'No one has faced this before' --- New eruptions at Hawaii volcano sends lava closer to power plant

Authorities in Hawaii were scrambling to firm up contingency plans Tuesday as hot, powerful lava flowing from Hawaii's erupting Kilauea volcano slowly encroached on a Big Island power plant.

The lava flow entered the 800-acre property of the Puna Geothermal Venture Plant on Monday and had stalled at a swale about 300 yards from the nearest underground well. On Tuesday, the lava was advancing.

"Fissure 6 reactivated last night and has been erupting since around midnight," Hawaii County civil defense officials said in a statement. "The flows from Fissure 6 are slowly flowing closer to PGV property."

If lava breaches wells, authorities fear it could release hydrogen sulfide, a toxic and flammable gas. Most of the wells have been capped with a thick, steel plate.

Thomas Travis, an administrator of the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, has warned that the intense heat could diminish the strength of the metal.

Jimmy Carter Endorses Donald Trump for a Nobel Prize After Success in North Korea

Former Jimmy Carter is no fan of Republicans and supported Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign.

But now Carter has announced something extraordinary. If peace can be achieved between North and South Korea, Carter is endorsing the idea of the Nobel prize committee honoring President Donald J. Trump for his historic efforts! Carter himself is a Nobel laureate.

The psychiatric Matrix: what you need to know

First of all, as I reported some months ago, 25% of college students in America have received a diagnosis of a mental disorder, or are on psychiatric drugs. I mention this to indicate how widespread psychiatric control has become.

That statistic has been reported by NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

NAMI also states: “Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S.—43.8 million, or 18.5%—experiences mental illness in a given year.”

These figures are earthshaking. They reflect a relentless push, by organized psychiatry and their pharmaceutical partners, to expand the diagnoses of mental disorders and the toxic drugging that follows.

FEC Records Show DNC Issued Checks to CrowdStrike Day After Murder of Seth Rich, Shawn Lucas

Federal Election Commission records show that CrowdStrike, an FBI contractor and private cyber security firm, received a $98,849.84 check from the Democratic National Committee the day after slain DNC staffer Seth Rich was murdered.

Rich, 27, worked as the voter expansion data director at the DNC for two years. Rich had been working for the DNC at a time when emails from the organization were provided to WikiLeaks for publication.

The series of emails revealed that high-ranking DNC officials and the Clinton team sabotaged Sanders’ candidacy, used racist, anti-gay and sexist slurs when referring to constituents. The emails, indicating the party was manipulating the primary race in favor of Clinton, led to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s resignation as DNC chair.

Seth Rich had just accepted a job with Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign before he was killed near his apartment in an affluent Washington, D.C. neighborhood.

According to Madsen, Snopes was formed by the Central Intelligence Agency for the express purpose of stifling subversive outlets and spreading disinformation and propaganda on the Internet. Until 2013, the CIA had to do this on the down-low because propaganda wasn’t legal yet.

China 'to scrap child limits altogether' in effort to boost its ageing population

China is planning to abandon all policies restricting the number of children people can have, according to a report, in a move that would draw to a close one of the world’s longest, most ambitious and most controversial social experiments.

The one-child policy was introduced in 1979 before it was relaxed to two children in 2016, and the Chinese government claims it prevented 400 million births.

Critics dispute that figure, saying China’s birth rate was already falling anyway in line with other developing countries, and that all the policy did was encourage alarming rates of female infanticide and other abuses.

Kilauea's Wrath Threatens Power Plant — And Hawaii's Most Powerful Industry

In the weeks since the Kilauea volcano began belching lava into Hawaii's residential areas, the fiery flow has destroyed dozens of structures and covered scores of acres on the Big Island. But authorities fear its destructive reach could ravage at least two more cornerstones of the state: its power supply and, a little less tangibly, its all-important tourism industry.

On Monday evening local time, the Hawaii County Civil Defense agency announced that lava from nearby fissures had begun to encroach on the southern edge of one of the state's key sources of power, the Puna Geothermal Venture.

The plant harvests hot liquid and steam from underground wells to drive turbine generators for electricity, which is then sold to the state's largest utility. The plant provides roughly a quarter of the Big Island's power, according to Reuters.

 BlogviewPatrick Cockburn Archive Uncritical Support from the US Will Do Israel More Damage Than Good

The Palestinian issue is back on the international agenda more than at any time over the last 15 years. If the move of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem was intended to demonstrate that the Palestinians were powerless and there was nothing they could do about it, then it has failed.

