The M.E.K. had its beginnings as a Marxist-Islamist student-led group and, in the nineteen-seventies, it was linked to the assassination of six American citizens."

Bomb planted at WI Planned Parenthood

Bomb planted at WI Planned Parenthood: Let’s call this what it is: domestic terrorism. Let’s call it what it is: part of a years-long, co-ordinated, national effort to make a legal procedure inaccessible by ensuring that all those who seek and provide it must risk their lives to do so. Let’s call this what it is: totally fucking horrifying and totally fucking unacceptable.

Black cop shot 28 times by white cops - and accused of murder — RT

Black cop shot 28 times by white cops - and accused of murder — RT: "After being left for dead, he survived and was then charged with attempted murder of the four white officers who brutalized him," explains Occupy Chicago on the group’s website. The group also argues that the four white officers who opened fire should be prosecuted for attempted murder, as proof exists that they tried to kill Howard Morgan. In the case against the former police officer, however, the prosecution has failed to provide substantial evidence that suggests Morgan opened fire.

OpEdNews - Article: East Timor: a Lesson in Why the Poorest Threaten the Powerful: For many Timorese, their children malnourished and stunted, the democracy is notional. Years of bloody occupation, backed by Australia, Britain and the US, were followed by a relentless campaign of bullying by the Australian government to maneuver the tiny new nation out of its proper share of the seabed's oil and gas revenue. Having refused to recognize the jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice and the Law of the Sea, Australia unilaterally changed the maritime boundary.

Media Silence on Alawadi's Death Staggering | Care2 Causes

Media Silence on Alawadi's Death Staggering | Care2 Causes: I strongly believe a large factor in the silence comes from an unsaid bias against people of the Islamic faith. For the last decade, we have fought a war on terrorism aimed at Islamic countries. So-called leaders raised hell at a proposed community center run by an Imam near the site of 9/11. On television, pundits routinely equate Islam with terrorism. Being a Muslim means you must be a terrorist. It was written on the note next to Awaladi’s body and the mainstream media’s lack of outrage says it as well.

OpEdNews - Article: Has Finkelstein turned traitor?

OpEdNews - Article: Has Finkelstein turned traitor?: Regarding Israel's right to exist, he ridiculed Israel's demand that the Palestinians recognize its right to exist and said that Israel's demand to be recognized as a Jewish state had no legal basis. Indeed, he indirectly admitted that Palestinians are entitled to claim that Israel, whether Jewish or secular, has no inherent right to exist though it can claim that it has acquired the right to have its existence accepted. And indeed that is the current position of Hamas and Fatah also. Both deny Israel's right to exist but accept the fact of its existence.

How the Rich Took Over Airport Secuirty | | AlterNet

How the Rich Took Over Airport Secuirty | | AlterNet: That is what makes the policy of Delta Airlines so shockingly un-American. In Austin, Delta had not one but two lines that fed into the Transportation Security Administration checkpoint area. One line was mixed race, mixed class and mixed age. The other line was usually empty. Now and then a white, middle-aged man would appear in the second line and the first line would be halted as he went directly into the TSA checkpoint.
