Subject: the latest in propaganda...



 Eric/All,

1) It was online yesterday at the link below, but have seen nothing on TV.

2) Yes, its about oil, but the effect on Israel is more problematic. The
U.S. spends $1 billion of our taxes per day for the military, Iraq war cost
excluded, but how many suicide bombers per day can  a billion Muslims send
to Israel?

3) And, if we refuse to blame this mess on God, what, in the Lyotardian
spirit of  personal responsibility and obligation, is to be done, and how
legitimized?

regards,
Hugh