The embassy move, signalling that the US has abandoned even its previous modest restraint on Israeli actions, had exactly the opposite effect to the one intended. The protesting Palestinians and not the celebrating Israelis and Americans became the central feature of the event. Television split screens showed what looked like a Trump campaign rally in Jerusalem side by side with Israeli soldiers shooting dead 62 Palestinians and wounding a further 1,360 in Gaza.

Israeli claims that they were defending the fence that surrounds Gaza from an attack by Hamas activists armed with stones and kites were contradicted both by the television pictures and the lack of any Israeli casualties.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Patrick Cockburn, whose work I greatly respect, misses one critical point in his equation; the Trump Presidency has absolutely outsourced his Middle East policy to Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu, and that creates an horrific danger for this country, the Middle East in general, and the world.

Please understand; Israel wants to see Lebanon, Syria, and Iran "neutralized, and to see regime change in all countries to create governments which are more Israel-centric. He also wants to see Hamas fail spectacularly in Gaza, and is doing everything within his power to accomplish that goal.

However, the caveat I would share here, is that he only wants this done at the costs of American blood and American money.

And then, there is the 6,000 lb gorilla, snoozing on the Bosendorfer grand, in the living room in the situations in Syria and Iran; that is the presence of Russia, which has pledged to prevent both the regimes in both countries from falling, if they are attacked militarily.

Tel Aviv would love nothing better than creating the climate for "Let Russia and the US fight it out in Syria and Iran." And what happens if such a war is a Pyrrhic victory for both sides?!?

Israel is then in position to control all the region's oil, and in what currency that oil will be sold.

Do not be deceived here; in terms of nation-to-nation "friendship", Israel is a true "frenemy", ready to instantly turn away, when the dead host, WarMerica, can no longer support its hubristic warmongering in the region.

And this is followed by a companion article, also from antiwar.com, which is more than a little eye-opening on the topic of the US government "never being able to do enough for Israel":

Israeli MPs Push Trump to Let Them Use Military Aid on Non-US Equipment

The article goes on to state:

"The $38 billion aid package is to be spent on US-made equipment. This has been a common way to make foreign aid politically safe, as it means that money is ultimately going to US arms makers who have a lot of influence.

Israeli officials, however, see this US armament as a problem for their economy. The Israeli Knesset Finance Committee is estimating that 22,000 Israeli jobs would be lost if the US doesn’t just send Israel the money straightaway and let them spending on Israeli-made arms."

Revealed: The Top Trump Staffer Who Got the FBI Mole On the Campaign!

President Trump’s top trade adviser, Peter Navarro, recommended appointing Stefan Halper to a senior role in the Trump administration.

During the presidential transition Navarro recommended Halper, among other people, for ambassador roles in Asia. A White House official said Halper visited the Eisenhower Executive Office Building last August for a meeting about China.

During the transition everyone involved in Trump’s presidential campaign was asked to submit resumes for administration positions. Halper, who already knew Navarro in the context of being a China scholar and interviewing for his anti-China book and film, pitched himself for an ambassadorship in Asia, according to a source briefed on their interactions.

Navarro says he submitted Halper’s name for the Asian ambassadorship — we have not been able to confirm the country — along with around a dozen other people for roles in the region.

Breaking: Russian military launches airstrikes, cruise missiles over Idlib after drone incident

The Russian military unleashed their wrath over the Idlib Governorate, tonight, targeting several areas controlled by the jihadist rebels in the western part of the province.

According to a Syrian military source in Latakia, the Russian military began their attack by launching several airstrikes over Idlib city, Idlib Central Prison, Al-Mastouma, Ariha, and Sheikh ‘Ali.

Following the airstrikes, the source stated that the Russian Navy fired a number of cruise missiles towards these same areas in Idlib, resulting in several explosions.

The Russian assault was conducted in retaliation for militant attempt to attack the Hmaymim Airport with a drone earlier tonight.

Italy’s incoming government wants to lift Russia sanctions and rewrite EU rules

The power-sharing agreement between Italy's two populist parties is likely to raise concerns for officials at the European Union.

The left-wing Five Star Movement (M5S) and the far-right Lega are on the brink of clinching power in the southern European nation, forming a coalition after neither party gained enough seats to govern alone at March elections. They released their plans for the next executive Friday morning which would potentially end more than two months of political instability in the third largest euro zone economy. The plan will be voted on by their members over the weekend and, if approved, could bring further problems for the EU.

