A spectacular opening ceremony - despite the lack of a fifth Olympic rings - somewhat hushed defeatists , but in English-speaking media, there are still voices of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, a Byzantine scam at $ 50 billion , an emanation of Putin's superpower ambitions sick , shameful turning a blind eye to discrimination against gays and Russian lesbians , etc. All these allegations are somewhat correct, but their constant repetition - as well as the awareness that they seem a bit late - it must cause in many a human soul what Goethe called the...

    “I have often wondered what Jews or decent people could have done to push back against the anti-Semitic propaganda of 1930s Germany,” says my friend, Dr. Roberta Seid, the historian and scientific advisor of Stand With Us. Seid was describing an event at my alma-mater, UCLA, where the speaker, Omar Barghouti, co-founder of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, was “on the road again with his anti-Israel show and its pack of bigotry and lies.” I wholeheartedly recommend Seid’s opinion piece, “A Speaker who Brings Hate.” It is a must reading for anyone who has never attended an anti-Israel...

    Trust, concern and respect are the key words in Haverford Colleges honor code. This weekend at least some Haverford students who care about Israel werent feeling as if any of those terms applied to them. There was an event at Haverford College on Sunday, Nov. 24, called The Soldier and the Refusenik. The two speakers who presented are traveling throughout the U.S. on a fundraising tour for their organization, Anarchists Against the Wall. That organization attacks not only the Occupation, but Israels very existence. And perhaps worst of all, the Haverford Center for Peace and Global Citizenship was not only...

Speaking to Kol Yisrael radio, Jibril Rajoub was asked if he condemns the attack, to which he responded, Listen, listen, I condemn everything that causes damage. I condemn it and I condemn those responsible for it. And those responsible for it are the Government of Israel and the prime minister of Israel. Rajoub went on to say that the Israeli government was responsible for the attack, in which...

During the meeting, reported the Associated Press, Obama said that no one is under the illusion that peace between Israelis and Arabs will be easy, but claimed PA Arabs realize that negotiations are the best and only way to achieve a two-state solution. Obama also praised Abbas for consistently rejecting violence and being open to negotiations, according to the report. Abbas said he remained fully committed to the peace process and thanked the...

    Levy's committee has restored Israel's legal narrative about its rights in the "West Bank". There is a huge difference in how a compromise will look if Israel comes to the table as "foreign occupiers," or as a party that has just territorial claims. In January 2012, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Yaakov Neeman, the justice minister, turned to former Israeli supreme court justice Edmond Levy to head a panel of legal experts that would look into questions of land ownership in the "West Bank" (biblical Judea and Samaria, located west of the Jordan River, ed) .

"According to international law, Israelis have a legal right to settle all of Judea and Samaria, at the very least the lands that Israel controls under agreements with the Palestinian Authority. Therefore, the establishment of Jewish settlements [in Judea and Samaria] is, in itself, not illegal."

    Sergei Bagapsh, president of Georgia's breakaway region of Abkhazia, has died aged 62, Abkhaz officials say. They say he passed away in a Moscow hospital from complications following recent lung surgery. Mr Bagapsh won his second five-year term in 2009. Georgia denounced the elections as "illegitimate". Since its brief war with Georgia in 2008 over another disputed territory, South Ossetia, Russia has provided security for Abkhazia. Abkhazia declared independence from Georgia in 1992, but is only recognised by Moscow and a handful of other countries. Abkhaz officials say Vice-President Alexander Ankvab will be acting leader. Russia sent forces into...

If Arabs living in the region are under a form of occupation, the occupier is the Palestinian Authority, he added. Nachman recently joined several other Israeli leaders in Judea and Samaria in sending a strongly-worded letter to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon arguing on behalf of Jewish and Israeli rights in Judea and Samaria, and against the establishment of a PA state in the region. International law clearly shows that Israel is not an...

