NoisyRoom By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood leader, Morsi, last week played the propagandized diplomat abroad for the masses. He claimed he was the one who created the ceasefire between Israel and Hamas with Hillary Clinton whimpering at his feet.

The Watcher’s Council The Israelis finally got sick and tired of having rockets, Iranian supplied missiles and mortars being fired at their civilians by Hamas and decided to do something about it. And as always, every time Israel defends itself, it’s somehow controversial. The whole scenario reminds me of the old movie ‘Groundhog Day.’ The […]

NoisyRoom By: Citizen Scribe From LaborUnionReport.com Please pardon me for borrowing the opening line from pastor Martin Niemöller’s condemnation of standing mute.
