(Philosophy Poem) When Prayer Stops

When Prayer Stops

 

When the prayers we pray stop

Will it be from lack of air, or faith

When or will there be a time we stop

Think if no one had ever, prayed for us

Would we feel special, upset, or insulted

 

If Faith does indeed exists

Would Prayers not soon follow

Is Love not required, for a Soul to live

Can one have Faith if they posses no Love

Without Love a persons prayer is but dust

 

We live and we die by what we believe

Do we only believe that which we see

Or can Faith redirect a persons vision

Can we Believe though we are blind

Our end will be at the end of Prayer

Kushner says Abbas responsible for spike in violence since release of peace plan

After briefing UN Security Council members on proposal, Trump’s son-in-law says Palestinian leadership has long history of ‘inciting intifadas when they don’t get their way’

NEW YORK — US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, the architect of the US peace plan for the Middle East, on Thursday blamed Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas for a recent spike in violence in Israel and the West Bank.

“He does have a responsibility for it,” Kushner told reporters after briefing UN Security Council members on the plan that has been rejected by the Palestinians.

“He calls for days of rage in response and he said that even before he saw the plan,” Kushner added.

Three Palestinian attacks on Israeli soldiers and police officers took place within 12 hours on Thursday, leaving 14 service members wounded.

Two members of the Palestinian security services were also killed, at least one who was apparently mistaken for a terrorist by an Israeli sniper, as violence soared amid Palestinian anger at the US administration’s peace plan announced last week.

Palestinian leaders said the violence was an inevitable result of the plan’s pro-Israel bias, while Israeli officials accused the Palestinian Authority of encouraging the attacks.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a direct appeal to Abbas: “This won’t help you. Not the stabbings, not the ramming attacks, not the sniping attacks, and not the incitement… We will do everything necessary to guard our security, secure our borders, and guarantee our future. We will do this with you or without you.”

Kushner said Abbas had “rejected the plan before he even saw it.”

“I think that he was surprised with how good the plan was for the Palestinian people but he locked himself into a position before it came out and I don’t know why he did that,” he added.

“There is a long history of the Palestinian leadership paying the families of terrorists, inciting intifadas (uprisings) when they don’t get their way,” said Kushner.

“I just think the international community has grown very tired of that behavior,” he added.

Kushner presented the plan to Security Council members at a private lunch Thursday hosted by the US Mission to the United Nations.

Kushner described the two-hour-long talks with the Council’s 14 other members as “very constructive.”

Last chance for the Palestinians

Kushner warned that his plan “may be the last chance to resolve the situation,” because the rate of expansion of Israeli settlements may preclude a contiguous Palestinian state.

Right now, Kushner said, “it’s very, very difficult to have a contiguous state where you can drive from the top to the bottom,” but it is still possible.

He said the most constructive thing the Palestinians can do is to sit down with the Israelis and go over the plan “line by line.”

“If they would like to meet, we’re happy to do it, but we’re not going to chase them,” Kushner said.

His briefing comes as Palestinian supporters have circulated a draft UN resolution that would reject the plan, saying it violates international law and Security Council demands for a two-state solution based on borders before the 1967 Six Day War.

The resolution, obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press, could be put to a vote on Feb. 11 when Abbas is expected to address the Security Council and deliver his government’s objections to the Israeli-backed US peace plan. If a vote is held, the resolution is virtually certain to be vetoed by the United States.

The US plan, unveiled by Trump on Jan. 28, envisions a disjointed Palestinian state that turns over key parts of the West Bank to Israel, siding with Israel on key contentious issues including borders and the status of Jerusalem and Jewish settlements.

The Palestinians seek all of the West Bank and East Jerusalem — areas captured by Israel in 1967  — for an independent state and the removal of many of the more than 700,000 Israelis from these areas.

But under terms of the “peace vision” that Kushner worked on for nearly three years, all Israeli settlers would remain in place, and Israel would retain sovereignty over all of its settlements as well as the strategic Jordan Valley.

Dismissing the plan as “nonsense,” Abbas declared: “We say 1,000 no’s to the ‘Deal of the Century,’” using a nickname for Trump’s proposal.

Netanyahu, who stood beside Trump when the plan was announced, called it a “historic breakthrough” equal in significance to the country’s declaration of independence in 1948. He said it provided a green light for annexation of large parts of the occupied West Bank.

