Globalizing Gaza: Israel (& US) vs. International Law

Globalizing Gaza in both military and legal terms raises the slogan “we are all Palestinians” from one of political solidarity to literal accuracy. Its corollary also highlights a key element of international politics of which we must be keenly aware: our governments are all Israel. Jeff Halper

Why do the basic rules of international law continue to be forsaken?

Why have they been forsaken for so long now especially in relation to Israel? Read below the fold...

8-14 NYC Gaza Forum Part 1: Intro, Marlowe, & Kuttab

I entered the Great Hall of Cooper Union in New York City last Thursday night for yet another consciousness-raising forum sponsored and organized by World Can’t Wait under the leadership of its national coordinator, Debra Sweet. This one was focused on Israeli war crimes in Gaza.

I was relieved to see that a huge crowd had turned out. Read below the fold...

Exterminating the Legacy of Anne Frank

“In spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can’t build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death. I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness, I hear the ever approaching thunder, which will destroy us too, I can feel the sufferings of millions and yet, if I look up into the heavens, I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty too will end, and that peace and tranquility will return again.” ― Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

Israel Wages 'Slaughter War' Claiming Victimhood

In reading Dennis Bernstein’s “The Whys Behind Israel’s Gaza Slaughter” I noted his references to a “slaughter war” being waged by Israel on Gaza. In his article Vijay Prashad, professor of international studies at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut had this to say: Read below the fold...

Can You Handle Truth re US-Led Collapse of World Security?

What follows are five fact-filled and revelatory perspectives I have distilled from Professor John McMurtry’s compelling “‘Global Society Destruction’ and The Ukraine Crisis: Decoding its Deep Structural Meaning”. McMurtry cuts through the mainstream media anti-Russian and anti-Ukraine resistance propaganda to expose what he considers a US-led money/military cancer system attacking ALL of global civilization.

US & SA Realpolitiks Stink

Neo-Nazi Thug-Officials Rough Up National Ukrainian TV Head

According to Johannes Stern in “Svoboda thugs attack head of Ukrainian national television” there is a fascist “reign of terror” happening on the streets of Kiev thanks to the Western-backed coup at the end of last month.

A shocking YouTube video [click here to see Stern article with video] shows what happens when Neo-Nazis are put in charge of Ukrainian security/enforcement duties with the generous backing of the US and EU. (Sophisticated NATO weaponry still to come to these neo-Nazis). Read below the fold...

US to Crush Russian Gas Trade via Demonization & Fracking?

Thread: 

Glen Ford has a compelling, troubling and revelatory article over at Black Agenda Report entitled, “U.S. Prepares to Gas Russia Into Submission.” Now I’m thinking maybe we should bottom-line the Ukraine fiasco by archly suggesting, “It’s about the Russian energy exports, stupid!” The new militarist playbook in the Ukraine is really the same old militarist playbook from Iraq. Nothing to do with humanitarian concern for democracy. Money, money, money. Oil, oil, oil. Gas, gas, gas. Read below the fold...

U.S. Hearts Saudi Despots

Have we as a citizenry ever gotten a good answer on why the U.S. went after Iraq when a whopping 15 of the 19 Al Qaeda hijackers in the 9/11 attacks (according to wikipedia) were citizens of Saudi Arabia? (The four others were from Egypt, Lebanon and the UAE.)

Have we ever gotten a good answer as to why negative focus has never been directed by U.S. administrations or corporate media against the despotic monarchy of Saudi Arabia (our main weapons customer) while it oppresses its own people and enables other despotisms to oppress theirs?

US Citizens Goose-Step to Voting Booth & War with Iran

A vote for either Obama or Romney will be an endorsement for a war with Iran.

Both evil Romney and supposedly lesser evil Obama are committed to more war in general and committed to obliging Israel’s strident insistence for a war with Iran.

All American citizens should think of this as they cast their ballots. Think of their own participation -- their enabling -- the greatest crime against humanity -- WAR. Read below the fold...
