How Media Obscure US/Saudi Responsibility for Killing Yemeni Civilians

Who Are the Arabs?

by George W. Robnett  |  Appendix A from the book Conquest Through Immigration: How Zionism Turned Palestine into a Jewish State  From Arabian Desert to Revolt Against Turks America is a long way from the Arab lands of the Middle East. Americans, in general, know very little about the Arab people. The Arab image, for reasons well known to many, has not been handled too favorably by the American press. To understand the message in this book, it is important to have at least an elementary grasp of Arabic history, and to help in that purpose the following quick sketch is … Continue reading Who Are the Arabs?

MALLOCH: Europa, Eurabia and the Last man

Wikimedia Commons by TED MALLOCH Europe is full of ‘Last men’ (and perhaps women, I suppose we are now forced to say, given the incessant demand for political correctness). Why is this so and who will come to dwell in these territories we have hitherto called — home? We are not talking about some imaginary seven kingdoms, as in the legendary but fictional television series, Game of Thrones, either. The point of contention is about a real place, with real peoples, and real nations that have existed for centuries on end, perhaps thousands of years—called Europa. Trends in immigration suggest what can only be termed, a self-imposed European death … Continue reading MALLOCH: Europa, Eurabia and the Last man

On the ground, however, the truth is no longer something that can be ignored by even the finest of American soldiers who are in the awkward position of having to train foreign fighters who are obviously coordinating with our supposed enemies, ISIS and other factions … Continue reading VETERAN GREEN BERET AND SPECIAL OPS SOLDIERS ADMIT U.S. TRAINS OUR ENEMIES IN SYRIA

Genocide In Mosul

  image edited by Web Investigator By Stephen Lendman 3-30-17 America’s rage for global dominance is responsible for raping and destroying Mosul – the same pattern as in all US wars of aggression, civilians harmed most, massacred in cold blood. At her weekly press briefing, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said humanitarian crisis conditions in Mosul “soared to an unprecedented degree.” “It’s time to ring alarm bells.” Hundreds of thousands of civilians trapped in the city with scant food, virtually no medical care and other essentials to life. “Experts warn mass famine will be unavoidable if the operation…lasts” much … Continue reading Genocide In Mosul

There Are No Terrorists? Counterterrorism = Supporting Terrorism? Western Governments Are Supporting Terrorist Organizations Which They are Allegedly Combating

By Prof Michel Chossudovsky The Western media in chorus is accusing the Syrian government and its allies including Russia and Iran of “crimes against humanity” for having liberated Aleppo from the clutch of Al Qaeda terrorists. “Putin and Assad could face justice for war crimes in Syria” according to the Washington Post.  In the media coverage of  Aleppo, the Al Qaeda affiliated terrorists are casually described as opposition “rebels” waging a “revolution” against the government of Bashar al Assad, who is portrayed as a “dictator”.  The media propaganda campaign has gone into high gear. The words “Al Qaeda”, “Al Nusra” or “terrorists” are simply not … Continue reading There Are No Terrorists?
