Israel’s Crime of Apartheid: UN Agency Head’s Forced Resignation
By Stephen Lendman, March 19 2017
Pro-Western UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres showed he’s no different from his disgraceful predecessors. He acted on orders from Washington. The Palestinian BDS National Committee denounced him for removing from the UN’s web site a report “Israel does not want you to read,” it said.
The Complete Censored ESCWA Report: “Israel Practices towards the Palestinian People and the Question of Apartheid”
By Richard Falk and Virginia Tilley, March 19 2017
The decision by the UN Secretary General to remove this report points to the criminalization of the United Nations. Censorship is applied by the UN body on the explicit instructions of the US government, which alongside Israel is responsible for extensive war crimes against the people of the Middle East.
Trump Slips into ‘Endless War’ Cycle
By James W Carden, March 18 2017
Trump, it turns out, seems every bit as captive to the bipartisan foreign policy consensus as was his predecessor. Many supporters of Barack Obama held the errant hope that Obama would finally break the cycle of wars begun a quarter-century ago when George H.W. Bush launched Operation Desert Storm against Iraq and in defense of desert petro-states, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. Trump partisans may object that he’s only been in office for about two months. Give him time, they say. That’s fair enough, but it is worth reviewing Trump’s foreign policy record up to this point.
Rwanda: Human Rights Watch and the Absolute Truth
By Ann Garrison, March 18 2017

HRW famously crusades for the same U.S. wars of aggression for the purpose of protecting citizens of other nations from their own governments. Its warmongering catechism includes Halabja, Rwanda, Srebrenica and now Aleppo, all of which it cites as failures to protect civilians that compel the U.S. to humanitarian war evermore.
Propaganda, Fake News, and Media Lies: The Diabolical Business of Global Public Relations Firms
By Peter Phillips, March 18 2017
The expansion of public relations and propaganda (PRP) firms inside news systems in the world today has resulted in a deliberate form of news management. Maintenance of continuous news shows requires a constant and ever-entertaining supply of stimulating events and breaking news bites. Corporate media are increasingly dependent on various government agencies and PRP firms as sources of news.
The Information Superhighway, The Feeling of Absurdity, Something is Inherently Wrong, Buried in a Snowstorm…
By Edward Curtin, March 20 2017
Wherever you go in the US, you sense a generalized panic and an inability to slow down and focus. Depression, anxiety, hopelessness fill the air. Most people sense that something is seriously wrong, but don’t know exactly what.
