19 Nov 2020 – I left the US in 2008 not because of pressure but because I thought I could serve humanity better in Zionist occupied Palestine than in Zionist occupied USA. I hope to die in Canada and atone for my stupidity and culpability in paying taxes to the USA, the most well-oiled killing machine in history, by teaching peace studies and promoting pacifism, which I think is the only force powerful enough to overcome the US’ super weapons.

A Comic Display of Geopolitical Subservience: Mike Pompeo’s Visit to Israel
Richard Falk | Global Justice in the 21st Century – TRANSCEND Media Service, 23 Nov 2020

22 Nov 2020 – On the entirely inappropriate and distasteful visit of the U.S. Secretary of State to Israel for three days.
