The Truth of God and Our Lord Jesus Christ

Special Palestine Cry Blog articles: The Catholic Creed: The meaning of the Pasch of Christians.


For as it was not possible that the man who had once for all been conquered, and who had been destroyed through disobedience, could reform himself, and obtain the prize of victory; and as it was also impossible that he could attain to salvation who had fallen under the power of sin,-the Son effected both these things, being the Word of God, descending from the Father, becoming incarnate, stooping low, even to death, and consummating the arranged plan of our salvation, upon whom [Paul], exhorting us unhesitatingly to believe, again says, "Who shall ascend into heaven? that is, to bring down Christ; or who shall descend into the deep? that is, to liberate Christ again from the dead." Then he continues, "If thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shall be saved." And he renders the reason why the Son of God did these things, saying, "For to this end Christ both lived, and died, and revived, that He might rule over the living and the dead." And again, writing to the Corinthians, he declares, "But we preach Christ Jesus crucified; "and adds, "The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? " - St. Irenaeus, Against Heresies, Book III, Chapter XVIII, Section 2.

The Crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ, Mary and John and the women at the foot of the Cross

Matthew 27:45 Now from the sixth hour, there was darkness over all the earth, until the ninth hour.

Origen tell us this darkness was only in Palestine, and the neighbouring countries: for as to the words, over the whole earth, or over the whole land, we find one kingdom or empire, by a common way of speaking, called the whole earth, or the whole world. As to the cause of the obscuration of the sun; and secondly, as to the extent of its darkness. Origen tells us that the darkness was partial, and confined to Judea and the neighbouring countries, as the darkness of Egypt was only perceived in that country, and not in Gessen, where the children of Israel were. Saint Jerome tells us that the obscurity was caused by the rays of the sun being suddenly withdrawn by divine power, as was the case in Egypt. The darkness in Egypt during the Passover of Moses was due to God's protection withdrawn from that land at that time. The darkness when Christ was Crucified for us is the judgement of God upon His Son Jesus Christ, in our place. For Jesus Christ knew NO sin. He never sinned, nor could He ever.

The meaning of the Pasch of Christians.

The Book of Wisdom, Chapter 17, describes the devils and demons thrown back upon the Egyptians when the Israelites under Moses were brought out of Egypt by God for God’s purposes (to prepare a place for the Crucifixion of Our Lord for the Redemption of the whole world of those who are saved). In the same way the same false gods and goddesses that the Egyptians served and which in so doing were the reason the Egyptians sacrificed their sons and daughters to the devils and demons behind the false gods/goddesses were the spirits that killed the Egyptian children that perished when the Israelites were brought out of Egypt. God does not murder children, period. The angel of death which destroyed in Egypt was one of the fallen spirits. God did not cause any of the fallen spirits to hurt anyone. God allowed the fallen spirits to do what it is their nature do to when He brought the Israelites out of the gates of hell which was Egypt. The children below the age of reason that died went to be with God for eternity, they will be resurrected with the just at the Second Coming of Christ. This principle of God allowing the innocent to be afflicted along with guilty finds its ultimate fulfillment in Christ’s singular and only salvific Kenosis. Jesus Christ committed no sin, not ever nor could He, and was and is and only could be utterly and absolutely and completely innocent of any and all wrongdoing and sin by His very nature as the Holy and True God. The guiltless sacrificed by His own will for the guilty. Even when the innocent are afflicted by the actions and evils instigated by the fallen spirits in the world, the innocent are not possessed by those fallen spirits. The principle of all being afflicted by the evil set loose upon the world for its unrepentant sin will occur when the universal plagues are let loose upon the world. See Apocalypse 16

The principle of our always, for our part, protecting children is given us by Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 18

1 At *that hour the disciples came to Jesus, saying: Who, thinkest thou, is the greater in the kingdom of heaven?

2 *And Jesus calling unto him a little child, set him in the midst of them,

3 And said: Amen I say unto you, *unless you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, he is the greater in the kingdom of heaven.

5 And he that shall receive one such little child in my name, receiveth me.

10 Take heed that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you, *that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.

