COMMENTARIES

ICH: There Will Be No Russophobia Reset By Pepe Escobar. In the end, there was hardly a reset; rather a sort of tentative pause on Cold War 2.0. Interminable days of sound and fury were trudging along when President Trump finally decided NATO is “no longer obsolete”; still, he wants to “get along” with Russia. Just ahead of meeting US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in Moscow, President Vladimir Putin had stressed on Russian TV that trust (between Russia and the US) is “at a workable level, especially in the military dimension, but it hasn’t improved. On the contrary, it has degraded.”. Trump may have finally shown his real face, a “housebroken dog to neocon dogma.”


ICH: Mounting Incitements to War With Russia. Trump may have finally shown his real face, a “housebroken dog to neocon dogma.” Villainizing the Kremlin—without much evidence—for crises from Washington and Europe to Syria, Ukraine, and Afghanistan is increasing the possibility of a US-Russian war. By Stephen F. Cohen. Stephen Frand Cohen is an American scholar and professor emeritus of Russian studies at Princeton University and New York University.


ICH: The Mother of All Bombs: How badly did it hurt IS in Afghanistan? “[Dropping the bomb] was a trick to show the world that their mission was going well. But this wasn’t the type of bomb they showed in the media. The bomb did nothing.” The BBC’s Auliya Atrafi found fighting continues close to where the MOAB hit

VT: Why No Politician Will Ever Question The Holocaust Mythos
By Ian Greenhalgh         {The profession of politics is as old as that of the prostitution. Practice of prostitution however is generally forced on prostitutes by their dire need to practice it,  politics is generally practice by voluntary immoral want and the individual’s corrupt aspiration for affluence, prestige and influence}


VT: DAMNED DISGRACE: Pimping for Israel remains undiminished since UN report branded it an apartheid state
By Stuart Littlewood


VT: Censors attack False Flag Weekly News, Gilad Atzmon By Kevin Barrett


VT: The Trump Administration, Israel, and North Korea. By attacking Syria and inventing a conflict with North Korea, Trump has obviously grabbed his own voters by the hair of their heads and dragged them back to their oppressors, namely, the Neoconservatives and the Israeli regime. In fact, it was Israeli officials who postulated that “North Korea presents the greatest threat to global security. By Jonas E. Alexis


VT: Assad: Deep State and NWO agents want to control the entire world By Jonas E. Alexis. Assad: “What is happening to Syria, to Korea, to Iran, to Russia, and maybe to Venezuela now, aims at re-imposing American hegemony on the world because they believe that this hegemony is under threat now, which consequently threatens the interests of American economic and political elites.”


VT: Just a matter of (quasi) Semitic semantics, after all? By Jonas E. Alexis. Shlomo: It is not my Holocaust, it is the Holocaust! Six million! Think, six million!


“Practical Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Impasse”

This newsletter provides what is missing in the US mainstream media and what the American public needs to learn about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. We hope you never fail to make the connection between APPAF’s reported articles and the cause and effect of the Palestinian problem and the vicious Israeli occupation as its illegitimate heinous perpetrator

It follows the Admonitions of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson:
“Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people” – John Adams – Second US President
“Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” Thomas Jefferson

We also invite you to visit www.APPAF.org website, and send us your feedback.

Please don’t forget that Palestine is as much of an American problem as it is a Palestinian and an Israeli problem.
