‘Academic Boycott’ Is an Oxymoron – Monica Osborne/The Chronicle of Higher Education

February 20, 2016 6:41 pm
"The israel-Palestine situation has a long and deep history that is fraught with complexity" excuse me while I puke. What's so complex about it? The Zionist invaders turned up and ethnically cleansed the native Palestinian population and stole their land on top of a whole number of other major crimes. Nothing fucking complicated at all.    

The media are misleading the public on Syria – Stephen Kinzer/The Boston Globe

February 19, 2016 5:19 pm
Pretty good article. Need more like this. I read Stephen Kinzer's 2003 book "All The Shah's Men" about the 1953 Iranian coup which is fairly decent account of that disgraceful event to which the roots of fundamentalist Islamic terror originated We need more journalists like this willing to stand up and tell the truth. Though I have no idea how big or widespread the Boston Globe is  
February 19, 2016 9:23 pm
After a quick check online, it appears that the Boston Globe has a daily circulation of around 240,000 which is nearly 6 times lower than the New York Times which has a daily circulation of 1.4m. But even 240k is a decent number.  (by the way the full title of the Kinzer book is "All the Shahs men: an American coup and the roots of middle east terror)

On the same theme, here is the latest from Paul Craig Roberts: [Excerpt] "This morning I was stuck in front of a Fox “News” broadcast for a short period and then with a NPR news program. It was enough to convince me that Nazi propaganda during Hitler’s Third Reich was very mild compared to the constant stream of dangerous lies that are pumped out constantly by the American media. The New York Times, Washington Post, and a couple of think-tank types were represented on NPR. They delivered the most crude propaganda imaginable and questioned no US government statement. Did you know that all the trouble in Syria is due to the Russians and Assad? The US has no blame whatsoever. The US is trying to fight ISIS (which the US created, aids and abets), but the evil Russians and Assad are fighting the innocent “democratic rebels” who are trying to bring democracy to Syria as a replacement for a “brutal dictator” (elected by a large majority vote). The Russians are also bombing schools and hospitals, “collateral damage” when the US does it but war crimes when the Russians are accused of doing it. The accusers had no evidence for their accusations against Russia beyond the unverified claims of the US government." http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2016/02/19/presstitutes-at-work-paul-craig-roberts/

Thanks Chasmark What Peter Bergen said is more than mind boggling. Unfortunately this is the narrative that is plaguing the msm and unfortunately most people believe it. Frustrating beyond belief Regarding the origins of Islamic terror I should have said ".. Which he says is...". That's actually not my own opinion and I should have made that clear. I think the title of the book had something about origins of middle east terror in it I completely agree with absolutely everything you said. My knowledge of that period of history is very limited. What you have stated makes total sense. Iran has been put through hell. Even before the coup the British and others were exploiting that country for its oil resources. Then when Mossadegh wanted to nationalise the oil industry he was taken out and the shah was reinstated. His atrocious rule led to the revolution and immediately after that we in the West spurred Iraq to start a devastating war with Iran that has lasted years and killed hundreds of thousands and devastated their economies. . They have been vilified and blamed endlessly for every evil on earth, which has been propagated by the Zionist scum who want them overthrown for their own evil reasons. I believe that Iran is desperate to achieve stability and peace in Syria, for the sake of the Syrian people and for their own future stability and prosperity. The propaganda campaign that they (and the Russians) have ulterior motives is however very powerful. The power of the media appears to be the most powerful weapon in the world today. Those who control those media platforms tend to be able to do and say what they like. I hope more journalists come out. Thanks again for your really informative comment                  

Ten rules for crushing BDS – Jack Engelhard/Arutz Sheva

February 19, 2016 2:52 pm
Dear Mr Engelhard. Thank you for this glimpse into your sick, immoral, perverted, tribalist, hateful zionist mind. You are very seriously unhinged and shouldn't be allowed out the street let alone be allowed to spew your anti goyimism all over the place. Oh and by the way your first two paragraphs quite perfectly describe rotten zionists just like you.

