The arrest and kidnapping of Julian Assange from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London has sent shockwaves among justice and freedom-loving people worldwide. The Hamilton Coalition to Stop the War, a Canadian peace movement, issued the following statement regarding Assange’s ordeal.
In a long list of outrageous pronouncements and actions, the latest by the Trump regime on April 8 to designate Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) a “foreign terrorist organization” is the most outlandish.
Instead of looking at the symptoms, the root cause of deficit, whether in trade or other areas, must be understood. It is riba (usury) that is responsible for the misery of people. All scriptures prohibit it but vulture capitalists thrive on it.
The US has targeted Monica Witt, a US air force whistler-blower, as well as Press TV and the New Horizon conference in order to cover its own nefarious acts globally.
The Israel lobby’s buying off of nearly every senior politician in the United States, facilitated by our system of legalized bribery, is not an anti-Semitic trope. The lobby’s campaign of vicious character assassination, smearing and blacklisting against those who defend Palestinian rights—including the Jewish historian Norman Finkelstein and university students, many of them Jewish, in organizations such as Students for Justice in Palestine—is not an anti-Semitic trope. It is a fact.
America is in the midst of a civil war. The Reds and the Blues that fought in 1861 never disappeared. They are very much alive and there is every likelihood that the US might disintegrate in the new bust-up.
The Americans are dishonest to the core. Not surprisingly, the Taliban do not trust them one bit. The Americans want to retain military bases in Afghanistan; the Taliban will have none of this. Who can blame them?
Donald Trump has touted his “America first” mantra but his overriding concern, as that of almost all members of Congress and other parts of the American establishment, are devoted to protecting the illegitimate Zionist entity. Ordinary Americans suffer as a consequence.
By kidnapping Press TV anchor Marzieh Hashemi and holding here hostage, the US regime has once again exposed its true face: it is not a regime governed by the rule of law; gangsters run this lawless state.
Notwithstanding its pretentious claims to being the “sole superpower”, the US is in terminal decline politically, economically and socially. It can no longer orders others to follow its commands.
Almost every policy that the neocons could think of has failed. In their desperation, they attacked a courageous but defenseless Press TV anchor, Marzieh Hashemi but even this has backfired on them.
Press TV anchor, Marzieh Hashemi was released from detention today (January 23). She appeared before a grand jury in Washington DC and after completing her testimony, she was released.
Marzieh Hashemi, one of Press TV’s most popular anchors, has been detained in the US. The American-born newscaster had arrived at St Louis Lambert International Airport in the US on January 13 to visit her sick brother and family members when she was detained.
That the US is an outlaw regime controlled by gangsters is not in doubt. What is truly appalling is that it presents itself to the world as if it is governed by the rule of law. It tortures innocent people but insists “it is not who we are.”
Even with a buffoon in the White House and an assertive Russia under Putin, the latter remains vulnerable in Central Asia where the US has much room for mischief.
The US mid-term elections have produced some interesting results that will surely force many to think again: Islamphobes have lost big time and Muslims have won. This gives cause for reflection.
America is the only country in the world that uses sanctions as a weapon of war. The list of sanctioned countries is growing but apart from creating mass starvation and deaths, the Washington warlords have achieved little.
No one wants peace more than the people of Yemen led by the Islamic resistance movement Ansarallah. It is the US-backed Saudi aggressors that are playing games.
Who would have imagined that after waging a 10-year war in Afghanistan, the Russians would be back as mediators and peacemakers in the now US-occupied country.
The US-imposed sanctions on Iran have largely failed primarily because the rest of the world is fed up with US bullying and blackmailing tactics. Instead of Iran, it is the US that stands totally isolated.
