On February 7, The Times headlined "Pro-Palestinian Speakers at Brooklyn College Attract Protests Outside." 

It discussed BDS issues. It said the movement's "goal is to pressure Israel to restore disputed territories and grant equal rights to Palestinians."

BDS activists want occupation ended. They want Palestinians treated like Jews. Palestine is illegally occupied territory. What's indisputable the Times denies.

It's clear knowing which side it supports. Jews alone have rights. Palestinians don't count. The Times is a propaganda organ for power. It supports wrong over right. Policy is longstanding.

Congress opposes unity. It's beholden to Israel and its Lobby. On February 5, members of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa met. 

Chairwoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen reflects the worst of right-wing extremism. She endorses imperial wars, police state laws, corporate empowerment, and Israel's worst crimes. She's unabashedly opposed to Palestinian self-determination, unity and peace.

Hearings were held on "Fatah-Hamas Reconciliation: Threatening Peace Prospects." Israel lobbyists alone were invited. Palestinians and supporters were excluded. They had no say.

David Makovsky represented the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP). It's a pro-Israeli front group. It has no legitimacy whatever. Makovsky heads WINEP's Project on the Middle East Peace Process.

WINEP's Matthew Levitt attended. He heads its Stein Program on Counterterrorism and Intelligence.

The American Enterprise Institute exceeds WINEP's extremism. It's hardline, hawkish, neoliberal, and pro-Israeli. It wields enormous clout in Washington. 

Michael Rubin attended. He's a former Pentagon official. His research focuses on Middle East issues. Iran, Arab Politics, the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan and Turkey have special interest. 

He's writing a history of US relations with "rogue regimes." Hopefully he'll begin with his own. 

It's by far the worst in world history. It's responsible for countless tens of millions of deaths. It murders hundreds more daily. 

It's the American way. It's to further unchallenged dominance. Body counts don't matter. Power alone counts.

Israel's point of view alone was heard. One-sided propaganda was featured. Lies substituted for truth and full disclosure. Hamas was vilified.

It was falsely accused of secret terror cells. Kidnappings plots were cited. Conducting them is "to bargain for the release of prisoners," was claimed. Accusations were bald-faced lies.
