    Brazil’s Lula compares Gaza war to the Holocaust; Israel accuses him of trivialising Nazi genocide By Agencies on 3:21 am February 20, 2024No Comment Brazil’s Lula compares Gaza war to the Holocaust; Israel accuses him of trivialising Nazi genocide Tel Aviv: Israel on Sunday condemned Brazil’s president for comparing the war in Gaza to the Holocaust, accusing him of being antisemitic and trivialising the Nazi genocide of European Jews during World War II. The outcry further strained relations between the countries, which have deteriorated since President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva returned to office last year. Lula has portrayed himself...

    Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh says the PA is still seeking unity with Hamas terror group and may hold talks with the group in Moscow on February 26. “Russia has invited all Palestinian factions who will be meeting on the 26 of this month in Moscow. We will see if Hamas is ready to come to the ground with us,” he says at the Munich Security Conference. “We are ready to engage. If Hamas is not then that’s a different story. We need Palestinian unity,” he says. He adds that Hamas needs to meet certain prerequisites. Asked about making...

    Way back in 2005, when I was an MP in the Netherlands, my party was strategising about the upcoming local elections. I belonged to the centre-right VVD, and we were particularly concerned about appealing to the nation’s growing migrant community. After much discussion, the leaders settled on Laetitia Griffith to represent us in Amsterdam. She was black and had roots in Suriname, a former Dutch colony in the Caribbean. She could pull in the city’s Creole vote. More importantly, the VVD’s strategists thought she could win over some of the city’s Muslim population. In the hope of making this task...

    During Sunday’s broadcast of CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) voiced his disapproval of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s leadership. Clyburn, a confidant of President Joe Biden, argued Netanyahu’s leadership had been bad for Israel. However, he would not go as far as to say Biden agreed with him about Netanyahu. “When it comes to Israel, should he stick with his position on Prime Minister Netanyahu or perhaps rethink that relationship?” “Face the Nation” host Robert Costa asked.

    American Thinker ^ | 02/19/2024 | Henry Kopel
    Of all the world’s countries, just one faces an endless public battle over its “right to exist”: Israel. Even countries that have committed genocides with victims numbering in the millions—Turkey, Germany, Russia, China—face no such challenge. And countries whose foundings caused the uprooting and exile of millions more—like Pakistan and modern India—also face no such challenge. So why Israel, and only Israel? The true answer is a tsunami of false propaganda produced by Israel’s detractors and circulated by biased commentators. This includes a torrent of human rights activists and journalists publicly accusing Israel of ruthlessly occupying and oppressing people in...

    Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Fatah, and the Palestine Liberation Organization, were all invited to the meeting in Russia. Russia has extended invitations to various Palestinian factions, including Hamas and Fatah, for discussions on the Israel-Hamas conflict and broader issues in the Middle East. Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov announced the initiative on Friday, highlighting Moscow's desire to engage with all major players in the region amid heightened tensions. The invitation included a dozen Palestinian groups and is slated for "inter-Palestinian" talks scheduled to commence on February 29. Bogdanov, serving as President Vladimir Putin's special envoy for the Middle East,...

    Harvard philosophy professor Dr. Cornel West weighed in on the ongoing protests in reaction to George Floyd's death in police custody -- and the violence and destruction that have taken place in cities across the U.S. over the past several days. West noted that "black faces in high places" were not able to create needed change because they succumbed to the "capitalist economy" and "militarized nation-state." "The Black Lives Matter movement emerged under a black president, black attorney general, and black homeland security and they couldn't deliver," West said about the Obama administration during a CNN interview Friday night.

    Algemeiner ^ | 7-28-16 | Stephen M. Flatow
    JNS.org – I agree with Cornel West. I never thought I would find myself writing those words. West, a leading African-American author and intellectual, is a vicious critic of Israel. He supports the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. He says Israel’s leaders are “war criminals.” In a speech at Princeton last year, he made the wildly absurd claim that the Israelis “are killing hundreds [of Palestinians] daily.” But even a broken clock gives the right time twice a day, so on the rare occasion that West utters words of truth about the Palestinians or Israel, I must acknowledge that....

