Evolution of Dispossession

Evolution of Dispossession
How to Steal a Country?

I remember reading this story when it first came out. The dry cleaner offered the client a few hundred dollars to buy new pants. The judge said no. The dry-cleaner then offered $4,000 for a pair of pants. The judge still said no. He sued. It was dismissed, but so too was the judge.

That a person can be a part of the judicial system them pursue this ridiculous frivolous litigation staggers the mind.

I am glad he lost his job. He should not be in a position to render judgements against others if he thinks like this.

Speaking of Justice.
Gosh it’s been almost a year since Ms. Tove Johansson from Stockholm, an International Solidarity Movement worker had her faced smashed by 100 Jewish settlers in Hebron. Some of you may remember that while she and some of her fellow volunteers attempted to escort some Palestinian children to school safely in Hebron they were surrounded by 100 racist goons who after showering them in spit, chanted in Hebrew “We killed Jesus, we’ll kill you too!”. Then one of the settler/thugs stepped forward and smashed a bottle across her face, breaking her cheekbone, fracturing her skull and damaging her eye muscles. I just sent ISM some money to assist them in continuing their efforts in Ms. Johansson’s name and encourage others to do so as well.

I have a blog with the picture of Tove on this site somewhere.

Or it might be on my old site, logipundit. In fact, I think it is there.

That incident was really disconcerting.
