Anti-Semitism and the Silencing of Debate on Palestinian Human Rights

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 00:08:15 +0000

While militarily strong and facing no existential threats, Zionism and Israel’s policies toward the Palestinians has been taking a beating in world opinion.1 The UN passed six new resolutions against the Jewish state, including one denying Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem 151-6. The United Nations General Assembly in New York passed six resolutions on [November 30, 2017] affirming […]

As Israel marks 70 years, what have been the true costs?

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 16:50:08 +0000

Independence Day celebrations tomorrow should be a moment for Israelis – and the many Jews who identify with Israel – to reflect on what kind of state it has become after seven decades. The vast majority of Israelis, however, are too busy flying blue-and-white flags from their cars, venerating their army as the “most moral […]

Post-Modernism Does Not Go Far Enough!

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 07:05:52 +0000

Post-modernism does not go far enough. It has not overturned all meta-narratives and fully established its essence, that is, a multiplicity of micro-narratives, achieved through a radical “incredulity toward metanarratives”.1 Consequently, post-modernism has yet to realize the post-modern society, that is, a patchwork federation of localized, decentralized and horizontalized micro-institutions, founded on a litany of […]

American Anti-Soviet Union morphs into American Anti-Russia

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 01:48:12 +0000

Unpersons One reason it’s so easy to get an American administration, the mainstream media, and the American people to jump on an anti-Russian bandwagon is, of course, the legacy of the Soviet Union. To all the real crimes and shortcomings of that period the US regularly added many fictitious claims to agitate the American public […]

Fisk Puts to Test the Free-Press Myth in Douma

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 06:14:13 +0000

Here’s how a free press, one owned by a handful of corporations, uses its freedom. It simply tells you what it is good for its business interests, or more generally for the political and business environment it operates in. It’s not interested in truth or airing all sides, or even necessarily basic facts. The only […]

The Sleep of Civilization

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 05:58:44 +0000

Wealth maketh many friends; but the poor is separated from his neighbour. — Proverbs 19:4″ James “Mad Dog” Mattis spoke this week, at a pentagon press briefing, saying, among other things, that it was a time for all civilized nations to unite. The use of this trope ‘civilized’ echoes colonial sensibility. It is part of […]

Israel celebrates “Pyrrhic Victory” as it turns 70

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 00:50:14 +0000

It appears Israelis have every reason to be in festive mood this week as they celebrate the 70th anniversary of their state’s founding. This “Independence Day”, which Israel marks according to the Hebrew calendar, on April 19, the regional, security and diplomatic environment looks to be the most favourable Israel has faced in its short […]

America’s Dystopian Future

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 00:39:10 +0000

Imagine a privatized America where rugged individualism reigns supreme within a vast network of corporate America, Inc., similar to 19th century wild west lifestyle, no social security, no Medicare, no Medicaid, no public law enforcement as individuals stand their own ground. Read all about it in Scott Erickson’s The History of the Decline and Fall […]

Challenging Capitalism through Workers’ Control

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 20:06:04 +0000

Workers’ assembly at Officine Zero, a former night train repair facility, in Rome (Photo: Officine Zero) A common feature in every crisis situation, from the upheavals of the early 20th century to the neo-liberal re-structurings of the late 20th century, is the emergence of workers’ control – workers organising to take over their workplaces in […]

Near Deadly Political Gas Attack On Americans

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 07:03:19 +0000

“Historically, reactionary forces on the verge of extinction invariably conduct a last desperate struggle against the revolutionary forces, and some revolutionaries are deluded for a time by this phenomenon of outward strength but inner weakness, failing to grasp the essential fact that the enemy is nearing extinction while they themselves are approaching victory.” In the […]

Media Cover-up: Shielding Israel is a Matter of Policy

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 05:20:19 +0000

The term ‘media bias’ does not do justice to the western corporate media’s relationship with Israel and Palestine. The relationship is, indeed, far more profound than mere partiality. It is not ignorance, either. It is a calculated and long-term campaign, aimed at guarding Israel and demonizing Palestinians. The current disgraceful coverage of Gaza’s popular protests […]

Macron’s Syria Game

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 05:30:36 +0000

There is a certain bullishness in French circles these days, even if there was an initial attempt, with the Macron government, to calm matters down.  The need to assert Gallic might in the face of brutality has again surfaced; and has a familiar ring to it.  With Syria’s Bashar al-Assad getting more comfortable with military […]

Fisk Rips Away Excuses for Air Strike on Syria

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 04:22:28 +0000

It seems that many who supported the weekend’s air strikes on Syria are missing the significance of Robert Fisk’s report this morning from Douma, the site of a supposed chemical weapons attack last week. Fisk is the first western journalist to reach the area and speak to people there. One is a senior doctor at […]

Crimes of a Monster: Your Tax Dollars at Work

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 02:26:35 +0000

Is ours a government of the people, by the people, for the people, or a kakistocracy rather, for the benefit of knaves at the cost of fools? — James Russell Lowell, 19th century American poet/critic/editor/diplomat, in a 1876 letter to Joel Benton. Let us not mince words. We are living in an age of war […]

Tackling the Dogma of Political Correctness

Sun, 15 Apr 2018 21:37:19 +0000

Over the past year, Jordan Peterson has shot into the public eye with his jihad against political correctness, using YouTube, the new medium for getting one’s beliefs broadcast without corporations, governments and media gatekeepers censuring and burying one’s new ideas. His ideas are radical, but more radically old than new. To him, cherished beliefs are […]

Where on Earth is the Just Economy that works for all, Including Afghan Children?

Sun, 15 Apr 2018 21:09:57 +0000

Political and business leaders have refined the art and science of lying about the economy. From their suites, chauffeur-driven limousines, private yachts and jets, they aren’t too concerned about whether the economy works for everyone, except in speeches and elections. As they tuck into their next fine dining experience, they know that it’s easier and […]

Canada: Justin Trudeau Supported the Illegal Bombing of Syria by the US and Friends

Sun, 15 Apr 2018 02:02:06 +0000

The US has once again flagrantly violated international law. Without UN approval, they launched dozens of airstrikes on Syria. Ottawa immediately supported the US bombing. In a statement Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said: “Canada supports the decision by the United States, the United Kingdom, and France to take action to degrade the Assad regime’s ability […]

Voices of the Syrian People

Sun, 15 Apr 2018 01:31:39 +0000

The attack against Syria – this proud and independent country – has just taken place. Three countries with zero moral mandate to judge or punish anybody; three countries already responsible for hundreds of millions of human lives lost on all continents for centuries, showered Syria with their missiles. They tried to scare to death Syria, […]

The Decree of the Capitalist God

Sat, 14 Apr 2018 22:12:51 +0000

While we were once given a savior who was known as supply side Jesus, sadly it seems the people have again forgotten the holy word. More youth than ever are becoming heretics to the sacred economic texts, but despite these frightening developments not all is lost, for imbued within me is light of understanding from […]

Blind Assault: Trump Strikes Syria

Sat, 14 Apr 2018 20:49:31 +0000

Feeling that some display of force was needed, US president Donald Trump issued orders on Friday to demonstrate some form of muscle, albeit exercised some thousands of miles away.  “A short time ago, I ordered the United States Armed Forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapons capabilities of Syrian dictator […]
