Stanley W. Rogouski | The Democrats weren’t interested in denouncing anti-Semitism but in keeping the American people in line. Maliki’s sin was not in being an anti-Semite (which he may or may not be) but to break the framing that “moderate” Arab politicians are supposed to stay inside. more... 0 Comments

Islamic Community Net | CAIR said the charge of state terrorism was based on statements by Israeli officials that they intend to make the civilian population of Lebanon suffer in order to put pressure on Hezbollah. Israel's chief of staff threatened to "turn back the clock in Lebanon by 20 years." Israeli Justice Minister Haim Ramon declared last week that, "Everyone in southern Lebanon is a terrorist and is connected to Hezbollah." Israel has in the past reserved the right to kill anyone it considers a "terrorist" or terrorist supporter. more... 0 Comments

Electronic Intifada | Today, when Israeli war planes attacked Qana, at least 51 civilians, including at least 22 children, were killed. It is the deadliest single strike since Israel unleashed its war on Lebanon. Israel, the US and several European governments are in no rush to reach a ceasefire. Dozens of other villages in the region around the southern port city of Tyre were also bombarded for two hours overnight with fire from the Israeli navy, air force and artillery. Israeli planes also tore up the Masnaa border crossing into Syria, leading to the closure of the main Damascus-Beirut route. more... 0 Comments
Stephen Lendman | "If this scenario is possible, why then would US, UK, Israeli, and other Western leaders who see what's going on, be willing to take the risk? Ahmed states what a growing number of knowledgeable observers now believe - that the Western, mainly US, so-called neoliberal imperial freewheeling "free-market" model is failing and may collapse short of a desperate "Hail Mary" military solution to try to save it even though the chance for success at best would be uncertain and in some views unlikely. And if it fails, the result may be an unimaginable social, political and economic calamity. " more... 0 Comments
Ad Hoc Coalition 4 Justice in the Middle East | 1500 members of the New York community, horrified at the senseless killing of Palestinians and Lebanese by the Israeli military, marched across the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan today to demand an end to the violence.

Mike Head | Openly backed and armed by the United States, Israel is carrying out mounting atrocities in Lebanon in an attempt to overcome unexpectedly fierce resistance from the Hezbollah movement. With its 17-day aerial bombardment having failed to wipe out Hezbollah, or weaken its support among the population, Israel has intensified its onslaught.
Juan Chingo | The US wants breathe life, at least provisionally, into an option that the Israeli army, frightened by the high costs and fatal consequences of the 1982 invasion of Lebanon, has not been willing to consider. This is why, at the same time as we redouble our efforts to defeat Israel's military offensive, we must make clear our complete opposition to the deployment of any military force, whether under the command of the UN or NATO, on Lebanese soil. more... 0 Comments

cleaves | The people are once again faced with a very real opportunity to act and change the status quo. The USA has abandoned its traditional role of peacekeeper in the Middle East. Two clear prerogatives present themselves in the face of ongoing hostilities, a people’s movement or another nation filling the vacuum left by the U.S. (which has tragically become an involved party in the conflict). How many times must the opportunity for Peace go begging? more... 1 Comments

Trotskyist Faction for the Fourth Internation | However, the element that can significantly change the relationship of forces and lay waste to the greatest plans of the most powerful military organization, which is the Israeli army, is the fact that a further intensification of its offensive in Lebanon could spark the mobilization of the masses of the Middle East, who for weeks have watched the bombings, the imprisonment and the collective punishment to which the Palestinian masses in Gaza have been subjected, which has fed the hatred and the spirit of vengeance against the Zionist state. Also, although still in a very minor form, the Israeli attacks are beginning to awaken the pacifist movement in Israel, a problem which could grow if the costs of war continue to mount, not only on the arm (mostly formed by conscripted soldiers), but also on the civilian population, if the Israeli government can't rapidly put a halt to the missile attacks on its civilian population centers. more... 0 Comments
