Israeli Soldier's Warning: "You're Next!"

Israeli Soldier’s Warning: “You’re Next!”

This passionate plea for resistance from an Israeli soldier to the world to stop Israel is not addressed to the Palestinian people, because it is clearer than ever now, after the genocide in Gaza, that even the most barbarous repression is unable to snuff out their will to survive and continue their struggle for justice […]

Freedom to live ordinary lives…

Freedom to live ordinary lives… as per the 2005 promises. That’s all the Gazans want I have just received a very disappointing reply from my true-blue Tory MP to pleas for real government action over the slaughter in Gaza.

Toleration of Israel’s inhumanity condemns UK’s leaders Our ‘Three Stooges’ must go What’s the latest score in this shoot-fish-in-a-barrel spectacle enjoyed by beer-swilling Israelis in deckchairs from the hills overlooking Gaza? 460 Palestinian children and 250 women murdered… 1,938 souls exterminated altogether so far.

The Condom Revolution That Failed

The Color Condom Revolution That Failed is another chapter in the long American history of plots — from the bizarre  and embarrassing to the simply murderous to destabilize Cuba.

A wish-list for the brave Palestinians

What more horrors are in store for Gaza? A wish-list for the brave Palestinians I wonder what Hamas and Israeli leaders are thinking as they survey the devastation in Gaza and review the death-toll and casualty figures?

If ISIS Established a Government, the World will Recognize it as Lawful

What would be world’s reaction to an Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) government? Although it would be very sad to imagine, what if ISIS actually established a stable government?

It’s the new ‘self defence’

Carry on slaughtering the men, women and children you illegally occupy and daily humiliate… It’s the new ‘self defence’ Britain’s newly-minted foreign secretary Philip Hammond has lost his shine already.

The Dementedness Destroying Israel

“They were conquerors, and for that you want only brute force nothing to boast of, when you have it, since your strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others. They grabbed what they could get for the sake of what was to be got. It was just robbery with violence, aggravated murder […]

Seize the moment!

Seize the moment! They want war? Then launch a full-blown BDS assault on Israel and its supporters There was never a better moment for the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement to mass-mobilise for a mega-campaign to not only impact more heavily on the lawless Israeli state but also unmask those in business and public […]

Dead teenagers: Netanyahu’s criminal settlement policy put them in harm’s way

The BBC, that paragon of broadcasting, repeatedly fails to give the necessary context when reporting events in occupied Palestine. The rest of the mainstream media are equally guilty but we still tend to look to the BBC as the standard setter, a lofty position from which it has slid a long way recently. In its […]

UK Methodists still half-hearted about BDS

“We’ll continue dialogue and engage prayerfully” The UK Methodist conference has ducked the opportunity to extend BDS to the whole of Israel. They are content to limit it to firms that operate in the illegally-occupied Palestinian territories for the time being. They sidestepped a proposal to “strengthen the Church’s commitment to Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions […]

US Presbyterians under the cosh for doing their Christian duty

Why do churches let themselves become ensnared in inter-faith ‘friendships’ with extremists? How does it help the quest for peace and harmony?

A look at the Middle East last week

Timid US Presbyterians shun BDS and let Israel off the hook

Timid US Presbyterians punish American companies, shun BDS and let Israel off the hook Pro-Palestinian campaigners are cock-a-hoop over the Presbyterian Church USA’s vote to divest from Caterpillar Inc, Hewlett-Packard and Motorola Solutions.

Sports and The Domestic Violence Hoax

There is an odious myth continuously promoted by feminists: a rise in domestic violence against women by men occurs during major sporting events like the American Football Super Bowl and Soccer’s World Cup.

“Unhelpful” to blame anyone for peace talks breakdown, says British government. Support Kerry and return to pointless negotiations.
