Beheading Stock Value Threatened by Dumping

Cameron got his much needed beheading video and expressed appropriate revulsion as well as his determination to join the US “Coalition of the Willing to Attack Syria.” I am summarizing; those were not his exact words. Apparently the videos released by SITE showing the beheadings of the two somewhat American, not all that humanitarian and […]

Thank You, MEMRI!

MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute) is … But let us be fair and admit that MEMRI also does a service to the Western world by promoting Arab and Muslim culture, and their views and attitudes towards Israel and its supporting Western powers.

9/11 — The Plus Side

Millions have died, a never-ending “war on terror” is being pursued, the US Constitution (starting with the Bill of Rights) has been shredded, all as a direct result of 9/11. All this is true and amply documented. Nevertheless, I think it is time now that someone tried to approach the far more difficult topic of the […]

Ukraine-Conflict

Russia guilty of improper humanitarian aid

After Russia’s delivery of humanitarian aid to eastern Ukraine on August 22-23, US and Ukrainian officials accused the Russians of invasion, breach of sovereignty and military intervention.  In order to clarify the legal implications of the action, I consulted a Ukrainian expert who prefers to remain anonymous for fear that it might affect his chocolate […]

The Holocaust™/Anti-Semite© Card

The Holocaust™/Anti-Semite© Card, Don’t Leave Home without it!   Adverts occasionally sneak into blogs disguised as comments. We realize what they are and simply scroll over them. I found this one, posted by someone who signs ‘LeseMajeste,’ appended as a comment to the Holocaust Triptych article initially published elsewhere. I realized immediately that it actually […]

Here is an example of daringly irreverent German satire. The video is in German (without captions in English) but RT provides a summary of […]

Don’t Shoot I’m Your Granpa!

“Don’t Shoot, I’m Your Granpa’!” could be the slogan of Poroshenko’s new measure meant to deal with the two serious problems in Ukraine’s military: desertions of hundreds of soldiers sent to Novorossiya to fight the fratricidal war decreed by the oligarchs’ junta and the burning of draft cards by Ukrainians who refuse to get conscripted […]

Wow! Stewart, Colbert speechless about Gaza

CORRECTION:  Stewart did this segment on July 14, 2014: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqKu5rSTyP8. Obviously, nothing of significance has happened since then, which means that no muzzling is taking place. This reporter has learned that by an extraordinary coincidence, neither Jon Stewart of The Daily Show nor Stephen Colbert of The Colbert Report has anything to say about the […]

John Kerry: Thank God for al-Nusra!

As President Obama proposes to raise the level of US involvement in Syria and Iraq, I sat down with Secretary of State John Kerry to discuss the roles of Jabhat al-Nusra, the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and the countries that all know what is better for Iraq and Syria than do […]

US Map of Religions

I came across this 2010 map of the distribution of self-declared non-Christian religious affiliations in the US by state and while some of the information in it was not surprising, much of it was nothing short of a revelation to me. It explains not only the stranglehold Buddhism has over our public life and culture […]

Palestinian officials had […]

The Auschwitz Museum Badly Mismanaged

Auschwitz Museum Hit By Theft And Vandalism, says Caitlin Marceau in a wrong-headed report published in Shalom Life: “From stealing barbed wire that kept millions imprisoned, to writing “I had a smoke here” on the bunks, tourists have been leaving an unwanted mark on the already scarred grounds of Auschwitz.

Ukrainians to Obama

A reporter asks a group of Ukrainians in the city of Kramatorsk (where by some accounts 39 people were killed today, most of them intentionally burned to death) what they think about Obama. They start gesticulating and talking all at the same time and I am sure they are trying to express their admiration and gratitude to […]

Osama Bin Laden — the Gift That Keeps on Giving

Carlotta Gall has a lot of it. Gall. Maybe “gall” is the wrong word due to its pejorative connotation. Carlotta is a brave journalist reporting truthfully in the bastion of accurate reporting, NYT, not caring about appearances. So all her reports align with the neocon agenda, so be it! Let the chips fall where they […]

Queen Esther Competition — A proposal

Israel holds a Miss Holocaust Survivor competition, “designed to help the contestants and the survivors watching to come to grips with their survival and boost their self-esteem.” I was impressed to read that the pageant’s organizers on this occasion were The International Christian Embassy, a pro-Israel evangelical organization that partners with Helping Hand for a […]

Dieudonnée: “We’re All Slaves of the Same System”

This video was taped before one of (if not the very) last performance of Dieudonnée’s show The Wall, which was banned thereafter and for which he was sued again (a total of about a dozen suits) for “incitement to hate.” In addition to a summarized translation I have included links and footnotes to clarify the […]

Dieudonée’s Humor Test

With thanks to Paul Eisen (‘The Jews’ complain’) for discovering this short film. This short silent film is called The Anti-Semite, which is what Dieudonée’s detractors have labelled him.
