I wish there was peace, I still support a two state solution. He had this to say about Palestinians, and how indifferent they are to their own people: In Jericho we were joined by a Palestinian journalist who works with the New York Times. He's no Zionist. He wants to live in a Palestinian state coexisting with a Jewish state. After our meeting he said to us that 24 years later the Palestinian Authority has an interest in the status quo, in not resolving the political impasse. The Palestinian Authority is corrupt, he said... building palatial homes within eyesight of refugee camps, paid for by foreign money. He told us that none of these leader ever set foot in refugee camps. What kind of people, what kind of leadership, would tolerate five generations of refugees and blame it all on the Jews?! Would the Jews tolerate leadership like that, that condones generation after generation of Jews, living in squalor, forgotten by their own leadership that presumes to act and speak on their behalf? Would Americans tolerate this? Would the French? The British? Hirsch told of his group's trip to Yad Vashem in Jerusalem and reflected on the question the Holocaust memorial raises: why the allies did not bomb Auschwitz in 1944 (a theme that Laurence Zuckerman dealt with in the Nation ).

Spoiler: it will profit billionaires while bankrupting and killing thousands of Americans. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go "House Republicans appear closer than ever to repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, after the House Freedom Caucus formally endorsed a revised version of the GOP health care bill and moderates looked to be largely going along with the changes. It’s still a real question whether Republicans have the votes. There were almost enough moderates publicly opposing the health care bill before an amendment worked out between co-chairman of the moderate Tuesday Group Tom MacArthur (R-N.J.) and Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) dragged the legislation even further to the right. But those changes, which would significantly undermine protections for people with pre-existing conditions, have won over a large swath of conservatives.

US Senator for the State of Vermont Bernie Sanders joined a labour union gathering on Capitol Hill in Washington DC, Wednesday, to rally for an increase to the minimum wage. Sanders was accompanied by New York Senator Chuck Schumer in calling President Trump and the Congressional Republicans to pass a law legislating for a $15 (€13.70) an hour minimum wage, as well as for greater union rights. “We are here today to remind them that a seven dollar and 25 cents minimum wage is a starvation minimum wage. Nobody can live on seven and a quarter, you can’t live on eight, you can’t live on ten dollars an hour," said Sanders. "And that is why we are saying that after ten years of inaction the United States Congress is gonna raise the minimum wage to a living wage of 15 bucks an hour,” continued the senator. The two Democratic senators spoke to the union workers on the Hill ahead of the reintroduction of a bill called “The Raise the Wage Act of 2017” that will be unveiled later on that day and will be enforced by 2024.

The forging of joint action, the creation of a broad anti-terrorist front which Putin proposed in the UN in September 2015, above all is being prevented by political ambitions and double standards." SOT, Sergei Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister (Russian): "The recent US missile strike on Shayrat airbase in Syria, which became a gross violation of international law and an act of aggression against a sovereign state on the contrary aggravates an existing problem and removes the prospect for the establishment of the broad anti-terrorist front. And I can draw a parallel with the events of 2003 in Iraq which ended up with the destruction of the country and emergence of ISIS. I don't think that there is a need to explain to this audience what dangerous development could take place, including outside of the region, which could provoke the repetition of similar, to put it mildly, reckless steps.

As Pablo Picasso once said, and as I now whisper to myself at my computer, "Every act of creation is first an act of destruction." Including these videos of makeup being crushed into dust. "Makeup Breakup" is the brainchild of beauty bloggers Kat and Hailey, who run the Beauty News YouTube channel. As far as we can tell, it's the first makeup destruction series of its kind and the videos, in which Kat and Hailey steadily crush expensive blushes, eyeshadows, and stick foundations with a small metal knife, are mesmerizing.
