Geithner Confirmed ?!

How can someone who does not pay their taxes be appointed to Secretary of the Treasury? This is just a reminder of how far principles have slipped since the early 1900's. A crook is given latitude because our economy is in trouble, and yet he subscribes to the same money mechanics fraud that caused the problem in the first place, but we will overlook his transgressions as a citizen so that he can guide us through a difficult and turbulent time economically pushing the same policy that failed us all along ! Wow, makes perfect sense now.

Norman Finkelstein's Lecture In Canada

Long video but well worth the watch if you want to truly understand the evolution of the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

White Phosphorus Use Admitted by Israel

Finally the Israelis admit to using White Phosphorus, and even though the Israelis weakly claim now that the weapon was not used illegally (ok for cover not as a weapon in civilian areas) the picture in the article clearly shows the weapon being used illegally. How disingenuous. But do we expect anything different from rogue state numero uno? It is interesting to note the lengthy chain of denials until photographic evidence is produced which shreds the Israeli claims. Now the Israelis will investigate their own use of the munition internally. That is akin to Israel investigating its own war crimes in Jenin in 2001. What is the Hebrew word for "whitewash" ? And the news front is abuzz today with Israel announcing that legal teams will be defending IDF soldiers (and commanders) who stand accused of war crimes. White phosphorus use is not the only claim of war crimes the Palestinians in Gaza have. The incident in Zeitoun takes the cake and dispels any Israeli claim of "purity of arms".

Heddy Epstein Interviewed by Clueless American Boob

How clueless can a person be? When Epstein told the story about 5 sisters being killed and the 6th lost both of her legs, what did this idiot say? Well you know, do you think there will ever be peace in the Middle East? That is the reply of a Nazi. And this same idiot should know there are MANY Jewish groups worldwide that have taken a courageous stand with respect to the Gaza, and for him to suggest that this one lady, very principled and moral lady, is all alone in her criticism is indeed irresponsible.

Thank you Heddy Epstein.

Israeli War Crimes Need to be Investigated and Prosecuted

Zeitoun is the tip of the iceberg I think. How can the US defend this cold-blooded murderous regime in Tel Aviv that does exactly as Hamas but on a much grander scale (target civilians) ?

The graffiti says it all. This is the mindset of the IDF soldiers, and it is the mindset that is the end line product of years and years of Zionist indoctrination. Pure hatred, racism, colonialism, and militarism wrapped up into one nasty abhorrent package ... Zionism. And my government defends this on one hand then has the temerity to discuss freedom and democracy on the other.

Why Did Israel Attack Gaza?

I had a suspicion the elections were involved, but Norman Finkelstein makes an interesting and supported thesis on why Israel attacked Gaza in the manner in which it did, and he might be correct.

Mark Regev Hits an All-Time Low

I have seen Mark Regev lie and spin more times than I care to recount, but in this small clip he truly hits an all-time low. Israel says ad nauseam that Hamas uses Palestinians as human shields, but the Israelis shoot anyway, so it is not much of a shield when the Israelis bomb schools, hospitals, UN compounds, houses where it ordered those fleeing to shelter, etc. But to suggest that Hamas killed many of its own for political purposes is not just amoral, it is monstrous.

Why Can't Jewish Members of Congress Make a Similar Stand ?

What a great stance and a terrific story this member of the UK Parliament shares. After seeing this video, can there be any doubt that the conflict is not about religion or ethnicity, but about justice and the amazing lack thereof.

Now the Hospitals Are Under Attack by the Israelis

Were it not Israel doing this I would be at a loss for words. Given their history of targeting civilians and having "accidents" this comes as no surprise really. I prognosticate that Israel will say Hamas was firing weapons from within these hospitals. Sickening display. I think all nations with an ounce of courage should sever diplomatic ties with Israel, especially the US. Israel is worse today than Apartheid South Africa ever was.

Israel Strikes Another UN Compound

Since Israel has bombed UN compounds many times before, the news of yet another Israeli attack on yet another UN compound begs the question : Is the IDF the most incompetent army in the world because it seems to hit everything except what it claims to be aiming at, or is Israel doing this on purpose and hiding behind the "fog of war" defense? If it only happened once or twice, then there is a specter of doubt. But this is getting quite ridiculous. Moreover this attack employed white phosphorus munitions, another war crime.

