September 5, 2018: Israel Carries Out New Strike As Idlib Battle Looms

On September 4, Israel carried out a strike on targets in the provinces of Tartus and Hama, according to the Syrian state media. The Syrian Air Defense Forces intercepted at least five missiles. However, the rest of them hit a target in the area of Masyaf in the Hama countryside.

Pro-Israeli sources described the target as an Iranian weapons depot. However, no visual confirmation to confirm this claim was provided. According to the news agency SANA, at least one person was killed and 12 others were injured as a result of the attack. No further details were revealed.
Meanwhile, the Israeli military announced that it has carried out over 200 strikes on Iranian targets in Syria over the past year.

The September 4 Israeli strike came on the same day when the Syrian Air Fore increased number of airstrikes on terrorist targets – mostly Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra) and the Turkistan Islamic Party – in southern and southwestern Idlib. According to different sources, about 30-60 strikes were carried out. Pro-militant sources also claimed that the Russian Aerospace Forces were involved.
Earlier, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem said that US threats to strike the war-torn country will not halt the liberation of Idlib.

What V. S. Naipaul Taught Me about Posturing By P. Kishore Saval

Readers rightly praise V. S. Naipaul’s incandescent prose, his narrative power, and his bracing sense of humor. But for me his art also had another value: Naipaul taught me the value of honesty over posturing. We posture when we pretend to have feelings and opinions that we do not really have. The emotional honesty of art can shatter one’s false persona, and the result is never an unmixed pleasure. T. S. Eliot said of the French novelist Stendhal that some of his scenes “are a terrible humiliation to read, in the understanding of feelings, and human illusions of feeling, that they force upon the reader.” I cannot imagine a better description of what Naipaul’s work does for me: it offers a difficult joy that is often not far from humiliation. In Naipaul’s writing I discover that the noble feelings I frequently pretend to have are only illusions.

Naipaul’s books usually describe a protagonist’s journey of self-discovery as an unflattering process in which he learns unwillingly to discard self-protective lies. In the deeply autobiographical novel, The Enigma of Arrival, Naipaul’s narrator describes the early efforts of a young Trinidadian-Indian to establish himself as a writer. Naipaul’s narrator draws upon his own travel experiences as a young man in the journey from his native Trinidad to England. He tries his best to imitate the cosmopolitan British writers that he knows: Evelyn Waugh, Aldous Huxley, and others. He begins to write a short story called “Gala Night,” based on experiences he had one evening aboard the ship that took him from New York to Southampton. The narrator imagines himself to be witty, urbane, and knowing.

Yet Naipaul’s narrator continually finds himself leaving out experiences too painful and unflattering to write about. The “topic of race,” he says, “formed no part of ‘Gala Night.’ It was too close to my disturbance, my vulnerability, the separation of my two selves. That was not the kind of personality the writer wished to assume; that was not the material he dealt in.”

In drawing upon his own travel experiences, the narrator knows that he is “editing out” events from his memory: “Editing out the airport taxi driver who had overcharged me—the humiliation had been too great.” Editing out the moment he had been asked to share a cabin with a black passenger. The black passenger was offended at being asked to share a room with an Indian: “It’s because I’m colored,” he said, “that you’re putting me with him.” The narrator remembers that he was ashamed: “I was ashamed that, with all my aspirations, with all that I had put into this adventure, this was all that people saw in me—so far from the way I thought of myself, so far from what I wanted for myself.”

Insane USA Support for al Qaeda in Syria & Tucker Carlson Exposes the Jewish Media Coverup of Harvey Weinstein!

Today Dr. Duke and Dr. Slattery talked about the hijacking of Donald Trump’s foreign policy by the Jewish neocon establishment bent on preventing Syrian President Assad from defeating ISIS.
They also talk about a segment on Tucker Carlson’s show last night regarding the NBC suppresion of investigative reporting by Ronan Farrow on the Harvey Weinstein scandal. Tucker named a list of Jews involved in the cover-up, without actually pointing out that they are Jewish. But Dr. Duke added that bit of information. You’re welcome, Mr. Carlson!

