“It is very clear what it [Operation Protective Edge] is: a war driven by the hankering yet callous lust of the imperialist capital of a colonial state to expand its appropriation of Palestinian natural resources and profit at the severe expense of the Palestinian people.”

[Photo credit: Al Jazeera/Rueters] Note: Death toll numbers and headlines linked will no doubt transform over time as the ‘situation develops’ and information becomes more concise.

By Aqil Abu Dharr Imperialism has been envisioning and working toward a Middle East under their control and domination for a long time. The State of Israel is a bulwark for imperialist domination. It was imperialism that imposed Israel upon the people of Palestine without their approval and it is imperialism which maintains this Zionist […]

By Mattihjs Krul, writer at http://www.mccaine.wordpress.com.. ..While every conflict has its specificities, it is impossible to understand the nature and trends of the Israeli state without an understanding of the greater logic of which it is but one example.
