Mandelstam by the Fence by György Faludy
clear

Translated from the Hungarian & Edited

by Thomas Ország-Land (October 2016)

György Faludy (1910-2006), a Jewish-Hungarian humanist, was a towering figure of 20th century European literature and a dominant voice of the anti-Soviet and anti-Nazi resistance. His work in English translation is just beginning to take its rightful place in the bookshops, lecture halls and libraries of the West.  more>>>

by David Solway (October 2016)

Deliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue

                                                                   Psalm 120

 

Slander is like a missile

that smites from afar.

When it is spoken in Mecca

it kills in New York  more>>>

Black Lives Matter
clear

by Richard Kostelanetz (October 2016)

“Black Lives Matter” is a misnomer, because the real purpose for those parading that slogan is holding police officers, usually Caucasian, responsible for killing black men disobeying the law. Cops don’t go to work planning to shoot some one; they are provoked. Remember that cops don’t even want to draw their guns, if only because they later must write a report explaining why.  more>>>

Rape in the Cave of Hira: Speculations on the Origin of Islam

by A. Human Being (October 2016)

Muhammad’s encounter in the Cave of Hira is exceptional in Islam, because it is in this experience that Muhammad first received revelation from Allah, through the intermediary of the Archangel Gabriel. This encounter, therefore, is understood as the pivotal human event of Allah communicating the Islamic message to all mankind through the agency of Muhammad.  more>>>

a demi-Rant

by Paul Austin Murphy (October 2016)

Let the UK Independent introduce us to contemporary conspiracy theories. Nick Harding writes

“The number of people who believe conspiracy theories is staggering. According to various recent surveys, a third of Brits believe Princess Diana was murdered (a Daily Mail survey), a quarter believe the moon landings were faked (from Engineering and Technology magazine), nearly half of all Americans do not believe global warming is man-made (a Yale University survey) and 84 per cent of them believe 9/11 was an inside job (a New York Times/CBS poll).”

by Joe Bissonnette (October 2016)

Among animals there are predators and prey. The first seeks and the other eludes. Obviously prey should try to make themselves as inconspicuous as possible so as to avoid the attention of predators, and yet prey often form into large groups which are easily detected.  more>>>

But you and I know that the land of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers has only been called Iraq during the last one hundred years. Before that it was once called Mesopotamia, Assyria, or Babylonia, or Chaldea, or Akkad or in the earliest of times, Sumeria.  more>>>

Consider the following academic argument.

Premise 1:   

It didn’t require an advanced education to produce the Shakespearean corpus.

Premise 2:

Anyone venturing an opinion about “Shakespeare’s” identity must hold a Ph.D. in English literature.

Despite numerous denials that Obama administration had wide-ranging dealings with the Muslim Brotherhood, it was indeed this administration with Hillary Clinton as its Secretary of the State Department which expanded a network of relationships with the Islamists.
