Justin Gardner – Monsanto Exposed As Source For White Phosphorus Used In Gaza Massacre

Monsanto has earned the dubious reputation of being one of the most hated companies in the world. Its grand proclamations of working to feed the world and help the environment have been exposed for a sham.

The Fawning Candidate: Hillary Clinton and Apartheid Israel By Robert Fantina

Democratic crown-princess Hillary Clinton is no stranger to the unholy altar of Israeli worship. She has often expressed her deep, almost romantic love for that country.

The human rights crisis is about domination, not perception by Neve Gordon and Nicola Perugini

Palestine Faces Grave Climate Threat, But Lacks Voice At UN Talks – Ed King

Few conflicts generate as much heat and rage as the ongoing tussle between Israel and Palestine. Peace appears as far away as ever, after the recent collapse of US-led talks, and the 2014 Gaza war. The two nations face an added, unseen and growing threat – that could heighten tensions yet further. Rising global temperatures are likely to make drought …

‘Indiscriminate’ Killing in Gaza Was Top-Down War Plan, say Israeli Veterans – Sarah Lazare

The “massive and unprecedented harm” inflicted on the population of Gaza during last summer’s 50-day Israeli military assault stemmed from the top of the chain of command, which gave orders to shoot indiscriminately at civilians, according to the anonymous testimony of more than 60 officers and soldiers who took part in “Operation Protective Edge.” The Israeli group Breaking the Silence, an …