Their plan aims for a "necessary" re-discussion over European treaties, a "reduction" of the powers coming from Brussels, and a return to a pre-Maastricht setting.

US 'has bigger stick' to hold EU hostage over Iran sanctions – ex-EU Commissioner to RT

As Brussels aims to circumnavigate US sanctions against EU companies doing business with Iran, former European Commission Vice President Guenter Verheugen told RT that America still "has the bigger stick."

Verheugen told RT's Sophie Shevardnadze on the SophieCo show that European companies are essentially backed into a corner when they consider the economic benefits they receive by doing business with the US, versus Iran.

"I’m afraid that the Americans have the bigger stick here,” said Verheugen. “If you were a European company or a German carmaker, for instance, and if you look at the figures, what kind of business you do in Iran, what kind of business you do in the United States, you have not much choice, and you will decide not to invest in Iran, you will continue to invest and make business in the US."

The vast majority of Germans believe the US is not a reliable partner for Berlin when it comes to political cooperation, according to a new poll. It comes after Chancellor Merkel said that Europe can no longer rely on Washington.

The survey, commissioned by public service TV provider ZDF, found that 82 percent of Germans believe the US is not a reliable partner, with only 14 percent believing it is. The remaining four percent were unsure.

It comes after German Chancellor Angela Merkel stated earlier this month that Europe "needs to take its fate into its own hands," noting that "it's no longer the case that the United States will simply just protect us."

Russian-made smartphones using domestic OS to go on sale in 2019

Sales of smartphones made in Russia and based on the mobile operating system Sailfish OS will begin in 2019, President of the Russian communications services provider Rostelecom Mikhail Oseevsky told TASS on Monday.

In March, Rostelecom took control of the developers of the mobile operating system Sailfish OS and Sailfish Mobile OS Rus. The company signed the purchase and sale agreements on the acquisition of 75% of the shares in Open Mobile Platform LLC and 75% in Votron LLC.

When asked by TASS when the smartphone sales will start Oseevsky said:

"In 2019. They are in production already, now they are being tested in a number of ministries and departments. They already exist. This solution is primarily aimed at ensuring the country’s information sovereignty and data protection."

Hillary Clinton REFUSES to endorse Cynthia Nixon's run for New York governor and tells her supporters to vote for Andrew Cuomo - while her husband is banned from campaigning

Bill and Hillary Clinton have split when it comes to the 2018 midterms election with Hillary looking to use her influence to block the left and Bill having vanished from the political scene.

Hillary is expected to throw her weight into the New York governor's contest this week when she rejects 'Sex and the City' actress Cynthia Nixon's bid for the job and instead endorses Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the contentious Democratic primary, the New York Times reported.

The Clintons, who were once the ultimate Democratic political power couple, appear to have become victims of their own actions and ambitions.

Fair wages, the “absolute promise of universal health care,” public school funding, gun safety reform and equal pay were at the top of the former first lady’s agenda items that she thought should stay central to the Democratic Party’s platform.

In memorable fashion, Trump vowed to “drain the swamp” and to formulate an “America First” approach to policy. If elected, Trump would end the reckless squandering of American power.

EU businesses are bending to Washington's will regardless of vocal displeasure from Brussels and major European capitals' over the resumption of anti-Iran sanctions by Donald Trump.

"Looking at latest decisions of Donald Trump someone could even think: with friends like that who needs enemies. But frankly, EU should be grateful. Thanks to him we got rid of all illusions. We realize that if you need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of your arm," European Council President Donald Tusk tweeted on May 16, following Trump's decision to pull out of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Actions (JCPOA), commonly known as the Iran nuclear deal.

The English-language version of a diary written by the priest who heard the confession of the last Russian Tsar and his family has been published in the United States, the rector of the Russian Saint John the Baptist cathedral in Washington, Father Victor Potapov, told Sputnik.

"This diary, written by the priest Afanasy Belyaev, who heard their confessions when they were arrested by the Provisional government in 1917, is important for historic accuracy," Potapov said on Monday. "It can show Americans the spiritual character of Nicholas II and his family."

