Hate, Murder, Imprisonment: Palestinian Career Paths, Guest Post by Martin Slann, April 7, 2017:
The approximately 3.6 million Arabs living in Gaza and Judea and Samaria are dominated by criminal regimes: the Hamas terror gang in Gaza and the corrupt Palestinian Authority (PA) based in Ramallah. Neither regime has expressed any concern with improving the economic infrastructure. Neither cares about the misery of the unfortunate Arabs in these areas. Both readily blame Israel for any and all troubles experienced by the general population. To insure that all are in agreement that Israelis are at fault for anything that goes wrong, teachers, journalists, and Islamic preachers are enlisted to blame the Jews for the fact that Arabs are economically poor and culturally stagnant.

The United Nations includes nearly 200 member-states. Most of these are (mis)governed) by dysfunctional and corrupt tyrannies that insist on making life for their own citizens as miserable as possible.

Posted February 10, 2017, by Mary Grabar: Read Booker T. Washington's autobiography, Up from Slavery, alongside Benjamin Franklin's autobiography. Both are written by important Americans and exemplify the can-do spirit, with entertaining and helpful lessons along the way. Booker T. Washington was born into slavery in 1856 and went on to found Tuskegee Institute and become an advisor to presidents and an internationally known advocate for black progress. Observing how slavery had instilled economic, spiritual, and intellectual dependence, he put his efforts into making freed slaves a viable part of the American economic system.
