Why Palestinians Are Fleeing Gaza Concentration Camp
About half the Occupied Palestinians are children and three quarters are women and children. Any person who knowingly ignores, denies, minimizes, excuses, obfuscates, supports, advocates or is other wise complicit in the gross abuses of woman and children has crossed the line between decent humanity and proto-Nazi barbarism. Peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity

Coming To Terms With The Iraq War
Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war than we know about peace, more about killing that we know about living.” All considered, it is high time to learn again about the ways to live

In America They Came First For Dennis Kucinich
Yes, they have “come for” Dennis Kucinich and, with his withdrawal from the presidential race, that eloquent voice is removed officially from a presidential debate from which de facto it had been removed by an active corporate media and their allies in the sleeping public. And now, there is the very likely prospect that the same combination of forces may deprive him of his congressional seat and from being heard in that forum as well. It is precisely among that legion of “sleepers” that any vestiges of independent thinking will be roused from their slumbers as the fascist powers come for “them.”
