Israel Police Attack Mourners Carrying Casket of Palestinian-American Journalist Shireen Abu Akleh

funeral

Two days after Israeli forces shot and killed Al-Jazeera reporter Shireen Abu Akleh, they beat mourners carrying the slain journalist's coffin.  The Israeli police, in full riot gear, confronted the funeral procession carrying Abu Akleh’s body outside the St Louis French Hospital in occupied East Jerusalem’s Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood. Several videos show the Israeli police hitting the people carrying the casket with clubs, nearly causing the body to be dropped.  https://twitter.com/HindHassanNews/status/1525081189102628866 Israel police claim that Palestinians began rioting before the...

Another Failed Prediction From the Global Warming Alarmists

pexels james cheney 7002772

In 2009, the BBC ran a reporting piece on the Arctic featuring the esteemed polar scientist Peter Wadhams of Cambridge University. The Catlin Arctic Survey, a project set out to answer vital scientific questions about sea ice in the Arctic, had just returned with its findings. Its central purpose had been to gather evidence on how long a warming planet could sustain an all-year ice cover at its northern pole: How long did the Arctic ice cover have left? The results, said Wadhams, who has studied the Arctic since the 1970s, were terrifying. The survey supported the “new consensus view that...

Salafis Throwing Bombs: How American and British Planners Partnered With Al-Qaeda Affiliated Groups At the Start of the Syrian Civil War

2011 syria protests.svg

Introduction In the mainstream view, al-Qaeda did not play a role in the Syria conflict until Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi dispatched his deputy, Abu Muhammad al-Jolani, to Syria in August 2011 to establish a wing of the group there, called Jabhat al-Nusra, or the Nusra Front. Additionally, al-Qaeda allegedly did not carry out any military operations until December 2011 and did not announce its establishment until January 2012. However, there is evidence that al-Qaeda affiliated militants were involved in the Syrian conflict much earlier. Saudi intelligence...

Is Virtue Signaling Vicious?

yardsign kindnessiseverything y9fu w7

Virtue signaling—the practice of highlighting what one takes to be one’s own moral superiority, often by loudly denouncing the character and comportment, including the speech, of other people—has become a dominant mode of rhetoric throughout social media and network television. Virtue theory, in contrast, is a teleological approach to normative morality concerned with how actions affect one’s soul or character. Historians of philosophy usually trace virtue theory to Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics, the first extant articulation of ideas such as that habits build character, and virtues...

Trial Begins For Female Cop Who Shot Minneosta Man, While Claiming To Reach for Taser

Just miles from where George Floyd took his last breaths on Earth as they were squeezed from his body by officer Derek Chauvin, Daunte Wright was targeted by police over an alleged expired tag. Because the American police state is a violent behemoth which knows no self-restraint, a few moments into the stop and Wright would be killed at the hands of those who claim to protect him. Immediately after killing Wright, the department claimed it was an accident but once video surfaced, all that changed. The Hennepin County medical examiner concluded in April that Wright “died of a gunshot wound...

Devil’s Advocate: How Turkey Is Seeking to Save Its Syrian Proxies

vladimir putin and recep tayyip erdoğan (2015 06 13) 3

On July 28, the U.S. Treasury Department, vowing to keep pursuing accountability for perpetrators of human rights violations in the country, imposed sanctions on the Turkish-backed Ahrar Al-Sharqia, a faction in the Syrian Civil war, that committed the outrageous murder of Kurdish female politician Hevrin Khalaf in 2019. The decision, made at the insistence of the Biden administration which can hardly be considered friendly towards Turkey, has made Ankara worry for the fate of its allies in northwestern Syria. Realizing a potential threat of further sanctions, Ankara was quick to take...

Double Standard Drones

On August 29, 2021, the U.S. forces in Afghanistan conducted an airstrike against an ISIS-K leader in Kabul. Tensions had been running high throughout the city, as just several days ago a deadly terrorist attack was carried out that killed over 70 people, including Afghanistan civilians and U.S. service members. A sigh of relief was felt across the country after the strike, bringing the knowledge that we were fighting back against those who were trying to use terrorism as innocent targets. Even though the U.S. was pulling out of Afghanistan, we were still bringing the fight to them!...

The War on Drugs for Her

She had just turned fifteen. She was a good girl, though some of her friends had a wilder side. They did like to party. She was excited to attend a music festival, a large one geared to people under eighteen. While she was there the police were conducting an operation to curb the use of recreational drugs. Twenty or so teenagers, including herself, had been taken almost at random by the police officers. It was a hot day, so she had worn very little. As she was taken away she was roughly handled. The police officers accused her of being in possession of drugs, a girl who had not even tried...

We are especially credulous about statistics or other information that sounds like objective facts. Unfortunately, we are not so scrupulous when it comes to accurately and non-misleadingly reporting facts. There is an enormous amount of disinformation in the world, particularly about politics and other matters of public interest. If the...
