One wonders how the racism that is so much a part of U.S. and Israeli society towards the Palestinians can have such strength. Racism against African-Americans in both…

Pro-Israeli Security Council Gaza Resolution

Pro-Israeli Security Council Gaza Resolution

Long denied justice is nowhere in sight. The US/German/British/ French resolution assures keeping things this way.

SC

by Stephen Lendman

On August 21, Washington joined Germany, Britain and France. They presented a largely one-sided Security Council resolution to end over six weeks of conflict.

It’s pro-Israeli. It’s pro-Western. It’s anti-Palestinian. It’s more Gazan Versailles than legitimate…

Western Leaders Support Israeli Genocide

Western Leaders Support Israeli Genocide

west-leaders

By Stephen Lendman

Longstanding US-led Western support lets Israel get away with genocidal mass murder and destruction. More on this below.

Israel’s Operation Protective Edge is the latest example of well planned, premeditated Israeli aggression on Palestine.

It has nothing to do with Hamas rocket attacks, self-defense or security.

It has everything to do with maintaining occupation harshness,…

Israel’s Genocidal War Continues; BDS Continues

Israel’s Genocidal War Continues; BDS Continues

We’re all Palestinians. They deserve universal support to stop Israel from annihilating them altogether.

cleaver-(R)dees

by Stephen Lendman

On Tuesday, peace talks collapsed. Israel sabotaged them. It refused to negotiate in good faith. It’s longstanding Israeli practice.

Straightaway fighting resumed. Hamas rockets are pinpricks compared to merciless Israeli air, ground and sea attacks.

Questions to Ask Your Pro-Israeli Friends

Questions to Ask Your Pro-Israeli Friends

Ask your pro-Israel friend questions requiring thought instead of quoting “facts” might result in a more productive dialog.

By Paul Kinzelman

Lately it seems that the Gaza Conflict is on everybody’s mind, quite understandably, but there is precious little productive dialog between the two sides.

I often engage in conversation with people who hold different views from mine. I think that’s what…

ATTENTION: Free Palestine billboard removed from Melbourne

Free Palestine billboard removed
Editor’s note:  It seems that even the images and words of two of the world’s greatest statesmen in support of a free Palestine couldn’t stop our banner from being removed.  Barely up for 48 hours, Australians for Palestine was told that due to “unprecedented complaints” the decision was taken to remove the banner pending an Advertising Standards Board review. We have just now received an email…
