Top Hamas official answers the questions #AskHamas couldn’t

Hamas is a complicated and multifaceted organization. It simultaneously encompasses three distinct identities as a social movement, political party, and armed forces. Elected to majority control of Gaza’s government in 2006, Hamas’ military and political bureaus have separate leadership.

Israel Working With Al-Qaeda? « LobeLog

But Smith’s article is important, and not only for helping to confirm (and in The Weekly Standard no less!) reports of Israel’s effective cooperation (even sharing intelligence!) with al-Nusra/al-Qaeda. Without necessarily meaning to, the article also justifies the realpolitik that underpins Israel’s position, which, notwithstanding Smith’s weasel-worded subtitle, boils down to “the enemy of my […]

Code Pink’s Medea Benjamin Responds To John McCain Calling Her ‘Low Life Scum’ | Crooks and Liars

Despite warnings by senior US officials that thousands of Chileans were being tortured and slaughtered, then Secretary of State Kissinger told Pinochet, “You did a great service to the West in overthrowing Allende.” Rather than calling peaceful protesters “despicable”, perhaps Senator McCain should have used that term to describe Kissinger’s role in the brutal 1975 […]

CIA Tortured People on British Territory / Sputnik US – News, Opinion, Radio

“No one has indicated there was a detention site there, not in so many words,” Wilkerson told VICE. “What they indicated is that interrogations took place there.” “What I heard was more along the lines of using it as a transit location when perhaps other places were full or other places were deemed too dangerous […]

FOCUS | French Government’s Response to Paris Shooting Echoes U.S. Response to 9/11

The French lawmaker’s lone stance was reminiscent of U.S. senator Russ Feingold’s solitary vote against the Patriot Act, accompanied by his prescient warning about how the act would allow the government to “compel the disclosure of the personal records of anyone.” Following the Paris murders, there has been discussion in France about creating its own […]

Noam Chomsky: Only one thing will make Israel change course | Israeli Occupation Archive

Since November 2005 the terms of these agreements have remained essentially the same. The regular pattern is for Israel to disregard whatever agreement is in place, while Hamas observes it—as Israel has conceded—until a sharp increase in Israeli violence elicits a Hamas response, followed by even fiercer brutality.

Aotearoa: A Wider Perspective

"The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is not the victory over either Eurasia or East Asia, but to keep the very structure of society intact." George Orwell
