Lawrence Davidson analyses the culture behind efforts by Zionist lobbyists in the United States to censor free debate of Zionism and Israel’s policies through pressure, blackmail and smearing the advocates of free speech as “anti-Semites” or “self-hating Jews”.

Richard Lightbown analyses the media reports on the background to current hostilities between Gaza and Israel and sees little cause for optimism.
What really happened on 9/11 still hasn’t filtered through the minds of enough of the public. They still believe that Bin Laden was responsible and that the hijackers were Saudis who suddenly came out of a genie bottle as well-trained test pilots.
Why, indeed, is Israel bombing Gaza? The Israeli public must be persuaded that Palestinians are not to be trusted. Israel is in danger of losing the September 20 vote for Palestinian statehood in the UN General Assembly.
With a sigh of relief, Netanyahu returned to his usual stance. Here he was, surrounded by generals, the he-man, the resolute fighter, the Defender of Israel.
When fundamentally unjust situations are left unaddressed by states, the people must step in. As the collective punishment of 1.5 millions civilians persists, it’s time to ask yourself: which side are you on?
“We Are Eager to Get to Gaza”: Democracy Now! Exclusive Report from Greece on U.S. Gaza Aid Flotilla
Aaron Maté from Democracy Now! is in Athens to cover the journey of The Audacity of Hope, named after President Obama’s bestselling book. He and fellow producer, Hany Massoud, are the only journalists with the U.S. delegation. They file this exclusive report.
If the historical goal of the state of Israel is to provide the world’s Jews a secure national home, a place of refugee in a world of real or potential anti-Semitism, it seems to have failed. It has failed not because this writer says so, but because an increasing number of its own Jewish citizens say so.
Our inaugural voyage into the realm of illegal Israeli settlements is the lovely (and did I mention illegal?) town of Ariel, which lies not far from Nablus and which the Jewish Virtual Liebrary has the chutzpahpahpah to call “the capital of Samaria.”
In short, criticise Israel for any of its misdeeds–destruction of Lebanon’s infrastructure, imprisoning thousands of Palestinians, starving and slaughtering Gazans–and Klein will shift to an unrelated issue. Americans think that any criticism of America is unjustified, primarily because much of the evidence fails to make it to the media and because they rebel at criticism.
No Americans possess the honor, courage, credibility, bearing hardships and sacrificing life and limb as America’s soldiers and Veterans who uniquely have the knowledge that war is hell, but willingly accept that liberty and freedom from all foes from abroad or within is the highest calling to defend this nation.
Honorable Veterans, you are America’s pride with vast support in this country. It must be you that rallies this nation to once against fight for America’s Independence from Israel’s power. You, along with all of us who will follow your leadership, must, must, must reclaim our government, the White House and the subservient Congress, from the tentacles of Israel that reach deep into our Treasury, Pentagon, State Department, and Commerce Department, and our Federal Reserve.
Any credible forensics would start by asking: to whose benefit? Then look to means, motive and opportunity plus the presence of stable nation-state intelligence inside the U.S.
Other than Israel, who else is a credible candidate? Notice how quickly Israel’s role in the peace process vanished from the news. Now it’s Iran, Iran and more Iran. To whose benefit?
Tel Aviv knows that the phony intelligence on Iraq leads to those skilled at waging war “by way of deception”-the motto of the Israeli Mossad.
Wikileaks are noteworthy for what’s missing: the absence of any material damaging to Israeli goals.
Instead of asking why some groups or individuals in Israeli society are willing to take great risks to hold that society accountable for its actions, Israel prefers to blame the problem on treacherous, self-hating, anti-Semitic Jews, and to instill fear and hatred as the means for preventing Israelis from examining their consciences.
The exposed information (website closed now) triggered Israeli high officials and high-ranking officers from all Israeli security departments to go after the websites that published the information. So far, the original websites were removed completely and other documents’ publishing websites decided to remove the material and close the users’ accounts. However, the publisher of the website started an alternative website and republished all the informations again.
The Present: In the midst of Operation Cast Lead, which killed more than 1,400 Palestinians and lead to accusations of war crimes and crimes against humanity by the Goldstone Report, on January 16th, 2009, Congressed signed a Memorandum of Understanding essentially endorsing the operation and pledging unconditional support for the State of Israel. While vocal on a number of policy issues before his inauguration, Obama said nothing of this development, and has yet to negatively address the MOU.

By Lawrence Davidson* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz On 5 September 2010 the Israel newspaper Ha’aretz published an article the headline of which read ‘Anti-Israel economic boycotts are gaining speed’.

A case of decency deficit: Israel’s sickness goes beyond one soldier and her Facebook pictures – By Lawrence Davidson
By Lawrence Davidson* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz It is true that in any given population there will always be a range of decency. Some might use the term morality instead of decency, but morality is loaded with too many disputed meanings. The term decency, hopefully, has a broader recognizable footprint. At the lowest end [...]
