“There is nothing easier than to hate those who are different; there is nothing easier than to sow fear and terror; there is nothing easier than to behave like animals.”
By Alan Hart For several years I have been wondering, sometimes on public platforms and in writing, if Palestine is a lost cause. I have now come to the conclusion that as things are it is and will remain so unless the Palestinians, the occupied and oppressed and the diaspora, put their political act together […]
Watch this horror movie…. if you can bear to. It stars Palestine’s top negotiator in action. And it’s not pretty.

United States Senator Rand Paul has introduced a Congressional bill that would cut off assistance to the Palestinian Authority so long as it seeks admission to the International Criminal Court.
What Israel regards as “unimaginable restraint” in Palestine by Jerome Roos (with Jim Fetzer) “If this is the IDF showing restraint, as officials claim, what kind of horrific atrocities would it be capable of unleashing if it went ‘all the way’?”–Jerome Roos With the Israeli assault on Gaza in its third week and […]

Andrew Pessin: “You’ve got a rabid pit bull chained in a cage, regularly making mass effort to escape.”
Jim W. Dean…”I assume that the PA’s Abbas and his legal team have some initial charges ready to file, or they might just give the court a whole filing cabinet full of them.”
Mike Harris…”“Israel is doing everything that they can do to prevent the Palestinian Authority (PA) from” going to The Hague.”
In recent months nothing has made me more angry than an article written and posted on 11 December by Alon Ben-Meir with a headline that described the occupied and oppressed Palestinians as being Trapped In Their Public Narrative.
“Lies are much more plausible, more appealing to reason, than reality, since the liar has the great advantage of knowing beforehand what the audience wishes or expects to hear”
NBC is facing questions over its decision to pull veteran news correspondent Ayman Mohyeldin out of Gaza just after he personally witnessed the Israeli military’s killing of four Palestinian boys on a Gaza beach.

Most people considerate racism negative. They fastidiously embed this understanding into their books of law. It is even forbidden by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
To summarize, “discrimination” was largely a reaction to Jewish revolutionary activity around that time, and it largely had little to do with who the Jews were as people. Even some of the universities in Russia were functions of Jewish revolutionary cells, and the government had to take drastic actions in order to restore civility and balance.

For centuries the history of Jews and Black Americans has been one of suffering and humiliation. Ironically, the moment their fortunes turned for the better, they began their new phase with shaming their own respective history.

One of the ways for a U.S. politician to kill their political career is to upset Israel and the very powerful Israel lobby.
It isn’t the American people, it is our economic system, meaning a criminal element that has gained control of our banking, our currency and, to a very major extent, our government. There is no long term ability for the US to survive economically. Bush killed us.
Longstanding Times policy supports wealth and power; war, not peace; US hegemony and imperial rampaging; and all things benefitting Israel.
Libyan diplomats visited Israel to ‘change their country’s image’ MK Sheetrit says that the two came to Israel to promote business plans; Interior Ministry denies havingauthorized visas for the two, who are allied with Gadhafi. (Editorial note: A very lonely story that mysteriously appears when so many “anti-Zionists” are jumping to Gaddafi’s side.) […]
