Bet this is something the main stream media will not be talking about.
One of the strongest American allies in Southeast Asia has embarked on a campaign of mass murder on its own citizens, at the behest of its president.
President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines—designated a “Major Non-NATO Ally” by the U.S. State Department—is pushing an anti-drug campaign that includes encouraging law enforcement and even civilians to kill drug users and dealers on the spot. And he will pardon anyone who takes part in the killings.
In Duterte’s July 25 State of the Nation address he said, “If you know of any addicts, go ahead and kill them yourself as getting their parents to do it would be too painful.”
During the election campaign earlier this year, Duterte estimated 100,000 people would be murdered during his campaign, and fish would grow fat from feeding on bodies dumped in Manila Bay.
This reign of terror has already seen more than 400 people summarily executed by police and others since May. Bodies are being found with cardboard placards saying, “I am a drug pusher” or “I am a drug addict.” Relatives and village residents are pictured weeping from the violent loss of their loved ones.
Police plan to proudly display their “success” by erecting a billboard outside their Manila headquarters to keep track of all the drug-related executions.

Yesterday, I posted (and then removed) a brief commentary on Georgia Congressman Hank Johnson’s verbal attack on Jews living in Judea and Samaria as “termites.” I reminded him that Hamas calls Jews “apes and pigs,” (similar to what Blacks are called by racists who hate us), and that Hitler called them “rats” shortly before he began exterminating them. A friend interjected that, in Rwanda, the Hutu’s began calling the Tutsi’s “cockroaches” before the bloodletting began in 1994. I rebuked the Congressman, and said that he had disgraced himself and shamed us all; and that Dr. King was turning over in his grave. I stand by that. However, I want to address the issue even more troubling than Mr. Johnson’s words, and that is, the context in which he uttered them.
According to multiple sources including the Freebeacon, Congressman Johnson referred to Jews as insects at, “an event sponsored by the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, an anti-Israel organization that galvanizes supporters of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, or BDS.”
Why is a United States Congressman attending a BDS conference? Not a “Middle East Peace” or “Two-State Solution” conference – a Boycott Divest & Sanction conference? Both Republican and Democratic lawmakers have condemned BDS as simple hatred for Israel, and an obstacle to peace. In his June 2015 piece, “BDS and Hamas: The New Partnership”, Arab-Israeli journalist Khaled Abu Toameh said that, “Hamas believes that such tools are no less important than rockets and suicide bombings, which have thus far failed to achieve the goal of wiping Israel off the face of the earth.”
Calling Jews living in their 3,000+ year old indigenous homeland, “termites” is beyond reprehensible. Calling Jews living in their 3,000+ year old indigenous homeland, “termites” at a conference dedicated to the destruction of the Jewish homeland is incitement. Surely the Congressman is aware of the fact that the stabbing, shooting, and vehicular assault of Israeli civilians by Palestinian terrorists continues unabated, and is spurred on by language like his. If he does not know this, it is all the more reason why he should educate himself beyond anti-Israel propaganda.
