Their government, once in agreement with Iran over Caspian oil finds, now is taking direction from Israel. This may well cause the [...]
Mister Chairman,Excellencies,Ladies and Gentlemen,Exactly a year ago, on 29 November 2011, I expressed, before this august gathering, my concern that “talk of peace has become virtually meaningless” in the face of continuing aggression and occupation of Palestinian and Arab land, and of an ever more hostile and determined strategy of the occupying power to continuously expand control over and possession of Palestinian territory, including exploitation of its resources.

CTJP=Compassion, Truth, Justice, Peace. President Obama’s speech today at the UN drew immediate praise from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his efforts to dissuade Palestinian leaders from pushing for a United Nations vote on statehood, calling Obama’s actions a “badge of honor”.
This week the United States Middle East hypocrisy will be viewed by the world. After 44 years of illegal military occupation by Israel, Palestine is reaching out to the world for recognition and statehood even though their bid for statehood at the UN Security Council will surely be vetoed by Obama
The best way for America to become more secure may well be to dismantle its vast security apparatus.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry has been to Israel more than any other presidential candidate and he believes he’s on a mission from God. In his 11 years in office he also wrested much power away from that states Legislature. This citizen of conscience for US House of Representatives has been to Israel seven times since 2005, but I spent my time in occupied Palestine, on my mission from God: seek truth and report it!

We pay special attention to the so-called “anti-imperialist” camp’s great betrayal of the Libyan people and how, through ignorance, stupidity, dogmatism, naivety and greed for Gaddafi’s money, these faux “leftists” turned their backs on the Libyan people and supported the murderous Gaddafi regime.
Sovereignty and a New Reality: Palestinian Statehood at the United Nations. Ambassador Areikat spoke to the question of why the PLO is only now bringing this request to the UN – stating that US President Barack Obama’s speech at the UN General Assembly in September 2010 served as a point of encouragement for the action.

Dear Folks, I know you have all heard of a mythical term called ‘oversight’. The context most familiar to you could be anything from the Federal Reserve, defense contracting overruns, to the Pentagon’s black operations. But Greg Palast is going to introduce us to the nuclear unicorn today.
Political donation laundering-rechanneling (PDLR) is a business in its own right, whether it is for pre-election donations or post-election maintenance contributions. In most cases, PDLR requires savvy strategists and planners, quick-witted implementers, friends and enablers in high-places, and a high degree of creativity, almost to the point of being artistic.
