Nika Knight – Lashing Out, Israel Vows More Settlements, Reduces Diplomatic Ties

Israel is lashing out in the wake of last week’s United Nations resolution that demanded the country put an end to settlement activity on occupied Palestinian territory.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu summoned Israel’s U.S. ambassador Sunday for a private meeting, while close allies to the right-wing prime minister claimed that President Barack Obama was secretly behind the resolution—and promised to share “evidence” of Obama’s alleged role with president-elect Donald Trump, whose choice for ambassador to Israel signals an ...

Bernard Starr – Who Founded Christianity? Some Say Jesus; Some Say Paul. What If Neither Did? The Answer Will Surprise You

Nowhere in the New Testament does Jesus or Paul say he is rejecting Judaism and starting a new religion. In fact, the term “Christian” doesn’t appear at all in the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), which chronicle Jesus’ spiritual mission; and only later, three times in the rest of the New Testament . The first utterance of the word “Christian” occurred when Paul was preaching in Antioch more than a decade after the crucifixion.

NEW YORK (December 5, 2016)–The relative portion of older adherents to the world’s religions will shift in the coming decades, according to a study by a researcher at the Robert N. Butler Columbia Aging Center, Mailman School of Public Health. In 2010, Jews had the largest portion of seniors with 20 percent age 60 and older; on the low end, only 7 percent of Muslims represented this age group. By 2050, the study projects that Buddhists and the religiously unaffiliated ...

Punit Shah – People with Autism Make More Logical Decisions

The following essay is reprinted with permission from The Conversation, an online publication covering the latest research.

Decisions are based on the way choices are framed. This is because people use emotion when making decisions, leading to some options feeling more desirable than others. For example, when given £50, we are more likely to gamble the money if we stand to lose £30 than if we are going to keep £20.The Conversation

Although both options are ...

ROBERT FANTINA – Netanyahu, Palestine and Ethnic Cleansing

Well, once again, Israeli Prime Murderer Benjamin Netanyahu astounds. One would think that there must be some limit to the bizarre statements that issue from his mouth, but no, we learn again and again that he is willing to push the bizarreness envelope to places where, like the crew of Star Trek’s Enterprise, no one has ever before ventured.

His latest flight of fancy even seems to have astonished his worshipful U.S. government, which characterized his statements as ‘inappropriate and unhelpful’, ...

Buddha, Christ, Krishna Within

Buddha, Christ, Krishna waits inside you.

This is not about religion, it is about the presence within. So…

Look within!

It matters not, to whom one connects for inspiration, or that any historical figure play a role in one’s life.

At the time of their incarnations on Earth, these beings came to anchor an energy on the planet.

Those named in the title are not the only ones.

There have been avatars, both male and female, who played this role in ...

JONATHAN H. MARTIN – Beyond Bernie: The Hidden Potential of Progressive Third Parties

Although the 2016 Democratic Convention came and went quickly this summer, disturbing questions that it raised for many U.S. progressives linger. How could Bernie Sanders, one of the most vocal critics of plutocracy, enthusiastically endorse Hillary Clinton? She is a classic corporate Democrat who defeated him in a blatantly rigged primary. And now that Bernie has backed such an establishment figure, is there any hope for a political revolution, if there ever was? To address these questions, we must look ...

Lawrence Davidson – What Israel’s Actions Have Wrought

It has been 71 years since the end of the Holocaust. Initially, the world took that horror as a serious lesson, and the international community created laws against acts of genocide. Those who, even after the public revelation of the Nazi killing fields, still held anti-Semitic opinions kept them to themselves, and as time passed, this particular form of bigotry seemed to be fading away.

And, indeed, that might have been its fate if it weren’t for the strange fact ...

Professor Kamel Hawwash – Britain should apologise for the Balfour Declaration, not ‘celebrate’ it

The Balfour Declaration is a letter from the then British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Walter Rothschild, for transmission to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland. The critical part of this short letter said: “His Majesty’s government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice ...
