When the US casts that veto at the UN, Obama will be rejecting an important segment of those progressive supporters who, in 2008, walked the streets for him and brought voters to the polls because they believed he would be a different kind of president. The PEPs (Progressive except on Palestine) won’t care, but peace and justice volunteers will.

Mearsheimer* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz Israel’s botched raid against the Gaza-bound humanitarian flotilla on May 31 is the latest sign that Israel is on a disastrous course that it seems incapable of reversing.

In the wake of the commando raid that left nine dead, the Israeli government confiscated every recording and communication device it could find–thus allowing the state to control what the world learned about the assault.

By Dr. Alan Sabrosky* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz The opening moves in the reaction to the Israeli interception of the first wave of the Gaza flotilla have now been made.

By Dr. Alan Sabrosky* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz Israel’s attack on the Gaza-bound aid flotilla on America’s Memorial Day was all too predictable, although the form it took surprised even me.
