Naim Stifan Ateek

5 Star — The Bible As Jesus Intended — for All, Not Some

From the Foreword by Walter Brueggemann:

QUOTE (xv): Thus, almost all of the information (misinformation that we receive in the West is filtered through Zionist ideologicial interest that holds in thrall much of the Christian community in the United States and consequently that holds in thrall US policy as well. In that articulation the current plight of Palestinians is kept invisible and the legitmate claims of Palestinians, ground in historical and social reality, are left without articulation.

QUOTE (xvii): Ateek’s reading of the Christian gospel is a move from “some” to “all,” a rejection of privileged tribalism, and a prospect for a just peace in which all parties may participate.

QUOTE (xix): This book is a venture in truth-telling advocacy.

5 Star Brilliant and unique truth telling from three points of view: Arab, French, US — an Indictment of Empire

I have been a deep admirer of the intelligence and integrity and local knowledge as well as strategic acumen of  Thierry Mayssan ever since he accurately understood 9/11 as an inside job, long before I did.

Obama’s Unending Wars – Fronting the Foreign Policy of the Permanent Warfare State

A Book Review

In his conclusion Kuzmarov writes,

Though packaging himself as a peace candidate, Obama ultimately proved indispensable to the military-industrial complex in his ability to sustain the illusion of humanitarian intervention and defuse anti-war activism.”

Kuzmarov’s thematic idea is well presented and well supported.  His writing is easy to follow and each section has a clear, well written summary highlighting the ongoing message of Obama’s complicity with the warfare state.

This is a summary review of a 741 page book that is so very important, so comprehensive, that I feel compelled to go far past my normal 4-6 page review and offer the enlightened and skeptical readers a 40 page summary with quotes and links.

My INTENT is to inspire purchase of the book even if only to browse multiple chapters. David Icke has produced a master work. The index alone is an education. I am the author of this review and have previously published it free online at https://phibetaiota.net, my personal blog. I have given myself permission to republish this as a Kindle for the convenience of those who love Kindle.

There are three kinds of holistic thinking: secular, ecological, and cosmic. With the exception of David Icke I know of no one, anywhere, who actually thinks holistically at all three levels (I fall short at the cosmic level).
