  • Nixonian Donald Trump threatens writers who dare Criticize him
    • " I find the press to be extremely dishonest. I find the political press to be unbelievably dishonest.”

      "In August he tweeted that “It is not ‘freedom of the press’ when newspapers and others are allowed to say and write whatever they want even if it is completely false!”

      As a corbyn supporter who has watched uk msm vilify and write the most blatant lies about the man and his supporters I have some sympathy with his comment.

      Personally I would like to see msm in uk broken up with no one allowed to own or influence more than 10%, and if a story or statement is written that proves to be completely false then the writer and proprietor should be heavily fined.

  • Corruption: Israeli Police recommends prosecuting wife of PM Netanyahu
    • If this brings down Netanyahu the way will be clear for Lieberman to run the country ... god help us!

  • Fearing the Bern, Billionaire Bloomberg Threatens to Buy Election for Establishment
    • "Bloomberg, on the other hand, would be a self-declared moderate denouncing the perceived extremism to his left and right from the major parties."

      Sanders extreme ... hahahahaha ... he's not even speaking out against the barbarism of Israel.

  • "Stunning" Sanders Surge in Iowa over Clinton on Healthcare, Wall Street Stands
    • Very good news, if he will just raise the subject of Israel's nuclear bomb and their barbaric occupation of Gaza I might just donate to his cause.

  • Israeli plan for minorities slammed as bid to 'divide and conquer'
    • "The plans followed the earlier announcement of a 15 billion shekel ($3.8 billion) five-year plan to address the gaps in access to infrastructure and discrepancies in rights between Palestinians with Israeli citizenship and their Jewish counterparts."

      So Israel has finally admitted their are discrepancies in rights !! ... and no doubt the money will come from US taxpayer !!

  • Media Blackout on Bernie Sanders Continues even though he leads Trump in Polls
    • We in the west are truly free because we have democracy ... no dictatorships or military coups for us lucky people ... we the people can elect anyone we like (providing of course the elite let us know who is standing) and if by some chance the newcomers views are slightly at odds with the views of the 1% (such as Jeremy Corbyn in UK) then of course he / she will be reported about but only in the most vitriolic terms whereby every single blemish of their personality / clothing / likes dislikes / facial hair / etc etc will be ridiculed and highlighted but the one thing which wont be highlighted is his / her policies ... its a wonderful system we have and we should all be proud that we live in a free country and have democracy!

  • Separating anti-Semitism from Anti-Zionism
    • "The manipulative use of the charge of "anti-semite" is being used to counter moral objection to instances of Israel's despicable behavior. The meanings of language evolve from de-facto usage, not from authoritative definition, therefore, by it's use to shield immoral behavior, the meaning of "anti-semite" will gradually come to be accepted as "against immoral behavior".

  • Surprise! Male Chauvinist Pig Trump gets vulgar with Hillary Clinton
    • None of this surprises me anymore .. politicians everywhere pander to those with limitless money and those with limited intelligence ... a frightening combination!

  • 41% of Trump Supporters want to bomb Aladdin and Jasmine
    • "The poll seems to me to demonstrate that some significant proportion of Americans, and roughly 30% of Republicans ...." are unbelievably stupid would have been a better ending!

  • Israeli Occupation Court Sentences Palestinian Legislator for Thought Crimes
  • Angered that EU labels Squatter W. Bank Products, Israel suspends EU from "Peace Process"
    • 'Suspended from the peace process' HAHAHA as if war criminl Netanyahu has ever had any intention of coming to a political settlement with Palestinians ... he wants them gone and when the next US president unleashes war on Iran paving the way for Israel to launch its war of territorial expansion on some false flag pretext the first thing to happen will be Palestinians driven out as the majority were in 1948.

      What US EU politicians don't realise or are bribed to keep their mouths shut is that likud is more fanatical than genghis khan and if their empire ever does materialise we will literally become what former Chief Rabbi Ovadia Yosef famously stated "goyim are born to serve the people of Israel".

  • Netanyahu taps Squatter who called Obama Muslim hate sympathizer, as he demands $5 bn./yr. from U.S.
    • Netanyahu's contempt for US taxpayers and the lives of US soldiers is beyond belief ... only surpassed by the US taxpayers and US soldiers acceptance of his contempt

  • Shimon Peres doubts Israel can win Permanent war or Survive Annexation of West Bank
    • “A politician and a government should be judged by one way only, on the record of what you do or did, not on what you say . . .”

