. And think about how many billions of dollars have been sent to Palestine only to have them that piece of crap Bin Laden.

      • Hamza Nadeem

        Youre the one who needs to get your facts straight. Pakistan hasn’t named the library but a Pakistani CLERIC (ie fundamentalist) has made a library. Also, how many Iraqis and Afghanis has America- and yes, the American government- killed. Many more than 3000. Theres bad people everywhere in the world, but stereotyping a whole religion or nation shows the same lack of tolerance that is being denounced in this post.

      • Sherill Weber

        But it’s ok to put down the Jewish Religion??? The library has been named after Bin Laden. http://www.foxnews.com/world/2014/04/18/pakistani-cleric-who-runs-islamic-school-for-girls-names-its-new-library-after/

      • Hamza Nadeem

        The state of Pakistan has nothing to do with the naming of the library. You can’t attribute an individuals actions to a whole state. You criticise Muslims, so i think you answered the question yourself, it would probably be okay for me to criticise Jews, which i wont do because i know that not all Jews are responsible for the actions of some. But i wouldn’t expect anything else from someone who uses fox news as their primary news source

      • Sherill Weber

        I sent you another link,,,read it. I don’t use Fox news as my primary. I read them but I also go out and investigate what I read. I also read what Allen West post and others. Let me ask you this….if it was reversed and you were always reading how Christians were going around killing Muslims just because they were Muslims,,,how would you feel? I don’t go around saying death to Muslim. But I do say I don’t trust them because of it. And I’m not arguing with you. I really would like to understand why.

      • Hamza Nadeem

        I mean living in Pakistan, i always hear about the several civilians killed by American drone strikes, so i should say that i don’t trust the Americans? That website is very anti-islam, and there is alot of anti-islamic sentiment in the west just due to the actions of a few individuals. I understand how you would be enraged by the killing of Christians, but there are good and bad people everywhere. I can assure you there are many more Christians that are living peacefully.

      • Sherill Weber

        Yes I am enraged about all the killing of the Christians and at the same time I am enraged about all the killing of innocent civilians killed in drone strikes. But again as a Christian how do I know the difference between the good and the bad? Who’s the Brotherhood and who isn’t? On one hand we hear that the Muslims want to kill us and on the other hand we have the atheists ridiculing us for our beliefs and suing to take any religion they can away from us. We hear that the Muslims want the world to be one religion,,,theirs. We hear about the holy war. If you don’t join their religion they will kill you. I have never hated any one religion and I still don’t. I would have to say my feeling are from fear that somebody want to kill me because of my faith.

      • Hamza Nadeem

        My parents are muslim and they have alot of not Muslim friends, and all of them are still alive. Most of my friends are muslims and their friends in college are non-muslims, and i have yet to see anyone killed. You cannot attribute the actions of a selected few to an entire religion.

      • Sherill Weber

        If your parents are Muslim why aren’t you? Of course that really is none of my business. Let’s get back to what Mr. West posted. Why did or why would several people walk out?

      • Hamza Nadeem

        Also, you make a lot of assumptions. I am not even Muslim.

      • Sherill Weber

        You have your right to say what you want and defend yourself but you tell us why Muslims are killing Christians. You say there are good and there are bad…how do we know the difference when all we hear about is how another Christian or Christians have been murdered. And how all we hear about is how the Muslims want to kill the Americans. I am a Christian,,,you tell me how I know who to trust and who not to trust. Explain it. I attached another link for you. This is what we see and hear. http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/Pages/ChristianAttacks.htm

      • Hamza Nadeem

        Well i mean its not like the Christians ever did any prosecution you know-say the Crusades, The Inquisition, and the Witch-hunts. I’m sure you as a Christian can explain how that is different from the Islamic fundamentalists of today?

      • bobcchicago

        You need it explained to you how those actions are different than say for example 911? Really??

      • Hamza Nadeem

        I mean its not like the Christians ever did anything wrong. The Crusades, the Inquisition, the Witch Hunts. How would you differentiate those from present day Islamic fundamentalists?

        Neutral way? Comparing the Crusades, Inquistion and witch hunts to today’s actions by Muslims killing innocent Christians?

    • Kim in California

      I’m actually cool with them walking out. Sure, it would have been better for them to stay and listen to everything that was said so that they could be informed, but they could have erupted into a more vocal protest making it difficult for the 40 who remained to hear the truth. The great thing about America is that we do support the right to protest, even when the protest is based on faulty logic and poor factual information. Who knows, maybe some of them heard enough to make them question what they thought they know.

      • 4deuce

        I tend to agree with you about accepting civil sorts of protests. I begin to be less tolerant of those whose protest when those protestors delibeartely include disruption of events – so others wishing to hear a speaker cannot do so. IMO, at that point it is the protestors who morph their protests into criminal acts of public disruption that (justifiably) negates their very own right to “protest”. Walking out is their legitimate right and it does send a message – or messages. Some viewers of the protest might interpret their walkingout as simply a silent expression of disagreement with the speaker/presenter. But many will instead see their walkout as their refusal to listen to any opinions other than their own – thus causing them to be view in less than respectful ways by those viewers. Acts can be interpreted in numerous ways, In this case, the protestors did nothing to make their opinons appear laudable.

  • Ebenezer

    What are the Palestinians? Well, mostly they are the descendants of Egyptian workers brought in by the Turks to solve a labor shortage, plus the Circassian (from the Caucasus mountains — Caucasians) women that the Turks brought for their umm comfort. Add to the mix the miscellaneous remnant of Christianized Arabs and Jews, and the descendants of Edomites and Amonites and there you have it.

    • Wayne Force

      And you hate them all right? You previously stated there are no Palestinians didn’t you? So what is it? Maybe you should go live among those non existent “Palestinians” on the Gaza strip and see how Israel has quarantined them in that “concentration camp”. Every group has good and bad people. You can’t paint them all with the same brush. I see what Israel does to illegally expand their lands while killing those who stand in their way. Where is the outrage for this? As long as humans kill each other for power, money, and religion we will never ever advance as a species. We are doomed to destroy ourselves because the good people of this world are not standing up against evil like they should. Sad.

      • tammytnt

        “Palestinians as a nation do not exist. They were a nomadic people. Arafat gave them that name, to try to give them some legitimacy. Israel, has given up much of their land, as was given to them after WW2/ The Palestinians were suppose to go to Jordan. Muslims in Jordan, Jews in Israel. The Muslims want it all, and murder Israelies on a regular basis. If Israel let Palestinians lose on their lands, many more Israelies would be murdered. Unlike our country, the Jews protect their people the best they can.

      • Wayne Force

        @TammyTNT – You say: “Palestinians as a nation do not exist. They were a nomadic people.” You mean like the biblical Jews who wandered without a land of their own? Bottom line is they are people no matter what you call them and should be treated as so. Why don’t you Google “Israels theft of land” and have a look. Plenty to read there! The hard core Israelis and Jews are just as bad as the rest of them! I think they have all been out in the desert heat a little too long!

      • tammytnt

        God gave that land to the Israelis. No man has the right to take it. All those years that most of the Jews had been taken from their land, there was still a majority of Jews in that land. The Palestinians are Muslim and belong in Jordan. That was the original contract. They are considered a dirty people, much like gypsies, and the Muslim countries do not want them. Let the Muslims take them, they do not deserve the land that belongs to Israel. Have you seen the original map of the area once divided. Israel was twice the size it is now. They keep giving up land for peace, but never get the peace. The Muslims will only be happy when the Jews are all dead, every man, woman and child all over the world. Then all other religions, convert or die. Thank God for his promises. He says that when they try to destroy Israel, they will be attacked from all sides, God will step in and save his people and those who come against them will have the wrath of God upon them. But in the mean time, things will be pretty bad for all of us. It is all in the Bible. Watching the word of God unfold is amazing

      Frankly, if our kids reach our universities and don’t have the ability to question and search for the truth, we parents only have ourselves to blame. I went through a liberal university and I can tell you, my friends who DON’T have college educations are as liberal, if not more, than those with college educations.

