UK MPs blow a ‘raspberry’ at Netanyahu and his serfs

Debate to recognise Palestine statehood UK MPs blow a ‘raspberry’ at Netanyahoo and his serfs Despite all the veiled threats and the loony posturings of the pro-Israel lobby, Parliament voted 274 to 12 on Monday to recognise Palestine as a State. The motion, as amended, read: “That this House believes that the Government should recognise […]

Which way will UK Parliament jump on Palestinian recognition?

Which way will the UK Parliament jump when it votes on Palestinian recognition? On Monday the House of Commons in London will debate and vote on a parliamentary motion to unilaterally recognise the State of Palestine. A positive result could have a tremendous influence on the state of play in the Palestinians’ struggle for freedom. […]

Palestine’s Last Chance

Is this Palestine’s last chance? Ever since I began taking an interest in the Palestinians’ struggle – nearly ten years ago – those brave people have been cursed with rubbish leadership that has taken them steadily backwards instead of forwards… leadership that studiously ignores Palestine’s friends outside, fails its people inside and allows its territory […]

The Gaza Medical Aid Scandal

The Gaza medical aid scandal: Suffer, little children…. What do our clueless politicians care? The indifference shown by Messrs Obama and Cameron to the slaughter and unimaginable destruction that Israel – the self-styled “only democracy in the Middle East” with “the most moral army in the world” – inflicted on Gaza a month ago is […]

The Wandering Who – FULL

I thought it’d be interesting to resurrect this chat with Gilad Atzmon, three years after I edited it, and see how many of the themes discussed have grown in relevance since 2011. The pernicious role of zionist lobbies and their appetite for war. Another Gazan massacre. Palestinian statehood – and possible access to international tribunals. […]

Gazans were slaughtered. The EU has no comment

Of course, we are aware of the European Union’s commitment to the full and effective protection of Human Rights everywhere. After all, The 2012 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to the European Union (EU) “for over six decades [of contribution] to the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe”. So, when […]

Guns of August II

Cease-fire and its reasons The piping-hot stage of the Ukraine crisis was over with signing of Minsk cease-fire agreement. It is far from clear how long the cease-fire will last, and whether it will morph into stable peace; still this pause provides a chance to review policies and strategies of the sides. The first part […]

UK Independence Party hugs another Friend of Israel

Desperate for its first seat in Parliament UK Independence Party hugs another Friend of Israel The UK Independence Party (UKIP), which hopes for a big breakthrough in next year’s general election, has been wining and dining potential Conservative defectors one of which has actually come across. Last week Douglas Carswell stepped down as MP for […]

Not Silence but Gloating over Galloway

WHY THE SILENCE OVER THE ASSAULT ON GEORGE GALLOWAY? – asks Peter Oborne in an article in The Telegraph. British MP George Galloway was recovering on Saturday after being attacked in the street in Notting Hill, west London, and taken to hospital and treated for a suspected broken rib and bruising to his head. He had been posing […]

Transference of Evil: Netanyahu, a Creature without Morality or Mercy

This is a calculated response to transfer the evil to the victims of Israel’s superior power, to blame Hamas, the government of the people, for their own slaughter. It is indeed an intended deception to cloak the true intention that every living Gazan man, woman and child was and will be for the rest of […]

Free Palestine? First we must free ourselves from the Enemy Within

Western leaders ‘nobble’ the International Criminal Court Free Palestine? First we must free ourselves from the Enemy Within Was anyone surprised to hear that the International Criminal Court is under pressure not to investigate Israel’s war crimes in Gaza? The British government wouldn’t even vote for the UN Human Rights Council’s proposal to launch an […]

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 […]

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 […]

Did Zim Shipping Have Advance Knowledge of 9/11 Attacks?

An Israeli shipping company whose vessel now sits unloaded for a third straight day in Oakland, CA has a peculiar past that raises questions about possible foreknowledge of the September 11 attacks. That, at least, is the gist of a report published earlier this year by Veterans Today, which says that Zim Israeli-American Shipping, the […]

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. A similarly worthless response has been received in other parts of the country so I conclude […]

‘Good Jew’ Fatigue

I have “Good Jew” fatigue, exacerbated by overexposure to ‘As a Jew, I condemn what Israel is doing in Gaza’ public statements being made by a larger than usual number of Good Jews. It is true that this massacre was larger than usual and its intent more openly articulated by Israel, and also that the […]
