  • A powerful but masochistic expression of gratitude by the USA to Israel

    by Mark Glenn
    Today, while driving through town, I wound up behind a minivan that had a big sticker on the back. The sticker had an Israeli flag in the middle of it and under it the quotation from the book of Genesis that reads "I will bless those who bless thee." I would like to take this time to list my own reasons for thanking and blessing Israel, our lone ally in the Middle East, for everything she has done for us, since I am quite sure most Americans are unaware of just what kind of friend she has (...) continue continue
  • Israel’s Policy of Killing Civilians

    2 June 2010, by Paolo Barnard
    Translated in English from Italian by Gulagnik’s Diego Traversa for http://gulagnik.wordpress.com and www.palestinethinktank.com Killing civilians has been State policy in Israel since 1948 (and, prior to that, of Zionism). It’s not about “tragic mistakes”, there’s no “deep regret for the incident”. Killing civilians is what Israel has founded itself on with the ethnic cleansing of Palestine and this is what allows it to live. What is to be added to this is the outright impunity Israel enjoys due (...) continue continue
  • Western leaders are too cowardly to help save lives

    1 June 2010, by Robert Fisk
    Has Israel lost it? Can the Gaza War of 2008-09 (1,300 dead) and the Lebanon War of 2006 (1,006 dead) and all the other wars and now yesterday’s killings mean that the world will no longer accept Israel’s rule? Don’t hold your breath. You only have to read the gutless White House statement – that the Obama administration was "working to understand the circumstances surrounding the tragedy". Not a single word of condemnation. And that’s it. Nine dead. Just another statistic to add to the Middle (...) continue continue
  • NATO’s other member state

    26 May 2010, by David Cronin
    Israel’s worst-kept secret has finally been revealed. Documents published in recent days show that Israel not only has nuclear weapons — something it has never officially acknowledged — but that it considered selling them to South Africa’s white minority government in 1975. The evidence — contained in Sasha Polakow-Suransky’s new book The Unspoken Alliance: Israel’s Secret Relationship with Apartheid South Africa — appears strong and credible. But will it cause Europe and America to rethink their (...) continue continue
  • Israel’s Nukes Out of the Shadows

    26 May 2010, by Jonathan Cook
    Israel faces unprecedented pressure to abandon its official policy of “ambiguity” on its possession of nuclear weapons as the international community meets at the United Nations in New York this week to consider banning such arsenals from the Middle East. Israel’s equivocal stance on its atomic status was shattered by reports on Monday that it offered to sell nuclear-armed Jericho missiles to South Africa’s apartheid regime back in 1975. The revelations are deeply embarrassing to Israel given (...) continue continue

  • Ten Israeli Negotiating Strategies

    10 May 2010, by Mohsen Saleh
    Israel has a negotiating strategy that is designed to prolong the negotiations, allowing more time for the construction of facts on the ground and putting it in a position to impose its will on the "final-status" talks. In fact, the strategy can be broken down into 10 distinct sub-strategies, done in the article that follows. Overall, the Israeli strategy is based on conflict management, not conflict resolution, and it seeks to weaken its opponents bit by bit until they are convinced that (...) continue continue

  • Sarkozy: Netanyahu’s foot-dragging on peace process is unacceptable

    28 April 2010, by Barak Ravid

Sarkozy made his comments at the Elysee Palace two weeks ago. The latest criticism follows the diplomatic crisis between Netanyahu and U.S. President Barack Obama and the subsequent fallout between Netanyahu and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. High-level Israeli officials briefed on the (...) continue continue
  • Bill Clinton Encourages Obama on Mideast Peace Effort

    19 April 2010, by Laura Meckler
    Former President Bill Clinton said he would "strongly support" an effort by President Barack Obama to issue his own Middle East peace plan, something now under discussion at the White House. "We need to do something to deprive both sides of any excuse not to engage in serious negotiations," Mr. Clinton said in an interview aired Sunday on ABC’s "This Week." "If this is the tactic he decides to adopt, I will strongly support it." Mr. Clinton said he has talked the issue over with Mr. Obama (...) continue continue
