Here’s an exclusive first-look at Anne Frank: Then And Now, which explores the lives of Anne Frank and the eight Palestinian girls cast to play her in a retelling of Frank’s famous diary. Part drama and part documentary, it was shot in Arabic with English subtitles. The film was shooting in Gaza in July when the Israel-Gaza war broke out, sending cast and crew scrambling for cover from incoming Israeli airstrikes. More than 500 Palestinian children and one Israeli child were killed during the seven-week conflict. The film, which is seeking distribution, was directed by Jakov Sedlar and produced by Auschwitz survivor and two-time Oscar-winning producer Branko Lustig (Schindler’s List, Gladiator). Anne Frank was written and co-directed by Sedlar’s son, Dominik Sedlar.
United Statesforeign policyafter World War II often failed to accomplish its objectives and behaved counterproductive. Force replaced diplomacy. Military solutions trampled negotiations. Counter-insurgency produced insurgents. The U.S. identified anti-communism as its principal guide to foreign policy during the Cold War, but similar policies continued after the Soviet Union’s collapse and disintegration.As the balance of terror receded, the United States confronted global terrorism, which obligated the unique world power to initiate a new war, the ‘war against terrorism.’ This war does not recede; it grows, and as it grows, it becomes connected to another war, ‘the war against drugs.’ In Afghanistan, the U.S. wages a war against the poppy fields, the same war the Soviets initially fought. In Mexico, a border war of drug violence exceeds the terrorist violence against America.
Incoherent behavior has the…

La Libye a disparu des radars médiatiques. Avant l’assassinat macabre du frère Guide Mouammar Kadhafi par la clique des démocrates autoproclamés conduits par le nègre de maison Barack Obama, chaque jour, la presse décriait le « régime autocrate », la « dictature de Mouammar Kadhafi » etc. Aujourd’hui, les défenseurs du peuple libyen se terrent. Quoique, le pétrole va provoquer leur retour sur le sol libyen.

Why is Israelbombing the Syrian Government…? A number of news sources reported on December 7th that Israeli warplanes attacked two separate areas close to Damascus, including a target at the city’s international airport.
This was reportedly the fifthunprovoked Israeli attack on Syria in the last eighteen months. Syria hasn’t declared war on Israel; neither has Israel formally announced war with Syria – these military assaults on Syria are therefore nothing less than a war crime.

Thanks to the fact that much of the western media deliberately avoids exposing Israeli criminality, probably for fear of being accused of anti-Semitism, much of the brutal ugliness of the Jewish state remains unknown to millions of Europeans and North Americans.
This is the reason that many people in the west are still buying the big, obscene lie that Israel is a western democracy which upholds basic human rights and civil liberties. But the facts on the ground are much uglier than many people think, irrespective of how vociferous and dogged Israeli Hasbara operatives get when defending and justifying Israeli misdeeds and crimes.
The truth of the matter is that institutionalized oppression, racism and terror against the Palestinians have always constituted and continue to constitute Israel’s modus operandi.
Israeli propaganda will concoct a thousand lies and point to a thousand red herrings to divert attention from the subject. They would…
