Washington Whitewashes Israeli Murder by Stephen Lendman Why not. It whitewashes its own. Washington is a rogue terror state. So is Israel. It denigrates non-Jews.

Guilt by Accusation

Guilt by Accusation by Stephen Lendman Police states govern this way. Israel's one of the worst. Racism is institutionalized. Arabs have no rights. They're considered subhumans. They're viciously persecuted.  World leaders turn a blind eye. Washington provides generous support. It's longstanding policy. Bipartisan support affirms it. Doing so conspires with high crimes.  Palestine is Israeli... Continue Reading →
