If Trump cares so much about Syrian babies, why is he not condemning the rebels who slaughtered children?
By Robert Fisk, Monday 17 April 2017 12:15 BST
It was the Mother of all Hypocrisy. Some dead Syrian babies matter, I guess. Other dead Syrian babies don’t matter. One mass murder in Syria two weeks ago killed children and babies and stirred our leaders to righteous indignation. But the slaughter in Syria this weekend killed even more children and … [more]

Deir Yassin Today
Although virtually all six million Palestinians in the world know of Deir Yassin, few have ever been there. The site is not identified on post-1948 maps of Israel. But it is not difficult to find.
The central part of Deir Yassin is a cluster of buildings now used as a mental hospital. To the east lies the industrial area of Givat Shaul; to the north lies Har Hamenuchot (the Jewish cemetery), to the west, … [more]

The cult of atheist Zionism posing as Judaism
By Rich Siegel, January 1, 2012
This essay was first published in Beyond Tribal Loyalties: Personal Stories of Jewish Peace Activists, edited by Avigail Abarbanel (Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2012), used with permission.
I consider myself a cult survivor. I was raised in the cult of Atheist-Zionism-Posing-as-Judaism. I stated this to a few select friends several years ago, and they thought it was funny. The statement brought with it a … [more]

Martin McGuinness dies: The ‘super-terrorist who became a super-statesman – like so many others
By Robert Fisk, Tuesday 21 March 2017 07:45 GMT
Martin McGuinness followed along the familiar trail of so many enemies of Britain’s weary colonial history. A “super-terrorist” becomes a super-statesman. Jomo Kenyatta comes to mind. And Archbishop Makarios. And of course, Menachem Begin. With blood on their hands, they pass through that mist of nobility bestowed by colonial power and former rulers – and re-emerge … [more]

The evangelical bloc
Even though Donald Trump won the presidential election legitimately, the extreme liberal side still cannot understand how he really won, nor can they stop their ugly and harmful opposition. Even though they are loud and very organized, they are only hurting themselves, not helping our nation and certainly don’t represent the majority of Americans who still hold to conservative family values.
These extreme liberals have tried to say that Trump won because … [more]

How Trump Finally Made This Israeli Arab Feel at Home in America
By Sayed Kashua, Feb 04, 2017 4:23 PM
At long last, after two-and-a-half years, I’m finally starting to feel at home here. Of course, it’s not the real deal yet, far from it, but it’s definitely a good start, and gradually, with God’s help, amateur racism will morph into professional racism and our acclimatization process here will be complete.
I was really afraid of losing the … [more]

‘Scary’ final days
I am convinced that Barack Hussein Obama’s goal was to change America from Christian to (I won’t say what).
I heard years ago that “things” come into a country slowly, much of it in schools, to take over.
What is going on in his last days is “scary.”
I don’t know the history of our past presidents, we have never had one, that I know of, who would even think of doing … [more]
