01-04-2004 11:07Much has been made of the killing of four American 'civilians' in Falluja, Iraq, for many bringing back echoes of Somalia '93 when dead US troops were dragged through the streets precipitating a US withdrawal. However, even if working for an illegal occupying power can be classed as 'civilian', these people were far from non-combatants.

It is now commonplace for those attacking Israel to call it an 'Apartheid State.' EC Editor Jared Israel examines one piece of evidence for this accusation and finds it to be a clever lie. Mr. Israel argues that the answer to the question, "Is it all right to criticize Israel?" is that it's the wrong question. The right question is: "Is it all right to lie about Israel?" The comparison between South Africa under Apartheid and Israel is examined and found to be absurd. In conclusion, Mr. Israel comments on the attempt by the pro-PLO forces to claim Martin Luther King as their own, providing evidence that, once again, it's a lie.

30-03-2004 18:25If the Vicar of Dibley is the nation’s third favourite comedy (appropriate enough, as it’s a third rate show), Ann Clwyd’s sermons ought to studied more carefully by scriptwriters and cast members alike. Comedy abounds in her latest Guardian elegy to Iraqi "freedom" , a dazzling commixture of imprecation and implication, hosannah and high praise, invocation and intimation. Clwyd, in a curious way, makes the war on Iraq seem the result of desperate appeals by Indict, the commission she headed to try and get Saddam Hussein and his band of thugs nailed in an international court of human rights, in absentia. Those attempts, she explained, were blocked by Russia, China and France – and further adds (perhaps with a Welsh cackle?) that Hussein is now to appear in court, defended by a French lawyer. French and a lawyer! Where will the perfidy end? Well, even the devil must have an advocate you know...