The principle of our ONLY worshipping the True God, the Father and the Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit is given first in the historical truth of the Garden of Eden when Christ, who is the Tree of Life commands the first man and his wife, Adam and Eve to not have anything to do with the tree of the knowledge of good and evil which is Satan, the first fallen angel, nor with any of the fallen angels with Satan. Assisi of Babylon/Vatican/Rome is absolute and complete violation of that principle and is the Great Apostasy in full blown Satanic evil. Have nothing to do with the Vatican or suffer its eternal damnation in hell with it. The devil and demon worshipping pagans and the perfidious deicidal Jews are not ever any part of the Salvific action of Christ upon Golgotha/Calvary. Individual pagans and Jews if they repent of their not confessing Jesus Christ as the Immortal Son of God become flesh for our sake and sacrificed for our salvation and who confess publicly their sin of devil and demon worshipping and perfidy and deicide and who beg the Lord of all, the Lord God, the Father and the Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit for forgiveness of their horrid and abominable sins, can and will be forgiven if they do so now in this life and will enter into the only path of salvation there is as dictated by God Himself. The Church, all the faithful – there is no other meaning acceptable to God for the word Church, is commanded by God to not have anything to do with the Apostasy.

Book of Wisdom, Chapter 17

1 For thy judgments, O Lord, are great, and thy words cannot be expressed: therefore undisciplined souls have erred.

2 For while the wicked thought to be able to have dominion over the holy nation, they themselves being fettered with the bonds of darkness, and a long night, shut up in their houses, lay there exiled from the eternal providence.

3 And while they thought to lie hid in their obscure sins, they were scattered under a dark veil of forgetfulness, being horribly afraid and troubled with exceeding great astonishment.

4 For neither did the den that held them, keep them from fear: for noises coming down troubled them, and sad visions appearing to them, affrighted them.

5 And no power of fire could give them light, neither could the bright flames of the stars enlighten that horrible night.

6 But there appeared to them a sudden fire, very dreadful: and being struck with the fear of that face, which was not seen, they thought the things which they saw to be worse:

7 And the delusions of their magic art were put down, and their boasting of wisdom was reproachfully rebuked.

8 For they who promised to drive away fears and troubles from a sick soul, were sick themselves of a fear worthy to be laughed at.

9 For though no terrible thing disturbed them: yet being scared with the passing by of beasts, and hissing of serpents, they died for fear: and denying that they saw the air, which could by no means be avoided.

10 For whereas wickedness is fearful, it beareth witness of its condemnation: for a troubled conscience always forecasteth grievous things.

11 For fear is nothing else but a yielding up of the succours from thought.

12 And while there is less expectation from within, the greater doth it count the ignorance of that cause which bringeth the torment.

13 But they that during that night, in which nothing could be done, and which came upon them from the lowest and deepest hell, slept the same sleep.

14 Were sometimes molested with the fear of monsters, sometimes fainted away, their soul failing them: for a sudden and unlooked for fear was come upon them.

15 Moreover if any of them had fallen down, he was kept shut up in prison without irons.

16 For if any one were a husbandman, or a shepherd, or a labourer in the field, and was suddenly overtaken, he endured a necessity from which he could not fly.

17 For they were all bound together with one chain of darkness. Whether it were a whistling wind, or the melodious voice of birds, among the spreading branches of trees, or a fall of water running down with violence,

18 Or the mighty noise of stones tumbling down, or the running that could not be seen of beasts playing together, or the roaring voice of wild beasts, or a rebounding echo from the highest mountains: these things made them to swoon for fear.

19 For the whole world was enlightened with a clear light, and none were hindered in their labours.

20 But over them only was spread a heavy night, an image of that darkness which was to come upon them. But they were to themselves more grievous than the darkness.

Prisoners On Hunger [Strike] Face Death In Palestinian Prisons

The Independent Commission for Human Rights (ICHR) is deeply concerned about the lives of detainees on hunger strike currently being held at the General Intelligence Detention & Interrogation Center in the city of Bethlehem and the possibility of deteriorating their health condition because of the strike, which began on Wednesday, 20/06/2012. On Monday, 25/6 / 2012, ICHR paid a visit to the detainees in the wake of their announcement to enter into an open hunger strike in protest against their arbitrary detention, although court decisions have been issued by the Palestinian competent courts to release them.
ICHR eagerly followed the issue of non-implementation of court decisions issued by the Executive that the non-implementation of court decisions is a crime punishable by law in accordance with Article (106) of the Palestinian Basic Law, which states that: “Judicial rulings shall be implemented.
Refraining from or obstructing the implementation of a judicial ruling in any manner whatsoever shall be considered a crime carrying a penalty of imprisonment or dismissal from position if the accused individual is a public official or assigned to public service.
The aggrieved party may file a case directly to the competent court and the National Authority shall guarantee a fair remedy for him.” It also considers arbitrary detention a violation of international conventions for the protection of human rights.