    Allen, despite being a Libertarian, I appreciate the fact that there are numerous opinions in the world different to mine.

  • tarcil

    There is one thing that often gets lost in this discussion, though – it’s not 100% about the Israelis vs. radical Muslims. There are Palestinian Christians as well, and they often get caught in the crossfire between the two sides. They are definitely a small minority, but they can face persecution from both sides.

    • Timothy-Allen Albertson

      So-called Palestinian Christians like Sirhan B. Sirhan? Still pallie terrorists.

      • Ebenezer

        Palestinian Christians are the archetypical Dhimmis.

      • DJ

        bwahahaha bullshit. I come from a Palestinian Christian family. Christianity is treated better in PA areas than in the US. Just this Easter there were thousands of Christians celebrating in the streets of downtown Ramallah.

      • Ebenezer

        BFD. Ramallah is a city founded by Christians.

      • http://www.norad.mil/ Dr_Falken

        That’s awesome! You should take your act on the road! :-) I recommend going into Mecca, and explaining that you are a Palestinian Christian, and would like to build a church there. Go on, we’ll wait :-)

        Oh, and when/if you return from your pilgrimage to build a church, try going to Jerusalem and applying for a permit to build a Church. I’ll bet you have a warmer reception in Jerusalem than Mecca.

        But you already knew that.


      • tammytnt

        OK, I’m dumb. What is Dhimmis? It is not even in my dictionary

      • Ebenezer

        Dhimmi is the Arabic/Muslim term applied to subjugated peoples. Supposedly it means people under protection, but it just means second-class citizen of a Muslim society. Usually Christians and Jews, sometimes Zoroastrians.

      • tammytnt

        Thank you. Love it when I learn something new

      • tarcil

        Your comment actually made me feel slightly ill – such an astoundingly dumb and brutal thing to say, writing off the Christians there who live every day in fear of their lives as “pallie terrorists”. That attitude is as intolerant as the students who walked out of Col. West’s lecture. Because of that one man’s actions, every Palestinian Christian is a terrorist? Are there entire terrorist organizations of Christians that mirror Hamas and the PLO? Of course not.

        From the strange and contradictory things he’s said, Sirhan seems like he has psychiatric problems far beyond any religious, political, or rational motive. But if anything, his history illustrates the persecution that Arab Christians face from both Jews and Muslims; while they face hardship and persecution from Muslims, often the Israelis have not treated them much better.

      • DJ

        LOOOL the PLO was founded by a Palestinian Christian. As was the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine. There are also currently 11 Palestinian Christian Ambassadors and 9 Palestinian Christian mayors, including the mayor of Ramallah- the capital of the Palestinian government.

      • bobcchicago

        Did the Palestinian Christians tie bomb vest to children and send them in to cafes to blow everyone up?

  • koowah

    You can quote history all you wish, but the facts on the ground today are that the occupation of Palestine is brutal. Palesstians, both Christian and Muslim are denyed basic human rights as more and more of their property is conficated or destroyed by an illegal occupying force that mocks civil behavior..

    • Ebenezer

      There is no such place as Palestine. It was made up by the Roman occupiers of Israel to punish them. There is no such person as a Palestinian.

    • Timothy-Allen Albertson

      So-called palestinians are treated better by Israel than in muslim country. BTW, how was your celebration on Sunday 22 April last of the 125th Birthday of your Onkel Dolphie?

    • tammytnt

      There has been a Jewish majority in that area since before Jesus. After WW2 the Jews were given back their homeland and the Muslims were given Jordan. The problem came when the Jordanian Gov refused to let the “Palistinians” (given that name by Arafat) into Jordan. The “Palistinians ” are reviled by other Muslims. They were a nomadic people, much like Gypsies, with the same kind of reputation. No Muslim country wants them, they want Israel to give their land to the Palistinians. Send them back to Jordan, let them give them land. Israel is the only country in the middle east who do not kill different religions, or people. They all live under the same laws, not like all Muslim countries, that murder Christians and Jews for sport, without penalty

        A very angry reply, I almost deleted it, but changed my mind, Mister Smith, try to send money to Christian orphans is Bethlehem, I will name one orphanage for you, Home of Peace, run by Catholic nuns from Poland. There was a service project by a Catholic high school student, she earned over two thousand dollars, She is still attempting to get the money to the orphans long after Christmas. Nothing happens without approval of the occupying force, and approval is almost impossible. I will stand by my statement, an occupying force that mocks civil behavior. Or do you consider Catholic nuns a threat to Israel also?

      • Ebenezer

        Why did she not send the money to the official representative in the USA? They would take care of it.

      • koowah

        What official? It must go to Israel, and then to Bethlehem.. It is an occupied country. The hold up is in Israel. It is difficult. You won’t know unless you try.

    What is really scary is the current strategy of appeasement for the radical Muslim factions in Palestine by Obama is straining the only restraint Israel has to not annihilate the Palestinian military factions there. The ONLY thing that has stopped one of the most powerful militaries on Earth from laying waste to the desert that is Palestine is the United States. Obama is doing everything he can to eliminate that relationship, and with it, Israel’s only reason to NOT destroy the very fractious terrorist elements in the Middle East that thinks blowing up babies on buses is an acceptable military strategy.

It’s costing Calif. 1.6 million to buy computers and train teachers to how not to teach. I help in a kindergarten class and the language used to subtract is decompose. How in the world can 5 year olds learn this? Forcing children to not think their own thoughts but to answer test questions (on a computer) over and over until the Common Core computer receives the answer required, Whether it is correct, wrong or what the child thinks. First there is no common child. Each child is unique and learns different from another. Mr. West, please get the book Common Core the Trojan Horse. Our young children need you to be their voice.

    I would love to read the text of this talk and educate myself on this history. As for the students who walked out, I am inclined to agree with the comments that say these people only attended so they could stage their mass walkout. I saw a similar leftie “protest” at a speech Condoleeza Rice gave at Stanford when she was National Security Advisor. It was ridiculous.

    • Ken Williams

      Wish that would happen with the current National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, who is ill equipped for her position. Our ‘place’ in the eyes of the world speaks to her bumbling, and this present administrations.

  • Larry Miller

    I would like to see the history of their protests follow them to their first employment attempt and be asked if they would walk out when asked to perform their duties.

  • Gregg Dudash

    Let’s use liberal logic here. Allen West was the speaker. 30 students walked out of his speech obviously because he is a black conservative. He supported Israel. Conclusion: those 30 students are racists and anti-Semites. As such, they should be expelled for their racism which, I’m sure, violates DePaul’s political correctness guidelines.

  • PenelopePitstop

    Keep on speaking the truth Allen, hopefully it will penetrate their ignorant soul.

  • Lois Elmore

    Good for you. What is the saying…if we don’t learn from the past, we are doomed to repeat it? Same could be said for our mistakes. Education right now is not education but indoctrination. Most college profs are either extreme liberal or socialist. keep up the good work.

    Well, Sir, maybe the tide of ignorance is shifting in our favor since 30 of 70 exited. The larger percentage are more informed and better for it. Keep teaching the facts as they are.

  • Richard Keith Ross

    Colleges are not places of learning TRUTH, but, a breeding ground for hatred of Israel, Christians or anyone who has the Truth and speaks it. If they had their way they would dig up my ancestors, Hancock, Henry, etc. and hang them all for treason. I am a 7th Generation American Patriot and I know one thing for sure. We Christians win; Israel wins when all is said and done. You see God keeps His Word as He has since the beginning of time and their is only one way to eternal life…..it is through a Jewish Carpenter. They all must hate that FACT! If Israel would have done what God told them to do before they took possession of the Promised Land, we would have no Arab-Israeli Conflict, because, they wouldn’t exist.

  • phdkremlinonthecharles2

    So a bunch of liberals walked out on Ltc. West’s speech. By the standards set by liberals I guess that makes them all racists!

    • bobcchicago

      I don’t think it was a bunch of liberals–I wasn’t there but I think it was mostly Muslim students who are anything but liberal.

