Subservience to Zionism’s fanatical desire to suppress freedom of speech lies behind CNN’s decision to sack one of its most popular commentators. On 28 November, Marc Lamont Hill addressed the United Nations in support of justice for the Palestinian people. On the following day, the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, CNN announced “Marc Lamont Hill is no longer under contract with CNN”.

News media reporting on Gaza ignores daily terror

By   /  November 17, 2018  /  Leslie Bravery, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  4 Comments

This week, the news media appeared to notice Gaza again, reporting a deadly Israeli incursion and air strikes, as well as retaliatory missile-firings by Palestinian Resistance fighters. In the public mind, the news would have created an impression of violence ‘once more’ erupting in Gaza and disturbing a period of ‘relative calm’.

BDS blacklist reveals growing opposition to Zionist and neo-Nazi refugee-haters

By   /  November 3, 2018  /  Leslie Bravery, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  7 Comments

Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu has described the Palestinian founders of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS) as “classical antisemites in modern garb”. Yet Arabic is the most widely-spoken of all the semitic languages. Zionism’s choice of the term ‘antisemitic’ in preference to the implied, yet far more direct expression, ‘anti-Jewish’, is strategic. The intention is to deny, or at least obfuscate, every aspect of Palestinian culture and history.

Zionism’s attempt at new world order

By   /  September 11, 2018  /  Leslie Bravery, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  3 Comments

What should have been big news here, had the culprit been any state other than Israel, whose brutal acts of piracy in international waters, along with the tasering and throwing into prison of a New Zealand national, besides his being robbed of private property, hardly attracted any NZ news media interest.

While Israel and the US would have us believe that the Gaza massacre was simply an unavoidable act of self-defence on Israel’s part, the world knows otherwise, which is why the United States blocked the adoption of a Security Council statement that would have called for an independent probe into the massacre. There is simply too much for them to hide.