The proposed resolution, drafted by Indonesia and Tunisia, condemns recent Israeli statements calling for annexation “of areas of the occupied Palestinian territory” and stresses “the illegality” of any annexation.

It also reaffirms that all Israeli settlements and other measures “aimed at altering the demographic composition, character and status of the Palestinian territory occupied since 1967, including east Jerusalem, are illegal and imperil the viability of a two-state solution.”

The draft emphasizes the need to preserve “the territorial integrity, contiguity and unity of the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem.”

It reiterates the call to achieve lasting peace “without delay” based on UN resolutions dating back to 1967. It would also give the Security Council’s “unwavering support” to a two-state solution, with Israelis and Palestinians living side by side in peace based on pre-1967 borders.

The proposed resolution calls on all 193 UN member nations to comply with all relevant Security Council resolutions — and “not to render aid or assistance to illegal settlement activities” or recognize any actions or measures that might imply Israeli sovereignty over occupied Palestinian territories.

It would also express the council’s determination “to examine practical ways and means to secure the full implementation of its relevant resolutions, including enforcement measures under Chapter 7 of the (UN) Charter.”

Chapter 7 provides for both military and non-military enforcement measures.

(Philosophy Poem) Where Does Peace Live

Where Does Peace Live

 

Where does peace live

Such an odd thought to have

Strange words for any to say

Our peace, is it of the city, range or farm

Can there be peace if no objections are allowed

 

Is it true peace if no one ever raises their hands

Why is it that we humans question our own essence

What type of peace is it that we truly wish to come true

Peace, the dissolving of the pain that racks our mind and body

Or, is it the memories that takes all of our sleep each night

 

Yes indeed, just where is it that true peace does live

I seek the solitude of Montana’s great Western Skies

Or the beauty of the Pacific as the Dolphins play

Yet peace like truth must come from ones insides

Peace, I hope you find yours, while you are still alive

Saudi’s: Libya Govt. of National Accord Accepts UN Truce ‘with Conditions’

Libya Govt. of National Accord Accepts UN Truce ‘with Conditions’

Asharq Al-Awsat
The Libyan Government of National Accord (GNA) announced Friday it was ready to accept “with conditions” the United Nations-proposed truce in fighting around Tripoli on the occasion of the Eid al-Adha holiday.

The GNA said it was keen to “ease the suffering of the citizens and allow rescue workers to accomplish their mission”.

Therefore it said it “accepted a humanitarian truce for Eid al-Adha,” which will be celebrated in Libya on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

But it listed “four conditions”.

It said the ceasefire must be observed “in all combat zones, with a cessation of direct and indirect fire and movement of troops”.

It said the truce must include “a ban on flights and reconnaissance overflights across the entire (Libyan) airspace as well as a halt to flights from airbases”.

The UN had called on the Libyan National Army and Tripoli-based GNA to commit to a humanitarian truce by midnight on Friday.

The LNA has yet to comment on the truce proposal.

The LNA had launched an operation against Tripoli to cleanse it of criminal and terrorist gangs in April.

Over the past four months, 1,093 people have been killed in fighting, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

UN envoy Ghassan Salame has already called several times for humanitarian truces, without success.

In a video conference with the UN Security Council late last month, Salame warned against mounting tensions and called for a ceasefire for Eid al-Adha.

Palestinians Reject All Talks About ‘Autonomous Rule’

Shtayyeh Rejects Talks About Palestinians’ Autonomous Rule

Ramallah – Kifah Ziboun
Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammed Shtayyeh said any US plans or proposals on Palestinian autonomy were unacceptable.

“All the statements made by the US administration regarding the American plan to deal with the two-state solution and the talk of self-rule to ensure the security of Israel are rejected by President Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian leadership,” Shtayyeh said at the start of the Palestinian cabinet meeting on Monday.

He was responding to statements by US officials that their plan was based on Palestinian self-rule, instead of the two-state solution.

US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman said last week that the administration of US President Donald Trump was not working for a peaceful solution based on a two-state solution, but would offer a plan based on “Palestinian self-rule,” when Palestinians are capable of assuming such responsibility.

