The Zionist Cuckoos in Christianity’s Nest

  If you are as puzzled as I am how a true Christian could possibly be taken in by Zionism, a short paper on the phenomenon is available from Sadaka “The destiny of the Jewish people is to return to the land of Israel and reclaim their inheritance promised to Abraham and his descendants […]

Futile posturing at the 2012 Seoul Nuclear Security Summit

US President Barack Obama says he is pushing for “a world without nuclear weapons.” Disingenuously lumping together the nuclear-armed state of North Korea and nuclear-weapon-free Iran, Mr Obama claimed that a “new international norm” was emerging to deal with their “intransigence”. Perversely turning a blind eye towards the West’s double standards and special allowances for […]

The Massacre of the Afghan 17 & the Obama Cover-Up

The March 11 Massacre of the 17 Afghan citizens, including at least nine children and four women, raises many fundamental issues about the nature of a colonial war, the practices of a colonial army engaged in a prolonged (eleven-year) occupation and the character of an imperial state as it commits war crimes and increasingly relies […]

Fools Gold – Tungsten Bars

I first heard about this story some years ago, but little evidence existed at that time. Essentially that America had created a load of fake gold bars and sold them onto the world market. Well to be clear,  they were gold plated with Tungsten in the middle. The reason being is that Tungsten has a […]

Ali Abunimah & Gilad Atzmon at the OK Corral

The recent open letter Granting No Quarter: A Call for the Disavowal of the Racism and Antisemitism of Gilad Atzmon, apparently written by Ali Abunimah, has come as a shock to many people, including yours truly. Not only have the Zionists colonized Palestine and subjected them to a permanent campaign of genocide, but as anyone who has been paying […]

The Last Americans

December 28th 2012 marks the 122nd Anniversary of the U.S. massacre of Native Americans at Wounded Knee. The United States of America was founded upon genocide, amassed a fortune from slavery and now sustains its weakened edifice through rape and armed robbery. Its presidents, with a few honourable exceptions, were Rothschild appointed stooges: obedient, homicidal […]

Broadbent’s broadside hints at short shelf life for a Mulcair-led Opposition

UPDATED WITH RESULT Soon, the New Democratic Party will have a new leader. Whether it will have any meaningful political future is another matter. I’ve already shown that a Thomas Mulcair victory would formally complete the Israelization of Canada’s national political parties, thereby depriving voters of their last Canadian electoral option. Lamentably, many delegates to […]

Karimovs Cash In

UK Defence Secretary Philip Hammond’s visit to Tashkent on 28 February was not covered in any UK mainstream media that I can find, which is peculiar, given the media’s obsession with covering anything to do with “Our heroes” in Afghanistan. It was not really the kind of visit the state would want to publciise, with […]

In Denial – the politics of global warming

The term “holocaust denial” is defined as follows by the American Anti-Defamation League: Holocaust denial is a contemporary form of the classic anti-Semitic doctrine of the evil, manipulative and threatening world Jewish conspiracy. It was this doctrine that was instrumental in laying the groundwork for the Holocaust. What is on the surface a denial of […]

A Modern St George and a Tribe of Dragons

A modern St George vowed one day to save his people from the ravages of a tribe of dragons. These monsters had been setting fire to towns and villages throughout the land, and if something wasn’t done soon, there would be none of his people left to save. Of course St George knew very well that not […]

Afghanistan: Mainstream Media Awakes

This morning Sam Kiley, Sky News’ security correspondent, stated bluntly that the large bulk of Afghan heroin and opium production is controlled by members of the Karzai government. That is a simple truth, and I have been publishing it repeatedly on this blog for the last six years, but it runs absolutely contrary to what […]

Netanyahu v Obama – What next?

The headline over an article in Ha-aretz by Bradley Burston on Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s poker game with President Obama was If Obama wins in November, is Netanyahu in trouble? That’s a question I’ve had in my own mind for quite some time and it begs another. What, really, worries Netanyahu most – the prospect […]

Permission to examine “Jewishness”

In-fighting is characteristic of progressive movements.  On the right things are much easier.  They want a “survival-of-the-fittest” society, small government, low taxes, no safety- net, no brown-skinned people crossing our borders,  the right to unlimited profits un-hampered by any oversight or regulations, the right to claim foreign natural resources and to take advantage of cheap […]

I’m So Glad We’ve Got Gilad

The attack on Gilad Atzmon by the UK Palestine Community Network, relayed on Ali Abunimah’s blog, is a depressing reminder that an influential section of Palestinian opinion has accepted the narrative about Israel-Palestine preferred by most (supposed) pro-Palestinian Jews. That is, of course their right. There is an argument for saying that Zionism is a […]

Israel’s Goebbelian Ploy

No justification for war or sanctions on Iran The hysteria over Iran’s nuclear capabilities having reached such a stage as to call for immediate bombing of its nuclear facilities – this hysteria is a red herring, a smokescreen deliberately and insidiously being whipped up by Israel to turn away the world’s gaze from its vicious […]

Gingrich’s “Invented People” & A Collectivist Distortion of History

  Newt Gingrich’s recent comments that the Palestinians are an “invented people”, while technically correct, is nothing new to the Israel Palestine discourse. The argument has a long history of usage amongst those who seek to distort the history of mass ethnic cleansing and human rights abuse against Palestinians by Israeli Zionist forces. However, the […]

Zionist Bullying in the West Coast Co-op Movement

Several articles on have described the power of Zionism in corrupting progressive groups in Britain, e.g. Laura Stuart’s A Victory for Bullies Everywhere(2012). It’s the same in the USA. In the summer of 2009, just as the west coast co-operative movement was gearing up to adopt a resolution boycotting Israeli goods, there was a […]

The Writing on the (Apartheid) Wall

History has proven that the more recent the wall, the faster the collapse of the regime that built it. 1803: Rothschild funded British invaders conquer the land of India and build the Salt-Tax or Salt-Hedge wall across the country. 137 years later, the British are defeated and retreat. 1830: Rothschild funded French invaders conquer Algeria […]

We Are All For Diversity – But Not That Kind – Not Yet Anyway

There are faculty at Hobart and William Smith Colleges who are anti-Zionists, that is, they oppose the chauvinistic, Jewish-supremacist colonization of historical Palestine and the 44-year dehumanization of Palestinians living in the Occupied Territories. Yet like faculty at most American Colleges and Universities they mostly remain “in the closet” out of fear of being smeared […]

Is the Angry Arab an Anti-Racist Racist?

We have noticed that As’ad Abu Khalil (AKA Angry Arab) is critical of our writer Gilad Atzmon, whom he labels as an anti Semite and a racist. Angry Abu Khalil failed to substantiate his accusations against Atzmon. Needless to say we also have never found a single anti-semitic or racist argument or statement in Atzmon’s […]
