The PA Rises up to Fail the Palestinians at Every Occasion – The Palestine Chronicle

It is a pity that Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas wasted so much time in declaring that no one has the right “to speak on behalf of the Palestinian people.” The statement was made within the context of the US-brokered deal normalizing relations between the United Arab Emirates and Israel, which has allegedly stalled annexation of land from the occupied WestContinue reading “The PA Rises up to Fail the Palestinians at Every Occasion – The Palestine Chronicle”

Netanyahu Regime Terrorizes Gazans – Stephen Lendman

Largely abandoned by the world community, Palestinians are isolated on their own in pursuing their fundamental rights Israel denies them — besieged Gazans harmed most.

Who Profits from the Beirut Blast? – American Herald Tribune

The narrative that the Beirut explosion was an exclusive consequence of negligence and corruption by the current Lebanese government is now set in stone, at least in the Atlanticist sphere.