According to Pompeo's speech, which was delivered at the Heritage Foundation think tank based in Washington, DC, Iran must release American hostages, halt its ballistic missile program, remove its troops from Syria, and end its support for the Houthis in Yemen as well as for Hezbollah, the Islamist political party and militant group based in Lebanon, if the US is to renegotiate the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. The US recently announced its intention to pull out of the historic accord, under which, in general, Iran agreed to cap nuclear enrichment at a low level and allow international inspectors into its nuclear facilities in exchange for sanctions relief.

Hawaii volcano eruption: Has Highway 137 Hawaii been hit? Lava enters sea

MOLTEN lava from Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano has sped towards major routes, threatening to cut off key evacuation roads for coastal residents - but has Highway 137 been hit yet? How far away is the lava flow?

Residents were airlifted to safety from the Puna area as new explosive eruptions caused boiling lava from two huge cracks at Fissure 20 to merge into a fast-flowing river.

One homeowner was seriously injured after being splattered with lava from the fresh eruptions as he sat on his third-floor balcony.

Janet Snyder, a spokesperson for the Office of the Mayor, County of Hawaii, said: "It hit him on the shin and shattered everything there down on his leg,”.

She added lava spatters “can weigh as much as a refrigerator and even small pieces of spatter can kill”.

Haspel Is Not the Problem. The CIA Is the Problem.

As a general rule, when Dick Cheney favors a foreign policy position it’s best to be on the opposite side if you value liberty over war and authoritarianism. The former vice president’s enthusiastic endorsement of not only Gina Haspel as CIA director but of the torture program she oversaw should tell us all we need to know about Haspel.

Saying that Haspel would make a great CIA director, Cheney dismissed concerns over the CIA’s torture program. Asked in a television interview last week about the program, Cheney said, “if it were my call, I’d do it again.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, Dr. Paul, this is precisely what we have become as a country; a country with no concern for human rights, either domestic or foreign; where the quietly corrupt, as is former President Barak Obama, who has been unmasked as having ordered spying on the Trump campaign, gets brilliantly financially rewarded; and where the agendas of the military/industrial complex and the medical/industrial complex must be obeyed, and anyone with peaceful, alternative views will get either literally, or, professionally, assassinated.

I understand this very completely, as that last criminal act, is what happened to my sweetheart Michael, when he asked a very logical question concerning the very strange death of Vincent Foster, during the Clinton years.

You might remember: the image the Clinton White House put out of Foster's body, was as far as humanly possible from what the real damage by this kind of alleged "suicide" would have caused.

New ‘Italy First’ coalition wants to deport 500,000 migrants

On the 18th of May, the Five Star-Movement and the League struck a deal to form a populist government. One of their government’s pledges is to deport half-a-million migrants.

A few days before the deal, EU Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos stated that he wished Italy would “not change its migratory policy”.

The government deal not only changes the migratory policy of Italy, it revolutionises it. The programme calls for the deportation of the 500,000 migrants present in Italy.

“Today, there are around 500,000 illegal migrants in Italy (…) expulsion orders are not enough: those who don’t have the right to stay must return to their home countries”, the document said.

For me, the moving of the US embassy means nothing. It is a symbolic act that does not change reality. If and when peace does come, no one will care about some stupid act of a half-forgotten US president. Inshallah.

So there they were, this bunch of self-important nobodies, Israelis, Americans and those in-between, having their little festival, while rivers of blood were flowing in Gaza. Human beings were killed by the dozen and wounded by the thousand.

The ceremony started as a cynical meeting, which quickly became grotesque, and ended in being sinister. Nero fiddling while Rome was burning.

When the last hug was exchanged and the last compliment paid (especially to the graceful Ivanka), Gaza remained what it was – a huge concentration camp with severely overcrowded hospitals, lacking medicines and food, drinkable water and electricity.

Syrian Army Has Full Control of Metro Damascus After ISIS Ouster

The Syrian Army has issued a statement today declaring victory in the fight over metro Damascus, saying that effective Monday Damascus and all of its surroundings are “completely secure” and under military and government control.

Expelling rebels and jihadists from suburbs of Damascus has been a priority for awhile. The defeat of rebels in Eastern Ghouta was a major step in that direction, but it was only this weekend, with the evacuation of the last few ISIS fighters, that the whole area was secure.

ISIS forces managed to infiltrate the Yarmouk refugee camp and surrounding area, south of Damascus. The refugee camp, which once housed a large number of Palestinians, has been contested repeatedly since the Syrian War began.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congrats to the Russian, Syrian, and Iranian forces which have contributed to making this happen.

