Israeli Settlers Bind Palestinian Teacher to Pole and Club Him

06-07-2008 00:53

Israel's own Extremists are desperate to provoke another round of attacks on the Palestinians. Their seething rage over the past few weeks alone has allowed the world to glimpse the barbarity and racism which is so prevalent in Zionist Extremism, which sadly holds power in the Knesset today.

Any bets this won't make the nightly news?

Iran attack 'imminent' US congressman declares. More 'terror' to follow?

05-07-2008 22:30

Congressman Ron Paul has warned millions of radio listeners that the US is heading into a deadly confrontation with Iran, revealing his disbelief at members of Congress who have openly voiced support for a pre-emptive nuclear strike on the country. Does this indicate that we can expect more 'terror' attacks both here and in the US?

Ha'Aretz: Sanity Now

05-07-2008 21:35

I love Ha'Aretz, for it always reminds me that most Israelis are victims of their Government and Extremists (currently one and the same), and that most of them oppose the perpetuation of Zionism's expansionist war and cultish drive for 'Greater Israel', and just want to live in peace and coexistence with their Arab brethren.

Starbucks gets a picket from london syndicalists

05-07-2008 21:22

Today London Solidarity Federation joined with London IWW to picket starbucks in support of their sacked members in Spain and America. Organising a union, like these CNT and IWW comrades did, imroves your pay and conditions - and that is the last things Starbucks want to see. Poor pay and apalling contracts goes hand in hand with a policy of aggressive expansion, so more and more people will be forced to work these McJobs.

BBC Claims WTC7 Collapse 'Solved'

05-07-2008 19:23

Note that the BBC has recently claimed that it "lost" the tapes in which they were caught reporting on the collapse of Tower 7 BEFORE it actually fell.

Sorry, but you simply don't lose tapes of major events, and they are always backed up in the event of damage or loss.

(Note to the BBC: It's already been solved. It was brought down in a controlled demolition, and the evidence proves this. The only questions remaining now are, was it the CIA or the Mossad, and why was an investigation blocked by the Fascists who used this 'useful crisis' to start multiple, illegal wars ... ?)

Badgers saved in England, but not in Wales

05-07-2008 19:17

Going against solid scientific advice the Welsh Assembly have voted to allow badger culling to go ahead in Wales, despite the leaked announced from DEFRA that badgers in England will be spared. This will be a wildlife massacre of an almost unprecedented scale - and for nothing. The largest report into bovine TB found that badger culling would actually make the situation worse by displacing surviving badgers.

Syria Calls on UN to Stop Israeli Aggression Against Its Citizens in Golan

05-07-2008 18:28

As Israel receives glowing praise in the international press for talking indirectly with Syria, it's proceeding into Syrian territory in much the same way it does Palestinian land. Are these talks simply an extension of the facade which passes for a 'peace process' with the Palestinians, which is solely designed as a stalling tactic?
