Yenisafak: "horrifying" levels of non-recycleable plastic waste at Christmas time
Greatest mystery of modern time ...
Why does Israel get away with committing illegal acts?
Christmas in Jerusalem - unforgettable!
Yenisafak: Nov. 19/19 - Israeli settlements breach international law: UN
"Per se" means "in and of itself", implying, I suppose, extenuating circumstances in that the Israelis don't really wanna be pushy but those pesky Palestinians are so dad-blamed inhospitable they practically beg to be run rough-shod over.
The same kind of mental disconnect is evident in the above image of horrifying Christmas waste; the kind that fills the aisles of grocery and convenience stores everywhere around the world beginning immediately after Halloween, while the UN keeps us focused on the imaginary dangers of C02.
Now here's a shocker:
CBC: Canada reverses UN stance on Palestinians in break with U.S. over settlements
Finally something the Trudeau government has done that deserves a nod of approval. Not that it holds much weight at the UN, but it could start a little fire ... maybe.
For indepth information, Canadians for Justice & Peace in the Middle East tell the full story:
CJPME: Netanyahu’s Annexation of Israeli Settlements
You might also read my Nov. 16/19 post to get a feel for the kind of scum Netanyahu has turned out to be.
All of this occurs a little over a month before Christmas, as if to remind me of what I wrote at Christmas 2017 --
YYC: The Colour of Blood in Palestine
-- and just a couple of days after reading the following question and answer:
Quora: If any country violates international law, then how are they prosecuted and who prosecutes them?
Well, they'll have to clean up their act if they want to deal with Canada, won't they!
Sadly, Canada's opinion isn't likely to matter much, but it's a start, though it does make me wonder if Trudeau knows who the next American president will be (Trump, who dislikes Chrystia Freeland?), especially since he's reportedly moved Freeland -- who didn't bat an eyelash at heading up what was done against Venezuelans and heartily approved of what happened in Bolivia -- into Canada's internal fracas where it's been made clear, on social media at least, that "Canada is broken" and, apparently, badly needs a stern mommy.
Even though, so far, she seems more adept at breaking things rather than fixing them.
You might want to take a look at CPAC this afternoon to get it all from the horse's mouth.
You can also get a blow-by-blow of the Trump impeachment proceedings from Politico.
My prediction re Trump: He will not likely be criminally charged and has a massive Christian Right and Far Right following that may well see him re-elected. And I'm proud to say I decided that before reading Market Watch's 4 reasons why Donald Trump will be re-elected in 2020.
Why? Because, to most Americans, he still looks better than the evil Dems, not to mention that he's numero uno with Israel. I have a strong feeling also that, despite criminal charges against him, Netanyahu will be allowed to stay on as King of Israel.
Independent: Netanyahu’s chances of remaining prime minister have improved with latest conflict in Gaza, observers say, but he is playing with fire
It seems most people really do want bad guys running their governments.
But Mousie, thou art no thy-lane,
In proving foresight may be vain:
The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men
Gang aft agley,
An’ lea’e us nought but grief an’ pain,
For promis’d joy!
Still, thou art blest, compar’d wi’ me!
The present only toucheth thee:
But Och! I backward cast my e’e,
On prospects drear!
An’ forward tho’ I canna see,
I guess an’ fear!
Wexit A, Wexit B, and counting ...
No Respectable Leadership ... not in the UK, not in the US, certainly not in Canada. 11/01/20
