There is no more “peace process” between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. Secretary of State John Kerry’s attempt at a framework agreement failed.

I’ve been predicting since late 2013 that 2014 would turn out to be a watershed year for the advancement of Palestinian rights, and for a deeper understanding of the reality of the inevitability of the single-state solution to the Palestine-Israel dilemma.

When Buzzfeed posted an article attacking Max Blumenthal by using his father many were left in shock and awe.
