23-01-2008 04:23Dear friends,
The people of Gaza are being squeezed to death. This week's blackouts have finally reached the attention of the world -- and the international community could help end the blockade. Our obligation is clear. This isn't about Israel vs Palestine or Hamas vs Fatah: this is about 1.5 million human beings locked up in the biggest prison on earth.

Hamas will not back down from its highly successful strategy, and Fatah cannot sustain an overt collaboration with Israel in these circumstances.

20-01-2008 11:05The disinformation campaign has gone into full gear. The British and US media are increasingly pointing towards "preemptive war" as an act of "self defense" against Al Qaeda and the State sponsors of terrorism, who are allegedly preparing a Second 911. The underlying objective, through fear and intimidation, is ultimately to build public acceptance for the next stage of the Middle East "war on terrorism" which is directed against Syria and Iran.
19-01-2008 21:53Remember, just before her death, Bhutto listed a number of people within the US-backed Musharrif Regime, including "Omar Sheik, the man who murdered Osama bin Laden".
Let me get this straight. They have the assassin on videotape, but they don't know who killed her? Riiiight.
