Eminent American Scientist: Syrian Chemical Weapons Attack Was STAGED George Washington
Kushner: Palestinians not yet capable of governing themselves Al Jazeera. Um, one reason that Palestine enjoys so much support in the Arab worlds is that various kingdoms hired Palestinians as official advisers. They would then plead the case of their people while doing their jobs. If they had bombed as rental bureaucrats, it’s unlikely that advice of other sorts would have been listened to.
