Cures For “Racism”

Dear Editor:

America fought a bloody Civil War against slavery. Kennedy and LBJ pushed civil rights legislation, the War On Poverty.  70’s America marched for civil rights and de-institutionalized “institutionalized” racism. Apparently that is insufficient for BLM and eternally guilty “progressive” Whites. A sad fact of human nature is that there will always be “racists” however, America no longer tolerates overt actions of discrimination in its hiring practices, places of business, or community governments. Burning our cities, condemning all of America’s history, all its institutions, will only serve to further polarize us.  If Trump represents to you what was bad about America in the past, work hard to de-elect him.

Michele Obama urges “stay in school” as a means to effect change and improve your lot. In March 2008, Obama gave a comprehensive speech on race. He said “a more perfect United States required African Americans taking full responsibility for our own lives … by demanding more from our fathers, spending more time with our children, reading to them, and teaching them that while they may face challenges and discrimination in their own lives, they must never succumb to despair or cynicism; they must always believe that they can write their own destiny.”

Al Sharpton brought us the fabricated, racist, charges of rape by Tawana Brawley, against an innocent white police officer, but now says “get off our necks”.  Where was Sharpton or the Congressional Black Caucus about the need for police “reforms” who were busy (along with Bill Clinton), standing defiantly with Black Hitler, Nation of Islam Farrakhan at Aretha Franklin’s funeral. I don’t know about you but I miss the distinguished leadership of Martin Luther King Jr.

Cures for “racism?” Instead of blaming America, or “racism” or ‘society’, blame instead your own “leaders” who are failing you by perpetuating victimhood, instead of demanding accountability for the statistically disproportionate amount of criminality, drug dealing, school drop outs, culture of lawlessness of inner city Black youths and men, and the acceptance of this as the norm. The Obamas said it best: get an education, learn a trade, be somebody.

The Truth & Beauty of Israel

Dear Editor:

Israel is the only Middle Eastern country where the Christian population is growing. Israel safeguards Christian sites of historical significance.  Israeli law affords full rights to its LGBT citizens, including employment discrimination laws.  Human Rights Watch: “Fatah-dominated Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) in Gaza carried out scores of arbitrary arrests for peaceful criticism of the authorities. Security forces routinely taunt, threaten, beat, and force detainees into painful stress positions for hours at a time.”  Saudi Arabia now allows women over 21 to obtain passports and travel abroad without the permission of a male guardian. But the “darker reality”, includes mass arrests of women’s rights activists, a number of whom have been sexually assaulted, suffered torture including whipping and electric shocks.”

Why do we not ever hear any media coverage on Israel’s striving to maintain a true democracy, affording full civil, religious, legal rights to all its citizens, while having to maintain full security against terrorism? Arabs sit in the Knesset. Israel is the only state in the Middle East ranked ‘Free’ by Freedom House, which evaluates countries according to their political rights and civil liberties. And relative to its population, Israel is the largest immigrant-absorbing nation on earth.

No, this is not a story about David vs. Goliath. It is about Arabs using the less than 3% building on legally disputed lands to claim false victim status. It is about the West’s fear of legitimate criticism of Islam and Arabs, in favor of demonizing Israel. Since 1947, Israel has been seeking a two-state solution. But the Arabs refuse to accept the reality of the Jewish state, refuse peace offers and refuse to negotiate. That is the true obstacle to peace. And this truth goes unreported by all.