So far, the United States has not made its plan public, fearing its failure amid a Palestinian and Arab rejection. The US peace team, led by Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, ended a tour of the region a few days ago to rally support to the plan. But the delegation only heard Arab support for the Palestinians’ right to have an independent state.

The Palestinians say they will not even listen to the US plan as long as the United States does not back down from decisions about recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and the issues of refugees and Palestinian support.

Palestine: Authority to Halt All Agreements with Israel

Palestine: Authority to Halt All Agreements with Israel

Sunday, 4 August, 2019 – 09:00

Ramallah – Asharq Al-Awsat
The Palestinian Authority (PA) intends to implement its decision to halt all agreements with Israel soon, in a new escalation.

Member of Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Executive Committee, Saleh Raafat, said that a committee chaired by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has started continuous meetings to develop mechanisms to implement the decision taken more than a week ago.

The committee is scheduled to provide its recommendations and proposals over the matter to the Palestinian leadership soon.

Raafat said the Palestinian leadership is moving at all levels to confront the ongoing Israeli actions and attacks against Palestinians.

Last month, a few days after following an Israeli operation to demolish more than 100 Palestinian housing units in the eastern Gaza Strip, Abbas decided to halt agreements with Israel.

“There will be no peace, no security, and no stability in our region and the world without our people achieving their rights in full. No matter how much time it takes, the repugnant occupation is going to be defeated and our future state will be independent,” Abbas warned.

Raafat also indicated that authorities will call on UN and major powers to hold an international conference for the implementation of mechanisms of international legitimacy and enable the Palestinian people to embody their state according to international resolutions and legitimacy.

Raafat noted that Netanyahu’s far-right government wants to establish its occupation of the West Bank by annexing it to Israel and preventing Palestinians from founding their independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

He added that Israeli government, backed by the US administration, wants to eliminate the two-state solution and consolidate the Israeli occupation throughout the West Bank, particularly East Jerusalem.

Later, an official of the Palestinian committee responsible for halting agreements with Israel announced that at the first formal meeting, it had not taken any immediate decisions on the tasks entrusted to it.

The official, who asked not to be named, told the German news agency (DPA) that the committee reviewed the outline of its work. He pointed out that no decisions were taken immediately, including the decision on the future of security coordination with Israel.

He also noted that the committee will consider its options before taking any further steps.

The official indicated that Abbas confirmed the government’s steps to gradually disengage economically from Israel and look for Arab alternatives, especially with Jordan and Iraq.

Meanwhile, Palestinian Minister of Local Government Majdi Al-Saleh announced the ministry’s intention to grant building permits in Area “C” of the West Bank under Israel’s security and administrative control.

Saleh said that organizational planning schemes will be implemented in all areas, regardless of the Israeli classifications, indicating that licenses will be granted according to population growth.

The Minister pointed out that the European Union agreed to implement development projects in Area C, however, progress is prevented by the occupation. He reiterated that international law does not grant the occupation any legal status to regulate construction in the Palestinian territories.

According to the Oslo peace agreement, the West Bank is divided into three areas: Area A under security and administrative control of the Palestinian Authority, Area B under Israeli and Palestinian security control, while Area C comprises about 60 percent of the West Bank falls within Israeli security and administrative control.

A few days ago, Israel’s security cabinet unanimously approved construction permits for 715 housing units in Palestinians towns in Area C of the West Bank, the first such decision since 2016.

Israel is set to advance plans for at least 2,430 settler homes and authorize four new outposts as neighborhoods of existing settlements, Israeli Peace Now said on Friday.

Trusting The Government: U.S., Russia, China, North Korea, All The Same?

Trusting The Government: U.S., Russia, China, North Korea, All The Same?

 

I was born in the mid 1950’s and grew up watching Walter Cronkite deliver the evening news. Mr. Cronkite was by most considered to be the “most trusted man in America.” Whom is it that you totally trust the most in American news media or within the political realm today? With all the news outlets of today all trying to get you to watch or listen to them I find it difficult to put much trust in any of them. There are two main reasons for that, one is that each of these outlets are companies, they are ‘for profit’. Two is the consideration of where are they getting their information?

