#MowingLawns #Marriage Wives just don’t get why lawns are so important to men.
Honestly, I am not sure why lawns are so important to men either, but I do know that the lawn is the front line in manhood. Machismo. Masculinity. Gallantry.
I remember the first time my dad showed me how to mow the law. Of course, back in the early 1960s, we didn’t use a gas mower. That was too costly. We used a push mower, with blades attached to the wheels that turned when you pushed and the wheels turned.

#Racism #SaveArabChristians #UHLF Arab Knesset leader denounces Israeli racism
The Deputy Speaker of the Israeli Knesset Ahmad Tibi, a Palestinian Israeli elected to the Knesset representing Israel’s oppressed Arab minority, told an American audience on Friday May 5, 2017 that Israel’s government headed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is racist, discriminatory and practices Apartheid in the military occupation of the West Bank, Gaza Strip and occupied Jerusalem. Tibi said he supports Two-States but believes that Netanyahu and his racist allies are doing everything they can to prevent equality for non-Jews and achieving peace. He called those in Netanyahu’s government who denied the existence of Palestinians to be “anti-Semitic.”

#MediaBias Arab American journalists face industry bias
Arab American journalists continue to be targeted by racism and discrimination that dominate the mainstream American news media. America’s journalism industry is driven by an unethical and unprofessional growing trend by American media outlets to exclude any voices that are critical of Israel. It’s the main reason why there are so few Arabs working at mainstream American media or publish Op-Eds in the U.S. Media. American Arab journalists can strengthen the fight for justice for the Arab World in America, the one country in the world that has the most impact on the future of the Arab people and Arab culture

#Poll #MiddleEast #ArabNews #YouGov Arab News & YouGov expose US ignorance of Middle East
A new poll by the Arab News and has exposed a major flaw in the understanding that American shave of the Middle East. This is remarkable because in the past two years, more Americans have died because of the Middle East than as a result of any other world region. The depth of this lack of education is shocking, and explains why American minds are so easily manipulated by Israeli propaganda and anti-Muslim and anti-Arab racism
