  • Obama and the End of Al-Qaeda
    • It would have been much more desirable to arrest Bin Laden and put him on trial.
      This is the rule of law. Without laws we are no better than the Bin Laden's and terrorists.

  • Mubarak Defies a Humiliated America, Emulating Netanyahu
    • Prof. Cole, the post is full of clarity, angry and upset. I am also angry and upset by our governments who issue words of condemnation but who refuse to act. When citizens become powerless, they react.

  • The Closing of the Zionist Mind
    • In all such discourse, religion trumps scientific evidence as none is required by the former. That Carol Glick is hysterical and rambling is hopefully a sign that the continued illegal colonialism, occupation and imprisonment of Palestinians is no longer a taboo subject of discussion in the US.
      Europeans have long discussed this issue but their politicians seem transfixed and beholden to US foreign policy.
      The Gaza flotillas and various BDS movements are having an impact.

  • McChrystal Drama is Sideshow;
    Can Obama define a realistic Goal?
    • because they invoked article 5 of the NATO treaty, “an attack on one is an attack on all,” after September 11

      That explains why Turkey re-registered the Mavi Marmama in the Comoros.

      I hate it when Al-Qaeda and the Taliban are conflated.

  • Mercy Flotilla for Gaza About to Set Off
    Israelis Threaten to Block it with War Ships
    • Prof. Cole,

      Israel needs an impoverished, undereducated and malnourished population in Gaza so that Hamas survives. Israel requires perpetual war in order to continue its illegal colonial expansion in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. The West has grown weary of the victimhood practised by Israelis and are seeing the effects of the assault on Gaza, the apartheid roads. The BDS campaigns are gaining traction and young Jewish people in Europe and the US don't really have much in common with the Israelis.

      The leaking of the South African papers outlining Israel's willingness to supply the then apartheid regime with nuclear weapons wasn't an accident either.
      The pressure is mounting on Netanyahu. The only question remaining is when he'll give way.
