Feeling the Hate in Jerusalem

17-07-2009 13:59

This film, made by award-winning journalist Max Rosenthal, shows the reactions of a group of night revellers in Jerusalem to President Obama's Middle East initiatives. Many of the interviewees are American-Jewish visitors to the city. After 400,000 views on youtube, it was pulled as "inappropriate content", and Rosenthal would like to know why. He has received death threats and been accused of being a "self-hating Jew". His response, in the Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz, was: "I am self-hating, but not because I'm Jewish."
We are following the producer's request to re-publish this film to many sites, including youtube, and let's see if this censorship happens again.

Washington & the Coup in Honduras: Here is the Evidence

17-07-2009 05:51

Soldiers entering the Presidential Palace compound, Tegucigalpa, 28 June 2009
No one doubts that the fingerprints of Washington are all over the coup d’etat against President Manuel Zelaya that began last June 28th. Nevertheless, the majority coincide in excusing the Obama Administration from any responsibility in the Honduran coup, blaming instead the lingering remains of the Bush-Cheney era and the war hawks that still pace the halls of the White House.
