Israel isn’t racist: Just ask black people. The one good thing to come out of Israel Apartheid Week is a letter from the Vanguard Leadership Group (VLG) that all but essentially calls Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) liars who seek to inflame and popularize the stereotype that Zionism is racism.
President Obama’s response to the serious deficit reduction proposals put forth by House Republicans, led by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.), was nothing more than a petulant variation on two tired themes – class warfare and blaming George W.
