  • Easy way to save energy

    Did you know that cell phone chargers use power if they are left plugged in and not charging a phone. That is true of most electrical appliances that are plugged in but turned “off”.

  • Israel War Crimes Update

    The U.S. and Britain are alone in their opposition to a an immediate cease fire in the current Israel-Lebanon conflict.

  • Israel, Hizbullah, and the U.S.

    Juan Cole puts it well: Israeli spokesmen are saying that they want to finish off Hizbullah. But you can’t finish off a mass movement among 1.35 million people. Besides, there wouldn’t be any Hizbullah if Israel had not invaded Lebanon in 1982 and occupied the south for 18 years. Israel’s grabby occupation radicalized and helped […]
