Raptis: Israel; It, Finally, Happened!
Jun 07, 2010
It started quite a few years ago. The more the religious fanatics from New York (or is it the psychopaths "used" by the US elites?) as emigrants to Israel got the upper hand, the more I could detect a rather painful effort in rational and honest people to try not to express a thought that since 1945, the end of WWII, for them was considered a "blasphemy".
Raptis: Of Turks & Greeks
May 27, 2010
As a Greek young man I was drafted to serve in the Greek Army. So, I was ordered to sing the usual "martial" songs that soldiers-in-training sing all over this unfortunate planet. The songs I was supposed to sing had words as the following examples: "Sofia, Sofia is our dream...", "I have a sister that is called Northern Epiros...", etc, etc. "Sofia" was and is the capital of Bulgaria. "North Epiros" was and is part of Albania. At that time, early 1950s, the "owner" of the Greek army was General James Alward Van Fleet, of Coytesvill, N. J. and of the US Army. The term "owner" is definitely not an exageration.

Rebick: Israel Losing Legitimacy
Mar 06, 2010
Before Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) even began members of the Ontario Legislature and the Canadian Parliament are falling all over each other to denounce it. I can't remember another time when elected legislators formally denounced a student activity like this. Perhaps during the 1950s when McCarthyism was rampant but that was before my time.
Raptis: Vectors of Evil
Feb 24, 2010
Suppose we wish to show on paper the magnitude of a force and the direction in which it acts. We agree to symbolize this by a line segment, an arrow, the length of which depicts the magnitude of the force and its direction shows the direction-of-action of the force. We call this arrow a "vector". So, a vector is simply a "carrier" (as its original Latin meaning) of something in a certain direction. Let us now introduce a new mathematical term: the "vector of evil". That is a person that "carries" a certain magnitude of evil directed against somebody. For example, Bush (father), Bush (son), and Bill Clinton can rightfully claim to be "vectors of evil" as all three murdered men, women, and children (infants in the case of Clinton) and their acts were directed towards the Iraqis. Dubya's length of the "vector" seems to be longer as he exceeded one million murdered.
Raptis: Obama, a C-minus? No!
Dec 19, 2009

C-" (ZNet, Dec. 13, '09): "If...one of my...students had handed in the very speech given by President Obama in Norway, I would have given that student a C-...Because he said, 'A nonviolent movement could not have halted Hitler's armies'...In fact, where nonviolence was attempted against the Nazis it succeeded. Ask the Norwegian teachers... Ask the non-Jewish [German] wives...on the Rosenstrasse... Ask the Jewish descendents of the 7,000+ Danish Jews... or ask the great-granddaughters of the Jews saved in Le Chambon..."
