The Tragic Truth About the State of Israel

Carlos Latuff/ MWC NEWSby Luke Hiken

In the 1940’s and 50’s, I was raised on the North Shore of Chicago, in a suburb named Glencoe. The town was at least 95% Jewish, and everyone knew who the 3 black families were, knew the handful of Christians and “others” who resided near us.

Israeli Aggression: Dress Rehearsal for Iran?

racisemLongstanding US and Israeli policies call for regime change in Iran. Replacing its independent government with a pro-Western puppet one is planned.

Israel's medievalism

Israeli Interior Minister Eli Yishai stated that current operations in Gaza should send it "back to the Middle Ages"by Michael Marder

In one of the most brazen and, at the same time, frank declarations to date, the Israeli Minister of the Interior, Eli Yishai stated regarding the war currently being waged on the Gaza Strip: "The goal of the operation is to send Gaza back to the Middle Ages.

He also shed light on Binyamin Netanyahu's vision of peace not as a relation among equals but as the calm of the defeated, the vision consistent with the use of war to bolster the Prime Minister's domestic image as a tough, military leader in a run-up to his likely re-election in January 2013.
