“We Are Not Enemies on Account of Religion, our Enemy Is the Occupation” says Hamas Leader

Israel’s Operation Protective Edge (OPE) was well-planned premeditated aggression. It had nothing to do with Hamas rockets. It wasn’t about crushing Palestine’s legitimate government. Israel needs enemies. When none exist, they’re invented. They’re blamed for Israel’s crimes. OPE was about preventing Palestinian self-determination. It was to maintain occupation harshness. It was to keep stealing Palestinian land. It was to expand settlements exponentially. It was to control all valued parts ...Read full article...

University of Illinois Fired Professor for Criticizing Israel

Criticizing Israel is the third rail in American politics, the major media and academia. Cynthia McKinney twice lost her congressional seat in 2002 and 2006. Supporting Palestinian rights was costly. DePaul University denied Norman Finkelstein tenure for his outspokenness and books like “The Holocaust Industry.” It did so despite calling him “a prolific scholar and an outstanding teacher.” It went further. It cancelled his classes. It placed him on ...Read full article...

Ukraine Crisis Continues

Having served Washington’s propaganda purposes, the downed Malaysian airliner and the alleged Russian armored column that entered Ukraine and was allegedly destroyed have dropped out of the news even though both stories remain completely and totally unresolved. Washington’s stooge government in Ukraine has not released the records of communications between Ukrainian air traffic control and Malaysian flight 17, and Washington has not released the photos from its satellite which ...Read full article...

Russia: Waging Peace in Ukraine

Throughout months of conflict in Southeastern Ukraine, Russia has gone all-out to resolve things diplomatically. Yet Putin bashing never quits. He’s viciously demonized. Truth is buried. Facts are conveniently twisted. He’s wrongfully accused of supplying weapons and fighters to aid Southeastern Ukrainian anti-government forces’ liberating struggle. His spokesman, Dmitri Peskov, categorically denies Russia’s involvement. “We have said repeatedly that no equipment is being supplied there,” he said. No Russian ...Read full article...

American-appointed Thugs Never Want to Leave Power

“I’m still the head of government,” said a defiant Nuri al Maliki, who refuses to accept his replacement as Prime Minister of Iraq. Maliki has called for the Federal Court to rule before giving way to Haider al Abadi, to whom President Fuad Masum ordered last Monday to form a new Executive. However, the abandonment of his allies, including Iran, makes it unlikely that the al-Maliki’s stubbornness will survive the ...Read full article...

United States Crafting Legislation to Incite World War III

Republican Senator and ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Bob Corker, is the most recent inciter of global war, as he is the main sponsor of the Russian Aggression Prevention Act of 2014.