    In 1915, the US Marines invaded Haiti, occupying the country until 1934. US officials rewrote the Haitian constitution, and when the Haitian national assembly refused to ratify it, they dissolved the assembly. They then held a "referendum" in which about 5% of the electorate voted and approved the new constitution which conveniently changed Haitian law to allow foreigners to own land with 99.9% voting for approval. The situation today is remarkably similar. The country is occupied, and although the occupying troops wear blue helmets, everyone knows that Washington calls the shots. On 28 November an election was held...

The policy announced in an Aug. 20 memorandum from John Morton, the head of the agency drew praise from immigrant advocates, who called it a common-sense strategy, and...

Irrespective of what Israel does, she is deemed guilty. Judge, jury, God and His armies on earth, all conspired and decided there is one root cause for all the ills in the world.

    * When an armed force holds territory beyond its own national borders, the term occupation readily comes to mind. However, not all the factual situations that we commonly think of as occupation fall within the limited scope of the term occupation as defined in international law. Not every situation we refer to as occupation is subject to the international legal regime that regulates occupation and imposes obligations upon the occupier. * The term occupation is often employed politically, without regard for its general or legal meaning. The use of the term occupation in political rhetoric reduces complex situations of competing...

    Examiner Columnist | 6/11/09 2:53 PM News fairly unbalanced. We report. You decipher. The U.S. occupation of General Motors, following a 'shock and awe' lightning-speed takeover, began this week with the appointment of a new provisional administrator, and establishment of a secure 'Green Zone' in the heart of Detroit. The White House went out of the way to assure local citizens that the occupation force will be temporary. "As the people of G.M. stand up, we will stand down," said White House press secretary Robert Gibbs. "The president has no desire to run a car company. The United States government...

    A Semi-News/Semi-Satire from AzConservative ^ | 4 April 2009 | John Semmens
    A contrite President Barack Obama apologized to Europeans for what he called a history of American arrogance. I am told by my advisors that the United States Army twice invaded the European continent during the 20th century, obliterating many cities by aerial bombardment, and destroying many precious artifacts Obama said. For this, let me express my sincere regrets on behalf of the American people. The President said he was shocked and appalled to learn that the US still has troops and weapons stationed in Europe. The continued occupation of what should be sovereign nations is, indeed, a stain I will...

    This should probably be in the humor section but since it really happened I guess not. Click the URL link for the video of the "final assault" on the Kimmel Dining Hall at NYU that's being occupied by hippie rejects and wannabe anarchists. It's hilarious and reminds me of a SNL skit. The comments section is good for a laugh too.

    Has China got a terrorist problem? The Uighur attack in the northwest was shocking but not a precursor to a bigger outrage Rosemary Righter The Olympics will open on Friday inside a triple ring of steel. Anti-terrorism precautions have been an unavoidable feature of the Games since the PLO massacre of Israeli athletes at Munich in 1972, but China has taken things to extremes. It has mobilised 110,000 police and other security forces in Beijing itself, plus 1.4 million security volunteers with Red Guard-style armbands and no fewer than 300,000 spy cameras. The security bill for Beijing alone exceeds 3...

    BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) — NATO nations agreed Thursday to broaden their peacekeeping mission in Kosovo to include training for the newly independent nation's security forces. NATO troops will help train Kosovo's troops even though a minority of member nations, led by Spain, have not recognized Kosovo's declaration of independence from Serbia in February. "With this decision, NATO will be able to assist Kosovo in building necessary, democratic security institutions," alliance Secretary General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer said at the meeting of NATO defense ministers. "This Kosovo security force will be lightly armed, democratic and will focus initially on crisis response...

    Military Occupation by: Ben Giles, June 04, 2008 David Edelstein argues for one major variable of success for military occupancy, and his research shows that the War in Iraq has done a poor job of recognizing this all-important factor. Edelstein, an assistant professor at Georgetown University, presented the findings of his new book, Occupational Hazards: Success and Failure In Military Occupancy, at the Cato Institute on May 29, a subject which moderator Justin Long called a terribly important topic, and terribly timely as well. If only we had had this book before the invasion of Iraq, said Jack Snyder of...
