The Trump Presidency has started and barring any intervening acts, will last for either 4 or 8 years.

Now most people on social media are hyperventilating with either deep despaire or deep hope. Both are probably mistaken about their fears and hoples, but some of the things they fear /hope will happen.

While there is much debate about the impact of the Trump presidency on many things, there is less debate about its impact on the rights of Palestinians – where it will likely be a bigger catastrophe than previous American involvement.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the Israeli right wing already considered it a major win when Trump won the US presidential elections.

Harry Potter and Voldermort unite in the fight against justice

Pop quiz: if a beloved children's author who wrote a series of books about good vs evil and about good winning was confronted with injustice, what would the author's reaction be?

If it is JK Rowling that we are referring to above, the answer is to choose to fight for injustice of course.

The Palestinians of Yarmouk and the shameful silence when Israel is not to blame

Palestinian refugees are being starved, bombed and gunned down like animals. “If you want to feed your children, you need to take your funeral shroud with you,” one told Israeli news website Ynet. “There are snipers on every street, you are not safe anywhere.”

This isn’t happening, however, in southern Lebanon, or even Gaza. And these particular Palestinians aren’t being killed or maimed by Israeli bombs and bullets.

David Cameron to stand with Netanyahu "against terrorism"

David Cameron will participate in a rally against extremism, terrorism and murder of 17 people that occurred in Paris this past week.

He will condemn these actions standing beside Benjamin Netanyahu who has been responsible for the murder of over 2,500 people in the past year.

Where is the sense in that?

Zionist Hasbara love facts (No they dont)

The ZIonist Hasbara loves facts. It loves them so much it doesnt use any, prefering lies instead.

It is useful to have some facts to hand to beat back hyperbole and nonsensical arguments.

Someone has compiled a useful set of links that can be used to combat the Hasbara propaganda: http://theamericanmuslim.org/tam.php/features/articles/consolidated-resp...

Its good to keep it handy because we have facts and the truth on our side - we don't need to get angry or insult, we can prove our points and show what the Hasbara shills present as the lies they are.

Tesco reply to Email about Boycotting Israeli products

I got sent this image of an email reply from Tesco.

I think it says it all.

I didn't used to shop there anyway.

I have been told that a couple hundred protesters forced a Tesco Express store to close in Oldham on Saturday.

The protest may head for one of the bigger supermarket stores tomorrow.

Surprise Surprise, Hamas didn't kidnap & kill the 3 Israeli teens after all

When the bodies of three Israeli teenagers, kidnapped in the West Bank, were found late last month, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not mince words. "Hamas is responsible, and Hamas will pay," he said, initiating a campaign that eventually escalated into the present conflict in the region. 

But now, officials admit the kidnappings were not Hamas's handiwork after all.
