    Considering the North Korean Peoples' dire economic straits and their real needs, North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un's, wasteful, highly provocative act is a symptom of his dementia. Like Syria's Assad, the continual suffering of the North Korean people means nothing to him.

Hopefully, the new leaders of China will reassess the damage they have done to the Tibetans and act accordingly.

The U.S. presidential candidate has the Democratic progressive vote in his pocket and is wise not to reveal that, on the Middle East, he stands more to the right than his fans would like him to.

Why this liberal Zionist now supports BDS

Calling the occupation 'unsustainable' is how liberal Zionists ease their conscience and excuse their timidity, by telling themselves it can’t last. But it will last – unless we start acting more like radicals.
