Palestine, Israel, and America: The Strategic Void

Palestine, Israel, and America: The Strategic Void

Let us admit it to ourselves, once and for all. The battle of Palestine for the Palestinians has been lost. The odds against them and their scattered network of supporters have been great. The last possible chance to at least stave off defeat was stillborn last year, when the Goldstone Report on Gaza was endorsed by the UN Human Rights Commission and the UN General Assembly, and then — simply stopped.

Uncomfortable Truths in Palestine

Uncomfortable Truths in Palestine

Far too often, what is not said, or cannot be said, publicly is more significant than the platitudes bandied about by assorted political leaders and pundits. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the ongoing Palestinian-Israeli matrix of death and disinformation.

Benghazi and Gaza: A Tale of Two Different Cities

Benghazi and Gaza: A Tale of Two Different Cities

I have no brief for Libya’s government, and it doesn’t seem to make much sense at this point to debate whether or not the military action now taking place against it is, or is not, justified.

9/11 Sounds from the Ground

One of the most extraordinary aspects of the entire 9/11 tragedy is the extent to which real-time reports from what came to be known as “Ground Zero” at the World Trade Center of secondary explosions and planted devices disappeared from the public discussion and the record almost immediately, never to resurface in any detail in the mainstream media or the 9/11 Commission Report. All one heard officially was the tale of 19 Arabs on 4 planes, solely and completely responsible for all of the death & destruction on that day.

Israel’s Hidden Faces

Israel’s Hidden Faces

This is not intended for those who follow these issues, but as a primer for a general public (especially Americans) who do not follow them, and in fact are not even aware that they are issues! Hoping that others may also find useful material in it.