    • NunyaDangBisness

      That is the most illogical statement I have ever heard. They must be racist because they walked out on a lecture? Are you just stupid, or are you actually mentally deficient?

      • phdkremlinonthecharles2

        Obviously you don’t understand! If it was a black Democrat speaking and students walked out, they would be called racists. It is “Illogical” and that’s the point! No offense, but jees…

    • DunthorpeMD

      I am as conservative as the day is long and thought Reagan was too liberal and when Col. West started in with his love affair with Israel at the expense of the truth and the facts I would have walked out as well. As much as I love so many of the things Col. West says and believes he is also smart enough to know that you do not get elected to national office or to the presidency without paying lip service to Israel … the rest of you need to open your eyes and take a good hard look at the values and conduct of the little country you are supporting because the truth is ugly

    Ah, that is correct. The Muslim brotherhood did assassinate Egyptian president Anwar Sadat. I remember the news of that day, and for me the historical context of the Muslim Brotherhood being a terrorist, and treasonous organization will remain constant. Actions speak louder than words and no doubt the Egyptian people also have a long memory when it comes to having their leader assassinated. The Egyptians needed to forcibly remove the Muslim Brotherhood from rule in light of the horrific conditions they ushered in. Credible reports of Mosques being used as torture chambers. I don’t know if conditions are changing for Christians in Egypt today but with 50 percent of a Christian population reduction, a population that was once 20 percent in the middle east and is now only 10 percent of the people is a level of genocide comparable to the Armenian genocide which most Muslim leaders also claim never happened.

    I have to say that your brief discription of your speech was amazing. I am a new student at Metro State University of Denver Colorado and am loving it. Be in mind I have been out of school for fifteen years but I am a sponge more than ever. I would enjoy the chance to attend one of your lectures if you ever get the chance to stop into Colorado. Keep strong in your truth.

  • Wilecoyote

    I guess the thought police is out in full force at most colleges now. There’s no way you can have any serious conversation with these ‘students” and if they are not in school to learn, what are they there for? Yes, I guess truth can be painful sometimes…

    That is all we need is a few good men. We do not need the rest. If they were bright enough they would have listened and learned. Thank you Colonel West.

  • blackyb

    Remember, it is not the Jews they are after, it is God Himself. That is their goal to eradicate the Word of God from this earth so the followers of God and those who would be His followers will be at their mercy. They know, perhaps unconsciously, that our strengtth is in the Lord and is given to us by Him..

  • Sandra Johnson

    These ‘students’ came in with a mindset of not being tolerant. It sounded like they staged a ‘protest’ of unacceptance of what you, Mr. West, stand for. The truth hurts and when you don’t hear what you want to hear, you stop listening. Their itching ears were not hearing their ‘truths’. Thank you for such a fantastic history lesson. Israel has God’s blessing to be a country, albeit small.

    Ironically, liberals are more dogmatic than intellectual. Intellectual would imply continually growing and transforming in intellect, through debate. However, liberals do not want debate. They are rigidly entrenched in their belief and force it upon their captive students. More dogmatic than intellectual.

    I do not believe that standing for Israel either increases or decreases your standing with God. I do not understand this reasoning. However as a God fearing people we stand on their side. That I am sure pleases God because it is the right thing to do.

    It is such a shame that Universities have become less a learning institution but a hot bed of radical ideas that are raping young and impressionable minds.

    • gregzimmerman007

      I think the bigotry of students, especially the hatred of Jews and Israel begins with an indoctrination of hatred of these people and their religion right from the start – from their parents.

      Then of course there is the scapegoat part-of-it which acts as a diversion from whatever else is going wrong in the world — historically the Jews have been picked-on when some group is needed to absorb the blame or be “faulted”; And, look no further than the Eastern Ukraine today where a pro-Russian group apparently released thousands of fliers calling for the registration of all Jews less they be arrested (otherwise they should flee the country).

      And so on from there…

    Americans must understand that Islamic Jihadist are not “Extremist Muslims”, they are the Muslim Leadership.

  • koowah

    Mister west has a certain viewpoint, those who follow him have the same viewpoint. That does make them right or wrong, Those who walked out had a right to do so. Many post what they believe, some lie, some twist history. As for who owns what in Israel, I would defer to those who have documents showing taxes paid for generations. They are Christian, Jew and Muslim. I would not consider a claim from an Eastern Europena who uses the bible as legal right to anything. One day we will all face our maker and at that time we will know who was right, who was wrong.

    • mcorps

      It boils down to this with me. Jews are more tolerant than Muslims. We never hear of them killing to enforce the Torah. When I go to symphony hall, a hospital, an art museum, I see philanthropists names on the walls — names from the ghettos of Eastern Europe, survivors of the holocaust and their descendents. The winners of Nobel prizes in physics, math, and medicine are disproportionately Jewish. Jews took a neglected land and made it productive while the Muslim land owners not only bled their tenant farmers dry, but lived lives of luxury in Beirut and Paris, drinking Dom Perignon while chasing the whores of a dozen nations. So, what is hard to understand? Jews are more worthy.

      • Ebenezer

        Re: Nobel Prizes, Mohammad Abdus Salam, the only Muslim to win a Nobel in science is an Ahmadi, a sect of Islam that originated in India. He lived in Pakistan (AKA Muslim occupied Western India) Where it is illegal for an Ahmadi to call himself a Muslim.

        Auschwitz – This is fascinating.

        The following is a copy of an article written by Spanish writer

        Sebastian Vilar Rodriguez and published in a Spanish newspaper on Jan.

        15, 2008. It doesn’t take much imagination to extrapolate the message

        to the rest of Europe – and possibly to the rest of the world.


        By Sebastian Vilar Rodriguez

        I walked down the street in Barcelona , and suddenly discovered a

        terrible truth – Europe died in Auschwitz … We killed six million

        Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned

        a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed the chosen people,

        truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who

        changed the world.

        The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science,

        art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the

        world. These are the people we burned.

        And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to

        ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our

        gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance,

        religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to an

        unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.

        They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities

        into the third world, drowning in filth and crime.

        Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they

        plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.

        And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical

        hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for

        backwardness and superstition.

        We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their

        talent for a better future for their children, their determined

        clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for

        people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for

        our children and theirs.

        What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe.

        The Global Islamic population is approximately 1,200,000,000;

        that is ONE BILLION TWO HUNDRED MILLION or 20% of the world’s

        The Jews are NOT promoting brain washing children in military training

        camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths

        of Jews and other non-Muslims.

        The Jews don’t hijack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics, or

        blow themselves up in German restaurants. There is NOT one single Jew

        who has destroyed a church. There is NOT a single Jew who protests by

        killing people.

        The Jews don’t traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and

        death to all the Infidels. Perhaps the world’s Muslims should consider

        investing more in standard education and less in blaming the Jews for

        all their problems.

        Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its

        school curriculum because it ‘offends’ the Muslim population which

        Who you deem to be worthy and what is legal or what is moral are two differant things. If right or wrong was deceided on your criteria the world would be a very sad place. As for neglected land, there were ancient olive groves, vineyards, dates, and many other fruits that were exported all over the world. Destroying the remants of these is a prime objective of the “settlers”. Also, as more people become away of the true situation in Palestine, that sad old lie, “A land without people for a people without land no longer holds water.”

      • bobcchicago

        In this case what is legal and what is moral is the same.

        Do me a favor? I assume you are a Muslim? Please tell me when have Muslims protested the killings of innocent people in the name of Allah that is taking place in the world today.

      • koowah

        No, I am not a Muslim,,, but someone who states that the Jewish person is more “worthy” and therefore should have certain rights, certain land, is offensive. I would never presume who is worthy. I know many wonderful Jewish people, I know a few who are not. Are they worthy, it is not for me to decide, I don’t know any Muslims on a personal basis, but I would not assume who was and was not worthy, the same with Christians. Christians are being slaughtered by Muslims and Jews have been slaughtered by Christians. That does not change what is legal and what is moral. The occupation of Palestine, or the West Bank if you prefer, is neither legal or moral.

