I Was Born in Israel Many Years before I Realized Israel Was Palestine

Israel is not colonialism. Colonialism is a clear exchange between a mother state and a settler state. Israel is a settler state, yet there is no Jewish mother state.

(LONDON) - Gilad Atzmon I was born in Israel and it was many years before I realized that Israel was Palestine. I was relatively patriotic. I was looking forward to serving in the army and then I grasped that there was little truth in the Jewish historical narrative.

I then gathered that I was living on someone else’s land. At the same time I discovered the saxophone. By the age of 30, I left Israel and never went back.

Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Announce Bill Introduced in House of Representatives

"Agent Orange is persistent over time at a high toxicity rate, and it was capable of contaminating individuals who handled equipment that had been exposed." ~Institute of Medicine

(WASHINGTON, DC) - Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans New York Congressman Chris Gibson (NY) reintroduced our bill in the House of Representatives on Friday, Feb 13th, along with 130 original House sponsors. Co-sponsors are continuing to be added to that overwhelming bipartisan support.

Oregon`s Lady Macbeth

In honor of Valentine’s Day, Oregon’s governor lets his scandal-prone fiancé ruin his political career.

(WASHOUGAL, Wash. ) - Cylvia Hayes On the surface, Cylvia Hayes looked like the perfect First Lady of Oregon: neat, brown hair; wide, toothy grin; conservative clothing and a warm demeanor.

She came from made-for-campaign-literature beginnings and had a cause to which she devoted her life. But Hayes also had secrets...

Cuba Uncensored

Answers to some very pointed questions about Cuba

(WASHINGTON, DC) - Cuba This evening, February 9, 2015, a handful of visitors from the land to the north asked an assistant professor of philosophy about his studies and his teaching experiences here in Cuba.

One of our group made the mistake of asking whether this philosopher thought of Fidel as a philosopher. The result was an almost Fidel-length response that had little to do with philosophy and everything to do with criticizing the president.

Kitzhaber 2nd choice?

Keeping your mouth shut isn't always the best answer.

(WASHOUGAL, Wash.) - Kitzhaber Dear Editor:

I could be wrong, but in my opinion and that of most, silence is participation.

As was the Oregonian Newspaper silence about much of the romantic baggage Kitzhaber and his girlfriend were carrying when they supported his successful 4th term election.

How President Obama Could Take On and Defeat the Zionist Lobby

Those in Congress who insist that Iran poses a threat to Israel's existence are recycling Zionist propaganda nonsense.

(LONDON) - President Obama A longer version of my headline would be this: How President Obama could take on and defeat the Zionist lobby and secure for himself the freedom to put America's own best interests first in the Middle East and wider Muslim.

In the course of a prime time address to his fellow Americans, Obama could do it with just one sentence. This one: "To our Jewish citizens I have to say the time has come for you to decide whether you are Americans first or not."
More on that in a moment.

Fully Disclose 9/11 Report

"Omission is the most powerful form of a lie." - George Orwell

(Saint James, MO.) - 911 report rejected Dear Editor:
The real issue we Americans should pay attention to in upcoming weeks is the on-going effort yet again underway in Congress that is being driven by various politicians of both political parties to disclose the redacted 28 pages of the 9/11 Report that still remain classified. At the very least, doing so might provide some form of closure and relief for the families of 9/11 victims.

Further, the full disclosure may possibly open the door for more robust probing into what really happened on 9/11 and why.

Malaysian Airlines (MAS) Employees and Trade Union Rights at Risk by New Law Being Rushed Through

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.
