Israel Museum returns art to Jewish artist’s heirs (AP)

In this picture taken Wednesday Sept. 7, 2011 an employee adjusts  the painting  'Die Heimkehr des Tobias'  ( The Return of Tobias)  by German-Jewish painter Max Liebermann (1847-1935)  at the Centrum Judaicum in Berlin. Israel's national museum has returned an impressionistic painting to the estate of its creator, the German-Jewish Max Liebermann.   The work was looted from the Jewish Museum in Berlin, where it was on loan from the artist, in the 1930. Following the end of World War II, the American-based Jewish Restitution Successor Organization (JRSO) collected orphaned art and distributed the pieces to Jewish institutions worldwide. Liebermann's painting was one of more than 1,000 works the JRSO delivered in 1955 to the Bezalel National Museum, the precursor to the Israel Museum.

              Tariq Ali: Were Obama’s Economic Reforms Too Weak?

              Complete video at: fora.tv Tariq Ali, author of The Obama Syndrome, critiques the Obama administration’s approach to the economic crisis. Ali argues in support of George Soros’ views that a much greater commitment to infrastructure spending was needed to stimulate the country out of recession. —– In 2008, Obama could do no wrong. To the educated middle class, he was an intelligent and reflective writer who had penned his own insightful memoir. To the conservative elite, he was a Harvard graduate and expert in constitutional law. To the young people who came out in droves to vote for him, he liked the same TV shows, listened to the same music and “got” social networking. To African Americans, he was the first black man to jangle the keys to the White House and command the empire built on the back of unacknowledged black slave labour. To the downtrodden and disenfranchised, he was a humble former social justice campaigner who had trod the streets of Chicago and drummed up support for local health and education programs. And then came the crash. The financial crisis saw Obama bail out the grubbers on Wall Street and fail to punish those who had caused millions of ordinary Americans to lose their houses, their jobs and the dream of Obama ‘the reformer’ charging in to rescue them from poverty and social humiliation. Could Hillary Clinton have done a better job? No, argues Tariq Ali, Obama is just doing what any politician in his situation would do. He’s a “skillful and
