Smearing, Libelling, Intimidating: How Jeremy Corbyn’s Detractors are Plotting to Take Him Down

Every day you log on, you ask yourself how much dirtier the campaign to unseat Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the Labour Party is going to get, how much lower his enemies are going to sink. And each day they surpass themselves in the race to the gutter of British politics. Last week, Britain's three …

It Is Netanyahu, Not Corbyn, Who Deserves ‘Unequivocal Condemnation’

Everyone and their brother in the UK - at least the tabloid media and pro-Israel apologists - has got it into their heads that the Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn laid a wreath on the grave of the Palestinian mastermind of the Munich massacre while visiting Tunisia in 2014. Is any of this true? Well, …

Why Confronting Israel Is Important – The Jewish State Is No Friend

The problem with that formulation is that the so-called “special relationship” with Israel is itself the result of terrible …

Israel vs. Iran: “Disappear from the World” vs. “Vanish from the Pages of Time”

The global silence over Israel’s hopes that “the Iranian regime would disappear entirely from this world” stands in stark contrast to the worldwide outrage over similarly phrased wishes on behalf of Iran 12 years ago to see its Zionist enemy “vanish from the pages of time”. International Relations are characterized by double standards because each actor …

Farcical “Ceasefire” in Gaza

Israeli ceasefire terms are one-way, demanding everything, giving nothing in return but empty promises – breached every time made. They’re all about affording to itself the right to use indiscriminate, disproportionate force against defenseless Palestinian civilians – the right to kill, maim, and otherwise brutalize them with impunity, while denying them the right of self-defense. …
