American Choice: Genocide Or Justice?

By Finian Cunningham Two-year-old Palestinian girl Naama Abu al-Foul sleeps after undergoing treatment at Gaza City’s Al-Shifa hospital following Israeli bombing next to her family’s home in the battered city, July 23, 2014. July 24, 2014 "ICH" - "Press TV" -- - US top diplomat John Kerry says a ceasefire deal in Gaza is close but there is still a way to go for one to be implemented.

What's the hold-up? Men, women and children are being slaughtered in their hundreds. Hospitals, schools, mosques, churches, the wounded are being attacked against all norms of international law and morality.

But the Israeli regime doesn't want to engage in disc…

The Palestinians’ Right to Self-Defense

By Chris Hedges

July 24, 2014 "ICH" - "Truthdig" --- If Israel insists, as the Bosnian Serbs did in Sarajevo, on using the weapons of industrial warfare against a helpless civilian population then that population has an inherent right to self-defense under Article 51 of the United Nations Charter. The international community will have to either act to immediately halt Israeli attacks and lift the blockade of Gaza or acknowledge the right of the Palestinians to use weapons to defend themselves.No nation, including any in the Muslim world, appears willing to intervene to protect the Palestinians. No world body, including the United Nations, appears willing or able to pressure Israel through sanctions to conform to the norms of international law. And the longer we in the world community fail to act, the worse the spiral of violence will become.
Israel does not have the right to drop 1,000-pound iron fragmentation bombs on Gaza. It …

Government of Ukraine Collapses
Today the Ukrainian government resigned. The prime minister Yatsenyuk, or "Yat" as affectionately called by Victoria Nuland who put Yat into office, resigned along with the entire Cabinet. The parliament refused to vote the harsh conditions demanded by the IMF.  I am not sure what this means.  Perhaps it is just a tactic to force the parliament to do as the IMF says.  Or perhaps Yat, Washington's stooge, has realized that IMF or no IMF, Ukraine's economy is imploding and wants to get out of the blame.
The point for now is that I checked the BBC, the New York Times, and CNN and there is not one word about the collapse of the government of Ukraine.  
I did notice that the BBC, now a reliable element of Washington's Ministry of Propaganda, reported, as if it were true, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf's claim that the Russian military is shelling Ukrainian forces.  When Harf tried this out today on a roomful of journalists, the…