    Sen. Bernie Sanders endorser and black radical Professor Cornel West explicitly advocated “violence that must flow from below” in a seldom seen video released in January 2015. The comments came in an address to a French institute dedicated to the work of writer Frantz Fanon, one of the thought leaders of the Black Power movement and an acknowledged influence on President Barack Obama.

    Reacting to President Obama's use of the n-word on Marc Maron's podcast, (Princeton / Harvard Professor) Cornel West called him the first "niggerized" president in an appearance on CNN. West criticized Obama as "a person who is afraid and intimidated when it comes to putting a spotlight on white supremacy." "Too many black people are niggerized," West said Monday on CNN. "I would say the first black president has become the first niggerized black president." "A niggerized black person is a black person who is afraid and scared and intimidated when it comes to putting a spotlight on white supremacy...

    Professor Cornel West appeared on CNN International this afternoon to give his take on Ferguson, and said right at the outset, “Ferguson signifies the end of the age of Obama. It’s a very sad end. We began with tremendous hope and we end with great despair.” He went on to cite a “Jim Crow criminal justice system” that doesn’t seek justice for young black and brown people, and said adamantly there is both a race and a class war going on against that group in America right now. CNNI anchor Hala Gorani asked West why he’s “so harsh” on the

    Activist Cornel West says he was disappointed in President Obama's response to this week's shootings in of black men by police in Minnesota and Louisiana. "I thought it was weak," West said, according to The Washington Post. "He's always got to explain to white America how black people are feeling. Black people don't feel as if we're being treated unequally — it's a fact that we're being treated unequally. He sort of always has to serve in this translating role. That's how he rolls, but that's not how I roll." West said while Obama called Thursday's attacks on Dallas police...

    LOS ANGELES, California — Dr. Cornel West, an Ivy League professor-turned-independent presidential candidate, delivered a speech at a pro-Palestinian rally on Saturday in which he ranted against the “genocidal” existence of the State of Israel. In a video West posted to his own Twitter/X account, West declared: Let the word go forth here and now, that we stand with our brothers and sisters and siblings dealing with unbelievable assault and attack, genocidal on the one hand, but 75 years of it, and we still stand tall, they still stand tall, ’cause any time, yes, any time everyday people straighten their...

    Prominent progressive activist and independent presidential candidate Cornel West is facing backlash after declaring his solidarity with “anybody who’s occupied” — claiming that his “people,” too, have “dished out love warriors and freedom fighters,” as he attacked the “American empire” and “cowards in Washington, DC,” for their unwillingness to capitulate to Hamas’s demand for a ceasefire. Speaking at a pro-Palestinian rally in front of the UN headquarters in New York on Saturday, Ivy League professor Dr. Cornel West described being from a “people who, for 400 years, have been terrorized, traumatized, and hated.” Because, he argued, he comes from a...

    The famous public intellectual Cornel West has dramatically quit his job at Harvard University following a tenure dispute, accusing the esteemed school of 'spiritual rot' and 'superficial diversity.' In a resignation letter he shared publicly on Monday night, 68-year-old West slammed Harvard's administration and revealed a litany of personal and professional complaints. 'How sad it is to see our beloved Harvard Divinity School in such decline and decay,' he wrote in the letter. 'The disarray of a scattered curriculum, the disenchantment of talented yet deferential faculty, and the disorientation of precious students loom large.'

    An Imam at the Belgian parliament last week began reciting a verse from the Quran that explicitly calls on Muslims to kill and take Jews captive. The Quran excerpt is verse 33:26 from the Al-Ahzab Surah (chapter). It translates to, “ And He brought down those from the People of the Book who supported the enemy alliance from their own strongholds, and cast horror into their hearts. You ‘believers’ killed some, and took others captive.” Within the Quran, Jews are referred to as the “People of the Book.” The event on Tuesday was not organized by the parliament, but rather...

    Instead of a statue of Queen Elizabeth, Trafalgar Square will feature "transgender sex workers". Satire is practically pointless nowadays. I’ve done plenty of satire over the years and I doubt that I could make up wilder headlines than the reality. Take this one up above. I’d like to say that I made it up, but we ended up living in a world in which it’s just everyday reality. Sadiq Khan has been criticised for effectively blocking a statue of Queen Elizabeth II in Trafalgar Square until 2030 at the earliest – with “woke art” going there instead. The London Mayor...
