Who is the Vassal? – The USA or Israel regarding Iran – By Uri Avnery

Who is the Vassal? – The USA or Israel regarding Iran

By Uri Avnery

“IF YOU want to understand the policy of a nation, look at the map!” Napoleon is supposed to have said.  It is good advice.

If you are living in Israel, these days, you get the impression that the huge State of Israel is dictating to its American vassal what to do about Iran.

President Donald Trump listens and complies. Bibi the Great tells him to tear up the Iranian deal for no obvious reason, and he obeys. He has no choice, poor man.

But then you look at the map, and to your great surprise you discover that the USA is a huge country, while Israel is a mere speck, so small that its name has to be written outside its borders, in the sea.     Continue reading

The Van Carnage:–Misogny is not all there is to see

…. It’s Implicit — Mental Health we must Revisit..

By Yvonne Sam

The Attack is a Shame but is the perpetrator the only one to Blame? The writing was clearly on the wall. But then again it was whose call?

Like most other Canadians I was horrified on hearing about the van attack in Toronto, and sprung into action by posing my overworked question” Who!? Why?  However, while the nation and the world over join in sympathy with Toronto following the senseless loss of human lives in the recent van ramming carnage, one cannot help but remark with great concern at the familiar pattern that plays out without fail after incidents of such a nature.    Continue reading

Guyana: Massive scale of corruption and money laundering will have surprises – by GHK Lall

Opinion: Massive scale of corruption and money laundering will have surprises

by GHK Lall

Professor Clive Thomas, Head of SARA, went public to point out that international documents show the “massive scale of corruption and money laundering” in once cash choked Guyana (Demerara Waves April 20).  It has been a long hard road to arrive at this ugly well-known place, which made many locals impatient and doubtful.

This was further fueled by the defiant snarls of “show the evidence.”  I, who should have known better, must confess to my own occasional misgivings; and this despite being privy to some names, documents, and circumstances way back over there.  Well, many who made an art form of existing in wicked darkness now will be hauled into the cleansing light of day.     Continue reading

Toronto attack: Facebook post may link suspect to misogynistic online subculture

Post appears to connect alleged killer with ‘incel’, or ‘involuntary celibate’, communities that have made sexual frustration the basis for misogyny

Alek Minassian

Shortly before a rented van ploughed into a crowd of pedestrians in Toronto, killing 10 and wounding 14 others, a short and cryptic message was posted on the Facebook account of Alek Minassian, the man accused of carrying out the attack.

The post referred to another mass killer – Elliot Rodger, who shot dead six people and wounded 13 others in Isla Vista, California, in 2014 – and said that the “incel rebellion has already begun. We will overthrow all the Chads and the Stacys”.   READ MORE
