Palestine – Israel Aggression Against Gaza
Israeli authorities ongoing aggression having claimed at least 600 and more lives and still counting is deeply regrettable and deserves denouncement.
Israel pursuing violence to exert authority over Palestinians in the occupied territory has no limits and the oppression since the establishment of Israel in 1948 continues until now.
Whenever Israel is at odds with political development in Palestine, Israel’s leadership immediate response from is military attacks and intensified ground raids not even sparing the place of worship – al Aqsa mosque in al Quds, East Jerusalem.
Similarly Israel’s unilateral blockade on Gaza from 2007 has crippled Gaza’s economy with life made impossible for the citizens in the beleaguered enclave.
The sanctions are not confined to trade activities alone but also extended towards livelihoods with restrictions on fishermen in coastal Gaza.
Gaza fishermen inadvertent crossing beyond demarcated territorial waters dealt with extreme measures ranging from apprehension, prolonged detention to random shooting in the speedboat chase threatening the fishing community in Gaza.
Israel’s routine airstrikes followed by persistent ground incursion is reprehensible.
Again the belligerence with impunity on international watch and Arab league silence imply complicity and endorsement of crimes against defenseless and voiceless people in Gaza and the rest of Palestine.
Israel and allies justifying military option and tactics as self-defense is baseless and confirms utter disregard for Palestinian lives and human rights in the occupied state.
In the absence of collective responsibility to condemn Israeli authorities provocation and use of force the innocent civilians pay the price,
Israeli government issuing construction permits extending settlement activities in West Bank, al-Quds and now the military assault on Gaza clarifies the political paradox in the proclamation of Israel being the only democracy in the Middle East.
The fact of the matter is the architects behind the policy against Palestinians promote subjugation through occupation and suppression of political freedom for regional dominance and influence via proxy representation in most parts of the world under the guise of democracy.
Israeli government with allies – United States and Britain defending the indefensible offense in Gaza speaks volume on the kind of democracy prevalent in respective domains and arguably raise questions on the legitimacy of the power enforcing gross human rights violation.
Ever since the formation of unity government in Ramallah emerging from bilateral consensus between Hamas and Fatah leaderships,
Israel along with United States having vehemently opposed the unification is currently engaged in turning Gaza into the playground to test defense stockpiles and innovative technology in Israel’s possession.
Showing no remorse for the killings of children, women and youths in Gaza, the leaderships in Israel, United States, Britain and alike in favor of present violence demonstrates political characteristics in contradiction to assertion as democracy worthy of emulation.
Unwillingness to accept political progress in Palestine is the sign of insecurity and frustration over declining supremacy.
The nuclear state Israel’s defiance to international call to cease Palestinian oppression only isolates the former and,
Global perspective on this issue evidently identifies the occupier as the problem.
Israeli authorities persecution of Palestinians – Gaza in particular targeted at every opportunity is self-detrimental and indicative of the beginning of the end of sponsors with unmitigated disaster arising from reckless policy.
United States veto at the U.N. Security Council on Palestinian issue is predominantly responsible for status quo.
Had United States adopted fairness and objectivity reflecting democratic values and respect for all lives rather than selective protection on humanitarian and political affairs during UNSC resolutions,
The Palestinian and global crises could be contained and resolved in humanity’s interest.
Instead the failed strategy is the preference, expecting to prevail in the misguided agenda.
Israel and allies credibility is directly linked with recognition of Palestinians as members of human race and acknowledgment of Palestinian rights to exist in a free society.
United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) coming forward with every member state exercising sovereign right on unanimous approval to the establishment of Independent Palestine is the urgent requirement on Israeli Palestinian dispute settlement.
The formal and official status to Palestinian statehood encompassing contentious and relevant matter is the key solution to Palestinian political struggle.
Israel renouncing violence for peaceful co-existence would guarantee stability and security to all in the otherwise volatile region.
Those instigating unrest and turmoil anywhere could not be democratic and the lack of tolerance to unity endangers global peace with inevitable adverse impact for the origin.
Israel’s ceasefire against Gaza and honoring Palestinian liberty with unconditional release of all detainees in detention centers, freezing settlers expansion in West Bank and demolition of Palestinian homes in East Jerusalem, withdrawal of Israeli forces from the occupied territory is paramount for positive outcome in the peace initiative on Israeli and Palestinian conflict.
Israel’s military might exacerbates Palestinian plight notwithstanding the egregious decisions affecting the source having exhausted the victims and global citizens patience on abuse of power and privilege.
Finally, Israeli authorities concern for own safety amid violent pursuits against residents in Gaza and remaining Palestine is entirely dependent on renunciation of obsolete dogma in appreciation for Palestinian and others freedom.
I offer my sincere condolences to bereaved families with prayers for those wounded in the unnecessary and unwanted warfare in Gaza.
May God bless the people seeking relief from suffering and expedite the new beginning marking the conclusion of terror causing turbulence.
Peace to all!

United States health care debate renewed in 2013 provides opportunity for national movement seeking single payer system otherwise known as universal care in consideration of costs analyses favoring taxpayer dollars investment in comprehensive health care benefits for all.
The status quo evidently has at least 46 to 50 million Americans uninsured with Medicaid and Medicare criteria only allowing those qualifying the category.
Notwithstanding these programs constantly threatened with possible elimination under fiscal responsibility pretext amid bipartisan approval of wasteful spending in illegal warfare, sponsoring terrorism and multi billion dollars aid to Israel other than regional funding to safeguard nuclear Israel’s security.
