Regime Change: US’ Failing Weapon of International Deception

maduroFor years, Winston Churchill’s famous quote, “It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried,” has served as Americans’ last word in any political discussion which requires validation of the US government, no matter how corrupt or flawed in its behavior, as the best in the planet, comparatively or by default. Never mind the meaning that Mr. Churchill had intended back in 1947, or how the international political panorama has changed during the past seven decades.



Israel Goes to the Polls

netanyahuThe Israeli Public Speaks

Elections are public windows onto national hopes and concerns, and this was certainly the case with the March 2015 voting in Israel. You just have to look through that window with analytical eyes to assess those national yearnings in their essential details.

Israel's self-destruction path

The 2015 election was a giant step towards the self-destruction of Israel. The decisive majority has voted for an apartheid state between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River, in which democracy will slowly disappear. The decision is not yet final. Israeli democracy has lost a battle. It has not yet lost the war.

Change Versus Continuity in the Philippines

After more than 30 years I recently spent a week in the Philippines, giving a few arranged talks at universities, meeting with NGOs, and old friends who shared their understanding of this fascinating fast growing country of approximately 105 million people living on an archipelago that consists of more than 7,107 islands. Additionally, of course, Manila is a mega-city that exhibits...

Review of Recollection of Things Learned By Gaither Stewart

Gaither Stewart is a man of passions. In The Europe Trilogy he shared with us his passion for international espionage and intrigue. In Voices from Pisalocca he shared his passion for village life in his adoptive country, Italy. In The Fifth Sun he shared his passion for Native-American mythology. Now in Recollection...

Netanyahu's sorry excuse for an apology

by Rachel Shabi

As apologies go, the Israeli prime minister's isn't winning any sincerity awards. Benjamin Netanyahu had, on the day of national elections last week, warned about "Arabs voting in droves", in a shockingly cynical - and successful - attempt to win votes by scaremongering about Israel's 20 percent Palestinian population.

US-Syria Cultural Heritage Cooperation?

Syria’s Director-General of Antiquates and Museums, Dr. Maamoun |Abdul-Karim, as well as other officials including the Ministers of Culture, Information and Tourism often speak of their beloved country being “an open-air museum.” Few would challenge their characterization as the global community focuses increasingly on how to stop crimes against culture which are now widely...

Rethinking the US-Israeli Relationships

The Benjamin Netanyahu on display in the days before and after Tuesday’s Israeli election is the same one who has been in power all these years. Right along, he was there for all to see, so no one should have been surprised by his performance. I seriously doubt that anyone really is surprised.

More US-Sponsored Middle East Aggression

Washington already turned Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria into free-fire cauldrons of violence, instability and chaos. It partners with Israel's long war on Palestine. It backs the most of the world’s worst tinpot despots - all Middle East ones. It's responsible for millions of deaths and appalling human suffering. It's now using Saudi and other thuggish Gulf states as imperial...

Mandatory Voting: A Bad Idea

President Obama thinks that forcing us to vote might be a good idea. That he could favor punishing people for not voting -- which means taking their money by force and imprisoning or even shooting them if they resist -- is unsurprising.

Hindu fringe out against Church

The other day as one opened the newspapers one found that one essential difference between India and Pakistan had been obliterated by events in the two countries.

Defrocked US General Blames Iran for US Crimes in Iraq

Blaming others for its own crimes is longstanding US policy. Lunatic active duty, retired and defrocked Pentagon generals lie like their government counterparts. David Petraeus is one of the worst. On March 20, the neocon Washington Post headlined "Petraeus: The Islamic State isn't our biggest problem in Iraq."

The Southampton University Win/Win Situation

I am thrilled by the Zionist despair surrounding the Southampton University Conference on Israel’s legitimacy. The conference, due to take place next month, plans to examine the legality of Israel in the eye of international law.

The Jewish Left is Not the Solution

It is The Heart of the Problem

I have never met Jeff Halper. What I know about him is that he is an American Jew who settled on Palestinian land but opposes Israeli house demolition. Halper appears to be a participant in the Zionist project while at the same time opposing the measures that have been implemented to sustain that plunderous project.
