Doublespeak duplicity conceals tyranny. Democracy is verboten. It’s not tolerated. Hardline rule is policy. So are social injustice and anti-worker practices. Egypt’s new constitution establishes Islamofascist rule. Junta power heads it. Repression confronts resisters. Morsi claims dictatorial executive powers. Constitutional rights don’t matter. Nor does press freedom. Security forces can detain protesters indefinitely.

Imprisoned or free, Palestinians have no rights. Racism is policy. So is institutionalized persecution and violence. Arabs are despised. Israel calls them sub-human.
Israel persecutes them for not being Jews. Praying to the wrong God is criminalized. Hunger strikers defy Israeli lawlessness. Abstinence is their only weapon.
The misery and torment that befell Newton can be multiplied a thousand fold across the Arab world. American policy and actions have resulted in the deaths (i.e. murder) of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of innocent children. The deaths of these children can be considered as war crimes and a crime against humanity of the highest order. They should shock and outrage us, compelling us to demand an immediate change in American foreign policy.
Richard Falk singled out 13 companies profit-making in the Israeli settlements including Hewlett Packard, Motorola, Volvo and Caterpillar. Support Boycott!
Cameron came from nowhere with Jewish money behind him. He’s a self-declared Zionist, a rabid Israel-firster putting Israel’s interests ahead of the UK interests.
The Israeli government knows that it cannot be forthright and say that it wants Americans to go to war with Iran so that Israel can steal southern Lebanon. But if fear over nonexistent nukes can muster the Western populations to support an attack on Iran, Iran can be eliminated as Hizbollah’s supplier, and Israel can steal the water from Lebanon.
There is no discussion whatsoever of the real agenda anywhere in the US print and TV media. I doubt there is any discussion anywhere in Europe, which is a collection of american puppet states.
Fanatical Jews hone in on Al-Aqsa while Abbas seeks UN recognition for Palestine. In both directions, tensions rise. This week, Israeli authorities allowed a large number of fanatical Jewish settlers to enter and tour Al-Aqsa Mosque’s esplanade. The settlers, dressed in religious attire and wearing kippa head-caps, were protected by a heavy police presence.
Israeli sources said the aim of the provocative intrusion into one of Islam’s holiest sites was to “assert Jewish rights in the Temple Mount”, using the Jewish name for the Haram Al-Sharif — or Noble Sanctuary — of Jerusalem.
Roger Waters, founding member of the British rock band Pink Floyd, has announced that he will join Pulitzer Prize-winning author Alice Walker, civil rights icon Angela Davis, and others on the jury of the Russell Tribunal on Palestine (RToP), taking place in New York City, October 6–7, 2012.
I have often said and written that in some important respects America is the least democratic country in the world because what passes for democracy there is for sale to the highest bidders (the Zionist lobby being one of them). It’s now apparent that former President Jimmy Carter agrees. Judge Richard Posner said: “Our political system is pervasively corrupt due to our Supreme Court taking away campaign-contribution restrictions on the basis of the First Amendment.”
Uri Avnery argues that Israel’s Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defence Minister Ehud Barak, and their sycophantic parrots in the media and the political establishment, are leading Israel to disaster, just as Golda Meir and Moshe Dayan did in 1973, except this time it could be much worse.
Monday night, shortly after controversial ads purchased by anti-Islam and anti-Palestinian activist Pamela Geller began running in 10 New York City subway stations, several of them were altered, subverting their intended message.
Hundreds of billions went to Fannie, Freddie, AIG, the automakers and others. At the same time, millions lost jobs, homes and futures. Who cares about them when only money power and helping corporate favorites matter.
One failed program followed another. Economic duress deepens. Current US median income is lower than when the National Bureau of Economic Research declared recession over in June 2009. Perhaps for Wall Street, not Main Street.
Record numbers of Americans need food stamps. More join their ranks monthly. Real unemployment approaches 23%. Average unemployment duration is near a record high.
America never treated Muslims respectfully. US media and Hollywood play lead roles. How many more millions will die before The New York Times and other media scoundrels acknowledge decades of US mass murder?
Young Palestinian activists in the Gaza Strip ask their peers in Great Britain and around the world to build the global Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement and attend the UK Student Palestine Conference at the University of Manchester on Sunday, September 23.
He’s undisciplined, unchecked, and unambiguous. He never knows when to leave well enough alone. He makes more enemies than friends. He’s a consummate loudmouth bully. He hurls unrestrained verbal assaults. More on that below.
