By Ali Abunimah: A New York City bookseller faced threats of violence from Israel supporters before it caved in to demands to sign a statement repudiating the nonviolent BDS – boycott, divestment and sanctions – movement for Palestinian rights.

The statement, written by a local rabbi, also declares that Israel has a “right to exist.”
Columbia University Students for Justice in Palestine and Columbia/Barnard Jewish Voice for Peace are reaffirming a call to boycott the bookseller, Book Culture, unless it rescinds the statement.
Book Culture issued the statement in the wake of threats and intimidation because it was promoting a children’s book called P is for Palestine.
The petition, signed by 18 faculty members and almost 200 students, alumni and community members, accuses Book Culture of “bowing to pressure from pro-Israel groups that seek to silence literary representations of the Palestinian right to resist.”

No Fly Zone Over Apartheid Jewish State Israel

Interview with Gilad Atzmon
on recent news by Alimuddin Usmani
Alimuddin Usmani: On the 10th of February, Syrian anti-aircraft units managed to use an old Soviet anti-aircraft missile built in the sixties to shoot down an Israeli F-16.
 What is the significance of this military incident?
Gilad Atzmon:  I do not know much about the type of anti air missiles the Syrians used.  It seems that the Israelis were also perplexed by Syrian anti air capacity. But what we do know is that the Israeli F-16 wasn’t in Syria’s air space. It was well within Israel, in fact not too far from Haifa’s sky. This means that Syria possesses the ability to impose a no fly zone over northern Israel. This is undoubtedly  a positive development. It may even restrain Israeli aggression.
AA: According to Israeli minister Bennett, "Israel must act systematically against the Iranian octopus".
GA: The reference to Iran as an octopus is new to me. I have seen the octopus imagery used to portray the idea of Jews having  domineering powers.  The image I am referring to is one of octopuses  decorated with a Star of David and holding the planet in their hands.

The Deadly Rule Of The Oligarchs

By Chris Hedges: Oligarchic rule, as Aristotle pointed out, is a deviant form of government. Oligarchs care nothing for competency, intelligence, honesty, rationality, self-sacrifice or the common good. They pervert, deform and dismantle systems of power to serve their immediate interests, squandering the future for short-term personal gain. “The true forms of government, therefore, are those in which the one, or the few, or the many, govern with a view to the common interest; but governments that rule with a view to the private interest, whether of the one, of the few or of the many, are perversions,” Aristotle wrote. The classicist Peter L.P. Simpson calls these perversions the “sophistry of oligarchs,” meaning that once oligarchs take power, rational, prudent and thoughtful responses to social, economic and political problems are ignored to feed insatiable greed. The late stage of every civilization is characterized by the sophistry of oligarchs, who ravage the decaying carcass of the state.
These deviant forms of government are defined by common characteristics, most of which Aristotle understood. Oligarchs use power and ruling structures solely for personal advancement.
Oligarchs, though they speak of deconstructing the administrative state, actually increase deficits and the size and power of law enforcement and the military to protect their global business interests and ensure domestic social control.

Tesco Mocks Domestic Abuse To Sell … FISHCAKES!?!?!?

'Coercive behaviour is: a continuing act or a pattern of acts of assault, threats, humiliation and intimidation or other abuse that is used to harm, punish, or frighten their victim.'
By Jordan Holbrook: Since January last year, Tesco has been running their ‘Food Love Stories’ campaign where they tell a story every month to accompany a new recipe they are advertising. One popular recipe is Jimmy’s steak for two, a recipe for, you guessed it, steak!
The recipe advertised this month is Jane’s Fish Cakes ‘For Two, Or One’ and, on the face, the recipe seems fairly okay. What has angered many, however, is the so-called love story.

Jane’s boyfriend has done something to upset her, he forgot something to which he apologised for afterwards. However, Jane does not feel that an apology is enough and, when preparing dinner later that night, decides he doesn’t deserve any and deprives him of some. It’s an act of revenge, as Tesco put on the recipe’s website:
Revenge is a dish best served in the form of fishcakes. That’s what Jane thinks when she falls out with her boyfriend. These fishcakes are his favourite so she’s making them for dinner… but only for herself.

Feminists Succeeding In Making Women A Turnoff For Men

By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts:
Brothels now employ inanimate sex dolls in place of women:
Clandestine sex doll brothel opens in Paris
France’s first so-called sex doll brothel is operating in secret within the 14th Arrondissement of Paris – where clients can engage in virtual reality romps with silicone mannequins.
The bohemian quarter of the city is home to cultural sights such as the Paris catacombs and the Vladimir Lenin Museum. But now a new agency, Xdolls, has opened an establishment in the area where people can get around French laws banning payment for sex services.
Xdolls say clients can book time with silicone casts such as Sofia, Kim and Lily – a 26kg doll said to have “a big chest” and be the “most manageable” in the secretive brothel.
“We offer private relaxation areas, equipped with a TV screen and an audio headset (for VR), to make your appointment with the doll of your choice comfortable. In addition, if you make your payment by credit card, only a discreet and undetectable mention will appear on your bank statement,” the Xdolls website states.
