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”.

GUEST BLOG: Lois Griffiths – Toxic Trio, All Mates … Cartoon by Latuff

By   /  December 3, 2018  /  Guest Blogs + Sponsored Posts, Most Recent Blogs  /  7 Comments

This ‘toxic trio’ cartoon, my labelling, should warn us about what a dangerous time we live in. The US, Israeli and Saudi regimes are close allies. This relationship began long before Trump. It’s not just those 3. The cartoon should refer to Brazil under  its new president   Bolsonaro. It should refer to the  UK , a major exporter of weapons to Saudi Arabia.

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’. Nothing could be further from the reality of Israel’s determined, relentless, day-to-day (and nightly) persecution of Gaza.

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.

I hope you are  aware of Mike Treen’s ordeal. He, along with other passengers and crew on the Freedom Flotilla boat Al Awda,  was hijacked in international waters and forced to go to Israel.

Right-wing Australia would like nothing more than to close its borders to these damned annoying Kiwis. Unfortunately, that would involve tearing up the Australian-New Zealand Closer Economic Relationship and toppling New Zealand into a full-scale economic and social crisis.

No one should be surprised at the recent Israeli Parliament’s passing of the “Basic Law – Israel as The Nation State of the Jewish People”. The law is but one more step in the incremental realisation of the ultimate ambition of Israel’s founding European ideology, Zionism.
