Lawrence Davidson analyses the conditions that have led to the institutionalization of abuse of power, including the creation and rationalization of criminal conspiracies, by US presidents sworn to uphold the law.

Those who are of good conscience must consider these things, whether they be so. And find for themselves whether wisdom excelleth folly, as far as light excelleth darkness or is it better to have a mind positioned in nothingness? Political realities are issues of the heart of leadership and although prayer changes things. Change must begin in our own hearts and wisdom manifests within the spirit of our minds. Where regard is rendered unto knowing that through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established: Wherewith, by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches. Then, let us all learn from a truth, “Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with the spirit of all wisdom.” From such a place shall we not be made free indeed?
Regardless of the conqueror, Syria – even if it remains united – will emerge as a devastated nation that relies on international benefactors to rebuild its infrastructure and economy. To Israel’s delight, the outcome of the conflict will leave the US and Russia, after the people of Syria, as the biggest strategic losers.
The excuse used to justify Obama’s failure to close GITMO is incomplete and misleading. Obama’s plan was never to close Gitmo as much as it was to re-locate it to Illinois: to what the ACLU dubbed “Gitmo North”.
The Syrian economy is being hit by the combined impacts of the US-NATO sponsored terrorist attacks and the economic sanctions regime. The ultimate objective of the US-NATO covert war on Syria is the destabilization of the Syria economy and the destruction of Syria as a nation state.
I agonize over why New York Times back wrong over right. Replicating what I and others like me do could improve millions of lives globally. You could deal warmongers a heavy body blow. Perhaps a fatal one. You back wrong over right. It’s never to late to change. Supporting what’s right is its own reward. Try it sometime and see. You may never look back.
Several targeted countries in the Middle East, Africa and Asia, are categorized as “failed states”. The central question is: who is failing the failed states? Who is “Taking them Out”?
It is part of a covert United States military and intelligence agenda. Destroying countries is part of a US Imperial project, a process of global domination.
Obama orders land, sea and air invasion of israel. Us sixth fleet wiped out by israeli planes, ships and subs. Israeli amphibious assault on washington dc successful. Israeli flag flies over the us capitol building.
Arab governments was far more pro-active, Hamas was treated as “a political actor” with sovereign authority, Abbas, have been sidelined, overshadowed, and irrelevant. Israel accepted obligations toward the people of Gaza that it would never have agreed to before war.
What Gaza needs are deeds to compel Western powers to come to their senses and stop defending Israel’s malevolent policies, not rhetoric, speeches and feel-good visits to Gaza.
Netanyahu finally decided that it would be too costly for Israel in diplomatic and political terms to say “No” to Obama and many other leaders who insisted that Israel had to agree to a ceasefire.
Let it, finally, be said: In praise of the ever-martyred but ever-heroic and ever-renascent people of Gaza. May they live to see the full brightness of dawn
And after the ceasefire, oppression will resume, the land-grab will continue, more rewards for Israel will flow. And it will be business as usual for Western leaders and their Zionist friends.
Israeli leadership knew exactly what it was doing. Israel’s policies seemed almost calculated to increase future ‘insecurity’ for its people and the region. Will they ever learn?
Shifa Hospital in Gaza call on all people of conscience to bring pressure to bear on their governments to take concrete and decisive steps without delay, to end this slaughter and to introduce stringent mechanisms to ensure it can never again be repeated.
What if Israel won’t comply? No problem: suspend all trade and technical cooperation. The international community must finally confront the problem it has created.
The Israelis are still bombing Gaza. America and Britain snigger and carry on handing out rewards to the psychopaths in Israel. Death is everywhere in Gaza.
Richard Falk calls on the international community to help defend the people of Gaza from the ongoing U.S.-backed Israeli assault. “It’s time, it seems to me, for the international community to take some responsibility for protecting the people of Gaza,” Falk says.
Clarity of justifications fails into obscurity when the question is raised, “What is it Israel is defending itself from or what is it being defended?” Political alphabet of the Protocols thereby being, immaculately executed through the ruse, “Israeli Rights to Defend Themselves Argument.”
Palestinian Arabs will not give up their right to the land or to full equality; they are not simply going to go away. But they are wrong to believe that this challenge can be solved by force.
So there’ll be no lasting peace. History will just keep repeating itself and the torment for blameless citizens will continue on both sides of the Gaza border.
In Gaza and other blighted parts of the globe we see this new configuration of power. What is happening in Gaza, like what is happening to people of color in marginal communities in the United States, is the model. The techniques of control, whether carried out by the Israelis or militarized police units in our inner-city drug wars, whether employed by military special forces or mercenaries in Pakistan, Afghanistan or Iraq, are tested first and perfected on the weak and the powerless. Our callous indifference to the plight of the Palestinians, and the hundreds of millions of poor packed into urban slums in Asia or Africa, as well as our own underclass, means that the injustices visited on them will be visited on us. In failing them we fail ourselves.
Al-Dalou family were praying to God that they would survive deadly Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip. But all of a sudden, a missile struck their three-storey building in central Gaza, burying the whole family under rubble.
Live update: List of Palestinians victims identified killed in the Israeli offensive on Gaza. Graph also shows the number of children and women killed in these assaults.
Gaza: The twins Mohammad Hijazi and Suhaib Hijazi were playing their last game when they were butchered. They were found sitting on the bicycles when the rescuers found them dead under the rubble of their house.
By supporting Israel’s offensive on Gaza, Western leaders have given the Israelis carte blanche to do what they’re best at: Wallow in their sense of victimhood and ignore Palestinian suffering.
Israel has embarked on an adventure it has not calculated properly. It must now bear the consequences. A truce will be on Hamas’s terms, not Israel’s. The first of these will be to lift the oppressive blockade on the Gaza Strip.
The four main culprits who should be held responsible for the deaths of Palestinians and Israelis in the days and, if Israel expands its operation, weeks ahead.
Targeting of Gaza’s unprotected and undefended civilian homes from high altitudes is the ultimate expression of cowardliness and callousness. Hence, the wanton, unbridled brutal aggression on the thoroughly tormented, thoroughly blockaded and bombed out Gazans.
Assault on Gaza is possible only because of direct, affirmative, unstinting US diplomatic, financial and military support for Israel and everything it does.
Israel have mocked the message of God’s prophet and turned it into a murderous blasphemy. The Pillar of Cloud represents life to the Palestinian people.
Blame Gaza victims always. Israeli aggression is called self-defense. Legitimate defense is called terrorism. Media scoundrels support Israel in lockstep.
It sounds as if Israel constructed a new battery in Tel Aviv overnight and deployed it in the morning. Reality is different; the IDF is hiding a weakness.
“Brave” Israeli airmen, soldiers, sailors, and other security force personnel are cowards. They’ve acted lawlessly for decades. Look at Gaza!
