Iran: A Bridge too Far? The weapon that could defeat the US in the Gulf
By : Mark Gaffney - Sunday August 14, 2011
1 comment
A word to the reader: The following paper is so shocking that, after preparing the initial draft, I didn’t want to believe it myself, and resolved to disprove it with more research. However, I only succeeded in turning up more evidence in support of my thesis. And I repeated this cycle of discovery and denial several more times before finally deciding to go with the article. I believe that a serious writer must follow the trail of evidence, no matter where it leads, and report back. (...)

Dichter’s Law
By : Uri Avnery - Sunday August 14, 2011
“THE PEOPLE Demand Social Justice!” 250 thousand protesters chanted in unison in Tel Aviv last Saturday. But what they need – to quote an American artist - is “more unemployed politicians”. Fortunately, the Knesset has gone on a prolonged vacation, three months. For as Mark Twain quipped: “No man’s life or property is safe while the legislature is in session.” As if to prove this point, MK Avi Dichter submitted, on the very last day of the (...)

State to OK 4,300 new homes in East Jerusalem
By : JERUSALEM - Sunday August 14, 2011
1 comment
Palestinians oppose all Israeli construction in East Jerusalem because they hope to establish the capital of a future state there. Interior Minister Eli Yishai gave final authorization to build 1,600 apartments in East Jerusalem and will approve 2,700 more in days, officials said Wednesday. Actual construction likely will not begin for years, because building plans have to go through multiple approval processes. But the decision could complicate diplomatic efforts to dissuade Palestinians (...)

Australia quits Iraqi Genocide: 4.6 million Iraqi war-related deaths, 1990-2011
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Friday August 12, 2011
Australia has been involved since 1990 in the Iraqi Holocaust and Iraqi Genocide (4.6 million war-related deaths, 1990-2011) but has just withdrawn its last remaining 17 soldiers, replacing them with Chilean mercenaries to guard the Australian embassy. Racist White Australia – an Apartheid Australia because of its race-based laws and regulations applied to Indigenous Australians and to Afghan and Tamil refugees - must be held to account for its complicity in the ongoing Iraqi (...)

Putin says US acting as ’parasite’ on world economy SELIGER, Russia — Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on Monday accused the United States of acting as a "parasite" on the world economy by accumulating massive debts that threatened to shake global finance. "The country is living in debt. It is not living within its means, shifting the weight of responsibility on other countries, and in a way acting as a parasite," Putin told a group of pro-Kremlin youth in central (...)

Another stinging blow for Libya
By : Victor Kotsev - Saturday July 30, 2011
The killing of Libyan rebel military commander General Abdel Fattah Younes could lead to a violent split inside anti-government forces and comes as a major rebel offensive is failing to produce significant gains prior to the onset of the holy Muslim month of Ramadan in August when extremely hot weather and all-day fasts makes warfare very difficult and slow. The death of the general, whose body along with those of two senior aides was reportedly found badly burnt on Thursday, brings into (...)

UN Commission Flotilla Massacre Report

Despite irrefutable evidence, including the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) concluding last September that Israel committed serious “violations of international law, including international humanitarian law” by massacring nine Gaza Flotilla activists, injuring dozens more, in international waters, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon appeased Israel by appointing his own commission. On July 25, Haaretz writer Barak Ravid headlined, “UN delays flotilla report as Jerusalem and (...)

Israel shouldn’t brainwash its children
By : Haaretz Editorial - Wednesday July 20, 2011
There is nothing easier than getting preeschoolers to parrot an anthem and getting them excited by chauvinistic and religious ceremonies. The Ministry of Education gave preschool supervisors and teachers a packet for planning and preparation for the coming school year. The first chapter is on "education to Zionist, Jewish, democratic and social values," much like the educational goals for elementary and secondary schools. After perusing it, it is hard to decide whether to laugh or cry: The (...)

Israeli ship attacks international solidarity boat crew off Gaza coast

I am writing this exactly twelve hours after I was attacked by an Israeli warship, off the Gaza coast. As a member of the Civil Peace Service, I board the Oliva boat around twice a week to monitor Gazan fishermen’s human rights. But today, it wasn’t just the fishermen who were targeted. We approached a cluster of hasaka fishing boats that were being attacked with water cannons at midday on July 13. As we got closer all I could focus on was the officer manning the machine gun, (...)

Gaza-bound ship carrying pro-Palestinian activists sets sail from Greece
By : Amira Hass - Monday July 18, 2011
SOMEWHERE IN THE EAST MEDITERRANEAN – On Saturday evening a Gaza-bound boat left Greek territorial waters. Its 10 participants regard themselves as representatives of the entire abortive flotilla to Gaza, and are determined to exhaust all possibilities in order to reach their destination, or at least carry out the symbolic act of protesting the blockade. They are well aware of the Lilliputian dimensions of their venture, compared with the massive impact organizers had initially (...)

By Uri Avnery People see elderly, nonviolent human rights activists as dangerous provocateurs because the government and the media tell them so. For several weeks now, our army and navy have been in a state of high alert, bravely facing a deadly threat to our very existence: 10 little boats trying to reach Gaza. These vessels are carrying a dangerous gang of vicious terrorists, in the form of elderly veterans of peace campaigns. Benjamin Netanyahu has affirmed our unshakable (...)

Statement of Support for the Gaza-Bound Freedom Flotilla
By : Gaza - Tuesday July 5, 2011
We, Israeli organizations, Jews and Arabs, full-heartedly support Freedom Flotilla, aim of sailing to the Port of Gaza with the proclaimed goals of breaking through the sea and land siege and blockade of Gaza, which is a manifestation of a continuing occupation by Israel. We condemn the campaign of slander which the government of Israel is waging against the flotilla and those who take part in it. There is a very real reason to worry that such lies might be designed by the government as a (...)

It’s Official: China Is The "Mystery" Daily Buyer Of Billions Of Euros
By : Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge - Thursday June 30, 2011
by Tyler Durden 06/29/2011 Over the past two weeks, we have been suggesting, tongue in cheekily, that despite the relentless desires of everyone to sell the EUR, it has continued to drift higher, due to some inexplicable force with bottomless pockets, which, after some deductive logic, we assumed was China. It turns out we were correct. Naturally, figuring out what China does with its $3 trillion in foreign reserves is sometimes more complex than brain surgery (except what it does every (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