      Oh really ... well let's judge Mr Peres on what he did;

      "He ordered innocent victims slaughtered on his watch. He’s a serial killer multiple times over. He bears direct responsibility for crimes too grave to be ignored. 

      link to

      And of Ovadia Yosef who once stated that "goyim are like donkeys ... born to serve the people of Israel" Peres said;

      "The hand that was still warm and I kissed his forehead which to me looked more noble than ever. When I squeezed his hand, I felt that I was squeezing the hand of history and when I kissed his forehead, I thought that I was kissing the majesty of Israel,” he said.

      Peres like Netanyahu should be in the dock for war crimes and our politicians should be ostracising him for his blatant racism.

  • An American Citizen Apologizes to the Iraqi People
    • *and* work to make sure it never happens again."

      one way to achieve that would be for governments throughout the supposedly first world to acknowledge that the charge to invade / destroy Iraq and ensure secretarian chaos for the future was lead by zionists (perle feith wolfovitz) following CLEAN BREAK proposals that called for the destruction of Israel's militarily powerful neighbours. This same set of war criminals are behind the tragedy in Libya / Syria and even now still pushing for the bombing of Iran. Until governments face up to this 'fact' Israel firsters will push for further destruction wherever they see a threat irrespective of whether such action is necessary or warranted. They are, I repeat, war criminals along with Blair and Bush and should face trial at the hague ... but as we have seen on countless occasions this 'fact' immediately labels the author as anti semitic and their careers and lives are destroyed by zionist controlled / manipulated media leaving only those who close their eyes to the real 'fact' to wring their hands and issue meaningless apologies and hope it won't happen again leaving the way clear for AIPAC / Netanyahu and Co to continue pushing their lies and distortions and financing any presidential candidate who has the obliteration of Iran as their principle platform.

    • Jefftry Ruoff ... "Does it make strategic sense, even for Likud, to surround Israel with failed states?"

      Failed states don't have an army which makes conquering them to establish 'greater Israel' that much easier.

    • " to the botched occupation"

      The Iraq occupation wasn't botched .. read CLEAN BREAK and you will understand that the occupation was meant to leave Iraq in chaos .... its part of Likud's strategy to have its powerful neighbours decimated by US money and NATO lives in readiness for the war to create greater Israel.

  • From Canada as Hawk to Canada as Peacemaker in Mideast
    • "We “liberal bigots” are in fact defined by the fact that we can’t agree on anything,"

      Very true and is one reason why I ceased being 'a liberal' the other being that whle liberals wrng their hands insisting that justice for the majority is only a matter of time the 'right' are financing political campaigns .... destroying the careers of individuals who protest .... ignoring international laws .... stealing what they want by wars or terror ... (israel being the current example) meanwhile the majority wait with baited breath for the next iPhone while lamenting their offspring cannot get a job.

    • There will be no chance of peace in the mid east while likud thugs are in the ascendancy and their billionaire supporters are financing pro israel politicians. The ONLY solution is a total and complete boycott of this mudererous regime, taking private donations out of political campaigns and nationalising banks.

  • Yemen: Coalition Airstrikes Hit Hospital
    • Eventually MSF will stop it's work because it will be unable to guarantee the safety of its staff. Today's neo cons out to rule the world and crush the opposition want that to happen ... we are faced with tyrants and muderers that make genghis khan look like a liberal.

  • Let's not forget: the real drivers behind Palestinian anger
    • "Prime Minister Netanyahu has recently announced his readiness to re-enter negotiations"

      Anyone who believes that is extraordinarily naive .... netanyahu believes in greater Israel ... he is also a thief (having stolen parts for nuclear weapons) and a liar (having said for 20 years that Iran is "weeks" away from having a nuclear bomb. His and the likud ambition is to destroy their neighbours using US money and US lives and when that is accomplished mossad will create a false flag to justify expelling Palestinians and expanding their borders. All political analysts know this apart from those who are paid to deflect and mislead public understanding of the truth.

  • Why Won't Bernie Sanders Take "Socialist" As An Insult?: Stephen Colbert
    • The same problem exists in the UK where 80% of the ruling conservative politicians are 'friends of Israel' yet Jews represent less than 1% of the electorate. But I will be called anti semitic for even mentioning this anomaly let alone asking why Conservative politicians feel it necessary to join their club.

