In fact, the Stalinist WWP has organized all the major rallies demanding "peace" on tyrants’ terms.The organizers and speakers at this communist-sponsored, anti-American rally were the same cast of characters, saying the same hateful things that they did at last October’s anti-American rally in Washington, D.C.That it was an anti-American rally was self-evident because one of the speakers said that in Korea anti-war rallies are known as "f-cking America rallies."

On one side, the vanguard, are groups of people who are more resolute and committed, better organized and able to take a leading role in the struggle, and on the other side, the mass, are larger numbers of people who participate in the struggle or are involved simply by their social position, but are less committed or well-placed in relation to the struggle, and will participate only in the decisive moments, which in fact change history.

    THREE days before Christmas 1996, Chris Van de Werken, an environment officer in the sleepy little town of Nunspeet, 40 miles east of Amsterdam, went jogging in the woods near his home. He never came back. Alerted by gunshots, passers-by found Van de Werken's body on a cycle path. Although dozens of people were questioned, no motive was established and nobody was charged. In April 1997 the inquiry was closed. Five years later it has been reopened. This weekend, as the Netherlands mourned Pim Fortuyn, the populist right-wing politician, police were investigating links between his assassination last Monday and what...

The current international finance architecture is based on the US dollar as the dominant reserve currency, which now accounts for 68 percent of global currency reserves, up from 51 percent a decade ago. Yet in 2000, the US share of global exports (US$781.1 billon out of a world total of $6.2 trillion) was only 12.3...

    He sports the modest title of communications director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, a lobby group, but Hussein Ibish is a fast-rising star who appears frequently on the top-rated television talk shows, in leading newspapers, at think tanks, and in the corridors of power. He has been appearing in places like The Los Angeles Times and on The O'Reilly Factor. He's spoken for the Woodrow Wilson Center and his group turns up often at the White House. The remarkable thing is how extremist his views are. Unlike most of today's prominent Muslim spokesmen, however, the 38-year-old Ibish does not advocate...

    TEXAS CITY -- A Marxist who teaches American government won some job security Monday when College of the Mainland board members granted him protection from being fired for his political views. The unanimous decision came after an emotional two-hour public hearing attended by dozens of students and others who supported David Michael Smith's application for tenure -- and many others who said he shouldn't be teaching American students anything. "I believe his views and philosophy are incompatible with a public institution of higher learning," said former Galveston County Judge Ray Holbrook, one of Smith's most outspoken opponents. "It seems clear...

    THE MONTHLY REVIEW, March 25 (IslamOnline & News Agencies)- In an interview to The Monthly Review, published Monday, Noam Chomsky, the longtime political activist, writer and professor of linguistics at MIT, asserted that the U.S. is a leading terrorist state. Chomsky referred to how the western media has been lacking in providing a context and a background for the September 11th attacks on New York and Washington, blaming the incident on the entire Muslim Arab population without differentiating between the prime suspect group of Al-Qaeda and the population of the region. He pointed out to how the U.S. has constantly...

    TEXAS CITY -- It rarely stirs up much of a fuss beyond the campus boundaries when a college board considers granting tenure to a professor. However, the case of David Michael Smith -- avowed Marxist and unabashed critic of capitalism -- can indeed be called a rare one at College of the Mainland in this Galveston County town. The 47-year-old Smith has attracted a small but vocal group of critics who say that, rather than receive job security, he should be fired. That doesn't appear likely. The board is expected to approve his application for tenure Monday, or protection from...

    BERKELEY, Calif. — Rep. Barbara Lee, the lone vote against war following the Sept. 11 attacks, continued to sound a drumbeat of dissent as she spoke Monday at the University of California. "Peace must be a policy option. It's got to be on the table at all times. It should be really ... our only option if we want to turn over to our children a world that is less dangerous and more secure," she said. After her Sept. 14 vote against a resolution giving sweeping war powers to the president, Lee was bitterly criticized nationally and even faced death...

    The U.S. and guns, according to them. The government of China has just issued this year’s “Human Rights Record of the United States.” Much of the report consists of pseudo-factoids created by Leftist interest groups, allegedly showing what a terrible country America is. The leadoff item is an extended complaint about American gun ownership. The Chinese government frets that “The United States is the country with the biggest number of private guns.” We are also, of course, the country with the biggest number of private books, private churches, private newspapers, private computers, private single-family homes, and other tools and incidents...

After the hijacking and crashing of four jetliners and the collapse of the World Trade Center towers on September 11, the U.S. Government could only ask "who?" The United $tates has accumulated so many serious enemies that it was difficult to answer "who did it?"
