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.

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.

“DePaul students don’t want their tuition dollars invested in weapons manufacturers who supply the Israeli government, army and prison services” Why boycotting Israel is so important and necessary Nothing, it seems, is too ridiculous for Nick Clegg, UK Deputy Prime Minister, to contemplate.

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?

“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 […]

Who Will Heal Sydenham’s Sore?

Who will finally heal the ‘running sore in the East’? Do world leaders today even know the underlying causes of the Holy Land’s misery? Hansard is the official verbatim report of proceedings in the UK Parliament.

Right to Resist Oppression

In August 2004, Richard Hugus, critic of progressive injustice, wrote an article on the “Lies of the Israeli Peace Movement”. What Hugus wrote almost ten years ago has as much forgotten or neglected relevance today.
