The math is pretty basic: Jerusalem Post = disinformation.
If you read from multiple sources to triangulate a semblance of reality, you can safely eschew the Jerusalem Post, Faux News, Rush Limbaugh, Krauthammer, every other neocon-Jewish (there, I said it) cheerleader for Israel, and increasingly, most of the rest of the American press.
For example, today’s lead Washington Post editorial is by John McCain and is all about how wunnerful post-surge Iraq is. Why, he was even able to drive … [more]

…and whaddaya get? Another day older and deeper in debt… Bush and Blair have got to be the most inept diplomats in the world:
The whole thing is rather silly — the general area where the incident occurred has been disputed for a long time and isn’t exactly well-delineated… In better times, both sides would have swapped cigarettes and posed for pictures and the whole thing would have blown over in a day or two.
But, never underestimate the … [more]

We’re about to finish out our 5th March in Iraq and according to http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/ops/iraq_casualties.htm, this is the deadliest one yet for our boys and girls in the military. Thank goodness our wise commander-in-chief has outsourced the “ugliest” operations to Blackwater mercenaries (http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Blackwater_USA)…
It hardly matters really, since they aren’t good Christian Americans (isn’t that a triple tautology?), but who knows how many Iraqis have been snuffed out by this foolishness; who knows what horrors are waiting for … [more]

You’re taking the Washington Times to task for helping smear Valerie Plame? That’s like chastising the New York Post for helping Israel attack Jimmy Carter, or Faux News for helping keep George Bush’s insanity hidden from his shrinking pool of doting admirers. In the interest of triangulating the truth from multiple “news” sources, you have to occasionally sip the poison cool-aid that these propagandists dispense, but their “signal” is at best vague and distorted by static. Honing in on the … [more]

I can imagine that in Mr. Greenberg’s mind, any modern comparison to the Holocaust is tantamount to its diminution/dilution and therefore an insult to the Jews’ well-documented suffering. Also well-documented is the rage provoked by exposing the hypocrisy of Jewish nationalists. Just ask Jesus…
If Greenberg didn’t like your comments, I’m sure he’s thrilled with fellow Jew Norman Finkelstein, who equates the Holocaust with an “industry” designed to rake in billions of dollars in perpetuity. Arabs are supposed to get … [more]

Four years ago this week, I forwarded this now-prescient speech by Ray Close:
It’s a long read, but remarkable in how accurately he anticipated the problems that would arise from this administration’s folly. Well worth reading a second time (or a first, if you’re relatively new to this list).
I called Mr. Close this morning, after re-reading his speech. I was curious about a section in it where he more or less restates the administration’s spin on Iraq’s … [more]

The concluding paragraph of Fisk’s end-of-year summary:
If Lebanon survives into next year, it will be the only “democracy” in the Arab world to have done so. Afghanistan is crumbling, Iraq is already a mass grave. The Palestinians face their own inter-factional catastrophe. But desperate for the help of Syria and Iran to ease his trapped legions from Iraq, Bush is now urged to deal with Israel’s Arab opponents. By year’s end, the UN’s tribunal investigator was no longer blaming … [more]
