Kudos to the brave Ali we certainly need more of this on the public stage! I'd have liked to have witnessed this at the RNC in Cleveland as well. I will never understand how both the Dems as well as the Repubs got so corrupt, and the zionists so damn entrenched in this Country. Walking through the historical areas of Philly, one quickly realizes the depths of character - how great many of our leaders were in their drive to create a nation dedicated to the ideals of "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness", as well as the sacrifices made to do so. The sellouts, the corrupt, selfish, deceptive criminals that run this country - as well as their minions - have no where close the integrity and depth of character that it took to create this nation!
Kurnaz had the stones to step away from the herd and follow his conscience. Evil forces wish to keep the status quo of the criminal, racist state that is Israel. God bless him, we in the US need more of this bravery desperately!
Bryan, when looking at the overall dilemma and utter disaster that the country has been put through with our so-called "representatives", you must assess several facts when looking at the lessor evils of the group of candidates: With respect to Bernie Sanders who would NOT be able to follow through with all that he promises - except possibly a balance to middle-eastern policy (I have donated to his campaign multiple times), as well as an egotistical, perhaps over-confident guy - Donald Trump, who can perhaps get the US out of crushing debt, but whom most every other dynamic of foreign and domestic quandary could be uncertain. Everyone else is a complete disaster - I don't see Hillary nor Cruz, nor Kasich, nor Rubio, nor any other Washington insider come even close to standing up to AIPAC or its operating wings - Democrat or Republican
Donald Trump may be an unpredictable loose-cannon at times, vulgar, egocentric, brash, etc, but he's no insider and may actually be good for the Nation on several fronts; and Bernie may be uplifting in a lot of ways, but he can't win now. My point is that this country needs to change not only its political mindset with respect to our "shared values" with our so-called "democratic friend in the Middle-East" (which are laughable to me), but a complete change of leadership all together.
I just can't understand it: I spent 20 years in the US military, being taught concepts such as when and when not to use deadly force, and by the Geneva Convention when someone is no longer considered an active combatant, etc. About how we as American service members are held to a higher standard, and that we are expected to live up to that standard both in uniform and out. Then I watch a group of undisciplined thugs - cowards in uniforms, vehicles, and weapons (like the one I carried) that U.S. (my) tax dollars helped or completely purchased, summarily execute - murder a man who's humanity, who's life has been reduced to trash in their minds! I cannot understand how in 2016, this and similar barbaric acts of a society can go on, or worse yet - be rewarded through appropriations and a myriad of perks, favourtism status.
Rest assured, if I or any of my comrades committed this cowardly act, charges of murder, war crimes, amongst others would be levied and QUICKLY! Fox News, CNN, and all the news outlets domestically and WORLD-WIDE would be all over it - guaranteed! I turn on the news here - no mention whatsoever - nor a story on Bing, Yahoo, MSN, nothing. Unbelievable!!! Apparently the atrocities don't matter, nor the conduct of Israeli citizens, nor the conduct of the settlers, nor the Israeli Government policies. The citizens and politicians that support these atrocities, ignore them, as well as the news agencies that censor them are complicit in these crimes! How is it that we servicemen are held to higher standards, our countrymen can and do criticize my government without being labeled as an "anti-Americanite", and that our news outlets would be quick to report any domestic slight (and beat it like a dead horse), but hardly anyone - including our corrupt politicians would dare criticize Israel (right, Ted and Hillary)!!!