    • "Sanders fails to confront the American Empire and military state, and, (Chris Hedges) adds, has unforgivably “abandoned the Palestinians and given carte blanche to Israel"

      Sanders is shaking up the establishment as corbyn is doing in UK .. but .. unlike corbyn ... he won't distance himself from the fascist thugs of likud who have killed 2000 Palestinian children in the last 14 years.

  • Pope Francis Endorses Iran Deal: Another Dilemma for GOP Catholic Candidates
    • “The Holy See welcomes the IAEA’s participation in the verification and monitoring of Iran’s nuclear-related commitments"

      What a shame he didn't go on to say that he now expected Israel to follow Iran's example.

  • Netanyahu: Israel Not To Be 'Submerged' by Syrian Refugees
    • “Israel is not indifferent to the human tragedy of Syrian....."

      Which Isreal and israel firsters in US government brought about .... what a hypocrite.

      Sign the UK petition along with 100,000 others to have this warmonger arrested.

  • Can the Iran Deal be defeated by Rhetoric likening it to the Holocaust?
    • “Netanyahu’s nightmare of an Iranian nuclear attack on Israel"

      What utter rubbish .... Netanyahu has no such nightmares ... what he wants is Iran bombed and militarily crippled so that when he launches his war to expand the borders of Israel there will be no opposition.

  • Netanyahu on Iran Deal: threatens ‘survival of Israel’, ‘horrific war’
    • " ...bring more terror throughout the Middle East."

      The arrogance and hypocrisy of this fanatic and his country is staggering. We know israel has nuclear weapons obtained by theft .. deceit ... and lies ... yet western politicians are all complicit in his relentless drive towards bombing Iran for wanting the same protection. Israel and those who support Netanyahu have become detestable pariahs and there will be a backlash against them.

  • Netanyahu's Victory did us the favor of ending the Charade
    • "This is Apartheid, and Israel embraced it last week willingly and with open eyes."

      as it has done for the last 20 years or so .... anyone who believes that now israel will become isolated and US / EU politicians are all going to publicly condemn this rogue state are naive beyond belief .... money talks and Israel first billionaires most of whom support this maniac will continue to control the agenda and destroying Iran will remain on the agenda as will the final expulsion of all Palestinians from Israel.

  • Could a Netanyahu loss in Israeli Elections change Everything?
    • I was a volunteer on a kibbutz many many years ago ... how naive of me ... when the South African Jew stsying on thr kibbutz said that I shouldnt criticise apartheid if I hadn't been to South Africa I should have seen the writing on the wall ..... fortunately I now have.

  • Iran: US War Hawks go on Offensive after Nuclear Energy Talk Deadlines are Postponed
    • Israel will never be satisfied with 'a deal' of any description with Iran for the same reasons as it has never wanted a deal with Palestinians .... Israel will only be satisfied when US weaponry has reduced Iran to the chaos that now exists in Iraq and Syria so that when it launches its war of territorial expansion there are no neighbours with any military capability whatsoever and the remaining Palestinians will be ethnically cleansed to achieve the racially pure objectives which are now blatant We are watching the birth of a new empire which if not stopped will prove to be more barbaric than Hitler or Genghis Khan and indifferent to the welfare of anyone other than its own.

  • In Iran, US Choice is a Negotiated Peace Now or the Risk of War
    • "This does not make sense. An agreement is within reach." were it not for the fact that, as with Palestine, Israel does not want peace, what Israel wants is all its neighbours in chaos and their infrastructure in ruins so that at the point in time when Israel decides it has no neighbours capable of any military opposition it will launch its war to expand territory and drive out the remaining Palestinians.

  • The Shame of American Politics: GOP Presidential Hopefuls now Trek to Las Vegas seeking Adelson Blessing
    • When applying for an interview with Adelson, it is 'alleged' that potential candidates are sent a form with three questions which must be answered correctly before they are considered for an interview;

      1] Do you put Israel's interests first
      2] Do you put Israel's interests second
      3] Do you put Israel's interests third

      America land of the brave and the free!

  • Celebs to UN: Protect Palestinian Refugees in Syria (Alfonso Cuaron, Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant, Sting & 25 Others)
    • After these celebrities have finished parading across the popular media with their noble concerns about Palestinian refugees in Syria, one would hope they will then turn their attention to Palestine and the most recent UN report ;

      UN’s Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) 2012.

