Israel Divides the Jews

Rabbi Rick JacobsSomething significant recently happened in the ongoing political-ethical drama that grips Israel and, by extension, Jewish communities worldwide. As reported by the Jewish Daily Forward on on 6 November 2015, Rabbi Rick Jacobs, the president of the Union for Reform Judaism (a position that makes him the leader of largest Jewish denomination in the United States), publicly broke with Israel’s political and religious leadership.



Saddam Hussein’s Revenge: The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL)

Saddam HusseinWhen will America’s half-witted elite running the Pentagon and the State Department see the light and acknowledge that perhaps the US lacks the qualifications, or resources, to run, or strongly influence, geopolitics throughout Planet Earth?  That might’ve been feasible for two-three decades following World War II, but the late 1970’s are long past and US’ dominance of the world’s economic output has shrunk, now just 18 percent vs. 28 percent in 1950 (re: Maddison Project).  And so has our military dominance.

Foreign Policy Comes Back to Haunt Us

From the start, opponents of the American empire warned that the government could not violate the rights of foreigners without eventually violating the rights of Americans. An excellent example is William Graham Sumner's post-Spanish-American War classic "The Conquest of the United States by Spain." The anti-imperialists were spot-on,...

Committee room 9 Houses of Parliament

Organised by the Palestinian Return Centre (PRC) and  the Council of European Palestinian Relations (CEPR) this vital seminar, which was held on the 17 November 2015, took on a more poignant atmosphere. Especially in light of the acts of violence perpetrated just days earlier where ‘seven coordinated attacks’ apparently from...

The Karma of Terror

Terrible terrorists are killing our soldiers in their countries and killing us here at home. How can we stop them?

The answer is simple: Stop terrorizing them. We started this war. What we do to others comes back on us.

Karl Marx on Religion

by Dr. Nasir Khan

Note: I am reproducing one section of Chapter 4 (pp. 146-153) from my book, Development of The Concept and Theory of Alienation in Marx’s Writings (1995). My aim is to present Marx’s ideas on religion in the context of his theory of alienation for a wider audience. For complete abbreviations and references, see the book (link provided at the end...

The Failure of U.S. Foreign Policy in the Middle East

While focusing on the ‘failure’ of American foreign policy in the Middle East it is relevant to acknowledge that given the circumstances of the region failure to some degree was probably unavoidable. The argument put forward here is that the degree and form of failure reflected avoidable choices that could and should have been corrected, or at least mitigated over time, but...

A Peep into Cheney’s Exceptional: Why the World Needs a Powerful America

How remarkable that the book that tops the New York Times best seller list is authored, if one were to see through the eyes of mid-Eastern victims of American/Israeli invasions since 9/11, by a war criminal.

How Many Turkeys Died For Your Dinner

We’ve spent such a large portion of the past year cringing at the prospect of potential disasters crouching behind every bush: ISIS, Putin, Trump, Belicheck, lion- killing dentists, that a national holiday right about now is a blessed respite. For one 24- hour period, the whole country can focus on something benign. Unless, you’re a Black Friday shopper. But those are self-...

Academic Workers for a Democratic Union at The New School

“Education should be free. The United States is the richest country in the world, yet students have to take on crippling debt in order to get a college education."

This is only one among innumerable comments on social network media by the frustrated students in the US these days. Recently, students across the US  walked out of classrooms to protest ballooning student...

Fear Is the Name of the Game

President Obama announced, “We do not succumb to fear.” What did he mean with his use of the pronoun “we”?

Guardian admits its cowardice over Paris

by Jonathan Cook

From the horse’s mouth: For fear of upsetting readers, the paper silenced any commentary in the first days after the Paris attacks that might have suggested there was a causal relationship between western foreign policy in the Middle East and those events.

The Pollard case: US-Israel relations in a nutshell

by Rachel Shabi

It's a story of betrayal or loyalty, seen as a display of a "love for Zion" or personal greed; it has gripped Israel for decades, and now, it is finally reaching its conclusion.

Let the Refugees In

Hysteria over the Islamic State is now focused on the refugees seeking to escape the violence in Syria and Iraq. Predictably, the Republican-controlled House yesterday voted to increase background checks on potential refugees, a demand for omniscience that would amount to exclusion. The bill faces trouble in the Senate, however, and President Obama, who wants to admit 10,000 refugees...
