    ONLY hindsight is 20/20 and it will take many years to get a real picture of where our world is heading. However I have no doubt that Putin's Russia has played and will play a very central role in laying the groundwork for the next decades of international political turmoil. I can't think of ONE SINGLE action that Putin has taken in the past 7 years that has contributed to World peace or stability of any region in the world. Islamic fundamentalism WILL NOT resolve itself, that is a FACT. Not only has Putin hindered anyone or any-country who has recognized the need to combat Islamic Fundamentalism, BUT Russia has actually enabled and indirectly aided the seeds of struggle to flourish. The consequences of Actions taken today by Putin and Russia will not only be realized by the History books that our Grandchildren will learn, but by the dangers that our grandchildren will face. Old School Soviet Hypocrisy with a generous measure of haughtiness makes Putin a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Why the Jewish establishment won’t condemn the occupation

Unless more U.S. Jews who oppose the occupation become members of established Jewish organizations and donate money, the establishment is unlikely to heed calls of those who want it to condemn the occupation.
