As the "debate" rages on over at Constance's blog over whether I am a credible source for information about communitarianism or not, Constance and I will be on the air discussing communitarianism again tomorrow. http://cumbey.blogspot.com/
The accusations expanded to calling my blog a soap opera (which is too funny because all I did was repost what they were saying here!) and also a New Ager because I endorse the Earthing Technology. So all new technology that exists outside the established medical "community" is considered New Age? People are doing searches for "Niki Raapana Stormfront" because they just can't believe I'm not some Aryan white supremacist hiding behind... well I'm still not sure what I'm supposed to be hiding behind. Some people hate it that I use jewishtribalreview as a source, and other people hate it that I use Christians and Jews and Muslims as sources. I'd say what's happening at Constance's blog is a good example of why the topic of communitarianism remains so obscured from the world. Nobody wants to accept their religion or political party's part in establishing a communitarian global order. What a great plan, eh?
Robert Kennedy visited British Palestine in 1948 and wrote several articles for a Boston paper about his experiences there. In the close of this article, posted by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, he suggested the US, "through the UN must take the lead in bringing about peace in the Holy Land." Did Kennedy meet up with Amitai Etzioni when he travelled with the "underground" Haganah?
"The Jews on the other hand believe that in a few more years, if a Jewish state is formed, it will be the only stabilizing factor remaining in the Near and Middle East. The Arab world is made up of many disgruntled factions which would have been at each other's throats long ago if it had not been for the common war against Zionism. The United States and Great Britain before too long a time might well be looking to a Jewish state to preserve a toehold in that part of the world.
"Both sides still hate the British far more deeply than they hate one another. There was a British high commissioner who when attending the opera used to have his car parked directly in front of the main door, a place usually reserved for discharging passengers. An even more unpopular practice was the regulation that at the end of the opera everyone had to remain in their seats until the British high commissioner was out of the opera house and in his car.
"But the British have left - and now the issue is to be resolved in a bitter war between Jew and Arab. I do not think the freedom-loving nations of the world can stand by and see "the sweet water of the River Jordan stained red with the blood of Jews and Arabs." The United States through the United Nations must take the lead in bringing about peace in the Holy Land." http://www.jcpa.org/JCPA/Templates/ShowPage.asp?DBID=1&TMID=111&LNGID=1&FID=376&PID=0&IID=2213
Caroline Kennedy is hoping to take over Hillary Clinton's Senate seat and has reportedly told Press TV she "strongly supports a safe and secure Israel." When asked whether she would support an Israeli air strike on Iran, Kennedy said "Israel's security decisions should be left to Israel."
"Kennedy's stance toward Israel suggests that she has decided not to follow in the footstep of her late father, president John F. Kennedy, who enraged Israeli prime minister David Ben-Gurion over Tel Aviv's nuclear ambitions.Congressman Ron Paul disagrees with Caroline's assessment of Israel's security:
"Ben-Gurion, who ruled Israel from its inception in 1948 until he resigned on June 16, 1963, was convinced that Tel Aviv needed nuclear weapons to ensure its survival.
"President Kennedy, who was assassinated on November 22, 1963, was dead-set against Israel becoming a nuclear power." http://www.presstv.ir/detail.aspx?id=79142§ionid=3510203
"Paul: I don't think there is such a thing as an independent Israel doing anything, because I think no matter what they do its our money, its our weapons, and their not going to do it without us approving it and if they get into trouble we're going to bail them out, so there is no separation between the two." http://www.presstv.ir/detail.aspx?id=79752§ionid=3510302
S. posted this link in my comments here and it certainly deserves my attention.
"Troen structures his work chronologically, moving from the earliest Jewish settlements in the last third of the 19th century to the present. He argues that what characterized the early Jewish settlements was their communitarian, anti-individualist impulse. It is this desire to create communities that Troen stresses and analyzes in depth in the first part of his work. He calls these settlements "miniature commonwealths" or, following the Puritans, "covenantal societies." His invocation of the Puritans is not accidental. While he acknowledges that most accounts of early Zionist settlement trace the communitarian impulse back to European socialist or communist roots, Troen argues that Zionist communal thinking had its origins in the "religious experience, imaginations, and predilections of early planners and pioneers"(p. 6)."http://www.shma.com/bookreviews/hart.htm
As another commentor here says, the "Communitarian Party" has a website now. They include many religious views, the UN Declaration of Human Rights, and post things like: "For several years, on many fronts, champions of greater responsibility to the community have become something of a new force in American life. They think of themselves as "communitarians," though so far there is no registry of communitarians and no formal association. Nevertheless, their influence is real enough, and so are their objectives: to evolve public policies, moral norms, and regulatory guidelines that will correct what they perceive as excessive, "radical" individualism." This Christian Democracy Diagram (on the left) was posted by the blog's author as "helpful when trying to explain to people where I stand."
Maybe I need to design a new diagram that helps explain where I stand.
I made this chart called Big Mother's Gameplan: Checkmate sometime back in 2003 (maybe, not sure exactly when). Not that I expect it will help the people who insist on creating their own labels for me. For the record, I'm that little block on the bottom labeled "uncooperatives." Notice how close I am to being stomped on by the faith based initatives.
What's abundantly clear to me now is, according to certain watchdogs, I am not allowed to use any resourses or link to anyone they deem unnaceptable. If I link to someone they mistrust it means they don't have to consider anything else I write. How utterly convienent for the communitarian globalists.
Funny how my British readers never seem to be offended or insist I'm stiring up hate for the English people when I expose the British Empire's role in creating global governance (the new accepted term). Reminds me of when I was told by a Sandanista Nicaraguan in 1984 that he didn't hate the American people, he just hated our imperialist government and their CIA-Mossad mercenary policies in Central America.
