Are You Strong Enough to Unplug for 24 Hours?

The Arab intellectual is resting, not dead

Whenever a new poem by Mahmoud Darwish was published in al-Quds newspaper, I rushed over to Abu Aymen’s newsstand that was located in the refugee camp’s main square. It was a crowded and dusty place where grimy taxis waited for passengers, surrounded by fish and vegetable venders. Darwish’s poetry was too cryptic for us teenagers at a refugee camp in Gaza …

“Collective Psychopathology” And US Police State Methods

In February 2015, The Guardian published a couple of new stories about the connection between the Chicago police department “black site” at Homan Square and the Guantanamo prison where terror suspects have been kept as political prisoners without ever been charged. Neither the national media in the US nor the Chicago media organizations, including African-American, have pursued this story. Even …

Hey Apocalyptic Christians — Here’s How the World as We Know It Will Probably End

High profile anti-religionists like Bill Maher and Richard Dawkins are altogether candid in their disrespect for Christians, and the faith we follow. No doubt Maher and Dawkins hold even less regard for that evangelical subset who believes we are living in the “end times”— a disregard shared by countless other atheists and agnostics. The truth is, we apocalyptically minded Christians …

The Largest Medical Conspiracy Ever

The largest medical conspiracy is not the one that causes physical disease to hundreds, thousands or millions of people, but the one that is set in motion to control the minds of people. For a long time, the psychotropic industry has not only made billions of dollars a year through the sale of pharmaceutical products used to “treat” mental patients, …

“Gardasil [Vaccine] Will Become the Greatest Medical Scandal of All Time”—Former Merck Physician

Here is what former Merck physician Dr. Bernard Dalbergue actually said [2] about Gardasil, Merck’s HPV vaccine: I predict that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all time because at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine, technical and scientific feat that it may be, has absolutely no effect on cervical cancer and that all …

Israel

The Israeli Elephant in the US Congress

It’s astonishing that in the breathless run-up to Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu’s appearance before a joint session of the U.S. Congress to warn of a nuclear-armed Iran, no one—politicians, editorial writers, media pundits—point out that there already is a nuclear power in the Middle East—Netanyahu’s Israel.
