Egypt’s newly elected president, Mohammed Morsi, gave an historic speech at the United Nations General Assembly yesterday. The focus of Morsi’s speech was Palestine — yet you wouldn’t know it if you read the New York Times. The preoccupation of … Continue reading
Gunter Grass has made a logical demand: Israel’s own huge nuclear arsenal must be acknowledged as a factor in the Middle East conflict
NYT piece on Ron Paul lumps Shlomo Sand’s landmark critique of Zionist mythmaking, The Invention of the Jewish People, with white supremacist writings
Back in the days when hazy-eyed neoconservatives stood like prophets laying out their vision of a democratic wave of Biblical proportions sweeping across the Middle East, Israel was supposedly the actualization of what elsewhere might be possible. The problem was … Continue reading
Is it possible to break the siege of Gaza if no one notices? As an exercise in directing global attention to the plight of a population subject to collective punishment, the first flotilla in August 2008 was a bit of … Continue reading
Some think the Middle East isn’t ready for democracy — in truth it’s the West that isn’t ready. Nicholas Kristof duly notes: Egyptians triumphed over their police state without Western help or even moral support. During rigged parliamentary elections, the … Continue reading
As the Transportation Security Administration faces a barrage of criticism, some indignant Americans are calling for the “Israelification” of US airports — as though the security procedures used in a tiny Middle Eastern ethnocracy with one international airport could easily … Continue reading
Shariah: The Threat to America, a report released by the Center for Security Policy in Washington DC on Wednesday, is an attempt to provide a veneer of seriousness in support of the hysterical ravings of people like Pamela Geller. The … Continue reading
If there’s just one lesson we can draw from the last decade it is this: utter the word “terrorism” and thought grinds to a halt, perceptions become blinkered and the power of human intelligence is suddenly put on hold. Consider … Continue reading
Another way of saying “sacred” is to say “off-limits.” Something can be sanctified by placing a barrier around it constructed from rigid taboos. The most extreme among those taboos dictates not only silence but also exclusion. In such a way, … Continue reading
Hamas has leaped into the New York mosque controversy — well, actually, not so much leaped as diffidently tiptoed when pressed to express an opinion on the issue. In an interview on New York’s WABC radio (audio can be heard … Continue reading
There are those who would have us believe that: [O]ne day next spring, the Israeli national-security adviser, Uzi Arad, and the Israeli defense minister, Ehud Barak, will simultaneously telephone their counterparts at the White House and the Pentagon, to inform … Continue reading
The folks at Palestinian Refugee ResearchNet thought they’d create a Facebook page only to discover: Facebook blocks the term “Palestinian”! (H/t Jillian C York.) Are Palestinians the only group so blocked from making pages? Well, not really… after a little … Continue reading
“Don’t boycott Israel,” says the headline in Newsweek. Jacob Weisberg, editor-in-chief at Slate and author of the piece calls a boycott a “repellent idea” with consequences that are “intrinsically vile.” But pointing out the “sheeplike, liberal opinion” of celebrities like … Continue reading
On October 15, 2008, just three weeks before the US presidential election, George Bush signed into law the Naval Vessel Transfer Act which had been sponsored by one of Israel’s most loyal supporters in the US Congress, Rep. Howard Berman. … Continue reading
On September 11, 2001, George Bush changed the way Americans look at the world and the success with which he accomplished this feat is evident in the fact that his perspective largely remains unchallenged — even among many of his … Continue reading
“The man who ordered the attack on the aid flotilla to Gaza, set up the inquiry, chose its members and determined its mandate, has announced its outcome even before it has started,” wrote Chris Doyle, noting Benjamin Netanyahu’s visible satisfaction, … Continue reading
On May 31, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described the actions of IDF soldiers who had conducted the raid on the Mavi Marmara, killing at least nine of its passengers, as “a clear case of self-defense because as our soldiers … Continue reading

The MV Rachel Corrie, a cargo ship in the Freedom Flotilla whose passage from Ireland was delayed by mechanical difficulties, is now hours away from its destination. “I commend this courageous action of brave international civilians who are carrying essential … Continue reading
Carlo Strenger notes in Haaretz: During the media frenzy of the last days a crucial headline has received close to no attention: Mossad chief Meir Dagan told the Knesset’s Foreign Relations Committee that Israel is gradually turning from a strategic … Continue reading
