All of this, and yet people are still thinking that arming the opposition in Syria is a good idea. (it isn't.)

West oversteps UN mandate in Libya than acts surprised when Russia says no more. Completely predictable

True +Morgue McMillan but in this case, Russia never did. The US would be more guilty of that hypocrisy re: Israel/Palestine and the use of that veto

+Rick Santorum said today that pre-natal screening leads to more abortions, and implied it's part of an anti-Biblical health care agenda from President +Barack Obama.

This made me mad enough to write up and publish the very personal account of how my wife would have lost our otherwise healthy daughter halfway through her pregnancy, if it weren't for pre-natal screening.

Eliminating pre-natal screening, and other maternal health care that Santorum opposes (i.e. medicines and procedures that can be used for abortion, but can be used for other things too) would set health care for mothers and babies back 50-100 years.

Please re-share if you find Santorum's position as odious as I do!
CBS News reported today that Rick Santorum criticized President Obama's health policies requiring medical insurance plans to provide free prenatal screening. Santorum said, "...free prenatal ...

MA'AN Development Center presents a new video on Palestinian herders. Palestinian herders and Bedouin in the Jordan Valley face innumerable difficulties trying to lead their life. They face violence from settlers and soldiers, in addition they face constant restrictions on their life. These restrictions are intended to entice the Palestinians of the Jordan Valley to leave "voluntarily" so Israel can claim absolute control over the territory. Despite all these problems and restrictions, the Palestinians in the Jordan Valley remain on their land.

So would intervention be political or humanitarian? Probably a bit of both. Either way it is a bad idea

المستوطنون يعتدون على أحد الرعاة في الأغوار

اعتدى مجموعة من المستوطنين الاسرائيليين على أحد الرعاة الفلسطينيين قرب مستوطنة (محولا) الواقعة في شمال الاغوار.
فبينما كان الشاب محمد دراغمة "20 عاماً" يرعى أغنامه في الجبال بالقرب من مستوطنة "محولا" في صبيحة يوم الجمعة 3-4-2012. هاجمه مجموعة من المستوطنين بالعصي والهراوات وانهالوا عليه ضرباً. وبحسب المصادر الطبية في عيادة عين البيضا (القرية الفلسطينية القريبة من المستوطنة). فإن الشاب دراغمة أصيب برضوض في أنحاء متعددة من جسدة, واصابة مباشرة في الرأس. لكن حالته الصحية مستقرة الان.

"محولا" هي من أكبر المستوطنات الاسرائيلية الزراعية في الأغوار الشمالي.
وقد تكررت هذه المشاهد في الاونة الاخيرة. فالمستوطنون يعتدون بشكل متكرر على رعاة الأغنام الفلسطينيين في المنطقة. وكذلك يهاجمونهم في بيوتهم وتجمعاتهم القريبة دون حماية من أحد, بل وفي كثير من الأحيان بحماية من جيش الاحتلال