 

I am in my early 60’s now so during the past 50 years or so we here in the U.S. have been constantly told that we are the good guys and governments who are Communist are the bad guys. From all of the reading and studying that I have done over the years I really don’t doubt that these Communists governments are far less than friendly toward their own population nor to others. Communists seem to think military first and usually military only and it is a proven fact that very few people who are military oriented are very good public leaders. Military frame of mind and civilian frame of mind seldom seem to end up within the same person. Then again within the non-communists countries the people have to put up with politicians who seem to change their mind like farts in a breeze. Here in the U.S. we the people have learned a lot since the NSA murdered John and Bobby Kennedy back in the 60’s. When Nixon was President he illegally expanded the war in Vietnam into Laos and Cambodia. We had military personal who died there or were captured there that our government turned their back on as well as their families basically saying they must have deserted. When the U.S. officially left Vietnam Nixon got on TV and said there were no more POWs in southeast Asia, knowing very well that he was lying to the people. Reality comes down to the fact of truth or not the truth, trust or not being able to trust.

 

Now I am going to talk about current events here in the U.S. and this reality of trust or no trust. On a personal level can you trust a person on really serious matters when you absolutely know as a fact that they have lied to you many many occasions?  In the last 24-36 hours we have been hearing on the news that Iran shot down an unmanned U.S. spy drone. The early news strongly hinted that the drone was over Iranian land which by all forms of international law would have been a violation committed by the Americans and Iran would have had every right to shoot it down. By international law every country which borders a body of water has 12 miles sovereignty except for China’s Communists government who seems to want to claim at least a few thousand miles sovereignty but that is another story for other articles. Now the U.S. government is saying that the drone was 21 miles off of Iran’s coast and if this is true then basically Iran committed and act of war against the U.S. and the U.S. government would have the right to retaliate against Iran. The issue is, how can we trust our own government when they and especially our President is a habitual liar? President George W. Bush’s lies paved the way for us to start a war with Iraq. Personally I believe that he was just trying to show his Daddy that he could ‘one-up’ him and take out Saddam. Think of the cost of those lies in terms of thousands of people dead and about a trillion dollars of taxpayer money thrown into that bloodbath. Today’s news headline said that some of the Republicans in the Senate were upset that President Trump called off a bombing raid in Iran that would have started an all out war with them and their allies. Going to war with anyone should not be a partisan matter and going to war should not be in the hands of one person. If we are going to enter a war this war should be voted on and passed by at least 2/3 of the Congress and the Senate. This is not a computer game, many thousands of people will die. So, what is the truth on this matter, can you or I honestly trust anything that Mr. Trump says? Personally I don’t. Credibility is something that our leaders no longer have, their word is not good enough any more. If we go to war with Iran they have many allies including many sleeper cells within our own borders, many Americans on American land will die, life as we have always know it here in the States will be over. But, how the hell can we the people ever know if what we are being told is the truth, or just another lie.

 

Pakistani FM to AAWSAT: Islamic Summit to Avoid War

Pakistani FM to AAWSAT: Islamic Summit to Avoid War

Jeddah- Mohammed Al-Ayed
Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has affirmed that the summit of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) hosted by Saudi Arabia in attendance of Arab, Gulf, and Islamic leaders is an opportunity to address the tensed conditions in the region and avoid the breaking out of the war.

Amid the tension arising from the Iranian interventions in the region, Qureshi said that the war won’t be in the best interest of anyone, and won’t serve the region or the global economy. In fact, it would weaken the investment and increase the threat of terrorist activities, he added.

Despite all, Iran remains part of the region and can’t be removed and that’s why there should be a way to deal with it, Qureshi asserted.

As for the ballistic missiles launched by Houthis – Iran’s arm in Yemen – towards Makkah, Qureshi told Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper that any attack against the kingdom and the Two Holy Mosques is equivalent to an attack targeting Pakistan.

Qureshi stressed that his country will be ready in case any danger threatens the Saudi territories, lauding the continuous Saudi support to Pakistan.

Commenting on the attacks against energy sources and passages in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf, the Pakistani FM stated that these energy sources don’t only contribute to economy and trade development on the level of Saudi Arabia but the world overall.

Further, he considered that the Iranian intention to close the Strait of Hormuz would escalate regional crises — Qureshi urged Iran to desist from escalation and to open up to diplomacy because extremist means would not be constructive.

