One Nation the U.S. Actually Should Liberate: Hawai`i

Jon Olsen's new book, Liberate Hawai'i: Renouncing and Defying the Continuing Fraudulent U.S. Claim to the sovereignty of Hawai'i, makes a compelling case.

(CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA) - Liberate Hawaii Some nations the United States should probably not liberate -- except perhaps the 175 nations which could be liberated from the presence of U.S. soldiers. But one nation I would make an exception for, and that is the nation of Hawai'i.

Olsen's case, in very condensed summary, looks like this: Hawai'i was an independent nation, recognized as such by the United States and numerous other nations, with treaties in effect between Hawai'i and other nations, including the United States, that have never been terminated.

From Tribalism to Humanism

The Path to Freedom - A journey from the narrowness of egotism to the splendour of Universalism.

(LONDON) - War to peace In his new book “The Wandering Who”, Gilad Atzmon reflects on his transforming journey from an IDF “Israeli”, a racist tribalist, self-ghettoized Zionist, with exclusionist mentality, who was greatly influenced as a child by his “veteran Zionist terrorist” grandfather, into simply a Universalist and Humanist.

A courageous and enthralling journey that began in the most unexpected places, in one of the suburbs of occupied Jerusalem, Al Quds, and by no other tool than a musical instrument, a saxophone!

The Wandering Who is Out This Week

"It is no secret that some very forceful elements have been investing a lot of effort trying to stop the book and its message. So far, they have failed." - Gilad Atzmon

(LONDON) - Salem-News.com A wave of understanding accompanies Gilad Atzmon's new book, 'The Wandering Who' and it is no wonder that his opponents, who support apartheid laws in Israel, are fuming. Truth is a dangerous drug and Gilad overdosed his share of readers with this one.

Gilad is only one of Salem-News.com's writers who doubles as an author, but none have drawn the response that we are seeing with this clever-titled book that rips the lid off of the racism that sets the stage for Israel's very existence.

POSTMODERN IMPERIALISM Geopolitics and the Great Games

Eric Walberg on Post-Modern Imperialism The Great Games.

(LONDON) - The Great Games Though the number of critical voices concerning Israel, Zionism and Jewish power is growing steadily, a clear distinction can be made on the one hand between contributors who operate within the discourse and are politically oriented, and others who transcend themselves above and beyond any given political paradigm.

The former category refers to writers and scholars who operate 'within the box,' accepting the restrictive measures of a given political and intellectual discourse.

Book Review: Coffee with Hezbollah

The satire is harsh, and nobody escapes the treatment, including the author.

(WASHINGTON D.C.) - Amelia Opalinska took when she and Belen were in the town of Meiss al Jabal in south Lebanon with these resistance fighters honoring their fallen comrades in 2006. Here’s a strange and sparkly, jumpy and tightly-packed little book by PULSE’s own Belen Fernandez, in which our heroines (Belen and the photographer Amelia Opalinska) hitch-hike through Lebanon and Syria a few weeks after the war of summer 2006, consuming far more caffeine than is good for them.

Beyond Gonzo, it doesn’t pretend to journalism at all. Instead it recounts a fairly lunatic, fairly random sight-seeing tour towards ‘the dark force’ Hezbollah.

Age of American Unreason: Chapter 1

Those who believe that America and its Constitution are the greatest things in the Galaxy, are living in a world of denial and fantasy.

(CALGARY, Alberta) - Susan Jacoby and her book The Age of American Unreason There is no kind or easy way to state the simple fact that America is a society of unremittingly ignorant people.
