Why The Silence On AIPAC Trial?
Unless U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis rules sensibly on April 25, two former lobbyists for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee are scheduled to be tried May 23.

Are American Jewish leaders still too afraid of rocking the boat when the waters get choppy? Alas, our American Jewish organizational lions are timid lambs collecting high salaries as two Jewish public servants twist in the wind.

Our attitude, the way we approach and deal with the Middle East, depends on it. The more I learn about Islam, the more likely the answer would seem to be "no"; at least not without some degree of reformation.

If you have not read THIS ARTICLE on the Daily Pundit and are interested in illegal immigration go check it out. Bill has posted the parts of the Mexican Constitution that apply to immigrants and illegal immigrants in Mexico. Kind of an eye opener and makes one wonder about the pansy assed politicians we have in Washington DC.
