War never changes. Ambiguous reasons, propaganda, pointed fingers, supposed peace talks and heated debate flow into a confused public all while people are losing their lives to reasons unknown to them.

Where does one begin? How many of these anti-Israel rants does the Sundial intend to print year after year after year,  while your ‘Fact-Checker’ rots away like the crypt-master in Manzanita Hall.  Will anyone awaken the ‘Fact-Checker’ from his nightmarish slumber?  Why must your accident...

Shut up about the “two-state solution.” In a classic case of false advertising: President Obama tries to push “separate but equal” on the Palestinians

Joseph Glatzer

September 28, 2009