New book by Lukianoff and Haidt on the fragility of the young

Cooling my heels at the airport, I call your attention to a new book by Greg Lukianoff, president and CEO of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) and Jonathan Haidt, a social psychologist at New York University. The book: The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas are Setting Up a Generation for Failure. (That jawbreaker of a title was obviously taken from Allan Bloom’s surprising 1987 bestseller,The Closing of the American Mind: How Higher Education Has Failed Democracy and Impoverished the Souls of Today’s Students).
The screenshot below will take you to the new book’s Amazon site:

You’ll know their views from their 2015 Atlantic piece with the same title, but they’ve expanded and revised it, as you can see from the CBS News video below. In the meantime, the New York Times has, surprisingly, given the book a good review along with a related book by William Egginton:

Putin’s Novichok assassins identified. Pictured smiling, walking UK streets (Video)

UK prosecutors have cracked the Novichok poisoning hoax by identifying two Russian they suspect of poisoning Sergei and Yulia Skripal as, Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov.
The two are being charged with the attempted murder of the ex-double agent and his daughter along with a police officer.
British police stated that the suspects (both around 40 years old) were traveling on authentic Russian passports and had arrived in the UK days before the poisoning incident.
The UK’s head of Counter Terrorism policing, Neil Basu, said the two men were traveling under aliases.
Basu noted that traces of the lethal and deadly Novichok poison were found in the London hotel room where the two men had stayed from March 2 and up until March 4…but no need for alarm as both Russian men, and everyone who had stayed in the contaminated room thereafter, and all hotel staff, were only exposed levels of the lethal and deadly Novichok that were of no cause for concern.
Basu said…
“Tests were carried out in the hotel room where the suspects had stayed. Two swabs showed contamination of Novichok of levels below that which would cause concern for public health.”
Asked if the suspects were ‘Russian agents’, the Basu did not directly answer, appealing to the worldwide public to help identify the two men. “We would like to hear from anyone who knows them,” Basu said.
Russian authorities were quick to state that the names of the “Russian suspects” allegedly connected to the Skripal poisoning as published by UK, do not mean anything to Moscow.

Bland ‘Finale’ by Steve Sailer

Operation Finale is a decently crafted, reasonably accurate retelling of the kidnapping from Argentina of Adolf Eichmann (played by Sir Ben Kingsley), the most notorious supervisor of the Holocaust still on the loose in 1960, by Israeli Mossad operatives (led by a secret agent portrayed by Oscar Isaac).
Unfortunately, the film never quite takes flight. That’s why Operation Finale was dumped on sunburned audiences on Labor Day Weekend, the notorious Idiocracy slot on the calendar for movies that the studio just wants to forget about. This is the umpteenth film in which Isaac, who had long been envisioned by Hollywood as the new Al Pacino, doesn’t yet make it through the formality of becoming a major movie star.
The Holocaust, perhaps the most exhaustively documented event in history, has been mined thoroughly for cinematic stories. So perhaps what’s left to be filmed tends to be less than scintillating, such as the Eichmann abduction. The Mossad team leader (played well by Nick Kroll) admitted that this operation was “one of the easiest missions we did.” Director Chris Weitz’s scrupulousness about retelling what actually happened in Buenos Aires without too much invention to heighten the tension keeps it an only mildly exciting thriller.
Still, Operation Finale is a perfectly okay film, although the more interesting aspects of the Eichmann story happened before and after the extraction from Buenos Aires that takes up most of the movie.
Hunting down genocidal war criminals wasn’t invented by the Israelis.

Hitler supposedly scoffed in August 1939: “Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?” Yet Armenian patriots in the 1920s had contrived to make as memorable as possible their Operation Nemesis conspiracy in which they assassinated many of the perpetrators of the Ottoman Empire’s 1915 genocide of the Armenians.

For example, in 1921 an Armenian volunteer who had lost 85 relatives in the massacre gunned down former grand vizier Talaat Pasha in Berlin. As planned, he dropped his weapon and immediately surrendered to the police. The German jury deliberated for only one hour before acquitting him.

