What we're being told about ISIS just doesn't add up

A few debate-changing points of information about ISIS:

1. The trapped Yesidis were rescued not by US airstrikes but mainly by a ground offensive by kurdish groups -- anarchist-oriented YPG and nationalist-opportunist PKK who both represent a broad multiethnic regional population and have relatively progressive goals.

An appeal from Australian Jews to the Australian Jewish community

Over 165 Australians of Jewish identity and background have signed an Open Letter (below) calling on their fellow Jews to break their silence on the onslaught on Gaza by Israel. Among the signatories are actress Miriam Margolyes, union leader Kim Sattler and writers Sara Dowse, Antony Loewenstein and Susan Varga.
Vivienne Porzsolt of Jews against the Occupation, which organised the Open Letter, said ‘Silence is consent and as Jews, we must oppose atrocities taken in our name. Our public stand demonstrates that many Jews reject the brutal occupation of the Palestinians by Israel.

Australia must break its silence on Gaza

Dear friends,
I write to you with deep sadness about the situation in Gaza. I have received many inquiries about what the Greens are doing in response to the Israeli invasion.

Last night, I watched a very powerful clip from British Channel 4’s Jon Snow about his recent trip to Gaza. He speaks movingly about what is happening to the children of Gaza. Over 1310 children have been injured and over 166 have been killed.

Down with the latest criminal abuses by the Israeli state! Solidarity with the Palestinian proletarian masses!

From that moment, it took 18 days before the bodies of three young settlers were found.
