Trump Infuriates U.S. Israeli Lobby

As published in the Victoria Standard: August 6, 2016.

In spite of his divisive rhetoric on U.S. domestic issues; Donald Trump’s public statements on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict are surprisingly sensible. Reasonable enough, in fact; to infuriate the Israeli lobby and its neoconservative agents in the Republican Party who adhere to a policy of Israeli exceptionalism.

Kissinger’s Khmer Killing Fields

As published in the Victoria Standard: March 14, 2016

After learning that RCMP officers in Cambodia have been pursuing war crimes investigations concerning three former members of the Khmer Rouge; I couldn’t help but remember Henry Kissinger’s orders to the U.S. Air Force prior to 1973’s massive and illegal bombing campaign against Cambodia and Laos: “…anything that flies on anything that moves.”

Rebel "Poll" on Proportional Representation

Rebel "Poll" on Proportional Representation

as published in the Victoria Standard: February 29, 2016

I wonder if opponents of proportional representation (PR) have a comprehensive understanding of it or if they merely fear the prospect that electoral change will give a public voice to causes they despise? Might it not be preferable to debate the issues rather than seek to exclude opponents from the political arena?

Trudeau's Israeli Status Quo

Trudeau's Israeli Status Quo Ignores Palestinians

As published in the Victoria Standard: February 1, 2016.

Apparently, Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu “digs” Justin Trudeau; who affirmed official Canada’s ongoing support for Israel at the recent Davos summit. Canadian support for Israel likely means a quiet continuation of business ties, military liaison and silence on Israel’s illegal settlement and expansion activities in the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights; all in open violation of international law.

Protective Stupidity Rules Nuclear Policy

Protective Stupidity Rules Nuclear Policy

As published in the Victoria Standard: January 18, 2016

I share Justin Trudeau’s concern about North Korea's recent activities and nuclear proliferation in general. However, I must note that no one seems willing to comment publicly on the greater destabilizing hazard of Israel's growing arsenal of high-tech nuclear weapons, sophisticated delivery systems (including submarines) and sinister nuclear strategy.
