Israel's Anti-Rachel Corrie Verdict (tags)
Israel's verdict against Rachel Corrie, blaming her for her own death, was paid for with our tax dollars, $6 billion a year, as Israel is just an American military base to protect US oil profits in the Middle East and Israel does not make one move without explicit instructions from the US capitalist class, represented by the US government.
20 Dead after Israel Attacks Gaza Humanitarian Ship in Int'l Waters (tags)
At least 20 people are dead and many are injured on the lead ship of the Gaza Humanitarian Aid flotilla after the Israeli military, paid for with US tax dollars, boarded and attacked the unarmed people. Contrary to Israel's lies, obviously prepared in advance, no one attacked these heavily armed thugs; this is a humanitarian vessel with civilians on board, and Israel continued its attack after the white flag was raised, all in international waters. Support this website and protest this outrageous violation of international law by US/Israel as Israel does not exist for 1 second without US tax dollars.

The vast majority of the 1,200 Lebanese killed by Israeli bombardments were civilians; one in three was a child.
