U.S. fascism reaches the breaking point

Barack Obama’s decision to go crawling to Congress for permission to launch a gratuitous attack on Syria is more than a humiliating climb-down. It could well signal the beginning of the end of the zionist imperial presidency. This might seem like a bold claim—Congress is, after all, still Israeli occupied territory, as Pat Buchanan famously […]

Syria: Parliament and the British people tell Cameron and Hague to cool it

Gung-ho prime minister Cameron and his sabre-rattling lieutenant, William Hague, were so eager to crank up their war machine that they’d lost all caution and reason. They’ve paid the price with a quite brutal Commons defeat. A decade ago the pair voted “very strongly” for the Iraq war, failing to exercise due diligence and establish […]

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 […]

Syria – remember Guernica and Iraq

No one yet knows who was responsible for the horrific chemical attack in Syria, yet our political leaders and politicians have already found the Syrian government guilty. Missile strikes by Western nations on an already terrorised population will only add to the misery, will solve nothing and, without irrefutable evidence, would be irresponsible. Add to […]

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 […]

Freedom_of_Speech

To the BBC – please allow freedom of speech: Open letter to Janice Hadlow | Controller BBC Four – From Leslie Bravery | 21 August 2013.

Dear Janice, The British Broadcasting Corporation’s silencing of Nigel Kennedy’s voice is deplorable. Please ask the BBC to allow freedom speech – which is, after all, the cornerstone of democratic freedom. There is a growing, uncomfortably Orwellian feel to the BBC’s constant censoring of anything that Israel and its supporters may find disagreeable. Among the […]
