Two Human Rights Defenders From Occupied Palestine Navigate the Politics of Capitol Hill Jabarin filed his submission at the Hague -- the home of the ICC -- on November 23, 2015. Trapped in Gaza, where travel is rendered nearly impossible by the ongoing Israeli siege, Sourani held a simultaneous press conference in the rubble of homes destroyed by the Israeli army.

Sanders Gets it Mostly Right on Gaza, but Cheerleaders for Israeli Brutality Attack Him Anyway In an interview with the New York Daily News, a tabloid owned by ultra-Zionist multi-billionaire Mort Zuckerman, Sen. Bernie Sanders held forth on Israel's 2014 assault on the Gaza Strip. "My understanding is that a whole lot of apartment houses were leveled. Hospitals, I think, were bombed. So yeah, I do believe and I don't think I'm alone in believing that Israel's force was more indiscriminate than it should have been."

Watch: Israeli Gov't Calls for "Civil Elimination" of Left-Wing Activists and Roseanne Barr Goes on a Rampage The Stop BDS conference featured Roseanne Barr as its keynote speaker. As Richard Silverstein recently reported for AlterNet, Barr has equated followers of Islam with Nazis, called for dropping a nuclear bomb on the University of California-Davis to retaliate for its students' support for BDS, and has referred to supporters of Palestinian human rights as "Nazis' helpers."

The Israel Lobby's Totalitarian Agenda: Smash Free Speech and Criminalize Resistance No target is too small. With guidance from Jerusalem, where the most right-wing government in Israeli history is mounting an all-out assault on internal dissent, the lobby has embraced a totalitarian agenda that aims for nothing less than the criminalization of all political opposition.

Gideon Levy: Americans "Are Supporting the First Signs of Fascism in Israel" American liberals should know that they are supporting the first signs of fascism in Israel. And America is behind it. And America is supporting it. And America keeps one blind eye to it. And America keeps financing it. This should be known and should be recognized by any American, mainly the liberals, who care where their taxpayer money goes, and so much of it.

How Western Militarists Are Playing Into the Hands of ISIS Billions of dollars have been spent and hundreds of thousands of lives lost in the global war on terror. At every step of the way, Western governments played directly into the hands of Islamic extremists, falling for their ploys and fueling their ambitions.

"I Would Like to See Gaza Drown in the Sea": Remembering the True Yitzhak Rabin, 20 Years After His Assassination Rabin's aim, and that of his successors, was not co-existence with the Palestinians, but rather a form of hard separation that guarded Israel's exclusively Jewish character. It was Rabin's campaign vow in 1992 to "keep Gaza out of Tel Aviv" -- to essentially wall off the Gaza Strip -- that helped him secure the premiership. Months later, Rabin declared, "I would like to see Gaza drown in the sea."

Painting Palestinians as Nazis, Netanyahu Incites a Wave of Vigilante Violence Netanyahu sent the message that Palestinians lurking behind concrete walls and under siege in ghettos were not an occupied, dispossessed people, but a new breed of Nazis hell-bent on Jewish extermination. Netanyahu's comments about the Mufti were much more than a hysterical lie; they were an invitation to act out a blood-soaked fantasy of righteous revenge.

How Pro-Israel Fanatics Have Teamed up with Right-Wing Operatives to Crush Free Speech on Campus The inauguration of the Campus Maccabees offers a massive cash infusion to the expansion of the movement of which Canary Mission appears to be a pilot project. With unprecedented resources, these hardline elements are expanding their campaign beyond fighting BDS in order to castigate liberal pro-Israel groups that supported Obama's Iran deal such as J Street.

Why Are Dianne Feinstein and Janet Napolitano Backing a McCarthyite Push Against Palestine Activists? With a majority of schools in the University of California (UC) system and the UC Student Association voting to divest from companies profiting from Israel's occupation, the pro-Israel lobby is pushing for a clamp-down on Palestine solidarity activity at UC schools.

10 Places AIPAC Would Never Show Members of Congress on Their Upcoming Propaganda Trip Due to the US-backed Israeli-Egyptian siege of Gaza, members of Congress will not be able to meet any of the 1.8 million people living in the ruins of this stateless coastal enclave, where Israel killed over 2,200 people in 51 days last year, including 550 children. Nor will they see the Jews-only settlements and Palestinian ghettoes that make up the Occupied Territories.

