The Grand masters of Moral Inversion: another case history

TW | The following full-page advertisement appeared on page 42 of the May 14, 1947 edition of the New York Post. It was penned by prominent playwright Ben Hecht, co-chairman of the American League for a Free Palestine. This ad led to a formal complaint from the British government to the Truman administration, objecting to shameless U.S. public campaigns to support certain Jewish criminal undergrounds in Palestine. To British eyes, the line “We are out to raise millions for you” was particularly incriminating. Truman took action on these complaints, whereupon the criminals began attacking US targets as well! more...  0 Comments

Nonviolent Resistance is not Illegal: Human Rights Watch Should Retract Statement on Gaza

International Solidarity Movement | The International Solidarity Movement (ISM) applauds the people of Jabalya for their courageous and effective use of nonviolent resistance, and we express our full solidarity with their actions, which are positive initiatives in the struggle to defend Palestinian rights. We note with disappointment that Human Rights Watch (HRW) chose to condemn these actions, suggesting that they could constitute a "war crime" in a November 22, 2006 press release entitled, “OPT: Civilians Must Not Be Used to Shield Homes Against Military Attacks.” HRW’s press release is factually, legally, and morally flawed.

Campaigns for Freedom: Adama Bah and Dame Dieng

compiled by nyc imcista | Help for Adama: Some of you have already heard the story of Adama Bah. For those of you who haven't, Adama - a Muslim teenager and former student of mine at the Harlem Children's Zone - was detained by the FBI in March of 2005. Without any explanation they accused her of being an "imminent threat" and appeared ready to hold her indefinitely. After a widespread public protest, however, the government agreed to release her. Without going into a detailed history of the case, I believe she has been unfairly targeted and in the process has seen her family split apart.

Campaign to free Dame Dieng: Dame Dieng is 21 and has been arrested without any valid explanation, the Senegalese police invented the same old insult and threat known for centuries stuff when they invaded the political opponent, Idrissa Seck, headquarters where Dame Dieng happened to be, he had been recruited by this contradictor to the authoritarian Wade regime after having worked for a newspaper’s website and proved there his incredible gifts for computer matters more...  0 Comments

Situation in Venezuela is again critical

Alan Woods | "December 3, 2006 will remain in history painted red." (Hugo Chávez)

Marx pointed out that the revolution needs the whip of the counterrevolution. After the big opposition rally on Saturday, the supporters of Hugo Chávez responded massively last Sunday with the biggest demonstration since the start of the Bolivarian Revolution. It was possibly the biggest demonstration in the history of Venezuela. The left wing website Aporrea referred to "the red tsunami". Up to two million Chavistas, in a sea of red, poured onto the streets and filled the Avenida Bolívar - and the whole of Caracas ‑ where Chávez was to deliver his final speech of the election campaign.

Why The Pope Is a Dope

A.K. Gupta | While the corporate media continue to deny that the Pope attacked Islam in his speech two months, even a cursory reading shows that he was launching an unambiguous attack on Islam. He may be trying to make nice in Turkey now, but his speech was aimed at showing that Islam was a rejection of Christianity. Additionally, few have noticed that Benedict was arguing for the superiority of Europe as God's chosen domain. more...  7 Comments
