One swallow does not make a spring

hebron-settlersby Adam Keller

Pesach in Hebron 44 years ago - not long after Israel's army conquered this city during the war which lasted six days, and the Israeli military government was still at its beginning, and there were those who still spoke seriously about "The Liberal Occupation". A group calling themselves "settlers" (a new concept at the time) arrived in Hebron, headed by Rabbi Moshe Levinger. They set themselves up at the city's Park Hotel, ostensibly in order to celebrate the Passover and in fact to embark on the creation of "accomplished facts".

In Defense of Guenter Grass

Guenter GrassThese two cautionary admonitions capture the thrust of Guenter Grass’ electrifying poem, “What Must Be Said,” that has brought an avalanche of invective – some scurrilous, some vituperative, some even personal vilification – against the man who warns the people of the world as well as the Jewish people of the dangers inherent in the actions of the Zionist controlled government of the State of Israel.

Putting Syria into some perspective

Syriaby William Blum

The Holy Triumvirate — The United States, NATO, and the European Union — or an approved segment thereof, can usually get what they want. They wanted Saddam Hussein out, and soon he was swinging from a rope. They wanted the Taliban ousted from power, and, using overwhelming force, that was achieved rather quickly. They wanted Moammar Gaddafi's rule to come to an end, and before very long he suffered a horrible death. Jean-Bertrand Aristide was democratically elected, but this black man who didn't know his place was sent into distant exile by the United States and France in 2004. Iraq and Libya were the two most modern, educated and secular states in the Middle East; now all four of these countries could qualify as failed states.

Censorship by the Conversation

Carlos Latuff/ MWC NEWSPro-Zionist Mainstream media censorship

Free speech and correct reportage are  vital for societal safety. As a 5-decade-career academic scientist I am appalled by the disconnect between perception of reality by expert scientists and that of politicians and the public informed by Mainstream media. This disconnect is most astonishingly apparent into man-made climate change –  all but a tiny minority of scientists accept that anthropogenic global warming is a reality and a major threat to humanity whereas perhaps only about 50% of laypersons accept this because of egregiously incorrect mainstream media reportage (most notoriously by the Murdoch media empire).
