arab spring chickens steady coming home to roost...,

guardian | The United Nations general assembly voted overwhelmingly on Thursday to recognise Palestine as a state, in the face of opposition from Israel and the US.

The 193-member assembly voted 138 in favour of the plan, with only nine against and 41 abstentions. The scale of the defeat represented a strong and public repudiation for Israel and the US, who find themselves out of step with the rest of the world.

Thursday's vote marked a diplomatic breakthrough for Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas and could help his standing after weeks in which he has been sidelined by Palestinian rivals Hamas in the Gaza conflict.
Abbas, who flew from Ramallah, on the West Bank, to New York to address the general assembly, said: "The moment has arrived for the world to say clearly: enough of aggression, settlements and occupation."

Wow, selective filters we have here. Susan Rice = evil..African dictators and warlords including Qadaffy financed and killed tens of millions Africans but they good because they build aqueducts and ish...Roman tyrants built aquadects and Imperial Japan build bridges and infrastructure also...

African dictators and warlords are not our elected officials and policy
makers. They are not on MSNBC, CNN or C-Span demonstrating how they piss
on American tax payers and continue to excrete broken policies.

Telling a police officer that he's using selective filters on you for
robing a bank when there are many other bank robbers out there doing the
same thing and worse, only serves as an obstruction delaying the
responsibility of your own business.

Is the work also related to the pdf file?

In the way that the words meditate and medicate are related to one another, not being cryptic about it, just succinct.