But this vile, US/NATO backed war against Al Assad has left the country in utter ruins, and the question of how Syria can get help in rebuilding must be asked, and answered quickly.

South Koreans See John Bolton as an Obstacle to Trump-Kim Summit

While President Trump’s reaction to “hiccups” in diplomacy ahead of the North Korea summit is to threaten Kim, South Korean officials say they see the real problem as John Bolton. MP Chung Dong-young referred to Bolton as one of “several land mines” that are in the way of the summit.

South Korea’s current pro-diplomacy government has a lot of familiar faces to their last such government, which was in power when Bolton was a hawkish ambassador. South Korean analysts saw Bolton’s hawkish stance on North Korea before as a problem, and say he hasn’t changed.

When Bolton’s talk of the “Libya model” in North Korea immediately provoked fury from the North Korean government, US officials didn’t seem to understand why. South Korean officials say the “Libya model” was an obvious red light to North Korea.

Indeed, it’s a blunder to the point where officials suggest that Bolton is deliberately interfering in the peace process, and trying to botch it in doing so.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bolton is one of the most war-centric people around this President, and that is a real problem for any kind of peace to have a chance to happen between the two Koreas.

He will try to do his utmost to scuttle the meeting between Trump and Kim Jung Un, and he, and his cohorts, do have a rather wide assortment of tactics they can deploy in their diplomatic, and military, arsenals, to prevent this from happening.

Pentagon Threatens More Aggressive Stance Toward Iran

Following up on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s bellicose threats toward Iran, Pentagon officials suggested that moving against Iran would require a “whole government solution.” They pointed toward the Pentagon being more aggressive toward Iran in the future.

While officials were not specific about what the Pentagon would or even might do, they condemned Iran’s “malign influence” in the region. Some talked up freedom of navigation operations, which has long been a favored way for the US Navy to pick fights or escalate tensions with rivals.

Purely theoretically, the freedom of navigation exercise is just meant to prove that ships can safely transit certain waters. Though Iran has never impeded anyone’s ships passing around their sphere of influence, the US Navy has favored parking ships along Iran’s maritime borders, and occasionally hugging that border.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What alleged "malign influence" is the Pentagon talking about here, regarding Iran, please?!?

Just because Iranian advisors were not going to allow Syria to go down in flames, courtesy of a US/NATO cabal, supporting rebels in taking control of Damascus' government, and throwing Al Assad out, is this the reason for the Pentagon's ire against it?!?

Someone... has some 'spaining to do, as to the actual, and specific, activities Iran has really done, then honestly document them, if they think for one moment that they can lead the American people to a mindset of wanting war against the Iranians, who have done nothing negative, or wrong, to the people of the US. The people of this country are both war-weary, and war-skeptical, and more wars will be a lose for any candidate who supports more wars, before mid-term elections here in the US.

As ADHD Diagnoses Increased, So Did Calls to Poison Control

A NEW STUDY IS SOUNDING the alarm about misuse of medication for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

There were 156,365 calls to poison control centers for people under 20 who were improperly exposed to ADHD medication from 2000 through 2014, according to the study published in the journal Pediatrics. The number of calls surged between 2000 and 2011 before declining slightly between 2011 and 2014.

Overall, call volume increased by 60 percent over the period, says the study's senior author, Gary Smith.

"As the diagnoses and treatment with medication of ADHD have increased in the U.S., these exposures have also increased, which means we really do need to pay more attention … and for different age groups, come up with different strategies to prevent them," says Smith, director of the Center for Injury Research and Policy at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The following is a reality which needs to be checked out by all parents who love their kids very much:

The Man who Discovered ADHD makes a Startling Deathbed Confession

The article goes on to state:

"“ADHD is a prime example of a fictitious disease.” These were the words of Leon Eisenberg, the “scientific father of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder),” in his last interview he gave before his death at age 87 in 2009.

(While some have described Dr. Eisenberg’s statement as an “exaggeration,” many doctors are coming to the belated conclusion that ADHD is often “over diagnosed” by the use of “fuzzy diagnostic practices.” Harvard psychologist Jerome Kagan, who is one of the world’s leading experts in child development, states:

“Let’s go back 50 years. We have a 7-year-old child who is bored in school and disrupts classes. Back then, he was called lazy. Today, he is said to suffer from ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). . . . Every child who’s not doing well in school is sent to see a pediatrician, and the pediatrician says: “It’s ADHD; here’s Ritalin.” In fact, 90 percent of these 5.4 million kids don’t have an abnormal dopamine metabolism. The problem is, if a drug is available to doctors, they’ll make the corresponding diagnosis.)