Accordingly, ICHR calls upon the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) to assume its responsibilities and the immediate release of all detainees in implementation of the court decisions and in line with the provisions of law and international conventions.
On the other hand dozens of Palestinians from Hebron demonstrated on Wednesday June 27 2012 against the PNA and in solidarity with the detainees at the Palestinian intelligence prison in Bethlehem, where four political detainees have been on hunger strike for nearly 10 days. They are Mohamed Al-Atrash, Mohammed Abu Hadid, Othman Al Qawasmeh and Moatassem Al-Natshe

The Palestinian authority “security forces” has prevented the media from filming the protest under the pretext that the event takes place in front of a “security” building.

Arrest Warrant Against Shaul Mofaz

Palestinian youth presented a memorandum for “arrest warrant” on Thursday June 28 2013 to the Palestinian Attorney General, demanding the arrest of israeli Deputy Prime Minister and war criminal Shaul Mofaz, (שאול מופז) at the moment when he enters Ramallah in the occupied west Bank to meet the Palestinian “President” Mahmoud Abbas on the next Sunday.
The request is an initiative of a Palestinian youth group calling them selves “Abna’a El Balad”, in English “Youth of the Country”. The representatives of the group delivered the arrest warrant to the Deputy Attorney General demanding that he arrest Mofaz.
The coordinator of the youth group, Ali Ibiadat said: “We came to the headquarters of the Attorney General to demand that war criminal Mofaz is arrested instead of being met by “President” Abbas.
He added, “Mofaz is responsible for crimes against our people in Gaza and the West Bank. He is responsible for crimes against humanity, war crimes and genocide. He led the siege imposed on President Yasser Arafat and caused his death and therefore he should be tried instead of being welcomed in our homeland”.

Outside of the court, a group of youth were stood in front of the Attorney General office which is only a few meters from the headquarters of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and the PLO headquarters. They were raising signs condemning Mofaz’ visit to Ramallah.
In the signs they wrote: “Welcoming killers is a shame on our Leadership”, “The Leadership must wake up”, “Yes to a trial of Mofaz instead of meeting him” “Shame on our leadership receiving killers”, “Trial him instead of receiving and welcoming him”.

15 Years Jail For Exporting Gas to Israel At Low Prices

On Thursday, June 26 2012 an Egyptian Criminal Court sentenced in Cairo to 15 years imprisonment each, former Minister of Petroleum Sameh Fahmi and fugitive businessman Hussein Salem. According to  judicial sources, the sentences were handed down in the case of the exports of Egyptian natural gas to Israel at prices far below market.
Both former minister Fahmy and the fugitive Salem were figures of the former Mubarak regime. Both were very close to the former dictator and their sentences were due to corruption and harming the countries interests in the case of gas exports to israel at prices far below world market price levels. Mubarak himself was sentenced to life in prison for failing to prevent the killings of protesters during the uprising last year.
Hussein Salem is a fugitive from justice and currently lives in Spain as he has a Spanish passport. He was tried in absentia.

American Fundamentalist and Drugs Trafficker is Deputy Health Minister

Yaakov Litzman (יעקב ליצמן) is a radical ultra-orthodox extremist and racist zionist from the USA, immigrated with his family from Poland and grow up in Brooklyn. In 1966, at age 17, he immigrated to occupied Palestine and is now the so-called “deputy health minister of israel”. Litzman has expressed his strong opposition to Israeli insurance companies giving health insurance to Palestinians in Israel. These so-called “Arab-Israelis” live in their own homeland, stolen and occupied by criminal foreigners like Litzman and renamed “Israel”.

