EVENT # 240: PUTTING OUT FIRE ... with gasoline
"See these eyes so green?
|POWERSSOUND: Nearly a decade ago, I used to go to sleep with New Age music being played on a radio program distributed by public broadcasting. It wasn't especially my choice, rather winning out only because I could find no decent jazz or R &B on my FM dial.
New Age apparently assumed that moniker because the genre often has a spacey feel. For me it was a satisfying method to calm down after a hard day leaning over a computer, writing, writing, and writing. All these years later, I'm sitting at my keyboard, writing a column with a small part of my brain listening to the sounds of a performer named Dueter.
His new album, "Sun Spirit" (New Earth Records) celebrates the essence of the sun with captivating melodies, brought to life with spirited flute, synthesizer and drum.
It turns out that Dueter is something of a one-man band, requiring no additional musicians for this leisurely and inoffensive hour, consisting of nine tracks that (and I don't mean to be insulting) all sound alike... BOB POWERS "New Age? It's OK, Almost.." More

"The Oppressive Victim"FAYCAL FALAKY
This propaganda claiming victimization of the Jews could be morally and politically dangerous.
It automatically immunizes the Jews against any criticism, since this criticism, when put in a context where the Holocaust is always present and remembered, could be tracked and accused of being anti-Semitism.
What is worse is that this self-victimization also immunizes Israel, a state that openly proclaims and constantly commemorates its Jewish identity and post-Holocaust history, from any blame or criticism. This absence of political reproach with regard to Israel has given the Western World an image of a sin-free, infallible Jewish state.
For example, for a typical American, Israel is a state that has fought justly to constitute itself on a land that it used to own 2000 years ago, a democratic country in the middle of a hostile region, surrounded by a bunch of totalitarian Arab countries.
What the typical American does not know is that a multitude of truths have been auto-censored by Western journalists and academia, in general, due to the fear of being taxed with anti-Semitism.
Most Americans have never heard of the Deir Yassine massacre when the Irgoun, one of the terrorist branches of the Israeli army, killed 250 Palestinians; or how the Haganah, the official Israeli army, in various Palestinian villages like that of Haker, used to kill a few Palestinians and let their corpses hang from trees, thus sending to the rest of the villagers a message of what they should be expecting. The massacres and the hangings were part of a strategy to incite the local Arabs to flee and leave free ways for the foundation of the "Biblical" Jewish State. The reactions of the new Israeli population to these strategies were diverse.. More