A Resident of Sderot Speaks

This is an article from Le Monde. It is in French but the author makes a very good point. Not in their name should these atrocities in Gaza be justified.

Deliberate Civilian Killing ... Murder

This article comes from the BBC and B'tSelem, credible sources in other words. It reminds of the wheelchair-bound man with a white flag that was ran over by a tank in Jenin. Dershowitz, despite this, claimed in his debate with Finkelstein, that the Israeli army did not kill a single civilian in Jenin. But Israel did block a fact-finding team from the UN to investigate, just like Israel is blocking western journalists and the Red Cross from entering Gaza now. What are the Israelis so afraid of? Being exposed as Nazis most likely.

Simply Superb!

What a great analogy!

A Different Moral Universe

What a different moral universe these people in this video live in. After returning from France and Turkey, where I watched coverage on BBC, CNN International, TV Monde, all of which showed the protests from around the WORLD, not just the Muslim world, it is clear that the US is again all alone and is having trouble this time defending Israel because of the collective moral outrage that Israel's assault on Gaza has sparked. But the people in this video call for wiping out all Palestinians. 1000 Palestinians dead, 13 israelis dead ... More than 300 children killed, and these moral vacuums call for more ethnic cleansing. What a world we live in.

Racist Apartheid Terrorist State Gives the Orders Now

This is absolutely disgraceful. Anyone who claims that the US is the most powerful nation in the world better think again. Our president takes orders from the leader of a racist Apartheid terrorist state. Shameful, incredible, unbelievable, and tomorrow this article will be lost in the internet shuffle.

Bravo !

Israel cannot claim to speak for all Jews of the world and then not listen to these people on the list. Bravo to the signatories and way to speak up.

This Article Won't Be Picked Up by CNN, NYT, WP, or any Other US Media Outlet

So Arabs are barred in the next round of Israeli Knesset votes! So much for Israel being the "model" democracy in the Middle East! Just a confirmation that Israel is the biggest racist nation on the planet, and yet it is common fare. This article will likely disappear from Haaretz tomorrow, and yet its impact is pretty telling of the typical Zionist mindset.

Israel's New Poster Boy

Must See Video on Media Bias on the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

All of my reading and study of this problem support every word uttered in this piece.

White Phosphorus Bombs Used by Israel

Proof that the Israelis are using white phosphorus bombs in the Gaza. War crime! Just add it to the list of Israeli war crimes, an ever-lengthening list.

Norwegian Doctor in Gaza

This doctor in the Gaza describes what he has been seeing.

Israel Changes Its Story

Israel changed its story about the bombing of the UN school in the Gaza. This is but one example in a deeply-disturbing pattern. When the Israelis get caught doing outrageous, illegal, and immoral things, they try to lie their way out of the mess, a la USS Liberty, Lavon affair, the 2 attacks on the UN compound at Qana, the commencement of the '67 war, etc. At what point is Israel held accountable? Israel should be booted out of the UN and should face sanctions from all countries around the world, if only the Americans would get out of the way and stop obstructing the issue.

Great Point !

Jeff Halper and Neve Gordon bring up an excellent point that has been lost amid the chaos of the Gaza attack.

Incisive British Sarcasm, Yet Effective

A commentary on the situation in Gaza with lots of insightful sarcasm.

Only Honest Newspaper in the US

I just read an article from the Washington Post written by Ephraim Sneh, former Israeli minister. Must be nice for Israelis to have such access to OUR media outlets in the states. In his pseudo-article, Sneh claimed that Hamas had Iran's Revolutionary Guard elements in Gaza since 2006 training Hamas militants. This would have been an incredible feat for Hamas to pull off. Israel has controlled the border since 2005, and has executed one of the most immoral sieges of an area in modern history, effectively blocking medicines, fuel, tax revenues owed to the Palestinians, food aid, etc. Israel has controlled every element of the border. Now Sneh claims, without a shred of evidence mind you, that Iran is working inside the Gaza. Please! Another Israeli lie. In fact, after having perused CNN, the NYT, the WP, and other "mainstream" media in the US I found that these media outlets are simply mouthpieces for the standard Israeli line of bullshit and propaganda. The first honest article I could find was on page 5 or 6 of googlenews .... the Rocky Mountain News!
