Not withstanding a clear IAEA report exonerating Iraq of having Weapons of Mass Destruction, the Bush-Cheney administration ignored it and continued to push for a link between Saddam and Al-Qaeda.
The “Fourth Branch” is unelected and never accountable to the people, yet it decides for us and for the nations. It decides whom we should vote for, and it decides which wars we should support, and it decides which criminal regime or countries we should support. We are never free to make up our mind.
Let us hope for a positive reset on the American-Saudi Arabian relationship.
If we are to “deregulate” government, let us start with “deregulating” and privatizing the self-serving Congress that costs too much to operate, a Congress loyal and subservient to business and lobbies and indifference to the needs of citizens and taxpayers.
The other day, a friend of mine complained to me about America’s need for “White immigrants” and that America needs “White” immigrants and not immigrants from “Third World countries”,

President Trump can emerge as an American president who transformed “the American State”, setting it forward for the next generations, provided he does it right — professionally, and not through twitter.
This is America that tens of millions of immigrants like me know, love and appreciate, a country unlike any other country in its welcoming of refugees and new immigrants. One can only appreciate America and what it stands for when new immigrants passing their citizenship stand up and give loyalty to America, our adopted country.
“Jerusalem for All” would keep the city unified under international agreement, and preserve the unique quality of the city, and its special status as a holy city for Jews, Christians and Muslims.
What the hell; we have been not only hacking but buying, influencing, even killing in elections around the world for the last century. Stop crying Liberal America.
Erdogan failed to secure his domestic front before getting sucked into the Syrian civil war.
Mr. Trump, where is your man representing the interests of the “Common Man” who helped you get elected? We see none.
America, the great democracy, could never find a dictator it did not like. Of course, there are always exceptions to the rule, and the exception is Fidel Castro.
If President Elect Donald Trump wants to make “America Great Again”, then he has to earnestly take all the necessary steps to reunite America — to heal the wounds and divisions this presidential election created.
Last week, who’s who in Hollywood held a dinner to benefit members of the Israeli Defense Forces; and this one dinner raised $38 million in one night. But, our plans are to raise over the next 5 years a trust fund of $500 million from defense contractors, financial institutions, private and public foundations, and also from the federal, state and local governments, to allow us to carry on with putting American Veterans in the driver seat.
Let me congratulate you on your election. I did not vote for you because I felt that you attempted to disfranchise me as a Muslim-American. You offended me without knowing that I am a loyal citizen.
Who knows, maybe one day, we will have a Congress and presidential candidates who will represent not only the very rich, but the very poor and the middle class. America’s problem is not the presidency but Congress, and that is where the reform must take place.
The Prophet Mohamed ( pbuh) must be seen as a liberator that brought about a “just society”, with so many social changes that must be seen then and now as totally revolutionary.
Anyone who believes that Donald Trump or Hilary Clinton will make a material difference to the future of the nation is a stupid fool. It is the Congress that has the real power to reshape the nation and its future. The Speaker of the House, while not enjoying the privileges of Air Force One and the trappings of the Presidency, is the most powerful man in Washington.
We are all mistaken that Donald Trump or Hilary Clinton has the magic wand to make America Great now or again.

The legacy of Muhammad Ali holds a wake up call for Black leadership in America to take charge and lead a societal transformation away and independent of “institutions” that have failed them.
Sami Jamil Jadallah – Thank you, America, for what you are not that the politicians want you to be. They want a great America through investment in wars, rather than in people; the latter being the very essence of great nation building.
It’s time to pursue the One State Solution — a state for all of its people. Palestinians have lived with others for many years; Jews have lived with others for centuries. Why couldn’t the two live together?
Sami Jamil Jadallah – The challenge now is how can the Arab World best defeat “Daesh”.
It is ironic that the US, spends over $6 billion on national elections, and spends $700M annually promoting “democracy” overseas, when in fact we should be learning “democracy” from other countries, especially those in Western Europe. Our democracy fails the test on all grounds.
Sami Jamil Jadallah – What happened to Donald Trump and the disruption to his rally is a reminder that while it is true we have guaranteed freedom of speech but that freedom also has its limitations.
Sami Jamil Jadallah – AIPAC and Israel understood clearly that the president’s powers and tenure in office are limited, one term, two terms at most while there are NO term limits for members of Congress. That is why AIPAC spends its money on congressional elections and little money on presidential elections.
Sami Jamil Jadallah – Bernie Sanders is right when he calls for a social, political and economic revolution that will shape the future of the nation for the next hundred years. By the way every country needs some kind of political and economic revolution at least once every hundred years. America’s time is now.
