The Systematic Palestinian Genocide

Palestinian GenocideIsrael is at it again. Israel is executing a new phase of its genocidal strategy against Palestinians. Israel’s military genocidal “Operation Protective Edge” is its third major and the most intensified military onslaught, after 2008/09 and 2012 onslaughts, against the largest ever 1.8 million densely populated open air concentration prison camp of the Gaza Strip; Israel’s new-weapons test field, whose population have been starved and bombarded throughout the last seven years.

BRICS’ Time to Act to Counter US’ Destabilization Efforts

BRICSIt had to happen! The blame game on that horrendous airline incident, Malaysian Flight MH17, has reached the expected loud monotone of pointing fault, lock, stock and barrel at Russia… and, more specifically, to that villain ex-KGB Slav, Vladimir Putin.

US media barrage of grotesque and obscene propaganda against America’s former foe and competitor, whether filtering down from the top or randomly finding placement in the emotions of a brainwashed citizenry, has found a leader of this warring marching band in Barack Obama.

Israel: This is what national resistance looks like

by Rachel Shabi

If you're going to pursue an outlandish narrative, you might as well go all the way with it. This must be the operational assumption among Israeli leaders who, in trying to justify a grotesque attack on Gaza that has resulted in, at latest count, more than 800 Palestinian deaths - the majority of those innocent civilians - are now asserting that Hamas...

International Law, Morality and the Right of Self Defence

by Toby Cadman

On 23 July 2014 the outgoing UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navanethem Pillay, condemned the escalation of military action in Gaza, saying that both sides may have committed war crimes. In an emergency session at the UN Human Rights Council she condemned both the IDF and Hamas for failing to protect civilians. She stated that “there seems to...

Law, War and Human Rights

by Toby Cadman

The use of torture and extra-judicial rendition is an affront to the rule of law. No State built on democratic principles and with that, the rule of law, should allow such a practice to remain unpunished. Organs of the State that have resorted to 'black op' tactics to target terrorism defeat the very ideals that we hold so highly.

Massacre in Gaza

What has been happening in Gaza cannot usefully be described as "warfare". The daily reports of atrocities situate this latest Israeli assault on common humanity within the domain of what the great Catholic thinker and poet, Thomas Merton, caIled "the unspeakable". Its horror exceeds our capacity to render the events through language.

When BBC Calls, Don’t Answer..

That is, don’t answer, if you are a certified critic of Israeli policies and practices.

The siren lure of big time media is partly a romancing of the ego, partly a rare moment to intrude a moment or two of truthfulness into the endless spinning of the Israel’s narrative that stresses its extravagantly humane response to Hamas flurries of rockets and alleged human...

The 17th day – may it be the last

by Adam Keller

The following was written down during two hours of this morning, interrupted by intensive listening to the news and one air raid alarm and a bit of weekend  shopping. And perhaps there will after all be a cease-fire and everything I have written in the morning will become outdated, a museum piece, before I had a chance to post it. May it be so!

Operation Security Bottom

by Osama Gil-laden in Jerusalem

Avi Dichter, former head of the Israel Security Agency and home front defense minister, declared earlier this week that “there is no Iron Dome against the terror tunnels.” The message is devastatingly clear; the Jewish people are now attacked from below – the bottom front is bare and widely open.

Drug-War Nonsense from a U.S. Commander

Immediately after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Pentagon got a bit freaked out. People were talking about a “peace dividend,” by which they meant that Americans now had the opportunity to significantly reduce military spending now that the 45-year-old Cold War had ended.

In Foreign Affairs, Not Doing Anything Is the Thing to Do

The heartbreaking violence in the Middle East, Ukraine, and elsewhere carries many messages, but here’s one Americans shouldn’t miss: The United States — no matter who the president is — cannot manage world conflict. The corollary is that when a president tries to manage it, things will usually get worse. Foresight is always defective, and tragic unintended consequences...
