Palestinian Al. Rowwad Children’s Theater Production of “Children of the Camp”

This featured presentation was filmed for the L.A.Steel Television Show in 2005 when the Al.Rowwad Children’s Theater toured the U.S sponsored by Palestinian and Human Rights advocates to bring attention in the U.S to the plight and genocide of Palestinian people living as refugees in the open air prison camp of Gaza with millions of Refugees. The brutality and unlawful acts against the Palestinian people by the Israelis and their army have devastated Palestine and killed hundreds of thousands by brutality and outright genocide. The Al.Rowwad Children’s Theater was founded as a creative expression for the Palestinian children imprisoned in the Refugee camp of Gaza to express their anger and show their plight and the injustice of the Israeli occupation of Palestine. Also to express the world condemnation of the Palestinian genocide. Since 2005 the genocide has been increased by the Israeli and U.S government and the recent 2018 U.S withdrawal of humanitarian aid to Palestine and centering the U.S embassy in Jerusalem has undermined the entire peace negotiations.

This program took place in 2005, these children have all grown into adulthood, and are still under siege in Gaza. Some are engaged in the ongoing protests, others have moved on to universities and careers, and left Palestine unable to return. Gale Courey Toensing was one of the American sponsors for the Al.Rowwad tour in the U.S and brought the production to Connecticut. In part two of this program we interviewed her and the directors of the theater group . This is a rare opportunity to see a great performance of the play “Children of the Camp”. Since 2005 little progress for peace has been made for the Palestinian people, except only to get worse.

Journalist and Palestinian activist Gale Courey Toensing passed away this year, but she and others like her will always be remembered for their advocacy and humanitarian efforts to bring public awareness to the plight of the Palestinians and the injustice being done to them by Israel and the U.S. All nations in the U.N except the U.S have condemned Israel for its genocide and apartheid racist government. Recently in 2018, the U.S withdrew from the U.N Human Rights Council because they can no longer advocate for Human Rights if they continue to support the Israeli occupation and genocide of the Palestinian people.

I hope viewers will enjoy this program and share it with their friends and families and see and understand these children and adults as they define through theater their personal sufferings and those of all the Palestinian people under occupation.

DEVIL’S BREATH A Video Poem About 9/11/01 And BLOOD RED A Video Poem Of Revolution

devil's breath and blood red


Devil’s Breath was created several days after 9/11/2001. The backdrop was the first tribute ceremony in New York City to honor the 3000 lives lost by the attack on the World Trade Center. It was a terrible event in American History that changed the world and destroyed the Middle East and U.S relations ever since, with two ongoing wars which have lasted 16 years.

Proof The Massive Data Collecting on Americans Began After 911

911 2018

The video recording of Edward Snowden referred to in the following post published on 6/14/13 has been taken down from It was an interview with Edward Snowden explaining the unconstitutional and illegal use and scope of NSA surveillance immediately after 9/11/01.


Proof The Massive Data Collecting on Americans Began After 911


Edward Snowden wasn’t the first whistleblower to talk about the NSA spying on everyone in the United States, but he is the first whistleblower, who was taken seriously by the international and national media. G.W Bush authorized the unconstitutional and illegal use of the new system in 2001 after 911 and classified it to cover up his illegal action. When the system designer William Binney discovered it was being used for domestic surveillance he went public to disclose the illegal use of the program. It was designed only to surveil foreign countries and foreign visitors who were suspected of terrorism. William Binney’s public disclosure of the system was muted and censored by the national media and his complaint went nowhere. He was never arrested, or charges brought against him, and the program continued and expanded into what the NSA has now, and what Edward Snowden has successfully brought out to the public.

Americans cannot allow these unconstitutional and illegal spying activities to continue. Please listen to this video, and learn what the NSA and G.W Bush did and what Barack Obama is now doing, to build an illegal and bogus case against anyone in the U.S. It is Hitler’s dream, that has been operating against American citizens by the American Government since 911.

The following HBO video is a 2016 interview with Snowden, regarding the illegal government surveillance of all American citizens.  This video also shows how easy it is to hack a smartphone or other devices. The original 2013  interview I described above has been permanently removed from

My heartfelt congratulations to NIKE for having the courage as a corporation to create the new ad campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick.  They understand the rights of Athletes as well as anyone to protest the wrongs done by the U.S justice system to Black Americans. The Civil Rights Movement began by men and women refusing to obey the bogus laws that kept them down and discriminated against. Kneeling at the National Anthem does not disrespect America or the flag, it proves that Americans are a country of great laws and freedoms guaranteed to all by the U.S Constitution.

