CommonDreams allows essays which endorse LIHOP (let it happen on purpose) - which we appreciate - however, appears to close the door to a MIHOP (made it happen on purpose) essay which seeks to answer the claims against it. The essay is neither extremist nor without evidence, but it remains unpublished at CommonDreams. Now they are asking for our help with a contribution . . .
An editorial in the Washington Post refutes the popular "tail wags the dog" theory -- which holds that Israel calls the shots in the US-Israeli strategic partnership.
a daly dream in lebanon wich make me crazy .... any way some words to signifie my sadness and revolt
Connecticut's incumbent Senator is losing in what many see as a referendum on the war.
the 6th of august is the anniversary of a day that changed the world in a really big
way. an invention made by one of the world's most brilliant geniuses, albert
einstein, was used as a weapon of mass destruction, as the first atomic bomb was
dropped on the unsuspecting citizenry of the city of hiroshima, japan. einstein
himself was opposed to the use of 'atom-splitting' as warfare, he tried to stand up
to the development of the nuclear bomb....but he was unable to prevent the
government scientists who were determined to turn his discovery into a tool of
No democracy or religion is going to vote in rights inferior
to the supreme nazi zionist enemy. A "Jewish State" is a
State where all GODLY people are treated equally with respect
and honor. As according to Hillel. That is not the practiced
tyrannies of the zionist Israeli liar, therefore Israel is not
a Jewish State. John has spoken in our own image, while
Israel continues to victimize the innocent unjustly.
it need's to be pronounced correctly

A powerful indictment of commercial nuclear power and why its use must end.
Lebanon is not business as usual. This is not just about Israel repressing its neighbors by expanding its boarders—this is not 1982. For that matter, nor is this Vietnam, or the countless other 'skirmishes' the U.S. has been involved in over the last century. The ante has been raised.
Starting with Afghanistan, the current war in Lebanon can be counted as the third aggressively-waged war led by the United States— since Israel can not act unilaterally over such a large issue, and American diplomacy has shown the world who is actually pulling the strings.
Eleven months ago, agents of the fascist state (Sandy Police Officer Bergin, Clackamas County Deputy Willard) took it upon themselves to terminate the life of a terribly injured and burned naked and unarmed man, simply to avoid getting his blood (or hanging skin) upon their clean uniforms.
A brief look at federal government hiring practices

George II was born stupid and he is getting dumber.
Part I, "In Tribute to Fidel Castro", lists some of his extraordinary, truly astonishing achievments. Part II asks, "How can We best Honor Him?", and answers with an Action Plan designed to defeat the Corporation-Government-corporate Mass Media axis tha threatens all of us with an international Fascist strait-jacket.
The problem with being a naked whore, is that you must strip down to get the job done. It is not possible to remain dressed as a nun at the same time. They may have taught you religion, but no one taught you wisdom, or you would know these things.
If the Lebanon war were to escalate into a broader conflict involving Syria, Turkish ground troops could be deployed under the terms of the Israeli-Turkish military alliance. It is worth mentioning that prime ministers Recep Erdogan and Ariel Sharon in a 2005 meeting in Tel Aviv decided to set up a "Hotline for the exchange of intelligence" as part of their evolving military alliance. What this suggests is that Turkey is a potential partner in the ongoing war on Lebanon.
Tony Blair and Condoleeza Rice have recently made statements that suggest a view that is, essentially, genocidal in nature. In so doing, they have stripped away their saccrine masks of democracy and apple pie, exposing themselves for the lizards they are.
Is Al Qaeda just a smoke and mirrors neo-conservative/Israeli funded boogeyman?
Having destroyed it once, public transit, like health care and education, is a project that US capitalism is incapable of providing its citizens.
Like Katrina, California's deaths during the recent heatwave were not due to natural causes but the free market.
After Qana Slaughter, Israel and Bush Administration Widen War in Lebanon ~ Interview with Ian Williams, U.N. correspondent with the Nation magazine, conducted by Scott Harris
The 9/11 Commission was derelict in its duties. What we needed from them was a thorough investigation into the events of September 11th. Inexcusably, five years later, we still do.
