The longtime Ambassador, a 40-year veteran of the U.S. State Department, recently made headlines in Time, Newsweek, Reuters, Politico and NPR for a farewell speech he made to his State Department colleagues during which he took a parting shot at President Trump for the latter’s widely assumed (but yet to be acted upon) desire to come to an accommodation with Russia.

VT: NEO – Syria, Fake News, Fake War and Fake Everything By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor. [ Editor’s note: It was time for Gordon to do one of his retrospective dot connectors. It is not that we are running out of current news; but because after years of covering a story, its beginning, middle and ending can get blurred.
We also like to keep pointing out how quickly mainstream media seems to forget, as they never put much effort into retrospection, even though it is easier to see what and why things were done after a few years, which makes you more aware of what is going on now.

VT: Iraq to continue operations against Daesh positions in Syria By Jim W. Dean, Managing Editor[ Editor’s Note: This could be a big game changer. The active phrase to pay attention to here is “neighboring states”. He already has approval from Syria with some initial strikes already carried out on the border area that goes to Deir Ezzor, a safe area for Daesh for a long time. It seems that control of the borders has finally been recognized as a do or die factor in the terror war. What other states does Abdi have in mind, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Iran, Kuwait or Jordan? Off the top of my head I can’t imagine any that would give their permission, so what is Abdi trying to stir up here? Could it be that he wants to expose Daesh bases in some of these countries that are operating with impunity? If ignored will he borrow the “Bush doctrine”, to attack terrorists wherever they can be found? .       {If Muslims understand the mission of the Quran and the real Islam of Mohammad, they would be able to destroy DAESH and its brainless cronies and conniving colonialism ideologically. Alas they love their pagan style of worship }

VT: Jeff Bezos, Amazon endorse holocaust denial! By Kevin Barrett. In what amounts to a ringing endorsement of the claims of Holocaust revisionists, Amazon.com has apparently concluded that their books cannot be effectively refuted – and therefore must be banned. M.S. King, author of The Bad War, has been notified that his book has been banned from Amazon. The explanation:
We’re contacting you regarding the following book: The Bad War: The Truth NEVER Taught About World War II. During our review process, we found that this content is in violation of our content guidelines. As a result, we cannot offer this book for sale.

“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.