According to dpa, the German news agency, israeli radio quoted Litzman on Thursday morning saying that “the Palestinians who receive treatment in Israeli hospitals will come and replace Israeli citizens”.

According to my knowledge Litzman is involved in trafficking drugs. He hides behind the long beard typical of jewish religious extremists , intended to confer him respectability in israeli society, and a ministerial post. On Tuesday, June 05, 2012, the Israeli police found marijuana in his car (a government car) after his driver hit a stone wall in Jerusalem while driving the vehicle.

Bundesrat - Duzdar: Verwaltungshaft verstößt gegen Recht auf persönliche Freiheit und ein faires Verfahren

(PDF Entschließungsantrag)

Wien (OTS) – “Seit 1. Februar befinden sich 27 palästinensische Abgeordnete in israelischer Haft, davon 24 in ‘Verwaltungshaft’, die eine unbegrenzte Anhaltung ohne Anklage erlaubt”, erklärt SPÖ-Bundesrätin Muna Duzdar heute in ihrer Rede im Bundesrat. 2008 erreichte die Zahl der inhaftierten Abgeordneten mit 48 – rund einem Drittel der Mitglieder – den Höchststand. Aus diesem Grund sprechen sich die Mitglieder des österreichischen Bundesrates in einem Entschließungsantrag, eingebracht von Muna Duzdar, Stefan Schennach, Günther Köberl, Josef Salier und Efgani Dönmez, für die weltweite Achtung und Einhaltung menschenrechtlicher und rechtsstaatlicher Prinzipien aus.

“Wir wollen mit dem Entschließungsantrag darauf hinweisen, dass mit der ‘Verwaltungshaft’ gegen grundlegende Menschenrechte wie das Recht auf persönliche Freiheit und auf ein faires Verfahren verstoßen wird und fordern daher die Freilassung der Gefangenen beziehungsweise die unverzügliche Anklage vor Gericht”, so Duzdar.

“Es ist unsere Aufgabe als Parlamentarier, uns solidarisch mit allen demokratisch gewählten Abgeordneten dieser Welt zu zeigen. Abgeordnete als Vertreter des Volkes müssen besonders vor politischer Verfolgung geschützt werden”, betont Duzdar. Denn Konflikte auf dieser Welt zeigen, dass gerade Abgeordnete immer wieder politisch zur Zielscheibe werden. Aus diesem Grund genießen in vielen Ländern der Welt Parlamentarier eine funktionelle Immunität, um sie vor Strafverfolgung in Bezug auf Handlungen in Ausübung ihrer Funktion zu schützen.

“Daher müssen wir unsere Ohren spitzen und sehr aufmerksam sein, wenn Abgeordnete wegen ihrer politischen Meinung und Haltung verfolgt und inhaftiert werden”, sagt Duzdar. Auch der Vorsitzende der SPÖ-Bundesratsfraktion, Gerald Klug, bekräftigt, dass “Unrecht, egal von welcher Seite ausgehend, angesprochen werden müsse”.

In “Verwaltungshaft” sitzen jedoch nicht nur Abgeordnete, sondern rund 300 Palästinenser, Duzdar verweist in diesem Zusammenhang auf den Fall des ehemaligen palästinensischen Fußballnationalspielers Mahmoud Sarsak, der im Juli 2009 am Weg zu einem Spiel am Grenzübergang zu Israel festgenommen wurde und seither ohne Anklage im Gefängnis sitzt; er trat im März in den Hungerstreik ein. Darauf folgte am 17. April ein Massenhungerstreik von 2.000 palästinensischen Gefangenen. “Lediglich der Fall des Fußballspielers konnte medial für Aufmerksamkeit sorgen, nachdem sich UEFA und FIFA weltweit für seine Freilassung eingesetzt haben”, betont Duzdar und wünscht sich eine breitere öffentliche Debatte zu diesem Thema.

Summer of 2012: Film Festival, Opera, Concerts, Dancing and Food

The summer in Vienna has a special feeling, smell, colour and joy: film festivals, Concerts, Opera, Dancing and Food. Yearly, the city of Vienna makes everything possible to have a special summer in the square before the City Hall, a special summer for all Austrians and the increasing number of guests from outside who will watch classic as well as modern musical highlights.

