AN OPEN LETTER TO THE DES MOINES JEWISH COMMUNITY

Tim Wise | In recent days, Mark Finkelstein of the Des Moines Jewish Federation has
sought to smear my reputation as an antiracist activist, writer and
lecturer by implying that I am anti-Semitic due to my views on Israel and
Zionism as a political philosophy. more...  3 Comments

Still Jews only

Jonathan Cook | This is the bottom line for a Jewish state, just as it was for a white apartheid South Africa: if we are to survive, then we must be able to do whatever it takes to keep ourselves in power, even if it means systematically violating the human rights of all those we rule over and who do not belong to our group.

Pinochet is dead! It is time to kill the system that spawned him!

Fred Weston | The fact that the death of Pinochet on Sunday sparked off celebrations in Chile and around the world should surprise no one. He was a hated figure, a living symbol of the real face of the bourgeoisie.

In "normal" times the capitalists prefer to govern through "democratic" parliamentary means, so long as their fundamental interests are guaranteed. But the capitalist system cannot always guarantee that its interests can be defended through parliamentary means. History is full of examples where the bourgeoisie has preferred to do away with the niceties of "democracy"... Hitler, Mussolini, Franco, Suharto... the list is endless. more...  0 Comments

Mythic Figures Spooking Dubya

William Hughes | President George W. Bush, the quintessential warmonger, is on the defensive! If you look close enough, you can see the fear in his eyes. Since 2005, Cindy Sheehan, an “Earth Mother,” has been challenging him to a face-to-face meeting. The cowardly Bush has declined. Meanwhile, other splendid activists, like the “Hero/Patriot” from the mythic past, are demanding the impeachment by the U.S. Congress of both Bush and V. P. Dick Cheney. more...  0 Comments

SF Anarchist Bookfair decides to compete with anti-war anniversary again in 2007

Headscratcher | Obviously they could have chosen another weekend. Why did they not? To foment more sectarianism amongst Bay Area progressives/radicals? To take another jab as ANSWER? To stand against anti-war activities in general? Only the bookfair committee can tell us why they think competing with last year's anti-war events was a good enough idea to deserve a reprise. more...  16 Comments
