Israeli soldiers yesterday killed at least fifteen Palestinians and wounded many more as they suppressed protests held at border posts facing Syria, Lebanon, and Gaza to mark the 63rd anniversary of the founding of the Zionist state.
This latest massacre of Palestinian civilians inflicted by the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) again demonstrates the Israeli government’s brazenly unlawful operations. The situation also exposes the Obama administration’s “humanitarian” pretext for the bombardment of Libya.
NATO’s war is supposedly necessary to protect unarmed civilians from the possibility of being killed by government forces—but Washington raises no objections to the murderous activities of its closest ally in the Middle East, which it arms and finances to the tune of billions of dollars each year.
i don't watch democracy now anymore. i have no use for it. so i had to hunt down tony kushner's interview from last week.
tony kushner's a bad playwright who got the pulitzer for the good intentioned but in dire need of an editor angels in america. and there he was whining that he almost didn't get an honor from the city university of new york. it was so unfair, he insisted, and really, he wanted you to know, like mccarthyism.
he said that with a straight face while repeatedly playing the 'i am not now nor have i ever been a friend of norman's.' he trashed norman to save his own ass. i find kushner disgusting. to the extreme.
