Hundreds if not thousands of Palestinian Bedouins have been stripped of their Israeli citizenship in the Negev Desert, a report says as the regime pushes ahead with its policy of ethnic cleansing in the occupied territories.

According to the report by Israeli daily Haaretz, the Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel (Adalah) has called on Tel Aviv to cancel the revocation process in the face of the increasing number of complaints filed by Bedouins.

The measure has been in effect since at least 2010, according to the Adalah’s appeal submitted to Israeli Interior Minister Arie Deri and Attorney General Avichai Mendelblit.

US Has Killed More Than 20 Million People in 37 “Victim Nations” Since World War II

Friends of Syria


First published in November 2015

By James A. Lucas

After the catastrophic attacks of September 11 2001 monumental sorrow and a feeling of desperate and understandable anger began to permeate the American psyche. A few people at that time attempted to promote a balanced perspective by pointing out that the United States had also been responsible for causing those same feelings in people in other nations, but they produced hardly a ripple. Although Americans understand in the abstract the wisdom of people around the world empathizing with the suffering of one another, such a reminder of wrongs committed by our nation got little hearing and was soon overshadowed by an accelerated “war on terrorism.”

But we must continue our efforts to develop understanding and compassion in the world. Hopefully, this article will assist in doing that by addressing the question “How many September 11ths has the United States caused…

Email to Emily Thornberry: BBC Panorama crew ensconced with al-Qaeda linked jihadi group

Fabrication in BBC Panorama 'Saving Syria’s Children'

From: Robert Stuart

Subject: BBC Panorama team embedded with jihadi group co-founded by senior bin Laden courier

Dear Emily

I have been researching the BBC Panorama programme Saving Syria’s Children since it was broadcast in September 2013.

It was recently noted that a vehicle in the convoy transporting BBC reporter Ian Pannell and cameraman Darren Conway bore the logo of Salafist jihadi group Ahrar al-Sham. I have written about the matter, including images and full references, here.

In December 2013 The Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) reported that a “leading figure” in Ahrar al-Sham (its co-founder according to Stanford University) was Abu Khalid al-Suri, real name Mohamed Bahaiah. The FDD report observes that Spanish authorities had identified Bahaiah as Osama bin Laden’s “chief courier between Europe and Afghanistan” and “think he may have delivered surveillance tapes of the World Trade Center and other American landmarks to al Qaeda’s senior…

In Gaza

By Eva Bartlett

It’s daily hard to believe it can get worse, but daily it does.

Last week, I saw what seemed to be the white phosphorus clouds doctors have written about, condemned. From a tall Gaza city building, the panoramic view showed a spreading stream of poison, on eastern Gaza.

The chemical burns deeply, to the bone, experts say. It is considered illegal warfare, not to be used in civilian areas. Yet the accounts grow of its use: heavy use in the Khosar region, east of Khan Younis, and in the northwest of Gaza, and in eastern Jabaliya, Sheik Zayid, Sheik Rajleen, Zaitoun… Everywhere. The UN headquarters housing hundreds of fleeing Palestinians which was bombed on January 15 was hit with white phosphorus.

“Five days ago, in Jabaliya, I saw an abnormal material: white dust, spread out in spinning circles which spread the dust further. From inside there…