Barack Obama is afraid of the political shadow to his right and will not move against even the most psychopathic actors, especially at election time. Our leaders will do nothing to address our own behavioral and policy shortcomings. Thus, the dangerous likelihood of more provocations igniting the deep anti-American anger in the Muslim lands will go on and on.
Apparently, Americans are the first people in history who are so idealistic, or so thoroughly brainwashed, that they prefer to pay for wars and bail out banks than to make their mortgage payments and help their children with student loan debt.
Has Al-Qaeda – defeated by the Arab revolutionaries who demanded dignity rather than a Bin Laden Caliphate across the Middle East – now decided to cash in on populist grievances to advance their Islamist cause?
Obama caved to AIPAC and other Israeli Lobby organizations. Pandering to Lobby pressure and Israeli lawlessness is policy. Palestinians don’t matter so ignore them. Spurning international law is OK.
Obama goes all the way to AIPAC just one day before he welcomes Netanyahu. Listen to what he says about Shimon Perez and his Hagana involvement.
Israeli navy attacks international observers, injures Palestinian, on monitoring boat in Gaza waters
Israeli naval warship attacked the international observers and Palestinian captain of the Civil Peace Service Gaza (CPSGAZA) boat Oliva, injuring its captain in an apparent attempt to capsize it.
Netanyahu: If Hamas joins the Palestinian government, we will not hold negotiations with the Palestinian Authority….The peace process can only advance while maintaining security arrangements, which is becoming more difficult in light of the current situation in the region.
Burning mosques, burning vehicles, settlers appear to have a blank cheque to harass and aggress Palestinians, writes Khaled Amayreh in occupied Jerusalem.
Like Saleh, President Obama, the Sultan of Drone massacres in the Arab and Muslim world. has betrayed his every promise as well as having shred the American Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the civil liberties of the American people.
Israeli settler violence against Palestinians and the Israeli state’s failure to adequately respond to it highlight an important aspect of the Israeli occupation’s Apartheid-like policies.
The settlers don’t give a damn about international opinion – no more than does al-Qaeda, to which they have an unsavory resemblance. Led “by fundamentalist religious leaders who do not recognize the state of Israel and its laws,” they are driven by religious fanaticism and have no respect for governments or their agents. It is their ideological conviction that all of Palestine (including, by the way, Jordan) must be Jewish as soon as possible.
Uri Avnery views Newt Gingrich’s parroting of the old Zionist propaganda line that there is no such a thing as a Palestinian people – a line now discarded by most Zionists – and argues that the US Republican presidential aspirant is not only being provocative, but is also doing immense damage to US national interests.
What is so bizarre about the Obama campaign’s hostility toward those who oppose aid to Israel is that Israel doesn’t need U.S. assistance to begin with. Israel, the region’s only nuclear power, has by far the strongest military capability in the greater Middle East, and it possesses the only significant domestic arms industry in the region.
Israeli Occupying Forces (IOF) have arrested nearly 470 Palestinians since 18 October 2011 , when 477 Palestinian political prisoners were released in exchange for captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit as part of the first phase of the prisoner exchange deal concluded by the Israeli government and Hamas authorities.
This episode reveals yet again just how pernicious is this manipulative use of “anti-Semitism” to intimidate people out of questioning U.S. policy toward Israel. Part of the problem is that most liberal writers, bloggers and pundits – especially the non-Jewish ones – are petrified of getting anywhere near the word “Israel.”
In a cheap effort to procure Jewish votes and money, Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich has claimed that the Palestinian people is an invented people.
Israeli Jewish hate rally against Africans in Tel Aviv caught on video as Haaretz deletes article about it
Rally against Sudanese refugees in Tel Aviv, calling to “restrict their movement” and set up concentration camps.
Israeli Jewish hate rally against Africans in Tel Aviv was caught on video as Haaretz deletes article about it.
Israel’s Gaza offensive cannot be legally justified by any right of self-defense and instead constitutes aggression and a forcible deprivation of the Palestinian people’s right to self-determination.
Journalism has become “corrupted” by editors and reporters who value the prestige of being associated with important centers of power more than the uncensored practice of their craft. There is a crisis of legitimacy within the mainstream press, a rightful crisis of legitimacy.
Is President Barack Obama aware that Israel’s existence has never been in danger and chooses to ignore the truth of history for self-serving political reasons, or whether he is ignorant.
