I have been an independent, progressive journalist for about a decade now, after having worked in both the US and Canadian corporate media for 15 years. I became an activist while researching a screenplay in which I attempted to examine the main factors underlying the Madness of the world in which we live.

I enjoyed the veritable Renaissance of unhindered web activism and organization, and watched as the alternative media proved its mettle during the run-up to the invasion of Iraq, while too much of the mainstream media was busy self-destructing in service to the US State Department.

I was active and vocal in the so-called 'antiglobalization' movement, and watched in horror two years ago as everything we were trying to warn the public about exploded in all our faces. I had hoped this would lead to better, more critical analyses of the institutions and people involved, as well as the schemes that created this mess, but sadly, the bulk of the media continues to champion these policies of ruin, and bankrupt 'logic' of global capital, and view those opposed to it with hostility.

I became a critic of the Israeli Government after I made an off-handed comment about a specific Israeli policy in one of my articles, and was similarly attacked as an "antisemite" by supporters of the Israeli Government and its deliberate perpetuation of the military, political, and economic campaign to deny the Palestinians their rights and annex their land and resources.

This led me to become more informed about the conflict, which naturally led me to become vocal in exposing the truth about the senseless conflict, and trying to find a way to end it.

The Media Naqba - Suppressing History Benefits No-One The mainstream media's distorted coverage of Israel's use of deadly force to suppress peaceful dissent is yet another glaring example of the hypocrisy that allows this injustice to continue.

Richard Goldstone did not Retract the Report Despite the insistance that Judge Rochard Goldstone has 'retracted' his report on the UN's investigation into crimes committed during 'Operation Cast Lead', Israel's merciless attack on the inftrastructure and imprisoned population of Gaza, nothing of the sort has taken place. As usual, there is much more to the story.

A Bush in Obama's Clothing? UPDATE: Qom Site Clean The IAEA has found nothing suspicious or threatening about the "secret" Iranian facility at Qom, contradicting the hysterical claims made by the politicians trying to lie/frighten us into another senseless war, and the press that's helping them.

Solidarity, Not Charity, for the People of Gaza I have yet to see any coverage of this voyage, especially on this, Human Rights Day, in any of the Western press. If you have seen any, could you kindly provide a link?

"Free Gaza Is A Cool Idea" Regev's statement is an attempt to 'poo-poo" the group, and downplay the fact that its successes have hilighted the illegality and illegitimacy of Israel's policy. His reference to the "Taliban" - the media's term for the entire Afghan Resistance - plays on the public's mistaken belief that Afghanistan is a "just war", as opposed to just a war, motivated by the self-interest and arrogance of its architects.