      • Mike Currid

        Koowah, When you make statements such as “If right or wrong was deceided on your criteria the world would be a very sad place.” then you expose yourself a closed minded person pretending he has all the answers. This is the very point the posters who you disagree with are trying to make. Open your mind and listen to people you don’t necessarily agree with. You’d be surprised what you might learn from the rest of us, even though we may not be as enlightened as you seem to be.

  • bobcchicago

    Colonel West,

    I am sorry that I was not aware that you were speaking at DePaul. I would have loved to have been there to support you and what you represent.

    At both DePaul and Loyola, they have a group of students that are attempting to get the Schools to ‘Divest’ from Israel investments. They also have speakers and host movies about the ‘Palestinian struggle’. Two weeks ago at Loyola they were celebrating women in the Palestinian struggle. I found this odd because at this time the documentary film “Honor Diaries” was in the news. I commented on the Loyola Divest FB page and was told that this was off the point.

    I have also commented that I found it odd that Muslim and Christian students didn’t protest the worldwide killings of innocent Christians by Muslims.
    I guess it is just like 911 and every other Muslim atrocity committed against innocent people – they just don’t care, the street is one way. The only protest that I heard of by Muslims recently was about a flier that a father saw about an Easter egg hunt in Michigan.

    I am no longer allowed to make comments on DePauls Divest FB page. As you said they do not want to discuss the other sides thoughts.

    In my opinion Americans should be alert to what these Muslim groups represent and what they are trying to accomplish in America. If that statement makes me a racist, then so be it.

  • Steve Etheredge

    yes, it is disappointing, but not surprising. our institutions of “higher learning” have become nothing more than liberal agenda indoctrination vehicles for the weak minded. “thought” is the last thing these institutions want. “independent thought” is frowned upon and even quashed. it is a sad, sad direction our country has chosen. further and further away from the moral fabric our founders had intended – further and further away from our SUPREME GUIDANCE! no matter how badly this nation thinks it is all powerful, all important, we desperately need the guidance of THE ONE TRUTH!

  • Don Anastas

    Col. West – try visiting another RADICAL at the Northwester campus. Her name – Bernadine Dohrn, Associate Law Professor, co-founder of the Weathermen Underground and wife to Bill Ayers. It’s too bad ilk like this are allowed to teach at universities. You can’t get a law license but you can teach on a top university campus in America.

    After being acquitted of domestic violence on a technicality Bill Ayer said – “Guilty as sin, free as a bird.”

  • Yabetcha

    Thank you, Lt. Col West. One of the BEST explanations of FACT I have read! Keep Up the Good Work!

  • SHOTGUN285

    Is the transcript of your lecture available? I would really like to read it. Thanks!

    • alnga

      also read Hal Lindseys “Everlasting Hatred” It ties Allen’s lecture back to the British mandates and the Balfour agreement of 1922.

      • SHOTGUN285

        Thanks for that. I’ve read “Pity the Nation” which is about Lebanon, and also “A Peace to End All Peace: The fall of the ottoman turkish empire and the making of the modern middle east”. Both are great books that really get into the background of that era. Also being that my spouse is Lebanese and I travel there a lot, so I am much more aware of the day to day politics than most.

  • fullerhonda

    Thank you for the history lesson, Mr. West.

  • alnga

    the typical college student of today would have a great deal of difficulty getting out of the high school I attended in the 1950’s. We rank in the low middle in all of the required subjects to live a successful modern life. All of the great Parochial schools and the better public schools are breeding hate,, intolerance of truth and down plays the motivation to be intentionally living a God centered life.. We have now breached the borders of our State of idiocracy.

    • Dana R Casey

      Not all public school teachers teach liberal ideas. I fight for truth. I fight to create thinkers, not followers. I am trying to lead those that I touch out of Plato’s cave. Not all teachers are liberal useful idiots.

    • koowah

      How are the great Parochial schools breeding hate? As a product of Parochial education, with nine grandchildren attending Parochial schools, I assure you, you a sadly mistaken. Parochial High students all must do service work. Sadly, Christmas money earned in a recent serrvice project for Cristian children in Bethlehem is still being up by Isralie authorities, I would suppose an eighty year old nun running an orphanage is a danger to the I.D.F.

  • Steven Shaltiel

    Mr. West, I was at this event. First off, I want to thank you for speaking at DePaul; your lecture was very informative and I enjoyed hearing your opinions on foreign policy. I was embarrassed to be a part of a university which displayed so much ignorance last night; what you didn’t know, is that they planned on walking out before you even spoke a word. They waited for the clock to strike 6:25, which even further demonstrates the ignorance of those individuals.

  • Steven Shaltiel

    Please don’t let the event last night discourage you from speaking at more liberal universities. We need voices like yours to be heard! Universitites like DePaul are the places that need the truth most desperately.

    • Rena

      I’m sure he won’t give up. This action by the students is appalling in our day and age that they are incapable of hearing the other side. I’m afraid our universities are producing a bunch of drones to follow orders without questioning the issues…

    • HonestToAtee

      Never fear, Allen West has received much worse than that from loony leftwing audiences! Thank you Steven for posting your honest remark. Israel is under assault by the global MB Caliphate movement and the tools that walked out last nite are nothing more than useful idiots that will one day be forced to convert or lose their head by the sword!

  • Peter Charles Miller

    Mr. West, I appreciate what you said to the kids at Faith Middle School at Fort Benning, GA and what you attempted at DePaul. It is obvious that those who grow up apart from reality can’t handle anything that upsets their box. Plato explained clearly that everyone starts off in the womb then migrates to the Cave of Illusions and only a few ever escape that cave to be born again into the true reality of the macro/micro cosmos. Those forty or so students are still tied to their chairs staring at the shadows of the cave believing strongly that those shadows are it and are reality. What they don’t understand is that those shadows are shadows of a reality of Laws that have placed them there because of their own past beliefs. They are in a hell of their own making.

  • whozits

      Or spend 2 minutes reading actual facts and hope nobody remembers you ever said something so ignorant :-)

      • Hamza Nadeem

        The fact that Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Pakistan and several others are included in this map seems to make me question its credibility. Last time i checked, none of these countries were Arab. Also, this is equivalent to saying how just because America is so big, I can come to Rhode Island and take it and no one will care.

      • http://www.norad.mil/ Dr_Falken

        If it were my map, I would have put “Muslim” instead of “Arab”, but I had to go with what was available. Sorry about the confusion.

      • Hamza Nadeem

        well then you’d have to include Bangladesh, Malaysia, and Indonesia as well right.

      • http://www.norad.mil/ Dr_Falken

        Again, very true — I’m not the one that made the map.

      • Hamza Nadeem

        then what were you trying to prove when using it if i may ask

      • PierceEye

        Forgot London

      • http://www.norad.mil/ Dr_Falken

        Oh, and for the record, if you wanted to come by and take the northern half of California, I personally would have no problem with it — it can only improve things.

        Actually, I would like to see Sharia law implemented in San Francisco, New York City, and Chicago, if only for a decade or two. I truly believe it will make the world, and the US, a better place.

      • Hamza Nadeem

        How ignorant is it to assume that all Muslim majority countries are run according to Shariah law. Just because a minority of Muslims want Shariah doesn’t mean that that is the sole defining characteristic of a Muslim majority state.

      • http://www.norad.mil/ Dr_Falken

        Here’s a hint: A few days ago, I took an elevator ride up to my workplace. The two people in the elevator were myself and a woman I work with. Neither of us thought anything of it.

        In Malaysia, it is illegal to do that unless that woman was my wife or sister. And Malaysia is only 65% Muslim.

      • Michael

        30 percent of BRITISH muslims agreed that death was the right penalty for apostasy.

      • HonestToAtee

        The problems are NOT between Arabs and Jews, it is that Muslums want to kill all Jews and then the rest of the Infidels, it is in your book! I have read it, I have read the Hamas Charter, there will NEVER be peace with Islam, Islam does NOT allow for it!

