Perhaps France fell first, in 1991, with its loi Gayssot. Then (or slightly before) fell Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Belgium, not necessarily in that order. All these countries, and of course Israel, have capitulated to historical revisionism in the most abjectly desperate manner imaginable: they now officially, with laws, threaten people …

Seven years ago I pulled off a coup that no one else had ever been able to do, and that no one else has been able to do since: I was able to get a solidly revisionist film screened at a mainstream film festival. The film was titled El Gran …

Yesterday's op ed by Daniel Ellsberg (of 1971 Pentagon Papers fame) provided a stunning retrospective on what Ellsberg calls the "different America" that dealt with him 40 years ago vis-a-vis the America that NSA Leaker Edward Snowden faces today for having committed "crimes" very similar to those committed by Ellsberg. …

There is a global network of lawyers and judges coordinated from offices in Tel Aviv devoted to the advancement, in their respective countries, of the interests of the state of Israel—by the agency of their countries’ legal systems.

I am writing in response to Executive Director Nossel's recent letter regarding the release of reporter Jason Rezaian and poets Fatemeh Ekhtesari and Medhi Mousavi. Thank you for the good new!

I have never really used this venue for my own personal messages, but two events of the recent past lead me to do so. Truth is, I should have sent out such a message right after the first event that threw my life into turmoil, but the second event following in its wake spoiled this plan, hence the delay. Let me explain...

Ich habe diesen E-Mail-Rundbrief nie wirklich für meine persönlichen Nachrichten verwendet, aber zwei Ereignisse der jüngsten Vergangenheit haben mich nun dazu veranlasst. Tatsache ist, dass ich eine solche Botschaft direkt nach dem ersten Ereignis, das mein Leben auf den Kopf stellte, hätte aussenden sollen, aber das zweite Ereignis, das darauf folgte, hat diesen Plan zunichte gemacht, daher diese Verzögerung. Lassen Sie mich das erklären...

Permettez-moi de vous expliquer...
