Talking About Israel

The relationship with Israel is poison for the United States   A recent article by Andrew Sullivan in the New York magazine considers how one might discuss the issue of Israel and its powerful domestic lobby without being accused of anti-Semitism.

Attacking Iran

Getting Rid of Omar: Neoconservatives Dig Deep to Remove a Critic of Israel

  It has been observed that the neoconservatives are a lot like the legendary bird the Phoenix, which burns to death and then, miraculously, rises from the ashes in new plumage.

Israel’s Story

Lies from top to bottom   A study by a Toronto-based consulting and research company has revealed thatover the past fifty years mainstream reporting about Israel has been distorted to portray the Jewish state in positive terms while ignoring the plight of the Palestinians under Israeli occupation.

A Tale of Two Walls