Jews Love A Witch Hunt! By Brother Nathanael Kapner

“IT’S A WATERGATE MOMENT,” barfed the stinking-rich Jew, Senator Richard Blumenthal, just a few days ago.
The Yid was yelping to his fellow hymie, Wolf Blitzberg of Jew-owned CNN regarding a supposed obstruction of justice ploy by President Trump to allegedly subvert Rosenstein’s and Mueller’s ‘witch hunt.’

Sheeny Schumer chimed in calling the president, “an un-indicted co-conspirator of a federal crime,” and demanding the appointment of Kavanaugh to the highest bench be “postponed” due to Trump’s pending “legal jeopardy.”

This is more Jew vomit that incessantly fouls “our democracy.”
Are we so stupid to fall for Jewish tricks?
It really amounts to, “We Jews hereby pronounce the Executive Branch to be null and voidbecause our gal Hillary didn’t get in.”

IT’S A POLITICAL WITCH HUNT in which the Jews are exploiting “Rosenstein & Mueller” and their so-called ‘foreign influence investigation’— for the congressional yids’ own crooked inquisition.

For with bulbous-eyed Adam Schiff spewing political spit to his fellow Jew, Jacob Tapper, with, “let’s not blow it” …we won’t impeach until “all the evidence comes in…” what we get is spiders weaving their webs to advance the tribe’s entrapment.

The fix is in, and the “fixer” isn’t Cohen, it’s Jews who run the on-going undertaking to take down the once Christian nation of America.

Just Boycott It: Nike Makes Anti-White Colin Kaepernick the Face of Its 30th Anniversary "Just Do It" Campaign

Previously on SBPDL: Just Do it! What The Nike Riots Tell Us

corporation whose market value rests on foreign cheap labor has now made the face of its upcoming 30th anniversary Just Do It campaign an anti-white, anti-police, anti-American black athlete. [Nike Launches Ad Campaign Starring Colin Kaepernick, Zero Hedge, 9-3-18]:

In a move that will likely infuriate president Trump, and/or lead to a sharp decline in Air Max sales, on Monday afternoon Nike and Colin Kaepernick unveiled a new ad campaign featuring the controversial former NFL quarterback as part of the company’s 30th anniversary "Just Do It" ad campaign. 
The entire power structure in America is on Colin Kaepernick's side,  yet we must believe he is a victim. 
The image, which Kaepernick tweeted out, shows a black-and-white closeup of the quarterback’s face and the words, “Believe in something. Even it if it means sacrificing everything. Just do it.” 
According to ESPN, Kaepernick - who is suing NFL owners for allegedly colluding to keep him out of the league - is one of the faces of a new Nike campaign meant to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the brand's iconic "Just Do It" motto. It also adds that while Nike signed Kaepernick in 2011 and kept him on its endorsement roster over the years, the company had not used him in the past two years. 
“We believe Colin is one of the most inspirational athletes of this generation, who has leveraged the power of sport to help move the world forward,” Nike V.P. of brand in North America Gino Fisanotti told ESPN. 
Perhaps, but for now Kaepernick is entering a second NFL season without a team and has an active collusion grievance against the NFL. That case cleared a hurdle last week with the league’s request to dismiss the grievance was rejected. A trial hearing that requires testimony from NFL owners could happen at some point in the future. 
“We wanted to energize its meaning and introduce ‘Just Do It’ to a new generation of athletes,” Fisanotti told ESPN. 
Kaepernick became a household name in August of 2016 when he began kneeling in what he said was protest of racial injustice during the national anthem, provoking a major backlash by the president, and eventually NFL fans.  The protests during the national anthem, soon embraced by other players too, raised the ire of some NFL fans and U.S. President Donald Trump. The result was a steep dropoff in NFL viewership in 2017.