Qureshi noted that the visit of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense, to Pakistan brought several achievements to both countries, adding that Saudi Arabia and Pakistan have key roles in the Islamic world that could boost stability and security in the region.

US publishes first map showing Golan as Israeli territory

US publishes first map showing Golan as Israeli territory

Move comes 3 weeks after Trump recognizes Israeli sovereignty over Heights; Mideast envoy Greenblatt tweets picture of the map that also refers to West Bank as Israeli-occupied

The US has for the first time published a map showing the Golan Heights as Israeli territory, three weeks after President Donald Trump recognized Israeli sovereignty over the strategic plateau.

US Mideast envoy Jason Greenblatt tweeted a picture of the map on Tuesday, saying: “Welcome to the newest addition of our international maps system.”

The map shows the 1974 ceasefire line between Israel and Syria as a permanent border, whereas the border with Lebanon continues to be demarcated as the 1949 armistice line.

The map also notes that the West Bank is Israeli-occupied, with its final status to be determined in peace talks.

And it notes that while the US recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in 2017, it does not take a position on the boundaries of the holy city, which is also claimed by the Palestinians as the capital of a future state.

Welcome to the newest addition of our international maps system after @POTUS issued a proclamation recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights

2,008 people are talking about this

However, while the map was updated, text attached to the Israel entry in the latest CIA world factbook, which included the map, continued to call East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights “Israeli occupied.”

Trump’s formal recognition of Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan sparked widespread international condemnation. The announcement in late March was a major shift in American policy and gave Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a needed political boost ahead of April elections.

Israel captured the strategic plateau from Syria in the 1967 Six Day War and in 1981 effectively annexed the area, in a move never recognized by the rest of international community, which considers the Golan Heights to be occupied Syrian territory.

The map was published with the US indicating it may also be on board with Israel annexing West Bank settlements.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday said he did not believe Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s pre-election talk of extending Israeli sovereignty to all West Bank settlements would hurt the Trump administration’s long-gestating peace plan.

His comments would appear to indicate that the US plan does not provide for Palestinian statehood, or even for Palestinian control of substantive contiguous territory in the West Bank.

Asked during a CNN interview by anchor Jake Tapper whether he thought Netanyahu “vowing to annex the West Bank” could hurt the US proposal, Pompeo answered “I don’t.”

“I think that the vision that we’ll lay out is going to represent a significant change from the model that’s been used,” he added.

“We’ve had a lot of ideas for 40 years. They did not deliver peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians,” Pompeo said. “Our idea is to put forward a vision that has ideas that are new, that are different, that are unique, that tries to reframe and reshape what’s been an intractable problem.”

He said the Trump administration wanted “a better life” for both Israelis and Palestinians.

In interviews days before the elections, Netanyahu said he intended to gradually apply Israeli law to all settlements, and that he hoped he could do so with the agreement of the United States.

On Tuesday, a coalition of more than a dozen conservative groups, most of them Jewish, sent a letter to Trump tacitly asking him to respect a potential Israeli annexation of West Bank settlements.

The letter comes in response to a coalition of centrist and liberal groups who last week urged Trump not to recognize a potential Israeli West Bank annexation.

We’re Cracking Apart From The Inside, With Missiles Aimed At Our Back

 

I’m sorry, but I don’t exactly like the Title either. Here in our Country we are acting like it is back in the 20’s or something ignorant like that. We have our HollyWood and our Politics, the never-ending battle between the Dems and the GOP and we pick Our Country apart. We have several outside State Players and other well-funded hate groups who are actually in the Chess Possession to make this play. Folks, I hope they do not push the ‘ignite’ button. This would be the end of the world as we all know it all because of a couple of dozen people from around whom have some Power in this world who hate us and hate everything’ the West’ stands for. Attacking us from the inside while we bicker among ourselves is a sure Cancer to our Cells.

 

Our current Government has weakened Us with our long-standing Allies and gotten off to a bad start with several other ‘not so friendly States.’ There is always the issue of other ‘unfriendliness’ such as Hezbollah, Hamas and many others. I pray for our Children, and Theirs. Hate, it is such a disgusting thing when we direct it at each other. Our System has many errors within it but it could be very much better. We need to address these things quickly before there is no tomorrow in which to be concerned about.