Hezbollah unquestionably is the world's toughest guerrilla army in this sweltering summer of 2006, sure to become a lot hotter before the fall's cooling Mediterranean breezes again course through the ruined cedars of Baalbek, Tyre, Beirut and the Bekaa Valley.
There is a grave danger that Anarchism may be dealt with simplistically, the way we deal with most radical "isms" today -- as a fixed body of theory and practice that so often reduces Socialism to the textual works of Marx and Engels and their acolytes. I do not mean to deny the generic meaning of terms like "Socialism. " There are many types of Socialisms ranging from the utopian to the Leninist, from the ethical to the scientific. I simply wish to stake out the same claim for Anarchism. We must always remember that there are also many forms of Anarchism, notably anarcho-syndicalism, anarcho-individualism, anarcho-collectivism, anarcho-communism, and, amusingly enough, anarcho-Bolshevism if I read the history of the Spanish Anarchist movement correctly. These Anarchist theories and movements have been burdened by all the intramural conflicts we encounter between Socialists, albeit in a less bloody and lethal form.
A second look at the Azerbaijan oil resources and the BTC pipeline as the root cause of Israel's overreaction to two kidnapped soldiers.
there is no light at the end of the tunnel in iraq!
forget timetables for withdrawal- cut and run now (jog, trot, crawl, swim, if necessary)
the generals and politicans have abandoned the rank and file soldiers in iraq to their fate. brother and sister soldiers- the ball is in your court- get the troop transports ready
Kevin Zeese, an Independent candidate for U.S. Senate from Maryland, is shaking up the Establishment. Despite the "unmatched power" the Israel Lobby exerts over our foreign policy, Zeese is challenging Rep. Ben Cardin to speak out about Israel's "terror military policy" in Occupied Gaza and Lebanon. Cardin, who is also running for the U.S. Senate in MD, submitted a two sentence reply to Zeese. The people of Maryland deserve better!

Bush Making More Enemies in the Middle East
"No More Oil Wars-- Clean Energy Now!" This popular sentiment must find expression in government policy, and it is our job this fall to make every candidate running for Congress understand that this is what our people want. We should be circulating the VotersForPeace Pledge which declares that those signing "will not vote for or support any candidate for Congress or President who does not make a speedy end to the war in Iraq, and preventing any future war of aggression, a public position in his or her campaign." We must make visible this popular desire for peace, a rapid transition to clean energy and justice.
This article deals with the way oregon has set up the stand up scooter laws to keep would be stand-up scooter riders OFF the streets...OR MOVING SLOWER THAN A SICK DOG. EVEN the mature; intelligent and safe riders. Like me.
Wal-Mart gets unionized in CHINA!
A 9/11 Truth video, drawing parallels to the movie "V for Vendetta".
This article discusses an example of American mainstream media bias towards Israel that occurred during a discussion of the Qana massacre on CNN's Paula Zahn program, and how she got burned when the Israeli Defense Force retracted its statement that Hezbollah had fired Katyusha from an area near the bombed apartment building, in spite of the fact that a day earlier it had disseminated a surveillance video that purported to show a Hezbollah battery firing rockets from this Qana neighborhood on the day the building was bombed.
"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." -- Dr.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Beating kids stops crying. What a statement, eh? You would think beating children would make them cry. But if the beatings are severe enough, they make children NOT cry. We see this in concentration camps, in war, in child protection institutions and foster care...I would assume that mental state of *not crying when in fear* is called "trauma." Many survivors of severe child abuse are just now learning to cry as adults...the lost tears of their childhood.
