The headline over an article in Ha-aretz by Bradley Burston on Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s poker game with President Obama was If Obama wins in November, is Netanyahu in trouble? That’s a question I’ve had in my own mind for quite some time and it begs another. What, really, worries Netanyahu most - the prospect (not real) of Iran posing an existential threat to Israel or the prospect (real) of a second-term Obama?
There is, Burston wrote, something new in the air, something Netanyahu does not like. What is it? “American conservatives have begun to think out loud that Barack Obama will win in November.”

In 1959, Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz liberated Cuba from imperial America, police state rule, and mafia bosses who turned the nation into a casino and brothel.
Cubans may want change, but won't tolerate recolonization under puppets serving Washington's interests.
On August 13, Fidel turns 86. After leading Cuba for decades, surviving hundreds of US attempts to kill him, a punishing embargo, and numerous other hostile acts, illness forced him to step down in December 2008.
It didn't slow his determination to speak and write vital truths, especially on issues of war and peace.

Besides persecution, repression, and injustice, deprivation defines life in Occupied Palestine. Essentials fall way below minimum standards.
Shortages and crises affect water, sanitation, electricity, fuel, and vital healthcare when most needed.
On March 14, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) headlined, "Occupied Lives: Switching off hospitals," saying:
Gaza's hospitals, including al-Shifa (Gaza's largest medical complex), "fac(e) severe difficulties in providing basis services...." As a result, the right to health and life are undermined. "Such problems have been a consistent feature of life in the Gaza Strip since the current closure was imposed in 2007."
