Israel’s election on Tuesday came down to a battle between a prime minister who promised to annex part (or possibly all) of the West Bank and its several million Palestinians into Israel, but without giving them equal rights to Jews, and a former army general and chief of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) who boasted about how many Palestinians he had killed, or had his army kill, in past invasions into Gaza.

Mourning the Murder of Muslims in New Zealand..and what to do

We at Tikkun and the Network of Spiritual Progressives are in deep mourning for the 49 Muslims killed and at least 20 seriously injured, in a hate-filled terror attack targeting two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch.

Former UN special rapporteur, “US Economic Warfare Is Hurting the Economy and Killing Venezuelans”

US sanctions on Venezuela are illegal and are crimes against humanity under international law. If only this genocide could become a topic of conversation throughout the world, especially in the plundered and militarily attacked or targeted nations of the so-called Third World, Americans would not be able to get away with it.

Venezuela: A Lesson in Western Colonial Democracy

We invade countries. We send drones in to kill civilians.”

Western racism and hypocrisy foaming at the mouth over China’s constitutional changes. China Rising Radio Sinoland 180301

The buck stops with YOU. If you don’t share this, who will?

Above, entitled Be Just – Even to John Chinaman, this is one of thousands of racist political cartoons against the Chinese in the United States, especially with the passage of the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act. It legalized the extermination of tens of thousands of Chinese, who were hunted down like dogs, shot, hung and scalped for state bounty (http://chinarising.puntopress.com/2018/01/06/slavs-and-the-yellow-peril-are-niggers-brutes-and-beasts-in-the-eyes-of-western-empire-china-rising-radio-sinoland/).