Burn baby Burn! Americans all over the country are responding the Nike endorsing kneeler Colin Kaepernick. I don’t know who’s in charge of endorsements at Nike, but endorsing Kaepernick is about as popular as endorsing Satan, unless of course you are an anti-American progressive. Think of the market that will be left for Nike and their China slave labor made shoes. Arrogant, trust fund baby progressives who have about as much athletic skill as a rock.

Americans are burning their Nike sportswear (made with slave labor in China)

The Constitutional Thought of Thomas Jefferson By Kevin R.C. Gutzman

A review of The Constitutional Thought of Thomas Jefferson by David N. Mayer (University of Virginia Press, 1994).

Thomas Jefferson’s reputation is that of a great thinker. He is popularly (and I believe wrongly, but that is a different matter) believed to have been the greatest thinker among American’s Revolutionaries. It is as a writer and as an unofficial pontifex rei publici that Jefferson is remembered, as the man who sat on Monticello and defined American liberalism. Yet, despite the perennial attention to the thought of the Revolutionary generation, generations elapsed between the last book-length study of Jefferson’s constitutional thought and David N. Mayer’s The Constitutional Thought of Thomas Jefferson.

Mayer’s book is, first of all, a very nice physical artifact. Secondly, it is organized in a perfectly reasonable way. Mayer avoids most anachronistic temptations. There is little here about Jefferson and race, nothing at all about Jefferson and women. There is, though, a preoccupation with libertarian implications of Jefferson’s constitutional thought. Among other manifestations, this leads to inclusion of a chapter on Jefferson and the Bill of Rights. I would quibble with inclusion of such a chapter. Jefferson had nothing to do with drafting the first ten amendments to the federal constitution, and the idea that he persuaded James Madison of its necessity seems to me to be quite a stretch. In any event, his (and his contemporaries’) Mew was that those amendments’ sweep was only a small fraction of that which they have been given today. To give the space of one out of ten chapters to this subject is thus, alas, anachronistic.

Mayer also falls into the trap of drawing conclusions where there is not adequate evidence. We are told we can assume that Jefferson had the same views as his contemporaries on some questions, for example, Why? Ipse dixit. One would prefer a little more circumspection in this regard. (One would also note that in most books of this type, one notes a lack of circumspection; seldom does an intellectual historian say he does not know what his subject thought, although he often/usu-ally cannot.)

Those caveats are perhaps more in the mode of generalizable objections to the tendency in the field at large that about this book specifically. This book is both a good introduction to its topic and a nice primer on the constitutional problems of the Revolutionary and Early Republic periods. Jefferson was, after all, at the center of the major issues of his era. Indeed, many of them—judicial review and federalism, for example (to each of which Mayer devotes a whole chapter)—became burning issues largely because Jefferson chose to make them such.

Rape and Murder in the Heartland

Editor’s note: This is a scanned version of a very prescient article written in 2001 by Nelson Rosit about the 1999 murder of Cally Jo Larson, a case that is sadly similar to the recent case of Mollie Tibbetts. Obvoiusly, this has been going on for a long time. As Rosit notes, anticipating the findings of sociologist Robert Putnam (2007), the result is less trust and less involvement with the community. He also lays the blame ultimate on your hostile elites: “The political and economic elites have told these small Midwestern towns that they have no choice but to become part of the global system or die; while the mass media continually promotes the idea of an inescapable multiracial, multicultural future for America that will be better for everyone.” As now, the citizens of Waseca did not mention race or immigration status in their comments. But because Donald Trump is president and because race has come to dominate all our discussions, it has been raised in the case of Mollie Tibbetts, with inevitable backlash from the mainstream media (and Tibbetts’s family). I suppose that’s progress, but obviously we still have a long way to go before Americans can rightly be outraged by events like the rapes and murders of Cally Jo and Mollie. And do what needs to be done.

