J-Street, Andy Levin, and Liberal Zionism 

Looking at it from Palestine, representative Andy Levine’s claims to be “pro-Palestinian,” are even more absurd than they are when seeing them from the U.S.

Jerusalem, Palestine - The liberal Zionist voice, which many people mistake for actual support for justice in Palestine, is toxic and dangerous and probably serves Israel and its brutal, racist agenda more than any other ideology. The most glaring example for this is of course J-Street and its followers. The following two statements are from the

New Polls Show Almost No One Trusts Our Media Anymore

Gone are the days when the CIA secretly infiltrated American newsrooms, craftily tricking people into believing U.S. government propaganda was the real news. Nowadays, they never keep it a secret that they run the media.

The Most Censored News with Lee Camp hosted by comedian/ writer/ raconteur/ provocateur/ saboteur Lee Camp is a twice-weekly look at the news behind the news. Camp both brings to light stories that are (intentionally) ignored by the corporate media and digs deeper when the mainstream media only reports on the surface-layer reality. Having been a

Chris Hedges: We Are Not the First Civilization to Collapse, but We Will Probably Be the Last

The archeological remains of past civilizations, including those of the prehistoric Cahokia temple mound complex in Illinois, are sobering reminders of our fate.

CAHOKIA MOUNDS, Illinois (Scheerpost) -  I am standing atop a 100-foot-high temple mound, the largest known earthwork in the Americas built by prehistoric peoples.

By now, many will be familiar with Project MKULTRA. For decades, the CIA conducted highly unethical experiments on humans in order to perfect brainwashing, mind control and torture techniques. Perhaps the program's most notorious aspect was the administration of high doses of psychoactive drugs to targets, particularly LSD. These substances were

Without Palestine, There is No Arab Unity: Why Normalization with Israel Will Fail

American politicians, who are constantly angling for quick political victories on behalf of Israel in the Middle East, do not understand or simply do not care that marginalizing Palestine and incorporating Israel into the Arab body politic is not simply unethical but also a major destabilizing factor in an already unstable region.

It seemed all but a done deal: Israel is finally managing to bend the Arabs to its will, and Palestine is becoming a marginal issue that no longer defines Israel's relations with Arab countries. Indeed, normalization with Israel is afoot, and the Arabs, so it seems, have been finally tamed. Not so fast. Many events continue to demonstrate the

“Under a Virtual Siege” – Activists Demand PayPal Offer its Services to Palestinians

“You’ve got this two-pronged effort to both isolate the Palestinians and to normalize and weave the settlers into the international communities, a community of nations. And the problem is that organizations or companies like PayPal, … unwittingly, are absolutely party to that.” — Lara Friedman

In June, actor Mark Ruffalo joined the campaign calling on online payments platform PayPal to offer its services to Palestinians living in the occupied West Bank and Gaza. "Paypal [sic] operates in Israel's illegal settlements—but is refusing to provide service to Palestinians in Gaza and West Bank, in direct violation of UN guidelines," the
