Spotlight on Israeli Textbooks

Israeli TextbooksAs many of you might know there is a long standing controversy over Palestinian textbooks. The Israelis, their Zionist supporters, and even the U.S. government has lined up to complain loudly and bitterly that Palestinian textbooks do not include Israel on their maps, or they show an Israel that is geographically small. They speak of Zionism as an "enemy ideology" and the IDF as a conquering army. They describe Israeli settlers as "illegal immigrants" or worse. And, particularly in the complaints offered by US government, there is a demand for greater emphasis on "peace and tolerance." The Palestinian text books have to change, according to the critics. Indeed, all of Palestinian education has to be "reformed."

Newt Gingrich Calls Obama a 'Socialist'

Newt GingrichNewt (short for Newton) Gingrich, the right-wing Republican who would be President is back. Gingrich made himself infamous by helping his party’s conservative wing become master of the House of Representatives in 1994. For many years he led that majority. As we know the Republicans only lasted 12 years in power, but in that period managed to nearly ruin the country and did major damage to the rest of the world as well. Of course, Newt doesn’t see it that way. In fact he has most things reversed and so his complaints and claims don’t make much sense at all–unless you know no history.

aid-shipLife in the Military Box

One of humanity’s perennial problems is that soldiers almost never think "outside the box." Indeed, they are trained to think about the most effective way to carry out orders. The orders always define the box and so it becomes difficult, even dangerous, to think critically about the orders themselves. The result is that, from the highest to the lowest, soldiers are locked into a system where to think about the legitimacy, the legality, the rationality of one’s orders is like challenging a god. You are going to end up harshly punished if you do.

US Zionists Attack Gaza Flotilla Participants and Turkey

Prime Minister ErdoganPart I
 
On Monday June 14 five elected Democratic Representatives, all from New York, got together to vilify the Gaza aid flotilla participants. By doing so Anthony Weiner (NY 9th district), Charles Rangel (NY 15th district), Carolyn Maloney (NY 14th district), Eliot Engel (NY 17th district) and Jerrold Nadler (NY 8th district) all vied with each other for the distinction of being the furthest out of touch with reality. In pursuit of this distinction here is some of what they said.

Australia Ignores Israeli Terrorism Against Australians

Israeli TerrorismAustralia has had a long, 2 century history of racism, genocide and support for Anglo-American imperialism. In the 21st century this has continued with Australian military involvement in the ongoing Iraqi and Afghan Genocide;  horrendous Indigenous Australian deaths from deprivation (Aboriginal Genocide); national law- and international law-violating, race-based laws or regulations against Indigenous Australians and against Afghan refugees and Tamil refugees fleeing what scholars have described as the Afghan Genocide and the Tamil Genocide, respectively; and, of course, slavish support for US-backed, racist Zionist-run Apartheid Israel.
