Apartheid Israel's Defense Minister Joins the 'Attack Iran' Chorus

John Brown | In today's pro-apartheid Israeli daily Ha'aretz, the defense minister, Shaul Mofaz, joined the chorus-line of true believers advocating a military attack on Iran.

With this, Mofaz adds his name to the growing list of Zionists who believe the best way for the state of Israel to 'handle' Iran is by killing Iranians. This racist obsession with killing Muslims is by no means unique. Since the partition of Palestine and formation of the colonial settler state in 1947, the content and strategy of Mofaz's remarks echo those of virtually every Israeli statesman and woman. more...  0 Comments

Brooklyn activist faces life in prison on 16-count arson indictment; Bail Denied, Extradiction to Eugene, Ore. Pending

Jed Brandt | UPDATE: Bail has been denied in the case of Daniel McGowan, and each of the other arrestees around the country. McGowan will be held pending his extradition to Eugene, Ore. and his arraignment.

According to spectators at Friday's hearing, prosecutors read through posts on the NYC Indymedia newswire (including this article) and mentioned them as part of the bail hearing. They made mention of other electronic communications on Thursday, and undoubtedly their attentions are ranging far and wide.

Please refrain from speculation and innuendo on Indymedia posts related to this case.
