One congressional source told me that the word the King used was ‘imminent‘ with regard to the potential outbreak of war. Anon tipster at Zero Hedge says Israel will attack Iran, possibly by summer, with ok of US. I am also hearing that Israel will not attack w/o the OK of the US. Israel needs […]

Text of a speech by Bill Paparian at an antiwar rally in L.A. on Aug. 12, 2006 during the Lebanon invasion.

The AngryArab says the CounterPunch interview with Nasrallah, which they may have gotten from the MarxMail list, is fake. This “interview” with Nasrallah that is posted on Counterpunch is fake. I declare it to be a hoax, OK? I mean, it is so obvious. The guy does not sound like Nasrallah from the first sentence. […]

“I don’t think that Israel has any legal or moral justification for their massive bombing of the entire nation of Lebanon.
