By: Wednesday July 9, 2014 7:03 pm

And yet still we get obscene propaganda from the mainstream ‘news’ masquerading as a headline:

“Gaza rockets land deep in Israel as it bombards Palestinian enclave”

On Gaza, Key Israelis Speak of Ethnic Cleansing and Mass Killing

By: Tuesday July 8, 2014 5:46 pm

Found this remarkable comment by 46nd2 under a CNN article on the latest Israeli air strikes on Gaza, mostly on civilians and government officials. (At least 13 have died so far, all but two apparently civilians.)

By: Monday July 7, 2014 6:45 am

After race riots swept Israel following the killing of three Israeli teens, Muhammed Abu Khudair, a Palestinian teenager who had nothing to do with the killings, was reportedly abducted by Israeli settlers and burned alive. The killing of Khudair had all the hallmarks of racial vengeance and has left many Israelis and supporters of Israel shocked and ashamed.

Last night Rachel Maddow did a segment on the racist mobs that successfully turned back busloads of immigrant women and children in Merrieta, California. The scene was not unlike Little Rock, the Edmund Pettus bridge, or any garden variety racist atrocity, and Rachel was appropriately outraged.

With the news that the bodies of three missing Israeli teens had been found in a field not far from the stretch of road where they disappeared June 12, people everywhere reacted rightly with sorrow and anger.

Eyal Yifrah, 19, Gilad Shaar, 16, and Naftali Fraenkel, also 16, were students who lived with their families in a Jewish-only settlement near the Palestinian city of Hebron in the West Bank.

Late Night: So Obama Knows How to Play Cards After All?

By: Sunday June 29, 2014 8:00 pm

Anyone who thinks Congress (especially Congressional Republicans) will happily and readily go along with anything Obama says he wants, raise your hand. Then smack yourself on the forehead with it.
