International Women’s Day

International Women’s DayZionist US denies Right to Life of Born Muslims

March 8th is International Women’s Day, a day on which we reflect on the great gains in women’s rights around the world but also on the progress that needs to be made against sexism, misogyny and other violation of women’s rights. A major area of concern remains the reproductive choice of women that is opposed by religious fundamentalists who declaim the Right to Life of the Unborn. However in a process of appalling and deadly hypocrisy these same US Alliance Christian fundamentalists ignore or dismiss the Right to Life of Born infants, of whom 7 million currently die avoidably each year on Spaceship Earth with religious right-dominated America at the helm.

Literature in a Locked Down Land

classwarWorking class literature is alive and well and living in prison. It is "well" not in the sense of being contented and happy but rather of being vital and impassioned.

Reciprocity and Self-Defense in Relation to Targeted Killing

Attorney General, Eric HolderThis article is a modified and expanded text of a contribution to a Jadaliyya roundtable on targeted killing posted on March 5, 2012, and responding to the article by Lisa Hajjar referred to in the opening paragraph.

There is an emergent Israeli/American controversy on the lawfulness of targeted killing. Although the policy has not yet attained the status of being a national debate, there are signs that it may be about to happen, especially in light of the Attorney General, Eric Holder’s Northwestern Law School speech on March 5, 2012 outlining the Obama’s administration’s controversial approach to targeted killing in some detail. Lisa Hajjar convincingly narrates how the “legalization” of targeted killing has evolved over the course of the last twenty years. [Hajjar, “Lawfare and Targeted Killing  evelopments in the Israeli and U.S. Contexts,” Jadaliyya, Jan. 15, 2012] She there calls attention to the analogy to the torture debate that, in many ways, defined the political and moral identity of the Bush presidency in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, and even caused moral and legal fissures to develop that divided the American people unto this day.

Australian climate change inaction

Australian climate Orwellian Labor Government pretends the opposite

Australia is a world leader in annual per capita greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution. However pro-coal, pro-gas  Australian PM Julia Gillard has an appalling record of climate change inaction falsely dressed up as the opposite. The biggest and most outrageous untruth of Gillard Labor is that it is "tackling  climate change" for a "clean energy future", as systematically set out below.

Electoral Politics in America

Electoral Politics He said, she said, who's ahead, who's behind discourse dominates political reporting. As a result, issues go unaddressed. People are left uninformed in the dark. Media scoundrels focus on popularity, not competence, and what readers and viewers most need to know.
