Why the US Pushes an Illusory Syrian Peace Process by Gareth Porter

The anti-Assad coalition led by the United States continues to stagger toward the supposed objective of beginning peace negotiations between the Syrian government and what has now been blessed as the politically acceptable “opposition”. The first such meeting was scheduled for 1 January, but no one on either side believes for a moment that any such negotiations are going to happen any time in the foreseeable future.

I Support Israel’s National Bill By Gilad Atzmon

Nasser al tatar gaza
Dr. Nasser al-Tatar, the director general of al-Shifa hospital, had been working twenty hours a day since the offensive started on 7 July when I photographed him on 14 July. The previous week, when he took an hour off to go home and break the Ramadan fast with his family, a neighbor came running with a warning that the doctor’s home could be bombed at any moment. “I prayed, ran out with my family to the street and watched my house be destroyed, then I came back to work,” he said, standing on the ruins of what used to be his home and private clinic.
