Employees may have to once again form new unions and go through the process of seeking MAB’s recognition.

(LONDON) - Salem-News.com We, the undersigned 36 organisations, groups and trade unions are appalled with the Malaysian government’s current attempt to pass a law that will seriously undermine worker and trade union rights of employees in the Malaysian Airline System Berhad (MAS), the operator of Malaysia’s national carrier.

Not only will the consequence of the new law be loss of employment of all employees of MAS and its subsidiaries, but also the end of the existing trade unions and associations representing the employees of MAS.

Children of a Lesser God?

Founder of the Zionist movement, Theodor Herzl and many of his followers were atheists, perhaps using the Bible and God as justification to steal other people’s land.

Who is a Chickenshit? Senior White House Officials say Netanyahu, That`s Who!

Is this the straw that broke the camel’s back?

(LONDON) - Netanyahu By Carlos Latuff It seems, at last, that the intransigence, arrogance, disrespect and disdain that Mr. Netanyahu and most of his cabinet colleagues have shown towards their benefactors in the USA have proved to be too much to bear for the Obama Administration, including Mr. Obama himself.

Senior officials have called Mr. Netanyahu ‘a chickenshit prime minister’, ‘a coward’ and ‘a man more interested in his own political survival than peace.’

Enter the Chameleon

He smiles, nods, speaks and becomes whatever his audience craves. Now don't they feel better.

(LONDON) - Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel. The stage is set, the venue is the UN General Assembly, New York and the audience is in place, awaiting the appearance of the star performer, Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel.

The chameleon came dressed in the colours of the United States of America. After all, he was speaking in New York and he employed local American idioms and colloquialisms to deliver what was without doubt a brilliant exhibition of showmanship in full Technicolor. All that was missing were the violins.

Statistics show that 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime, and 1.3 million women are victims of assault by an intimate partner each year. This is simply intolerable.

Did Israel Offer ISIS $10 Million to Free Steven Sotloff?

Scarcely anyone ought reasonably indulge themselves in feelings of confidence about their own personal security.

(Ein el Helwe Palestinian camp) - Steven Sotloff Though details are not yet fully known to this observer, reliable sources who have contact with DAASH report that the Islamic State rejected frantic Mossad efforts to buy the release of American journalist Steven Joel Sotloff.

This much is credited with a fair amount of certainty. Steven Sotloff, born and raised in Florida, checked into Room 303 of the Hotel Istanbul in the small border town of Kilis in southern Turkey. Three days later while heading to the border to take the Kilis-Aleppos highway south into Syria, Mr. Sotloff and his "fixer" were abducted at a check point manned by unknown jihadists.

John Yoo and The Senate Torture Report

John Choon Yoo, aka John Yoo, authored the Torture Memos used to justify torture of human beings by the Bush Administration.

(SAN FRANCISCO) - John Yoo caricature Professor John Yoo stepped away from his lectern at the UC Berkeley School of Law to send an e-mail to the San Francisco Chronicle criticizing the forthcoming Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) torture report saying that if "torture was used and it didn't work, she [Senator Dianne Feinstein] is flat wrong." Yoo claimed the report failed to maintain "bipartisanship" that "will undermine its conclusions."

I suspect that this is a preemptive attack by Yoo as the release of the Senate torture report will probably place Yoo on the hotseat again. The SSCI Torture report has been approved for public release. However, the SSCI and the CIA are fighting over the CIA's substantial redactions to the torture report summary.
