Poof! There goes Netanyahu's Iran bogeyman


by Rachel Shabi

Long before a historic deal was finally agreed upon, we might have guessed what the Israeli government would make of it. Having warned about the perils of any rapprochement with Iran for some years - going to the US Congress, twice, and to the UN, with the same doom-laden messages - it was probably safe to assume that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's reaction to any agreement would be: We hate it.

Andergachew Tsige, Ethiopian brutality, British apathy

Andergachew Tsige

On 23rd June 2014 Andergachew Tsige was illegally detained at Sana’a airport in Yemen whilst travelling from Dubai to Eritrea on his British passport. He was swiftly handed over to the Ethiopian authorities, who had for years posted his name at the top of the regime’s most wanted list. Since then he has been detained incommunicado in a secret location inside Ethiopia. His ‘crime’ is the same as hundreds, perhaps thousands of others, publicly criticising the ruling party of Ethiopia, and their brutal form of governance.

The Mistakes of the Global Imperial State and the Others


It was pointed out to me that the oddities of reconciliation without truth that I encountered in the Philippines with respect to the persisting prominence of the Marcos family despite the widespread discrediting of his period of ruler ship (1965-1986) is not as strange as I made it appear.

- The Need to End Impunity and Move to Accountability -

In March 2011 hundreds (and then thousands) of Syrian citizens started a series of peaceful protests across the Syrian Arab Republic, starting in Dara’a, the cradle of the revolution, calling for democratic reforms. The response of the Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad and his autocratic Government however was to meet these protests with acts of brutal violence. On 20 March 2011 Security Forces opened fire on anti-government protesters at a peaceful demonstration in Dara’a killing more than 20 civilians.

Israel's self-destruction path


The 2015 election was a giant step towards the self-destruction of Israel. The decisive majority has voted for an apartheid state between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River, in which democracy will slowly disappear. The decision is not yet final. Israeli democracy has lost a battle. It has not yet lost the war.