      • Hamza Nadeem

        The fact that the Jews took away the land of the Arabs doesn’t really help the Arabs like the Jews anymore than they already did. Also, I don’t quite know what you mean by “my book.” Hamas is a terrorist organization denounced by the majority of Palestinians AND Muslims.

      • http://www.norad.mil/ Dr_Falken

        … in English, but in Arabic, they are supported, as they are the group that funds a lot of schools, and does a lot of charity in repressed Muslim countries.

      • HonestToAtee

        Stop lying, Arabs ran away in 1948 at the behest of the surrounding Muslim armies with the promise that Israel would become Muslim and they could return, the Jews told them to stay as neighbors. Their are videos of actual Israeli Arabs who were the ones admitting such! Here it is!


      • Hamza Nadeem

        The Jews must be the perfect people i assume. I urge you to look up the Sabra and Shatilla massacre. Also, if the Arabs did stay, how would the JEWISH state come into existence, because clearly, they would have been the majority. If Israel was so open to Arab citizens, why does it deny the right of return to the Palestinian refugees today?

      • HonestToAtee

        Lies of atrocities created by Arabs in order to anger the surrounding Arab States is nothing new, we saw that when the Hamas claimed 500 were massacred in Gaza several years ago, after investigations by the UN etc. it was proven to be a lie as is usually the case with Muslums!

      • Hamza Nadeem

        Okay so im guessing Israel should be okay with the absorption of the west bank and Gaza into Israel proper. well its not, the population of the Arabs far outweights the Jews and Israel would cease to exist as a Jewish state if that were to happen. They do not want to live side by side with the Arab “Muslums”

      • HonestToAtee

        Plus, it was none other than the Terrorist Yasser Arafat who walked out of Wye once Israel agreed to 98% of the Arab Terrorists demands, No! It has always been Israel making peace gestures by giving back the Sanai, by forcing the Jews out of Gaza in 2005, by giving and giving and giving. NO MORE GIVING to the people who want no peace!

      • Hamza Nadeem

        Firstly, Israel gave back the Sinai to Egypt, which to this day holds a peace treaty. Secondly, Israel can give back everything and still it would be nothing for the Arabs who believe the sole existence of the Jewish state is illegitimate.

      • chevymon77

        Nobody is stopping the Palestinian refugees from returning from their land in Jordan. However,Jordan won’t dare have them back either.

      • http://www.norad.mil/ Dr_Falken

        They were pressured to leave by their own governments. The story of what you call the Palestinians is indeed one of oppression. But the oppressors are the Arabs in Jordan and Egypt.

      • Michael

        Once Israelis start hanging homosexuals from lampposts, executing people for apostasy, forbidding women equal rights, and calling for the death of jews everywhere, you might then have a ghost of a point.

      • http://www.norad.mil/ Dr_Falken

        How dare you bring reality into this conversation? Hamza was working up a perfectly good head of steam with his emotions rather than actual thought, and you have to go in and ruin it with facts!

        Because it would be a tidal wave of jew-haters. Years of rocket fire bear that out.

        I wonder why you don’t condemn the other Arab nations who won’t even take the Palestinians. You obviously don’t want the Jews (a world minority due to extermination), to have their own small place in which to be safe.

        Boy, when anti-semitism and political correctness co-mingle…

      • Hamza Nadeem

        Why should the arabs pay for the anti semitism of that the europeans practiced against the jews. If i come to your house just because someone else oppressed me, in pretty sure your neighbor would not be okay with just letting you into theirs

        of the main problems in this scenario, is that we forget history. At what point
        was it “Arab” land? For
        millennia it has been in the hands of many empires – Egyptians, Canaanites, Israelites,
        Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Ancient Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, the Sunni
        Arab Caliphates, the Shia Fatimid Caliphate, Crusaders, Ayyubids, Mameluks,
        Ottomans, and the British. We seem to
        only focus on the last century. Now, if
        we do that, we also have to be cognizant of the fact that when a nation loses a
        war they often also lose land rights.
        Two things here: the Arabs in the region were aligned with the Germans in
        World War II and they lost. So they also lost land rights as reparations. Second, the Arabs in the region twice
        attacked the Israeli state and lost.
        They should not have been surprised at the loss of land for reparations
        or loss of strategic advantage. Bottom
        line, you can’t claim to be the victim while at the same time acting as the
        antagonist and aggressor.

        the Jews didn’t ‘take away’ the land. Much of it was purchased, and much of it was desert. The Palestinians fled before the oncoming Arab armies.

      • NunyaDangBisness

        Here’s where your argument falls apart…there are no real progressives in power right now. If you’re referring to Obama and his administration, they are far closer to being Republicans then they are Democrats, and nowhere close to being “Liberal” by any stretch of the imagination. They’re slaves to corporate interests (as both parties are these days), and with all of the expanded domestic spying, drone strikes on civilians, etc. the last thing they are is progressive. About the only “progressive” in Washington right now is Elizabeth Warren, and if you take fault with her, then Jack, you’re just a maroon.

      • gjsmith_62

        “fascism sought that control indirectly, through domination of nominally private owners. Where socialism nationalized property explicitly, fascism did so implicitly, by requiring owners to use their property in the “national interest”—that is, as the autocratic authority conceived it.”


      • NunyaDangBisness

        And this is different than what the Republicans and Democrats have been doing since the early 80’s how? Yea, exactly, so hush up. Please keep buying into this “us vs them” mentality when our two party system is basically just different shades of the same thing. And sorry, but the Tea Party isn’t a new party, it’s just “totally insane” Republicans. And I hate to tell you, but we ARE in an oligarchy.


      • gjsmith_62

        Well, when idiots vote for a despot like Obama, who changes via executive fiat laws he signed into existence, it ain’t an oligarchy, it’s a dictatorship.

      • DunthorpeMD

        You are offering up a false choice Michael … Just because Israel commits evil acts and violates human rights on a wholesale level doesn’t mean that the Arabs don’t ….this isn’t a beauty contest between two ugly people where one wins and the other loses….each of these entities must be looked at in relation to what is considered acceptable and on that scale they are both seriously deficient

      • Michael

        I say again. By focusing your criticism squarely on Israel, you tacitly ignore the GREATER atrocities of Israel’s neighbors. Aside from anti-semitism, political correctness, or moral bankruptcy on your part, I can’t imagine vilifying Israel in that context. You lament a broken bone while ignoring a cancer.

      • DunthorpeMD

        No, I don’t Michael… Jews don’t kill themselves. They kill other people. But in this case the answer is simple because there were no planes that crashed into those buildings…

  • Hamza Nadeem

    How does the fact that there are alot of Muslim countries help the case that Israel has a legitimate claim to the land, no matter however tiny.

    • http://www.norad.mil/ Dr_Falken

      I think the main issue here is that someone on one side of the issue may look at Israel as a very tiny part of the whole region, and may consider it humorous that so many people have so much blind hate towards a country.

      What people don’t understand is that if you were to superimpose a map of the Caliphate (the latest one available), it becomes obvious what the problem is — it’s one thing to have formerly Muslim land return to an “unclaimed” status, as in Spain, but another thing entirely to have a Jewish State right in the middle of land that was already “won” by Islam. Until people understand the reason behind the hatred of the state of Israel (hint: It’s very existence bothers some people), they won’t understand how truly to address the problem.

      • Hamza Nadeem

        I think the reason Israel bothers people is how its encroaching on the land that, according to many, isn’t theirs to begin with.

      • http://www.norad.mil/ Dr_Falken

        That’s kind of what I said — that land was “won” by Muslims many centuries ago. Of course, it was “won” by Jews many millenia before that, too, so it’s hard to really trace who should own some land based on who conquered it first. The Jews owned that land before Mohammed created Islam while on the road to worship his Moon G-d in Mecca.

  • Mike Graham

    Mr. West, truth, whether it’s told by you or written on the pages of the Bible, people have been running from the truth for years.

