Photo Article: storm clouds over the Greek Hovel

Just in case you think that I am suffering in 33 degree heat every day...

The clouds gathered yesterday afternoon over the Taygetos mountains behind me. I was hoping for a deluge. My olive trees would love it and there is something truly comforting about sitting inside your nice warm, dry hovel as the rain lashed down outside. Besides which it would have cooled the air making sleep that much easier at night. So what if the mud track to Kambos would become like the Somme? I have navigated it before in such a state.

In the end the rainfall was short and modest. The rain was warm, I'm sure my trees were grateful but it did not exactly live up to its billing as storms go.

Queers for Palestine and against Israel but it sure is not vice versa as Al Qaws discovered last week

On the left wing madrassas that are the Universities of the West and in other epicentres of liberal and progressive thought support for Palestine and opposition to Israel, ranging for demands to boycott it, the drumming out of Israeli lecturers and calls for a Palestinian state “from sea to sea”, i.e the destruction of Israel are mainstream. Anyone opposing this virtue signalling will soon discover, as did uber-liberal US chat show host Bill Maher last week, that they are soon lumped in with the wicked Jews amid calls for their career destruction.
