Meet Dave – your Christian Dyno-Rod

But don’t expect him to unblock the Holy Land sewer Over the Easter holidays the UK’s prime minister, David Cameron, was on his knees “doing God” in the run-up to European elections. And he sparked a great commotion in the media by claiming Britain is “a Christian country”. Cameron wrote in the Church Times : […]

More threats from Palestine’s nasty neigbour

Israel to extract a heavy price if Palestinians join UN bodies, says minister US-brokered negotiations with Israel, which started on 29 July 2013 and were to last nine months, are nearing their ignominious end. And Israel, the serial defaulter that it is, has reneged on the agreed release of 104 pre-Oslo prisoners in exchange for […]

The Goal of the BDS Movement Is Justice

The Goal of the BDS Movement Is Justice: Israel Denies Justice and therefore does not Exist as a Legitimate State Justice and legitimacy are one and inexorably linked to the Charters and Declarations of the United Nations. This is a truth that Michael J. Rosenberg does not address as he castigates the supporters of the […]

BDS is irrelevant. Oh, really?

“BDS is irrelevant.” Oh, really? What maddens Zionists most is that they cannot control civil society like they can pull the strings of the spineless political élite. They fear BDS action (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) will derail their precious project for a Greater Israel. So they now sneer at civil society and try to discourage […]

Time to target the worst villains of all

BDS must expose our MPs’ unnatural devotion to a foreign power that practises apartheid, defies international law and terrorises children Last week David Cameron, addressing Israel’s Knesset, pledged to defeat any boycotting of Israel. “Britain opposes boycotts,” he said without having consulted the British people on the matter. This should be enough to put the […]

Ukraine & Egypt: A tale of two coups

US plans for Egypt and Ukraine are falling apart and Russia is scrambling to pick up the pieces. In the latest color revolution, it was not an army but a rump parliament that pulled the plug on the elected president on a wave of protest, pushing out Ukraine’s Viktor Yanukovich on 22 February. He apologized […]

Anti-Jewish Ire in France

When will the Palestinians clear the decks?

Let’s shine a light into the ICC’s dusty corners… When will the Palestinians clear the decks for action?

Defending Good and Evil

Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.  –George Orwell Typically, people argue to defend what they do (or believe), attacking opposing views where they can, and ignoring arguments they haven’t considered. The more that kind of activity serves as American foreign policy–whether it’s in […]

Help prod the ICC into action over Israel’s illegal ‘settlements’

The Palestinian leadership won’t do it – will you? Unbelievably, President Mahmoud Abbas and his hapless crew in Ramallah promised the US not to file charges against Israel in the International Criminal Court. Meanwhile the Israeli regime is accelerating its squatter programme on Palestinian territory even in the middle of so-called peace talks, increasing its […]

Walled in by Zionist ugliness The grim horror now surrounding our ‘Little Town of Bethlehem’ London’s Christmas was made gloomier this year – and rightly so – by the appearance in the courtyard of St James’s Church, Piccadilly, of a replica of the hated Israeli annexation Wall that threads its thieving way around the Palestinian […]

The other day Hamas’s political chief, Khaled Meshaal, criticised the Palestinian Authority for “criminalizing armed resistance”.

Jumping the gun on Syria

British people woke for a second morning to the chilling realisation that the US and UK were not waiting for the results of the UN’s enquiries in Syria before launching military intervention. There’s also a suggestion that the UN inspection team’s remit does not include determining blame for the chemical attack (if that’s what it […]

Consistency in Criticizing Crypto-Zionism

Journalist Max Blumenthal is one of those Jews who claim to defend the Palestinians by “disavowing” Gilad Atzmon. Atzmon recently published on his website a video of Blumenthal being interviewed, denouncing Atzmon as “anti-Semitic”. Atzmon countered Blumenthal with his customary sarcasm (1). Blumenthal is a leading member of the “hate industry”, a well-funded, Jewish-led movement […]

Canada’s activists haven’t the foggiest idea how to bring down Harper’s police state

A tyrant‘s greatest power comes not from the authority he wields or the fear he instills in his people. It comes from the passivity of his victims. Believe it or not, Stephen Harper’s despotism might have been terminated long ago if this country’s high-minded, high-principled, ever-so-reasonable defenders had the courage and the will to do […]

Feminists Eating Their Children

Feminism, the political identity pushed by Jewish feminists Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan in the US, which portrays men as the enemy, has conquered its last obstacle in the struggle for women’s “self-realization” — the “bourgeois,” atavistic maternal instinct — and has openly declared war on children. Childhood, as traditionally and scientifically understood by all, […]

Alan Hart’s farewell

I join everyone else in saluting Alan Hart. He has given half a lifetime – and his considerable professional skills – to the Palestinian struggle. Now he’s calling it a day.

White guilt, the SWP, and Zionism

During the nineteen-seventies, Britain’s Socialist Workers Party took the place of the Communist Party. That is, it occupied the role of neutralising opposition to the ruling order. Drawing solely from my own experience, I could describe the party supporting union bureaucrats’ manoeuvres to defeat strikes; stirring up nostalgia for world war II in order to […]
