Torturing Palestinians
From MER in January 1997: Torture of Palestinians is not only routine and systematic, in it actually sanctioned by the Israeli legal system that has been twisted to serve Israeli policies. Going back to the Shinbet scandal of the early 1980's, even more sadistic forms of torture have given way to the kinds of 'legalized' torture methods outlined in this important article from one of the few independent and courageous media sources in Israel, The Alternative Information Center (AIC). Among the reasons the Israelis get away with such systematic torture of Palestinians is that hardly anyone is willing to protest. The so-called "Palestinian Authority" practices similar and even worse torture techniques, as do nearly all of the Arab governments in the region -- so they are hardly in a position to protest. And the "liberal" American Jewish community has been morally bankrupt about such issues for so long now that to speak up at this point would be to condemn themselves for permitting, and even encouraging in many cases, such Nazi-like behavior by the Israelis for decades.

Colin Powell and The Mother of All Hoaxes
Last Friday evening Colin Powell's Chief of Staff in the State Department at the time Powell gave his historic speech at the U.N. Security Council came clean. It was that much-heralded speech of course that prepared the way for the launching of the disastrous Iraqi invasion/occupation. Now, Friday evening on the NOW! program on Public Broadcasting, Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, who was right there helping prepare Powell's every move, damns it all as a 'historic hoax'.

    'We'll Nuke You!' - New York Post, 11 Dec 2002

      Reader's Comments
    Over the last year your site has been invaluable in helping me build up my knowledge of the Middle East. I am teaching myself as much as I can about the history and politics of the area, starting with Iraq and Palestine, so that I can give my support to enterprises and movements which will have immediate and long-term benefits for the people living under oppressive conditions in both places. -- Harriet Griffin, University of Oxford

      Quotes from History
    'Bush wants to divert attention from his domestic problems. It's a classic tactic. It's one that Hitler used.' (referring to America's proposed war against Iraq) -- Germany's Justice Minister, Herta Daeubler-Gmelin, Schwaebisches Tagblatt, Sep. 18, 2002
