The UN mandate 424 demands that Israel return to it's pre '67 borders.
She has refused to do so in 40 years.
Israel 's hegemony in the region is manifest in her military and social expansionist policies .
She ignores the rest of the world , perpetrates whatever atrocities she chooses with impunity. When criticized by the Goldstein report she attacked Goldstein , then attacken the UN for having the timerity to criticize her invasion of Lebanon and killing of over 1400 civilians.
There is one bizarre and paradoxical for a recalibrating the balance of power in the Middle East.... read full story / add a comment

The Galway Alliance Against War will mark International Womens Day on Friday evening with a fundraiser for women organisations in Afghanistan, whose members risk life and limb on a daily basis to offer young girls an education.

So, GAAW will hold a fundraiser for these women groups in Woodquays Rowing Club on Friday 5th March starting at 9pm. Admission to this ceili/disco is only 5.

Sorry to report that the PA through its Israeli, US and Jordanian trained Quisling thugs has now reduced armed struggle to an occasional tokenistic spasm in the West Bank and even nonviolent resistance, in the case of Bil'in, a mockery: PA placemen on the Popular Committee now only permit eunuchized, grand old Duke of York type Friday traipses to the nearby Apartheid-Annexation Wall with anything stronger planned such as a protest against Mubarak's Wall of Shame between Gaza and Egypt nipped in the bud, as it were. read full story / add a comment

Lets face it . The GP is now little more than the bordello of Irish politics. You pay - the harlot performs. She does so at the whim of the punter.And repeats it just so long as he pays.
The manner of their Machiavellian march into Dail Eireann under Gormley rather than Sergeant amply demonstrated their lust for the whiff of power- principals were for losers. read full story / add a comment

If Ms de Burca's allegations are to be believed as written her unbridled personal column in today's Irish Times, it would seem that not only have the Greens lost their moral compass ; they have buried it under a host of erstwhile worthy principles.
In these circumstances t'would be well were the Green's to bury this current arrangement of their party system and try to reform themselves rigorously before they attempt to resurrect themselves , with any credibility. read full story / add a comment

Israel's Haaretz newspaper is reporting that: Israel's new immigration police has joined security forces in cracking down on foreign activists residing in the Palestinian West Bank ... The Oz Unit participated last week in the attempted arrest of a number of activists in the West Bank town of Bil'in, and also in the raid that nabbed leading Palestinian militants Mohammed Hatib that same night. Two weeks ago, the unit took part in the arrest of a Czech activist in Ramallah.

A fact I can attest to as I was one of the "foreigners" and videoographer of the night's brutal proceedings in Bil'in before I had to exit the West Bank at the weekend.

As Tony Blair's evidence to the Iraq invasion inquiry , Old Labour ' statesman said yesterday he didnt believe a word of his rambling fiction. Did he really get away with this with his lying by increments, his obscenely flawed rhetoric. His false claims re Saadam and WMD.. the notion of a rogue state ..- the real rogue stat in the region.
And do the Brits reall give a dam anyway, as integrity has only an inconvenience and only had shop currency.
The whole inchoate gibberish. - from the man who felt the hand of history on his shoulder.
Yo ! Blair- as GW Bush would have said.
