The King of Love is dead

On this Martin Luther King Day it is good to remember the unseemly truth behind the pompous posturing. All the inflated homage to the "I have a dream" secretly veils the real relief of our public officials who thank their gods that there remains no seer, prophet or revolutionary thinker left that can match the vision and the strategic intelligence of the man who called out the conscience of a nation and died at the hands of our government for his trouble. 

(I'm not kidding about this. it is an established fact that King died at least partially as a result of actions on the part of agents or agencies of the US federal government.) 

Like Christ, before the Grand Inquisitor in Dostoevsky's Brothers Karamazov, if King returned today, the leaders of our present racist, warmongering administration would kill him again.

I have no doubt that Obama would be the first in line to fire the first shot.  He can legally do it now in broad daylight without fear of censure.

 King clearly will always be an inspiration to those who are enemy combatants against evil everywhere.  We cannot suffer such a man to live.

Pushing the envelope: The World Cup and Arab revolts drive change

The pushing of the envelope may be the most marked in Qatar because the prospect of the World Cup in the Guf state has focussed attention on how it will deal with the expected influx of large numbers of soccer fans from less conservative and non-Muslim societies.

The Funeral Ruckus

Shimon Peres would have enjoyed it. A public battle about his funeral. The Arab members of the Knesset did not attend. So what? I did not attend, either. We never liked each other, and my attendance would have been sheer hypocrisy. I don't like hypocrisy.

US-led sanctions targeting Syria risk adjudication as War Crimes

As many of us would agree, the continuing conflict in Syria has created a devastating humanitarian crisis: the magnitude of humanitarian needs is overwhelming in all parts of the country and affects the region and beyond.

Come and See the Anarchy Inherent in the System!

Donald Trump says the presidential election is "rigged." Although he provides no evidence for his charge, lots of things can be said about it. For one thing, he equivocates over the word rigged to include voter fraud along with news-media/polling bias -- two very different things. The former suggests that the outcome is predetermined, the latter only that influential organizations...

Zionism is Racism

Hardly any knowledgeable person doubts that Zionist ideology is the purest form of racism. Zionism is Jewish disguised racism as a raison d’état. Israel comes right after the U. S., as far as racism is concerned.

How Israel seeks to erase the region’s history

It was presumably intended as an Israeli history lesson to the world.

Play to Your Strength

Good foreign policy rests on the foundation of common sense: don’t dig holes to climb into, play to your strength. Directly challenging Moscow’s strength in Syria is simply immature…dangerous posturing that will undermine U.S. credibility. A better way lies through beating ISIS and revaluating U.S. policy in Yemen.

Israel’s Lieberman Threatens Gazans with Genocide

Israel’s minister of war Avigdor Lieberman is part of Israel’s lunatic fringe - ruthless, lawless, racist, militant, extremist and nightmarish for Palestinians.

Yankee, Go Home! … from the Philippines

Who would have ever thought that the drug war would end up producing a good result? Yet, that is precisely what is happening before our eyes in Asia, where Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has declared a separation of the Philippines from the United States, which might mean a re-closing of U.S. imperial bases within the country. (The U.S. military was thrown out of the country...

Paranoid Apoplexy Over the Russkies

As I watch the paranoid apoplexy that U.S. officials and their acolytes in the mainstream press are displaying over the hacking of Democratic Party computers and the disclosure of their emails, I’m tempted to say that it might all be some sort of karmic justice. But since I’m a Christian rather than a Buddhist, I’m more tempted to say that it might all be a ratification...

The Gropage Report

If experts are correct in saying that Donald Trump needs women voters to win the presidency, the last two weeks have been the worst for any political candidate since the summer of 1984 when Michael Dukakis climbed into a tank and tried on a helmet.

The continued closure of Egyptian stadia

Egyptian-general-turned-president Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi's failed economic policies are prompting protests and widespread expressions of discontent.
