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 …

by Christopher Black, James Henry Fetzer, Alex Mezyaev, Christof Lehmann.
A geo-political analysis of the background for the developments in the South-China Sea, the region, and suggested developments towards regional security and stability.
Christopher Black., James Henry Fetzer, Alex Mezyaev, Christof Lehmann. Subsequent to the dissolution of the USSR, the peaceful transition of Hong Kong from British to Chinese sovereignty and the subsequent opening of the Chinese market for Western investors, a superficial analysis may lead to the conclusion that the international community has missed the chance to establish a geo-political …

Venezuela: A Threat to Washington?

by Eva Golinger, Thursday, July 19, 2012.
From the first time Hugo Chavez was elected President of Venezuela in 1998, Washington and its allies have been trying to undermine his government. When Chavez was just a presidential candidate, the US State Department denied his visa to participate in television interviews in Miami. Later, when he won the presidential elections, Ambassador John Maisto called him personally to congratulate him and offer him a visa. The following months were filled with attempts to “buy” the newly elected President of Venezuela. Businessmen, politicians and …

Opinion: Jonathan Azaziah on Communism

Editor’s note
The following analysis was emailed to me by Jonathan Azaziah after I had asked him for his thoughts on Communism. Specifically I asked Jonathan how one can reconcile the notion that Communism is supposed to be an ideology based on altruism and social justice, while, in the case of the Bolshevik Revolution, it has been characterised by tyranny, terrorism, and unspeakable suffering.
by Jonathan Azaziah.
I do not, repeat, do NOT view Communism (Marxism) as a movement and ideology based on social justice by any means. Communism was not birthed …

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 …
