Did the U.S. double-cross the Maldivian pro-democracy movement just so it could establish a military base there? Mohamed Nasheed, the dynamic, young, pro-environmentalist Muslim leader who had led race for presidency after the first round, lost by a couple of percentage points to the old regime’s candidate, Abdulla Yameen.
Yesterday a charismatic young politician came first in elections for Maldives president. But the army deposed him once and the government is postponing the final round of elections. And incompetence at the US State Department threatens Mohamed Nasheed, a progressive Muslim environmentalist leader.

America’s leading newspaper ignores the Gaza assault as part of the Israeli prime minister’s election campaign
Biden called Netanyahu Bibi over and over again in the debate last night– because the press does so. And when the press calls him “Bibi,” they humanize him in an affectionate way, making him out to be a bumbler– like one of the inept thieves in the movie Home Alone. When in fact he’s the prime minister of a militant and colonial state that imprisons thousands and that lately whitewashed the killing of a 23-year-old American woman

The Bibliotheca Alexandrina, in Alexandria, Egypt, was blasted for having the ‘Protocols of Elders of Zion’ in an exhibit. A reporter visits and finds a very different scene.
Some of the young Israeli journalists who started the vital web-based magazine 972mag.com are in the United States to promote their new venture, and I was lucky enough to meet them here in New York City, at the premises of … Continue reading
Once again, the New York Times‘s public editor has taken the paper’s Jerusalem bureau chief, Ethan Bronner, to the woodshed for conflict of interest. This time, Bronner was caught (by the tireless Max Blumenthal) getting paid to give speeches by … Continue reading