The city of Vienna stated that the film festival 2012 on Rathausplatz will start on 30 June and last until 2 September 2012.Read more about this year’s film festival in the programme released by the city hall.

The film festival on Rathausplatz takes place for the 22nd time this summer and shows selected classical music concerts and, for the first time, also some top pop music acts on the large screen. The food stalls are open daily from late morning and provide the visitors with an international selection of delicious foods and drinks. The popular jazz brunch on Sundays also forms part of the film festival again this summer.

Highlights of the programme: 47 productions will be shown on 65 evenings. Admission is free. Music lovers can enjoy a classical as well as a modern concert each week. The programme includes productions from the Vienna State Opera and the Zurich Opera House such as “Carmen” and “La Bohème”, as well as this year’s New Year’s concert of the Vienna Philharmonic.

Dance and operetta enthusiasts should look forward to “Coppélia”, “The Nutcracker”, and “Alice in Wonderland”. Fans of modern music will be excited about this year’s pop music highlights on Rathausplatz including “Adele – Live at the Royal Albert Hall” and “Anastacia plays Avo Session”.

Technological innovations: After switching to HD and putting up stands for an audience of more than 1,000 in 2007, the film festival on Rathausplatz boasts further technological innovations this year: the screen has been enlarged to 300 square metres, and two additional loudspeaker towers are put up for a perfect sound experience.

Cooperation with Viennale: The film festival on Rathausplatz has invited Viennale to a guest performance on occasion of its 50th anniversary and will show three classic concert films, among them Martin Scorsese’s “Shine a Light”.

OFID Awards Palestinian Ex-Detainees. Where Is the Money?

At a time while the Palestinian Authority continues its rampage of arbitrary arrest of Palestinian civilians throughout the occupied West Bank, jailing and detaining hundreds of academics, university students, lecturers and professors as well asdozens of Palestinians released from the israeli occupation gulag, incarcerating them in hellholes like the prisons of Jericho, Hebron and Beitunia … under the shameful project labeled “smile and hope campaign”.
While the PNA continues to smear the reputation of these Palestinian detainees, actually the intellectual and middle class, as “lawbreakers”, “criminals”, “wanted for crimes” etc., the “Minister” of Prisoners Affairs at the PNA, Issa Qaraqa, received on last May 14 2012 an award of US$ 100.000,- purposed towards the rehabilitation of the ex-detainees of the Israeli occupation. The Award was announced and handed by the OPEC Fund for International Development (OFID) to “Minister” Qaraqa during a ceremony held in the Austrian town of Seefeld in Tirol.
The “Ministry of Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs” of the PNA and its Ex-Detainees Rehabilitation Program (EDRP) won the OFID award of 2012.
OFID’s highest policy-making body, the Ministerial Council, held its 33rd Annual Session yesterday in Seefeld, Austria, to review performance and set policy for the Vienna, Austria-based institution for the coming year.
The questions are:
  • How will Minister Qaraqa and his ministry rehabilitate the Ex-Detainees and prisoners while the ONLY “rehabilitation” which has been seen from the PNA is rearresting dozens the ex-detainees (Palestinian political prisoners abducted by Israel) only to hold them in dungeons under inhuman conditions. Are the PNA prisons a new money-making project, cashing in awards such as the  Ex-Detainees Rehabilitation Program (EDRP) award?
  • Has “Minister” Qaraqa ever visited the PNA prisons and talked to the prisoners? 
  • How will “Minister” Qaraqa distribute the award? Will go to the PNA jails and divide the award money between the academics, university students, lecturers, professors, doctors, engineers etc. … held without charges and for no crimes at all at the Ramallah, Beitunia, Jericho, Hebron, and Nablus prisons?
  • What “rehabilitation” project will “Minister” Qaraqa realize with the EDRP award while he keeps silence on his own role in the arbitrary re-arresting of the ex-detainees, and keeping silent about the fact that he himself is encouraging these re-arrests?
Are the PNA jails where prisoners are tortured using illegal and immoral methods of torture now “rehabilitation projects” which is why they were awarded the “EDRP” by OFID? If not, it is only legitimate to ask where the money of the award is going, since “Minister” Qaraqa has remained silent about this, and also no announcements whatsoever about this award have been made in Palestina.
Further details about the award which minister Qaraqa received for the so-called project of rehabilitation (EDRP) is published below. It should be noted the PNA newspapers published in Palestine have not reported even one small paragraph about the respected and generous award of the OFID, for “unknown” reasons.
Rehabilitation Program for former Palestinian detainees wins 2012 OFID Award for Development

