Things Fall Apart

       The Falcon cannot hear the Falconer


Friedman, US, Israel, India

W. B. Yeats says
  “The best lack all conviction, while the worst
   Are full of passionate intensity.”

This is very evident from the latest post by Thomas L. Friedman in New York Times.

He found the statement of Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on why the U.S. should get tougher on Iran is churlish, reckless and, for the of Israeli-American relationship, quite dangerous.

Now it is a secondary question if the statement is churlish or the reaction of Friedman is churlish, or it would jeopardize the relationship or strengthen them if ever Israel achieve the sovereignty and statehood that does not depend on any external source and US elects Republican as President.

Some giants are like leeches, they suck petrol, which is tastier than blood, and those leeches have a spokesperson to glamorize their act of lechery by throwing the ashes into eye of others. To every person at the zenith the world appears to be flat while The World is Conical

To say that many University Boards are under pressure to divest from companies doing business with Israel puts a big question mark on the issues of morality and Ethical values of a country which is supposed to be World Super Power today.

When a common American is perplexed to choose a lesser evil (of all-political systems), it is churlish to have a biased opinion about the statement of a Premier of any country vis-a-vis to prospective relationship with the ruling party of that country. The Democrats have consistently failed on the Foreign-Front due to their greed oriented policies.

Mathew Arnold said, “Poetry is the criticism of Life”. When Religion and Philosophy fails, it is the literature that shows the path to the misguided mankind.

Alexander Pope in his poem “Ode to Solitude” says

“Happy the man whose wish and care
A few paternal acres bound
Content to breath his native air,
In his own ground”

Now to appease the Muslim community at large they have come forward as Messiah of Muslim Community by making arbitrary, instigating, irresponsible statements about injustice with them in biggest, secular democratic country of the World.

The Muslim community does not need any lip sympathy of Mr. Obama. They know how the youth of his own creed has fallen  prey to “White-Supremacy”.

William Butler Yeats says

"Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the center cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
  "

(In this analogy, the falcon represents society, and the falconer (who should be commanding the falcon) represents God or some equivalent source of intellectual and moral certainty. The falcon’s gyre is supposed to shrink as it comes nearer to the falconer, but instead the gyre is widening, suggesting that man or society is getting farther and farther from our objective or from God.)

US is full of apprehension and does not want to displease China at any cost, where Henry Kissinger has once sown the seeds of certain symbiotic relationship. On the Dias Dalai Lama was recently saluted in a cursory manner as if he is an ordinary Monk and not an incarnated Buddha.
