A US official with facial hair? No way.


John Bolton is the first US official with facial hair hired for a high post in government in many years. In fact, one of the strongest objections that Trump had about him was his mustache. Read more on this matter from an academic perspective.

George Nader


He was very close to the Syrian regime in the 1990s, especially the bribable `Abdul-Halim Khaddam.

So now calling someone a "son of dog" (which Arabs use against one another) is anti-Semitic


Every day, Zionists introduce new meanings to the term anti-Semitic, thereby really undermining the effort to combat real anti-Semitism.

I came across this by Brecht


“The great political criminals must certainly be exposed, and preferably through ridicule. Because above all, they are not great political criminals, but the perpetrators of great political crimes, which is something utterly different.”

Notice in US media, it never mentions Syrian rebels as culprits when...Syrian rebels bomb


Look at this story, it identifies Syrian regime and Russian when they bomb, but does not mention that Syrian rebels did the bombing of Damascus. It leaves the impression that the identify of bombers of Damascus are unknown.

Hasan Nasrallah speaking on foreign female domestic workers


Yesterday, Hasan Nasrallah became the first head of an Arab political party to publicly champion the rights of female domestic workers and people of special needs. In response, I am sure Human Rights Watch will say: but he is sending missiles to the Huthis. It is high time that the issue of female domestic workers becomes a national priority for all Arabs. Their mistreatment is a regional disgrace.

On banning my blog in Germany


Jörg from Berlin wrote me this: 
" In January the German parlament passed a declaration that every attempt to boykott Israel would be considered antisemitic etc. Activists are facing a lot of problems, for instant it is difficult to find rooms for meetings and congresses etc.".

A Princeton Middle East Expert explains why Muhammad bin Salman is a great man


""Haykel described Mohammed as an “optimist by temperament,”a pious man who drinks Coke Zero and has the retail political skills of Bill Clinton.“He shakes hands, he remembers names, he doesn’t talk down to people.”"

Yemeni so-called President


Western media have not reported that Mansour Hadi has been imprisoned in Saudi Arabia.

Women were not invited


Crown Prince in the Oval Office


Never has a visitor to the Oval Office been insulted in this manner. Trump covered the Saudi Crown Prince with boards to show arms sales and to underline the true nature of the relationship between the two countries. And the Crown Prince laughs.

The crook and the despot


The man to the left bribed the man to the right, while the man to the right helped overthrow the man to the left. Both deserve what befell them.

Sinan Antoon on the anniversary of the Iraq invasion


"I was one of about 500 Iraqis in the diaspora — of various ethnic and political backgrounds, many of whom were dissidents and victims of Saddam’s regime — who signed a petition: “No to war on Iraq. No to dictatorship.” While condemning Saddam’s reign of terror, we were against a “war that would cause more death and suffering” for innocent Iraqis and one that threatened to push the entire region into violent chaos. Our voices were not welcomed in mainstream media in the United States, which preferred the pro-war Iraqi-American who promised cheering crowds that would welcome invaders with “sweets and flowers.” There were none."

Muhammad bin Salman


By the way, in the 60 minutes interview, the Arabic of MbS was not translated literally. It was edited from Arabic and improved in English sentences. I suspect that MbS propaganda office arranged for how own translation.

Emily Nasrallah's obituary in AP and New York Times


Many of the local Lebanese correspondents of Western media tend to be Western-educated individuals who are not generally deeply rooted in Arabic culture.  For that the AP obituary and this New York Times obituary really missed the point about her.  New York Times writer identified her as an "activist".  She was not really an activist.  What ever soft liberal feminism was gleaned from her novels.  

In its obituary of Lebanese novelist, Emily Nasrallah, New York Times published her picture with Ghassan Kanafani without identifying him


It published this picture but it didn't identify the others.  They are from left: Emily Nasrallah, Jamil Jabr, Halim Barakat, Ghassan Kanafani, and Yusuf Habshi Al-Ashqar.  It was too much for the paper to identify Kanafani.



US Media rule: when an Arabic speaking, pro-US despot is interviewed on US TV, the interpreter is somebody who has a soft voice and an American accent. But if the Arabic speaking despot is not an ally of the US, the interpreter has a very rough voice and a thick Arabic accent.


15th anniversary of U.S. war on Iraq


“From the nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to the poisoning of Vietnam with Agent Orange, to the military contamination of Iraq, to the millions of cluster bombs fired at Lebanon in 2006 by the US-sponsored state of Israel - many of which failed to explode on impact and thus still pose a deadly hazard to children and other civilians - it seems there are plenty of ways to indefinitely prolong unnecessary human suffering.” (thanks Amir)

A UN Panel explains why rape and sexual violence by Syrian rebels are not as bad as by the Syrian regime


"Rape and sexual violence by armed opposition groups was not systematic, the panel said".  OK.

Africa's White Farmers


Of all the people of Africa, there is no question that Western governments and media are obsessed with the White Farmers in the continents.  They only seem to care about them.

Who is afraid of the dark?


“I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken-down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.”

And yet the New York Times is reviewing yet another film on the Israeli terrorist attack in Entebbe


"Within a year, no fewer than three movies about the raid were released, two of them on American television networks."