Color Me Raped by David Cole

When I was a child, one of the many life lessons my parents taught me is that it’s easy to complain, but if possible, one should strive to be constructive and add something positive to a situation beyond merely pointing out what’s wrong. No one likes a negative nudnik (funny enough, Negative Nudnik was the original title of Elie Wiesel’s Night). Last week I complained about the fact that the U.S. Department of Justice flatly refuses to release detailed interracial rape statistics. I am, on principle, against withholding data. And I’m especially against a government agency withholding data from the public in order to please the social justice mavens on the left.
My overall point was, the media is always lightning-quick to tell people of color how much “danger” they face from white women, but white women are prevented from seeing any facts or figures regarding how much danger (scare quotes oddly absent there) they face from people of color.
But still, in the end, all I was doing was bitching about something that isn’t there. I was shouting at a hole for being hollow, which is rarely productive.
So this week, as a supplement of sorts to last week’s column, I want to be a bit more constructive and analyze an academic study that, while a little old, is nevertheless the best (and perhaps last) scholarly examination of exactly the kind of thing the DOJ doesn’t want us to be able to study today.
“The Racial Patterning of Rape” could not be published in “the current year.” Not just because the required statistics are unavailable, but also because, in a time when even the suggestion that students should be free to choose their own Halloween costumes can get respected academics fired by angry black mobs from our most prestigious college campuses, no university-affiliated journal would ever allow such a tome to see the light of day (unless the entire editorial board was itching to find new jobs). “The Racial Patterning of Rape” appeared in the September 1990 edition of Social Forces, the quarterly, peer-reviewed academic journal of social science published by Oxford University Press in association with the Department of Sociology at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

Sweden’s Anti-Immigration Party Set For Record Wins As Election Days Away

A surge in populism has sent Sweden’s far-right Sweden Democrats (SD) Party surging in the polls leading up to the country’s September 9 election – placing them neck and neck with the Moderate party. The current ruling party, the Swedish Social Democrats (S), however, remain strongly in the lead.
Perhaps dozens of cars torched by “misguided youths”, rapes, swiming pool sex assaultsnews crew attacks, grenade attacks and government funded sex courses to teach migrants that 14 is just too young, aren’t sitting well with Swedes who may regret following their “feminist” government in welcoming over 400,000 people from countries and cultures not exactly known for their embrace of feminism.
What’s more, Sweden’s Social Democrats have been criticized by “average wage-earners, pensioners and first-time voters” who now accuse Prime Minister Stefan Lofven of imperiling the country’s cherished welfare state by welcoming a flood of asylum seekers who are seen “as an economic and cultural threat,” according to Stockholm University sociology professor Jens Rydgren.
“The balance of power has shifted, because of the EU, globalisation and digitalisation, and the Social Democrats are no longer able to keep their promises,” Sweden’s paper of reference Dagens Nyheter wrote recently. –AFP via France 24
A poll by Sifo has the Sweden Democrats, led by Jimmie Åkesson, ahead of the Moderates by 1 point, while Ipsos has the Moderates ahead by the same amount.
Prime Minister Stefan Lofven’s Social Democrats, who have dominated Swedish politics since the 1930s, will remain the biggest party in the country but likely with a record low score, polls suggest.
The far-right Sweden Democrats (SD) are heading to make the most gains and come in a close second, followed by the conservative Moderates. -AFP

Monsanto Forced to Pay Man $289 Million in Cancer Case

The profit-hungry agri-giant often called “the evil empire” has been slapped for poisoning a school groundskeeper who used their glyphosate-based weed killers, and now, the behemoth is looking at more than 5,000 similar lawsuits. Glyphosate has recently been confirmed in oat breakfast cereals and bars, yet the FDA continues to remain silent about its dangers even while other countries ban Monsanto products.
By S.T. Patrick
Sometimes David really does defeat Goliath. A California jury this month found that Monsanto’s glyphosate-based weed killers like Roundup caused the cancer of school groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson. As a result of the decision, Monsanto has been ordered to pay Johnson $289 million in damages. Johnson may be only the first victorious David, as Monsanto now faces over 5,000 similar lawsuits across the United States.
Despite a Monsanto spokesman arguing that “more than 800 scientific studies and reviews . . . support the fact that glyphosate does not cause cancer and did not cause Mr. Johnson’s cancer,” the jury awarded damages to Johnson, whose attorney explained that, for the first time, jurors were privy to internal company documents “proving that Monsanto has known for decades that glyphosate and specifically Roundup could cause cancer.”
The cancer arm of the World Health Organization in 2015 had determined that glyphosate is “probably carcinogenic to humans.”