  • http://www.norad.mil/ Dr_Falken

    The larger the percentage of Muslim adherents in a country, the more likely they are to implement a higher percentage of Sharia law. It has to do with the way that Mohammed (pbuh) instructed adherents of Islam to spread it, and if you were to arrange the Koran in chronological order, it becomes much easier to see — look at the way that other people were treated in Sura 121, and then look at the way they were treated in Sura 9. You can see this progression, but you have to reorganize the Koran to do so (not remove the contents of any chapter, just arrange the chapters chronologically). I think you will find it an uplifting experience.

    Allah Hafiz.

  • Hamza Nadeem

    How nice of you to assume that i’m Muslim. I’m actually not, but what i do know that most, if not all, the relgions of the world have dirty hands, and it is unfair to create an Anti-Islamic sentiment just because Christianity and the likes have stopped the Crusades and what not.

    • http://www.norad.mil/ Dr_Falken

      Actually, I assumed that you were not only Muslim, but also not Pakistani — other Muslim groups would have said Khuda Hafiz — I was seeing if you would correct me.

      And I’m not creating Anti-Islamic sentiment – Leaders of Muslim Countries are doing a great job of that all by themselves, considering the vast majority of violent conflicts in the world are Muslim states that can’t get along with their neighbors. It’s no wonder that Israel faces such difficulty — I’d be shocked if any Muslim country decided to leave them alone for any length of time.


      But on to San Francisco — I think that that city would be very compatible with allowing Sharia law — after all, Mohammed (pbuh) liked to wear Aisha’s clothes, and he was reported being seen kissing one of his (male) companions using his tongue. So I think he’d fit right in, so to speak, and probably make San Francisco a much better place.

      * Edit: But only if there’s a lot of construction going on in San Francisco.

  • katekastorff

    Thank you for speaking the truth at a time when truth is not appreciated.

  • Hamza Nadeem

    I’m just assuming many people fail to see why people are so blatantly supportive of Israel, specially with all the settlements and the illegality of their actions. West is making an argument that there is no such thing as a Palestinian, which i dont have a problem with. That still doesnt change the fact that Israel has encroached on others land. Does it really matter who those people are, if they are Palestinians or not.

    • Sherill Weber

      Short version: In our Bible and our Christian upbringing,,,God loves all his children but has a favor to Israel and we are to defend it and not turn our backs on Israel. In our Bible, don’t know if you have one but Ezekiel 38: 1-23 it references the 2nd coming of our Lord Jesus and the wrath of God against those that go against Israel. It talks about a war against Israel and that’s when the wrath of God comes down and all shall know him.

  • HonestToAtee

    The truth of what happened in 1948 as told by actual Arabs who were in Israel! The Arabs subjugated these people to despicable treatment, NOT THE JEWS!


    • DunthorpeMD

      So those must have been Arabs slaughtering 100’s of men women and children back in 1948 at Deir Yassin. Honesttoatee if you truly believe that it was Arabs who subjugated the refugees to the despicable and shameful treatment the ones who found a way to survive it received then sir you are living in a twilight of psychic denial of an otherwise unambiguous historical record: the state of Israel was founded on terrorism and ethnic cleansing and it started in the middle east back in the 30’s. People need to really wake up and recognize that the US is giving unqualified moral support to a state that is based on racial purity and one that is intrinsically expansionist and has spawned more terrorist activities than any other country on the planet

      • http://www.norad.mil/ Dr_Falken

        Ah, yes, the “racial purity” gambit. It’s obvious, really, when you look at it. I mean, only Jews can serve in their parliament ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Arab_members_of_the_Knesset ).

        I mean, since only Jews can be on the supreme court of Israel, it’s interesting that you only hear of people decrying how racist Israel is. Oh, wait, there are Arab judges in Israel, and they say that diversity rules there? http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/143899#.U1fOv-YXh2I Say it ain’t so!

        But hey, I’ll give you an “Aleph” for effort! :-P

      • http://www.norad.mil/ Dr_Falken

        There’s a very easy way to see who’s right in the conflict between Israel and Jordanians living in what they call “Palestine”. This is also the way we can find out who is right between India and Pakistan, and [Muslim Nation Here] versus [Non-Muslim Neighbor Here]:

        If “palestinians” were to unilaterally stop fighting, within a year, there would be peace, and both “countries” would be living together. There’s a good chance that the security wall would cease to exist. Maybe the palestinians can help destroy the wall using the surplus explosives they always seem to have on hand. They would also be acting in conflict with the Koran, but we’ll shelve that point for now.

        If Israel were to unilaterally stop fighting, within a year, Israel wouldn’t exist anymore.

      • Michael


      • DunthorpeMD

        just not so

      • DunthorpeMD

        I’m not siding with anyone … you are trying present a false choice …it’s possible and very probable that both the Israeli’s and the arabs are bad

      • Michael

        By focusing SOLELY on Israel, when its neighbors are committing human rights violations greater in scope, scale, and cruelty, you ARE picking sides.

        More Arabs are killed by Arabs than by Jews. Case closed.

      • DunthorpeMD

        what a meaningless statistic … more arabs are killed by jews than jews by arabs …its something like 50 to 1 or more

      • Michael

        It’s not meaningless. It shows that you are focusing on a smaller problem.

        More arabs have been killed by jews while engaged in terrorism. I can’t feel bad that the Israeli’s are better trained and equipped. Given their treatment for centuries, they have a right to be stringent, because their enemies would not hesitate to exterminate them. Apparently that doesn’t bother you.

      • dghealy

    • Hamza Nadeem

      • PierceEye

        So then why does Jordan recognize Israel?

    • Hamza Nadeem

      Not to forget, the Palestinians that became refugees fled ISRAEL proper. Even though Jordan was part of mandatory Palestine, the “Palestinians” there became Jordanian citizens.

    The real problem is that the Arabs have a wonderful publicity policy. Although it is not truthful at all, it is very convincing for many people anyway.

    And, Israel does not have a propaganda department at all, the only thing that is done is to report events in a factual way.

    Facts are not convincing, but propaganda is.

      Unfortunately, you are right. It’s time for the GOP to learn this.

    • DunthorpeMD

      There is very little Israel has ever said or done that smacks of the truth. Israel’s propaganda machine is their control of 90% of the largest media corporations in the USA. The motto of the Mossad is “By Way of Deception, Thou Shalt do War” and no one has invested more time energy and money into deceiving people than Israel

      • http://www.norad.mil/ Dr_Falken

        Well, not to point out the obvious flaw in your hate-filled invective here, but the word taquiyya, which means “to lie for the cause” was invented by some dude named Mo a few hundred years ago, and has sort of been the modus operandi (look it up) of his followers ever since.

        So the Mossad has a motto that means that they hide what they do. Do the words “Secret Service” mean anything to you? I am not aware, however, of a word in Hebrew (ancient or modern) that means “fighting for Israel by means of deceiving the unconverted”. They may have the concept, but moslems have made it into an art form! :-)

      • HonestToAtee

    It doesn’t matter what continent Leftards are on, they can never handle the truth. State a fact & they will almost always reply with abuse.

    There will never be peace between Jew & Moslem, because Jew hatred is embedded in the Koran & Hadiths.

    That is why the Grand Mufti of Jeruslaem,Haj Amin al-Husseini (Yasser Arafat’s uncle) formed a strong alliance with Adolf Hitler because they shared the same ideology – absolute Jew hatred.

    You can be certain that these leftards have never read one verse of the Koran but know all about how ‘peaceful’ Islam is.

      • Michael

        ALL the religions have barbaric texts. How different cultures respond to their holy books is another story. But the Old Testament says to stone disobedient children, for instance. Fortunately Jews don’t take that seriously. But that is not to the book’s credit, but rather to our modern secular values.

    Just a few facts & figures to make the leftard heads explode.
    Israel has a total area of 21,770 KM² & a population of 7·5 million, including 1 million arabs (some would say 5th columnists).
    The surrounding 22 arab countries, have a total land mass of 390 MILLION KM² & a population of 410 million Moslems.
    So perhaps one of those leftards (any leftard?) can explain to me how Israel is an aggressor & are invading other arab countries to take over their governments (part of the Zionist plot these leftards dribble about)?
    Maybe they could also explain why all arabs in Israel have equal rights but no Jew in ANY arab country have ANY rights? Also what would happen to a Jew who wondered into a “Palestinian” (Fakestinian?) area?

