July 18th, 2015 · 1 Comment · Iran, Israel

Uri Avnery July 18, 2015 The Treaty AND WHAT if the whole drama was only an exercise of deception?

June 27th, 2015 · 1 Comment · Gaza Strip, Israel, Uncategorized

Uri Avnery June 27, 2015 War Crimes? Us??? “WAR IS HELL!” the US general William Tecumseh Sherman famously exclaimed. War is the business of killing the “enemy”, in order to impose your will on them. Therefore, “humane war” is an oxymoron. War itself is a crime. There are few exceptions. I would exempt the war against Nazi […]

Uri Avnery April 4, 2015 Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Bomb? I MUST start with a shocking confession: I am not afraid of the Iranian nuclear bomb. I know that this makes me an abnormal person, almost a freak. But what can I do? I am unable to work up fear, like a real […]

November 28th, 2014 · 1 Comment · Israel, Palestine

November 29, 2014 THE PRESIDENT of Israel was aghast. Ruvi Rivlin, who was recently elected to the high but largely ceremonial post, is far from being a leftist.
