Perpetuating Christmas misery… Christian priests who support the regime that trashes Bethlehem When I criticised one of the 12 MPs who recently voted against Palestinian statehood, I found myself immediately under attack in the press from a local churchman for my “anti-Israel outburst”.

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 […]

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.

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.

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 […]

Human Rights Watch Calls this an ‘Apparent’ War Crime

Gee, thanks, Human Rights Watch. We never would have guessed. Despite the video evidence, and despite the report released yesterday by HRW, Israel continues to insist that live ammunition wasn’t fired.

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.

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.

“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 […]
