The Politics of Non-Proliferation

06-03-2008 21:07

If there was a time when Iranian analysts and decision makers would question the benefits of continuing to cooperate with the International Atomic Energy Agency, it would be now. The IAEA has allowed systematic US intervention in Iran's nuclear file paving the way to a third round of sanctions. But while US pressure on Iran with the knowledge that no evidence of a covert weapons programme exists, is perhaps in the hope that it will finally force Iran to leave the NPT in protest, Iran seems to be one step ahead and does exactly the opposite.

The Gaza Bombshell - Crisis Made in USA

04-03-2008 01:33

Without exception, the media ignored this story. Please forward this to media outlets, so that this story gets some airtime.

This entire crisis, including Israel's assault on Gaza, is due to a rejection by Zionism of peace achieved through any process it cannot control, as this will involve an end to their expasionist war, and handing back a portion of what they have stolen.

Gaza: Punishing the People

04-03-2008 01:08

It is really simple folks; 60 years ago "Israel" - represented at the time by European Zionism - started taking land away from the Palestinian people by force.

They are still taking it away today.

The core problem is that Israel demands the world recognize the "Jewish state", but refuses to recognize a Palestinian state. If Israel would simply to give Palestine exactly the same thing it demands for itself, there would be peace.

Israel insists it has a right to do what it does in Palestine because of the suffering of Jewish people in Germany in the middle of the last century. But what did Palestine have to do with any of that? Why should they pay the price for other peoples' crimes? (And remember, the Zionists who created Israel out of thin air, upon the suffering the Palestinians, collaborated with the Nazis, saying, "Any Jew who does not want to emmigrate to Palestine deserves to be on the trains").

Israel screams about Qassam rockets, but if a new nation was declared in the middle of the North American continent without your permission, a nation that refused to actual declare its borders, a nation that continued to take more and more land from you until you and your family were barely clinging to survival as the lights went dark and the sewage piled up, would you not fight back?

A foreign power occupies their land, and they want it back.
