Deconstructing the Zionist View of Gaza’s Horror

David HarrisDavid Harris and the American Jewish Congress

For reasons unknown I have ended up on the list-serve of the American Jewish Congress. This means I receive messages sent out by its executive director, David Harris. Sometimes I even read them.

The Systematic Palestinian Genocide

Palestinian GenocideIsrael is at it again. Israel is executing a new phase of its genocidal strategy against Palestinians. Israel’s military genocidal “Operation Protective Edge” is its third major and the most intensified military onslaught, after 2008/09 and 2012 onslaughts, against the largest ever 1.8 million densely populated open air concentration prison camp of the Gaza Strip; Israel’s new-weapons test field, whose population have been starved and bombarded throughout the last seven years.

On Gaza, genocide, and impunity

by Ambassador Abukar Arman

In recent weeks, Israel has unleashed what amounts to the worst one-sided barbarism against one of the world's most densely populated areas - Gaza. In the process, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has pulled back the curtain to proudly show the world how, under his leadership, Israel has defeated North Korea for the rogue state par excellence...

Lebanon and Gaza: Resistance begins at home

As the latest Zionist aggression continues unabated in its slaughter of the defenseless population of Gaza (for the fourth time in ten years, no less!) one of course might simply sit back and hope for the improbable—that the global community will act to end it. But this is no more likely, and maybe even less so, than have been the prospects for bringing justice to Palestine...

Syllogism of Death

by Dan Lieberman

The media emphasizes the emotional aspect of tragedy, and the public responds with tears and regrets, rarely giving attention to the illogic that caused the tragedy. When illogic is a governing factor in the violence against people, it elevates the calamity to a criminal action. Feeling sorrow for the victim is warranted but insufficient; thought must...

In this war, both sides have the same aim: to put an end to the situation that existed before it started.

Israel: This is what national resistance looks like

by Rachel Shabi

If you're going to pursue an outlandish narrative, you might as well go all the way with it. This must be the operational assumption among Israeli leaders who, in trying to justify a grotesque attack on Gaza that has resulted in, at latest count, more than 800 Palestinian deaths - the majority of those innocent civilians - are now asserting that Hamas...

International Law, Morality and the Right of Self Defence

by Toby Cadman

On 23 July 2014 the outgoing UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navanethem Pillay, condemned the escalation of military action in Gaza, saying that both sides may have committed war crimes. In an emergency session at the UN Human Rights Council she condemned both the IDF and Hamas for failing to protect civilians. She stated that “there seems to...

When BBC Calls, Don’t Answer..

That is, don’t answer, if you are a certified critic of Israeli policies and practices.

The siren lure of big time media is partly a romancing of the ego, partly a rare moment to intrude a moment or two of truthfulness into the endless spinning of the Israel’s narrative that stresses its extravagantly humane response to Hamas flurries of rockets and alleged human...

The 17th day – may it be the last

by Adam Keller

The following was written down during two hours of this morning, interrupted by intensive listening to the news and one air raid alarm and a bit of weekend  shopping. And perhaps there will after all be a cease-fire and everything I have written in the morning will become outdated, a museum piece, before I had a chance to post it. May it be so!

Operation Security Bottom

by Osama Gil-laden in Jerusalem

Avi Dichter, former head of the Israel Security Agency and home front defense minister, declared earlier this week that “there is no Iron Dome against the terror tunnels.” The message is devastatingly clear; the Jewish people are now attacked from below – the bottom front is bare and widely open.

Drug-War Nonsense from a U.S. Commander

Immediately after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Pentagon got a bit freaked out. People were talking about a “peace dividend,” by which they meant that Americans now had the opportunity to significantly reduce military spending now that the 45-year-old Cold War had ended.

In Foreign Affairs, Not Doing Anything Is the Thing to Do

The heartbreaking violence in the Middle East, Ukraine, and elsewhere carries many messages, but here’s one Americans shouldn’t miss: The United States — no matter who the president is — cannot manage world conflict. The corollary is that when a president tries to manage it, things will usually get worse. Foresight is always defective, and tragic unintended consequences...
