WATCH: Israeli Occupiers Suppress Gaza Protest in Jerusalem

By the Editor.
Today at approximately 12:30pm Israeli forces put down a Gaza protest at Damascus Gate in Jerusalem. Several youths were abducted by the occupying forces, and women were shoved to the ground by soldiers and border police.
The first video is filmed looking down on Damascus Gate from the outside, and shows a number of youths being attacked and taken away by Israeli forces.

I filmed the following video moments later on Sultan Suleiman Street immediately north of the gate, and it shows a Palestinian …

Palestine: Should We Celebrate Settler-Colonialists For Refusing to Serve in the IOF?

By the Editor.
Jewish ‘Israeli’ refusenik Moriel Rothman receives widespread media attention as Palestinian prisoner Ayman Sharawna, facing imminent death on hunger and water strike, is met with silence. Should we even be celebrating settler-colonialists who refuse to enlist?
“I, like many in the American Jewish community, am a Zionist“ ~ Moriel Rothman.
Recently, ‘Israeli’ refusenik Moriel Rothman was detained in ‘Israeli’ prison for refusing to enlist in the ‘Israeli’ Occupation Army. The individual action of refusing to enlist in the IOF is a commendable step. However with regards to …

August 5 Sinai Attack Bears All the Hallmarks of an Israeli False Flag

By the Editor.
On Sunday 5 August a number of unidentified militants carried out an attack in the Egyptian Sinai in which several Egyptian soldiers were killed, and Israel’s border was penetrated. After Iftar as the Egyptian Muslims were breaking their fast, unknown militants killed 16 Egyptian soldiers and stole an Egyptian armoured vehicle. Using a pick-up truck packed with explosives, the militants breached the Egypt-Israel border at the ‘Kerem Shalom’ crossing and subsequently drove approximately one mile into Israel using the armoured vehicle they had commandeered.
This event brings …

The Visible Ghosts of Palestine

By the Editor.
A walk through occupied Al Khalil (Hebron) offers a shocking and heartbreaking insight into the struggle of the oppressed souls of one of Palestine’s most important cities. Day by day, Al Khalil is becoming a ghost town as the indigenous Palestinians are forced out through a wickedly evil campaign of terrorism, intimidation, and oppression.
Israel’s occupation is multi-faceted, one which attacks the Palestinians’ freedom, culture, economy, and way of life, as well as their very survival in ways which will shock and perturb any person who harbours even …

There are two kinds of people in this world

By the Editor.
There are two kinds of people in this world.
The first seeks knowledge, while the second seeks gratification.
The first trembles with anger when injustice is done to others; the second is numb and unconcerned.
The first recognises their duty to speak out, while the second dismisses injustice as being out of their hands or simply ‘the way it is’.
The first is loyal and loving to their human & non-human brothers and sisters, while the second is loyal to their nation.
The first rejects dogma and thinks independently; the second blindly respects …

The Palestine Solidarity Movement: A Recipe for Kosher anti-Zionism

By the Editor.
British Palestine Solidarity outfit ‘Palestine Place’ provides a platform for anti-Syrian speakers, while ostracising and banning activists who choose to discuss topics designated as ‘no-go’ by Zionist ideology. This is symptomatic of a wider disease prevalent in the ‘Palestine Solidarity Movement’.
The Palestine Solidarity Movement, not only within the UK but across nations worldwide, is becoming increasingly fractured and impotent. The movement is characterised by swathes of different groups squabbling amongst themselves, and ostracising members(1) who cross certain red lines – red lines which have been drawn …

Avaaz: Empire Propaganda Mill Masquerading as Grassroots Activism

By the Editor.
‘Activism’ and ‘human rights’ foundation Avaaz blames the Houla massacre on Assad and calls for foreign intervention. A peek into the background of Avaaz explains its pro-empire position, and who is really behind it.
The ultra-shadowy Avaaz Foundation is purportedly a non-governmental organisation that seeks to(1) “close the gap between the world we have and the world most people everywhere want.”
A mere three days after the Houla Massacre in Syria, while all parties were clamouring to figure out what had happened and who was responsible, Avaaz took the …

Lies, Damned Lies, and Wikipedia

By the Editor.
How many times have you used Wikipedia when trying to find out the basic facts surrounding an unfamiliar event or topic? How many times has Wikipedia been your first port of call? When one seeks information online relating to a divisive, confusing, or hotly debated topic, nine times out of ten the first port of call will be a search engine, most likely Google. Resultingly (as we will see), the online encyclopedia ‘Wikipedia‘, now a household name, has become the chief first source of information …

Syria – Next Step of NATO Military Strategy: Bombing & Annexation of a Quarter of Syrian Territory

By the Editor.
As the next step of NATO’s military strategy in Syria is revealed, the Orwellian buzzwords evolve a stage further to include ‘collective air shields’ as well as the ‘humanitarian corridor’ – euphemisms for the deadly bombardment, annexation and occupation of Syria’s sovereign territory.
As Syrian rebels retreat from the Babr Amr district of Homs, yesterday’s report from Israeli intelligence outfile DEBKAfile reveals the military strategy being adopted by the NATO powers. In summary this strategy involves an effective annexation of a portion of Syria’s territory under the guise …

By the Editor.
Updated Sunday 26 February, 2012. Click here to go to the update.
Angelina Jolie, Goodwill Ambassador to the UN and member of CFR, is now using her profile to promote NATO’s genocidal ‘humanitarian intervention’ war doctrine.

Bush and who also visited Israel to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Nakba) promotes her new film ‘In the Land of Blood and Honey’, a …
