-Dennis Skinner (MP-Labour/1970-present)
What a difference a day makes, or in the case of UK parliamentary political theatre applied to the ever-changing definition of... Read More
Brexit: Theresa May Goes Greek!
Regularly presidents, prime ministers, congresspersons and parliamentarians worldwide negate the democratic will of their nation’s voters by refusing to support legitimate election results. Strangely, their treasonous actions continue without serious reprisal or punishment by the voter. This emboldens them. The reality of votes cast and “democracy” past does not does bode well for the... Read More
Correctly Defining Modern Zionism.
There is much that the civilized world does not understand about modern Zionism. Today, the definitions of being Jewish, Israeli or Zionist are, to most people, analogous. They are not.
Indoctrinated into submitting to this incorrect, singular and collective definition, solely due to Zionism's false claim of a direct religious link to Judaism, hence the objective, critical world cowers at... Read More
The Irony of Election Fraud:Staggering Election Loss for the West; Huge Win for Lebanon!!
In what can only be considered a staggering loss for Western influence in Lebanon, Hizbullah doubled its seats in the new Lebanese parliament as a result of the first election in nine years…and its own, far too obvious, attempt to influence the result.
The desperation of Saad Hariri’s Western backers had been shown by his image shadowing the many candidate’s campaign poster images whom... Read More
Who Is Buying Votes At the Lebanon Election?
Beirut, Lebanon: Sat, May 5, 2018- On this lovely morning here on the coast of the Mediterranean there is not a cloud in the sky. In less than twenty-four hours voting will begin. However, on this day before the election, a howling wind is blowing from the south making the thousands of posters, banners and building-sized placards that feature the faces of the scores of potential Lebanese...

Lebanon: The Most Important Election in the World!
In a matter of mere hours, a new election will take place. Unlike seemingly all other national elections worldwide, this election will bring real “hope” to a needlessly impoverished country. This election will see real “change” come to a country far too long restricted and controlled by external foreign powers. For this is an election that is steeped in real democracy; not the US-inspired... Read More
How Yulia and Sergei Skripal (and their cat) Saved the World!
Ah, the "Sorrows of Empire." Its lies these days so easily exposed. Yet, too often ignored.
This past Saturday morning, April 14, 2018, the world released a collective sigh of relief after a week of collective, anguished hand-wringing at the too-likely possibility of our own utter annihilation. US President, Donald J. Trump, a man of massive ego, reportedly small hands and apparently... Read More
The Good Friday Massacre: We Are All Palestinians, Now!
Eighteen more Palestinians were unapologetically murdered this past "Good Friday" by the Israeli military. They were unarmed. They were on their own land. They were desperate. They screamed their desperation as they marched. Then, they shouted their daily reality of personal horrors too close to Israel's attention. So, they were killed.
These innocents were shot like fish in a barrel: No... Read More
The Lebanon / Israel Border: Reasons for Peace… Excuses for War!
“No pictures!” growls a burley Lebanese army captain, looking me deliberately in the eyes from not three feet away across his Major's desk, while pointing directly at my Nikon. “No pictures!” he repeats, now staring at my translator. Since we are both seated in his office deep within the heavily armed perimeter of the army's southern command, scores of heavily armed soldiers all around... Read More
Hizbullah Today: Of Power, Money, and… the People.
With the last shot of the 2006 war fired and the IDF moving back into Israel, Lebanon began to heal its wounds. At the same time, Hizbullah, that had so successfully turned back the tides of war, began to rebuild- this time in new ways.
Using the respect it had gained by fighting for all of Lebanon, while the Lebanese army looked on from safe havens to the north, Hizbullah began the... Read More
Hizbullah: “You Don’t See Them…They See You!”
“This is not good!” cautions a new Lebanese friend in a stern tone of warning, clutching this reporters arm for emphasis. “This, where you are going.. it is their neighbourhood... Hizbullah's neighbourhood. They control this completely!”
Protesting that this quest is well-intentioned, no secret and no threat, this friend provides probably the most important council, and most accurate... Read More
Beirut Lebanon: “You’re Not in Turkey Anymore!”
“ We have seen war… too much war. We desire peace. To have peace we must live together as one people. The new government says so. We support our government.”
