Israel Occupies ANZAC History And Honour

 The solemnity of the 100th commemoration of the Anzac victory of courage and dash in the 1917 Battle of Beersheba was desecrated by the opportunistic propaganda of PM Netanyahu, by the Australian PM Turnbull’s  grovelling echo of Israel’s outrageous lies and by the business pragmatism of Israeli patsy, the Aotearoa/New Zealand, Governor-General Reddy. For months, while Australian and New Zealand[Read More…]

Shattered Glass Houses of Zionist Pawns

Shattered Glass Houses of Zionist Pawns

“People who live in glass houses should not throw stones.” Proverb Western governments that have servilely abrogated to a foreign power, i.e. Israel, their responsibilities to uphold international law can no longer claim national sovereignty nor a moral high-ground. These states have become bystanders to Israeli war crimes and genocide and are corrupt mouthpieces parroting Zionist platitudes that undermine Palestinian[Read More…]

How Do They Sleep At Night? Part I & II

Part 1* “The problem with Israel thus is not a policy here or there, but its overall strategy that has not changed since 1948 and is as cruel, and far more effective, than some of the ethnic cleansers now in action elsewhere in the  Middle East and in the world as a whole.” Ilan Pappé and  Samer Jaber The nature[Read More…]

Review: The Ministry of Utmost Happiness; India’s Summa Injustica

  Having just bought the novel, I read Sukamaran’s reluctantly negative review of Arundhati Roy’s, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness and discovered for myself that I had not entered “The Ministry of Utmost Boredom” but a world intensely crammed, like India itself, with the vicissitudes and minutae of the human condition ranging from rapture to agony, from goodness and evil[Read More…]

1967 Censored  Voices Against National Evil

  “What unites all types of evil, which are created in the different worlds of national and social interest groups, is that the “decent citizens” of all the worlds always require a semblance of self-evidence, normality, ideologies, ethos, the legitimization of a majority of some kind, laws of nature and man-made laws, and above all a sense of morality and[Read More…]

Open Letter To The Prime Minister Of New Zealand On UN Res. 2234’s Flaw: The Two-State Solution

Will you dare do serious independent research and thinking on the matter of Palestine? Will you withdraw from the pact supporting a fake two state solution? Will you challenge Israeli impunity to commit war crimes and crimes against humanity? Will you replace the zionist mouthpiece McCully with a foreign minister prepared to put international law above US and Israel interests?

Palestine’s Achilles Heel: The Begging Bowl

Palestine’s Achilles Heel: The Begging Bowl
