Trump’s inclination to withdraw from a three-year-old international agreement that curbs Iran’s nuclear program is likely to strengthen the country’s hardliners even if the withdrawal would put responsibility for mounting economic and social discontent squarely on the shoulder of President Hassan Rouhani’s government.

Palestinian Authority Collaborated with CIA to Spy on Palestinian Dissidents

Jerusalem (MEMO) – As I’ve written in this column several times before, the “Palestinian Authority” is, at best, a misnomer. It is neither particularly Palestinian nor even remotely authoritative. Since its inception in the mid-nineties, the PA has been made to serve the interests of the Israeli occupier. Indeed, it was entirely designed with this […]

US Media Turn to ‘Superhero’ Pence to Combat Korean Olympic Peace Threat

Pyongyang (FAIR) – North Korea, like virtually every country on earth, is using the Olympics this week as an opportunity for political theater, and this has greatly upset many in US media.