Eisenberg made a luxurious living off of his “fictitious disease,” thanks to pharmaceutical sales.

Please remember: Doctors in the US are frequently compensated by drug companies manufacturing drugs, like ADHD drugs, for prescribing them to their patients.

So the next time you're taking Little Johnny to his pediatrician, as his teacher has told you that he has a really hard time focusing and staying still, ask that doc, and look them right in the eye when you ask this, if he or she is getting compensated by the drug company whose prescription he is going to prescribe for your child's alleged ADHD.

Every parent in this country should be asking that question of their own, and their kid's doctor; full disclosure, in both directions, is reasonable here.

Trumpism Folds into Netanyahu-ism, or ‘Neo-Americanism’

The 8 May US Presidential declaration (on exiting JCPOA) requires of us fundamentally to revise our understanding of Trumpism. At the outset to his term of office, Trumpism was widely understood to be based on three key pillars: That the costs incurred by the US in upholding the full panoply of Empire (i.e. policing the American, rules-based, global order) were just too onerous and unfair (especially in the provision of the defence umbrella) - and that others must be coerced into sharing its cost. Secondly, that American jobs had been, as it were, stolen from America, and would have to be recovered through forced changes to the terms of trade. And thirdly, that these changes would be effected, through applying the tactics of the Art of the Deal.

McDonald's workers march on new Chicago HQ for $15 an hour wages

Workers marched to McDonald's new corporate headquarters in downtown Chicago on Monday to protest what they contend is the burger giant's role in institutionalized poverty, especially among minorities.

Hundreds of McDonald's workers from across the country traveled to participate in the protest Monday, one of multiple demonstrations planned across the country, according to Fight for $15, a labor campaign supported by the Service Employees International Union.

"McDonald's, McDonald's, you can't hide, we can see your greedy side," chanted dozens of protesters in the event timed to come ahead of the fast-food chain's annual meeting on Thursday.

If a bouquet is an affront, Putin is a serial offender

Bild’s suggestion that giving flowers to a woman may be a veiled political insult after Vladimir Putin welcomed Angela Merkel with a bouquet has made quite a stir in Russia, with angry denials coming from way up.

The Russian president greeted the German chancellor with a floral present during her visit to Sochi last week. The German tabloid, which is far from being in the camp of Merkel’s supporters, covered the meeting critically, decrying Berlin’s willingness to buy Russian natural gas rather than stand up to Moscow. One piece suggested that the bouquet itself amounted to an affront to Germany, an attempt by Putin to undermine Merkel’s leadership by treating her as a woman.

If Israel were a State 

If Israel were a state (and Jews a people like all other people) it would have deployed policemen at the Gaza border instead of snipers with live ammunition.

If Israel were a state (and Jews a people like all other people) it would invite the indigenous people of Palestine to return to their land.

If Israel were a state (and Jews a people like all other people) it would apologize for making Gaza into the biggest open-air prison known to man.

If Israel were a state (and Jews a people like all other people) it would, by now, live in peace under the sun.

But Israel is a Jewish Ghetto (and Jews are somehow different…)

Why did Facebook ban The Electronic Intifada’s ad for “Killing Gaza”?

Facebook banned an advert paid for by The Electronic Intifada a day after it was approved and was running successfully.

The ban lasted for almost three days before the ad was restored without explanation.

This apparent act of censorship comes as Facebook is deepening its collaboration with Israel lobby groups and a pro-war Washington think tank to impose tighter controls on what people are allowed to see online, especially about Israel’s violations of Palestinian rights.

Palestinian dies after severe beating in Israeli prison

Israel bears full responsibility for the death of Palestinian prisoner Aziz Awisat, Palestinian human rights and prisoner advocacy groups say.

Awisat, 53, was severely beaten by Israeli officers after allegedly pouring hot water on a guard in Beersheba prison on 2 May.

After his health deteriorated, Awisat was taken to a prison clinic in Ramle on 7 May where he had a stroke two days later. He passed away in a hospital near Tel Aviv on Sunday.

Khalid Mahajneh, a lawyer with the Palestinian Prisoners Club, said that the prisoner had acute organ failure and was connected to an artificial respirator upon his transfer to the Tel Aviv hospital.
