This article was first published in November of 2005. That's eight (8) years ago. And nothing has changed. Recently I was sent a video link to a piece presented by Pat Condell. The video is hosted on bestwebdownloads.com and was titled: Israel and the United Nations. Mr. Condell asks "Why does the US allow the UN to remain on its soil?" and describes one good friend of The United States as the source of all terror and the 'absolute moral anus of the universe.'
With the world wondering what security the future holds given the situation in Iran and the Middle East in general (here and here and here) it seemed like a good time to resurrect this article.

Whilst 'The King's Calendar : The Secret of Qumran is an academic publication of the results of its' breakthrough in sorting out Biblical Chronology, the KingsCalendar Website has additionally become during it's short life, a repository for Social Commentary, (amongst other things)
To that end, I subscribe to a variety of different politically motivated newsletters and I frequently receive Newsletters from an organisation called "Women in Green."
This Jewish organisation is decidedly 'militant and orthodox'. Nevertheless I find interesting material within their articles.
One of their activities, is to sponser the 'Oleg Cartoon' series. I frequently save these cartoons for future reference, providing as they do, visual reminders of previous statements and claims.
In today's Oleg Cartoon, The United Nations is castigated for failing to abide by its' charter, for it permits Iran to call for the destruction of Israel.
The latest Cartoon is of course, a justifiable condemnation of the United Nations for its double standards when dealing with Israel. As anyone with half a brain knows, the United Nations is a club for the 'politically insane'.
In the article entitled: "Don't Mess With Texas" by Gerald A. Honigman, some interesting observations are made about the United Nations and the way it deals with Israel. Here are two excerpts from that article:
- The U.N. stood by and did nothing when a half dozen Arab armies invaded a reborn, miniscule Israel in 1948. Only when the Jews turned the tide did the U.N. step in...to limit Arab losses, not to halt their aggression. Armistice lines (marking the point where hostilities ceased)--not borders--were then set before Israel could advance any further.
- Indeed, when the United Nations Relief Works Agency (UNRWA) was set up exclusively to deal with Arab refugees created as a result of the war their own brethren started in 1948 (while there was no such U.N. help for a like number of Jews from "Arab" lands who were forced to flee as well), the very definition of the word refugee had to be modified to accommodate all of the new Arab settlers.
The United Nations Organisation as a title seems certainly to be oxymoronic, and it definitely seems to be the case that "the lunatics are running the asylum". Anyway, take a look at these cartoons and see what you think. (Photographs are reproduced with permission)

Self Publishing a Book: 'Terrible Reviews for Bad Writing'
By R.P. BenDedek

If you are writing a book, then you should have someone 'finding your faults' as you write. If you have already finished writing a book, then you need to find someone to review it - someone who will not feed you B.S. If you have already paid your money to a 'self-publishing' company, then pay the extra and use their editing services. If you are a first time writer and have a book that you want to publish, and you haven't yet paid the bill at a self-publishing company, you may feel free to discuss with us the possibility of a reviewer taking a look at it.
Helping Children Face Life's Realities

Israeli A.D. Erving played professional basketball for four years before turning to coaching children. He told me that he spent a lot of time as a professional, sitting on the bench just waiting for a chance to get out there and play. He told me that basketball is a team sport which means not everyone gets a chance to star in the spotlight, and that this is sometimes a hard lesson for children to learn. Tomorrow I will publish a small article Amir wrote specifically on that topic.
Hemudu Archaeological Site and Tianyige Library in Zhejiang

Immediately that we turned off the main road, we found ourselves on a rocky, pothole ridden dirt track weaving all over the place between thick foliage, and to our left and right were apparently new but derelict buildings some of which were unfinished, and all with smashed windows. It did not look promising at all. As we snaked our way down hill, we finally arrived at the river. And the museum? "Where is the museum?" - "Oh! It's on the other side. You have to take the ferry" says our driver.
The Dysfunction in the Religion of Peace

Muslim belief is that ultimately everything is Allah's will. Whether they approve or disapprove of the Kenyan massacres is irrelevant. It is Allah's will! Whether ordinary Muslims approve or disapprove of those terrorists is irrelevant. It is Allah's will! Whatever a Muslim may say with his lips, his true meaning is hidden in the back of his mind. It is Allah's will! Every Muslim, like every other true believer in every other religion, dreams of seeing the world converted to their god. For the Muslim therefore, every action that leads to the defeat or conversion of the infidel must be Allah's will.
