It’s relatively easy to report on the news in Gaza: this is today’s death toll, that is the number of injured. This hospital is under attack, that university campus was blown to smithereens. Here is a genocidal statement from a high-ranking member of Israel’s government, there is brutal attack on a humanitarian aid delivery. The percentage of Gazan homes destroyed, the percentage of Gazan children with acute malnutrition, the number of days people have been eating animal feed or bird... Read more

Just because you have a pulse and you inhale and exhale, doesn’t necessarily mean you are truly alive. Below is a simple test that will tell you whether your inner self is alive – the part of you that connects with the human race and the universe. This is a 3-part test. In Part One, you will look at a chart for a few seconds – just long enough to understand its message. In Part Two, you will read several... Read more

reposted with permission from If Americans Knew (View VP Harris’ full Bloody Sunday anniversary speech here.) VP HARRIS: What we are seeing every day in Gaza is devastating. We have seen reports of families eating leaves or animal feed, women giving birth to malnourished babies with little or no medical care, and children dying from malnutrition and dehydration. This is absolutely true. The people in northern Gaza have been almost entirely without food or water since January. VP HARRIS: As I have said... Read more

Ok, boys and girls. Roll up your sleeves. We have a job to do. We have a war to stop. I do not say this lightly. It’s great that millions of people have turned out for pro-Palestine, pro-ceasefire marches – but it’s not enough. It’s impressive that Democrats in Dearborn, Michigan cast their votes last week for nobody at all rather than Joe Biden – but it’s not enough. It’s legitimate to feel angry about the 30,000+ Gazan death toll... Read more

Did you know the US is complicit in genocide RIGHT NOW? If not, don’t feel bad. American mainstream media have not covered this news very well. It’s entirely possible that many millions of Americans are unaware of this horrifying fact. But since it is being done with our tax dollars ($10 million a day), we ought to know about it – and if we disagree with this use of our hard-earned money, we ought to make some noise. As a... Read more

How is it possible to sleep when you are the target of a massacre? How can you allow yourself to doze off when you know you might not wake up? Only total exhaustion can break through the self-preservation instinct. Total exhaustion, or utter resignation. Or the lull of a surveillance drone, hovering, sensing your presence behind the covered windows. “Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray the Lord my soul to keep.” Once you’ve grown accustomed to a... Read more

Whether you are a dispensationalist cheering for Israel, or an Episcopalian (hi, Pam!) rooting for the Palestinians – or somewhere in between – responsible consumers of news make their choices based on facts, not fiction. Almost all of the major, mainstream media (MSM) outlets have a flawed track record when it comes to factual journalism on Palestine and Israel. I’ve reported on this for If Americans Knew in the past (especially here and here); other alternative media sites do so... Read more

If you have a soul, please help bring the war to an end by sharing this story and contacting your representatives – contact info at the end of the story. This issue is not political – it’s about children and human rights, not politics. Don’t turn your back.) Hind [rhymes with wind] had set off from her home in Gaza City earlier that day with... Read more

Israel has always boasted of having the “most moral army in the world” and practicing “purity of arms.” “What other army,” we croon, “has the benevolence to drop leaflets on the enemy population and tell them to leave before an attack? What other army creates an app that warns the enemy to evacuate, block by block? What other army calls for humanitarian corridors, and stops fighting to let the enemy pass by?” Let’s pretend for a minute that those leaflets... Read more

Western “civilization” has been on display in all its gory (not a misspelling) for the past four months, with no end in sight. It’s shameful beyond words. The allegedly civilized societies of the United States, Europe, and the de facto Western nation of Israel have demonstrated their priorities – and it is not a good look. Those of us – on both sides of the aisle – who buy into the “West is best” paradigm need to do some serious... Read more
