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.

The Dementedness Destroying Israel

ayelet-shakedA noticeable change has occurred in Israel since its bombardment of Gaza in 2008/9, what I have termed the Christmas bombing of imprisoned civilians caught in a steel net surrounding their sliver of land, a change that offers perspective on the altering mindset that guides this benumbed state.

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.

Bangladesh's Contribution to International Criminal Justice

Palestinian Recourse to ICC: The Time has Come

Ever since this latest Israeli major military operation against Gaza started on July 8, there have been frequent suggestions that Israel is guilty of war crimes, and that Palestine should do its best to activate the International Criminal Court (ICC) on its behalf. The evidence overwhelmingly supports basic Palestinian allegations—Israel is guilty either of aggression in violation...

A Critical Review of the International Crimes Tribunal in Bangladesh

History is littered with examples of atrocity crimes committed during conflict. The community of nations has universally recognized that such ‘international crimes’, including war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide, have quite rightly been universally condemned...

MH17 atrocity & Israeli Gaza Massacre

The entire world has been utterly horrified by the destruction of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 (298 dead) on 17 July 2014 by a sophisticated surface-to-air missile launched either by Government Ukrainians, or Rebel Ukrainians (the latter less likely because it can only damage their cause, they have not been supplied with such missiles, and they lack the required skilled Buk system...

Gaza Facts: Israel Is Wrong, Period

by M.J. Rosenberg

Listening to Netanyahu's defenders in the media (and that is pretty much all you get as objective reporters are yanked off the air), I'm struck by how Americans are indoctrinated into ignoring the most significant fact about Gaza.

Apartheid Israel’s Gaza Massacre continues. 21 July is now Day 14 of the latest Israeli Gaza Massacre (aka “Operation Protective Edge”) that commenced on 8 July 2014 after the discovery on 30 June 2014 of the bodies of 3 Israeli settler teenagers on the West Bank (killed by persons unknown but possibly by Israeli state terrorists), and the subsequent Israeli killing of 5...

Stuck on Stuck

“Just following the will of the people.” That’s been the GOP rationalization for accomplishing absolutely nothing for five and a half years. Doesn’t matter what the issue is. Immigration. Jobs. Infrastructure. Climate change. Banking reform. The proliferation of substandard dental schools in Nebraska.

The End of Israel

In his speech to the nation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acknowledged yesterday that the war on Gaza is a battle for the existence of the Jewish State. Netanyahu is correct. And Israel cannot win this battle; it cannot even define what a victory might entail. Surely the battle is not about the tunnels or the militants’ underground operation, the tunnels are just weapons of...

Fox News mic catches Kerry criticising Israel

by Jonathan Cook

US Secretary of State John Kerry is confronted by Fox News with a conversation with an aide that was supposed to be private but was caught by an open studio microphone. He criticises Israel’s attack on Gaza, saying sarcastically: “It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation.” That is presumably a reference to the rapidly escalating death toll over the...

The Truth About Ukraine

Let's talk about the truth of the situation in Ukraine. Forget about all the talk on the MSM. The real truth is that the United States is taking the position of a nation that is trying to stop a civil war in Ukraine and putting the blame on Vladimir Putin and the Russian separatists for shooting down a Malaysian airliner. 

Competition corrupts minds and actions

Cooperation is needed

The 12 billion US $ festival of football (the most expensive in its 84 year history) has reached its climax; a month more or less of nationalistic competition has enthralled, appalled and disappointed. The sponsors return with gold galore, Germany triumphantly parks the Jules Rimet Trophy alongside its economic supremacy and Brazil wakes to face...