In the health care reform passed in 2010 – the failure to enforce premium cap and measures to maintain affordability contributes to exorbitant costs depriving patients from receiving necessary medical relief and life saving procedures now and in the future.
Furthermore, effective January 2014 the mandatory subscription in the bill with penalty on non-compliance designed to favor health insurance industry would exacerbate citizens suffering in the dire economy heightened with misplaced priority to fund terror activities in Syria and expansion of militarism in the Asia Pacific titled pivot to Asia and Africom in the African continent.
Single payer implemented in other industrialized nations proved to be economically prudent and financially profitable to participating companies in the standardized method avoiding unnecessary expenses while facilitating diverse health care options through private management.
The tax dollars divestment in socialized medicine for national distribution would essentially constitute quasi operation with private sector focus on services relevant to health care needs.
Accordingly taxes collected from taxpayers allocated to guaranteed health care protect lives substantially reducing present Medicare and Medicaid spending upon amalgamation of auxiliaries under universal care ambit.
Single payer option is the legitimate right of all citizens and protects small businesses along with medium and major corporations from dealing with minimum to optimum commitments towards employees in the exponentially rising health care and pharmaceutical payments adjusted against salaries and wages that could be expended in retail consumption of utilitarian products serving as the economic stimulus.
Although choices for people to explore suitable plan would be a bonus in the national health scheme, the marginalized demography affected in the lack of free health care provisions would primarily gain from federal and state funded medical assistance.
United States budget appropriation directed in public and national interests could produce positive outcome and issues such as social security, health care, education and environment besides job creation deserves due attention with effective policies leading to sustainable progress.
Healthy nation means higher productivity critical for economic growth and long-term prosperity.
Single payer or national health care is an entitlement that could no longer be denied to citizens in a nation that disproportionately misuse tax revenues on destructive cause.
Finally, United States citizens unified stance on universal health care urging Congress to act in recognition of republic will is the cornerstone to bring about the anticipated change improving economic conditions for the struggling class in society.
Peace to all!

The vision impairment might limit normal functioning but not necessarily the determination of those faced with such challenge.
Unlike earlier, blindness is overcome with many useful techniques and aid especially with technology enabling free movement and ability to perform tasks at home and work environment.
However, there are estimated 1.3 million blind men, women and children in the United States and more around the world in need of assistance for self-support existence.
On behalf of several citizens around the world affected by blindness,
I kindly request the global community to donate generously in improving the lives of many people through programs and modern facilities in progress due to organizations such as National Federation of the Blind commitment to change the perception about blindness and support those in the situation to cope with ease and dignity.
The excerpts of the letter received from President Marc Maurer, National Federation of the Blind, (NFB) presented for clarity.
“Blindness can be a terrible tragedy…but it doesn’t have to be if people like you understand.
Remember, blind people are not looking for a handout. We don’t want pennies thrown in a tin cup with pity. We want the chance to pay our own way, to go to school, learn a skill and do an honest day’s work for an honest living.
–The 74 percent unemployment rate that blind citizens in the United States face is outrageous! –
Blindness affects our eyes, not our competence, intelligence, skills, aptitude, or ability. We’ll prove that with proper training, we can show superior performance on the job.
With your help and the help of others, sighted people will exchange their fear and pity for understanding and acceptance.
Blind people have had to struggle against these misunderstandings, and we need you to help spread the message about what blind people can and can’t do…especially when it comes to employment.
Blindness is, and always will be inconvenient, but it doesn’t have to be incapacitating. WE NEED A CHANCE. We need trust and understanding! WE NEED YOU.
The National Federation of the Blind was organized almost seventy-four years ago to assist all blind persons, and particularly to help lessen the hurt for blind children who must function fully in a predominantly sighted world.
But, we can’t do it alone…we need your understanding, your voice, and your help to spread the word more than ever before…and we need it right now.
Here is some of the work we do which we need you to help us spread the word about:
> Building and equipping the largest, most up-to-date Braille and Technology Center for blind workers in the world.
> Creating Newline for the Blind the talking newspaper service that allows blind people to hear their local newspapers over the telephone.
>Developing the first Portable Hand-Held Reading Machine for the blind and most recently, the smallest text-to-speech reading device ever created – the knfb READER mobile.
This is such a life-changing innovation because it REDUCES THE INCONVENIENCE AND NUISANCE OF BLINDNESS. For the first time, a blind person, without help, can go shopping and distinguish between bottles of medicines and vitamins or tell if he or she is handing a cashier a $20 bill or a $1 bill.
>Establishing the innovative Online Blindness Education Program designed to teach critical information about blindness and blind people to sighted educators, blindness professionals, family members of blind children or adults, and anyone else interested in what blindness is – - and more important – what it isn’t.
>Working to improve the resources and opportunities for blind senior citizens to remain active, independent members in our communities.
>Providing White Canes free of charge to blind and visually impaired people who need them.”
You may please contact National Federation of the Blind, 200 East Wells Street, At Jernigan Place, Baltimore, MD 21230-4998. United States. Tel. # (410) 659-9314.
In conclusion, NFB President Marc Maurer plea is for the fundamental development utilizing innovative information and technology to allow the partial or full blindness condition to become less of an impediment.
The global empathy towards mankind would alleviate difficulties and suffering through sharing and caring for all.
Peace to all!