Study results published just days after the Johnson news broke revealed that some oat breakfast cereals and snack bars marketed toward children are laced with glyphosate. Of the 45 products containing oats tested by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), 43 contained traces of glyphosate and 31 exceeded the EWG’s child-protective daily exposure benchmark of 160 ppb.
EWG reports the FDA is aware of the dangers from glyphosates but remaining silent: “In April, internal emails obtained by the nonprofit US Right to Know revealed that the Food and Drug Administration has been testing food for glyphosate for two years and has found ‘a fair amount,’ but the FDA has not released its findings.”

Nigeria: “Traditional Leader Revokes Voodoo Curses” to Protect African Invaders in Europe

Oba Ewuare II, the traditional ruler of the Kingdom of Benin in Edo State in southern Nigeria, has ordered the revoking of all “curses placed on victims of human trafficking and to curse human traffickers instead” in order to “protect vulnerable migrants” seeking to invade Europe.
News of the “curse lifting” was carried in the International Organization for Migration’s (IOM) report of the latest developments in the ongoing saga of the Nigerian invasion of Europe, titled “Cursed or Blessed? Nigerian Victims Of Trafficking Can Finally Break The Oath.”

NYT: The “Religion of Whiteness” is a Threat to World Peace by Jared Taylor

Yet another Asian lashes out at the West.
The New York Times, has become the home for spiteful attacks on whites. On August 2, the paper defended elevating Sarah Jeong to its editorial board despite her tweets about “dumbass fu**ing white people” and looking forward to their extinction. Today, not even one month later, the Times has published yet another Asian who warns that whiteness is “a suicide cult” and a horrifying threat to world peace.
Miss Jeong’s appointment memorialized the double standard: Disrespect for protected classes is vile but contempt for whites is fine. Today’s article, by a sub-continental Indian named Pankaj Mishra, sets forth another Times-approved principle: Any measure whites take to preserve their nations or their traditions menaces the entire world.

Mr. Mishra’s article, called “The Religion of Whiteness Becomes a Suicide Cult,” pours particular scorn on the whites who live in what he calls “the Anglosphere:” Britain, Canada, Australia, and the United States. This is an ungrateful choice: Mr. Mishra is a novelist and essayist in the language of the Anglosphere, and is a recipient of the Windham-Campbell Literature Prize from Yale, worth $150,000 and perhaps the richest prize of its kind in the world.

Mr. Mishra begins by attacking the softest possible target: an 18th century Australian no one has heard of named Charles Henry Pearson who wrote about the need to make sure “the higher races” defend against dispossession by the “black and yellow races.” Today it’s easy to spit on men like Pearson and their racial hierarchies, but how could they possibly have been egalitarians? Europeans invented and ruled the modern world, with no rival in sight. Would the Chinese or Mr. Mishra’s own Indians have been more modest if they had achieved half of what whites did?

But Charles Pearson just sets the stage for today’s “white supremacist,” Donald Trump. Mr. Mishra claims that the “Anglosphere” went on to “jointly forge an identity geopolitics of the ‘higher races,’ ” and that: “today it has reached its final and most desperate phase, with existential fears about endangered white power feverishly circulating . . . .” And what is the evidence of this fevered state? President Trump was not uniformly reviled when he said in a speech, “The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive.” Merely to ask whether the West can survive—not to rule or dominate, merely to survive—is to rekindle white supremacy and imperialist arrogance.

