08-16-07 - Backlash Over Book on Policy for Israel "On July 24, Council President Marshall Bouton phoned one of us (Mearsheimer) and informed him that he was canceling the event," and that his decision "was based on the need 'to protect the institution.' He said that he had a serious 'political problem,' because there were individuals who would be angry if he gave us a venue to speak, and that this would have serious negative consequences for the council. 'This one is so hot,' Marshall maintained." All a big conspiracy theory, right Abe? The proof is right there.

08-16-07 - A year after the Second Lebanon War Recent reports have revealed that one of the main justifications for Hizbullah's continuing resistance -- that Israel failed to withdraw fully from Lebanese territory in 2000 -- is now supported by the UN. Last month its cartographers quietly admitted that Lebanon is right in claiming sovereignty over a small fertile area known as the Shebaa Farms, still occupied by Israel.

The UN's admission has been mostly ignored by the international media.

08-16-07 - Mortgages and the Jewish Question Not coincidentally, the big news in Israel last week was the announcement that the Jewish state?s defense budget had to be slashed by a shocking 10%, suddenly and unexpectedly. The reason: Washington told Jerusalem it was not going to deliver an expected infusion of military aid, because Uncle Sam doesn?t have the money. The world economy may not be troubled by the weakness in America, but there?s one little corner of the world that?s terrified.
