The 4th Media: After “Liberation,” US To GIVE Control Of Raqqa To Rebels, Not Syrian Government by Whitney Webb. The Syrian city of Raqqa – the “stronghold” of terror group ISIS – will be governed by a “civilian council” with the support of U.S. troops following its “liberation” from terrorists. Their refusal to return the city to the Syrian government will only worsen the nation’s six-year-long civil war.      {Doesn’t the US openly and unabashedly fight for DAESH-ISIS, Israel and the Royal Saudis against the Syrian people? Why then would the US give the Syrian government what rightfully belongs to the lawful Syrian people under the UN Charter?}


Consortium News: The Bait-and-Switch ‘War on Terror’ The U.S. “war on terror” has always been a bait-and-switch scam on the American people, with Washington putting the desires of its Mideast allies ahead of defeating Al Qaeda and ISIS, Gareth Porter reports for Middle East Eye.

Former Israeli Defense Minister Confirms Israeli Collaboration With ISIS In Syria By Richard Silverstein
In the midst of complaining about the Islamist threat to Israel and the world, Bibi Netanyahu conveniently forgets that his own country enjoys a tacit alliance with ISIS in Syria. It is an alliance of convenience to be sure and one that’s not boasted about by either party. But is not terribly different from one than Israel enjoys with its other Muslim allies like Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States. No Israeli till now has admitted it has forged an alliance with ISIS.

COMMENTARIES

21st Century Wire: ALEPPO: After Devastation, The Rehabilitation (Part One)      {Those who believe that that is Islam are mentally demented. Islam is a religion of intellective peace, peaceful coexistence, and democratic, equitable proportionate sharing and giving according to the Quran.

The Century of the Self. How politicians and business learned to create and manipulate mass-consumer society. Adam Curtis, The Century of the Self tells the untold and sometimes controversial story of the growth of the mass-consumer society in Britain and the United States. How was the all-consuming self-created by whom, and in whose interests? Freud provided useful tools for understanding the secret desires of the masses. Unwittingly, his work served as the precursor to a world full of political spin doctors, marketing moguls, and society’s belief that the pursuit of satisfaction and happiness is man’s ultimate goal.

“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.
