Israel’s Nuclear Arsenal Vexed NixonDAVID STOUT NY Times-"Should Washington insist that Israel rein in its development of nuclear weapons? What would the United States do if Israel refused? Perhaps the solution lay in deliberate ambiguity, or simply pretending that America did not know what Israel was up to. These were some of the options that Mr. Kissinger laid out for Mr. Nixon on that day before men first walked on the moon." 30/11/2007
York prof awarded $2,500 in academic freedom dispute -Two articlesCanadian Jewish News-"The publication, called The Tail that Wags the Dog, suggested that some members of the York University Foundation, York’s fundraising arm, were closely aligned with pro-Israel organizations and were the reason why Daniel Freeman-Malloy, a pro-Palestinian activist, was expelled from the school for his role in a noisy campus protest."23/11/2007
Torture and the new US Attorney-GeneralPhilip Giraldi - Huffington Post - As Mukasey, Schumer, and Feinstein are all Jewish, one would have hoped that they might have paid more attention to issuing a free pass on the torture issue given its historical antecedents. In particular, they should perhaps study the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials to learn how the Nazis institutionalized torture as part of the judicial system, acceptance of torture being just one part of an institutional mindset that led to much greater horrors.18/11/2007

Israel, Free Speech, and the Oxford UnionAvi Shlaim- Website of Norman Finkelstein-"The passion with which many prominent American Jews defend Israel betrays an atavistic attitude of `My country, right or wrong`. One example is Alan Dershowitz, the Harvard law professor and crusader on behalf of Israel. One of his books is called The Case for Israel. As the title suggests, this is not an objective, academic treatise but a lawyer`s brief for his client. The lawyer in question is no friend of free speech when it comes to criticism of Israel, however well substantiated. Recent events in Oxford suggest that those of us who thought that attempts to stifle free debate about Israel are confined to American campuses need to think again."16/11/2007

The Secret History of the Impending War with Iran That the White House Doesn`t Want You to KnowJohn H. Richardson - Esquire - " Twice they crossed the Israeli-army lines to visit Arafat under siege. Powell seemed to think he had authorization from the White House to explore what everyone was calling "political horizons," the safely vague shorthand for a peaceful future, so on the final day Leverett holed up in a suite at the David Citadel Hotel in Jerusalem with a group of senior American officials -- the U. . ambassador to Israel, the U. S. consul general to Jerusalem, assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern affairs Bill Burns -- trying to hammer out Powell`s last speech. Then the phone rang.