The Obama administration enables anti-Semitism at the United Nations – Jennifer Rubin/The Washington Post

February 17, 2016 10:54 pm
Welcome back American. Everyone was wondering where you were. Who can blame you for ducking out of this for a while. It really does become too much to handle sometimes I couldn't agree more with your comment. I'm afraid it's almost exactly the same in the UK. I've said before that if I suddenly became a billionaire the first thing I'd do is start a free newspaper which I would hand out far and wide with the Real News. They're winning, big time, because they control the main stream media and very few people will ever wake up while they have that control  
February 17, 2016 6:02 pm
I'll try and describe how I feel after reading that. Okay here goes. Well, I'm definitely very angry. I also have a sense of utter disbelief that someone could even have the chutzpah to write this Bollocks. But I think the biggest overriding feeling is one of total frustration. I'm frustrated that people like this horrid, tribalist, neocon psycho has a massive worldwide mainstream media platform to spew her lies and propaganda over a huge chunk of the misinformed, ignorant and indifferent population. This is why they are ahead of the game, why they keep winning. That is what is so fucking frustrating  

Activists Project Palestinian Hunger Striker’s Name on BBC Building

February 16, 2016 2:11 pm
This, as usual fell on the deaf, merciless and cruel ears of the illegal occupiers. As of yesterday he was on the verge of death and his petition to be moved to Ramallah was denied. Bastards

Britain wants to ban boycotts on Israeli goods – Ishaan Tharoor/The Washington Post

February 16, 2016 1:45 pm
what else to expect from the disgraceful zionist-whore UK pathetic government.  But sometimes I am literally just amazed at how much power these devils actually have. It's actually quite staggering. How did they achieve this?  However I think it could backfire and work against the bastards. Thanks to the Washington Post for this story who will be delighted and honoured to know that their Jerusalem chief and a colleague from a human rights organisation was arrested and taken into custody for "incitement".  Of course as soon as they realised who they arrested they soon let him and his colleague go.  "By The Associated Press, Nir Hasson and Haaretz Published 14:57 16.02.16 Israeli police forces briefly detained Washington Post Jerusalem Bureau Chief William Booth and an employee of a human rights organization near Jerusalem's Damascus Gate on Tuesday in response to a witness who said a group planned to stage a confrontation by Arab youth directed at the police. According to another reporter at the scene, the two were detained for an hour on grounds of incitement and taken to a police station for questioning. The two have since been released. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld says the journalists were questioned in connection to an unspecified "incident" and quickly released after it was clear they were not involved. Jerusalem Police issued a statement saying: "A passerby had complained that he was witness to the intention on the part of a number of people to stage a provocative situation and a disturbance of the peace by young Arabs directed at police on security duty on the ground." The incident was apparently to be staged for "propaganda purposes," the police added. "In light of the complaint, the police detained a number of suspects to clarify the facts – in a sensitive and discreet manner at the adjacent police facility. When the circumstances of the incident became clear, and no suspicion of criminal activity was found, the detainees were immediately released by the investigating officer without proceedings of any kind in the matter." http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.703705 At least Mr Booth got a small taste of Zionist/fascist hospitality.     

Clinton to Donor: In Next War, I’ll Let Israel Kill 200,000, Not 2000 – Boaz Bulbulovitz/MidEastBeast Satire

February 16, 2016 1:54 pm
Thank you Tree! But I fully agree with you Bintbiba.  She's already been responsible for way more than 200,000 innocent deaths and gawd knows how many more she will murder if she becomes POTUS.  This psycho witch must be stopped. I find her so repulsive I can't put it into words (well I can think of some but better not write them here)
February 16, 2016 5:41 am
I know she is a psychopathic zionist whore who will literally do anything at all to satisfy her power lust so I shouldn't be surprised at this but it really has made me feel extremely sick and incredibly angry

Israeli police officer knocks disabled Palestinian man out of his wheelchair

February 15, 2016 10:00 pm
At least this time it made the mainstream news, albeit not a main headline. I originally read it in the Telegraph via Google/middleeast The man in the wheelchair acted like a proper human. Unfortunately he was up against psychopathic zio-sadist killers

A Nazi SS officer knocks a defenceless disabled Jew out of his wheelchair. The Nazis had just shot a young girl, a Jewish teenager and the disabled man and others were trying to reach the young girl to attempt to give first aid. But the Nazis wouldn't allow them to assist her and instead became extremely violent You can change the names, dates and uniforms but it's exactly the same       

Netanyahu, King Salman and the Devil’s Valentine

February 14, 2016 9:49 pm
We can laugh, and I can assure you I did, very much. But there is so much truth and reality in this brilliant little sketch. The dark side comes through loud and clear. I love the graphic too. All the graphics on the site are top class, so well chosen Thank you for the Valentines evening chuckle Taxi we are facing a very dangerous situation right now with the nutty Turks and Saudis threatening a ground invasion. If either go in we move into mega serious territory