      “Israeli society maintains Jewish and non-Jewish sectors…[including] two systems of education…"

      "Israel reminded of “the prevention, prohibition and eradication of all policies and practices of racial segregation and apartheid” and urged to “prohibit and eradicate any such policies or practices” which violate Article 3 of the Convention (on “racial segregation and apartheid”).

      “A number of discriminatory laws on land issues… disproportionately affect non-Jewish communities.”

      “Discriminatory laws especially targeting Palestinian citizens of Israel”.

      “two groups, who live on the same territory but do not enjoy either equal use of roads and infrastructure or equal access to basic services and water resources.”

      link to

      Of course I realise that they won't get the same wall to wall publicity in the popular media due to vested interests wanting to suppress any bad news about Israel but I'm sure these kind hearted celebrities know all that and won't let themselves be cowed by those who could wreck their careers!

  • Boycott of Israeli Universities by American Studies Assn. being Tried in a Kangaroo Court
    • "In the Israeli press, the mostly hostile coverage was updated every day for weeks. In the United States, news of the ASA motion elicited not only the predictable effort to silence debate with charges of “anti-Semitism,” but also a torrent of abuse, outrage, and threats of lawsuits."

      Meanwhile in the UK NO mainstream media publication, including the (in)famous upholder of justice, the Guardian as well as the supposedly anti zionist Jewish websites reported on Gerald Kaufman's speech to the Houses of Parliament on 5th February 2014 in which he said;

      "Again and again, Israel seeks to justify the vile injustices that it imposes on the people of Gaza and the west bank on the grounds of the holocaust. Last week, we commemorated the holocaust; 1.7 million Palestinians in Gaza are being penalised with that as the justification. That is unacceptable." (search; We Must Impose Sanctions", says UK MP Sir Gerald Kaufman)

      Why is that I wonder, are all mainstream media cowed by the Jewish lobby, have they enslaved all parts of English society so that no one dare speak out. Are we living under a trojan horse totalitarian regime where dissent is stifled and opposition is vilified.

      Where are the 21st century version of UK Labour heroes will speak out against injustice and barbarity no matter what the cost.

      Instead of which we have UK Prime Minister saying "I am proud to be a friend of Israel"

      and the leader of the UK Labour Party saying "and I admire what Israel does"

      Bravo ASA, we the people who seek justice salute you.

  • Israeli PM Netanyahu faces Zionist Racism from Son dating Norwegian
    • But Israel has its own peculiar “law of return,”

      Peculiar indeed as it doesn't recognisze the law of return for the 700,00 Palestinians deliberately driven out of Palestine in 1948 to ensure a Jewish majority and which under International Law also have a right of return.

    • "Let us just say that the son of the Norwegian prime minister started dating an Israeli university student in Oslo, and Norwegian politicians said it was “painful,” and “a big problem,” and called on the PM to intervene to stop it, and warned that the PM’s grandchildren would not be Norwegian because of this racial admixture. Can you imagine?"

      The same could be said when Ovadia Yosef, former chief Rabbi of Israel said "Goyim were born to serve the people of Israel," and at his funeral Netanyahu and Peres praised him as if he were a saint.

      I think that more and more people are beginning to realise that there is as much racism coming from Jews as there is being directed at Jews.

      Meanwhile our leaders in UK state "I am proud to be a friend of Israel"

  • Despite Reform Pledges, Rouhani's Iran remains Human Rights Nightmare
    • (Jeff Haynes / Agence France Presse)
      'A former insider explains how Human Rights Watch panders to the Israel lobby' Has some interesting observations.

      "“Pushing for a moratorium on the death penalty should be one of President Rouhani’s top reform priorities,” said Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East director at Human Rights Watch. “President Rouhani should also speak out publicly against serious violations by security and intelligence forces, and act on campaign promises to ease controls on freedom of information, including heavy censorship.”

      One can substitute the US for Iran in all of that paragraph and it would still be relevant.

  • Mission Accomplished: Iraq as America's biggest Blunder (Van Buren)
    • " invading Iraq, the U.S. did more to destabilize the Middle East than we could possibly have imagined"

      "In 1996, Israeli dual citizens Douglas Feith and Richard Perle were both advisors to Israel’s Likud Party leader Benjamin Netanyahu. During that time, the duo co-authored a policy paper, entitled A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm.