As a result of the Israeli massacre of 56 civilians, mostly children, in the village of Qana, in Lebanon, a protest action was held in front of the State Department in Washington, D.C. on Monday, 07/31/06. The activists were there to protest the massacre and to demand an immediate ceasefire. Noura Erakat said, "Israel needs to be held accountable for its murders." Four of the demonstrators were arrested in an act of civil disobedience.
meaningless words while children are savaged
how the us and israel subvert un resolutions
Things are coming down so fast these days it's hard to keep up. Now's the time to start paying close attention to everything that's going on and not get distracted. What's really going on here?
I walked past a news stand this morning, to see that the front page of the Oregonian is smattered with the innocent blood being poured out over Lebanon. In the photograph, a man is walking through rubble, an expression of intense despair on his face, and a dead child in his arms. A child.
As long as the State of Oregon has to guarantee land speculators a return on their investment via Ballot Measure 37, shut your fucking mouth about PERS unless you're willing to live up to the agreement made to state workers.
This Government Has to by by any means. They are killing people and the planet and anything we do at this point is an act of survival / an act of self defense that should be defensable in court. Bush and his hired killers seized the government illegally through well documented voting fraud and are dousing us with aerosol crimes from the air, increasing global pollution through removing protective legislation, killing black voters by blowing up levees and drowning them, state sponsored terrorism as in 911, depopulating entire parts of the planet with depleted uranium weapons, stealing our food via genetic engineering, giving our money to the rich. We need a General Strike, community money, the barter system, remove ourselves from the Federal Reserve and "direct" action. Nobel Laureate's are talking of Killing Bush, Professor's in 911 truth are advising us to arm. Where is the uprising, It has to begin now or we will perish??!!
An impromptu children's protest developed today at the intersection of Broadway and Yamhill. They seemed very effective at making the less friendly and apathetic people in cars to THINK about the evil being perpetrated by the US and Israel.
Working people and activists in the US have a special duty as "our" government is the main supporter of Israel. No matter what atrocities Israel commits, the flow of high-tech US weapons continues. Republican and Democrats alike cheer on Israeli aggression.
Good Job Portland !
Israel's free gift of over 20 BILLION in high-tech weaponry from GWB since 2001
To date, no MAJOR actions of protests have occurred within the United States against Israel's attacks on Lebanon and Gaza.
Meanwhile, humans are being bombed daily and by news estimates, 30 percent of them are children.
Would it not be nice to have everyday accounts from people on the ground in Lebanon and Hezballah. Where do you get your news? T.V.? You would not believe what is really happening.
The flooding potential of Cascadia is not only caused by sea levels backing up rivers and streams, it will be caused by a warming and melting of the permafrost. Permafrost will release vast amounts of water into our above and below ground hydrology. There will be no place untouched by these changes, no high ground, are we prepared?
the tragic songs are already available for those preparing reports about
lebanon......no new writing needs to be done, the old lyrics continue to apply.
just pick up a record of lebanese singer fairouz from 20 years ago, put it on the
phonograph, and you will hear the words describing, in sorrowful, tragic tones, what
is happening again today. even the towns and villages where the massacres occurred
back then as israeli forces invaded, led by the 'fearless' general ariel sharon, who
had no problem wiping out villages full of civilians for the sake of the 'security
of israel'......are the same villages being wiped out today, over and over and over
and over again.
piles of bodies.....children, parents, grandparents.......the images are not new,
for the people of lebanon......1978, 1982, 1996, 2000....and now, 2006......
Beirut is burning, hundreds of Lebanese die, hundreds of thousands lose all they ever owned and become refugees, and all the world is doing is rescuing the "foreign passport" residents of what was just two weeks ago "the Paris of the Middle East". Lebanon must die now, because "Israel has the right to defend itself", so goes the U.S. mantra, used to block any international attempt to impose a cease fire.
U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) is a politician that regularly sucks up to the powerful Israel Lobby. Fortunately, she has an opponent in this year's primary, Jonathan Tasini, who is calling her on her shameless behavior. In Baltimore, Mayor Martin O'Malley, who wants to be governor of Maryland, is following in Clinton's footsteps. When the Israel Lobby called a rally, on 07/25/06, to boost support for Israel, O'Malley showed up to do its bidding.
