In the photo above we see US Congressman Ed Royce of California discussing HR 11, a resolution he introduced condemning the UN Security Council for its recent action on Israeli settlements. You’ll also notice, to Royce’s right, Florida  Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen brushing her hair with a pink hairbrush.

Britain, the Book of Esther, and Al Jazeera’s Exposé on the Lobby

regevmasot

[ Ed. note – A few days ago I posted part one of Al Jazeera’s three-part undercover investigation into the Israeli lobby in the UK. You will find parts two and three at the bottom of this post. I am also sharing an excerpt from a commentary posted today by Gilad Atzmon, who notes that even though the series of reports shows “how Israel and its lobby plot against Britain and the Brits,” the program nonetheless “failed,” as he puts it. The Al Jazeera team, he says, “softened” the report “with the usual politically correct fluff.” Or, to use a distinctly American idiom, they simply couldn’t bring themselves “to call a spade a spade.”

putin3r-jptBy Richard Edmondson

What is it exactly with the leaders of the West and Vladimir Putin? Clearly they view Russia and its president as a threat, but why?

[ Ed. note – In a post I put up on Monday I wrote, “The US government’s unquenchable thirst for overturning other governments is the greatest threat to world peace today.” Apparently 60 percent of the people of Sweden agree with me. Below is a news story on a recent poll conducted in Sweden; the video above supplies an analysis on the conflict in Syria, but also mentions the poll. ]

‘The Mainstream Media has Failed in Most of the West’–Syrian President Assad

[ Ed. note – Every time I see Syrian President Bashar Assad interviewed, I find myself impressed. He is soft-spoken, articulate, and everything he says rings true. In this exchange with a group of French journalists, he comments: “For the French people I would say the mainstream media has failed in most of the West. The narrative has been debunked because of the reality, and you have the alternative media. You have to look for the truth.”