      In it, they said that Saddam would have to be destroyed, and that Syria, Lebanon and Iran would all have to be overthrown or destabilized in order for Israel to be truly safe. Feith would later become the U.S. Under Secretary of Defense of Policy for the Bush administration.

      It was through Feith’s Office of Special Plans (OSP) that the Israelis channeled faulty intelligence about Saddam’s so-called “Weapons of Mass Destruction.” These lies led the U.S. Congress to enact the Iraq War Resolution of 2002, which gave George W. Bush carte blanche to wage a bloody conflict has since claimed the lives of over one million Iraqis and nearly 5,000 American troops."

      So, apart from Iran it's mission accomplished then !

  • Top Ten Surprises of the Brennan Hearing on CIA Torture and Drones
    • "torture produced key disinformation for which Washington often fell, sending it off on wild goose chases like invading Iraq."

      It was only ever a "wild goose chase" if one believed that the primary motivation for the Iraq war was WMD's. If however you believed it's primary purpose was to remove an 'enemy' of Israel and obtain control of Iraq oil, it never was or has been a "wild goose chase", more a "mission accomplished" !

  • Lawmakers Threaten Brooklyn College for Event on Boycott of Israel over Settlements (Democracy Now!)
    • "the more extreme partisans of Israel are the most strident and often are quite powerful."

      You are joking with the use of 'quite' I trust.

      The sight of Congress jumping up and down like puppets on twenty seven occasions to applaud Netanyahu shows the extent to which US politics is now dominated by this group.

      Here in the UK 80% of the current government are 'friends of Israel', in the official opposition Labour Party it is said that "if you do not support Israel your career is at an end", and all this happening with a rabid far right Israeli government that 'hides' it's nuclear weapons, ignores UN resolutions, sanctions settlers stealing or destroying Palestinian lands, 'approves' state assassinations, practises apartheid policies strongly criticised by former apartheid activists such as Tony Benn and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the list is endless.

      Those protesting about any Israeli policies are publicly labelled anti semitic, while comments from the far right religious parties of Israel go unreported in the mainstream media;

      "Another prominent Lubavitch Rabbi, Manis Friedman from America, where Lubavitch is based, is an all-round bigot. Whether it is women, children, Arabs or non-Jews they are each in their own way inferior – some more than others.

      Friedman’s views on the indigenous population of Palestine and the Arabs are best described in an article in Ha'aretz of 9th June 2009 ‘Chabad rabbi: Jews should kill Arab men, women and children during war"

  • Paranoia Strikes Deep: A Cowering America still Haunted by Bin Laden's Ghost (Engelhardt)
    • "Maybe it’s time to face the facts: this isn't your grandfather’s America"

      How right you are. America's political system is in the hands of people that Dostoevsky described as 'merciless' and they haven't changed !

  • Palestinian Legal strategy against Israel: The Real Prize is Europe
    • Let us hope that the people of Israel get the message and kick the murderous Likud into history.

  • Plot to Provoke war with Iran thwarted by Navy analyst
    • "In 1996, Israeli dual citizens Douglas Feith and Richard Perle were both advisors to Israel’s Likud Party leader Benjamin Netanyahu. During that time, the duo co-authored a policy paper, entitled A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm.

      One could easily conclude that 'they' have nearly achieved their objectives.

  • South Africa: Label West Bank Squatter Products; Israel: You Apartheid State!
    • In the sixties as an eighteen year old lad brought up as a Protestant, I was appalled at the holocaust and energised by the ideals of the the Kibbutz system. With a friend I hitch hiked to Israel and went to work for just over a year on a kibbutz near Beersheba. Eventually I began to realise that the Mizrahi Jews were more friendly than the Ashkenazi, one of whom, a South Africa, told me I had no right to pass critical comment on South Africa, then still under white rule, because I hadn't lived there. I was so stunned, and still am to this day, that I failed to find an adequate response.

      Netanyahu and Lieberman are without doubt the most dangerous politicians in the world, and the irony is that the US congress, at Netanyahu's speech some two years ago, looked like an audience from the Nuremberg rallies.

  • Anonymous Billionaires are Stealing Your Election with Attack Ads
    • America has become a bad joke. Trouble is there is no way of stopping this slide into dressed up barbarity. It's like something out of 14th century Europe when total corruption kept rulers in power. The fact this is modern day America, 'land of the free' makes it an extremely dangerous bad joke.

