“Union of Jewish Students admits to faked petition signatures” — 14 April, The Electronic Initfada. The Israel lobby’s campaign against the NUS is escalating and they are resorting to increasingly desperate measures.
“Israel is still arming Ukrainian Nazis” — 21 April, The Electronic Initfada. A video posted online this week shows that Israeli anti-tank missiles are being used by Ukrain’s Nazi Azov Battalion.
“NATO's secret Nazi armies” 🔒 12 April, Palestine is Still the Issue (subscribers only). Part one of a series on how the CIA and MI6 created Operation Gladio, a Cold War terrorist network led by Nazis.
“How the CIA and Italy's secret state manipulated the right and infiltrated the left” 🔒 20 April, Palestine is Still the Issue (subscribers only). In part two of the series, I look in more depth at how Italy’s deep state state manipulated both fascist and ultra-left groups and used outright terrorism to maintain political control.
“Watch the BBC's forgotten series on Operation Gladio” — 13 April, Palestine is Still the Issue (free). This Timewatch series would never air on the BBC today. The BBC seems to have totally forgotten about it and the only way to watch it these days seems to be pirated copies online. Here’s a YouTube copy that is watchable.

“Israel terrorizes Ramadan worshippers at al-Aqsa mosque” — My EI colleague Maureen Murphy covered all the latest Israeli violence in Jerusalem last Friday. As I write this, there are new reports of Israeli army thugs once again attacking Palestinian worshippers gathered for Ramadan prayers:
“New York Times’ ridiculous attack on me exposes its deceitful propaganda tactics” — Ben Norton responds to the New York Times’s proposterous disinformation campaign against independent journalists like him who dare to question NATO’s dishonest narrative in Ukraine.
Also on Norton’s new outlet Multipolarista, I found this recent two-part discussion with Pakistani scholar Junaid S. Ahmad to be a really enlightening explanation of the recent US-backed soft coup in Pakistan, which overthrew Prime Minister Imran Khan:
