Obama's Team of Rivals
[H]ow can he possibly expect to unite his antiwar base with his rightwing foreign policy team?
http://www.counterpunch.org/leupp12222008.html



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AFGHANISTAN & PAKISTAN



Selling Afghan Children to Survive

"I sold a piece of my heart to stop my four other children dying of hunger."
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/afghanistan/3901941/Afghan-parents-selling-their-sons-to-survive.html

. . .But Remains Defiant
"I will not apologise for what I did -- not now, not ever."
http://rawstory.com/news/afp/Iraq_shoe_thrower_to_go_on_trial_am_12222008.html

PALESTINE




Israeli Missiles Claim More Victims in Gaza
"His arm landed here in front of our window."
http://electronicintifada.net/v2/article10046.shtml

Israel Kicks Off PR Campaign for Escalated War on Gaza
"The state of Israel, and a government under me, will make it a strategic objective to topple the Hamas regime in Gaza."
http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/1048606.html

Siege-Buster Neta Golan Arrested Leaving Gaza
"How can an act against the collective punishment of over 1.5 million people be a crime? The policies of the Israeli State towards the people of Gaza is the real crime."
http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/WO0812/S00509.htm

Palestinian Homes Bulldozed In Jerusalem
[T]he Israeli government has given control of the archaeological park to radical Jewish settlers who explicitly state their aim as claiming the entire area for Jews.
http://news.sky.com/skynews/Home/World-News/Several-Arabs-Homes-In-East-Jerusalem-Have-Been-Bulldozed-To-Make-Way-For-Jewish-Settler-Families/Article/200812215178682?lpos=World_News_Carousel_Region_3&lid=ARTICLE_15178682_Several_Arabs_Homes_In_East_Jerusalem_Have_Been_Bulldozed_To_Make_Way_For_Jewish_Settler_Families

To Gideon Levy: Talk Is Cheap, Human Life Is Not
If Levy is truly interested in justice and human rights, then call unequivocally and immediately for good faith measures: an internationally monitored cease-fire and peace, for Israel to be a single state with equal human rights for all its citizens, acceptance of the right of return, elimination of all racist laws, full reparations, and a sincere apology to the Palestinian people.

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/23/nyregion/23homeless.html?ref=nyregion

Will Obama Fix the Economy?
[T]he depth of the economic crisis and the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan mean that the scale of reforms necessary to end the suffering go well beyond anything that Obama is prepared to endorse.
