Factors including China's military modernization, India-Pakistan rivalry and America's "Pacific pivot" all combined to help Asia raise military spending in 2013. The US weapons industry appears to be the main beneficiary, and continuing tensions over North Korea's nuclear program and territorial disputes suggest the upward trajectory is unlikely to slow anytime soon. - John Feffer

 Fri, 11 Apr 2014 19:20:57 +0300 In One Word: Poof!
POOR JOHN Kerry. This week he emitted a sound that was more expressive than pages of diplomatic babble.
 Thu, 10 Apr 2014 20:57:10 +0300 The danger of peace Has passed!
“The danger of peace
Has passed!”
A senior Likud member
Happily declared,
According to the media.

Netanyahu has won.
More such victories,
And we are lost.
 Fri, 04 Apr 2014 15:49:07 +0300 The Monster on the Hill
THERE IS nothing better than a scandal every week. A juicy scandal excites people, engages the media, takes our minds off matters like war and peace, occupation and apartheid. Like panem et circenses (bread and entertainment) in ancient Rome.
 Fri, 04 Apr 2014 00:08:58 +0300 Both aspirations Must be addressed
The Israelis wait
For the release
Of Pollard.

The Palestinians
Marwan Barghouti.

In order to move
Towards peace,
Both aspirations
Must be addressed.

NEW ZEALAND HAS decided to change its flag. This was only briefly mentioned in the media here. But it is a significant example for us.

The old flag is based on the British one, the Union Jack, which signifies the...

 Thu, 27 Mar 2014 23:03:49 +0530 Says Foreign Minister Lieberman
“The Palestinian appeal
To the Human Rights Council
Undermines trust
And endangers the negotiations!”
Says Foreign Minister Lieberman.

Not so
The killing of three
Palestinians in Jenin.
Nor settlement extension.
Nor shooting at fishermen
Off the Gaza coast.

THERE IS an old Chinese curse that says: “May you live in historic times!” (If there isn’t, there should be.)
 Thu, 20 Mar 2014 23:24:51 +0530 Kosher certificate
Who is a Jew?
An Israeli citizen
Can’t be considered Jewish
Without the Kosher certificate
Of the Chief Rabbinate.
- So said Ben Gurion.

What is a Jewish state?
The State of Israel
Can’t be considered Jewish
Without the Kosher certificate
Of President Abbas.
- So says Netanyahu.
 Fri, 14 Mar 2014 21:02:16 +0530 A Counter-Coalition
SOMETHING VERY important happened this week in the most unlikely of places: the Knesset.

50 high school students
Told Netanyahu
That their conscience
Does not allow them
To serve
In an occupation army.

Happy the people
That has such
Sons and daughters.
 Fri, 07 Mar 2014 19:45:16 +0530 God Bless Putin
BINYAMIN NETANYAHU is very good at making speeches, especially to Jews, neocons and such, who jump up and applaud wildly at everything he says, including that tomorrow the sun will rise in the west.
 Thu, 06 Mar 2014 23:42:54 +0530 Our part
"We have already
Done our part!”
Said Netanyahu
In response to
President Obama.

No doubt:
In settlement construction
Netanyahu has done
Very much indeed.
 Fri, 28 Feb 2014 17:18:29 +0530 Their Mothers, Their Fathers
IT IS the summer of 1941. Five youngsters – three young men and two young women – meet in a bar and spend a happy evening, flirting with each other, getting drunk, dancing forbidden foreign dances. They have grown up together in the same neighborhood of Berlin.
 Fri, 28 Feb 2014 00:43:22 +0530 Judaization and Zero Tolerance
Naftali Bennet,
A senior minister in
The Netanyahu cabinet,
Advocates “Judaization”
Of the Negev and Galilee
And expresses “Zero tolerance”
For the aspirations
Of Israel’s Arab citizens.

Is this the shape of
“The Jewish State”
Which Palestinians
Must recognize?

IT HAS always been a secret ambition of mine to have a bagatz ruling bearing my name.
 Fri, 21 Feb 2014 00:42:06 +0530 On the moon?
Netanyahu is for two states
(So he says)
But sees nothing wrong
In settlement expansion.

A Palestinian state where?
On the moon?

THIS IS a declaration of love. Three loves, actually.

I love Achinoam Nini. I love her from afar. I have never met her.

On Sunday,
Nine Judges of
The Supreme Court   
Will judge
The Boycott Law.

Consumer boycotts
Are legitimate:
Boycotting cottage cheese
Because its price
Is too high,
Boycotting settlements
Whose price
Is prohibitive.

Was hier im Gewand von Wissenschaft daherkommt ist reine Ideologie. http://www.heritage.org/Index/ Wre sie auf die Vereinigten Staaten beschrnkt, knnte dies der Rest der Welt verschmerzen. Das ist jedoch nicht der Fall. Und so besteht die konomische Freiheit nicht in der Freiheit souverner Staaten, die ihren jeweiligen kulturellen Traditionen und spezifischen gesellschaftlichen Bedingungen gemen Wirtschaftsmodelle zu entwickeln. Vielmehr werden sie durch die Dominanz des Dollarsystems und seine global wirkenden Institutionen gezwungen, das angelschsische Modell der freien Wirtschaft zu bernehmen, fr das sich der Begriff Washington Consensus eingebrgert hat. Dieses Modell wurde nach 1945 zunchst schleichend und nach dem Vertrag von Maastricht mit zunehmender Beschleunigung von der Europischen Union bernommen und ist seit 1. Dezember 2009 kodifiziertes Recht. Damit ist die EU ppstlicher als der angelschsische Papst.