  • Your Election is being Bought by 47 Billionaires (and they are Buying War, Climate Change)
    • "Last time I checked every American has one vote, and this still hasn’t changed."

      Research shows that 85% of all elections in the US, and I have no doubt that it applies to UK as well, are won by the party /individual who spends the most money on canvassing / advertising / promoting etc.

      That simple fact, as well as showing that the majority of voters cannot think for themselves, also sums up that what we have laughingly called democracy is now completely dead, the ruling class know they can literally buy the vote.

      The implications of that are terrifying as it means that any protest, any desire for change will, in the majority of cases, be ineffective, and even when in the odd case that the 15% of elections are won by someone promoting change contrary to what the ruling class want, they will simply withhold or manipulate the economy to prevent any change being carried out.

  • The Arab World's Fourths of July
    • "(Comedian Bill Maher said it was because the Tahrir young revolutionaries were unrepresentative and ‘they [Egyptians] are all nut jobs,’"

      If a Christian comedian /commentator had suggested that all Israelis "are all nut jobs", the internet would be packed with Jews screamimg "anti-semitism".

  • Iran, UNSC talks have the effect of Averting War
    • "The main good thing about the talks is that as long as they continue, they make it hard for anyone to start a war."

      IMO Israel wants a war with Iran, Israel controls the US Republican party, therefore Israel will get what it wants.

      After Iran is devastated, Israel will go to war to expand it's territory, that's what Netanyahu wants, and it would appear that most Zionist billionaires are happy to go along with that all the time denying it.

      Israel is run by a bunch of fascists who care not one jot about anything other than expanding territory by illegal settlements or land conquered in war.

  • Congress Wants the Department of Defense to Propagandize Americans
    • Considering that 'most' people only read / look at mainstream media, they are already 'lost' to rational informed debate anyway. In the UK, we have three principal political parties, all with a 'globalisation / everything must be privately owned' philosophy, and the mainstream media, if they want to get advertising revenue / public awards, will churn out why that philosophy is 'a good thing'.

      Maybe this proposal is actually a false flag, so that when it is shot down, the establishment will be able to tell the voters that 'democracy' is safe in the west.

  • Top Ten Ways the US Military can Avoid Teaching Hatred of Muslims
    • "4. The less our officer corps sounds like Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik, the better."

      Most thinking people recognise that the US is no longer a Democracy but an an Oligarchy. I would have thought that the 1% do not want the officer class taught by 'experts' or University Professors, but want Anders Behring Breivik clones who will not bat an eyelid when eventually finding out that an invasion of another country, with the resulting loss of life of 100's of thousands of civilians, supposedly because it had WMD's, was actually just to secure energy supplies and to destabilise the 'enemies' of Israel.

  • Israeli Security Elite Slams Netanyahu, sidetracks War on Iran
    • "Netanyahu should be declared insane!"

      I have !, and let's not forget Lieberman who is even more dangerous. They should both be locked up and they key thrown away.

  • Israeli Spy Chief Condemns Netanyahu for Iran Hype, Messianism
    • We should be grateful that views like this from previous movers and shakers are getting into the public domain such as this site, but will they get into the popular media which the great majority take their views from, somehow I doubt it.

      One of the most disturbing elements of the Zionist right wing is that they have 'shut down' views like this, making the allegation that they own / control the majority of popular media not simply an unfounded myth, indeed, fascists like Lieberman even brag about it.

    • "....and quite sophisticated."

      How unbelievably arrogant and patronising. Iranians were sophisticated when we WASPS were running in goatskins banging people on the heads with clubs. Who would you define as sophisticated, the US, Europe, try listening to the videos from the grass roots of either and you will see we are far from sophisticated.

      Many years ago I hitch hiked through Iran and around Afghanistan /Syria / Iraq , and realised what a bunch of clods we were in comparison to 'ordinary' folk I met. Try reading the letters of Gertrude Bell or any of the explorers of the 19th / 20th century and you will find similar views.

      Somewhere I have read that 'we only get the leaders we deserve', much as I think Medev's quote is hilarious and one I will treasure for future use, the fact that Romney doesn't put a "filter between..", and he is top of the Republican list says more about the US voter than it does Romney.

