Forgotten hero: Senator Wayne Morse against war in Vietnam


Sen. Morse was one of only two Senators (!) who opposed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, which authorized  President Johnson to take military action in Vietnam without a declaration of war.

The Tonkin Resolution was the official start of the Vietnam war.

The war brought death to millions of civilians and several hundred thousand soldiers, not to speak of the wounded, the crippeled and the mentally disturbed.

Israel - Zitat des Tages

 At times it seems as if what Jews do to other jews in this country [Israel] would be defined in any other country as nothing less than antisemtisim.

David Grossman
(Israelischer Autor. Man vergleiche das mit einer nicht untypischen Äußerung eines ultra-orthodoxen jüdischen Siedlers: "The Israeli secular entity has to be destroyed. God can't reveal himself until it's all wiped out. As long as the state of Israel stays as it is, there will be no redemption." Shmuel Ben Yishai, Settler, Hebron (Interview CBS Frontline April 2005). Was der Siedler hier verlangt ist nichts weniger als die Beseitigung des Staates Israel.)
