Censorship at Southampton University

jewsCensorship

Here is the situation: the threat of aggressive public protests against those assembling to critically discuss the behavior of Israel has become an excuse to shut down such gatherings. The latest example of this tactic, which is really a form of blackmail to impose censorship, took place last week at the University of Southampton in the UK.

China: America’s Uncontrollable Geopolitical Frankenstein

Geopolitical FrankensteinStrange bedfellows: Communist China and Capitalist America! Yet, it has become the indisputable reality that faces the sunset of one empire, and the sunrise of another. Not that such a thing could have been prevented, but did America have to accelerate by a generation or two such a transfer of power? US’ political masochism, in servitude to corporate capitalism, provides the answer in the creation of a take-charge Frankenstein.

A Different Kind of Memorial

by Adam Keller

At last we know when the Israeli-Palestinian conflict began. It started in 1873, exactly seventy-five years before the creation of Israel, and the first casualty in this conflict was Aaron Herschler. His name opens the official list of the Israeli Defense Forces soldiers killed in the line of duty. On Memorial Day every year, that list is broadcast on...

Cats in a Sack

It is a rather disgusting spectacle.

The Israeli Right has won a crushing election victory. (On closer examination, the victory was not quite so crushing. Indeed, there was no victory at all. The crushing victory of Likud was achieved only at the expense of other rightist parties.)

Politics of commemoration

by Rachel Shabi

The last thing we need is a league table of atrocities. On the day marking the 100th anniversary of what some call the Armenian "genocide", in which 1.5 million were killed, it should be obvious that the systematic murder of a people is always unique and uniquely terrible; that suffering is suffering.

USA: Crimes and Impunity

More than four months after publication of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence’s summary report on the secret detention program operated by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the US administration has done nothing to end impunity for the torture and enforced disappearances committed in the program. Indeed, it has failed to meaningfully respond to the report in any...

Oklahoma City and 9/11

This month marks the 20th anniversary of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City, which killed 168 people. The aftermath of the OKC bombing in 1995 was very similar to what occurred after the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001.

Crime And Punishment - Holocaust vs. Paedophilia

Allison Pearson wrote in The Telegraph two days ago, “As Oskar Groening, the so-called Accountant of Auschwitz, goes on trial at the age of 93 for his complicity in war crimes, the 86-year-old Labour peer Greville Janner is excused prosecution for 22 alleged sexual offences against nine boys in his Leicestershire constituency, from the 1960s to the 1980s, because he is suffering...

The Tyranny of Drug Laws

It is difficult to conceive of a greater violation of the principles of freedom than drug laws — that is, laws by which the government punishes people who possess, distribute, or ingest drugs. A free society necessarily entails the right to engage in any peaceful activity, even if it is considered self-destructive, harmful, or irresponsible.
