The bickering, backstabbing and pseudo-intellectual debate of student socialism.

Get yer Independant only 70p

With most of the press so far up Israel’s propaganda machine its made the history of Palestine invisible Oren Ben-Dor’s article really stood out as telling it like it is. With so few voices speaking out for Lebanon and Palestine in the press lets celebrate the few we have…

What exactly is being defended by the violence in Gaza and Lebanon? Is it the citizens of Israel or the nature of the Israeli state? I suggest the latter. Israel's statehood is based on an unjust ideology which causes indignity and suffering for those who are classified as non-Jewish by either a religious or ethnic test. To hide this primordial immorality, Israel fosters an image of victimhood. Provoking violence, consciously or unconsciously, against which one must defend oneself is a key feature of the victim-mentality. By perpetuating such a tragic cycle, Israel is a terrorist state like no other.

And in the same issue the always brilliant Mark Steel,

“But this is the fault of Hizbollah, for using the rabbits as shields of fur. You tell me how we are supposed to distinguish between civilian rabbits and terrorist rabbits. Let me show you evidence of terrorists being hidden in safe hutches.”

And a front page on why we should celebrate immigration. If it wasn’t for the bit on fish it’d almost be a socialist paper.

I think the press coverage has been mainly biased in favour of Hezbollah.

Adele you're so full of shit. The news doesn't even question Israel's right to attack Lebanon, let alone its right to occupy Palestine or to exist as a racist apartheid state that enshrines anti-semetism. If that isn't biased I dont know what is.

How many times have we heard these buzzwords... seriously, there won't be any convincing going on around here. the only people that get convinced in politics are the unpoliticised. People are not idiots, so leave the sloganeering out. treat them like grown ups.

What's all this about fish?

Apparently there are a lot of sun fish near devon and well.... usually there isn't.

They're big grey things that live in the water.
