  1. “A senior Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs official in the know on Israeli-US relations told Al-Monitor that in recent days Israel has been approached by senior officials in the Trump administration about a possible US policy initiative related to the region and to Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking. Trump’s staff is currently preparing his first official visit to Israel (apparently on May 22), yet these preliminary contacts were exploratory in nature. The US officials emphasized to their Israeli counterparts that no decision has been made yet by Trump’s Middle Eastern team and his associates, including secretaries of the State and Defense departments, head of the National Security Council, and advisers Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt.”

  2. Interesting.. a lot of reconciliation activities going on.. ”
    “Coptic Catholic Bishop Emmanuel Ayad of Luxor, the head of the organizing committee for the pope’s visit to Egypt, told Al-Monitor, “The restart of the Christian-Muslim dialogue does not mean that things are back to normal, but the visit of Pope Francis is a new breakthrough,” asserting that the visit pushed the dialogue forward.

    He said, “Now there is a genuine will to hold a sincere dialogue. The most important thing is to spread this culture of dialogue among Christian and Muslim populations.” He denied, however, that any direct agreement was reached during the visit on a mechanism to disseminate this culture among citizens, through sermons at mosques or churches.

    He added, “The feeling of anger among Christians following the twin Coptic church bombings will not discourage Christians from accepting interfaith dialogue. The bombings stirred anger among Christians and Muslims alike. The dialogue’s main objective is to create a common refusal of terrorism and extremism. This is the key for the success of the dialogue.”

      Great letter!

      It needs a little bit of editing, because the author keeps switching back-and-forth between addressing Ryno directly…to talking about him in the same paragraph.
      So that is a little confusing.

      Still a great letter, though.
      The ‘coarse language’ is really pretty mild…I was expecting it to be worse.

    Dear Treepers … I noticed many of you voicing irritation about Rush Limbaugh’s recent broadcasts. So I’d like to help by offering Sundance’s own words — pulled directly from today’s TCTH article entitled, *Explaining Why Republicans in Congress Need to Undercut Trump’s Budget Objectives, Wilbur Ross and NAFTA*

    “When Rush Limbaugh begins to tell his audience about the legislative construct within DC that is controlled by the UniParty apparatus, that’s a good thing. Because that level of understanding is what will be needed in the future if the larger U.S. electorate are ever going to comprehend the challenge and opposition. It does not matter that Limbaugh cites or recognizes our research and insight; what matters is that a larger audience begins to comprehend the scope and scale of the problem.”

    WHEAT just went through the roof due to the huge snow storm in the Mid-West. Better grab what you can in bread and pasta!


    PATRICK J. BUCHANAN (conclusion- excerpt:)

    Trump is being hammered as no other president before him, except perhaps Nixon during Watergate. It is hard to reach any other conclusion than that the mainstream media loathe him and intend to oust him, as they relished in helping to oust Nixon.

    If this war ends well for Trump, it ends badly for his enemies in the press. If Trump goes down, the media will feel for a long time the hostility and hatred of those tens of millions who put their faith and placed their hopes in Trump.

    For the mainstream media, seeking to recover the lost confidence of its countrymen, this war looks like a lose-lose.
