Just Say No

Mazel tov to the courage of Ha'aretz, which has a fine fiery opinion piece
by Gideon Levy, titled "America, Stop Sucking Up to Israel." Calling
his home "a country whose language is force," Levy blasts the
"sticky-sweet praise" heaped on Israel by Obama, "even though he has
spent nearly a year fruitlessly lobbying for Israel to be so kind as to
something, anything" to halt the occupation and restart the peace
process.

"Before no other country on the planet
does the United
States kneel and plead like this... Now is the time to say to the
United States: Enough flattery. If you don't change the tone, nothing
will change."

 
 
 
 
 

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
