Ismail Haniyeh: My message to the West – Israel must stop the slaughter

I write this article to Western readers across the social and political spectrum as the Israeli war machine continues to massacre my people in Gaza. To date, almost 1,000 have been killed, nearly half of whom are women and children. Last week’s bombing of the UNRWA (UN Relief Works Agency) school in the Jabalya refugee camp was one of the most despicable crimes imaginable, as hundreds of civilians had abandoned

The USA has lost yet another war – has anybody noticed?

One of the most inept war launched during the so-called GWOT (Global War on Terror) was the CIA-run war on the Islamic Courts in Somalia. Using a combination of Ethiopian troops, CIA goons and Special Ops, the USA invaded Somalia and took control of Mogadishu. Well, its over. The Ethiopians have left and the Islamic Resistance is back on control. Yet another useless war initiated by the USA ends up

Gilad Atzmon – Israel Has Managed to Lose Again

by Gilad Atzmon for Palestine Think Tank Haaretz reported today that IDF Senior officials “believe that Israel should strive to reach an immediate cease-fire with Hamas, and not expand its offensive against the Palestinian Islamist group in Gaza.” This shouldn’t take us by great surprise. Though Israel has proved beyond doubt that it is rather capable of conducting large-scale genocide, it also proved that its military forces do not have

‘Full Red Alert’: Hezbollah Ponders Gaza Role

By Franklin Lamb for Palestine Chronicle “The Resistance is one project and the resistance movement is one movement and has one course, one destiny, one goal, despite its different parties, factions, believes, sects and intellectual and political trends…Resistance movements in this region, especially in Lebanon and Palestine, complement one another and (Hezbollah and Hamas) are contiguous groups.” — Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah, 7/18/08 “In Lebanon, we, the Islamic Resistance,

A rather ridiculous article in Ha’aretz

Since the beginning of the Israeli assault on Gaza, Ha’aretz has done a fairly decent job covering the war; its analytical pieces are, in particular, often interesting and well written. But today, spurred no doubt by a need to publish some feel-good fluff for its readers, Ha’aretz published a truly ridiculous piece called In pictures: Tens of thousands attend pro-Israel rallies in Europe, NY. This short piece is accompanied by

More on “the only democracy in the Middle East”

by ‘Lenin’ for Lenin’s Tomb The news is that Israel has banned Arab parties from standing in the upcoming elections: Parliament spokesman Giora Pordes said the election committee voted overwhelmingly in favor of the motion, accusing the country’s Arab parties of incitement, supporting terrorist groups and refusing to recognize Israel’s right to exist. This can’t be a complete surprise since a) there are many Israeli politicians who would like the

Perhaps the Zionists, because of the difference between the resistance

Will Hizballah intervene in the Gaza conflict?

by Amal Saad-Ghorayeb for The Electronic Intifada While Israel fervently attempts to terrorize the Palestinians into submission in Gaza, many observers have started to wonder why Hizballah has refrained from stepping in militarily to assist its brothers-in-arms, Hamas. Such musings fail to take account of the constraints on Hizballah’s room for action, as well as the circumstances under which Hizballah would ignore such constraints. The question that should be posed

Qassam Brigades: We’ve Killed 12 Israeli Soldiers Friday

Al-Manar reports: On the 15th day of Israel’s onslaught on the Gaza Strip, the Zionist entity killed more than 806 Palestinians and injured more than 3150 others, yet the goal to break the will of the people and the resistance has been futile. The Israel occupation army has been stunned by the Palestinian resistance’s fighting techniques, capabilities and determination. On Saturday morning, the Quds Brigades, the military wing of the

How Many Divisions?

by Uri Avnery NEARLY SEVENTY YEARS ago, in the course of World War II, a heinous crime was committed in the city of Leningrad. For more than a thousand days, a gang of extremists called “the Red Army” held the millions of the town’s inhabitants hostage and provoked retaliation from the German Wehrmacht from inside the population centers. The Germans had no alternative but to bomb and shell the population

Hasbara spam alert

by Richard Silverstein for the Guardian The hasbara brigade strikes again! You always hear about Israeli attempts at media manipulation. Everyone knows it’s going on but usually the process happens through cyber insurgents like those involved with Giyus (and its media monitoring software, Megaphone). Now, we know that the Israeli foreign ministry itself is orchestrating propaganda efforts designed to flood news websites with pro-Israel arguments and information. A reader of
