Like most evil bloodsucking imperialist Zionists I want to return the occupied territories (sans Jerusalem which was supposed to be international territory before the 1948 Jewish majority population was meant to vote to be annexed by either country) to Jordan and Egypt. It's against terror we fight, not for land. So they can have the land, in exchange for peace. That always was Israel's position. It would be nice to keep Jewish "settlements" in the "West-Bank", especially those that were "...

Kurdish commentators went ballistic over Turkey's behaviour towards Israel: Mr. Erdogan cunningly and with malice endeavored to portray himself and his country as guardians for the Palestinian liberation cause and as holy angels whom heaven has sent to work on lifting the sea blockade imposed by Israel on the Gaza strip. In his hysterical anti-Israel rampage he did not only viciously attack Israel and defend the Palestinians, but he also boldly and stupidly humiliated and insulted the Arab...

Even the Guardian sees it: Turkey's prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, said today that Kurdish militants would "drown in their own blood" as he led political and army chiefs in paying his respects to troops killed in a clash with the rebels during fighting on Saturday. Eleven soldiers and 12 Kurdistan Workers' party (PKK) guerrillas died in the south-eastern province of Hakkari, near the Iraq border. It's interesting because only two weeks ago Recep Erdogan was a defender of human right...

One good answer I found was this: The world does not care for Darfur because it is away from the prying eyes of the Media. That's one reason. But it's not the only reason. And there is two reasons for the one reason. 1.1. The laws of physics dictate that journalists can only report from places safe enough for journalists to escape alive. While the horrible, horrible Gaza and Iraq are safe, some places in the world are not. 1.2. Journalists prefer living in luxury hotels and bla...

Dr Sabah A. Salih writes: Islamism, which is markedly different from the way most practicing Muslims in Kurdistan understand the faith, as something spiritual rather than political, has never been a friend of the Kurds. Despite its noisy claims of universality and rejection of national boundaries, Islamism is sectarian through and through. In fact, its actions and programs are intended to put non-Arabs under the political and cultural hegemony of Arabs. Historically, Islamism has been just an...

Consider this: Hamas, not Israel, refuses to allow donated food and medicine in. If it’s “collective punishment” when Israel restricts certain items, what should we call it when Hamas refuses all of the items? Few seem to have given it any thought. So far I haven’t found a single person indignant about the Israeli blockade who has said or written a word about Hamas refusing to allow donated goods into the territory. Even those who actually donated and delivered the items ...

This is essentially a translation and summary of this German Wikipedia article: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parviz_Nikkhah I wrote it after it turned out that East-Germany was behind several murders of West-German left-wing activists, for which the other activists (but not the families of the murdered) had long blamed the "fascist" West-German state. What the German left did to the Shah and the people of Iran cannot easily be forgiven. And the middle-east would look very different toda...

I have the solution: Let the UN take over the Gaza blockade. But with a twist. Israel and Egypt can then close or open their borders with Gaza and Israel won't have to deliver 15000 tons of goods per week any more. But here's the twist. Since the UN totally failed (and some say didn't even try) to stop weapons deliveries to Hizbullah in southern Lebanon, this time the UN will have an incentive to do its job. For every rocket or other missile that hits Israeli soil, the U...

Turns out ten people died this morning in the Middle-East. No big deal, right? Deaths happen in the Middle-East all the time, right? Just think of the Darfurians, who are being slaughtered by the tens of thousands or the remaining Jews in Yemen whose houses were regularly firebombed until they escaped last year. So what's different this time? Why would I even mention ten deaths? Well, turns out today people died. Not blacks, not Jews, but people. I expect this tragedy to be well-cove...

Qatar proposed to carry out work in Gaza and re-opening of diplomatic relations with Israel in exchange for Israel recognising Qatar's importance as a peace broker in the middle-east: Israel rejected a Qatari proposal by the Persian Gulf emirate to carry out rehabilitation work in the Gaza Strip in exchange for renewing diplomatic relations with Israel after Egypt made it clear that it would find such a deal "difficult to digest". According to Egyptian sources, Israel provided Egyptian Pre...

The Palestinian diaspora in Australia is facing an unexpected catastrophe. Normally, May 15, Israel's Independence Day, is the most important day of their year for celebrating their victimhood: the catastrophe, as they see it, of the founding of Israel. But, this year, visiting fresh from the streets of Gaza, Ramallah and Jerusalem is Khaled Abu Toameh, an Israeli Arab Muslim journalist, who declares: "I'd rather be a second-class citizen in Israel than a first-class citizen in any Arab count...

President Shimon Peres took a jab Monday at European states that recently criticized Israel, saying that unlike their conduct in World War II, Israel has never asked that American soldiers fight on its behalf.   The president stressed that no other country shares a similar history with Israel, which has been forced to go to war seven times in its 62-year history. "Some people in the West criticize Israel. Yet when many of them fought, they asked for America's help," he said.   P...

1. Nationhood and Jerusalem - Did you know that Israel became a nation in 1312 B.C.E., two thousand years before the rise of Islam. 2. Did you know that Arab refugees in Israel began identifying themselves as part of a Palestinian people in 1967, two decades after the establishment of the modern State of Israel. 3. Did you know that since the Jewish conquest in 1272 B.C.E. the Jews have had dominion over the land for one thousand years with a continuous presence in the land for the past 3,...

My friend Mohamed Yahya )he is the former roommate of a friend of mine) is a refugee from Darfur and Executive Director of Damanga. He wrote this article: As the victims and survivors of Darfur genocide, we are not surprised by the results of the Sudanese rigged, flawed elections that have been announced earlier this week, to declare a victory for Omar Al-Bashir, as a re-elected president to Sudan. But we are extremely shocked, and terribly dismayed for the support of some Internation...