Why Scrapping the Confederate Flag Is a Threat to a Huge Swath of the Right-Wing Movement Following Roof's massacre at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, leading Republican politicians are capitulating to widespread pressure to condemn the display of the Confederate flag in state capitols across the Deep South. Yet neo-Confederacy maintains wide appeal across the South and deep influence within the broader conservative movement.

Could the Possible Sale of Huffington Post to Right-Wing Company Affect Its Editorial Line? Though the Huffington Post would not offer a comment on its possible sale to Springer, several editors were previously unaware of the German media conglomerate's hard-right editorial line. The question now is whether they will publicly oppose a deal that threatens to reverse the progressive direction of one of America's most popular online news outlets.

You Will Be Surprised Who the Outside Agitators Really Are in Baltimore Even after the National Guard vacates the streets of Baltimore and the state of emergency is lifted, vast swaths of the city will remain under occupation. Rather than return to a deadly status quo, the city could start answering the crisis by enacting residential requirements that force police officers to live in the neighborhoods they patrol.

In the twilight of the Obama era, Dyson has become a political prisoner trapped within the stultifying confines set by the president, his party, and network executives with little patience for dissent. He has linked his reputation to Obama's legacy to an inextricable degree, prompting him to defend them both against their most relentless critic.

Paranoid Benjamin Netanyahu Prepares For His Last Stand Netanyahu once described former Obama advisers Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod as "self-hating Jews." In the final days of his re-election campaign, he howled against an international conspiracy to overthrow him, with Barack Hussein Obama as its puppet-master. (A robo-call to voters in Israel warned them to vote for Netanyahu against "Hussein Obama.")

How the Israel Lobby Protected Ukrainian Neo-Nazis Staffers from the ADL's Washington office and the Simon Wiesenthal Center rejected the Conyers amendment on the grounds that right-wing Ukrainian parties like Svoboda with documented records of racist extremism had "moderated their rhetoric." The Wiesenthal Center pointed to meetings between far-right political leaders in Ukraine and the Israeli embassy as evidence that groups like Svoboda had shed their extremism.

Samantha Power, Obama's Atrocity Enabler Power has yet to reckon with the consequences of her role in enabling some of the worst atrocities ever committed against one of the world's longest-suffering populations.

Int'l Community Promises to Rebuild Gaza ... with Sweat Shops to Exploit Palestinian Workers Even as he conceded that aid to Gaza was a "band-aid fix," Kerry offered no political remedies beyond the framework plan for two states that the Israeli government resoundingly rejected earlier this year. Thus his appearance in Cairo and the entire spectacle of the donor conference added another layer of window dressing on the brutal status quo.

Who broke the ceasefire? Obama blames Hamas against the evidence Since violence escalated in mid-July, the Obama administration has demonstrated a disturbing pattern of legitimizing suspect Israeli claims about Hamas's malevolence and bad faith. In each case, the administration provided political cover for disproportionate Israeli violence, deepening the damage to civilian life in the West Bank and Gaza.

Is the U.S. Backing Neo-Nazis in Ukraine? As the Euromaidan protests in the Ukrainian capitol of Kiev culminated this week, displays of fascism and neo-Nazi extremism became too glaring to ignore. Since demonstrators filled the downtown square to battle Ukrainian riot police and demand the ouster of the corruption-stained, pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovich, it has been filled with far-right streetfighting men pledging to defend their country's ethnic purity.

Perhaps, like Groucho Marx, they hope we will believe them instead of our own two lying eyes.

But in the end, they were not immune to the violence they incited.

Giulio Meotti: Serial Plagiarist or Common Hasbarist? Meotti is so bereft of originality that he even plagiarizes himself: He pasted a long section from a February 24, 2012 column about how "music can be a platform for anti-Semitism" into a piece he published two months later about anti-Semites in Hollywood working to destroy Israel. It takes little more than cutting and pasting press releases from Israel advocacy groups to succeed in the world of neoconservatism.

Israel's bogus case for bombing Gaza obscures political motives Netanyahu was forced to mute his demand for Obama to agree to "red lines" on Iran's nuclear program that would trigger a US attack, descending instead into an incoherent, demagogic rant about a "nuclear duck" and the Holocaust.
