Choosing a New UN Secretary-General

Choosing a New UN Secretary-General by Stephen Lendman Appointees serve five-year terms, renewable indefinitely. No one so far held the office more than 10 years.

Remembering Deir Yassin

Remembering Deir Yassin by Stephen Lendman Turning historic Palestine into Israel meant massacring its people, raping its women, then murdering them, destroying its villages, stealing its land, expelling its people, wanting the fewest number of Arabs remaining.
