This post is about 2 children, each violently attacked recently and each victims of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict.
Ahava, the cosmetics label, uses mud mined by an illegal Israeli settlement in the occupied Palestinian territory. Why is Nordstrom selling Ahava products? A new video takes the retail giant on over its own lame responses regarding its social responsibility policies.

Daniel Levy’s current article at Foreign Policy, Maximum Bibi, breaks down Netanyahu’s urgent dilemma given the “diplomatic opening” created by the election of Rouhani as Iran’s president.
Danielle Pletka of American Enterprise Institute said biggest danger of Iran getting nukes is Iran being a normal country
The New York Times says that “stone throwing clashes” have resulted when “mainstream Jews” visit the Temple Mount. But phalanxes of soldiers firing percussion grenades have cleared the Muslim holy site for religious zealots.
As reports swirl that Obama will meet his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani, at the U.N. next week, and Rouhani takes to twitter to get out his message, Israeli leaders are panicking. They fear that the country is being outmaneuvered on a fast-moving diplomatic landscape.
John Kerry landed in Israel yesterday after meeting with with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Geneva to iron out a deal over Syria’s chemical weapons disposal. Although the trip to Israel was hyped in some quarters as “a personal mission to try to achieve a long-elusive peace deal between Israel and the PA”, Barak Ravid reporting in Haaretz zeros in on a topic we discussed earlier, Will Kerry ask Israel to ratify chemical weapons treaty, with Syria plan afoot?
Next week President Obama and Iranian president Hassan Rouhani will be speaking at the U.N. General Assembly on the same day. According to the Guardian the leaders may be meeting face to face, the first such meeting between a US president and his Iranian counterpart since Carter met the Shah in 1977. But then, maybe not. The White House is saying, “currently”, there are no plans to meet.
As John Kerry meets with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Geneva today to discuss the dismantling of Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile the Wall Street Journal spotlights a “ripple effect”, the focus on Israel’s nuclear program.
This morning NPR’s David Welna reports, Pro-Israel Lobby Finds Longtime Supporters Defect On Syria , on AIPAC’s influence in Congress during this rare instance the lobby is fighting an uphill battle over the proposed U.S. attack on Syria.
What a difference a day makes. In the last 24 hours the Senate vote, originally set for Wednesday to authorize a strike against Syria, has been postponed. Obama undercut his speech to the nation tonight, originally intended to ramp up support for the strike, by making the rounds on networks news shows and announcing he’d be exhausting “all avenues of diplomatic resolution.” What if we’ve been bluffed? What if Obama never cared if he looked like the loser? What if taking it to Congress was intended to provide him with a mandate NOT to invade Syria all along, and not to set our country up for a war with Iran?
With discontent over a strike swelling here at home, curiosity over whether Obama would take action sans congressional approval has peaked. When reporters queried Obama on the crucial issue he ducked, swerved and then bluntly blurted out: “You’re not getting any direct response.”
The New York Times has a high profile article today by C.J. Chivers centered around a chilling video of Syrian rebels executing captured Syrian soldiers. The article titled “Brutality of Syrian Rebels Posing Dilemma in West”, offers the rebels violence as a challenge to the Obama administration who has sought to place the U.S. on the “right side” of the conflict.
Jon Stewart returned to the Daily Show from his 12-week summer hiatus with engines in full sneering throttle over US plans to invade Syria.
Latest Pew poll shows Americans opposed to a strike on Syria by 48 to 29 percent with 23 not sure. KY Sen Rand Paul says no one who calls his office supports the attack
Fireagra, by Mark Fiore, a Viagra parody, is getting a lot of attention
Here’s some image buffing we don’t see every day. “Israeli soldiers are still finding time to party” with Palestinians is sweeping the press today. Allegedly the video was recorded on Monday at a Palestinian wedding in Hebron, the same day … Continue reading
Do the neoconservatives want a confrontation with Iran over Syria so as to utterly dispel the liberal hopes of detente? And doesn’t the push for war remind you of Iraq push?
In yet another blow to peace talks, this morning Israeli undercover forces entered Qalandia refugee camp to arrest a Palestinian man. A Palestinian crowd sought to prevent the arrest and Israeli forces opened fire. Three men were killed, much as one man was killed in Jenin refugee camp last week under similar circumstances. The Palestinian Authority has called the killings a crime and canceled talks set to take place today in Jericho.
