Benjamin Netanyahu's handling of the Gaza blockade flotilla crisis has further isolated Israel in the world and strained relations with Washington. Can a tough nationalist emerge as a statesman?
Suddenly it has become acceptable to again spin the same anti Semitic doggerel that infested human discourse prior to the defeat of Hitler. Yes it is been actively promulgated by the Islamic types, but it is the appearance of these threads among the

Amid the uproar over White House reporter Helen Thomas’ remarks that the Israelis should “get the hell out of there” and return to the nations is a much obfuscated fact: In her salty way, she is only repeating how God feels about Israel’s biblically
On June 6th, 2010, peace activists including members of Bay Area Women in Black and Jewish Voice for Peace held a silent vigil. Their silent, dignified march was greeted by members of StandWithUs/SF Voice for Israel and other affiliates who called th
The Hamas government in Gaza is apparently not interested in receiving the goods that were carried by the 'humanitarian' Turkey-sponsored flotilla Israel intercepted.

We are being played by both “sides.” This is a classic case of the Hegelian Dialectic – problem, reaction, solution.
Some have decried MIT professor Noam Chomsky for being denied entry to Israel claiming it is due to his views on the Israel-Palestine conflict. A check of the facts shows he was not and some surprising news about Chomsky himself.

Once again the US government has permitted the Israeli state to murder good people known for their moral conscience. The Israeli state has declared that anyone with a moral conscience is an enemy of Israel, and every American president...

The White House declined Tuesday to specifically condemn Israel for its raid on a humanitarian flotilla, but said it showed Middle East peace moves were now needed more than ever.
I have a question for Ernest Hancock. Why is it that every time there is an article about Israel(and yes I say Israel not USrael) there is always at least one person saying we should pull out of Iraq and Afghanistan so that we may invade IsraeRead Letter
