Choose the way the wand might move ,To incur a curse or to be loved ,Ragged or dressed in the finest tulle. Frogs may leap all they wantFrom mire to dirt ,dirt to mireAlbeit…

The Jewish Oppression of Palestinians

Israel is running an apartheid regime in Palestine; no, this statement is not a hyperbole, it is not an exaggeration, it is a factual statement acknowledging the current reality in Palestine.

When diagnosing his patients’ complaints, Sydenham, by contrast, based his conclusions on careful, objective observation of symptoms and signs, and used the same approach to classify disorders. Sydenham’s…
