Palestinian general strike after Yassin killed:

A Palestinian general strike in the West Bank has been declared from mosque loudspeakers after Israel assassinated Hamas leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin in an air attack.

Terror Analyst: Yassin Killing 'A Bad Mistake':

„The effect of this escalation would be that militants will have reasons to continue their war against Israel and its supporters, and the symbolism of Sheikh Yassin‚s Œmartyrdom‚ would inspire many more suicide bombers,‰ he said.

Israeli reporters with dual citizenship banned from Gaza :

The Israeli government on Monday banned correspondents holding dual Israeli and foreign citizenship from entering Gaza to cover the aftermath of the assassination of Hamas spiritual leader Sheik Ahmed Yassin.

In case you missed it:

Human Dust:

Israel's deep-pockets sugar daddy, arguably a co-conspirator to destroy the Palestinian presence under the name of the War-Against-Terror, and packed with neo-conservative Zionist Middle East advisors… I mean, can this Bible-thumping Bush administration be serious? Sadly, they probably are.


John Pilger on terror in Palestine:

No front pages in the west mourn victims of the enduring bloodbath in occupied Palestine, the equivalent of the Madrid horror week after week, month after month

If Palestinians Were Killed By Suicide Bombings:

"Is that the problem? Palestinians are not being killed by suicide bombings and therefore their deaths are not going to warrant reactions of horror? .."

Seeking Answers from Israel:

YEAR AGO this week, my daughter Rachel Corrie was killed in Rafah in the Gaza Strip. She was run over by an Israeli bulldozer manned by two soldiers. The Israeli government exonerated the soldiers, closed the case, and refuses to release to the US government the complete report on the military police investigation into Rachel's killing.

Shame on Sharon:

Rachel Corrie's death remains unjustified before law or world opinion. It can never be justified

UK: MPs criticise Israel over treatment of Palestinians:

Two boys, aged 14 and 15, died in a missile attack on Rafah, close to Gaza's border with Egypt, in another day of violence which began when an Israeli helicopter fired two missiles overnight into a group of Palestinians, killing a gunman and a 45-year-old bystander.

Two Occupations :

Some in the antiwar movement have been reluctant to take up demands around the occupation of Palestinian lands, fearing it will alienate some of those who opposed the invasion of Iraq or who might today be won to opposing its occupation.

By any means necessary:

It is not simply Israel's current hardline government that is to blame for the subjugation of Palestinians, but Zionism itself

Israel invades Gaza City:

Israeli occupation troops have invaded the occupied Gaza Strip, demolishing a college building and injuring two Palestinian policemen.

In case you missed it:

Rabbi Goldstein gives a historic overview of Zionism:

The Muslims people basically got involved in the fight against zionism when it started effecting them on a political bases which is 1917 for the Palestinians or afterwards for some of the other Arab countries, We [religious Jews] were in this fight from the 1890 roughly… As soon as it was founded [zionism], it was condemned – Jews came out and said this is atheistic, this is idol worship…" was begun in 2003 as a way to commemorate the memory of those Palestinians who have been, and continue to be depopulated, dispossessed, humiliated, tortured, and murdered in the name of political Zionism and its quest to create a Jewish state in the lands between the Mediterranean and the Jordan River.


Israeli soldiers kill three Palestinians:

The deaths bring to 3833 the number of peopled killed since the September 2000 outbreak of the Palestinian intifada, or uprising, including 2879 Palestinians and 886 Israelis.

Victory of brutality:

A new species of officer is achieving greatness in the Israel Defense Forces. These people did most of their service as occupation officers, and their excellence is a function of the degree of violence and brutality they exercise against the Palestinians.

Two states, too little, too late:

In attempting to take it all by force, successive Israeli governments killed the two-state solution, leaving only the principled, just, democratic and counter-Zionist one-state solution left.

The Difference Between Judaism and Zionism:

For over 60 years I have fought Zionism. For those who have been in this fight for only the last ten or twenty years, what I have to say may be surprising or even shocking. Nevertheless these matters must be stated clearly and openly, because unless the disease of Zionism is diagnosed accurately, it cannot be cured.


A grotesque choice:

Israel's repression of the Palestinian people is fuelling a resurgence of anti-semitism,3604,1166637,00.html

Zionists Do Not Represent Jews:

This site was created to provide historical documentation refuting the misconception that all Jewry supports Zionism (the existence of the so-called "State of Israel") for website visitors seeking information on the history of Zionism, its historical and current day impact on the Jewish community worldwide and the danger it presents to us all.

"You Will Not Live on This Land for Long"


The tale of two very different armies

Palestinians are suffering at the hands of heavily armed, highly trained Israelis


Israel: Between Bush and Netanyahu:

Netanyahu is demanding Sharon bring an impressive "compensation package" from the Americans.

Why seeking justice for the Palestinians is the Jewish cause:

I was recently asked a question I've been asked many times before, mostly by fellow Jews: Why do I spend so much time seeking justice for the Palestinians instead of directing my efforts and passions toward fighting for some noble "Jewish" cause.

Sharon says U.S. should also disarm Iran, Libya and Syria:

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said yesterday that Iran, Libya and Syria should be stripped of weapons of mass destruction after Iraq. "These are irresponsible states, which must be disarmed of weapons mass destruction, and a successful American move in Iraq as a model will make that easier to achieve," Sharon said to a visiting delegation of American congressmen.
