Mahmoud Abbas’s dangerous grandstanding 30.9.2014 Washington Post: Editorials
THE GOOD news from the Middle East is that the truce between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip has held for a month, and Hamas appears ready to make concessions to avoid a resumption of fighting. Last week the Islamist movement renewed its agreement with the secular Fatah party to turn over Gaza’s government and security control of its borders to the West Bank-based Palestinian Authority. Though it’s not clear that the accord will last, Hamas is emerging as the loser of the summer war. According to Israel, as much as 80 percent of Hamas’s military arsenal has been destroyed , and its poll ratings among Palestinians are sinking as it fails to deliver the gains it promised from the ...

Of course Australia is going back to Iraq. That's how a US client is expected to behave | Antony Loewenstein 23.9.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
Rock solid but uninfluential: thats Australias relationship with the US. And with so many journalists and politicians on the lobbyist drip-feed, is it any wonder were going back to war? Back in July, Australian Opposition Leader Bill Shorten delivered a speech at the Australian American Leadership Dialogue at the New York academy of sciences. It was full of motherhood statements We are bonded, we are blood cousins praise for Israels innovation (no mention of the Palestinians) and clichéd rhetoric about a pioneering American legacy that inspires Australians. The assembled journalists would have clapped with appreciation, though the vast bulk of the event went unreported. Its extremely rare for any journalist to criticise the meeting . If they do, their invitations from the US lobby tend to get lost in the mail. I guess whats striking about it though is how hard people in the Labor Party, people in Australian politics in general, work at being liked by the Americans, and theres nothing wrong with being ...
