Israel and Iran’s Policy

In his book, Of Africa, Wole Shoyinka argued on a new currency for enlightenment and development. According to him, some tribes and people-group have shown, in spite of tangible developments, that they have not outgrown their base instincts. Among his anecdotal references are Africans willingness to forge peace in the face of great oppression. Nelson Mandela referred to this as Ubuntu–human kindness. Netanyahu has shown that his claims to the mother of all religion–Judaism, has afforded him no high above his base instincts.

For the sake of argument, what would Netanyahu have US, France, Germany, China, Russia and United Kingdom do if negotiations with Iran fail–if Iran refuses to stop its nuclear development? Does Netanyahu believe US could hold the coalition against Iran together indefinitely? Does Netanyahu want to see a dismembered Iran joining the ungovernable land masses in Middle East? How much more money, blood and sweat would Netanyahu requests from America to pursue the endless defense of arrogance and belligerency? Does Netanyahu understand the demise of Empires, from antiquity to the present, have coincided with unnecessary ambitions and overstretched resources?

Equally, for the sake of argument, what would Iran do with military grade nuclear weaponry that North Korea, Pakistan, India and others have not done that makes Iran’s possession existential?

Saber-rattling is okay, for as long as it does not define the real. Quit this show of shame!

SOTUS–Stop this Dance of Shame

Thurgood Marshall, the late Supreme Court Justice, was reported to have frowned against the notoriety gained by Martin Luther King (MLK) over his contributions to Civil Rights and advancing the rights of blacks in the US.  According to the report, Marshall thought his own contributions were underplayed while MLK’s was overplayed. He was frustrated that he wasn’t accorded more attention. The nine members of the Supreme Court are humans, with all their failings and cravings.  Each of these folks seeks attention and notoriety created by political wrangling over the ACA–to them, the attention is welcomed rather than discouraged.  It’s easy to turn the ACA into legal abstractions, forgetting about ordinary men and women struggling with life and health challenges that are directly impacted by the law.  It’s time these folks in black robes understand that Americans know the King is Naked!
