Rand Paul slams GOP foreign policy Hawks
“Every time we’ve toppled a secular strongman,

According to halakha (Jewish religious law), anyone who enters the Temple area will be punished by karet—a death sentence carried out by God. This decision has been reinforced in innumerable rulings.

Why Syrians support Bashar al Assad
By Tim Anderson, Pravda 30.09.2014

 

The sudden reversion of Washington to a ‘war on terror’ pretext for intervention in Syria has confused western audiences. For three years they watched ‘humanitarian intervention’ stories, which poured contempt on the Syrian President’s assertion that he was fighting foreign backed terrorists.
