Watch now (11 mins) | The State Department gets tough questions from Max Blumenthal and Said Arikat on Israeli war crimes. I ask questions throughout but am never called on.
Big time kudos & thanks to you and Max!
outrageous and shameful but speaks to his fear of your questions!..thank you
I am against the idea of religious states. There is no place for religion in government.
I think they've declared you a non-person in the hope that you'll go away. I'm not sure that's necessarily a bad thing because it means they're afraid to take you on. For a journalist like yourself, it's certainly frustrating but their refusal to acknowledge you publicly is in itself a tacit acknowledgement of your impact. Interpret it as a badge of honor and just keep putting their feet to the fire. Thanks Sam.
. . . AND FOR THESE ENDS
to practice tolerance and live together in peace with one another as good neighbours, and
to unite our strength to maintain international peace and security, and
to ensure, by the acceptance of principles and the institution of methods, that armed force shall not be used, save in the common interest, and
to employ international machinery for the promotion of the economic and social advancement of all peoples,
HAVE RESOLVED TO COMBINE OUR EFFORTS TO ACCOMPLISH THESE AIMS.
Accordingly, our respective Governments, through representatives assembled in the city of San Francisco, who have exhibited their full powers found to be in good and due form, have agreed to the present Charter of the United Nations and do hereby establish an international organization to be known as the United Nations.
The sick and twisted US/Israel governments project racism and xenophobia onto Palestinians (and other poor brown people in the world) while gaining wealth and power through genocide. A perfect plan for the sadistic actors pulling the strings.
Thanks for being there and continuing to try to afflict the powerful. With questions.
