Correct reading, it used to work wonders

 

Important!

Kamal Salibi was my Facebook friend for just a few months. Before he died in 2011, he told me that the greatest pleasure he got from his theories was seeing how crazy it made the Israelis. Making hasbara trolls crazy seems to be the best litmus test of how close you’re getting to the real truth about Israel…

Apoplexy of fear and hatred


Brigitte Gabriel is a vicious and probably deranged Islamophobe

By Hussein Ibish, October 1, 2009

 

A lot of readers seemed to benefit from and enjoy my evaluation of Irshad Manji from yesterday’s Ibishblog posting, and I have been asked to give my views on another charmer, called Brigitte Gabriel. I argued that Manji is not an Islamophobe as has sometimes been alleged, but that she is an anti-Arab racist and an ignoramus to boot. About Gabriel, there can … [more]

Overhaul of governments and institutions

How ISIS Should Shape Our View of the Church and Its Mission Globally

By Martin Accad, December 4, 2014

 

I’ve been blogging and speaking much about ISIS in recent months. Last July, as we were beginning to get to grips with the savagery of the group, I tried to call us all, as people who claim to love God, to face and fight our own demons instead of claiming they have nothing to do with us. By the … [more]

How about a War on War?

War Is People Too

By Jeffrey Hutchins, 2014

 

It’s very interesting that Corporations are now legally invested with nearly all the same rights and protections as individual people. We have made Corporations the second androids: beings made out of non-living parts.

The first android, of course, was Religion. Every person’s vision of God or No God is so sacrosanct in America that we allow no laws that deal with the establishment of any particular religion or the free exercise … [more]

Swallowing their own lies

Israel-Gaza conflict: What has Israel achieved in 26 bloody days?

By Patrick Cockburn, Sunday 3 August 2014

 

As Gaza is devastated by a new paroxysm of violence, what has Israel achieved by its 26-day bombardment and ground intervention? The outcome so far is similar to that of past Israeli wars in Lebanon and Gaza: massive firepower is used to inflict heavy losses on the other side, the great majority of the casualties being civilians. But, as the war goes … [more]

We don’t care so much about the Palestinians, do we?

Eight hundred dead Palestinians. But Israel has impunity

By Robert Fisk, Friday 25 July 2014

 

Impunity is the word that comes to mind. Eight hundred dead Palestinians. Eight hundred. That’s infinitely more than twice the total dead of flight MH17 over Ukraine. And if you refer only to the “innocent” dead – ie no Hamas fighters, young sympathisers or corrupt Hamas officials, with whom the Israelis will, in due course, have to talk – then the women and children … [more]

Israeli teenagers’ funeral: It is obscene when either side kills children – not only Palestinians

By Robert Fisk, Tuesday 1 July 2014

 

Three Israeli teenagers killed by Palestinians. Vicious, cruel, unforgivable. True. At least 37 Lebanese children killed by Israel. Regrettable, unfortunate, but the ultimate fault of “terrorists”. Untrue. The slaughter of the children at Qana in Lebanon in 1996 – among 109 civilians killed by Israeli shellfire as they sheltered in a UN camp – was a war … [more]
