in the beginning

My reason for studying the family history was to find the truth. For many years as a youngster I had listened to stories of treasure ships, pirates and spies. The stories seemed more exciting than books like 'Treasure Island' and 'The Scarlet Pimpernel'. As with all legends, there is a thread of truth. However, the obsession with the family history I soon discovered was not spurred by the excitement of discovering where the treasure lay hidden, or proving our links with Frederic Chopin, or even our Royalist connections. No, these crazy pursuits all came much later. The family obsession began with John Francis Chopin my great grandfather. He , like myself, wanted the truth. He was brought up as an orphan when his parents died tragically while he was still an infant.

I have to say this!........

Like a spoilt child that middle eastern despot who is called Benjamin Netanyahu has publicly demonstrated that he is not seeking peace in what is loosley called the Palestinian situation. This situation could more aptly be called the Israeli situation since over the past 12 years the palestinians have demonstrated they, against overwhelming odds, are determined to find a peaceful situation. Israel on the other hand have retaliated like a fat podgy bully, in opposition to Palestine being granted partial membership to the UN, by witholding Palestinian money and enforcing the building of up to 6,000 homes on Palestinian land. Such a move will destroy the hopes for any future peace initiative. This is yet another case of a flagrant disregard for international law.

Benjamin Netanyahu is not only a bully, he must also be sick in the head as most despots are.
