"Israel and the Clash of Civilisations" - A Review of Jonathan Cook's book

04-02-2008 23:35

Israel and the Clash of Civilisations: Iraq, Iran and the Plan to Remake the ME
Following is a review of Jonathan Cook's book "Israel and the Clash of Civilisations" written by Stephen Lendman. The book was published by Pluto Press in Britain in January 2008. John Pilger has said that it is: “One of the most cogent understandings of the modern Middle East I have read. It is superb, because the author himself is a unique witness who blows away the media debris and presents both a j’accuse of those who would destroy the lives of whole societies in their pursuit of power and myth, and a warning to the rest of us to speak up and act.”

Humanitarian imperialism of The Independent

02-02-2008 12:48

The Independent, 31 January 2008
"The idea that any individual in any country should face execution for downloading information from the internet is as abhorrent as it is incomprehensible. That this should be happening in a nation whose government benefits from the military and financial support of Western countries, Britain included, should give us great pause for thought. Pervez Kabaksh, 23, is a student at an Afghan university and a journalist. He was arrested last year after downloading material about the role of women in Islamic societies. We can well imagine that the material was not flattering to, or particularly consonant with, some of the precepts of Islam."

NATO and Israel: Instruments of America's Wars in the Middle East

30-01-2008 20:53

Israel through its officials and government leaders is being used to maintain tension in the Middle East. Israel is an instrument which justifies Anglo-American and Franco-German intervention. Why else would the U.S. get angry with Israel because Tel Aviv did not endanger its own interests by attacking Syria during the 2006 Israeli against Lebanon and facing the wrath of an expanded regional war with Iran and Syria?

The biggest threat to international security and peace: the "Gang of Four"

29-01-2008 23:25

Two countries of the Gang of Four, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, are undergoing an internal political crisis triggered by the deep disconnect there is between the ruling elites (prostitutes of the Empire) and not only their public opinion but even a good chunk of the elites themselves. This is not unlike what is now also taking place in Egypt. Israel and Turkey are thus the most formidable ones among the others and they are the leaders of the gang; if there is a true 'axis of evil' is certainly the one linking Jerusalem to Ankara.
