I feel like I’m in the minority in saying that I don’t care about Nelson Mandela. Maybe it has to do with my Cuban upbringing since I am the daughter of Cuban immigrants. What I do know is this: This man said, “From its earliest days the Cuban Revolution has been a source of inspiration for all freedom loving people.” Mandela knew exactly what that revolution led too. For decades the Cuban government did the same thing to Cubans as the South African government did to Blacks. Mandela also praised Cuba for its human rights. His hypocrisy was astounding. I’d never rejoice anyone’s death, not even Fidel Castro’s, I’m simply not moved by this man’s death. He did nothing for me, but sympathize with the leaders & ideology that continue to oppress my people.
Who Are the Palestinians?
The video dispels certain myths concerning the origin of the name ‘Palestine’ and of the ‘Arab Palestinians.’ It documents that the ‘Arab Palestinians’ are in fact mostly from other places, and migrated to what is now Israel at the same time as the new jewish residents in the last century, many of them because of the economic boom that the early pioneer Jews produced in what was then British Mandate Palestine.
The Jewish residents of mandatory Palestine did not steal the “best” land from Arab landowners but in fact purchased abandoned desert and swamp land from absentee Arab landlords who were quite eager to sell.
This was explained by Hajj Amin al Husseini himself. Husseini, father of the Palestinian movement, launched his fourth terrorist attack against the Jews of the Mandate in 1936-39. The violence was so great that the British sent a team to investigate. When questioned, Husseini admitted that the Jewish communities had not stolen anybody’s land but in fact had bought it.
In fact, Husseini had been among the major consolidators and sellers of land, and growing tremendously rich by it.

There is nothing anti-woman about being pro-life! Abortion does not empower women - it only creates a society where women are forced to choose between their future and their children. Sexual abuse can go unpunished and manipulation of women goes unchecked.
Pro-life is pro-woman.
This is pretty bad ass.A woman who chooses life is my hero.
A pastor in Seoul, South Korea has created a “baby box” for people so that people who would otherwise abandon or kill their newborns can leave them somewhere safe instead. The box has a light, a towel lining, and a bell rings as soon as a baby is placed in it so the pastor, his wife, or one of his staff can come and get it right away.
Lee Jong-rak started the box in 2009, and has welcomed all babies, often disabled or the children of single mothers, that have been placed in the box since. The babies are given a loving home, food, and shelter in his orphanage. Currently, an average of 17-18 babies are placed in the box every month.
One mother who had considered poisoning her baby before she heard about the Baby Box left her baby in the box with a letter pinned to his clothing that read:
‘My baby! Mom is so sorry.
I am so sorry to make this decision.
My son! I hope you to meet great parents,
And I am very very sorry.
I don’t deserve to say a word.
sorry, sorry, and I love you my son.
Mom loves you more than anything else.
I leave you here because I don’t know who your father is.
I used to think about something bad but I guess this box is safer for you.
That’s why I decided to leave you here.
My son, Please forgive me.’
