    Tensions Flare on U.S. House Floor Over Israel Defense Funding By Elizabeth Crisp On 9/23/21 Ted Deutch Accuses Rashida Tlaib Of Anti-Semitism In Tense Iron Dome Funding Debate An effort to allocate $1 billion toward Israel's Iron Dome defense system prompted a heated debate on the U.S. House floor on Thursday, with multiple Republican members lobbing accusations of anti-Semitism. Representative Rashida Tlaib, a Michigan Democrat and the only Palestinian American member of Congress, told her colleagues in a fiery floor speech that she would be voting against the measure because of her views on Israel. "I will not support an effort to enable and support war crimes, human rights abuses and violence," she said. "The Israeli government is an apartheid regime." Shortly after Tlaib's argument against the bill, Representative Chuck Fleischmann, a Tennessee Republican, sharply rebuked Tlaib, gesturing toward the Democratic side of the chamber.

    GOP rising star Lindsey Graham had threatened to impeach Biden if any of our "allies" from Afghanistan were left behind. If turned out that these guys were brought as a result of such political pressure, would this lead to end of LG's political future? Time will tell.

    It appears 'fierce' resistance and fighting claims were fakenews: In Panjshir, Few Signs of an Active Resistance, or Any Fight at All On a recent visit, few civilians were about and signs of heavy fighting were scarce. What remained were opposing narratives and claims of massacres, ethnic cleansing and false charges.

    Is it being implied here that all four Prez are equally responsible for failed policy behind 20 years of Afghan war & Obama was unfairly singled out as 'war criminal' & 'hypocrite of the century' ? There may have been reporting clamp down during Trump Presidency but war effort was also scaled down after initial surge (much smaller surge compared to Obama's) and so called 'Afghan Peace Deal of the Century' was also made on Trump watch to give credit where due. Bush would take the lead when it comes to Iraq war mess, Obama would own Afghan war mess more than any other Prez.

How do media owners' employees decide which missing person story should be made a top national headline for months and 90% of all exygen given to one case while ignoring all other missing persoon cases.. when there is a good photogenic person involved to boost media ratings? All possible efforts should be made to recover missing persons but what justifies months long national level focus on a single case while zero coverage of all the other cases.

    These are subjective opinions mostly based on media reports and Nobel Peace Prize factor may have also colored some opinions; until some judicious entity (not ICC) takes account of last 20 years wars policies and actors role, a fully accurate comparison may remain elusive. But some educated guesses can be made based on what is in public domain, see post above.

    EM Putting aside partisan/tribal aspects (that also play a role no doubt) for a moment, in this particular case 'the guy in the middle' is being called architect of the "Afghanistan mess" and not of the entire 20 years Afghan policy. It is undisputed that largest troops surges/war escalation, deaths of highest number of US troops, civilians, children (and creation of largest number of terrorists) took place on his watch. The 12-Year War: 73% of U.S. Casualties in Afghanistan Occured on Obama's Watch If he was being pressured behind the scenes, he should have taken Congress/public into confidence instead of being a compliant puppet of deep neecons pushing lies based global interventions. He could still do that following the example of Colin Powell who to his credit tried to set the record straight few years after launch of Iraqi freedom war blunder.

    Biden's Peace credential also seem lacking relatively since he never won a Nobel Peace Prize. While observation about Biden being 'an old white guy' may be factual, is the suggestion here that Obama got a pass from liberals over his alleged war crimes and Afghan war bungling because he was of 'mixed race'? Had read some unproven theories previously about deep neocon lobbies' plays during Iraq, Syria, Libya, Gaza interventions of recruiting and grooming weak, politically orhpan minorities (Jamaican heritage Colin 'I'm not reading this. This is bull$hit' Powell, Kamala Harris, Latino-American Marco 'need to dig in for a fight in Iraq' Rubio, Rafael Ted 'boots on the ground in Syria' Cruz, Condi 'Iraq war birthing pains' Rice etc) to use them to push US taxpayers funded global wars. But this at best could be one of the multilple factors and media liberals role seems to be part of a bigger more complex media-politics nexus story.

    One drone strike on Biden watch (that killed 10 civilians) has got more scrutiny, transparency and condemnation in US media than all the thousands of drone strikes combined on Obama watch that killed thousands of civilians and children. What is driving this stark shift in attitudes? 'God bless partisan politics'... or recent social justice campaigns ('Me Too' following Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein takedown, BLM following Miriam Carey and George Floyd killings) or something else...

Once in a while WaPo does print news with potential to inform. Perhaps the Trump inspired growing wedge between moderate/left-wing, pro Iraq-war zionism of WaPo/NYT and hard-right pro-Israeli settlements zionism of the Kushner family is resulting in some infighting that might benefit tax payers in the end.

Evangelical pastor John Hagee, the leader of Christians United for Israel (CUFI), the US’ largest pro-Israel organization and the most powerful group in the Christian Zionist movement, has adamantly insisted that Christian Zionism is anti-Semitic.

WorldNetDaily (WND), a far-right website published an article in March 2015 about the “Blood Moon Prophecy,” an end-of-times theory that lunar eclipses are a sign