NIKE should never worry about their bold stand of Free Speech and the devoted fans of their athletic wear. A few overweight white men and women who wear Nike shoes or clothes can burn them all they want to. Nike is a brand developed from quality and sold to millions of people who respect the name and the quality products they make. If I were NIKE  I would rather see great world athletes wearing my products than some overweight white man or woman with bad feet, trying to look sporty in a new pair of Nike shoes, or God forbid Nike leggings. Let them burn their clothes, no one cares and only thinks they are stupid Trump Supporters, who would burn a $100+ pair of sneakers after they paid for them.

Few politicians in modern times have been so blatantly bloviated in the media as John McCain. His lifetime of politics has been marred with some of the most belligerent and ignorant statements ever made in a public arena. His “war record” proved he was not the wonder warrior he was portrayed to be. He was granted a pardon by Richard Nixon for war crimes and treason.  His incompetence as a pilot crashed almost every plane he flew including while in training and killed 138 sailors in a bad landing.  He finished near last in his class at the Naval Acadamy. He was the ultimate “war hawk” and voted for every war and invasion during his 30-year term as senator. The following link to tells the real story about John McCain’s military and political career.

Also, the following articles were previously posted on this site written by several other Veterans who exposed the hypocrisy and real personality of John McCain.

America and the world are far better off without St. John McCain, whose death has turned into a pre-midterm election hypocritical, hoopla memorial to the Republican Party and one of its worst members.

McCain only had no more than 10 combat missions before he got his ass shot down for not staying with his wing leader. He was a screw-up from Day One at the Naval Academy and never changed. He was not well liked and few would ever speak well of him. I was a Naval Aviator on a different carrier in the Gulf of Tonkin the year before McCain got captured.
For the real story about his Naval Squadron performance, check this:

The real John McCain treachery, killing the chances of POW/MIA’s left behind, is detailed in this long article that was released while he was running for President in 2008:

Navy Releases McCain’s Records

 USS Forrestal, July 29, 1967 – The worst accident aboard a US Navy surface vessel since WWII

BY WAYNE MADSEN/WAYNE MADSEN REPORT The Navy released John McCain’s military record after a Freedom of Information Act request from the Associated Press. The record is packed with information on McCain’s medals and commendations but little else. The one thing that the McCain campaign does not want to see released is the record of McCain’s antics on board the USS Forestal in 1967. McCain was personally responsible for the deadliest fire in the history of the US Navy. That catastrophe, with 27 dead and over 100 wounded trumps McCain’s record as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam. WMR has learned additional details regarding the deadly fire aboard the Navy aircraft carrier, the USS Forrestal, on July 19, 1967, in the Gulf of Tonkin. The additional details point to then-Lt. Commander John McCain playing more of a role in triggering the fire and explosions than previously reported.

On January 16, 2006, WMR reported that according to a US Navy sailor who was aboard the Forrestal on the fateful day of the fire, “McCain and the Forrestal’s skipper, Capt. John K. Beling were warned about the danger of using M-65 1000-lb. bombs manufactured in 1935, which were deemed too dangerous to use during World War II and, later, on B-52 bombers. The fire from the Zuni missile misfire resulted in the heavy 1000 pound bombs being knocked loose from the pylons of McCain’s A-4 aircraft, which were only designed to hold 500-pound bombs.” WMR further reported, “The unstable bombs had a 60-second cook-off threshold in a fire situation and this warning was known to both Beling and McCain prior to the disaster.” WMR also cited the potential that McCain’s Navy records were used against him by the neo-cons in control of the Pentagon, “The neo-cons, who have had five years to examine every file within the Department of Defense, have likely accessed documents that could prove embarrassing to McCain, who was on board the USS Forrestal on July 29, 1967, and whose A-4 Skyhawk was struck by an air-to-ground Zuni missile that had misfired from an F-4 Phantom.” WMR has been informed that crewmen aboard the Forrestal have provided additional information about the Forrestal incident. It is believed by many crewmen and those who have investigated the case that McCain deliberately “wet-started” his A-4E to shake up the guy in the plane behind his A-4. “Wet-starts”, done either deliberately or accidentally, shoot a large flame from the tail of the aircraft. In McCain’s case, the “wet-start” apparently “cooked off” and launched the Zuni rocket from the rear F-4 that touched off the explosions and massive fire. The F-4 pilot was reportedly killed in the conflagration. “Wet starting” was apparently a common practice among young “hot-dog” pilots. McCain was quickly transferred to the USS Oriskany (the only Forrestal crewman to be immediately transferred). Three months later, McCain was shot down over North Vietnam on October 26, 1967.

