Doctorine of Discovery: How the Pope legitimized the theft of land from Naive Peoples, Segment 1

4 giorni 5 ore ago
This talk explains the origins of the Doctorine of Discovery. This is the legal basis that was used to justify the theft of non Christian people’s lands by the authorization of the Pope. This doctrine is called a Papal Bull. Spanish Sovereigns agreed to finance Christopher Columbus but how would they finance the trip? In 1492 they were able to overwhelm the last Muslim community in Grenada and expropriate their property. Also they decided to expel the Jews. While Columbus was in a port in Western Spain getting ready to make his trip to the Americas literally next to him are ships full of Jews whose property has like the Muslims been taken by the crown and they use that wealth stolen from these people in order to finance his trip.

This Week In Palestine: Mazin Qumsiyeh on “Mayhem vs. Sanity in Western Asia…Why Palestine is still the issue”, Segment 1

4 giorni 16 ore ago
This week our Palestinian voice is that of our old friend Professor Mazin Qumsiyeh, who never fails to challenge us with the depth of his political analysis. Today we feature Mazin speaking to the Jerusalem Fund in Washington, DC on May 22, 2018. His subject: “Mayhem vs. Sanity in Western Asia…Why Palestine is still the issue.” In this extraordinarily wide-ranging speech, Mazin observes that almost every nation in the world is a colonizer or colonized, depending on whether it has nuclear weapons. He views the entire 8000-year history of homo sapiens as a mere click away from ending. This is neither the first nor the last time you'll hear Mazin's wisdom on This Week In Palestine. Mazin is an MD geneticist who taught at Duke and Yale Universities before returning to his home in Beit Sahour, Palestine where he continues to teach at Bethlehem University and Birzeit University. He is also the founder and director of the growing Museum of Natural History at Bethlehem University. It's clearly a labor of love, for which he accepts no pay.

Taylor Report: The NATO social-democrats, Segment 1

5 giorni 3 ore ago
The U.S. is going through an emotional meltdown about people who might be meddling in their affairs. At the same time, we read in the NYT that U.S. officials have met several times with Venezuelan army officers that are described as "renegades" over whether or not a military coup should occur against Maduro. Yves Engler describes the activities of the "Lima Group" that plans Venezuela's destabilization via funding opposition forces and information warfare. Canada's social-democratic party, the NDP, has either remained silent or overtly supported the U.S./Canadian attempts to overthrow a social-democratic government. At the same time, who is paying attention to the soft coup in Brazil against popular president Lula? Not the NDP. Engler explains that the NDP largely follows the corporate media in determining its foreign policy. That's a reason why it no longer follows its own doctrinal policy to get out of NATO. Engler details long history of pro-militarist positions upheld by the NDP. He also discusses George Grant's role in promoting a kind of liberal Canadian nationalism that ends up supporting empire. The missionary language of "doing good" in the world always leads to buying more ships and planes in order to spread Canadian goodness throughout the world. In this way, Canada is a willing "sub-partner" in U.S. exceptionalism.
