20.03.2015 On March 17, general elections took place in Israel. Despite the fact that a more even result was predicted, with the nearly final count, Benjamin Netanyahu is getting a clear victory over his main rival, the Labor Party's Isaac Herzog.
02.12.2014 Last Tuesday, November 18, two Palestinians armed with a knife and a pistol entered a Jerusalem synagogue during morning prayers and killed 4 Israeli Jews, while 5 others were wounded. The Israeli police quickly took over the place and killed the two attackers.
31.10.2014 Jerusalem has turned into one of the key settings of the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. The summary execution of a young Palestinian and the subsequent decision of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, to close access to the Esplanade of the Mosques, are only the most recent expressions from an extensive history of violence and oppression by the State of Israel. During the week that is coming to an end, Jerusalem was a setting of an escalation of tensions and confrontations.
20.08.2014 After 10 days of a truce during which no agreement for a ceasefire was reached, the State of Israel again bombed the Gaza Strip from Tuesday, August 19. Taking as an excuse the launching by Hamas of 3 missiles that fell on Israeli territory without causing victims or material damages, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Zionist government ordered the resumption of the military offensive. More than 80 aerial attacks were carried out, with a toll of almost 30 Palestinians dead and dozens of wounded. The main target of the Zionist army was the chief of the military wing of Hamas, Mohamed Deif, who directs the al-Qassam Brigades. For this, the Zionist army launched five missiles on his home, killing his wife and eight-month old son. The fate of Deif, who was living in hiding, is still unknown.
18.08.2014 While President Obama is enjoying his vacation, US airplanes and drones are again dropping tons of bombs on Iraq. This new military venture of the United States in the Middle East began on Friday, August 8 and has as an objective: stopping the advance of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or just Islamic State, that, since June, has occupied about one third of the territory of Syria and a fourth of that of Iraq.
According to Obama, what motivates these bombings is protecting Christian groups and those of the Yazidi minority (a group of the population that professes a different religion), savagely persecuted by the ISIL, this new "Frankenstein", that emerged from a detachment of the Al Qaeda network during the US occupation of Iraq.
07.08.2014 "Mission accomplished," said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, after announcing the withdrawal of Israeli troops from the Gaza Strip. It was almost 30 days of a military offensive that left a toll of 1900 dead, more than half, civilians, among whom are numbered more than 400 children, and 9,500 wounded (of whom, 2,500 are children), more than 10,000 dwellings destroyed, as well as basic infrastructure, like the only electrical power station, schools, hospitals (30% of which had to close because of the damages they experienced) and mosques.
04.08.2014 The title refers to a common belief used to justify the eternal conflict between Israelis and Palestinians and the current offensive in Gaza. But that supposed ontology of hatred is false. Arabs and Jews lived together for centuries under Moorish control of Andaluz in the Spanish empire.
01.08.2014 The Gaza Strip has been devastated. After 23 days of massive bombings and of the bloodthirsty attack by land, there are more than 1,300 Palestinians dead, 75% of whom are civilians, among them, some 250 children.
25.07.2014 The number of those dead and wounded because of the bombings and the military land offensive of the State of Israel continues to increase significantly. There are no words to describe the atrocities that the Zionist Army is committing; they have bombed hospitals, schools, mosques and even a group of children that were playing on a beach. They have already murdered more than 700 Palestinians; they have wounded another 4,000, and there are tens of thousands of refugees. 70% of the dead are civilians and more than 20%, children. After 16 days of massive bombing and 6 days of an invasion by land, Israel has caused a huge humanitarian crisis, and its Prime Minister, the Zionist Benjamin Netanyahu, has declared, with complete impunity, that the operation "will continue until it achieves all the objectives".
18.07.2014 The conflict between Israelis and Palestinians seems to be doomed to be eternal. The conclusion is deduced from the experience of numerous failed attempts at negotiation, during the 66 years of existence of the State of Israel.
17.07.2014 After a seven-day bombardment of the civilian population of Gaza resulting in a death toll of 172 (36 of them children) and over 1,500 injured, the right-wing government of Israel is continuing Operation Protective Edge while assessing the ceasefire proposed by the military-backed Egyptian government.
13.07.2014 From the early morning of Monday, July 7, the State of Israel launched a military offensive called "Protective Edge" on the Gaza Strip, consisting of the massive bombing of this densely populated Palestinian territory and threatening a ground attack.
08.07.2014 On June 12, 2014, three Israeli students were kidnapped while hitch-hiking towards Gush Etzion, just north of Hebron in the West Bank. Hebron is a group of twenty-two Israeli settlements south of Jerusalem. Hamas welcomed this kidnapping, without actually claiming responsibility, contrary to other Islamist groups. Moreover, the Palestinian government has taken part in the search for the kidnapping victims by the sides of the Israeli State. However, the Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu decided to directly lash out at the Palestinian State that he holds responsible for the kidnapping because it is in the hands of Hamas, while the two arrested suspects are not part of Hamas and actually belong to a clan generally hostile to this latter. Finally, the Israeli government, as usual, prefers a policy of collective punishment, to hold the whole Palestinian population responsible for this kidnapping, and to lead a genuine armed intervention against them.
19.06.2014 In Iraq, civil war has again broken out between Sunnis and Shiites, the two big groups into which the Muslim world is divided. After several days of bloody fighting, there are now hundreds of dead and wounded and tens of thousands displaced. The northern part of the country has been under the control of the Sunni insurgents, that are showing signs of great cruelty and savagery, in order to terrorize the population. The Iraqi army, trained for years by the US, has seemed totally powerless to stop the militias of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), that already controls key cities like Mosul, the second-largest city of Iraq,Tikrit, Kirkuk, as well as the area of Tel Afar, bordering Syria.
20.05.2014 On Tuesday, May 13, more than 250 miners died in Soma, Turkey, in a mine explosion; several dozen more were seriously injured. Hundreds of workers continue to be trapped in a mine 400 meters underground, with their lives endangered.
16.12.2013 In the early hours of November 24, the agreement between Iran and the so-called "P5 + 1" group (the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, the United States, Great Britain, France, China and Russia, plus Germany) was announced in Geneva.
14.09.2013 In just two weeks, the US government went from announcing an imminent and unilateral military attack on Syria as a reprisal for the alleged use of chemical weapons by Assad's regime, to accepting a "diplomatic solution" proposed by Russia – Assad's main international ally – that would consist of the Syrian government's handing over its stocks of chemical weapons to international organizations for their destruction, under supervision of the UN.
07.07.2013 The Generals have done it again!
Egypt’s president, Mohamed Morsi, was deposed one year after being democratically elected by the Egyptian people. For those opposed to Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), the move by the military is seen as supporting a popular uprising and a belated effort to revive or restore the Egyptian revolution that ousted Hosni Mubarak more than two years ago. But for Morsi’s supporters or those who simply had any respect for democratic governance and the rule of law, the action by the army is nothing short of a brazen though soft military coup d’état.
Which one is it? Here are the facts.

Morsi and the Freedom and Justice Party...