As WMR previously reported, at the time of the Forrestal disaster, McCain’s father, Admiral John McCain, Jr., was Commander-in-Chief of US Naval Forces Europe (CINCUSNAVEUR) and was busy covering up the details of the deadly and pre-meditated June 8, 1967, Israeli attack on the NSA spy ship, the USS Liberty. The fact that both McCains were involved in two incidents just weeks apart that resulted in a total death count of 168 on the Forrestal and the Liberty, with an additional injury count of 234 on both ships (with a number of them later dying from their wounds) with an accompanying classified paper trail inside the Pentagon, maybe all that was needed to hold a Sword of Damocles over the head of the “family honor”-oriented McCain by the neo-cons. WMR has also been informed by knowledgeable sources, including an ex-Navy A-4 pilot, the “wet-start game” was a common occurrence. However, it is between “very unlikely” and “impossible” for the Forrestal “wet start” to have been accidental. “Wet starts” were later rendered impossible by automated engine controls. Wayne Madsen reports on military and political affairs in Washington at his website,


THE TRUE MILITARY RECORD OF JOHN MCCAIN WRITTEN BY AN ACTIVE MARINE. This article was written by an active, unnamed Marine and, first published on this site on 9/3/08. It was also published by the founder of the Corner and sent to me during the 2008 Presidential Race. It is a true account of McCain’s real war record and evidence of his lack of fitness for the office of President.

” McCain has never really earned anything. He is from a wealth pampered background and not fit to lead this nation.   A “war hero” doesn’t finished 894th out of 899 and still get stationed at a Navy champagne unit and promoted ahead of all but two of his 898 other classmates.

A “war hero” doesn’t crash three U.S. Navy jets out of sheer incompetence and ineptitude, including two during non-combat training sessions. A “war hero” doesn’t get written up on drunk-and-disorderly, fraternization, disobeying orders, and insubordination charges more than two dozen times in less than three years. A “war hero” doesn’t get promoted to squadron commander of the airfield named after his own grandfather immediately after crashing his third airplane. A “war hero” doesn’t have all the military records that cover his time in Vietnam and all disciplinary actions against him censored and sealed “as a matter of national security.” A “war hero” doesn’t get 28 medals awarded all after-the-fact “for bravery” for no other reason than being shot down and captured and then go on a celebrity public relations tour because he’s the son of two acclaimed Navy admirals. A “war hero” doesn’t repeatedly cheat on the wife who’s back in the states waiting for him, and then cheat on her more when he returns to the states, and then divorce and abandon her. A “war hero” doesn’t systematically vote against every single pay and benefits increase for military and veterans throughout his entire political career, all the while claiming to be “the soldier’s Congressman,” and then take credit for the passage of a G.I. benefits bill he voted AGAINST.

A “war hero” McCain III lost jet number one in 1958 when he plunged into Corpus Christi Bay while practicing landings. He was knocked unconscious by the impact coming to as the plane settled to the bottom. McCain’s second crash occurred while he was deployed in the Mediterranean. “Flying too low over the Iberian Peninsula,” Timberg wrote, “he took out some power lines [reminiscent of the 1998 incident in which a Marine Corps jet sliced through the cables of a gondola at an Italian ski resort, killing 20] which led to a spate of newspaper stories in which he was predictably identified as the son of an admiral.” McCain’s third crash three occurred when he was returning from flying a Navy trainer solo to Philadelphia for an Army-Navy football game. Timberg reported that McCain radioed, “I’ve got a flameout” and went through standard relight procedures three times before ejecting at one thousand feet. McCain landed on a deserted beach moments before the plane slammed into a clump of trees.

McCain’s fifth loss happened during his 23rd mission over North Vietnam on Oct. 26, 1967, when McCain’s A-4 Skyhawk was shot down by a surface-to-air missile. McCain ejected from the plane breaking both arms and a leg in the process and subsequently parachuted into Truc Bach Lake near Hanoi. For 23 combat missions (an estimated 20 hours over enemy territory), the U.S. Navy awarded McCain a Silver Star, a Legion of Merit for Valor, a Distinguished Flying Cross, three Bronze Stars, two Commendation medals plus two Purple Hearts and a dozen service medals. “McCain had roughly 20 hours in combat,” explains Bill Bell, a veteran of Vietnam and former chief of the U.S. Office for POW/MIA Affairs — the first official U.S. representative in Vietnam since the 1973 fall of Saigon. “Since McCain got 28 medals,” Bell continues, “that equals out to about a medal-and-a-half for each hour he spent in combat. There were infantry guys — grunts on the ground — who had more than 7,000 hours in combat and I can tell you that there were times and situations where I’m sure a prison cell would have looked pretty good to them by comparison.

The question really is how many guys got that number of medals for not being shot down.” For years, McCain has been an unchecked master at manipulating an overly friendly and biased news media. The former POW turned Congressman, turned U.S. Senator, has managed to gloss over his failures as a pilot by exaggerating his military service and lying about his feats of heroism. McCain has sprouted a halo and wings to become America’s POW-hero presidential candidate.”
