Military “solutions” do NOT work anywhere — including NOT in Israel-Palestine

April 3, 2024 GlenAnderson 0

Military “solutions” do not work! They only make problems worse. Each side’s violence against the other side provides an excuse for retaliation. We must stop the cycle of violence. We must understand the root causes and use honest diplomacy (not bullying and threats) to solve the underlying problems.   During the Cold War – and again now – each side’s fear of the other has led to an escalation of nuclear weapons that are more technologically sophisticated – and DESIGNED to make it easier to start a nuclear war.  I have written about practical steps toward reversing that.   We […]

Americans need to understand this about Israel’s genocide in Gaza

January 23, 2024 GlenAnderson 0

Many Americans seem to accept Israel’s current cruelty to Palestinians. Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu TOTALLY REJECTED a “two-state” solution.  He wants Israelis to dominate, with NO rights for Palestinians. Just now I wrote the attached analogy, which seems compelling. I encourage people to read and share it. Native Americans — Palestinians

MLK affirmed BOTH Israel and Palestine. Israel must return land it stole.

January 13, 2024 GlenAnderson 0

Martin Luther King, Jr., strongly supported peace, nonviolence, and social justice in many ways. He affirmed BOTH Israel and Palestine. He said Israel’s government must return the land it stole from Palestinian people. See this recent item reporting on what he had said in 1967: We Don’t Have to Guess What MLK Thought About the Israel-Palestine Conflict – Mother Jones

Israel and Palestine — Background and Context

November 30, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

The December 2023 TV program in the “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” series provides important background and context for the crisis of violence in Israel and Palestine that is going on at the end of 2023. The American people are alarmed by the news, but very few people understand the background and context in which the current violence arose.  If we understand that, we can urge our government to take actions that are smarter and more humane than what our government is doing now. This TV program opposes violence on all sides.  We oppose war crimes.  We need a ceasefire to stop […]

Israel’s war against Palestinian people VIOLATES and SERIOUSLY HURTS the Jewish faith!

November 23, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

One of the many reasons why I oppose the Israeli government’s war against Palestinian people is that Israel’s government is actually HURTING the Jewish faith by VIOLATING some of its core ethical values: The First Commandment says we must have no other gods besides the one true God.   But Israel’s government violates that commandment by worshiping the false idol of nationalism and the false idol of military violence.  I wish they would put their faith in God instead of military weapons. Other commandments prohibit coveting anything that belongs to our neighbors. But Israel’s government is breaking that commandment by coveting […]

Biden’s wars ANTAGONIZE VOTERS away from him. Polls show voters choose Trump as the PEACE candidate.

November 6, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

Democrats think Biden is a smart politician.  Actually, he — and the Democratic Party — are stupidly ANTAGONIZING VOTERS so they will vote for Trump instead in 2024.  The Democratic Party learned nothing from their 2016 debacle when the party imposed Hillary Clinton upon us. In early November 2023, several public opinion polls showed that VOTERS OPPOSE BIDEN’S WARS and think TRUMP WOULD BE MORE LIKELY TO PROTECT PEACE. Nov. 5, 2023:  Most Americans believe … U.S. would be kept out of war if Trump reelected: Nov. 6, 2023:  Voters think Trump’s more likely to increase peace in world […]

Recognize and Counter Mainstream Media Bias

June 24, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

The July 2022 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” provides fresh information and insights about a systemic problem that perpetuates war and all kinds of injustice.  This systemic problem also interferes with our efforts to solve all of the problems we care about. This TV interview is about bias in mainstream news media. Media bias is very pervasive – and because it is so very pervasive, it is often not even noticed.  It distorts what people know about vital issues such as war and peace, the economy, race, the criminal justice system, the climate, and all of the other important issues.  […]

Watch video recording of “Holding Israel Accountable: Remembering Rachel Corrie”

April 7, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

You can watch the March 16, 2022, event mentioned below at this link here on YouTube! On March 16, 2003, an Israeli military bulldozer ran over my friend Rachel Corrie, a young woman from Olympia, with whom I had worked on several peace-and-justice issues.  She was in Rafah, Gaza, nonviolently protecting a Palestinian family’s home from being bulldozed down in order to ethnically cleanse the area in order to make room for Israeli settlers to expand their occupation of Palestinian lands. Her family and friends created the Rachel Corrie Foundation for Peace and Justice (, and this Olympia-based organization has […]

The U.S. must stop arming dictators and human rights abusers

August 29, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

The U.S. has a very long history of arming dictators and human rights abusers. This was already going on long before the U.S. and Britain overthrew Iran’s democracy and installed the extremely brutal Shah of Iran in 1953.  The U.S. armed that brutal dictator throughout the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.  After the Shah’s demise, the U.S. armed Iraq’s Saddam Hussein so he could fight his war against Iran.  Then the U.S. violently overthrew him and armed many sides in the chaos that arose directly because of the U.S.’s war there.  In recent years the U.S. has armed MANY different factions […]

Myanmar’s coup — much info before and after — and insights into other issues

June 13, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

On February 1, 2021, the military of Myanmar (previously known as Burma) overthrew democracy and installed an extremely brutal military dictatorship.  The population has been protesting against that, so the military has been using extreme violence to suppress the resistance.  Most of the public’s resistance has been nonviolent, but — out of frustration — some people have been resorting to violence. Of course, this nation had been colonized by a European nation, so that background plays into the current crisis.  The nation exists in the context of other nations in that region.  Mainstream news media in the U.S. have been […]

This clever diagram can help us strategize how to change to a peaceful foreign policy.

November 12, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

For a very long time the U.S. had a “War Department,” but we conducted very few foreign wars. In 1947 Congress changed it to the “Department of Defense,” and we have conducted many, many wars since then, including our 2-decades-long Endless War against “terrorism.” Sensible people want to replace the U.S.’s chronically aggressive and violently militaristic foreign policy. The diagram linked here can help us figure out strategies for doing that.  It is fun to bring a few friends together to work through this exercise together.  Also, it can be useful for you to work with it alone.  Creative insights […]
