    Your 1/2 truth is no truth and I'm old enough to remember this history first hand. So 'googling' visit weighted revisionist garbage is a waste of time.

    The ground for taking ignorance to be restrictive of freedom is that it causes people to make choices which they would not have made if they had seen what the realization of their choices involved. A.J. Ayer, Sir. "The Concept of Freedom "

      It's not your fault you've been brainwashed. "Memory Corrupted" is the perfect handle for you.

      When I was growing up in a mostly Jewish neighborhood, I would hear my Jewish classmates parrot phrases like “A land without a people for a people without a land.”

      Also “Jews take an acre of desert and turn it into a garden. Arabs take an acre of garden and turn it into a desert.”

      This was just after the 1967 war, which was described as a miracle that prevented Israel’s imminent destruction at the hands of massive Arab forces.

      I also heard that Jews and Arabs had been fighting each other in Palestine for millennia.

      This was the Zionist narrative that somehow made it into the mainstream in the U.S. and I believed every word of it at one time.

      The trouble is, none of it is actually true.

      Obama: Pro-Pentagon, pro-Wall Street, pro-drilling, pro-fracking, pro-KXL, pro-surveillance. And the only person he prosecuted for the U.S. torture program is the man who revealed it. Clinton: More of the same.
