"Take your stinking paws off me, you damn dirty republicans!"

25-01-2004 21:49

I find the similarities between the pro-war republicans, who never seem to
see a war they didn't like, to the gorillas in the movie "Planet of the Apes".
Perhaps because the movie was made during the Vietnam war is the reason for
the striking similiarities. Then as in now, republicans were the pro-war party,
while the democrats were anti-war.

ISRAEL: Is An "Apartheid Wall" And A "Seperation Wall" The Same Thing?

25-01-2004 17:32

It is easy to find similarities between the Bantustans and the enclaves, in which Ariel Sharon intends to imprison the Palestinians in the course of his "unilateral steps".

The checkpoints and roadblocks, where Palestinians are held up while Israelis pass freely, fit into this picture