Dr. Suleiman Al-Herbish
The Director-General of the OPEC Fund for International Development (OFID), Mr. Suleiman J. Al-Herbish, today officially announced that the OFID Annual Award for Development, 2012, will go to the Palestinian Authority Ministry of Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs and its Ex-Detainees Rehabilitation Program (EDRP). The Award will be presented at the forthcoming 33rd Annual Session of the Ministerial Council of OFID to be held in Austria, June 14. The Palestinian Minister of Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs, HE Mr. Issa Ahmed Abelhamid Qaraqe, will receive the Award.
The EDRP of the Ministry of Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs focuses on the economic and social rehabilitation of former detainees and their reintegration into Palestinian society. Mr. Al-Herbish said the award was in recognition of the role the EDRP plays in caring for Ex-Detainees and their families. He asserted that a large component of the core efforts of EDRP is targeted toward the families of prisoners, especially the women and children with special needs.
Mr. Al-Herbish stated that the work of EDRP is in accord with OFID’s overall objectives in ensuring the sustainability of dignified life for the Palestinian society and that “the program aims at achieving a long-term solution in rehabilitating societal groups by providing a solid framework which has a rippling affect within the entire community.”
In his own statement when informed about the award, HE Mr. Issa Qaraqe thanked OFID for the recognition and said that the money would be used to further assist various services within the framework that the EDRP provides to applicants through 15 local centres in the West Bank and in Gaza. The Program has to date provided rehabilitation services directed toward 18,000 prisoners. These services include a College Education facility for Ex-Detainees; Vocational Training Service; Loan Services; Health Insurance; and finally Psychological Counselling to ex-detainees as well as family members to further enable a positive environment for the family nucleus.
The OFID Annual Award for Development was instituted in 2006. It carries a prize of US$100,000. Among the winners are HUMANA People-to-People, a Zimbabwe-based NGO, Austria-based NGO, SOS Children’s Villages, the Grameen Bank of Dhaka, Bangladesh, Bartolina Sisa’s of Bolivia; Yéle Haiti Foundation; and last year’s award was accorded Dr. Al-Hajri, a philanthropic UAE ear surgeon.
Over the last 36 years, OFID has provided more than US$135 million in assistance for 451 operations in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. All operations have been implemented through partnerships with international and regional development organizations and more than 83 Palestinian NGOs in the West Bank and 145 NGOs operating in the Gaza Strip.

Impeach The United States Government

With love – Chelli - June 14 2012- That’s right.  Impeach em.  Cease em.  Adios.  Go away.  We could certainly do better than this.
You know that old story, the one of building upon foundations?  Well, it goes like if you build on a bad foundation you won’t last.  But if you build on a good foundation it will weather the test of time.
The United States was built on a foundation of mendacity in its highest form: the outright objection to respecting anything that wasn’t theirs and the trying to make theirs everything.  A foundation of murder, of horrific and as yet unceasing crimes against the Indigenous communities of this Land, and the capitalistic devastation against the Land – yes all these things form the foundation of the United States.
War is another part of this foundation.  War and violence both.  What is the definition of war?  What does it mean to never cease warring?  Ask that of the United States government and you’ll be met with a stone-walled silence and a back-handed slap.
Violence is unceasing in this culture.  War after war; a foundation of slavery, slave trade, and kidnapping.  Perhaps this stems from the thought that Capital is the bottom line – or even a God to this culture and age.  If you need more money and the money is the most important thing, then steal some more money, is basically what the United States government has been saying – and doing for many centuries now.

Today the United States government and its unending warring has bankrupted the world’s economy.  The United States government also continues to pollute abjectly despite being decried so often by citizens and governments of many countries, while simultaneously actively constantly promoting the continued and absolutely mindless use by its citizenry of far more than their fair or just share of the “resources” on the Earth.
This “Great Experiment” is truly a polluted strain.  Therefore we call for the Impeachment of the United States government as a failure and criminal who needs to be stopped. Read more.
