Iran’s Longstanding US-Inflicted Nightmare

Iran's Longstanding US-Inflicted Nightmare by Stephen Lendman It began in August 1953 - replacing democratically elected Mohammad Mossadeq (Iran's most popular politician at the time) with a  generation of brutal US-installed Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi dictatorship.  A 2013 declassified CIA document (marking the coup's 60th anniversary) publicly acknowledged the agency's involvement (Operation TPAJAX) - what's...

Israel Denies Medications for Palestinian Prisoners

Israel Denies Medications for Palestinian Prisoners by Stephen Lendman Thousands of Palestinians are imprisoned for political reasons. They're lawlessly incarcerated for wanting fundamental rights mandated under international law. Abuse in Israel's gulag is appalling. Barbarism best describes it. Cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment is standard practice - including torture and other forms of physical and... Continue Reading →

Phony Claims About Syria Retaining Chemical Weapons

Phony Claims About Syria Retaining Chemical Weapons by Stephen Lendman Since Obama began waging proxy on war in Syria in March 2011, numerous false charges about Assad using chemical weapons followed - discredited by verifiable facts on the ground.

Anti-Climax in Greece: Epitaph for a Failed State

Anti-Climax in Greece: Epitaph for a Failed State by Stephen Lendman The latest Greek tragedy chapter came around 4:00AM Athens time Thursday.

Imprisonment for Stone-Throwing: Only in Israel

Imprisonment for Stone-Throwing: Only in Israel by Stephen Lendman Israel outrageously equates stone-throwing with terrorism. It calls premeditated naked aggression against 1.8 million near-defenseless Gazans self-defense. Rogue states operate this way. Last November, Israeli cabinet ministers approved up to 20 years imprisonment for Palestinians accused of stone-throwing - if authorities claim it was with intent... Continue Reading →
