The Last of the Semites By Joseph Massad It is Israel's claims that it represents and speaks for all Jews that are the most anti-Semitic claims of all. 15, 2013 "Information Clearing House" -"Al Jazeera" - Jewish opponents of Zionism understood the movement since its early age as one that shared the precepts of anti-Semitism in its diagnosis of what gentile Europeans called the "Jewish Question". What galled anti-Zionist Jews the most, however, was that Zionism also shared the "solution" to the Jewish Question that anti-Semites had always advocated, namely the expulsion of Jews from Europe. It was the Protestant Reformation with its revival of the Hebrew Bible that would link the modern Jews of Europe to the ancient Hebrews of Palestine, a link that the philologists of the 18th century would solidify through their discovery of the family of "Semitic" languages, including Hebrew and Arabic. Whereas Millenarian Protestants insisted that contemporary Jews, as descendants of the ancient Hebrews, mus ...

*** TAIPEI-MANILA ROW: HAU URGES PUBLIC NOT TO BLAME FILIPINOS HERE IN TAIWAN FOR THE SHOOTING INCIDENT *** Taipei Mayor Hau Lung-bin (郝龍斌) yesterday urged the public not to blame the Philippine Coast Guard’s killing of a Taiwanese fisherman last week on Filipino workers and visitors, adding that the city government would work to ensure the safety of such workers in Taipei. The shooting of Taiwanese fisherman Hung Shih-cheng (洪石成) in contested waters in the South China Sea has sparked public anger at the Philippines, and the nation has demanded a formal apology and compensation from Manila. Hau yesterday reiterated his condemnation of the Philippines’ failure to meet Taiwan’s demands and take full responsibility for the incident. He added that letters had been sent to Taipei’s sister cities of Manila and Quezon to retract its invitation for them to participate in Taipei’s annual dragon boat festival next month, while suspending all city-to-city exchanges. However, he called on the pu ...

he M16 rifle, officially designated Rifle, Caliber 5.56 mm, M16, is the United States military version of the AR-15 rifle. The rifle was adapted for semi-automatic, three-round burst, and full-automatic fire.Colt purchased the rights to the AR-15 from ArmaLite, and currently uses that designation only for semi-automatic versions of the rifle. The M16 fires the 5.56×45mm NATO cartridge. The rifle entered United States Army service and was deployed for jungle warfare operations in South Vietnam in 1963, becoming the U.S. military's standard service rifle of the Vietnam War by 1969, replacing the M14 rifle in that role. The U.S. Army retained the M14 in CONUS, Europe, and South Korea until 1970. Since the Vietnam War, the M16 rifle family has been the primary service rifle of the U.S. armed forces. The M16 has also been widely adopted by other militaries around the world. Total worldwide production of M16s has been approximately 8 million, making it the most-produced firearm of its caliber. In 2010, the M16 ...

This led to the decay of our school systems...and then our neighborhoods. Like a wise man once said "Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime."

"The price of rhino horn has overtaken the price of gold as demand has burgeoned in Asian countries, mainly China and Vietnam, where consumers wrongly believe that the horn – made of the same substance as fingernails – has powerful healing properties. Chinese traditional medicine prescribes it for everything from typhoid, infant convulsions and fever to an antidote for poison and to relieve arthritis and cure possessions by the devil. Syndicates from Vietnam, China, South Korea and Thailand have been identified as being involved in the trafficking." Superstition and greed leads to the loss of another species.

April 30, 1975 - Republic of Vietnam Senior Master Sgt. Steve Abraham is a member of the South Dakota Air National Guard and is a full-time employee in the Human Resources Division at Camp Rapid. Abraham was a integral part of the evacuation of Americans and Vietnamese refugees during the fall of Saigon on this date in 1975. He was part of the U.S. Navy's 7th Fleet when American forces began the largest helicopter evacuation in history, rescuing the diplomatic delegation and other American interests from Saigon and elsewhere in South Vietnam. On board the USS Hancock, CVA-19, was then Cpl. Steve Abraham, Marine Corps, supporting the helicopter contingent deployed out of Okinawa for this harrowing mission. After several false starts on the 27th and 28th of April, the situation in Saigon was growing more critical when the Communist forces from the North began shelling Than Son Nut air base, making fixed-wing evacuations impossible.
