  • So, I am in the process of taking an Arab/Israeli conflict class, and the more I think about it, the more I wish I could solve all of this death and destruction in the middle east. In this discussion post, I would like to stay on the Arab – Israeli conflict; primarily those that arose due to Israel becoming a state. (I.e. – The Palestinian refugee problem). Comment your thoughts, and how you think we may could solve all of this conflict across the world.

  • “The Jews of Russia who worked for the destruction of monarchy found themselves finally in the grips of a brutal religious persecution which hit them harder than the Christians.  Their most brilliant exponents among the Communists were exiled, slaughtered, or assassinated in exile.  The fate of Trotzki [sic] is symbolic for Russian Jewry.” – Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn, aka Francis Stewart Campbell, Menace of the Herd or Procrustes at Large