    • DunthorpeMD

      Anyone who isn’t aware of the long list of aggressive Israeli provocations with their neighbors simply isn’t paying attention and anyone who thinks that the arabs in Israel have equal rights with the Jews in Israel is spewing forth complete ignorance of the truth.

It was the Israelis… The only people who could’ve done it were the Israelis and of course us. The only people who benefited from it were all Jewish Zionist New World order globalists Kazarian bad guys…. But, the list doesn’t end there does it pretty think was responsible for the Boston bombing and that was radical Islamists from Russia or Pakistan or wherever? No…. Not just no but hell no. How about the USS Cole, the people who are selling all of our nuclear secrets to the Chinese that they stole from us or that we gave them, the people who are selling our advanced weapon systems to our enemies as we speak not just the plans for the designs for the technology they’re selling the actual weapons systems some of which we gave to them for nothing. That includes our advanced helicopters and drone technology… Every time we turn around and catch a spy is a Muslim spy or is it an Israeli spy…. 9/11 was staged to drag us over to the Middle East so we could find a whole bunch of wars for Israel.

    Pro-Arab or Pro-Palestinians were attending to hear if you would say the Jews are a bunch of thieves and murderers and have no right to be in Palestine. Thank you for giving them the true history of the land. I have read on Virtualjerusalem.com Jews say that the Muslims claim Jews never lived in the area of current-day Israel, which is ridiculous. Some Americans believe the Jews have stolen the land from the Palestinians and hate them for it.

    • DunthorpeMD

      Actually what they are saying is that over 90% of modern day Jews descended from the Khazars (eastern European jews) and argue that since the Ashkenazi
      Jews are primarily Khazar and not Semitic in origin, they have no historical claim to Israel, nor would they be the subject of the Biblical promise of Canaan to the Israelites. This also undermines the theological basis of both Jewish religious Zionists and Christian Zionists and most significantly negates Israel’s right to exist in modern day Israel. From that perspective alone they would be correct. In my opinion Israel’s right to exist flow not from genetic inheritance or biblical covenants but from a UN mandate.

      All that considered it doesn’t give Israel the right to commit all of the human rights violations they are guilty of including establishing an apartheid state which we all know or should know they have done and continue to do. This lack of semitic blood in modern day Jews could explain the role the Ashkenazi Jews played in the holocaust on the side of the Nazis as well as the 30-40 million Russians they exterminated in the early 1900’s during the most deadly holocaust

        Once Israelis start hanging homosexuals from lampposts, executing people for apostasy, and calling for the extermination of all Jews, THEN you might have a ghost of a point.

        You don’t think that underwriting Germany’s war machine is collaboration?
        My comments are true regardless of what muslims think of homosexuality… when the Jews exterminated 30-40 million (some say as high as 60 million) Christians etc. in Russia were they any less dead because the Jews didn’t think to announce their plans to the world?

      • Michael

        I suspect it has to do with a) not being genocide and b) BEING a
        revolution. To call Marx, say, a Jew first and a Communist second is an attempt
        to tar “the Jews” with bias. Were there Jews involved? Obviously. Where the Jews
        anti-Romanov? Obviously too. He was an anti-semite. (Otherwise, my grandfather
        wouldn’t have fled and we wouldn’t be here.) Not being an apologist, but it
        wasn’t about eradicating “a race” and gassing women and kids as a policy.

        Whether or not you’re correct, the Jews and Arabs TODAY are vastly different in moral temperament. 70 years ago was 70 years ago. Today you are siding with a truly oppressive, cruel, fanatical culture against one of the more enlightened people in the region. Arab human rights violations dwarf anything Israel has done, and for FAR worse reasons.

      • twcooper@charter.net

        Jews have been returning to Israel since the early 1800’s. These Jews are the descendants of the original Abrahamic Jews. That is good enough for me. The Balfour Declaration in 1917 put the Jews in leadership of the area.

    Liberal minded people never deal well with facts, it seems their opinions are based on their emotions.

    • Michael

      That’s what liberals say about conservatives. From a moderate point of view, both parties sound the same.

      • http://www.norad.mil/ Dr_Falken

        Not true — liberals constantly berate conservatives for “not caring” or not having “a heart”, or not “feeling” enough. And most liberal arguments can be blown apart by a few simple injections of logic and facts and reason. They have different mindsets — the liberal mindset is r-type, where the conservative mindset is K-type.

        Case in point: A man murders another man in Wyoming over a disagreement involving meth. It just so happens that the victim is a homosexual (also, the perpetrator is as well). Liberals look at this and fall all over themselves to make Matthew Shepard the poster boy for the oppression of homosexuals. They want to make sure that everyone feels sorry for him, and that that feeling will help change everyone’s mind to make sure “that it never happens again”, by making it more of a crime to kill a man if he happens to be gay than if he is straight, making a homosexual life more valuable than a straight life. Meanwhile, at the time, conservatives see this as wrong, because we (humans) are all Created equal. Conservatives attempt to inject sound logic and reasoning into it, saying that all murder is, almost by definition, a “hate crime”, and no one person is more than another. Liberals get upset and say that Conservatives are “uncaring” and “heartless” for that assessment.

        Fast forward a few years, and it comes out that the perpetrator was actually homosexual as well, and that the argument was about a meth deal gone bad, and had nothing to do with sexuality at all. Conservatives point to the disposition of the case and say “see? We were right here; and because we were, we shouldn’t elevate one group of people above another group, just because of where they choose to stick their collective weiners.”. And liberals, once confronted with the facts of the case, and knowing that they are wrong, are completely silent on the injustice done to American Society perpetrated by them and their rush to do what feels good instead of what is good.

        Does that help?

  • Carl Sisco

    I have a daughter who came from college one day and made a statement about Vets. There was someone on TV talking about veteran’s fighting for their rights. She makes the statement to me (a vet) “you veterans, want everything.” I asked her what she meant and she goes on to tell me that one of her professors (a non-vet) was talking about how veteran’s demand everything just because they served in the military! I calmly explained to her how every veteran when they, enlist sign a contract with the government. In this contract it plainly states that for x years of service they will get certain benefits. Draftees are given the same benefits for the same amount of service since they were required to by the government in a time of war or need. I also told her about how many countries require so many years of military service. Because their military doesn’t pay well AND they get lousy benefits. Or like Israel and China, women also must serve. I then told her that the problem is, after the veteran are discharged . The government modifies the terms of the contract, changing things and taking away benefits they earned under the contract. I told her Vet’s simply want what the government promised them and to quit changing the terms of the contract after they’ve served and met the terms of their contracts. I also told her that if a business did that to it’s employees they could be sued. Unfortunately veterans can’t sue the government. She was dumbfounded as she told me that her professor never told her about the contract part. I told her of course he didn’t, he never served and was probably anti-military anyway. Of course she went to UNCW, a bastion of liberal ideology here and in NC. I told her to always learn the other side’s opinion and reason’s, before rushing to a judgment on anything. Her major, you may wonder? Criminal Justice…

    • Bud

      I agree with you completely. I am a recently retired teacher from WI and I could substitute the word teacher for vet and write almost the same paragraph. Our economy needs to be fixed but cheating public servants out of benefits that they are entitled to is not going to fix America. I’m sure there are a lot of state and federal workers like you and me that share our view

      • SHOTGUN285

        Yes Bud, but you have the opportunity to unionize, and can sue the government for changing it’s contract with you, but Vets don’t have that option. All they can do is get vocal and pressure their elected officials.

      • Bud

        If you are suggesting that the military should be allowed to unionize I disagree with you. If you are suggesting that the union or anti-union debate in WI is relevant I disagree with you. A contract is a contract. If someone gives 30 years of their life to serve the public, in my case as a teacher and in

      • SHOTGUN285

        No wasn’t suggesting that, I’m very anti union. I’m saying that at least you have other legal recourse for your greivance of a broken contract, and the military veterans do not have that option. That is why at least once in the past (that I can think of) there have been riots by veterans demanding what was promised them, they had no other recourse. You fortunately have the option to go to court and attempt to sort out the issue.