Trump’s Cruel Decision to End UNRWA Funding By Daniel Larison

Geoffrey Aronson comments on the Trump administration’s cruel and unjustified decision to cut off aid for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA):
The fog enveloping Trump’s deal of the century is clearing, revealing a U.S.-led effort to simply remove Palestinians from the diplomatic and humanitarian equation. This policy is far more ambitious than Obama’s ill-famed preference to “lead from behind.” But rather than solve the issue, Trump is implementing a destructive and destabilizing plan to simply wish the Palestine problem away.
The Trump administration’s hostility to the Palestinian people has been impossible to miss, and this latest decision shows just how intense and obnoxious that hostility is. Whatever flaws the UNRWA may have, slashing its funding is a senseless and destructive act. It is a heavy-handed attempt to force Palestinians to submit to even more concessions as part of a bogus “peace” plan, and like the administration’s other policies of collective punishment it will just lead to increased resistance and resentment. Cutting this funding ensures that the very serious humanitarian crisis in Gaza will get worse, and it will worsen condition for Palestinian civilians everywhere else. There is no excuse for cutting off aid to stateless and displaced people, and that is especially true when that aid has been a mainstay of U.S. policy for decades. No U.S. interests are served by starving an aid agency of resources and causing millions of innocent civilians to suffer needlessly.
The Palestinian civilian population and neighboring countries that have taken in Palestinian refugees will be the ones most adversely affected by the decision:
Adnan Abu Hasna, a spokesman for UNRWA in Gaza, told a local radio station that if funds to the organization were suddenly stopped, the entire education system would be in danger of collapsing, with only enough money to last through September.
Hit particularly hard would be Jordan, where the 2 million Palestinian refugees — a fifth of the country’s population — use UNRWA’s services. Providing them all health care, education and shelter would fall to the cash-strapped Jordanian government.
The effects of this decision will be disastrous, and they will occur very soon if other funding is not found to fill the gap:
Gunness, the agency’s spokesman, told Al Jazeera that if UNRWA didn’t receive emergency cash injection in the next 30 days, when its funds are expected to run dry, a “doomsday scenario” could unfold.
“Let there be no mistake; this decision is likely to have a devastating impact on the lives of 526,000 children who receive a daily education from UNRWA; 3.5 million sick people who come to our clinics for medical care; 1.7 million food insecure people who receive assistance from us, and tens of thousands of vulnerable women, children and disabled refugees who come to us.
“If we don’t fill a funding gap of $217m very quickly, they are all likely to suffer”.

On the Death of a Civic Nationalist Icon

John McCain, who finally passed away after his battle with brain cancer, represents what Z.O.G. considers the supreme Civic Nationalist W.A.S.P., who “touched almost all the bases” of the interests of the present government of the United States.
In watching the praise of John McCain on the different television networks during the morning following his passing, including Fox News, I got the impression that it was an ode to Civic Nationalism. The mulatto and white newscasters gushed forth in praise of a man who was a Moderate Republican, one who had been friends with Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York, Sen. Lieberman of Conn., Ted Kennedy of Mass., Barack Obama and others.
He was totally deracinated, and like Mitt Romney who was thrilled when one of his married sons or daughters adopted a black child to add to the family portraits so as to show he isn’t racist, the McCain family adopted a brown skinned girl from Bangladesh to demonstrate their belief in the idea that “there’s only one race, the human race,” and among other pictures of the life and times of McCain shown by the news reports honoring his life was the photo of that girl amidst the couple’s other naturally born children.
In the tradition of Sen. Scoop Jackson of Washington, McCain was totally pro-Israel and, of course, very anti-Russian. He seemed to have a real hatred of Vladimir Putin during his government service and was ready to go to war over Russia’s takeover of the Crimea, which had involved a democratic vote by the residents of the area in favor of such a change. He also supported the U.S. instigated coup in Ukraine which caused the democratically elected, pro-Russian president to have to flee the country and be replaced by a pro-Western one who is anti-Russian, and this really was the cause of the resulting civil war in the east of that country which has remained pro-Russian in sentiment.
He faithfully maintained his belief in the good intentions of the Z.O.G. controlled system, pushing the idea that despite the massive demographic changes which have radically reduced the white portion of the population since the passage of the Immigration Bill of 1965 that all was fine and in order in this Propositional Nation.
