  • Les Palestiniens en colère : les colons saccagent une mosquée près de Naplouse

    12 décembre 2009,
    Des colons extrémistes israéliens se sont livrés à de graves actes de vandalisme dans une mosquée palestinienne proche de Naplouse (nord de la Cisjordanie) dans la nuit de jeudi à vendredi, ont indiqué hier les services de sécurité palestiniens. Selon les autorités locales palestiniennes, les colons ont mis le feu à des livres de prière, dont des Corans, et à un tapis dans la principale mosquée du village de Kfar Yassuf après en avoir fracturé la porte. Les agresseurs ont également peint un graffiti (...) suite suite

  • Living by the Gate From Hell

    by Ellen Cantarow
    At no time since its 1967 West Bank occupation have Israel’s seizures of Palestinian land and water resources seemed as shocking as the ones attending its construction of "the wall," begun in 2002. Vast, complex, and shifting in form, the wall appears most dramatically as 25-foot-high concrete slabs punctuated by militarized watch towers, supplemented by electronically monitored electrified fences stretching over vast distances. In 2004, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) declared the (...) continue continue
  • What the U.S. Elite Really Thinks About Israel

    8 December 2009, by Jeffrey Blankfort
    The Council on Foreign Relations is always near the top of the Left’s list of bogeymen that stand accused of pulling the strings of US foreign policy. It is right up there with the Bilderberg Group and the Trilateral Commission, right? Wrong. If that was the case, those arguing that US support for Israel is based on it being a "strategic asset" will have a hard time explaining a Pew Research Center survey on America’s Place in the World, taken of 642 CFR members between October 2 and November (...) continue continue
  • Help save the Palestinian village of Lifta from total destruction

    26 November 2009,
    Lifta, a most picturesque Palestinian village, lies on the slopes of West Jerusalem below the highway linking it to Tel-Aviv. It has been abandoned since the invading Hagana underground forces backed by the Stern Gang drove the last of its Palestinian inhabitants in 1948 during the ethnic cleansing of Palestine. It was the one single event which changed the nature of the place and the whole region. Although dozens of houses were destroyed, many of them still remain poised on the landscape. (...) continue continue
  • "My Name is Rachel Corrie" and Israel’s waning impunity

    2 December 2009, by Charlotte Silver
    On 19 November 2009 the play My Name is Rachel Corrie, was staged at Stanford University. Amanda Gelender produced the play as a part of her Stanford senior thesis. Amanda is my friend and was also my college classmate. We worked together in several campus political organizations, including the student-led Israel divestment campaign. I attended opening night and along with a sold-out audience was struck by the poignancy of the play and Amanda’s subtle and deeply moving performance. Rachel (...) continue continue
  • British TV documentary tackles taboo of Israel’s lobby

    19 November 2009, by Diane Langford
    For the first time a mainstream British television program has tackled the Zionist lobby head-on. Channel 4’s Dispatches, broadcast on 16 November, promised to hold the pro-Israel lobby up to rigorous public scrutiny and it succeeded. Presented by Peter Oborne, former political editor of the right-wing weekly The Spectator, Dispatches revealed the cozy relationship between Britain’s pro-Israel lobby and both the Conservative and Labour parties as well as its attempts to stifle criticism of (...) continue continue
  • Shimon Pérès, le nucléaire israélien et "l’option Samson"

    2 décembre 2009, par Laurent Zecchini
    Si Israël était menacé de destruction, faudrait-il qu’il ait recours à l’"option Samson" ? A cette question, posée par Gil Kopatch et Shani Keinan, producteurs d’un film pas encore diffusé retraçant sa vie, le président israélien, Shimon Pérès, répond avec une surprenante franchise : "L’objectif de ces réacteurs [nucléaires] est d’empêcher la destruction [d’Israël], et jusqu’à maintenant, cela a bien fonctionné. J’espère que cela continuera à fonctionner à l’avenir." L’"option Samson" est un secret de (...) suite suite
  • “…And A Little Child Shall Lead Them”

    28 November 2009, by Uri Avnery
    THOMAS FRIEDMAN, the New York Times columnist, has an idea. That happens to him quite often. One might almost say - too often. It goes like this: The US will turn its back on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The entire world will follow. Everybody is fed up with this conflict. Let the Israelis and the Palestinians sort out their problems by themselves. Sounds sensible. Why must the world be bothered with these two unruly children? Let them kick each other as much as they like. The adults (...) continue continue
  • 52 Words That Shook Washington

    27 November 2009, by Franklin Lamb
    "It is the right of the Lebanese people, Army and the (Hezbollah led—ed.)Resistance to liberate the Shebaa Farms, the Kfar Shuba Hills and the northern part of the village of Ghajar as well as to defend Lebanon and its territorial waters in the face of any enemy by all available and legal means.” So reads the Policy Declaration of the new Government of the Republic of Lebanon, issued on November 26,2009, four days after the celebration of Lebanon’s 66 years of independence from the French (...) continue continue
