Wikileaks wallpaper 6

Juan Cole, 5 Jan 2010 The Norwegian newspaper Aftenpost has released a March, 2008, US embassy cable describing the Israeli blockade and siege of Occupied Gaza as an attempt to reduce the society to the lowest possible level of functioning without provoking a “humanitarian crisis” (presumably mass starvation). “Israeli officials have confirmed to Embassy officials […]

WikiLeaks: A Very Short Coincidence Theory

Maidhc Ó Cathail

Maidhc Ó Cathail, 19 Dec 2010 It is surely just a coincidence that the law firm – Finers Stephens Innocent – which represents Julian Assange and set up the Julian Assange Defense Fund is also legal adviser to the Rothschild Waddesdon Trust; that the partially Rothschild-owned Economist gave Assange its 2008 Freedom of Expression Award; that Lord Rothschild is deputy chairman of […]

WikiLeaks — Whose Agenda?

Wikileaks wallpaper 2

Jeff Gates, 18 Dec 2010 Those tracking the agenda now advancing behind the Wikieaks façade should check for the undisclosed bias among editors at the four newspapers chosen to select what was leaked. And when it was leaked. The pro-Israeli bias of The New York Times needs no citations. In London, WikiLeaks releases are overseen […]

Sex, Lies, Iran, Israel and WikiLeaks

Anthony Lawson: WikiLeaks has given the mainstream media yet another opportunity to vilify Iran. A typical headline, from the New York Times was: “Around the world distress over Iran.” And, ironically, it is true, but not in the way the headline writer meant. Around the world there is distress over Iran, distress at the way […]

WikiLeaks: Advancing an Israeli Agenda?

Maidhc Ó Cathail

Maidhc Ó Cathail, 11 Dec 2010 Like 9/11, WikiLeaks has been singularly good for Israel. Asked on the night of September 11, 2001 what the terrorist attacks meant for U.S.-Israel relations, Benjamin Netanyahu, the then former prime minister, tactlessly but accurately replied, “It’s very good.” And on the day after WikiLeaks’ publication of U.S. diplomatic […]

Many of us shook our heads with a mixture of disgust and vindication. We had long been aware of the brutality […]

WikiLeaks ‘struck a deal with Israel’ over diplomatic cables leaks

Wikileaks Fail

IndyMedia, 9 Dec 2010 We should obviously all support WikiLeaks and its founder and spokesperson, Julian Assange, who has just been arrested in Britain, in this dirty war by states around the globe against transparency and openness. But in the world of politics, sadly, things are never as innocent as they appear. According to new […]

WikiLeaks: What, really, is the problem?

Wikileaks wallpaper 6

Alan Hart, 7 Dec 2010 Some commentators, bloggers and other writers, were quick to jump to the conclusion that the avalanche of documents being released by WikiLeaks is part and parcel of an Israeli/Mossad deception strategy. One implication being that WikiLeaks’ founder, Julian Assange is, knowingly or not, manipulated by Zionism. On the basis of […]

On the Historical Necessity of Wikileaks – An Analysis

Wikileaks wallpaper 4

Dr. Lawrence Davidson 4 Dec, 2010 Historical Precedent Given the ahistorical nature of the public mind, few people will recall that as the United States prepared to enter World War I, American citizens were quite exercised over the issue of “open diplomacy.” Indeed, at the time, President Woodrow Wilson made it the number one issue […]

Wildfires and Wikileaks

Mazin Qumsiyeh

Mazin Qumsiyeh, 4 Dec 2010 Wildfires The news about the tragic “wildfires” in Northern Palestine is a reminder of several facts: 1) the areas was forested by non-indigenous conifers after uprooting indigenous trees and destroying the terraced landscape and ethnically cleansing over 50 villages from the area that is now supposedly “forested”.  Ecologically very destructive […]