  • Western Intelligence Analysts Worry that Iran Sanctions are Hurting West: IRGC
    • Much as this article makes sense in it's analysis that sanctions are possible hurting the Western economies, it's also a very good way of changing the mindset of opponents of war by suggesting that the economic recovery is stalling because of war drums and rocketing oil prices. Remember as well that high oil prices bring increased profits to the likes of the Koch brothers, who no doubt have a big interest in the war machine when Israel finally gets it's own way.

  • Obama slams GOP for casual war talk re Iran, stresses Costs
    • "a nuclear-free zone in the Middle East"

      Much as that would be desirable, it's likelihood is doubtful to say the least.

      Why not consider letting Iran go ahead and develop a nuclear bomb. Why, because in the sixties we were always told that it was only by the West and Russia both having nuclear weapons that the threat of mutual destruction would ensure the West and Russia would NOT go to war just as is predicted in the Pakistan / India situation.

    • I hadn't realised he was responsible for;

      "On his websites, including Big Government, Big Hollywood and Big Journalism, Breitbart did stretch the boundaries of the truth, and never more so than when, in 2010, he circulated misleadingly edited footage of a speech given by Department of Agriculture official Shirley Sherrod. The video, which appeared on, inaccurately portrayed her remarks as racist. She was forced to resign, but later received an apology from the Secretary of Agriculture and was offered a new position."

      His death is being lamented on pro Israeli Zionist websites,

      who, it would appear, are not too concerned about truth and morality, only whether someone is loud mouthed, rich and pro Israeli of course.

    • Having travelled many years ago around the Middle East, without knowledge of the language but with eyes wide open at the magnificence of the architecture, the gracefulness of the people, and the ordinary everyday hospitality shown in the course of daily interaction with coffee vendors, food sellers and the like, this passionate and sweeping piece of literature conveying feelings we Anglo Saxons find startling in their intensity,comes as no surprise. I would wholeheartedly agree with the sentiments, and hope that one day soon, before we all get caught up in the potential catastrophe of an aftermath to an invasion of Iran, an Israeli woman will denounce her compatriots treatment of the Palestinians in the same condemnatory tone of outrage.

  • SOTU and a Destabilized Middle East
    • "The Palestinians are still being displaced and stolen from and kept stateless and without basic human rights by their Israeli wardens. Muslim radicals repeatedly cited mistreatment of the Palestinians as among their primary motives for attacking the US,"

      This will be the primary motive until the world wakes up as to just how dangerous Netanyahu and his thugs are. Zionist influence through AIPAC in the US and 'fiends of Israel' in the UK is blatant and rampant, they are effectively manipulating foreign policy in both those countries to achieve their eventual goal of a casualty free expansion of their territory.

  • Petition against the Murder of Iranian Scientists
    • "This program, whether run by the US Government or by Israel and condoned by the US Government, is against all of our laws, traditions and principals."

      But, sadly, has been carried out by the US and it's allies for many decades.

    • "I doubt it’s falling."

      If by that you mean the US is NOT slowly losing it's No 1 superpower status, I would suggest you widen your reading !

  • Three Republican Bears and none Just Right
    • "He is the front runner because Ron Paul wants to do things like get out of South Korea and slash foreign aid, leaving long-time US allies vulnerable and defenseless"

      Hmm, does that mean that those poor unfortunate souls who have exercised a degree of sanity and intelligence and decided some time ago that they do not want to be the long term allies of the US are "vulnerable and defenceless" I think not. If nothing else, political history shows us that there is always another predator waiting in the wings !

      But, as ever, an 'informed comment' on the Republicans pantomime. The big question for me is; 'which one do the Koch's supprt,' that's where the very big bucks are and that's who will win.

      Democracy, don't ya luv it !!

  • Israeli Hardliners attack Police over Women's Segregation
  • 2011 Revolutions and the End of Republican Monarchy
    • Without wishing to be pedantic, but for the sake of clarity,

      "Assad had originally groomed his oldest son, Bassel al-Assad, to succeed, but he died in a car acident". Bashar was not the first choice.

      With apologies,

      A devoted reader !

  • Climate Change Disaster looms despite Durban Agreement
  • Washington Actions on Palestine don't Differ from Gingrich's Words
    • "...Gingrich’s positions are not meant to appeal to Jews in general, but rather to a handful of American billionaires,...."