      • Bud

        But I only have that recourse through a union that no longer has the power or support to represent me in the state of wisconsin. A personal law suit is out of the question. I don;t have the benefits that my family and I have been counting on for the past 30 years (I’m sure I would have made more money in another profession even though I was able to supplement my income by coaching during the semester and summer months). I was a teacher in the public school system because I believe in education and that every child in America deserves a good one. When you look at it Carl and my situation is not much different. Believe me, I am a strong supporter of our military. My feeling is that the US government should honor it’s contracts with it’s public employees. And I feel if we want the best and the brightest serving in our military, teaching our children, planning our transportation, protecting business and commerce, etc. we need to have contracts that attract those people. Perhaps privatizing is part of the solution but not the entire solution.

      • SHOTGUN285

        I’m sure you’ve already looked into this, but isn’t this a situation for a class action suit? The concept of a traditional pension is outdated, and in effect is a ponzi scheme, that depends upon ever increasing numbers of participants to keep going, and politicians should have done something about this 30 years ago. Public servant pensions and benefits are going to bankrupt most of our large cities because they kept robbing peter to pay paul and never bother to privatize these funds and turn them into 401ks. While the union may have gotten you the benefits, I think they failed you by not doing something about this many years ago when it was obvious this was not going to be sustainable. Good luck to you.

      • Bud

        Nice try, but the school system also agreed to those benefits and convinced me to accept a relatively low salary because of those benefits and the agreement has been part of my financial planning. Why do you think a 401K is the solution?? Private investors and pension funds are investing in the same companies, businesses, bonds, etc as mutual funds and as we’ve learned it’s all a crap shoot no matter who is doing the investment. Good luck to me and good lock to us if we have a demoralized military and education system and the best talent no longer wants to serve. What is your solution for the military??? A bunch of government bureaucrats are writing and breaking those contracts as well.

      • SHOTGUN285

        Well every investment is a risk, that’s the nature of the beast. I know people that lost 50% or more of their 401k value during the Freddie Mac/housing bubble fiasco. The military has many more problems right now, such as a president that despises them and has no clue what he’s doing, and his political witch hunt has driven nearly 200 senior officers out of the military because they were loyal to the constitution and not to him. Now he’s further emasculating the military with absurd policy shifts towards gays and women in the military, force reductions, budget cuts, cuts to VA benefits, no help for the 22 vets a day committing suicide, little or no help for the large number of PTSD sufferers, also a VA that is over 20 months behind on disability compensation claims, etc. As a country we are pretty much screwed at this point. I always assumed that if I had children I would encourage them to serve, but now I probably won’t. I’ll probably be an expat within 10 years to be honest.

        Oh, then good luck to you.

        Thank you! That is the point I am making. I got out of it at the age of 60 but could have worked longer. I was a good teacher, I certainly worked hard and did my best and I think I may have made an impact in a few lives. And that’s exactly why I decided to go in to education. However, in today’s climate I never would have decided on that career path. Why would I choose an underpaid profession that is not valued by the society we live in or supported by the parents of our students. I would not choose to serve in our military for the same reason.

      • Nannette McGowan

        What you lost in WI was the right for teachers to have collective bargaining at the state level. You still have the ability to have collective bargaining at the county or district level. The reason for the change is that some county or districts with fewer cities and fewer taxpayers couldn’t afford the deals being made at the state level collective bargaining. If you do some research, you’ll find that most collective bargaining for schools is done at the county or district level in a majority of the states in the country.

        This battle between the state Republicans, the Democrats (supported by the teacher’s union) took place at a time when WI tax revenue had dropped due to the bad economy. When teachers were given a choice between lower wages so fewer teachers would be laid off, the teachers refused to help more teachers keep their jobs and still complained because of so few teachers.

        In this recession, the states suffered worse than usual because they not only lost sales tax revenue, income tax revenue and business tax revenue but property tax revenue dropped between 34% to 50%. Like private sector unions, the public unions did not care that the government was facing a huge reduction in tax revenue and the unions weren’t willing to accept any reductions even though the states, counties and school districts no longer had the funds to continue to keep the school spending and teacher’s salaries status quo.

        It was a lot more complicated than teachers getting picked on by Walker and the Republicans. There was a huge lack of tax revenue and teachers in WI just didn’t care.

I was looking for Rush Limbaugh’s second children’s book, “Rush Revere and the First Patriots.” I found a book on presidents and, being a history buff, I decided to scan the 2 to 3 page bios on a few of them. It was a complete indoctrination of socialism, expounding at length on those presidents who pushed entitlements and social programs but with shorter single page bios for conservative presidents. I’ve just been ill since then because I keep thinking about how our kids are being taught, from an early age, a completely skewed version of history. It makes me truly worried for the future of our country.

        Yes, and unfortunately revisionists have distorted the history in politically correct favor of the poor Palestinians.

        If you really want to assign blame, the Germans are responsible. If not for the Holocaust, none of this would have happened. Plenty of blame to go around. And for decades the Pals have refused all the peaceful solutions from Israel. Arafat messed up. But don’t feign ignorance. You know that the Arabs have not dealt fairly with Israel for decades. It has been a one-sided attempt at peace.

      • DunthorpeMD

        Israel has given the finger to any ‘peace process. Israeli land theft in the Palestinian West Bank has reached epic proportions under PM Binyamin Netanyahu. The right wing in Israel is so isolated from the real world that they have begun claiming that the Palestinian territories are not even occupied. They claim that the Palestinian rejection of Israel’s right to exist forces them to occupy Palestine (in fact, the PLO recognized Israel as part of the Oslo accords, after which the Israelis screwed the Palestinians over royally). They distort history and say the most ridiculous things, such as that the League of Nations Mandate awarded to Britain in the 1920s allows them to now steal Palestinian land and water without recompensing them! The brazenness and zombie-like relentlessness of this march onto other people’s land has provoked an increasingly influential international boycott movement, targeting the ‘settler-industrial complex’ that preys on the hapless Palestinians under Israel’s control. That is why the Church of England recently endorsed a World Council of Churches-inspired program that brings people to the Occupied Territories to see for themselves what Occupation is doing to the stateless and rights-less Palestinians. The resolution was a major defeat for the Likud, right wing branches of Zionism. Likewise, the US Presbyterian Church very nearly adopted a resolution to disinvest from companies perceived as enabling the Israeli land grab in the West Bank. As it was, they urged positive investment to help the Palestinian victims of Israeli injustice. These votes are straws in the wind. As Israel moves formally to incorporate the West Bank into itself, it must offer citizenship to the Palestinians on the land it covets, or else it would perpetuate the new Apartheid.

        Here you go Michael …read through this …but do it with an open mind …then try to match up this blueprint with what has really taken place since it was written …regardless of who you want to believe wrote it … The media has tried its best to ridicule this find but the bottom line is that every single things it lists has come true to some extent today … We have become intellectually lazy Michael and it’s probably going to cost us everything very soon …take a read and wake up

        Look Michael I don’t want to dog on you too hard because I was once as fooled as you are today. And it wasn’t until I opened my eyes and looked around and started re-aligning the parties to the things that they had done and not the things that they had said that I was able to finally make sense of it all. The Zionists are the great deceivers of our time. But of course what would you expect from the synagogue of Satan. Those people who say they are Jews who aren’t Jews…just like Jesus told us
        . The Zionists who control Israel and most of the world are not the who they want us to think they are…they aren’t God’s chosen people … can you think of even one thing Israel has done that would indicate to an outside observer that they were God’s chosen people? I could write a book listing all of the ungodly things they have done and stood for

        Dude, that is like saying “prove that child is your son by something they did.” God chose Jews in the OT and the death of Christ opened the door for all people to become God’s chosen people. Are you saying Muslims are the better alternative?

    Excellent points. To help in understanding I suggest all reading “The Big Lie” by Michael Cohen.