      Exactly, and haven't I read somewhere that US elections are nearly always won by the campaign which has spent the most money.

      "It is important to note that only a minority of Jewish Americans agrees with Gingrich"

      I really hope you are right about that, and really hope they start publicly identifying themselves and speaking out, but considering the outright hostility and pressure that Goldstone came under to 'modify' his report, the vilification that Falk attracts when he equates Israel's treatment of Palestinians to the Nazis treatment of Jews, and the labelling of anti-semitism which is received by anybody who dares to speak out about the obnoxious activities of Zioniists and Israel I wont hold my breath.

      And Gingrich is evil.

  • Iran Displays Drone, Complains to UN
    • Oh come now, that really is stretching the imagination a bit far. No " red-blooded piece of smart technology" would defect to a country where it is impossible to receive fox news !

    • "....would appreciate it if more attention was paid to a balanced, accurate perspective..."

      would that be the same balanced accurate perspective that the Bush administration provided as justification for the war on Iraq ?

      Ray McGovern, a former CIA employee, says there is no evidence that Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapons programme.
      link to

      Zionists want Iran crippled economically because they are principal providers of weapons to Hezbollah and Hamas in much the same way that the US is principal provider of weapons to Israel. Zionists want to expand Israel and this requires diminishing the military capability of those who might oppose this move.

      The sooner more people realise that getting their information from the likes of fox news is not the way to achieve " a balanced, accurate perspective...", the quicker the world might be able to concentrate on curtailing the real danger in the Middle East which is the current right wing government in Israel.

  • Top Things that Should have Disqualified Cain before Now
    • "He (/ she) should have been out right there."
      applies to all the Republican candidates which surely must be the worst bunch ever for general lack of knowledge and stupidity.

      Still, I expect Cain and the others have been practising their 'standing ovation' routine for any right wing Israeli Prime Minister who addresses Congress in the future.

  • Britain Closes Tehran Embassy
    • As a Brit I read your rant with a certain "well he / she does have a point, until I came to;

      "Then you persuade the U.S. (with false intelligence) to invade Iraq."

      Come now old chap, that is a piece of absolute fantasy. Yes the Brits are guilty of double dealing, hypocrisy, pontificating in public and screwing everyone in private, but they all are, and if you think your own country, wherever that is, are not, then I suggest you read Wikileaks where I have no doubt that examples can be found.

      The war against Iraq was engineered by Zionists within the US administration and those same forces are working again to strike against Iran.

  • Did the Muslim Brotherhood Threaten to Kill "All Jews"?
    • I realise that I will be labelled 'conspiracist' but let us not delude ourselves that Lieberman / Mossad will not be covertly working to derail and besmirch the Arab Spring. When as a state they engage in assassination, it's not beyond the realms of reason to suggest that they will employ a few thugs to assault female reporters atTahrir Square and chant inflammatory slogans at Brotherhood rallies. Even if I'm wrong, are these slogans more provocative than settlers daubing insults on local mosques and ripping up Palestinian olive trees when Netanyahu makes a gesture of trying to reign them in, personally I think not. Moderate Jews know that it's Zionism and it's plans for expansion of Israel that is the greatest threat to ME stability.

      "In 1937, during earlier partition proposals, David Ben Gurion, who was to become Israel’s first prime minister, wrote to his son,

      “A partial Jewish state is not the end, but only the beginning. The establishment of such a Jewish State will serve as a means in our historical efforts to redeem the country in its entirety….We shall organize a modern defense force…and then I am certain that we will not be prevented from settling in other parts of the country, either by mutual agreement with our Arab neighbors or by some other means….We will expel the Arabs and take their places…with the force at our disposal.”
      Quoted in Jerome Slater, “What Went Wrong? The Collapse of the Israeli-Palestinian Peace Process,” Political Science Quarterly, vol. 116, no. 2, 2001, pp. 173-74."

  • Anti-Liberal Netanyahu Slams Arab Spring as Anti-Liberal
    • The anti Iranian hypocrisy emanating from the US and Israel is yet another example of the Zionist determination to eradicate anybody who stands in the way of the expansion of Israel.

  • The Little Iran Nuclear Report that Couldn't
    • For the current regime running Israel along with their settler equivalent to brown shirts, truth is just another item to be manipulated in the daily propaganda. As Sarkozy said, "I can't stand Netanyahu, he is such a liar" For once I can agree with the President.
